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 :)

Many brides ask me what happens on a typical bridal shoot if they wanted to have some photographs taken of them in their wedding dress. Well this post is not about the TYPICAL bridal shoot at all! The photographs taken for an ad in Charleston Wedding Magazine were going to feature a local model living here in Charleston. This shoot required a lot of planning, and it really showcases the efforts of many different local artists.

Hillary Fisher, a successful print model from Charleston, was a real pleasure to work with on this commercial shoot. Much of the time as a photographer I am having to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera while I juggle all of the technical acrobats that come with creating a stunning image. If someone does not feel comfortable in front of the camera then you are going to be hard pressed to knock out a great looking image. Being able to work with Hillary made my job that much easier because I could pretty much let her do her thing which allowed me to really focus on the details of the image. Makeup was provided by Lisa Burson from Charleston Makeup Design who is one of the best wedding makeup artist here in charleston. The dresses were provided by WHITE located out on Daniel Island. The flower arrangement was made especially for this shoot by Thuy Patterson with Jade Water Designs. Thuy is one of the most amazing florists I’ve worked with in Charleston; if you are looking for wedding flowers definitely set up an appointment to meet her! The location for this shoot was the magnificent William Aiken House located on King Street and Ann Street. Even if you are just visiting Charleston, you have to stop by this historic mansion. Each room is completely different and they host some of the most upscale weddings I’ve seen.

When shooting something of this scale, you really are aiming only for one perfect image. Most of the time when I work with a bride, the goal is to take a variety of images in different locations and with different expressions. Those types of shoots are always fun because you are trying to be creative throughout the whole process as you move place to place. This shoot, while enjoyable in its own way, really required a lot of fine tuning and therefore moved at a much slower pace. When I knew we took the perfect image, Hillary decided to try something more along the lines of bridal fashion. Since she had a small destination wedding of her own and very few photos, I thought it would be cool to work with her to create something really unique that very few brides would ever try themselves. I hope you enjoy the final photograph used for the wedding ad as well as some of the more artistic images we created after the main shoot.
