Story time, y’all! In January 2014 Jay and I took a quick weekend trip to Charleston to apartment hunt and we decided to tour a plantation on this trip. We chose Drayton Hall. We absolutely were head over heels touring this historic home. It’s the original house (so many plantations burn to the ground and get rebuilt like 4 times) and was constructed when George Washington was 6 years old!

The whole time I was there, all I could think was “Ooh I’d photograph a bride there, and there, and here, and in this corner, and right there!”. Imagine my dismay when we asked and found out that they really don’t allow photo shoots there anymore because of some bad apples. Sad face.

Fast forward to April of this year (2015). I was looking for a bride to photograph to try out some new stuff when I was introduced to bride-to-be Tara! I had told Tara that she could pick any venue on a specific list I had created when she dropped the bomb on me: she works at Drayton Hall and said we could do it there if I wanted to! Um…YEAH!! Dream come true!

Not only did I get to shoot at a plantation I never thought I’d be able to shoot at, but I gained a gorgeous friend out of it (-: Tara is so incredibly sweet! The day of her bridal portraits we raced against a mega-death storm that was approaching which gave me different light to work with, creating these really dramatic and contrasty photos (which I love!). As I was leaving the shoot, I got a phone call from my mom down in Florida to tell me that my baby niece was born! So all in all, a fantastic day.
