Only a few portfolios stood out to us when we were researching florists. Karen's work is beautiful and when we went to meet her we were also impressed by her professionalism. This impression never faded and we are still thrilled that she was the one who was there on our wedding day. She is very talented but she also listened to what we wanted and it showed in all of our flowers. From the day we hired her, she was always kind and always helpful. She took the time to understand our vision, she never rushed our phone calls, she went all the way out to the site to understand the layout and scale, and she offered a bunch of suggestions (even when my questions were not flower-related). I do not think we could have chosen a better person for the day.

We had a great time with Anne-Marie. She was organized and professional from the very beginning, promptly returning emails and calls throughout our time with her. We never had to worry. When there were decisions to be made, she walked us through our options and never put any pressure on us. She choreographed our dance beautifully, taught us the moves, and answered any questions we had.

Rebecca was one of my favorite vendors. Her prices are reasonable and her customer service is top notch. She was so great about making suggestions and putting together a list of options for me. When I finally did place my order, everything came safely packaged and it was all beautiful.

Junshien International Photographers
We hired Junshien for our June wedding and we were very pleased. He is easy to work with because he makes you feel comfortable... he kept us laughing during our wedding and engagement session and our bridal party commented on how funny he was. Keep in mind, it was so hot on our wedding day there was a heat advisory. Still, Junshien never complained and he had enough energy to keep our spirits up. He and his assistant arrived early in the morning and stayed after our brunch reception (almost ten hours) so that we could get more pictures. His professional demeanor was also appropriate. Very responsive to emails and calls so any time we had a question or needed to talk, he was available. Though we were married in California, we lived on the east coast for most of the wedding planning process so his willingness to keep in touch was important to us. We were even able to do our engagement session back east because he was already traveling to the area to photograph other clients. He seems to always be on the go, which was nice for us... we were looking for someone with lots of creativity and energy. The pictures we received were beautiful. It is a matter of taste but we were originally drawn to the vibrant colors and spontaneity of the pictures in his portfolio and were happy to see those things in our own pictures. I strongly encourage you to check out his website for yourself. He is constantly updating his website with his current work, which is nice because you get to see what he is up to THIS YEAR, not what he was up to three years ago. Junshien was also flexible about our package. We did not realize that the mini parent albums included in our package were 5"x5" albums. Those are just way too small. However, we were able to credit the parent albums toward enhancing our own wedding album. This was nice for us because we were able to put money toward things we wanted and he was very honest and fair about the credits we had built up. We haven't received our wedding album yet but I will try to update our review when we do. Overall, very pleased with photography by Junshien and would certainly recommend him to others. At the end of the day, we have hundreds of beautiful pictures and it was a pleasure to work with him for the year we were planning the wedding. We would work with him again
