Perfect Photographers

Tali and Bri were incredible. They are extremely talented and are able to capture the pure essence of the moment in their photos and not to mention their play with lighting makes for some gorgeous shots. They captured precious moments between us, our friends and family during a very busy wedding day we otherwise wouldn't have seen. We cherish these memories and look forward to hiring them for other sessions in the future! Highly recommend hiring them for your wedding, they were wonderful to be around all day and made us feel so comfortable while they were capturing intimate moments. I appreciate their professionalism and kindness I am still obsessing over the photos they took!

Beautiful photography with big hearts

This review is waaaay overdue. I could write an essay about how much I love Talia but I'll try to keep it brief. When I started looking for a photographer, her portfolio really stood out because her photos told a story. I wanted to look back at the photos and remember what it felt like to be at the wedding. From the moment we booked Talia, she was always communicative during the planning process. Whenever I had questions, she was quick to respond and even met us at the venue to scope out potential areas that would be good for photos. On the day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch. Talia and Claire were incredible and really helped keep the vibe of the day happy and cheerful. They were so organized and made sure we were at each location on time and that we took the photos we had planned. On top of all that, they both were really loving people and spent time to make sure we were doing okay. I really appreciated how much they cared for us and worked hard to make sure our wedding was special. After the wedding, Talia sent us a collection of highlight photos while we were on our honeymoon and they were so fun to look at while drinking cocktails in Costa Rica. The rest of the photos were sent in a timely manner and were absolutely beautiful; they were above and beyond what I had expected. I cannot recommend Sister B Studios enough and really hope to use them again in the future.

If I could give 100 stars, I would!!

I am obsessed with Sister B Studios! Talia and Claire were amazing to work with! Wedding planning can be super stressful, but they made communication so easy and simple, and made shooting our engagement and wedding photos fun! They always came prepared, helped us figure out what shots would be great based on our venue, and went above and beyond in every way! I will be recommending them to anyone and everyone!
