Riverland studios was the perfect match for us. We had our engagement and wedding photos shot by Shannon. She was very kind and professional and was truly concerned about making us feel at ease and comfortable. We loved the quality of our photos. Shannon did a fantastic job capturing our big day especially paying attention to all details. We liked how easy the website was to use including payment. Noni did a wonderful job with editing and was very quick to get our photos back to us. Mat is very professional to work with and was great answering our questions and patient with us as well. Everyone was great to work with and we had such a positive experience with Riverland Studios. I would definitely recommend Riverland Studios!

There are not enough stars for Riverland. From start to finish the service and staff were incredible. When starting the search for a photographer I have to admit a lot of my decision was based on price point. After countless hours of research and multiple attempts at finding the right photographer we stumbled upon Mat and Jeanne at Riverland. At first glance I never imagined they would be within my budget but after working with Mat on creating a custom package for my day I felt confident that not only would I get all of the things I wanted, but I also wouldn't need a loan for these timeless photographs. Jeanne and I spoke multiple times before the event so when she arrived I felt confident she knew exactly what I wanted and not only did she produce, she handled my crazy family and 18 person bridal party with ease! To say I was impressed would be the understatement of the year! After the posed shots and the ceremony I didn't remember seeing Jeanne again until she came to say goodbye at the end of the night. I was actually a little nervous that she hadn't taken photographs! I couldn't have been more wrong. We received our first look shortly after arriving home and I was happy with them. They were so pretty and Brittany did a wonderful job editing them down! When we received the entire album, I was stunned. It literally took my breath away as I relived our entire day all over again just like I was there. Jeanne somehow managed to capture EVERY SINGLE SECOND. She didn't leave 1 thing out. For a day that goes by in such a blur, getting to relive it over and over again through her lense is something I can't be more grateful for! These images are not just timeless and gorgeous but they are memories that she was able to save for us that we can share with our family and friends forever! I can't think if anything more important and I couldn't recommend Riverland enough!

We had the pleasure of working with Cana Mcdonald through Riverland for our wedding pictures. Cana is so amazing and sweet and if you look at her previous work you will see an amazing photographer! From the moment she started taking pictures, she was on point making sure everyone's hair was in the right place, the lighting was great and ensuring we got all the photos we wanted while staying on our timeline. She even drove us back down to our ceremony site for sunset pictures and made us feel so comfortable. I love how she was taking pictures of every moment but you didn't feel like you were intruding on her. I've been to multiple weddings where the photographers are completely in the way or just noticeable and she was amazing at being there but not prohibiting guests from having a good time. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of a talented, photographer & just all around a gem!

I have nothing but good things to say about Marylou from Riverland Studios. I truly had a wonderful experience with her, both professionally and personally (she even helped my fasten my corset - it doesn't get much more personal than that). She went so far above and beyond what she was hired to do - especially assisting my 4-year-old daughter and I to get ready before the ceremony. She did a great job helping me to keep everything on schedule, especially since I was very distracted and having an extremely hard time focusing on "details" like that. Her direction while taking photographs and her energy throughout the ceremony and reception were amazing - she was everywhere! My father was also exceedingly pleased with Marylou, he has mentioned multiple times how impressed he was with "the photographer". He seriously wouldn't stop talking about her for days.

There's really no way to thank her enough - I wonder if she realizes that she's not only a photographer, but also provides a kind of vault for the safekeeping of memories, which can fade and disappear. Additionally, she was the "fly on the wall" who captured the details, moments, emotions, that my husband and I were too overwhelmed, busy, and otherwise unavailable to notice ourselves.

As of this writing, we've received our "sneak peek" photos and are awaiting the rest, but if they're as beautiful as the ones we have so far, we're in for a real treat! Thank you so much, Marylou, your truly made our day!

Updated: Just when I thought I couldn't be any more impressed with Marylou, I got my completed images back. Basically, she captured just about every detail, emotion, and important moment from before and during the ceremony, throughout the reception, and right up until our departure - and they're all beautiful. Marylou has provided me with something amazing, images of me with the most important people in my life, on one of the happiest days of my life. I will cherish them forever. Thank you again, Marylou!

Riverland Studios is an absolute joy to work with and I could not be happier that we chose them for our wedding day/elopement session! Prior to our big day, Mat was always super responsive to my questions and I was so relieved that booking with Riverland Studios was such an easy process. My husband and I could not have asked for a better photographer - Cana was fantastic! Not only is she super talented, but she's also so sweet and she made us feel totally comfortable during the time we spent with her.

