Josh and I had planned his secret surprise proposal for a few weeks leading up to the big day. He wanted to set it up in a beautiful, quiet alleyway in Charleston. So we decided on Philadelphia Alley. The sun was shining and reflecting off of the buildings which gave some gorgeous light to work with. Now since this alleyway was narrow and didn’t offer to many places to hide, I had to come up with a better way to blend in. (see last pic) 🙂 It all worked out and Barbara never saw me hiding in the bushes. ha! Congrats to the both of you!

There was no way you were going to dampen with wet weather the spirits of both Josh and Maureen for their wedding day! It was all smiles and joy once Josh saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle towards him. It was a wonderful service at Nativity Catholic Church with a  rocking party reception at Founders Hall! I was so happy that I got to be a part of their very special day. Congratulations!

Wow! What a beautiful wedding ceremony in the middle of January for Jennifer & Billy at The William Aiken House. Jennifer looked absolutely stunning in her wedding gown. She has some of the best reactions and smiles of any bride that I have photographed during a ceremony recently. It was pure joy and laughter the whole entire day. Of course Billy was all smiles too when he saw his lovely bride coming down the isle. Two weeks prior to this, Charleston had the most snow fall in like 20 years. What a difference two weeks makes here in town! 🙂 It was just a fun filled day with all of their family members gathered for this wonderful wedding event. Congratulations to the two of you!

So Jason and I had been planning his surprise proposal for several weeks leading up to the big day for him. He even got his parents involved so that his dad could livestream the event to Ashley’s parents online via a cellphone. Jason’s mom was in charge of video. What was funny was watching Jason place his parents behind the large oak trees at the Battery in downtown Charleston so that he could have them in just the right location! He even had a band hiding nearby so that when he went down on one knee, the band members would know to start walking that way and playing some music! Jason went all out to make this a very special day for Ashley. Congratulations to the both of you! 🙂

What a great time I had with Maureen and Josh a few weeks ago in downtown Charleston for their engagement session! I’m looking forward to their wedding next June which will be here in no time! It’s always fun to wander around downtown soaking up the historic sights and finding some great locations for portraits. Congratulations!

So Andrew and I had been working on a plan for his girlfriend Alexis and the surprise proposal that he wanted to do for her. Now this was really cool because he had private Chef Shay McDonald come in and fix a fabulous meal. Except the story was that it was for his parents who then had a last minute situation that they had to attend and rush out of the house! No need to waste delicious food, so Andrew said that he and Alexis should stay and eat. My part was to show up and act like I was taking pics of the food and setup for a magazine that the chef was going to be in. So while I’m going around taking pics of the food and setups, Alexis didn’t really have any idea of what was coming up. Andrew then surprised her by going down on one knee and asking her to marry him which totally caught her off guard! haha! She lit up and had one of the best reactions ever! One of the funniest things that I heard her say which was directed to me when she said “and he was taking so many pictures of all of the food….” 🙂 After the surprise, the entire family came up to surprise her for what everyone else was in on. I’m so glad that everything worked out so well! Since we were already on Folly Beach, I just had to take the two of them down to the Morris Island Lighthouse for a beautiful sunset to cap off the evening! Congratulations to the two of you!!

Another beautiful day here in the lowcountry for a surprise proposal for Jesse & Summer down by the Morris Island Lighthouse on Folly Beach! Jesse was planning a vacation getaway several weeks ago and wanted to know about a great beach location for his upcoming proposal. I told him that I knew just the place! The Lighthouse Preserve is such a unique location that we have here in town and works for a perfect backdrop for such a special occasion. Jesse wanted to start off their week here in town with the big news and he caught Summer totally by surprise. I think at first she was a little confused as to what was going on, but then a huge smile came across her face as Jesse went down on one knee with a ring in his hand. 🙂 Congratulations to the two of you!

While Kyle and I had been planning his surprise proposal setup for a few weeks in advance,  you just never know how the weather will be here in Charleston for February. It was a bit chilly on the beach but the sun was shining and it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon! Stephanie really had no idea and just thought that they were going to a nice brunch in downtown Charleston, but first wanted to have a quick walk out on the beach while they were staying on the Isle of Palms. Little did she know how her afternoon “stroll” was really going to turn out…..haha! Congrats to the both of you!

Bo and I had planned his special surprise proposal at Magnolia Gardens for a couple of weeks ahead of time. Of course a cold front moved in and it was a very chilly January morning earlier in the week. Rarely do I have to break out hand warmer packets to keep my fingers warm to operate the camera. I was just thankful that the rain had moved out from the day before when we were originally scheduled for this shoot. Now I’ve photographed a lot of proposals in the past, but this one had an extra “tense” moment to it. While Bo was on the famous white bridge down on one knee, I heard the ring fall out of his hand and start rolling down the walkway of the bridge. I was so scared that I was going to hear a “ker-plop” of something falling into the water! Luckily fate was on the side of Bo that day because he didn’t have to dive into the cold,  murky swamp water to try and save an engagement ring. Oh that would have been sooo cold on that day. (although I would have made sure to get some good images if it had…ha! ) Overall it was a beautiful day with a gorgeous couple in a historic plantation setting. How can you get better than that! 🙂 Congrats again to both of you!
