Let me start of by saying my wedding was two days ago and after seeing only some of the pictures I had to write this review! Deborah is not only professional, kind and a pleasure to work with, her pictures exceeded my expectations. ..which is not easy to do! On your special day you will feel so amazing that days after you will want nothing more but to see pictures and relive that day! I can't tell you how many times friends of mine wished they didn't see their pictures because in their heads it was better...well for me I can say Deborah captured the best day of my life in the best way I could have hoped for. She took the most amazing pictures!!! I could actually send out the links because I am so proud of every photo! You will not be disappointed! This is a day you don't get back and when all is said and done you only have your photos. I will be using Deborah again for all of lives precious moments!

Deborah was at all times during the photo shoots at home, church and reception a total professional! She got all the angels, all the right shots and used her artistic talent to enhance the backgrounds on her photos! She and Kate were totally capturing every moment of the wedding day with such expertise and creativity.

As mother of the bride, I would highly recommend Deborah O'Brien as a first class photographer!

Deborah made sure that my bridal party, family and friends did not feel rushed when having their portraits taken. She blended in so professionally during the reception that I was never aware that the candid shots were being taken, which to me is a sign of a job well done!

She was calming and reassuring for a nervous bride. She was so patient and pleasant with all the guests' "suggestions" for shots. She was wonderful to deal with. When setting up shots she was great; she did not order us around like you hear some wedding photographers do. She wanted to take the photos that we wanted her to take. She was careful to check with us before she left to be sure there wasn't anything else we wanted her to take before she left. The photos are beautiful. There are so many wonderful pictures, it was incredibly hard to narrow down the ones to order. Deborah is truly a pleasure to work with!

Working with Deborah was a wonderful experience. She was both highly professional and flexible all at once. She scouted out the wedding site prior to the actual date to plan where she would shoot and to anticipate the available light. She shot amazing engagement photos and the photos from the wedding were superb. Her portrait shots are a particular strength. At all times she was a delightful combination of efficiency yet relatedness- she made everyone feel comfortable while at the same time being completely un-intrusive into the event. I recommend her most highly and work with her again in an instant.

Our wedding was 9/22/12 in CT. Working with Deborah was truly a joy. With all the stress that a wedding day can bring she really made things easy. She was very professional and easy to work with. She knew exactly when to get the best shots during the ceremony and was very creative with angles and poses. We had given her groups of people and scenarios of pictures we wanted throughout the day, and she was able to capture all of them. We ended up with so many choices, and different colors of pictures to choose from. Deborah really met all of our needs and made our day extra special! Because of her we have so many pictures to cherish. Our only problem was picking our favorites because we loved them all. Deborah you were awesome, and thanks for such a memorable day!! xoxo

One could not ask for a more professional and personable wedding photographer than Deborah O'Brien! While staging natural and poised group shots with exquisite care and design, we never felt "ordered around" or stiff with discomfort. Deborah was like a very talented friend in the wings-- capturing impromptu moments that were magical in retrospect and finding some way to always create gorgeous images, no matter what the lighting or challenge.

She gracefully, graciously shot dozens of family portraits to maximize the chances that everyone looked their best and she listened carefully to all our suggestions and concerns since it was a second marriage. Both black and white and color shots were crisp, vivid and breathtaking. Always courteous, punctual, and joyful, she contributed to the overall tone of the wedding in this amazing, yet always inobtrusive way. Recommending her highly is as easy as accepting my husband's proposal-- a unequivocable resounding yes, is all I can say!

Deborah O’Brien was our photographer for a summer wedding. She was attentive to details that we had not even considered. She was patient and gentle spirited through all interactions. She asked questions that helped us make later decisions, which we found very helpful. She showed interest in knowing what it was that would make this day especially wonderful for us. On the day of the wedding, she was calm and focused. She had asked us to prepare a list of all persons we wanted photographed which she thoughtfully attended to. She was creative in setting the scene as backdrop for our portrait pictures. Her candid pictures were fabulous. She made excellent use of light and camera angle so as to maximize the outcome. I will say as an older bride that she minimized any signs of my aging, which certainly made me smile as I looked back on the day. She was so willing to help us with any question or concern and it was noteworthy that I found her to always go the extra distance in her desire to make us happy with her service. She took so many beautiful pictures that we are challenged to limit our selection for our wedding album. I would highly recommend this photographer.

I will say as an older bride that she minimized any signs of my aging, which certainly made me smile as I looked back on the day. She was so willing to help us with any question or concern and it was noteworthy that I found her to always go the extra distance in her desire to make us happy with her service. She took so many beautiful pictures that we are challenged to limit our selection for our wedding album. I would highly recommend this photographer. Read less

I didn't know Deb until my fiancee introduced me to her. She was a wonderful addition to the wedding and made the evening flow so smoothly. She took phenomenal photos and we barely knew she was taking pictures. She has been so easy and helpful to work with during the entire process. Deb had wonderful suggestions for composition of photos and came up with very playful and memorable moments. We would highly recommend her.

It was a complete pleasure working with Deborah O'Brien. She was always available for questions both before and after the ceremony. She took 800+ exposures over a 5+ hour wedding, including both beautifully posed formal shots and outstanding candid shots; at no time, however, was she ever intrusive or in the way. We are still assembling the photos for inclusion in our album, which is difficult because there are so many lovely photos. I am a very experienced amateur photographer, and I have to say that her creative use of lighting and framing is many notches above what one ordinarily sees from professional photographers.
