Best Photographer in Charleston!!!
Photographer for John C.
I hired Adam for my surprise engagement. He was so accommodating and helpful. He set my worries aside and even went to recon Magnolia Plantation, where I proposed, to scout the best and most beautiful spots to capture the moment. The day of he made us feel comfortable and knew exactly how to get the best shots. The pictures he took made us look like we were in a fairy tail. Definitely consider him as an option. He is worth every penny!!!

We hired Adam to do a family photo session while we were on vacation in Charleston. He was excellent. We enjoyed his company and he was so easy to work with. We just got the link to our photos today and they are gorgeous! Even the teenagers of the house like them. He captured exactly what we wanted for a memory of Charleston. Outstanding!
Portrait Photographer for Kelley W.
Adam has taken our family photos several times and we will continue to use him every time. He is great with the kids and getting them to really smile. He makes the photo session fun, while also getting great shots. A bonus about Adam is he volunteers in my school and other schools teaching students about photography.
Photographer for Daniel D.
Adam was an awesome pick for my Real Estate head shots. I found him just by googling photographer in Charleston and he was exactly what I'm looking for. Adam was very professional and took my nervousness away completely. He is super quick in responding as well.

We loved working with Adam! He photographed our family in a session at a couple locations in Wild Dunes. He produced beautiful images for us, both candid and posed, that we will cherish forever.
Professional Headshot for Amanda D.
Adam was excellent! We had a week before our impromptu elopement on a very sunny beach and Adam was available, on time, prepared for the bright sun, and captured our day as I envisioned it. I recommend him all the way!
Professional Photographer for Kaeti M.
Adam captured memories of my daughter's 1 year birthday that we will cherish forever. We could not be more impressed with the outcome of the photos. I highly recommend him!
Family Photographer for Liz J.
Adam was awesome! Family photo shoots can be painful and exhausting, but Adam made it so fun and relaxed. This showed in the photos. Such candid genuine moments captured of our busy family with 2 young boys. Our kids never stop moving and he was able to capture the movement in a way that no other photographer has done before. We will enjoy these photos forever. Thank you, Adam!

Photography for Banner A.
As a professional portrait photographer, I am not only more comfortable BEHIND the lens than in front of it, I am also extremely detailed in my critique of images. I had been putting off getting new headshots for my business for far too long and when the time came to 'get it over with' , I went with the best photographer in Charleston. Adam's body of work speaks for itself and I knew his images would be technically flawless. I was NOT so sure about having the camera turned on me, as the subject of a portrait. Dread is an understatement! I was shocked to find that the experience of being in front of Adam's lens, was literally, a delight! I was amazed at how quickly he put me at ease and how natural the session progressed. I was further impressed by his lightening fast turnaround time and delivery of a set of truly amazing images. I'm not only a professional photographer, I am a middle-aged woman and mother of two boys who is often sleep-deprived AND her own worst critic. I can honestly say, these images are not only technically perfect, they are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! Adam possesses the rare talent of being able to show the inner beauty of his subjects. I was so impressed with his abilities, that I scheduled another session to include the most difficult subjects on the planet, my own teen boys and our dog. Adam completely outdid himself and created what I thought was impossible, beautiful images of my own little family. My boys have spent their entire lives 'assisting me' on photoshoots and years ago, refused to be the subject of ANY photos. They know every "trick in the book" when it comes to working with photography subjects, they are jaded and have 'seen it all'. I love them dearly and they are the worst, in my professional opinion, portrait subjects on the planet. I was nervous that the session would end in disappointment and frustration and, quite honestly, kept my expectations pretty low. Again, Adam completely surprised and delighted me with his talents! I am forever grateful to have these stunning images to cherish as my salty teen boys grown into young men. Now I need to make some difficult choices and select the best images to update my marketing materials and bring bliss to the walls of our home. They are all the best! BONUS: I finally have meaningful gifts for friends and family who have not seen a photo of the boys with me in many years. My only regret is that I didn't not do this much sooner. Thank you, Adam Chandler, for sharing your gifts with us. I look forward to many more portrait sessions in the future!
Photography for Danielle D.
Adam was fantastic. He captured our family vacation perfectly. He knew exactly where to set us up to get the best pictures. He was tremendously easy to work with - before, after and during the shoot. The bottom line was the product - a series of amazing pictures that we loved and have received countless compliments on. I would certainly work with him again and highly recommend him to anyone.
Portrait Photographer for Marilyn G.
We're not sure how he does it, but for the second year in a row Adam has brought magic to our annual family get-together. From finding the best light to make us all glow, to keeping four kids under eight happy and engaged, Adam gets it right. He makes the session fun, and the happy, relaxed result shows on everyone's face. He's a pleasure to work with on the business side, too. First-rate scheduling and communication.
Photographer for Sharon M.
We were looking for a photographer to take a three generation photo while our extended family of 16 came from all over the country for a family reunion at Folly Beach. My daughter read some great reviews about Adam Chandler and chose him. We could not have been happier with her decision! Even before our arrival, Adam asked for information that would help him get to know us better. Once we arrived at the beautiful location he chose for the pictures, we knew we had a winner. Adam was personable and professional. Most importantly for us, he did a fantastic job working with our six grandchildren under the age of seven. We were genuinely surprised at how good the little ones looked in the photos! Adam was so easy to work with, and we were even happier when we saw the results. The photos were just what we had hoped for, and a great mix of posed and casual. I would highly recommend Adam Chandler to anyone looking for a photographer in the Charleston/Folly Beach area.

