We customize packages to suit our brides needs. As a standard, we shoot in both color and bw, and do all of our editing. From time to time, clients as us to hand color or convert images to sepia. This can easily be done upon request.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We are prepared for any/all lighting situations. Our favorite light to shoot in is ambient (where flash is not necessary.) Our goal is to provide images that reflect the way your event was truly seen. We do not bring additional lighting equipment, other than on camera flashes. When we do shoot with flash, the light is bounced for a more flattering outcome. One of our favorite outdoor lighting situations is overcast, as it provides more even lighting on skin tones.

Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We offer an hourly rate to our clients so they can customize a package to suit their needs. Most clients book 8 hours (which is considered a full day for us.)
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, overtime is available at the same hourly rate of $350 per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
One short break to eat.
Do you charge for travel?
If the travel extends beyond our local servicing area of Baltimore, Virginia or Washington DC, then yes, a travel fee is required.

For a whole year before I was even engaged, I was on Pinterest pinning photos that I knew I had to have. When I had an appointment to meet Sandi, I made sure that I had all my photos categorized and printed out because I was going to be sure that I got just want I wanted. As soon as Sandi opened the door, I felt like I had met a kindred spirit. Within five minutes of talking to her, I knew I was in the right place. By the end of the meeting, we had talked, laughed, gone over every detail, etc. I had looked through the photos she had out from other events, and I knew she was the perfect for the job. I didn't even need to show her my well planned and categorized shots from Pinterest. However, she had seen the printouts in my folder and asked me about them because she wanted to make sure I had the perfect day and the memories captured that I wanted. I told her honestly, that I felt so comfortable with her that I didn't feel I needed to show her them, but we went over them anyway. To my delight and surprise, come wedding day she had those print outs in hand. She got down to business right away. I can't believe what she was able to do in a small, not very well lighted hotel room, as my mom, my two bridesmaids, a good friend, and I were all getting ready. Throughout the whole day, she was always there when I needed her for a certain shot. I was so excited to get my photos! It took around 6 weeks, which was on the short end of what she had indicated; and it was so worth the wait. There were details that I had completely forgotten about that she captured. There were moments that I hadn't even noticed that she captured. When I looked through my photos, I felt like I was reliving the day. She captured me as a beautiful happy bride, and my husband as an ecstatic gorgeous groom. It has been so hard to choose which photos I want to hang, because so many are so awesome. I highly recommend Sandi, and would not look any further. She is someone who is following her calling.

Amazing!! My wedding was July 27, 2013...and Sandi helped make my day perfect! She is very professional but very personable as well. She makes you feel like a queen. She is so sweet to everyone she encounters! She made sure we stuck to our timeline and went above and beyond what a photographer does! When a glass broke on the dance floor...she was on her hands and knees cleaning it up....not too many photographers would do that. She was early & full of energy! She always responded to my emails throughout the planning process...and accomidated all my requests. I would highly recommened her! She is like a photography goddess! You can tell that she is very passionate about photography. She was more than "Just a photographer". Many of my guests have also commented on how amazing she was and how nice she was! Thank you for all your hard work Sandi!

Sandi is amazing. She was extremely easy to work with and captured all of my dreams through the day/night. She had to deal with military groomsmen, and did so seamlessly. She was professional, fun and made me feel absolutely beautiful. My family has used her over the years for Senior Pictures and I am so blessed to have had her at my wedding. I highly recommend her for any and all events, especially your wedding day :)

Happy planning!

There was literally no doubt in my mind who I knew my wedding photographer would be. Sandi Foraci is the absolute best photographer and an amazing woman. I couldn't have asked for someone to be more amazing to work with, she is a genius when it comes to perfecting a shot. She created some absolutely stunning memories that made everyone who has seen our wedding pictures just stare in awe. I'm absolutely sure that her entire team of photographers are just as amazing as she is. In my opinion, there is no other option than Sandi Foraci Photography!

