Personable photographer = amazing session
Miranda took our engagement photos in San Diego. I live in another state so she took the effort to scope out the location I was interested in, found several sites for our engagement photo shoot, and made key suggestions to make my surprise proposal a success! She takes beautiful, natural lifestyle/portrait photography and uses natural lighting very well. The best part was, she’s very personable and made us feel comfortable. It made the shoot fun and special!Sent on 07/06/2019

Miranda did our engagement shoot and I can’t thank her enough for the gorgeous photos. Each picture captured the feelings of that moment and it warms my heart to look through them. Miranda has such an eye for lighting and great back drops. But the best part is her love for capturing the couple as they are versus posing them. She’s like a fly on the wall- there to capture your silliness, laughter, joy, and excitement as you spend time together.
Miranda will be shooting our wedding photos in November and I can’t wait to see how they turn out!!Sent on 05/27/2021

TKP Photography - amazing photos & easy to work with!
Miranda was a joy to work with. She captured sweet moments that I didn't even notice until I saw the photos afterwards as well as more traditional family shots without making them feel too starched and posed. Miranda has a way of making you feel comfortable in your own skin - whether she's working with someone who is typically shy and doesn't like being in front of the camera or a little kid who is super cute but who can't sit still for one second. Working with Miranda to plan ahead of time was easy and she was very professional by telling us exactly what we could expect from her but also being willing to go with the flow to meet our needs and to come up with a spur of the moment shots to capture the mood. We were delighted with our experience with Miranda, as was everyone else who interacted with her. I highly recommend using her for your engagement, wedding, or anything in-between!Sent on 04/29/2020
