Why not get a photoshoot during your walking tour!!
I was born in Charleston SC to a family whose ancestors arrived in 1690. I spent my entire life entrenched in the history and majesty of this charming city. After 14 years as an award-winning wedding and portrait photographer, I decided to combine the two things I loved the most, history and portrait photography. I received my Tour Guide License from The City Of Charleston Office of Tourism Management in 2003. My walking tour of Charleston will lead you on a tour of the Historic District with stops along the way for beautiful portrait photography, carefully and thoughtfully edited of YOU.

Where you'll be

Liz carefully considers her route through Charleston to find the perfect backgrounds with the perfect lighting for her portrait experience of Charleston. She also passes by her family's ancestral homes and shares personal history and connections to the city. The walk begins in Washington Square Park wanders down Chalmers and Church Streets strolls across the battery and returns to Meeting Street, basically walking in a big square!

Rated 4.96 out of 5 from 270 reviews.

Great Tour! Liz is an amazing historian of Charleston and told us soo many amazing stories about the history of the city that we would never have learned otherwise. We loved the photos she took and ended up purchasing 5 of them. Highly recommend.
