    Love song!

    We couldn't have chosen a better photographer! Song not only did our engagement photos but our wedding on May 15, 2021! Not only do we love her, our family and friends adored her and talked about how great Song was. Thank you, Song for everything! You're the best!

    Joyful & Passionate

    Working with Song MADE my wedding day! She was so kind, so superior, and SO skillful before, during, and after our wedding day. She was very easy to work with and flexible with scheduling. Her smile and happiness honestly made me SO HAPPY. I personally received praise for the awesome attitude and savvy work ethic of Blooming Dreams Photo at the wedding ceremony and reception from numerous guests and family. Her generosity, humor, and creativity was very memorable and rare, in a great way. Song will always be recommended by me to anyone.

    Absolutely wonderful!!

    Song was the BEST!! My favorite wedding vendor to work with! We used her for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She is incredibly responsive - like send an email at 8:30 get a response by 8:40 kind of responsive, haha! She's very kind, sweet, cheerful, and professional! And her photos are AMAZING! I chose her because she really captures the feel of the day! Emotions and memories beyond just the traditional posed photos you often get at weddings. Her attention to detail and creativity really shine! We have wonderful engagement and wedding photos that we will cherish for years to come. We loved her so much my parents also hired her to take my little sister's high school graduation/senior pics! We can't recommend Song enough!

    Best experience, most amazing photos

    My career involves a lot of event planning and Song is the BEST photographer I have ever worked with. She has that golden combination of great technical skill along with that certain "something" artistic talent. She is a true professional - organized, communicative, flexible, and a true joy to work with. You will be delighted at her attention to detail in the planning process and all the sweet little touches of things she sends in the mail and over email.

    My friends and family kept commenting on how hard a worker she was and how they couldn't believe how many beautiful photos we got out of the engagement session and the wedding. My mom kept lamenting, "I can't choose which photos to order, there are too many good ones!" My fiance was initially a skeptic of spending anything over $1k on a photographer but he has completely changed his tune. Song was worth every dime. She knows how to capture those beautiful spontaneous moments and to help everyone to relax and really open up in front of the camera. I just can't say enough good things about working with her!

    The Cecil Wedding

    Song was AMAZING!!! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer for my bridal or wedding pictures. All of them turned out beautiful! She is so creative when coming up with shots to take. She made an entire day of schedule for us and she stuck to it as best as she could. She got along with our videographers as well! Song knew exactly what she wanted and she came very prepared. I appreciated everything she did for us that day and I am in LOVE with our pictures!

    Truly Amazing

    Song was a dream to work with. From her bubbly personality to extremely quick responses to email (and I mean with in 15 minutes fast) to her little surprises in the mail to the props she brings for photos, she was wonderful. Our wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous. I don't think she stopped taking photos the entire day! I feel so blessed to have had our day captured the way Song did!!

    Amazing Experience & Pictures

    Song was absolutely amazing to work with. She constantly checked in on us while we were in the process of rescheduling our wedding due to COVID-19. We felt she truly cared about our wedding day and wanted to make it as special as possible. It rained off and on during but she figured it all out making sure we got all the shots we wanted and more. Our pictures turned out beautiful and if we lived in the Charlotte area we would be using her as our photographer for everything. We highly recommend using her!

    Perfect Day

    Song is so sweet and truly wants your day to be special. She goes out of her way to make sure that you will have beautiful pictures that will last a lifetime. She was fast with a preview and even surprised us with a cute video. I would definitely recommend Blooming Dreams to anyone looking for a photographer who is easy to work with and a great deal.

    Absolutely amazing!!!

    So Mrs. Song Johns was our wedding photographer and I’m telling you, she was hands down the best of the best of the BEST! She worked so hard the entire time and she is beyond talented and has so many amazing ideas for pictures! She showed up at like 8:00am and did not leave until late that night and was so much fun to work with! She literally felt like family at the end of the night. I will always be OBSESSED with our pictures! Literally everything that I wanted! I wouldn’t ever recommend anyone else but her! She’s truly amazing and the sweetest woman I have ever met and we truly love her to pieces! ❤️

    Incredible, Fun Photographer

    From the first time my husband and I spoke to Song, we knew that she was the wedding photographer we wanted. She was open to hearing what we wanted her to capture and had plenty of great suggestions of her own, plus she had previously shot at our venue, so hiring her was a no brainer. Since we lived across the country from our venue, we did not meet Song in person until the actual day of our wedding, but she was just as sweet in person as she had been on the phone.

    Her fun personality made everyone feel relaxed and she was able to truly capture how much fun everyone was having during our wedding. One thing that we love about our wedding photos is that not only are they gorgeous, but everyone looks genuinely happy. You can tell how much fun everyone was having, Song captured each moment perfectly. Song is an outstanding photographer and her eye for fun, creative shots is unbelievable. Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer, but she is kind and it's truly evident that she loves what she does. I almost wish we could have another wedding just so we could hire her again!

