Charleston Elopement Photographer

My name is Jesse and I am so glad you’re here! I am a wedding, elopement and family photographer from Charleston, but I also shoot in Mount Pleasant, Summerville, Beaufort and the surrounding areas. I’d love to get to know you better and capture your special day!

I specialize in wedding, elopements, family, and engagement photography.

I travel back and forth between Charleston and Canada and update my Facebook page more then my website. Check below to see images from my most recent shoots.

Photography Services

 

My main focus is on Elopements and small weddings. I offer 1 - 4 hour elopement and wedding packages for those who want to capture the most important moments, but don't want an all day event. I love photographing elopements and small weddings because they are more intimate, laid back and fun for the couple!

 

I love to capture love, laughs and authentic emotions. I believe it is important to make my clients comfortable in front of the camera because it shows up in the final images. Before any shoot, I like to discuss what you want from your photos and come up with a plan. I offer advice on locations, outfit recommendations and I usually shoot around "golden hour" (about 90 minutes before sunset) to get the best light for your images.

 

I do offer tips on how to pose, but it's more like subtle suggestions so you still feel comfortable. Nobody wants to feel like they did during their school photos when they felt twisted and turned around all awkwardly! I usually will crack a bunch of corny jokes to get you more comfortable in front of the camera and I like to put you in situations that bring out authentic emotions and reactions. "Hold hands, walk towards me and make silly faces at each other" produces some amazing results!

My goal is to deliver images you will love for a lifetime!

About Jesse James

Hey there! Photography has been my career for 14 years! I love to capture amazing images for my clients and strive to make every photo session as fun and comfortable as possible (Because lets face it, not everyone loves to be in front of the camera. Me included!).

My main focus on photography is weddings, elopements, family, and engagement sessions in Charleston. I've photographed over 400 weddings in my career and more family shoots then I can count.

Besides that, I am originally from Canada but moved to the Charleston area at the start of 2021. I love the outdoors and everything the low country has to offer!

Testimonials

Jesse was such a joy to have as our wedding photographer. He captured the mood of our day perfectly! It’s hard to find a photographer that is able to use natural light as masterfully as Jesse has. He captured so many amazing candid moments and even made us look so natural for posed shots. We are so happy we went with him! A definite yes!

My husband and I got married earlier this year and we were extremely fortunate to have booked with Jesse James Photos. Jesse knew all the best photo spots. He made us feel comfortable immediately and helped us with tons of different pose ideas. I would definitely recommend hiring Jesse for any type of photography. His work is amazing!
