    Outstanding Photographer

    I would rate Sonya 10 stars because she is the most amazing photographer. Sonya certainly has an artistic eye and completely captured the love that my husband and I have for each other better than we ever could have imagined. Her rates are extremely reasonable and she really takes time to get to know her couples. We hired her for both our engagement shoot as well as our wedding and we are so happy with the photos that we have.

    Great experience

    We absolutely loved working with Sonya as our engagement and wedding photographer. She took gorgeous pictures and was a very friendly, calming presence who made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Given that our wedding was outside in a heat wave, this is no small feat! Highly recommend.

    Sonya Yruel Photography's reply:

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback, Jenelle! It was so nice to get to know you both and document your joyful wedding!

    Wonderful photographer!

    Working with Sonya was fantastic from beginning to end. Everything from the initial meeting through engagement shoot and actual wedding was well communicated. She did a great job of putting us at ease with the camera (no easy feat) and the pics so far have been wonderful. Definitely would recommend.

    It was wonderful working with you two, and such a fantastic wedding to photograph. Thank you so much for sharing your feedback!
