Broad Street Beauty { Charleston SC Travel Photography }

A few weeks ago, as I usually do, I went out for an exploration and shoot session of this amazing city of ours, Charleston. I try and get downtown from across the bridge in Mt Pleasant as much as I can to capture this historic place full of iron gates, vibrant colors, and cobblestone streets. I am always amazed at the fact that every time I head downtown, even if I go to the exact same spot, I can always shoot something different that I missed before! This go 'round I found a spot to park on a side street off of Broad Street. I hadn't shot this way before so I decided it was a good place that day! I was lucky enough to get there as the sun was setting for some amazing shots (totally not planned, but I thankful for it!). As I look back at my car on the way up the street, I get my first shot...


Approaching Broad, I could see the amazing
This is one of my favorite structures in Charleston and you can obviously see why! I will more than likely head back down that way and get more shots of this church at different angles. 
So amazing. 


                       

 Then there is the John Rutledge House Inn. I have never been in this place but I can't lie when I say I am dying to! Definitely on my "to do" list. The bright exterior colors are so beautiful in itself, and the sunset that fell on this Inn made it even more stunning. Um yea, definitely going to be heading inside soon!



The The Governor's House Inn was also on my way up the street. This was actually an awesome find for me because I honestly did not know it existed. This will most likely be on my list of re-visits (not sure if that is a real word but you get the idea). Check out their website, The inside looks pret-ty freaking amazen'. 


There is so much beauty found on Broad and this post doesn't not even begin to touch it! Yes, this will be another shoot spot for me in the future. I don't think I could get enough of this stunning street!

2 Best Friends + 2 High Schools = GRADUATION

This time 14 YEARS ago, yours truly was preparing for life after graduation. It seems so unreal. I can remember getting our outfits together for graduation pictures and deciding what time we were going to meet because of course we had to go together! We would meet that day at our high school, stand posed for outdoor "casual" photos first, then head to the library for our "formal" shots. I am pretty sure that is the same routine now a days. BUT not for these lovely ladies! Last weekend, I met these two beautiful young ladies, best friends graduating from 2 different high schools. We met at Mepkin Abbey in Monks Corner SC. What an amazing setting as you can see! I had no problem getting laughs from these two and their true personalities came pouring out in each image! They just flowed together so well, I could see why they were best friends! I had so much fun with these young ladies and a HUGE Congrats to them on their graduation!






Aren't they beauties?! What year…

2016 - Behind The Scenes!

Happy New Years! I am so thankful & blessed for a pretty amazing 2016. I have had the most fantastic clients a photographer could ask for, met some truly awesome people, and had the most amazing business opportunities I would have NEVER imagined would cross my path. So, I'm not making any NY resolutions this year, only goals for an even better 2017!

Some might think my shoots are all fun & games... and they're right! I always have the nicest, most laid back clients (to date) and that makes for a killer shoot. We laugh, we joke, sometimes we dance, sometimes we act silly, and sometimes we even cry (well, the little ones anyway).. But one things for sure- we always create magic. Here are just a few behind the scene looks from 2016. Here's to an amazing 2017!


Gettin' silly with it!
Sometimes it takes a little time to warm up to the situation..
Sometimes we get distracted..
When Daddy does silly things to make you laugh and then... you're DONE!

However many it takes …

Tavolo: A Taste of Italian in Charlotte!

Tavolo: A family style Italian restaurant in the uptown area of Charlotte, NC. Located at 300 North College Street, Tavolo offers fine Italian dining, wood fired pizzas, wine & cocktails, and more! Enjoy a seat at the full service bar, upstairs, or a traditional table in the downstairs dining area!

I recently had the pleasure of tasting this amazing restaurant for myself while working  in Charlotte with Kelly of Paper Meets Pearl
We started our trip to Tavolo with a few choice martini cocktails:  • the Fragola: vodka, simple syrup, sour mix, fresh strawberries & basil • the Bacio Del Limone: Prosecco, house made Limoncello, fresh raspberries 




As we enjoyed these delicious house martinis, we decided to add a few appetizers into the mix. 
• Carpaccio De Manzo: thinly sliced beef tenderloin topped with sea salt,  cracked black pepper, olive oil, arugula & asiago! 

• Calamari Alla Diavolo: fried squid with roasted & cherry peppers,  served with marinara. 

After devouring…
