Where should we take our engagement pictures? My first response to this question is always, what is something/somewhere that has meaning to you and of course is there a certain look or feel you want to achieve?
Even if you are not from Charleston but perhaps taking your photos here there are places and locations that can provide meaning. Maybe you guys
love coffee or frequent a favorite speak easy. I would then recommend lets find a cute café or bar and snag a few photos there. In case you don’t know by now getting married and life is an adventure! We all have so many stories. Your engagement photos will be a story too!
In light of a couple of my favorite places for these photos are:
Downtown, Charleston, SC: I feel so fortunate to have such a diverse. Looking for big oak trees in your backdrop – it’s got that, historic architecture – check, water view – check, urban scenery or quirky cafes…check and check. The best part is in a 1-2 hour stroll you find all of this and you never know when that brick wall or alley way is the perfect spot to snag a few photos. It’s amazing how different couples can be but downtown always allows us to find intimate spaces for those special photos. On top of it – it’s a story to tell! You’re not just showing up somewhere for photos you’re getting to experience your engagement session and Charleston!
Your Neighborhood: This is where you go on walks every day, it’s possibly the place of your first home together, and you have memories of your neighborhood. Then we get to pull out a camera and document your engagement in a place that already carries so much meaning. You can’t find a place more unique either. PS – I drive and fly for photos. ; )
Both of these spots just build on the story and adventure your love and in such a special way. : )
