Look no further - Don is a true OG!
I can not even begin to do Don justice with this review. He is simply amazing. We had 75 guests at our wedding, so we only hired him (no additional photographer or assistant). I can not believe how quickly he got around and captured EVERYTHING! Looking through the photos, it looks like there were multiple photographers running around. He is a magician and an absolute artist. He is also hilarious and sarcastic, which fit into our family and friends so perfectly. Honestly, he felt like he was just another fun guest at our wedding. 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend!!!Sent on 05/31/2019

Don Mears is hands down the best! Look no further -- he is worth every penny! Don and his wife Lindsey were able to blend in the background on our wedding day and capture all the beautiful interactions and details that flew by us in the moment. I normally hate taking time away from events to do staged photos, but Don made the experience painless. He is a expert on finding great spots for photos so you don't have to worry at all about planning!Sent on 08/27/2018

Don was AMAZING! From the beginning, we knew he was going to be a good fit. His calm, relaxed demeanor was exactly what our wedding needed. My husband felt weird being posed and photographed but after our engagement session and really getting to know Don he looked forward to more photos! Don was lighthearted when he needed to be but also serious about getting the perfect shot. He was great for my bridal portraits. We were nervous because of the weather changes in spring and flowers not blooming at Maymont so we got an incredible opportunity to shoot at 2 locations and Don was fully on board! On the wedding day, it was hectic and we asked a lot of him with a long list of must-have pictures with a lot of people but he did it and never lost his cool! He got a great picture of EVERYONE invited to the wedding in front of the cathedral which was not easy but it turned out amazing. I asked for a night picture downtown on Cary St. with the cobblestones and he was so dedicated to the shot he laid in the middle of the street to get the perfect shot and it was beautiful, everything I wanted it to be! He also did things I wouldn't have even known was possible like illuminating under my dress (yes, it sounds weird but it looked amazing!). Finally, what really made my day was the next morning after, I had family come up and say that if they wanted a picture he never said no. Even his second photographer was awesome, they never said no to any picture! It was awesome to feel like I didn't have to worry about this major part of the wedding; he put us completely at ease!Sent on 09/26/2018
