Brooke & Mike | Breezy Engagement Session in Charleston

I just love the simplicity and ease of Brooke and Mike’s engagement session near their home in Charleston. Photos by the talented Odalys Mendez.

From photographer Odalys Mendez, “Brooke grew up in Ana Maria Island, Florida, where her days revolved around the sea. When they heard they were relocating to Charleston because of a work opportunity, Brooke and Mike knew they wanted to be as close to the water as possible, and chose a yacht as their home. I wanted these images to be a wonderful memory of their simple, carefree lifestyle in the Charleston marina. Their love is so easy and warm.”

Brooke and Mike will exchange vows in a laid-back, beach-front ceremony in Brooke’s hometown of Ana Maria Island, Florida in April.


Thank you to Odalys Mendez for sharing these beautiful photos!
