An Elegant Wedding at a Private Waterfront Home

It’s an honor to be trusted to photograph anyone’s wedding. The energy and time invested in making sure that your wedding day is absolutely perfect is mindblowing and to be put in a position to capture something as intimate as a wedding day is a truly massive responsibility, but it’s doubly so when the person asking is a close friend.

From the incredible private waterfront property, complete with it’s own avenue of oaks, to the beautiful sunset and personal touches at the reception, this is one of those weddings that just makes me happy to be a wedding photographer.

Kind Words

When my SO and I got engaged, we planned our wedding date around three things: a full moon, high tide, and Nick’s availability. I’d spent several summers assisting local wedding photographers, and Nick’s particular blend of technical expertise, creativity, professionalism, and fun always stood out. Even with our high expectations, we were BLOWN AWAY by our wedding photos. If you’re searching for a wedding photographer in the Charleston area (or beyond!), here are a few things that set Nicholas Gore Weddings apart: 1. Nick and Cushla’s portraits and candids are incredible. In our photos, they not only captured everyone at their best, but used their eye for movement to visualize the sweeping joy we felt from the wide shots, to the intimate portraits. 2. Nick’s a lighting wizard. Natural light, portable studio lights in softboxes, flash – he’s a master of them all. There are a lot of photographers who make great daytime portraits, but few capture the rest of the wedding with equal skill and beauty, especially from a lighting standpoint. Whether your reception is in a dark hall, or somewhere with a crazy mix of colors and light sources (like our oak-canopied and café-lit evening), you can rest assured that everything from sunset glamour shots, to late nights on the dance floor are beautifully and accurately represented. Check out his blog for examples! 3. Nick is SO fast! Big group photos fly by thanks to his expertise, and he can weave through a reception (and a dance floor) like nobody’s business. Plus, he will send you GREAT shots of your groups – not an overwhelming stack of various people blinking or looking away. 4. Last, but certainly not least, Nick and Cushla are insanely fun. You will spend most of your day with your photographers, and it’s a true joy to spend it with people as sweet, witty, and relaxed as N&C. The tone they set was reflected in our photos and in our happy memories, and at least a dozen members of our family and bridal party approached us to say the same. In short, I cannot recommend Nick and Cushla more highly, and feel so honored to have their stunning work as the document of our wedding day for the years to come!
