The PERFECT Photographer
Linda was everything I needed during the wedding planning process! I met her through friends who used her for their wedding and I am so grateful to them for that! She is not only a talented photographer, she is an INCREDIBLE person. We were so stressed/nervous/excited and she was there willing to help in any way she could. She had our backs, she went the extra mile, and she wasn't afraid to join in on the fun! I don't know what we would have done without her, honestly, she made our day. Every time we turned around she was there, recording every memory. Looking through our wedding photos brings tears to my eyes, every picture is so special! I can't wait to use her again for all of our future photo needs. Sometimes I just want to send her an email to see how she's doing, and I'm sad now that we won't see her again for a while. Use Linda for everything! You won't regret it! She was the best wedding decision we made, and she made us feel more loved than our actual wedding planner!Sent on 01/09/2020

Wonderful, Low-key, high quality
Linda is such a wonderful company. I have some bossy people in my family and I was worried that they would try to take over the wedding.Linda was able to direct them all with grace and confidence. Not only did she manage everyone well, but she kept me, the bride, from panicking. The pictures she took were fabulous. I hate the standard photographs, but she managed to capture the fun that we had at our wedding. The natural smiles and the love that our family had for us and each other. She gave us a USB with all our photos and a book. We love these photos to this day, a year and a half latter, and constantly smile when we see them. Linda is the best and low key person who produces quality photographs for every occasion. A fun thing that I discovered after the wedding, was that Linda had taken the photos for two other weddings I knew about. Small world, but not surprising given how talented Linda is.Sent on 03/28/2020

Linda is amazing! She is so responsive to emails and texts and is willing to do whatever you need! We literally took her to West Virginia for our engagement photos and she was just as excited as we were and went above and beyond to get us amazing pictures! She met with us and always was able to put us at ease; she has a way to get you to laugh and be expressive with her conversations. For our wedding she offered to field what could have been awkward mother/step mother stuff even before getting into it. She then helped me to schedule the entire day and put me at ease ensuring that everyone else stayed on time! She also made sure I was drinking water. And that is just about Linda herself. The photography is stellar! She found the lightning each time, always tracked the sunset, and made sure to get our best angles. We have so many to choose from that I want to print them all! I also can’t stop looking at them; she captured all of the perfect moments.Sent on 12/10/2019

Linda is the absolute best!
This is incredibly late, my husband and I got married September 14, 2019, but I wanted to make sure I took the time to come back and write this review. Linda is the absolute best photographer we could have hoped for. Linda made sure to take the time to find out what were the most important things to us on our day and made sure those were top priority. My main stressor for the day was timing because I knew we had to be out of the venue relatively early & I wanted to dance as much as possible. Somehow Linda kept us not only on schedule, but AHEAD OF SCHEDULE and squeezed in more photos than I thought we had time for. I ended up with almost a whole extra hour of dance time because of her absolutely stunning time management skills. Not only that - our photos turned out PERFECT! It was important to my husband and I that our photos not just be all formal (those were important too) but we really cared about our photos showing our fun, silly and wild spirits. Our reception photos are so fun and truly show our personalities that each photo brings me right back to that day. Each photo has a memory to go along with it and honestly what more could you ask for. Linda also offers these amazing services for a reasonable and affordable price, making it possible for even people on a budget to have an exceptional photographer for their big day. Literally cannot say enough amazing things about Linda and Awesomesauce. Just hire her already!!Sent on 12/29/2019

