Charleston, SC’s Premier Wedding Photographers
Since 2010

Welcome to STUDIO 1250
Capturing Memories that Last Forever

STUDIO 1250 Photography is the portrait and wedding photography studio of Philip Casey & Alex Holt.
We specialize in Charleston wedding photography, family portraits, and commercial photography based in Charleston, South Carolina. Also available for travel.


When we approach a wedding there are a few things we always try to do.

Our Approach


This means we capture love, laughter, and joy. We want everyone to look their best and we want to tell the best story we can through the photographs we take. So for us, this means we photograph happy, smiling, fun, and interactive shots of you, your friends, and your family. We document your wedding the way you envisioned it.  


Another goal for us is to tell the story of your day from start to finish.  Your story is your perfect dress, your sparkly shoes, that beautiful wedding location, your friends and family, getting escorted down the aisle, your first kiss as a husband and wife, your first dance together, the maid of honor’s toast, the crazy dancing… It’s your story and we want to capture all of it.


One of the most important things to us is capturing the love and connection you two have with each other.  We want to pull out the joy that is in your relationship. I mean, isn’t that why you’re here in the first place? 🙂 We’re going to get you two close together and get you laughing, kissing, hugging, and being romantic together. If you’re guy isn’t into that stuff, we’ll pull it out of him and turn him into a sweet guy for ya. Ha!


We love creating both punchy, epic wedding images and also soft, romantic images.  We include a good mix of both as we go through the wedding day.  We love the punchy images because they create an awe factor that makes your friends say “Oh WOW!” And then we’ll create those soft images that make them say “Aww, I love that one.” 


Throughout the wedding day, we’re constantly looking around and searching for priceless moments that happen like happy tears of joy, outbursts of laughter, a groomsmen’s pants ripping at the butt seam (haha true story), or a sweet kiss from a loving husband. We absolutely love these moments and we will be there to photograph them when they happen.


It’s important to us that you and your guests enjoy our presence.  We are always friendly, fun, and professional throughout your wedding day.  We are easygoing and personable and your friends and family will get along with us well.  Our past clients have really enjoyed having us there for their wedding day.

  • As my fiance and I began to plan our wedding, we knew that having a great photographer was immensely important to making our day memorable. We searched countless websites until we stumbled across Studio 1250. We could not believe what we were seeing when we looked through Philip’s portfolio. This was exactly what we were looking for. A Charleston wedding photographer who can tell a story through his images. We love the creative yet natural feel of Philip’s wedding photographs. We finally met Philip at our engagement photo session last fall. Initially feeling a bit awkward, Philip helped us to feel comfortable having hundreds of pictures taken of ourselves. Within a few minutes, I could tell that he truly loves what he does. Philip spent so much time with us that day capturing our story. The passion he has for his work is evidenced by the beautiful images we received. He also did my bridal portraits which turned out lovely! After working with him for our engagement pictures and bridal portraits, it was time for the big day. Philip and his assistant helped to make our wedding day so special. When we got our wedding photos back, I was in awe that they were able to capture so many fun, emotional, and special memories! Philip’s friendly demeanor and dedication to his work make him the best photographer in Charleston. We love our photographs and are so glad we chose Studio 1250!

  • My husband and I had Philip be a part of our special day a couple years ago. He is foremost an artist. He captured each detail, stunning portraits of my husband and I, and endearing candid moments of all my guests. Philip’s professionalism is top notch makes every part of the process stress-free. He arrived early for our initial meeting and on the day of the wedding. When the place we were supposed to initially meet was closed, he found an alternate location quickly and directed me to that location over the phone. He maintained a smile on his face the whole wedding day, despite hours of screaming and crying from my flower girl. He also worked with me on massaging the package deal to work within my budget and priorities. Also, he got my pictures back to me super fast! I cannot say enough good thing about Philip and his work. I highly recommend the use of Philip’s artistic and professional talents as a wedding photographer in Charleston!

  • My husband and I chose Philip as our Charleston engagement and Charleston wedding photographer because I loved the originality and beauty of his images. I knew we wouldn’t get stock wedding photography and I wasn’t disappointed. Philip was great to work with, and extremely generous with his time: our engagement shoot went longer than we had paid for, but he kept working with us until we were all satisfied. We adore those photos. At the wedding, he and his assistant Kyle handled a tight schedule and fading sunlight to produce lovely images. Several wedding guests commented afterwards that Philip seemed to be everywhere at once, capturing lots of fun moments on the dance floor. I highly recommend him as a wedding photographer in Charleston, and a photographer in general.

  • Studio 1250 and especially Philip Casey are fantastic. I found Studio 1250 following a Google search of Charleston wedding photographers and absolutely fell in love with the quality of the work based on his website alone. The prices were a bit higher than most, but you get what you pay for. After I talked to him on the phone, I knew he was the best photographer for us based on his personality and honesty. He agreed to stay in Hilton Head the night of our wedding and meet us at sunrise the next morning for a trash the dress session. He is truly accommodating and it’s obvious he has a passion for his work. In the short amount of time he was with all of us, we were calling him family. We got a glimpse of the wedding photos a few weeks after the wedding and had a CD with 500+ phenomenal pictures within a month following the wedding!! Philip managed to never get in the way but capture the moments to portray the love and happiness of the night and during the trash the dress session. The trash the dress pictures were so romantic and fun and had us laughing and enjoying ourselves the entire time. Philip is an honest person and very easy to work with. The pictures speak for themselves! We’ve already booked him to come to Kentucky for our maternity pictures in January!…