I hired Sandi Foraci and Marilynn Spindler for our wedding day and I couldn't be happier. It was perfect to have 2 photographers -- while Marilynn was with me for the preparations, Sandi was there by my husband's side taking his preparatory photos. The entirely different perspectives and views that they both captured were amazing. I highly recommend both of these photographers for not only wedding and engagement photos, but for any portrait needs.

Sandi Foraci Photography is amazing! Sandi did the photography at my wedding and she was wonderful! She helped out with a few things that went astray and made sure that everything was beautiful for each and every picture. I loved the photo album that I ordered from her when the wedding was over. There were so may pictures to choose from and I couldn't make up my mind, because they were all so amazing. Sandi helped me to decide on which pictures would look the best in the book and what order to put them in. I love her creative eye and ability to see the beauty in everything. I have recommended Sandi Foraci Photography to quite a few friends who have all been equally as happy. Thank you Sandi!!!

One of my bridesmaids recommended Sandi to me--and I'm recommending her to everyone out there on Weddingwire. Sandi feels like part of your family; she instantly remembers everyone's name, is so helpful (she drove me and a bridesmaid from our hotel to the venue, fixed my hair mid-dancing, gave suggestions on hairpiece positioning...) and she is so discrete during the event that you are guaranteed to be surprised by some of her shots. Even though I haven't seen the final prints for my event yet, I've seen so much of her work that I know it'll be perfect.

Our photographer was Marilynn Spindler, and she did a phenomenal job! We had our wedding at Sotterley Plantation in the barn. We ended up having a heat wave that week and it was 106 degrees on our wedding day.. And there was no air in the barn at all. From looking at the shots that Marilynn was able to get, you would have no idea that we were all sweating our faces off all day. She did an amazing job at keeping everyone on schedule too. With that kind of heat, you can only imagine, everyone was all over the place. Marilynn went above and beyond to put me at ease and she made sure that I was able to get my top favorite shots before the day was over. Due to the heat, our reception ended about an hour and a half earlier than planned. I was worried about not having a lot of really good photographs to choose from because of that. However Marilynn took over 1300 shots! My husband and I are looking forward to decorating every room in our house with the amazing images that she was able to capture:)

Sandi Foraci Photography was absolutely wonderful! Throughout the entire process, Sandi was a joy to work with. She was highly responsive and professional the entire time that we worked together setting up my service agreement, answering all my questions with patience and thoroughness.
On the day of the wedding, Sandi arrived a few minutes early and gave 100% to the entire days' work. She was friendly and approachable, while still remaining professional and and responsible to assure she got all ther required shots. So many people commented to me afterwards how friendly and nice my photograher was.
Finally, when my photos arrived (only two weeks after the wedding!), everything exceeded my expectations! Sandi's work was incredible! The photos were so touching and beautiful!! Her attention to detail and creativity was amazing!

Sandi is warm and kind and wonderful- and also has a keen eye for details- in short, she is everything and more you could ask for on your big day. She made me feel completely comfortable right away. She draped her own coat over my shoulders when I was cold taking photos outside- she is that kind of person; she notices everything and she takes care of you. I knew we were in great hands- I barely noticed her at the reception- but she took so many shots that she must have been flitting about the room the whole night. Her prices are reasonable, she is very responsive and quick to prepare the photos. She takes the time to listen to what your expectations are. She is a photojournalist- the photos truly tell the story of the event. Lovely person, and very professional photos. I only wish we got a photo with her, since she was such a big part of our day. Thank you, Sandi!

