I was really impressed with the engagement photos and most of the photos from the wedding!!

I had a couple of suggestions for the wedding day, as crazy as it can be. I would say to put a little more time in the formal pictures (we didn't have a good one where you could see everyone's faces clearly) and then to be a little more assertive with who you want where. The day of the engagement pics was AWESOME because it was quiet and there were only 2 of us. One the wedding day, there are a lot more people and the day can be hectic and no one knows what to do/where to be. I'd say both photographers can be more vocal about where people should stand, if they need certain people to move/not be in the picture, etc. I don't think anyone would be offended if they were asked to not be in a picture. (Ex: the ring bearer was in a lot of the groomsmen pictures -- most of them, actually.) We are still able to enjoy them, but it'd be nice to not have him in some.

Other than those few things, I am happy with my pictures!!

My engagement pictures and wedding pictures were spectacular! There were many to choose from. I am not real good at getting my picture taken; I think they usually look bad. But I found that I liked most of the pictures Candy had taken. She can really find that right moment. My Mom liked the one so much she used the picture in a background of a clock. Candy is very patient and really takes great pictures. I also found that she was really reasonably priced next to some other people near me. I would recommend her to anyone that is planning on getting married soon.

Candy was amazing and so fun. I just didn't end up with an close up photos of my actual ceremony or my dad walking me down the aisle, etc. But every other photo was perfect and they weren't the plain, old wedding photos you usually see. She made us feel so relaxed which helped the photos turn out as well as they did.

Candy was a pleasure to work with; as was her daughter Tabitha. We loved our free engagement session and couldn't believe all the great images we got just from that. We had an incredibly large wedding party and got great photos of almost everyone. My only complaints were that we didn't have enough time to capture all of the images I wanted. But she got everything that everyone asked her for. Candy offers an incredible value and is so friendly and imaginative.

Candy was absolutely amazing! She is a very down-to-earth, fun person to work with. Her ability to blend in and be unnoticeable was incredible! The last thing any bride and groom want is someone in their face on their wedding day, and Candy's photography was a master of that!
We were especially impressed with her candid shots. We all know what we look like when we pose for pictures, it's the ones we aren't aware of that let us see a side of ourselves that is unique to us.
We were absolutely thrilled with the photography that Candy provided us with and would recommend her services to anyone!
