Wow, I can not say enough good things about Ideal Impressions. Scottie and Heather were our photographers and were absolutely amazing! We had met with Scottie prior to the wedding to discuss what kind of photos we wanted to capture. With both of us being Military, Scottie had suggested a shoot with an American flag. Not only did he bring his own flag from home (we were in from out of town), but the shots turned out absolutely incredible! As we were folding it up after the shot, they managed to snap a few without us looking and it ended up being my favorite photo of the day, so personnal and special. At one point he even jumped in the water to get a better angle of us on the pier:) Heather spent the early afternoon with the groomsmen, and being typical guys were not into getting their pictures taken. Heather made it so much fun for them, and they ended up having a blast! The link to all of the photographs was available to us the next morning, and we were blown away. Sooo many great shots, and friends and family said that they had never seen such amazing wedding photos. They were both great to work with, flexible with all of our ideas, and brought some great ones of their own as well. I didn't want the day to be over, but I'm so thankful that we have such an amazing album to look back at. Thank you for making our day such a positive and memorable one!! We can not thank you enough!!!!!

Ideal Impressions has been wonderful to work with from the beginning. They make it easy to pay via paypal in whateve increments you want until a week or so before the wedding. Heather took the photos for our wedding while Caleb took video. They were both so easyand fun to work with, especially for someone who doesn't especially like photos being taken of themself. Our engagement pictures turned out great and I am even further impressed with our wedding photos and photofusion. I had some photos to me the same day and even more the following day! Their turn around time is wonderful! I love how you can access your photos quickly! I highly recommend Ideal Impressions Photography and Heather and Caleb!!

Ryan and Joe did a wonderful job. We are so happy with the quality and creativity of the pictures. Ryan and Joe were so professional and accommodating the day of the wedding. They always made sure we were ahead of schedule the day of, which was reassuring because we have very large families and had many people to take photos with. Throughout the planning process, Ryan was so great to work with. He was quick to respond to emails and made me feel at ease with his experience and flexibility. At the reception, Ryan offered an iPad photo booth...the guests loved this. Also, he displayed a same day wedding slide show which was unbelievable ...we got so many compliments on those photos from our guests. If that is not enough to convince you of Ryan's talents...the marketing director of the vendor in which we got married just asked if they could use some wedding photos for a resort magazine...how amazing! Going with Ryan with ideal impressions was one of the best wedding decisions my husband and I made!

We could not say better things about Ideal Impressions and Scottie (our photographer) and Ryan. From the very beginning contacting them all the way until the the end of wedding night and beyond, they have been absolutely incredible and supportive and willing to go the extra mile for us! My biggest concern going in is that my husband and I wanted to keep it traditional and not see each other prior to the ceremony. Yet didn't have 3-4 hours in between the ceremony and reception for photos. So I was afraid that we wouldn't be able to fit it all in. But Scottie was game and ready and was even able to get us a quick change of location in between. He got us everything we wanted, needed and more! I remember him saying to my at the very beginning, "I am here for you and I am your official time keeper, to keep you on schedule and on time for whatever you want and need on wedding day." And he kept good on that promise! Even checking in with me two days before the wedding just to see how I was holding up and talking about how excited he was for the big day! It really made my husband and I feel so cared for and stress free on wedding day, knowing that Scottie had it all under control! Not to mention waking up the following morning with our jaws almost on the floor at how amazing the photos turned out! Thank you so much Scottie, for everything! :)

When planning a wedding, things can quickly start spinning out of control and all of the decisions that need to be made can be overwhelming. The best...BEST wedding planning decision that I made was selecting Ideal Impressions to capture my big day. It was the best investment by far and away. Scottie Peterson was a delight. He was professional, fun, patient, accommodating, honest, realistic...not to mention calming. The quality of service was unparalleled. Words do not express my satisfaction with Ideal Impressions and the amazing talent that you get when you hire them. Post wedding, I look back on the whole planning process and there are a million things that I would have done differently. Hiring Ideal Impressions is not one of them. If you want to enjoy your day of event and still be able to look back on all of the amazing moments that whirled by during that day, hire Ideal Impressions. You won't regret it.

It's the day after our wedding and I have to post this immediately to ideal impressions for how wonderful they were! Between Cassie Spiegelhoff and Scottie Peterson and your team holy my god how does it get any more amazing!!! Everything was more than a dream and outside of our opinions even the whole group there pulled us aside to say that!! You guys went above and beyond expectations and had the whole room in awe at the amazing photo fusion - it was so wonderful to share those moments earlier in the day with those who weren't with us in the morning! You provided more than just photos - but an experience that was enjoyed by over 200 guests. Above and beyond our dreams and you helped make us feel so comfortable and easy going! Couldn't have asked for a more amazing team and would love to do it all over again just to get to work with not just your photography team but the video and photo booth also!! We are still just in a whirlwind of happiness and thank you guys so much again.

We were so glad we chose Ideal Impressions for our wedding photography. We saw them at a bridal show and loved their work. Our photos turned out amazing and we got so many, and so many awesome shots! Everyone has complimented us on our wedding photos, friends have even said they wished they used them for their wedding. The photo fusion video turned out so fun too, we opted to not have it shown at the wedding so we could include the reception in it too, and I'm so glad we did because we got some great footage of speeches, dancing, and toasts as well. We can't wait for our wedding album now too!

My husband and I are so glad we went with Ideal Impressions. Scottie was amazing to work with and responded immediately to all of our questions. We were blown away by the photofusion at our wedding. It wasn't something we felt strongly about having but it definitely gave a beautiful, emotional moment, that not a lot of people get to have at their reception. The pictures along with the video clips and song really bring people in and capture the whole excitement and feeling of the day. The quality of the pictures we have is unbelievable- everyone keeps saying we look like models. Thank you Scottie and Heather! We want to get married again!

Ideal Impressions exceeded our expectations with everything! Scottie, our lead photographer was exceptional. Cassie and Neil (our videographer) were outstanding as well. The photos they got really captured the heart of our day. They were so easy going and very fun/easy to work with. They were able to work with any elements that got thrown our way that day (i.e. RAIN!!!) and still make us feel at ease and not to worry, they would get the shots! The three of them literally went above and beyond just being the "photographers". The photo fusion they showed during the reception literally blew everyone away. Us as well! There really are no words for how awesome these guys were. My husband and I, as well as family and friends that were there have already recommended them to others and We loved them so much, we scheduled a family shoot in a few months!!! They were so unbelievably professional and easy to get along with. It felt like we were just hanging out with friends all day that just happened to have cameras with them. There was not only a professional interest in our day but it felt like a personal one as well, you could feel and definitely tell with the photos they go that there was a personal investment in capturing our day in a way that we could remember forever. I would absolutely recommend using them, they will exceed your expectations.

Ideal Impressions knows exactly what every bride and groom are looking for. You feel their passion from the first phone call or meet you have with them. They are pure geniuses!! After shooting our engagement photos with Ryan we knew we picked the right vendor. He never made us feel awkward or that we weren't doing a good job. They have been doing this for so long that they are able to pinpoint what you like by asking the right questions. The day of, they were just amazing! It ended up being really hot outside and as soon as we said we couldn't do it anymore he knew exactly where to shoot next so there was no standing around figuring out what to do next. They were able to create a video to show at the dinner of moving and still photos from that day. It was amazing that they were able to do this in a matter of time. The guests at the wedding were amazed by it and they were so excited to feel like they were part of the day seeing everything first. We ended up getting our pictures within 24 hours after our wedding. You just don't ever hear of any photographer being able to do this. They are a vendor I would use time and time again. Their work is so unique and makes you feel like you are important to them.
