Scott was our wedding photography. Photography is such a big investment and Scott was worth every penny. We both live in the Atlanta area so my husband and I met him at a restaurant beforehand. This was so great because on the day of the wedding, I felt completely comfortable with Scott. Photographers are there for all the "private" moments with your Mom, Dad, close friends, and all the time with your brand new spouse, so being comfortable with him was so important. Both he and the 2nd photographer, Roger, blended into the background so I barely noticed them throughout the day-- rather than photographers for stand at the front of the aisle and they are all you can see. Our pictures came back earlier than expected and were exactly what we wanted. We spoke with Scott about our style and he did exactly that. He really listened to our needs and wants, and we were incredibly happy with him. His wife Cristen manages the business side of it and she was incredibly responsive and very helpful.

Scott + Adam are THE BEST! they make magic photos!!!!!

We hired them for an NYC portrait-turned-surprise-to-me-engagement session and then of course asked them to shoot our wedding the following year. They are thoughtful, creative, and don't take cheesy, posed photos. They shoot spontaneously, which produces one of a kind images. Our e-session was featured by 100 Layer Cake and our wedding photos will be featured on there as well.

Communication with Scotts adorable wife Cristen was always great and I feel that their pricing is adequate for the amount of talent and time that they put into their work. Honestly, I think they are worth more. I would have paid double. Theres no photographers in the industry that make images like this, try to find them, you wont. What I love about these two is that they have been photographers all their lives. They know their stuff, they just happen to love shooting weddings too.

Love these guys and could not be happier..
Thank you!!!

For the cost, the fact that you have to wait a year to receive your digital images on disc, and their unwillingness to be flexible on any of their packages, I'd say it wasnt worth it. We were disappointed, because a whole outside portion of our wedding was never even shot. This was significant, because the reception site is known for their beautiful gardens overlooking a river. A picture also wasn't taken of the church we got married in, which is the church I grew up in. We were told that the photographer would go a little early to the ceremony and reception sites to scope out the area to get good ideas for pictures. That was obviously never done. Not to mention, we were required to "over-night" our deposit fee to hold our wedding date, when the rates are already pretty expensive. Our wedding pictures are beautiful, but taking into consideration the cost and experience, I would not recommend them.

W. Scott Chester is the best. As soon as I saw an example of their pictures I knew they were the ones I had to have for my wedding at Serenbe. To save money, we worked with the associate photographer, Adam, who was a dream. Our pictures turned out SO beautiful, and I could not imagine another photographer doing as great of a job as they did. I can't tell you how many comments I got from friends and family stating that they were the most beautiful pictures they had ever seen. Of course I am partial, but they really are the most beautiful wedding pictures I have seen! Would totally recommend them 100%.

Scott and Cristen were an absolute joy to work from our initial meeting to engagement pictures, wedding day, and post wedding follow ups. Cristen was a wonderful resource and had plenty of recommendations on other essential vendors to make our day perfect in every way. Our engagement and wedding day pictures were soo creative and beautiful in every way- Scott had no qualms about rolling in the itchy grass in 80 degree weather to get the perfect shot.

It never gets old hearing how much people love your wedding pictures and the online slideshow made sharing our special day so much fun. It was also incredibly exciting to see our engagement pictures featured on the knot and weddings unveiled blogs and our wedding pictures featured on the southern weddings blog! I recommend Scott to everyone I know because I know they will love working with this wonderful husband and wife and fall in love with every picture they take.

I am so glad that I chose W.Scott Chester as my photographer! Scott and Cristen made my wedding planning so fun and easy. Cristen is super organized and helped me to remember all of the wedding day details that would be necessary. My husband is not really into taking pictures. However, Scott put him at ease and made our engagement session and wedding day pictures a blast! We are extremely thrilled with all of wedding photos. I would highly recommend them to any future brides!

W. Scott Chester's quality of photos is amazing and his wife Cristen does a great job running the business. There are some shots that we described in our client information sheet that we didn't end up getting taken, but I think it was more due to the short time at our ceremony site before the wedding than the fault of the photographers. They weren't very flexible with their package options (for example, they wouldn't substitute another service for the required engagement shoot), but they were very helpful with all of my questions and concerns and I love my wedding pictures. I would recommend them to anyone I know.

Scott was wonderful to work with on my wedding day. Even when I had my bride meltdown when things were running behind, he kept his cool and helped me keep mine - and we got the pictures we needed! His vision, his talent, his editing skills and the entire experience well exceeded my expectations. Scott's work was worth every penny and if I had to do it all over again, I'd hire Scott again without a moment's hesitation. I LOVE my wedding photos!!
