Fun, professional, great imagination, unique, affordable. Did an amazing job and made my day very stress free!
Gillian and her assistant were fabulous!!! We were all getting ready and she took all the cool pre-photos of the dress and flowers, and it literally took no time to get through all the bride/groom, wedding party, and family pics! We felt so special when we were on the beach by ourselves with her and it was literally no time until we were back inside enjoying the party with all our family and friends! I would recommend her to ANYONE that is looking for completely comprehensive service!!!!
Gillian of Carolina Studios is talented, charismatic, passionate, and a pleasure to work with. For our engagement shoot, she thoughtfully brought chilled champagne to the beach for us to toast our new life together. For the wedding, she rolled with a last minute location change due to weather and conjured up beautiful new shot ideas on the fly. We highly recommend Gillian and Carolina Studios.
Gillian is amazing, incredibly talented, flexible, very easy to get along with, creative, and always willing to go the extra mile for her clients. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
We can't say enough great things about this photographer. We met with one photographer before her and one after but it was a waste of our time. We had a great connection with her and couldn't have been more happy with our photos! You can't go wrong with this one!!
From the first conversation to the last Gillian was helpful and fun. Our engagement session was a blast and the pictures turned out beautiful. On the big day Gillian was an angel armed with a camera! She bustled my dress for me and offered suggestions throughout the wedding and even helped corral the guests for cake cutting and dances. I'm so grateful my new husband picked such a great photographer. I can't wait to see how our wedding shots turned out.
Gillian provided us with beautiful pictures from our wedding! She was amazing and I would recommend her to everyone!
I was so Happy we picked Carolina Studios to do this for our wedding.
Best Pictures ever taken and such great people to work with!
Gillian you were great to work with. Thank you for being a part of our day. The pictures are beautiful.
Gillian has a great personality and really personalizes her time with you. She tries hard to adhear to specific request
Gillian was wonderful to work with, she made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She was able to capture beautiful moments for us that we will always treasure.
Carolina Studios made us feel very comfortable while taking pictures. They were very natural and were good at making us laugh! The team was fun to be around and I would recommend them to any bride and groom!
Gillian is truly AMAZING! I was fortunate enough to work with her for our engagement session, my bridal portraits and our wedding photos. Her energy and enthusiasm are boundless and she gives tremendous attention to detail. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an extremely talented professional photographer.
Gillian did an excellent job making sure that we got all of the shots that were important to us on our weddin day. The pictures were incredible making it so hard for me to decide which to include in our wedding album.
Gillian was wonderful, we had so much fun! The quality of the pictures were breathtaking. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
We couldn't possibly think of a signle thing that we would have changed when it comes to our Wedding Day and Gillian's photography. Todd and I were introduced to Gillian during our Engagement session while we were visiting in Myrtle Beach. We fell in love with her personality. She made our engagement session truley special and gifted us with the most beautiful pictures.
We are from upstate New York so we were very dissapointed that someone as talented as Gillian was so far away and that we would have to find someone else for our Wedding. Who knew that Gillian would actually offer to come all the way out to Syracuse, NY and then drive an hour to our reception just to capture our special day.
Our wedding day brought some rain, cool weather and we ran into a few areas where we seemed to have lack of time for more photos. However, Gillian worked her magic and we have no doubt that our wedding pictures will be just as beautiful as our engagement session.
Thank you so much, Gillian Reinghardt for your dedication and for offering your services to Todd and I on our Wedding Day.
Gillian and her team were aweseome! They were so laid back and friendly, and put everyone at ease. A lot of fun to work with, and the photos are awesome!
Gillian was incredible to work with. She captured every moment exactly how I remembered it. Her attention to detail and ability to think outside the box made for some incredible pictures. Her fun loving personality was an awesome asset to our big day.
Carolina Studios is fan-freaking-tactic! Gillian is non stop during your entire wedding. If you do not get great pictures then you are just not meant to have your picture taken. Loved her vibe, enthusiasm, personality, everything. And her assistants were great also! Will recommend her for any pictures.
We were so happy with Gillian for our wedding. She was really helpful and responsive both before and after the wedding.
Our guests thought she was just great and so fun and professional. We were happy that she was able to help us get the pictures we were hoping for in the midst of our wedding day.
Thanks so much!
Dear future brides:
Picking the right photographer might be one of the most important decisions during the planning process.
I can honestly say: I can't stop watching our video or viewing our pictures that Gillian produced. My entire family is in complete awe over her incredible work. I get chills when I look at the pictures (good chills) Gillian was everywhere capturing every candid moment ... which is exactly what I wanted her to do. Nothing looked posey and we had such a great time working with her. I never thought I looked good on camera until Gillian got behind that camera. Don't even waste your time looking ... she is fun, smart and passionate about her job!
I can't wait to have babies so she can be a part of it all!
Gillian is awesome. If i had to have someone follow me around for a day, she is the person. Fun, felxable and very helpful. Takes what ever shots you want and others that she knows will look great. Can't wait to get all my pictures so i can show them off! Gillian is definatly a life time photographer for all my family needs....as it grows!
The first time I spoke with Gillian I felt like we clicked. Our first conversation was like talking to an old friend. I immediately choose her services and extremely happy about my decision. She was so accommodating and helpful from the very beginning. We did our engagement pictures in October and we received so many compliments about how wonderful the pictures came out. Due to the exceptional quality of the photos, we were able to use them on our save the dates and invitations. I highly recommend Gillian's macrophotography for upclose shots of your rings.
The day of the wedding went so smoothly. Gillian and her assistant, John, were there for me throughout the day. She helped me keep calm before the ceremony and was right there if I had a question about how to do something. She is quick and stealth, which will result in some amazing candid shots. Very patient with family members and keeps things moving!
