You can tell that they do this often, and that they've been doing it for a long time!
My beautiful photographer, Buffy, was so sweet and simply added to the excitement of the day! Her professionalism in handling time was awesome, and I didn't feel pressured or awkward at all in front of the camera. Furthermore, she did an excellent job with the shots that she got. I really REALLY couldn't have asked for anything better. :)

I wish I could give Buffy and her team at Life Long Studios more than 5 stars because it is seriously what they deserve. The quality of her photos are absolutely stunning and her level of commitment to making her clients happy is amazing. From the moment we met Buffy as a couple at our inquiry session, through our engagement session, and finally at our wedding she always made us feel special. She really took her time to get to know us and get the kind of shots WE wanted. Her pictures are timeless and I am so happy that the biggest day of our lives was captured so perfectly!

I had Buffy and Amy shoot my wedding and they were outstanding. So much so that my guests were commenting to me how impressed they were with how hard they were working. Laying on the ground to get the prefect shots, and braving the cold without pause so as not to miss a moment. It wasn't just their technical skills that made them so wonderful either, it's the way they connected with us. Everything from bustling my complicated 11 point dress, to making sure they captured the moments that were truly special. Pictures of some priceless details I wouldn't have even thought about, and the way they got my husband to pose! The care they took in all the small things really shines through. Instead of going through pictures thinking dang I should have tucked that in, or fixed our hair, I was smiling, laughing and reliving every moment. The variety and amount of pictures were beyond what I expected. Most importantly they really captured the 'spirit' of the day. Love and happiness shines through and takes me right back to all the beautiful moments. I am just so very happy. As is my husband. He has been hounding me to send him pictures at work to show them off! When they show up, they really show up! Thank you Life Long Studios!!!!!!!

Buffy photographed our 9/27 wedding at The Birchwood. She was awesome and I love the pictures!!!

She was calm and relaxed while making sure all the important shots were taken. I was hesitant to spend too much time taking pictures outside because of the heat and imminent rain storm. She monitored the weather, got a ton of great pictures outside The Birchwood and across the street at Vinoy Park (those banyan trees, beautiful) and got us inside before the sky opened!

She was also great about offering advice. She taught us the best way to pose during our engagement session. She also reminded my husband before our first look to tell me I looked beautiful which is a good reminder when so much is on and you don't want to upset the bride!

I was completely shocked and delighted when our pictures were edited and ready the Thursday after our wedding!!!! There were over 800 pictures.

I am so happy with the pictures! She really captured everything important about the day and got great shots of details like my dress, The Birchwood sign and the bouquet. The pictures were artistic and creative but classic.

Life Long gives you a (super adorable) thumb drive with all your edited pictures and their rights. I looked at other photographers that wouldn't give up the rights to the pictures. I liked bring able to print my own pictures as I pleased and not being locked into a photographers' rates.

Buffy is great and I've already recommended her to one friend that hired her for her March wedding. I would recommend her to anyone who enjoys her beautiful photographic style!

Not only did my pictures come out beyond amazing, they were so quick in getting them to us! AND Buffy and Gabrielle were 2 of the sweetest, most kind people I have ever met in my life. Buffy not only took amazing pictures, but helped out with so many details when I was getting ready to enter panic mode. They sincerely care about you and your big day and are always there for you. I can't thank you guys enough for all of your hard work and genuine care for us. AMAZING!!!

We would highly recommend Buffy at Life Long Studios. She did a great job of making my husband, who hates taking pictures, feel comfortable. She also knew our venue so well that we did not have to worry about knowing backgrounds or ideas for pictures. We did not have the opportunity to meet or have an engagement session before the wedding but Buffy was so sweet and personable that it didn't matter. We also took advantage of doing a back in the dress session the morning after the wedding on the beach. The reaction of our friends and family seeing us in the ocean in my dress has been amazing! Everyone has raved about our pictures and we feel like Buffy and her team went above and beyond for us. Thank you Buffy! We will never forget how special you made us feel on our big day!!!

Buffy and Stephanie were so great to work with! From our initial consultation, Buffy was extremely helpful. She helped us put together a timeline and gave us great advice! She was, by far, the most professional of the photographers that we met with. Their prices were very reasonable and it looked like they deliver quality work. After our engagement session, we knew we had made the right choice! We loved all of our pictures and were so excited to have her shoot our wedding. Stephanie hung out and took pictures of the guys before the ceremony. They all said she was so much fun! Buffy has such an amazing eye for capturing the perfect shot. My husband and I are not the best models, but she made us look great and always feel comfortable. We actually got our pictures back way sooner than usual because they had a slow week which I was excited about! And, of course, they came out absolutely amazing! We knew we wouldn't be disappointed by Buffy and Stephanie. Thanks, ladies, for giving us memories we will cherish forever! Future brides, go with Life Long Studies!

I am absolutely thrilled that I chose Life Long Studios to photograph our wedding. Buffy, Stephanie and Rhianna (and Gina) were all professional, creative and fun to be around. Our wedding photos came out amazing - and we received a TON of them. Since the day went by so quickly and was such a blur, I was super anxious to get my pictures so I could remember some of the details that I missed. They did not disappoint!

Buffy and the rest of the staff of Life Long Studios were OUT OF THIS WORLD! Our pictures are everything I've ever imagined and more. As a bride photography was the most important detail and Buffy went above and beyond! If I had a complaint it would be that I wish I could have spent the whole day taking pictures with her- she is truly an expert and an artist. Thank you so much for giving us a gift that we will be able to treasure forever <3

Buffy and her team at Life Long Studios are fabulous to work with! From answering questions before booking to scheduling engagement sessions and discussing details the week of the wedding, she and her team were professional, quick to respond, and just awesome. We decided to pay to rush the editing of our wedding photos and got them back in less than 2 weeks. Our photos have gotten RAVE reviews from everyone who has seen them. I've been told our photos look like they came from a magazine more times than I can count on my hands. Buffy makes sure she gets all of the shots you want and is excellent at corralling large families. She guides poses that come out looking very natural. I truly can't put into words how happy we are with our wedding photos, and the overwhelmingly positive response we've gotten from everyone who has seen them. To top it off, Life Long Studios is one of the more affordable wedding photographers (that I spoke with) in the area but their quality is top notch!
