We haven't even seen all of our pictures yet, just a few they sent us as a sneak peak, and holy cow!.... STUNNING!!!! Words cannot begin to describe how amazing our photos are! Our main photographers was Jorelle, and I am so glad TWA helped pair him with us. His work is impeccable and beautiful. He truly has an eye for what is a great shot. Dan was our photo journalist and he was also fantastic! He got some truly lovey shots. We are so thrilled that our expectations have been exceeded! We can't wait to see the rest of them! I feel for the amount of time we had each photographer & the videographer, we paid an appropriate amount of money, and feel we definitely got our money's worth. The staff were all very friendly from the beginning. All my emails were responded to quickly & every question was answered thoroughly. We will both be recommending TWA to everyone! We get to have our picture taken every year with them at no cost, too! Pretty great company!

TWA was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end! They went above and beyond in quality and we really enjoyed the fact that we were able to meet and choose our photographer. Laura and Rex made the process so comfortable, which is so important on your wedding day when many things can be hectic. Beyond satisfied with the quality of our pictures and video! TWA captures our day perfectly and now we have memories to last a lifetime. Thanks so much!

Our wedding photographers were great! They were easy to communicate with/get ahold of prior to our wedding date. Our lead photographer sat down with us prior to our wedding and asked very detailed questions to make sure we got all the photos we wanted. She was very flexible the day of and took some amazing photos! I would highly recommend TWA!

I could not have picked a better company to have photographed our big day! From the general meeting, the wedding, and viewing meeting, every single person has been so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We were paired with Heather and she was amazing with us. We needed some help in the posing department and she was so great with helping us and the photos turned out better than I expected. Everyone from the wedding raved about how great she was with them. She thought of things I didn't and helped create magic for us!

Timothy Whaley Photographic Artists has been nothing but exceptional throughout our entire engagement and wedding experience. TWA was our photographer for both engagement session and wedding day, and we booked them for video services! From meeting with them in the beginning, to planning our special day and making all of our wants happen they have been truly phenomenal. I could not imagine going with any other photographer as I felt like part of the TWA family and like their only goal was to make us the happiest couple ever! Do not let the pricing scare you off during your initial meeting because the price you pay is for quality, service, timeliness, etc. They also offer very reasonable payment plans if you give yourself enough time! I did not have to worry about organizing or planning anything with TWA and that made my wedding planning that much more enjoyable! We are now able to choose our images for our forever-wedding album (which is guaranteed for LIFE no matter WHAT), and it really solidifies the investment we made and we would not change it for the world. Thank you again to everyone with TWA who helped us and is still helping us figure out our album and wall art! You all are THE BEST! Sincerely, the Heislers

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, negotiate, and speak up to explain what you want. I initially met with Bill Jaeger and he handled negotiations and contract terms. If you are getting thank you cards or save the dates as part of your contract, specify what kind of printing material since some are not good for writing on the back. Amanda Nawojski was my contact throughout. She was fantastic and very responsive. Mikhail was our photographer. Don’t be afraid to send samples of what you are looking for. I sent him a ton of stuff from Pinterest and he nailed the style I wanted. Don’t expect people to read your mind. Amy Solar handled the album purchase. You might want to consider upgrading to a more expensive album if you find yourself adding a lot of extras to a more basic album option.

I have personally had the pleasure of doing makeup at a wedding that TWA Photo was photographing and we had such a blast together. The bride's photographer, Jorge, had a wonderful personality, was very professional, and took absolutely beautiful photos. I would definitely recommend TWA Photo to anyone looking for perfect photos of their next event.

We have worked with Timothy Whaley Photographic Artists (TWA) for many years and truly feel like an old married couple where we can finish each others sentences! TWA knows what they are talking about! TWA strives to make sure they know what each Bride is looking to capture on their special day and then goes above and beyond. There is no hesitation when booking with TWA as they will not disappoint! Great staff, get customer service, to an overall great product for each and every thousands of weddings they capture per year!

Always a pleasure to work with Timothy Whaley.

OMG!! This is the place to have your wedding photography done. They are very easy to work with and all their photographer's are wonderful. You can count on them and have no worries on your special day. They make you feel welcome,comfortable and listen to your needs. I would highly recommend them!!
