Extremely talented! Don't look any further. Philip Casey with Studio 1250 is by far the best wedding decision we made. Philip took our engagement and wedding photos, and we absolutely could not have dreamed of more! Our wedding in May 2015 was documented perfectly - everything... Read More from the light, the emotions, the fun, the details, and the love. We cannot say enough wonderful comments about Philip. We chose the 12 hour photography package with two photographers and recommend this to all. Philip made sure to take all of the main shots of the day, and the second photographer was great at capturing guests and secondary pictures. Philip is incredibly easy to work with. We provided him the wedding day itinerary, he made a few small recommendations based on his experiences, and made it all work flawlessly. After our wedding, some of our guests and ourselves commented that we did not notice the photographers at all during the reception. The photographers were very unobtrusive. After we received our photos, there were 100s of wonderful candid shots taken during the time at the reception. For our engagement shots, we traveled into town for a long weekend, so had to make the weekend work. The weather was less than ideal with pretty consistent rain falling all day. Philip made us feel extremely comfortable and did not push us into posing for pictures that were not "us." Despite the poor weather, Philip's talent shined through, and the pictures turned out wonderfully. Our engagement photos will be in our home forever as well. Many of our family and friends commented that they could not even tell that it was a dreary day because Philip works wonders with natural light. All of the photographs captured us and our personalities so well. We definitely recommend Studio 1250!

Rachel, Thank you for this absolutely priceless review of me. :-) I can't say thank you enough!

One of my favorite wedding planning decisions

Reviewed on 7/31/2013 Siu L

When I started my wedding planning process, I was told that you have to pick those 1-2 wedding details that are very important to you and invest in those areas. Everything else, you have to let go a little. For me, I knew that early on, that my photographer and my photographs... Read More would be very important to me. I planned a destination wedding in Charleston from Cincinnati. Google was my best friend but for photographers, it was hard because everyone's photos look so pretty. I reached out to a few photographers based on their website but Philip was easily my top choice based on the following reasons: 1. I loved his work. All his photos were clean with beautiful lighting. There wasn't a lot of "set up" or "editing" or "fancy post-effects". They were simply beautiful and more than anyone, he captured moments and emotions. 2. In his bio, he said he did wedding photography because he loved it, not because he just fell into it. I'm personally inspired by people who pursue their passions as a career, no matter how difficult it may be. 3. His website and packages were really easy for me to understand. I appreciated the transparency given how time consuming the wedding planning process can be. From the start, Philip and Studio 1250 was one of my favorite wedding planning decisions. My engagement session was fun and Philip cared so much about getting the right shots. It's clear that he has passionate about his work and he's fun to work with. Not being familiar with the area, he took the lead as he's very familiar with Charleston. For the wedding day, I felt comfortable with him being there for some of our most intimate moments. The pictures turned out amazing. I really could not be happier and I would recommend Philip to any friend or stranger. He will take great care of you and his work is incredibly special. Thank you Philip!

Philip and the amazing team of photographers at Studio 1250 are a dream to work with on your wedding day. Matt and I didn't actually meet Philip until 2 days before our wedding and I instantly felt comfortable talking to him about us and our big day and knew that he would know... Read More exactly how to capture Matt and I on our wedding day. When our day arrived things were a little stressful due to the large thunderstorm that was pouring rain on Charleston, but Philip came right in with great ideas for capturing the moments before the ceremony. As the weather started to clear up, I could sense his excitement for us as to what that day would hold for us and our families. It could not have turned out to be a more amazing day for us and our families, and Philip literally captured every amazing moment of our wedding day! He was everywhere and I didn't even realize it until he sent me the link to our pictures. And what can I say, I am absolutely IN LOVE with ALL of our pictures!! Every time I look through our pictures, I am immediately taken back to that day...even to the point of laughing so hard I'm crying at our fantastic reception dance party pictures! Philip truely captured all of the love and fun that surrounded us at The Island House that day. His pictures are beautiful and reflect the emotions of our wedding day as well as the gorgeous surroundings of the Island House and the Stono River. I could not have asked for a more amazing photographer to work with on our wedding day! Philip was always so responsive whenever I e-mailed or called with any questions and he was more than awesome with how quickly he had our sneakpeek pictures on his website and then with our full wedding link and disk. I would recommend Philip and Studio 1250 to any bride and her family. Not only will they have an extremely professional photographer on their special day, but they will also have absolutely gorgeous photos to remind them always of how amazing and wonderful and fun their wedding day was for them and all of their friends and family!

June Wedding 2015

Reviewed on 11/03/2015 Kelly S

When we were looking for photographers for our wedding, we came across Studio 1250's website and were sold immediately. Philip's pictures are that good. We also appreciated the packages/pricing being listed on the website. Many photographers just had packages listed with pricing... Read More when you contact them. That was a big turn off for us! One of the things we appreciated was that Philip would travel, not only for our wedding, but for our engagement pictures too. He came to Greenville, SC over a year before our wedding to shoot with us downtown. We met him on a gloomy morning but luckily things cleared up, and he was able to get all my "Pinterest" ideas as well as MANY of his own! The pictures turned out perfectly! I didn't think I could love any pictures anymore... Fast forward to our wedding day June 2015. Philip showed up early to start shooting, making sure he got all the details in the venue and my diy decor. He also took many pictures of us as we got ready for the ceremony and my husband as he waited *patiently* for us to get ready. One feature I really wanted on our wedding day was an extra photographer so we could have different angles of the ceremony as well as various photo opportunities. Philip did not let us down on this! The photos of my husband as I walked down the aisle are priceless but so are the ones of my dad walking me down the aisle. I wouldn't have wanted to miss either of these moments! If you're looking for a wedding photographer, I suggest you contact Studio 1250 like yesterday.

Philip shot my wedding at the I'on Creek Club in May, and he was absolutely fantastic.

My husband and I chose STUDIO 1250 to take our engagement pictures after reading a number of positive reviews.

The day of the wedding Philip showed up on time and even brought an extra photographer! It was such a relief knowing that we did not have to worry about the photographer or the outcome of the pictures.

I used Philip Casey with Studio 1250 for our engagement photos, my bridal portraits, and our wedding, and we could not have been more pleased! When my husband and I first met Philip before our engagement photo shoot, he took the time to get to know us and to make us feel... Read More comfortable, which definitely made us relax and enjoy ourselves during the session (more relaxed = better pictures!). He was flexible with us and very open to our ideas and suggestions. During the wedding, he interacted well with all our guests and was able to handle a very loud and excitable wedding party. All our pictures turned out beautifully, and I had several people tell me that our wedding pictures "captured every moment perfectly." He was always prompt and professional. It did take us longer than expected to get our pictures back (the company was in the middle of moving and expanding), and to make up for this he even gave us additional print credit. We chose to opt for the 12 hour package with the additional photographer, and I definitely recommend this.... especially if you are having a larger wedding. It is money well spent. All in all, we were very pleased and I definitely recommend his services to future brides!

Hello! I'm Philip. Photography is truly my passion. I would do it even if I wasn't being paid. I'm constantly out shooting and improving my craft. I enjoy beautiful scenery, warm sunsets, music, and taking road trips. I'm very dedicated to what I do and I'm thankful I get to do it full-time.
