Hey! We’re Jill and Aaron Osteen, newlyweds and owners of Aaron Nicholas Photography in South Carolina! We’re a husband and wife photography team, based in Charleston, who love to capture details, raw emotion, and natural, journalistic photos! We specialize in engagement sessions and outdoor / plantation style weddings in Charleston but are always up for a fun family, baby or whatever else type of shoot and will never turn down a chance to travel to capture your big day or event!
We have quite the story in how we met! I (Jill) am originally from Orange County, California and Aaron is a Black Mountain, North Carolina native, but we met while teaching English in South Korea back in 2009! We both left our hometowns to move across the world to teach, photograph and travel the world! We met when we found out that Aaron’s school’s cafeteria was making the lunches for Jill’s school. We would comment once in a while on each other's facebook pages about how crazy the octopus soup or blood sausage was that was served for lunch that day! Those silly Facebook messages quickly turned into a close friendship, and a plethora of photo outings around the city, and later evolved into an adventurous dating relationship! Our fairy tale continued when Aaron proposed at sunset, in the ocean, 3 years later, in the Philippines! We planned and created all of the decorations for our entire wedding from across the globe and got married July 28th, 2012 in Aaron’s aunt and uncle's gorgeous historic home in North Carolina!
We’ve lived in Asia for the past 4 years, driven around on a cute lil’ black scooter, traveled to 10 different countries, eaten some of the strangest foods out there, owned a Korean cat name Maverick, lived in a 200 square foot studio apartment together above a Korean BBQ restaurant, taught over 6,000 English classes to Elementary students combined, taken thousands of photos, been on over 50 airplanes and have done it all while being best friends and each others biggest fans! Now we’re Charleston locals and living blocks from the beach with our sweet dog Cash, in Folly! We are truly blessed!
