Shayla & Sean

I met Shayla & Sean about a year ago, while they were touring wedding venues. Working for a wedding venue, I get to meet so many great couples. Sean and Shayla loved 1208 Washington Place (my other day time job) and decided to book the venue for their wedding in 2021.

I was put in contact through another vendor, to photograph their engagement and wedding photos. I was thrilled to work with these two, as they are the most easy, laid back couple.

We started our day at 1208 Washington Place, to get a few shots on the terraces and vaults. We grabbed a few in front of the building as well. The revolving doors always make for a great photo.

Once we finished up there, they changed clothes and we drove over to a local spot near the Congaree River. This wooded location is perfect any time of year. The Gervais street bridge is such an iconic part of Columbia. We finished up our session down by the water and with an overcast sky, it was more than I could hope for.

I loved chatting wedding details with both of them. I learned that they have a sweet German Shepherd, that I will have to photograph in the future, and that they love spending time taking her for walks near the river.

Here is a sneak peek from their session last night.
