Hi, I'm Jen.

A Day in the Life of a Charleston Branding Photographer

Dec 22, 2020

As a photographer, one of the many hats I wear is a Charleston Branding Photographer!  When I’m not photographing weddings, I’m likely photographing for some of my favorite local businesses here in Charleston.

Branding Photography is the reason I decided to learn photography.

It feels like forever ago that I launched Made on Marlow, my own product line of cocktail napkins.  I embroidered each napkin with custom designs including monograms and phrases.  As I was building out the website, I knew that it would be critical to have professional photos to add value to this already bespoke collection.  Basically, I needed the photos to do the selling!

So I called one of  my best friends, who is also a Charleston Wedding Photographer and asked her to teach me how to use the manual settings of my camera.  The next thing I knew … Brides magazine and Charleston Weddings Magazine was featuring my Branding images of Made on Marlow on both social media and in the magazines!

It’s the truth.  I L.O.V.E brand photography.  Sometimes it feels impossible to set my camera down, even at home.  I start photographing life around me, and love styling products and my favorite brands.  My husband and I are fans of the local House of Brews that just opened here in West Ashley.  I began this weird challenge that I would photograph my favorite craft beers before drinking them at home.  It’s turned into this really fun creative outlet and the reward is of course the images … and enjoying the beer!

Westbrook Brewery will always hold a sweet place in my heart.

It only makes sense that I started with my fav seasonal IPA from Westbrook Brewing Company!  This shoot happened so spontaneously, as I was pulling out Christmas ornaments.  I’ll be honest, it’s 2020, and I started pulling them out the day before Thanksgiving!  I grabbed the throw nearby, gathered my favorite ornaments, and immediately saw the beer can surrounded in all the festive fun.  I had so much fun sharing these on social media and my day was pretty much made when Westbrook AND House of Brews reposted my images!  Here’s how the shoot came together:
