THE DETAILS

Spring is always a favorite season when everything starts to bloom, window boxes come to life, and the sweet fragrance of the magnolia trees fill the air. Autumn in the low country is iconic, with the falling leaves, changing colors, and warm breeze. Winter light is magical! The crispness in the air calls for layers, snuggling, and oyster roasts. There is no other place in the world like the Low Country of Charleston!

Laura and Rachel were fantastic from start to finish! I live in Seattle so they handled all the logistics and prep. They gave me tons of location choices and when venues fell through they were able to pivot and find a fantastic alternative.

"Fantastic from start to finish!”

I reached out to Laura and Rachel about photographing our engagement. From start to finish, their professionalism and commitment was astonishing. For months on end, I received updates both in email and picture form, all while ensuring it's exactly what I had in mind. To say that the experience was perfect doesn't do it justice. If anyone is looking for a photography team, stop here , you will not regret it.

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful L&R are. They were a dream come true. They made us feel extremely comfortable and like we were having a photo shoot with old friends. The pictures were so beautiful I cannot stop staring at them. I highly, highly recommend this duo! We are very excited for them to shoot our wedding next!

Laura and Rachel are an amazing duo! I am not from the Charleston area and had little familiarity with the town. I knew that I wanted to propose in Charleston, and that was about it. L&R made amazing recommendations for proposal locations and helped create a perfect plan for the big moment. They provided very specific details which helped alleviate any stress I was feeling. Overall, an amazing experience and I would 100% recommend working with this mother daughter duo!

Laura and Rachel truly are the dynamic mother daughter photography team! They did such an amazing job helping me coordinate the perfect proposal for my girl. They were able to capture a moment that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I am so glad that I was able to pull off this amazing proposal, but truly couldn't have done it without the help of Laura and Rachel!

Laura and Rachel made planning my proposal simple and enjoyable. They gave me recommendations on what to wear, how to ask, and potential spots to pop the question. They walked me through the process and timeline for the day. When the time came, I was ready and relaxed because of how much effort I could tell they put in. The photos they returned were beautiful and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get engaged. You and your new fiancée will love L&R!

You and your new fiancée will love Laura & Rachel!"

FAQ

Rescheduling is the easiest option, but it stinks. If your sessions must have blue skies, then we’ll need to pick a new date and we typically make the call to reschedule the morning of or within a few hours of the session. We understand you may be on vacation and there isn't time to reschedule, we're here to help! We'll come up with a rain back up plan. Sometimes though, if its just overcast skies, its fun to grab a clear umbrella and have fun with it!

What do we do if it rains?

questions —

The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall with weddings, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date! To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a retainer. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

How far in advance should we book?

questions —

Dress things up! Think about a nice suit or khaki pants with a button up shirt for guys, and a long flowy dress for the ladies. Plan a nice dinner date evening, so they won't think twice about dressing up. Take them shopping, plan a hair and makeup pampering day, and have her get her nails done. We're here to help you walk through the entire process!

What should we wear?

questions —

Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera. You may feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we direct you though poses, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be a lot of fun!

We're awkward and don't know how to pose.

questions —

Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. 

How will I receive my photos?
