When you get married you miss so much, I wanted a photographer that would make sure she caught those special moments!!! I also hate those posed fake pictures where you can tell I am not really smiling but just trying to take a good picture. That is why I picked Forever in a Flash Photography by Amy Hershey. She takes pictures where you feel like you are caught in that moment. She was there that day for me and to make sure that I had pictures of all the memories that were important to me and my husband. She didn't even mind my 1000 family pictures because our wedding was all about family. She handled the craziness of our huge bridal party with ease. My sneak peek pictures are simply beautiful! Thank you Amy for putting up with my craziness for 15 months of wedding planning!

Amy did not communicate well via phone, email, Facebook or text. She claimed her email wasn't working and that emails went to spam. She also claimed that her phone was not working when emails went unreturned. She claimed she posted on Facebook to all her customers when she had to close for the day due to unforeseen emergencies, yet my photos were much more than a day late. She did not contact me directly to make me aware of any delays in her printing or disturbances at her print shop, nor did she have an auto-reply message when she was out of the office. I did not receive my printed package until six months after my wedding! She was inflexible about pickup times. This all could have been overlooked as characteristics of a disorganized but amazing artist, if her photographs were stellar, but they were not. Of the hundreds of photos taken, many were at an artistic angle that does not look good in frames. I have had to resize, crop and enlarge to get photos that appear decently in a frame. She also did not double check photos or take multiple shots and as a result, many photos have eyes shut, mouths open or worse. I'm thankful that I have salvaged many precious memories, but am disturbed by how someone that claims to be a professional can lack so much professionalism. There are several wedding guests that I have no photographic evidence that they even attended! I can't get those pictures or memories back.

Amy was a great photographer! She was helpful with other things as well. Very hands on. She took amazing shots throughout the entire wedding and we could not be even more impressed. Every moment was captured and ready for us to see later on. She makes you feel extremely comfortable, she took the extra step and made sure we were perfect throughout the wedding.

From the moment I met Amy I knew I wanted her to be my wedding photographer! We hit it off from the start. My now-husband and I felt completely comfortable with her, which was something we knew we needed on our wedding day to not only help calm our nerves but to ensure that we would look natural in our photos. We had our engagement session with Amy in October of 2013 and that reconfirmed that we had made the right choice- our pictures completely exceeded all of our expectations and we had so much fun during our session with her!

There were times throughout our wedding planning process when I had a hard time getting in touch with Amy. Between my night shift schedule and her busy life and complications with email we always seemed to miss each other. But every time I did hear from her she was always very friendly and apologetic. I always heard from her in the times when it mattered most and she was extremely thorough and professional.

On our wedding day, Amy was SPECTACULAR! She was more than just our photographer- she was our friend. She helped round up our bridal party as well as our guests and kept everything moving so that we stayed as close to our timeline as possible. Even being 8 months pregnant, Amy was a million places at once, shooting various angles and perspectives. Her love for photography and her passion for weddings really shine through when you see her in action. She cares so much about her clients and takes so much pride in her work. And her hard work definitely pays off- we could not be more pleased with her service! Not only are our wedding photos absolutely perfect but our entire wedding day was enhanced by having her as our photographer. Even our guests were commenting on how attentive she was to our needs and saying how impressed they were with her kindness and professionalism as well as her passion and skill. Amy is truly an amazing photograher and a wonderful person and I feel so lucky to have had her photograph my wedding!

My daughter hired Amy/Forever In A Flash photography to shoot her engagement and wedding photos. We found Amy's photography skills to be good and the pictures she took came out very nice. However, we found Amy very unorganized and difficult to work with. Amy's lack of organization began with her double booking herself on the day my daughter's engagement photos were to be taken. At the last minute my daughter had to reschedule her engagement pictures because Amy could not keep her schedule straight. Throughout the months leading up to the wedding Amy was very difficult to contact. Phone calls and emails were repeatedly ignored. Amy put the signed contract in storage before the wedding took place and never did give my daughter a copy of the contract. On the day of the wedding Amy was rude to members of the wedding party along with some of the wedding guests. Also, Amy did not take some of the requested pictures asked for by the bride and groom resulting in some close family members never being photographed on the day of the wedding. Following the wedding Amy took months to get the CDs containing the wedding pictures to my daughter. My daughter and son-in-law made an appointment to pick up the CDs only to find they were not ready once they got to Amy's house even though Amy set the appointment with them specifically to pick up their completed CDs. Finally the CDs were mailed to them over a month later, after repeated unanswered phone calls and emails to Amy. During this time if Amy was reached she would always say she had mailed the CDs which was obviously untrue since they were never received until I contacted her via an email that she never responded to. When Amy receives a bad review her response is always to say she and the client were not a perfect fit. I would recommend to anyone who chooses to use Amy as a photographer that they make sure they are that perfect fit with her or you will be treated very unprofessionally.

Amy is wonderful. She went above and beyond being a photographer. She kept the wedding flowing. She was amazing. Her photos are breathtaking. Everyone has complimented her work. I would without a doubt use her again and I have for Christmas photos already. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants quality photos because in my opinion you get what you pay for and her work was worth every penny! The photos did take a little longer (she kept me informed every step of the way) than I expected to get back but it was well worth the wait. The pictures literally bring tears to my eyes.

Amy/Forever in a Flash was wonderful. The first thing that I honestly appreciated about Amy is her true passion for her art and photographing weddings. I have seen so many photographers work weddings just for the paycheck, but Amy honestly loves it and it shows in her work. She takes the time to get to know her clients and their personalities to give them a product that truly reflects them. My wedding was just a few weeks ago, but the images she has shown us already could not have suited Ryan and I more perfectly. They are beautiful!

Amy was AMAZING!!!! She was so organized about everything we wanted to capture on our day and when it rained and completely wiped out each and every plan, she was so professional and had so many other ideas to make sure we had amazing pictures. She helped every way she could and definitely was an honorary bridesmaid!! The pictures we've seen are so beautiful and artistic and she captured each moment perfectly; she has such a great eye and each shot was so wonderfully composed. We will definitely be using Amy again for other occasions and I am recommending her to EVERYONE I know who needs a photographer!!
