Everybody loves a really good surprise! When the secret is out and you are the one being surprised, there’s nothing like the rush of emotions then the feelings of excitement after realizing what’s happened. On the other side of that is the thrill of being in on the secret and being a part of the surprise. Your adrenaline gets pumping and you’re on a high knowing you’ve pulled it off and helped make someone so happy. The genuine shock and pure joy on that person’s face is priceless!
Probably the biggest best surprise anyone could accomplish, is asking your love to marry you! Our studio, Valerie & Co. Photographers, recently shot Chad and Jennifer’s proposal and Jennifer just did not see it coming!
Springtime in Charleston is a picture perfect time of year. The weather starts to warm up and the outdoors are absolutely wonderful. The beautiful azaleas, a Charleston flower favorite, are in full bloom along with a lush array of botanical beauty. The fantastic sight of the budding, new, and refreshed, spring landscape, makes for a photographer’s dream. :-) So to all the guys out there trying to plan a marriage proposal to your true love, take advantage of the loveliness of the season, and include proposal photography that catches all the joy of the big moment set in the nicest scenery!
Reeder and Meg’s proposal at Middleton Place is one of our FAVORITE springtime surprise engagements. This spot, a National Historic Landmark, is home to America’s Oldest Landscaped Gardens and is open for admission to visitors.
It’s so fun to see the different approaches to a marriage proposal. Modest and heartfelt, silly and sweet, private and romantic, over-the-top and grand; these are a few ways you could execute your proposal. No matter what though, it is always special for each couple! There’s no comparison to this thrilling once-in-a-lifetime moment! That is why when you’ve decided to pop THE big question, proposal photography should be included in your plans. The two of you will LOVE having those priceless images of such a special day and be admired for generations to come.
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.
As a Charleston Wedding Photographer, there are few things more exhilarating than getting asked to photograph a proposal. I’m hidden…here they come…my heart is beating like I’m playing an extreme sport…and then it happens, the moment he pops the question and both of their lives change forever. I admit I might be tearing up behind the camera a little bit!
We couldn’t be happier for these two sweet people. God definitely knew what He was doing bringing this couple together!
When it comes to Charleston Engagement Photography, this session is definitely one of our recent favorites! Set in historic downtown Charleston, this shoot captured Chantal and Rich perfectly. Chantal, a hairstylist, and Rich, a civilian contractor in Afghanistan, have been long distance their entire relationship. We are THRILLED that they are finally together to do their Engagement Shoot, especially in the greatest city on earth! They drove all the way from Charlotte to be photographed on the stunning cobblestone Wharf streets and underneath the gorgeous Spanish Moss in Hampton Park.
