We met at Waterfront Park, for this dreamy Charleston engagement session. Despite Waterfront Park being wildly popular for tourists, it was surprisingly empty, which was perfect for our session planned. We met by the pineapple fountain, and Britney and Nick immediately sparked laughter as we started shooting. These two were so fun and goofy with each other and it was so sweet to capture. Along one side of the park is a quiet cobblestone street with a beautiful row of newly bloomed azaleas. So we took time to shoot by the flowers and along the sidewalk, and soaked up the gorgeous history of this old street. Waterfront Park makes for a perfect blend of nature and blooming flowers with the historic cobblestone streets and pastel houses.
If you’re planning on visiting Charleston in an off season, I would highly recommend March. The weather was still warm and sunny, and flower season is in full bloom. It’s an incredibly beautiful sight to see hundreds of flower bushes at every corner amongst the cobblestone streets and wrought iron fences. While shooting around Waterfront Park we were even able to see ships come and go in the harbor, and visit the famous Rainbow Row.
As the sun set behind the rows of pastel houses and the gas lamps lit up the streets, we started heading back towards pineapple fountain. Shooting with Britney and Nick was so fun to capture their energy and love for each other. As a traveling elopement photographer, shooting this Charleston engagement session along the rows of trees and flowers was a dream come true. Especially since Charleston is one of my favorite cities. If you visit Charleston, absolutely take a stroll with your boo down to WaterFront Park. The views are breathtaking and the atmosphere is incredible. And if you also want a Charleston engagement session, let’s set something up and create some gorgeous photos.
