The only time we are not shooting is during dinner, guests get very upset if you take a picture while they are eating. A meal is always appreciated. We have very long days and just a short break is definitely welcome.

My husband and I were married at Valley Crest Farm and Preserve in Lebanon, NJ. We fell in love with the amazing landscape of the farm and knew we would need a photographer who could capture its beauty. We ourselves are an artistic couple with an appreciation for all photography but are not comfortable having our own picture taken. When we met with Cheryl, we knew right away she would be the perfect fit for our special day. We immediately felt comfortable with her warm, calm personality and her impressive style in her albums. Cheryl was extremely professional and prepared as she met us at the farm prior to our wedding day to check out the beautiful landscape. When our special day arrived, Cheryl and her assistant were amazing. We had a major snag in hair/makeup running much later than expected, however, Cheryl was able to roll with it and still get most of our shots prior to our ceremony as planned. She and her assistant were absolutely great to work with it, our entire wedding party remarked on how easy they made the process. Words can not express how thrilled we are with the images they were able to capture of our entire day. Not only did Cheryl capture the absolute beauty of the farm (and our classic pick up truck) in the back drops of our pictures, but we were happy about how great we looked too! That doesn't happen often for us! We are incredibly thankful we found windsong photography and highly recommend you view the website and contact Cheryl!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Windsong Photography. From the first meeting with Cheryl, we knew that we could trust her to beautifully capture our wedding. Our engagement photo session was completely original and so much fun (and we are not people normally comfortable in front of the camera). Cheryl understood us and our personalities and really created wedding photos that showed them. The pictures are absolutely amazing!

Thoughtful, talented, clever, classic, inventive, professional, trustworthy. She even traveled to our home in Washington, DC for our engagement photo shoot - we have all of these incredible, priceless photos of us in our home and in front of all the monuments, the Capitol building, etc. It is amazing to have these beautiful shots of us where we fell in love. Cheryl's work is beautiful, and she is a wonderful person as well. Very early on in the wedding planning process, we began to feel like everyone we met wanted to make a buck off of us in any way they could - we grew to trust very few people and to expect to get overcharged for everything. We NEVER felt that way with Cheryl. She is really just terrific. We couldn't be happier. :-)

We found Windsong Photography by chance through Google and they turned out to be absolutely amazing! Cheryl is not only very creative and a wonderful photographer, she is also great to work with. She was accommodating to our busy schedules and came to NYC on a Sunday to take our engagement pictures. Cheryl and her assistants are low key and calm during the whole event however they are also very organized, needing little direction from the bride during the big day. Our photos are absolutely beautiful and we could not be happier with the overall experience! I would highly recommend Cheryl and will definitely hire her again for future events.

We got married last year and absolutely LOVE our pictures from Cheryl. At our wedding, Cheryl and Steve were just great. Cool, calm, and collective. Professional to the Nth degree. They had so many people to deal with and pose and position and they did it all with patience and a terrific aesthetic eye. Even after I said goodbye to Cheryl for the night to go home, she still pulled out her camera that she had just packed up to take some final shots of an impromptu performance I had with the wedding band. Even if she didn't, I wouldn't have cared. But that reason alone just shows a level of commitment, courtesy, and personalization that goes into Cheryl's work. If you're looking for someone who has a great eye for candid shots and rolls with the many punches a large wedding has to offer, Cheryl at Windsong Photography is the person you need to hire.
