Reviewed On 5/23/2022 by Maddie L
Honestly, I've been procrastinating writing this review because I don't know how to adequately and eloquently summarize how incredible Aaron and Jillian are!! First of all, they are genuinely kind and caring individuals. We went through covid p...
ostponements and a venue change and Aaron and Jillian helped coach us through so much of it (which is not their job at all!!). They are true professionals and were always quick to respond to any emails, texts, or calls. Furthermore, the way Aaron and Jillian work together is absolutely seamless. We were attacked by nats on our wedding day, fought through humidity, potential storms, and wind; however, you would NEVER know by the way Aaron and Jillian worked and how our photos turned out. Speaking of, our engagement and wedding photos are more than we could have ever asked for! Aaron and Jillian's style is timeless, and I know we will cherish our photos for a lifetime. They also turned around our photos so quickly and provided an abundant selection of photos, making sure to catch every single little detail and moment. I genuinely could go on and on, and this truly does not do them justice, but the net of it is that they truly are the best of the best!!

Aaron and Jillian are the pro’s pros of wedding photography. They had incredible social media, were immediately responsive when we inquired with them, and were detail-oriented and organized (my husband and I are both doctors and are quite parti...
cular). But their secret talent lies in their incredible personalities. First, they will make you want to be friends for life. Second, they are calm, collected, and reassuring on your wedding day. Through their A&J magic, they will help you relax in front of the camera and show off your best selves. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they are an adorable couple who will also model poses for you! Finally, the actual shots they prepared were beautiful. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. Their turn around time was also insaneeeeee (under 2 weeks). We loved them and happily, strongly recommend them to you.

Wow, I don't even know where to begin - Aaron and Jillian are not only the most talented, thoughtful and skilled photographers, but they are also the kindest, most fun and genuine couple that you hope will be your friends. The only way I think...
I can try and bottle up my admiration and gratitude for them is by saying that honestly if they hadn't been available on our wedding day, I would have worked around their schedule! They do such an incredible job making sure that you feel comfortable and showing you how best to pose - our engagement and wedding photos were more than I could have ever dreamed of! They have a contagious energy of joy that surrounds them and they bring out the best in everyone - myself, my husband, our wedding party and all of the guests. Every pose and moment captured felt so natural and yet so sincere. Everyone couldn't stop raving about how fabulous and fun Aaron and Jillian are. In more ways than I probably know, they saved the day from minor and major hiccups, such as driving me, my mother and my sister to the venue when the trolley was delayed in traffic! Even when things could have been stressful, they were effortlessly cool and you can trust that they will not only make this night the night of your dreams, but capture it so beautifully so you can have the memories for years to come. I cannot thank you both enough, Aaron and Jillian. We feel beyond grateful to have met you both and to have had the opportunity to work with you on the most important day of our lives.

Aaron and Jillian are hands down the best wedding photographers in the business!!!! What is more, they are such gracious, lovely, and kind human beings. First, it must be said that they are unbelievably talented and hard-working. They deliver...
ed our wedding gallery full of 1442 frame-worthy photographs within 3 weeks of our wedding – yes, you heard that right, 1442 stunning, immaculate, glorious photos mere weeks later! These photos truly tell the story of wedding day and capture so many subtle moments that went by in such a blur. In addition to their talent, they are consummate professionals. From the moment we booked them, they were already thinking about the timeline – sunset, the golden hour, and how to document every last detail. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, they were extremely engaged, receptive, and responsive. When I was conflicted about bridesmaids' dresses, Jill immediately responded to my inquiry and helped me determine what would look best with the vision I had created. On the actual day, Jill functioned seamlessly as the "master of ceremonies" (in concert with our wedding planner) because she helped keep everything on schedule from a photos perspective so that we could actually savor each moment. She and Aaron managed to wrangle my very large family, an impressive feat in and of itself, and I was particularly impressed how Aaron handled multiple ring-bearer toddlers melting down and diffused the situation so that my three-year-old nephew not only was calm enough to pose for a photo, but eagerly wanted to pose for one. Jill and Aaron were gliding around our venue, managing to somehow be in multiple places at once, while also simultaneously blending into the party (they even looked like wedding guests, matching the attire of our wedding). At the end of the night, Jill sprinted from the upstairs balcony into the street to get multiple angles of our exit because that is who she is - someone who will go above and beyond for you. And I just love that they are a husband-wife duo because they work so effortlessly with each other that you forget you have multiple cameras on you. They are the ultimate hype squad and make you feel so comfortable and beautiful. By the end of our portraits, I was halfway convinced that we were seasoned models thanks to their praise. Seriously, I cannot say it enough - they are PROS. Beyond that, they also care so much and are so invested in helping make your wedding day the most magical day possible! And most of all, they are genuine, kind, and fun people, who celebrate your happiness like the oldest of friends would. We feel extraordinarily fortunate to have had Aaron and Jillian as our wedding photographers and will cherish the photographs and memories for decades to come. Simply put, if you are lucky enough to book them for your wedding, do it immediately – it will be the best wedding decision you make!

