Kinsey Burden was one of the most successful cotton planters in America. Charles Cotesworth Pinckey signed the Constitution of the United States. Jonathan Lucas invented the first steam-powered mill. These people aren’t only important names in history books; they’re members of Liz Duren’s family tree, whose Charleston roots stretch as far back as 1696, when her ancestor Solomon Legare first arrived.
During her approximately two-hour photo walking tours of Charleston, Liz combines her vast knowledge of the city’s history with her passion for photography. As a photojournalist who’s won a Best of Weddings award from The Knot in 2010, Liz is inseparable from her camera, which she totes around as she leads tourists to Charleston’s picturesque landmarks. After her tours, she sends participants a link to an online gallery that has all the shots from the outing.
