Folly Beach Wedding Portraits

If you could change anything about your wedding day, would you?

To be honest, that’s not a question I regularly ask myself.  My husband and I will celebrate our fifteenth anniversary in May, and I feel like we dodged a bank account bullet getting married before the Pinterest era sometimes!  Don’t get me wrong; I love styled weddings, and I had old silver on the tables and arrangements of peonies at our reception at a lake clubhouse.  Our photos may be era-dated, but I still love them.  And hey – they were film!  Ah, married before the days of digital…in case I didn’t feel old knowing my 20th high school reunion is also this year, that’ll do it.

I know, I know.  You want a peek.  Hopefully the husband will understand and I will see our 15th anniversary through.  Ha!  I apologize for the quality – the photo is very sharp but my scanner (because, remember, pre-digital) did a crap job reproducing the quality.  (I am so, so sorry, Starved Rock Camera Co.)

Why am I talking about this at all?  Well, at the tail-end of March, I met a newlywed couple at Lighthouse Inlet for a session to celebrate their marriage.  It was a chance to get some really nice portraits of them and not worry about missing family, a bridal party, or skipping reception events.  I thought it was a great idea – portraits without the chaos!   I don’t market myself as a Charleston wedding photographer, but I do enjoy small ceremonies and elopements.  The intimacy is right up my alley.

These photos are some of my favorites to date.
