    Sarah and Terry were absolutely wonderful to work with from beginning to end. I am extremely picky about my pictures and photography (having a graphic design degree) and their work first caught my eye with their beautiful images and creative ways of shooting. They went above and beyond throughout this past year. Sarah and Terry did an amazing job with our engagement pictures in downtown Raleigh. We got so many compliments from family and friends. They even stayed an extra hour so they could get a few different location shots! Sarah made me and my husband feel totally at ease during the whole process and had great ideas with poses etc. During the past year, I had so many questions and she was quickly responsive to all my e-mails. The wedding day was so busy and such a blur as a bride, and I'm so glad we went w/ Carolina Media Star because they captured every moment and emotion with beautiful images and videography. We couldn't have asked for more professional, personal, and talented photographers. Thank you guys again for everything!!

    Carolina MediaStar is the the absolute best! They were seriously one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. As I was researching photographers, I kept going back to them and comparing other companies to Carolina MediaStar. I just knew we had to go with them and am so glad we did. They are the best value and all of their pictures are stunning! From the very beginning, Sarah was super responsive, detailed, and addressed all of my questions. She is so friendly and accommodating, and I wish I had met her in person. Terry shot our engagement pictures and then Terry and James did our wedding. We took 1 hour from our wedding package for the engagement pictures but Terry literally spent 3 hours going to 6+ locations on UNC campus so that I could get the engagement pictures I envisioned. It was the first time we took professional pictures together, so we felt awkward at first, but Terry was so fun and relaxed that we really opened up and had a great time. Everything went by so quickly on our wedding day but Terry and James were always there to capture everything for us. Terry will literally get on the ground to make sure he gets that perfect shot, and James is so detail-oriented -- they just worked perfectly together. They are a family company and I'm sure any one of them will produce amazing work. They edit every single picture they give you, which is incredible. Whatever small picky things I asked for, they accommodated and were so easy to work with. Even when the sun was close to setting, Terry and James showed us pictures they had just taken on their cameras and we were always so amazed at how incredible the photos already looked. They are so talented, experienced, and will deliver the most beautiful, vibrant photos you could ever ask for. So many of our guests keep asking us who our photographers were because they were so amazing and fun! We received 65 teasers (way more than I expected) and I can't wait to see the full portfolio! They are truly phenomenal.

    Carolina MediaStar's reply:

    WOW Thao, THANK YOU for this amazing review! You have been so wonderful to work with. You two looked like professional models in your engagements, but maybe that was just love shining through. I wish you all the best and MANY happy years. I have a "surprise" for you this week ;).
