Spring Engagement Session at Hampton Park Briana + Kyle | Charleston, SC

Couple Sessions

Goodness gracious I just love this time of year in the South! When I used to live in Virginia, our spring shooting season didn’t kick in until late April at the earliest…but now I get to photograph gorgeous blooms in FEBRUARY!!! I’ll never get over it!! Briana and Kyle traveled into Charleston for their engagement session last week and we had the most BEAUTIFUL 75 & sunny weather! We explored Rainbow Row + Hampton Park while Briana told me all about her gorgeous ring that Kyle designed, their wedding planning details + how we are kindred spirits in so many ways – haha! We had the BEST time and captured some INCREDIBLE images!

Briana + Kyle: Thank you so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer! I am counting down the days until October and hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorite images from your beautiful engagement session!

LOVED this red jumpsuit! Such a fun choice – bold colors make my heart so happy!!

The joy and giggles from this shoot…so sweet!!!

A serious favorite!!!

I was SO excited to find these white flowers for ring shots!!

Love both of these!

Could not have loved these casual outfits more! The perfect example of coordinating without “matching” too much…and I LOVE the jean jacket thrown over Briana’s shoulders!

The moss, the glow, the pink flowers…my heart was so happy!
