Need professional photography services in the Greenville area?
The impulse to save our most cherished moments is a powerful force. When you ask people to choose three possessions to save from a burning house, one of the most common answers is a photo album.
Maybe that’s because photographs tell the stories of our lives – a timeline of memories filled with faces we love and places we have been. Photos speak directly to our emotions; they capture our attention and give us the power to show people who we are and what we do.
When composed professionally, they shine a light on our personalities, relationships, and families. After all, every human emotion has a place in photography.
Whether you need to steal someone’s attention with a stunning headshot or want to save your most loving family moments, I can help.
My name is Adam Chandler, and as a professional photographer in Greenville, SC I delight in the adventure of photography. I constantly immerse myself in whatever genre I’m shooting and seek new ways of bonding with my subjects to provide them with a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Unlike other photographers, I use my technical knowledge of photography, ability to connect with people, and artistic creativity to produce memorable photos for my clients. I believe that providing folks with a client-centric experience sets me apart from other photographers in Greenville.
Some professionals may be wonderful composers but cannot understand what their customers want. Others are great at connecting but don’t have the training or experience to make their work truly special.
When you choose Adam Chandler Photography, rest assured that you are hiring a photographer with creativity, imagination, and a keen eye for detail. You won’t ever have to worry about sacrificing one quality for another.
I have a wide range of professional experience in the world of photography. I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of subjects, from local families to corporate business professionals in the Lowcountry. As a photographer in Greenville with more than a decade of experience, my top priority is not only to capture beautiful images but also to provide you with a relaxing, enjoyable photography session.
Now that you know a little about my background, let’s take a look at some of my most popular photography services in Greenville:
Our company mission is to exceed expectations
Your family is probably the single most important part of your life. From children to grandparents, and even nieces and nephews, building a strong family bond secures your legacy for the future.
You will grow and change with your family throughout life and encounter many memorable milestones along the way. One of the best ways to document these milestones and relive your memories is with a family photo session.
I love family photography and strive to pour my soul and creativity into each shoot. While each session is different, I approach each one with the same goal: to capture the unique personality, affection, and energy of each family so I can provide authentic, engaging pictures and a uniquely fun experience.
Whether you have a newborn baby that you want to celebrate or have grandparents in town for a visit, Greenville is an amazing city for family photography. There are so many locations in the Lowcountry that make for great family photography backdrops:
- Beaches – Folly Beach, Sullivan’s Island, Kiawah Island, Hilton Head, Edisto Beach
- Popular Places – Washington Square, Broad Street, Ravenel Bridge
- Historical Sites – Greenville Battery, Fort Sumter, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, Rainbow Row
Whatever location you choose for family photography in Greenville, the Holy City is a wonderful place in which to immerse yourself with friends and family.
As a family photographer in Greenville, one of the reasons why I love working with families so much is the opportunity to get creative. I gladly accommodate the style preferences my clients are looking for – be it more traditional, posed images, or candid, playful pictures.
I use a relaxed style of direction to get your family engaged in our photography session, to help get authentic expressions that are full of life and happiness.
Here are just a few reasons why families choose Adam Chandler Photography for their family portraits:
Document Family Growth
With each year that passes, we grow – both literally in size and also in mind. Having annual family photographs helps document the advancements and growth you have in life. Family photography in Greenville is a great way to remember the quirks or personality traits in your children, or to immortalize an important event like a high school graduation. Since we grow and change so fast, many families arrange for yearly family photo sessions to see their family’s growth year over year.
With each year that passes, new milestones are achieved. From a child’s first steps to a sibling getting married, there is no better way to remember such happy events than with photographs. Whether you are welcoming a new puppy into your life or just landed the job of your dreams, celebratory pictures of your family will give you heartwarming memories for the rest of your life.
