Traveling for shoots is what makes my heart happiest. My creativity starts flowing the most in new places, so I was thrilled when Victoria + Dave asked us to come to Charleston, SC to photograph their engagement shoot.
Victoria + Dave live in Charleston, but will be getting married in Richmond next fall. They wanted these photos to express their love of the city and the home they have begun to buid together.
We started the shoot amongst the amazing oak trees in the middle of downtown Charleston. For their first look, Victoria + Dave brought the elegance with a suit and floor length black dress. Then we shifted and made things a little more casual with an outfit change and walk down the famous rainbow row. I loved all of the brightly colored homes and gorgeous landscaping.
We finished up by heading to the waterfront for a little dancing, running round, and to celebrate them crushing their engagement shoot.
David and I spent the night in Charleston and stayed at the Spectator Hotel. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay. The brought us a complimentary bottle of champagne, dessert, breakfast in bed....and our room was AMAZING.
We only got to enjoy one meal while in Charleston, so we chose to go to The Ordinary. The food was INSANE. I did not understand what half the items on the menu were, so we trusted our server's input and ordered a multitude of small plates. Every bite blew me away. There was so much flavor in every dish. If you love seafood and are a bit of an adventurous eater, you definitely need to the add The Ordinary to your list!
This was such a fun adventure for us, and I cannot wait to photograph Victoria + Dave's wedding in Richmond in September!