She draped her own coat over my shoulders when I was cold taking photos outside- she is that kind of person; she notices everything and she takes care of you. I knew we were in great hands- I barely noticed her at the reception- but she took so many shots that she must have been flitting about the room the whole night. Her prices are reasonable, she is very responsive and quick to prepare the photos. She takes the time to listen to what your expectations are. She is a photojournalist- the photos truly tell the story of the event. Lovely person, and very professional photos. I only wish we got a photo with her, since she was such a big part of our day. Thank you, Sandi! Read less

Sandi Foraci is absolutely AMAZING!! We were so thrilled to have the opportinuty to work with her and even more amazed the day of the wedding! She made us feel at ease in front of the camera and truly captured the most sincere moments between my husband and I, and all of our guests. She is fantastic at what she does, you almost forget she is taking your picture the entire night! I would HIGHLY recommend working with Sandi to everyone, whether it's for a wedding, family photo, etc. Words cannot express how thankful we are to have worked with Sandi. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Chris & Krystal Brown

I can't say enough wonderful things about Sandi. She did my high school portraits, then she shot my wedding eight years later (plus engagement pictures AND a surprise boudoir shoot for my husband), and since then she's done a maternity photo shoot for us and next month she's doing a newborn photo shoot. If that doesn't show you how much I love working with Sandi, I don't know what will. She just takes such beautiful pictures and is probably THE nicest person ever on top of that. At our wedding, she knew the names of everyone in our bridal party after being introduced to them once, which made it feel like she was part of our family. We even had family members complimenting us on our photographer the day after our wedding (yep, she even made a good impression on our guests!). Seriously, if you need a photographer, stop searching and just go hire Sandi, you won't regret it, I promise!

Sandi was perfect for our event. She was very clear in communicating her price and policy. We told her what we wanted and she executed our requests exactly as we had asked. Actually, better than we had asked. Not only did she take spectacular photos, but she also helped guide us anytime we paused when we were unsure what to do. She looked great, everyone loved her, she took the best pictures, she was helpful, clear, flexible - I just can't imagine any way to make her service better.

She captured the neatest pictures!!

She really gives 150% and I'm so happy we were able to work with her. She's a true gem!

I've known that Sandi would be my wedding photographer even before I was engaged! We met at previous weddings, and I loved how funny and personable she was. I always enjoyed speaking with her, and when I got engaged, she was the FIRST vendor I booked. She is amazing, talented and funny! She automatically made us feel at ease for our engagement photos, and our wedding was no different. Our guests loved how fabulous she was, and I still hear what a great photographer we had at the wedding. I look at our pictures, and wonder to myself, "how on earth did she get THAT? I didnt even see her!" Sandi is amazing. You will not go wrong with her. she has a funny and calming spirit that you will WANT among all the chaos. Thank you Sandi!

Our rating for this vendor is 5/5. We were completely satisfied with Sandi Foraci’s services. Weddings are very stressful events, but the photography part was certainly not a problem. Mrs. Foraci is extremely professional, patient, accommodating, responsible and incredibly genuinely kind—have you ever dealt with sleazy, all-fake smiles, condescending reptile-vendors? Well, she’s totally NOT that type. Not to mention the quality of her photography: she is an artist, and I urge everybody to take a look at her online portfolio. Amazing images, beautiful artistic moments captured on camera for life, and she was so gentle and unobtrusive. She worked nonstop. We, the couple, were busy and we hardly remember what went on that day, but everybody tells us and we ourselves were able to notice that Mrs. Foraci did not stop a second (reservedly) circulating everywhere around the reception space capturing the guests in natural poses, immortalizing the scenery and the overall beauty & happiness of the moment. Wedding photography is not cheap: however, a serious artist like Mrs. Foraci definitely earns and deserves every penny. As promised, within only a couple of weeks after the wedding, we received our proofs via email and a CD with all the photos via regular mail. The results are truly beautiful. Since we first contacted her, she has been at our disposal for questions and problem-solving. We highly recommend Sandi Foraci. We are very grateful to her for her help, discretion, and kindness. Thank you, Sandi.