Our pictures are gorgeous and turned out even better than we had hoped. We are having a belated wedding celebration in December and can't wait to use Riverland Studios again!

Working with Riverland Studios was absolutely the easiest and most fun part of planning our elopement! Brittany was amazing, Mat was amazing, the day was amazing! Since we eloped there were no friends or family around, but we truly felt that Brittany was able to capture the moment perfectly and we have these beautiful pictures to share with friends and family. I know that when we are ready to have pregnancy pictures taken, we will travel to Charleston to have Riverland take these if they are willing and able!

Riverland photography is one of the absolute best photography businesses in the low country and they go above and beyond expectations. We loved our photographer as well as working with the business owners and other employees. They're extremely helpful from scheduling, to working out details on the wedding day, and the photography and editing is just beautiful. Every special moment from our engagements, bridals, and the wedding were captured artfully and just as they were that day.

Shannon took the time to speak with us multiple times prior to the wedding to make us feel as comfortable as possible and that our needs would be met. Having planned a wedding from long distance, this communication was invaluable! We are so appreciative of the gorgeous shots taken by such a lovely woman! THANK YOU!!!

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Shannon and Riverland as an overall business. The pictures are beautiful that I am going to be keeping forever.

From the beginning, Riverland Studios was a dream come true. Their services and costs are outlined in incredible detail on their website--which cannot be said at all of most studios--and they offered incredible flexibility beyond block-packages. The photographers' pages and portfolios on their website allowed us to explore the various photography styles available in great depth and while they were all exceptional, Shannon's portfolio stood out in particular. After looking at probably two dozen portfolios before coming across the Riverland Studios crew, the fact that the subjects of Shannon's pictures all appeared comfortable, natural, and happy really stood out to us. Sure enough, she put me completely at ease during my portrait session, for which I had been quite nervous. While there certainly is a posed element to wedding photos, especially the formal group shots, Shannon engaged our wedding party in such a way that everyone really could just be themselves. The expressions and reactions are genuine. There's nothing stiff or awkward about any of them. We are all so happy with the final products, which were delivered to us very soon after the wedding on a flash drive, with files in high resolution for printing and low resolution for posting on social media. I greatly prefer this to just ordering prints because we have more flexibility to decide which prints we want while still having the files for viewing pleasure. Beyond the value and quality of their products, the staff at Riverland couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Mat must have answered several hours worth of questions I had along the way and was always eager to do so; Lucy kept me in the loop on the progress of the editing and proofing; and Shannon has to be one of the kindest individuals I've ever had the pleasure to meet. She's hard-working, organized, compassionate, and sincere. Her passion and enthusiasm for her work is evident in every interaction and working with her was a joy throughout.

Riverland Studios was amazing to work with! Jennings shot our wedding and was awesome! Living in NYC and having a wedding in Charleston meant our first meeting with our photographer was the day of our wedding. She was very professional and made both of us feel very comfortable. The pictures turned out incredible! During family group shots at the wedding she was quick and organized which let all guests (including bride and groom) get back to the reception. Her candid pictures are the greatest, as she definitely has the perfect eye! We received pictures so quickly after our wedding and it was a perfect way to re live every moment of the day!

After interviewing numerous photographers a friend recommended Riverland Studio’s in Charleston. We decided to go with Marylou based on her experience and photography style. Our first time meeting was for our engagement photos and we knew instantly that we had made the right choice. Marylou takes amazing photographs but her eye for a perfect backdrop is what really impressed me. Every shoot, engagement, bridals, and the wedding were absolutely gorgeous! She was able to capture all the traditional moments that we wanted to remember while still keeping with the overall artistic feel I really loved. Throughout the whole experience I was in constant contact with Marylou making sure she knew exactly what we wanted. We created a pinterest board which really helped with the must have photos. Riverland Studios handled all the editing and did a fantastic job! They provided me with a sneak peak of each session before all the photos were ready which I really appreciated. Waiting weeks for photos is tough so the sneak peak was a really big hit for my family and me. Mat and the whole team made the experience as painless and enjoyable as possible. I highly recommend Marylou and Riverland Studios!

If you are looking for a phenomenal wedding photographer in the Charleston area, look no further than Caroline Howard at Riverland Studios! My husband and I used her on our wedding day on Kiawah Island and she was phenomenal. Even though she was the consummate professional she made us feel comfortable in front of the camera which resulted in gorgeous pictures. Thank you Caroline for capturing our special day!