The smiling, radiant face of your daughter after losing her first tooth. The loving glance between newlyweds. The happy father, beaming with pride after his son scored his first touchdown. As a professional photographer in Greenville, SC, drawing out these feelings and emotions and capturing them on film is one of my greatest joys. Not because the pictures are great, but because you, as my client, will have so many years of enjoyment looking back at them.
Portraits and Headshots in Greenville, SC
A great headshot shows you at your best – whether you want to impress a prospective employer or need professional photography for your website. In today’s world of digital dominance, having a professional headshot or portrait of your team is becoming a necessity. It’s no surprise, then, that headshots and portraits are among the most popular genres of photography.
Headshots can be tricky, mostly because many humans just aren’t very photogenic. I know that for some clients, it can be hard posing for a professional photo; knowing their headshot or portrait might make the rounds with future employers.
Fortunately, I have years of experience taking professional headshots. Unlike some amateur photographers, I know how to draw out your personality to capture you at your best. I know how to compose your portrait based on the industry you work in or the goal that you have with your photoshoot. Clients choose Adam Chandler Photography because I advise them every step of the way – from the clothes they should wear to the expression they should have.
A professional headshot or portrait is an investment into your personal brand, and here is why:
Show Your Personality
A great headshot can help give people an idea of your personality before you sit down to meet them. For instance, a serious glance at the camera might convey determination. A big smile may say “I’m approachable.” My goal is to match your expression with your personality with every headshot or portrait I take.
Show Your Professionalism
Clients, collaborators, investors, and employers are much more likely to interview you or call your business if you look professional. You have taken the time to invest in your brand, and the important people you’re sharing your headshot with will appreciate your effort.
Stand Out on Social Media
Many of my clients make appointments for headshots and portraits when they want to stand out from the crowd on social media. Whether you own a business and need to create new social media pages or you are looking to network with recruiters on LinkedIn, a headshot lends an air of professionalism that you won’t get with a selfie.
Show Off Your Current Look
Having outdated headshots can send a message of inauthenticity. When you have up to date headshots, you’re showing clients and employers that you are confident, committed, and authentic.
Qualities of a Great Photographer in Greenville, SC
Being a great photographer means more than owning the best pieces of camera equipment. While a great camera gives clients the clearest, highest quality photos available, it won’t help me connect with my subjects. I strive to give clients a fun, enjoyable photo session. I use my knowledge and experience to help set up the perfect shot. After connecting with my client, I draw out their personality to produce a stunning final product.
Clients choose Adam Chandler Photography because I am different from my peers in the best ways possible. Here are just a few qualities that my clients appreciate:
I consider photography to be an artform – one that requires a creative mind and heaps of imagination. A great photographer needs to be able to take something ordinary and transform it into something beautiful. A back-alley puddle is about as mundane as it gets, but with the right technique and a little imagination, it can turn into something with much more substance.
This quality might seem like a no-brainer to most, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen photography that is missing something. More often than not, the photographer isn’t passionate about the subject or model that he or she is photographing.
Patience is an essential quality for all great photographers. Some days, picture lighting won’t cooperate. Other days, it’s hard to get that big happy smile from younger clients. That’s why patience and flexibility are so important. As a professional with years of experience, I understand that I must have the patience to deal with whatever comes my way and the flexibility to make the most out of any situation.
All photographers are created differently. Some photographers are more aloof and put in the bare minimum effort when it comes to speaking with clients. Others, like myself, relish the opportunity to talk with customers. That’s because interacting with subjects allows me the chance to see their vision and transform their idea into art. Talking with subjects lets me draw out their emotions and put younger subjects at ease. People skills are a must in this industry. Luckily for me, it’s one of my favorite parts of the job
Eye for Detail
As a professional photographer in Greenville, SC I am meticulous when it comes to details. Every element of a photograph should be reviewed to ensure cohesiveness. You might think that a family photo session is cut and dry in terms of composition and detail, but all elements of a photograph must come together to convey the vision that my clients desire.
