Jenny and Jay come down to Charleston every year for their family vacation, and decided it would be the perfect spot for their engagement photos. I have to agree. I always tell people that I have such a hard time taking photos here, because every step I take I need to stop and take another photo. There’s just that much beauty here! The day before I met up with them, one of my close friends texted me and said, “The engagement session you have tomorrow wouldn’t by chance be for Jenny and Jay would it?” Apparently they had grown up together in Cincinnati, and my friend put two and two together that they were down here for an engagement session and I had told them I was photographing one that day. Oh small world connections :) Not only that, but I lived in Cincinnati for a few years back in the day. So we talked about all the things I miss about that place…which consists almost solely of food. Skyline Chili and Graeters ice cream? Yes please.

As soon as I met these two I was immediately drawn to how sweet they are. They have some of the best smiles I have ever seen, and there were no shortage of smiles and laughs as we walked around. They are both so easy to talk to, and you can tell they are just the type of people who light up a room when they walk in. I’m so in love with these photos! Jenny and Jay, thank you for spending an evening in Charleston with me!

I met Gabrielle and Tom outside of Southend Brewery, one of their favorite hangout spots when they attended College of Charleston. They now live in Louisiana, but came back to the place where they met for their engagement photos. One of the perks of my job is being able to meet some really cool people, and these two were no exception. Gabrielle is so full of life, and was laughing the whole session. Tom egged her on, and ended up in fits of laughter as well. I mean, let’s be honest; any couple who is willing to make fish faces in front of a giant fish mural is pretty cool in my book. I’m so glad that they were able to come back to their old stomping grounds to take some photos with me!
