Lance and his team are awesome!! Lance is a true professional and he is so nice! He has done the photos for a few of my friends for their weddings and they all turned out amazing. I don't have my photos back yet, but this special photo he did for me and my husband is gorgeous. What I liked best about Lance is that you didn't really notice he was there taking photos. Some photographers are all in your face all the time. I saw him at our wedding and I know he was taking photos but he was never a distraction. He also had great ideas for the bridal party photos at our venue. He is awesome and I would recommend him to anyone!

Lance and his wife make a WONDERFUL team! The capture beautiful images, are so easy to work with and are incredibly talented. I can't say enough wonderful things about them. They were creative and had a vision for the posed photos. They also managed to capture heartfelt candid shots without ruining the moment. You rarely felt their presence. They weren't pushy. It felt like we had a creative partner. We shared some shot ideas and they brought their own and we ended up with a wealth of amazing pictures. The only problem we have now is choosing which ones to feature in our home, photo albums, etc. Highly recommended!

Lance and Atia travelled with my family and friends to Edisto, South Carolina, and managed--as I hoped they would--to not only capture the beautiful Southern setting but to capture moments of great joy and vulnerability. We had to get two albums of pictures because their pictures were so fantastic.

What makes Lance (and Atia) such great photographers that he couples his creativity with listening and perceptiveness: he didn't just get "pretty shots," he got the moments that Craig and I would most cherish in years to come. I found both Lance and Atia wonderfully calm (no yelling at my parents or insisting on a shot that wasn't going to work because of my crazy family)--but they still brought lots of warmth and energy to the day.

More than a year later, my husband and I take delight in the photos that Lance delivered on. We live in Texas now, but will secure Lance for our anniversary pictures next year. If you're thinking of getting in St. Louis (or really anywhere--because he'll travel with you), you should sit down with Lance. He will take your vision and run with it.

Lance is absolutely amazing!!! I was referred by a close friend after he did her wedding in St. Louis and I knew one day I would have him do my wedding photography. He came all the way to Kansas City to photograph my wedding. He is extremely professional and my family loved working with him. It was the best vendor decision I made. Don't hesitate to book him.

I have to give a cheer, because Lance Omar Thurman is AMAZING! From our initial conference call with him to the post-wedding follow-up, Lance has been a delight to work with. My husband is an amatuer photographer, so he was very thorough in choosing a photographer. Lance answered every question we had during our initial over an hour-long, three city conference call with him. He listened to our ideas and concerns and had many more ideas of his own.

He's a veteran in the St. Louis area, so he was already very familiar with both our church and reception venue, as well as the alternate locations for photos. He works with his wife, and she was also very professional with a relaxed manner. She was welcome addition to our bridal suite where the bridesmaids and I prepped for hours before the ceremony.

Most importantly, his photographs are lovely - absolutely beautiful! He captured the day perfectly. The posed shots are charming and artistic; there are both classic and creative poses from our day. Also, we were delighted when we received the files to see so many great shots of our guests too.

Lance is a true professional. He arrived about 30 minutes earlier than planned, and stayed on schedule the entire evening. Given that we had an evening wedding, but still wanted to get a downtown shots with the arch after the wedding, we had a very tight timeline. We successfully accomplished all the shots we wanted to get, and managed to arrive at the reception 10 minutes earlier than planned. Lance was committed to meeting the aggressive timeline, and it was apparent as he quickly drove us to Kiener Plaza and rushed out of the car to get that shot before sunset. He knew it was important to us, so it was important to him too.

Finally, we genuinely liked him. He was fun to work with. After our first call with Lance, my husband said, "I think Lance smiles a lot." Sure enough, when we met him for our first in-person meeting, he did in-fact smile a lot. And it was very clear that he loves what he does, and wants to make it a great day for the Bride and Groom.

Lance was great! My husband and I loved his work. He did all of our wedding pictures as well as our engagement session. His prices were great; he was well worth every penny. Lance and his wife covered every angle and got excellent shots of everything. We saw so many pictures of things we didn't even noticed that day. His work is amazing and I will continue to be one of his customers for all of my photography needs. I would recommend him to my friends, family, and any and everyone who needs a photographer. Nothing in life is perfect but when it comes to taking pictures, Lance is the closest thing to it.

Hiring Lance was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Lance was professional and easy to work with, not to mention one of the best valued photographers I looked in to. I feel that we got much more for our money from Lance than we would have from anyone else. He and his wife Atia were a lot of fun to work with and we absolutely loved our pictures!

In a word, FABULOUS! Lance created gorgeous candid photographs of our wedding ceremony and reception that my entire family continues to enjoy 6 years later. In addition to being very talented, he is warm, professional, responsive, and flexible. We would (and have) recommended him to any of our friends and family.
