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.

Nashville Engagement Session: Lauren & Charlie

I had so much fun with these two on their engagement shoot last Sunday! They literally picked me up and drove us from Cumberland Park all the way out to the lake and it was awesome getting to hang out and get to know each other more.:)Since Lauren and Charlie got engaged on a lake, they thought it would be fun to incorporate some lake shots into their session and I am so glad we did! The lighting out there was amazing! Enjoy-

Belle Meade Country Club Wedding: Amy & Charlie

“Hey pretty girl, can I have this dance
And the next one after that
Gonna make you mine there’s a real good chance
Hey pretty girl, can I have this dance

Hey pretty girl, it feels so right
Just like it’s meant to be
All wrapped up in my arms so tight
Hey pretty girl, it feels so right

Life’s a long and winding ride
Better have the right one by your side
And happiness don’t drag its feet
Time moves faster than you think”
