After being booked and having to tell clients “no” that wanted beautiful, candid images on Hilton Head Island, SC I decided to make Kit Carper Photography a family affair !! Ronda joined the team and man, do we have fun together !! As family, it has been so rewarding for us to be a little part of documenting simple or extravagant moments on our island. We are able to serve so many more amazing couples & families on the beaches of Hilton Head, making magic ! 


Kit Carper
Lead Photographer/Owner
Ocean lover & Island girl 

I’m Kit Carper! And 10 Years ago I fell in love with this tiny island and 5 years later I decided to call it home. After vacationing on Hilton Head with my highschool sweetheart (now husband), from when we were 14 years old we knew it was where we wanted to plant our roots.

With an inert passion for the beach, sunsets and gorgeous landscapes of Hilton Head, becoming a photographer here was second nature! Nothing brings me more joy than being able to capture photos of families and couples while they are enjoying Hilton Head as much as I do. 

Whether it’s a family session during sunset, or a sunrise proposal, pairing these life events with the beauty of Hilton Head creates stunning content to last a lifetime. 

More importantly than delivering pretty pictures, I strive to deliver an experience, one full of laughter, candid beauty, and the effortless preservation of memories to look back on. 

When I’m not behind the camera you can find me out on a boat with my husband, drinking wine during sunset, or playing with my Australian Shepherd Buoy.

Let’s connect today and create some magic. 


Ronda Carper
Partner Photographer
Super mom & Camera nerd  

Ronda started out taking photos of her family & quickly became an expert with the camera, for pure love of photography!  As my business has grown, Ronda has joined my team as my partner photographer enjoying her evenings on the beach meeting families from all over the country & capturing their sweet memories. 

On the weekends, you can find her and I tag-teaming weddings and elopements on gorgeous Hilton Head Island, SC, having the best time being a part of your dream day!  Ronda has been an islander for decades & loves this beautiful place we call home! She will be sure to make you laugh during your photo session!

Miniature australian shepherd hug-giving expert   

This little guy is my main co-worker during the day and keeps me on my toes ! He loves the ocean as much as me and will do about anything for a game of frisbee. I can’t begin to tell you how many of my clients have australian shepherds -- Who doesn’t love bonding over dogs?
