Michael and Aly were amazing with our engagement photos. We were nervous about getting to our session and it being awkward or not having enough poses to do. But they both made us feel so comfortable and when we would get stuck on what to do next they would suggest poses for us. The whole experience was such a blasts. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to capture a memorable moment in their life!Oct 26, 2016
