Phil and Lola were great! They were helpful and easy to reach before the wedding day. They arrived to the event earlier and worked so well together in directing and taking pictures. They are very nice, funny and professional. Had a blast working with them! Excited to see the pictures I don't have any doubt that they will look amazing!

McKenna offers a variety of package deals catered to fit your needs, whether we needed 3,5 or 8hrs of photo shooting. Our wedding was a DIY wedding for the most part and we had a friend offer to take some of our pictures to help cut our cost down....which was wonderful, although he is still developing his photography skills. My thoughts were..... I only have one time to make this wedding the best ....the first look, walking down the isle, the first dance as husband and wife..... or a picture with your whole wedding party? That's a lot of people to not blink during a photo right? McKenna was extremely professional, calm, pleasant to be around. It was wonderful having someone who listened to the style of pictures we wanted... She's affordable and her work is excellent! It is sooo worth it! We had a small wedding of 85 guests and she took priceless photos, catching also the beautiful venue and moments from many angles. Thank you McKenna! MMR design and photography will absolutely be referred by us.

McKenna was a pleasure to work with who also takes beautiful pictures! She took care of everything on the day of the wedding and was great about coming up with things to photograph while my wedding party and I were running around like chickens with our heads cut off. I really enjoyed working with her!

My husband and I hired Lisa for our wedding in October 2016, and we were very happy with our overall experience. When we first met Lisa, we thought she was very friendly and professional. We didn't know much about wedding photography, but she explained her services and policies very clearly and came prepared to our meeting with an impressive portfolio. Her professionalism instilled confidence, but it was her warmth and ability to make us feel comfortable that was most impressive. You spend a good chunk of time with your wedding photographer on your wedding day, and Lisa was the kind of person that put us at ease. It was a pleasure to have her be a part of our special day. Most importantly, our photos turned out beautifully. Thank you Lisa!

Getting my headshots taken by Jessie was a wonderful experience. Her understanding of modern standards, as well as her ability to position you in ways for more striking shots, was invaluable. On top of her skill as a photographer, she was very professional throughout the whole process. And dare I even say, fun to work with. I would, and have recommended her to all of my friends who have asked about getting headshots. Thank you Jessie

Not only is Jessie a phenomenal photographer, but she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She is quick to make anyone feel comfortable and confident, keeping a smile on her face the entire time. Loved working with her for some impromptu couple photos. I would highly recommend her for any photography need 😊

Mike was a joy to work with! Being a photographer myself, I was very picky about who to hire to shoot my wedding. I could tell from Mike's portfolio that he had a great eye and was technically an excellent photographer. He shoots beautiful landscape and nature images that really translate into gorgeous outdoor wedding photos. As we were getting married outside in a huge field, I knew I could use this to my advantage. Plus, he shoots mostly natural light - which is exactly my style. On top of all of this, Mike was very kind and easy to work with. Leading up to the event he was organized and responsive and after the event, he quickly delivered our images. On my wedding day, he was very relaxed and we barely noticed (like a fly on the wall), yet he was always in the right spot at the right time to catch all of the best moments of the day. My family loved him and he even volunteered to take my dog in his car to our ceremony so she didn't jump on my dress (ha)! I recommend him to many of my friends in the area and have even hired him to shoot an event with me because I think he is that phenomenal! I'd hire him again as my wedding photographer in an instant. :)

Mike did an incredible job as photographer for my wedding last year. He has tremendous intuition in any given moment, not only for what will make for a beautiful image, but in how to capture the spirit and personality of the people he is working with. Mike integrated seamlessly into our small, intimate event, and was an integral part of our day and wedding experience. It is a joy to work with Mike - he is professional, talented, and committed to producing top quality results. We are so pleased with the images that he captured from one of the most memorable moments of our lives, and we could not imagine that day without him in it. I've hired many professional photographers in the past to work events for me, and Mike is among the very best I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

Wedding photographer. He did an outstanding job. I hate my photo being taken so was dreading the pictures. But his work is amazing and all of the pictures as so beautiful. He made me and the entire family feel very comfortable and relaxed. I would recommend him to everyone.

