John and Rene worked with us to customize a "package" that worked with our needs (second wedding) and budget. John's artistic eye was evident in the proofs. He captured the emotion of the event, and his work now hangs in framed prints down the length of the hallway in our new home. If you are thinking that photography is an expense you can do without, think again. We would have regretted not having these beautiful keepsakes.Tthanks John and Rene!
McCardell Photography was perfect! Our wedding day pics as well as engagement and bridal portraits were flawless. Jonathan and Renee were easy to work with, professional, and creative. I honestly could not have asked for anything more! If you want great photos done by people who love what they do, and it shows- go with McCardell!
Our wedding photos were a top priority to me so selecting the perfect photographers for our wedding day was a big deal. My husband and I spent a tremendous amount of time researching photographer options all over within a two hour radius of our wedding location and in several states. We scrutinized McCardell's blog and website and sent them long lists of questions. They were friendly yet professional every step along the way. We loved that their photos captured moments and not just staged them. It takes a special eye for that. We have gotten countless compliments about the photos and it has been nearly impossible to narrow down to our top favorites because there are so many we love! The day of the wedding Jonathan and Renee made us feel completely at ease and captured all the shots we wanted. It was an extra bonus to have a husband and wife team. That was our preference because husband and wives teams read each other so perfectly and work together in the best possible ways. Thanks again McCardells!
Jonathan and Renee were fantastic. The captured all the details from the wedding we were looking for. They came up with creative poses for my wedding party without me having to ask for them, and the wedding book we ordered was breathtaking. They made our day so special.
Jonathan and Renee are not only amazing at what they do, they are even better people! We could not have been more pleased with all of our photos. They were stunning! We allowed them to do our engagement session, my bridal portraits, as well as the big day. They captured every single special moment. I would highly recommend these 2 love birds to any and everyone.
Jonathan and McCardell Photography are absolutely amazing. From the second he arrived until the last moment he made me, my husband, and everyone at the wedding extremely comfortable. He was extremely flexible, accommodating and fun to work with. He went above and beyond to make the day extremely special and that we were happy. I would highly recommend Jonathan and McCardell Photography for your wedding or other event.
Amazing amazing amazing pictures. Very easy to work with. Thank you for taking pictures that will last a lifetime!
Amazing photographers. I was lucky enough to have both Jonathan and Renee taking pictures on my wedding day and they capture some of the best pictures that you may never even think of having them take. They are also well worth the money, they are very great at getting pictures back to you in an amazing amount of time, they are also very good at answering any questions you have no matter when it is. I love what they did with both my bridal portraits and my wedding day. I wouldn't pick anyone else but them!!
My husband and I decided to get married when we found out we would be welcoming our daughter into the world- unfortunately that left us with 3 months to wedding plan! Luckily for us Jonathan and Renee had an open date for the day we wanted to get married. Renee had a wedding that day so we worked with Jonathan for the majority of our experience- we did our engagement photos in downtown Greensboro and he did a wonderful job of getting us to relax and laugh- my family and friends raved over he was able to really capture "us" in the photos. The day of the wedding was a complete fiasco- the weather had been sunny with a high of 75 until the day leading up to the rehearsal dinner when a tropical storm decided to make its way through the coast. The day of the wedding was drizzling and in the 50s- my wedding was an outside wedding but Jonathan and his assistant photographer were great at working with the weather. We worked around it to get the shots we needed. My father had surprise fireworks at the wedding which made for amazing photos and Jonathan never miss an opportunity for a photograph but he was never obtuse- you can tell he is a true professional. When I received my final wedding images I was completely amazed that Renee and Jonathan had captured and edited the photos so that someone looking at the photos would have never known how miserable the weather was- just what an amazing time it was with friends and family. I recommend them as wedding photographers to anyone looking for quality photos and a reliable professional friendly photographer!
Renee' McCardell and her assistant did an awesome job capturing every event of the afternoon and evening.
Very pleasant to work...
We could not be more thrilled with our wedding photos by McCardell Photography!! Jonathan and Renee have perfect personalities for their job, as they are laid back and also discrete, capturing memories from the special day without standing out as ‚Äúthe photographers.‚ÄĚ My husband and I genuinely had fun with them during our wedding shoot, laughing together and enjoying the day. It is clear that the McCardells love what they do. Their artistic creativity speaks for itself. It has been a privilege to work with them for both engagement and wedding photos. Our thanks to them for preserving once in a lifetime moments!
This team is AMAZING. It poured on our wedding day and I was terrified that there would be no good photos. Ahm, we keep getting asked if we're models in a magazine because the photos are so good! And let's talk about how incredibly nice and flexible they are to work with! Every time I look at our photos, I'm amazed! Best team ever!
Jonathan is an amazing photographer. We got a lot of shots that we didn't think we'd see, and didn't even realize that it was happening. His wife wasn't able to attend, but the woman he did have was amazing as well. They seemed to be everywhere! They were very easy to work with, and they were great with setting up the family members for the shots. It was just wonderful
We got married Oct 9, 2010 and I wouldn't change anything about my day! I LOVE the McCardells's! They were absolutely the best and worth every penny we payed them. Not only did they do my bridal portraits and engagement pictures but the wedding day pics were absolutely gorgeous! The entire team were great to work with and answered all my stupid emails! Cant wait to work with them again! (Baby pics?) Thanks again, Paula Jones Wertheim
My wedding photos were so amazing, I couldn't be more pleased. I frequently get compliments of all the pictures the McCardell's did for me! I know one of my bridesmaids has already decided to use them when she gets married! Very professional, highest of quality pictures! LOVE LOVE LOVE all of their work!
Jonathon and Renee made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire engagement session and wedding ceremony. The quality of their pictures is completely worth it! That were so much fun to work with! I was use them in the future for special events! They are very down to earth people. The pictures that we received for our wedding is exactly what we were looking for! Thanks Jonathon and Renee!
Jonathan and Renee are not only professionals, but great people that genuinely care about helping make the photos exactly what you want!
McCardell Photography is definitely a step above when it comes to photography. Jonathan and Renee were amazing to work with. They are both so innovative, and the end result was phenomenal. I am so very pleased with my bridal portrait and wedding photos. Not only are they so talented, but they are both so kind and friendly..and made me feel so comfortable. I can't imagine anyone else shooting my bridal/wedding..thanks guys!!
I am THRILLED that I had McCardell Photography as my photographers on my wedding day and for my bridal portraits! I get compliments on my photographs DAILY! I HIGHLY recommend them!
Of all the vendors that we worked with for our wedding, McCardell photography was our absolute favorite. First and foremost, they take AMAZING pictures. That is obviously the most important thing. But they're also just an extremely fun couple to work with. We got along so well with them, which is important because you end up spending a lot of time with them (we also did an engagement shoot). They had lots of great ideas and options, both for photos and for the ensuing products. They turned our engagement shoot pictures into a photo guestbook which is now one of our most treasured possessions. They're easy to get a hold of and extremely professional. In all of the stress leading up to the wedding, my wife and I would often say "Well, no matter what happens, at least we know the pictures will be amazing."
They are definitely on the expensive end of the spectrum, and will probably be outside of certain people's budgets, but you definitely get what you pay for and more.
