Verified review

Jolie was a very professional, personable photographer. Our pictures turned out so natural. She is very affordable and flexible allowing us to do newborn pictures, sibling pictures and family pictures. The turn-around was very quick (< 1 week) and were nicely touched up. We also very much appreciated getting access to all of the pictures.

Lindsay was AMAZING, the quality of her work is world class, she was courteous, kind and open to our picture suggestions. She was quick to respond to our last minute request for a family photo shoot when our original photographer had to cancel at the last minute. From start to finish she made the entire process fun easy and simple!!! She made the shoot a fun filled memorable experience. If you are looking for an awesome photographer look no further. The quality of our pictures were amazing and our family will cherish her work for the rest of our lives!!! DEFINATELY RECOMMEND!!

My dad booked EyeTonic Photgraphy for my wedding. Jimmy is an amazing photographer to work with. Super friendly, easy to communicate with and very flexible. He drove to Savannah from Charleston, he arrived earlier and stayed later then was originally booked to make sure he got every perfect shot. My husband and I got married at 7:30pm at the Cathderal of St. John's the baptist, so lighting was definitely a concern for us but Jimmy pulled it off! We got our photos back within a week and we were extremely happy with the results. I will definitely be using him again in the future and recommend to anyone!

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!

Belisia was friendly without being overly so. She gets to know your interests and preferences enough to tailor the photo shoot to you! She’s laid back to the point that her style will put you at ease. She’s not bossy or aggressive like some photographers. Very pleasant and likable. You can’t go wrong booking her for your shoot. Trust me!

I don't have enough words to describe how thankful I am to have had Meghan as my wedding photographer. Not only are her pictures artistic, original and beautiful but she was also such an amazing person to have with me on my wedding day. She kept me calm, kept me having fun and helped keep me from being completely overwhelmed. At the end of the day I had complete faith that she had captured all I wanted and more and I genuinely felt like I had made a good friend. A good friend that made my special day more fun and made me look and feel amazing! What more could a bride ask for?
