I met up with Sarah + Logan, who came down from Charlotte, at the end of September for their sweet engagement session in historic downtown Charleston. On the most perfect fall evening, we spent time walking through my favorite neighborhood, South of Broad, and chatting all about their wedding plans. I love shooting engagement sessions with my couples. Not only is it a wonderful time to get to know each other, it also makes the wedding day a little less awkward since they have already met me. I highly recommend doing an engagement session if you or your partner are even a little bit nervous about having photos taken. It can make a big difference, for sure!
When I spoke with Sarah + Logan, they told me that they wanted a classic feel to their engagement photos – so the stunning architecture of Charleston, along with charming iron gates, gas lamps, and brick streets were the perfect backdrop for this session. As we walked together, Sarah + Logan chatted about their wedding plans, as well as what they are most excited for on their wedding day. And believe it or not, as we were strolling, we came upon the very house where they first met at a party! So random – and of course we had to take some photos there! I had the very best time with them and I’m already so excited for their wedding celebration coming up this April! Without further ado, here are some of my favorites from Sarah + Logan’s classic downtown Charleston engagement session…

I first met Carrie a few years ago when she interned with a local wedding planner. We stayed in touch through the years and when she got engaged to her longtime love, she asked me if I would photograph her wedding. It’s always such an honor when someone in the wedding industry asks you to […]
I recently wrote a post about how much wedding photographers cost in Charleston, but I wanted to write another post to talk about the cost of wedding photographers in general. Total wedding investments are all over the place and the “average” wedding investment can differ from location to location. For example, on average, a wedding […]
When I got the opportunity to shoot Angela + Alexander’s destination in Barcelona, Spain, I almost couldn’t believe it.
