You just don't know where you'll meet your true love. You could be young and meet your high school sweetheart in class, or you may meet your love in the prime of your life while out one evening with friends. You could connect with someone online or through work. Or you could meet on the other side of the world like the newly engaged, Tyler and Liz! Liz is from Sayville, NY and Tyler is from Cleveland, OH, but the two of them met and fell in love while at Australia's Bond University during their time studying abroad.

Here at Valerie & Co. Photographers, we don't just photograph weddings, or proposals. We don't just shoot events, or headshots. And we don't just do family, or newborn portraits. Our studio does all of that AND then some, and we love it! Because we are passionate about a wide range of types of photography, we often get to see the different life stages of the wonderful people we photograph. They become like family to us and as the years go by and we do more and more sessions with them, we get to enjoy seeing how each person grows and changes. We photographed beautiful Cayce for her high school senior portraits and we've adored her ever since. A few years have passed and now we've had the pleasure of photographing her and Jamie's Boone Hall Plantation engagement session, and Cayce's downtown Charleston Bridal Portraits! It was so special to photograph Cayce, engagement to wedding gown. :-) We're excited to be able to share a few images from our sessions with Cayce here on the blog! Read more about Cayce, her hubby, Jamie, and their love story below and enjoy going through the fantastic photos from our sessions!
