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.

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!

Stop Contemplating and Book NOW!!! Liz is such an Amazing story teller, and you can feel her passion for the history in Charleston! But to make it even more special, she adds her talent of photography into the mix! It’s quite a unique experience compared to a normal “walking tour”. It made it so much more fun and engaging. Liz took the time to learn our names and by the end of the tour, she was setting us up on the most romantic poses! These pictures will make the most amazing memories for us! I can’t thank Liz enough for capturing our first time in Charleston! Do yourself a favor and book!

We had a great tour and photoshoot with Liz. We were taken through some of the most beautiful streets and alleyways in the historic part of the city, and she had commentary to tell us about the areas we were walking through, in addition to suggestions on how and where to pose for great photos. She has a great personality and makes the tour exciting! The photo gallery she sends within a couple of hours after the tour is easy to use. If you're looking for an affordable way to get a tour upon arrival to Charleston, plus a photoshoot with cute, authentically historic backdrops, don't hesitate to book this!

Things to know

Guest requirements

All participants must wear a protective face covering and practice social distancing.

What to bring

If you bring one bag that you don't mind putting on the ground when we take pics, that's a great idea and it can hold purses and cell phones and sunglasses and maybe a water bottle. That way you "travel light" but have everything you need right on hand.
