KIND WORDS FROM OUR PAST COUPLES
Chloe & Blake
Where to begin... Justin and Amanda make an amazing team! Justin is so talented; he makes sure to capture moments you may otherwise forget from your special day. Each and every photo taken is beautiful in every last detail. I am especially grateful for how Justin captures the typical 'family photos' but captures them in a way that is unique to your wedding. Justin and Amanda also very easy to get along with; they create a comfortable environment for you and your spouse allowing him to photograph more genuine moments between you two. We truly love every single photo Happy Bloom took for us on our wedding day. There is no need to look into any other photographers! The Happy Bloom is hands down the best choice!

siria & lawson
Justin and Amanda are wonderful people to work with. From the moment we met them during our engagement session, we knew they were the perfect fit to capture every moment, every look that lead to our wedding. We took our engagement pictures a year before the wedding, but Justin and Amanda were there all the time answering any question I had. The day of the wedding, Justin and Amanda took the most amazing pictures capturing Lawson and I in love, and were able to capture our crazy families and friend’s personalities with their shots. We loved having them being part of our special day and will recommend them to anyone for their special day.
julie & adam
You all have done it again!! What an honor it was to have you all there and capture our special day!! Thank you so much for everything!! All of the pictures are stunning!!! Thank you so so much!!! - I am in awe!!!
evin & ryan
I will start this off by saying that all of my Grandmother's girlfriends refer to my wedding as the celeb wedding all because of the photos they saw done by The Happy Bloom.
Picking a wedding photographer was one of the hardest decisions for me to make out of them all. There is so much pressure put on picking the team who will capture the most important day of your life the exact way you want it to be captured and have no chance at a re-do. I loved their work from the get go but after our engagement session in 97 degree heat with 93% humidity, I thought to myself- no one can make that look good. When we got the photo's back I was OVER THE MOON with how crisp and how beautiful they were. Justin and Amanda are such professionals and I could not have been happier with the way they were able to capture those moments that made our wedding day so special and signature to us. Trust me brides- these two are the real deal!
taylor & anthony
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Not only did the wedding photos come out more beautiful than I could have imagined but working with Justin and Amanda was an absolute blast. Our bridal party couldn't stop talking about how much fun and comfortable they were to work with on the day of the wedding -- and the pictures really are proof of that; everyone was so happy! We spent weeks looking for the best photographer because it's one of the most important vendors you'll select for your wedding, so if you're spending hours looking yourself you can stop here. The Happy Bloom is the best!
jenny & evan
Justin & Amanda are a dynamic duo! As soon as we saw their website, we fell in love with their photography style. We loved their light, bright and airy aesthetic and the crispness of their film photographs. I'm a pretty awkward human being so I was dreading being in front of a camera for long periods of time and especially on my own, which is expected when you're a bride, but Justin pumped up my ego and made me feel super comfortable and confident! All of the bridal party commented on loving working with them and how fun the process was! They are a joy to be around!
We had spied a picture on Instagram at our ceremony location that we adored and we sent the picture to Happy Bloom. We told them that we'd love pictures here if we could and they went above and beyond to find that location for us and get us access to it. And I'm glad because some of those pictures are our absolute favorite!! We also appreciated you always being on time, actually always early, and being happy and positive and calm during the day. You were always very professional and that was refreshing!
Sid & nick
My husband and I could not be more grateful or pleased for the absolutely fantastic work produced by Justin and Amanda. The entire experience was lovely, and we felt like they were part of the group the whole weekend while they captured our Big Day. You can't get brighter or lighter than Happy Bloom!
jen & paul
We are literally speechless - these photos are absolutely incredible and so capture all aspects of the day, and the utter joy we were feeling. Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over. You are truly unbelievable.
Annie & ryan
These are just beyond incredible - Ryan & I could not be happier by how the photos turned out and are just over the moon excited to share with our friends and family. Thank you for capturing all the details of our special day and for helping everyone to relax and have FUN! We will cherish these forever and just could not be more grateful.
Chrystal & Aaron
They are so good, Justin!!!! You guys are amazing and it was a blast having you at our wedding. It was most definitely a day I will never forget....lightening and all. haha Thank you, thank you, thank you. Wonderful team to work with on your wedding day. And the pictures - amazing! The Happy Bloom captured my fairytale day so perfectly. I highly recommend this vendor!!!
EMILY & KYLE
The Happy Bloom team was an absolute joy to work with! Justin and Amanda take amazing photos but are also just a great team. From our engagement session to the day-of, they were professional, timely, and responsive. On our wedding day, they stuck to the timeline and made everyone comfortable. Everyone loved working with them, and I look forward to having gorgeous wedding photos to remember my wedding. Thanks, Justin and Amanda!
