“With all the different aspects of planning a wedding, I relied heavily on people’s referrals. Even though we were complete strangers, Linda made my husband and I very comfortable throughout the entire process. She was very knowledgeable and personable. It was the best decision. During the wedding Linda was flexible and such a joy to be around. The whole wedding party, family and guests commented on her wonderful personality. I would recommend her expertise to anyone who is interested in getting some remarkable photos from a talented, friendly, professional, wonderful individual.”

I am sure I am repeating what everyone else says about Linda, but it is true she is fantastic. No wonder why she is so desirable to use in St. Louis. I hope that my experience with her was different than anyone else, but I guess it was not. As she became a part of the wedding and family.

She not only was the role of the photographer, but when the coordinator was no where to be found, Linda stepped in and made sure things ran smoothly from bustling and fixing my dress to the cutting of the cake, then onto the to the speeches and dances. Making sure that we, the bride and groom, were not bother with questions, so we could enjoy our night.

We also received the edited wedding pictures within a week of returning from our honeymoon. After flipping through them we thought, how did she take such capture these inmate moments that were outstanding and exactly want we wanted. Thank you Linda for capturing our amazing day with the vision we had in mind.

We used Linda Rivard for our daughter's wedding! She is fabulous and highly recommended! Linda gives you the personal touch you deserve! She is very efficient and organized! She has ideas to make your photos personal and unique! You can tell that she really loves what she does and is exceptional doing it! Linda goes beyond the call of duty on the wedding day...helping the wedding party as she is taking candid shots to capture the memories! Her price is very reasonable, but her personal touch makes it worth while! On the wedding day...she brought another photography who was also wonderful! She is experienced and knows just what to do without getting in the way! She gives you all photo rights via a CD and a 4x6 print of all engagement and wedding photos! Fabulous!

Linda was wonderful to work with! She got all the pictures done that we requested, and was very professional. I was especially happy that she gives a copy of all the photos on a CD and prints them all out for you as well. This is unusual in her profession. I don't think I could have asked for anything else!

Linda was a fantastic photographer. Very professional and punctual. I (the husband) was worried about posed pictures, as I do not like my posed smiles. Linda made everyone very comfortable, so everything looked natural. At the reception we barely noticed her once the staged photo opportunities were finished, which was surprising since the venue was pretty open and not that large. Linda was also very reasonable with her pricing, and was willing to work with us. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that has an outdoor venue, this seems to be her speciality.

Linda was AMAZING! She did a four seasons guest book that showcased our engagement pictures, and it turned out beautiful. Linda is extremely caring and professional. She made us feel comfortable through our engagement sessions and on the wedding day. Linda is so sweet and really listens to her couples and what they want. We wanted to go to several locations on the wedding day to get photos and Linda was very accommodating, and even helped the driver get us to the locations quickly! Our wedding photos were then viewable about a week and half after the wedding, which is awesome because we were anxious to see them! We did not have to wait long and all of the pictures were beautiful! Linda was very reasonably priced, and went above and beyond what she needed too. We could not have asked for a better photographer. We would definitely recommend her, and we will be using her in the future for all our photography needs!

My husband and I were so happy with the service that Linda provided for us. I had heard so many photographer horror stories about wedding photographers, but luckily a friend recommended Linda. Linda was AMAZING!! She was so helpful in planning what types of photos we wanted, understood my style and what I liked by asking lots of questions and giving suggestions. We got such a good mix of formal photos, fun photos, and artistic interesting shots, which is exactly what I was looking for. Her package also aligned the best with my budget and what I was looking for in the photographer. Not only on the day of was she excellent at organizing the wedding party for photos, she was helpful in letting other vendors know what I wanted, like letting the DJ know we were ready to cut the cake and start first dances. I am definitely recommending Linda to my friend who is getting married next year!!

