To say we love our photos from Two Ring Studios is an understatement. We were blown away and so very, very happy. My new husband and I are both in TV news, so we are visual people. We wanted to find a photographer who captured not only our family and friends, but the venue and the atmosphere of the night as well. We were married at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. I've seen hundreds of photographs over the years of the estate, but Galen managed to find new angles, and not only made the whole place seem brand new again, but also unique to us, to our night. The other striking thing about Galen was his serene presence. When we were searching, it's not something that ever crossed our minds. But as a new bride, let me tell you - the day of the wedding, to have such a calm, thoughtful photographer in the middle of inevitable stress - you cannot buy that. It's a gift, and Galen has it. He's responsible for the photos being the most effortless part of the whole affair, even though they're one of the most important. Finally, our pictures were wonderful because they tell a story. Every time I look at each one, I see something new - a face I didn't notice before, a detail of the venue, or an emotion I never saw the day of, but am able to now. Two Ring Studios made our wedding into a story, filled with hundreds of perfect, beautiful memories we will look at for years to come.
Galen at Two Ring Studio was very professional and knowledgeable about photography. I am very observant and notice those things. He was dressed very nicely for our big day, which I really appreciated. It was extremely hot and I am sure he was miserable in his long sleeves button up, but he never expressed any discontent. He was just focused on getting good shots. The pictures we received were awesome and unique! One thing my husband and I really liked about Galen was his confidence! He wasn't over the top, he was just confident in his work and gave wonderful direction. Thank you for being a part of our big day and making it even more special.
Galen was amazing! He was patient and kind. He was easy to communicate with. We loved our experience and can't wait to see the pictures. Thank you so much for being our storyteller for our day!
I just cannot say enough about Galen and Two Ring Studios. Planning a destination wedding from Miami was exciting, but came with many extra challenges since we didn't know anyone and weren't familiar at all with the industry in Asheville. After researching like crazy and going through the work of many, many photographers, we chose Two Rings. I was never too nervous because after meeting with Galen one time and looking through his work, I just couldn't imagine him letting us down. But what I did not know was that he would absolutely blow our minds and impress us beyond words with his photos. It has become comical at this point because the response from every single person who sees our shots is of disbelief. They look out of a magazine, unreal, and completely photoshopped with unrealistic "dreamlike" backgrounds. I knew our pictures would be amazing in my eyes, but I never thought others would be this shocked and impressed.
Prior to the big day, we discussed options with him and he recommended the most amazing spots for our pictures. He listened to our ideas, even those that were a little crazy sounding on such tight timing, and made every single request happen....and smoothly!! On the day of the wedding, he was so relaxed and calm. He was able to keep us on track. Our wedding party was quite large, as well as our families. Everyone involved commented on how much they enjoyed his company and how great he was. We all had the most perfect experience with Galen on our wedding day, and we now have beyond perfect pictures to cherish for the rest of our lives. He's professional, creative, caring, honest, easy to communicate with, and a true artist! I would love to discuss more or send you more pictures or answer any questions you may have.

Galen did a wonderful job with our wedding. When we met during our site visit, he was very interested in getting to know us as a couple. He had offered to do an engagement shoot at the Biltmore, but it was pouring rain. That didn't stop him, and he offered to go out in the rain with us and took some great shots of us. At the wedding, he was very professional. He captured all of the moments we'd asked for without being intrusive and also those moments that we hadn't even thought of prior to the day. He didn't try to keep us away from the party shooting pictures for too long. He was also very accommodating to other guests who asked him to take pictures of us with their own cameras. We received our final pictures from the wedding in a appropriate amount of time. We are thrilled with the results! Looking at them takes us back to the day, and we really enjoy looking back at the wonderful shots of us and our guests.
Galen & Ian were amazing!! They were both so nice and were very efficient in taking the photos! They gave great direction without making you feel like you were in a cheesy photo session. Really great guys and from what I've seen so far they take pretty amazing photos!!
Galen was absolutely phenomenal! I have not seen our wedding photos just yet, but he did our engagement photos as well, and they are spectacular. My husband and I are not the most photogenic couple and he made us feel comfortable and took wonderful photos of us. Galen is very laid back and easy going and you can tell he loves what he does. I can get worked up easily and his calm attitude was welcome during the hectic planning and day of. Take time to review his photos, they are amazing!!! I am so pleased that I had two ring studios take our wedding and engagement photos. Additionally, I chose a photo from our engagement shoot to use on my invitations and the invitation website was quite finicky; I contacted Galen and he was very helpful with this as well. Definitely go with Two Ring Studios!!
I cannot say enough good things about Galen McGee. I was pretty laid back when choosing most of my vendors, except the photographer. Being a photographer and designer, I knew what I wanted and I had very high expectations. Galen did not disappoint. The difference between a person with a fancy camera and a great photographer is artfulness. That's what Galen has, the ability to see things others can't, and to capture a split second moment perfectly. You might expect a "know-it-all" attitude when working with a person this talented, but that couldn't be any farther from the truth with Galen. He was incredibly professional and polite, he listened to our ideas and made them better than we could have imagined. He also offered his own ideas that turned out beautifully. I cannot wait to see all of the photos from the wedding. The ones we have seen so far always get the same reaction from anybody who sees them, "This looks like something straight out of a magazine!" It's true. Galen took a beautiful, special day and managed to make it even more beautiful. You can't put a price on somebody with an eye like Galen's. I would recommend him 100 times over. Thank you so much, Galen. You are an incredibly talented person.
We used Two Ring Studios to photograph our wedding ceremony and reception. We were lucky enough to get both Derek and Galen as our photographers that day. They were both wonderful! They worked with us on our schedule and were kind and professional. They made sure to get all the pictures we requested and more! The details of their photography is outstanding! Plus, most of the time we didn't even notice they were there! The shots were great - candid and posed! I would recommend them to anyone! Everyone has raved about the gorgeous pictures!
