A Photographer’s Guide to Charleston

Where snapping perfect photos is a snap

Charleston is one of the most beloved destinations in the country. It’s incredibly easy on the eyes, too. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your walls with an original photo, or impress your friends on Instagram, here are three Charleston spots where snapping a gorgeous shot comes easily.

Rainbow Row

Even if you’re not taking photos, it’s nearly impossible to not smile when walking past this stretch of positively pretty, candy-colored homes. It’s one of the most photographed spots in the Holy City, and for good reason.

The Battery

Like Rainbow Row, this this prominent landmark is situated in the heart of Charleston’s historic district. It offers sparkling views of both the harbor and Fort Sumter, and is perfect for a leisurely, picturesque stroll with its arched trees and charming buildings.

Sunset Cay Marina

Perched on the back side of Folly Beach, this marina gets its name for its brilliant sunset views  – which are the result of it being unobstructed by any major developments. If you’re really lucky, you might even spot some dolphins splashing around.
