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!

If you happen to love flowers, I highly suggest you take a nice comfortable seat for the blog post ahead.  This was, quite possibly, THE most beautiful wedding our lenses have ever captured.  Coral peonies dripped from every doorway, nook and cranny and the design plan by Hall and Webb Event Design came to life in the most spectacular way! John Lupton Events, Crush Event Design, Eye Dialogue, Party Tables, and Party Reflections transformed Quail Hollow Club into a tropical, colorful wedding fairytale!

It is always quite an honor when a family trusts Old South to capture not one, but two, of their children’s weddings.  Caroline is a twin and we were thrilled to capture BOTH her wedding as well as William and Ellyn’s wedding in 2017. Repeat families like the Teddys make our jobs so very personal and rewarding.  6.22.18 was nothing short of wonderful!

Take a peek below at Part 1 of Caroline and Rawson’s Quail Hollow Club wedding.  Tearful moments, joyful moments and a gospel choir that gave all of us chills.  Those high notes that Sol Fusion hit while singing “How Great Thou Art” during the ceremony brought many of us to tears (we photographers choose to plead the fifth!).

The party was a wild one but we will save that Part 2.  Enjoy the beginning of the best day of Caroline and Rawson’s life together!

Is Lauren one gorgeous bride or what??  She saw a bridal portrait session I did last year at this stunning location and knew she wanted her own portraits taken here.  Champagne Manor has that European castle feel with a lovely lake behind it.  Add in a beautiful blonde in a stunning gown and what is not to love?

Enjoy some of my favorites from her bridal session back in May.  We adored their 6.23.18 wedding day just as much!  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Skinner! Enjoy St. Lucia!

Talk about a southern girl’s dream wedding! The Duke Mansion is a historic bed/breakfast just a few miles from uptown Charlotte.  Dozens of guests can stay on property and all of the wedding festivities can be hosted in one beautiful location.

Allie and Ethan had a garden wedding (complete with a string quartet!) and guests enjoyed the shade of the umbrellas during their June ceremony.  Champagne was passed just after the new Mr. and Mrs. Miller were announced and guests mingled around the property and porches for cocktail hour.

We had already done about 90% of all portraits pre-ceremony thanks to a first look so we only needed the newlyweds for a quick 20 minutes afterwards.  Then, they joined their bridal party upstairs for some light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails privately. Once the band was set up, introductions were made and the reception was underway!

Some of the big highlights of the day were seeing Allie’s Dad pass out dozens of Alabama pom poms for the crowd to use as the band belted out “Sweet Home Alabama”.  Seriously, the crowd went wild! And, I have seen A LOT of wedding bands but nothing…and I mean nothing!…compares to the last 15 minute montage of songs by The Royal Suits.  From “Scrubs” to “California” to “Jump Around”, everyone was on the dance floor giving it all they had before the sparkler exit.  I will never forget the amount of energy that filled the Duke Mansion this night! We had the time of our lives!

To the new Mr. and Mrs. Miller (and your adorable families), thank you for choosing Old South.  Your trust in us means so much and I hope you love the images just as much as we do.  We promise to remember your anniversary for every 6.9 date to come.  Congratulations!!