t immediately felt like we had somehow been friends forever. Both Aaron and Jillian have an incredible way of making everyone so comfortable in front of the camera, which translates to beautiful and natural pictures. When we go through our pictures from our wedding day, it is almost like we are reliving all the moments, which is so important when the day itself goes by way too fast! It rained almost the entire day and my biggest concern was not getting the pictures I wanted, but Aaron and Jillian quickly shifted gears and utilized areas inside of our venue to still give us all the pictures we could ever want. And in case you need an up-do in the middle of your reception because you are sweating with your hair down, look no further because Jillian is your girl!! She pulled me away off the dance floor for a couple minutes and I came back with a whole new look! Lastly, as the rain derailed our boat exit, Jillian and Aaron offered to drive us to our hotel in their brand new beautiful white SUV. They are wonderful photographers and humans. Thank you for everything!

Where to begin!?!? I truly don’t think that words can adequately describe just how fantastic Aaron & Jillian are as photographers and as people. From our very first conversation, we knew we made the right choice, but little did we know just h...
ow awesome working with them would be. Our engagement session felt more like a double date than a photography session! They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, and it felt like we were hanging out with two longtime friends the whole time. We are definitely NOT naturals in front of the camera but Aaron and Jillian made it so easy. They gave us such clear directions and would often model the poses for us which was SO incredibly helpful! We were absolutely blown away when we received our engagement photos. We loved every single image and they all had such a light and airy feel to them. We couldn't have been happier! When our wedding was postponed twice due to the pandemic, we absolutely knew they were the one vendor that we couldn't live without. In fact, we were prepared to change our wedding date if they hadn’t been available for our new one!! Our wedding celebration ended up being 13 months later than originally planned, but it was so worth the wait! Throughout the entire day Aarron and Jillian were professional, efficient, detail oriented and so much fun to be around. Multiple wedding guests commented on how Aaron & Jillian seemed to be everywhere, capturing absolutely everything, but without the paparazzi vibes (lol) and we totally agree!! We are still in awe of our wedding photos. Every single image is stunningly beautiful and they truly captured the genuine joy and love that we felt throughout the entire day. There is absolutely no way that we are ever going to be able to choose just 100 photos for our wedding album. Our photos are just that good y'all! We love them ALL! In conclusion, we hope it is clear by now that we are absolutely OBSESSED with Aaron and Jillian. Book them ASAP. It will be the very best wedding decision you make.

This review has taken us way too long to write simply because we’ve never felt like we had the words to do it justice. Simply put, hiring Aaron and Jill was the BEST decision we ever could have made for our wedding!
While Aaron and Jill are i...
ncredibly talented (I mean just look at their albums are you even kidding me?), they are far more than wedding photographers. From the minute we started working with them, we felt like we had made two new great friends! They genuinely want the very best for their couples, and do everything possible to make your special day incredible.
We would have been perfectly happy with great wedding shots to look back on and remember forever, but what we got with Aaron and Jill was so much more. From the minute they showed up to the bridal studio on the morning of my wedding, I was immediately relaxed. They have this infectious joy and lightheartedness that radiates throughout a room and makes everyone from the hair stylist to the MOB calm and excited. Jill made the getting ready process so much fun and gave amazing advice that made the rest of the day a breeze (and kept my hair from blowing in it!). They carried that calm and joyful attitude through the entire rest of our special day and were there at each turn to anticipate and capture every wonderful moment.
They bring so much joy to what they do and it shines through in their work - Our wedding photos are unbelievable! If you have the chance to work with Aaron and Jill, don’t even question it! Just call them and if you’re lucky enough to book them for your wedding, it’ll be the best decision you could possibly make as a newly engaged couple!

Aaron and Jillian shot our November wedding at Lowndes Grove in Charleston. It was truly a blessing to have found them – A&J are professional, extremely fun, and a dynamic duo and it’s amazing how seamlessly they work together. They seem to be ...
able to read each other’s minds when shooting and both have a strong knack for anticipating and capturing special moments. You really are hiring two “lead” photographers with A&J, so every image is exceptional. The fact that they’re a husband and wife team really works to their (and your) advantage and results in a fun, laid-back environment where they’re bouncing ideas off each other, demonstrating poses when necessary, and making subtle adjustments to make sure they don’t miss a thing. They had to deal with several challenging circumstances during our wedding, including rain, a wedding dress zipper malfunction during our first look, and a few unique subjects (namely our dog and our two year old nephew) and regardless managed to adapt flawlessly and capture exceptional shots. I’d imagine they have worked at nearly every venue in Charleston and know how to get all the right shots to make the venue / setting shine regardless of the conditions – that was certainly true at Lowndes Grove!
Beyond their skill as photographers, Aaron and Jillian are really great, down to earth people. Because of COVID, we never actually had a chance to meet in person before the wedding, but as soon as they arrived on wedding day it was like we’d been friends with them for years. They’re extremely easy to work with and make you feel very comfortable while being photographed. Given their great personalities, they blended right into our wedding and got every shot we could have asked for, from formal portraits to candid reception photos. We got compliments from almost every guest we talked to afterwards about how fun and professional our photographers were, which speaks volumes about them. A&J are very passionate about what they do and that clearly came through in their interactions with everybody at the wedding and in the photos they created. They also showed up extremely prepared, having worked with us to put together shot lists well before wedding day so that we didn’t need to think about anything on the day of – A&J managed it all and didn’t miss a thing.
Aaron and Jillian are kind and caring people that the Charleston wedding community is very lucky to have and we can’t recommend them more highly.

