About Katie & Jay

We promise to

candidly tell the story of your marriage so when you look back on your photos you'll think "wow, these feel like us!"

For the past 13 years we’ve been providing our couples with engagement, elopement and wedding photography that looks how their day felt with editorial style detail photos, portraits that were fun to take and stand the test of time, and candid moments that truly encapsulate what it felt like to be there.

We wanted Katie & Jay for our
destination wedding in Key West
because we fell in love with their
style & they seemed like they would
be a lot of fun to hang out with on
our wedding day!

They perfectly captured the feel &
emotions of our wedding and we
couldn't be happier.

If you're loving their aesthetic &
thinking about it, just book them.
As soon as you can. They're magic.

-Allie & Demir

Hello!

We're Katie & Jay

Husband & wife wedding & elopement photographers based in Charleston SC.

 

We focus on candid moments & loosley posed portraits that are fun to take!

 

Our couples are stylish, laid back, party people who value candid photos and want to spend as much time as possible with their guests - so they know doing a First Look & all of the formal photos before the ceremony is a must!

 

From vibrant garden parties at historic estates to sailcloth tent backyard soirees to modern elopements in Palm Springs where we cruise around in a vintage Cadillac, we want to tell your marriage story!

 

We believe in equality for all humans
regardless of race, gender identity, sexual
orientation or physical/mental abilities
Equality & Inclusion
