Julie and Eric provided a wonderful testimonial for their wedding photography during their intimate Jewish Wedding at Renaissance Southpark.
While their emphasis was on family and close friends they also knew the importance of hiring professionals. Many Kudos’ to the great team of professionals that Laura Massey of Head Over Heels put together.

Eric and I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful photos you took of our wedding and reception. It’s hard to believe that after all of the planning and preparation, and despite our best efforts to live every minute, most of the day is just a beautiful blur in our memories! We are so grateful that you were there to capture all of the moments and people that mattered most, and to make sure we looked our best in our pictures.
It never occurred to us how much more is involved than just taking the pictures. Getting everyone together, posed and looking great with so many distractions is hard enough when it’s just adults. Add a lot of small children, and it’s nearly impossible! But somehow, you managed to bring it all together to create wonderful memories we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
In hindsight, we made three wise decisions when planning our wedding:
- We hired a terrific wedding coordinator – because we live out-of-town, we really needed help finding quality vendors and running things that day
- We decided we had to have a good professional photographer—skimping on the quality of our memories was not an option
- We chose Fort Mill Photography— they were recommended by our planner, and she was absolutely RIGHT!
We definitely recommend other couples choose Fort Mill Photography. Why?
Here’s what we would say to them, if we could:
These memories are forever.
This day will only happen once. It’s truly a special, magical moment in time where all of those nearest and dearest to you gather in one place to celebrate your marriage. You will be looking at these photos for the rest of your life, so it’s important to capture the moments and the people at their best.
A professional photographer knows all of the things to look out for to make sure your photos are well-composed, from the lighting to the angle to posing everyone so the shot is balanced and beautiful. But the professionals at Fort Mill go one better than that—they don’t just take pictures, they create photographic art. They add additional shots that you wouldn’t even have thought to ask for, ones that incorporate creativity and flair. So in the end, you’ll have photos that are unique and artistic as well as flattering.
There are no second chances.
There are no second chances to capture these one-time moments, so make sure you have an experienced professional you can trust to handle this for you. Fort Mill Photography gets the shots right the first (and only) time, they take plenty of pictures to make sure they get a good shot of each grouping/pose, and they are prepared for all contingencies including equipment failure, to make sure nothing goes wrong. There are many things to worry about on your wedding day, but if you choose Fort Mill, whether you will have great photos when it’s over is not one of them.
You deserve to savor your day.
The last thing you want to have to do on your wedding day is to try to corral your family and guests for photographs. A professional photographer will make sure you get the photos you want, and they’ll take care of getting everyone together and smiling, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the time with your guests.
In our case, Shirley managed to direct a large group including four small, energetic children and got terrific pictures, which is nothing short of miraculous! Your wedding day is not the day you want to have to tell people what to do—you should be free to just enjoy the day. To have that freedom, you need someone you can trust to nicely direct your family and guests to do what’s needed so you get the pictures you want.
If you choose your photographer wisely, you’ll have wonderful memories of your special day that will last a lifetime. We are so grateful we did, and we wish the same for you. Have a wonderful wedding, and don’t forget to smile! (If you choose Fort Mill, don’t worry– they will remind you…)
