Downtown Charleston Engagement Photographers

Downtown Charleston Engagement Photographers

You guys, I LOVE Charleston! It’s such a gorgeous, charming little city. So when Michelle and Rich contacted us to photograph their downtown Charleston engagement – we were thrilled! I mean, you really can’t go wrong in Charleston. Every street is filled with so much beautiful history and texture. I think the hardest part of photographing engagements there is narrowing down which neighborhoods to photograph in.
We ended up starting off Michelle and Rich’s engagement near Rainbow Row, a series of 13 colorful, historic homes. And then heading down a few of the side streets along Bay St. before finishing up the session with the couple’s adorable dogs along the ruins of Ashley Hall Plantation.
These two are from Chicago, so this was our first time meeting them (and just a few days before their wedding!) It was great to finally get to talk about all of their destination wedding plans and learn more about the amazing beach house they’d rented for their vows.  Michelle and Rich were adorable together and had so much chemistry, it made our jobs super easy!

We can’t wait to share their Folly Beach wedding, but here’s a peek at their historic Charleston engagement session in the meantime!

(Michelle and Rich loved these horse drawn carriages. So anytime we saw one of them head our way, we’d position the couple and wait for it to pass. These two are in SO many tourists photos! 😂)

The Cottages on Charleston Harbor Wedding

Sarah + Matt were wed at The Cottages on Charleston Harbor in Mount Pleasant, SC.


Sarah and Matt are from Ohio, but Sarah dreamed of an destination wedding where they’d be surrounded by their closest friends and family. (And preferably on a beach!) When they stumbled upon The Cottages at Charleston Harbor, with it’s white sand and private harbor views – they knew they’d found their perfect venue! The Cottages at Charleston Harbor are nestled along the edge of Mt. Pleasant, directly across from downtown Charleston. It was the perfect intimate location for their wedding day!
After their vows, we whisked Sarah and Matt to Charleston’s Historic District and Rainbow Row for a few portraits. I absolutely love shooting in downtown Charleston! There are so many beautiful buildings and alleys, you can never go wrong – and they all lend a little extra romantic southern charm to wedding photos.
Once we were finished exploring downtown, we headed back to The Cottages at Charleston Harbor for the Sarah and Matt’s wedding reception! Sarah’s family had transformed the cottage’s backyard into the perfect beach-y chic reception space. Succulent filled mercury glass votives and white hydrangea bouquets adorned all of the tables, and their first dance took place underneath twinkling cafe lights strung between palm trees. It was a gorgeous wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier to celebrate these two!