CATHERINE & BRYAN
Justin and Amanda could not be kinder, more professional, responsive, and all around amazing people. These attributes alone are noteworthy; however, they are also incredibly talented photographers! I feel like we hit the wedding photographer jackpot! From the moment we spoke to Justin on the phone, we knew we had found our wedding photographer! Our engagement session in downtown Charleston (yes they travel from Savannah!) was so much fun, even for my fiance who isn’t the most comfortable being photographed. Justin was able to coax more than a few smiles out of him! Both Justin and Amanda have a way of making you feel like a friend, putting you at ease and making you comfortable. Once the big day arrived, we were actually able to enjoy it because we knew that Justin and Amanda had it covered. Their photos are bright and enchanting. They capture those small moments of pure joy and happiness in such an effortless way.
Piper & trey
Justin & Amanda are incredibly talented and make a fantastic team. They are extremely passionate about all things bridal/wedding and it shows. As some one who is pretty unnatural in front of a camera, Justin was able to make me laugh and feel completely comfortable. Our wedding pictures are breathtaking and capture so many emotions from the day. I love and highly recommend The Happy Bloom!!
LAUREN & MARK
When starting to plan our wedding, my husband and I immediately decided that we wanted one of the bigger investments to be in the photography. We could not be happier with the photos from both our engagement session and our wedding day. They were on top of everything from day one..from helping us choose which package best fit our needs, getting to know us while taking the most beautiful engagement pictures, to capturing our wedding day perfectly. They are both so easy to talk to, it felt like we had known them for years.. Such an important factor when it comes to including someone in one of the most important days of your lives! We will value these photos for a lifetime and cannot thank Justin and Amanda enough for helping us have these memories to look back at. We highly recommend The Happy Bloom for your big day!
avery & peter
Oh my goodness! These pictures are out of this world! They are amazing, light, and beautiful in every way. Thank you for capturing each moment and helping Peter and I relive our favorite day. So thankful for the amazing work you guys have done! It was so great to work with you both.
AMANDA & DEAN
WOW! Justin and Amanda were absolutely wonderful and I am so grateful for them and their talent. From the first time Dean and I met Justin, we knew that we had chosen the right photographer for our special day. And boy were we right. The timeline ran so smooth and I never once felt rushed to get pictures done. They were so helpful and easy to work with. The pictures were back in a timely manner and man did they make me feel like the most beautiful bride ever!! Pictures were high on my priority list when selecting vendors and The Happy Bloom exceeded my expectations!!
Jill & ryan
I had such a great experience with Justin and Amanda. Very professional and prompt at answering all my questions. They are amazing photographers, my wedding photos were breathtaking!
Kate & dustin
All of the previous glowing reviews are completely true- Justin and Amanda are THE BEST! Choosing The Happy Bloom was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I was a destination bride and all of our communication was over email and Justin could not be warmer or more helpful. We felt very overwhelmed and out of our element, but they absolutely put us at ease. They instantly make you feel comfortable by just be conversational and encouraging and that calmed both me and my fiance's nerves. Everyone feels awkward in front of the camera, but you can trust that they will get amazing shots. Honestly, you basically just have to show up and they will make you look beautiful! Their work speaks for itself- seriously, it's editorial/magazine quality work. We haven't stopped looking at our pictures since we got them last week. They captured the happiness and magic of the day and made us look good! I can't recommend The Happy Bloom enough!
ellie & curtis
Impeccable! Justin and Amanda will make your day fun and enjoyable, all while capturing the greatest moments. We are thrilled to have worked with a wonderful duo. We cannot thank them enough for the BEST photographs you will ever receive for your wedding day. 100% happy bride. Thank you two!!
Maddie & jackson
Justin was so amazing to work with for my intimate wedding! He made us feel so comfortable and it was truly like hanging out with a friend. The photos turned out amazing. We couldn’t be happier with The Happy Bloom!
Brooke & tim
Justin and Amanda are an absolutely amazing and professional photography duo! I fell in love with their light and airy style and attention to details, immediately, when I was searching for the most perfect wedding photographer for our wedding. Not only is their style and attention to details above par, they have amazing personalities and are definitely two people you will enjoy having around you on your wedding day! During our engagement photo session and on our wedding day, Justin made my husband and I feel so comfortable as we both are not ones to love being in front of a camera. He helped us laugh and even helped wipe sweat off my husband because it was SO hot! Haha. Justin and Amanda were also very welcoming of the fact that we wanted our pup in as many photos as we could and that meant a lot to me and my husband. We are so thankful and grateful to have had Justin and Amanda a part of our wedding day! 100% you need to book The Happy Bloom as your wedding photographers - you will not be disappointed!
whitney & kevin
Justin and Amanda were absolutely incredible! They went above and beyond to capture every single one of our special moments. It was extremely helpful how organized they were to make sure we didn’t miss a single detail. The photos could not have turned out better. I’ve recommended them to anyone I know getting married!!
