When I left the mainland for Samantha and Hunter’s engagement on Sullivan’s Island, there was a huge storm in the forecast. Luckily, when I crossed over the Ben Sawyer Bridge to Sullivan’s Island, the skies cleared up and we had a gorgeous soft light morning beach engagement session.

Samantha & Hunter are getting married in March of 2023 at Dunes West on Mt. Pleasant in South Carolina. One of the most exclusive wedding venues in South Carolina is Dunes West. What makes this location so unique is it’s an all-inclusive resort, which provides catering and staff services. This allows you to relax, knowing that absolutely everything is being taken care of while your guests are enjoying the oceanfront accommodations. The coastal elegance at Dunes West can’t be matched by any other Mount Pleasant venue and the pictures are a reflection of this fact.

Beach Engagement Session on Sullivan’s Island entrance used was near Fort Moultrie and provided an amazing backdrop for the couple in the wooded areas to keep the beach theme alive, and throughout their image gallery.

A place where many residents visit, but not on this day. On this day we had the beach to ourselves.

Thank you, Samantha & Hunter, for allowing me to capture your engagement session! This truly was a beautiful day, and I cannot wait for your wedding.

WHY we're the perfect match

WE ARE SOULMATES

If you love taking the road less traveled. A trailblazer of sorts. I am a free spirit and don't like conforming to rules particularly. But, i do love when others find their own voice and way on being their own person. So, if that means that you have to burn a few bridges along the way then I guess that's something that has to be done. 

What I love, is that we are who we are. And I am one that loves the ocean and finds peace and serenity at the the water. My clients love peace. Love community with friends and family, and truly lives for the moment.

You are my couple is if you are ready to let loose and have fun and be your true authentic self.


"Over the moon with these pictures"

I may be biased, but I absolutely love Debbie. I have been a part of her photography journey from the start. And I have to say that her evolution for her understanding of photography is amazing. My boyfriend and I wanted a nice beach, golden hour couples' session and of course I snagged Debbie on a weekday. We went to a state park beach and just had a lot of fun. She is so down to earth, so calming but funny, and very easy to talk with. She made my boyfriend feel so relaxed during the entire time. 100% recommend.

"I can't beleive that's us"

I cannot believe that we took these pictures. I mean, I have never seen myself as photogenic at all. And when Debbie asked about any concerns, I laid it all out of everything I didn't like about myself. Her way of talking to me about self-love really stuck with me. The white dress I chose showed all of my goodness and you know what, she made me feel so good, and free that I did not even once worry about anything. She is truly amazing, in all aspects.

"she was amazing for our elopement"

I think Debbie was the perfect hype woman for our elopement. She was there with the smiles, sweet tears, hugs, guidance, and calmness that we needed for the day. Debbie made our elopement so special. Out of all the photographers we spoke with, she just had a realness about her that made me choose her. No sweet talk, pure facts and I loved that she took the time out of her day to text with me for any questions that came up. A true sweetheart!

"the sweetest and most amazing day"

Nothing like having a wedding with close friends and family to celebrate such a special moment. For us, we looked high and low and found Debbie through a referral from another photographer. I am so glad she was available. She was so sweet and funny on our call. Really made us feel so special and had many great suggestions and ideas that we didn't think about. What we got back was nothing short of perfectly captured memories.
