Wow what a great photographer!! Looking through a handful of 5 star photographers in the triad it wasn't hard to justify choosing McCardell... I think every photographer has their own "style" and McCardell photography is unique. I got the pleasure of working with Johnathan (although his wife also does photography) what a great eye!!! He will look up at the sun and the clouds and just know when and where he can get the best shots. He doesn't waste a second with a picture that he knows will be no good. That's the value that he brings... I did a bridal shoot and a wedding album and upon choosing pictures for both Johnathan pretty much had them layed out the way I would of done it with the very best pictures... needless to say there wasn't very much editing on our part. He goes to work and he doesn't play around. The day of our wedding we got several comments of how hard the photographer was working. It was pretty hot and we were all sticky and Johnathan was practically dripping wet and he seemed to enjoying every minute of it. Everywhere I turned he was right there, never missed a beat and out of all 700 something photos that we ended up with in the end it was very hard to even say that we would of tossed ONE photo. I mean they were ALL so incredibly good. Granted, we got married at the Graylyn Estate so we already had a BEAUTIFUL background but I would say the most impressive skill Johnathan had was utilizing every spare minute to make sure we got alll the family photos etc that we wanted. And I like that he doesn't make you do these crazy poses that make you look so unatural. His techniques are SUPERB and we knew we had the BEST from the beginning and I was shocked at how quickly he got everything back to us! McCardell photography = Proffesionalism in EVERY aspect.Sent on 07/05/2017

We loved working with McCardell Photography for our wedding in October. We interacted primarily with Jonathan and he was so friendly, responsive, and personable. We got our photos back about three weeks after our wedding and we absolutely love every single one! We are so grateful that all of the special moments from our wedding day were so beautifully captured!Sent on 04/09/2019

Jonathan and Renee were an absolute photography dream team for my May 27th wedding! They have such a creative way of capturing the perfect lighting and angles in every picture. My bridal party and family commented that the McCardell's are personable, professional and fun to be around! I got my pictures back within two weeks of my wedding and I love every single memory that was captured! Every time I contacted the McCardell's during the planning process, they responded very promptly and made me feel that I had hired the best photographers around. The McCardell's make you feel like you are family. I was honored that they were such a big part of the happiest day of my life!Sent on 06/27/2018
McCardell Photography is top notch. I was amazed at the results of our mutual clients' wedding day. There are some technical "challenges" I check to make sure a photographer is "professional". They passed the test in flying colors. Not only can they work in any condition, but their work overall is soooo lovely!
McCardell Photography has been in business for a long time. There's a reason for that! They recently shared some images of our horse and carriage from a wedding we did together at Belmont Events in Reidsville. Gorgeous photos. Thank you, Dianne Duffy Carolina Weddings and Wagons
Jonathan and Renee have performed many weddings together. Their work is more than being great photographers; their photos tell a story about the subject---what that person was feeling or thinking when that shot was taken. Above all else they're just as easygoing as can be. Highly recommended.
