I found Cardens Photograpy through a friend who had recently gotten married. They did such a great job with the videography for her wedding that I contacted them immediately. Virginia and Tim were always easy to reach and Tim made sure he had all the details necessary the week before the wedding. We hadn’t met them in person because they live far from us, but if my friend loved them and said they were a dream to work with, I knew we would be in good hands. They were awesome to spend the day with and were on top of everything. As a bridal vendor myself I have seen a great deal of bad photography/bad videography. I’ve been witness to videographers being intrusive or completely oblivious to moments that they should be capturing. Virginia and Tim were the complete opposite! Always staying a step ahead and filming all the moments I really wanted to capture!
Virginia spent the first part of the day in my suite watching the madness of getting hair/makeup done and she was awesome to have around! She was helpful and calm and didn’t let any of the surrounding craziness get to her
Thank you to both you guys for working with us!

Carden’s did our photography for our wedding on 9/8 and did a great job! They were always quick to respond to all emails and answer all our questions. On the day of the wedding, I didn’t even realize they were there! We are still waiting on most of our pictures, but the ones we’ve seen we love! They did our formal pictures in under an hour which we really appreciated and never made us stop or pulled us away from anything to take photos through out the night! I would highly recommend Tim and Virginia!
Carden’s Photography photographed our October 29, 2011 wedding, as well as our engagement pictures in February 2011. They were fabulous.
I cannot say enough positive things. The Cardens are friendly, really easy-going, and professional. Despite the blizzard that happened on our wedding day, one of the photographers coming down with the flu, and horrible road conditions, they acted like the pros they were and the pictures we’ve seen thus far are absolutely beautiful.
Honestly, my entire office and most of our family and friends cannot stop talking about the pictures Virginia took of us in the snow! Highly recommended and a great value for your money!
Virginia and Tim Carden did our October 15 wedding. They were so easygoing and pleasant to work with before the wedding. They were always responsive to our questions and took all of our requests very seriously. They really helped us to figure out scheduling and logistics.
On our wedding day, they arrived right on time and got right to work. They captured all the important pre-wedding details. They were extremely flexible and patient. They are also just really nice people! During the ceremony and reception, they were completely inconspicuous. I hardly remember seeing them at all. They weren’t pushy like some wedding photographers and just captured really candid beautiful moments.
We just got our online gallery and could not be happier. The pictures are so beautiful and artistic. There are so many planned and unplanned details, like stunning shots of the sky and backgrounds. The photos truly capture the love we felt on our wedding day. The colors and composition are gorgeous. I would highly recommend Virginia and Tim Carden. They are professional, organized, and experienced, while being incredibly talented, artistic, and fun. Their prices are also amazingly reasonable. We really trusted them to take fabulous pictures that we would always cherish, and they delivered beyond our expectations. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
Virginia and Tim Carden are wonderful to work with. They took amazing photos at our wedding in Gettysburg on a very cold, wet, October day. They repeatedly said the lighting was perfect for picture-taking and they were right; the shots came out beautifully. They have a very unique photography style and the photo quality is outstanding. Overall, great photographers and very nice people!
My experience with Carden’s Photography, was absolutely fantastic! I initially hired them for my wedding because they had multiple photo packages that would accommodate anyone’s price point, not to mention their great website! The day of my wedding, the Carden’s were personable and friendly, but stayed at enough of a distance to not make anyone feel uncomfortable. I don’t even remember them being at the reception!! My pictures were fantastic and anyone I show them too says the exact same thing! I would definitely recommend them for any function and I will definitely use them in the future! Thanks guys!!”
As a wedding coordinator, my first priority is to make sure my clients are happy and have a smooth wedding day — and Tim and Virginia provide such superior service to my clients that I NEVER have to worry about any problems in that area. The final images, of course, extremely important (and anyone can see just how talented they are), but I can always take comfort in their experience and professionalism. They are simply top-notch when it comes to service, value, and quality. It is a privilege to work alongside them.
Tim and Virginia were amazing! I knew after a phone conversation that I was done looking and that I couldn’t wait to meet them in person. Our engagement session was the first time that we had met in person and it wasn’t an awkward situation. They made us comfortable and the photos turned out great. It was a great lead up to the ceremony and reception. It seemed that they were seamlessly, everywhere! I’ve never felt more beautiful than I did after seeing the photos from the wedding day. I can’t wait to come up with a reason to have more photos taken with Cardens. Thanks! See More of the review Here
Tim and Virginia, for the 9 months of our engagement, I wanted 2 things- to marry Jon and to get awesome wedding photos. I know that it is difficult to photograph a photographer: we have impossible standards. I admit that I was about 99.9% certain that no one could meet the expectations I had for our engagement and wedding photos. I have never been so happy to be proved wrong! Jon and I enjoyed working with you both almost as much as we enjoy our photos! I loved every minute of our wedding day and having you both there- who I knew I could trust to get the job done while laughing as much as we did – played a huge part in making that happen. I can honestly say that once our portraits were taken I don’t even remember seeing you two for the rest of the night. That is the best compliment I can pay you. I had such faith that you were capturing ever moment of the night that I was actually able to be in each moment! Thank You!
We LOVE our pictures. We are so happy we hired the Cardens – they are a great couple and we felt really comfortable with them on our wedding day, and during our engagement session. We only wish we’d had more time between the ceremony and reception to take more pictures, because for sure we would have loved them.
Great quality, pleasant people – VERY happy with our choice
The husband and wife team of Carden’s were fantastic to work with! We are so happy with our wedding photos. They couldn’t have done a better job!
I highly recommend Cardens. We had them at our wedding, and the results were amazing. They know which photos to take so that you have a complete story captured from the special day. The photos they take are not snapshots. They are art.
Kraig and I are so happy to have found Cardens Photography on WeddingWire. We lived in North Carolina but were getting married in our hometown in Pennsylvania and Virginia was so helpful through the whole process…We have not seen all the photos yet but the photos that we have seen are amazing and the slideshow that she provides is beautiful!!!! I would recommend Cardens to everyone I know!!!
I am very picky about pictures of myself so I was very nervous about my wedding pictures. Virginia did an awesome job of making me feel comfortable and assuring me that she would not post any pictures she thought I would not like. She had some great ideas for outdoor pictures at the ceremony site that I would have never even thought of. When I first saw the pictures I was thrilled! They were absolutely incredible! I would without a doubt recommend Carden’s to anyone. Virginia and her husband are really cool too!!
