Chris + Misti . Charleston Photography

When Chris emailed me a month ago, I knew this session was going to be something special.  He said he was married to the most beautiful woman in the world and wanted to do something extra special for her on their one year anniversary during a romantic getaway to Charleston.  I was photographing a wedding that day, but with that sweet note how could I refuse?  I couldn’t!

This adorable and very much in love couple didn’t have a chance to do an engagement session before their wedding day, so this was the perfect alternative.  On the morning of their anniversary, Chris surprised Misti with breakfast in bed and an itinerary, including a hair appointment and our session.  She was blown away by his thoughtfulness as was everyone she told.

Happy anniversary, Chris and Misti!  Love is a many splendored thing and I wish you all the best in your new life together as husband and wife.

    Your photographer is wonderful at capturing your expressive faces! Misti, you are every inch a model, and Chris is a dreamboat! I say, do a photo shoot on Corfu once Greece gets better for tourists!
