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

I recently worked with Gary on shooting some head-shots as well as some pictures for an acting and talent profile. It was a very relaxed and professional atmosphere and I really enjoyed Gary's attention to detail when it came to specific lighting and shot angles. It was very refreshing to shoot with someone who genuinely enjoys their profession, instead of just shooting a few photos and sending you on your way. Overall I would recommend Gary to anyone who is looking for professional quality photos in any regard. 5 stars

Bruce and Paula were amazing! They were very helpful with my first professional photography session. They helped me pick out what outfits would be best and were great with guiding me into the various poses. Plan on using them for my next session

Meagan was absolutely wonderful to work with. This was my first time doing an outdoor photo shoot and to top it, we just moved here from another state one month ago. She asked me what I wanted and she met every expectation. I would definitely recommend Meagan Shady Photography to anyone looking for a positive experience!

I will spend some time visiting with bright to find out exactly what she is looking for her special day. I want to make sure that I will capture the special moment for her to relive this moment in the future day to come.