I can't cay enough great things about Riverland Studios Photography! Wes and I were lucky to have Jeanne shoot our engagement photos in May. We live in Ohio, so coming to Charleston we didn't know much about the area. Jeanne provided great suggestions on where we could get our pictures taken. We ended up going to Boone Hall Plantation and the water front park. Both places were amazing, and the pictures turned out better than we could have ever imagined! Jeanne was so flexible on where and how we took pictures. She gave instructions as well as let us decide what kind of pictures we wanted. Over all, Wes and I are so happy with every single one of our pictures and we are so glad we traveled the 10 hours to have Riverland Studios take our pictures. We would recommend this company to everyone looking for unique and beautiful pictures! We will cherish them for the rest of our lives! Thank you Jeanne!

I had Priscilla as my main photographer and Lucy was the second photographer for my wedding day. There are not enough great things that I could say about this company. From day 1 they were always on top of things and responded to my emails quickly. Photography was the most important vendor for me so I looked at a LOT of photographers and I had very specific requests with my photographs and i am so glad I chose Riverland Studios. Priscilla is very organized and really listened to what i was looking for in my wedding photos. I also did an engagement session and bridal session with her and she is so much fun! She takes amazing photos, I wish she could take photos all the time! You really can't go wrong with Riverland Studios!!

Working with Riverland for our wedding was an amazing experience. Caroline was our main shooter and we had an absolute blast with her! She really listened to what was important to us and she was able to handle all of our weird off the wall requests (specifically our horse head mask that we forced into half of the wedding pictures!). The formal photos with our families went really smoothly and quickly. We didn't feel like we wasted ANY time away from our reception to finish up with pictures because she was so quick and efficient! She even stopped traffic on King St. for us to get some shots that we wanted.

We would use Riverland studios over and over and over again! We couldn't be happier with out pictures and we really feel like we have EVERYTHING from our night captured!

Caroline was the perfect photographer for our wedding. Getting married on New Year's Eve made for a very different type of wedding as well as schedule for the day of the event. Caroline adapted amazingly and always seemed to be in the right place at the right time for each shot! She always had just the right about of encouragement and instruction to keep everyone involved and enthused in taking photos. She also blended seamlessly into the event. One of the most impressive qualities was how she made photos fun for the groom. He is not much of a photo-taker, and he actually enjoyed the process! We couldn't have been happier with Caroline and Riverland Studios for working so closely with us to make our day everything we could hope for!

Mat and I exchanged emails several times and always answered all my questions, we worked with Priscilla - we had a face to face consultation, and she couldn't have been nicer. She was open to my ideas and has a great eye for capturing candid moments. We felt very comfortable around her and our pictures show it.

Mat was especially helpful and responsive. Priscilla shot our photos and she was great to work with - she is friendly and had really great, creative ideas for shots. We just got back the "sneak peek" pictures and they look amazing! I can't wait to see the rest of them. Very, very happy with Riverland Studios and would highly recommend!

We were fast friends upon meeting and I was so excited for her to shoot our big day! I honestly cant say enough good things about Shannon and working with Riverland as a whole. They are all very down to earth, easy to communicate with, and super willing to work with you and accommodate all of your photography dreams! As a new photographer myself, I am a self proclaimed "photo snob" and super picky about things I like and I can say with 100% confidence that there is not a thing I would change about my pictures or my experience with Riverland and Shannon. Super talented, very professional, and really awesome people!

Everyone (from the owner to the photographer) at Riverland was very easy to work with, and responded quickly to e-mails. The value was excellent! No extra fees to get a DVD with your photos, like a lot of other studios charge. They also do a great job of getting to know the couple before the big day, so they have a good feel for what you need and expect.
We worked with Shannon, and she was great! Not intrusive, not bossy, but captured all of our important moments.

Caroline Howard was our photographer and she by far exceeded our expectations. Caroline truly captured every moment of our big day! Every time I look back through our wedding album I am so thankful for all of the amazing photos we have because of Caroline's true talent and art, Caroline was a dream to work with. She was down to earth, easy going, and very professional without being overbearing or controlling. It was always clear to us that she was there for us and truly just wanted to capture each and every special moment of our big day. There was no hidden agenda with her, just a passion to take beautiful creative photographs to give Blake and I lasting memories forever. I would recommend Caroline and Riverland Studios to any bride & groom especially if you are looking for more than just your typical posed wedding pictures. Their work is one of a kind. We couldn't have been happier! LOVE THEM!

