    Holly is a wedding photography genius. It was because of her that our wedding became one of the most memorable moments of our lives. She's was so creative. Holly plays a huge part of our wedding outside of taking photos. When we asked her to be our photographer for our wedding and told her the month of when we wanted to have the wedding, she told us she was booked every weekend of that month. :( then she said something that was like a seed and it grew and became the most beautiful situation we've ever seen. She suggested a weekday wedding... Then more and more ideas came and it all went side by side with what we wanted in our wedding. It was the best Friday night wedding I have ever seen. We're so thankful for Holly!!

    Holly was very professional in everything she did. When we did engagement photos at night it just matched our theme for the Friday night wedding. This whole experience couldn't have went any better. Holly made our dreams come true. Capturing every moment of joy and excitement and love. The best of the best! we will most definitely be using Holly Again in our future. Thank you Holly for everything. You really really made our wedding special for us to remember for years to come

    Holly did an excellent job personalizing our experience with a "getting to know you" questionnaire. If you have particular preferences, be sure to let her know what your likes/dislikes are when it comes to the types of photos you want. She is very accommodating and will work with you so that you end up with your perfect photos.

    Holly and Marquis (assistant) were great in EVERY aspect: from initial request and contact, through scheduling clarity, through flexible mobile set up and execution. I commissioned professional headshots to be done for professional use. I had three different outfits, with and without glasses, essentially two settings that lead to 5 very different types of backgrounds and shot variations. I can only imagine how organized, politely directive with open suggestions, and thorough she would be in a wedding! I would hire her for a wedding, for sure! I will likely also ask her to take some family pictures of us in our home at some point.

    I appreciated that she came to me and had all the equipment with her. Wow! She was great at making suggestions, taking suggestions, and working magic!! She was fun, fast and clearly dedicated to her craft, but more importantly, dedicated to my satisfaction. I don't know how she did it, but I looked GREAT! :-)

    There aren't enough words for me to express how happy I am with the photos and the experience working with Holly! She worked with our budget, kept in contact after booking, and sent us little gifts with cards as the wedding got closer. It made me feel like she was just as excited about our wedding as we were. The day of was smooth and she was so sweet and easy to work with. Everyone felt comfortable in front of the camera and I attribute that to Holly. And being a pregnant bride is tough as you are wanting to look your best and not like a marshmallow, she was very conscious of that and made sure to adjust my positions to either showcase the baby or cover her up. A million thank yous, and my house is covered with wedding photos because they were all amazing!

    I would love to write positive and negative criticism, but I have nothing negative to say! The photographer was the one vendor I was nervous about hiring, because your wedding photos are so important, but I'm so happy I stumbled upon Holly on the wedding wire website.
    Holly was wonderful, she knows exactly what she's doing and takes directions and suggestions wonderfully. Great attitude and extremely responsive and flexible with changes. She had good quality equipment and wasn't afraid to get dirty or get in an uncomfortable spot to get a great shot.
    Highly recommend.
    Oh, and the photo's are wonderful, only problem I have is to choose from all the great photos.

    Holly was incredible. She was engaged, excited, helpful and super responsive from the moment we met her. She provided a lot of questions to help think about how the wedding would proceed and how she would be involved. I felt very at ease throughout the process which is a tough thing to do. At the end of the process, the pictures were incredible. We were seriously impressed with so many of the pictures. The only tricky part is trying to pick out the best ones! We actually bought an additional photo book since we enjoyed her work so much.

    Holly was a spectacular photographer for my wedding. Bottom Line - Our photos turned out AWESOME! No one can stop talking about them. She has a gift. She guided us through great poses and caught the special candid moments. She was also very helpful in helping us think about where to take photos and timing given that we had a winter wedding with an early sunset and chance of rain. I highly recommend her and will without a doubt be using her for all my future photography needs.

