I am so excited to have booked Victoria for our wedding. Not only is her photography top-notch, she has already proven herself to be very professional and on the ball. She also has a great, friendly personality. I know she will capture moments that may otherwise be lost in the chaos of the day. I love that I don't have to worry if weather conditions change or if the day throws us similar curve balls- I am confident Victoria will be able to adapt. That peace of mind is so amazing; if you want that, too, I highly recommend booking Victoria Sprung for your wedding.

Victoria and her team photographed our wedding this past September 2015. My wife and I knew it was a good fit from our first meeting several months earlier. Victoria was extremely professional and approachable right from the start. Since we had no experience hiring a photographer before, she made things very clear about how the process goes and how she would approach our wedding day. It felt more like chatting with a friend than a stranger, which was a great feeling to have when you're trusting someone with your wedding day! She discussed at length how she prides herself on photojournalism rather than set poses. This was exactly what we were looking for :) We loved the idea of not only looking back to pictures of our vows, cutting the cake, and our first dance but also our guests' reactions to everything going on around them. The results were ASTOUNDING. When looking at the photos we struggled to even call them photographs because the team captured so much more than just a picture-- the word doesn't even begin to cover the emotion, joy, happiness and perspective that they captured. They got every "necessary" photograph and every surprise in between. Every single moment they captured of our guests and ourselves was incredible- especially when you think that these moments happened in seconds- and she was able to capture them for a lifetime. We were blown away with everything Victoria and her team captured, both posed and surprised. We are overjoyed that she literally knew nothing about us and somehow managed to capture every emotion we felt that day. We also feel we gained some new friends :) Thank you Sprung Photo for your dedication to the most important day of our lives.

I must start off by saying Victoria is a great person, very professional, and clearly passionate. However, the bottom line is this: I was really disappointed with a lot of the pictures we received. When we met with Victoria she told us that her photography style is photojournalistic (meaning an emphasis on candid photos), however she said she understood the fact that weddings also have a lot of people and a lot of family involved which means taking some quality formal posed photos as well. However, I do not feel like she delivered on the formal shots at all. In all honesty I was a little heartbroken when I finally got the pictures.
Victoria does not give direction. If you’re looking for someone to say, “Can you put your arm around her? Tilt your chin up. Can you lean in a little more? Everyone smile. Everyone look serious. Kiss her cheek” Etc… you will not get that with her. Not even a little. All of my bridesmaids commented on the fact that they didn’t know how to stand or what to do and felt like they got zero guidance. And this is obvious in the pictures. In *ONE OF ONLY TWO* full group shots she took two of our couples are standing in that “prom pose,” (guy behind the girl with his arms on/around her waist), two couples are linking arms, and two are just standing next two each other with no idea what to do. A hint of guidance, (“Everyone link arms!”) would have gone A LONG way.
Another thing I feel the need to mention is Victoria is not very detail oriented. She only took two pictures of me and all my bridesmaids in the morning and she forgot to have us get our flowers, which where one of my favorite parts. Also things like in the biggest group shots, she has the shortest bridesmaids standing directly behind the tallest jr. bridesmaid. It looks messy and stupid.
Ultimately, if I could go back and change one thing about my wedding, I’d hire a different photographer.

Victoria Sprung photographed our June 2015 wedding and we could not have been more thrilled with our experience working with her from start to finish. My fiancé and I scheduled an initial meeting with Victoria and knew immediately that she would be our wedding photographer. Not only were we obviously impressed with her work, but she also has a fun and welcoming personality that made us both feel comfortable and excited to work with her from the start. We decided it would be a good idea to have an engagement photo session to get practice being "natural" in front of the camera. This also gave us the opportunity to spend some time with Victoria before the big day. Victoria made us laugh throughout the entire shoot, and gave us ideas on how to be natural and enjoy the time, instead of being nervous in front of the camera. Once we saw our engagement photos, we were even more eager to work with her for the actual wedding day. She is also a huge animal lover and did a great job capturing our dogs in the engagement shoot, too (not an easy task)! A few months later it was June and wedding day! Victoria and her team were professional, prompt, and so much fun to spend the day/night with! Both Victoria and her second shooter were so excited about the photo possibilities and were eager to try new shots - their excitement was contagious. We traveled throughout the city for a few hours to different photo locations, then had family photographs back at the hotel before the ceremony. Victoria and her team kept things running smoothly and on time, and made the entire experience stress free. Victoria sent us a couple photo previews just hours after the wedding - to say they are amazing does not do them justice, and we cannot wait to see the rest! Victoria is a true professional - from her communication and follow-through during the wedding planning process, to the detail and thought she puts into capturing every image - she gets the job done and exceeds expectations along

Hiring Victoria and her crew was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. I had extremely high expectations for Victoria based on looking at her past work, but even then, she blew my new husband and me out of the water. From beginning to end, she was perfect...

