Well, it might have taken me a year (eep!) to post my travel shots from my New Orleans adventuring, but Charleston is locked and loaded just two weeks later! Woohoo! This was my first visit to beautiful Charleston, and it did not disappoint. It is a charming, eclectic city with a whole lot of personality. Of course, you can’t have a great trip without great food, and I was able to sample some of the best cuisine in the city, thanks to Anna Dobrenski, who lent her food expertise as I made my sections. If you’re ever in Charleston, make sure to have the shrimp and grits at S.N.O.B (Slightly North of Broad). So, so, so good!
I took this trip with a group of photographers, so of course, we included the “Picture Perfect” historical walking tour. I highly recommend calling Joyce at Charleston History Tours’ Perfect Picture walking tour. She does an incredible job of sharing an abundance of historical information about some of the oldest parts of Charleston. On top of that, she gives you great tips for photographing the gorgeous architecture of some seriously historical buildings. I learned a ton, and also was able to document that part of the trip.
Some other highlights of the trip included Sullivan’s Island beach (a beautiful public beach with gentle water and pretty sand!), Magnolia Plantation, and my new most favorite place on earth, Angel Oak Tree. I cannot wait to get back to Charleston someday, to spend even more time at these lovely places!