We met with Brooke a few months before our big day, and she was so sweet and was very knowledgable with the whole process. As a first time bride, she really put my mind at ease because I knew she would have a schedule to get all the shots we wanted.
Riverland Studios also impressed us with the thoroughness in their process. They occasionally sent us questionnaires that got all the information they needed from us in order for them to capture all the important people and moments on our wedding day. The questionnaires were spread out well enough so that it did not seem overwhelming to fill them out.
When our wedding day finally arrived, Brooke had arrived early to scope out great locations for our shots, and was even early to meet with us to get started! Things of course were already a bit hectic with all of the girls and guys getting ready, and Brooke sensed she needed to take charge to get everyone where they needed to be for her shots. We went to two locations before our ceremony to take photos, and it was all due to Brooke keeping everyone moving and on schedule that we were able to make it to our ceremony on time!
She was so polite while doing her job and you could tell how much she loved it because she would get so excited when she got a great shot! She did her job so well that she was noticeable when she needed to be but faded into the crowd when she didn't need to be. My dad even mentioned to me that he didn't even notice her during the ceremony and reception - he was shocked that she got all the shots that she did because he barely even saw her! Overall I would definitely recommend Brooke and Riverland Studios to anyone because our shots turned out phenomenally!

After looking at a number of studios and portfolios, my husband and I chose to work with Marylou from Riverland Studios at our Charleston, SC wedding. Riverland came highly recommended by the venue and did not disappoint! They were very professional and available to me by both email and phone, ready to answer any questions I had during the planning process. Marylou herself was a delight to work with, I hardly knew she was there the day of the wedding and the photos we got were better than we could have hoped for. We also decided to do a day after shoot in Charleston and at the beach and she went above and beyond to make sure we got all the shots we wanted. Couldn't have chosen a better photographer!

Literally everything about this company is fantastic. Great prices, great photographers, awesome attitudes they are just overall a great studio. I only had one photographer at my wedding, Shannon, and she was great. She has a lot of skill and is really easy to work with she listens well to what the bride/groom, and family wants and makes great compromises. She even gave us a few extra minutes of time and caught our cake cutting, and eating and some dancing. I love all of my photos and wish I could have taken more.

Priscilla and the whole Riverland crew were so wonderful. They responded to my emails and questions so quickly and with such kind professionalism. Pricilla was such a joy to work with. She was personable and professional. We had a hard time with the price at first, but it's very comparable for the area, plus they give a print release with their photos, a lot of studios don't. My wedding photos are beautiful! It poured rain on our day, and it was stressful and chaotic, having to switch to our back up plan last minute, Priscilla was so helpful, and you would never know what a dreary day it was by looking at our photos. She got some very unique shots, we wanted a photojournalistic style, and she definitely delivered. We would definitely recommend Riverland Studios!

We used Jennings from Riverland Studios and she was great. She had a great attitude and a lot of patience (perfect for our crazy family and friends) and the pictures came out fantastic - the perfect blend of vintage glamour we were looking for. She made herself available to meet for coffee before our event to get to know each other and offered to have us come by the studio (but we ended up being too busy). The studio itself was very responsive/professional and kept us in the loop regarding when we could expect our photos, how to order prints etc. All in all it was one of the least stessfull vendor experiences we had!

We had the pleasure working with Shannon at Riverland Studios and we were so pleased with both her personality and her professional work. She is a wonderful photographer who captured our personalities and concepts of how we envisioned our memories from the big day. We have also had so many compliments from all our friends and family about how many of our photos are magazine-esque. Shannon took the time to print out examples of shots we had wanted to help us as we had very limited time. She was really great at keeping us on track to fit everything in--even our photo shoot down at the beach! We would certainly book Shannon again and recommend her and Riverland Studios to anyone--family, friend or otherwise!

Riverland Studio was very professional and played a major role in making our day so special for us. Jeanne was able to capture some moments that will last a lifetime. We received the photos in a very timely manner as well. Jeanne was a delight to work with and knew exactly what we were looking for in our pictures.

I was very pleased with the photos of the venue and reception. Pre ceremony, I was sad that my husband and his groomsmen did not have many photos ( The two photographers stuck together and did not split up to take double the picutes) so that we would have a timeline like album of the day's events. I also was upset that I was asked whom I wanted pictures of post ceremony after filling out a detailled questionaire for Riverland with the shots I wanted. I would refer this vendor but would caution about lack of organization pre and post ceremony
