Best Decision After Saying Yes
I really don’t know where to start. There were times when I’m not sure how our wedding would have happened without April Williams Photography.Sent on 01/28/2021
We met April at a Portland Wedding Show...actually we met her husband first, but the way he sang her praises, combined with the beautiful artistry of how she played with light in her photography, we knew we had to meet her. April’s bright smile and warmth radiated from moment one and never left.
We met with her again later that month to discuss what our vision was for our wedding, packages and budget. She gave us the privacy and space to discuss between ourselves and we were still so wowed over, by not only her talent but April as a person, that we rearranged our budget just so she was our photographer.
Our (original) wedding date was spring of 2020. Two weeks before our event we had to make the decision on whether or not to move forward despite this new thing called “COVID”. April was one of the first people I called. She talked to me for (easily) 15-20 minutes, reminding me that the only thing that mattered was my honey & I and that she’d be there regardless!
After chatting with our other vendors and weighing the want to get married with being safe - we pushed our wedding date to early Autumn 2020 (because there’s no way COVID would still be “a thing”). The week we (re)scheduled for was the week of the large wild fires in Oregon. Once again, we were facing the question of do we move forward; and once again April was there by our side saying she’d support us no matter our decision - at our venue, a back yard wedding or a pajama part in our livingroom with our fur-babies.
We kept to our date but changed venue with a 24-hour notice to our vendors. Didn’t phase April at all. She was there bright and early to scout the new location for the perfect backdrops.
She captured both the tender and silly sides of family, didn’t hesitate to accommodate weird photos requests from me (a Gone with the Wind corset photo and wearing cat ears at our First Look), and managed to turn thr smoke filled air into a magical fairy world of mist and beauty.
April wasn’t just our photographer - she was a therapist, a friend, and our wedding guardian. Booking April Williams was the best decision we made, next to saying Yes to one another. She’ll forever be in my contacts and be our go-to photographer.

Overall amazing experience!
April went above and beyond! We were looking for a wedding photographer for our small COVID wedding. Our wedding happened to be on a day where the weather was a combination of freezing wind and sideways rain. April was so professional with contagious excitement and energy. Our photos turned out better than I ever could have imagined! We are no doubt going to book her for our larger celebration and would recommend her in a heartbeat.Sent on 01/28/2021
April Williams Photography's reply:Katrina, thank you so much! I can't wait for the big party! Fingers crossed for good weather, but either way, we've got this!

I cannot get over how amazing April is.
She is so passionate about her job and it shows in her beautiful pictures! I love how she can envision a picture in her mind and bring it to life in the click of a snap! She was so professional and so easy to work with.
It rained the day of our wedding and our timeline completely changed and April adapted quickly! We still got all the wonderful photos that we will have to cherish forever. We walked around Laurelhurstclub Park for our pictures and April would take a moment, picture something in her mind and then tell us what to do and were to stand. From climbing inside a branch to lakeside strolls, we cannot get over our beautiful pictures. I have recommended her to everyone I know who needs pictures!! Thank you so much, April!Sent on 02/20/2020
