A Garden Engagement Session in Columbia, SC | Evans + Anna

I’ve done many bridal sessions at these beautiful gardens in Columbia, but this was my first engagement session here and I was so excited about it! When I walked up to the gardens at the start of the session, the gates were LOCKED. We couldn’t get in! Closed for a private event, the sign said. […]

Plantation Home Engagement Session in Effingham, SC | Matt + Helen

What originally started out as portraits on the beach ended up being the most beautiful morning at a plantation home in a town I had never even heard of. I didn’t know there were so many small-town gems in South Carolina! A few years ago I got to photograph a few different engagement sessions and […]

McLeod Plantation Engagement Session in Charleston, SC on Film | Denton + Brandy

Ahhh, the magic of Charleston will never get old. Especially when I get to photograph it as a backdrop for sweet couples in love. I got to visit a venue I’ve never been to before for this session, and it didn’t disappoint. We started off the session in downtown Charleston and then we headed to […]

Sunset engagement photos on film at Wavering Place | Morgan + Allie

Wavering Place NEVER disappoints, but man, it is just magical at sunset. I could photograph every single session here and there would always be a new, special spot to explore. The grounds are just so amazing, and springtime at sunset just adds that extra special magic!  I met Allie at Starbucks before she booked me […]

Lake Murray Dam & State House Engagement Session | Laura + Josh

The weather was supposed to be rainy and gloomy on the day we scheduled Laura and Josh’s engagement session, but then when it came, it was PERFECT outside. (South Carolina weather is fun, right?) We couldn’t have planned for a more perfect day. The sun was out and the temperature felt so great. We met […]

SC Mountains Engagement Session at Table Rock State Park | Paige + Will

Paige recently moved to upstate South Carolina and knew she wanted to do her engagement photos somewhere in the mountains. We searched and searched and searched for the perfect place, and she finally suggested Table Rock State Park.

USC Horseshoe and Williams-Brice Stadium Engagement Session | Caitlyn + Travis

When Caitlyn said she wanted to do her engagement session at Williams-Brice, I got excited! I’ve done an engagement session inside the stadium before, and loved it. I mean who wouldn’t?!
