    (50 reviews)

    Joanne O.

    We had a small family wedding at our home. Roxy was wonderful. She guided us on the best angles, body corrections, background, wind and sun, so we were able to get the most fantastic professional pictures. I have so many to choose from. I'm thrilled. I would highly recommend Roxy and her team.

    (7 reviews)

    Ann Y.

    Our 8 year old beagle recently had major surgery and was diagnosed with cancer. After shedding many tears, we started chemotherapy treatments as soon as she recovered from surgery. While seeing the canine oncologist, we noticed many photos of pets draped in the arms of their owner in their final moments. We decided to document our sweet baby before the effects of her illness or treatment became apparent. We found Patti on Thumbtack, saw her pictures/reviews and contact her for an appointment. She was able to schedule us that weekend and recommended the Serenity Garden at Roper Saint Francis - a perfect choice! Patti took many poses, locations and even trotted around the grounds with us for action shots. She sent us the pics in 3 days! We are so pleased with the quality of the photos, the number of choices - but mostly the genuine feeling of the shots. A lot of them weren't posed, but as we were petting, kissing or loving on our baby. I'm excited to put together an album of these wonderful memories that we will most certainly cherish in the difficult days ahead. Thank you Patti!

    Excellent work! Worked great with my six year old to get great shots. He did a bunch of different poses which made choosing which to print very hard. Will definitely use him again for my picture needs. Very professional and highly recommend him to others.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Lea Austen Photography

(5 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I am so blessed to be able to work exclusively as a photographer. There is no greater joy for me than to be a part of capturing a lifetime event like a wedding or family reunion! I love taking photos of families and couples and being a visual storyteller. Through the years, I've been with some clients as their families grow and change. It is truly an honor and humbling as well.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was on the other end of the lens for years growing up. I was a professional model and actress in New York. Photography was my hobby and became my profession. Thanks to the help of other talented photographers; I learned by doing and sharing. I am so grateful for the people who helped and inspired me on my journey.

  1. #1 Elisabeth Nelson Photography

    (44 reviews)

    Danielle L.

    BEST PHOTOGRAPHER I HAVE USED...and we have had SEVERAL photo sessions! Elisabeth is a fantastic photographer.We booked a session for our anniversary trip to Charleston. Elisabeth took photos of us in downtown Charleston and at Isle of Palms. She took so many fabulous photos and captured many great moments of my husband and I. I have to say it is hard to do considering our photo session was the first time that we all meet. She is patient, fun, and amazing to work with. We enjoyed working with her and her pricing is very reasonable. She took so many great photos and she got them back to us in a convenient, timely manner. She did not push us to do all of those super uncomfortable poses and she did not rush us. She made sure we captured every photo that we wanted.She allowed us to loosen up, get comfortable, and be ourselves. This really shows in her work. We could not be more happy with our photos. I HIGHLY recommend using her as your photographer. She is AMAZING!!!!!!! :)

    Lauren was fantastic, she shot pictures of my 12 year old for some modeling pictures. The pictures are so beautiful, we had a lot of fun working with her, very impressed with her. My daughter is shy and quiet. Lauren had her skipping and smiling and laughing, and caught it all on the camera. I would recommend Lauren for any occasion to do your photographs.

  3. #3 King Street Photo Weddings

    (32 reviews)

    Tiffany G.

    Michel is a fantastic photographer! He went above and beyond for Matt and I from our 2 hour engagement photo session in Charleston to the 8 hours of amazing wedding photos he took at the Saluda Shoals Park in Lexington (Columbia), SC. Michel was very thorough and made sure that each photograph he took was exactly what we were expecting and always made sure that everyone was cooperating to get those perfect pictures. He was kind enough to give us a sneak peak each time just to get us excited about the great work he had done and keep us anticipating the others to come. Our day was made even more special by having Michel there to photograph such an important event for us. I am so thankful that I was able to find him and have him as our photographer! Michel your awesome and I hope that many others will be blessed to get your great service for their special day as well! Thanks for everything!!!! The only improvement I could say there may need to be, would be to understand in a smaller set wedding, these weddings are much more family oriented and are sometimes a little less organized or more an as you go type setting. In that case, I think the photography should be a little less organized photographs and a little more spontaneous photographing as things are going on instead of stopping every couple minutes etc. (which I think was partially my fault when it came to table photos) I realize, the more time you spend photographing especially during a reception time the easier it is for people to get impatient and start leaving because its taking up too much time, at least when you have limited time to work with. It also makes a big difference when it is a smaller set wedding where there is no alcohol and dancing mixed in so there needs to be more time where the couple is mingling and spending time with those who came. It is different in a larger wedding setting especially when you have more time to work with. Other then that, the wedding went great and Michel got all of the photographs that we requested and we were very pleased with how things turned out, especially with the quality of the photos!