I worked with the photographer, Marilynn Spindler, for my wedding on 10/30/10 at the Oaks Waterfront Inn, Royal Oak, MD. Marilynn is a great photographer, she is so passionate about every shot she takes. She gives the full 100% when it comes to her work, she is constantly moving around trying to get all those great candid shots, but her presence is undetected. She is great at establishing a professional relationship with all the other vendors at your ceremony and venue sites . This is key, during the crazy day of the wedding! This allows everyone to work well together and to be on the same schedule. Marilynn did an amazing job with our engagement photos, they were beautiful and fun! We are all so excited to see the pictures from our wedding weekend! If you choose to hire Marilynn as your photographer you will be in great hands! Good Luck future brides!

Sandi was one of the biggest reasons our day was such a success! From the first time we met with her, I knew she was the photographer we wanted. I felt an instant connection, and told people she was what I was most excited for! She was very easy to connect with through the months of planning, and was extremely flexible and supportive of our desires and ideas. She went beyond expectations at the wedding: she was not only the photographer but also my "personal assistant", without even being asked! She told me when I needed to put on more lipstick, and when I was in the buffet line, she quietly came behind me and pinned my hair back into place. Guests did not even know she was taking pictures during the ceremony, and the candid shots she got capture every bit of emotion and joy from the day. Not only all of this: the pictures (all 1500 of them!!) were edited and ready online 4 days after the wedding. I would confidently recommend Sandi Foraci to any bride!

Everyone at my wedding, from the guests to the wedding party to the reception staff couldn't say enough about how professional and fun Sandi is. She helps you stay on time and makes sure to get those fun and different shots everyone wants on their wedding day. How she remembers everyone's names in the wedding party I will never know, but let me tell you, she never misses a beat! She is THE wedding photographer everyone must have for their wedding!

However, the professionalism and the personablness of Sandi goes over and beyond. She was ready willing and able to do anything any of us asked. She smiled when asked anything and smiled when not even asked. She is just an all around nice person. I have seen her work through friends of my sons and their photos have always been fantastic.
I just wanted to be sure to let someone know how well Sandi's services are provided and what a great person I think Sandi is.

Marilynn is an amazing photographer who I would recommend to anyone. She took our engagement photos, and our day of. She even came to our rehearsal on the Friday to capture the moment for us. She went TOTALLY OUT of her way to make the day special and she did more than ever expected. At the end of the day, Marilynn took over 2500 pictures and I was extremely happy with every picture. What more could a bride ask for?? Thank you, Marilynn & Sandi :-)

Sandi was by far the easiest decision we made when it came to wedding planning. She had photographed the wedding of some friends of ours and we were so impressed that when my sister got engaged, I recommended Sandi. Working with Sandi at my sister's wedding was so great that we didn't bother talking to any other photographers before booking her and Marilyn for our wedding. She not only takes amazing, beautiful photographs, but she's just so NICE. She's just great with people, including little kids and getting them to look at the camera and smile. Both Sandi and Marilyn went way beyond photographing - they helped with pin on boutonnieres, they helped button my dress (ladies, do not underestimate how long it will take to do all those buttons going up your back! Save at least 15-20 minutes just for that!), and even helped fix my hair whenever a bobby pin started slip out or if something didn't look quite right. Once the festivities begin, I didn't even notice they were there. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Selecting Sandi Foraci as our photographer was the absolute best wedding decision my fiance and I made. Sandi is an incredibly talented photographer - one glance at the photos on her website makes that extremely evident. We also learned in conversations with our other vendors how highly they regard Sandi and her work. But apart from her talent and stellar reputation in the industry, what really makes Sandi exceptional is the personality and professionalism that accompany her passion for photojournalism. She responded to every email promptly, she arrived an hour early to begin shooting on our wedding day, and she related well to everyone in our wedding party, having taken the time to learn each person's name so she could direct us by name for photos. Though Sandi is meticulous, she also works quickly, accommodating our request to limit pictures to a certain amount of time so we could join the reception. She is creative and fun - a delightful person to work with. Many of our wedding guests commented about Sandi and her outgoing personality and disciplined focus on capturing memorable moments throughout our several-hour reception. We knew we could trust Sandi completely with capturing one of the most important days of our lives and she did not disappoint. We offer her our highest, most enthusiastic recommendation!

