Runnymede Plantation Wedding Couple Portraits

Jessica’s and Sean’s relationship is all thanks to the game of golf and Sean’s sister, Michelle. Jessica and Michelle played golf at East Carolina University together, which led to the pair being introduced. Since meeting in 2007, these two have taken on long distance love and multiple moves before settling in Jessica’s hometown of Charleston. Aside from their passion for athletics, Jessica and Sean agree that their number love is their dog, Bauer, a German shepard- malamute mix that made a brief cameo at the wedding to share in the celebration.

For their wedding, Jessica envisioned a vintage, Bohemian style. She spent months acquiring mix-matched vintage china from various thrift stores in the Charleston area. Centerpieces included pink and gold painted bottles with fresh lavender and pink astilbe. A quick hair accessory change from veil to flower crown completed Jessica’s bohemian bride look. After oysters and lowcountry BBQ, guests danced under a large oak tree illuminated with cafe lights. At the end of the evening, the couple were whisked away in a vintage Bentley. Congratulations Jessica and Sean!

Legare Waring Bridal Portraits

I have been patiently waiting to share this bridal session since late spring. Lauren’s ruffled oatmeal blush gown by Watters is a stunning choice that offers the perfect romantic elegance. Legare Waring House is nestled on the grounds of Charlestowne Landing. The historic home and avenue of oaks are the epitome of Southern landscapes here in Charleston. I will be sharing Lauren’s and Josh’s wedding at Legare Waring House later this week. Until then, enjoy some of my favorites from Lauren’s bridal portraits.

Rainbow Row wedding portrait Charleston

Megan’s and Tomek’s fall wedding celebrated historic Downtown Charleston. The couple decided on a first look by the Pineapple Fountain at Waterfront Park followed by Rainbow Row portraits. Near the historic Charleston market, friends and family gathered at the Doubletree Hotel to witness the pair exchange vows. Another Charleston touch I liked was incorporating palm roses with place cards. Megan included some personal elements in memory of her mother. Her two garters were sewn from pieces of her mother’s wedding gown, she wores her mother’s pearls,  and her bouquet included a heart locket with her mother’s photo.

The couple met Megan’s freshmen year of dental school during a welcoming party. They played against each other in a game of cornhole. The next day Megan walked into class to find Tomek the assigned T.A. and her tutor for the semester. Needless to say their relationship flourished from there. There is also another love in their life – their dog, Sarge. Though he was unable to attend the wedding, he was not forgotten. Guests’ favors were cookies shaped like dog bones and during their couple portraits, Megan and Tomek talked about Sarge’s morning drop-off to doggie daycare. This love and attentiveness is not for Sarge alone. It’s obvious watching Megan and Tomek with their friends and family the bonds they share with so many. Congratulations to Megan and Tomek!

boone hall plantation wedding portrait

Amanda and Andrew have been on of my favorite couples. Flashback to spring 2013 when they won a Pinterest contest I held in conjunction with A Lowcountry Wedding. After getting to know them and learning more about their love story, I had no doubt I was meant to be a part of their special day. The couple met in high school and had their first date at Elmo’s Diner in Durham. Things just clicked and the pair have been together ever since. Andrew has a photojournalist background and Amanda is a pharmacist. Together his artistic free-spirited nature and her fun-loving, detailed oriented ways create a wonderfully balance relationship.

For their wedding they envisioned a romantic and vintage day. The soft warm palette with grey accents complimented the rustic Cotton Dock well. Unique features included family style dining with long tables and a custom made joggling board served as a take home keepsake that guests could pen their well-wishes. After a sit-down Southern dinner and live music from Ultimate Sound Band, Amanda and Andrew had a boat sendoff on the back of the dock. Congratulations Amanda and Andrew!

    Karen Peters - I wanted to thank Priscilla for capturing all the special photos of Amanda and Andrew’s wedding. You are a very talented photography and it was a pleasure getting to know you and your assistant. Your photographs captured the true meaning of Amanda and Andrew’s relationship and the love that they have for each other. Thank you again for being a part of our lives.

Boone Hall Plantation Bridal Portrait

This past August I photographed Amanda’s bridal portraits at Boone Hall Plantation. The heat index undoubtedly neared 100 degrees. When temperatures reach unfriendly conditions my first priority is the comfort and safety of my client. For most of the session, I kept Amanda in shade and overexposed the image. My assistant discovered a secondary use for a reflector by using it to fan Amanda between setting up shots. Her mother also brought a handheld fan and we tried to drive to the locations rather than walking the entire grounds. Adapting for the weather paid off because her bridal portraits are stunning.
