Charleston Anniversary Portraits on Isle of Palms Jamie + Adam | Charleston, SC

Couple Sessions

This blog post is a testament to the fact that even people with strong systems in place in their business miss things!!! This entire week I SWORE I had already blogged Jamie and Adam’s anniversary session…but I didn’t!! I still don’t know how that happened! But, these cuties were traveling through Charleston at the end of June. They reached out to me to capture some anniversary/couples portraits for them on their trip. I happened to have an open date during their stay, and we made some MAGIC happen! Jamie is also a photographer herself (I’ve been photographing so many photographers lately! Such an honor!), so she chose the BEST outfit and location combos!!

For some reason, in addition to having amazing weather this day…we also had amazing LIGHT!! The light in Charleston can sometimes be finicky (maybe I’m the only one who thinks that!?), but this night we had the most BEAUTIFUL clear, glowy lighting – and it was just dreamy! You’ll see as you scroll through!!

Jamie and Adam: thank you for trusting me to capture these memories for you! It was truly SUCH an honor, and I absolutely loved spending the evening with you both! Enjoy scrolling through some of my personal favorites!!

Those EYES!!! I talked about Jamie’s eyes the entire shoot!! Haha! So pretty!

The LIGHT!!! I can’t get enough!

These hydrangeas were a little hidden gem on the side of a parking lot…and they were amazing!
