Jessie Smith

Owner / Lead Videographer

From a young age growing up in Boston, I always loved to document life by creating home videos of my family and friends with my dad’s camcorder. It was so much fun being able to capture little moments and find ways to bring them back to life. After earning degrees in Media Communications and Spanish from NC State University, I followed a group of college friends and moved to Charleston in 2005 to be close to the beach. I fell in love with this city and knew this was where I would be for the rest of my life. Soon after moving to Charleston I began my full time career in video production and the rest is history!

Since filming our first wedding in 2011, Palmetto Wedding Films has served over 150 couples in SC, NC, GA and beyond. It has been an incredible journey connecting with so many amazing and unique couples. I absolutely love being able to capture all the big moments, little moments and everything in between, then bring all those moments back to life by creating heartfelt videos for our couples to watch over and over again.

Doing What I Love

Where I love to live

When I’m not preparing for, filming, or editing a video, I enjoy spending time with friends, family, my husband David and our dogs, cruising around Folly Creek on our boat, kayaking, paddle boarding, going to the beach, traveling and enjoying all the delicious cuisines and cocktails Charleston has to offer. Side note – if you’re ever in need of some suggestions on what to see and do in Charleston, I’m your gal!

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to create wedding films for the past 11 years and can’t wait to tell your love story!
