A Charleston Engagement | Allie + Isiah

A Charleston Engagement Session

Allie + Isiah

Allie and Isiah are set to move out of Charleston soon for his deployment orders. Before they left, they both agreed that getting engagement photos done in Charleston, where they met, was a must! I was so happy when Allie reached out to book a last minute session. Engagement photos are always special, but I love the little added bonus of it being where they met! I love thinking that as they start their new life together in a new city, they can have photos of Charleston hanging on their walls :)

I had so much fun meeting their pupper, Dash, and he had so much fun chasing the other dogs around the park. We got him to sit still for a few, though :) As we walked down the street with Isiah in his Navy uniform, a woman walked out of the shop she owned. She was oohing and ahhing over how sweet they looked, and she snapped a few photos on her iphone to send to me. Everyone in Charleston loves a little romance! Allie and Isiah, good luck on your new journey!

A Downtown Charleston Elopement

Caitlyn + Dylan


Caitlyn and Dylan had the sweetest ceremony at White Point Gardens in downtown Charleston. I know I say it so often, but I just LOVE elopements! Every time I photograph one, I’m struck by how personal, intimate, and intentional the ceremonies are. Listening to their vows put the biggest smile on my face! Dylan told Caitlyn, “When we stand in front of each other, like we are now, the rest of the world always disappears.” You could tell that they only had eyes for each other as they read their vows. The two of them are adventurers at heart, and they told me of their cross country travels, living in states all over the country, and getting married after just two months of being engaged! If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know how I feel about adventuring with the people you love. I talk about it a lot, and I feel so fortunate to get to meet so many couples who feel the same way! Caitlyn and Dylan, I think you’re entering into the greatest adventure of all! Cheers to many amazing years to come!

Thank you to the vendors who made this day possible!
