Fran took amazing photos! Her photojournalist style truly captured the beauty and the love, and especially the fun of our wedding day. I would also recommend to any couple if they are shy, that the engagement shoot is a great idea! My wife and I were surprised how much fun it turned out to be and it was wonderful getting to know Fran before our wedding too.

I have a very fussy husband who really dislikes having his photo taken. Knowing that made me very nervous about how our wedding photos would turn out. Fran made the whole process very calm and enjoyable. She made it more of a fun, relaxed atmosphere and didn't "pose" us to much, which helped my husband stay calm during the photos. We felt comfortable and the photos captured were photos of us embraced in each others arms, kissing and even one of my favorites was my husband picking food out of my teeth . She captured us as us and I couldn't have asked for anything more ! I love looking back at the photos from our special day. She captured emotion, laughter and love. Every time I look back at our photos I feel all the same emotions I felt that day ! Thank you again for helping us capture all the memories from one magical day!

Fran is amazing. As a wedding photographer myself, I have to say that choosing a photographer for our destination wedding in Costa Rica was no easy task. We chose Fran not only because she is super fun and easy to be around, but also because of the timeless beauty she captures. Her images are also full of emotion. She is a true talent. We love our photos more than I could ever imagine. We are so happy we had Fran photograph our wedding. We will cherish these images forever.

Fran was recommended to us as a photographer only a few short weeks before our marriage ceremony. My mother had been ill with cancer and we were advised that we should get married ahead of schedule to ensure she could be there and enjoy the day with us. I contacted Fran by email and explained the circumstances, unsure of whether she could fit us into her an undoubtedly busy wedding season schedule. My email was met with the utmost professionalism and empathy, and Fran found a way to make our date work with her schedule so she could photograph our civil ceremony.

Fran took the time to make all of us feel comfortable and relaxed on a day filled with mixed emotion. She respected my mother's wishes for privacy and never acknowledged her illness or made it awkward taking the mother-daughter shots that were carefully chosen and staged to make sure the important moments were captured. She made what could have been a stressful and emotionally-heavy day feel calm, enjoyable and fun. She also never once made us feel that our small, causal ceremony was any less special or important than an elaborate wedding. Seeing the photos from this day warms my heart for so many reasons. I met a genuinely compassionate friend out of the experience who was able to beautifully document one of the most important events of my life while capturing priceless memories of my mother in the final months of her life.

I can't rave enough about Fran. Leading up to my wedding I was ambivalent about cost of a photographer given our tight budget, but I felt like it was an important thing so I started looking around. I talked to quite a few photographers and felt a bit lost choosing which one but then I came across Fran's website and I was very impressed. I got in touch with her and after we meet I felt confident that I had found a great person to shoot our wedding... and man, was I ever right! Fran totally exceeded any expectations I had. On the day she was FANTASTIC. She was so grounded and energetic and made my husband and I feel like natural models (which we are not!). She did an amazing job of organizing our wedding party and family for the various shots (she was quick!), and I can't thank her enough for telling us about the 'first look' option, it was the best thing for us.
My only regret was that I didn't hire Fran to stay the whole night! If she is available to shoot your wedding book her while you can!

Update: So I wrote that review before I even saw my pictures... now that I have my pictures I am even more impressed and OVER THE MOON in love with Fran and her work. Her shots are amazing -and there are SO many of them! She captured all the special moments... moments we didn't even know were special at the time. I feel so thankful to have found Fran and am so thankful that I have such an amazing documentation of the day. All our family and friends go crazy every time they see the pictures... Fran is truly truly talented and clearly loves what she does. Your lucky if you get her!!
