Oh the romance and southern charm of an Old Wide Awake Plantation Wedding here in Charleston. Sarah and Ethan chose this incredible venue to host their outdoor ceremony and reception. I first met Sarah when she inquired about my husband’s live wedding paintings. (Check out his work here!) I had just launched Jen Keys Photography […]

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist has always been a dream to photograph as a Charleston wedding photographer. Standing at the front of the altar with camera in hand, it was all I could do to fight back (happy) tears. All I could think about as Harriet walked down the aisle was how powerful […]

Erica and Ben’s Winter Pawleys Island wedding at Litchfield Country Club was one for the southern charm books!  I say Winter, because, well … the forecast was ONE HUNDRED percent rain! And also paired with a high in the low 60s …with up to 60 mile an hour wind gusts!  My drive up to Pawleys […]

As a Charleston Wedding Photographer, there’s nothing like a Charleston Wedding at Cannon Green.  It’s charming, historic Charleston meets South Beach Miami vibes are so unique, nestled downtown Charleston.  Britany and Chris chose this incredible venue as their backdrop for their ceremony and reception.  Last spring, I met Britany and Chris for their engagement session […]

Britt and Mike’s blue and  white Nantucket inspired Charleston Wedding at the Pavilion at Patriots Point was one for the books!  Britt never stopped smiling the entire day despite it raining all day.   It didn’t just sprinkle, it down poured the entire day.  But they didn’t let the rain rain on their celebration! Always have […]

If you’re planning a smaller Charleston wedding, Magnolia Plantation’s Conservatory is worth considering!  I was so excited to Second Shoot for Kaitlin Mendoza Photography for the first time and photograph Dana and Corey’s wedding.  Kaitlin has since moved back to Indiana but would you believe we used to live in the same neighborhood!  It’s such […]

There’s nothing like a spring Charleston wedding at The Gadsden House!  Madison and Brian call Ohio home, but wanted to getaway and celebrate their wedding day in a warmer destination.  From my first phone call with Madison and her sweet mom, Michelle, these two felt like friends.  Kindred spirits, indeed!  Needless to say, I was […]

Catherine and Mac chose Creek Club I’On for their Charleston Wedding.  Nestled in the heart of Mount Pleasant, the creekside breeze under the Live Oak trees was the absolute perfect setting for their Spring wedding ceremony and reception! I’ll never forget my first phone call with Catherine: she felt like a friend within seconds.  Fast […]

My southern soul loves everything about a Kaminski House Museum wedding reception in Georgetown!  This was my second time photographing in the area and I fell in love with the southern charm of the Kaminski House property.  Located in the heart of downtown Georgetown, the lawn is perfect for a tented reception that overlooks the […]

This Charleston Wedding Photographer took on her first full wedding at the gorgeous Windy Hill Barn in the Upstate of SC.  It has been my dream to photograph weddings.  And there’s a good chance that I won’t make it through typing this blog post without tears of joy.  It’s been a long journey and a […]
