hello friends

East Emerald Photography serves the Grand Strand & Beyond with timeless photography.
We capture weddings, couples & families from the beach to the country,
Not local to the southern coastal area? I love to travel! lets chat


I am Devanie McCartney. Your lens lover and sandy toes expert. In my world I see every moment in life for what it could be as a photograph & it makes for an amazing view. My husband, baby girl and boston terrier/pug relocated to Myrtle Beach 4 years ago and never looked back!

I could write a paragraph about me and my journey, but I want to hear about yours.

Knowing you allows me to capture every emotion, moment and detail.

Documentary, journalistic & lifestyle are just a few ways to describe our sessions and weddings. No props, no sets, just real life. Your memories deserve to be in the spotlight, they need to be documented, shared and displayed. We have heirloom quality products like albums, canvas wrapped prints, metal prints & framed art. Our sessions are unique, laid back and a little silly. Your experience with us means just as much as your photos.
