What appeals to me most about photography is that it's a moment captured in time. My style has a stong sense of storytelling, from the simpilest deatil, to the over-whelming emotions of the day, I create images to be everlasting. Twenty years from now when you open up your wedding album I want you to smile, cry and laugh hysterically all over again Read less

Carol was GREAT!!! I really didn't even know she was there the entire day and the pictures came out fantastic!!! She was extremely responsive when I was originally looking for a photographer and very, very easy to talk to about some of my ideas. We were also very lucky that we got our pictures back from her in about two weeks!!! I loved every picture, and I can honestly say that I would recommend anyone to choose Carol as the photographer at their wedding!!!

Carol was a great photographer! She met with us before signing the contract on a weekend just so we could review her work. We loved all the pictures we saw and knew Carol was our girl right away. She was also prompt, professional, and polite at all times in our interactions with her. With the package we chose, we got a complimentary engagement session which gave us tons of great pre-wedding pictures to enjoy along with getting some experience being in front of a professional's camera. On our wedding day, Carol did a great job and exceeded all our expectations. We would recommend Carol to anyone looking for beautiful and classic photos. She was also very easy to reach via phone and e-mail.

Choosing Carol McDonald as our wedding photographer was one of the best choices my husband and I made for our wedding in October! Carol shot our engagement photos, our wedding day photos, and even a fun boudoir session with photos I could use as a wedding gift for my hubby! Carol was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process! Her personality is fun and easygoing and we had an absolute blast during each photo session! Carol has the ability to make you feel completely comfortable in front of the camera, and it really shows in her photos. She was so great with responding quickly to the many questions I had and was flexible with our schedules. The only issue we had was trying to choose which photos to use in our wedding album because we loved them all so much!! I would recommend Carol McDonald to any bride who is looking for beautiful, fun, and timeless wedding photos with a photojournalistic flare!

We found Carol through a google search and fell in love with her website. Carol's style is creative and her website is very professional. Carol is very accommodating and always available to her clients. She is easy going, flexible, but also comes to the tables with very creative ideas for capturing every moment of the wedding day.

Most of the girls in my bridal party are from major markets like Philadelphia and New York City, and they were impressed with Carol's professionalism and her product as compared to other high-priced, big city photographers.

Carol devoted the entire day to us for a very reasonable rate. She worked diligently during the reception, getting a variety of candid shots of tons of people in the crowd. I, too, had a hard time whittling down which pics were my very favorite to put in the wedding album.

If you are a modern bride with creative ideas and a flair for those candid moments captured on camera, Carol is the photographer for you. She is not stale like all those other photographers in northeast PA. She will give you top-market products with an expensive look for NEPA rates.

My husband and I are more than happy to recommend Carol McDonald Photography! We worked with Carol for our September 2011 wedding and were elated with the results. Her professionalism, creativity, commitment to art, and end-product were outstanding. My father, a NYC photographer, assisted us in selecting Carol. He was impressed with her portfolio, stating that it stood apart from her NEPA competition (“hands-down, more creative”) and was comparable to any NYC high-end photographer.

Carol offered us a free engagement shoot and was accommodating when we asked to do it at a county fair. She seemed to have just as much fun as us! On the day of our wedding, Carol managed to capture the most candid and beautiful moments without being intrusive. She followed our requests and was able to balance formal shots with photojournalistic shots, as we wished. She arrived at the bridal suite around 11:00 AM and worked until 10:00 PM, showing no sign of slowing. Her fee for service was reasonable, and Carol was one of the only photographers we considered that offered full-day service without a time limit. Though we only met once before the wedding, Carol felt like an old friend by the time the wedding began.

While it did take longer than expected for the photos to arrive (just over 2 months), Carol gave us a gift certificate to purchase photos due to the delay. Looking at the photos for the first time, I began to cry. Carol managed to capture the emotionality of each moment with her shots, truly painting a complete story of our event. We also appreciated how she narrowed-down our options to three or four of the best of each angle/subject and offered them in black-and-white and color, allowing us to build an album to our liking.

In sum, we highly recommend Carol and look forward to working with her again.

Carol was a wonderful photographer and as flexible as we could have asked for! Planning a wedding from out of town was more difficult than we imagined, but Carol was always available via phone or email to talk and answer questions. The engagement photos were wonderful - and she even helped us pick the perfect fall weekend to do them. And for any brides worried about rain on their big day - I was married as a hurricane hit the east coast last year. i was petrified my pictures would be awful but Carol reassured me that overcast days were the best for photography - and she was right! She quickly got all the pictures we wanted done, without me or my dress getting drenched. I would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in northeast PA. Don't hesitate to ask for exactly what you want - I did, and we got it all!

We hired Carol McDonald Photography and it was the biggest vendor mistake we made. We spent $2,000+ for a day full of wedding photos on a disc and we honestly don't have 1 photo that we feel is good enough to frame. We contacted the photographer afterward because I thought she would like to know how we felt, and desperately thought she would somehow be able to fix them. She replied that she isn't interested in hearing what we have to say...this is her style, and she thinks the photos are great. I don't believe it is style, I believe it is incompetence! She passed out cards to everyone at the wedding, and not one person we spoke with that viewed the photos disagreed. We collected photos from our guests afterward because they were better than what the photographer delivered. This has been the biggest disappointment of our wedding. I had to rate her 0 in every category, looking back on our wedding photos it doesn't matter how responsive or professional she was....because the product she delivered is a mess.

Carol was truly fantastic. From start to finish, she made the whole photography process a breeze. She truly spent the time and detail to ensure that our experience was what one would expect.

Photography was one of the things that I was "crazed" about for my wedding. I searched and interviewed many photographers because I really felt that our pictures would be the one thing that we would always have. Having the right person was really important to me. I can honestly say that you will not be disappointed if you choose Carol.

Carol was an amazing photographer! She was always very helpful and attentive. She was always available and travelled to me many times (including my engagement session which was in West Chester, PA and my wedding in Bethlehem, PA). Her photos were so beautiful that I had to take a lot of time to narrow them down for my album. She is also very fun and comfortable to work with (she was able to make my husband laugh and smile in the pictures, which can be very difficult!) My favorite thing about her is the artistic viewpoint she has. My pictures really were amazing! Thank you Carol!
