I recently got married and we had Mollie photograph our wedding. Mollie is an incredibly gifted and talented photographer! Luckily, there is an attachment section below where I can add photos to this review, because I cannot describe in words how gorgeous these photos are. A wedding is one of the most special days anyone will have, and the photos are always going to an important part of that day. She really captured the essence of our wedding. The pictures are so rich, colorful, creative and timeless. I'm normally uncomfortable in front of the camera and was nervous about the "first look" photos, but she made it feel so natural. There wasn't any awkwardness with any of the poses, and she captured these amazing candid moments and sweet memories that we will cherish forever. She was such a pleasure to work with and is so professional and responsive. She also takes the time to understand your style and family dynamic to make sure everything runs smoothly the day of. I highly recommend hiring Mollie as your photographer for any of your events. You'll truly feel like you're reliving your special day just by looking at your photos again, and you can't put a price on that feeling.Sent on 09/24/2018

We knew the lighting at our outdoor venue in Los Olivos was special so finding a photographer that is capable of capturing that beautiful golden California light in all its glory was challenging for us. We looked at a lot of portfolios, but Mollie’s stood out to us right away. Her price was very reasonable and after we met with her in person to discuss the vibe of our wedding, we knew she was up to the task.Sent on 11/19/2017
Mollie was punctual and a pleasure to have around throughout the wedding day. Since the venue is fairly spread out, she recommended and arranged to bring a second shooter along to help capture some details as well as my wife and I getting ready. We had a lot of combinations when it came to wedding party and family portraits, but Mollie captured all of them quickly so we were able to spend more time enjoying the cocktail hour and reception with friends and family. She would give advice as needed as to how to tweak our poses of facial expressions but struck a pleasing balance between letting us figure it out for ourselves and controlling our every move. This left us feeling relaxed and natural, and it shows in the photos.
The week following the wedding, Mollie sent us a teaser photo set. It was such a nice treat to get while on our honeymoon. The rest of the photos were delivered in a timely fashion and we’ve been thrilled with all of them. All the little details of the day, from the florals to the food to the decorations, were all captured with as much care and attention as our wedding portraits. We opted to not hire a videographer so it’s nice to have such a beautiful catalog of the entire evening.
We’ll definitely recommend Mollie to our friends and family in the future.

Mollie is amazing! She was punctual, helpful, flexible and very very easy to work with. She even helped me tie the bow on my sash when I changed to a ribbon at the last minute and all my bridesmaids were scratching their heads. The images she captured were absolutely amazing. We were rubbing our eyes to make sure that was us in the pictures because they were so beautiful! The posed pictures were great but she also captured so many amazing candid moments, and the happiness and emotion we felt on that day are truly captured in her work. The photos are going to keep our memories of that day sharp and have been perfect to share with folks who weren't there. The lighting and artistry of the images are incredibly natural but magical at the same time.Sent on 03/12/2016
Mollie Crutcher Photography's reply:Aww Adria! Thank you so much!! Your whole day was stunning but that ceremony absolute perfection! I am so thankful to have had you as my bride and subject and so happy for you and Nik. Congratulations again! xo
We worked with Mollie at a beautiful Santa Ynez Ranch for a wedding last year and her photography is absolutely stunning. She's professional and captures the rare and special moments spectacularly.
What an Amazing Wedding Photographer!
