Joe Wang from Love Life Images was our photographer for our October wedding. From the minute we met with Joe, we knew we were in good hands. I'll start with the results.... our wedding pictures are AMAZING. Seriously, THE BEST action shots I have ever seen from a wedding. You can literally feel the energy from the pictures! Somehow he managed to capture every special moment, kiss, dance, smile, laugh, all while being incognito. He was so professional and kind and phenomenal to work with, from start to end. He really went above and beyond and his work amazed us (side note to the brides... Joe got INCREDIBLE beauty shots that I wouldn't have even known to ask for! He did amazing things with my veil!). Choosing a photographer for your wedding will be one the biggest wedding planning decisions you will make, and it's one you don't want to have to worry about once it's made. With Love Life Images, there will be no worry. Just awesome images of one of your most important days. Thanks again for everything, Joe!

We hired Elisha from Love Life Images. We are 100% in love with our photos. So crisp and clear. So very happy we went with this vendor. Elisha was calm and collected and made sure all the shots were taken. Gorgeous photos we will remember forever. The photos also tell a story of the night which I love.

Jennifer is the best. When my photo booth people did not show up to my wedding Jennifer happen to be at our hotel for a bridal expo and allowed us to use her equipment, she set up a make shift photo booth and saved the day.

We hired Joe Wang plus a second photographer for our wedding about a year in advance. As it got closer to our big day we had a bunch of questions and they were super responsive and helpful. I also learned that my second photographer was Jennifer Domenick and we were also going to have another photographer as well. So we ended up with three photographers! I can not wait to see the final product, but their personalities were so relaxed and fun it was great to spend the day with them.

We chose Love Life Images because of Stephen Bobb's spectacular work at other AVAM weddings. (Easily seen on his blog or with a quick Google search.) We recommend Stephen because of his professionalism, easy, quiet confidence, and his incredible talent in photography. He and his assistant (Ingrid) captured every moment without ever getting in the way. We received our photographs in record-speed and continue to be impressed with the quality and creativity.

We love everything about Love Life and Joe Wang. Our engagement photos were amazing, and our wedding photos were just as beautiful. Joe was a wonderful presence on our wedding day, and our pictures were ready about a week before the estimated 4-6 weeks for delivery. Ann and Elisha, the staff we worked with prior to and after the wedding, were also wonderful. The photography was our highest priority, and we definitely feel like we got more than we paid for.

We plan to use Love Life Images again for all our future photography needs, and would recommend them to anyone.

We loved the photos. Stephen Bobb has a photo-journalist style so he's able to capture some amazing candid moments. When you flip through the photos, you can really see everybody having a great time. His greatest strength is also his greatest weakness. While Stephen was amazing at capturing candid moments, we were definitely lacking in the amount of staged group shots. Some of that had to do with the party being late but there wasn't enough assertiveness or direction with the group shots. Otherwise we thought Stephen and Love Life were great. Oh I do have one complaint. They mention in the contract that the digital photos will be provided within 6 months from the wedding and they really do take the entire 6 months. We had to email them to remind them that 6 months were up, almost like they were holding them for no other reason.

Love Life Images was excellent in every aspect of the word. They were very professional and responsive to the vision for our wedding. Our primary photographer was Joe Wang. Joe worked with us for both the engagement photo shoot and the wedding. The assistant for the wedding was Ann Razonski. Their creative eyes for the lens is far and beyond the competition. Their photo style is journalistic with documentary elements included uniquely telling the story of the couple and their special day. We provided our photographers with a timeline and checklist of the wedding details that we wanted captured. They followed the timeline and checklist precisely and provided creativity in every aspect. We highly recommend Love Life Images!!! We love life and Love Life Images!!! Thank you Joe and Ann!

Stephen Bobb at Love Life Images was a wonderful photographer. He was recommended to me by my husbands friend. He truly captured the spirit, fun and emotion of our wedding and I am eternally grateful. Stephen was super nice and extremely easy to work with. He also got us our pictures with lightening speed. I highly recommend Stephen Bobb at Love Life Images for any reason that you would need a photographer. I am currently trying to come up with a reason to use him again!

We were referred to Love Life Images by a friend who had hired Stephen Bobb as her wedding photographer. Having a photographer who specialized in the photojournalistic style was important to me and my husband. One of the things that impressed us most when comparing pictures on Stephen’s blog with the blogs of photographers at other companies was his use of light and contrast. We decided to do an engagement shoot with Stephen to make sure that we felt comfortable with his style. We were so happy with the results and couldn’t wait for him to shoot our wedding and reception.

On the day of the wedding, Stephen and his assistant were professional, on time, patient, and unobtrusive. They took so many amazing pictures of all the different aspects of the day and made sure that none of the special people or details of our day were overlooked. We can’t stop looking at the wedding pictures – it’s going to be so hard to decide which ones to put in the album! Thank goodness they’ll be giving us a DVD at the end with digital copies of all the pictures!

Thanks for capturing our memories to last a lifetime!

Stephen was our photographer and I just cannot say enough good things about him. The photographs are stunning and his professionalism can't be beat. He managed to capture some the most poignant moments without ever letting us know he was there. His calm nature is also lovely to be around on such an emotionally charged day. Stephen is the best in the area and I'm honored we got to work with him on such a special day!

After interviewing (at least) four different photographers, we selected Love Life Images. We were impressed initially by the quality of the samples of their work. Side by side with other professionals' work, their pictures were exceptional. We had Mary and an assistant as our team for the day. Mary went with the bridal party and the other with the groomsmen. They both proved to be extremely flexible and very creative; they had to be as we were dealing with a rainy day and people all over the place. The last thing we wanted were stodgy, generic pictures. We could not have been happier with the final product, and have heard nothing but raves from our family & friends who have seen the pictures as well. We have friends that got engaged shortly after our wedding who told us they are not even going to shop it, they are just going to hire Love Life. One word of advice: do not skimp on the photographer, you will regret it.

As soon as we met her, we knew she was the perfect fit for our wedding. Her enthusiasm rivaled other photographers we had met with.

Love love love! One of the most important parts of a wedding are the pictures that are there to remind you of it for years... not to mention to show off to all the little ones some day! We spent MONTHS looking for a photographer that we liked and when we came across Mary, it took us about 2 minutes to decide that she was the one!
Her style of pictures are exactly what I was looking for. Aside from the obligatory family shots, I really don't like the posed shots (I usually look like a doofus or totally fake in them, everytime, without fail), so her photojournalist approach was perfect. People still rave about our pictures to this day. I work for a hotel selling weddings, and if a bride ever asks my personal opinion on a photog referral, I will send them the info for Love Life every time!
For a brief moment I was going to give a 4.5/5 for value because it was a bit pricier than others that we spoke to, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Although it was more money it was TOTALLY worth it... value for the money was spot on!

I had the pleasure of meeting Mary when we were shopping around to find a photographer to capture us for our first Christmas cards in 2004. From the moment I saw her we clicked! She is incredibly gifted and down to earth. She does not try to pose you, she lets you do your own thing and captures beautiful poses.

Mary brings a lot of energy to her sessions. You can not help but to feel lifted and excited. I felt she was worth the money, I know others couples that have spent more and others who have spent less and their photos were not the same quality OR had the same attention to detail. Felt very sorry for them because at the end of the day all you have are those wonderful photographic memories.

It was a no brainer to chose her to capture our wedding ( I didn’t even shop around), she has gone on to capture our pregnancy and Liam growing up. Take a moment to meet with her and her colleagues her work speaks for itself! You will not be sorry!
