First off let me say..Monticello is NOT Montpelier-lol!! I always tend to get my historical sites here in Virginia confused from time-to-time…hey I am an art and theatre major, not a history major. Kelsey & Drum met me at Monticello for their engagement session as soon as they opened, of course it was Thomas Jefferson’s birthday so it was a bit crowded…but we dodged the crowds and managed to create some really pretty portraits! These are a few of my favorites from their day at Monticello in Charlottesville Virginia:
When Sarah asked me to photograph her July 2016 wedding at the lovely Morais Vineyard I was SO honored, then when she asked if I could take their engagement portraits in Charleston, SC....well let's just say I was over-the-moon excited!! I had always wanted to visit the gorgeous southern charm city and now I was not only going to visit, but to photograph a lovely couple there as well!! What.a.dream!!
Sarah and Paul rocked it out despite the insane heat (it was so so hot y'all....) and they looked ah-mazing in every photograph! They even bought their adorable doggie with them!! Like seriously, stop with the cuteness! We wandered the streets of Charleston and stopped when I saw something amazing...which was like every second!
Charleston is probably one of my favorite places now and I truly hope to have more gorgeous portrait sessions there again soon! Sarah and Paul, thank you both for being amazing! I seriously adore ALL the portraits from this shoot <3 Can't wait to capture your wedding next summer!!
