Charleston Wedding Photographers: Patrick Hall bio picture

Welcome to the pH Factor~!

Thanks for visiting!

Patrick Hall was born in Charleston, SC and has lived in Alaska, Alabama, and Tennessee.  After graduating from college in 2004, Patrick traveled throughout the southeast before calling Charleston home in 2006.

During the first 2 years in Charleston, Patrick spent most of his time learning how to craft interesting photos with both wedding professionals and lifestyle photographers.  It was during this time the idea to share his newly learned talents with young couples became Patrick's primary goal.

Today Patrick works full time as a commercial wedding photographer in Charleston, SC and enjoys shooting extreme sports, fashion, and commercial images during any freetime he may have left :)

Are you looking for a unique location for your wedding reception that provides a historic, “old world”  feel, as well as a beautiful view of the Charleston Marina?  At the historic Rice Mill building you will not just have a waterfront view; your whole wedding party will have a close-up view of docks, boats, seagulls, egrets and pelicans!  When you wish to take a break from the wining, dining, and dancing at the Rice Mill, you can actually stroll right up to the yachts and mega yachts on the Mega Dock.  The Rice Mill creates an amazing backdrop for your Charleston wedding photography!

The Rice Mill Building is a nationally registered “historic place” that was built in 1861. Over the years it has functioned as a rice mill, a seaplane terminal, and a navy minesweeper base. Later it housed a gourmet restaurant, and after that the interior was extensively remodeled in a grand manner worthy of the only pre-Civil War rice mill still standing in the Charleston area.

What else makes this a perfect setting for your wedding reception?  There is extensive indoor and outdoor space, so you need not fear bad weather spoiling the fun, yet you can revel in good weather and fully enjoy the outdoors. There is a luscious mahogany and marble bar connected to a covered patio; these provide ample room for live music and dancing.  Also, there is a spacious parking lot in front of the Rice Mill building for all of your guests.
