You cannot make a better choice for your wedding photographer than Cary Pennington. Not only does Cary have exceptional talent, he is personal and places a sincere priority with capturing every important moment of your wedding day. He is creative, patient, professional, and like a family member when it comes to making the "subjects" comfortable and confident with every picture he tries to capture. He has his own family, and kids, so he displays that sincere personal touch when working with kids, and knows how important every part of the day is to the bride and groom. Photography is an evident passion for Cary, and never leaves you feeling like he wants the party or day to be over- he is with you thru the end. Cary has been the photographer for two weddings in my family, and recommend him to anyone who wants their perfect day captured in exceptional photography.

From the first day we met Cary he was amazing and very easy to work with. He was very accommodating to our schedules and made every photo shoot fun and memorable. Our families loved his professionalism, humor and we were very pleased with the final products that he produced! We absolutely recommend him for anyone who wants top quality photoswhile simultaneously having a blast doing it. We definitely will be using him for future photos!

I love taking pictures and looking at pictures from past vacations/events, so having a good wedding photographer was really important to me. We looked at booking a photographer before we booked any other vendors because the photos had to be perfect. After searching for photographers online for days, reading reviews, and looking through the work of the preferred vendors from our wedding venue, we decided that Cary was the photographer we wanted. We met with him later in the week, as well as several other photographers, and Cary was still our favorite by far. He had a lot of knowledge to share with us, was easy to talk to, and the photos he showed us were phenomenal.

On our wedding day, Cary had specific locations around the venue selected for photos, based on the lighting at that time of day. We didn't have to think about where to go next because he already had it set up for us. He even took photos of us with our dogs after the reception was over (it was a day time wedding). Dogs are really unpredictable in pictures, but Cary got some great shots of us with them. All of the other pictures he took were great also. The angles were really creative, and the colors look amazing. We were definitely not disappointed and would highly recommend Cary to any of our friends getting married in the future.

Cary is the best! He is so easy to work with and only wants his clients to be happy. He is quick to respond to emails/phone calls and will always work fast and efficiently. Besides that, his work is beautiful. We love every photo from our wedding. I have referred him to several friends and everyone has been thrilled with their photos.
