Jeanne Mitchum Photography as seen on @offbeatbride

A little about me….in case you’re wondering.

My name is Jeanne (pronounced G-Knee) and I live in beautiful Charleston, SC. As a photographer, I love that my job can take me to so many alluring places, and I am ready and willing to go. While I do live near spectacular beaches and lush plantations, I especially love the mountains, cold air, and wooded areas with winding roads. My heart beats hard after adventure.

Some of my favorite haunts right now are thrift stores and coffee shops. (Iced Cafe Americano, please!) My husband is the most amazing person you'll ever meet, and he just happens to be a pastor. Yes, this horror movie fanatic,—zombie loving,— metal head, is a pastor's wife and loving every minute of it. Moseley is my clever little Shih Tzu side-kick, and I rock a bass guitar on Sunday mornings. Music is woven into my life just as much as photography is and I hope to someday travel with a band and capture all their shenanigans on and off stage (hello bucket list!).

Enough about me, I’d love to get to know you, learn a little about what music you’re listening to and a lot about your relationship, love story and plans for your wedding day.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I dig couples who are quirky, eclectic and unconventional, probably because I carry that vibe as well. It is important to celebrate who you are individually, and as a couple. If that looks like zombies and comic books, bring it on! If that looks like marching down the street to your very own saxophone player, fantastic! Whatever brings out your best, most authentic self is what I'll encourage you to do. I'll capture your lop-sided grins, the stolen glances, and the shy smiles.

Building relationships with my couples is important to me. From the first contact until your big day, there will be times to engage so that you are completely comfortable working with me as your photographer. This can be especially helpful if you're a destination bride & groom.

Now let's talk details. It's amazing to me how much thought, care, and attention goes into every wedding, and how unique they each are. It's my job to capture your day in all it's living color, right down to all the little details you've poured your heart and soul into. During our first few meetings I will encourage you to push all the other voices aside so we can discuss your dreams for your wedding day. I know you have them, and they're probably pretty epic! Be bold and trust your heart in this. Together we will create artistic images that reflect your heart, your personality and your vision for this celebration of a lifetime.

"Jeanne Mitchum Photography is a beyond amazing photographer with a very creative view. From the way that she is able to incorporate the structures, shadows or colors of a location for an unexpected shot, to the way that she eases you into being comfortable in front of the camera and the amazing editing work she does, she is all around the best! She doesn't look at you sideways for oddball requests, and welcomes the challenge of something new! The reactions to the photos she took had some people even saying they should be in a magazine. She's also extremely helpful in offering other help or suggestions for the wedding planning process in general. The pictures of your big day will last a lifetime, and she's the one that can make the grandkids look back and say "Whoa, Grandma and Grandpa were badass!" – Jade Griffith

I absolutely love working with offbeat couples. Mention that you saw me on here and I'll add an additional portrait session to any package you choose. I also already offer a $200 off discount to anyone willing to do a first look on their wedding day. Message me for details.
