April was amazing to work with. Her photography is beautiful, artistic and she will make your photographs look personal and unique. She is extremely professional, friendly and very flexible. She will be completely engaged and present at your wedding without you even realizing it. When we saw her portfolio and then met her, we knew we wanted her as our photographer without a doubt and would not have it any other way. Your photographs are an important investment, obviously, because you have them forever and we love our photographs! April's photographs capture intimate moments that of course we never want to forget. I would recommend April for any wedding because your wedding pictures will come out gorgeous, timeless and you will be impressed with the quality of her photograph eye forever.

Having April as our wedding photographer was a fabulous decision, and a wonderful experience. April was eager to work with us even as our wedding day was unique. April traveled to our wedding and stayed with us throughout the whole experience which included a morning, afternoon and evening component. Our photos are gorgeous! We received a whole selection of various photos--fancy artist, fun and lowkey, black and white, color...I have received only wonderous feedback from family and friends. By far, the photography was our most important investment for the day since it tells the story of our love and our families. We are totally satisfied and grateful for April's creative style!

I hired April as a gift for my son and new daughter-in-law's wedding. April was extremely professional and creative. She created exceptional memories for them. As you can imagine, being responsible for such an important choice for my new daughter-in-law, I was only going to choose someone that would not disappoint. My son and daughter-in-law were thrilled with the results. April created a beautiful selection for their wedding album. Her use of both black and white and color for their album was unique and stunning.

Bottom line: April Rocha provided me with the most amazingly beautiful memories from my wedding day. She captured "the" moments perfectly. She was extremely organized, which is vital because on your wedding day, all you will want to do is spend time with your new husband, your friends, and family. You will not want to waste any time posing for photos, even though the photos will be the most important part of your wedding memories years down the road. April scouted the locations for our photos before the wedding day and as a result of her well thought out planning, everything stayed right on schedule. My hair took a lot longer than planned, so April got my family together for their photos while I finished getting ready. No time was wasted! I've been to weddings where the photographer needs too much direction. This is not April. April will get in there and get the shots you want. The photos are beautiful and April Rocha Photography is a great value. Highly recommended.

I would like to get married again so April can take more pictures. I loved the experience with her and her crew. My pictures are amazing. She was early to everything we had to do. She stayed to the bitter end. She was very flexibilty with everyone and everything. It got really hot that day and bright so we could not do picture in an area that I wanted, she found a BETTER place and just went with it. Anyone who uses her would be lucky to get her.

April Rocha served as the photographer for my engagement photos. When I embarked on my quest to find a photographer to capture one of the happiest moments in my life, I am grateful that I found her. Her easy-going personality placed me and my fiance at ease. What I appreciate about her style of photography is that it isn't staged or campy like you would see with other photographers. The turn-around for receiving the photos was prompt and the value of her services was great. I wholeheartedly recommend April Rocha to anyone who desires a photographer who is professional, has a love of her craft, and provides top-shelf work.
