Wild Cotton Photography Blog 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.

Charleston Wedding: Amy & Jesse

Photographing the wedding of a friend is always so lovely. Amy is one of the most creative, genuine and thoughtful people I know, so I was excited to finally meet the guy who was lucky enough to be marrying such a gem. Jesse is the perfect balance for Amy- laid back, funny, and kind. These two had a great attitude about the off-and-on rain all day on Saturday, and you could tell they really just wanted to enjoy the day and be together. So excited to share their day with y’all!

Charleston Bridal Session- Dana

Now that I have officially packed up my house and made my way down to Charleston, I am excited to start sharing some of the photos of this awesome bride! I met up with Dana and two of her lovely bridesmaids in the Old Village for her bridal session. Despite the heat and gale-force winds on the Pitt Street Bridge, Dana rocked her photo session like a pro. Stay tuned for their wedding photos soon!:)
