I don’t know how your weather has been, but I could do for a dose of sun today! Ben & Colleen’s wedding is just two months away, and I’m particularly excited since their reception will be at the site where I wed my husband — Lowndes Grove Plantation on the Ashley River.
My Faceless Friday posts feature portraits that ooze personality without even sharing a person’s expression or the sparkle in their eyes. For my first-ever engagement session, I picked up a couple of fun balloons on a whim. Thankfully, this couple had no qualms about obliging my silliness. I love the playful nature of this shot, the weathered Charleston brick and their flip flops. Life is good!

These two were such troopers for braving the 100+ heat index for these Charleston engagement photos! They’ll marry next spring, and they were eager to have some shots for a save-the-date card. Ben is a merchant marine, so he’s heading out this week for another month off the Louisiana coast, on a ship that is currently assisting with oil spill cleanup. Colleen, who occasionally babysat for my kids during grad school, is set to start work at a new charter school specializing in children with multiple and severe disabilities. These two have such big hearts, and it was great fun wandering the steamy downtown streets with them. Congratulations, y’all!