When you hire me as your photographer, I take all the following elements into consideration:
If you have a goal you want to construe with your photographs, helping you achieve that goal is often found in the details.
“I am proud to say that I am very passionate about my work. However, I’m also passionate about giving my clients the most enjoyable, care-free photography experience possible. My passion drives me to work harder, push farther, and strive to be better every day that I wake up.”Adam Chandler
Ready to Get Started?
One of my favorite things to do is to talk to clients about their vision. If you are in need of professional photography, let’s talk today about what you have in mind. Whether you’re looking for family photography in Greenville or want new headshots for your employees, I am here to help every step of the way.

Glimpses of Greenville: 1900 to 1910
Walking around downtown Greenville today, changes, growth, and progress are seen all around. There are many that embrace the changes and growth of the city. In fact, many have moved here because of it. There are plenty of people who don’t like the present state and direction in Greenville, too.

Walking around downtown Greenville today, changes, growth, and progress are seen all around. There are many that embrace the changes and growth of the city. In fact, many have moved here because of it. There are plenty of people who don’t like the present state and direction in Greenville, too. These opposing views are not new to our city and will always be here. Having indulged in reading thousands of news articles from Greenville’s nineteenth and twentieth century newspapers, a recurring theme is the remarkable growth and progress of the city. An example from 1904 in many ways sounds like it could be written today:
“Even the man who lives here cannot realize the wonderful growth of the city, nor can the visitor from an older community where buildings are huddled closer together and vehicles rattle over Belgian blocks and possibly cobble stones … the city is too large and covers too much territory to be taken in at a glance. To comprehend the size of the city one must stand upon some of the hills for which it is famous and look down upon the handsome homes and public buildings that shelter its population, or watch Main Street, with its rows of splendid stores, where thousands of dollars change hands daily in the ordinary business of a city of merchants and manufacturers.”
Greenville’s street railway began construction in 1900 and soon expanded throughout the city. Large textile mills continued to be built outside of the city limits, beginning with Brandon, Monaghan, Fork Shoals, the Carolina, and Woodside mills all building up in the first years of the new century. Union Bleachery opened as the first bleaching operation in the state. Meanwhile, others like Mills Mill, Poe, American Spinning, and Camperdown No.2 expanded their operations and villages.
Now-familiar neighborhoods surrounding downtown like Earle Street, Hampton-Pinckney and Alta Vista began to build out with many of the homes that remain today. Main Street and side streets like Coffee, Washington, Laurens, McBee and Broad were built up with larger and taller brick buildings than in the previous century. The stage was being set for a level of growth and prosperity that Greenville hadn’t yet experienced.

GREENVILLE, S.C (WSPA)– Summer sports programs are underway, and it will soon be time to register your child for athletic programs for the new school year.
As part of our “Ask the Expert” series, with Bon Secours St. Francis Health, 7NEWS spoke with a family medicine physician about the importance of sports physicals.
Sports physicals help to identify pre-existing conditions that could lead to sports-related injuries or make it dangerous to play.
“The whole purpose of all this is to make sure that the athlete is as safe as possible for entering in the sport”.Dr. Nathan Gasque, Family Medicine Physician, Bon Secours St. Francis Health
Doctor Nathan Gasque, a Family Medicine Physician, says it’s important for your child to get a sports physical before they play.
“We sometimes help identify issues that we weren’t even aware of such as blood pressure issues, vision issues, things like that,” Gasque said.
The best time to get a sports physical is four to eight weeks prior to the start of the season.
“A lot of people may come in a day or two before the first practice. If there are issues arising, then it kind of impedes into the play. We recommend at least one to two months before the season starts,” Gasque said.
Most family medicine or primary care providers can perform the sports physical, which usually includes a conversation about your child’s medical history and a physical exam.
“Most athletes, most kids, are actually pleasantly surprised to see how easy it actually is,” Gasque said.
During your visit, the provider will likely check your child’s heart, lungs, stomach, ears, nose and throat. They will measure their height, weight and blood pressure. They will also do a vision test.
