I dig couples who are 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 in order to tell your story well. If that looks like zombies and comic books, bring it on! If that looks like marching down the street to your very own saxophone player at your Charleston wedding, Freakin sweet! Whatever brings out your best—most authentic self is what I'll encourage you to do. And don't worry I'll be there capturing all of your awkward laughs, the stolen glances, and the shy smiles.
Cuddling my shih-tzu pup Moseley, coffee (lots of coffee), jeans and t-shirts, seeing as many bands live as I possibly can, rocking purple hair occasionally, playing bass on Sundays, and one of my favorite things - watching the Office with my husband repeatedly.
My name is Jeanne (pronounced G-Knee) and I live in beautiful Charleston, SC. As a photographer in Charleston, 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, good music (I'm a tad obsessed with music), and spending time with friends and family. .
I was born and raised in Charleston, SC but I do love everything about a big city! You probably won't hear me say "y'all," but I do have a deep love for the south and it's beauty!
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 photos!
Your wedding images should take you right back to that special day. It's my job to capture your wedding from every detail to all the special relationships. It's all important and it all matters. I want to get to know you well enough so that I just blend in and look like one of the guests at your wedding.
Every photographer runs their business differently and there's certainly no right or wrong way. When you book me you get your images in a beautiful cloud gallery for easy downloading, sharing, and ordering prints. They are yours forever to do as you please with them.

As a Jeanne Mitchum Photography couple you can expect that I'm here to serve 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 happy 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.
If you've made it this far then we might be meant to be together.
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. After that we will set up a time to meet and talk about your awesome love story and your wedding day. At this point I'm sure we will hit it off!
"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 shot our engagement photos and our wedding in Charleston and we could not have been happier with the quality of her work. We came in from out of town on both occasions and she was incredibly accommodating and did a wonderful job of picking great spots throughout the city. The photos all turned out great and my wife and I give her our highest recommendation! Oh, and she's a super cool person on top of it all."

I have spent my morning sifting through (and for some, crying over) the 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!
"...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.

"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!"

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.
Jeanne Mitchum Photography. Best. Decision. Ever!
