Holli was a great photographer for our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. She was on time, professional and eager to help us get what we wanted out of our photographs. We meant with her multiple times to discuss what we wanted. She was very knowledgeable and asked us a lot of questions to make sure that she understood the angle that we wanted to go. The day of the wedding, we had a mishap with our groomsmen and Holli talked to the guys so that I wouldn't have to. Our pictures are perfect!

So far I love my pictures, just wish I would have got more with my family. I gave her a list of shots I wanted prior to my wedding and she forgot it, and with the chaos of the wedding, I too forgot what was on the list. I also wish I would have asked her to take more pics of my guests. There are only about 5. But she is really talented and the pics she does get are amazing. It is also great that she gives the full copyright to you in the CD! A great value!

This was the one area in my wedding that I recently told my husband that if we had to do it all over again this is the one area I would possibly choose a different vendor. We met with Holli twice during our planning process. She was very professional and easy to work with the first meeting. The second meeting she began dictating how our wedding would run when it was not fitting to her photography schedule. Looking even beyond this because I was hoping to have the best pictures possible, we still haven't seen the highlights that she promised to have posted online within two weeks of the wedding. Overall my experience with her was not one that I would classify as terrible, but with so many photographers out there I would definitely choose another one.

I met Holli through my brother and sister-in-law. They were married about 6 years ago and Holli photographed their wedding. It was just the beginning of her career, but I knew from that second she had a gift for taking wonderful pictures. I got engaged in the fall of 2007 and I choose Holli to take our engagement pictures. Not only was the cost wonderful she picked up on our personalities and my fiance's "cheese" Holli knew the trick to either make him laugh for a real smile or to give his "smirk" I was completely blown away, because I would always have to tell him to give a good smile:) She made us both laugh and really enjoy ourselves.Our pictures came out wonderful, so we you guessed it...next came the wedding. I knew Holli would be the one I wanted to photograph our wedding. I visited many bridal shows and got plenty of information on other photographers. I was even more sure I was going to have Holli by the prices other vendors started there pictures at. Our wedding day came and I couldn't have been more at ease. I knew with 2 photographers that they would capture every moment. We had a wonderful day and Holli made pictures enjoyable with plenty of fun and laughter. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and we are so pleased to know Holli captured all the amazing memories that we can look back upon for the rest of our lives.

I found Holli through a bridal show. I had attended two previous shows and was shocked by the costs of other photographers. When I saw Holli's work on display and found out the cost of her packages, I knew I had found my photographer! Luckily, she was available for the date we selected. Her packages were not only much more cost effective than anyone else I had spoken with, the items included (2 photographers, all day, multiple locations, proofs to keep, enlargements and DVD built into the price) were just too good to pass up. I am extremely happy with all of my prints. Holli truly captured our day in a way that takes us back to the moment whenever we see the photos. What I especially liked was Holli's unique style of using angles and just generally doing more unconventional shots. I've gotten so many compliments from everyone who has seen the pictures. I would highly recommend using Holli to anyone looking for a great wedding album!

Let's just say I coming from a line of professional photographers, I started out my search with an extremely picky eye. I knew exactly what style of pictures I wanted and was not about to settle for less then the best.
The photographers that I had interviewed were average, and the ones that I did not dare to interview were out of the budget. I was so frustrated because I wanted AMAZING photos.
....And then I met Holli. She was my last appointment and I was pretty discouraged at that point. As soon as I walked into Holli's studio I immediately knew she was the one!!! She has such a creative eye and captures everything and then some. I love her style and and her eye for all of the every moment that most would miss. She has style with an artisitc taste. I still love my photos, and have them up everywhere.
When I priced out others, and what we were getting for the price, Holli blew them all away. We have beautiful books, and books, and books of pictures. They are truly amazing and I have had endless compliments.
Now a few years later, she has done our son Cooper's pictures, and we are about ready to have another set done!
