Notice a theme in our t-shirts, low hanging magical moss, and huge smiles across our faces? Besides keeping the secret we announced last week that Rachels pregnant, we’ve also been holding in something else. As of the end of the year, we will be calling Charleston home! We’re MOVING!!! That’s right, we’re trading the west coast for the east, nautical sunsets for sunrises, and vineyard weddings for plantations. The newest member of the family will grow up southern knowing ya’ll for you all, grits over oatmeal, text messages just don’t carry the same gratitude as a handwritten note, and there’s always fresh brewed sweet tea nearby.
We visited our future home state of South Carolina just a few weeks ago, meeting some of their amazing wedding vendors along the way, and with only three days on the ground, captured an anniversary, engagement, proposal, bridal session, and a styled wedding. Let’s just say we have an enormous amount of GORGEOUS southern-goodness to share in the next few weeks!
Many of you will be asking are we still accepting weddings here on the west coast, ABSOLUTELY! Especially during those summer months when us Californians have no idea how to work in the South Carolina humidity . We’ll also be flying back next year for all our 2019 weddings, during that time still capturing engagement, anniversary, and proposal sessions along the way.
A house you can find anywhere, a home is something you create. We couldn’t imagine a more exciting time in life! A new beginning, all together.
Here are a few sneak peeks of our film scans from our South Carolina trip last month. See what we’re talking about… MAGICAL! We couldn’t be more excited that to be known as a Charleston wedding photographer!
…and so the adventure begins!
Now accepting 2019 and beyond weddings from coast to coast. Charleston, we’re coming for you!
Thank you to the amazing Charleston wedding vendors who helped all these sessions come to life…

MEET LAURA & RACHEL
Together, we have worked in the wedding industry for over a decade, and make up one incredibly unique mother-daughter fine art wedding photography team. We have documented weddings from the breathtaking West Coast, to the historic East, and have had our work published internationally both in print and online. Our wanderlust hearts have taken us all over the country, capturing love stories, and visiting quaint hometown coffee shops along the way, and even though we've spent most of our lives in a nautical California town, we now call South Carolina home, expanding to the low country of Charleston. We are photographers, directors, curators, and most of all, storytellers for your wedding.
And WE can't wait to get to know you!
I knew it!! So thrilled for you all!
I thought it might be a move, but WOW i wasn’t expecting that!!!! CONGRATS!!!!! You will love it there. So excited for you all! Praying for a smooth transition, and long nights on your front porch drinking tea and playing with babies ❤️
So excited (and a little jealous)!! I love South Carolina!
