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!

As a mom of 2, I know it’s not right to have favorites among your babies.

Here at Old South, we love ALL the weddings we capture but y’all….there is just something extra magical about winter weddings.  With earlier sunsets, we get to use ALL lighting styles.  Over the course of one wedding day, we will shoot in full sun, dimly lit churches, candlelight reception venues and more.  Getting to use all the tools in our lighting bag of tricks keeps the day challenging and fun for us as artists.  So, while winter weddings are far more challenging than spring/summer weddings, we love the opportunity to rise to the challenge.

Chemin and John had the time of their lives on November 11, 2017.  Alisha and I were the lucky ones who got to capture all the magic of their day.

Erin Padgett Events created a moody, dramatic, candlelit gold and black event that made everyone’s jaw drop! Every detail was just so lovely and classic.

Chemin and John have such an amazing friendship that grounds their love affair.  Above all else, they enjoy spending time together.  Whether its Avett Brothers concerts (they have seen LOTS!) to Netflix nights on the couch, they are truly best friends.  The connection they have is so obvious to everyone who knows them and if you scroll down, I promise you will FEEL it too in the gallery below.

To the new Mr. and Mrs. Dry, we wish you many more candlelit nights filled with romance AND lots of Avett Brothers concerts hand-in-hand!  Thank you both for trusting Old South to tell your story.

How adorable is this couple?  The best part is that they are just as lovely on the inside too.

Our relationship with Patrick and Nikki actually started with Patrick.  It is fairly rare that the groom takes the lead on searching for that “just right” wedding photographer so his first e-mail inquiring with the studio caught my eye.

He works in the events industry so he knew what questions to ask, who to research, etc.  I invited him and Nikki into the studio to meet in person and 10 days later (in July) they booked Old South to capture their wedding.

The only hiccup was….they didn’t have a date or venue quite yet.  Just a gut instinct that we were the right studio to tell their story.  Talk about feeling flattered?? We exchanged texts/e-mails for the next 2 months until they found their dream venue, Whitehead Manor, for a date in November 2018.

Lindsay was the right lead photographer choice for these cuties and I adore their engagement session images below.  A gorgeous October day, an adorable dog, a gorgeous blonde in red??? This was truly the recipe for a great session!

We are so excited to walk this journey towards the aisle next year with this couple.  Less than one year from now, you will be the new Mr. and Mrs. Keaton! We are thrilled to be your team.

We are so grateful for our vendor partners who continue to refer amazing brides our way! The staff at Providence Country Club was so kind to recommend Old South to Allison and Chad back when they toured the club last October (fall brides know quickly these dates fill up in the Carolinas and typically book one year in advance!)

Allison and Chad are some of the kindest people you will ever meet.  They have such warm, inviting personalities and you immediately feel at ease in their presence.  They mentioned at our studio meeting last November that Allison lives/works in Charlotte but Chad was working in Wilkesboro, NC so planning an engagement session might be challenging.  But, Dana (lead Old South photographer)  lives north of Charlotte and attends graduate school in Boone, NC a few days every week so they scheduled a fun, fall 2016 session in Blowing Rock that worked for everyone’s travel/work plans.  Click HERE to see all the fun they had last fall!

Wedding day finally arrived on 11.4.17 and the joy on their faces was simply infectious.  When you find THE ONE, it clearly shows and these 2 are soulmates through and through.  Friends and family enjoyed a beautiful outdoor ceremony and one lively reception at Providence Country Club.  This venue is always so professional and accommodating to our couples, their guests and even our photography team.  They make sure to serve our team a hot meal (which is always delicious!) which means the world to us.  By the time dinner rolls around, our photographers have been hustling for roughly 6 hours.  They work so hard for our couples and hospitality goes a long way on a busy wedding day. I know Allison and Chad felt completely taken care of too which allowed them to truly relax and have the time of their lives!

(Full vendor post is at bottom of post) We want to thank the new Mr. and Mrs. Reeves for trusting us to tell their story.  We just KNOW it is going to be a  great one and we were the lucky ladies who got to illustrate the first chapter!
