It all starts with the perfect engagement session that will show the world why you are so perfect for each other. If you feel traveling to a different city or country will best tell the story, Poly will follow you with camera in hands.

On your wedding day... all the details you so carefully chose will get captured: Your dress, your shoes, your jewelry, your beautiful cake, the awesome band... The moments you don't ever want to forget will get captured: the first time you see each other, the look of your loved one as you walk down the aisle, your first kiss, your first dance as husband and wife...

The very next day (or whenever)... Poly thinks you should celebrate your marriage and life together with a perfect "Day After" session.

And on the next few days after your wedding... the beautiful flowers will fade, your delicious cake will be gone, and your gorgeous gown will get stored in a box in your closet. Your stunning pictures, however, will bring all your memories back for years to come.

**Poly is available for travel worldwide.

"My perfect bride knows that years from now, her wedding pictures will be all she will have to remember her wedding day. She sees photography as true art. She hires me because she loves the way I see the world and knows the pictures I take will make her smile and evoke the truest of emotions." Read less

We heard from many couples that investing in a great photographer is one of the most important decisions when planning a wedding. Therefore, we spent quite a bit of time combing through the work of various photographers in the Twin Cities. There were many talented photographers with beautiful portfolios, but there was just something special about Poly's photography that set her apart from the others. I don't know how else to describe it other than she just has a natural-born talent for picking the right lighting, the right details, and the right moments.

We had Poly photograph both our engagement and wedding pictures and we couldn't be more happy with the results. If you're like me and worry about not being photogenic, let me tell you, she must have a magic camera, because her shots made us look like celebrities! We've received so many compliments on our photos, not just from family/friends, but from other vendors in the wedding industry. On top of her incredible talent as a photographer, she is so easy and fun to work with. I can't wait to have her photograph our next milestone!

We are so happy that we chose Poly to be our photographer and you will be too!

From the moment that I met Poly, I knew that her friendly and professional persona combined with her creative eye would make my engagement and wedding day photos a success! Poly has a very easy-going demeanor all while being able to move the session along in a timely fashion. We were all in Mexico separately for vacation and she volunteered to do our engagement session while we were all down there! She knocked out an engagement photoshoot in 45 minutes in a really cool and creative background which my husband especially liked since he's not big on taking photos. As for the wedding, she kept the portraits very natural by giving everyone funny things to think about or discuss. During the whole ceremony and reception, we didn't even know she was there! When we received the photos back though, it was clear that she managed to capture every detail and feel of the day. Poly checked in with us at the end of the night to be sure that we got every picture we wanted which is nice. We received all of the photos back within just a few weeks with sneak peeks on her blog the very next week after the wedding! I can safely say that Poly will be our lifelong family photographer. She has become a friend and is truly one-of-a-kind to work with. She stays up on photography trends and is always looking to learn new tricks to make her photography stand out from the rest. I promise you will not be disappointed with your photography session!

Poly is just FABULOUS!! I cannot say enough great things about her! She had shot my sister's wedding, as well as people's children I know, and I have always loved and admired her work. Her style is exactly what I was looking for. Her photography is natural, relaxed, fun, and effortless looking, but she puts a lot of effort and thought into it. She is SO easy to work with and goes with the flow, plus she is SUPER efficient and gets everything done quickly, so as not to waste any of your precious time with her. She has an eye for setting up the perfect shot and the lighting is always gorgeous. My wedding was outdoors, but you would never know that there wasn't any professional lighting and a million people helping her...she is just that good! She was very flexible whenever setting up times to meet and shoot, outside of the wedding day, and even hand delivered my wedding album to my house, not to mention she is just a really fun, sweet, interesting person, but also very professional. I also loved how she posted pictures from my engagement and wedding shoots to her blog; they are fun to share with friends and family. On top of all that, she puts your photos on a flash drive and/or CD-rom and ALSO posts all the files on drop-box for you. She makes everything so easy and you get AMAZING photos. Truly, the quality of her work beats most wedding photographers I've seen and the quality ranks with the most expensive photographers out there, but at a much more reasonable price. Every dollar you spend will be WELL worth it and you will be so pleased with the results!!

Poly is an amazing photographer! She knows how to capture people, and puts her own unique spin on all pictures that she takes. She is extremely professional and was always willing to be flexible to meet our schedule. She is extremely easy to work with and always makes you feel comfortable. We received many, many comments on our engagement and wedding photos and could not be happier with them!

I would rate Poly Mendes a 10 if I had a option. Poly and her assistant captured our day to exceed our expectation while providing unique beautiful photos. Poly's organization of our event requests provided a day which met all of our requirements as defined. Her business and photography skills provide : organization of shots, capturing the moment, capturing the personal story of the photo or person she's trying to catch in the moment, detail and more detail with absolute perfection. She made our day so easy and left me to trust her completely knowing I would be happy with no stress to me. She is a professional whom I highly recommend.

Poly has a great eye and captured details at my wedding that I would have otherwise missed. She captured so many great moments that I'll be happy to relive through her photos. Working with her was easy. She was very flexible with her schedule and responsive to emails. We loved the engagement photos she took as part of our package so much we used them on our Save The Dates and loved all of them.

Although, we did not get photos of our Grooms Dinner as we agreed to in our contract Poly was very accomodating and provided us with enough credit to get a beautiful album made. Her services are worth every penny. We have all copyrights to our photos - Thank Goodness. She took so many great shots. Now we don't have to choose which ones to purchase because we own each and every wonderful memory.

Thanks Poly!

Beyond Impressed! Poly is absolutely amazing. She captured the true beauty of us in every photo. We are still getting compliments every time we see someone post wedding. We have had friends/family/complete strangers asking for her card. She is extremely easy to work with and the true meaning of a professional. We have been to many weddings where the photographer is there to take pictures. Poly creates art. It was a treat to have Poly as our photographer and we will be using her again for future photos!
