About

Hey! We鈥檙e Jill and Aaron Osteen, owners of Aaron and Jillian Photography in South Carolina! We鈥檙e a husband and wife photography team, based in Charleston, who love to capture details, raw emotion, and natural, journalistic photos! We specialize in classic outdoor weddings in Charleston but are always up for traveling to capture your big day!!

We've been together for 11 years, married for just over 8 and have been photographing 40 weddings a year together, for just over 7 years! Yep, we work together, live together, and do just about everything together. We're also both avid travelers, home design enthusiasts, lovers of southern hospitality and co-owners of Aaron and Jillian Photography in Charleston, South Carolina! Since meeting in South Korea, back in 2009 (yep, you heard that right!), we've lived a full and exciting life together! We've opened this business together, traveled to 18 different countries (five of those trips were to shoot weddings!), raised one heck of an adorable yellow lab (Boone!) and photographed over 250 weddings together! We're basically attached at the hip - and we love it that way!

We live a simple life here in Charleston, but one that makes us incredibly fulfilled and happy! Now we can't wait to hear your story!

We LOVE them!

From the moment we met Aaron and Jillian, we just knew they were meant to be our wedding photographers. Every single step of the way they were incredibly personable, responsive, and professional! On our wedding day, they made us feel comfortable and blended in seamlessly. I sometimes forgot that they were there while they were capturing each moment because they were so agile and respectful of our wedding. When we received our album, everything was absolutely beautiful! Our wedding day was incredibly special and every time we look at our pictures, we feel like we are reliving those moments. They truly captured every emotion and as we look back on them we can feel that same joy as if we were in the moment again. After the wedding, they promptly sent us sneak peeks, and before we knew it our full album was delivered to us! As a gift from my parents, we designed a 12x12 album with them. 20 beautifully laid our spreads, covered in midnight blue leather. Jillian spent so much time getting the album perfect in design and was so thoughtful in what images went together. Arriving a few short months later, our jaws dropped as we looked through our album together. It is something we will have forever and cannot wait to show our children. We will cherish our wedding photos forever and will also remember how amazing it was to work with Aaron and Jillian. We are so thankful that they were a part of our day and cannot imagine it without them! They are such amazing people to not only work with but to also know!!

Absolutely Amazing Experience

Aaron and Jillian are simply AMAZING! They were so sweet to listen to all of my photo ideas and wardrobe questions (as this was for our Engagement photo session) and were very prompt both through email communication and the day of our session. They made my fianc茅 and I feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera and it really shows in all of our photos! We are so thrilled with how our photos turned out and cannot wait to work with them again on our wedding day!

Simply the BEST!

We fell in love with Aaron and Jillian from our first conversation and literally can not say enough good things about this dynamic duo photography team! Not only are they incredibly talented - seriously every single photo they took was magazine worthy - and professional - very reliable and easy to communicate with - but they are extremely personable and the type of people you just want to be around. They are both such bright lights that made us feel SO comfortable throughout our engagement shoot/wedding day and captured SO many gems with a quick turnaround. Our bridal party and guests were obsessed with them as well. They clearly love what they do and their passion and energy is contagious. Plus they have such amazing chemistry working together as a married couple team. Hands down one of the best decisions we could have made around the wedding! We could not recommend them enough and are so thankful for the hard work they put in to make sure the magic of our wedding was captured on film.
