Downtown Charleston Engagement Session | We met Rawan and Omar right after Christmas for coffee downtown Charleston and hit it off immediately! These two complement each other so well, and Omar kept us laughing, making time just fly by. We knew instantly we were all going to be the best of friends and this was going to be one amazing wedding day!
We’ve spent the last year here in Charleston working at getting the attention of local brides and grooms so we’re not flying back to California so much in the near future. Don’t get us wrong, we love our California weddings, but flying across the country multiple times a month is a lot. Rawan and Omar were one of the first Charleston weddings we booked with their venue at Upstairs at Midtown for June 2020. We were ecstatic!
Both Rawan and Omar are college students currently studying in different states, neither living in Charleston, not leaving much time for wedding planning. The next weekend they had planned to visit Charleston, we knew had to be their engagement session. With the weeks leading up to their session, the COVID-19 virus because a pandemic. Companies we’re closing their doors, we were begin asked to start social distancing, and beaches began to close. Of course, we were suppose to end their engagement session at a local beach for sunset, but all worked out for the best. We spent a ton more time with them downtown, walking streets we had never walked before, playing tourist in what was becoming a ghost town.
Rawan and Omar, we had SO MUCH fun with you both and cannot wait to be by your side and capture your Charleston wedding in a few months! Here’s a virtual hug (since we couldn’t touch anyway)! Love you both and we’ll get over this COVID-19 thing together!

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!
