It's two weeks before our wedding and we just fired our photographer that we found on craigslist. We fired her because of god awful communication, two cancelled appointments, no bridal picture for the reception and a major attitude problem. However, now we have a wedding in two weeks and no photographer.... So out of desperation we look on Weddingwire and come across Lisa and thank god we did. After explaining the situation to her, she more than worked with us. Her turn around time was so quick and the pictures came out absolutely beautiful. Every single thing our old photographer said she couldn't do, Lisa was able to do in 1/2 the time and better. She is the most professional, sweetest and caring person. She is one of the few people that actually see you as more than just a paycheck and will do everything to make your day as special as possible. You're going to have your wedding photos forever, so why hire anybody? I'd recommend Lisa to anyone.

Lisa's time with us during our wedding was pretty great. She was very friendly during our free engagement session, but I only liked about 10-15 picutres out of almost 75. During the wedding she was on time and had a student team along with her to help like i preferred. She even let my little nephew take a few pictures to keep him occupied during the reception! I would definitely recommend her to someone who wants affordable yet professional pictures and a good experience.

Lisa and her crew were amazing! She worked with us to outline a photo package that would work well for my wife and I for both our engagement session as well as our wedding. Each shoot was so much fun and we felt so comfortable with Lisa. She is new shooting our baby girl Harper and can't wait to see the great photos of our family that she will take over the years!

Lisa is the best and would recommend her to anyone!!

Lisa is wonderful, flexible, & so much fun! She's the only photographer out there that I think truly enjoys what she does and does't charge you an arm & leg to prove that to you! When you meet with her, you'll love the 'final products' she can create to capture your big day!
