Charleston Bridal Portraits | Allison | Charleston Wedding Photographer

I woke up that morning with such anticipation.  The significance of this day was huge.  I had prayed two years ago that I would someday have the opportunity to photograph a bride in Charleston.  I patiently waited for my prayers to be answered and Allison was the answer.  I know this sounds deep, and it is, but more than that - it's true. Allison would be the first Charleston Bride to book with me.  (Those of you have paid attention, my prayers were answered twice when Nancy booked with me months later. You can view her bridals here.) I have been blessed to get to know Allison very well over the past year.  Allison took on the task of DIARY OF A CHARLESTON BRIDE.  She blogged each week about her wedding planning.  She let us into that part of her life in hopes to help another bride.  I have truly enjoyed learning so much about Allison through her blogging.  I am much closer and know a little bit more about her as a result. Allison is exquisite, elegant, and has a good heart.  Allison loves life, her family, her friends, her faith, and she deeply loves Carter.  Allison is a kindergarten teacher which means she is patient, loving, and giving.  I admire her and I feel blessed to have had her as a bride.

Be prepared to pick your jaw up off the floor. Allison is wearing an Allure gown from New York Bride and Groom in Charlotte, NC.
