First opened to visitors in the 1870s, Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, South Carolina, boasts a gorgeous natural setting with an array of plants and flowers, beautiful animals freely roaming the property, and, of course, the well-known picturesque Spanish moss covered oaks so distinctive to this southern city. We were thrilled when Britni and Andrew decided to do their engagement photos here while they were in town for a wedding and asked us to capture these special memories for them.
This couple was initially reluctant to admit their feelings for one another despite constantly being together and finding excuses to be alone (like needing help with Christmas shopping). That all changed, however, the day Britni was scheduled to leave for basic duty. The two finally confessed that they knew this could be something truly special, and although they had to spend time apart, just like a classic love story, the two wrote letters to one another with updates and sweet sentiments, stressing how much they missed each other during her time away. When Britni returned home, the two were inseparable. Andrew calls Britni his best friend, and the two are ready to begin this new adventure together as husband and wife.
A breathtaking garden setting at Magnolia Plantation meshed flawlessly with Britni's flowing white dress and her feminine pink floral printed skirt, and we loved Andrew's choice to wear suspenders. So classic. These two were all smiles throughout the session, and the genuine reactions and laughter they shared are our favorite parts of this shoot. Join us as we whisk you away to romantic Charleston for this lovely engagement.
