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…

Lipstik Girls!

Bethany had an amazing opportunity to model for Lipstik Girls Clothing 2014 Elisa B. line! From the time she began working with Gooma Models she has wanted to work with this company. Their clothing line for young girls is simply stunning. I was super excited for her to have this opportunity! We chose a downtown / urban style setting for this shoot. I must tell you IT WAS HOT! We were roasting. We kept pushing on and after a few hours, we had finished this amazing shoot. UPDATE: The first image was listed on for Lipstik Girls / Elisa B. clothing. Shreek! You girls truly deserved it!

Exploring Saint Augustine, Florida

This year for my birthday, we decided to take a girls trip down to St Augustine, Florida! I’m a sucker for a historic city and St Augustine definitely fits that description! Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers, it is the oldest occupied European-established settlement within the continental US. 
There is so much to explore & experience in St Augustine, that we definitely didn’t get to see everything! We will definitely be returning in the future, but until then, here are some of our favorites in St Augustine!
Where we stayed: Ocean Sands Beach Inn

This hotel was just perfect for our stay! With everything from the convenient pool, easy parking, continental breakfast to the friendly and helpful staff! Not to mention the hotels private beach just across the street! Stay tuned for a full detailed post of our stay coming soon!
Which brings us to.. Vilano Beach!

This beach was so beautiful and relaxing! The sand in some areas was actually sea shells! Definitely a must stop if you’re into …
