Behind the Camera

Behind the camera, computer, emails, and product production at By Bonnie Photography you will find me, Bonnie. Nice to meet you! Let me introduce myself.

Over 15 years ago my husband & I spent our first anniversary in Savannah Georgia and fell in love with the city. Little did we know then, that years later we would end up living in the area.


So here we are, northern transplants that have built our life together in the South. We have been living in South Georgia for over 10 years now. Our days are spent drinking massive amounts of coffee while working and volunteering. 


I have completely fallen in love with Savannah and its surrounding areas. I feel blessed to be surrounded by Georgia's country back roads, live oaks, and spanish moss. I try to showcase Georgia's beauty in all my sessions.

Since I have been both a tourist and a local, I can offer both perspectives in my work. I have lots of secret spots for photos and fun advice on where to go to get the best local coffee, onion rings, and funky shopping!  I absolutely love sharing my love for both Savannah and the Statesboro area with my clients.

I take that love and put it into my sessions. I try to give my clients a variety of images to showcase their personality and all that a location has to offer.


 I want to give you more than just an hour together. I want you to have a tailored photo experience with heirloom items to cherish forever! 

An incredible photographer who is well versed in all the Savannah spots, so sweet and patient, incredibly responsive & so very talented. My husband and I hired her to shoot our Mini Moon and she went above & beyond our expectations. All images were delivered within 1 week. It was so seamless, stress free and fun! A million thank yous to Bonnie for this wonderful experience - Erica Gee

I want my clients experience to be as seamless and stress free as possible. From booking, to planning, to parking and enjoying the moment and all the beautiful surroundings! 

I am here to help my clients with everything along the way. If you need help picking your location, an outfit, or with anything else. I have a small client closet I have created for my clients to borrow clothing from if they wish! I am also a certified bridal consultant meaning I am prepared to help my brides with almost anything! I get so excited to help plan a session or Elopement! I put my heart into my work and I love to help!

One of my biggest goals is trying to pull some personality out of you and put it in an image. As your photographer I got your back. Personally, I am someone who prefers to be behind a camera than ever in front of one! I get it! I understand if someone feels the awkwardness, and self-consciousness. The best part about my job is that I get to show you how amazing you and your connections are.


I believe everyone is beautiful and I would love the privilege to showcase that. I am passionate about my work being authentic and organic. I use real posing and real-life connections over fake filters and editing tricks to show you and your story!

I can't wait to photograph you surrounded by Georgia's beauty & charm! I look forward to meeting and working with you and your family!