Aaron and Jillian delivered our album and I cried at how perfect every single photo was and how they captured EVERY PHOTO I could have wanted. All of our guests said they could not believe how you couldn’t even tell that it rained on our wedding day. They are not only the most down-to-earth couple, but they are true professionals. The two of them take the time to get to know you as a couple and they capture every single moment of the wedding day. My mother was so upset she could not have a cookie table and she had to put her homemade cookies into a box instead as a favor. Aaron and Jillian took the time to take every single cookie out of the box and take a photo of them, without us even asking. I cannot perfectly articulate how amazing they are as wedding photographers. They even defended my wedding dress from muddy sheep - not even kidding. Trust me, you would regret not hiring them because your wedding photos are a lifetime memory and we are so thankful our photos were with Aaron and Jillian. Now to just figure out how we can hire them again! ☺️❤️

However, my planner (Samantha Anderson) assured me that it wouldn’t be an issue and she was right! Jillian kept in touch with me via email and social media in the months and weeks leading up to our wedding, to the point where I felt like I had already met them when our wedding day arrived. When we did finally meet in person, I knew instantly that if we lived in Charleston, we would be friends.

My recommendation to any couple would be to consider your photographers' personalities when hiring them, in addition to their work. Your photographers will be with you, your spouse and your closest family and friends all day - so you want to make sure that you get along with them! I can't imagine anyone not getting along with these two. My bridesmaids wanted to be Jill's best friend immediately. Lastly, their pictures are amazing! I am a very tough photo critic and I loved every shot they sent us. They take beautiful portraits, lovely decor shots and plenty of candid photos for a perfect gallery blend.

Coming from New Jersey- we browsed photographers online and Aaron and Jillian's photos just stood out to us. They are vibrant and bright and just soak up every moment!

They are extremely responsive via email and answer all questions/concerns so promptly- even when they have their "out of office" email they still respond letting you know when they will be back!
They blended RIGHT in and took the most natural and candid pictures ever. Jillian gives the best tips on how to make the photo better - popping a leg or leaning in closer etc. - Our entire wedding party, family and friends had a blast with Aaron and Jillian.

Aaron & jillian nailed it!
We started our adventure with Aaron and Jillian a year ago when we booked them (upon recommendation from our epic wedding planner: S/O Brooke Southern/Miller @ Boutique Planning) for our December Wedding. We knew we ...
had picked the right people from day 1 when Jill asked for our love story and wanted to follow us on Instagram - it felt like they truly wanted to get to know us and understand our relationship.
Our engagement pictures were included with our package and they were able to squeeze us in (during what was likely a crazy wedding season! ) for an October afternoon while we were in town for some planning. For two people that get a little “awkward” in front of a camera, Aaron and Jillian made us feel so at ease. We thought it would be so weird being all lovey-Dovey in front of other people, but they made it so fun for us and we just so enjoyed spending time with each other, and them, perusing the streets of Charleston. Jill had even reached out beforehand to check what kind of vibes we were going for - I told her cute greenery/alleyways and historic charming homes (always enchanting) and they took us to the perfect spots! We were so happy with how our engagement pictures came out and how “easy” they made it, that any anxiety we had about our pictures for the big day fell to the waist side.
Fast forward to our wedding, these two really made our day so freaking special. They somehow perfectly managed to balance being completely invisible at times (capturing every image without ever interrupting or intruding), while also directing us and helping create a seamless flow for the entire day. (small side note, but I should also mention, that both Jason and my parents are divorced, so their direction during family pictures was invaluable and made our stress dissipate. ) So many guests came up to us exclaiming how wonderful our photographers were - and to think that was BEFORE they even saw the actual pictures! That was just based on their energy and personalities. Having Jillian and Aaron part of our big day was not only a joy, but sincerely a pleasure. And arguably most importantly, the pictures below speak for themselves, but between the poses, color, editing, and scenery... ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS - these guys totally crushed it. The perfect mix of candid and classic shots. We are so thankful to have these pictures to relive the memories of that special day forever.
On a personal note: Aaron and Jillian, THANK YOU TWO! We know you see lots of clients, but you made us feel so special. From the small moments like chatting with Jill before the pictures of me getting into my dress with my mom/aunt, to the pictures all across Lowndes Grove plantation and downtown Charleston - we loved having you two be the ones to capture our love in hundreds of small snapshots. And seeing you two together enforces our belief in true love! You work so beautifully well together - between the small gestures: “love that shot” or “great catch”, to the just general amount of respect you have for each other - so special and cool to see (especially given that Jason and I worked together for 6 years!)
To anyone looking to book Aaron and Jillian: please don’t hesitate. You are in the most loving, trusted hands. They will make you look and feel beautiful and on top of the world on your big day!

