When we first started looking at photographers, especially within our price range, we weren't blown away by any of the photos or their portfolios. They were all serviceable, but we didn't really fall in love with any of them until we saw Rebecca's work! There was so much emotion and joy that was captured in her photos that we immediately thought she was the one we wanted to go with. When we met with her, she immediately made us feel comfortable and we ultimately felt like she would be the perfect match for us. Plus, she loved dogs!!!Sent on 08/28/2018
We had our engagement shoot with her and we were a little nervous at first, but she helped to pose us and we finally loosened up and had some fun. We got a ton of great engagement photos all around downtown Troy. She even waded through some deep snow to get a few shots. That's dedication right there!
On our wedding day, she took a bunch of portraits of us and our family, but also was flexible enough to go to the roof of the building with us to take some gorgeous pics. She also got some great sunset shots and really helped to capture a bunch of great moments at the wedding. Can't wait to see them all!!
Rebecca was so sweet, so easy-gong, and just so fun to have around that day. We were so happy with our decision!

Rebecca is amazing! She shot our engagement photos and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We're both pretty camera-shy, but Rebecca immediately put us at ease. She knew exactly how to pose us, where to get the best light and backdrop, and how to make us smile naturally. She even brought props! Rebecca's creative eye, comfortable demeanor, professionalism, and easygoing attitude make her a wonderful photographer. She edited the photos quickly and even fixed the bug bites, acne marks, and scars we were self-conscious about. Rebecca is truly the best, and I can't wait to recommend her to everyone I know.
