Allison & Tom’s Rustic Engagement
This engagement session at Cypress Gardens is one I’ll never forget! As a photographer I’m always up for new challenges so when Allison and Tom told me about their love for the outdoors and that they were thinking of this location, I was over-the-moon excited. :) Just look at all the GORGEOUS light! Lydia, at Ever Ours, published this e-session and she talks a little about the location’s connection with the movie, The Notebook. If you’re looking for a rustic engagement location a little outside Charleston, SC, this is your place. It’s located in Moncks Corner and comes complete with a butterfly house, a cypress swamp that you can paddle around in, and extensive grounds to traips through. The people who work at Cypress Gardens are quick to offer advice or help. One sweet lady even paddled me around to make my job a bit easier. Enjoy!
We found some property outside Cypress Gardens which afforded the superb red leafed tree you see above! I was a little afraid that someone might come running out with a shotgun, yelling, “Get off my land!” Ha! No one bothered us and we walked around the tall grassy fields for about 15 minutes. The sun was setting and we finished our session with some serenly, romantic closeups.
This is why I LOVE being a Charleston photographer!
