Shannon recently spent some time by the ocean for some beautiful Folly Beach engagement portraits, and we’re elated to share her experiences with you today. With sun-bleached trees, gorgeous waterfront views and out of the way nooks and crannies, Folly Beach is an ideal spot for unique engagement portraits. Jordan and Matthew are definitely adventurous and wanted their sense of adventure and love for each other to shine through in their portraits. Jordan was gorgeous in her floral-printed blue dress while Matthew was quite handsome in his matching blue shirt, blazer and distressed grey jeans. They were Charleston casual at its finest.
Shannon made sure to get a few ‘traditional’ portraits of the duo smiling at the camera and holding onto one another but once they got moving, the candid shots stole the show. We love the wave-worn rocks that they ventured up on and the light of the setting sun set both of them aglow. One of the sweetest pictures we’ve ever seen was that of Jordan leaning her head against Matthew’s chest. The serenity on her face as she closed her eyes was a true “awww” moment.
Shannon led them further down the beach to a grove of trees bleached by the sun. We love the faded colors of these trees as they look amazing sticking out of the white sand. Jordan and Matthew seemed to enjoy them as they moved back and forth between them, almost playing a game of tag. To see the duo’s playful side was so sweet. And, to top it off, they even danced a little bit atop a fallen tree – which was such an incredible way to end a beautiful day.
Thank you both so much for inviting us along for your engagement portraits. We had a blast. We’ll see you again early next year for your wedding! Congratulations again!
