I cannot imagine a more amazing job.
When I (Julie, owner) left Corporate America 10 years ago, I could never have dreamed that my hobby of photography would take me around the world. The idea that clients would fly us to a foreign country to do what we LOVE doing seemed unattainable in those early years. I have a science degree. I’ve never taken one formal business class or photography class…but I had a passion to capture moments and I went full speed in that direction. From 2014-today, we have captured jaw-dropping weddings in St. Marteen, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico. In my wildest dreams, I never could have imagined where this company would lead.
I started Old South in my dining room with 2 busy toddlers underfoot….and today….Old South has grown to 8 photographers in a commercial studio in Charlotte, NC capturing weddings all over the world. The dream I whispered to the Lord in my prayers, HE brought to life in good time. Shooting this wedding in Mexico was truly one of the highlights of my career.
I have grown to adore Laken, Tucker and their families. From that first meeting in the studio over a year ago, to the engagement session (Separk Mansion), bridal session (Biltmore Estate-Asheville, NC) and spending 4 days together in Puerto Vallarta, these people will be a part of my life forever. Alyssa and I witnessed such overwhelming, all-encompassing love at their wedding in Puerto Vallerta. Mexico. What we do for a living is nothing short of a gift.
Enjoy a walk through their spectacular October 8, 2016 wedding day. No detail was missed. No moment unwitnessed. We would do it all again tomorrow. A decade from now, I will look back on this trip, this couple, this wedding as one of the defining moments of my life. GOD made it ALL come true. I will forever praise “him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” Ephesians 3:20
