Unforgettable Wedding Experience with Tori
If you are a bride, groom, mother or father of bride/groom - look NO FURTHER!! Victoria (aka Tori) is your absolute dream photographer-to-be; she will take care of all of your wedding photo needs, including engagement, pre-wedding, rehearsal dinner, tasteful boudoir, and actual wedding day photos.Sent on 06/28/2019
My now-husband and I live in Houston and got engaged in January 2018; we knew we wanted our wedding to be in Washington, DC in June 2019. That being said, it was going to be a difficult challenge to find all of our vendors who are not local to craft our most special day. The first vendor we looked for was our photographer, as I’ve always heard the best ones sometimes book out more than a year in advance. I stumbled upon Tori through some coworkers and mutual friends who had used her for their own engagement / lifestyle / wedding shoots and was immediately dumbfounded by how comfortable all of my different friends looked behind the lense. As someone who’s rarely been photographed professionally, my main concern was looking too forced, thereby unnatural, in any photos I was going to cherish forever; Tori’s eye behind the lense captures each moment so perfectly poised yet candid that the look in each photo is both effortless and flawless.
After a quick phone chat with her introducing ourselves, we immediately booked Tori. She was charismatic, polite, joyful, and professional. She ensured us that we were in good hands and walked us through the rough timeline of how everything becomes developed leading up to the big day. Honestly, we didn’t really interact a lot with Tori until about a couple months out from the wedding because there was really no need; she crafted an entire timeline of our wedding weekend photography needs and asked for feedback. We were floored by how much detail her timeline went into; every minute of each hour is allocated and she encouraged us to pass along the timeline to our other vendors, family and bridal party so we can all be on the same page.
On the wedding weekend, she made an effort to arrive early to venues (even before us) to scout out perfect photo spots. She met our families and friends - which is very important - as they instantly became more comfortable with her. She stuck to her schedule but was lenient when things went longer than expected, not losing her cool and ensuring none of us even noticed anything - all while making up for lost time by being more efficient with other things in the background. She helped identify areas that had good vs. bad lighting so our large wedding party of 22 could be efficient with posing for beautiful group photos and not wasting our precious time of an already quick day.
At the actual reception, she somehow stayed out of everyone’s way but was also somehow in the middle of everything to make sure each moment was captured. I don’t know how she does it. She listened to our speeches that made guests cry, while also staying professional to her craft and doing her duty to capture those moments and emotions. She danced with us (yes, WITH) because she knows how to enjoy a good time. She felt like a guest at our wedding who was there to celebrate love and family, not a vendor who was doing their job to collect a check.
Although lengthy, I hope this review is honest and fair. We loved having Tori throughout our whole engagement and through our wedding weekend. She and her assistants perfectly blended in and helped us capture the most beautiful weekend of our lives, and for that, we are forever grateful. I hope everyone has as much of a beautiful and fun weekend as we did, and I KNOW Tori is someone who can help bring that to life.

The BEST Wedding Photographer!
Hire Tori. From beginning to end she is an absolute gem to work with. She is professional yet so much fun and her attention to detail and the care she puts in to every meeting and session is out of this world. She made my wedding day absolutely flawless, despite the rain, wind, hail (!) and then beautiful sunset, we managed to get every single photo I wanted + a million more. The feedback I received from my vendors and wedding guests was overwhelmingly positive. They all had something great to say about Tori. She captured every single moment beautifully and authentically. My husband and I are eternally grateful to Tori and her team. We couldn't be happier!Sent on 09/17/2019

We loved working with Tori!
We got married at The Green Building (Brooklyn) in April 2019. We worked directly with Tori after seeing a friend’s wedding photos and being completely blown away with them! Tori was the BEST to work with, we can’t recommend her enough! She was very professional, responsive at emails and was overall very friendly and easy to work with. From our initial FaceTime call with her throughout the entire process, we really hit it off and felt comfortable in front of the camera with her shooting. We really felt like she wanted to get to know us so she could capture truly special photos, not just in and out for the wedding. Tori traveled in from Washington DC to New York for our wedding and arrived a full day before to location scout, get familiar with the venue and the neighborhood, and also met all of the bridal party and immediate family at our welcome reception which was a HUGE help, it made everything go so smoothly on the wedding day. In everything she did, she went above and beyond expectations and also her “contractural” responsibilities. We were living in Europe most of our time while we were planning the wedding, we were lucky enough to be able to link up with Tori while she was in Paris to do our engagement pictures and they were INCREDIBLE! We were so comfortable with Tori on our wedding day, having spent a weekend with her shooting in Paris, it made a huge difference and we were so relaxed around her. As a person, we seriously want to be best friends with Tori!!!! She is such a delight and is great to be around, we already miss working with her! Tori’s second shooter that night, Joi, was also a pleasure to work with! We loved working with Tori, we highly recommend working with her!Sent on 04/30/2019
