Charleston Anniversary Session | 5 Years. High school sweethearts. Truly growing up and in love together. You might remember Laura’s story, nearly two years ago moved to Charleston, and within a few weeks, met her now fiancé, Andy. Both of them having two children of their own, and as close as Laura and Rachel area, is Andy to Tyler. As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
This is Tyler and his girlfriend Taylor. We have had the incredible opportunity to welcome them into our family and couldn’t WAIT to get them in front of our cameras. Talk about photogenic! These two are truly meant for one another and complete naturals.
We began the afternoon walking the downtown Charleston streets near Rainbow Row, veering off in hidden alley ways, and secluded nooks and crannies known mostly to the locals (we can actually start calling ourselves that now!).
A short drive and outfit change later, we were very eager to finally have made it to Folly Beach for what might have been one of the most beautiful beach days we’ve had since living here. Imagine mid 70’s, low humidity, with the hint of coolness in the ocean breeze which just made for the amazing Beyoncé hair for Taylor. What a DREAM! From nestled up in the sand dunes to snuggling on the rocks, this Charleston anniversary session was one we will never forget!
“Tyler, you have no idea the role you play in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for always being there when I need you, and you have no idea how proud we are as parents. I may have not been there while you were growing up, but I’m honored to be here now. You are cherished and so very special to me. I may have not carried you for 9 months, but I will spend the rest of my life loving and protecting you as if you were my own. I love you. – Love, Laura”

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!
