Magnolia Plantation & Garden Engagement Session, Charleston SC |Marisa & Michael|

Marisa & Michael had their engagement shoot at the magical Magnolia Plantation & Gardens this past weekend! Working with this sweet couple was a dream!  I know I say that about all my couples but it’s true every time! We have been so blessed to work with genuinely kind & sweet people & we love being part of their story & staying in touch with them over the years!

Marisa & Michael were up for anything-even taking a photo with a peacock just for fun! They even flew from Virginia to Charleston for their engagement photos at the garden!

This fun-loving couple is always up for an adventure, they love hiking in Virginia among other outdoor things. In fact, Michael proposed to Marisa at the top of a mountain while on a hiking trip!

On this particular day the garden was starting to bloom & the light was absolutely dreamy!!! I loved how the their photos capture the light peeking through the trees & gives it a fairytale look! We took these photos during golden hour which is a photography dream! Learn more about golden hour here.

It was such a pleasure getting to know these two & I can’t wait to see them & hug them again on their wedding day this April! I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from their engagement session!

Love these sweet little moments where are they just looking at one another!!!!

This is THE BRIDGE where everyone wants their photo! If you make a trip to Magnolia Plantation & Garden you have to checkout this beautiful bridge!

Genuine laughs are my favorite! I love for my couples photos to show their personalities, love for one another, & the joy between them!

Loving Marisa’s Model face here!!! Isn’t she just gorgeous!!!

You can’t have photographs in Charleston without incorporating the beautiful live oaks we have to offer!!! I can’t get enough of these live oaks & spanish moss & how majestic they are!!!