Selecting Sandi Foraci as our photographer was the absolute best wedding decision my fiance and I made. Sandi is an incredibly talented photographer - one glance at the photos on her website makes that extremely evident. We also learned in conversations with our other vendors how highly they regard Sandi and her work. But apart from her talent and stellar reputation in the industry, what really makes Sandi exceptional is the personality and professionalism that accompany her passion for photojournalism. She responded to every email promptly, she arrived an hour early to begin shooting on our wedding day, and she related well to everyone in our wedding party, having taken the time to learn each person's name so she could direct us by name for photos.

They seriously made this whole processes the easiest part of my wedding. Sandi is so friendly and helpful. Marilynn was my photographer. Choosing a photographer was such a difficult thing to do and I just can't believe my luck when I found her. She really went out of her way to get to know us and to try to capture the unique aspects of our wedding through her pictures. She gave me some of the best advice with planning the wedding and even on the wedding day. And most importantly, her pictures were fabulous! I highly recommend her. In fact, my engaged friends at my wedding were coming up to me asking about her. Everyone was so impressed with her. You can tell this is her passion which is why she is so good at it.

I had the privilege of working with both Marilynn & Sandi-both women are amazing! From our initial meeting, to engagement pictures right up to the big day, Marilynn and Sandi were generous with their time and talent. On the big day, Marilynn actually came to my parents house to pick up my dress, shoes, accessories, etc. and took them to Oatlands to shoot before I even arrived!

Almost as soon as we started taking formal shots (before the ceremony) it started to rain but they kept on going- keeping me (and my bridesmaids) calm & dry the whole time! We had an hour and a half window in which the rain stopped for our outdoor ceremony/cocktail hour and they worked quickly & efficiently to get all of the outdoor shots we wanted before the rain started up again.

We have not yet seen pictures from the wedding, but I am certain that they are beautiful! I have and will continue to recommend Sandi Foraci Photography!

Wow! She is great! We were on a budget and wanted to find someone who took gorgeous pictures with flexibility and capturing moments, not choreagraphed sittings. Plus, we are not the most photogenic of people. Sandi was patient, professional and provided ideas on how to make the day happen. My hair fell and she started pulling bobby pins out of her own hair to fix mine. We couldn't be happier with our choice of Sandi!

I had the privilege to have both Sandi and Marilynn photograph us on our wedding day. They were just absolutely wonderful. I loved how they made us feel and we were so comfortable in front of them -- sometimes it felt like they weren't even there and afterward -- I knew they had probably caught the most precious moments. I can't wait to use them at more family functions and for future events. They always know just how to shoot the perfect picture.

Thank you, Sandi and Marilynn, for making our day so so special!!

Best Wishes,

I was married over 6 years ago and cannot recommend Sandi Foraci enough. I always felt so at ease and like she understood who we were as a couple and that really shows in the photos. The images she takes are not "posed" but candid and that really captured our day and events so perfectly. I highly recommend Sandi Foraci to everyone.

They turned the most ordinary views into amazing photos. Sandi strives to tell a story of your day....and that's exactly what she and Marilyn did. You can truly relive the moments when you look at the photos. Also, Jill did an amazing job at designing the coffee table book with me. She understood my crazy requests and made the book exactly what we pictured.

Sandi,

I can't say enough about Sandi Foraci. She was so professional and made our day wonderful. My guest even commented on how great she was and she did the event by herself and we were very happy with her. She worked with us because we were having financial challenges and she didn't allow that to effect our wedding. I'm deeply grateful that I had her to capture our special day and would highly recommend her to anyone who would like to capture their moments on film.

