Meredith was recommended by a friend of a friend that had previously used her services for their wedding. Meredith was upbeat and spunky and accommodative to our requests. After viewing her gallery on line, talking with a handful of other photographers and a few conversations with Meredith we decided to move forward. Being Meredith had never shot at our venue we met her at the Kimpton Gray and did a walk through to show her the space, which I highly recommend that your photographer becomes familiar with the wedding venue. Note…this was not part of the package so there was a small nominal charge for this meeting. The purpose was to check out unique areas for photos, where to do your first look, see where the reception and ceremony will take place and also check out the lighting. It is not a decision you take lightly because this is one of your most important vendors. You can only hope they capture some of the magic on your special day. We did a 10-hour day of package, so Meredith arrived at 1pm and was gone a t 11 pm. She was able to capture both the bride and groom getting ready, our first look on and off property, family photos prior to the ceremony and then of course, the ceremony and reception. Highly recommend doing photos ahead of the ceremony so that you do not keep your guests waiting and you get to pop in on the cocktail portion after the ceremony. What impressed us about Meredith is that you never saw her but she worked the room stealthily throughout the night and captured some great moments. We received our online gallery with 30 days of our wedding which was way sooner than we anticipated. While not every picture is perfect you cannot expect that ...we were hoping for 50 or so great pics and we absolutely were not disappointed. Meredith knows what she is doing, and we give her glowing recommendations. Looking forward to getting a few prints and hanging them on the wall and providing to family.Sent on 10/12/2019

Like most brides in the day of the wedding I was a nervous wreck. Meredith’s relaxed personality and high level of professionalism kept me cool.
Meredith was kind, on time and really captured the types of photos we wanted most. I wasn’t looking for a series of staged photos. Meredith was able to capture the fun, love and playfulness of my husband and I and our wedding PartySent on 07/18/2019

Meredith was so amazing to work with and gave us such beautiful pictures from our engagement session. We are both goofballs who don't love taking pictures, but she somehow turned our engagement session into such a fun experience which really showed in the pictures.Sent on 09/03/2018
