Engagement Portraits at Charleston Air Force Base

Charleston Air Force Base Photography.jpg

I photographed Maura and Rob's engagement portrait at Charleston Air Force Base a while ago. But I recently came across this portrait session, and I thought it would be a good fit for summer.

Maura, who works with my husband at Ingevity and her fiancé Rob who works at the Air Force Base and is in charge of the cargo on these giant planes were a dream to work with!  My assistant Mea (a College of Charleston student) and I met the couple at the Charleston Air Force Base on a Sunday afternoon. Rob had to go through a lot of red-tape to get us all on the base.

It was my first time seeing one of these giant aircraft close up and the size is mind-blowing. Living in Charleston, SC, we see these planes in the air all the time, and they fly very low and slow. I have no idea how they stay up in the air? 

We set out to take creative engagement portraits that were unique to the location, and I think we nailed it! We also had some pretty stunning subjects to work with!

Elopement Photography in Charleston, SC

cheap wedding photographers, Charleston, SC

I recently added an elopement package to my price list! For $900 I offer 1.5 hours of photography, an online gallery for viewing and ordering prints and the high-resolution files. That is a great deal! 

I love photographing intimate weddings because they are so comfortable and relaxed. Leah and George were married in February at Planters Inn in downtown Charleston, SC with, only their parents and Georges brother in attendance. It was a sweet elopement, and I was honored to be a part of such a happy family memory. 

Leah and George are planning a bigger wedding party with friends back home in Massachusetts in a few months.

Family Beach Portraits

I have been photographing family portraits at the Isle of Palms, Kiawah Island, and Folly Beach for the past 15 years. One of my first jobs in Charleston was at a portrait studio, Portrait Innovations in Mt. Pleasant. There I learn posing techniques for large group portraits and individuals of all ages. I also picked up tricks on helping young kids smile and engage with the camera. 

Now that I have two young girls 6 years and 7 years I have discovered even more tricks on helping kids relax and smile in front of the camera. I also have a greater appreciation for the planning process of a family portrait. From the clothes selection to timing everything perfectly so all the kids are happy. 

If you haven’t already, be sure and visit the home page of my website and sign up to receive my Family Portrait Clothing Guide. There you’ll learn tips on selection clothing for your portrait that will help your family look more cohesive in a picture and let their personality’s shine.

Be sure and schedule your family portrait as soon as possible. Summer sunset portraits fill up fast, especially on holiday weeks. You can fill out my contact page or give me a call 843 442-0802.
