The hype is real y’all! The Happy Bloom is the real deal and the best photography team in the game! I originally chose Justin and Amanda to be my photographers for my wedding based on their beautiful film photos and from the high recommendation from my wedding planner. After talking with Justin on the phone, I knew it was the perfect fit. Justin is hilarious and makes taking photos so fun. Justin and Amanda make you feel so comfortable, are so fun and easy to work with and they are also incredibly professional at the same time. We did both our engagement session and wedding photos with them and they are hands down the most AMAZING pictures I have ever seen. The Happy Bloom is incredibly talented and choosing them to be your wedding/engagement photographers will be the best decision you make! I can’t recommend The Happy Bloom highly enough!!!


Ashley & alexander

Wow. Justin and Amanda are truly incredible to work with! Justin is a true director of the day. Making sure everyone is where they need to be, making sure things happen on time, all while capturing the intimate moments of the day. If you are looking for a whimsical, dreamy look for your photos… Look no further. Each shot captured was a genuine moment in time. Nothing felt posed or stale. Their personalities are so fun, we seriously felt like they were family and a part of the bridal party! We would choose The Happy Bloom over and over and over again. We can’t wait to hire them again one day! We will cherish our album forever. Thank you both for making everything as easy as possible… in a pandemic!!! They deserve all the stars!! xoxo

We loved working with The Happy Bloom for our engagement and wedding photos. I wanted to be Justin’s BFF from his very first email to my initial inquiry and spent the next 14 months asking him literally any and everything to prep for our big day. He was super patient with me throughout the process and was even better to work with in person! My husband and I are super awkward in photos (what do I do with my hands?!) but Justin put us both at ease and coached us through the entire process. On our wedding weekend Justin took the time to get to know our family and friends – all of our guests loved him which resulted in some really fun photos of the day! I also loved that Justin and Amanda were such an awesome team – they were able to communicate what needed to be done without even speaking which made the sometime painful process of bridal party, family photos, etc. such a breeze. On top of all of that, their photos are truly breathtaking. I wanted our wedding day captured in a beautiful, natural and timeless way and am so obsessed with how they turned out! I Thank you both for everything you did to capture our wedding day so perfectly!

Justin and Amanda were an absolute dream to work with for our destination wedding weekend. Right from the start, Justin took time to get to know our families and close friends and he had an ease about him – like he was one of our guests. He gave clear direction to our bridal party when necessary but was never pushy to get specific shots. He kept both my husband and I relaxed and most importantly – let us enjoy being present with each other on our big day. Receiving our pro photos in a few months will be icing on the cake but we already know we will love them since he did such a great job finding interesting backgrounds and capturing the special little details of our big day. I would recommend working with The Happy Bloom without hesitation!


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!


kristen & shane

We can’t express how happy we are with Happy Bloom! Justin and Amanda are a dream team, right from the start. They are quick to respond and so helpful with guiding you throughout the process. They made the wedding day so special, and captured everything and more. Having Justin and Amanda by our side made all the difference. They were so calming and enjoyable to be around, and really set the tone for a fantastic experience. I knew I would be happy with the outcome, but words can’t even describe how amazing the photos turned out!!! It surpassed every expectation. The way the capture the essence of the day is truly magical – Justin is such a talent. They are the best photos I have ever seen, and I have no idea how I’ll choose which ones to frame! We were blown away. If you’re thinking about booking with Happy Bloom, do it. Right now! They are so worth it and more! Thank you so much, Justin and Amanda!!!


alex & zach

The Happy Bloom is next level. Justin and Amanda were such pros on the wedding day. They were efficient and quick while still getting every single shot that you could want. The images are breathtaking, and they have far exceeded any expectations I had. If you have the opportunity, let them be a part of your wedding day!


francesca & justin

Look no further, Justin and Amanda are true professionals and are such a joy to be around on your day! They keep the mood light and fun and capture your true essence as a couple. We’re over the moon with our photos, they are breath-taking and capture the scenery, mood and our personalities beautifully. We cannot thank you enough!


