It’s been a long time since I did a wedding at Brookgreen Gardens. It’s a really pretty area and weddings there always seem to turn out beautiful. This ceremony was at the Holiday Cottage, which was the same location I had a wedding the last time. I guess they also have weddings in another part of the gardens as well, but the cottage area is very nice. In the past the only way a photographer could work in the gardens was if they were working for a wedding. However, the wedding coordinator at the Holiday Cottage told me they have a new policy. I need to check into it, because I would love to be able to do engagement pictures from time to time. I believe they charge a substantial amount for doing a shoot in the gardens, but it might very well be worth the price for a couple. Anyway, I had a lot of pictures I really liked. I tried to pick out some of them so I could have a reasonable length blog post. I hope you enjoy them below.

I just wanted to put up a quick post about a recent wedding in Brookgreen Gardens, I will likely be putting up a post with more general pictures from this wedding later on. The bride wanted to do first look pictures, where instead of seeing the groom at the ceremony like normal, they did something special beforehand. I hadn’t really done this before exactly, but I thought what would look good was the bride in focus as she walked towards the groom out of focus in the background. Actually I should have done this with a different lens, and it would have been even better, but I really liked the results. I will post some shots below, these are special because I’m not going to put them all up in my gallery, without context it would look like a bunch of pictures of the same thing.
