We absolutely adored our time shooting Challie’s bridal session the month before her wedding day! This gorgeous set of bridal portraits took place at Hightower Hall in Historic Brattonsville, South Carolina! Her lovely dress was a stunning match to the scenery and decor of Hightower Hall, and Challie’s contagious joy and anticipation of her big day made her a dream to photograph. Perhaps one of the most unique moments in bridal-portrait history occurred when, at the end of the session, Challie asked “there’s a wall in the house with a collage of a bunch of photos of sheep. I’d really like a photo of me with that wall!” Haha. Of course we had to make that happen 😉 We love it when brides take advantage of their bridal sessions as an opportunity to let their sweet personalities shine through. And Challie’s personality is quite possibly one of the sweetest ever! Enjoy a few of our favorites from Challie’s bridal portrait session at Hightower Hall!
Sweet Laura… you were a beautiful bride and an even more beautiful person! Capturing such a special time in your life was an honor and an absolute blast. We adore you!
Sweet Leslie. We’re at a loss for words to describe you… This girl is just one of the sweetest ever! Not only does she have such a sweet spirit, but she has a darling personality. Leslie is one of the most petite little ladies you will ever meet, but she did not let that stop her from dressing like the grown-up that she is for her wedding look. She rocked a full ball-gown, custom heels and a vintage head-dress! She was a show-stopper for sure. We photographed her bridal portraits at The Lace House at the Governor’s Mansion in Columbia, SC. It was such a lovely venue- definitely on our list from now on of favorite bridal portrait locations! The extraordinary Katie Cotton of Cotton Rouge dolled Leslie up for both her bridal portraits AND her wedding day, and she did a fabulous job, as you can tell. Even though we had a blast capturing these portraits of Leslie, our favorite part was the email we received from her after she’d had a chance to view them for the first time: “I was so stunned with my portraits, I am absolutely in love with all of them! I showed all the girls in my bridal party to help me pick which one…..it was such an experience looking at all of these! I had no idea I could look like that!” We love you, Leslie! Emails like that are what keeps us going in this business when the inevitable, occasional bridezilla pops up 😉 Enjoy a few of our favorites from Leslie’s bridal portrait session!
