Amber and Stehle’s Last-Minute Downtown Charleston Wedding Portraits

……….This is definitely the latest anyone has ever gotten in touch with me: I received a slightly-panicked phone call around 2 PM (three hours before we had a scheduled shoot with another couple) from Amber and Stehle – there had been a scheduling mix-up with their photographer and they were left with no one to shoot their wedding portraits! Luckily, I was free at the time and live downtown so was already nearby when they rang. After filing their paperwork at the courthouse we headed out to the streets to take some downtown Charleston wedding portraits – and they couldn’t have turned out better!

……….I’m a total sucker for day-after shoots. They give you as a couple the freedom to enjoy your wedding day without feeling like you have to be torn away from your friends and family to go out and take portraits. That means we can take a few hours a day (or several depending on your schedule) after the ceremony to wander through the streets of downtown, or explore Magnolia Plantation and take some amazing photos! Amber and Stehle were relaxed and poised throughout the shoot (despite having an unbelievably stressful morning). They and their families were gracious and even cheered us on later when they saw us later on while were were out shooting with our second couple of the day! Amber’s family came all the way over from France for their special day, and I’m so glad that we were able to be there to capture these memories for them.

……….Amber and Stehle actually just welcomed their first child into the world a few days ago so a huge congratulations are definitely in order! Best of luck!

Brad and Elizabeth’s Beach Wedding on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

An intimate beach front ceremony, a crisp April afternoon, and a private home reception on Hilton Head Island – what could be better?

Hilton Head is a place special to Brad. His family has been travelling here since he was young. He and Elizabeth vacationed here, too, and upon deciding to marry here have created yet another special memory to cherish on the Island.¬†Elizabeth’s elegant dress was paired perfectly with a blush sash and pearl jewelry. The soft blush accent color was picked in the roses in her bouquet and complimented by the darker shades from the anemones.

Having clients with an interest in photography means that I have more time and freedom for portraiture on wedding days, which is always inspiring. Lucky for us as well, the weather and sunset were in full cooperation (the gnats are another story, though!). From beachfront to woodland to a crumbling mill, we had ample time pre-and-post-ceremony to cover all of the bases and then some. Brad and Elizabeth were a gracious couple that knew how to celebrate in style – thanks to all of the vendors for coming together to make this special Hilton Head wedding possible!

Anna and Cole – Downtown Charleston Engagement Session

Anna and Cole nailed it. I can give all the direction in the world, but there’s nothing I can do to fake the simplicity of two people being in love with with one another.

Let’s be honest, engagement sessions certainly aren’t natural things. Most people don’t get photographed being cuddly with their significant other on a regular basis. The best piece of advice I can give anyone, more than clothing choices or anything else, is just this. Relax with your partner and be present in the moment. That’s probably great life advice too, eh?
