Holy City Wedding Photography is based in Charleston, SC, but is always ready to travel. We strive to provide colorful, bold, unique, & timeless photographs that you and your loved ones will cherish for generations. We look forward to talking with you about your incredibly special day!
Photographer and owner Keller James has been an avid photographer for over 14 years. He has been a wedding photographer in the Charleston area for over four years now. He graduated from the College of Charleston with a major in studio art focusing in photography and minors in both business administration and economics.
There are absolutely no extra charges for my services. All packages include coverage time of the actual wedding, editing of all images, and delivery of the digital photographs. I will provide a secondary photographer, along with myself, to ensure your event is fully covered. You will have full rights to all of your images. All I ask is if you share anything on social media, through print, etc. that you give me credit please!
How Will I Receive My Wedding Photos?
Your photos will be delivered to you via the wonderful & easy-to-use website: Pixieset! Pixieset is an online service that allows me to create your personal digital wedding gallery, then send it to you via email. Once your wedding gallery is available, you will receive an email invitation from Pixieset with a download code that allows you to download all of your photos from the link. You may share your gallery with as many family and friends as you wish with an unlimited amount of downloads. Additionally, you may order prints directly from the Pixieset website. If you would like to view a preview Pixieset wedding album that one of my past couples has approved for me to share so you can become familiar with Pixieset please let me know!
How Many Photos Should I Expect To Receive & When Will I Receive Them?
You will receive approximately 100-150 images per hour of coverage time (approximately 1000 images total for eight-hour coverage). Typically, your images will be available for you to view in six to ten weeks after your Big Day. However, I will send you a few preview images one to two weeks after your wedding day!
Where Are You Located?
In Charleston, South Carolina aka "The Holy City"!
Do You Travel? If So, What Are Your Travel Fees?
ABSOLUTELY! I am always ready to take a trip whether it be domestic or international! I have photographed destination weddings in Mexico, Alabama, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, and the list goes on. As for travel fees all I ask is that you pay (1) For me to get there and back home (2) Accommodations (3) A drink or two or ten!
What Do We Need To Do To Book With You?
I need two things from you in order to have you booked! (1) Fill out & sign my contract. (2) Put down a deposit.
How Much Is The Deposit?
Your deposit is a THIRD (1/3rd) OF THE TOTAL PRICE of the package you have decided on. For example, if you decided on 8 Hours of Coverage ($2,650) & an Engagement Shoot ($450) your total would be $3,100. Thus your deposit would be $1,033.33!
Can We Have The RAW Files?
So sorry, but NO you Can't have the RAW files! Would you prefer a guitar or just the wood to make it? Of course, the guitar! You want the final product not the materials. I chose the best images and assure you that you will receive plenty of photos to be more than satisfied. Honestly, editing is more than 80% of my process and is what makes my work... MY WORK!
This All Sounds WONDERFUL But Just In Case Do You Have INSURANCE?
I sure do! If your venue or anybody needs proof of my insurance please let me know and I will be happy to share it with you!
Can You Make Me Skinnier, Add A Different Background, Correct Out-Of-Place Clothing, ETC.???
All of these "type of requests" are actually a completely different profession than a photographer. These requests are for Retouchers!!! However, I have been at this for long enough now that I have thoroughly taught myself retouching skills. So, while YES I can do retouching for you it will come at a price. The price all depends on what you want me to do. Contact me and we can absolutely discuss what you're looking for!

Best Wedding Photographer!
We started planning our wedding about two years before the date and met with Keller on one of our trips to Charleston. He was great to work with during the entire planning process, our engagement photos and wedding photos. We had well over a hundred e-mails back and forth during the planning process and he always answered all of my questions. Our engagement and wedding photos both look like photos from a magazine. Everyone at the wedding enjoyed working with Keller. He and his assistant were easy going, took amazing photos, they were on time and we were even able to start the ceremony early. We only had Keller there for four hours during our wedding day but, we were able to achieve all of the photos we wanted and more. Go ahead and book Keller for all of your engagement, bridal and wedding photos you will not regret. Make sure to check out his website for a sample of his amazing photos.Sent on 07/21/2019

Keller is an amazing photographer who is wonderful to work with. My finance surprised me with a proposal which Keller caught on camera and followed with a few portraits. He was very professional and I had no idea he was there snapping photos. He made us both feel extremely comfortable and the photos are beautiful! So happy we had him there to capture the moment!Sent on 09/14/2017

Is there a rating higher than 5 stars?!
Seriously can’t recommend Keller enough! He’s awesome! He works with you from the very beginning to capture what you envision for your wedding, down to the details of shots that you want taken. He is professional, but makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. His fun loving personality meets his passion and talent for photography, and the result is some seriously awesome photos! He’s affordable, and worth every penny! Book him for your wedding- it’ll be one of he easiest decisions for wedding planning you’ll make!Sent on 11/12/2018
