Riverland is a great company and Shannon was our photographer and she was completely fantastic! Riverland offers great wedding photo packages that are reasonably priced and they are very flexible and accommodating. We took pictures with Shannon all over the Magnolia Gardens property and she was so wonderful and happy to work with. She was professional, accommodating, and great with all of our guests. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Shannon and Riverland as an overall business. The pictures are beautiful that I am going to be keeping forever.

Riverland Studios is excellent value for money. We were shocked at how quick and painless the photography process was on our wedding day. Jeanne and her assistant were personable and fun to be around. At the reception, we even forgot they were there! Most importantly, they captured all of the photos we were hoping to get and more. We could not be more pleased that we hired Riverland to photograph our wedding!

I loved loved loved every moment of my experience with Riverland Studios. Our photographer was Jeanne Mitchum and she was just excellent. Riverland is an affordable option for photography, but does not lack any quality. Our pictures including engagements, bridals, and the wedding were all so beautiful and captured every moment just as it was; unforgettable! Between the amazing photographers and the quality care from the business owners, my experience with them could not have been better. They also provide a print release and a USB with all of your photos plus ordering of prints through them at a great cost to you. I 100% recommend Riverland Studios!

Riverland Studios was a great choice for our wedding photographer! We had 2 photographers hired for our big day (Priscilla and Lucy) and they were both professional and fun! Priscilla met with me several times to be sure she understood exactly what I wanted and expected. The photos turned out beautiful and I am extremely pleased!!!! I highly recommend Riverland's servics

From the beginning, Riverland Studios was a dream come true. Their services and costs are outlined in incredible detail on their website--which cannot be said at all of most studios--and they offered incredible flexibility beyond block-packages. The photographers' pages and portfolios on their website allowed us to explore the various photography styles available in great depth and while they were all exceptional, Shannon's portfolio stood out in particular. After looking at probably two dozen portfolios before coming across the Riverland Studios crew, the fact that the subjects of Shannon's pictures all appeared comfortable, natural, and happy really stood out to us. Sure enough, she put me completely at ease during my portrait session, for which I had been quite nervous. While there certainly is a posed element to wedding photos, especially the formal group shots, Shannon engaged our wedding party in such a way that everyone really could just be themselves. The expressions and reactions are genuine. There's nothing stiff or awkward about any of them. We are all so happy with the final products, which were delivered to us very soon after the wedding on a flash drive, with files in high resolution for printing and low resolution for posting on social media. I greatly prefer this to just ordering prints because we have more flexibility to decide which prints we want while still having the files for viewing pleasure. Beyond the value and quality of their products, the staff at Riverland couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Mat must have answered several hours worth of questions I had along the way and was always eager to do so; Lucy kept me in the loop on the progress of the editing and proofing; and Shannon has to be one of the kindest individuals I've ever had the pleasure to meet. She's hard-working, organized, compassionate, and sincere. Her passion and enthusiasm for her work is evident in every interaction and working with her was a joy throughout.

Working with Riverland was amazing! Our photographer, Caroline, was such a blast to work with and did an AWESOME job on our photos. She was able to handle all of our silly requests and had a creative touch to add to all of our photos. I would use them over and over again!

I chose Shannon with Riverland Studios as my wedding photographer and was so happy with my choice. She was extremely professional and most of all sweet and wonderful to work with. My family and friends even commented on how great she was. The pictures turned out wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone.

Riverland Studios is the best! We worked with Caroline Howard. She is very professional, worked with our every need, and was very responsive. She made us feel at ease during our photo sessions, engagement and wedding. They were able to capture the joy and fun of the whole event.

After interviewing numerous photographers a friend recommended Riverland Studio’s in Charleston and I’m so glad they did! I checked out their website, spoke with Mat and instantly knew that was it. We decided to go with Marylou based on her experience and photography style. Our first time meeting was for our engagement photos and we knew instantly that we had made the right choice. Marylou takes amazing photographs but her eye for a perfect backdrop is what really impressed me. Every shoot, engagement, bridals, and the wedding were absolutely gorgeous! She was able to capture all the traditional moments that we wanted to remember while still keeping with the overall artistic feel I really loved. Throughout the whole experience we were in constant contact making sure we were always on the same page. We even created a pinterest board which really helped with the must have photos. Riverland Studios handled all the editing and did a fantastic job! They provided me with a sneak peak of each session before all the photos were ready which I really appreciated. Waiting weeks for photos is tough so the sneak peak was a really big hit for my family and me. Mat and the whole team made the experience as painless and enjoyable as possible. I highly recommend Marylou and Riverland Studios!

Riverland Studio is awesome! Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Professional, fun, and easy to work with. Jennings shot our wedding and was a.m.a.z.i.n.g!!! Couldn't have asked for someone to make us feel more comfortable (we only met her the morning of our wedding because we live out of state!!). She pulled us aside quickly to snap a few pictures while the sunset was perfect. She was really fast and organized with the family group shots. She captured the most perfect candid moments that literally brought me to tears after receiving our pictures a few weeks after the wedding. Everyone on the Riverland team is great and I would recommend the studio in a heartbeat!

Finding a fantastic photographer was a must have for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our experience with Riverland Studios. The price and the service were great. Everyone that we were in contact with at the studio was polite and professional. Caroline was our photographer and she's simply fantastic. We were on the same page the entire time which made the process so much easier. She did a great job at capturing our special day, our pictures are beautiful!

Riverland Studio was very professional and played a major role in making our day so special for us. Jeanne was able to capture some moments that will last a lifetime. Jeanne was a delight to work with and knew exactly what we were looking for in our pictures.
We received the photos in a very timely manner as. Great quality and the editing team with very attentive to all of our needs/wishes.

Literally everything about this company is fantastic! Great prices, great photographers, awesome attitudes they are just overall a great studio. I only had one photographer at my wedding, Shannon, and she was great. She has a lot of skill and is really easy to work with she listens well to what the bride/groom, and family wants and makes great compromises. She even gave us a few extra minutes of time and caught our cake cutting, and eating and some dancing. The quality of the photos are really great! I love all of my photos and wish I could have taken more.

We used Shannon from Riverland Studios are our photographer and she did a fantastic job. Both my husband and I are not ones to enjoy having our picture taken, but Shannon made the entire process easy and comfortable.
Post-wedding, the editing was done quickly and beautifully, and the management staff has been more than helpful with any questions we had have.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone in the Charleston area!

We used Caroline from Riverland Studios and she was terrific. We met a few weeks before the wedding and were on the same page as to what we all wanted. She was so easy and fun to work with on the wedding day, we felt natural and had fun with the pictures. We just received a sneak peek of some of the photos and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. Riverland Studios also has great customer service and they were always prompt in answering any questions I had prior to booking them.

Mat, the owner, is very courteous and responsive. They do an awesome job of trying to get to know you and your fiance as a couple during the planning process. Our actual photographer was Shannon, and she was so professional, but also very fun. She kept us very relaxed. Value is exceptional. No extra hidden fees to get your photos like a lot of higher priced studios.
