Cathy did a wonderful job photographing my retirement party. Weeks before the event; and before I could make contact with her again, she contacted me to make sure the event was still on. When we spoke initially, she had told me what time she would arrive at my event. She arrived timely, got set up, and walked the room - taking numerous pictures of my cake and décor even before the event got started. About a week later, she sent me a sample photo, and sent the other photos a few days later. The pictures are beautiful! She did a few in black and white, and they are lovely. My grandkids attended the party, and she was very... patient with the very inquisitive one; showing him the pictures and answering his questions. I'm telling my age, but I made an assumption that I would be getting the pictures in an album; not electronic copies that you can share on Face Book (which I am not on). My recommendation, if you are interested in having paper copies, discuss this before you enter into a contract. The pictures are on my phone and computer since she sent them via email, so I have been able to share them with others. I would highly recommend Cathy if you want a quality product. She is very professional, skilled in her field and a great people person!! I am very happy she was referred to me.
