Magnolia Plantation Engagement on Film in Charleston, SC | Thao + John

I have been talking to Thao for over a year now about her wedding, and I just couldn’t WAIT to officially meet her! (And John too!) We went back and forth for a while trying to figure out the perfect spot for their engagement pictures, and MAN did we hit the jackpot. I am SO excited to share these images!

Not only was Magnolia Plantation a stunning backdrop for them, it was the perfect place for their pups to tag along! The plantations close to the public around 5:00, which meant we had the place all to ourselves after that.

It was hot, and we all got eaten by mosquitos, but I wouldn’t trade it—the outcome is my favorite! I enjoyed my time with John + Thao so, so much, and I just feel extremely honored to have been chosen as their photographer. I can’t WAIT to photograph Thao in her beautiful wedding dress, and then the two of them on one of the most special days in their life.

Enjoy my favorite engagement portraits of them, and stay tuned for what’s to come!

All images photographed on Fuji 400h medium format and 35mm film.
