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.

Country Music Hall of Fame Wedding: Emily & Jonathan

Emily and Jonathan had a sweet, timeless wedding last weekend and I am so happy to share it with y’all! I have photographed a few of Emily’s friends’ weddings, and it made it extra fun to see familiar faces celebrating her as a bride this time.  There was so much laughter and joy throughout the day and Big Events knocked it out of the park with the reception design. (Photographer heaven!) Happy Wedding Wednesday!

I’On Creek Club Wedding: Katelyn & Sören

Y’all this wedding was so fun! I first met Katelyn and Sören for coffee the day I moved into my house. When I told them I would be in work out clothes potentially covered in paint splatters (soooo professional), Katelyn assured me she wouldn’t dress too nice to make me feel better haha. 😉 These two are kind, welcoming and laid back. Their wedding was such a fun mix of Greek and German traditions, and they made sure to make spending time with their guests a priority since many of them travelled from Europe for the wedding. Enjoy!

Nashville Wedding: Kat & Matt

When you alternate between laughing and crying all day, you know its a good wedding. 😉 Kat and Matt had such a fun, laid back celebration at Ruby Nashville! These two are thoughtful, funny and welcoming. I loved seeing the genuine joy that their friends felt for them throughout the day (shown through the abundance of tears and the heartfelt toasts) and the incredibly meaningful wedding details they included in their day (a “good luck” heirloom bracelet, Kat’s grandmother’s buttons sewed on her dress, etc). Enjoy!

Greenville Engagement: Emily & Jonathan

I had the pleasure of meeting Emily 2 years ago at Logan and Bryan‘s wedding! I was so excited when she contacted me about shooting her wedding this year. I met Emily and Jonathan at Furman for their engagement shoot last weekend, and since they kissed under the bell tower, Furman’s tradition says they are getting married! 😉 (Thank goodness because their wedding is in a few weeks!)
