Do we have social media to thank for the changing approaches to bridal portraits? When there are so many outlets to post your photos, it certainly paves the way for a snapping a slew of differently styled shots. With that in mind, we gathered our crew and headed out to a barrier sea island to take this series of stunning images showcasing Charleston’s top bridal looks. Fierce. Femme. Fabulous. There’s room for every sort of pose these days! Enjoy the peek and soak up the way we worked in indigo-hues as our “something blue.”
Oh, and a word about the location: Stay tuned, everyone. John’s Island’s Kiawah River community (set just off Betsey Kerrison Parkway along acres upon acres of gorgeous countryside and marshland) will no doubt become your dream luxury wedding destination. Part farmland, part resort, part neighborhood, and lots wild, the property’s chapel and other event spaces will be taking reservations starting in spring 2022. But we couldn’t resist heading that way now to revel in its stunning landscapes and share a peek of what’s to come. Enjoy!
