Nancy is the Best!! i have not gotten my pictures back yet since the wedding was just 4 days ago but she is so great to work with! She was so creative and took charge and just jumped right in. She brought another photographer with her, melody, who was just as great! the two of them worked great together to capture all the pictures that i has said was so important to me. I could not have been more pleased. I'm so anxious to get the pictures back, i know they will be great!

What a wonderful experience working with Nancy! She does amazing work and after my family saw the engagement photos that she did, they all cannot wait to order photos from the wedding! I feel truly blessed to have had her, Danielle, and a friend of hers taking photos on my wedding day - I was not worried at all that the day was not being documented....it is going to be gorgeous to go over the photos and re-live the day all over! Thank you, Nancy, Troy and I loook forward to having you do our family and baby photos in the future :-)

Nancy and her team did a fabulous job capturing our wedding experience. She took the time to understand our vision, our style, and what was important to us. Her responsiveness and communication through the entire process was great and working with her was such a pleasure. Nancy has a gift for seeing beauty in even the simple things and was able to photograph aspects of our wedding that we didn't even notice in the moment. Her creativity, professionalism, and sweet personality have made a lasting impression on us and I happily recommend her!
