    Someone you can trust!

    This will be a long one! I cannot even begin to express how happy we were that we could secure Pam as our photographer. We never even met in person until our engagement session, and let me tell you…the second we stepped out of the car it felt like we were visiting an old family friend that we’d known our whole lives. We were immediately greeted with hugs and compliments, and before we could blink, we were shooting. We weren’t posed, we weren’t uncomfortable…we were just there, being ourselves, and Pam was a fly on the wall capturing the whole thing. And the photos were amazing. Fast forward six months down the road, and Pam asks us to fill out a questionnaire about our wedding day, including a timeline of how we want everything to go. We did that, and she sent back her suggestions based on her years of experience covering weddings, and we didn’t hesitate whatsoever to follow those suggestions and run the day based on her timeline. And everything happened SO effortlessly and smoothly. And talk about a FLY ON THE WALL! When we did our first look, Pam was standing in front of me as I broke down in tears BEFORE even seeing my bride. But I didn't even realize she was there, and it made for some raw, emotional photos that help to capture the day. I am so happy that we have those photos to look back on, and so glad we hired someone that made me feel comfortable enough to show my truest emotions in front of a camera. And when we got our preview album back (over 100 photos and just 10 days after the wedding), we weren't just in awe at the rich, timeless colors and incredible detail in our photos, but we were amazed at all of the things she captured when we didn’t even know she was there. There were so many photos that made us say “how did she get that??” To say we were impressed would be an understatement. Perhaps, though, the best part about hiring Pam is that she’s someone you can trust. You’re investing money into wedding photography, so it’s important to hire someone who really knows what they’re doing, and Pam does! We didn’t have to stress about our schedule delays or worry that not everything will be captured, because we knew Pam had it all under control. She’s been in the business for a long time and really knows the best ways to do things, so trust her and listen to her because she knows her stuff! You will not regret hiring Pam Cooley for your wedding!

    Pam is the best!

    Pam is truly a one of a kind person and photographer. Her past work speaks for itself as all of her photos are stunning.
    Her ability to connect with people through email is impressive and even more strong in person. When we first met her for our engagement shoot the second we stepped out of the car it felt as though we’ve known her our whole lives. Pam made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and is a blast to work with.
    She was so helpful in providing outfit suggestions for our engagement shoot as well as our day after wedding shoot and created a timeline for our wedding that made everything run so smoothly. Pam traveled to our destination wedding in the smokies and had excellent ideas of where to shoot different photos. My wedding party had so much fun working with her as well. We couldn’t imagine our wedding experience without Pam. We love you Pam!