d the camera who captured those sweet moments. The very first impression we had from their online presence, we thought, “Wow, their photos are incredible, fresh and vibrant - AND they are husband and wife?! It can’t get better than that.” Aaron and Jill - from the MOMENT we spoke on the phone, we knew you’d be the ones taking our wedding photos! Jillian was super organized from the first conversation and explained how her and Aaron photograph a typical wedding day. She was so positive and upbeat about her passion for photography and weddings. Both my husband and I are the most indecisive people ever but we knew we were 100% certain on having them as our photographers the moment we hung up the phone! Since we are from out of state, we asked Aaron and Jillian if they’d be open to grabbing a coffee this past December while we were visiting town to get to know them before the big day. We were honored and truly humbled when they invited us over to their famous #homeonhickory for coffee rather than meeting us out (ONLY in the South would that type of hospitality happen, am I right?!) When we arrived, they greeted us with the warmest welcome, as if we’ve known them our entire life! We were so lucky to sit in their kitchen eating pastries and sipping coffee as we got to know the people who would be taking photos of our big day. They are the real life Barbie and Ken but even more beautiful and kind! I truly could chat with them for hours about all kinds of topics! As the wedding date got closer and closer, I ran a TON of silly questions past Jillian as I greatly valued her opinion. She was always super quick to respond to me, even when traveling! She always provided me with an honest answer, and her answers were never short, which just shows how much she cares for her clients. As the wedding day FINALLY arrived, I was so excited to see Aaron and Jill! They were extremely professional and calming during a very emotional day. Jill wore a dress similar to my bridesmaids dresses which I thought was so kind as it made her blend in more with the crowd - and many of my guests brought this up thinking the same thing! Aaron looked very professional as well! They truly are the definition of a power couple and work SO well together! They helped guide us in certain poses and you could tell they bounced their talents and ideas off of each other, in the most positive and professional way. They handled big groups of families of all ages very well and made everything feel so seamless. We’ve already received 2 “sneak peaks” of our photos and tears immediately filled our eyes. Aaron and Jillian know what they are doing and my advice for their future bride and grooms is to just trust them because they are the BEST! We couldn’t have asked for better photographers than Aaron and Jillian. They were the perfect duo to guide us on day one of marriage and for that I can’t thank them enough!

hat I had made the not only the right choice, but the best choice. I am not photogenic, nor do I like being in front of a camera. Jillian made me feel so incredibly comfortable. My bridesmaids are still talking about how they want to invite her to photograph our whole lives... and when I say that I mean hang out with us every weekend. She has a way of becoming part of the group and all the while capturing EVERY SPECIAL MOMENT. Aaron was with the boys for the first part of the day and they had a blast laughing with him. My husband told me there were times he forgot that Aaron was the photographer, it felt like he was just one of the guys. Fast forward to getting all of my pictures.... LET ME JUST SAY.... I saw the album as a whole and it took my breath away. I am not sure how they managed to capture every single moment, but they did... and MORE. The pictures are something I will cherish forever and I, without a doubt, had the ABSOLUTE BEST, POWER COUPLE/PHOTOGRAPHERS. One thing that stuck out to me was how well they worked as a team. Not only are they one of the sweetest couples I have ever met, but also I consider them to be friends. They were one of the most integral parts of the most special day of my life. If you choose A&J you will not only be blown away, but rest assured that you will have the most amazing photographs and memories to last a lifetime. I know that one day my grandchildren will see these pictures, and I have Aaron and Jillian to think for that. Trust me when I say there is only ONE CHOICE when it comes to wedding photoraphers... and that is Aaron & Jillian. I would choose them again every time!

I’m not a girl who does her hair and makeup most days but Jill took care to remind me to throw on some lipstick and fluff my hair “just right” to make my photos better than I could have ever dreamed. Lastly, they don’t often post “Dance Floor” photos so I was a little concerned that once the lights went down our A+J quality photos might be done for the day, but I can promise you that is not the case! One in particular is of me, my bridesmaids, and our dads... I remember thinking after we lined up and they snapped the shot that we should’ve gone off the completely dark dance floor to where there was more light. I have no clue how they did it, but the pic is awesome and one we will cherish! The other “dark” picture they got for me was of the full moon we had! They were so careful to fulfill every request we had. This is a day we will reminisce on forever, and I’m so grateful for the photos to remember it by.

S-T-E-L-L-A-R and every other synonym sums up Aaron and Jillian ("A&J"). A&J are a true dream team! Our wedding photos are amazing! I wanted romantic, light shots and A&J over delivered. They made us very comfortable (most friendly couple ever)...
and gave terrific direction (made us look like we had been modeling as a couple for years). They knew all the good spots at our venue. I provided a list of special shots to A&J and they captured every single one perfectly as well as a few extra special ones that were not planned. They provided all of our photos three weeks after our wedding (give or take). I went over my budget to lock in A&J to shoot our wedding. They are worth thousands of dollar more than we paid them to shoot our wedding (seriously). Our dog was in our wedding. A&J are great at shooting dogs and rolling with whatever the dog does (and making it look great in pictures).
Quality: Exceptional - Most perfect photos
Responsiveness: Almost Immediately
Professionalism: They have it!
Value: Would have paid more
Flexibility: Yes! Our wedding was cold and windy but A&J were decked out in their winter gear and made our photos look like our wedding was on a 70 degree day

