Thanks for stopping by to learn more about our studio.
I'm Shirley Wedra, the Owner and Lead Photographer at Fort Mill Photography. Being a wedding photographer is a challenge for sure. There are time constraints, lighting challenges and a huge amount of pressure and oftentimes only one chance to "get it right". Personally I love the challenge of doing my absolute best to walk away great images under adverse conditions. I love the fast paced environment, the different locations it takes me, working in all different types of lighting situations and capturing a moment that the client didn't get to see from your perspective or your artistic viewpoint. I also value the friendships that are formed and all the wonderful people I meet along the way. I enjoy getting to watch them start families and photograph those milestones as they grow. It's a win win for me and I absolutely LOVE what I do.
I certainly can't do it all on my own though. I have a couple of very talented local photographers who work with me on a permanent part time basis for all of our weddings that require two photographers and I am very blessed to have them.
We’ve photographed well over 400 weddings and numerous portrait sessions since the opening of our studio in 2003 and have become one of the most trusted and well-respected photography studios in the area. We are humbled when we say we couldn't be more proud of the extraordinary reputation that our studio has achieved.
Our home office is located on a Farm in York, South Carolina where we shoot a lot of our outdoor/rustic portraits and elopements.
