In recent years the Holy City has become a hub for young couples wanting the perfect engagement portraits. For a downtown Charleston engagement, that means the perfect location, the perfect outfits and just the perfect amount of whimsy for those memorable moments. The soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Cappiello met in high school in Connecticut and while Connecticut has their own gorgeous beaches, Charleston’s flavor is distinctive, and they wanted to capture that in the portraits. They met with Bridgit under sprawling oaks and immediately their infectious personalities poured forward. They were dressed to match in varying shades of blue with him in a navy button-up and cornflower shorts. Her shirt was also cornflower, and she rocked a pair of white capris. Loafers were the perfect choice for him while leather strapped wedges for her were ideal for the mix of terrains in downtown Charleston.
As the rain began to fall on their portraits, the duo changed up their wardrobe really quick. It was his turn to sport the light blue shirt and white shorts while her patterned dress was really fun and added a pop of color. The patter of rain couldn’t dampen their spirits at all, and it was great to see their smiles shine brightly from beginning to end. Bridgit led them down quiet streets and shaded lanes, and we love the couple’s interactions with one another. They held on, danced, and simply had a great time and we’re lucky to have captured it all. Even on a street of cobbled stone, the duo were ready to dance even with the lady in heels. And, of course, a few kisses here and there reminded us why we were there, to celebrate the love that the two of them share.
Thank you so much for bringing us along with you as you ventured around our city. We wish you all the best as you head back home to take this next step together. Congratulations again!
