The Goodness is true to their name.... the husband/wife team of Geoff & Lisa were spot on in capturing the moments and highlights of our wedding. They are an artistic, creative, and a little bit quirky (in a wonderful way) team. We were lucky, LUCKY to have them be our photographers for our wedding. We researched for hours photographers (quality of photos, styles, etc) and they were the only ones we wanted to go with in Northern California. It won't be long and the word will be out about how great the work of The Goodness is and it will be difficult to hire them for a wedding. (We got their last available weekend summer booking!)

Geoff & Lisa had a sit down meeting with us to get to know each other and to make sure they would be a good match for us. They took the time to listen to our wedding wants/needs/vision. I felt heard!
Included in their package offerings is a free engagement session ~ no strings attached. It was perfect. We got to see their work of us PRIOR to getting married; which was beautifully done. It also allowed us to make additional requests and sparked other unique ideas and poses.

On the day of the wedding, Geoff captured photos of the guys getting ready and Lisa the girls. The duo partnership they had brought the entire day together full circle ~ no splitting time with one group for the other. During the ceremony, I didn't even notice they were there! They blended in nicely with our family and friends.

I could go on for days of how wonderful Geoff & Lisa are. Just know, The Goodness photography pops with color and richness, is creative, and timeless. You can't go wrong with them.

Lisa and Geoff are amazing! It was great to have a husband/wife duo because Lisa was with the girls and Geoff was capturing the boys getting ready. Geoff was a lifesaver- fixing all of the boy's boutineers and pocket squares! They both also prepared and knew everyone's name's ahead of time! They go above and beyond to make sure you get all of the pictures you want. We will be recommending and using Lisa and Geoff for any future pictures!!

Lisa also desiged my save the dates, invitations, and programs! She listened to my ideas, and then created something amazing! Having custom-made invitations made our wedding much more personalized. Lisa would give us a few different ideas, and would even make edits when needed. Lisa has a great talent for design!

We had an amazing experience with The Goodness! Geoff and Lisa are a great husband and wife photographer team. They did both our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! They are great to work with but also maintain a high level of professionalism. The photos received from our engagement session and wedding speak for themselves. The compliments received from family/friends were only positive. We also used their Shot Spot feature at our wedding and our guests had a great time creating photo keepsakes! Our experience overall with Geoff and Lisa was nothing but the best and have since recommended them to our other engaged friends!

It was awesome working with the Goodness during our wedding planning. Our guests raved about how creative and unique our save the dates were, and the invites helped tie together our theme. Lisa and Geoff are not only great photographers they are great people! They fit right in with all of family and friends leaving us with amazing photos, and leaving our guests with the impression that we had been friends with our photographers for years. We couldn't have asked two better people to capture our day!

Lisa and Geoff did an amazing job for our wedding! Our photos are beautiful, and capture the day so well! Some people were telling us we would regret not having a videographer, but with their photos we really did need it at all!

Lisa also designed our logo, invitations, place cards and thank you cards. This made such a difference in how put together the wedding looked.

My wife and I used The Goodness for our wedding and engagement pictures and couldn't have been more pleased! To say that our friends are jealous...not only of the quality of the pictures we received but also the quantity...is an understatement. Geoff and Lisa, a married tandem with seemingly unending creativity and attention to detail, blew us away with our engagement/wedding photos! And not only that, they were a BLAST to work with...fun, quirky, and enjoyable combined with the professionalism to get the right shots and the right times without being invasive at the wedding ceremony or reception...you would be wise to enlist their expertise for your next photography needs!

Although they don't know it yet, when the time comes a few years from now, we'll be back in touch with them to take our first baby pics. But for now, we'll just continue to brag about their work, show off our pictures, and refer as many friends as we can to The Goodness to document all of life's most memorable instances!

As I searched for a wedding photographer I thought maybe I had impossible standards. I interviewed five different photographers and visited about 40 websites before meeting with Geoff and Lisa. The moment I visited their website I knew I had found Sacramento's best photographers. Then after meeting with them I was even more impressed as I found that they are innovative, friendly, and professional. On the wedding day they worked professionally, efficiently and with such joy. Our engagement and wedding pictures far exceeded my expectations. I am so proud of my pictures! Lisa and Geoff were a joy to work with, I never expected to treasure my pictures as much as I have. Thank you Geoff and Lisa for all your hard work!

Our experience with The Goodness was amazing. To start, our engagement session was absolutely awesome. Lisa and Geoff traveled to San Francisco and obliged in shooting us in multiple locations in our hood and around the city. Next, Lisa designed our wedding invitations and RSVP cards. Her prices were more than reasonable and she really captured the look we wanted right off the bat! Finally, Lisa and Geoff flew across the country to Boston, MA where our wedding took place. They not only understood and captured the vision of our day, but were great keeping the timeline of the wedding on track as well. It was truly a wonderful experience working with them and I'd recommend them to anyone. The quality and artistry of the photos is unprecedented!
