Your Wedding Day is a Love Story…Tell it to our Camera!
Yes we are wedding officiants, but we are also wedding photographers. If you need dependable and reasonably priced wedding photography for your elopement or small wedding, then give us call.

Our experience in celebrating the marriage of over 1000 couples gives us a special insight into telling your love story through pictures.

Venues for Great Wedding Day Pictures
The Columbia and Lexington area is filled with venues that are free and can make your wedding day a special picture day. The South Carolina Governors Mansion with its beautiful gardens are open to the public during the week. The Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park has several beautiful and scenic locations along the Broad River and around its historical buildings. The USC campus in downtown Columbia has many striking photographic opportunities around the Horseshoe. Virgina Hylton Park in Lexington has a wonderful creek side venue for a wedding. There are many other locations to choose from. Visit our free wedding venues page for a complete list.
Wedding Days at a Home
Many couples want to have their special wedding day at their personal or family home. Don’t think your photograph memories will be limited just because you have your wedding at home! There are many spots around a home that can offer special intimate photos, like on a stairway, in the garden, in front of a fireplace, or even around a candle lit dining room table.
Prices start at just $175 for a 1 hour wedding photography photo shoot (Columbia, S.C. and Charleston, SC areas only, additional travel fee may be required for other areas).
We also offer a Combination Ceremony and Photography Package which starts at $195. We video record the ceremony and take photos before, sometimes during, and after the ceremony. Click here to view a video and gallery of a recent wedding that took advantage of our package.

Our Photographic Equipment
We do not shoot weddings with consumer cameras. We use a professional grade Canon 5D MkIII camera and a Canon 6D MkII as a backup and video camera. We have multiple flashes for primary and backup if needed, lighting umbrellas for flash and video, and LED light panels for continuous illumination. Using a professional grade camera is important for many reasons; 1. it has dual card clots to record and back up your digital images concurrently, 2. the image quality is very high, over 21 mega pixels, 3. professional cameras have full frame sensors while many consumer level cameras do not, 4. the print quality is higher, and 5. various sized lenses can be used as necessary.