Dana took amazing engagement photos of me and my (now) husband. She also made a beautiful slideshow for our wedding. The pictures are gorgeous, and the slideshow is indescribable! The colors in the photos are so rich, and the setting was so fun. The slideshow was so emotionally gripping, everyone at our wedding loved it! They've been talking about it for weeks. This woman is an awesome photographer. Choose Dana!

Hannah was our wedding photographer, and she did a fantastic job! We are both fairly shy so we did an engagement shoot couple of months in advance so we could get used to being in front of her camera. It was an excellent way to get used to being in the spotlight, and we got some wonderful photos out of it, including one we made into a canvas "guestbook" for our guests to sign at the wedding! We had a couple of conversations before the event to go over details via Skype, email, and in person; we were totally new to hiring a photographer and she was patient and super-clear about all our questions and concerns. She responded promptly to emails and followed through on everything we discussed! When certain plans fell through (as is the case with weddings), Hannah was consistent and easy-going, and effortlessly kept us in happy, smiley moods all evening. From start to finish, we were so fortunate to have her talent, good humor, creativity, professionalism, and energy. She captured so much of what we envisioned and also a lot of wonderful candid moments we weren't present for at the time. We would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Hannah did a great job with our wedding. She came highly recommended by family and we are so glad we used her for our big day. We have so many beautiful pictures to remember the day by. Hannah was really great to work with. Scheduling was easy. She is very professional, while still very laid back. She gets great shots both candid and staged. I was afraid the staged photoshoot would be awkward with someone we didn't know but it was actually a lot of fun. Having a photographer that's really easy to get along with makes the experience so much better. I highly recommend Hannah for any special occasion!

My husband and I wanted a professional photo with our 3 dogs because one of us is always missing in our home shots, plus we could never get all 3 dogs to cooperate at the same time. Chris was so great: he spent a bit of time allowing our dogs to sniff him, and bark at him, and run around him, and then they settled down, and eventually the youngest, 3 years, even "hugged" him! He brought a few doggy treats and worked with the pups until they were literally following his cues for rewards! We had some ideas for settings, and Chris walked our yard and had some cool suggestions. In the end, I don't even know how, he managed to get some fun, funny and wonderful shots of the 5 of us, and some different combinations as well. He was gentle, professional, and a real joy to work with. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone seeking the perfect combination of professional results, with a playful, warm and patient photographer!

Tads dedication to our wedding never faltered even when he had lost his camera in an accident days before. He got a new one just for us. Tads direction was extremely helpful during our big day. Weddings are extremely hectic and can be overwhelming, but Tad handled it all with grace, composure and a helping hand. He guided us through all the pictures, calmly showing us what to do and encouraging us we were doing a good job. Tad is a wonderful person; very kind, intelligent and a master of his art. The photographs were magnificent. They exceeded all expectations we had for them and we have dozens proudly displayed at our home. We can enjoy vivid memories of our wedding everyday, thanks to Tad and his vision Tad will walk alongside you every step of the way in your work with him. Hes punctual, attentive and always responds quickly to messages. He will have your full attention. I hope you choose Tad as well. He will allow you to focus on your wedding and not have to worry about the pictures. Youre in good hands. I didn't know him before the wedding, but he made a huge impression on our lives

Tad was delightful to work with and he delivered an amazing final product. My fiance and I hired Tad to take our engagement photos and I am so glad that we chose him. Not only did the photos feel genuine and candid, but we actually had FUN on the photo shoot! I didn't expect to. Tad has a warm personality and his excitement for photography is apparent. On site, Tad made us feel quite comfortable in front of the camera in a way that helped us relax and enjoy the experience. He gave just enough pose direction that we knew what to do, but not so much that it felt unnatural. Just the right amount. The shots were well composed, well edited, and truly captured our vibe and our love. We will definitely hire Tad for future special occasions. Highly recommend his services!

Jake is one of the most gifted photographers I have seen. His ability to improvise and make the most of virtually any backdrop or lighting is remarkable. Our newborn just started smiling in his sleep and it was such a fleeting, precious moment that needed to be captured like lightning. Jake managed to capture that lightning so we could share it with the world. He was able to make every situation appear as natural as possible. There was no posing, just living. I would recommend Jake to anyone who needs that special touch with capturing their most joyful stages in life. I am going to miss having him around as our son grows up, because we have had so many compliments on our photos. I know he will bring this same enthusiasm and talent to all of his future clients. Absolutely highly recommended.

