Each Bride & Groom's love story is special and we love learning these stories from all of our couples!

Right now in Charleston, Spring time is trying really hard to make its way here early! We have had a few unseasonably warm days, flowers are starting to bloom, and of course now there is pollen everywhere. (lol who's ready for allergy season?) Lucky for Jaymin when he proposed to Arica during their visit to The Holy City, they missed the height of all the pollen that's starting to set in but got to enjoy the surprisingly pleasant February weather and the beautiful grounds of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. :-) After the big moment Arica couldn’t wait to share the exciting news and immediately called to Facetime with her family. It was all so sweet and pretty picture perfect! Add to it that this pair is probably THE cutest couple ever, and it’s easy to see why we just love their proposal photos! We asked Jamyin to tell us more about the two of them and you can read that now while enjoying a few images from their Magnolia Plantation proposal in the gallery!

It was such a treat doing a pet portrait session with 7-year-old Bedlington Terrier, Sadie Mea! She's a cute, white, fluffy, little lamb of a dog. ;-) And one of the best parts of her shoot was going down to the Melinda Armstrong-Wrenn's adorable I'On neighborhood shop, Sweet Olive, where everything has been perfectly decorated for the holidays. This provided us the perfect back drop for Sadie's Christmas themed photos! Keep reading to learn mare about sweet Sadie Mae and to check out the gallery of a few of her session photos!
We here at Valerie & Co. Photographers just adore photo sessions with our Brides, Families, Professionals, and covering special events like weddings, birthdays, and proposals. It’s heartwarming and so fulfilling to capture and give each person priceless memories and perfect portraits. But we also love when a doting pet parent wants to have portraits done of their fur babies too! These fuzzy, scaly, bald, or feathered friends are more than pets, they’re family and deserve a special picture placed up on the mantle along with the rest of the family. :-) It was such a pleasure to meet and photographer Melissa’s cute kitty cats for their pet portraits and we’re excited to share a bit about them and a few of the fun photos with you!
