Wedding Pictures in CharlestonI absolutely loved working at the William Aiken House in Charleston, South Carolina. Having grown up in the south myself I have a soft spot for weddings with a unique southern charm. Every detail was absolutely perfect for the wedding ceremony and tented wedding reception on the grounds of this Charleston venue. As a wedding photographer I am always looking for a unique way to show a scene. I believe that it is important to distinguish myself from other photographers and the way I see the composition of an image is unlike anyone else. While wandering around the grounds of the William Aiken House I was struck by how the buildings behind me were reflected in the windows of the house. When I looked through the window into the cocktail hour area I saw the cake illuminated by an internal light. Juxtaposing the reflection of the buildings behind me with the light on the wedding cake I was able to create a uniquely layered photograph showing both the environment and the cake detail.
