Within seconds of meeting Kat, I knew I wanted to photograph her wedding. She used some major key words like "small," "barefoot," and "pig roast." She had me. Charleston is a huge wedding city and as a photographer you really can't avoid the wedding industry down here. I tend to gravitate toward and attract clients that have smaller, more intimate weddings and want an editorial-style photographer rather than traditional portraiture. I knew Kat, her fiancé Henry and I would make a great team for the big day.
The wedding was set in Edisto, South Carolina at the Brick House Ruins on a small point with 11 houses. The house itself used to be the main house on a 300 acre plantation and was built in 1725. It caught fire in 1929 and was declared a historic landmark in the 70s. It provided an amazing backdrop to the wedding ceremony and reception. I desperately wanted to climb all over it but falling bricks made that a big NO. Haha!
So this wedding was pretty much a dream for me with a barefoot bride and bridesmaids, a relaxed bride and groom, gorgeous moss covered oak trees, and a 300-year-old historic landmark as my background. There was a lot of dancing and laughing and celebrating. The whole group of family and friends gave me wonderful moments and genuine emotion to capture. I hope you enjoy the images!
