Cardens Photography did such an amazing job photographing our engagement shoot and wedding! They were so easy to work with and really know how to get natural, flattering poses out of everybody. During our wedding day, they got beautiful pictures of everything! All of the important moments, all of the family portraits, and every little detail. They were nearly invisible at our reception, but managed to get perfect pictures of every bit. Looking through all of the photos truly feels like reliving the day!

It's been less than a week since our wedding, and they already have added tons of photos from our wedding to their blog. Their work is stunning, and I couldn't be happier with our decision to have them photograph our wedding!

This team did both photography and cinematography for our wedding. They were very easy to work with and they always listened to what we wanted. For our trash the dress, my husband was giving off bad vibes because he naturally does not like to take pictures. They were able to make him feel more comfortable and help him to really let loose during the shoot! The trash the dress photos came back nice as I am sure that the movie and wedding photos will come out amazing as well.
I would use this team again to capture of my future life events. No regrets with using Cardens photograhy!! Actually, one of my best decisions ever!

We recently used Cardens Photography for our October wedding out in Central Pennsylvania after 2 of our friends had used them in the past for their wedding photography. We are so glad that we ended up choosing Cardens as they definitely made us feel at ease while taking pictures.

I was really unsure of what I wanted in a photography package and Virginia patiently answered all of my questions regarding all of the packages. I didn't think I wanted an engagement session, but it ended up coming with the package we chose and boy am I glad that we did it. It gave us a chance to get to know Virginia and a chance to help me get used to having my picture taken. Virginia was also always very good about responding to my e-mails in a timely manner (usually within 48 hours) and literally answering each and every question that I had.

Our pictures were just recently posted to their online gallery and I have to say they did NOT disappoint. Virginia and her assistant captured some fantastic images of us on our wedding day and I can't wait to be able to create our storybooks and to get prints made of some of our favorite images!

I would 200% recommend Cardens to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!!

I fell in love with cardens' photos when I saw them online. We had a very small budget so I did not think we could afford them, but they were very willing to work with me.
I dealt mostly with Virginia who was very willing to answer my questions promptly even when she was out of the country. She was flexible in setting up times, and I cannot wait to see the photos. I'm sure they will be beautiful.

As an out of state bride, I was not able to do many face to face meetings. Any time I called or emailed with a question or request, I received a thorough response very timely. I was very pleased with their organization and professionalism from the very beginning.

Throughout the wedding day we enjoyed our experience with the photos. Nothing was forced. We were able to be ourselves and have all those moments captured. The photos we have seen so far are absolutely beautiful and really show us as a couple.

Our experience was amazing and we are very glad we made the choice we did. THANK YOU!

Carden's did our photography for our wedding on 9/8 and did a great job! They were always quick to respond to all emails and answer all our questions. On the day of the wedding, I didn't even realize they were there! We are still waiting on most of our pictures, but the ones we've seen we love! They did our formal pictures in under an hour which we really appreciated and never made us stop or pulled us away from anything to take photos through out the night! I would highly recommend Tim and Virginia!

The Carden's really do produce beautiful work! I do have just two critiques that you should consider when selecting your wedding photographer. Looking back at our photos from Carden's, I realized we have no photos with our very elderly grandmothers. In all the commotion of the day, we didn't think to pull them back into the room where our photos were taken and I was surprised that they didn't suggest it, knowing that the grandmothers were there and important to us. Also, they really do not bend on the amount of time that you are given. Our package cost about $2300 and it only came with 5 hours. in this, they counted travel time and everything. At this price in the area I live in, you can get twice that amount of time. They do say that you are getting two photographers, however my friend got married around the same time as I did, and her photographer came with an assistant who also took photos. He stayed for 11 hours and her pictures were equally as beautiful as mine. Her package was the exact same price to the dollar as mine. While she has many beautiful, fun photos from her reception, we have next to none. Hindsight is 20/20!

Cardens Photography responded with the following comments:

