Old South Studios bio picture

    We are a team of professional wedding photographers solely devoted to "happily ever afters". Our commercial studio is based in Charlotte, NC and we capture weddings in the Carolinas and beyond. We believe in family, love and the power of storytelling through our photography. The ladies of Old South would love to capture your big day!

Sweet, beautiful Jen.

Today I captured you becoming Mrs. Adam Younger. Now, I can f..i..n..a..l..l..y share the gorgeous bridal portraits we captured back in March.

From hiding behind a tree in March 2016 at the Biltmore to capture your surprise proposal, to the engagement session, to this bridal portrait session and ultimately wedding weekend….I have adored getting to know you (and your amazing family!)

You are LIGHT. Always happy, always smiling, always thrilled to become his wife.

You have been a delight.  Here are a few of my favorites from our day together at the Duke Mansion.  Gorgeous hair/makeup by Sabrina with Be Pretty and bouquet by The Blossom Shop.

Oh this has been so much fun!!

We first moved into this old State Farm agency back in 2013.  We painted, installed hard woods and added some furniture but not too much has changed since.  However, as our team has grown over the years and even our logo has evolved, I felt a change was needed.

Just a month ago, I called Neil with Knotty Artisans to ask if he could basically shiplap my studio…literally.  Like Joanna Gaines gone wild!!  I wanted to transform our already lovely photography studio into a better visual representation of our brand.  PLUS, when the 2017 Pantone color of the year was announced as  “Greenery” (exactly the shade in our fabulous logo!), I knew this was the time to make some changes.

So, after lots of planning, sawing, hammering, shopping, etc….it all came together exactly as I had hoped.  It truly feels like walking into a beautiful wedding every day instead of coming to work.  It is the breath of fresh air we were hoping for!

Stages 1 and 2 of the redesign are completed but we have a few things in mind for Stage 3 (my office…which needs help!!) You will also notice we have set aside our studio as clean space for more classroom style learning.  We are ready to launch some big plans and feel we have exactly the space we need to do so.

I hope you will stop by our new and improved studio soon.  We are located in the Hunter’s Crossing Shopping Center in Ballantyne just down Johnston Rd. from the Ballantyne Hotel and Ballantyne Country Club.

The welcome mat is always out for our industry friends and of course, our Old South brides! Y’all stop by soon, k?

It was early November 2016.

Alissa and Stuart were knee deep in wedding planning and were referred to Old South by our good friends at Split Second Sound.  When the bride has already booked the DJ before the photography team, we KNOW she is planning one rocking party!!  Dana was the perfect lead photographer for this fun crowd.  From the bridal suite to the dance floor, the fun never stopped on March 25, 2017 and the pictures absolutely reflect that upbeat energy.

I LOVE the sparkle of the chandeliers in Piper Glen’s ballroom mixed with the crystal and gold decor of the day.  Those bouquets were the finishing touch to pull together one very glam wedding look.

I always joke that a bride’s stress level on wedding day is directly tied to the level of professionalism of her vendor team.  Alissa did her homework and hired true professionals in every category and it showed.  This bride and groom showed up to have fun (and truly soak in every moment) of their wedding day because they trusted their vendors implicitly. Excellent coordination by When in White….this day was everything and more that the new Mr. and Mrs. Farrow hoped for.

We wish you both a lifetime ahead full of the same JOY you felt on this day.  Thank you again for trusting Old South to tell your story.  (Full vendor list at bottom of post).
