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 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!:)

Nashville Engagement: Danielle & Trip

I had the pleasure of meeting Danielle and Trip at her sister Kourtney’s wedding earlier this year. I was so excited when I got an email from her saying that she was now engaged too! I am pumped to be working with their family again and can’t wait for their wedding this fall! I love the way Trip makes Danielle laugh and had so much fun wandering downtown Nashville with them earlier this week.:)Happy Weekend!

Charleston Wedding at Pepper Plantation – Nicole & Matt

Nicole & Matt had an amazing wedding on Saturday at Pepper Plantation in Charleston…and it was toasty.:)I was so impressed both by everyone’s great attitudes about taking photos in 100 degree weather, and the fact that they looked amazing while doing it! These two are so kind, and even on their wedding day they were constantly thinking of others (Ex- Nicole: “Aly, have you eaten?” Me: “Um, who cares about me- have YOU eaten?!”) 😉  There were lots of happy tears all day (guilty!) and it was evident that Nicole and Matt are both well loved by their families and friends. Hope you enjoy the photos!