“In addition to that, we’re going to do some simple coordination. They may have to do a squat, little duck walk, hopping on one leg, very basic things to make sure that they are capable of performing athletic endeavors,” Gasque said.
Depending on the league and level, it varies as far as how often athletes should get sports physicals. Doctor Gasque suggests one to two times a year at least.
If there is a change in leagues or sport, then a new sports physical is recommended.
Carolina Corner: Greenville doctor leans on experiences from UofSC medical school
Two years after completing her residency, Dr. Brittany Kizer Stovall is using experiences gained at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville to serve her patients with compassion. “It’s super-rewarding — especially being in South Carolina, being home bred,” Stovall says. “It’s been wonderful.”...
Two years after completing her residency, Dr. Brittany Kizer Stovall is using experiences gained at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville to serve her patients with compassion.
“It’s super-rewarding — especially being in South Carolina, being home bred,” Stovall says. “It’s been wonderful.”
Stovall, who was part of the school’s first class to complete residency in 2019, practices at Internal Medicine Associates of Greenville for Prisma Health-Upstate. She is a general practitioner in outpatient primary care.
Like many fellow alumni and others currently in residence, Stovall stayed in-state to serve South Carolinians and improve the health and well-being of those in her community.
“Being with patients through tough times and going through life with them is very rewarding,” she says. She also enjoys working with residents.
“The best part of this job is helping people,” she says.
Working in outpatient primary care, Stovall has used the School of Medicine Greenville’s focus on compassionate care to better serve her patients. The school encourages its students to see health care beyond the office by getting to know patients, their families and the social determinants of health, such as obstacles at home, expenses and transportation issues.
Stovall says those experiences at the school provided a foundation for her care today.
“You take care of the patient, but you also take care of the whole picture.” -Dr. Brittany Kizer Stovall
“That whole premise of getting to know patients really transitioned into residency, helping in hospitals discharging patients and making sure they had everything they needed,” she says. “As the main doctor now taking care of them, I love to ask questions about their home life, like what family they have close by.
“You take care of the patient, but you also take care of the whole picture. Training in med school and what it stood for really helped me throughout residency and now private practice,” she says.
Additionally, the school’s partnership with Prisma Health-Upstate, together providing comprehensive medical education to students, proved invaluable for Stovall as she transitioned away from residency. Overall, the School of Medicine Greenville’s culture is what stood out the most for her.
“That sense of, you are our student, and we will help you become the best physician you can be, is really amazing,” she says. “That encouraging spirit and nature was great. That’s what really sets it apart.”

Growing up in Greenville, Lauren Stephens found her passion for serving the community.
As a student, she recognized inequities and socioeconomic differences with kids in her class, and while in middle school, she attended Buncombe Street United Methodist Church, where her youth group volunteered at the Salvation Army.
Her journey created a desire to serve others, and she is now the director of social services at the Salvation Army of Greenville County. On Wednesday, she hoped to evoke the same desire in students as part of the Christ Church Episcopal mission camp.
Each day this week, the students are partnering with nonprofit organizations in Greenville. They’re starting each day learning about who’s being served and why, said Hannah Flack, Christ Church’s director of youth ministry.
Afterward, the students perform a project or experience and close with a debrief, she said “where we talk about who we serve, why it’s important, and how it can change the way we move through the world.”
Wednesday’s session involved a partnership with organizations that help fill the needs of people experiencing homelessness - Triune Mercy Center, the Greenville Homeless Alliance (GHA), the Salvation Army, and Cleanville Greenville.
When Christ Church contacted the organizations, they came together to determine what type of experiences they could give the youths educationally to draw connections for them and where they could help them see the bigger picture of social injustice and paint a picture that they can grow to recognize as part of their community, Stephens said.
