Dreamy Charleston Engagement Session at Golden Hour Mitch + Taylor | Charleston, SC

Couple Sessions

Mitch and Taylor are such a special couple. These two had to reschedule their engagement session more times than I could count: travel conflicts, COVID restrictions and then ME getting sick meant that their shoot kept getting pushed back and back and back. And they were SO kind the entire time. Taylor is a photographer herself (which always makes shoots extra special!) and traveled into Charleston with Mitch on a VERY hot day for their engagement shoot! We both had crazy days leading up to the shoot but the stars aligned to give us the most PERFECT light and gorgeous locations on the evening of the session!

We explored downtown together near the Mills House before heading over to Hampton Park at golden hour (which is a personal fave of mine!) I have NEVER been to Hampton Park on a day that had light THIS amazing…it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! We had the dreamiest golden hour and I can’t get enough of these images! I also feel like Taylor and I could have talked for AGES…I seriously just love these two and their love! The joyful giggles that happened the entire session, despite the heat and hiccups throughout the day, just showed exactly how much these two love each other.

Taylor and Mitch: thank you so, so much for entrusting me with these special memories! I can’t wait until we get to hangout again and hope you love these images as much as I do!

Love this little nook of a location!

And this spot!! This shot is a fave!!!

GAHHH. This whole set of images melts my heart! That LIGHT!


Another fave!!!
