Lovers of the outdoors and recently relocated to South Carolina for work, Ryan and I hopped on a plane and flew to Charleston to meet up with Kelly and Jim. I had always wanted to visit and had dreams of photographing amongst the dreamy spanish moss at sunset. So when Kelly and I began planning the details of their engagement session months before this, it was a no brainer to schedule their fall engagement session in Charleston.
Ryan and I arrived to our Airbnb a day before the session so I could travel around to the planned locations and make sure each would be just as we wanted it to be the next day. My brain was on visual beauty overload, but in the best way. I was running on pure adrenaline and excitement (and maybe a few biscuits here and there and by few I mean a lot). We travelled to Folly Beach, Charles Towne Landing Historic Site, and wandered around downtown Charleston and its colorful architecture and scenic water views.
The next day Kelly and Jim arrived in town and the rest is dreamy sunset history. Not only did I get to create photographs I’d been dreaming up forever, but I got to share in Kelly and Jim’s beautiful relationship and witness their love firsthand. Their laid back personalities and go with the flow natures made for a flawless session. It was a true testimony to when a couple puts their full trust in me and that experience is always humbling. We topped it off with dinner at one of their favorite restaurants and, you guessed it, more biscuits.
It was a whirlwind of a weekend and one I would go back to many times. Until next time, Charleston. <3
