In conjunction with The Greenville Chamber and The BMW Performance Center, I was able to capture moments of an economically changing event for South Carolina but especially for Greenville and surrounding areas. Chamber CEO members were welcomed to the BMW 12.5 million dollar State-Of-The-Art Performance Center. Not only a driving school; the Performance Center is equipped with a skid pad, water walls, slolam course and the most professional instructors available. I personally took a "hot lap" - taking the passenger seat and allowing one of the driving instructors to attack the track! I recommend consulting your physician before experiencing this intense ride. The guest speaker was distinguished Cyclist George Hincapie. George is the only teammate of Lance Armstrong's to ride along side in each of the record-breaking seven Tour De France wins. Hincapie is also the only member of Team Lance to have won a Stage Race during the Tour De France other than Lance himself. George's story is inspirational and one of courage and determination. Congratulations to Lance, George and all the members of Team Lance for all their efforts in both cycling and in the many projects they support including The Lance Armstrong Foundation. They continuously prove the meaning of LIVESTRONG!

For years my best friend, dating back to childhood, Fred, believed a second chance at love would come his way. Thanks to Stacy his belief became a reality. A quiet and intimate ceremony held at Falls Park in Greenville, SC, united the couple. Though a limited amount of people attended, the photographs remain cherised by the newlyweds and their families and friends. There are an average of 2.2 million weddings per year but only half of those getting married hire a professional photographer. Regardless of your wedding budget or the amount of people attending your wedding, I urge everyone to capture the special event in photographs for historical purposes and so the next generation can see where it all began. You won't regret it. Just ask Fred & Stacy!