As the mother of the bride, I want you to know that Linda was absolutely wonderful! From the first time we met with her, she made us feel so comfortable with her style of photography, and her photos were amazing! She made us feel like we had known her all our life. She allowed us to ask the questions we wanted, and listened to the ideas we presented. Her common response was, "no problem." The wedding was held in forest park, and she knew all the little "crooks and crannies" for the best outdoor photos. She would say, "I know this little area that would be perfect, or I know this little bridge that would be awesome, or places that would bring out the colors of the wedding. She captured many "extra special" moments that we hadn't even thought of.
Linda and her assistants were fabulous, so personable. The wedding party felt like they were part of the family. She was efficient, and offered valuable advice when we asked.
I can't say enough about Linda. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is a person I would like to have as a friend for years to come.

We had Linda photograph our wedding/reception at the World’s Fair Pavilion in July 2013, and she was incredible! Linda knows so many amazing spots in Forrest Park that produce amazing wedding photos. She sat down with us beforehand and inquired about all the photos we wanted and made sure we got them. She asked if we wanted artistic photos or classic photos (we wanted both) and she was able to do both successfully. During the ceremony and reception Linda and her assistant were invisible, but they were taking tons of awesome photos. Most of our photos are so gorgeous they look like they could be magazine covers!
My husband’s favorite part about Linda and her assistant is that they let events and interactions happen naturally. They give some guidance to make sure the photos look great, but they also let you be yourself… By doing so, our personalities and those of our wedding party really showed in the photos! It was like she was telling a story about who each of us were and what was happening on our big day!
Photos are the major keepsakes of your big day, and Linda’s photos were stunning! Her turn-around time was also very quick and she posted some teasers on Facebook for friends and family, which we really enjoyed. We cannot recommend Linda Rivard enough! She is a joy to work with and you absolutely will not regret choosing her to capture those priceless moments!

My husband and I had high hopes and expectations for our wedding day photographer, and Linda exceeded those expectations in every single way. From the moment I met Linda, I loved her enthusiasm and passion for what she does. She made it extremely easy to feel comfortable in front of the camera, and I can truly say my husband and I had fun at each of the photo shoots! She was very flexible with our busy schedules, and she even took the initiative to contact us when she thought it would be a great day to capture pictures in the snow (we took engagement pictures during each season). She made it clear that she really cares about each of her clients, and she will do whatever it takes to capture an awesome shot :) In addition to her flexibility, she has unbelievable talent with her camera. I was blown away by the photos she took at our wedding, and have gotten endless compliments from friends and family wanting to use her for their weddings! Linda has phenomenal photography skills, is very fun to work with, and has reasonable prices. I would recommend Linda in a heartbeat, and I assure you, you won't be disappointed!

Our wedding had some time changes with pictures in between and a family member who was very important to us in the pictures had an emergency in between. Without me (the bride) knowing anything, she got her in all of the pictures and was SO flexible! I can't wait to use her again. :)

She was super responsive, quick to get our prints to us, and was so easy to work with. We were nervous at our first photo session with her but she made us feel right at home and every experience after was better than the last. She was a huge part of our big day and made our day that much more special. I would 100% recommend her to all future brides.

Linda was FANTASTIC! She has a great personality, attention to detail and totally knows how to blend in and just take pictures without being intrusive. At the same time she was a huge help with things way beyond her 'duties'. She cut and served our cake for a brief time when there was no one else around to do it, she lit candles, poured champagne and was just helped out wherever she saw a need. She also gave my aspiring photographer nephew hints and tips, showing him shots she just took and helping him out with functions on his camera. And of course her pictures were amazing. She offered me a price discount since our ceremony and reception were in the same location but she was well worth every penny even had I paid full price. I heartly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer especially if you're looking for photojournalistic style photos.

Linda was the perfect photographer for our wedding! She was very personable, enthusiastic, and professional with us and our family/friends. She was also flexible with her time and was able to meet with us for a mini get-to-know-you photo session a month or so before the big day.

