Tag: Charleston Elopement

Have a small wedding? A Charleston elopement might be just your style. Elopements can range from elegant, styled affairs to simple ceremonies with just the bride and groom and their closest family.

If you want a simple, stress free wedding day, this is the way to do it! During a Charleston elopement, I typically photograph the ceremony and then group photos with family and friends in attendance. After those important moments, I like to make a lot of time for bride and groom photos before you head off to your post elopement celebrations! If you’re thinking of an elopement, contact me for pricing!
