April was absolutely amazing to work with! We had our wedding in Charlottesville, but currently live in Atlanta, GA, so we met April over FaceTime. She was delightful to talk to and made us feel at ease, even over the phone. We loved her past work and thought she worked with our personalities perfectly, so we booked her. When we were visiting Charlottesville a month before our wedding, she met with us and worked with us to create our wedding timeline. After meeting with her, we felt this great weight lifted off our shoulders and knew we'd made the right decision picking April. The day of the wedding, she was relaxed and kind, but also took control of every chaotic room (in a great way!). We loved having April with us throughout the day and both of our families loved her presence at the reception. We've already gotten our sneak peaks back -- we are OBSESSED and can't wait to see the rest! Having April as our photographer was one of the best choices we made and we highly recommend her!Sent on 12/24/2017

WOW! My husband and I are so thankful we hired April as our wedding photographer. There are plenty of amazing wedding photographers in the Charlottesville area, but two things put April in a league of her own: (1) her calming presence, kindness and genuine love for her clients and (2) her ability to truly capture the emotion of the day in a way that lets her client's love shine through. From the moment we first spoke with April she immediately put us at ease and made us feel completely relaxed and confident. Throughout the hectic wedding planning process, April was our rock, several times filling the role of counselor and wedding planner. On the day of our wedding, April's ability to inspire confidence and put everyone at ease was crucial and it really shows in the final product. April also has tremendous vision and creativity and was willing to truly be a guest at our wedding and join in on the fun. I've seen a lot of wedding photographers disengaged on the sidelines but April has this unparalleled ability to wrap herself up in the emotion of the day, which means her photos reflect all those emotions, too. You'll find April in the middle of conga line, on the stage with the band or climbing over barbed wire to get the perfect shot. When we look at our photos we can remember exactly what we were thinking or feeling in that particular moment. I truly believe April is able to capture this level of genuine emotion from her clients because of her amazing personality. We are so glad April was along for the ride with us on the first day of this new chapter in our lives and we look forward to continuing to work with her as we journey through life.Sent on 02/07/2018

April is fantastic! In addition to being an amazingly talented photographer, she was so much fun to have around during our wedding. My husband and I were nervous in front of the camera but she made us feel so much more relaxed, which helped make the photos awesome. We are so glad she was there to capture our wedding day and absolutely love the photos she took for us.Sent on 10/17/2017
