I don't normally write reviews but just had to! Gissendanner Photography has been part of my life since high senior portraits. My family used them for years when they had their studio in west Ashley. My parents home is adorned with beautiful canvas framed portraits taken of us as we grew up. After moving back to Charleston after several years I was looking for intimate special portraits for my wonderful husband. At first panic set in when I saw that my favorite photographer had closed the studio. Needless to say I was delighted to find him well and still practicing his wonderful art. As I now wrap this beautiful album he has created for me I'm anxiously waiting for my husband to open it! I was spoiled growing up because my parents insisted on quality photography. When I moved away I tried some of the new so called photographers that seem to be everywhere. I'm no expert but I can always tell Gissendanner's portraits from others. I highly recommend them for whatever you want photographed. They are always very professional and easy going. With there online ordering system I was able to view the proofs at my computer the next day.

I wanted to have the perfect wedding gift for my soon to be husband and I found it! I wanted to do boudior photography, but was concerned about quality along with feeling comfortable in front of the camera. My expectations were surpassed completely!
Kim Gissendanner made me feel completely comfortable and was able to offer some sample work. He was also extremely flexible with his time, easy to talk with, and always available for questions. Kim offered prompt responses to all questions and concerns I had and was able to off exquisite photography that I know I will enjoy for years to come! I would recommend Gissendanner Photography to anyone who wants a personable and flexible photographer!

We were hoping to find a photographer that could create magic for us! We searched the internet for a photographer that could do just that. When we came across Gissendanner Photography, we were amazed. We called Gissandanner Photography and got unbelievable customer service from Kim Gissendanner. He answered all of our dozens of questions. On our wedding day Kim delivered exactly what we were hoping for. He was professional, fun, relaxing, and creative. Most of all Kim was very easy to work with. We never felt uncomfortable posing for him. Even our most shy guests were at ease with Kim taking their pictures. Numerous guests commented about how fantastic Kim was and how he was right there in the middle of everything snapping the most important memories but never in the way. After the wedding, we have received several emails from friends asking for contact information for our photographer. Our guests loved Kim too! We got to view our pictures right after we returned from our honeymoon. The pictures are amazing, we were actually blown away by the quality of the photos. Kim did so much more than we ever expected! We highly recommend Gissendanner Photography to capture your special day. Thanks again Kim! You are the best!

Gissendanner Photography did my maternity pictures and they turned out absolutely amazing! Mr. Gissendanner is very personable and made us feel very comfortable. He spent over two hours photographing my husband and I. We were very pleased that several different backgrounds were used. It provided us with a wide variety of wonderful photos to choose from. I was so eager to view our photographs after the session and could not believe that we were able to see them so quickly. All of our photos were pass word protected and posted on-line three days after our session. We have thoroughly enjoyed them being on-line because it has been so convenient for family and friends to view them. We also could not believe how quickly we received our photographs. I placed the order on a Thursday and received them the following Monday. I highly recommend using Gissendanner Photography and we look forward to them working with our family in the near future.

We used this photographer for our engagement pictures. We got to do them where we wanted and for a great price! We got over 300 pictures in an hour! We got exactly what we wanted! We would use him for our wedding but we are getting married out of town!

My husband and I were married in May of 2009 and chose this photographer over many others. I was so impressed with the albums I viewed of previous brides and the amazing "candid" shots he took. He definitely lived up to our high expectations. We have the most beautiful pictures, he did not miss a SINGLE moment of our wedding. We are SO pleased and would highly recommend this company.
On a personal level, Kim is amazing to work with. Something spilled on a page of my album, and free of charge, I was able to get the pages fixed within a couple weeks!

We used Gissendanner Photography for our 2004 wedding. We researched many other photographers and went with Gissendanner. We were very pleased with our entire experience. Our engagement pictures and bridal portraits turned out beautiful! We have such wonderful memories from our wedding day with beautiful photos. Kim was wonderful to work with and made everyone feel at ease. After losing some of our family members since our wedding, the pictures are truly a blessing to us. Recently, Kim even met with us again to order more pictures. I would highly recommend Gissendanner Photography.

Gissendanner did my wedding, bridal portriats and rehearsal dinner beautifully! It is not just photos of boring poses, it's like art, he puts the album together like telling a story and the album itself was very high quality. I still have it on my entry way table after 6 years and share with everyone. People always ask who did my photography! It is THE best thing about my wedding, besides my wonderful husband. Pricing & turn around time were well worth it! Not something you should skimp on for your wedding! Gissendanner also comes and does our family Christmas photos every year. He is great with the children!

We just received our wedding album from our wedding that was photographed by Gissendanner Studio. The results are awesome! Comparing it to friend's wedding albums its obvious that we picked the right photographer. Attention to detail and the design of the album are superb. The choice of materials that they use to put these together is obviously very high quality. The selection process went smooth with everything being put online for me to see. I was very involved with the editing process and I am extremely pleased with the results. It took about 6 weeks to complete the process, I was kinda slow in picking the shots. The only overwhelming part was the selection process because there were so many great shots, over 1500 to chose from. I suggest them if you want creative photography at prices that are very reasonable for a studio like them. I get all happy tears when every I open my wedding album.

We have used Gissendanner for over 7 years with great results each time doing family portraits and a wedding. It's true it takes a little longer to receive the finished product because of the custom nature, but then I would expect that from a custom photographer. They take care of minute details like removing wrinkles and acne blemishes on my kids. The work has always been creative and we've always been pleasantly suprised when we've come in to look at proofs. Our result with albums and framed portraits has always been wonderful. Now they are making housecalls which makes getting the family together for a portrait much easier. When friends come to my home they are envious of the beautiful canvas portraits I have that have come from them. In my book they are top notch!

I have been a customer since 2007 and have spent several thousands of dollars on prints, framed portraits, and framed canvas pieces. However, I am severing my relationship with Gissendanner because the wait time for receiving orders is absolutely unfathomable. We had portraits made of our newborn in February 2009 and STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED the finished product. Further, they have not attempted to contact us to keep us informed of what's taking so long or when to expect delivery of our order, and when I call to ask, no one answers the phone. Of course, you are required to pay up front, so I have $1,000+ invested in a product that I do not have, eight months after ordering it. This has been our experience every time (last year it took six months to get two 8x10 prints). I understand that custom portrait studios take time to do quality work, but this is completely ridiculous and inexcusable.

Pros: Works with you to get shots you want

Cons: Payment up front, product not delivered for MONTHS

We were married in November 2006 and still have nothing to show for it! Poor customer service, lots of excuses, no follow-through, etc. Very unsatisfied. Would not recommend this company unless you don't care to spend lots of money and not get pictures in return.

We've used Gissendanner Photography for two daughter's weddings and the result were spectacular. The quality of the photography is excellent and their attention to detail is unmatched. Our family has used their studio for several years and we've always gotten more than we expected. I find it hard to believe that jmm2474 below experienced a problem below. Maybe they expected one hour photo turn-around from a high quality studio like theirs? I know Kim personally and he is a pleasure to deal with and anytime we've had a problem he's been more than happy to remedy the situation. They do a lot more design to their wedding albums. They even removed unwanted things and made me look beautiful! We hope that they'll be around for many years to photograph the grands.

I was married in June 07' and after many attempts to get my wedding album, as of today April 24th 2008 I have yet to receive any pictures from the studio. Multiple excuses have been given as to why we have not received our albums. Please use caution when working with Gissendanner Photography
