Bridgit ventured an hour south of Charleston for some simply lovely Kiawah Island engagement portraits, and we’re happy to share our favorites with you today! World-renowned for its beaches and quiet lifestyle, Kiawah Island’s private coast and natural beauty is perfect for vacationing couples looking for a southern feel to their portraits. Karina and John made the most of the beach during their time with Bridgit and we love the amount of fun and playfulness in their portraits. Despite the clouds trying to block out their sun, the smiles never faded.
We adore couples that stray from posed pictures and just enjoy their time with one another because that always makes for some of the best photographs. It was so much fun watching these two being lost in one another, not caring at all about the waves lapping at their feet. Karina was so lovely in her white sundress and John was no slouch either in his bright blue button-up and blue jeans, seasonal ensembles for a warm beach day. Aside from the portrait of her back to him with his arms wrapped around her, the photos atop the boardwalk were our favorites! Their playful nature shone through and the kiss with her lifted in his arms was the perfect finish to their day.
Thank you both so much for inviting us to join your beach day and we wish you both nothing but the best as you head toward your wedding day. Best of luck to you both!
