for playful, fashion forward couples
hosting a fun & memorable wedding
weekend that speaks to their soul
We're KATIE + JAY
husband & wife Charleston wedding photographers
With us as your wedding photographers, you can relax knowing that we'll be capturing your day as it looked & felt, while you focus on what matters most: your connection with your favorite people...even if that's just each other (we love elopements & tiny weddings and only had 5 guests at our own)
Our style is a mix of loosely directed poses that will allow your personalities to come through and candid moments that are the heart & soul of your wedding day, all while retaining true to life colors.
We want you to enjoy your wedding day with your favorite people, to have fun and to live in the moments as they're happening, together.
And if your dog happens to be there too, thats just the cherry on top!
We're not photographing your wedding
we're documenting you getting married and how you spent that day.
Your images will be a mix of curated candids, loosely posed portraits, and all your dreamy colorful details.
You live in the moments, we'll preserve them.
With over 500 weddings photographed since 2009 (damn, we've been around longer than Pinterest!), we've discovered that our best work happens when our couples trust us implicitly and choose to be present at their wedding.
If you aren't worried about dirty dresses or get upset when things don't go exactly as planned, you're doing what you want, not what you're told is expected, you want to be fully present in the day and intentionally choose to spend as much time together and with your wedding guests, creating memories of the wedding day instead of avoiding each other & missing cocktail hour to follow out-dated traditions and you're planning a stylish celebration, big or small, that speaks to your soul and you want photos that look how your day felt...hi (-:

Color Lover. Former Disney Cast Member. Gemini.
+ I love fashion! Cute & colorful clothes are my go to and I wear them on wedding days
+ I was born & raised on Long Island but have lived in the South since I was a teenager
+ One could say I'm a little too interested in the paranormal - Halloween is my favorite holiday & I grew up in 2 haunted houses in NY and the house we live in now is definitely haunted
+ Jay asked me to marry him at Disney World in front of Rapunzel's tower -she's my favorite AND inspired my wedding attire!
+ I'm the nerdy one this relationship. I love pop culture, Disney & anime! I have a big Sailor Moon tattoo on my arm and my office desk is covered in anime and Disney merch
+ I'm currently studying Japanese for our future trip & it's super hard, but it's been fun!
+ Schitts Creek, Letterkenny, Ted Lasso & Bobs Burgers are Elite Television
+ I'm in the process of getting dual citizenship in Ireland - my grandmother was born in County Donegal and even though she came to America in her early 20's, she had a thick Irish accent her entire life
Dad Joke Expert. Hockey Fan. Dog Whisperer.
+ I leave the colorful outfits to Katie on the wedding day & hang up my signature floral hat in favor of darker clothes so that I blend in like a ninja at your wedding. It's how I get the best candids!
+ I've been playing Disc Golf for over 15 years and I've designed several Disc Golf courses in the Charleston area.
+ For 10 years I was the lead singer of a punk rock band (Neglected Superhero) and played at Warped Tour two years in a row. Katie & I figured out that she was there the same day my band played one year long before we knew each other
+ I volunteered at a Big Cat Rescue in Tampa FL (no, not the one Carole Baskin owns) and worked with lions, tigers and bears...no lie. Ask me about how a hungry bear chased me
+ Favorite Disney ride: It's a Small World (Disneyland version)
WE GOT MARRIED ON 3.13.18
and our colorful micro wedding was
featured on Martha Stewart!
Falkor, Zelda & Blue
Don't mind us, we're just a bit obsessed with our 3 mini Aussies!
Falkor was named after the Luck Dragon from Neverending Story
Zelda was named after Zelda Fitzgerald (but so was Princess Zelda so if you ask us if thats who she's named after, we always say "yeah kinda")
Blue was named after the Raptor from Jurassic World
" 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.
