andy + olivia | by amelia + dan

When we planned our trip to Charleston, I knew that I wanted to schedule a photo session for our 10 year anniversary. I was not happy with our wedding photos and my husband and I don't get to vacation often so this was a big deal! The task was daunting... using Google to find the perfect photographer. After weeks of searching through a lot of bad websites I came across amelia + dan. If you are the "picture taker" of the family, I highly recommend booking a local photographer on your next vacation! For one, you don't want to always be the one taking the photos, you actually want to be in some. And two, you can't always trust a stranger to take your photo, you'll end up not in focus or with a photo of your feet chopped off. Finally, you don't want all cheesy, posed vacation photos.

Here are some photos I wanted to share from our session. There are things I would have done differently as far as outfits but I was so busy leading up to the trip that I just didn't have the time to put into it. I definitely know the stress my clients feel and I am actually working on a clothing guide for my clients to help plan their session.

These were shot by Amelia Hale and edited by yours truly:

After Charleston, we headed out to Folly Beach, about 25 minutes from downtown. Let me just state that the beach is my favorite place in the whole. wide. world. My goal is to get my boys out to the ocean for the first time next year!






I absolutely loved our time together on vacation and now I have these photos to cherish forever.

Thanks so much amelia + dan!
