Charleston Wedding Photographers

A wedding is a rare thing. All your most important people come to savor being a family (and a growing one at that). Families trust our studio to create images that tell the story of your wedding as well as the deep love & history that has lead to this day.

Our Style

Our images are Epic. Magic. Cinematic. They elevate the beauty of this place. They do credit to the importance of this day.
And our images are Intimate. True. Sincere. They capture the depth of emotion & the joy of your relationships. They are genuine. Unscripted.

Our approach is joyful and gentle. We want to help you experience your day and your people and each other. To be in the moment. To make sweet memories. We want our images to make you remember hilarity & sweetness & love. We won’t pull you out of the moment. We’ll help you stay in it.

We want your story to be unique to who you are, where you’re from, and who you love.  We will listen to you & learn so that your story will be deep and true.

Our Experience

Our studio is recognized all over Charleston, SC and has been for two generations. We were founded by Richard, succeed by Nathan, and joined by a team of talented and thoughtful artists over the years. We have a vision sharpened by decades of experience & service. We have experience at wedding locations all over Charleston. We know our equipment. We know our town. We know your venue. And we want to get to know you.

Our Commitment

You will not worry about your photography. You’ll know that you’ve entrusted this deeply important task to a studio who will take care of everything. You’ll know that your day, your family, your memories will be preserved thoughtfully & expertly in an museum quality album — not forgotten on flash drives and facebook.

Our Calendar

We want to work with people who share our values, and we limit our bookings so we can do excellent work for all our couples. We are currently interviewing for events in 2019 & some remaining dates in 2018.  Get in touch to check availability & set up a call.

Portraits and posed images are an important part of the day — but we make it relaxed, natural and genuine.


Photography of Details, Scenery, and the Wedding Venue

You’re going to put so much time and effort into the decor & look of your wedding. It’s your photographer’s job to do it some justice. We love still life, scenery and detail photography — especially at the stunning wedding venues that we get to shoot at all the time.


Photography of Wedding Rings

We love taking dynamic photos of important details and accouterments, like the wedding rings.

Night & Star Photography

Night time portraits are one of or favorite things to do! Most photographers do not know how to take excellent pictures unless the sun’s out. Once the sun sets, we’re just getting started.
