About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am known for capturing the "natural" meaning that when I have to pose people, I don't just accept a good smile...the body language has to match the smile and look "real" not posed. I often will ask people to do things that take their mind off the "posing" part of the session just to get them to look "natural". I'm also known for making lemonade out of lemons from the weather not cooperating to someone having blemishes they would like to hide. I find the best angles, poses and or photoshop! :)

    Family including dogs pictures
    Cheri met us at a state park to take family pictures including 5 dogs. She did an excellent job dealing with family and dogs. We are very excited to see the results. Would recommend to others.

    We were pleased with Our session with Cheri considering there was a storm rolling in and terrible winds to deal with. We didn't get all the shots we would have liked, but that goes along with taking pictures outside.

    I couldn't have picked a more professional or fun photographer to capture special moments of my small beach wedding. She made us feel very comfortable and most importantly it was fun, with an outstanding ending product. Our pictures are more than we could have asked for. I would definitely use Cheri again! Five stars isn't enough!

    WOW - and I don't give out WOW's regulary. Ms. Salvetti, (Cheri) was a perfect fit for our event, and I feel certain she would be for any occasion. This was coordinated over the phone and via email until day of - and in spite of the lack of "getting together" Cheri was on top of everything. I like a person who is in charge and works without much "direction"... Cheri was not only that, but she made sure "We" had all the shots we needed. This was somewhat of a difficult event due to it moving as the day went. Some of the shots are "CLASSICS" and instead of photographs, they are indeed art. Cheri did such a great job, I plan to engage her for our Summer Vacation Beach shoot, comming up soon. I have no doubt, whatever you are doing, Personal Paparizzi Photography will do a wonderful job. Cheir, was responsive from the begining, stayed in touch and I never, ever felt in doubt...and that is of utmost importance. She also went past the time we had originally allotted without hesitation. Thank you Cheri and Personal Paparazzi Pothography, we will relive our event over and over.

    In communication with me, Cheri was professional, helpful, and prompt. Cheri arrived at the requested time and immediately began to help my wedding party to take pictures and to prepare for the upcoming ceremony. She had helpful advice for many things throughout the day and showed expertise in setting up shots for best use of environment and lighting. I would gladly recommend Cheri to any couple looking for a photographer.

    Cheri took beautiful beach photos of our extended family - 17 of us in all! She was very nice and did a great job working with all of us. And the photos look amazing! We also loved the poses. In the past when we've had family photos, the photographers have just told us to all stand shoulder to shoulder. Cheri had some creative ideas to make our photos fun and interesting. We definitely recommend Cheri!

    Cheryl met us on the beach in OBA to take pictures of our extended family, which included grandparents, adults, and kids. She was patient and accommodating. Her easy going personality made us feel very comfortable. In 45 minutes, she was able to get pictures of the entire family, each individual family, each individual kid AND in two different spots. The morning was extremely warm and I wasn't sure how the pictures were going to turn out because we were sweating. Whenever I have pictures taken, my goal is to get a least one good picture. Cheryl was able to capture so many great moments that it will be difficult to choose which ones to print! We haven't had pictures of our extended family since our wedding almost 17 years ago. Thanks to Cheryl we have incredible pictures to remember our family vacation to OBA!

    Cheri was an absolute pleasure to work with! Right from the beginning she understood the aesthetic I was looking for when it came to our wedding photos. Our wedding was casual and laid-back and Cheri managed to maintain that vibe with the pictures and even got us to take a few formal/posed looks as well :) Cheri made sure to maximize the time allotted for pictures and I'm absolutely thrilled with the turnout. Not only was the turnaround time incredibly fast, Cheri's handiwork and artistic eye captured the perfect moments on our special day :) My husband and I were amazed at how many fantastic shots we had to select from and we are both thoroughly impressed with Cheri's talent. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun-loving wedding photographer!!!

    Cheri was great! And our pictures are beautiful! She came to us at our hotel which was such a help. She was on time and ready to go right at sunset. She had us do many poses and got some really great moments. We have a 4 year old and she was patient and able to keep his attention through the process. We would definitely recommend her and will use her again in the future!

    Cheri was an absolute pleasure to work with! My husband and I decided to do a small ceremony in Pensacola and we were looking for a photographer that could help us capture our day, and Cheri did just that and more! With my husband being in the Navy, we decided to do our wedding in a short timeframe and Cheri was willing to negotiate on price and give us a discount. She was always quick to get back to us when planning the ceremony and the pictures she took were absolutely GORGEOUS! I received the disc in a short turnaround and everything turned out amazing. Thank you again Cheri for your amazing photos that will last us a lifetime!

    Cheri did an amazing job on our wedding photos. She has some really great ideas for pictures and always asked us first what we thought of the pose or if it was something we wanted to try. She was great at capturing those candid moments that you don't get to see as the bride and the groom and thats exactly what we asked for. Give her a call, once you speak to her your apprehension will melt away... mine did and she followed through above expectations :)

    Cheri took our wedding ceremony and reception photographs in Pensacola. Not only did the pictures turn out beautifully, but Cheri was an absolute pleasure to work with. I honestly only noticed her a few times throughout the reception because I was so busy enjoying my wedding, and was shocked to see she had taken over 500 pictures. She was never in the way, or distracting (which I have seen at other weddings). Even our guests have commented on how professional, quick, and diligent she seemed. We couldn't be more pleased with how our pictures turned out, and we couldn't recommend Cheri any more highly.

    Great experience. Cheri had lots of cute ideas and shot a ton of photos in a short period of time for a great price. Had photos on the website in a very timely manner. I would definitely hire personal papparazzi again.

    When I began to plan my engagement proposal I knew I needed a great photographer to help capture all of the great reactions and emotions. I looked around and found Personal Paparazzi Photography aka Cheri and was blown away at the work she had done in the past. Super creative but also classic, I knew I wanted to work with her. The price was reasonable and she was great about working around small changes last minute. Come the engagement day Cheri did everything I asked of her and so much more. She was able to capture the reaction and then worked with us on some really creative and cool shots. The pictures turned out GREAT!!!! The turnover was short. I can't thank you enough Cheri for the work you did. Your amazing, thanks so much. Josh Bellew
