About the Host of your Charleston Photography Adventure
I am Alexandra, a photographer based out of Charleston, SC, but I love to travel anywhere and everywhere! Being outdoors and exploring beautiful places with my camera is what lights me up. I’m an introvert who has some extrovert tendencies, which makes meeting new people exciting. I love when I click with a client, and we can just have a good time while I capture moments for them.

What to bring to your Charleston Photography Session
Since we will be going to multiple locations with different terrain for your Charleston photography session, your best bet is to bring a change of clothes, so you have something to walk the trails on and also play on the beach in. You will want to be wearing shoes that are comfy (hiking boots, tennis shoes, etc.) for walking but also sandals or just go barefoot on the beach. If it’s in the fall/winter months, I recommend multiple layers (sweater, jacket, hat, etc.) Since our adventure will be at least 2-3 hours long, you’re going to want to be comfortable. We will be driving to the different destinations, so you won’t have to carry around the extra baggage.
I also recommend, depending on what month you visit, bringing, sunblock, bug spray, a hat, extra pair of clothes, water and a towel (especially if you want to swim at the beach).
How to prepare for your Charleston Photography Session
Charleston International airport is a fairly small airport, so there are often layovers when you are flying here for your Charleston photography session. Charleston itself is a pretty small city, but one of the top cities in the country for tourism. It’s known for its history, the amazing food and the beaches. For your adventure session, you are going to need a car or Uber to get you to multiple locations.
As for weather, January and February are very chilly and most of the vegetation is dried up, so it’s not as lush as it normally is. That’s why March through May/June are more ideal. The summers are extremely hot and humid, so most people have a hard time being outside for an extended period of time. Autumn (September through early December) is beautiful with slightly changing fall foliage. Photo sessions are at a high during the fall months because temperatures are much milder. Light sweaters are the most popular, but temps can drop quickly, so bring a jacket.
