As a prior English teacher, I love telling each of my couple's love story. Each story is unique and in a culmination of love and a little planning, the wedding day brings that love to life in front of family and friends. As a lover of heirlooms and legacies, it's a joy to be alongside each of my couples as they create memories that will last forever for their children and grandchildren!

During a short excursion down to South Carolina, my friend and I had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful bridal session in the streets of Downtown Charleston. We visited Rainbow Row, the Pineapple Fountain, and the Battery before venturing off to some side streets to grab a few creative shots!
