WELCOME

Moseley is my clever little Shih Tzu side-kick, and I rock a bass guitar on Sunday mornings. Music is woven into my life just as much as photography is and I hope to someday travel with a band and capture all their shenanigans on and off stage (hello bucket list!).
I dig couples who are a little quirky, eclectic and unconventional, probably because I carry that vibe as well. It is important to celebrate who you are individually, and as a couple. If that looks like zombies and comic books, bring it on! If that looks like sheer pinks and  lush plantations or marching down the street to your very own saxophone player, fantastic! Whatever brings out your best, most authentic self is what I'll encourage you to do. I'll capture your lop-sided grins, the stolen glances, and the shy smiles.

Lastly, building relationships with my couples is important to me. From the first contact until your big day, there will be times to engage so that you are completely comfortable working with me as your photographer. This can be especially helpful if you're a destination bride & groom.
Now let's talk details. It's amazing to me how much thought, care, and attention goes into every wedding, and how unique they each are. It's my job to capture your day in all it's living color, right down to all the little details you've poured your heart and soul into. During our first few meetings, I will encourage you to push all the other voices aside so we can discuss your dreams for your wedding day. I know you have them, and they're probably pretty epic! Be bold and trust your heart in this. Together we will create artistic images that reflect your heart, your personality and your vision for this celebration of a lifetime. 

Thats enough about me, I’d love to get to know you, learn a little about what music you’re listening to and a lot about your relationship, love story and plans for your wedding day.

A little about me….in case you’re wondering.
My name is Jeanne (pronounced G-Knee) and I am a wedding photographer in Charleston, SC.  I love that my job can take me to so many alluring places, and I am ready and willing to go.  While I do live near spectacular beaches and lush plantations, I especially love the mountains, cold air, and wooded areas with winding roads. My heart beats hard after adventure. Some of my favorite haunts right now are thrift stores and coffee shops. (Iced Cafe Americano, please!) My husband is the most amazing person you'll ever meet, and he just happens to be a pastor. Yes, this horror movie fanatic,—zombie loving,— metal head,  is a pastor's wife and loving every minute of it.

A short video of a styled shoot

This is a Charleston styled shoot that I had the pleasure of doing with the fabulous Beth at Wildflowers Inc. She does spectacular wedding planning and design work. The shoot was at the historic Thomas Bennett house downtown Charleston. This house is perfect for your southern wedding in Charleston! It's just one of many gorgeous Charleston wedding venues! If you're looking for any audio or lighting for your wedding day then check out Fox AV, they're the geniuses behind this video.

all about me

meet


As a Jeanne Mitchum Photography couple you can expect that I'm here to help you with whatever it is you need while planning your wedding. If you have wedding planning questions or questions about a specific vendor, I'm here to help you. Photography has been my passion and career for over 10 years now. I don't view my role in your wedding day as just some hired gun that shows up, documents the day, and leaves. It is my hope to do much more than that.  Building relationships with and serving my clients is just as important to me as capturing the photos.
  Once you've checked out my website and decided that my images look like images you could see yourselves in—then head on over to the contact page and get in touch with me. I love getting emails especially about weddings! I'll send you over some info about my pricing, which starts at $2,655.  After that we will set up a time to meet and talk about your awesome love story and your wedding day. If we seem like a good fit, then great!! A contract will get written and signed and we'll be on our way to creating awesome images that you'll be able to look back on for a lifetime! After all your wedding photography is super important and it's all that will be left (other than your fabulous marriage) when the  wedding is over. 
(I offer several packages and an hourly rate. I also offer payment plans. Hit that contact button to find out more.)


what you can expect

I love that photography gives me many opportunities to meet and work with so many great people. While I do photograph a lot of weddings I love more than anything helping people come up with great images that will hopefully help them succeed at their work. Photography can play a huge role in advertising or just simply getting a message across. I love brainstorming ideas and then seeing those ideas played out in images.  If you're someone that needs photography for advertising or any other marketing/promotional need I would love to help. 