I picked Sandi because her package was the most comprehensive for the price - it included 8 hours of coverage, an album, all the negatives and a CD, online posting, along with all the proofs. Plus she had done a wedding for my friend last year and did an amazing job. The day of the wedding, she got to the house earlier than scheduled to start taking our getting ready photos. She was all over the place getting pictures and getting to know everyone (she even brushed the flower girl's hair!). She got my somewhat camera-shy fiance totally comfortable, juggled large extended family shots, and even helped pin on boutonnieres. She and her assistant were everywhere at the site getting pictures. The pictures are AMAZING! There were shots where I don't even remember her being there, but she got them. I can't stop looking at them - they're beautiful! She has been so responsive throughout the album/proofs ordering process. Sandi recently changed her pricing structure to make it even more flexible and affordable - I would recommend her highly to anyone.

As soon as I found out I was engaged, I started planning. I immediately thought of Sandi Foraci Photography, and knew that she had to be the photographer, no one else would do. I was right! I wanted an organic, natural and free feel to our images, not stiff and posed. Sandi and her team delivered just that, and her photojournalistic style was the perfect fit for us. Sandi and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with! She and her team were friendly, helpful all the while maintaining their professionalism. She was very attentive and always responded quickly to any questions that I had. At the wedding Sandi and her team were everywhere capturing images of not only us but our friends, family and guests but their presence was never intrusive! You did not even know they were there, but some how they captured every moment of the action. We were not able to be everywhere and take in all the happenings ourselves, so we loved that the moments we missed in person were captured on film. My pictures came out amazing and my friends and family constantly comment on how beautiful they are and appreciate the high quality of the images. My images still bring me to tears, and I love looking through our album and reliving "our story." I would recommend Sandi Foraci Photography time and time again.

Sandi Foraci and Marilynn Spindler were a pleasure to work with. I met with Sandi once in person prior to our event as we live in Texas and our wedding was held in Arlington, VA. We mainly communicated via email and on the phone. She was super quick in responding to my many questions and overall extremely helpful in providing an expert opinion when I needed one. On the day of our wedding they were everything you want from a photography. They were not really seen at all during the festivities. during our posed shots they were extremely friendly and just made everyone feel very comfortable. To this day we are still receiving compliments from our wedding party and wedding guests about how great they were.

Most importantly our pictures were absolutely gorgeous! The blend of posed and candid pictures were perfect. They were beautifully shot and it took us almost 3 months to narrow down which ones were our favorites. Sandi was also extremely helpful in assisting us with picking our album choices and providing some extra time to make our choices. Overall, our wedding albums were beautiful and cherished by our families.

If you are looking for gorgeous photos from a team of absolute professionals who are warm, friendly and helfpul than every penny is well spent working with Sandi and Marilynn.

I absolutely loved working with Jill from Sandi Foraci Photography. This company has three photographers and I loved that I could view their portfolios online to see which one best fit my goals for the wedding. Jill worked with us to plan feasible timing, select 'must have' photos, and plan out our day. She made great suggestions and was very flexible. Jill kept in contact with me through the downtime before our wedding and even sent us a little Thank You gift! We felt totally comfortable during our day, and Jill got great photos while being completely unobtrusive. Our photos were ready to view much sooner than expected and they were beautiful. They also took care of creating my wedding album and it was so well designed. All in all I loved working with this company and would recommend them to anyone!

Sandi was our favorite vendor on the day of our wedding! I agonized over finding the perfect photographer for our wedding day and when I came across Sandi's work on a website, I was really impressed. So impressed that I made my then-fiance drive halfway around the beltway during rush hour to meet with her. And by the time we left her home after speaking with her and reviewing her consistently high-quality photos, he was in agreement that we should hire her for our wedding day. She was so friendly, organized, and talented that we knew that even though she was slightly more expensive than we originally planned on spending, Sandi was the one to get.

When our wedding day came, I was so glad to have chosen her. She arrived early (this time she had to drive halfway around the beltway, maybe more, in the early morning) to scope out the venue and she started shooting as soon as we arrived. She took all the key photos as well as everything in-between. I don't think she stopped moving the entire day! The whole time she worked so quickly (which was handy since it ended up freezing on our wedding day), and always had a smile on her face and the most friendly disposition. She knew everyone in the bridal party's name and made us all feel at ease during the formal shots. Throughout the reception she was completely unobtrusive but always close-by and snapping away (she must have taken hundreds of photos throughout the day). I have no doubt that when we receive our pictures they will be an excellent representation of the day we celebrated.