“Then, also emulate the service we’re trying to share with the community of the many ways of our direct touches – our shelter program, our recovery programs, and then sort of those more higher level avenues that you just have to understand in order to assist a person on their journey to standing back up,” she said.
The day started at Triune Mercy, where Furman “Tommy” Foster talked to them about the experiences in his life that led to homelessness. They also heard about the work and efforts of the Salvation Army and GHA.
The students participated in several service projects as well as a simulation, where they took turns carrying a backpack with contents that many who are homeless would carry.
One of the goals of Wednesday’s program was to “access the heart of these kids to recognize that monetary privilege is something that you should want to use to make the world a better place,” Stephens said.
“I want your spirit to be turned on to the idea of helping those who have less than you do, and I think exposure creates understanding and understanding generates tolerance and tolerance creates successes,” she said.
During the debriefing, a few students said what surprised them most was learning about the number of students experiencing homelessness in Greenville County Schools. They’d worked with GHA coordinator Susan McLarty to determine the total reported – 827- this past school year in high, middle, elementary and special schools.
One student said her takeaway is to never judge a book by its cover. You never know what a person is going through.
The money students paid for camp is being divided and donated to the nonprofits partnering with Christ Church for the mission camp this week.
Triumph's game against Forward Madison ends in 2-2 draw
GREENVILLE, S.C. — The Greenville Triumph fought back to a 2-2 draw against Forward Madison FC in its Wednesday night matchup at Triumph Stadium. Down 2-0 within the first 20 minutes, the Triumph scored two unanswered goals of their own from Andrew Booth and Marios Lomis.

GREENVILLE, S.C. —
The Greenville Triumph fought back to a 2-2 draw against Forward Madison FC in its Wednesday night matchup at Triumph Stadium. Down 2-0 within the first 20 minutes, the Triumph scored two unanswered goals of their own from Andrew Booth and Marios Lomis. The lone point keeps Greenville undefeated through their 2021 home schedule to date, while the two goals allowed mark the team's fourth consecutive match without a clean sheet.
A goal conceded in the first fifteen minutes has become common practice during the grueling stretch, and tonight was no different as Forward Madison opened the scoring in the 11th minute of action when a penalty kick was awarded. Aaron Molloy put one right down the middle to give the Mingos a 1-0 lead.
Minutes later, a turnover in the midfield put Greenville in retreat while the ball found former Triumph striker Jake Keegan down the left flank. Keegan held the attack and passed to the wide open run of Molloy, who found the back of the net once again on a missile strike from distance. Molloy's second goal was the first goal conceded during the run of play since their weeknight match against NCFC.
Down 2-0 with plenty of game left to play, the fatigue was becoming obvious both mentally and physically, as the wear of five matches across 13 days had the Greenville players exhausted and without much relief on the bench. Despite the fatigue, the Triumph continued to push and were able to break through in 29th minute when Aaron Walker played a key ball to switch the point of attack, finding Gavilanes 1v1 on the left side. Gavilanes got to the byline and served a perfect ball into the box that only needed a toe poke from Andrew Booth, as the young professional netted his second goal of the season and put Greenville back in the game 2-1.
The second half was back and forth between both sides. Greenville was the victim of a few unlucky deflections but were finding more opportunities in the final third. In the 66th minute, Greenville was awarded a penalty kick after a deliberate handball in the box. The Dutchman Marios Lomis stepped into the box, calm and collected, and was able to put the Triumph back even at two apiece.
The last 20 minutes of the match saw a number of fouls, but it felt inevitable that Greenville would score a third. Up until the final whistle blew, Greenville continued to knock on the door, but they would settle for the point and 2-2 draw to remain undefeated at their home stadium. Tonight's result is the fourth time out of six meetings that Forward Madison and Triumph SC have played to a draw.
Greenville returns to action Saturday, June 26, traveling to CHI Memorial Stadium in Chattanooga for their first matchup with the Red Wolves. The Red Wolves currently sit just below Greenville in the League One standings.
