We are Tonya & Heath Brisson, Full-time wedding & portrait photographers based in Charleston, South Carolina. We have been serving brides and families for 8+ years. We specialize in still photography and will be adding drone photography to our offerings in 2022. We partner with local officiants, DJs, Photobooths, and other wedding/event vendors throughout Charleston, Isle of Palms, and Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
We love to travel and welcome the opportunity to photograph a destination wedding. Our favorite part of a wedding is the reception! Who doesn't love good music, dancing, and cake?!?
When you hire us, you get BOTH of us. Two photographers for the price of one! Tonya takes a more artistic approach to the event by capturing editorial & journalistic imagery that is detail-oriented, whereas Heath takes the more candid imagery that documents the unscripted part of the event as it unfolds. With both of us in attendance, you are sure to get amazing imagery that will document the most important day of your lives....so far! As the rhyme goes...First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage...or the furbaby...whichever one you choose!
Our work together doesn't have to end with your wedding! Tonya has been awarded Best Family Photographer and Best Newborn Photographer in Charleston(expertise.com), TWICE! 2021 and 2022! Our dream clients are the ones who allow us to document their lives journey from start to finish!

Weddings are all about loving and being loved in return. It's a celebration of everything that is good in the world. Hope for the future, healing of past wounds, packaged with the excitement that is here and now. We love photographing magical moments like these. The happiness & joy of a wedding is food for the soul!

Don't worry about looking awkward in photos or knowing what to do or how to pose. Tonya is detail-oriented and knows prompts to give and poses to compose that are sure to help you relax, look natural, and feel like the best version of yourself! Heath always offers comic relief, keeping the mood upbeat, and fun! Together, we will curate the perfect memories for you to look back on for the rest of your life. Even your future mother-in-law will be impressed!
Everything that you are planning for your wedding is temporary, except for your photographs, they are forever. You will be able to relive your wedding day over and over again by hiring the right photographer with a timeless style that you will cherish "'til death do you part". Instagram trends may be cool now, but in 10 years you will be asking yourself "what was I thinking?".
Wedding photography is an investment that you will cherish for your entire lifetime and the generations beyond. After you've stored your dress, the cake has been eaten, the flowers have wilted, and the guests have left, all that's left are memories...and your photographs. Try not to let money be the deciding factor in who you choose to work with. Make sure you feel comfortable with your chosen photographer(s), and be sure to examine portfolios (link to our portfolio) and reviews (link to our reviews).
And lastly...We offer payment plans! You don't have to sacrifice your memories to uncle Bob, his cell phone camera, or any of those weird poses he wants you to do!
Share how you met, how they proposed, where you are tying the knot, the date you've locked in, and ask us all of your questions! We are here to help with absolutely everything we can.