We are very sorry to see the above bride was not 100% satisfied with our services.
I would like to address some points that were made by the bride in her review. As far as being "flexible" goes, we performed the engagement session for this couple in Wilkes Barre which is well outside our 10 mile radius for engagement sessions. We went an additional 20 miles each way for this session, and did not charge ANY travel fees. Also, we went to 2 different locations once we arrived for the session, which went on for an hour and a half, due to the fun everyone seemed to be having.
I would now like to address the grandmother point that was made in the review. When we were doing the family portraits we asked if there were grandparents that the bride would like included and we were told yes, but they were in the next room and they did not want to make them walk over. After the family portraits, we headed outdoors and walked through the reception hall where the grandparents were. We again asked if the couple wanted pictures of the grandparents on the patio. Again we were told by the bride, they didn't want to make them walk and it was hot outside. Short of forcing these photos to happen, there is nothing more that we could have done. We don't push people for photographs, certainly not the bride. We did however get numerous pictures of the grandmother coming into the ceremony and walking out. There were also some photos of grandmom before the ceremony, in the lobby where the wedding party congregated after the ceremony.
Including the travel time between venues/locations in the overall time is pretty standard for any wedding vendor. However it should not even be an issue, given the ceremony and reception were in the same location and the only travel was from the brides parents house to the venue which was only a 10-15 minute drive. The grooms parents to the venue was about 5 minutes. We drove separate cars and the time was utilized very efficiently.
The package this couple chose included an engagement session with dvd, custom storybook, wedding day coverage of 5 hours, online gallery and dvd of the wedding images. That is what we delivered to them. If they wanted the entire reception they could have chosen that. Due to budget restraints they opted for only the main events of the reception, which we captured. If things are happening at the reception we will hang out and stay a little longer as we do most of the time. More often than not, we remain at a reception an additional 30-40 mins. We are not clock watchers. However, at the time we left ( just after 9:30pm halfway through the reception) the lights were all still on and no partying or dancing was taking place. If a couple wants to add an hour or 2 or 3 on their wedding day, we are happy to accommodate them. However no mention of staying to get a certain event or for a certain reason was ever mentioned to us by this couple. It is kind of perplexing that the fact we did not stay longer than contracted (for free) and for some reason were expected to is even mentioned in this review. Like always we hope our clients enjoy their photographs for many years to come and have a wonderful marriage

I found Cardens Photograpy through a friend who had recently gotten married. They did such a great job with the videography for her wedding that I contacted them immediately. Virginia and Tim were always easy to reach and Tim made sure he had all the details necessary the week before the wedding. We hadn't met them in person because they live far from us, but if my friend loved them and said they were a dream to work with, I knew we would be in good hands.

They were awesome to spend the day with and were on top of everything. As a bridal vendor myself I have seen a great deal of bad photography/bad videography. I've been witness to videographers being intrusive or completely oblivious to moments that they should be capturing. Virginia and Tim were the complete opposite! Always staying a step ahead and filming all the moments I really wanted to capture!

Virginia spent the first part of the day in my suite watching the madness of getting hair/makeup done and she was awesome to have around! She was helpful and calm and didn't let any of the surrounding craziness get to her!

Thank you to both you guys for working with us!

Cardens photography were contracted to provide footage for a wedding that occurred over 9 months ago.

We signed the contract that they provided and paid in good faith.

The wedding occurred and - over 9 months later - we still have not received the footage that we contracted/paid for.

Even though the footage should have been sent via email/dropbox, after their initial refusal, we have made a number of attempts to collect the footage in person (DHL alone made 15 attempts to collect it - and gave up after being verbally abused).

Carden's Photography have ignored our lawyer's and the Better Business Bureau's attempt to contact them.

Instead - after initially informing us that they'd send the footage after returning from a family holiday - they have run off with our money and continue to act with utter disregard to both the contract and law.

Had the contract been fulfilled (even late) we would have kept our horrific experiences with this company quiet (we waited a number of months, after all).

However, we have been left with no choice but to pursue Carden's Photography to the fullest extent of the law (or until they send us the footage we paid for), and to inform others about the outrageous and unethical behaviour of this company.

In fact, we are now pursuing Carden's Photography through the Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection in Pennsylvania.

We have no doubt that the vendors will attempt to dispute this review (in order to hide their conduct), and so look forward to emailing Wedding Wire our contract, paypal invoices, letters from our lawyer and Better Business Bureau reports, so they - too - can see how we have been defrauded.

The pictures are beautiful and exactly what we wanted! They take pictures of the day instead of making they day feel like a photo shoot. Sometimes it took a few days for them to get back to me but they are full time photographers and are very busy. It does take a while to get your pictures back from them but when you do it's worth it cause they are great! We did have to double our photography budget for them but these were the pictures we wanted. We still have to decide what we want for our album but the samples they showed us are awesome and I know it'll be great!

Cardens Photography responded with the following comments:

This bride received her pictures well within the 6-8 week window we ask couples to allow for processing. A 6-8 week turnaround time is more than adequate for wedding images. As far as not getting back to her in a timely manner, I'm not sure when this bride received a delayed response if at all. However, we photograph weddings on the weekends, and don't always have the time to respond on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. No contact from a client goes unanswered, and yes, even photographers take a day off from work every once in awhile. If the bride claims to understands how busy we are, why make mention of it at all?
We're glad that this bride is enjoying the images from her special day, and wish her all the best.

Virginia and Tim Carden did our October 15 wedding. They were so easygoing and pleasant to work with before the wedding. They were always responsive to our questions and took all of our requests very seriously. They really helped us to figure out scheduling and logistics.

