My wife and I got married in HHI back in August. We booked our photography with Sylvia based on her online portfolio. Our wedding pictures were INCREDIBLE and much better than we could have ever have imagined. Sylvia was so professional and nice and we barely even noticed she was there. Such natural pictures of our blended family. We plan on using her during our annual visits to document our family trips. Thank you Sylvia for such a great gift to us.

"Wonderful!!' Sylvia was caring, creative and professional. My photos are stunning and really captured the romantic sweetness of the evening. She got the photos back to us with 2 weeks and gave us a few preview photos the day following. Awesome!!

-Amanda from Pennsylvania

Sylvia was the absolute PERFECT photographer for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding. She captured both their spirits and the spirit of the day exactly as they wanted her to. Sylvia was professional, prompt, and lovely to work with. Very highly recommended!

-Sue from NC

Sylvia is unbelievable! We couldn't be happier with our experience with her at our wedding and in another session with family on the beach at Hilton Head. She has great vision, is very professional and her product is fantastic! We have so many wonderful photos to choose from we can't decide!!! Best decision we made was asking Sylvia to be our photographer. We will recommend her to EVERYONE!

-Renee from Hilton Head Island

Sylvia will absolutely not disappoint! Our photos are stunning. She was so professional throughout the entire process and kept everything on track. I'm so happy we chose her to capture our day and we will have these gorgeous photos to look back on forever. Her pricing is so reasonable and she's really flexible! We would definitely like to use her when back in the area for family photos! Couldn't be happier :)

-LIndsay from NC

Sylvia did an amazing job for our wedding. She communicated effectively with me before the big day to make sure everything was in order and ready. She captured every detail of the ceremony that we wanted as well as a wealth of family portraits. She was well organized and efficient while still providing quality photos of our big day. She was willing to walk to various portions of the beach and the grounds of the property in order to photograph the best scenic views and the setting sun for our groom and bride photos. I would recommend to anyone and would definitely use her again for other photo sessions.Couldn't be happier :)

-Carla from Georgia

Sylvia has been amazing to work with! We are living overseas so we planned our whole wedding from Sweden but it was never a problem, she always responds super quick to emails and she is very informative. I sent her some examples of other wedding photos we liked and she captured our day the way we wanted, she is very attentive and she can improvise. Our photos turned out better than we could ever have imagined! And on the wedding day I was a little stressed but she arrived calm and happy and I started to relax. It felt comfortable to have her around and we barely noticed her and she took relaxed and natural pictures that are so beautiful!

-Lotta from Sweden

Sylvia was absolutely amazing! We didn't even realize she was taking pictures other than the "posed" shots after the ceremony. The pictures came out beautifully and my daughter loved them all. Sylvia truly captured the emotions of the wedding. We would highly recommend her to anyone who asks.

-Marianne from Bluffton

I had a destination wedding in June on Hilton Head Island and used Sylvia as my photographer. I can't say enough great things about her and her company. She is very professional and prompt! Not being a local I had trust whomever I picked to do a good job. Sylvia lived up to that expectation. The pictures she took are beautiful and amazing. I am so thankful that I picked her to take out pictures. I highly recommend Sylvia for your wedding pictures.

-Beth from Chicago

I had a great experience working with Sylvia. She was responsive, punctual, and was always available to answer any questions I had about the process. As I had planned the wedding from afar, she was very helpful even suggesting wedding venues, vendors, etc. The photos she took came out beautifully and I am very happy with her work and would recommend her to any couple! Thanks Sylvia.

-Yifei from Hawaii

Sylvia took our engagement photos for our upcoming wedding. She was prompt and easy to get in touch with. Her pictures were beautiful and looked like a storybook. We were so pleased with the results!

-Danielle from Atlanta

We had a destination wedding. I picked Sylvia based on her website. Her ability to capture candid moments and the surrounding emotions impressed me. And she did a phenomenal job for our wedding! She certainly gave me everything that I was looking for and more. My wedding day was more perfect than I ever could have imagined, and she captured a little snippet of every part of it that I will forever cherish. She did not miss even the smallest piece of the day. She sent us almost 500 photos, and each one was beautiful, clear, and a perfect reflexion of the moment. She was expediant in working through the more formal moments and was able to capture so many of the emotions and feelings of the day in less formal (more candid) shots! We could not be more pleased with our choice! 

-Adrianne from Connecticut

Sylvia is an amazing photographer! The pictures of my wedding are beautiful! She is a very kind person, and made the whole process much easier! I could not have found a better photographer! She was quick with her responses and offered any help that she could. I definitely recommend! :-)

-Ashley from SC

When me and my husband decided to get married at the beach we were very concerned about finding a local photographer that could capture us the way we expected. We checked into several, but Sylvia just stood out because she seemed to be the most willing to make the day about us and conform to our schedules. We we're blown away with everything she did for our wedding she brought along her own props which were some of my husbands fav pictures. She stayed nearly the whole night making sure to capture all the memories. Her quality of work is still talked about among my friends and family. My family has made two appointments with her since (everytime we are in Hilton Head) to capture family photos. She truly takes pride in her work and is extremely talented.

-Whitney from Virginia

Sylvia was absolutely amazing. So professional, punctual, kind, and responsive. If we had any questions she was right there immediately to answer them. During our wedding planning time we met with her on several occasions. It made us feel so great the she was so reliable and really had our day and best interest in mind. She was so sweet and patient considering our families are complete party animals, she kept her cool and took control and captured the most amazing photos of our beautiful wedding. Brandt and I HIGHLY recommend Sylvia. She is top notch the best in our eyes. Her photos bought tears to our eyes and smiles to our hearts on how beautifully she captured our day.

-Melissa from Bluffton

Sylvia did a phenomenal job photographing our wedding. Through the whole process she was flexible and always quick to respond, she was a joy to work with! She allowed my husband and I to fully enjoy our day and be fully present in the moment with each other, we never felt rushed around. She was very professional and her work is beautiful with a very fair price, I highly recommend her! Thank you so much Sylvia.

-Kayliann from NC

My children purchased a family photo session from Sylvia for me as a Mother's Day gift. It was a wonderful gift and excellent choice of photographers! Sylvia made the session fun and comfortable for all of us. What a nice person! It was very important to me to capture the closeness of our family and I briefly mentioned to Sylvia that I love candid, unposed shots. She did an excellent job of combining both styles! Her website is also beautiful and very user-friendly. It was hard to narrow down for purchase but the website format helps to make those decisions. I would recommend Sylvia Schutz Photography to anyone looking to capture and hold onto special moments. Thank you Sylvia!

-Kim from Pennsylvania

Sylvia was excellent! She listened to what we wanted and then added her own creative touches without stepping on toes. She was just as concerned as we were to make sure that we had the perfect shot. She captured the spirit of our day. The pictures are better than I could have imagined.