Elizabeth & danny

From the moment you meet them it is as if they are family! Simply put, they are the epitome of their name. It’s as if their presence brings out the happy & the natural bloom in every wedding they photograph! If you are looking for the BEST you have DEFINITELY found it!

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.
Thank you!


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!!!



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!



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!!



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.



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!!


skylar & richard

Justin + Amanda, The Happy Bloom masterminds, were the most PERFECT photography team on the planet! From seeing their initial work online, I knew they HAD to be part of our big day. Their light and airy style captures timeless photos that readily depict raw emotions and personalities. Aside from producing insanely gorgeous pictures, they’re fun and they radiate joy! As a result, we felt SO comfortable in front of the camera and were able to focus on each other during our engagement session, and on our wedding and guests at our actual event. Even further, they executed our timeline perfectly, which ensured that we were able to get down to business with formal photos after our wedding, and then easily move on to enjoy our reception. During the reception, they photographed with a fly-on-the-wall approach and they captured some insanely fun shots depicting just how fun our event was! We are SO honored and humbled that we get to say they were OUR wedding photographers! We hope that they will capture other special milestones in the future for us–truly the dream team!


rachel & jason

Justin and Amanda are truly the best in the business! They did our photography for our wedding and engagement pictures. I can say the pictures came out way more beautiful than I even imagined! Everyone at the wedding loved them. They are so fun and make taking pictures easy! Justin walks you through every step to make the pictures flawless! I would rate them higher than 5 stars if I could!! We absolutely adored them!!!!


Julia & matt

My (now) husband and I booked The Happy Bloom for our intimate wedding in Charleston. Justin is AMAZING! Besides being insanely talented, he’s got such great energy and made us so comfortable the entire day. Also—2020 wedding, so of course we had to reschedule. Justin was super flexible and we had no problems re-booking with him. All of our photos were stunning, we could not be any happier. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!


sam & andrew

The Happy Bloom was easily the very best decision we made for our wedding. I can confidently say that there are photographers, and then there are artists. Justin is truly an artist and in a league of his very own. We fell in love (via Instagram) with The Happy Bloom’s soft, romantic, light filled photos, in addition to the way they capture the very special ‘micro moments’ that I feel many photographers overlook. We were a destination couple & we immediately knew we had made the right choice when I showed up to our engagement photos in crutches only able to put weight on one foot, and Justin STILL somehow made me look like a rockstar in our photos. Justin has a unique ability to make you feel like you’re lifelong friends which instantly put me and my husband, friends, and family at ease for photos. Our wedding photos are the most stunning photos I have ever seen (I know we might be slightlyyyy biased) – but they exceeded every expectation we had, and then some. Looking through them is truly like reliving the very best day of our lives- we will be forever grateful to The Happy Bloom for so perfectly capturing our wedding day.

sarah & kyle

We hired Justin from The Happy Bloom for our 2020 wedding that got postponed to 2021. He was so easy to work with when we decided to postpone our date due to Covid. We just got our wedding photos back and we were blown away. He captured our day perfectly. They turned out more beautiful than I ever imagined. I love that he also took photos of little moments with our guests. I didn’t expect that and I will cherish those forever. Not only is Justin a great photographer, but he has the best personality. He kept all of us calm throughout the day and helped make everything run smoothly. He makes you feel comfortable the entire day. I had nothing to worry about with Justin!ell your story online can make all the difference.

Justin from The Happy Bloom is truly the best of the best! His photography style is elegant, bright, and timeless. From documenting our special family moments to all of the laughs on the dance floor, he captured everything so beautifully. All of his pictures are so natural and capture the essence of our wedding day. In addition to his impeccable photography style, Justin is the consummate professional and so easy to work with. I knew we were in good hands with Justin right after our first conversation; he has such a special energy that is truly contagious. He also made everything flow so seamlessly so that we could relax and truly enjoy our big day. Both the bridesmaids and groomsmen raved about him. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!
