Fall in love | Rachel & Blake at Hampton Park | Fall Engagement Session

Charleston, South Carolina in the fall is unique. The summer heat fades into absolutely perfect weather and mother nature shows a variety of special colors. One of our favorite times of year to be a Charleston Wedding Photographer! At Hampton Park, the Spanish moss gently dangles in the trees.

Fall foliage only slightly begins to turn red, orange, and yellow, but the greens are SOOOO vibrant.

A few leaves have turned earthy hues and fallen to the ground where you can here the familiar fall crunch beneath your foot

And in Charleston, we get some of the most picturesque flowers blooming.

Combine that scenery from Hampton Park with the beautiful couple, Rachel and Blake, and we were sure to get some fantastic shots for their engagement session! The charming Blake is an Electrical Engineer Technician, and sweet Rachel is in the Nursing Program at University of South Carolina Beaufort. Their lives will be changing in a romantic whirlwind with Rachel graduating May of 2016 and the couples wedding shortly there after on May 29th.

Each engagement is special for each couple, and Rachel and Blake have a special story of Blake’s proposal. These two had been together 5 years before their engagement. Blake, not particularly a morning person, wanted to do something special for Rachel and knew she’d always wanted to watch the sunrise. He took her to Sullivan’s Island early on Valentine’s Day, down to the beach, where he made her wish to watch the sunrise come true. It’s there, that Valentine’s Day, that Blake popped the big question, and Rachel said YES!

We at Valerie and Co. Photographers are so thrilled and honored to be a part of Rachel and Blake’s story and to capture all the happiness and love! Congratulations to the awesome couple, and everyone be on the look out for what is sure to be beautiful wedding portraits here on our blog, of their May wedding! And here is a little place you can check out to get your Charleston wedding fix.
