Worry Free Wedding Day!
My new husband and I are very happy that we chose Bill Persons to photograph our wedding day.Sent on 05/08/2019
Bill is warm and friendly - a kind professional with lots of patience!
He checked in with us two weeks before our event - just to touch base - and that is so comforting!
Since there are so many details to be concerned with - up to and on - your special day it’s just wonderful to have complete trust in your photographer as we had with Bill.

The Art of Marriage
Bill is a fun, artistic guy. I loved working with him and he captured the best moments of my life. Bill even offered a second shooter for free, as he had someone apprenticing with him. Between the two of them our photos are magical. They captured all the right moments and the best lighting. It was wonderful to have them share in our special day and I look forward to having them shoot for me again and have actively recommended Bill to all my engaged friends.Sent on 08/07/2019
Bill does a lot of shots in a photo journalistic style and captures amazing candid photos. My big day was steeped in family tradition. I got married 6 years from the day that my husband asked me to be his girlfriend, which just so happened to be my grandparents wedding anniversary. I've been a member of the same church as my grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, all my life. They all have the same wedding portraits at the same alter, in front of the same breath-taking stained glass doors. Bill helped me to recreate that imagery, but also helped me to create new shots.
Boy, did we have a party. From the church I grew up in, to the childhood park where I learned to fish and ride my bike and play basketball, to the banquet hall Bill and his apprentice captured every moment. With the up lighting of the room and the intelligent dance lighting and the dimmed lighting, Bill captured all the dancing, all the crying, all the singing. I cannot stress enough how great he was. And even though he captured everything, Bill is a ninja. He blended in and we didn't feel like we had cameras and paparazzi in our face all night.
What a great time. Thank you, Bill!

Excellent photographer for capturing details for an intimate wedding
In short - Bill is wonderful to work with, extremely gracious, and went above and beyond to capture the feeling of our intimate wedding. To give a more detailed review:Sent on 05/28/2019
- Very easy to book and work with - Bill shot our intimate (less than 20-person) wedding in November 2017 the day before Thanksgiving. Despite the short notice we gave (just a few weeks) and the proximity to the holidays, Bill accommodated us and was very easy to communicate with.
- Detail-oriented in preparation - We had a phone call prior to the wedding where we went through the details of our wedding, and Bill was very thoughtful about the questions he was asking and in getting us to think through considerations for our wedding.
- Emphasis on the candid moments - We prioritized capturing the candid, intimate moments throughout the wedding, and Bill delivered on this with many beautiful shots of big and small moments throughout our wedding and reception. Even a few months after, it is a joy to look through our photos and remember how that evening felt.
- Extremely personable
- Overall, Bill was just a joy to work with. He fit right into our intimate wedding, getting our guests to be comfortable with the camera easily. He is clearly very passionate about his craft, and made us feel that he cared very much about capturing our wedding the way we wanted. Overall, we are very happy with our decision to work with Bill for our intimate wedding, and would highly recommend him to others with a similar vibe, who want to focus on the feelings and the moments within.
Thank you Bill!