    Holly D Photography has been my absolute favorite vendor ever! I flew out to her area a few days after the proposal to visit my family in July of this year. There, many friends and family supported her and her amazing work. It was just within those few days of visiting that I was confinced and excited that she was available to do a last minute engagement photo session with us. The pictures are gorgeous! Immediately after seeing the engagement pictures she was hired to capture our wedding day as well. Holly came out to take our wedding photos and I am still basking in how beautiful they turned out. She is truley amazing and creative. It is obvious she loves what she does. And she has all the proof she needs by the outstanding results she delivers. Thanks again so much Holly D. You're the best!

    Holly is an amazing photographer to work with! She went above and beyond in everything she did for our special day. Very flexible during schedule and locations changes and somehow managed to be very timely and professional through it all. Overall, the passion she has for capturing special moments are evident in the pictures she took. :)

    Holly was an amazing photographer and an all around great person to work with. We quickly felt very comfortable with her, especially after we met up for lunch before the wedding on her suggestion to get to know each other a bit better. She was fantastic about keeping everything organized before, during, and after the wedding -- sending in a shot list went very smoothly, and we had so many compliments about how friendly and wonderful she and her aides were during the wedding from our guests. She took a very creative approach to making sure we got the shots we wanted (even some really hard ones!) and making everyone feel really comfortable and happy. We were very glad to have her with us for the wedding and are so happy with the over 650 photos we received. Holly put up an online gallery that we can use to order prints and share directly with family and friends (so they also can order prints directly if they want) and sent us a customized flash drive within two weeks of the wedding. The fact that she was willing to travel for our wedding was even better! Holly is an amazing, laid back, friendly, and professional person who made our wedding all that much better, and we would absolutely recommend her to folks looking for a great photographer.

    Working with Holly D Photography was pure delight! The owner is so sweet and works really hard to get the perfect shot. She is very professional and her passion for photography shows in her work. My family and I have worked with Holly D Photography for our family portraits and my daughter's birthday celebration. We're never disappointed with her work and always look forward to our next photo shoot!

    Holly not only is an amazing young lady to work with but her passion, creativity, and "photographers eye" are beyond any comparison. She is very meticulous about her work and strives to get the perfect shot (which is what photography is all about) . I was in a wedding in which she was the hired photographer and I was blown away at the end product. She knows which angles to use to capture the perfect lighting (with great lighting who needs a filter right?) she has creative genius in directing the poses, and she knows exactly how to capture perfect candids (she made me pass for a real model - even though I had no idea what I was doing ).

    She is also very accommodating. I recently used her for my graduation photos. I had to reschedule with her multiple times, and each time she always made herself available (without complaint!) Once I was finally able to get in front of her camera - I was blown away (yet again) by the results. All of these points and more make her stand out from other photographers I've worked with.

    I want my review to (((resonate))) because Holly D is not only a phenomenal individual but she is an amazing photographer! BOOK HOLLY D!

    I really appreciated her professionalism and her attentiveness to helping us capture the memories we wanted to have! I opted to get a CD of my photos and got that back in a few days. I was shocked because I've used otherside in the past and had a long wait for my photos. Timeliness! Attentiveness! Care! Professionalism! So glad I found her and will definitely be using her from now on!

    Holly was recommended to me by my boss to have senior graduation pictures taken of my granddaughter because the proofs from the school photographer were less than satisfactory. From the moment I contacted Holly she was extremely engaging, responsive, accommodating, professional, and flexible. Her customer service skills are only surpassed by her exceptional abilities as a photographer. Such a talented young woman. She went above and beyond to ensure that this experience was a positive one. I can't imagine what she could have done better. We have scheduled another photo session with her to take pictures of all my grandchildren to be followed by another session for a wedding anniversary photograph of my husband and I.

    My wife and I were distraught a month before our wedding day. Our photographer had cancelled on us leaving my wife a nervous wreck. Luckily one of her coworkers told us about Holly and our wedding day was the only day she had available in April. Holly not only saved our wedding but did an AMAZING job with our photos. My wife didn't have to tell my frugal self what we need to buy from her, I was the one who decided to buy several photo books, digital photo gallery, and a canvas to hang over the fireplace. We are so glad we had the opportunity to work with such a patient, kind, and AFFORDABLE person such as Holly!
