We’re pretty limited for beautiful locations here in the Carolinas, so I always jump at any opportunity to take on a photoshoot in Charleston, SC – one of my personal favorites.
Tuan & Katrina’s Charleston engagement shot wasn’t the first I’ve done there; however, it was my first time experiencing the enchanting Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. The spanish moss, magical light, natural environment, and, of course, the lovely couple made everything feel that much more dreamy. Everything about the plantation was so alluring (mosquito bites aside) that it’s where we spent most of the day shooting until we were ushered out because a real ceremony would commence… We then finished off in downtown Charleston as the sun went down quickly.
It’s always easier to capture a couple’s love when it’s organic and they’re comfortable with one another. Katrina was the real champion here in facilitating the candid shots, which we all know require a little acting, and her fiancé, Tuan, followed her lead shortly after. You can just tell they’ll share a lifetime of love and happiness by perusing a snapshot of their session below, and I couldn’t be more proud capturing it all.
