Patricia and Joel are absolutely wonderful. They take beautiful pictures and are very helpful. They have several packages and then you can pick what you want in your package by the number of points you purchase. They are an all around great couple who take great pictures. They are fun to work with and have an ease about them that makes taking pictures fun and not stressful. For our engagement pictures they went where we wanted to go and even allowed our dog in the pictures.
You will not find a better couple who will take the time to get to know you and get to know what kind of pictures you like. They were with us from the time we were getting ready until we drove away, which was about 10 hours. There is no other photographer I would recommend. We are excited to be able to use Patricia and Joel in the future when we take family pictures.