Linda Spencer (Awesomesauce Photography) was the best choice I made
Meeting Linda Spencer: I met Linda at a wedding convention that was hosting a ton of vendors. I am a naturally shy and anxious person, so the idea of a photographer in general was hard for me. I was anxious about everything and met several photographers there that I didn't click with. And then I met Linda. Linda made me feel instantly at home and comfortable. She listened to my needs and I could tell she would be a good addition to our day. I had already decided to book her the moment I met her.Sent on 09/03/2019
During the wedding planning process: Linda was fantastic with communication. We met multiple times and she had everything. She also went above and beyond. She listened to me as I rambled on about the vision I had for the theme and logistics, but how I had no idea how to execute. The next day, she went above and beyond her photography duties, she had sent me emails with suggestions and ideas that we ended up using. The contract was straightforward and Linda was always honest with you. She gauged who I was and suggested the best photography package for us without trying to oversell.
On the wedding day: I think Linda was a major reason I got through the day. I was running on high anxiety. She kept making me laugh and kept me focused. She also reminded me to give myself some attention because I kept trying to focus on everybody else. My entire wedding party and family adored her. She was everywhere she needed to be and created other photo set ups that I would never have thought to ask for. She also endured ridiculous summer conditions to ensure she got the best pictures.
After the wedding: We were soon sent an online album of our photos and later sent an adorable box and card with a flash drive of our pictures. She had even snuck in a special treat for us by photoshopping one of our wedding party pictures with the theme we had (movies theme featuring King Kong & Godzilla... we're weird). It soon became our favorite picture and is now a canvas print in our home.
Overall: I loved Linda. She was the best decision I could have made for photography. She had the best personality, and delivered on the services we asked for. You cannot go wrong with choosing her.

Linda was so amazing! The photographer was one of the most important parts of our wedding to me. It was important to me to find somebody that really captured who we were, rather than somebody who took the same stock photos that you see from every other wedding. Linda, from awesomesauce photography, delivered that for us! Our engagement shoot was a relaxed day at the park with a couple beers. However, it was the hottest day of the year (or so it seemed 😂) and we were both sweating through our shirts completely. But when we got the photos back they were amazing! She managed to capture the best parts of the day without all the heat and sweat! Same goes for the wedding. It POURED almost the entire day, but she worked around it, got amazing pictures in indoor spots and shot our portraits during a short break in the rain. Despite the rush trying to beat the rain, our pictures capture exactly who we are as a couple and the candids capture our friends in their best lights. She even remembered a story from the day he first told me he loved me, and managed to recreate that picture for us! She went above and beyond for us and made our day more than perfect.Sent on 06/23/2019

"Awesomesauce" is right!
Linda was the best! I balled my eyes out looking at all the beautiful moments she was able to capture from our wedding day.
To start from the beginning, she is super knowledgeable about typical wedding timelines and is more than willing to help with that part of the planning process. She really cares about her clients and really wants to get to know you. We met with her both through FaceTime and in person.
On the actual wedding day, she was super punctual and professional. We knew exactly what to expect. How she managed to take such beauitiful pictures of our ceremony without us even realizing she was there still blows my mind. She will help you get all the portraits and official pictures you want even if it means she has to help get some of your roudy family members back in line. Let me tell you, we were not an easy bunch, but she kept her cool (despite it was super hot that day!) and kept the difficult ones in check.
Last thing to say is that not only did she deliver over 1000 pictures to us, but she managed to do so in four weeks! Based on my research a lot of photographers take 6-8 weeks to get you pictures so this was AMAZING!
I would hire Linda again in a heart beat!Sent on 07/08/2019

So much love for Linda!
Linda was THE BEST photographer we could have asked for! She made us feel prepared and organized for our wedding day even though we had no idea what we were doing. On the day of the wedding, she made sure that we stayed on schedule without being overbearing and while still letting us goof around and have fun. Our wedding party had a lot of personality, but she took it all in stride. We were happy to see her joining in on the dance floor and hope she had as much fun at the reception as we did! We have only received a couple teaser photos, but we are confident that all of out pictures will be just as beautiful and representative of our big day.Sent on 05/04/2019

