Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site

Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Charleston, there's the old-world allure of the architectural ruins and scenic beauty at the Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site. It's a perfect location to boost your charming Charleston engagement photography!

Sitting along the Ashley River, near the town of Summerville in Dorchester County, Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site is a lovely place to create some amazing vintage backdrops for your photos. Currently, the site of a 325-acre park offers you a glimpse into South Carolina's colonial past. The park boasts one of the most well-preserved oyster-shell tabby forts in the country, St. George's Bell Tower, log shipping wharves, burial sites, and cemeteries and that provide a number of opportunities for a unique engagement shoot.

Whatever spot you choose, you are sure to be wowed by the lush and historic landscape surrounding the area. You might even choose to take the majority of your photos outside in nature when you will see the bright green lawn, towering trees, and the wonderful woodland. Our Charleston engagement photographers adore this site. We cannot get enough of it!

In addition to taking photos throughout the grounds and with the living historic ruins, we love capturing precious moments between the couples on the stone walls and under arched trees.

Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site is a couple’s dream for engagement photos! You will love having your portraits amongst the breathtaking beauty of this unforgettable vintage location.
