This year has been amazing so far in terms of travel. France, Portugal, Vienna & Prague and the US and it’s only July. I have so much travel photography to share on the blog over the next few months and I’m looking forward to re-living each trip along with introducing you to the amazing couples I’ve had the chance to work with.
This gorgeous shoot took place towards the end of our epic road trip around the South East US in May/June. We ended off our trip in South Carolina and in one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to – Charleston. Everything about this city took my breath away – the gorgeous antebellum houses, the scenic waterfront, Spanish moss hanging from trees on tiny streets that look like they’re straight from a film set.
I wanted to make the most of our time in Charleston and thankfully the very lovely Kylee & Ben were up for hanging out with me for a couple session one late afternoon just before sunset. Kyle & Ben live in Charleston (and yes I am uber jealous!) and they have their second child on the way, so this was a nice opportunity to celebrate this special time in their lives in the city they call home. Ben is also an amazing guitarist in Charleston based wedding band Two 3 Ways so I persuaded him to bring his guitar along for a few shots. The abundance of really good live music & talented artists in bars throughout New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville and Charleston was a definite highlight of our road trip, so I’m very happy that we worked in an element of music into the shoot!
Kyle & Ben thanks for hanging out with Wayne and I and putting up with fire ant bites during the shoot! Enjoy your photos and definitely see you again in Charleston sometime.
