Over the summer, I had the absolute JOY of traveling to Charleston, South Carolina to capture Cat & Alex’s engagement session! Let me tell you, this location has been on my bucket list for SO long! When they told me they wanted their engagement session to be in Charleston, I nearly jumped out of my chair! My little photographer heart was ecstatic!

Cat & Alex attended college at the College of Charleston, so naturally we had to start our session where it all started. We explored the college grounds, and eventually found ourselves exploring the vibrant streets of downtown – from Rainbow Row to St. Michael’s Alley! It truly is a magical city! This definitely has to be one of my favorite engagement sessions to date. Their June 2021 wedding at The Seclusion in Lexington, Virginia can’t come fast enough!

Cat & Alex showed us around their favorite city throughout the session. They both had so much knowledge and fun facts, I was actually in history-buff heaven! I can see why it’s so easy to fall in love with this place with all the vibrant architecture, cobblestone streets, insanely delicious food, and let’s not forget the Spanish moss! We don’t have that here in Virginia, so I was soaking it up as much as possible!!!

These two have such a beautiful chemistry together. One of my favorite parts of this job is finally meeting my couples at their engagement sessions and seeing how they are together. And let me tell you, their love is effortless. Cat & Alex are naturals in front of the camera, and I couldn’t get enough of those outfits!!! Photographing these two was a piece of cake! They made it SO easy for me!

Here’s a little peek into our session together! I can most certainly guarantee you’ll fall in love with this city just as much as we did!

We ended our session along the water, and it was so dreamy! Needless to say, I feel like we saw so many of the Charleston favorites!! I’m dreaming of the day I’m back here adventuring these streets again! So if you’re looking for someone to photograph you and your partner, I’m your girl! Bags packed and car ready to roll!
