Valerie and Co Photographers love being a Charleston wedding photographer because of the the abundance of southern charm to be found. Andrea and Jarrett are a charming couple that our studio loves so much, we couldn’t help but reminisce now with their 1st anniversary fast approaching! Andrea and Jarrett believe in the old adage “third time’s the charm” and they’re “southern charm” love story is the reason why! The two met at five years old when Andrea developed a crush on Jarrett in their kindergarten days, however little Jarrett just did not feel the same way.

I absolutely adore being a Charleston wedding photographer because we are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful and popular cities for weddings in this country. I also love to travel and jump on the opportunity to do so as often as I can. Destination weddings are a favorite of mine because I get to combine two of my passions, travel and photography! I have photographed many destination weddings within the US and internationally as well. I have had the honor of photographing weddings in Berlin, Hawaii, St. Lucia, South Africa, and now Cancun, to name a few!

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.

As a Charleston Wedding Photographer, seeing different amazing places and getting to take in wonderful experiences, comes with the pleasure of capturing a couple’s union. The wedding of Lauren and Jason provided attendees with the chance to admire an exquisite Charleston location, and enjoy a very special experience. What was most prized by all, however, was the opportunity the day gave for each person to show their love and celebrate the sweet couple! Lauren and Jason adore Charleston South Carolina and always knew they wanted to have their wedding in this city so rich in history and beauty.
