AWARD-WINNING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Hi, we're Valerie & Ed, and we're a team. Ready for our mushy story? It all started with work. (It's true!) We became friends by shooting weddings together. One rainy wedding, something just clicked and we both realized that we wanted to be a team in life as a whole, not just photography. (Apparently rain really IS good luck!) Now here we are: us and our cameras, living the life of our dreams. (Thank you for being a part of our story. Now let us tell yours!)
 
We've been reviewed among Charleston's Top Wedding Photographers, and we couldn't be more honored. Charleston is absolutely the most beautiful city to work in. The colors, textures and deep history of Charleston, South Carolina blend perfectly with our artistic photography styles. We are a full-service studio providing family portraits, headshots as well as full-day wedding coverage! We also photograph proposals, bridals, and engagements. (We want each of our clients to feel spoiled, and you're next!) We love meeting unique people. Your stories bring joy to our hearts. We are always laughing, so get ready to have fun.

Our philosophy

It's all about noticing the little things. Those tiny in between moments that make each of our lives such a special, unique journey. The first time he said "I love you". The way a baby's laugh is the happiest, most contagious noise. When we love so deeply that there are no words that can truly describe how we feel. 

Telling your story with our cameras isn't just about lenses and saying "cheese"...it's about capturing the essence of who you are in the purest form. Photos you can look back on and feel those moments all over again. Our most sincere desire as photographers is to capture your relationships, weddings, families, children and headshots in the most real, genuine way and have fun in the process!
