Kind Words

Renee, Thank you for making our Senior Portrait experience so special. You made us feel so at ease and so comfortable. We were amazed at the true personality that you were able to capture in our pictures. We will always treasure the special memories that you have given us.The Webers, Greenville, SC

Renee's work is truly from the heart. She captured my Ivy's (St. Bernard) personality in so many ways. During the session, Ivy also managed to escape from the yard onto a very busy Greenville street. Renee, without hesitation, put down her cameras and hurdled the fence to save my Ivy. That is a true animal lover. I will always treasure the time spent with Renee as one of my favorite experiences.Cyndie Hunt, Greenville, SC

Hi Renee,I have just 3 words for you . . . OH MY GOSH!!!!! We LOVE them!!! You hit the nail on the head! I thought I was going to have to pick Amy up off of the floor! Fantastic!!! Thank you very very very much!! Jeff & Amy Williams, Charlotte, NC

Hello Renee! I wanted to thank you for the amazing slideshow presentation today. My parents were more than impressed (as was I) with your marvelous photography skills. My dad couldn't stop talking about how amazed he was. My sister is excited about her session too.Thanks again for everything,Alex, Winthrop University Senior

All I can say is WOW WOW WOW WOW! This was my first photoshoot as a young adult and it was such a great experience getting to work with Renee. She really takes the clients wishes into consideration while carefully making sure that the personality of the client and her own personal creativity shine. I just came home from the first viewing of my portraits and choosing only about 5 or 6 to have printed was SO hard because they were all SO INCREDIBLY AMAZING! There are only good things to say about Renee and the work she does!Sarah Leonard, Fine Arts Center, Greenville, SC

I had a fantastic experience working with Renee! I had pictures taken for marketing and professional purposes and I can't say enough about how pleased I am. Renee certainly stood out from the crowd as I was searching for local photographers and what she was able to do lived up to all my expectations. She listened to what I wanted and took it to the next level. Thanks so much Renee!Erin Knight, Clemson, SC

As a dog lover/owner I have many many photos of my dogs; however what a treat to find Renee Carolla! It was wonderful to have someone else taking photos allowing all of us to be together. Renee has a great eye, fresh ideas and an amazing ability to connect with her subjects both human and canine! We were very pleased with the entire process and now have some unique and memorable portraits that we will forever cherish. Melissa Hammonds, Professional Dog Photographer, Houston, Texas

Dear Renee,Just thought you should know: We have had dozens of family portraits done over the years as our kids were growing up. It was always a bit of an ordeal and we considered it a 'job to get done' which we were happy to be finished with for another year. However, when you did our family 'photo shoot' this past Christmas all that changed. We had SO much fun and my three 'kids' who are now young adults actually want to do it again! We have had so many compliments and comments about how refreshing and unique the pictures and settings are, including some rave reviews from a professional graphic artist friend of ours. We all look forward to working with you again. Wish we could pack you up and take you to Canada for the family wedding this summer!! Lisa BlackabySimpsonville, SC

Renee, Arranging with you, the session of my two greatest prizes, daughter Katie and son Tim, ranks as one of my better decisions. When friends and family have walked into my home and seen the three beautifully finished photos on my wall, they stop and say "Wow!" You didn't just capture their image -- you captured their spirit. It's a gift for a lifetime. I'm most grateful. Bob O'LearyGreenville, SC

Hi Renee,The work you did with the boys and our dog, Spaz, was just phenomenal! You have such a gift for detail and attention. Thank you for making everyone feel so comfortable and relaxed during our session. You captured the true essence of our family! The Alonzo Family Greenville, SC

Today, everything is so rushed! For us, having our family portraits taken was something we've wanted to do forever, but have always been too busy! Renee, not only took the time to take the right pictures of us, but also took the time to ensure we were happy with what she was doing. This was not a 'in and out' process. Renee definitely takes pride and joy in what she does and it comes across when dealing with her. If you want quality, choose Renee...AWESOME!Tamara, Eric, Braiden & BreeGreenville, SC

Renee, The pictures you took of my "Urban Dog" Dusty, are AMAZING! You not only captured his beauty, but the full range of his personality; every quirky thing about him--even his howl! He wasn't young, but you found his youth. Each image is so full of LIFE! Working with you was truly an experience. Everything from the session to the slide show. The end result is not just pictures, but artful memories full of spirit and life. Everyone who loves a dog, especially an "Urban Dog", needs to find you. I will be pointing the way!Patrice H.Simpsonville, SC

I absolutely love Renee's work! The photographs she took of my kids brought tears to my eyes. Every time I look at them I get emotional. She has a very unique approach to photography, so if you are looking for something different, hire Renee.Bridget Masotti Greenville, SC

Dear Renee, We wanted some nice photos for our engagement but what you captured on film was beyond anything we could have imagined. The pictures are amazing!! You managed to capture emotions. . . our love and the way we feel about each other.  Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for capturing the complete essence of our relationship. You are truly an artist! We look forward to working with you again soon!Bonnie MuciaBluffton, SC

Renee, I have been showing my daughter's photos to everyone and everyone thinks the pictures are beautiful. The way you go out into the City of Greenville has captured more of her personality than any backdrop or props ever could. Thank you so much for these beautiful pictures of my daughter!Melissa Stetar, Greenville, SC

Hi Renee,I've been meaning to write you ever since our family's website went up to tell you how amazingly good you are. The photos you took are tremendous! It must be a pleasure to do something that you're so good at while creating images for people that I'm certain become some of the most treasured things in their lives. I know that's true for our family. The pictures you took of my sister and her daughter, and my three boys clowning on the beach, are some of the greatest gifts we'll ever get. Katie Keller, Lexington, KY

WOW!!!I can't begin to thank you enough. These pictures actually brought tears to my eyes. I love my boys so much and this captures it all. I can't stop looking at them. Your work is amazing. Thank You for everything!Eilleen Shank, Worcestor, MA
