Opal was great!

Paul and I recently enjoyed working with Opal of Sweetbay Photography for our August 5 wedding, and I am pleased with the outcome.
Opal's dedication, talent, and professionalism shone through, leaving us with priceless memories we will cherish as long as we live. Her ability to capture the essence of our wedding day was truly remarkable. She beautifully captured every emotion, detail, and fleeting moment, transforming them into timeless images. Opal's keen sense of timing and composition ensured that no precious memory was missed, whether it was the joyous laughter, heartfelt exchanges, or tender moments shared between loved ones. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and hard work were evident throughout the entire process. When we received our wedding photos, we were absolutely blown away! The quality of the images was exceptional, with vibrant colors and a perfect balance of light and shadow. Entrusting our wedding photography to Opal of Sweetbay Photography was one of our best decisions. I highly recommend considering her services!

Phenomenal - Will Use Again!!!

Opal is amazing! She photographed my husband and I’s wedding back in August and did a fantastic job. As soon as we met her we loved her energy and obvious experience. She also photographed our engagement photos which were beautiful even though the weather wasn’t very cooperative. Her experience and knowledge made us have one less thing to worry about because we knew she would get everything done. Opal was also great handling our large families and guest count. Our pictures are fantastic and I am forever grateful for her amazing work and passion for what she does. We will definitely be hiring her again for future photo ops. Thank you Opal!!!
