I love that bokeh from the sunset through the trees - Mansfield Plantation, Georgetown

Sunset engagement pictures at Mansfield Plantation, Georgetown SC

My recent couple was looking for a plantation type setting for their engagement pictures with a lot of moss and old oak trees. They got a nice quick response from calling Mansfield Plantation in Georgetown. There was a reasonable $160 charge to do engagement pictures on the plantation grounds so they decided to do the …

Engagement pictures at the Georgetown Harbor Walk and new Retina display support for pictures

This is my second blog post to fully support the iPad with Retina display. Sadly, the images for all my older posts are not high enough resolution to support a high dpi display like the Retina iPad without having to upload everything again. Most people that use the 3rd or 4th generation iPad probably don’t understand how it supports image viewing on the web, they just know that sometimes pictures look really fantastic on it.  In fact very few websites actually fully support it.  Basically what happens now on my blog, if it detects a retina display, it will serve up a double resolution image.  For example, on a normal display you will see a 1250px wide image, on an iPad Retina you will get a 2500px wide image, however the image will still fit the same space on the screen, it will be the same relative size as on any other display.  The pixels are just more densely packed together so the image will look extra sharp and clear.  I actually haven’t seen any other wedding photographers online that support the retina displays on their websites. If you have good eyesight and you look closely, you will notice how much clearer the images in this post look compared to most websites.

Anyway, enough about that. This was a great session I had with this couple at the Georgetown Harbor Walk. They saw pictures of the last couple I photographed at this spot and they wanted to do something similar.  The sun had changed position a bit so I had to change some angles from what I did last time. I think everything turned out really nice, let me know in the comments below if you enjoy the pictures!

Sunset engagement pictures at the historic waterfront in Georgetown, SC

This was the first time I’ve done any engagement portraits at the historic waterfront area of Georgetown. I think it’s just the distance and the fact that most people are more interested in the beach that I haven’t made it over that way. I personally do so much at the beach I always like when I get to do something different.

The historic Georgetown waterfront area is going to give you a similar look to doing engagement pictures at the Conway River Walk. You still have a lot of trees, historic looking shops, and a boardwalk on the water. The main thing you don’t have at Georgetown that you have in Conway is the train tracks that can make for some really cool pictures.  Otherwise there are a lot of things I like better in Georgetown. At least for this time of the year there was a really nice sunset going down over the water, all the boats at the marina make for a nice background, and the shops are better for walking around and doing pictures.  Be sure to let me know if you enjoy the pictures below, and if a couple wants to try out Historic Georgetown for their engagement pictures let me know.
