I’m Katie Hart and I’m the owner of Hart Photography and co-owner of Palmetto Duo!  I’ve had my business for 13 years and I’m excited to announce a merge of my two photographic adventures to include my single photographer packages and two photographer options within Palmetto Duo!  So you’ll find the same great packages and services as Hart Photography has always offered, but under a new name!

Palmetto Duo started as a collaboration between two professional photographers, Katie Hart & Dave Gilbert, to bring the most complete wedding day coverage to our brides.

While we both photograph weddings alone, we have realized by pairing our two styles and photographic visions we’re able to paint a more complete, even more beautiful story of your wedding day through working together as a team.

Whether using our two photographer or single photographer options, our goal is to tell the story of your unique wedding day and help you hold onto those memories forever.


Brian & Anna – Stone River, Columbia SC Wedding

Brian & Anna really wanted to focus on some dramatic photos of the two of them, so we planned a first look to take place at Trinity Baptist Church.  I love the quiet, intimate moments that we were able to capture in the church.  During the ceremony, everyone from their bible study came up on stage which made for a really beautiful show of community love for this couple. The reception was held at Stone River.  Anna’s special request was marshmallow roasting on the patio which made for some fun fireside photos.

Julian & James- Members Club at Wildewood, Columbia SC Wedding

Personalized weddings vows are always sweet, but when the groom tears up giving his vows to his new wife, you know those words come straight from the heart! The bride and her mom planned the decor for the ballroom at The Members Club at Wildewood and Natasha and crew from Opulence Events & Rentals, Ambient Media of Columbia, SC – Serving Event Planners, Venues, Weddings. (uplighting), and Rex Woolbright of Weddings by Woolbright (flowers) helped make their vision a reality!  I love the color scheme of the deep purples. We were able to sneak away with just the bride and groom around sunset and get some great shots on the golf course.  Julian said one of her favorite things about this venue was the grand staircase in the back where they had their ceremony. Bridal portraits were taken at 701 Whaley.
