Born and raised in Charleston SC, Jeanne Mitchum always had a tenacious passion for all things visual. While attempting to keep herself busy as an only child, Jeanne would find herself drawing, painting or creating designer clothing out of bed sheets. Jeanne was always creating something. Over the years the medium changed from bed sheets and finger paints to cameras and photographs that have been featured in magazines, homes, and hearts; but that same passion is easily visible and very present in her photography today as much as it was in her younger years. Her love for art, photography, music, and movies turned into a journey of observing and documenting the world around her and developing those captured images in a dark room that she grew very fond of at the College of Charleston. The College of Charleston is located in the middle of one of the most historical treasures South Carolina has to offer and this ultimately led to her career as one of the most perennial and sought after wedding photographers in Charleston SC. "Being raised in such a beautiful area that contains so many different types of landscapes and visual flavors has greatly emboldened my appreciation for all that this area has to offer visually and I seek to capture that same degree of beauty and authenticity that my clients exude in a very tangible way." As a photographer, Jeanne subscribes to Oscar Wilde's theory that says, "be yourself, everyone else is already taken."

I met Jeanne at a bridal expo about 14 months before our wedding. I entered her very generous competition, where she rewards a couple with an all-paid wedding package, on a whim and we won! While we may not have realized it immediately, I learned quickly that Jeanne is an exceptional photographer. From the engagement shoot to the big 15-hour day, she captured the most special moments in the most special way. Her attitude and professionalism are just bonuses that come with her talent!Sent on 05/08/2015
My husband and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. We were blessed to have her shoot our wedding!

Jeanne Mitchum is the best! Period! There is NO ONE ELSE who could have captured our day so beautifully and made the entire process so smooth! Whenever we had questions, she made time to talk it out with us. If we wanted to change something, she was completely open to the idea. She also provided direction when we didn't know exactly what to do. For example, going into our wedding we were going to go the traditional route with not seeing each other until the ceremony. Jeanne just suggested there was another way of doing things with a First Look. After talking about it, we decided to do the First Look and it was the absolute BEST DECISION we made for our wedding day(besides marrying the love of my life!)!!! Without her, our wedding day would have been completely different, and in our opinion, not as amazing. If you are looking for the BEST photographer on the planet, Jeanne Mitchum is the one. Did I mention that ALL of our pictures, which include some that we didn't even expect to get, are the best quality out there, available for immediate purchase, and shareable to several social media sites with the click of one button? Jeanne Mitchum Photography. Best. Decision. Ever!Sent on 12/31/2013
