"Lisa is an absolutely amazing and versatile photographer. I found her after researching a ton of photographers in the area, and I knew I wanted someone that could create amazing pictures even in the worst and rainy conditions. As it turned out, it rained on my wedding day and those were some of the best photos I have ever seen! She is so down to earth and made our engagement and wedding shoots so much fun and she makes it so easy to relax and be comfortable. We are using her for our Christmas card photos too! She really captures the memories of the moment, I was absolutely stunned at her creative talent and her awesome personality!"

"I am so grateful to Lisa for being such a big part of our wedding day. It POURED during our wedding and Lisa made it feel like the rain made my wedding even better. She and her assistant Brooke, faced the elements and delivered some of the most amazing shots that rival those I have seen on Pinterest or in wedding magazines. Lisa is so fun she feels like one of your best friends right there celebrating in your special day and the important days leading up. She was also such a breath of fresh air as things got hectic, she directed people efficiently and pleasantly. She was a HUGE help throughout the day. My husband and I cannot thank her enough! "

The Final Consult
With one month left to go before the "I Do's" we need to talk! I'm super stoked for all of my couples and one of the most important aspects of my job is to know what's happening so I can capture it. Here's what you need to do for me AT LEAST 3 weeks before the wedding.
last minute suggestions
> send out copies of your itinerary from your various vendors to family, VIP guests and bridal party
> make sure that you plan to eat and drink something before or during getting ready
> have a wooden hanger to hang the dress on for photos and keep a bag/box of all your details for photos (rings, invitation, jewelry, perfume, shoes, etc.)
> designate someone to be a "time checker" during getting ready to keep on track
> have an "oh shit kit" with you that has: Advil or Tylenol, stain remover, sewing kit, tissues, and anything else important
> find SOME time to be alone with each other during the wedding day (before or after the ceremony) just the two of you, tel everyone else to wait and MAKE time for each other because it goes quick. so slow it down.
> if you are providing meals for your vendors, ask your caterer to serve them when the bride/groom are served so that the meal you are paying for isn't wasted. frequently they serve us after the final guest has been served and by that time we are back working again and the food is wasted
> take time for photos at the end of the night for some backlit creative shots
> be flexible. things happen, it could rain, it could be cold, etc... make sure that you make the best of anything that happens and trust your wedding team. we do weddings for a living and know things you may not, so try to just enjoy it and trust we've got you covered.
