Proposal by Sail

Watching the weather. Crossing our fingers and hoping for sunshine.
We are in place. Discreetly holding the spot that will be optimum viewing.
The couple arrives by water taxi, groom strolls to THE spot and they are looking out at the water.
A sail boat glides by and the sail drops with large letters, Liz Marry Me?
He drops to one knee, proposes and she says YES!
And we get to be a part of the happy:)

Moment at Middleton

There are countless reasons why we love to retreat a night or two at Middleton Inn. Seeing all the horses as we drive in, wine and cheese hour, hammocks, being riverside and walking by tiki torches to Middleton Place for a meal are just a few. Our top reason is having the trails to ourselves early morning and late evening. It is pure peacefulness with an alligator sighting or two.

Middleton Reflections

Charleston Portraits

So honored to know and photograph stunning women in the Lowcountry!

Stick Art

Tickle your creativity and remember the last time you built a fort or spent time in a treehouse. The Gibbes brought in Patrick Dougherty to create an installation over the course of 3 weeks. His medium of stick sculptures are like playhouses for adults. I enjoyed so many elements of his process and completed creation. Check it out!

Quiet Moments

There is something so beautiful about the combination of unplanned moments, simple light and natural expressions. Some of my favorites of our most precious nephew moving through his day. Admittedly, we are biased and he is adorable.

Raindrops and Vows

Weather happens. It is up to us to find the silver lining in each gust, drop or freeze and craft each into artful images. Cold weather brings out coats, snuggling and fun accessories like hats and scarves. Wind makes hair, veils and dresses dance. For raindrops, we bring out the big umbrellas and encourage lots of closeness. We count ourselves lucky that 9 out of 10 times our clients embrace the weather that shows up on their day. With well-adjusted expectations, we get to walk away with unexpectedly unique images.  

These two are a shining example of making the most of raindrops!

Make Your Walls Happy

Project update our wall art finally happened. During the 5 days that the images were down for reframing, we made a discovery about ourselves. Bare walls make us sad. Make your walls happy and put art on them!

Engagements Only

We are often asked if we photograph engagements only (not the wedding to follow). The answer is yes! Some of our clients are on vacation and are drawn to images with beach or Charleston backdrops. Some clients live here and are getting married elsewhere. For whatever the reason, if we have the availability, we are honored. It is great practice to step in front of professional cameras and get comfortable with the process regardless if we are your wedding day photographers.
