Engagement on Palmetto Trail – Jenna & Kelly

October 6, 2016

Even though I’m a SC wedding photographer, and SC is full of beautiful countryside, it’s more difficult than one might think to find a rustic location for an engagement session. Often, a bride or groom’s family or friends have land or access to land where I can photograph their engagement session. When they don’t, there’s one place I always recommend, and it’s the Alston Trailhead and Peak Trestle Bridge about 30 minutes outside of Columbia, SC.  It’s rustic, alright: it’s literally just a spot in the middle of nowhere, at the end of the Peak to Prosperity Passage of the Palmetto Trail.

In my years as a wedding photographer, I have come to this location many times, and I find something new I love about it each and every time! engagement session palmetto trail peak trestle bridge newberry sc columbia sc wedding photography

When Jena and I spoke on the phone about hers and Kelly’s engagement session, and she mentioned bringing their sweet boxer and wanting an outdoor location, the Peak Trestle Bridge was the first thing that came to mind! We had a great time laughing, trying to get Ellie (the pup) to cooperate, and exploring the 1100 foot long trestle bridge that crosses the Broad River. Enjoy!

Beautiful location!! You make it look even better, Melissa. The whole area around lil ole Peak is photogenic, but the trail is definitely the place to go. Cute couple! Congrats!