Jake was really easy to work with, down to earth and a great photographer. He didn't rush me and helped me pick poses. I was sure my photos would turn out bad because I'm not photogenic at all so when I got them I was happily surprised. Everything looked natural and nothing looked fakey or photoshopped, which was really important to me.

We hired Darcia Davis to shoot our wedding ceremony and reception on September 8, 2012 and are so very pleased with our experience with her! She photographed our day for 8 hours starting with us getting ready separately with our bridal parties, then our ceremony at the beach and ending at our reception venue. Darcia is so easy to work with and a true professional. She is so good-natured that, for someone like me who is very uncomfortable in front of the camera, I felt so relaxed while my husband and I were doing our portraits with her between the ceremony and reception time. And the pictures absolutely showed the ease and quality of this experience. Much quicker than we had anticipated, Darcia handed over a CD containing almost 800 beautifully edited high-resolution images in a variation of printable size formats. For lack of a better explanation, we were blown away by how our day was captured. Seeing the pictures, it is clear that Darcia has a very artful eye for beautiful shots. Absolutely beautiful! We are truly able to relive our wedding day because of her skillful execution. She did such a perfect mix of candid and posed pictures of all our guests and us. Also included in our package were an online image gallery that guests can view and buy prints from and a photo album that Darcia personally fills with beautiful prints. The special time she spends and her knowledge and love of her craft is clearly shown in her beautiful product. We consider ourselves lucky to have found Darcia Davis to photograph our wedding, thank you!

About

I love weddings. I started this adventure in 1990 and it's still an honor to do this important work. I try to bless every wedding I photograph. I see the moments in-between the moments. Capturing the true spirit of you and your wedding is important to me. I offer a lot of art in my images. For 25 years I have been creating special effects art photography. People say "your images take me their." I love to weave this work into the weddings that I do. For the unbelievable engagement session, there is no time limit on this, because I take all the time needed to get to know my customers and get all the right images. This session is one of my favorite things I do and it shows. Thank you for looking, Jeff Aspnes

About

At Memories Photography, we offer personalized wedding and family photography. Our interest is in making your memories last a lifetime, the way you want to remember them. How do we succeed in this? We offer open communication and encourage hands on involvement by our customers. All events are different, everyone has their own personal style and/or other images they truly admired. We want to know your dreams. Just for that reason, we never approach a project with a cookie cutter plan that fits our style. We strive to fit your style and wishes. While we have ideas that have worked in the past, that does not mean they are for everyone. You will meet our photographer prior to the day in order to open up communication and start the process of planning the day either in person or over the phone. But communication does not stop there. Once the images have been down loaded; a proof sheet will be made and images will be uploaded to a webpage for your viewing and approval. Unlike other photographer, these images are unedited. You will choose the images you prefer based on composition, style, lighting, and whatever other elements you like and supply the list of favorites. Feel free to let us know if you like the images as it is (color correction and other work aside) or if you would like to see it cropped, tilted, or maybe converted to black and white. From there, we go to work on the final editing process that fits your desires. Pricing at Memories Photography starts at $150 and goes up from there. Every package is custom-tailored to the location, time, and event. Please contact us with an overview of your requirements for a budget bid and we would be more than happy to put a custom package together for you.

About

I am providing great portrait photography to the Skagit Valley area, including Mount Vernon, Burlington, Sedro-woolly, Anacortes, Oak Harbor, and La Conner!

About

My wedding rates begin at $1,500. I am an award-winning wedding, portrait, and event photographer, available both nationally and internationally. I am available at no travel cost to the Seattle/Northwest, Washington area. Located between Oak Harbor and Coupeville on Whidbey Island, I easily service the Lopez, Orcas, Camano and San Juan Islands. I also travel between Victoria, BC and Portland, OR, for weddings, for an additional $200. PS. When comparing prices, understand that you may often be comparing apples to oranges in quality. Digital photography has no barriers to entry, and many snapshot artists with no training are closing weddings at cut-rate prices and leaving the couple with overexposed, poorly framed photos of their special day. Examine competitors' work, experience and affiliations before comparing costs.
