    Lisa was awesome! She was personable and outgoing. And of course, she made us look beautiful in our pictures!

    I just LOVE Lisa and her photography skills. When we first met I know she must have thought I was crazy, because I booked her nearly two years before my actual wedding date. But she met with me which was a feat in itself with my hectic schedule at the time. I knew I wanted her to be my photographer just from her online galleries, but once I saw her actual portfolio in person I fell in love with her work all over again. Lisa stayed in contact throughout the year, and when we became officially engaged she hit the ground running. I enjoyed each meeting with Lisa, and she even answered my emails late night (BIG THANKS). I am sad that she will be leaving the area, but she has to share her gift with others. Our engagement session was the best, because of her great eye for photography and her all around great personality. Also, because of her suggested photography shooting schedule EVERYTHING ran just as scheduled with time to spare on the day of the wedding. Our wedding was a blast, and Lisa’s pictures definitely tell that story. I am so THANKFUL that you were there to capture each special moment. Lisa you will be greatly missed! P.S. Her company also did the photo-booth for our wedding. It was a HIT!!!! Everyone loves, loves the wedding pictures. And a friend of mine and her family were lucky enough to schedule a family session with her before she leaves. I fully ENDORSE her work and would definitely be a reference for future brides to contact if needed. THANKS a million! Britney The Newlywed

    Lisa was awesome. We had a family reunion the night before our vow renewal ceremony and she took family pictures that night when everyone was relaxed. And then she came back the next day for the ceremony. She was so easy to work with, so comfortable with all of us and what was going on. She fit right in...like she was had been a friend forever. She was wonderful...Thank you Lisa for making this such a memorable weekend and can't wait to see all the pictures.

    Had a wonderful experience - Gorgeous pictures - we wanted something tradition but creative that captured our Sprit as a couple. Loved that she came to the dinner rehearsal and got to know the family and the wedding party so that she could get better idea of the needed pictures of the event. Brittany & Phillip

    I am in love with my Fall family pictures! She never ceases to amaze me with how well she works with my wild and crazy kids. Every year my daughter has her own opinion about how she wants to cooperate when it's time for pictures. I have walked away thinking there is no way Lisa got anything. Then I get my proofs and there are so many wonderful pictures to choose from. Thankful to have amazing pictures of my family to cherish for a lifetime.

    Lisa was such a pleasure to work with for our Last Days of Summer Festival. She was prompt from our initial online interaction and she followed up every step of the way. Lisa arrived prepared and ready to interact with our students and their families. She was a very nice added touch to our festival and we will definitely use her again...and the pictures were FABULOUS!

    Lisa was absolutely wonderful! She was very friendly and personable. She was extremely patient with our son when he was crying, and she worked around his needs (needing to be held, rocked, etc). The pictures turned out beautifully and I would hire her again in a heart beat!

    There are not even enough good things to say about Lisa and her work! She made a 7 hour round trip for our engagement session, which we scheduled with out much notice, and had to move back a day due to my fiance's military schedule and she was incredibly accommodating. She was a breeze to work with and we had so much fun. Ad best of all, her pictures were amazing!!! We've been getting rave reviews from family and friends and could not be happier! I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone and everyone!

    Lisa was GREAT! she worked well with the little one we had with us. Plus she was able to book us 6 months in advance! We came from out of state so we couldn't even meet with her before hand- but it didn't matter. Lisa answered all my questions via e-mail... With a quick response time as well. We got a sneak peak of the photos and there beautiful! I was so impressed, Lisa has an easy going attitude that helped me relax during the photo shoot. I would definitly recommend her to anyone, especially anyone with kids!

    Lisa was excellent! Very friendly and professional. Kept in touch with me during months preceeding the event & great about photo booth decoration suggestions.

    I am so excited to have found Lisa as my photographer for my upcoming nuptials next year. She is very professional and friendly. She really worked with my schedule which is often hectic when it came time for us to meet and review her past work. I have no doubt that she will do a wonderful job with our engagement session and capturing those memorable moments at our wedding.

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Meet face to face with your prospective provider. It's important to be sure you like your provider and that you can feel relaxed with them. If you are annoyed with you're photographer, your pictures are going to reflect that! It's important that you like them!!
