Kelly and Ben’s downtown Charleston engagement session proved two things; these two are adorable and it’s a very small world. Kelly and Ben hired me for their August, 2019 wedding in Menomonee Falls, WI. However, these two currently reside in Rock Hill, SC and planned to be in Charleston the same week I went home for a visit. Meeting these two on what felt like my turf, made my worlds collide!
We began our session at Rainbow Row in downtown Charleston for a few colorful portraits. From there, we walked to The Battery, about a five minute walk, to capture some memories by the water. The Battery can be so much fun to shoot at, however it’s a busy area so I always make sure I use body blocking with my couples to block out pedestrians and utilize close up portraits as well. After seeing the water a bit, Kelly, Ben and I took an Uber to Palmetto Brewing Co for fun bar scenes. This was one of my favorite parts of the entire day because we encountered puppies, ax throwing (yes…) and let lose in the warehouse themed bar to make candid, sweet memories.
Kelly is currently attending Winthrop Univeristy for her masters and Ben is an United States Marine. They also model on the side, or at least they should start! I had so much fun with these two and cannot wait for August 3rd, 2019!
Special Thanks for Palmetto Brewing Co.
