Wild Cotton Photography bio picture
  • Wild Cotton Photography is Aly Greer, a Nashville and Charleston wedding and lifestyle photographer.

    Photography in the Modern South: What does the "modern south" mean? For me, it means tradition with a twist. Think front porches, comfort food, bowties, nice manners...meets urban farming, pinterest projects, thrift store shopping, breaking the rules...and top it off with a little splash of "bless their heart." I am from Charleston, live in Nashville (and photograph lovely people in both cities). In my eyes, both cities are perfect examples of the modern south.

South Carolina Wedding: Anna & Sam

I met Anna as a bridesmaid in Marissa and Jason’s wedding earlier this year and she chatted with Melissa and I about potentially shooting her wedding. We both got in the car that night and commented on how sweet she was and how she would be such a fun bride. Fast forward a few months and we both were on our way to Greenwood to photograph her big day while also evacuating from Hurricane Irma! It was a crazy weekend of traveling but Anna, Sam and their adorable kids had such a great day with amazing weather! Enjoy!

McLeod Plantation Wedding: Jenny & Brent

Y’all…this wedding. I started crying before hair and makeup was even done. Brent looks at Jenny the way every bride wants her groom to look at her…and their first look is one of my all time favorites! Brent and Jenny got married last weekend at the lovely McLeod Plantation under gorgeous oak trees with their family and friends. I am lucky enough to be both their friend and photographer, which made the day extra special for me. Enjoy!

Charleston Engagement: Anna & Sam

I first met Sam as a groomsmen in Meghan and Matt’s wedding in Charleston, then about a year later I photographed Anna as a bridesmaid in Emily and Jonathan’s wedding in Nashville. When I saw Anna and Sam together at the reception, I realized that I had met them previously! So when they got engaged a few weeks later, I was so excited to talk with them about being their photographer.:)We had a great time exploring Sam’s childhood home on John’s Island for their engagement session, and the light was AMAZING. Can’t wait for their wedding next year!