I will edit this post when we actually receive our wedding photos, but I'm fairly certain that my edits will just be additional praise for Sandi.

It was difficult to find a good photographer in the DC/MD area that didn't cost a pretty penny. When I found Sandi Foraci's photography site, I knew these were talented photographers who worked within your budget! They like to meet the couple well beforehand in order to get a sense of their style and personality. My husband and I are pretty quiet, laidback people and we wanted a more elegant affair. They were genuinely excited about my wedding day look. Their artistic focus is in every one of our photos. In addition, our photographer was immensely helpful and supportive during the day of the wedding! These are talented photographers!

Sandi Foraci is awesome! She protographed my sister's wedding a few years ago and was so wonderful - as a person and as a photographer - that when I got engaged she was the only photographer I called! When we were late to the ceremony because of traffic and the limo getting lost, Sandi calmed me down and took care of everything. When our limo's AC wasn't working, Sandi let my husband and I drive around DC in her own car so that we wouldn't melt. We have some gorgeous pictures from near the Smithsonian Castle as a result. The pictures of our wedding are beautiful and I can't say enough about how wonderful a person Sandi is!

I could not have asked for more. Sandi was responsive, amazing, creative - and the quality of our photos are exceptional. None of the pictures look posed - and while we did not even notice that she and her assistant were there, they captured all 250 friends and family, giving us a complete record of the event.

Sandi was our wedding photographer. She is very personable and willing to work with whatever we wanted. She came an hour early to our wedding to check out the venue and find spots to photograph us. She even helped put the boutineers on the guys! She actually loved our venue and couldn't stop talking about it! She is a very busy woman, which means she is highly recognized in the southern maryland community. She is good at taking candid/photojournalistic pictures, but I really liked her pictures of us as well (posed)! She seems to enjoy natural pictures where she doesn't do a whole lot of staging, which turn out really well.
Sandi is very good with the guests and she was definately one of them.
It's always good to hear when your photographer had fun, that means you're pictures should turn out the same :) (They turned out well).
If you can afford it, book two photographers. That way you get everything. We couldn't afford it, but would have liked to have had pictures from our cocktail hour while we were off taking pictures.

Hiring Marilynn Spindler of Sandi Foraci Photography as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Marilynn is so sweet and personable that we couldn't help but to feel at ease around her, even in front of the camera! Her style is so unobtrusive, yet she never missed a single shot. We couldn't have been more pleased with how our pictures turned out. They were absolutely gorgeous! Thanks to Marilynn one of our pictures was chosen to be featured in a bridal magazine! We will never forget how great it was to work with Marilynn and would recommend her to anyone!!

Jill Springer was the photographer at my wedding. She was WONDERFUL. After speaking with Jill about what I was looking for in a photographer - she hit the mark in capturing the shots I was really looking for. Her pictures are displayed throughout my house. The turnaround time was incredible. Under a week and a half to get the link to my photos and I LOVE that all of their services are ala carte rather than having to commit to a package.

List every picture you want taken (and not just the formal pics) throughout the day. We didn't think of it because we thought it was going to be done, but we thought we would see pictures of our mothers and grandmothers being escorted down the aisle. It was a little disappointing, but it was also our fault for assuming. There were some minor miscommunications (not on the wedding day though thankfully!), but overall communication was good. I would recommend this photography company to another bride.

