Loren and her team took our engagement and wedding photos and all I can say is "wow"! Sharing the photos with friends and family was effortless through the online gallery that Top Banana Photography provides. And once we started sharing our photos, the compliments on the quality, creativity, and ability to depict my husband and I's personalities started tumbling in. Loren took the time to review the ideas we had for our engagement/wedding sessions and made sure to get photos of our must-have shots as well as bring her own creative eye to the sessions. The wedding photos captured so many amazing moments of the day and we are grateful to have such a beautiful collection of photos to preserve our memories of the day. Working with Loren was a breeze (especially since Husband and I are NOT comfortable being in front of a camera - we were quickly put at ease). We will definitely be using Top Banana Photography in the future!

Quality of Service: -We didn't get all the shots on our must-have list that Loren requested the week of my wedding. We didn't get very many posed photos of just my husband and me. Also wish she played with the neat aspects of our venue, and the architecture more; most of our shots were in the same location.

Responsiveness: Most replies via email were received 2 days after, never heard back when tried to order album

Professionalism: Positive first meeting-she answered questions and went through the contract with us. Wish she were more assertive on the day of the wedding. At one point, Loren wanted to take some pictures and we asked if we could do it later because we wanted to hang out with everyone and not miss our wedding. I wish she would've told us flat out that if we put them off, we wouldn't get those shots-then we would've done them! My husband also wishes she gave some guidance on posing shots of him when he was getting ready.

Value: You get what you pay for. Although she was more affordable, we regret not getting many pictures of just the two of us. Or of my husband. We were also under the impression that her husband was her second photographer for shots she wouldn't be able to take (husband getting ready), but that was not the case. If I were to do it all over again, I'd pay for 2 photographers.

Flexibility: Loren allowed us to exchange some items in her package for others.

Loren was easy to work with-my advice to future brides is to make sure you tell her exactly what you want-including any unflattering sides you may have! I would definitely want a second photographer for a wedding. All that being said, the pictures we received from her were very good, and we enjoyed reliving our wedding again. :)

Loren has to the best photographer out there! I am not the most photogenic person and I always feel awkward in front of the camera, but Loren was able to make me comfortable and captured amazing pictures of everyone at my wedding. Everyone loved her and she has this ability to make you feel like the most important person in the world during your wedding. I can't wait to use her again!

Normally I would never rate a service with all "fives" because there is always room for improvement. This is the exception. My wife and I were ecstatic with the level of service, professionalism, friendliness, and overall quality of work that Loren provided. She has outstanding attention to detail and truly makes her subjects feel at ease during the photo shoots. She has a knack for capturing the natural flow of the evening (for our ceremony and reception) and does not miss any moment. Loren listens to your recommendations/preferences/interests and incorporates those things into her shoots. I would highly recommend her.

Loren is FANTASTIC! She makes it feel like you are the only client she has when she's with you, and her work exceeded all of my expectations. She was timely in getting the pictures edited and I could see the thought that went into them. She is a professional, and I consider her photographs the best investment I made for the wedding.

We have recommended Topbanana to everyone we talk to that may need a photographer. She is very talented, professional and does what she can to make sure your pictures turn out just the way you want them. I feel lucky to have gotten to work with someone so talented and will definitely use Topbanana in the future when I need a photographer.

Great quality photos for a good price, and Loren was really fun to work with! I thought I'd feel really awkward and wasn't looking forward to taking pictures, but she made it fun and comfortable. She got several really awesome shots, and does really nice editing as well. I couldn't be happier!

Loren is an incredibly sweet person. She makes you feel very comfortable. She's also one of the hardest working people you'll ever meet and is not afraid to get a little dirty in order to get the good shot. We love all of the pictures she took of our wedding, engagement photos, and even my bridal portraits. My family has even expressed how breathtaking some of the pictures turned out and many pictures have brought tears to our eyes because they are so good! My husband and I fell in love with her and now see her as more than a photographer-she's a friend! She will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Loren is not just an incredibly talented photographer, she is also one of the nicest people I've met. She really went above and beyond for our wedding and delivered absolutely incredible photos. Loren is a lot of fun to work with, and makes the whole experience really easy and carefree. Coming from someone who set their wedding date around when Loren was available, I would highly recommend Top Banana as a photographer.

Loren is by far the best photographer! If you are a bride like me who values amazing and unique wedding pictures you MUST HIRE LOREN!! I looked at so many websites looking for my wedding photographer and no one really stood out until I saw topbananaphotography.com. I took my brother with me who is a photographer, and after our meeting he said "You have to hire her!" She is not only an amazing photographer, she is also very professional, dependable, and fun to work with. Her prices are very competitive and worth every penny. This is not the area you want to skimp on in your budget. My photos and my dress were the most important thing to me when planning my wedding because they will be what I have left to look at for years to come. Loren did not let me down. She captured amazing images of my dress, husband, and family and the emotions of the day. My pictures are priceless and I am so thankful for the beautiful pictures Loren took. They are more than pictures they are works of art.
