    Beautiful photos, excellent service!

    April was great to work with from day one! We purchased her services for our wedding (which included an engagement photoshoot) and she delivered beyond our expectations! April was prompt to respond to any questions, and very efficient when it came to gathering everyone and taking pictures. Our only complaint is the sore jaws from smiling so often, April made it very difficult to keep a straight face, and had us smiling from the beginning of the day till the end. She even helped us with our wedding timeline when our coordinator fell behind. Thank you to April and her assistant for helping the day run so smoothly! We recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful photos that will be cherished for a lifetime!

    Phenomenal photographer!

    There are no words to describe how great April is! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further! April is your girl. She photographed my brothers wedding 10 years ago and i knew i wanted her to photograph my day as well! My husband does not enjoy photos, but she went above and beyond to make sure he was comfortable and knew what to expect. She is easy to communicate with and if you need anything, she is available through email, text, and phone calls and very quick to respond. She communicated with us regularly prior to our wedding and made sure she knew what our vision was and asked detailed questions to make it come to life. Prior to our day she created a detailed wedding timeline which my wedding planner used to fill in other details for the day. She works well with all vendors and goes with the flow if the timeline gets altered. She even let us borrow her hanger to hang my dress on and ring boxes for detailed photos. Her pictures are gorgeous! I love the coloring and how she captures the smiles and true feelings of others from the day. She was there for each important event and did not miss any photo opportunities! I would recommend booking April for all of your photography needs!

    If I could give April 100/10 I would!!!

    April is nothing short of perfect and amazing. She is so easy to work with, so kind, and flexible. April shot a wedding I was in and she QUICKLY became my dream photographer. Several years later, I had my chance and she did not disappoint. In fact, April shot BEYOND expectations. Her photos brought back the feeling we had the day of our wedding. I couldn鈥檛 recommend a better photographer to work with!

    Magical and Perfect

    April gave us everything we were looking for and more as our wedding and engagement photographer. She鈥檚 organized, kind, thoughtful, funny, and ridiculously talented. I鈥檝e never been one to think of myself as particularly photogenic but April made me feel like a model. It took me weeks to pick out which engagement photos to print and frame for our home because I was obsessed with all of them. We immediately booked her for our wedding and April once again showed us why she鈥檚 the best. She had an incredibly organized and detailed timeline for the wedding day, recommended an amazing videographer to capture our day, gave us a beautiful guest book with engagement photos for guests to sign around, and captured the raw human emotion of our wedding day so perfectly. April was the first wedding vendor we hired and it was for a reason.

    I looked at several photographers in the Huntsville area, but ultimately decided on April Stanley because her packages were a little more affordable than some other photographers in the area. I checked out her website and was blown away by the beauty of the photos and her ability to capture "real" moments between couples on their wedding day rather than posed shots (though those were great as well!). From the day I contacted her about package pricing to the wedding day and beyond, she was always extremely helpful, accommodating, and responsive. One of the things I loved the most was that she was very, very organized and helped me create a detailed day-of timeline to keep me us schedule for taking pictures. In addition, her photography packages are customizable, so I was able to create something that was exactly what I needed! April and her team were very helpful and efficient on our wedding day, and used our time very wisely to help get us back on schedule when we fell behind. Wedding photography is an investment no matter you you use, but I would 100% recommend April and her team to all my friends! Well worth the money!

    April is the best!

    April was AMAZING to work with. She helped us create the perfect timeline for our day, and kept us on track so we didn't run behind during pictures. She was super great at directing all of us in poses, and was just and all around pleasure to work with. Our photos came out amazing. I couldn't have picked a better photographer for our special day! You can't go wrong with April.

    We love her!

    April was so great to work with! My husband and I used her for both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures and they all came out beautifully!! For our wedding, we had some sensitive family dynamics and April was mindful, considerate, and made things flow so smoothly. April and her team are wonderful and we plan on using them again in the future!

    Bride - April was amazing to work with!

    April was so great to work with! She was so professional, yet made us feel so comfortable. She has a great timeline that we used and it was absolutely flawless! She is very detailed oriented which I loved and made our day go so smoothly. April and her team were a dream to work with, the investment is definitely worth the money!

    April is an absolute dream!

    April is an amazing photographer and an absolute dream to work with! We used her for engagement pictures, where she was incredibly patient with us and our poorly-behaved dogs. We loved this opportunity to get to know April before our wedding day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she put together a very detailed wedding day schedule; this was incredibly helpful for us to share with our families & our wedding party, and also with other vendors. On the day of the wedding, she made sure everything flowed smoothly. And, of course, she made sure everything was picture perfect! My husband and I can't imagine our wedding day without April, and we can't recommend her enough to future brides and grooms!!

    Absolutely amazing!

    We had the pleasure to work with April for our engagement and wedding this Summer. She was very kind, open-minded, and up for any challenge we threw at her. She captured hours of an Indian-American fusion wedding with two ceremonies and a reception all in a day with such detail! She and her assistant we accommodating, patient, and very flexible on wedding day despite the goofiness of our wedding party. Thank you for making this experience so smooth and wonderful! We are absolutely in awe of her masterpiece! Each photo captured our day so beautifully. Thank you again, April!!

    Dream Photographer

    April was just the best. She was so organized, very open to our ideas, and so kind/cheerful and helpful in keeping us on track on our wedding day. And we were absolutely thrilled when we got our preview shots! They were just what we had envisioned, and more.

    No better photographer than April

    A little background about me, I love photography. I love artistic shots and portraits, so I have some knowledge when it comes to photography; therefore, you can trust me when I say that April is one of the best, maybe the best, photographer in Alabama and the Tennessee valley. My now wife, then fiancee, and me picked April not just because she鈥檚 unbelievably good at what she does, but also how sweet, on time, knowledgeable, and just plain awesome she is. Ever since we got our engagement pictures with her, we knew we would use her for our wedding, and we were not disappointed. You won鈥檛 be either.

    Awesome photographer!

    April was our photographer for both our engagement session and our wedding. We are so happy with all our photos! We had so much fun with our engagement session, and she even helped choose outfits and colors that look good in photos. Our wedding photos are better than we could have ever imagined! She uses lighting perfectly to capture every moment. Her sunset pictures and night shots are gorgeous. She was available during the whole process of wedding planning to answer questions and make sure we got all the shots we wanted. She made a detailed wedding day timeline to keep everything organized. We were so lucky to have her as our photographer and would recommend her to anyone!