Victoria helped us figure out the logistics for our day to make sure the timing would run smoothly, and got to know us in advance of the wedding so she could get a sense of our style. She checked in regularly in advance of the wedding so I knew everything would be under control. The day of the wedding, her incredibly sweet, fun, yet highly professional crew were wonderful. They were tactful with my divorced parents---handling family photos without making anyone feel awkward. I know from reviewing the photos after the wedding that they were at all the key moments, but they were able to be subtle and discreet so I did not know they were there. I think for the first look with my dad, they literally hid behind the curtains! Then, when I got the photos... my husband, my entire family, and I were blown away. They did a great mix of creative shots and more traditional ones, and the composition was incredible. The first comment everyone made on seeing my wedding photos was asking about my photographer. They used lighting to really capture the intimacy, coziness, and joy of the evening. Looking at the photos now brings me back to the best day of my life, and I credit a large part of that to how well Victoria and her team captured it.

If you are considering Victoria for your wedding, I can only suggest that you stop looking, stop worrying, and hire her! You won't regret it.

Victoria photographed our winter wedding this past February and we could not be happier! (One of the photos of us even won an award.)
Our getting ready, first look, and bridal party photos are so, so beautiful. She was the only photographer I spoke to who was actually EXCITED about photographing outside in the snow and the photos show it. The afternoon was fun and relaxed and she helped keep everything running on schedule.
When we got to the venue we breezed through the MANY, MANY family photos, which is exactly what I had asked for. If the most important photos to you are large group, formal, posed photographs, then maybe Victoria isn't the best choice. But if you are like me, you have a large family and want to make sure everyone gets their moment, but you can't handle more than 30 minutes of saying "cheese!" with every aunt, uncle, and cousin-in-law on the planet, then she's your woman!
After we got into the bridal suite to get ready to walk down the aisle, I honestly can't remember Victoria or her assistant's presence until the end of the night, but you would never know that from the photos. Our ceremony and reception were documented in breathtaking detail as well as expansive shots from every angle -mostly candid and photojournalistic - which, again, is exactly what I asked for. We had live band karaoke and Victoria made so many of our friends and family look like rock stars! Now that we are finally deciding which photos to print and put into a book it's incredibly difficult to pare down.
Bottom line: we absolutely loved our wedding day experience and the (1000+) photos we received. Would recommend.

Victoria did an fantastic job at our wedding, she truly captured "moments" not just family portraits and such.

You can tell right away that she is an experienced wedding photographer and has done many weddings and worked with various personalities/couples. I was in a very laid back "I'm just going to let the day happen" mode and Victoria did a great job of letting the bus driver know where we needed to be and directed my family/wedding party during the planned photo shots. She took the lead without being overbearing or anything (she is very easy going and easy to work with), she managed to wrangle in my goofy wedding party and capture some really great photos. I also let her know ahead of time that my husband and I take "awkward" photos and she did a nice job directing us without saying "hey, look like you love each other" - haha.

Victoria is well organized, she sent out an easy questionnaire (all info that us as brides already have plus asks us our creative portrait locations), she also provides suggestions for places to shoot in case you're unsure or need ideas, which really helped. She also knew which sites were under construction. Shortly after the questionnaire she sends a detailed timeline for the day (which I and my wedding coordinator ended up using as a skeleton/basis for the overall timeline for the wedding party and vendors).

All the 1000+ photos are amazing and I have received MANY compliments on them.

Victoria and her team photographed our October 2014 wedding and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We planned the wedding long distance so I didn't meet her until the day of the event, yet she still made me feel extremely comfortable and she did a great job organizing all of the details ahead of time by phone.

My husband and I felt like she took the time to understand what type of photos we wanted and all of the pictures came out great!! The hardest part now is picking out our favorite ones!