On our wedding day, they arrived right on time and got right to work. They captured all the important pre-wedding details. They were extremely flexible and patient. They are also just really nice people! During the ceremony and reception, they were completely inconspicuous. I hardly remember seeing them at all. They weren't pushy like some wedding photographers and just captured really candid beautiful moments.

We just got our online gallery and could not be happier. The pictures are so beautiful and artistic. There are so many planned and unplanned details, like stunning shots of the sky and backgrounds. The photos truly capture the love we felt on our wedding day. The colors and composition are gorgeous. I would highly recommend Virginia and Tim Carden. They are professional, organized, and experienced, while being incredibly talented, artistic, and fun. Their prices are also amazingly reasonable. We really trusted them to take fabulous pictures that we would always cherish, and they delivered beyond our expectations. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Tim and Virginia were amazing! I knew after a phone conversation that I was done looking and that I couldn't wait to meet them in person. Our engagement session was the first time that we had met in person and it wasn't an awkward situation. They made us comfortable and the photos turned out great. It was a great lead up to the ceremony and reception. It seemed that they were seamlessly, everywhere! I've never felt more beautiful than I did after seeing the photos from the wedding day. I can't wait to come up with a reason to have more photos taken with Cardens. Thanks!

The best compliment I can give the Carden's is that I'm a photographer myself and we are the hardest to please, but I am in love with my wedding & engagement photos! They were so on the ball at our wedding & I didn't have to worry about a thing. You can't beat their quality for the same price in central PA- trust me, I did the research!

We LOVE our pictures. We are so happy we hired the Cardens - they are a great couple and we felt really comfortable with them on our wedding day, and during our engagement session. We only wish we'd had more time between the ceremony and reception to take more pictures, because for sure we would have loved them!

Great quality, pleasant people - VERY happy with our choice.

Our first photographer found out she was pregnant and couldn't do our wedding, less than a year out. Virginia was super helpful, and I was so glad to be able to get her on shorter notice!

Virgina and Tim were a pleasure to work with. They provided a photojournalistic approach to the wedding that we desired.

I am very picky about pictures of myself so I was very nervous about my wedding pictures. Virginia did an awesome job of making me feel comfortable and assuring me that she would not post any pictures she thought I would not like. She had some great ideas for outdoor pictures at the ceremony site that I would have never even thought of. When I first saw the pictures I was thrilled! They were absolutely incredible! I would without a doubt recommend Carden's to anyone. Virginia and her husband are really cool too!!

Our wedding is next year (I had to lie about the date so I could post this) but we just did the engagement shoot with the photographers and we couldn't have been happier! They are without a doubt the best photographers to work with and they know exactly how to get a great shot! We have only seen five photos from the engagement shoot & we are already in love with them. I cannot wait to see the rest I know they will be equally as beautiful.

Carden's were super flexible with pricing and packages. We told them our budget and they worked with us to get EXACTLY what we wanted. I was honestly shocked at how nice and how willing to work with us they were, most photographers have a set package that you cannot change. They also worked out an awesome payment plan with us which is very helpful for any bride, especially when you are starting to book wedding halls, DJs, and buy dresses that require a large down payment.

I have already recommended the Carden's to one of my friends who is getting married next summer & she is getting ready to book them. I recommend the Carden's to anyone who is getting married! They take flawless photos that capture how happy the couples are. I looked at a lot of photographers & I felt like they took nice pictures but that I could take those exact same pictures with just a really nice camera. A lot of pictures were just the couples sitting and smiling at the camera like they were getting their yearbook picture taken. The Carden's are very different, they don't just have you sit and smile at the camera, they make sure the pictures are very natural & create pictures that look like they came from a magazine. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the way everything went! I am looking forward to my wedding day for even more fabulous pictures!

Virginia and Tim photographed my wedding. They were so easy to work with. They are laid back and made me and my husband feel super comfortable. When I was looking for a photographer, it was getting frustrating for me, because I just could not find pictures that I really connected with. Then I found Carden's through facebook! An old friend of mine from high school had them photograph her wedding. She said they were pretty much perfect to work. When she sent the link to their blog, I knew I HAD TO HAVE THEM! After meeting with them in their studio the choice was obvious and I am so happy to have had them capture the best day ever!!!

Virginia and Tim were awesome to work work with. From the start of the planning process to after the wedding, they always responded to emails and calls and were extremely helpful in helping us come up with our wedding timeline. When we got our pictures back we were amazed. I felt like it was someone else's wedding and not even me, the pictures were so beautiful! They captured everything so perfectly and exactly how I wanted them to look. We could not be happier with our decision to use the Carden's. They are so talented in what they do and were so easy to work with on the day of. They were always calm and ready to take pictures of everything that was going on. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
