Downtown Charleston Engagement Session | Folly Beach Engagement Session | Samantha & Drew

Engagement, Portraits

Oh friends, this Charleston engagement session has our hearts swooning for more! Historic buildings, ancient mossy oak trees, white sandy shores, and a PUPPY! Now this is our love language!

With our feet planted here in Charleston for six months now, we’ve had the time to explore and get more acquainted with the area. There are hidden gems around every corner that just leaves are jaws on the ground, that we now call this slice of heaven on earth home. Downtown Charleston engagement sessions are now on the top of our list of all time favorites, right up there with Paris. We’re serious, it’s that much of a dream!

Samantha and Drew drove in from Charlotte to have their love captured along the streets of Charleston. Together with their Golden Retriever, Emma, and seven week old puppy, Moose, they were definitely popular among the people on the streets!

Folly Beach is our new favorite beach town, with its long white sandy shore, nautical boardwalks, and rock formations. Samantha and Drew, we had so much fun with you two and hope you have the most amazing wedding in the Bahamas!

    Hello, in May a small group of us…maybe 6…will be traveling to Charleston to celebrate our dearest friend getting married. She loves historical cities and has chosen Charleston for our weekend celebration. We’re interested in finding a photographer that could possibly spend an hour or two with us taking pictures on Saturday May 15th. We’d love to walk around places like rainbow row and maybe some other locations and just get a few beautifully captured moments. Could you please let me know roughly how much that might be to have a photographer such as yourself do this for us? We’d really like to see if we can fit this idea into our budget for the trip. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, Amber

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!

We're Laura & Rachel
