If you need a photographer for any type of shoot, you HAVE to get Jolie Connor! My husband and I had an intimate wedding ceremony in Charleston, SC and the photos Jolie took far exceeded our expectations! She responds quickly and professionally and posted sneak peaks for us the day of! She was so skilled in posing us, directing the shots, finding the light, everything! You definitely need to have her do your shoot :)

Jolie was the ultimate professional, as well as the creative photographer we hoped for when shooting our outdoor family photos. Jolie helped us to pick the location and worked expertly with our three boys to create beautiful shots we will cherish for a lifetime. I highly recommend Jolie!

I did not get lined up with a photographer until a week before the wedding. Roxy just happened to have that date free up, so we quickly set up a meeting and my husband and I were thrilled with her flexible and easy-going manner. On the day of the wedding she was prompt and very professional, but fun at the same time! She joined in conversations while taking pictures at the same time. Her work seemed so effortless, that we wished she could stay just to enjoy the rest of the day with us! And the pictures turned out fabulously!!! The entire family is so excited about them because she was able to capture candid moments that were very special to us. Thank you Roxy for your beautiful work, you really captured the spirit of the day, and we'll be coming back for family photos!! And the feeling is unanimous- you were such a blessing to Brandon and I!!

Nicole is an amazing photographer! Her work is outstanding and her personality makes her stand out even more! We had such a great time working with her!! My daughter had her senior pictures taken at Folly Beach! The shoot took nearly 2 hours and it was awesome! Nicole knew the area so well and she knew just where to go to get the best pictures! We HIGHLY recommend Nicole and High Cotton Studios for anyone looking for someone who does great work and is fun to work with, as well!! Thank you, Nicole :)

We are so glad we had an opportunity to work with High Cotton Studios for our wedding in October. We were initially attracted to this particular company due to their unique, vintage style of post-processing, and well thought-out compositions. Communication with the photographer was easy and straightforward. Interactions during event were nonintrusive and went smoothly as well. We highly recommend High Cotton Studios!

We hired Lindsay for a newborn photography session for our 3 week old daughter. We are so over-the-top happy that we can not explain. Lindsay kept in contact and was able to come to our home on a Sunday which helped with our schedule. She was SO patient with our daughter, allowing time for her to get settled and able to be posed. She brought props and headbands too and captured all of the photo ideas we had plus some! She sent us previews right away and we are over-the-moon! Lindsay is so talented and the photos are beyond our expectations. Don't second guess hiring her.. Do it!! You will be so happy you did.

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!!

What a pleasure it was to work with Lindsay! She was so professional, but she Was still so friendly. My daughter's senior pictures turned out beautiful in downtown Charleston and on the beach. We were vacationing from Arizona, so we didn't know where to go for the downtown photos. She knew exactly where to go and what poses would work. The editing was completed sooner than expected, mostly, I think, due to her enthusiasm about her craft. I highly recommend her.

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!

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!!

Choosing Upasana as our engagement photographer was the best and easiest decision of our wedding planning process. Although we had to reschedule a few times, and ended up shooting on a Friday night after work on a rainy and foggy night, the pictures came out AMAZING! Everyone keeps complimenting us on those pictures and I couldn't be happier. She is just simply amazing. From the beginning she made us feel so comfortable taking pictures in front of so many people and guided us through poses that looked and felt right. The last thing we wanted was to look fake or rigid in our shoot and thanks to her we didn't. I highly recommend her! Already booked her to shoot the rest Of our wedding events.

Monica S.

Verified review

We've had the pleasure of working with Upasana twice, and have been so pleased with the results both times. The first was a family shoot in the park and the second was our son's birthday. Communication was prompt and clear beforehand and she is always so easy going during the actual shoots. We had some ideas for both shoots, and she went right along with all our suggestions. She's genuinely excited about photography and it shows. Definitely recommend and we're looking forward to working with her again 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!

We had the opportunity to work with Heather, of Palmer Photography, the day after Thanksgiving. I can't say enough good things about working with her. She is a very special photographer. We had a group of ten, 6 adults, which are problematic in themselves, and 4 children of 4 months to 11 years. I found her ability to work with the children extraordinary. Her strength is with the toughest group, in my opinion. With the adults, she suggested flasks for the guys, knowing in our meeting I would be very controlling. I never took a sip during the shoot, because she had it all under control. I would recommend her highly. One of my daughters is thinking about using her in Atlanta, and she knows a number of locally based ohotographers there, but Heather was a level or two beyond. I have only seen 4 pictures so far, and they were wonderful. Heather goes through a whole editting process. She is an artist. My feeling is that she takes a good picture and makes it great. She spent twice the time with us then we spoke of. No rushing. We did do some posing, but it's not always the posing as to getting there, and I saw her camera in action. I can't wait to see the pictures. I am so sure they will be great, and in just talking to her and seeing her work with us, I am so sure our session will reflect our family. Heather is a PRO. I recommend her highly.

5 Stars, 10/10, 2 thumbs up... Heather deserves every great rating possible. I contacted her to shoot my proposal in Downtown Charleston and she was fantastic to work with. She responded quickly to every single question I had (which was a lot!). Her experience showed as she was able to give thoughtful recommendations to make sure the pictures were captured perfectly in the setting I wanted. And most importantly, the photos are OUTSTANDING! You can not go wrong with her, I'm lucky to have picked her out of all the other photographers available!

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!

James did an excellent job photographing our wedding yesterday in Beaufort, SC! Despite the winter storms, he made it! Most of our conversations leading up to yesterday were through emails since I was in another country up until a few weeks ago and he always responded quickly! On the wedding day, he was prompt, relaxed and professional. He fit right into the group and from what he has shown us already, his pictures are beautiful. We can’t wait to see the rest! We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and talented photographer to capture their special day! Thanks again, James!

James was great to work with. We were able to take some great pictures downtown with the hour we had. We walked all around downtown and James had a great eye for locations to take some great professional pictures. We finished up around 5 on Sunday, and he had 32 edited pictures to me the next morning. What a great surprise. I would highly recommend James for any photography needs you may have.

Nora (Leanor) is amazing!!!! My fiancé and I are from Chicago so I looked around and got many quotes and emails from other photographers. I was nervous being from out of town and not knowing any sights in charleston. When Nora emailed me back seemed down to earth, honest and friendly! Boy was I right! She was so helpful and even brought her hubby along on the shoot, which was nice for my fiancé to not have all women surrounding him! We were sweating so much they even went and bought us a towel so the pictures wouldn't look bad! Before we got there she was very thorough and was able to recommend a make up artist and even help me with my outfits! I can not recommend anyone more! I also needed a print right away due to my fiancé deploying and she was able to email me one. Customer service 100%, Value 100% and quality 100%. You can't go wrong with her.. wish she lived in Chicago so I could use her more often!

I hired Whitney with Don't Blink Photography to photograph my 3rd and final birth. We kept in contact from the time of booking at the beginning of October until delivery at the end of the month. I notified her on Thursday that my induction was scheduled for the following Sunday. Sunday morning she was at the hospital 45 min after I had contacted her to let her know we would have a baby in the next few hours. She was very professional and friendly and honestly helped keep me distracted over the next few hours as contractions increased. Delivery happened so quickly that it has become a blur in my mind. The pictures that we received were absolutely beautiful. She captured moments I will never get to experience again, but can still look back and remember the beauty of my delivery. I'd recommend this company to anyone looking to have their memories captured. She is worth every penny spent and more.