ment session turned out to be enjoyable! We were elated when we saw our photos a short time later and there was no evidence of our normally "awkward in photos"
selves! Then, on our wedding day, we became even more aware we hit the wedding photographer jackpot! They were at the house where the bridesmaids were getting ready bright and early. They were organized and calm and their attitudes helped make everyone less nervous. They helped keep us on schedule, had light hearted conversations that made everyone laugh and got photos of all of the moments I requested simultaneously. Then they REALLY worked their magic at the ceremony and reception. They are so comfortable with each other and the way they joke and interact with their subjects and each other makes the smiles in their photos look VERY natural and because they ARE natural! There are a good number of our family members who make it difficult to take their photos. Without naming names, a certain family member of ours who is known for being a huge pain in photos, told me on three different occasions how great our photographers were and, I'm quoting, "the fact that Jillian isn't bad to look at helps, too." It is true that she is very pretty, but I think it's her jovial attitude and infectious smile that won over our most difficult family members. The reason, I'm focusing on Jillian is because she took a majority of the posed family photos. I'm not actually positive which photos were taken by Aaron and which by Jillian because they are both super talented and all of the photos are equally exceptional! I think Jillian told me that day that Aaron was taking the detailed shots of the venue, which were also gorgeous! I've tried to take photos of decor details without a human subject and those are often just as difficult as getting a photo of one of my cranky family members! It's not like other photographers I've seen that have an assistant with them that you aren't sure if their work will be as good as the main photographer. You get two "main photographers," both of whom are great at what they do! Also, I have to mention, Aaron and Jillian send out a questionnaire before the wedding asking for specific photos that are "must haves." After my sister's wedding photographer got about 4 photos of my mom and 2 of me, my mom and I REALLY appreciated this thoughtful questionnaire! Then on the day, they had a copy of our answers and they checked off each photo as they got it! So they definitely got every possible combination of family members we had requested plus they got so many other photos that we hadn't even thought to request. Long story short, if you want two extra guests that make your wedding more fun for everyone and they happen to be the all around best photographers - book Aaron and Jillian! You might want to check their availability before you set your date and then choose based on the days they have- they are that good! Your wedding photos are so important and you can trust Aaron and Jillian to deliver everything you imagined and so much more!

We chose the package with 10 hours on our wedding day + an engagement picture session. I'm so glad we did - our engagement pictures were amazing. We wanted pictures downtown in Charleston, and they know the city so well, they took us to a bunch of cute spots. Our friends & family loved our engagement pictures.
Our wedding was last week, and we were blown away by their day of management. We know the pictures will be great, but we really appreciated how they managed both time & all of the people on the big day. We had some last minute schedule changes, and some oopsies (my dad went to the venue instead of coming to where I was getting ready, and I forgot the wedding bands and we had to go back and get them) and they were very calm and helpful in adjusting and letting us know what we did & did not have time for. Any time we had to make a decision because we were short on time, they let us know what our options were so we could make the choice for what photographs we wanted.
One thing that we never thought of but were extremely grateful for on the day of our wedding was Aaron & Jill's ability to communicate how to get the best poses. If we were posing, Jill would tell me exactly how to turn/tweak my arm and I felt like I was in great hands knowing my pictures would come out perfect. I would hate to get pictures back and think my arm looked weird or something, and with Jill giving direction, I had no worries that was going to happen.
We really can't say enough good things about Aaron & Jillian. They're photos are amazing, and just as important, they are wonderful to work with. They also travel for weddings - we would highly recommend booking them no matter where you're getting married!!

They took the time to go through all the important details beforehand and made sure they knew what was important to us specifically, but were flexible on the day to change it up when necessary. Jillian went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. At one point on the morning of our wedding, Jillian even jumped into tackle coordinator-type tasks - keeping us all on schedule when the actual wedding planner was called away and taking the time to help one of my bridesmaids (who had a new baby) figure out her getting ready/baby feeding/being photographed timeline. That was certainly not her responsibility, but we were so grateful for her help!
After we got the photos back, I was so happy (I cried and I am not a big crier). I was instantly taken back to all of the best moments of our day – and many more that I hadn’t even been able to take in at the time, but could now enjoy. But… being the crazily detailed person that I am, there were a few photos that I wanted to tweak and Jillian completely understood, highlighted the little nuances that I wanted highlighted and got back to me with the edits so quickly.

