Nicole was so flexible and friendly. She understood that photography was important on our wedding day, but it wasn't the primary concern/ activity. She was quick, kind, and has an incredible eye. Our photos are breathe taking and her service is impeccable.

Heidi did a great job, we are so glad we chose her to be our wedding photographer! She was easy to communicate with from the beginning and she made my husband and I feel relaxed while we were taking photos. My favorite thing about Heidi was her ability to get natural looking shots of us even though we were posing for the camera. She gives good direction but also allows her clients to do their own thing, which makes for a natural looking photo. She got great shots of my husband and I, our bridal party, our families, and some fun ones of our guests at the reception. Heidi is very efficient and had the pictures ready for us to view within a week! I was impressed with her talent and ability to carry it out in a professional, timely, and creative manner. Thanks Heidi!

Jimmy is a super nice guy who was very attentive to what we wanted for our wedding photography. He shot some beautiful posed portraits along with some great candids. He always seemed to be close at hand during the reception when we asked for photos with specific guests and also took some beautiful shots of our decor and the setting. Spectacular job and a great value!

Shelby did an amazing job on my engagement photos which were taken here in Charleston recently and she will also be shooting my wedding this coming March! She has been fantastic to work with because she is very easy to communicate with, flexible, well prepared, patient, and fun! She will give you as much guidance as you need during the shoot, but is always open to new ideas. She goes above and beyond to make her clients comfortable and happy. She completely blew me out of the water with how beautiful my engagement photos turned out and I'm really looking forward to her shooting my wedding! Shelby Belle Photography is one of the best choices I've made so far in planning my wedding. I will definitely have her do more work for us in the future!!

Ruta was/is such a breath of fresh air and intentional artist in our wedding day experience. Getting an excellent wedding photographer was one of my biggest anxieties as I was a bride from the west coast planning a wedding on the east coast, and knowing most of my family would be experiencing my wedding only through the photographs taken. In addition, I was grieving that my niece who is a fabulous natural light Canadian photographer would not be able to attend and capture our wedding, so had a degree of skepticism while we explored photography professionals. Also, as the photographer follows you throughout the day in potentially intimate and emotional times, having a person(s) who you feel connection with and trust implicitly was so important to us! Ruta came alongside us on our special day with her assistant John. They were both a delight and knew their craft. Even when we were talking with Ruta in advance of our wedding, she made recommendations to adjusting the hours of our wedding to better maximize the best light we could expect on that particular day. We loved how she and her assistant just went about their work, but would ask and give direction as needed. The few photographs that we received (within a few hours of our wedding!!!) give us hope of a great portfolio to come. I love the use of natural light photography and have always been drawn to that art. If there was one thing I would suggest for improvement would be to have another person be around to make sure that collar points are where they need to be, hair is looking fresh, etc. as several of the photographs could have been improved with those details fixed. We would highly recommend Ruta and her crew. She's both a lovely person as well as knows her craft well. My niece who is a well-known and published professional natural light in Canada agrees that the photographs we've received so far are really great! You won't be disappointed! Thank you Ruta for helping to capture our special day that we had worked toward so hard for, in reality, so many years! You're the best and we appreciate you so much!

Erin was available from the very beginning, throughout the process and during the wedding. She was everywhere I turned ready to take a photo. Having someone who is calm, friendly and professional is a must! The portfolio speaks volumes of her work so we can’t wait to see the final product. Thank you Erin for making our Wedding day so enjoyable- looking forwards to the epic grooms shot!

It was a delight working with Emma. She went above and beyond to help capture our engagement moment and then she added a short impromptu engagement photo session on the end. She even enlisted the help of her husband and child to stand in and hold the perfect spot for the proposal. Emma is very professional, quick to respond, reasonably priced, and her work is amazing! I would recommend her to any and all for your photography needs. We could not be any more happy with our choice of photographer. We'll definitely be contacting her about our wedding photography in the coming months. Thanks, Emma!

LeeAnn is an amazing photographer. I am absolutely enamored with the pictures she took at my wedding in December. LeeAnn made sure she caught the essence of the day, and delivered fun, fresh and beautiful pictures that really captured the moment. I highly recommend her and can’t wait to book her for our Anniversary photo shoot in a few years.

I highly recommend Lea. We had a change of plans twice the day before the wedding due to weather and Lea rolled right along with it like it was no big deal and all she was concerned about was us. Lea was very professional, but at the same time she is very personable, which made us sooo comfortable. She did our wedding pictures and they turned out awesome. She's the very BEST and you will be extremely happy.

If you're looking for a high quality and affordable photographer in the Charleston area, look no further. She is professional, creative, and best of all down to earth! She'll make you feel comfortable while catching those special moments. Her work speaks for itself. Again, there are lots of options in Charleston and there are definitely MANY amazing, talented photographers to choose from. However, if you want super high end feeling images without taking out a second mortgage, Belisia is the way to go!

I think that this email I sent Adam sums up my experience: Good afternoon Adam, I pictures are amazing! I didn't grow up in a "photo-family" so I've never been a picture person. The idea of having pictures taken by a professional (save weddings/etc) is completely foreign to me. You've really changed my mind - you gave us a special experience and was able to capture it beautifully. Thank you for that. Your pictures are something I'll always enjoy! Best, Maggie

Victor did our wedding photographs last April. He was great I can't say enough about how pleased we were with everything. He went above and beyond to get some awesome shots. He took us around Charleston and knew right where to go to get very memorable and unique pictures. If you're looking to have some photography done you should consult with him, he was great to work with and very pleasant and professional.