True to it's name!!
From start to finish, Linda was completely awesome! My husband and I couldn’t have been happier with our wedding services provided to us by Awesomesauce Photography. Linda met with us on two occasions prior to the wedding, and was always available for questions or concerns right on up to the event. She helped us plan a detailed list of needs and wants for our photos, and was extremely helpful with offering suggestions in situations where we were unsure. On the day of, she warned me that she was going to be my “Shadow” for the entire day…and she wasn’t kidding! She was a PERFECTLY WONDERFUL shadow to have though! Linda was continually there expertly directing us all when needed, yet she was also at a distance when possible throughout the festivities allowing us to completely enjoy our special day. I would truthfully need an hour of your time to go down the list of little and big things that Linda took care of all through the evening. From lacing up my corset, catching amazing pictures outside before the sun set, orchestrating the perfect moment with my Father’s first look, tying up my sneakers when my feet needed out of dress shoes, and some additional unmentionables that we brides need throughout the process…wink wink…Linda was right there! It was safe to say that she was a part of the family by the end of the night. Overall, if you are looking for someone who is professional, outgoing, detail-oriented, dependable, and passionate about their career, Linda Spencer and Awesomesauce Photography is the way to go. Thanks again so very much Linda for truly adding great joy to our celebration!Sent on 11/14/2018

Linda was so excellent to work with! She’s very nice and flexible. She also keeps to the schedule, she doesn’t mess around when it comes to making sure everyone is in place at the right time to help keep the day flowing well! She works alone which at first you think she might not get all the shots but I guarantee she won’t miss a beat! All the photos were excellent quality. Anytime I needed anything Linda always responded quickly with the answer!Sent on 12/24/2018

Linda Spencer from Awesomesauce photography did an amazing job capturing the events and special moments of my big day! We booked her for the whole wedding day, starting with getting ready in the morning, the ceremony and the reception. She is very friendly, professional, flexible and reliable, but also entertaining! Not only she was taking photos, she was also sometimes dancing with us and making everybody feel comfortable!
The photos turned out to be great, the color pictures as well as the black and white!
We highly recommend Linda Spencer for your event! Thank you Linda for the wonderful pictures and for giving us unforgettable memories!

Linda knocked it out of the park!
Linda did a great job of capturing the spirit of our wedding. She got all of the standard shots along with plenty of shots with 'character' that we loved. She was with us all day and worked tirelessly to make sure we got all of the special shots we wanted. It was especially nice to not have to worry about a cutoff time. More than one guest remarked on how unobtrusive she was, which is amazing considering how many pictures she shot. She's friendly, professional, fun, and an excellent photographer! We gladly recommend her!Sent on 10/16/2018

Linda is AMAZING! There are not enough kind words to say about her and the services that she provides. Not only did she deliver incredible photos but she made us feel comfortable on our big day. We felt pressured by our planner to rush through things but with Linda's kind words she comforted us with letting us know it was OUR day and we can do whatever we please. Linda shines a light of joy and happiness and is a pleasure to work with. She's flexible, creative, and caring. You can tell she loves what she does. I highly recommend Linda.

Linda was really awesome during our wedding, especially since she had to deal with inclement weather. She helped out in ways that a traditional photographer probably wouldn't bother with, and always had a smile on her face. I highly recommend Awesomesauce Photography!Sent on 07/07/2018

Leslie · Married on 04/28/2018
Working with Linda was great. She helped us work through the timeline of the day and even set the ceremony start time since we didn't know what would be the best time in the late afternoon/early evening. She was able to wrangle both families and get all of the family portraits done quickly leaving us time for pictures of just us, which were beautiful. She got so many great shots of the reception with our families dancing and having a good time. We're both so happy with our pictures and I'm always just clicking through and reliving the day looking at them. She stayed in contact with us after the wedding letting us know when we would get the thumb drive with the images. She was great to work with and I was very comfortable having her around all day and while we were getting ready.Sent on 06/19/2018