I can't tell you how many people went out of their way to ask me where we found our photographers and how in awe they were of our photos--that's how much they make an impact. But most important, Aaron and Jill know how to capture EVERY perfect moment and make everyone look their best. I've seen many other photographers' galleries and those of my friends, and there is always that one moment just missed and taken a millisecond too late or that one person's eyes are closed in a group photo. Not with Aaron and Jill. Seriously. I cannot find a bad picture in either our engagement or wedding photos (and I am overly critical of every photo I'm in). EVERY SINGLE one of them could be framed. It's one thing to get a photographer that produces great and edited images, it's a whole other thing to be able to capture the perfect moment at the perfect time. That's what you need for your wedding photos and that's what you get with Aaron and Jill. They take it to the next level of wedding photography. I might be sounding too corny now but that's how much I love their work and how grateful and in awe I am of what they produced for us.
And ON TOP OF ALL THAT, Aaron and Jill are the sweetest and most down-to-earth people we've ever met. Multiple people came up to me at our wedding and said they wanted to be friends with our photographers (of which I said, stand in line, we found them first!). My husband who hates getting his photo taken was dreading our engagement photo session, but after we did it, he said he actually had a lot of fun--all because of Aaron and Jill. They make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and get so excited about every shot that you also get excited and confident and can't help but smile!
I could go on and on about them, I am just so in love with our photos and of them. A big reason I'm sad our wedding is over is because I can't have Aaron and Jill take pictures of us anymore and will miss them! Maybe anniversary pictures--can we make that a thing?!

When they showed up morning of I had forgotten everything they asked of me. whoops! They laughed, smiled and carried on. They had a schedule, a mission, an idea of what they wanted how they wanted it and kindly, politely, and sweetly managed the entire day to absolute perfection. They ask for photos you want, or inspiration you have and remember to take these while you're all caught up in the madness, the one photo I asked for turned out to be one of my favorites!
Their love respect and admiration for each other, their excitement over the photos, the light, your dress, your smiles, your love, their response to every shot they take, they made our wedding and made our photos. We still get compliments on how sweet they were, how kind they were, and how the seemed like family from the get go.
We (INSANELY QUICKLY) just received the final photos yesterday, when I say they are perfection, THEY ARE PERFECTION. I have sent them to EVERYONE & EVERYONE is freaking out over the perfection.
The photos exemplify us. They portray every emotion, every tear, every laugh, every smile. If I had to change everything about my wedding but one aspect, the one I wouldn't change would be booking Aaron & Jillian.

I didn’t even know what questions to ask before hiring photographers, but Jill takes the time to talk through their process, style, and ask about what we are looking for (which I wasn’t even able to articulate well but somehow they got it spot on anyway!). She kept in touch throughout, even though we hired them a year and a half before the wedding, and made sure to touch base in depth a few weeks before the event to ensure they captured any particular moments we wanted.
They have such an artistic eye, were so creative and were always in the right place at the right time to capture the most incredible candid photos of us and our guests as well as more posed photos (which never looked fake!) and beautiful scenery shots of the venue and of décor. They were also so friendly, warm and likable that at one point I thanked them for coming because I had forgotten that weren’t there as my friend/guest! They made us feel so comfortable even though we were terrified of being in front of the camera, and were such fun to be around. They were also a calming presence throughout a hectic day which was much appreciated, were never intrusive even during more delicate moments (eg the ceremony), and were extremely professional at all times.
We have received non-stop compliments from guests and even people who weren’t there about how amazing our photographers were. My sister already reported that she would want to hire them for her wedding because they did such a mind-blowing job for ours -- Aaron and Jill, we’ll see you in a few years at the very least (but hopefully much sooner)! We love you guys!

Aaron and Jillian are INCREDIBLE!! I don't know if I have enough characters to write everything I want to say about them! Initially, when we started to look at photographers, I fell in love with their photography style and everyone's reviews of...
them were GLOWING. They were definitely a little over what we had initially budgeted for our photographers, but I could not be more THRILLED that we decided to splurge on them! They are a HUGE part of what made our day so incredible and I can't imagine it without them! We hired them about a year and a half before our wedding when we first got engaged and we fell in love the moment we contacted them to chat with them about the options and their style! Once we decided that we couldn't possibly go with any other photographers, we chatted back and forth via email with them about our story. Shortly after we chatted with them via email, they invited us to THEIR HOME for dinner so they could get to know us a little better as a couple! I haven't heard of any vendors ever doing this, and it was amazing. We went to their ADORABLE perfect home and Aaron made us drinks and they told us all of their amazing travel stories and introduced us to their adorable pups. They were so sweet and so welcoming and genuine, we left saying to each other, "we definitely picked right!" Not only are they extremely talented, they are just the sweetest and the cutest couple! They work so well together and clearly LOVE what they do! They stayed in close touch with us all along, and as our day was approaching, they sent us questionnaires so everything would be exactly as we hoped! The day came and Jillian came into the room where I was getting my hair and makeup done, told me how gorgeous I looked and gave me a huge hug. They were SUCH an important part of our day beyond just photographing our special day! They are both so easy to work with and be comfortable in front of, are adorable and work so hard to get just the right angles and lighting for every photograph. They made being photographed SO comfortable, and continuously made us feel like the most amazing and beautiful people in the world. My groom and I both commented to each other so many times, "they've done SO many incredible weddings and yet they're making us feel like every picture is the most amazing one they've ever taken and everything we do is the most beautiful and adorable thing ever!" They truly made us feel like our wedding was the most beautiful one they've ever photographed, and we know they've photographed at least hundreds of gorgeous Charleston weddings. They seemed so genuinely excited about everything and clearly LOVE what they do. I can't say enough incredible things about them, and could go on and on. They are worth the money and so much more, I literally couldn't imagine our day without them. Guests commented on how incredible our photographers were without even seeing the final products yet! Amazing, amazing, amazing! Book them now!

