Amanda and Phil’s Romantic Boone Hall Wedding

……….A romantic Boone Hall wedding is always a treat to shoot – everywhere you turn is a beautiful scene, an ancient oak tree, or a bursting sunset. This is the second time I’ve shot a wedding at Boone hall that’s held the ceremony under the avenue of oak trees, and I think it’s my new favorite spot!

……….The day began with a private first look between the historic gates of the mansion at Boone Hall. Nestled quietly beneath the live oaks and Spanish moss, Amanda and Phil then tied the knot in an intimate ceremony surrounded by family and close friends. With thunder rumbling in the distance and the occasional lightning bolt illuminating the dark skies we headed off to take some portraits during golden hour. Everyone was constantly checking the radar and hoping we weren’t going to get rained out but luckily for all of us we were graced with no rain and an INSANE sunset. Coupled with a super high tide at the cotton dock, the reflections on the water were unlike anything I’ve shot before at this location.

……….The neutral color palette allowed the beauty of the location to shine through at Boone Hall – a pop of color from burgundy dahlias and blush roses was all that was needed to showcase the lush green surroundings while guests to nibbled, mingled, and enjoyed the sights, all while having a refreshing drink under the shade of the oaks.

……….Thanks to all of the vendors who helped make this Boone Hall wedding possible!

Amber and Stehle’s Last-Minute Downtown Charleston Wedding Portraits

……….This is definitely the latest anyone has ever gotten in touch with me: I received a slightly-panicked phone call around 2 PM (three hours before we had a scheduled shoot with another couple) from Amber and Stehle – there had been a scheduling mix-up with their photographer and they were left with no one to shoot their wedding portraits! Luckily, I was free at the time and live downtown so was already nearby when they rang. After filing their paperwork at the courthouse we headed out to the streets to take some downtown Charleston wedding portraits – and they couldn’t have turned out better!

……….I’m a total sucker for day-after shoots. They give you as a couple the freedom to enjoy your wedding day without feeling like you have to be torn away from your friends and family to go out and take portraits. That means we can take a few hours a day (or several depending on your schedule) after the ceremony to wander through the streets of downtown, or explore Magnolia Plantation and take some amazing photos! Amber and Stehle were relaxed and poised throughout the shoot (despite having an unbelievably stressful morning). They and their families were gracious and even cheered us on later when they saw us later on while were were out shooting with our second couple of the day! Amber’s family came all the way over from France for their special day, and I’m so glad that we were able to be there to capture these memories for them.

……….Amber and Stehle actually just welcomed their first child into the world a few days ago so a huge congratulations are definitely in order! Best of luck!
