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!

Sorry for the delay in posting Part 2 of Erin and Taylor’s big day but I decided to take my birthday week off (woo hoo!!) with a trip to see family in Atlanta…including this sweet couple!

Erin and Taylor truly had the wedding day fairytale!

6.10.17 was truly THE BEST DAY of their lives and I was thrilled to capture every minute of it for them.

So much of a couple’s enjoyment of their wedding day depends on the professionalism of their vendor team.  From start to finish, this wedding day was executed with perfection allowing Erin and Taylor to feel fully present in every moment.  Seriously, future brides, hire the best of the best in every vendor category and leave the stress behind.  There will never be another day in your lifetime when all of your friends and family (his too) are gathered under one roof so take it all in….pick up the bouquet, not a binder…and participate in the fairytale you dreamed of.  I know Erin and Taylor wouldn’t change a thing about their wedding day. (Full vendor list at bottom of post)

Thank you both for trusting my team to tell your story.  We wish you both a lifetime of blessings ahead.  Telling your story was a joy.

Capturing weddings are always very special and very personal but when it is involves a family member, everything seems just a bit sweeter.

I have known Erin her entire life.  That little Christmas baby I first met at our grandmother’s house in Laurel, MS is all grown up now.  I first met Taylor 2 years ago at my aunt’s beach house in FL on an annual family beach trip.  I had been hearing about this very special guy that Erin was head over heels for.  I knew from the second I met him that these two were playing for keeps.  Taylor makes Erin happy in a way I had never seen before.  True love has a way of lighting you up from the inside out.

Taylor and Erin first met a few years ago in Atlanta at a November Friendsgiving party.  Erin almost skipped out on her invitation since she didn’t know many people going to the party.  But, as soon as she walked in the door, Taylor couldn’t take his eyes off her.  The story goes that he walked right over to her and they talked for hours and hours that first night.  Since then, they have shared adventures in traveling, many more beach trips and of course, LOTS of Alabama football games.

June 10, 2017 was so special.  One of the dearest moments was capturing that special silver ring you see in the middle of the invitation suite image.  It belonged to our grandmother, Hazel Fairchild. This “something old” meant so much to me too.  She was truly the cornerstone of our family and we all miss her very much. Having her ring among the details of the day made her feel a bit closer to all of us.

Erin is so loved by her parents.  The tears were plentiful this day from my aunt and uncle and what a joy it was to capture it all.  Enjoy Part 1 of their beautiful Atlanta wedding.

Erin is more than an Old South bride to me…she is family.

Really, she is my cousin from Mississippi (I was born there too) and our mothers are sisters.

Capturing her engagement (HERE at the Atlanta Historical Society’s Swan House)  and bridal session on top of wedding day (coming tomorrow) was just so special.

We had the most fun running all over the beautiful Georgian Terrace Hotel in downtown Atlanta back in April.  Bridal portrait sessions are full of dress up fun and this was a day we (my aunt, cousin and I)  will all remember so fondly.

Enjoy a peek at the new Mrs. Bryant’s bridal portrait session.