I honestly love every single picture and look at them weekly six months later. Our guests raved about them and how amazing they were. We have had several people comment about how great our pictures are and how they wish they had used them for their big day! Seriously, you will not regret using them! You want the best to capture your big day and they are the best! Thank you Aaron and Jillian for capturing such lovely pictures and helping us to relieve our special day in such an amazing way!

ucky that we’re able to re-live the day through the breathtaking photographs Aaron and Jill captured.
This dynamic duo is truly the very best in the business. They have an incredible eye for beautiful backdrops, romantic lighting and sweet candid moments. They also have such a kind and playful demeanor that made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and instantly won over our wedding party and guests. I can’t tell you how many compliments we received on our photographers, which is no surprise once you’ve seen these two in action! They are awe-inspiring to watch - bounding through the heat, patiently handling all of the family logistics and weaving through the dance floor to ensure every special detail was captured. They also provided my husband and I such important moments of calm and togetherness amidst the chaos - I'll forever treasure the memory of us dancing and giggling while posing for our portraits.
It just doesn’t get any better than Aaron and Jill. Their talent is second to none and they’re just so fun and lovely to be around! We count our lucky stars to have found such a spectacular team to capture our big day. We adore you, Aaron and Jill!!!

I don’t even know where to begin in describing how amazing our experience was working with Aaron and Jillian. Sooo I guess the most logical place to start is in the beginning!

hey were the first vendors we booked. After much research and deliberation, I knew Chris and I had found our photographers when A) their photos were amazing, and B) In our Skype date, Jillian and I both heavily included our fur babies in conversation. From there it only got better. Aaron and Jill are the perfect mix of relaxed and focused. From our emails back and forth prior to our wedding, to their vibe and professionalism on our big day, everything just seemed to be as it should.
Aaron and Jill just have an ease about them that makes getting photographed feel comfortable. Aaron meshed so well with the guys in our wedding party and Jill was just one of us girls. Even our families and guests kept raving about how incredible they were and how they felt like Aaron and Jillian could have easily been mistaken for a couple of our friends.
Their ability to catch the big fairy-tale moments and not lose sight of the importance of those detail shots still amazes me. I really can’t thank them enough for giving Chris and I such a wonderful collection of photos so that we can relive that magical day over and over again.
Honestly, if you want the best of the best, you got it in Aaron and Jill.

Photography and videography were my top priorities for the wedding. My husband and I spent hours reviewing countless photographers' portfolios on their websites and reading the reviews. As soon as we saw Aaron and Jillian's beautiful website, I...
knew I had found a business whose style perfectly matched my own! We looked at their gallery and knew they were our top contender. I spoke to Jillian on the phone and was completely sold. Though we had not even officially booked them yet, she took the time to run through a full day mock-up itinerary for me, complete with the sunset time on the day of our wedding, which was more than a year away! I was blown away by her professionalism, knowledge, and she was super kind! When we traveled down to Charleston to meet with our vendors, my husband and I had the best time getting coffee with Aaron and Jill. If we hadn't hired them to come to our wedding as photographers, we would have wanted them to come as guests! They are seriously the nicest people. Throughout the planning process they were always very responsive about any questions through email. Their pre-wedding questionnaire was detailed and great to make sure they capture all the candid moments, family portraits, moments that are important, etc. It was great on the actual day that Aaron could go hang out with the guys as they got ready and Jillian could come with the ladies. My husband said that Aaron was so easy to be around, got along great with everyone, and make all the groomsmen feel at ease. They ran like clockwork on the day of the wedding, and kept everything on schedule in a way that felt organic (never felt rushed or pushed from place to place). During the ceremony they positioned themselves so that they get great shots but are never in the guests' way. During the reception they were so stealthy getting their shots. They got the photos back to us so quickly- less than a month post-wedding, and we were so pleased with their work.We couldn't be happier with them!

o finding our photographer for our destination wedding at the Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC. I originally discovered and fell in love with their pictures on Pinterest, and after calling them to find out more info and if they were available for our date, I knew our search was over as we instantly connected, and I could tell right away that we would be beyond happy with them! They really are the best of the best, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with them!
They make the best husband and wife team ever, and it was fun seeing them work together as well and bounce ideas off of one another. They have such a wonderful positive energy about them too which makes the engagement session even more enjoyable! They are crazy talented, extremely personable, professional, and so much fun to be around! I’m pretty sure we’d all be the best of friends if we lived in Charleston too (and I’m pretty sure every bride that gets to know Jill and Aaron feels the same way too)!! :) They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed during the session, making it easy for us to be natural and show our fun quirky personalities, while still giving great direction as well when needed. They’re full of fun ideas and with their unique creativity and artistic eye, it made for so many gorgeous photos we will treasure for a lifetime. We’ve had tons of compliments on our pictures as people have told us that our photos look like they are straight out of a magazine. They truly are artists and can make anything look incredible (and magazine-worthy!). :)
If you want to make one of the easiest and best decisions regarding your wedding and are lucky enough to have them available for your wedding date, you will be forever grateful to choose Aaron and Jillian as they will document your special day in the most beautiful way possible. When the wedding is over and all you have left are the pictures and memories from your special day, you’ll be more than thankful knowing you will always have incredible photos that capture all the details and emotion of your special day, tell your beautiful story, can be relived time and time again, and will be cherished for a lifetime!
Thank you again Jill and Aaron for going ABOVE and BEYOND and EXCEEDING our expectations! Selecting y’all was the easiest choice I made (besides saying yes to Jeremiah!) :) Thank you a million times over!!

