Square Root of Red took our engagement photos in April 2010. From the first email exchange with Michele, she was professional, attentive, and quick to reply. She is also friendly and flexible.

At our shoot, Michele and Lotus arrived early and scoped out some potential spots before we got there. We shot in more than half a dozen different locations in Old Town, Alexandria.

The pictures look amazing! Between their high-quality equipment, eye for capturing moments, and editing skill, our photos turned out beautiful and unique. Here are a couple of the photos on the Square Root of Red blog: http://squarerootofred.com/blog/dc-area-engagement-photos/engagement-photos-town-alexandria/.

Our family and friends can't get over the pictures. Neither can we. I highly recommend checking out this up and coming photographer!

There is nothing more important than having a vendor that shares your vision for your wedding.\r\nAnd because of that, I absolutely love Michele and Lotus.\r\n\r\nThey were kind, gracious, funny and completely committed to making my wedding images something I would cherish.\r\nI am not a posed picture sort of person, I always think I look vapid and just dumb with that frozen smile. \r\nThe photo\'s I wanted for my wedding were the ones that captured the moments and small details that made us..US...Our three year old son running around us while we danced our first dance, my turquoise wedding shoes and my husbands yellow socks, our first look, my best friends and I collapsing in laughter after a \"perfectly posed shot\", my family and friends celebrating and being beautiful..\r\n(thank god if either one got a picture of me fishing out the stink bug that flew down my dress in the middle of our vows I don\'t know about it) \r\nTheir creativity and flexibility matched our quirkiness just perfectly.\r\nMy favorite picture is of me and my husband shortly after our first look. I have the hem of my dress lifted so you can see my shoes, and he has his pants legs lifted so you can see his socks and we\'re smiling at each other. \r\nIt is absolutely perfect, and every single person who has seen it has said \"That is the coolest wedding picture I have ever seen\"\r\n\r\nIt\'s the picture we are framing to hang in our bedroom.\r\n\r\nWe love them so much, we\'re thinking of doing a \"rock the dress\" session just so we can work with them again (because NOBODY has made me look that good..ever)\r\n\r\nI cannot recommend them highly enough. Trust them with your wedding day (and engagement pics) and you will be blessed with the most beautiful, imaginative, creative images you could ever hope for. And you wont have to sell your car to afford them either ;-)\r\n\r\n

Michele and Lotus did a wonderful job with our engagement photos and our wedding. They had a huge challenge: a massive bridal party and family, and a super tight time schedule. All in all, it was great. The only things we weren't totally thrilled with is that so little of our gorgeous venue was used for the photos. Michele was a little concerned that the sun was too bright to shoot well in direct sunlight (and with so many folks to keep their eyes open it would be a challenge). So most of our pics were under some trees and not in the gardens and the grounds. But, I can say that what I have seen so far has been PERFECT, so I trust their assessment of the situation. We had also made a list of the photos we wanted so that no one got left out, but the list didn't get used on the day, so I had to try to remember in my head and some folks definitely got left out, which was sad. But I have to emphasize that given the size of our party/family and the timing, they did an INCREDIBLE job of getting fantastic photos in and getting a LOT of them. Everyone who has seen previews is in awe of the photos, and they will certainly capture every minute of your special day. They are super friendly and flexible, and the vibrancy and life in the photos is exactly why we chose them. They are also fairly priced, and they captured so much about the day that we didn't get to see from our perspective.

Michele was a pleasure to work with, from the time we first began setting up our engagement photo session, to when we received our pictures post-wedding. Her pricing was incredibly reasonable. We were thrilled to get all of our pictures in a digital format, so we could print what we wanted -- and they were delivered in less than 6 weeks! And, best of all, the pictures themselves were fantastic. I've gotten so many compliments from family and friends. Michele is incredibly talented and professional, and I would highly recommend her (and have!) to anyone looking for the perfect photographer for their wedding.

Michele was absolutely wonderful to work with! Our engagement pictures came out beautiful. I eventually used them to create a guestbook that I displayed and guests signed at our wedding. Our guests LOVED the pictures and commented about how great our photographer was. I was so lucky to find Michele and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer with a great eye. Not to mention she's a really sweet and fun person to be around.

Michele and Lotus photographed our Engagement Pictures this past Spring. I was a little nervous going into it because my Fiance and I do not like having our pictures taken; I would even go so far as to say we are not very photogenic. To my very pleasant surprise, Michele and Lotus made us feel so relaxed and natural that I didn't mind having my picture taken, I wasn't worried about the camera or the thousands of people around us as we're on the National Mall during the Cherry Blossom Festival. The Engagement Pictures shoot was a test run to see if I wanted to book with them for the Wedding, and Square Root of Red Photography passed with flying colors! Everyone who sees our engagement pictures comments on how beautiful and artistic they are....I can't wait for my September wedding to get here! I truly think Michele and Lotus both have a natural eye for photography!
