Welcome to Paula Player Photography team. My brother Pablo and I were born and raised in Colombia, South America and now make our home on the gorgeous South Carolina coast. This international experience enhances our photography because we’ve been exposed to so many fabulous cultures and understand the importance photos. With more than 10 year of experience in the wedding industry we love being part of our couples wedding day, sharing that special time in their lives and our photographs reflect this. Our team strives to create colorful, organic, and vibrant images that showcase each couples unique celebration. Our work has appeared in online blogs such as Style Me PrettyWedding Chicks and Wedding Row and also seen in printed publications like Charleston Weddings, Unveiled Weddings, and Martha Stewart Magazine. On a side note, we celebrate all the best things in life: traveling, dancing, music, a good conversation, great food, and the beauty in every day life.
