We absolutely loved having Jonathan with McCardell Photography shoot both our engagement photos as well as our entire wedding and reception. As our reception was scheduled to be celebrated in a converted barn, we knew we needed someone very experienced with lighting and various camera angles to capture the essence of the environment. We found an experienced, hands on photographer who delivered for every shot! My husband and I knew that gorgeous pictures were of the utmost importance to our wedding experience so we could revel in the big day for years to come. Not only did Jonathan deliver beautiful pictures, but he was able to capture the moment by showing our guests’ true personalities while using his uncanny, vision for each shot. We have already recommended this great husband and wife duo to our friends, and we hope everyone takes the opportunity to use them for their next big event!


Jonathan and Renee were an absolute photography dream team for my May 27th wedding! They have such a creative way of capturing the perfect lighting and angles in every picture. My bridal party and family commented that the McCardells are personable, professional and fun to be around! I got my pictures back within two weeks of my wedding and I love every single memory that was captured! Every time I contacted the McCardells during the planning process, they responded very promptly and made me feel that I had hired the best photographers around. The McCardells make you feel like you are family. I was honored that they were such a big part of the happiest day of my life!

Look no further than the dynamic duo at McCardell photography. Ultimately you hope for the best and photos are so important to capture the moments of your wedding day, and there’s no reason to not trust Jonathan and Renee to perform. They’re prompt, responsive, creative, and flexible. We had a very unique cadence to our reception, and they captured all of it beautifully. We also had them come for our welcome dinner and “Sunday Funday” and those pictures are spectacular as well. Look no further.

My husband and I cannot say enough about McCardell Photography. Hiring a good photographer was a priority for us, and Jonathan and Renee McCardell exceeded all of our expectations. We had the chance to work with both as Jonathan shot our engagement photos, and Renee shot our wedding. Both are professional, fun, and personable. I felt so at ease from the first “click” of the camera. Most importantly, the McCardells were able to capture the emotions of that day in a way which defies categorization. We opted not to have a videographer, and that was something we initially regreted. However, after seeing the photos captured of our day, we realized we didn’t even need it. The progression of the photographs told the stories, and showed the emotions, of that day in a more profound way than any video could. We love the McCardell’s and HIGHLY recommend them. We’ll be using them again in the future!!

My husband and I decided to get married when we found out we would be welcoming our daughter into the world- unfortunately that left us with 3 months to wedding plan! Luckily for us Jonathan and Renee had an open date for the day we wanted to get married. Renee had a wedding that day so we worked with Jonathan for the majority of our experience- we did our engagement photos in downtown Greensboro and he did a wonderful job of getting us to relax and laugh- my family and friends raved over he was able to really capture “us” in the photos. The day of the wedding was a complete fiasco- the weather had been sunny with a high of 75 until the day leading up to the rehearsal dinner when a tropical storm decided to make its way through the coast. The day of the wedding was drizzling and in the 50s- my wedding was an outside wedding but Jonathan and his assistant photographer were great at working with the weather. We worked around it to get the shots we needed. My father had surprise fireworks at the wedding which made for amazing photos and Jonathan never miss an opportunity for a photograph but he was never obtuse- you can tell he is a true professional. When I received my final wedding images I was completely amazed that Renee and Jonathan had captured and edited the photos so that someone looking at the photos would have never known how miserable the weather was- just what an amazing time it was with friends and family. I recommend them as wedding photographers to anyone looking for quality photos and a reliable professional friendly photographer!
