would this be a good spot for an engagement pictures shoot? I am visiting family in the area this summer and would love this kind of scenery.
I think it would be a beautiful spot for any photo. But remember you have to walk about a quarter of a mile to get to the spot so in the heat of a Charleston summer it may be quite hot and it is on the ocean so it will be breezy. Getting equipment, etc there might be difficult unless you have a golf cart. Best wishes.
As a huge fan of lighthouses, I have used several across the Atlantic coast for background of family photo's. We took our family photo there one year vacationing on Folly Beach. It was a hike, and if you do this in Aug - you will sweat. So take extra make-up and hair stuff to do a touch up once you get there. But it is beautiful and would really make your photo's special.
Yes I think so. There is a bit of a walk from the parking to the lighthouse, 1/4 mile maybe. Good luck.
This would be a fabulous place for photos. My daughter had her wedding at this spot and the pictures are fantastic.
Here are a few things to be aware of, though.
- there's no way to know whether or not someone else is doing the same as you on the same day; for the wedding, we arrived early in the morning and planted a sign telling that there was to be a wedding later in the day and posted the sign. Remember- it is a public beach
- beside the humidity, as others have mentioned, keep in mind that dawn & dusk bring out the "no-see-um" bugs- bring bug spray or wipes for you and your guests
- the wagon that the previous contributor suggested is essential. It will be a trek getting it there, so maybe you could recruit someone who will not be in the photos to do that job
All the best to you and your future spouse
That would be so awesome. Are yall used to the heat and humidity? I would suggest if you have a lot of stuff to carry bring a wagon or some kind of hand truck. It would be nice to have some chairs and a cooler with cold drinks in it. It might be difficult to pull a wagon through the sand once you get there but I think you could manage it. There are a few other places that might be easier to get to, Maybe Angel Oak Tree?
