Welcome

meet the photographer

We believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.

The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced us to put our camera phone down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around us. Whenever we pick up my camera, we strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.

Our process begins with a conversation. We want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y’all got engaged.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with us and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way! 

wedding ADVICE

We’re big fans of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. We normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

engagement SESSION

view next —

We check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While we normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have questions during the planning process!

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

the BIG DAY

view next —

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

We hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. We want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, we'd love to document your growing family.

Kind words from past clients

Charleston City Hall

One of our favorite spots in downtown, Charleston City Hall lends an elegant backdrop for modern engagement photos.

The Battery

Filled with the salt air and views of the most gorgeous historic homes lining the coast, the battery is another amazing stop that's unique to Charleston.

Historic Downtown

One of our favorite spots, downtown Charleston holds some of the most charming, historic backdrops to capture the sweet moments in your story.

Modern & Clean

For couples looking for simple backdrop to showcase modern, statement shots, we recommend white buildings with dramatic architecture,

The Beach

A classic, we love to head down to the beach whether it's Folly, Sullivan's or Kiawah to capture those laid back love stories.

Although Charleston is home, we're up for any adventure and would love to capture your story wherever it takes you. We loved this Malibu beach sunrise session.

Destination

It wouldn't be the lowcountry without some sprawling live oaks. With tree lined raods for miles, this is a can't miss romantic location.

The best engagement session locations are often meaningful to our individual couples; however, we’re also happy to make recommendations. From ski slopes to lavender fields to apple picking and college campuses, the options for session locations are endless!

All of our sessions include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how we pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why we’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, we’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.


Sessions

engagement

We’re big believers that images aren’t meant to solely exist in a digital space. One day, most likely, Instagram will be gone, your phone will be replaced and images that you can physically hold in your hand will be the best way to remember those precious moments we captured.

Think about this fact: fifteen years ago, if we had delivered you digital images, they would have been on a floppy disk. With the fast updates to technology, you would have no way to access those images today. Even the online galleries we deliver will eventually fade away.

One of the best ways to make your memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents' wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on a coffee table.



THE PERFECT WAY TO REMEMBER this season

albums

handcrafted

After we deliver your gallery, we'll work with you to order prints and design an album that will become an heirloom for your family. 

Albums must be prepaid before design begins and typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete (including revisions). 

With the exception of printing errors, all albums are non-returnable. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day. The holiday deadline for beginning an order is November 1st.

Linen: $450 each for Linen
Leather: $650 each
Additional 2-page Spread: $40 each

(8.5x8.5, 20 pages) 

DUPLICATE ALBUMS

Linen: $650 for Linen
Leather: $850
Additional 2-page Spread: $50

20 page 10x10 album


PRICING

Albums are available a la carte or as part of your portrait collection.

Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, we’ll need a completed contract and a 20% non-refundable deposit. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let us know and we’ll send one over! The remaining balance will be due on the wedding day.

We love your work and want to book. What's the next step? 

Galleries typically include anywhere between 400 and 800 photos. The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fully edited high resolution images you can print anywhere. You’re also welcome to share your wedding photos on Facebook and Instagram as long as you credit us and link to our website.

How many photos are typically included and can we print the photos ourselves?

We typically add travel fees on to any wedding outside of a 60 mile radius from our home in Charleston, South Carolina. Fees vary depending on location so ask us for more details.

When do you charge travel fees? 

Next question —

Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format. 

When will we receive our photos?
