What you'll do

Guests will meet Liz Duren in a Washington Square Park in the heart of the Historic District and be led on a 90-minute tour of the French Quarter, the infamous South of Broad neighborhood, and the Battery. Along the way, we will pause for portrait photography among beautiful backgrounds with cobbled stones, ironwork, window boxes, and more.
After the tour, Liz will carefully edit your photographs and email a link to a gallery of your images. Photos are available as digital downloads for 14.95 each. You may also buy them all for a deep discount of $135... most galleries have 20-40 images to choose from.

Other things to note
We walk about one and a half miles at a slow pace. In the summer we dash from shade to shade to stay cool so don't worry about the heat! This tour is NOT recommended for young children.

Why not get a photoshoot during your walking tour!!
I was born in Charleston SC to a family whose ancestors arrived in 1690. I spent my entire life entrenched in the history and majesty of this charming city. After 14 years as an award-winning wedding and portrait photographer, I decided to combine the two things I loved the most, history and portrait photography. I received my Tour Guide License from The City Of Charleston Office of Tourism Management in 2003. My walking tour of Charleston will lead you on a tour of the Historic District with stops along the way for beautiful portrait photography, carefully and thoughtfully edited of YOU.

Where you'll be

Liz carefully considers her route through Charleston to find the perfect backgrounds with the perfect lighting for her portrait experience of Charleston. She also passes by her family's ancestral homes and shares personal history and connections to the city. The walk begins in Washington Square Park wanders down Chalmers and Church Streets strolls across the battery and returns to Meeting Street, basically walking in a big square!

Liz was an amazing tour guide, she really knows her city! Her pictures were an added bonus, we didn’t have to worry about pulling our cameras out and got to just enjoy the moment. The photos were phenomenal!

A perfect experience to learn & capture memories! Liz was very mindful of time, had good pacing and lightning fast turnaround of the photos. We appreciated learning some interesting history facts while also being able to take home something “tangible”. Liz is also a very talented photographer the images were well constructed and she is stellar at providing direction on poses. Extra credit for being able to tackle unsavory historical topics like an adult, without needing to be overly blunt but also not overly comical. We definitely recommend and will reach out to Liz FIRST for any future photo needs in Charleston!

My boyfriend and I took Liz’s tour as a part of our day trip to Charleston. We both enjoyed the mixture of history and pictures. Liz definitely knows her history and is a great photographer, her cues on posing were very appreciated!

What to bring

If you bring one bag that you don't mind putting on the ground when we take pics, that's a great idea and it can hold purses and cell phones and sunglasses and maybe a water bottle. That way you "travel light" but have everything you need right on hand.