I am hoping we can use Carolina Photo Studios services again!!!
When I started planning my wedding the first thing on my list was to find the perfect photographer, a know it was a little out of order but our wedding pictures had to be perfect! I met with a few photographers before I met with Gillian. As soon as Gillian and I met I fell in love with her work! She really is amazing; she fit my personality 100%! We combined a couple of her packages to fit what I was looking for, and she was so easy to work with. I knew I had to find someone that could work with anyone because my fiancé was not really into taking pictures and was not thrilled that I had set up an engagement session. When we talked to Gillian about the engagement session, Joe and I wanted something different and not the typical engagement posed pictures! We had so much fun and that was only just the beginning. My bridal portraits were just as wonderful! I hadn’t originally planned a bridal session but after the engagement, it was a must! I had too much fun that day with Gillian and Corey; we took pictures pretty much the whole day! Our wedding went so smoothly and I hardly even noticed Gillian and her crew! They did such a wonderful job and took a million pictures! When I got the wedding pictures back they were sensational! I was so impressed how perfect they came out. The day really does fly by and you need those pictures to remember how perfect the day went! I would highly recommend Gillian, she is wonderful with children and will make you husband laugh (which sometimes can be tough to do). I can’t wait to work with her again! Thank you to Gillian and her crew! I couldn’t be any happier that you were there to capture our beautiful day!

We were so pleased with Gillian and her assistants. So glad she was able to be part of our big day!! I would refer them any day with complete confidence!
Absolutely Awesome experience! Very talented photographer.
Gillian is fabulous at what she does - she takes amazing photographs and knows how to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera! She is upbeat and lovely to be around. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a quality photographer that cares about their clients!
Captured every perfect moment in our special day! Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
Carolina Studios did an amazing job at my wedding this past May! I had a destination wedding and Gillian was extremely flexible when it came to scheduling meetings. The prices were very reasonable! I could not have asked for a more professional photographer.
Gillian will not only be your photographer, but she will become your friend. When I started looking for photographers, I wanted somebody that was easy to talk and get along with. I met with a couple others before coming across Gillian and they all seemed so cold, and asking questions and getting information out of them was like pulling teeth. The first time I called Gillian we spoke on the phone for about an hour, just like we were old friends. I knew then she was the one. We did engagement pictures, the wedding, and newborn pictures when our son was born with Gillian, and all of the pictures are just FABULOUS! You will not regret choosing her for all your photography needs. I wish I wasn't moving, because otherwise Gillian would be our photographer FOR LIFE! :)
Gillian and her associate Michelle have been wonderful during the wedding process...from taking an afternoon full of engagement shots, capturing our wedding day and then working together to purchase items! They were so easy to talk to and made us feel very comfortable from the beginning. While walking through the streets of Charleston, S.C. for our engagement session we were amazed at how quickly we forget the cameras were there and just enjoyed ourselves. This continued on our wedding day and we were able to have some amazing candid shots due to their quick thinking and ability to "be everywhere". I would highly recommend Gillain and her studio to any bride who wishes to feel completely at ease and have 100% trust in their photographers!
If you are looking for a photographer in the Myrtle Beach area, Gillian is the best. She takes fabulous pictures! In addition, she was incredibly accomodating and so much fun to work with.
Make sure you express all of your ideas! This photographer is very open to new things and ideas. She is funny and makes you feel good in front of the camera. Just remember to have fun, because the best photos are the ones that show your true feelings.
Carolina studios is amazing, I choose Gillian to take our wedding photos back in 2008. The services and products she provided us with were top notch. My husband and I enjoyed working with her so much that when our son was born this past year we choose to go back to her for family photographs. She is very easy to work with and understands what you want.
Carolina Studios does such an amazing job with every client who uses Gillian.
She works closely with the couple and their family and guests to capture every special moment.
Any couple should be honored to have Gillian and Carolina Studios as their wedding
photographer. You can rest assured you have selected a top professional in her field.
Gillian is THE best by far and my absolute favorite Photographer to work with!
Great Work!! One of the best in the area!! She is a breath of fresh air & such joy to work with :)
Whenever I see that Gillian and Carolina Studios is photographing one of my weddings I can be sure the pictures will portray the beauty of the flowers and the vision my brides have strived for...
Gillian at Carolina Studios is the photographer of one of the most popular blog posts on my blog.
What do I love about her work?
Well, the quality of her shots are fantastic. She is able to capture those special moments as well as those important little details that alot of us forget about a year or two after the wedding.
I'd hire her to do my photos in a...
Gillian rocks it! She always makes you feel amazing and customizes her photography to suit you, never losing her creative edge. You can tell she loves her job!
I don't know anyone who doesn't love Gillian.

Welcome to Carolina Studios! My name is Gillian Reinhardt and I am the Artist, Owner, and Mastermind behind all you see on this website.
My art is my voice, a piece of me. I have to pinch myself daily because I get invited to peoples weddings not just to witness this beautiful event but to record it and tell the love story of 2 people for them to cherish for the rest of their lives. I just love what I do!
I consider myself not just a photographer but a storyteller. My job is not to take photographs of people but to tell their story. I want you to look back at your photographs and see not just what was but to remember the story behind the captured moment. I focus on expressions, emotions, and relationships because those are the items that trigger our memories.
My inspiration is my family. I could not have gotten luckier than when I met my fabulous husband Joe. We have a 8 year old princess named Alexis, and our 2 year old Queen (for those that know her, yes, she is the Queen) Sophia. Our dog Jeter rounds out this crazy crew. They challenge me every day and I can't imagine my life without them or any less hectic :)
I hope you enjoy my website but if you’re looking for that human touch, please give me a call. I would LOVE to get a cup of coffee and sit and chat.
