Planning a Meaningful Engagement Session
Whenever I start planning an engagement session with a couple I always ask them a few key questions to ensure we capture their session in locations that have meaning to them as a couple. I ask…
What do you do in your spare time individually and as a couple?
Where do you feel most comfortable inside or outside?
What is your favorite climate?
When outdoors, do you like to feel enclosed or open?
What is your favorite thing to do together as a couple?
By starting here we narrow down locations where each couple will feel most comfortable and we can then decide on outfits, time of day, and everything else that goes into the perfect engagement session.
So when it came time for Jami and Danny’s engagement session it was clear we needed to do them in Charleston where they live and spend most of their time together as a couple. And I was of course excited to capture them in this beautiful historic city!
Colonial Lake | Charleston, SC
We spent part of Jami and Danny’s session at Colonial Lake where they’ve spent time as a couple and a family with their new fur baby Penny Lane, who by the way has her own Instagram. She’s the absolute cutest so go give her a follow! I’m over here keeping my fingers crossed Penny Lane makes an appearance on their wedding day. 😉
Walking around the beauty of Colonial Lake felt calm, comfortable, and the perfect place to take photos together as a family.
The Battery + Historic Homes | Charleston, SC
We then spent the other half of Jami and Danny’s session amongst the beautiful cobblestone streets and historic homes that you can’t help but love. The incredible Southern charm of Charleston is something you have to experience if you haven’t been!
We walked along The Battery at sunrise to start off their engagement session which was incredible because it felt like we had all of Charleston to ourselves. We then wandered through White Point Garden and off to the amazing homes surrounding the area. Everything about their engagement session was just magical!

Congrats Jami and Danny! I absolutely can’t wait to celebrate your big day in 2020!
