My husband and I needed a photographer for our intimate, outdoor ceremony in the middle of July. We struggled to find someone but really lucked out with Riverland! They matched us up with Haley, who was an absolute dream to work with. She not only walked us through questions...

It took a little over 4 weeks to receive the photos and we are completely pleased with them! We would recommend them to anyone in the South Carolina area looking for a photographer.

Absolutely loved working with Noni from Riverland Studios for our wedding. She was super attentive, down-to-earth, fun, and professional. I did a lot of research on wedding photography in Charleston and the quality and value of Riverland Studios was unparalleled. Priscilla... Read More was very responsive and helped set me up with Noni (who we requested). We loved the natural style of her photography. I found the online portal for payment and questionnaires for the wedding day to be super helpful. On the day of the wedding, we had 7 hours of photography. Noni and Sarah (her assistant) took the more formal photos at White Point Gardens and they were very efficient. We also had Rachel as a second photographer for the reception. Right after our ceremony, we spent about 10 min with Noni and Sarah doing some couples shots next to the venue. I cannot wait to get all the photos back. If you are getting married in Charleston, Riverland Studios should be your pick!

Riverland studios is so great to work with! I was planning my destination wedding in Charleston, and Riverland Studios was one of the most wonderful venues I hired. They are professional and organized. I worked specifically with the photographer, Shannon Noel. All I can say is... Read More she is WONDERFUL. On my wedding day, Shannon had taken all of my notes and requests into consideration. She was so professional, and calm. For a woman that felt a little frantic on my wedding day...that ALL went away when Shannon showed up. She is so reassuring. I have gotten so many compliments on my wedding photos. Friends of mine have even told me they love my pictures even more than they love their own wedding photos. I have told so many of my friends who my photographer was because my pictures are so breathtaking. If you want beautiful photos to remember for a lifetime, Riverland Studios will transform your wedding into a fairytale/magazine/flawless event. I can't say enough about how much I loved working with Riverland Studios. Don't look anywhere else! Their photographers and staff will make you feel unique and important.
