Edisto Beach, SC, residents, Steve and Dianna Kilpatrick, are photographers and owners of Colorful Things Photography. What began as a hobby evolved into a full time photography business when they retired and their vacation home became their studio and permanent residence. The husband and wife team have been active portrait photographers on Edisto since 2006, with Steve as the primary photographer and Dianna the editor and business manager.
During the off season on Edisto, they can be seen walking the beach spotting and photographing the abundant winter bird life or looking for those all too brief sunrises and sunsets. But with the beginnng of the summer tourist season, they get busy photographing families and couples.
It isn't unusual to see Steve and Dianna early in the morning or late in the evening with families or wedding couples in tow looking for that perfect sunset or sand dune that will make the right backdrop for their beach portraits. Early morning sunrise portraits at Botany Bay are a favorite of their engagement portrait couples.
