Recently I had one of the greatest honors in my photography career. Getting to photograph one of my siblings engagement sessions. My youngest brother Karsten and his fiance Cortnee chose to have their engagement session in Charleston, SC. While it was a few hours away from Johnson City, I was happy to make the drive. This was my first time photographing a family member in this context, but it went off without a hitch.
After finishing at Dunes West, we moved into the city of Charleston. By this time the rain had stopped but the sun was still behind the clouds. Contrary to popular belief, many times a cloudy day can actually work out for the best in a photo session. It keeps things cool, and more importantly, it blocks out the midday sun and helps control harsh shadows. Don’t they look so cute up against the pillar?
After a much needed break for lunch, we hit some of the more well known parts of the city. The stops included an extremely overpriced candy shop, the famous Pineapple Fountain, the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, and the iconic Rainbow Row.
Finally, we made it to nearby Folly Beach just in time for some of the most epic sunset shots I’ve ever experienced. These truly came out amazing!
Congratulations to my youngest brother Karsten and his fiance Cortnee! Here’s to ending a chapter in your lives and starting a brand new, much more exciting one! I was so honored to be a part of this special moment, and I can’t wait to walk alongside you guys in the journey that is still to come.
