Emily & Caleb’s Stunning Engagement Session with Beaufort SC Photographer

While Emily has grown up in the upstate, her and her family are originally from the Beaufort area. When I randomly posted that I would love to do a session in the area while I was there on vacation she messaged me and asked if we could switch their upcoming engagement session there!! Y’all I am so glad we did because it was so fun to do these in a place that is near and dear to her family!! Caleb & Emily braved the humidity and bugs, and we had so much fun!! I loved getting to spend the evening with both of them and getting to know them even more!! Our session was cut short by an evening thunderstorm but y’all I am so excited to share the images from the first part of their session!!

Why Beaufort, SC?

Engagement photographers always look for unique, sentimental locations to make each session special. Beaufort, SC, with its rich history and stunning landscapes, provides the perfect backdrop for capturing those unforgettable moments. It’s no wonder Emily wanted to have her engagement photos taken here, where her roots run deep.

Here are some of the best photo spots in Beaufort, SC!

The Magic of Coosaw Plantation

Emily’s family are friends with the owners of the Coosaw Plantation, so they asked if we could do the session there. Y’all, this place is BEAUTIFUL!!! I wish we would have had more time there, but I’m so glad we were able to at least do part of the session here before the rain hit!! Here are a few of my favorite images from Emily & Caleb’s engagement session.
