navigating your downtown charleston photoshoot

Welcome to Charleston, South Carolina, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Known for its historic charm, this beautiful city brings a new perspective to the bustling urban life while still maintaining its costal southern appeal. With its colonial architecture, cobblestone streets, and array of vegetation, it can be a difficult task to navigate the peninsula's eight square miles for your next photoshoot... and that's where I'm here to help.

let's begin at

hampton park

This beautiful park is located at 30 Mary Murray Drive, nestled in between Rutledge Avenue and the Citadel. It offers lush floral displays, a pond, gazebo, and many hidden pathways tucked underneath spanish moss, given to us by the many live oak trees dating centuries of years old.

now drive to the

mills house

A hotel created for those who dream in pink. Located on the corner of Queen Street and Meeting Street, it's just a quick walk away from Waterfront Park and offers a central location for your next Charleston vacation.

walk next door to

hibernian hall

Located at 105 Meeting Street, this wedding venue offers a stunning backdrop to your next photoshoot. Just steps away from Mills House Hotel, you get a peek of pink to your right while simultaneously having the compliments of checkerboard floors, grand white columns, iron finishings, and wooden door.

turn around to see

chalmers street

Before you cross the street onto Chalmers, take a look down Meeting Street to see Saint Michael's Church, just one of the many historic churches that add beauty to our Holy City. Once across Meeting, you step foot onto cobblestone streets, and see the wide variety of architecture from homes built in the 17th century.

take a stroll down

church & queen street

Take your next left to see St. Philip's Church sitting proudly in view. Just one block later you will be on the corner of Queen Street. It's here where you will find Dock Street Theatre's contribution to the colors of Charleston with its teal blue doors and window frames. It's then you take a right on Queen Street to see more pops of color in the hidden gem of Philidelphia Alley.

head down queen street to

waterfront park

Step foot onto the pier and swing on one of the benches overlooking the water. Then, keep to your right and you'll find the infamous Pineapple Fountain. Just behind it are brick pathways surrounded by trees and benches, creating a great depth of field for your next photoshoot.

keep walking south towards

prioleau street

As you walk south along the water, you will come across a few noteworthy streets to detour on your way to Rainbow Row. It's here that you will see more cobblestone and glamorous window boxes.

at your next dead end take a right to find

rainbow row

A rainbow of pastels as far as the eye can see, one of Charleston's famous and most photographed locations on the peninsula. Just cross the street at East Bay, and pick your favorite color! You will also find a beautiful alleyway about half way down called Longitude Lane.

keep walking south along the water to

the battery

Last but not least you will find Battery Park located at the end of the peninsula. It's here you will find the gazebo, lamp posts, and historic landmarks encapsulated underneath live oaks and palm trees.