Amanda · Married on 03/25/2018
Wow, what can I even say about Linda? From the very first meeting, she was attentive and enthusiastic about getting to know us so that she could give us *our* special day. We had a somewhat condensed wedding timeline and ended up behind schedule, but Linda somehow worked her magic and got everything done! She was so fun to work with on the day of, and definitely helped to minimize the stress factor for this type A bride. Her packages are extremely affordable and she is always willing to work with you to ensure that you get what you want within your budget. We got our wedding photos to the day of our 1 month anniversary and....well, we were blown away. The candid shots, the group shots, the portraits—everything was so, so perfect. We're SO happy with the photos and wouldn't have wanted anyone else to capture our big day! Highly, highly recommend Linda. Thank you for everything! <3Sent on 05/07/2018

Linda and Awesomesauce Photography were absolutely superb! Linda was so nice and easy to work with and had all her bases covered. It's the little details where she shines: from the pre-wedding consultation, to the big day itself, to the personalized notes included in our photo package, Linda brings it all. Her photos are absolutely incredible and completely captured our wedding and special day! We cannot recommend Awesomesauce Photography enough!Sent on 11/08/2017
Laura · Married on 10/07/2017
Linda is INCREDIBLE. And I'm not just saying this because our photos were wonderful. In fact, they are better than we could have imagined! She's incredible because she loves what she does and that's evident in the quality of her work. Linda captured our day in a way I didn't think was possible. The laughter, the funny moments, and THE DETAILS...her photos tell a story. A story, as a bride and groom, that is magical to see weeks and months later when you have already forgotten about the million decisions you had to make. She allows you to be transported back into that special day - just through a photo! She also has a way about her that makes you instantly feel comfortable. If you're self-conscious in front of the camera, then look no further for a photographer. Linda makes those fears and nerves disappear. Don't know where to put your hand? She'll help you. Don't know how to smile without looking constipated? She'll make you laugh and relax. By the end of our wedding day, it didn't feel like we had hired a stranger. Rather, it felt like we had a friend shoot our wedding. She was there 150% from beginning to end. Whatever question or concern we had, she always had an answer or suggestion and she was so fast to respond! Her vision, personality, creativity, and professionalism are top notch. Not to mention, her style and photos are absolutely beautiful. She is always the person I refer when friends ask about a photographer. She will also always be the person I talk to about photographing our family for years to come. Thank you, Linda for your outstanding work and just being YOU!Sent on 12/22/2017

Need a photographer? Owner of Awesomesauce Photography, Linda Spencer, is the obvious choice. I was recommended Awesomesauce Photography by a coworker, and I am glad I listened to her. My then fiancé and I hired Linda to take both engagement and wedding photos. We took our engagement photos in December 2016 and our wedding was in August 2017.Sent on 09/25/2017
Initially, there were two reasons we hired Linda; one being cost. I had done my research and looked at other photographers. There is huge variation in pricing and what you get for that price when it comes to professional photography. I was fearful of going a cheaper route and getting photographer of less quality. Fortunately, that was not the case. The wonder of Linda is that her work is phenomenal (just check her website, FB page, or Instagram), AND her price is very reasonable. At a set cost, I got a digital set of all my pictures, so I got to use them as I pleased. Plus, she places all the pictures on her website so friends and family can purchase what they want.
Awesomesauce Photography has beautiful quality work at an affordable price. The cherry on the cake is how wonderful Linda is. She is professional, but also fun and outgoing. Linda made all our meetings and sessions fun and personal. She took the time to get to know us and make us comfortable. I hate getting my picture taken, but Linda was able to loosen me up and get great shots. At the wedding, she got the guests animated and helped the bridal party relax, while getting the pictures I wanted. Her personality – kind, fun, personable, yet organized and responsible – led to quick, beautiful photos that I will enjoy for a lifetime.
Now looking at the pictures, I am so glad we chose Awesomesauce Photography for our wedding photography needs. Linda did both artsy/creative shots and traditional shots. She gets the shots YOU want and then some. So thank you, Linda! For any future photography needs, I couldn’t go to anyone else. 5 starts!!
