Sunrise Engagement Session on Tradd Street in Charleston Amelia + Trevor | Charleston, SC

Couple Sessions

I had two GORGEOUS shoots last week…which makes for a full week on the blog!!! We have spent MONTHS trying to plan Amelia and Trevor’s engagement session. Travel bans, COVID restrictions and complications kept pushing it farther and farther back. Amelia was flying in from CALIFORNIA for the shoot…and her travel ban was finally lifted a few weeks ago!!! BLESSINGS! These two get married next year and it’s going to be a DREAM if it is ANYTHING like this engagement shoot!!! They were such naturals!!

We woke up before the sun to capture these images at sunrise. I don’t even know who I am that I’m about to say this…but I’m starting to LOVE sunrise sessions!! Something about the cooler temps, peaceful downtown streets and gorgeous glowly light has been slowly but surely winning me over. I knew from the second Amelia and Trevor pulled up to Rainbow Row that we were going to hit it off…I own TWO of the three outfits she wore for her shoot! HAHA!! Twins!!! We walked all around Rainbow Row, Tradd Street and Hampton Park so they got TONS of variety in their gallery and I absolutely love it. We could’ve hung out all day and never gotten bored!! I seriously can’t WAIT for their wedding next year!

Enjoy some of my favorites, Amelia and Trevor! Thank you so much for trusting me to capture these memories and for traveling all this way to make it happen!

The way he looks at her – I’M MELTING!!!

One of my fave locations!! For obvious reasons!!!

The light at this spot + my 85mm lens was just DREAMMMYYY.

For sure a fave!!!

Another fave! I love this whole set!!!

This little nook on the stairs was so cute!!

Another favorite!! Seriously – these two were such naturals in front of the camera!
