Hello! I’m Jeni Buchanan, a wedding and lifestyle photographer here in North and South Carolina. I’m also available for destination weddings. If I can do anything in this life, I want to show people what love looks like through my lens.
From our first consult to the in-person album reveal, I take a personalized approach to my photography. I work closely to get to know my clients so that I can capture their unique personalities, best sides, favorite angles, and special moments. While I don’t do stiff posing, I do coach clients as we go to produce the most flattering, fun, and romantic shots. Sometimes, you’ll find me saying and doing slightly ridiculous things to coax a genuine smile and snap the perfect shot!
All of my packages are complete to include engagement sessions. Why? One of the best parts of the engagement shoot is getting to know my brides and grooms. It’s more than just a meeting before the wedding and certainly more than simply a photoshoot. It is a chance for us to get comfortable with each other and for me to get to know your preferences. And, as a true romantic, I love love stories. I want to capture not just your wedding––but the whole relationship!
The ultimate goal is to produce timeless imagery that you’ll be proud to show off even 20 years from now. My clients are for life. I work my hardest to ensure that my couples are over-the-moon about their photos, because it’s my hope that we’ll be seeing each other throughout the years – maternity sessions, family photos, and your 20th, 30th, or 50th anniversaries, even!
So, a bit about my love story: I’ve been married to my husband, Tim, since December 24th 1994! We’ve got a few quirky habits and traditions. We always say, “I love you bigger than the sky.” At Christmastime, we always put the first ornament on the tree together in the same spot each year and kiss – because we got married on Christmas Eve! And on our 20th anniversary, we had the most romantic and intimate vow renewal in Paris, France (see photo). Interestingly enough, to this day, our love lock is still on the Pont des Arts bridge!
