Our portrait sessions last from 1 to 1 ½ hours, depending on the size of your group and how long you want to stay out. For smaller groups with young children, a 1-hour session is often plenty of time.
We shoot portraits on location, often on the beach, in parks, or in historic Charleston.
Typically, we schedule portrait sessions around sunset, when the natural light is more complimentary. It’s also easier for people to look toward the sun as it gets lower on the horizon. We can also schedule sunrise sessions for the early risers or for parents with children who are better served with a sunrise session.
Sometimes, rain or extreme wind will force the shoot to be postponed. Because we live on the Isle of Palms, it’s easy for us to wait on weather developments. If we do have to cancel, we will work with you on rescheduling. When possible, we recommend that you plan your photo session early in your stay, so we have more rescheduling opportunities should something come up.
