Family Photography

I’m so glad you’re here. Whether you’re planning family photos, visiting Charleston for the first time, considering a multi-family session, or you just want to document this sweet chapter in your lives. 

Photos are so incredibly important; I would love to take part in your family’s journey to fulfill this dream. We will snap those smiling shots in the beginning that the grandparents want or that you may need for Christmas cards. However, I desire to offer you more than that. Capturing your family’s history right now, this chapter, every stage and detail is crucial.  My desire is to STOP TIME with my camera. 

Licensed and insured to photograph at 4 of Charleston’s local beaches including several locations in and the Charleston area. I love to travel and offer travel sessions outside of the Charleston area. My family owns about 20 acres of land in Bowman, SC near Columbia. I love to offer sessions there also.(We have silos!! And we are planting sunflowers this year) So please inquire if you would like a session outside of the areas listed.

I also will travel to Greenville, SC and Asheville, NC for photography sessions.  Both areas are beautiful for sessions.  Please inquire for pricing.

If you are interested in booking a family session in the Charleston area with Oakley Photography, please contact me for a Welcome and Pricing Guide. 

Concerned about what to wear for family photos?  I got you!  Once the session is booked, You will receive a link to a website called Style and Select that helps you choose your outfits. I will also send you my what to wear guide and my pinterest board with outfit ideas and colors.   

"We were in search of a photographer in the Kiawah Island area for our family beach trip. I came across Oakley Photography while I was searching through Instagram. I absolutely fell in love with Melissa’s photography and contacted her for more information. Melissa was very responsive and informative. Also, her pricing was very reasonable. We instantly hired her. She was very helpful with styling our photo shoot and even provided us with a style app. She kept in contact with us up until our photo shoot. She was so easy to work with and our photos are absolutely stunning. So glad we found Oakley Photography and would definitely recommend to others!" - Kayleen Clough
