Venues Mini Series | Charleston Wedding Photographer

As this mini series comes to a close, I am so excited finish up with my favorite place on earth: Charleston, SC!! James and I feel like this is our home away from home, in fact, we visit so often we feel like locals! I have been vacationing in Charleston for 10+ years with my family and have such fond memories. Ever since I started getting into photography it has been a DREAM of mine to photograph a wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. Maybe I can finally hit that goal in 2021 or 2022??

Even though this is WAYYYYYY beyond the 60 miles included in my regular experience, we are actually waiving all travel fees for CHS! So if you are looking to get married in Charleston, SC don’t let my Virginia Wedding Photographer title scare ya!!

Enjoy browsing my favorite Charleston, SC wedding venue and if you are looking for some beautiful venues in Virginia definitely check out the previous post in the venues mini series here:

We are starting my favorite plantation!! Middleton offers such beautiful gardens to explore before dinning at one of my favorite spots for dinner. This is always one of our favorite touristy things to do in town!
