My husband and I could not be happier with the services provided by BlackDeer Media! The photos were absolutely amazing and helped me relive that wonderful day to the point that I had tears in my eyes. It was easy to choose them as we instantly connected with Stephen when we first interviewed. Working with Stephen was a dream and he listened to all of my picture requests. He made taking the family pictures the day of easy and stress free. He sent us teaser pictures while working the over 500 pictures that where taken. I would recommend them to all of my friends - hopefully they plan on getting married in Charleston because I don't think there exist a better photographer to work with! Thank you so so so much for capturing our special day so well!

Stephen is INCREDIBLE!!! He was on his game for the entire night and all of his shots were amazing. We requested mostly candids, as we aren't really into the generic posed pictures. That was literally our only request, and it was like Stephen read my mind--everything was absolutely perfect. We got our pictures back from both our engagement shoot and wedding day much more quickly than I expected. And Stephen is so personable, too--he has an awesome sense of humor and everyone had a lot of fun with him while we were taking pictures. He was quick to answer any questions we had and stayed in touch during the whole process. I couldn't be happier with our experience and pictures.

These guys are amazing!!! They did our engagement pictures, my bridal portraits, and our wedding. These guys totally captured these events in ways I never thought possible. I look at these pictures and I relive the most amazing year of my life. I will cherish these pictures forever. I could never thank you guys for this. There was never any doubt who I would use for these events as I have watched a few of my friends use them. I think this may have been the person I contacted not long after I called my Mom and told her I was engaged. I sincerely thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for the amazing job! And I will definitely recommend you guys to everyone!! and I will see you again! Thank you so much!!

Can I give Stephen 10 out of 5 stars? If I could I would. From the beginning Stephen was great to work with-very friendly and prompt in answering e-mails. The day of he was apparently there taking the most amazing pictures but I never felt like he was "in the way." He had great ideas for our bridal party pictures and with our adventurous bridal party we took a little trip to get some really fun shots near the waterfront. His use of color is phenomenal and all of our pictures are vivid. My favorite aspect of his photography, however, was his ability to capture the emotion of the day. I was able to relive the day and feel the emotions just through looking at the pictures. Everyone that we have shown thus far has raved about the pictures and I can't believe that he is not charging 3x what he is (glad he is not because we wouldn't have been able to afford him!) Stephen is an amazing photographer and I HIGHLY recommend him to capture your special event!

My husband and I were from out-of-state and Stephen was incredibly helpful through the whole wedding planning process. Especially when we needed a back-up plan in case it rained. He made sure the day was about what we wanted and never complained or denied any of our requests. We can't recommend him enough and absolutely love our wedding pictures. He is so reasonably priced for the quality of images we have from our Charleston wedding. Thanks again Stephen for helping us make our day one we will never forget!

When looking for a photographer, my wife and I wanted someone that would think outside the box with us... someone that could work with 2 people that dont take good pictures just looking at the camera, but candids. This would require someone that could be at the right place at the right time to capture the moment. Stephen was this and much more. We felt so comfortable around him that is was easy for us to get in a casual mood and take natural photos. He takes such pride in his work and is a very easy guy to get along with.

I would STRONGLY recommend Stephen to anybody who wants more than just photos from their event... someone that wants an artistic touch from an extremely personable pro!

Thanks again to Stephen. Our photos are all that we hoped for and more!

Stephen Blackmon was absolutely fantastic!!! Our pictures are better than I could have ever imagined. He made me feel completely comfortable while taking the "getting ready" shots and had the best suggestions of places to go after the ceremony to take wedding pictures. Stephen was not intrusive in moments my husband and I were sharing with our family and friends, and was able to get pictures that we did not even know he was taking. I would highly recommend Stephen to anyone looking for a great, friendly, professional photographer!!!

Stephen Blackmon is a phenomenal photographer!! He recently captured the most amazing day of our lives with absolutely gorgeous pictures!! He has such a creative eye and style that adds a special touch to every image. So many of our wedding guests commented on his awesome, down-to-earth personality! He has a way of making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. That certainly helped with all of the jitters before the wedding. I was having so much fun taking pictures with my bridal party that I didn't even realize that it was almost time to walk down the aisle. He is so fun, easy-going, and fits right in with the party, yet maintains a professional attitude. He was even jumping with us on the dancefloor to capture some of our favorite candid snapshots. We truly appreciated having such a creative and talented photographer who went above and beyond to acheive perfection in our photos. He even helped coordinate the photo/design with a local store for our "Save the Date" card. Our memories will be cherished forever thanks to the talents of Stephen!!!

