A professional photographer whose work has appeared in Sports Illustrated and Ebony, Wilson Studio owner Wes Wilson lends his lens to capturing glamorous portraits and special occasions. Instead of gluing macaroni likenesses of new family members to old portraits, update images of the current clan during a studio session ($60/hour). Snapshot connoisseurs expertly execute specific session styles, such as urban, pizzazz, and glamour, transforming negative film into positive mementos. Location sessions ($90/hour) find subjects frolicking through their favorite parks or kicking it in their own backyards, and special beach sessions ($169+) immortalize sand castles before they can be sacked by Visigoths. Wilson Studio also commemorates monumental moments by photographing weddings ($2,000+ for packages) and high-school senior portraits.

Nestled several miles north of Augusta National Golf Club, the 27-hole course complex at Mount Vintage Plantation Golf Club resembles golf’s most hallowed grounds in ways that extend beyond geographical proximity. Designed by Tom Jackson, the course rolls through curtains of carolina pines, speckling nearly 2,000 acres with white-sand bunkers and scenic water features that test the accuracy of every swing.
The two original nines, the Chester and the Vintage, shine with visually stunning vistas and elevation changes—on the Vintage course alone, 8 holes boast a rise or fall of 30 feet or more. Opened in 2008—eight years after its forebears—the Independent course puts water in play on all but 1 hole, testing golfers’ abilities to manage high-pressure shots or skip balls close to pins.
