So a year or so ago, I was traveling to Jamaica and while in the Norman Manley International Airport terminal in Kingston, waiting to clear customs and passport control; I randomly met an amazing young lady. She was a flight attendant with a great personality. After a little small talk, and learning about her love for fashion and that she designed her own outfits, I gave her one of my cards and suggested that if she ever had an extended stay in Charleston, that she should give me a call.

So today we met by none other than the iconic Pineapple Fountain (what better place to welcome someone). Phee was wearing a personally handmade, pastel blue skirt which provided for an awesome contrast against the historical Charleston backdrop.


We walked the streets of the Historic French Quarter and I shared just a tiny snippet of Charleston’s rich history. We strolled a few places such as the Old Exchange, The Customs House, and then we went down Market Street and told of its history.

But of course… when you are in a beautiful city, with beautiful light, and a beautiful subject… you can’t help but to capture a few shots!


Live, Laugh, Travel.

Live, Laugh, Travel.


Even though it was only a couple of hours, I hope Phee enjoyed Charleston enough to come again, and I hope she loves the images captured!

Have you ever thought about hiring a photographer for your traveling escapades?

Leighton DaCosta

Hello, I'm Leighton and I help people around the world tell their story. Let me introduce myself. Whether it's for online dating, or a professional profile, it always seems that the "About Me" section is always the hardest to write. Not because you have nothing to say about yourself, but because you want to be sincere, genuine, interesting, and brief all at the same time. I have never been a fan of writing about me in the third person, like: "Leighton DaCosta, was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and moved to Brooklyn, NY at an early age when his parents wanted to form a new life for themselves and their children. In the third grade, the family moved to Orlando, Fl, where Leighton considers his home town. After spending 3 tours in the Navy, he settled in Jacksonville, and now Miramar, Florida, where he now calls home. Today, still wanted by many, he does work as a fashion and wedding photographer. If you have a wedding(or photo shoot)... if no one else can help... and if you can find him... maybe you can hire... ok.. this is not The A- Team." But you see what I mean? What do you know about me? How can we connect? Did you know that my FAVORITE food is Pizza and Sushi? Or that my favorite color is Purple? When I go to the wine bars, I usually order Mimosas, because even the cheapest champagne tastes great with some good ole OJ. When I travel, I like staying in nice hotels. Not because of the name, (even though I AM partial to Hyatt) but because of the bathrooms. One of my favorite hotels is the Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. Small rooms, but AWESOME bathrooms. I LOVE TO EAT, and eating as much as I have, has led me to be about 100 pounds more than I was in High School... Yeah there is some muscle there, but if it was all muscle, I'm sorry folks, I wouldn't be taking photos, I would be retiring from the NFL. If you want to see some of my favorite dishes, follow me on Instagram. Because of that, I find myself now in the gym more than ever. Trying to stay fit and alive... I workout, so I can EAT! Well that's enough for now, if you want to know more about me, follow my blog. Better yet, I want to find out more about YOU. So let's talk!
