Chelsea & David’s Engagement Session at Oldfield Plantation

Last Weekend, I met up with Chelsea and David at the Oldfield Plantation for their e-session. Oldfield is a picture perfect location with trails lined with live oak, rustic buildings and docks overlooking the marshes. Their session was unique because it was casual and candid and they found ways to incorporate a few of David’s favorite sports into it. Chelsea later explained that David actually proposed to her on a fishing dock at his family’s lake house, so the couple thought it would make their session more personal with a few fishing photos. They enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors and Oldfield definitely offers that. Chelsea later described how David proposed, “The sun was setting and David ended up catching a fish right before he asked, taking it as a sign of good luck, but, I would’ve said yes even if he didn’t catch one!”

I can’t wait to for this Fall to photograph Chelsea & David’s October wedding. I know its going to be just as amazing as they are!



How did you meet? We met in the Navy two years ago. He’s from Simpsonville, SC and I’m from Grafton, Massachusetts. He’s retired from the military, going to school and I’m finishing my obligation to the Navy.

What made you decide on Oldfield Plantation for your engagement session? What gave you the idea to have a more causal session and to include activities like fishing and golfing? Oldfield is where we are having our ceremony and we wanted to contrast casual with elegant, plus there are so many locations at Oldfield to take pictures, we wouldn’t have time on the wedding day to go to all of the places. We’re a really laid back couple and wanted to take photos doing things we enjoy and again contrast them to the elegance of the wedding day, so not all our pictures are formal.

What do you like most about the Bluffton area? What are some of your favorite places to visit while here? David golfs a lot so he enjoys the diverse golf courses around the  area, and I will hopefully get to enjoy the beaches next time I visit.
We love the Beaufort area, which was going to be our original wedding location but decided on Oldfield instead.
