Our last post talked about some of the best engagement session locations surrounding the Charleston area. An engagement session is a great way to get photos of you and your partner during such a special moment in life and it also allows you to meet your wedding photographer before your wedding and get completely comfortable in front of the camera.

Today, we’ll be talking about where you should take Charleston engagement photos if you’re wanting a beach backdrop! Your engagement session is just one of the many exciting events in your journey as a couple. An engagement session is a great way to capture your love for one another and create lasting memories for you and your family for generations to come. These photos can be used to formally announce your engagement, put on invitations, print for friends and family, display at your actual wedding, and so much more! Deciding on a location for your session can be tough, especially with so many beautiful spots out there. But don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here are some of our favorite beach locations for engagement sessions in the Charleston area
Folly Beach Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve
We love all areas of Folly Beach if you’re looking for Charleston engagement photos, but the Folly Beach Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve is definitely our No. 1 choice. There are so many different options in this small area, so with an outfit change and a short walk, it can look like your session was in two completely different places. From the rocks that lead out into the water and the driftwood trees along the beach, to the grassy, tree-covered sand dunes – you get everything there is to love about the beach in Charleston. It can be pretty busy during sunset with regular visitors coming to admire the view or check out the lighthouse, so sunrise is always a great option if you want the beach all to yourself. We think this location makes a great backdrop for an engagement session, especially if you’re native to the Charleston area!
Botany Bay Heritage Preserve
We love to take photos in unique locations, so if you’re up for a hike or a drive to a secluded. peaceful spot, we’re your photographers.
