"Abby and Ryan made our entire photography experience a breeze! They worked so well with us in figuring out dates, to organizing the wedding timeline for photos, and when we had to meet up to discuss plans! I honestly don't know what we would have done with different photographers. They put their all into each couple and they try their hardest to meet our wants and they truly go above and beyond. I can't wait to work with them again and I would definitely recommend them to anyone!!!!"

"They did our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I was floored with how happy I was. Not only did they stick by our side in times of fear, but they took unbelievable photos. They were always easy to contact, extremely helpful. And whenever we froze up, they had great tactics to ease us up! I never realized I would be stiff in photos - but I got nervous! This couple made sure I was at ease. My father used to be an international photographer - and even he was amazed at the results! They captured moments I never got a chance to see! Precious moments that I will never lose now.

Definitely worth 5 stars."

"I could have never imagined that I would have photographers that put their EVERYTHING on the table for beautiful photos. It rained both on our wedding day and the day of our engagement shoot and Abby + Ryan were right there in it taking the most beautiful photos imaginable. After my experience I would never use another photographer for ANYTHING! Abby and Ryan were so personable and really saw that our needs and wants were exceeded!"

"Ryan and Abby were very pleasant, friendly, and easy to work with. They were willing to go above and beyond (literally - they climbed a steep trail up a mountain to take some great pictures for us). They got the pictures to us in a timely manner, and the photos turned out great!"

"Aureola spectrum photography was amazing to work with. I used them for my engagement pictures and wedding as well. Abby and ryan are a great team and extremely talented photographers. I was able to get the shots I wanted and they both had great ideas for pictures that were taken. When taking the pictures try made me feel at ease and my husband and I ha such a good time working with them. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for photographers for their wedding! You won't be disappointed!"

"I absolutely love the work that Ryan and Abby did for us! They are so creative and fun to work with and did excellent with our kids! We had a change in our original wedding plans and had to move the date up, but thankfully their schedule was open on our new date and they were able to accommodate our new plans flawlessly! Thank you so much!"

"Ryan and Abby work so well together! They photographed my wedding in lancaster SC. It was an all day event and they took so many wonderful pictures! It took them about 4-5 weeks to get my pictures up on their website which is amazing being that the wedding was in October and that is peak wedding season! They took pictures of everything and it really helped to capture the day! :) they are worth every penny! :)"

"Working with Abby and Ryan was an absolutely amazing experience! After our original photographer found out they were due to have a baby around the time of our wedding, we quickly went into panic mode trying to find a equally exception photography team to capture our wedding. I never imagined finding such a perfect pair online - and that's exactly what we found in Abby & Ryan. We wouldn't have wanted anyone else to share our day and preserve our memories.

Abby and Ryan were accommodating, flexible, creative, patient and understanding. They seemed to capture all the action without being in the way or a helicopter hovering over. They were incredible, made sure to capture everything we wanted and even threw in their own creative ideas to the mix to make for a complete and wonderful experience. Have no doubts if you are considering hiring them for your event... they will not let you down... they will beat your expectations!

"My husband and I were in need of a wedding photographer and we lucked out because not only did we have one great photographer, but two! For a very reasonable price we received engagement and wedding photographs from Abby and Ryan, who own Aureola Spectrum Photography. They made us feel very at ease and comfortable with them. They were very easy to get in contact with and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we may have had. They were professional, had some wonderful ideas, and even worked with ideas we had for our two sessions. We loved our pictures and we loved working with the two of them. They were a great choice or us and will be for you!"

"My fiancé and I planned for a short engagement, so it was important to find a photographer quickly. Almost immediately after requesting a photographer on Thumbtack, Aureola Spectrum responded with their information. I was looking for a specific kind of photography, and they seemed like a good fit, so after a few days, I decided to hire them.

Despite living about 3 hours away, they came here to Raleigh to meet with me and do a bridal shoot (as well as for the wedding itself). I hadn't been considering one beforehand, but it was included in their service and I'm so glad we did it! It was nice to have a "trial run" in my dress, and as I found out later, the extra time saved on the day of the wedding was a godsend.

The bridal shoot took about 3 hours, and the wedding + reception lasted about 6 hours, but they arrived 2 hours early on the wedding day (as we had arranged) and were on hand the entire time. Abby and Ryan were such great people to work with and were open to whatever I wanted to get out of both shoots. I'm not a very creative person when it comes to photos, but they were very helpful in planning poses and other pictures which all turned out to be incredibly lovely."

"I hired Abby and Ryan to photograph my wedding, and I made the right choice! They are great people to work with, and the finished products were amazing. I love my wedding pictures!

Their price is fantastic and you get a lot for your money. They also include a bridal photo shoot with the package, which is something I would not have considered otherwise, and I was glad I did it! I'm one of those people who always ends up making a silly face when you point a camera at me, but they were able to get all kinds of good pictures. They had a lot of fun ideas for shots, and were willing to go along with some unusual shot ideas I had as well. At the wedding and reception, they went above and beyond, staying long past the time in the contract.

I was completely satisfied with Abby and Ryan's work, and I highly recommend them.

"I cannot say enough great things about Ryan and Abby (Aureola Spectrum Photography). From the moment I hired them to photograph my daughter's bridal shoot and wedding, I knew I made the right choice. They were very organized, detail oriented, inquired about our likes and dislikes, and stayed in contact with us constantly. They scheduled all of the photo shoots and sent calendar requests so I did not have to worry about these details. They chose Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens for the bridal shoot. It rained all day, but they were very calm, stayed late, came up with great ideas, and the photos were amazing. My daughter was a very anxious bride, but Ryan knew just how to calm her nerves prior to the wedding. They are very professional, yet very personable. They produce high quality photos for an affordable price and provide you with a full copyright release for unlimited prints. You get two creative photographers for less than the price of one. I highly recommend this couple for all of your photography needs! Thanks so much Ryan and Abby for providing us with beautiful photographs and lasting memories of such a special day! I can't wait to work with you again."

"Let's talk about the best photography services I have ever encountered. The Aureola Spectrum is the top of the line! This couple team is highly enthusiastic and tons of fun to work with. The two of them catered to my every want and need for engagement, bridal, ceremony, and reception pictures. I received exclusive rights to over 3000 photos that were taken. The two individuals are highly creative and  a delight to be around. Not to mention, their services are the most affordable in the North Carolina area with high quality results."

"It was a great experience for the band! Ryan stayed in contact reguarding all aspects of the appt. He and Abby arrived early and stayed longer than contracted for. There were two cameras taking shots instead of the expected one camera. He had the pictures up on his website the next day! Great pics with so many to pick from for our promo. Don't hesitate to call Aureola Spectrum Photography! Ryan and Abby are super great people!"

"I did my engagement pictures with Aureola Spectrum Photography, and I could not have had a better experience with anyone else. The fact that there were two photographers gave us twice the amazing photos, and they were very natural. I warned them before the photography session that my fiance is not very good at taking pictures. He is kind of scared of the camera, and I have not seen many good photos of him. But when we did the photo shoot, my fiance was the one getting the good pictures, and he was coming up with great photo ideas and poses. He felt very comfortable with them, and he was more relaxed than I have ever seen him. I highly recommend Aureola Spectrum to all of my friends and family, and anyone who is looking for an outstanding and relaxing photography experience."