On our wedding day she made us feel at ease and helped us just to have fun! She was in control and knew what she had to do to capture our day with amazing photos while also keeping us on track to arrive at our ceremony venue on time. It was really great to know I didn't have to worry about that. Linda was also excellent at getting the family all-together for photos before the ceremony. She worked quickly but managed to get some great shots! During the ceremony she was very unobtrusive. I really did not even realize she was there when I was saying my vows and such, although we have some photos to prove otherwise. In fact her style overall was quite natural, which I personally really like. Yes, we had the posed photos...but there are a lot of great candids that she snuck in there. Linda stayed well into our dance to document the night-time festivities, something not all photographers will do. She clearly enjoyed being with us on our wedding day, which is something I found very special.

Finally, her photography services were well priced, and the end product is spectacular! Our photos were given to us promptly after we returned from our honeymoon, and we have been complimented on them by all our friends and family. We will not hesitate to recommend Linda as a wedding photographer. She is awesome!

Linda was absolutely wonderful to work with. Not only are her photographs beautiful, Linda is so flexible and organized. She was always very easily accessible and available to answer questions, suggest ideas, etc.
Not only did she capture a vision of our wedding day, she captured the entire spirit and love my husband and I wanted to share with our family and guests.
The love she has for photography and weddings is contagious, and it is evident in the work she does. I can only hope she will photograph our family in the future. Thank you Linda!

Linda did an absolutely wonderful job on both our engagement and wedding photos. We felt immediately comfortable upon meeting Linda which translated to the photos. Linda was very unobtrusive while still taking great shots. One of our favorite aspects of Linda's photograhy is her range of interpretation, from the more traditional to the very artistic. We have received many compliments on our photos from family and friends and couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.

We loved working with Linda and thought she was great! We were both very pleased with her on the day of the wedding and we absolutely loved the pictures! She was also a great value compared to so many other photographers out there.
She was very professional and was able to find the perfect mix of being laid back and rolling with the punches, while also making sure we kept to our schedule and got the shots we wanted on our wedding day. She arrived on time and stayed at the rehearsal until we got every shot we wanted.
The pictures of the day were perfect! They were just what we were looking for.
Overall, she exceeded our expectations and I would definitely recommend her to other brides.

Linda was absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend her! I was so impressed with the range of her photographic style. She arrived well before the ceremony so she could check out the venue and all the photographic opportunities it offered. She captured it all -- the casual pre-ceremony preparation, the unique features of the venue, the scenery both inside and out, the fleeting special and personal moments that occur throughout the day, candid shots of the guests, and of course the more traditional shots and formal posed pictures of us and our families. Plus, she has a great personality. She was laid back but energetic, easy to work with, and just plain fun. Also, she didn't have any trouble "herding the cats" when it was time to round people up for group shots. What's more, Linda really seemed like she was enjoying herself and not like she was just there to do a job. With the amount of time she spent, the awesome array of photos and unique scenes she captured, and providing a copy of all the pics and a CD....she is incredibly reasonable and worth every penny. I am ecstatic and totally happy that I chose her to photograph our wedding. Linda rocks!

Linda was a great person to work with. She made our day amazing and documented it perfectly! She met with us numerous times before the wedding to get to know our personalities and discuss the kinds of pictures we wanted. She edited all of the photos in a timely manner. They all turned out beautiful. She was very reasonable for all of the pictures, copyrights to the photos, and CD with the pictures. I HIGHLY recommend her!

We are so happy we chose Linda Rivard Photography for our wedding/engagement photographer. A good friend had used Linda for her wedding the year before and highly recommended her. We loved Linda's laid back attitude and how easy she was to work with. Linda let our wedding day truly be about us and was there to capture the special moments. Our pictures turned out great, and we have gotten many compliments on them. We look forward to using Linda Rivard Photography again in the future! I already have 1 or 2 friends using her from my recommendation!!

Then comes the excitement of getting the photos. We were so excited to see the full day of emotions captured in such beautiful photos. We would recommend her to anyone for their wedding day!
