My wedding hasn't yet happened, so I will update then, but after meeting with Lainie, I am very impressed. First of all, there was a misunderstanding about when/where we were meeting, and she went out of her way to come meet us in person when she wasn't feeling well. Our conversation went very well, and I felt like she was really trying to get a sense of what we wanted and what would work for us, which was important to me, since my family has had experiences in the past with feeling bullied by photographers. Looking forward to the wedding!

Lanie and her assistants were absolutely wonderful! We had two photographers and the video booth. All of our pictures turned out beautiful and we couldn't be happier. Our guests loved the video booth and it's a great keepsake from the wedding.

The photos that we have from our wedding are beautiful. However, on the day of our wedding Lanie came in and told me a lot of the photos I had posted on my pinterest board involved a veil and she didn't understand why if I wasn't wearing a veil. I was a bit confused and told her if any had a veil then it was the pose I liked and not the veil. Some of the first shots she had me do she said were based on what she said she saw from my pinterest board which I did not recall, but hey, I had a million things going on and didn't think to question it. Unfortunately, I looked at my pinterest board the day after the wedding and saw she must have looked at a different brides board because many of the poses we had done were not on my board. It sounds easy to fix in the moment, but when the wedding is happening, it's hard to stop and say let me show you my board especially when you dont have a phone handy.
My only other issue was that many of the photos focus on people on the dance floor which are lovely but the older people at our wedding who were sitting at the tables were hardly photographed other than their one table shot if at all if they didn't get up to dance. My husband and I were not on the dance floor that much as we were trying to get around to all guests and we wished it least one of the photographers had followed us to get candids of that as we are hardly in those dancing shots.
The shots Lanie did capture are very nice though so we are pleased with what she did capture. We just wish it had been a but different.

The Crystal Lenz responded with the following comments:

Thank you Lisa for you review! I am sorry to hear you had some poses you would have preferred to do at your wedding. We had the Pinterest board on our phone with us while we were doing them that way should we have not done the correct poses we could have fixed that easily right away. If only someone had told us while doing them! I am sincerely sorry and I will make note in the furture to show the board we are using to the bride as soon as I get there in case it is not her board! We have a large Pinerest group and this could easily happen so I appreciate your notes. I am happy that you were pleased with your photos beyond the board and I hope you come back again for family shots in our studio at Morningside Inn.

Amazing photography. Lanie has great ideas and always takes wonderful pictures. We had her and John do our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. Were obsessed with them and have them hanging all over the house. The sessions were so much fun and so worth it!

Lanie and her team were absolutely wonderful! They went above and beyond for us. It was so fun working with them because they were enthusiastic and supportive of everything. I loved that we had one photographer in the brides room and one in the grooms room while getting ready, they really captured some amazing moments! They remembered to take all of the pictures we requested, even when we forgot! Lanie was so kind and sent us several pictures early (a week after the wedding) to use for our Thank You cards. We really appreciated that! We are looking forward to receiving our images and keeping in touch with such nice people!! Thanks for everything :)

After interviewing several photographers, Lanie was our choice hands down!! She takes the time to know you and know what you like. She is very creative, organized and offers up great advice and ideas. She and her assistant Melanie were fabulous on wedding day!! Took us through everything with NO stress! Since she works right there with morningside, she knows the staff and venue well, which made for a very stress free and smooth day. It was like having a friend take our pictures. Love her :)
