About

I don't believe in "directing" my clients. Instead, before your event or before our photography session, I find out what my clients want to capture in their photos - what story they want to tell - and offer different suggestions about how we can most beautifully do this. Our time together is a creative collaboration; I really want you to be part of the creative process. I believe this allows us to have fun and you to relax and enjoy your events or photo session without pressure. I prefer to work with you to create a specially designed package based on your needs and your goals, and we price these individualized packages based on your selections and needs. All of our services are highly customized; we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. "Some photographers document weddings as events—the walk down the aisle, the exchange of "I Do," the cutting of the cake. I want to capture that the marriage really is—the couple, and their family and friends, on a journey together that spans generations," Lisa Whalen.

    Lisa and her team are a joy to work with. She is fun and professional. Her photos are amazing and she makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Half the time you don't even know she is there snapping photos! She sacrifices her body to get the shots that she wants and they look amazing. She is very artistic and it shows!! Well worth the investment!

    My husband and I hired Lisa Whalen for our engagement and wedding pictures, and we recommend her without reservation. She did a phenomenal job in so many respects, and most importantly, was a *joy* to work with. As a photographer, Lisa is easygoing and able to capture not just a beautiful photograph, but the meaning in that moment. I have been so impressed with her talent, her easygoing attitude and eye for things. She’s very responsive and was able to work with us in terms of the required family portraits as well as telling the story of our wedding day through the pictures.

    She also got us our wedding pictures within a month of our wedding day! It was so exciting to get them so quickly. She was also extremely flexible in "massaging" some of the pictures, which was extremely appreciated.

    Five stars are hard to come by.....but Lisa deserves them with enthusiasm. Choosing a photographer is probably one of the most difficult and most important decisions you will make to capture your most treasured memories. She is an absolute delight to work with. Besides her professionalism and her quality of work, the most important thing I can say is that Lisa captures the person's - the couple's spirit. Her photos tell a story without a script. If you want cookie cutter wedding and engagement photos, DON'T pick Lisa, but if you want a beautiful, moving, creative, artistic, unique record of your day.....she and her husband Andy are the team for you!
