We were so exited to do Alex and Ryan’s engagement photography session on the beach in Charleston. We read up about which beaches would be the best setting and planned for a beautiful sunset backdrop.
Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and it was pouring down rain in Charleston when we arrived. But, since we had all come from out of town, Alex and Ryan were up for Plan B! Ryan is a graduate of the Citadel, so he knew just where to go for some romantic pictures in the rain.
Even though it wasn’t the beach, the beautiful palm trees, cobblestone streets, and historic storefronts in Charleston made a gorgeous and unique setting. There is something so classically romantic about kissing under an umbrella in the rain; I think we might just have to do it on purpose next time!
And we have to give Alex a gold star for her convincing smile, even though she was freezing! We had a great time getting to know Alex and Ryan a little better after the photo session and can’t wait to photograph their wedding on the Citadel campus next May!
