Jolie photographed our wedding last week and was phenomenal. She was on time, professional, kind, and had the best ideas for photographing our event. She worked well with us to get an idea of exactly the type of photos we were hoping to get and really listened to us. We have seen a few photos from the event and are already blown away. I knew when we booked Jolie as our photographer that the photos would be beautiful but, we are still in awe by just how beautiful they have turned out. I can't think of a better photographer than Jolie. Love everything about her and her work!

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.

Roxy is fantastic. Roxy has been amazing to work with through out planning the wedding. She did our engagement pictures and we have had so many compliments on her wonderful work. I look forward to seeing the magnificent work she creates for our wedding pictures. Roxy is one of those photographers that you can put all of your faith in and just know you are going to get fantastic photographs.

Creative, unique and breathtaking are how I would describe the outcome of our family photos. Engaging, funny and easy going are how I would describe our photographer, Roxy. Without question we will be requesting to use her skills again.

Lindsay gave me a quote within minutes of my post on Thumbtack, and we had arrangements for a family photo shoot within a few hours. She had great suggestions for insuring that we were happy with our photo shoot on the beach and was happy to answer all my "mom" questions about preparing the kids (3 yrs old and 1 yr old). During the photo shoot she was totally prepared (even brought bug spray!), laid back, fun, creative and adapted to whatever my kids happened to be doing at the moment. She read my mind in terms of my "vision" and produced amazing photos that we'll truly cherish forever! We would definitely recommend her to anyone!

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!!

Lindsay was professional from my first interaction to the end. She was very understanding and patient in trying to nail down time and date. She was fast at responding to my questions and nailed the photo shoot. I have only seen 6 photos so far and we LOVE them all :) She picked a great location, was already there when we arrived and the dogs loved her! It was a great experience and I would book her again :)

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!

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!

I have nothing but great revues for EyeTonic Photography. Jimmy C captured our son's wedding to perfection from those candid shots to those truly elegant images. He's a highly skilled and professional photographer. You will not go wrong booking him for whatever your photography needs are.

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!!

Shelby was kind, professional, and fun! My family and I very much enjoyed shooting with her, and appreciated her direction during the session. We love the 20+ photos that we received from her (on such a cute flash drive)! If my husband and I lived closer to the Savannah/Charleston area, we'd probably use her services more regularly. Thanks, Shelby!

Shelby has provided excellent photographs of my daughter even before she was born. Shelby makes it feel like a natural experience and you always feel comfortable. My husband and I will continue to choose Shelby as our family photographer as long as she is a photographer. Can't wait for our next session.

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!

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!

Chris is fun, professional, and made me feel so at ease in front of the camera.

My family had their photos taken by Ashley Ann at Equality Photography, the photos turned out great and didn't appear posed like you see when you visit a photo studio.

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

Adam did a wonderful job photographing my parent’s 60th birthday party. He is a true professional. Everyone at the party commented on how he was everywhere and missed nothing! The photos were gorgeous and captured the true moments of joy on our faces. My favorite thing is the way he got people posing and then the split second after they stopped posing that captured their true personality. We loved every one of them and can’t wait to use Adam again.
