A Deeper Dive

Why Did You Choose to Open in Charleston?

I started my business in college as a Photography major. Shortly after graduating, I joined the corporate world and lost touch with my creative side. After a 7 year hiatus and during the pandemic shutdown, I picked up my camera again and it felt as if no time had passed. I reopened in March 2021, and went full time in May 2021. Honestly, my only regret is not restarting my business sooner.

Who is Your Typical Client?

Clients either planning on getting engaged (surprise proposals are the best!) or already engaged and planning their bachelorette party and/or wedding/elopement in Charleston.

Does Your Business Offer Services in Other Locations Besides Charleston?

Absolutely. I travel quite a bit back to the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area; and have also opened up to the Savannah, Hilton Head, and Beaufort markets. I love to travel, so the more traveling I do, the better!

Tell Us Anything Else About Your Business That Our Visitors Might Like to Know.

I absolutely love Charleston. I have spent countless hours being a tourist in my own city to find all the hidden gems to take my clients to!

Just for Fun!

Tell Us Your Favorite Thing(s) to Do in Charleston.

Going to the beach, finding a new restaurant or bar, and exploring! There’s so much to do in Charleston, and in 5 years, I still have so much on my list to see!

Where is Your Favorite Place to Eat/Drink in Charleston?

Basic Kitchen, Off Track Ice Cream, Tempest, R.Kitchen, Vintage Lounge, Ritual, Citrus Club, and the list goes on!

What’s the Craziest Experience You’ve Had with a Client?

I had a recent couple who was from Pheonix, Arizona. The grooms’ parents lived in Charleston, which is why they chose to Elope in Charleston. Turns out he grew up 3 minutes down the road from me in Maryland, and his sister grew up with some of my best friends.

Where’s Your Favorite Place to Travel Outside of Charleston?

I really love the West Coast and New England (specifically a Boston fall, nothing beats it!) But I also loved traveling to Paris, Barcelona, and Beirut. I’ve been traveling my entire life, and cannot imagine not having experienced some of those cultures.
