I’m Amy, a lifestyle photographer serving all your photography needs from family, maternity, and newborn shoots to wedding, branding, and more!

Hi y'all!  I’m Amy, a Navy wife, mom of four little humans and a multitude of fur babies. Having grown up in the Midwest, I attended college in Chattanooga, Tennessee (go Vols!), and after settling with my family in Charleston, South Carolina, I’ve fully embraced being a Southerner.

 With 13 years of experience as a photographer, I am most at home in my flip flops with a messy bun, my camera in one hand and an iced coffee in the other. One of my favorite aspects of my work is that it feels more like play- getting to know you all, swapping stories and sharing laughs as I capture life’s most special moments. 
I am so passionate about photography and have a wide range of offerings: from lifestyle and weddings to maternity and newborn, to headshots, branding and senior portraits. Please take a look at my gallery and then send an inquiry through my contact page so we can start planning your dream session- whether that’s here in Charleston, or at the destination of your dreams!

--Licensed for local beaches including Kiawah, also I hold a photographers pass for Boone Hall Plantation.

What a wonderful experience meeting Amy! She’s professional, but at the same time feels like a friend you’ve had forever. She came into our home just six days after we had our second child for an it-home newborn photo shoot. This mom and dad were extremely sleep deprived and adjusting to life. Amy knew just how to make us smile and stage us in the most perfect candid photos. I’m so grateful to her for offering me dresses from her client closet when I expressed not knowing what to wear. Also, I have to mention how great she was with understanding the schedule and fragile sleep and feeding of a new baby. We will absolutely be going back to Amy for future family photos!

Amy was incredible to work with on our 25th anniversary photo shoot. My husband wasn’t excited about the idea, but Amy made our evening session quick, with extreme attention to the detail of my requests. I am forever grateful for the pictures we got, which had a wide variety of styles and backgrounds in the beautiful city of Charleston. Thanks, Amy!

When I was looking for a photographer for my wedding, Amy was my first choice. She works so hard to make sure you are in the right pose for the perfect shot. She is so easy to get along with and makes you feel so comfortable while in front of the camera. She is thorough when she communicates so you know what to expect day of - no one has time for surprises when the big day comes! We received our photos faster than expected as well - and have received SO many compliments on them since. Photography is one of the biggest choices you make when planning a wedding - once the party's over your photos are what's left. We couldn’t have made a better choice with Amy. Thank you so much for capturing our love so beautifully.

Amy Lopez has been a friend of mine since 2007, I have watched her over the course of the last 15 years absolutely evolve in her craft of photography! Her knowledge, creativity, and split-second judgements are phenomenal. I waited 40 years to find the love of my life, my forever and a day!  She came to the venue prepared and ready with ideas in place on how to capture every possible special moment for my family! What a relief to have Amy there to capture it all. Our home is encompassed with her work! We will be using Amy again to help us celebrate our one year anniversary. Her ability to offer an extensive degree of options for those that desire high quality photography is OUTSTANDING!

We moved to the Charleston area not knowing anyone at all, and so when it came to suggestions on what to eat, see, and do, we had to go with what people said and just trust it would be good. Well, when we were looking for a family photographer we asked around and Amy’s name kept popping up. I didn’t find that to be a coincidence, so I went to her website, reached out to her, and I wish I could go back and thank every single person who recommended her! Our family photos that she took of us in downtown Charleston captured everything that we wanted and everything we didn’t know we needed. She has an eye for all things photography, whether it’s the backdrop from the natural beauty in the Charleston area, or timing our sessions to be just right for the golden hour, she even made our lifestyle photoshoot with our newborn such a breeze, she is seriously a photography wizard! Amy gives you her personal touch, designer eye, and has the most patience with the little ones. Her work comes second to none in the Charleston area. I always, 100 times over, recommend Amy for pictures. She is simply the best and I always look forward to our sessions together. No two sessions have been the same, and it gives us a piece of frozen time with these pictures. Book Amy, I promise you won’t regret it.

I met Amy in 2012 completely unrelated to photography and I could not be more grateful I did. Not only has she become like family to us, she is our go-to for all things photos: birthdays, holidays, our new home purchase, and she even did some real estate photography for my listings. She has a special way with kids, an amazing eye for the perfect lighting, and she’s just a good time! Every session with her is fun. Because of Amy, all of my walls are riddled with beautiful photos of the most special memories in my life that I get to proudly display as art. I will forever be grateful for meeting her, knowing her, and loving her.
