Who I Am
If you're looking for a relational-centered photographer who believes in people over posing, you're in the right place. I believe in authenticity. I pay close attention to the in-between moments and the often unnoticed, subtle interactions that are love expressed in its most genuine form. From a gentle hand touch to those quick smiles exchanged, my goal is to capture who you are and the love you have.
I am a photographer and love stories are my favorite.
HI, Y’ALL! I’M MARKIE.
Most days you’ll find me on the couch with a pup in my lap and a smile on my face. I am a wedding & lifestyle photographer based out of Greenville, SC. Specializing in wedding & lifestyle photography, my job is not something I take lightly. I've been married to my college sweetheart and forever love, Rob, for almost five years. The newlywed life has flown by and I'm so thankful for the dream come true that is my husband. Making our little family all the sweeter, I am puppy mama to our yellow Labrador, Paisley. We also are expecting a little girl soon!
I count my job as a success if you and I have become friends by your wedding day! I’m the girl who will help your grandma with her lipstick, bustle your gown, fetch you champagne, and meet you on the dance floor.
Markie, Rob & Paisley
Growing up in the south, I spent most of my childhood playing outside barefoot with my pups. I always loved to be outside and still do. With a creative spirit, my favorite activities involved music and art. My parents gifted me my first camera in high school and I've been hooked ever since.
Fast forwarding to college, I continued to pursue all things creative by focusing my studies on communications and music. It was in a performance group that I met my now husband. Falling in love with him is the easiest thing I've ever done! Today, we live out our love story along with our pup, Paisley.
WHAT I AM ALL ABOUT.
While beautiful images are important, they are not everything. I believe in people. I believe in caring for and serving others above all else. My goal is to ultimately be a friend and a shoulder to lean on through some of life's most exciting and tender moments.
Capturing gorgeous images brings me a lot of joy, but the greatest joy comes from the way photography gives me a platform to love on people and serve my clients in a genuine, excellent way.
My mission in my business is to show off who Jesus is with how I serve my clients and deliver beautiful imagery.
APPROACH & STYLE.
Joyful, effortless, romantic. These are the words that describe my approach to photography and weddings. While I do setup certain shots and aim for a fine art feel, I take on a documentary approach as well, meaning that your photographs will represent your day as it happened, beautifully and simply you.
