From start to finish Dream Anchor Photography went above and beyond to ensure that my surprise proposal to my fiance was a memorable experience. Their local expertise helped identify an incredible location that I had never heard of before. They were quick to respond and very professional, taking extra time to get to know me and my fiance to tailor the experience to us. They even crafted an after proposal photo session and picnic with locally made foods and a hard to find bottle of sparkling red wine that I had requested because of its importance in our relationship. The photos were also excellent. We immediately felt at ease with the photographers and the results really showed in our photos. We can't say thanks enough for helping us document these memories with incredible photos!

Details: Proposal photoshoot • Candid • Natural or environmental • Artful composition and lighting • Outdoors • One location • Online or digital proofs and prints • At the pro’s location

Out of several photographers I attempted to contact for my son's senior photos, Nathan and Hilary were 1 of only 2 that actually got back to me. I chose them because I liked their style of photos as well as the fact they were close by in Williamstown. Their prices were very reasonable as well. They offer amazing photos at an outstanding price you would not find closer to the city. This husband and wife team are super fun and friendly. They were excellent at communicating with us and ensuring we were 100% happy with our photos and experience. I would recommend Dream Anchor Photography to anyone! I hope to be able to work with them again in the future and may possibly be getting a few gift certificates for family / friends for holiday gifts this year!
