Wendy Ardolino and her team went above and beyond when photographing our wedding this August. She really listened on our phone calls and during our pre-wedding meeting. Wendy and her team were able to get all of the shots that we wanted, and even some we didn't know we wanted. They captured the most beautiful photo of my husband as he saw me for the first time in my wedding dress, which I will cherish forever. They also did a fantastic job of wrangling our crazy families and large wedding party to make sure we could get the shots we needed and then get back to the reception. Wendy has a fantastic attitude and was a calming influence on our wedding day, when there were so many things that could have gone wrong. We received our prints digitally (via a link) just a few weeks after our wedding, and also received everything on a thumb drive. I would absolutely consider Ardolino Photography if you are looking for your perfect photographer for your big day!

Wendy was amazing. She was very professional and did an awesome job of shooting our wedding photos. She made us feel very comfortable and made sure to get all the many shots we requested. She also came up with some very creative shots. I normally hate having my photo taken, however this time it was a great experience. There were so many great shots it was hard to pick just a few to hang on the wall and give to family.

I met Wendy the day of our wedding. She had been recommended by a family member and because she was from out of the area I took his word on the quality of her work. We spoke a few times on the phone and emailed back and forth before the wedding. Wendy was absolutely amazing. She was easy to work with and took AMAZING photos. She captured so many wonderful candid moments as well as our staged photographs. Our family and friends loved watching her as she climbed a ladder and tromped out into a alfalfa field to capture priceless moments. We would highly recommend Wendy!!!!

I selected Wendy as our photographer after looking through her portfolio on her website - she just has a knack for capturing little moments that maybe no one else saw but that make memorable photos! She can quickly assess where the most beautiful backgrounds and lighting are, and captures those little moments that happen for just a millisecond. She did our engagement photos and they turned out amazing - I can't wait to see the wedding photos. I arrived a little late from my hair appointment to the wedding venue and Wendy was already there, and had already photographed a ton of items that we had wanted. She and Jane were just a joy to work with - she has an infectious smile and laugh, and kept all of the wedding party and guests smiling. I can't say enough good things about our experience(s) working with Wendy. Her work is amazing and so is she!

Wendy was an amazing photographer! She was really nice and very easy to work with. The pictures she took were outstanding and I have gotten so many compliments on how well they turned out. Wendy did a great job listening to the style of pictures I wanted and captured all the important things I wanted. The value was also unbeatable. We were on a very tight budget, so we went with the So Fun! package, which gave us everything we needed without costing too much. However, she does have a variety of packages to meet your needs given your budget/wants from photography. I would highly recommend her!

Wendy and Jane were everything I could have wanted. They were so fun and so creative. They worked with our crazy schedule and took time before the wedding date to scope out the town and find the best places for pictures. Wendy is bright, energetic, full of life and oh-so-very talented! Professional, prompt, easy to work with and the value of her presence at our wedding was undeniable. My best choice for our wedding day (besides the groom of course)!

Wendy was AMAZING. We couldn't have been more happy with her service. I would recommend her to anyone. She was always very quick to get back to me any time I had a question (which I had my fair amount of). I loved her laid back style and creativity.
We absolutely love our wedding pictures. I let her know that I needed some direction when we were taking pictures and she did just that, letting me know if something didn't look right or would look better a different way. She is very open to suggestions as well. You can tell this is more than just a job for her...she truly loves capturing the moment.

Wendy, you are an extremely energetic & positive force. It was great having your energy at our wedding! It was inspiring how your were able roll with all of our last min schedule changes. I think most photographers would have had problems but you didn't even blink. We would definitely recommend you to anyone we know who needs a photographer. In fact, we already have mentioned you to a few of our friends! Good luck with your business Wendy!

Wendy was spectacular! She was an absolute joy to work with. Wendy is very friendly and professional and captures all of those candid moments every bride hopes to have documented of her special day. Wendy is very easy to communicate with. I planned my wedding in Eugene from out of state and we coordinated the whole wedding day photography line up via email and telephone. I felt nothing but confidence in the work she would do and Wendy only exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Wendy to any bride looking to have every aspect of her day photographed by a true professional who will leave no moment left behind!

