She's the greatest!
Renae was such a pleasure having a part of our wedding day and for our engagement photos – I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Not only is she amazing at taking beautiful photos, but she perfectly captures all the little moments of people and things going on that make your day so special but you may miss while you're in it. I have some of the most beautiful pictures of the small details of my wedding day and I’m so glad to have them included in our album. She was also so kind to check in throughout the day to see if I needed a water or snack or anything – she was a great extra bridesmaid :) She has such a positive, easygoing and calm vibe to her which is so great to have around you on what can be a hectic day. Another great thing is she’ll send you a handful of photos just a couple days after your wedding, which is so fun to look through while on your honeymoon and reminisce of the great day. I can’t think of anything to make my experience working with her any better and I would recommend her to any of my friends!Sent on 01/19/2020

She went above & beyond our expectations!
Wow, where do I even begin. Josh and I got married on 10/5/2019 and for some reason we waited until the last minute to hire a photographer. I truly thought that I wasn't going to be able to find a good one that wasn't already booked. As I was browsing through local photographers on wedding wire, I came across Renae and fell in love with her work. I sent her a message and she responded immediately saying she was available so we booked it! We only had a month until the wedding, and she was really helpful during the few weeks prior. On the wedding day she showed up early and was super professional the whole time. She was interactive with everyone and was just the sweetest person ever! We only hired her for 5 hours (because of our budget limit) but she stayed about 45 minutes extra to get in the cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss, and the speeches. She went above & beyond our expectations and I highly highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! Our sneak peak photos were absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see the rest!! Thank you so much Renae!Sent on 11/09/2019

Renae is Perfection!
Renae is much more than just a talented and brilliantly skilled photographer. She is generous with her time and has a passion for what she does. She truly captured our special day! Her passion for people and photography truly shows in her work. I am not a huge fan of taking photos of myself, but the results were stunning. She captured the exact essence of what we were looking for; turning us and our wedding into, and making us feel like one of those weddings you see only in catalogs. In the search for the perfect wedding photographer, I stumbled across Renae’s page and I absolutely fell in love with her photography style. It is soft, bright & airy, it was exactly what we were looking for. It is perfect, but that’s exactly how I would describe Renae, she is an absolute perfection! We only communicated via email, due to my busy schedule, but we felt so confident and trusted her right off the start. She is very responsive and it worked so well with our busy lifestyle! We were so confident in fact, that we actually first met her at our wedding! Sounds crazy, but she made us feel so comfortable and started taking detailed shots the minute she walked into our venue. The results were stunning! Her attention to detail, professionalism, organization and super fun personality eased our nerves and made us feeling confident and comfortable when taking photos. She took every detailed shot you can imagine and worked so well with our other vendors. She took a huge weight off our shoulders. Words can’t begin to describe how incredible she is. You can just see it in her work! We can’t thank you enough Renae, for not only capturing our special day but being such a huge part of it! Our family won’t stop talking about our wedding photos!Sent on 07/19/2019