Adam was great to work with, so flexible about rescheduling around inclement weather so our family could still have outdoor photos on the beach. He was warm, patient and kind to our multigenerational family of 15, handling our 2-year-old as well as our 75-year-old, and everyone in between. Even better than all of that, our photos are beautiful. We scheduled this session to capture my parents’ 50th anniversary, and we could not be happier with the experience or results. Thank you, Adam!!
Professional Headshot for Kari W.
We traveled to Charleston in November to celebrate our father's 70th birthday. Since losing my mother in 2004, it has been roughly 15 years since we had photographs as a family. My brother and I both have children too, so this celebration was the most fitting opportunity for family photos! Adam showed his professionalism upon booking by providing a questionnaire to guide him through our photo session. Through the knowledge he gained from that questionnaire, he immediately began poking fun at my husband who is always less than thrilled to be photographed 🙂 That instantly opened the door to a comfortable environment. Adam could read our family humor very well and kept the kids giggling and us adults cracking up as well. Adam could not have been more perfect for our family and our images are absolutely wonderful. They are genuine and full of love. Thanks Adam! You will come highly recommended to all of our friends who travel to Charleston.
Professional Photographer for McKenzie C.
Adam is truly so talented! He shot our surprise engagement and we instantly knew that we had to book him for our big day ASAP. The whole process was so simple and Adam was so open and flexible to small changes as we got closer to our wedding. Our photos are everything we could dream of and we can't wait to get them hung everywhere in our home!
Family Photographer for Creative Edge Dance Center
Adam was amazing with my two year old! Loved our session and the beautiful pictures! Thanks again Adam! -Kasie
Engagement Photographer for Katherine C.
I found Adam in 2014 for our annual family Thanksgiving gathering of 20+. My grandmother swears Adam is magical. We’ve been using him ever since. He was so helpful prior to our day in helping us make sure we dressed for success, and then during the shoot is really wonderful at capturing and corralling the troops - it’s not easy to capture 20+ at once, and then 6+ individual smaller families, etc. every year we are stunned with the results, he’s really become a staple — we used to do pro shots every few years but with Adam, there’s no year worth skipping. Also, my cousins husbands’ family who is local now uses him religiously too! We really can’t speak highly enough of working with Adam or about his work.
Portrait Photographer for Drew S.
Adam chandler is the best. First of all he knows his angles, his lighting, the best spots in Charleston. He knows how to capture the money shots and “the magic”. Right from my first conversation with him over the phone and then through email and text up to the moment we met and throughout the process he made it so easy, enjoyable, relaxing... and I just knew I was in good hands and the pictures were going to be amazing! After the shoot he told us what to expect and his pictures were stunning! I’m glad me and my girl got in touch with Adam and now we have photography we will cherish forever and have stunning pictures to capture our moment. You will not be disappointed with adam. You will be inpressed. In fact if you read my review and it helps you make the decision to use Adam, you’re welcome in advance. I don’t usually write reviews but I was so impressed I insisted in doing so.... because Adam really was that good! Enjoy Charleston! Do it right and give Adam a call, you’ll be glad you did!
Photographer for Tara B.
Can not say enough good things about Adam. We have used him for three separate photo sessions over the years and are always amazed of how he can truly capture the craziness of our family of five! He is very professional but fun and his work is very high quality.
Photography Services for Heather B.
We had Adam join us at the beach on Kiawah Island for multi generational family photos including 8 adults and 5 very young children (under 3yo). Adam was GREAT, he was so patient and helpful with getting the kids to smile and making sure our time was well spent. When we got out photos back we were THRILLED!! They came out wonderful and the candid moments he caught, especially of the kids, were awesome. We loved how the pictures came out and colors popped and can not recommend his services enough for anyone in the Charleston area.
Professional Headshot for Kathryn R.
Adam was fun to work with and put our whole group at ease, which was no easy task with our tired and fussy 4 month old! We loved the photos - he made us all look good!
Professional Headshot for Chris W.
Adam was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Setting everything up was simple, and when it came time for the photos he kept the kids engaged and knew how to set us up for the best possible pictures. The end result is the real prize- our family photos came out wonderfully and we couldn’t be happier! Thanks Adam!
Professional Photographer for Steve K.
Adam was not only easy and professional to work with from start to finish, he is kind- and super fun! He had the perfect personality to do our multi-generational family photos on the beach. The colors in the photos are stunning; he magically captured special moments, smiles and love. Thank you Adam!
