Thank you for making our day extra special! You and David were such a blessing to us on our wedding day! You are amazing at what you do and all of our guests loved you!

I just wanted to say the biggest thank you for working with us on Saturday. It’s unanimous agreement that you were definitely the best vendor there on our wedding day. Thank you for keeping me calm, capturing one of a kind moments, and being so professional. It was a lovely day, and a lot of that is due to the fantastic experience of working with you and your husband!! We can’t wait to see the photos, and I will absolutely recommend you to any of my friends getting married in the future.

We can not say enough great things about Lauren and David of Red Cardinal Studio! Their work is simply amazing! We worked with Red Cardinal Studios on our engagement photos and wedding photos. Lauren and David were open to meeting us anywhere we liked for our engagement photos. We ended up on the Blue Ridge Parkway and Lauren and David were not afraid to get in the tall grass and bushes for a perfect shot. We spent all day with them and loved every moment. The week leading up to our wedding, we skyped with Lauren and talked about every detail that we wanted to catch on the day of our wedding. She was both excited and professional and we left ready for our wedding day to arrive. The day of our wedding, Lauren captured photos of me and my bridesmaids getting ready and David shot the guys at their place. Throughout the night, Lauren and David were shooting away and never once got in the way with any other vendors or guests. When we received our photos, we were in tears with how beautiful they all came out! We received phone calls from our friends and family saying how beautiful all of photos looked. We would use Red Cardinal Studios over and over again and will have these memories for a life time thanks to them!

Oh my gosh, our photos are STUNNING! We are so thrilled, and I am so incredibly lucky to have had Lauren and David and our wedding. I can’t say thank you enough!!

Red Cardinal did a great job photographing our engagement photos and wedding — we are extremely pleased with the end result!

We hired Lauren for an out-of-state wedding, and she graciously accommodated to our every need — scheduling a Facetime call to connect, introduce herself, and discuss the terms of her services; driving to Richmond for our engagement photo session; and even attending our wedding rehearsal to get a feel for the layout and logistics of the ceremony. She made every attempt to effectively communicate with us from afar and we loved having Red Cardinal Studio be a part of our big day.

Further, the photos Lauren and David (her second-shooter, husband) provided will be cherished for generations to come. She has a style of photographing that is comparable to mainstream Virginia photographers (that charge more!), but has her own style that is more creative than I could have imagined — she took a great shot of the moon on the night of our wedding, I would never have thought of that!

Worth every penny, if not more.

I cannot say enough about how great it is to work with Red Cardinal! They have covered various events for our office over a few years now. They are very responsive, make sure to get all the details of an event and has always stuck to their deadlines. They are nothing but professional and a pleasure to work with!

Nothing but fantastic! We absolutely love Lauren & David. They photographed an event of ours and our attendees beamed for weeks & weeks about how awesome the photos were. They’re not only incredibly talented, super adorable, kind hearted & feel like family the second you meet them, but will also put you at ease with their professional and calm demeanor. Would hire them again in a heartbeat and plan to!
