Lana is wonderful! She is a highly talented photographer, but just as importantly, she is really nice to work with. She put my husband and I, as well as our entire bridal party, at ease during both our engagement photo shoot in November 2011 and also on the day of our wedding, 9/29/12. Lana made 3 hours of photos between the ceremony and reception into a fun part of the day (it has the potential to be a long, tiresome stretch). Several members of my bridal party commented on how fun Lana is throughout the day.

I appreciate how discreet Lana was during our wedding ceremony. I didn't notice her at all. I've been to weddings in the past with other photographers and it feels like a paparazzi event with photographers everywhere - crossing the room, blocking the views of the guests, etc. Lana didn't do that at all.

Lana did an amazing job on our engagement photos - I still get compliments on them almost a year later. I can't wait to see our wedding photos! She estimated that I would be able to see them online one week after the wedding.

I would absolutely recommend Lana to any friend, family member, or co-worker with an upcoming wedding (or any other event that needs a photographer).

This photographer did an excellent job! She took creative quality shots for the engagment photos which we used in our wedding invitations. At the wedding she and her crew were relaxed, professional and very flexible and personable. The family and wedding party commented on how enjoyable they were to work with. At the end of the wedding we were very pleased with their services. However, when we got to see the photos just one week after the wedding, we went from very pleased to ecstatic! The photos are all wonderful! She did an excellent job of capturing a very unique atmosphere that day and we couldn't have chosen a better photographer and crew!

Lana was always flexible, professional, and personable. My bridal party even commented on how nice she was compared to other photographers they had met! She took gorgeous photos, and were we to do our wedding over again, I'd choose her in a heartbeat.

Art and Soul Photography was first class in every way during our wedding. They tailored the shoots to fit our personalities and was extremely easy to work with.
They even adjusted their shoot schedule when ours was changed. I recommend them highly!

Lana photographed every detail of our wedding from "getting ready" to the reception and dance. She did a fabulous job, and we absolutely LOVE our wedding photos! Our photos are a great mix of traditional wedding photos and more artistic photojournalism type photos that capture the small details of a wedding the are sometimes missing from photos. Lana was incredibly fun and easy to work with and we were always able to easily contact her whenever we needed anything. She is the best photographer we have ever worked with and I would highly recommend Art & Soul Photography!

Lana is extremely professional, but she also manages to relate to the bride and groom on a personal level. Working with her was easy - she has a great personality, and she directed us in a way which never made our poses feel forced. You can tell from our pictures that every moment she captured was real. She took many photos at our wedding and caught every important detail, from the program fans the groom and I worked on for weeks, to my grandfather sneaking a kiss on my cheek after the ceremony. We got our proof album from her after our honeymoon, and we literally loved every picture. Flipping through the album is like reliving the wedding day, and for that, I will always be grateful.

Art & Soul Photography was the perfect choice for our wedding. After researching all of the possible vendors that Mid-Missouri had to offer we went with our first choice in Art & Soul. The experiences, both engagement photos and wedding day shots, were beyond our expectations. The photos are wonderful and well worth the price. There is a large gap between the others and Art & Soul Photography. The professionalism and friendliness puts the happy couple at ease and makes a large wedding decision, such as photos, an easy one.

Don't hesitate to go with Art & Soul Photography for your wedding day! Lana is the best -- professional but warm, she will connect with you and make you feel comfortable. Her style is beautiful, and she and her staff always manage to capture special moments. In fact, I had to add extra pages to my album because I just couldn't pare down my photos...there were just too many that I had to have! Lana was awesome at my wedding...in fact, she even snuck into the photobooth and added an extra-special touch to my guest book! Loved having her present at my special day.
