Local Photographer Carmen Coblentz was just awarded the KNOT bridal magazine’s 2010 Brides Choice Award for Photography. Last summer after looking at several buildings around town, Carmen and Caleb decided on my listing on Spring St. as the perfect location for their photography studio and home. The lovely Victorian needed lots of TLC but with Carmen’s artistic eye it was soon transformed into a lovely modern studio with all of its former Charleston charm. Carmen Ash Photography owner and president Carmen Ash Coblentz considers photography as an art. The colors, the composition, the figures, the emotion and the elements create an amazing image that then come together to tell the story. When Carmen is not traveling to country photographing weddings she can be found in her studio on Spring St. in Elliotborough in Charleston S.C., Carmen Ash Photography is experienced in a wide variety of settings from weddings to family events to portraits.
