I have never been so excited to wake up at 5:30 am in my life. We were originally planning to do Alexis and Shawn’s engagement session the evening before, but we got rained out and had to pivot. It all worked out for the best though, because the next morning there wasn’t a rain cloud in the sky! Bonus- Downtown Charleston was soo quiet. I think we only saw 5 other people the whole time we were shooting!
We grabbed dinner the night before their session and ended up spending 2 or 3 hours at Saltwater Cowboys chatting about anything and everything! I called my mom when I was on my way back to the hotel and I told her I felt like I had known them for years! I found this out after I got home, but Alexis and I actually have the same hairdresser!! (We love you Monica!!) I had so much fun walking all over Downtown Charleston with these two and they are both so relaxed and natural in front of the camera!
Also! I can’t believe I’ve lived 2 1/2 hours away from Charleston for the last 17 years, but hadn’t really explored the city until this past March! I came down with my friend Michelle in March for a photography workshop and fell in LOVE with the Holy City. I just love all the colorful buildings, cobblestone streets, and palm trees! I feel like the city was made for me and I can’t wait to keep exploring it!!
