As we enter one of my all time FAVE seasons in Charleston, I thought it would be fun to share some of my top engagement locations in Charleston. Being from Charleston, I secretly feel like I am a tour guide for a lot of people. So let me take you on a tour of some of my favorite spots around town!
The White House With The Blue Shutters
First up, one of my favorite houses on all of the peninsula. If you follow my Instagram, you have seen this house a lot. What can I say? I just love it! I tell all of my couples that it reminds me of what Greece might look like, not that I have ever been to Greece, but one can imagine! This house is on Tradd St at the corner of Church St! It is a very popular stop for most of my engaged couples! And I think you can see why!
The Cobblestone Road
Another favorite of mine is Chalmers Ave! This road is an amazing place to start a session, because it is close to parking and it is pretty quiet. Most people do not drive down a cobblestone road unless they live on it or they are a tourist who took a wrong bumpy turn.
The Pink Wall
The Mills House Hotel pink wall is an Instagram influencers dream! But it is also the quintessential Charleston backdrop for engagement portraits with its light pink walls and Palmetto Trees. Nestled on the corner of Meeting St and Queen St, it has a parking garage perfect for making this a meeting spot for sessions.
There are actually 3 of my absolute FAVE spots on Meeting St! First there is Hibernian Hall with it’s grand veranda, checkered floors and white columns.
Then there is the white gate! A gate that I happened to stumble upon and now use pretty often for some epic canvas worthy portraits.
And finally, if you are in Charleston in March/April, you know that the wisteria blooming is magical! And this spot on Meeting St is the perfect place to capture all of the blooms!
Lastly, the spot that I always suggest for the dreamiest Spanish Moss! Hampton Park is a stunning park a short drive from the pastel clad homes in the historic district. When the sunlight hits the Spanish Moss, a magical golden tinsel appears on the trees, and Hampton Park turns into a fairytale spot for engagement portraits.
Narrowing down locations to my top 5 in Charleston for engagement sessions was harder than it seems. You really can not go wrong in the Holy City, but these spots sure have stolen my heart. So make sure to save this list for your next visit to Charleston!
