Creating these engagement photos with Crista and Jesse were a blast. They are just the absolute nicest people you could be around and their love for each other needs more restraint than encouragement. They wanted some Charleston feel that showed some architecture, but definitely not those wide shots that show them small in the image. We knew right off that we wanted images that got right in there and captured their affection and deep love for each other. For those of you that don’t know Charleston, there’s a boat on the way out to Folly Beach that is available to the public to write on, paint, draw and just openly create on at will. It’s called the Folly Boat. So during the earlier part of the shoot, Crista’s Dad and sister painted it white so they would have a blank canvas to write their save the date on. When we arrived just before sunset, her Dad was patiently guarding the boat till we got there. How cool is that? Congratulation Crista and Jesse- we’re looking forward to your big day!
