About Images by Misti Layne

I am the storyteller and you are the story. There is a bit of my soul in every photograph I take.

I tell stories with my photographs for weddings and portraits with a classic and timelessly simple style. It's emotions and feelings and art together.

Images tell a story and they are there for me to find. It is about me watching, listening, learning and being at the ready for the instant THE image hits me and I push the button. It is a series of images that provoke emotion and thought. This happens with trust and openness and I know I can only get this if you trust me and I am open enough for you to do that. When there is this intimacy, I can get to the heart of the images and that is when the storytelling photography happens. 

Photographing weddings and commitment ceremonies, family portraiture, pregnancy and engagement portraits are all steps in documenting the important events of your life. I have to understand the goal and do what it takes to make it happen. I am the storyteller and you are the story.

My photographs are not posed but capture the brilliance and sparkle of people naturally. I want to be your photographer for life, not just your wedding photographer.

Misti was AMAZING! Super fun to work with and really lets you relax and enjoy your time and day. She and her assistant captured so many wonderful images but no one ever felt like they were in the way or constantly pushing for photographs. It was a pleasure to have her photograph my wedding. Insanely pleased with all my images!

Misti is a wonderful photographer. We feel so very lucky to have had her skilled hand orchestrating the photography on our wedding day. She was very quick to respond by email and was flexible with negotiating prices. She also knew our venue very well and offered tips and guidance in the months before and during our wedding. We were so happy with the quality of our wedding photos. We recommend her completely.

As can only be expected from her name, Misti is incredible. We started with a list of very strong wedding photo vendors recommended by our coordinator (who was incredible!) and there was not a photographer in there that we didn't like. However, we were drawn to Misti because her photo work appeared to just be a notch above all the rest. The pictures were a little clearer, a little brighter, and the moment was a little better.

After we retained Misti, we had a fun time exchanging emails with her, explaining what we need, going through details, and her working with our coordinator to go through the nitty-gritty. We were able to clearly articulate what we wanted in a photographer, and she had no problem accommodating.

When we hit day of, I can truly say Misti is exactly what we wanted. With her light and playful mood, she was fun to talk to and kept everyone happy. Most importantly, she had a wonderful way of blending in. We really didn't want a wedding photographer that was overly demanding or took us out of the moment. Misti was perfect in that she made it clear when she needed us, why, and kept it short. All other times, she was taking wonderful candid shots that turned out just beautifully.

While working with Misti was a delight, the real deal and reason we hired her was for the photos, and they are exceptional! We received nearly seven hundred of the most beautiful, wonderful photos we could imagine. Moments that I thought weren't captured are there, the moments I was hoping would come out, all came out beautifully.

Choosing a wedding photographer is a surprisingly stressful, difficult decision. You have to judge around character, quality of work, expenses, and tons of other metrics. In the end, I am so very glad that we went with Misti. She excelled in every metric and provided us with a product that made us so very happy. If you can afford her, hire her: You will never regret it.

Misti is a GREAT photographer

Misti was a delight from the very first moment we spoke. She has an amazing eye and a great talent for capturing those little happy moments that happen at weddings. The groom himself was a photography enthusiast, and he absolutely loved all the shots. Misti was also very accommodating and flexible, and I felt completely at ease working with her. She has true talent and I can recommend her highly.
