Auey was our amazing photographer for our wedding. She knew exactly when to get involved and when to let the moments play out, but most importantly, her and her team's photos came out so fantastically, the love between my husband and I was truly palpable. We spared no expense on our big day and we feel so lucky that it was all expertly captured. In addition, she is very organized and responsive during the planning process which is so vital when you are orchestrating the biggest party of your life. Even our family & friends all have commented how beautiful our pictures came out. Bravo to Photograffiti!

Auey was fantastic! We hired her for an engagement photo shoot and for our wedding day.
She is super nice, easy to work with, great with suggestions and really has a great eye for composing shots.
We even did a walk-through a few days before the wedding so she would know exactly where she wanted to take our first look shots as well as the rest of the wedding day photos.

What can I say about Auey? She is fabulous! She was not only great with offering her photography services, but she was so helpful in recommending other wedding vendors like make-up artist, event planner, etc. We had interviewed other photographers, but instantly clicked with Auey. She understood that we were a specific type of couple that was very opinionated about what we liked and what we weren't looking for. She understood our needs which was key because these pictures are going to last a lifetime. Auey was very responsive and attentive to our questions and spent a lot of time learning about us as a couple and hearing our love story to be able to capture these special moments. I think it's important for a photographer to know his/her couple. We got a great deal hiring Auey to handle our engagement shoot as well as our wedding day. We had a great time with her Beloved Engagement session. I highly recommend Auey because she truly cares about her customers and the quality of photos we got were fantastic. I couldn't be happier. I definitely plan on recommending her to everyone I know and may even tap her in the future to take some family photos! You can't go wrong with Auey! Thank you for your hard work!
Auey is personable, fun, witty and absolutely passionate about giving the best of herself to life, art, and her clients. After working with Auey at several wedding/portrait shoots, and listening to her speech regarding using "beloved" approach to photograph people, I can not help but feel lucky to have known this person - so truthful and inspirational. Auey is a photographer who not just SEEs you with an eye and a camera, but with her heart. She has deep appreciation of the beauty of genuine human connections - That is what makes her works special and moving. A photo session with Auey will make you feel more alive and more LOVED. You'll have to experience it yourself!
Auey is one of the most enjoyable people you'll ever meet! She's full of bubbly energy that brings something extra special to a bride & groom's day. When looking for a photographer you should look at their work (obviously, right?), their personality and how well they work with others. Auey has got it all! She is such a breeze to work with and truly understands that a group of vendors for a wedding is team, and she's there to help! Add to the equation work that is artistic, fun, gorgeous and you've got a winner. Can't recommend her high enough!
