Absolutely a dream!!
We have only had our engagement pictures done, so far. We are booking them for our wedding and can not wait! They were so amazing at making sure we were comfortable in front of the camera, it was as if we were out with family and friends. They even suggested doing a save the date picture, which we loved and helped check another thing off our list. We can't wait to work with them again on our wedding day. We are meeting with them a couple times before the big day, so we have everything ready to go. They want everything to be perfect for us and as stress free as possible. We are, so grateful, we found them!Sent on 02/12/2019