    Wedding Photos of our Dreams!

    We used Blooming Dreams Photos for both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. Song was AMAZING to work with! She really captured our personalities in the shots and had so many creative ideas. When looking through our wedding photos we kept saying how we had no idea she was even around to capture a specific moment, look, or embrace and those are the pictures we cherish most! Aside from the pictures she created the most beautiful highlight reel of our special day saving us a fortune on a videographer. Song brought a second photographer along to capture the guys getting ready and that photographer was very professional and equally great to work with- great choice, Song! I'll definitely be using Blooming Dreams for my future photographer needs! Thank you so much for the beautiful life long memories!

    Quality & Professionalism

    From the first moment we met Song, we were confident in her ability has a photographer, but even more - she seemed like a friend! She was extremely reliable in communications and flexible with all meetings/sessions. Song went above and beyond to find locations for Bridal Portraits (which were FABULOUS)...and for our wedding...all I can say is wow. She is truly passionate about her profession and we are so thrilled with our photographs! We will definitely be using her for our future photo sessions!

    Song was phenomenal! Shows she enjoys her work!

    Our wedding was in May 2019. Song initially did our engagement photos and we had such a great experience with her that we knew we needed her to be there at our wedding. Song is so professional and it really showed that she cared about her work and wanted to make our day as magical as it was. She went above and beyond and made us feel really comfortable. My wife and I knew nothing about the process for taking pictures but she guided us through it all. Song thank you so so so so much! You really made our day special and I will recommend you any chance I get. With much love, Janet and Moises!

    Song is amazing!

    We haven't yet had our wedding but the biggest thing I was worried about was finding a photographer that I could click with that does amazing work that I could afford. And Blooming Dreams is just that! Song is amazing and has made me feel so at ease. With less than 90 days until our wedding, she sent us a sweet welcome package with tips and tricks for the big day, and she sent over a time line (which is completely flexible). It just feels so good to know what I am working with someone who is so good at what they do and so kind!

    Professional, dedicated, and fun!

    Song with Blooming Dreams Photo did such an amazing job photographing our wedding. She ran around all night capturing our wedding in such a fun and beautiful way. She truly went above and beyond to get unique and creative pictures throughout the entire night. While the posed pictures were beautiful, she really captured so many amazing candid moments. Many times I didn't see her, but she still managed to capture such important moments that I will be able to look back on for a life time. I strongly recommend her as a wedding photographer. She was so enthusiastic, kind, and fun to have around!

    Engagement & Wedding Photographer

    WOW! Song continues to surprise me with her work and creativity. I found her off of Thumbtack and her pictures were so fun, I took a leap of faith based on her amazing reviews and I’m glad I did. She is reasonably priced and worth every penny. Our engagement session was so relaxed and super fun! She compiles short videos of the shoot that are so memorable and something I’ll keep forever. Our wedding photos were breath taking and adorable. She gave us fun keepstakes such as a box with our photo on it, USBs with our pictures printed on them and a cute little accordion photo album. She goes up and beyond for every photo she takes. Her responses are fast and I cannot recommend her enough! We will be sure to use Blooming Dreams for any future photography sessions. BOOK HER BEFORE ITS TOO LATE! You will not regret it!

    Song is AMAZING!! She photographed my wedding day and made the day even more special! In addition to the beautiful pictures, she went above and beyond to make the photo shoot fun and memorable. She also captured some video footage of family and the wedding party sharing how they felt that day, we will cherish these memories forever. It is obvious that Song loves what she does and her enthusiasm is contageous. She was always willing to do whatever it took to get the best angle possible. Song is very creative and captured every moment in a unique way. She works well with groups and knows how to command the crowd. I highly recommend Song as a photographer!

    I'm so glad we chose Song Johns with Blooming Dreams photography as our wedding photographer!! We wanted a photographer who could capture and create beautiful, magical photos and keep a sense of humor with the photos she took as well. Song definitely hecked all those boxes, and she was great with our dog, who was there for our wedding ceremony and our engagement photo shoot. The pictures themselves have such a lush, painterly color to them that makes me want to look at them forever, and Song's overall thoughtful nature (for example, this year we were surprised with a beautiful Christmas ornament from our engagement shoot), fast response time, and flexibility made her wonderful to work with! I would absolutely recommend her for any photography work.

    We had our engagement photos done with Song and we couldn't be more pleased with our pictures and experience! I can't say enough great things about her. She was willing to work with us for a great location and traveled with us to Lake Lure, NC. She even treaded through a creek with us to get the best pictures. She was very prompt getting sneak peeks to us and getting all of our engagement pictures to us within a week and we also got a nice photo book to go with it. We can't wait to see what she has in store for our wedding!
