Isle of Palms, SC | June 18th, 2021

When Madison reached out to my about photographing her engagement on the beach, I was SO excited. I am originally from St. Petersburg, Florida so the beach is always home for me! We decided that a sunrise session would be best for our coast, and I think we made the right decision.

Early Friday morning, I met with Madison & Bryan a little before 6am and we walked right over to the beach.

It was quiet.

The water looked calm.

It was just so peaceful.

We started out with some land photos & I already knew by the first few shots that they were going to nail their session. The sun was slowly rising and the light was beyond perfect. As we captured some fun and loving photos, Madison and Bryan ran back to their beach house to change into their second outfit.

The night before their session, I was thinking about texting Madison about getting in the water for their session (because who doesn't love some intimate photos in the water with their partner)?? THANKFULLY, Madison actually brought it up first and I was so dang excited!!

Once they were in their second outfit, they got right into the water. It was nothing short of perfect. We did some romantic and calmer shots hoping to capture their relationship and connection that they have. (It wasn't hard, their love was so apparent<3)

We almost had the entire beach to ourselves. We took our time and just enjoyed the beautiful sunrise behind us. Madison + Bryan were able to enjoy this time alone for themselves, and just be present in the moment together.
