April is truly passionate about photography, and this shows with her commitment capturing every moment on your wedding day, being incredibly open and communicative about the process, and being timely and professional at all times. The quality of her work ethic shows in her photos. She was a breeze to work with, and her beautiful photos speak for themselves. People are still talking about my wedding photos! I would use her again and again and will continue to recommend her!Sent on 07/10/2017

April photographed our family of five this winter and we couldn't be happier! April was very sweet and amazing with the kids! We could tell that she truly loves her job and the impact she has on others. The image delivery was online, it was very simple and high quality. The thing we love the most about April is that she was able to capture each of our children's personalities in the images! Thanks again for everything April!!Sent on 12/27/2016

April Maura is hands down one of the best photographers in the AZ valley. As a professional in the wedding industry, I have witnessed her work with couples on various occasions and am continuously impressed by her positive attitude, attention to detail and consideration of those around her. I have also had the opportunity to be on the other side of April's camera for a recent holiday photo shoot. I brought along my five-month old puppy and April was so flexible and easy-going even though we were dealing with an overly excited dog! I highly recommend April to any couple seeking a photographer for their event.Sent on 12/10/2016

April is the sweetest most thoughtful person you will ever meet and work with! She has so much passion and love for what she does and it is showcased every time you speak to her! She was easily reached and responded quickly. And she is so organized!!! Having her so organized took so much stress off of me (the bride) that I was able to relax more and enjoy the planning process. Her pictures are amazing! She finds the best lighting and each pictures come out flawless! She also talks to you and has you and your significant other do interactive commutation exercises to create a more natural comfortable environment when she takes pictures. She was everything I could ever ask for and more in a wedding photographer! She's the best! Book her before she fills up!Sent on 12/08/2016

My husband and I usually hate taking pictures, but April made it a super fun, easy, and romantic experience for us. We really enjoyed how she would set up each photo by asking us to think about a special moment or feeling we had for one another. It made the emotions in the pictures real, not forced, especially for people who don't like being in front of the lens.Sent on 10/07/2016

April Maura captured the most amazing memories for our 10 year vow renewal and was someone I would trust with such an important day again.Sent on 10/10/2016
In the months leading up to the big day, April worked closely with us via email and FaceTime since we don't live in AZ, and she was thorough in understanding our vision and priorities. The day of our vow renewal she blew us away with her preparation and attentiveness. She was patient with last minute requests and was quick to make adjustments to capture the best memories.
April is incredibly talented, professional, fun and made our day even that much more special. Thank you, April!

Annie · Married on 07/06/2016
It was truly a delight working with April! My husband and I have never had professional pictures taken of us so it was a new experience. Being a woman and having this deep desire to always feel pretty and contrarily to that desire always feeling a bit awkward in my self, April was able to encourage me throughout the shoot to smile and have fun. I no longer felt nervous with her easy encouragement and clear direction. I have never felt more free to be me while in front of a camera. When I saw the pictures myself I squealed in delight, loving how they turned out. They were everything I could have hoped for and best of all, I still looked like myself! I was perfectly beautiful in my own skin! No weird lighting effects to contour my face into something inhuman and not me. I was so thankful for all the hard work that April put into our shoot and the edit of the pictures. She was perfectly professional while reminding my husband and I why we got married in the first place. It was more than just a photo shoot, it was a time to celebrate our relationship and April made that possible!!!Sent on 07/30/2016

April is extremely responsive and professional, which is great when it comes to a photographer. Many photographers I've worked with tend to be flakey and take a long to get back, but April blows that stereotype out of the water. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable taking pictures as she coached us in natural poses and we had fun in the process. April is so encouraging and positive, and I am so impressed with our finished results!Sent on 07/28/2016

Lydia · Married on 06/04/2016
April was incredibly precise and professional about the entire day. She made sure we were on schedule with photographs. I loved working with April, because she was SO organized for the day! I was the type of bride who needed other people to help out with the actual planning of the wedding day, and April had a timeline for the day already made for me! When we met to discuss the wedding day, we played around with the timeline so it fit exactly what I wanted.Sent on 07/13/2016
April Maura Photography's reply:Wow, thank you so much Lydia! My second photographer and I had a terrific time and felt really welcomed by your family and friends. Thank you Todd and Lydia for choosing me as your wedding photographer and for you kind words. Please stay in touch!