Stephen was absolutely fantastic, and we couldn't be more pleased! He adapted very well to our over the top partying guests, and blended right in to get so many fabulous candid shots! In addition, the detail and portrait photos are gorgeous and very artistic. He truly showed a variety of techniques in our photos. Stephen is also wonderful to work with - he was very responsive and open to my (sometimes overly obsessive) thoughts, plans, and ideas. So many of our bridal party members commented on how much fun he was - he really seemed like he fit in as a friend/guest and not just someone we were paying to be there! We absolutely recommend using Stephen!

Stephen is professional, relaxed and very responsive. From the first time we met him, we knew he was the top choice for our photographer. He was relaxed with anything that came up on the wedding day and did not seem to interfere with the day as I have seen some photographers do. He has an 'all day' package which was exactly what we needed. When you are planning, you do not know exactly how long you'll want your photographer there, so it's nice to have an all day package that is flexible. The pictures turned out great! Also, we got married in Charleston, but are not from Charleston. When I asked Stephen about some key beautiful, historical sites in downtown to take photos, he thought of places right away and it turned out to be exactly where I wanted.

Stephen has a way of making you feel as if you have known him for years upon your first meeting. He has a great eye for capturing raw emotion and takes the time to listen. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

Stephen Blackmon is so very talented. He exceeded our expectations by miles! We can not gush about him enough. I'm glad he charged us what he did, but he deserves to be paid much, much more! We have no doubt that his photograph will make many people very happy!

LOVED...LOVED...LOVED wording with Stephen! As an out of town bride, I was nervous that I wouldn't have a connection with my photographer, however Stephen put me at ease the first time my (now) husband met him. He is so nice and laid back and I felt totally comfortable with him. When we got our pictures last week I was very pleased. He exceeded both of our expectations. I knew he would get great shots because he was so collabortive during the whole process...and handled himself quite nicely with my demanding bridal party :)
Needless to say...he got some amazing shots...and provided my husband and I with a lifetime of memories.

Stephen was an amazing photographer! My husbands biggest worry was that Stephen would be in our faces the entire day however, it was the complete opposite. I have been to weddings where you feel like the photographer was like the paparazzi and you cant enjoy the event. Stephen was ALL over our wedding and got some of the most amazing shots however, you would never know that he was there. He branched out of the norm and had us do creative shots as well as classic shots. He was able to capture moments that I wouldn't have thought of and the quality of his work was way above average. The level of our pictures are at such a quality, I will be submitting many of them to bridal magazines. Stephen is an extremely professional but laid back business person. This made us feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. I would recommend him for any event that requires and artistic touch and will result in amazing moments captured by the camera for people to enjoy for many, many years!

Coming from two people who hate to be photographed, we loved Stephen Blackmon!I was so nervous about my bridal portraits- I worried that I would look as awkward as I felt, but Stephen managed to get some really amazing photos. He was well organized, prompt, and never over-bearing. He is a genuinely nice guy who has an awesome ability to get even the most unwilling subject of photos to smile and look gorgeous. We recently received our wedding album and, as I have come to expect from Stephen, it was far above our expectations. Thanks to him I have beautiful photos of the most important day of our lives. I highly recommend him to any girl who wants to feel like a movie star on her wedding day!

Stephen was awesome! He made me and my husband very comfortable. Stephen didn't make us do too many poses, which led to a more natural feel from the pictures. We will be using him again for future occasions.

I am so glad we hired Stephen as our wedding photographer. We just got our photos back and they are a huge hit! He got exactly what I was looking for and the photos are styled beautifully. Not only that, he was a fun guy to have around and he helped make us two awkward turtles relax and have fun.

Stephen Blackmon was simply wonderful. I am shocked that we were able to get such a skilled photographer at such a reasonable rate. Not only is Stephen great at his craft, he is a delight to work with and made us feel so comfortable with him and with our pre-wedding photoshoot in downtown Charleston (we're not really Center of Attention people :) We recently received our photos, and I can't stop looking at them. He did a fantastic job of capturing the happiness of our day as well as the charm of Charleston. I truly believe that Stephen was the best possible photographer for our event, and I'd recommend him in a heartbeat!
