Guide To Charleston Photographers

Disclosure: This guide was brought to you courtesy of our many sponsors! Thank you to those photographers who chose to participate in this guide.

As mothers, it’s safe to say that some of our most treasured possessions are family photographs. New babies, family milestones, special achievements, momentous occasions: we love the opportunity to beautifully capture these memories. There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when looking back on the photos of your squishy newborn, or that first picture of your new family. It is our hope that this resource will make it easier to find the perfect photographer to capture the memories you make. We hope you enjoy working with them as much as we do!


Rachel Weber Photography was established in 2011 here in Charleston SC. I call my style of photography Artistic Lifestyle, where I aim to capture the true spirit of your family while adding my own unique creative look to your images. I love working on location all over the beautiful low country as well as offering sessions in my clients homes. I have photographed hundreds of families over the years, both locally and from all over the US. However a very large part of my clientele I have known for many years and I have had the pleasure of watching their children and families grow. I offer top of the line quality digital images, prints and canvases as well as the ability to chose only the images you wish to have or purchase and print them all. I want nothing more than to create images your family will love and cherish for years to come!

Hey there! I’m Ashleigh Lauber of Following Seas Photography. I’m a sucker for newborn yawns, toddler snuggles and lost-tooth smiles. If I’ve learned anything since becoming a mom it is that time moves too fast and babies don’t keep. It is my goal to give you images that instantly bring you back to that period of time with your child. My style is simple, authentic photography. I shoot sessions outdoors, in home and in my West Ashley studio.

Pure. Natural. Simple. Joyous. My name is Brittnay and these are words that I use to describe my photography style. I am a natural light lifestyle photographer specializing in capturing the connection between you and the people you love. I take pride in creating an experience that is easy, fun, and stress free. I love getting to know my clients prior to their session so I can really capture the essence of you and your family. My sessions usually begin with a few posed family photos, but once everyone has loosened up, I love getting more candid, natural, and connected images. I enjoy photographing newborns and children of all ages, families, and high school seniors. I am also available for small intimate weddings and engagement sessions.  My sessions are typically at an outdoor location that you choose or can be in the comfort of your own home.

Hi y’all!  My name is Melissa Hunt; I am a mom of 2 boys and wife to a retired Air Force veteran.  I love photographing families, babies, children and maternity!  I have been a photographer for about 20 years and I have been in business for myself almost 10 years.  Why should you hire me?  As a mom of two young boys I know how stressful a photo session can be.  I will sing, high five, laugh, run around, jump up and down, play peak-a-boo, and do whatever else I need to do to put your kids at ease.  I am really easygoing, will probably talk too much, and I will definitely try to convince you to do a sunset shoot to get the best light possible.  And I have a system for helping you pick the best outfits!  Getting pictures of your beautiful family shouldn’t be a chore, so why treat it like one?  Instead, let’s have fun and make some memories!

When’s the last time you wore your dream outfit, had professional hair and makeup done and had your photograph taken? Maybe your wedding? I created my business with the passionate believe that our weddings or our children’s weddings shouldn’t be the only time we give ourselves permission to look and feel incredible and have photographs taken. You can spend a morning with your mother, daughter, sister, best-friends or significant other. Celebrate a birthday, a milestone, a point of change in your life or your children’s lives with a morning all about pampering you and them. Walk away with heirlooms to be treasured for a lifetime from that morning of memories. I have the joy and the honor of giving these experiences. I would love to photograph you!

Most days when I’m not photographing you can find me chasing my two crazy toddlers, Beckett and Lakelynn. There is NEVER a dull moment around our home, and to be honest, that’s the way I like it. Speaking of Beckett and Lakelynn, they are the inspiration behind my business name. Taylor and Grace are their middle names, and together the business name Taylor Grace Photography was born! My love for photography started shortly after my son, Beckett, was born. My approach to photography is different from most, as I focus on the “in-between” moments that make up our relationships. The touch or a hand, the feeling of a hug, and the glimmer in an eye. I love to capture people in their relationships in real time. No forced smiles, only real emotions. I pride myself in being an emotive photographer. I gladly service the tri-county area that make up Charleston, and will happily travel all over the state. 

Specialties: Families, Couples, Weddings, Maternity, Newborns

Since childhood, I have been in love with taking photos, and as an adult I decided I would pursue that passion. I have been photographing for going on 7 years here in the lowcountry, and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon. I range from births to weddings, and everything in between. My goal is to capture memories, not just photos. I enjoy interacting with my clients and forming relationships that last a lifetime. My clients are like family to me, and that is my favorite part about my career. 

Specialties: Weddings/Events, Family Sessions
