Charleston SC Wedding of Caroline & Joe

My wedding internship with Caroline Ghetes continues. Anybody who thinks being a wedding photographer is easy, well, they are sorely mistaken. Try standing, running around…in the rain, for 11 hours straight, getting attacked by fire ants, all in 100 degree weather. Yep, not easy. But it was really, really, really, fun!

Now on to the fabulous couple, Caroline and Joe. They met while studying abroad. They fell in love. A long distance relationship between Canada and South Carolina ensued. Joe designed a wooden car. For serious folks. Caroline moved closer to Joe and started design school. She designed and made each and every bridesmaid dress! On a warm and rainy day in Charleston, South Carolina, Caroline and Joe were married. Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day!