If it's family or senior portraits you are looking for I love those too. Much like commercial work, I love brainstorming ideas for these types of shoots too.

"Jeanne Mitchum Photography is a beyond amazing photographer with a very creative view. From the way that she is able to incorporate the structures, shadows or colors of a location for an unexpected shot, to the way that she eases you into being comfortable in front of the camera and the amazing editing work she does, she is all around the best! She doesn't look at you sideways for oddball requests, and welcomes the challenge of something new! The reactions to the photos she took had some people even saying they should be in a magazine. She's also extremely helpful in offering other help or suggestions for the wedding planning process in general. The pictures of your big day will last a lifetime, and she's the one that can make the grandkids look back and say "Whoa, Grandma and Grandpa were badass!"

"Jeanne Mitchum is the best! Period! There is NO ONE ELSE who could have captured our day so beautifully and made the entire process so smooth! Whenever we had questions, she made time to talk it out with us. If we wanted to change something, she was completely open to the idea. She also provided direction when we didn't know exactly what to do. For example, going into our wedding we were going to go the traditional route with not seeing each other until the ceremony. Jeanne just suggested there was another way of doing things with a First Look. After talking about it, we decided to do the First Look and it was the absolute BEST DECISION we made for our wedding day(besides marrying the love of my life!)! Without her, our wedding day would have been completely different, and in our opinion, not as amazing. If you are looking for the BEST photographer on the planet, Jeanne Mitchum is the one. Did I mention that ALL of our pictures, which include some that we didn't even expect to get, are the best quality out there, available for immediate purchase, and shareable to several social media sites with the click of one button? Jeanne Mitchum Photography. Best. Decision. Ever!"

"Amazing! I absolutely loved her, she gave me FAR more than I paid for and she is so sweet. We had three super nice photographers and when everything didn't work out as planned (surprise) they just worked with it and made it happen. Photography was definitely one of the most expensive and now looking back, it was soooo worth it!"

I have spent my morning sifting through (and for some, crying over) your photos of our wedding! They are amazing! The day went so fast so it is wonderful to have these pics to help us enjoy the day again and to see things we missed out on since we unfortunately could not be everywhere at once! One thing my mom said about you is "you got a really good photographer, you can tell not just from those photos she posted, but because you never really saw her." It's true, you were like a photo ninja!

BOOK HER NOW! She is fabulous to work with and makes you feel comfortable the entire time. Being in the event industry in Charleston, I had worked with her before. She treats every bride with respect and makes everything so easy. She has a wonderful artistic eye and we are so happy with our pictures. Cannot say enough nice things.

Yes, please?! I love exploring other cities! 

I am so glad you asked! I have a super awesome fun way of sending you your images. It's through a company called PASS. With PASS you get to not only download your images for personal use but share them on Facebook and take them with you where ever you go. To find out more click here.

I require a 25% retainer to save your date in my calendar. After that payments can be split however you want usually into four payments on the remaining balance of the money owed. I accept cash, check or credit card and taxes apply. 

I have found that on average a wedding day can take 8 hours from getting ready until the send off at the end of the night. That many hours is a decent amount of time to help me capture everything from start to finish and be able to retell the story in beautiful images! A six hour wedding is also doable, but it could be a little more rushed depending on the kind of wedding you are having. 

First looks are amazing!! They are a fantastic way for you to get to see each other before the wedding but it's more intimate and alleviates a good bit of stress and pressure. Plus you get more time with your spouse on your wedding day which is awesome! First look's also allow you to have a moment together where you can actually talk to each other privately and be excited together about the rest of your wedding day.  You're getting to see each other for the first time without the added pressure of everyone watching. That moment when you walk down the aisle is still perfect and special, first looks just alleviate some of the stress of it. You also get a chance to get all your photos done so that you can just head on to your reception and celebrate once you're married. 
I offer a $200 discount to anyone wanting to do a first look!