Allison · Married on 04/02/2016
April was the an absolute joy to work with which can be rare in dealing with wedding vendors. The exceptional quality of her work coupled with her ease to work with and genuine care for us as a couple made working with her not only stress-free but enjoyable. April turned around the finished product very quickly and kept us updated along the way. A wonderful touch was her "sneak peak" blog post that she made detailing the wedding and including some pictures we were able to enjoy on our honeymoon. You'll be very pleased if you let April capture your special day.Sent on 06/26/2016
April Maura Photography's reply:Wow, so amazing Allison!! Your wedding day was incredible and an honor to witness all those once-and-a-lifetime moments!!!

Justin and you were an absolute dream to work with, thank you for your unbelievably kind words!!!

Secret Garden Event Center has gotten to work with April at a wedding she photographed in March and a style shoot she did here in July! She has a heart filled with pure sweetness and an unbelievable talent! Her pictures are breath taking and ones we love to show off! We highly recommend her and her services!Sent on 08/05/2016
Samantha · Married on 03/26/2016
I am SO glad that I chose April as our photographer for engagement photos. My fiance and I traveled from Orange County to Tempe, AZ for our photo session so that we could take the photos on the ASU Campus where we met. The search for photographers was overwhelming and the list was long! I emailed many photographers whose prices were too high or they simply didn't respond. I finally came across April and was instantly drawn to the soft, simple beauty of her photos. She responded quickly and her prices were great!Sent on 07/31/2015
April took the time to speak to me on the photo, text, and over email several times before our photo session. She got to know my fiance and I through a thorough questionnaire that was so fun to fill out. She even customized our photo package to best meet our specific requests and vision for our photos.
On the day of the shoot, April arrived early and was already BEYOND prepared with many ideas for our photos. She helped us get comfortable in front of the camera quickly and seamlessly! I was shocked at how quickly she helped us loosen up and have a great time! Throughout the shoot she incorporated our opinions and ideas while also including her own creative vision. The result was a wide range of beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. She went ABOVE AND BEYOND to incorporate every photo that we wanted as well as the plethora of ideas and inspiration that she had. It was a GREAT experience and I feel like April really captured US through her lens.
We received our photos much earlier than expected. Every single one turned out beautifully. I am SO thrilled that I chose April to photograph our engagements. BOOK WITH HER! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
Kayla · Married on 03/26/2016
Working with April was such a lovely experience! She is so wonderful at what she does and definitely knows how to get the job done! I am one of those people who is generally uncomfortable in front of the camera and one of my biggest worries after getting engaged was having to take engagement photos! April has the sweetest demeanor but can command and guide you so smoothly with posing and she makes it so easy! Her cheerful comments and encouraging words while she is taking photos adds a lightness to the air and makes the process enjoyable and natural. April was amazing at always finding the perfect spot with the perfect natural light for the most "epic" shots :)Sent on 04/24/2016
Her communication is always done in a timely manner and she is always so helpful with any questions you may have. She sets you up with a detailed timeline for your wedding day so you know exactly what photos will be taken at what time and where everyone needs to be. Her organization leaves you with no question marks and she's always willing to adjust where need be to accommodate your day! My husband and I, as well as our families, are beyond thrilled and blown away with the photos that we have to share with family and friends for a lifetime. I have truly never felt more comfortable in front of the camera and I believe that it comes across in the photos because of the peaceful atmosphere that April creates. I couldn't be more thankful for this experience.
April Maura Photography's reply:Oh my goodness Kayla...you are so sweet! This review means so much to me!
