Extremely professional, amazing photographer!
Amy is the perfect photographer! Like many of these reviews say, she is exactly what you need on the day of your wedding: she is professional, accommodating, calm, cool and collected. From the engagement shoot to putting together the photo album, she truly listens to any ideas you may have, and if you need suggestions, she always has answers! Amy is so creative and is also really fun to work with! Her style is so unique and we loved how beautiful and real our photos look. Aside from taking great photos, her professionalism shines through in everything she does-- her website (which speaks for itself) is incredible, and the process of ordering photos/albums is so organized and could not have been smoother.Sent on 02/24/2020

Talented and fun photographer who captures the full emotions of the day
My husband is in media and previously worked as a freelance photographer + videographer himself. So not only was having great photos a top priority of ours, but I also trusted his ability to choose the 'right' photographer. Amy out shined them all with her portfolio.
In particular, we loved her ability to capture the true emotions of the day through both the organized photos as well as, more importantly, through her candid shots. We searched quite a bit for someone who could realistically do that and I can tell you that it's very rare.
We personally enjoyed her work and presence, but I think the true validation came from our guests who were impressed by how she actively got on the dance floor to get the best shots and angles. Once we received our photos, we heard, over and over again, just how impressed people were with how 'she truly captured the emotions of the day.' I can't tell you how many times I heard this from others! We firmly believe this as well and hope that others will have the chance for her to capture the emotions of their special day.
Aside from being incredibly talented, Amy is an absolute pleasure to be around. Your photographer is the person you as a couple will undoubtedly spend the most time with throughout the day. Having a caring, fun, and personable photographer makes all the difference in feeling both comfortable and enjoying the day even more.
Lastly, we got married right before COVID picked up in NYC. I think that's the real test of someone-- if you can be a calming presence during a wedding, let alone a wedding on the eve of a pandemic, then you are *truly* one of the best!
We hope to work with Amy again for family photos. That's how much we love and appreciate her work and her as an individual!Sent on 04/12/2020

Thoughtful, Personal, and Extremely Talented
I am myself a photographer so I was very particular about who we hired. Amy ticked all of our boxes and more. Not only is she a technically great photographer she is a truly gifted artist. She takes the time to get to know her subjects and what they're looking for. She works hard and goes the extra mile to make sure she's getting everything the client asked for and everything the client didn't know they wanted. Amy clearly cares a great deal about her work and her subjects. She goes above and beyond expectations and does everything she can to make her services are worth every penny and makes her clients feel special. We feel so blessed to have found Amy amongst the endless list of wedding photographers out there. Hire her! You won't regret it.Sent on 08/31/2019
