It’s pretty rare that I get nervous before shoots anymore these days, but if there’s anytime I’m going to feel a little nervous it’s when I am shooting another photographer’s photos. So when Karen reached out to me to ask about anniversary photos for her and Chris while they were in town visiting Charleston, I immediately got a little nervous. But as soon as I met these two downtown, all those nerves faded away. Because both Karen and Chris were SO easy to talk to, that it was impossible to do anything but have fun with these two.

Our time together also gave way to a pretty funny incident, as a resident of a downtown house we were shooting in front of came out to talk with us and immediately recognized me from a few weeks before when let’s just a say a little bit of confetti was left behind in his back alley. It gave us all something to laugh about as we quickly made our way to a new spot, and I still have not been back to that alley haha!

The best part about this session thought was that I 100% left with a new friend. You see rather than being nervous that Karen was a photographer herself, I should have been excited. Because later this year she’ll now be second shooting a wedding with me when I travel up to Pennsylvania and I could not be more excited.
Karen and Chris, I could not have enjoyed our time together more. But perhaps the best part of this session was knowing afterwards how much y’all enjoyed your images. Seeing Karen printing and framing and displaying these photos in your home seriously makes my heart so happy. People like the two of you are the reason I do what I do, and I thank you for trusting me to capture these for you!