We live in Texas so we didn’t get to meet Aaron and Jill until the day before our wedding, although it felt like we already knew each other! Our wedding day was prefect and Aaron and Jill where a big part of that. Not only did they do an amazing job capturing the most perfect day they were also a joy to be around. We really felt like we could relax and be our goofy selves! I had asked Jill if we could get just one photo sent to us early so we could share it with our family and friends, I had photos in my inbox before we returned home! Aaron and Jill were always quick to respond and quick to deliver. Once we received the photos I noticed the color of my hair extensions showed up a little more than I cared for, I tried to get over it but it was just all I could see. Once I told Jill she agreed and Aaron worked his magic and they turned out amazing! A few weeks later we received our photos and could not be more pleased. Aaron and Jill truly captured the magic of the day. Our wedding photos will be treasured for a lifetime and we are so thankful for them both!

weren't able to make it down for engagement photos with them (where they get to know you as a couple and get comfortable) but it didn't matter at all. Their shots were amazing. The editing on the photos was natural with elegance and charm, and a gorgeous touch of glow in outdoor shots. My husband kept going on and on afterward about how he felt like we're actually friends with them and he felt like they fit right in as guests at the wedding (not like they were dancing or anything haha, just that they were normal people we genuinely enjoyed being around).
I also loved that they didn't wear black on black like most photographers do because it made it more natural. They fit right into the mix.
Warm, friendly, lovely (and in love!) and incredibly talented. I'd recommend them to the moon. If you're getting married at Legare Waring, they're a must. They did a fabulous job.

If you are looking for a second to none, amazingly professional and incredibly gracious photography team then you've come to the right place! Jill and Aaron are all of the above and more.
Similar to what I've read in a number of their review...
s, I had an initial call with Jill during our wedding photographer search and hung up the phone knowing I needed to search no further. Fast forward several weeks and my fiance and I spring it on them that we'll be making a last minute wedding planning trip to Charleston and would be so appreciative if we could squeeze in an engagement photo session. Now, it's important to note that our trip fell right in the heart of Charleston's busiest season & Jill and Aaron had back to back weddings and several engagement sessions already booked in that four-day period! They, however, went absolutely above and beyond to accommodate us and spent an afternoon running around Magnolia Plantation with us to make sure we got shots for our Save the Dates.
Despite the fact we were already over the moon with them before the engagement session, they sure sealed the deal in just an hour of shooting. They are such an incredible team! They worked together to find the perfect locales and lighting, exchanged playful banter to keep us comfortable and laughing and patiently helped us to look our best. We couldn't stop smiling throughout the shoot and had such a good time in what can otherwise feel like such an unnatural and forced setting
To add the final icing to the cake, we just received our photos and WOW. They are magical -- romantic, sweet, artistic and just truly beautiful. My fiance and I must have looked through them a million times we're so thrilled with how they turned out!
Aaron and Jill are the very best at what they do - their work is truly unparalleled - and, to set them even further apart from the competition, they'll win over you heart as some of the very best people you've ever had the pleasure of meeting!

, whether you're getting married in Charleston or not.
My husband and I got home late last night from living out our honeymoon dream and I knew the photo link was waiting for us. We ended up not getting home until after midnight, just long enough to do a load of laundry, sleep, and get my husband back to the airport the next morning for a work flight. Needless to say, reality slapped us hard in the face today. And after missing my husband all day, I finally had a chance to go through the link. I just laughed out load, cried, smiled the whole way through, and felt like I was right back in the moment...and it made missing my husband a little bit easier. I really don't know what to say. Each photo is stunningly beautiful on it's own. So much happiness was captured. Aaron and Jill's hearts, creative minds, and spirits of full intention is so easily recognized when looking through each photo. It's a rare gift they each have separately, but also as a pair. You can feel their love behind every photos, every line of communication, and every moment we spent with them.
AHHH!! I'm so happy. No, happy doesn't do it. Thrilled, ecstatic, in love, and full of joy. Thank you to Aaron + Jillian for playing such a HUGE role in our day. We will never forget our experience with you. Or the photos. It will be so DIFFICULT to choose which to hang...because of course putting 60 photos of your wedding up in your house....probably....isn't to normal. But I WOULD because they are sooo good! :)
If you're looking for a photography partner to help create the most unique, personal, and beautiful experience...by capturing your big day, then seriously consider these two love birds. Their joy will bring you joy.
