We hired Lisa based on a recommendation from the chapel we got married in. She was great at the wedding and took beautiful photos, it was after the event that was a problem. We have still not received all the wedding albums we ordered over 6 months ago many mistakes many delays, and she never gets back to you ever, and when she does she has many personal excuses as to why she has not done her job. Very unprofessional would never hire her again.

Lisa Coplen was the worst decision I made for the wedding. To start she asked for half the cost of wedding service as a deposit. This should have been the first red flag. Second red flag: she failed to respond to emails and phone calls in a reasonable manner and had a new excuse each time. Third red flag: she failed to show up to a wedding meeting that I flew in for. Final straw: she failed to show up for the final meeting two weeks prior to the wedding, which I again flew in for. She could not be trusted to show up to my wedding and I asked for my deposit to be returned. She not only refused to return the deposit but requested full payment for wedding services. I ended up taking her to court to get my money back, which I justly received. It was a nightmare and extremely stressful to find a new photographer two weeks prior to my wedding, not to mention the headache taking her to court. Do your self a favor and don’t hire her. She may have been a responsible photographer years ago but recently she seems more of a scam artist. Thank goodness for online reviews.

Lisa was amazing during the entire planning of our wedding. I knew she would be our photographer from the moment we met. We just clicked & she understood our vision. Our photos are absolutely beautiful & exactly what we had hoped for & the complete album is GORGEOUS. We appreciate everything about Lisa. She knew what shots to photograph & she wasn't one of the photographers that I've experienced at friends weddings who were annoying & "in the way." She was perfect, my guests loved her & so did we!!!! Thank you Lisa for being part of our day & for helping to create beautiful memories for us. xoxoxo

Working with Lisa was horrible. I wished I never hired her. She never answered her phone and It took a week or more to reply my email. My husband and I couldn't ever get in touch with her after took pictures for my wedding. I don't recommend anybody to use Lisa for their wedding.

Lisa was fantastic to work with. She was fun and quick on her toes. We were able to meet with her before the wedding to discuss ideas. She was very flexible in working with us as we had some pretty specific ideas about what we wanted. During the wedding, she was terrific in working with some of our more "difficult" guests. She was so patient. Her level of excitement and energy was so contagious. Lisa was even thoughtful enough to stop and buy an umbrella for me on our very rainy and wet day. Above all, her rates are ultra reasonable.

Lisa Coplen & her assistant Colleen did the photography for my 20 Sept 2008 wedding. Lisa was more than happy to work with me - and my modest budget - to assemble a package that would meet our needs (budget) and desires (pretty pictures!!). Lisa is responsive to phone & e-mail messages, has had a LOT of experience and is therefore confident and comforting when the bride is most nervous, and takes beautiful photos that are a real value for the money. They also do albums, but were able to work with us even though we could not afford to have one made. They provided extra time (hours onsite) without complaint when I asked for it just a few days ahead of time. I'm so very pleased with Lisa & Colleen & their work!
