Chris has gone above and beyond throughout our experience using him for different milestones to photograph. He did our engagement photography, our wedding photography, and recently our newborn family photos. He is the only photographer we trust and cannot say enough amazing things about him! The pictures are always absolutely stunning and he does such an amazing job capturing sweet and perfect moments. I can’t recommend him enough! We hope to continue to use him forever!

Chris was awesome! I thought I would feel awkward and uncomfortable, but he knew all the best poses! He also picked the most perfect place for our engagement photos! Every single picture turned out amazing and we are so happy to have chosen him as our photographer!

Being from Charleston there are many options of photographers out there. Chris Nelson was highly recommended by many people and close friends. He takes his time to capture that perfect moment and is patient with making sure he meets all your expectations. Couldn’t ask for a better photographer than him and he will always be our go-to for the future:)

Engagement Photography FAQ’s

  • Why is an engagement session important?
    Engagement sessions are a great way for a couple to get comfortable with having their photos taken together. They are also great to use for wedding invitations, guest books, etc.

  • How far in advance should you book engagement photos?
    This is totally up to you.  Turnaround time is typically 1-2 weeks so be sure to keep this in mind if you are planning on using the engagement photos for wedding invitations.

  • What do you bring to an engagement shoot?
    Just yourselves and your awesome personalities. Oh and the engagement ring of course! Feel free to bring any props that may help tell your love story.

  • How long does an engagement shoot last?
    Engagement photo sessions typically last about 1 hour.  If you’re up for it, booking a session with 2 locations can give you even more options.

  • How many photos does an engagement session include?
    You can expect approximately 40 photos from your session. 80 photos if you opt for the black and white edits as well. These images are retouched / color-corrected.

  • What happens if it rains for my photoshoot?
    I’m constantly checking the weather forecast, so if it’s calling for rain we can reschedule to the next available date.  If you’re visiting from out of town, it’s best to try and schedule a session earlier during your stay so we can have a backup date in case of inclement weather.

  • Where should I take my engagement pictures?
    Charleston is a beautiful place with so much to offer.  Depending on what you are looking for (beach setting, big oak trees, historic streets, etc.), I would be more than happy to give recommendations.  If there is a special place you both share (think first date, favorite park, etc.), that would be a great start!