We worked with both Marilynn and Sandi. Both were professional. Marilynn was very attentive and enthusiastic. She was with us (bride & groom) the majority of the time and took pictures of the bridal party. She was great about her recommendations for poses. Sandi primarily took pictures of the guests. The pictures were high quality. We got close to three thousand pictures. Some were redundant and some were blurry. Overall, we were happy with the service and the pictures. We would recommend them.

shocked at the stellar reviews here. Marilyn @ Sandi Foraci was very pleasant to talk to during the planning and showed great examples of capturing lots of guests in a natural but joyful manner, but my photos were a disaster. Marilyn didn't bother taking more than a couple pictures of the whole seated roomful of guests at the ceremony, didn't shoot most of them at the reception unless to capture the backs of heads, arms over other peoples' faces, etc, and took possibly hundreds of shots of myself and hubby with whoever we were talking to cut off in the pictures! We told her that aside from a *couple* nice shots of us, we wanted her there to capture our guests' smiles! There's a LOT of pix of our waiters (?!? we told her that we picked the place for the food, so ok, take ONE shot of the meal, but multiple of all the staff?) and artwork at the venues that we couldn't care less about, and yet one table of my friends isn't in there at all. The posed pics went poorly, the background color is overwhelming us even though my friends' basic cameras took pics with much better color. My pushy inlaws after the ceremony and at the reception actually hijacked Marilyn into taking shots of just them for a while and trying to butt in to a lot of other pix, I had warned her that there'd be some sort of nonsense and she assured me that she knew she was working for me, but when they acted up, Marilyn asked me what i wanted to do in front of everyone so i had no choice. she also is very into bridal glamour shots which i know depends on your taste. i was ok with a few but when i told her it was going on too long, to go take pix of the guests instead, and i knew already that the shots weren't flattering, she kept cajoling me into more even though i knew it was a waste. The shots of the dance floor are ok, she got into the mix of things well and the shots are a mix of infocus and blurry that actually work for the action. I guess if you want the modern, purely candid approach, and want to spend part of your day doing glamour shots of yourself or think awkward candids are funny/awesome, she will indulge this at length. If you want proof of every one of your friends' appearances from halfway around the globe, have a checklist of musthaves/do not takes, like semiposed big smiles, move on.

Sandi Foraci Photography responded with the following comments:

I have a hard time responding to a review like this one. For starters, it’s an anonymous review. Our clients mean so much to us: Jill, Marilynn and myself. If we ever had the sense that our clients weren’t happy, we would personally do everything we could to make things right. It’s just the way we are. Since 1998, we’ve never seen a review such as this. This bride has made a lot of specific and harsh comments…. none of them sound like choices Marilynn would make. She's very thoughtful when she's shooting and her work ethic is incredible. I even took time to review the event (that I thought this review stemmed from.) I’m confident she gave everything she could to this client. Marilynn does everything she can to be sure her clients are 110% satisfied. She listens to her brides as individuals, she never assumes she knows what they want…she asks. So to see someone so dissatisfied, sadness me. Mainly because it seems that there must have been an expectation from our bride that wasn’t communicated to the photographer. As the owner of the company, and a personal friend of Marilynn’s, I’m not at all ”shocked at the stellar reviews” given to Marilynn…as this bride mentions. The reviews listed by brides on this site (and others) are the “NORM”…. because Marilynn really does follow through each and every time she is booked for an event. I’m completely confident in her ability to make our clients happy, and if this bride you would like to contact me directly, I’d be happy to do my best to remedy this situation as she sees it. Best regards, Sandi

I also am saddened by this review. I am sad that this bride has never contacted me directly to express these concerns and given me an opportunity to address them. I worked very hard on this short event. I worked additional hours (at no additional cost), staying well past contractual time to be sure I could do everything in my power to meet the expectations of the bride. I feel I represented every aspect of this event very well, with over 1400 images posted after edits. The reality is I cannot shoot what didn't happen and what wasn't there. But despite this disappointment (for she AND I) there are plenty of wonderful images from the entire event that would make a terrific album equal to any I shared with her in our meetings. If she would contact me, I would love to design such an album for her. I plan to post some of her images on the website and use them in publications. I would also be happy to share this event with any clients that may have concerns raised by her review. I stand by and am proud of my work. Sincerely, Marilynn