Wendy and her assistant did an amazing job before, during and after our wedding. We were very pleased with her responsiveness even before our first meeting. Everything happened on the schedule Wendy went over, and she was happy to answer all questions along the way. Wendy is fun and she is literally everywhere to document the big day! We have so many excellent photos that we are having a hard time choosing which ones to order. The website link is easy to use for viewing and sharing, and the brag book is awesome! What a fantstic keepsake that makes me proud to share!

Wendy was an absolute delight to work with, from the very first contact…to the finish product, I was so impressed! Wendy did our engagement photos on the Oregon Coast and even with the challenge of wind and shifting sunlight, the photos turned out better than I could ever imagine. However, she was able to far exceed my expectations at the big event…the wedding!

Wendy is prompt, responsive, and very creativity. I had an idea of using large picture frames for our guest and constructing a “photo stop”. She worked very hard, even brought an assistant, to make sure that my idea became a reality.

I have gone onto to create a photo book of my wedding…and it certainly is the best money I’ve spent…a quality photographer that can capture your day…because after the last guest is gone, it’s all you really have to recall and relive the most important day of your life. Thank you Wendy!

Wendy was absolutely fabulous!! She was extremely friendly, professional, and most of all, her photographs of our day were all that we could have wanted. We decided to go with the "So Excited" package, so Wendy was with us all day. She covered everything from the girls getting ready and the boys playing golf before the wedding to everyone dancing at the reception. Although she may not want me to mention this, her car was stolen the night before our wedding. She didn't discover it until she was heading off to start taking pics of us on the wedding day. This could have been a total disaster- it's the kind of thing brides have nightmares about. However, she was very professional, still showed up on time and managed to get all over Portland getting our pictures. I can't say enough about how much we loved Wendy!

Wendy was a phenomenal photographer! From the day I first called her, she was very easy to work with, refreshingly friendly, had great communication, and produced beautiful pictures. She could easily charge much more for her services and it would still be worth every penny. Prior to the wedding she was great about guiding me through the process and reminding me of things such as setting up a date for an engagement shoot (which was really fun!). During the wedding, she was everywhere and caught everything from the big moments to the small details - yet she was unobtrusive and never interfered. Even some of our guests commented on how much they liked our photographer!
We got our pictures back within 3 weeks of our wedding and they were amazing! Wendy has a knack for combining beautiful classic pictures with fun candid shots with amazing abstract and artsy photos. She didn't miss a guest, moment, or detail. We got the memory album and were just blown away with the quality of the product - it is an absolutely perfect keepsake of our wedding day and I'm sure that 50 years from now we'll still well up every time we look through it.
I can't sing enough praise about Ardolino Photography and would absolutely recommend her in a heartbeat.

I've used Wendy for family photos, our engagement photos and now our wedding photos. I can't say enough good things about her. My husband hates posing for pics and she made him feel at ease in front of the camera. She took a variety of candid photos that reflected us more than any posed photo could have. We got our photos back quickly and go so many compliments on them. I've recommended her to all of my friends.

Wendy is an exceptional photographer. My husband and I could not believe how many of Wendy's pictures we wanted to blow up and display all over our home! We were also amazed at how detailed and photojournalistic all the wedding pics were. She really caught the spirit of the day minus any staged smiles and phony photo-ops. We will definately use Wendy's expertise in the future to document any other important moment in our life.

Thanks so much, Ardolino Photography!

Wendy and the staff of Ardolino Photography were fabulous, helpful, concise and economical when we got married. We had a quick engagement and we're looking quickly for a great photographer. Wendy worked with us quickly to determine our needs and wants. Her portfolio speaks for itself! The staff of Ardolino Photography were extremely easy to work with and very cooperative and only cared about our needs for that special day. We had Wendy and her assistant there to both take pictures from the moment I woke up and started getting ready until we drove off in the middle of the night to our hotel. It was a special day and the pictures reflect that. We had tons to choose from and were given a beautiful album to cherish. I would highly recommend Ardolino Photography. You'll regret it if you choose someone else!
