    Best South Carolina Wedding Photographer!

    We worked with Mell Bell of Richard Bell Photography. She took absolutely stunning photos that we will cherish forever. She was also professional, responsive, and kind. Throughout the night she went above and beyond to capture our special day. Although our beach wedding got rained out, she made sure we got the beach photos we wanted when the storm clouds parted. Highly recommend!

    Richard Bell Photography's reply:

    Awww -- thank you so much Shaina! What kind words. We were so happy to be a part of your sweet day.

    Amazing amazing amazing

    Nathan and Mike were incredible to work with. They made our day so special not just by their kindness and genuine character but because of how insanely creative they were. Nathan put so much thought into every shot while Mike made sure to catch those sincere moments. Both Nathan and Mike kept us laughing, feeling comfortable, and never letting us feel like we would get over having our picture taken.

    They sent me a sneak peek, and I INSTANTLY started to cry as I was so touched. They are true artists with a talent like I have never seen before. If you plan on having Nathan at your wedding, give him free creative control and watch what masterpiece he can deliver.

    If you haven鈥檛 hired them yet, you are a fool! They are worth everything and THEN some. Thank you guys for truly making our night incredible. We love you!

    Megan and Brandon
