Styled Shoot // Lowndes Grove – Downtown Charleston

I still can’t get over how beautiful the styled shoot at Lowndes Grove was! I wanted to shoot at this venue since I had first seen pictures of it on social media. It just looked like a dreamy fairytale location to me and if I got married again, this is probably the venue on top of my wish list.

As soon as you drive through the huge metal gate, a majestic, white plantation house appears right in front of you. Surrounded by old live oaks, the 1786 era main house sits right on the Ashley River. From the glass-enclosed portico, you have the most amazing view of the water.

 

 

Believe me, you’ll experience breathtaking panoramic sunsets, standing on the dock, looking at the water and hearing the wind blowing through the oaks, the Spanish moss waving above you. Lowndes Grove is definitely one of those downtown Charleston heirlooms that leaves you speechless because of its scenic beauty!

 

 

The day of the shoot

was the first warm day after a period of grey and freezing winter days and I literally felt like I was coming out of hibernation. Do you know that feeling the first couple days of spring when your body reacts to the warmer weather and you feel like you just fell in love? Well, that’s how I felt. Encouraged by that feeling, I was even more excited for the shoot.

It was a two-day event and Cindy with Eventfully Yours had gathered an amazing team of vendors. From the florists to hair and makeup to the rentals – I loved everything about it and I am glad I could be part of such a beautiful event.

But even though I got to capture many beautiful moments and a lot of my favorite shots came from that session, nothing was as valuable as the relationships I made that day. I met incredible photographers who I value, learned a lot from and even call friends now. This shoot showed me once again how important community is over competition.Bobbi Brinkman Photography ~ education
