Jessica Doherty Active since I photographed my first wedding in 2014.
I’m Jessica, a Charleston-based wedding photographer, with a fierce love for storytelling, fostering memories, and capturing each moment, big and small. I love traveling everywhere and anywhere, talking with my hands, buying too many plants (and attempting to keep them alive), spoiling my sweet cat Louie, and spending as much time as I can with my loved ones. I have lived in Boston, Paris, and New York City, and am now lucky enough to call Charleston home, while also still traveling the world for my clients.

Quick Questions

Get to know me Insights
What is a fun fact about you?
I got my start in fashion photography by sneaking into Paris Fashion Week shows.
How did you land your first wedding?
For practice I asked a friend and his girlfriend to pose for couple photos when I was just starting out. A couple years later, they got engaged and asked me to photograph the wedding!
Who or what inspires you?
Fashion magazines. I began my career in Street Style photography so I am always drawn to editorial compositions.
What were you doing before you became a photographer?
I was an Art Director.
What’s your favourite thing about being a wedding photographer?
I know it may sound cheesy, but it is definitely my couples. It is such an honor to be trusted with capturing such an important day. I love seeing wedding photos of grandparents displayed at weddings. It always reminds me that these photos will last through generations. It makes it a big responsibility, and that is what really drives me.
