I am so happy that I hired Jackie and her assistant, Caroline, to capture my special day. She had very detailed outlines that she worked on with the assistance of my wedding planner in order to ensure that she captured the photos I wanted and with whom I wanted. On the day of, Jackie and Caroline were not only incredibly accommodating when my husband and I would go rogue with our shots, but they were also such a blast to work with! You can tell that they really enjoy what they do. Truly a great team, with a great sense of humor, style, and class. I highly recommend using them!"
First, I hired them for our wedding. Jackie was amazing with our engagement session, our various before pictures, ceremony and reception. We had a 4 yo and a dog in our wedding party and neither phased her one bit! After that amazing experience with you, we have continued to go back to SVP. From her holiday mini sessions to extended family session, Jackie is there. With stunning and beautiful locations and the ability to feel out a group, you can see the love and joy she takes in her work with every camera click."
Jacqueline nailed our engagement session (even with rain all day and a hair and makeup blunder). You could not for one second see any of the stress From the day reflected in the pictures! Our wedding portraits are phenomenal. We could not be happier with the finished product and will definitely use southern vintage again for our family photography needs!"
Our wedding collections average around $5k while our portrait sessions fall around $500.
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! We have a list of pre-selected locations to help our clients choose the perfect portrait spot, but we are open to your ideas as well! Just keep in mind that travel fees may apply to locations outside of the immediate Charleston area.
Charleston weather is extremely unpredictable. After years of watching the radar and doing the rain dance, I keep this possibility in mind every time I schedule portraits. I take a limited amount of sessions each week to keep dates open for weather reschedules. If you are local and the weather isn’t ideal, I always recommend rescheduling when possible! Portraits are an important investment and I want to provide you with the images you have envisioned. If you are visiting from out of town, I always try to schedule portraits towards the beginning of your trip to leave us with some flexibility in the event of inclement weather.
Whether it is weddings or portraits, you can expect anywhere from 50-150 images per hour of coverage. I provide this range because every session is different! Wardrobe changes, travel time, and many other circumstances determine the number of total images in a gallery. (A little secret, I can’t help myself and often fall on the higher side of that range)
That is very hard to do! Taking portraits is an awkward process, and that is totally normal. There is nothing to worry about as you are in good hands with me! I’ll guide you through every step of the way to help you create elegant and genuine images that you will cherish forever. Trust me, you might surprise yourself!
Our goal is to be present and invisible at the same time. By the time your wedding day comes around, we’ve already had some good laughs together so It should feel like seeing an old friend again! We arrive, exchange hugs, and slowly adopt your friends and family as our own as we float around the day capturing every last detail. We are beyond excited for the two of you, and it will show. There might be laughter, maybe a few tears, and definitely smiles, but without a doubt beautiful portraits!
