I Want to be Your Charleston Engagement Photographer!
Thanks for visiting! My name is David A. Smith, and I’d love to photograph your engagement session, and, hopefully, eventual wedding, at the beautiful locations of Charleston, Folly Beach, or throughout the Low Country region in South Carolina!
Giving couples dreamy film-like + cinematic-style photography is something I’ve had the pleasure of doing since 2010.
Most importantly, though, I want to make sure you have a wonderful experience on what should be leading up to one of the happiest days in your lives!
Why I Love Charleston Engagements
While I have photographed lots of engagement sessions over the years, I really love the engagement sessions in beautiful and adventurous locations.
This is because the couple can really focus on what’s important, their love for each other. They can also focus on this while having a gorgeous backdrop for their pictures.
That’s why I’d love to document your intimate engagement session in Charleston, Folly Beach, or throughout the Low Country region in South Carolina!
Planning a Charleston Engagement
I’ve been a wedding + elopement photographer since 2010, and I take pride in the fact that I can also help coordinate an engagement or wedding for my couples.
If you need any assistance in planning, travel arrangements, scheduling, or any other situation that might arise, I’m here to assist.
Charleston, Folly Beach, and the South Carolina Low Country are such beautiful locations that I don’t want you to worry about anything. I want you to be able to relax and enjoy this incredibly special time.
I’m here every step of the way for you and your partner!
A Full Day’s Coverage for Your Charleston Wedding + Elopement
Ever since I started doing wedding + elopement photography professionally in 2010, I’ve wanted to tell the entire story of my clients.
That means I will not impose a time limit on your wedding + elopement day.
You give me a start time, and I’m there until all the events of the day and/or reception are covered.
Because I’m devoting my attention to the entire day, and am usually traveling to document your celebration, I cannot offer pricing by the hour. Everything is based on a full day’s coverage, regardless.
Charleston Wedding + Elopement Photography Package
No matter the size and scope of the wedding, all my couples receive a full day’s worth of authentic and personalized photography coverage. I take all your creative ideas and input into mind as I want to tell the whole story of your day instead of limiting you based on a time limit.
Once the wedding is complete, your photos will be delivered to you in a private password-protected gallery. That is where you’ll be able to download the photos in high-resolution format, which means full print quality with full print rights. They are also going to be delivered in “out-of-the-camera” format, which is just edited for cropping and exposure, along with two different edited color versions and a black-and-white version.
You’ll also receive a print and product credit to spend on physical prints so you can get a jump start on having some great keepsakes from your special day!
All celebrations also receive next-day sneak previews and lighting quick turn-around times on your photos. You are not going to be waiting weeks and months to enjoy your photos. I guarantee that.
I also offer coordination services and assistance for all celebrations. I’ve been photographing weddings + elopements since 2010, and it’s my pleasure to be an extra coordinator for couples.
All travel considerations will be included, so you will be hit with any additional charges. I travel all over the United States, and I’m happy to do so for your celebration.
Pricing for additional options such as engagement sessions, bridal sessions, boudoir sessions, rehearsal dinner coverage, full weekend coverage, wedding albums, and 2nd shooters will be included in the message I send back to you. A lot of times, these can and will be complimentary, but you’ll get a variety of options to help you decide what is best for you + your partner.
Since I believe in telling the full story of the wedding day through still photography and cannot work more than one wedding in a day, I do not offer “by-the-hour pricing” or videography services.
Please inquire directly for a personalized quote based on the date, location, and specifics of your wedding + elopement celebration.
