I lucked out marrying not only my best friend, but a great photographer as well. Bryan and I shoot every wedding and portrait session together. We enjoy getting to know our couples throughout the wedding planning process, and we approach weddings with a fresh style. We like to get everything right in-camera so that there’s no need to over-edit your images later. This allows us to provide our brides with wedding pictures that are natural, beautiful, and full of glowing natural light. We shoot 100% film for everything that we do. Film is a gorgeous medium to photograph with and it provides a dreamy and romantic look thats unlike anything else. We are based in Charleston South Carolina along with our beautiful dog, Rocco, but we are available for destination weddings worldwide.



Engagement Portraits start at $650

Our full-coverage wedding packages range from $4800-6400. Read less

She and Bryan (her husband and assistant) were amazing. Incredibly professional, warm and low-key they made our family feel at ease and were a seamless part of our big day. Loren herself is a sheer delight.

Loren and her husband Bryan were wonderful! From the moment we met them, we immediately felt comfortable with them; they are extremely professional and put you at ease and are laid-back at the same time. The day of the wedding, it became a little bit hectic as it normally does and I started to panic, but Loren put me at ease and worked around all of the craziness. We already have our engagement photos and those looked wonderful, and I cannot WAIT to see the finished wedding photos! Loren can also create many different types of pictures-contemporary, traditional, etc. I cannot say enough wonderful things! And they were extremely affordable and have many different pricing options to fit ANY budget. I would definitely recommend Loren and Bryan to anyone looking for wedding photography!

Loren and her husband were awesome and so easy to work with throughout the wedding process! The packages they offer and the prices for them were unbeatable, especially for the quality photographs they take and provide. Loren is so easy to get in touch with and responds very quickly! I'm waiting for my photos to come back but I've seen a few and they look amazing! I would definitely recommend her for your wedding!

We are so incredibly happy with our wedding pictures. Loren understood exactly the kind of photographs that we wanted and worked very patiently with us on our wedding day to make it happen. The pictures are beautiful and she was much more affordable than all the other photographers that we contacted. I cannot recommend her enough!!

AWESOMEEEE!!! My parents and my in laws were absolutely in love with Loren and her husband! They were efficient and it didn't take FOREVER for pictures (which was important to us) and they were simply amazing! They were flexible with missing people. We actually extended their contract just days before the wedding and they accepted with no hesitation! Loren already sent me some sneak peaks and they are amazing!!! I can't wait for the rest!!!!

Loren and her husband were absolutely fabulous!! As I told her, they were the best decision we made throughout our planning process and I could not have been more pleased. They had never shot at our wedding venue before so they came during our rehearsal the day before just to look around and get familiar with the space and to get our input on locations that we wanted to shoot at within the venue. Once Loren arrived at my hotel room so immediently began arranging my wedding day attire and took absolutely gorgeous shots of everything. She even climbed up on a table to hang my dress from a rather high curtain rod like it was nothing! Loren and her busband were wonderfull throughout my wedding and I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area!

Loren and her husband are a dream to work with! They are so flexible, easy going, and professional. At no point did I feel any bit of stress regarding the photography of our wedding day. They even take the time to conduct an engagement session prior to the wedding to get to know you and your photo style. Their work is gorgeous and Loren really has an eye for catching those special moments. I LOVED working with them and hope to be able to use them in the future for other types of special events!

Loren is a great choice for a photographer. Very professional, punctual, easy to work with, and incredibly talented. She did a great job of just going with the flow of the wedding without becoming that distracting presence (she waits on the wedding, not vice versa), and takes a TON of pictures. Also, she takes into account what you want, rather than taking charge and doing things you may not be interested in doing. We are very happy with our choice to have her as our photographer, and would recommend her to you!

Loren Routhier Photography was wonderful! I found her by luck on Google and could not have been happier. She and her husband went out of their way several times to help us and they were always very prompt and professional. Working with them was very comfortable and even my new husband, who doesn't like to take pictures, was at ease. Loren really went above and beyond and I would recommend her service to anyone. You won't find anyone better!

Loren was fantastic in working with Dan and me. She was very interested in my opinion and making sure I got everything I wanted from my wedding pictures. She was flexible with our schedule and was so great the day of our wedding with all our last-minute requests and ideas. We love our photos and there were so many where I look back and think, "I didn't even know she was there taking that pic!" It was such a nice variety of portrait style photos to capturing all those little spontaneous moments. I highly recommend her to everyone! ---Jessie Tulba

BOOK LOREN!
I was so happy with the way our wedding photos turned out. Loren was so helpful with everything. She even carried around my train all day so it wouldnt get dirty. All my bridesmaids were impressed. She was more than happy to carry around our lipglosses for touch- ups.
The album she designed for us was so beautiful. I loved the way she captured absolutely everything from our wedding day. She even gave us free gifts we werent expecting. She made our parents complimentary albums and dvds. I cant say enough good things. Thank you sooo much!

Thank you so much loren. We really loved our photography. I loved the way you spent time with us in the consultation to find out exactly what we wanted. And thats what we got! Me and my husband had so much going on the day of the wedding, and you kept us both calm and relaxed. We had so much fun with you.

I also want to thank you for being so fast. My husband and I were so suprised when you told us our pictures were up only DAYS after our wedding. We were able to view them while on our honeymoon!

I cant say enough good things. Thanks again,

I was thrilled with the services provided by Loren. She really captured my special day exactly how I wanted. My husband and I were so pleased with all the pictures, and the attention she paid to even the smallest details. I loved the orginality.
And even when I spilled the coffee I was drinking on my dress, Loren had a tide-to-go pen availabe in her purse! (none of my bridesmaids had even thought of that!!!)
I'm so glad we did the engagement portraits with Loren, too, because it made it that much more comfortable on the day of our wedding because she already knew us and what we were looking for.
I recommend her to any of you soon-to-be brides. I know you'll be just as happy as I am.

I just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. My wife and I are so happy with how everything came out. Loren paid so much attention to the little details that we would have probably forgotten by now.
My wife and I are so amazed at the pictures Loren captured, she was so discreet, we hardly knew she was there. She even brought a secondary photographer at no extra charge to us.
The album she designed for us was just the cherry on top. It was truly remarkable. Me and my wife kept flipping through all the pages again and again. Her friends are all jealous over that album.
Again, Thank you so much! I highly recommend you to anyone!

Im very happy with my choice to go with Loren. I was on a bit of a budget and I was worried I wouldnt get as much for my money, but she treated our wedding as if we were spending thousands. Loren worked hard to capture the wedding like I wanted and even spent time to get specific images I had seen in magazines.

I highly recommend this photographer!
