The Long Version: What I wanted for my wedding photos was something beautiful but artsy and fun. I also wanted an editorial/magazine look as well as candid shots. I knew it was a tall order to ask for. I probably looked at over 50 photographer's websites and the only one whose photos who made me stop were Lisa's. I knew immediately that I wanted her to be our photographer, but I played it cool and contacted her. We arranged a meeting, and we talked about her experience as well as what I was looking for. As my now husband and I left, I was actually bouncing up and down outside saying "can we have her?!" and we immediately booked her. She was the second thing we booked (first being the location) and to me was the most important since these photos were going to lifetime memories.
We kept in contact throughout the months, and even went to the ceremony site together to get a good idea of what types spaces would make for great photos. The day of the big event came, and she was great. She worked so well with everyone. She even showed us some of the photos on the camera as we were taking them.
When my photos first came up on her blog post I almost fell out of my chair. I had seen her work, and how great it was, but to see my husband and I looking that great as well. I just couldn't believe it. We looked like we came out of a bridal magazine! You can really tell she comes from an artist’s background as the shots are beautifully composed. I loved every one of the photos. I especially loved the candid shots she got, as those are the moments I love best.
I basically got EVERYTHING I wanted and more out of my wedding photos. We have beautiful posed magazine shots, fun candid shots, family shots, shots of the party. My entire wedding was captured from all angles. I've gotten so many compliments on my wedding photos from those who were there and beyond. Her work truly made me feel like a beautiful princess with my handsome prince on our day. The absolute best decision I made was to hire Lisa. In fact we are going to do a belated "day after" session this fall so I can get some fun fall color photos. I seriously cannot sing her praises enough.
Thank you SO much, Suzannah, for your amazingly touching review! Both the short and long versions made me a little weepy, but in a good way! I loved everything about working with you. I loved your wedding day and how relaxed everything was. You, your husband, and family and friends, were an absolute joy to be around to photograph. I cannot wait to work with you more this year! Hopefully our photography adventures will never end! ;) Thanks again!
