Old South Studios bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    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!

I have never been more proud to post a video on my blog.

This story is one I have not shared publicly but felt it was time.  It is so real, so raw and so personal, I hesitated making this video for a few years.

The reason I became a wedding photographer is probably NOT what you might think.  Watch this video about how a devastating house fire in my teens would later shape my entire life.

To GOD be the glory. ALWAYS.

Amazing film by Whitewash Films (seriously, if they give out Academy Awards for promo videos…they deserve one!)

**warning: your mascara WILL run!!**

 

The hours leading up to the ceremony are always filled with nervous anticipation.  But as soon as those vows are said, you can FEEL all that anxiety subside and joy rightfully takes it’s place.  The images of a newly married couple coming back down the aisle are some of my very favorites.  Just look at the love and happiness written all over the faces of Lauren and Robert.  I’m telling you, what we capture is truly so beautiful on every level!

Enjoy Part 2 of this lovely SC wedding.  The new Mr. and Mrs. Skinner had the time of their lives on 6.23.18.  We are so grateful they chose us to tell their story.

Lauren and Robert are such a great match.  Truly.  They are both so upbeat, kind, caring and happy. Who knew swiping right on Tinder could lead to finding “the one”?

June 23, 2018 was everything this sweet couple dreamed it would be.  Carolina blue skies, loads of happy friends and family and of course, the love they share.  It is is so effortless, so natural and SO REAL. You can just feel the love they share in the way they look at one another.

How precious is Robert’s face when Lauren walks down the aisle? Or how emotional her Dad became when he first saw his little girl dressed all in white?

These are the moments, y’all.  Enjoy Part 1 of Lauren and Robert’s SC wedding.  It was lovely from beginning to end (Part 2 coming Monday!)

Oh what a night!! That was truly the phrase every party-goer used regarding Caroline and Rawson’s 6.22.18 wedding at Quail Hollow Club.

Stealing the couple away for a few sunset images was by far my favorite moment of the night.  That sky was a brilliant purple and I’m so glad we took a few minutes to chase down that gorgeous sky on their first night as Mr. and Mrs. Daws!

The music by Sol Fusion kept the dance floor full ALL NIGHT LONG plus a surprise appearance by Freddie the Falcon put this party at legendary status! The couple lives in Atlanta so having their favorite team’s mascot as part of the wedding night was such a thrill.  The fabulous ladies at Hall and Webb Events arranged for late night burgers from Shake Shack to be passed mid-party plus sent guests home with freshly cooked donuts.  Who could ask for a better party??

Enjoy Part 2 of “Sweet Caroline” and Rawson’s big day.  We loved capturing every sweet minute!
