photographing weddings since 2009
we had a colorful micro-wedding with sheep!
We believe your wedding photos should be beautiful, real, and FUN
You believe in being present over perfect, doing what feels right to you, and embracing color and personal style to add your own unique touches to the design.
Our style is a blend of loosely directed poses so you feel confident & natural during your portraits with our sought after effervescent candid images that will always remind you how it felt to be in that moment.
We're an inclusive husband and wife photography team based in Charleston South Carolina, serving couples of all races & ethnicities, sexualities, genders, religions and physical/mental abilities.
a.k.a. Catherine Ann
Gemini. former disney cast member.
I'm obsessed with gardens (even though I have a black thumb), historic places and fashion! I have a cute, and colorful wardrobe that I love to wear on wedding days to blend in with your guests like a total fashion Siren - luring everyone into a sense of ease that makes snapping candid pics a breeze – they don't even see it coming! I don't sing though.
I was born in New York & I'm absolutely obsessed with all things paranormal and Halloween is my favorite holiday! Probably because I grew up in not one but two haunted houses in NY! Or maybe its me thats haunted. My current house has a ghost – who needs a boring, normal house anyway?
I'm the nerdy one. Pop culture, Disney, anime – you name it, I'm all about it! I have a big Sailor Moon tattoo on my arm, and my desk is practically a shrine to anime and Disney. I used to work at Disney World & Jay proposed to me in front of Rapunzel's tower! I'm also trying to learn Japanese - it's really hard but so much fun!
I'm in the process of getting dual citizenship in Ireland. My grandma was from County Donegal! Once I get this, we'll be splitting our time in Europe, capturing fellow Americans throwing epic European weddings!
"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 & Damir
dad joke expert. hockey fan. dog whisperer.
On wedding days, I leave the flashy outfits to Katie, hang up my signature floral hat, and go ninja with my darker clothes. You know, gotta blend in stealth mode to capture those epic candids – it's like a secret art form!
I've been playing Disc Golf for over 15 years & used to be sponsored by Innova. On top of that, I've put on my course designer hat (pun intended) and designed several Disc Golf courses in the Charleston area. It's not just a game; it's a lifestyle!
I was the lead singer of a punk rock band called Neglected Superhero for a solid decade. We played at Warped Tour two years in a row. Katie and I figured out that she was at Warped Tour the same day my band played, way before we even knew each other!
I volunteered at a Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, FL (nope, not the one Carole Baskin owns). Lions, tigers, bears – I worked with them all. And yes, there's a story about a hungry bear chasing me – ask me about it sometime!
I'm not as big a Disney fan as Katie, but if I had to pick a favorite Disney ride? It's a Small World, Disneyland version, hands down.
THE AUSSIE ENTOURAGE
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 that's who she's named after, we always say "Yeah kinda")
Blue was named after the Raptor from Jurassic World
advocators of doing what feels like you
We got married in 2018 wearing a pink dress and emerald green suit. Our micro wedding was inspired by color & our personalities and we kicked tradition to the curb by getting dressed together at home!
We know from experience that if you include the people and things that bring you joy, and do what feels right for you, you'll have the wedding of your dreams.
Life is too short to give a shit about other peoples opinions!
are we a good fit?
OUR STYLE & VIBE AREN'T FOR
EVERYONE - AND THAT'S OK!
Over the last fifteen years, we've developed an iconic shooting and editing style as wedding photographers. Your wedding images will be a curated blend of candids, loosely posed portraits, and all of your intentional details preserved with true to life colors that pack a little bit of punch!
You live in the moments, trust us to immortalize them.
what sets us apart
We've documented over six hundred weddings, which makes our experience pretty much unbeatable and work closely with you and your wedding planner to craft a photography timeline that prioritizes the parts of your day that matter most to you. We aim to keep it relaxed and unhurried, allowing those genuine, magical moments to unfold naturally!
And we get it – having your photo taken may not be your favorite thing. I've even cried during a photo session from the anxiety. To prevent that from happening to you, we've created a laid-back & fun experience that makes it easy and enjoyable! It all starts with getting to know you and your relationship before the engagement session. When it comes around, it feels like hanging out with friends who casually capture amazing images of you. This relaxed vibe continues into your wedding day and many of our couples have told us that our arrival was a sigh of relief for them because they knew we had everything under control!
You're the guests of honor at your wedding, and we're your biggest cheerleaders. We want to ensure you're having a blast, mingling with your loved ones, taking a breather, and simply being yourselves. It's your day, and we're here to make it unforgettable and, of course, a ton of fun!
we're all about
FLOWERS, FLOWERS, FLOWERS
LIVING IN THE MOMENT
dance floor shenanigans
having a damn good time
you, at cocktail hour
so you like our style and vibe
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
Our best work happens when our couples trust us 110%, let us do our thing, and choose to be present over perfect.
Your wedding day is going to be a reflection of your unique style and personal love story. You're not one to sweat the small stuff, like a dirty dress or suit, or a few unexpected hiccups, because you embrace the beauty of imperfections and tossing those old, tired wedding traditions out the window! You're going to be doing things your way, listening to your heart, to have a celebration thats as distinctive as you are!
