Because I'm a mean and abusive photographer, and I like to pick on my clients, I'm going to share the top-secret compliments Logan paid me when another potential client emailed her for a review of my services. I think I shall have her response framed. (And Alisa's, who also wrote up a delicious [is that gross?] little vanity-increaser. SWOON! But that's for another day. ;) )
1.) How satisfied were you with your pictures overall?
Extremely satisfied with our pictures. I personally love the photos that are more artistic but I wanted some of the traditional ones as well and we got a great amount of both plus she gives you every picture she takes and I enjoyed that. She got pictures of everything the guests,and details and if you have any requests she will do that as well.What I loved most was that in the pictures you could really see the happiness we were beaming with that day and the love we share. All our friends and family commented about the emotion they could see through the photos. To me that was important because 10 or 20 years from now you may not remember the flowers you used or the cake mishap but you ll remember the feelings you shared and the pictures truly expressed that.
2. How would you rate Emily's professionalism on your wedding day?
I would give her a 10. She knows how to make you feel comfortable and to take the nerves away(which you'll probably have) My husband nor I had ever taken professional photos so we were a tad bit nervous of that whole experience in itself. But Emily really made you feel good, what I really enjoyed was if I was doing a pose or facial expression that wasn't my best she told me! I LOVED that because the last thing I wanted was to look dumb in all the photos on the flip side she'll tell you when your looking good and that's always motivating and feels good. She shined with helping at the wedding and even bustled my dress since my girls couldn't figure it out!
3. Were there any surprises or problems that came up? How were they taken care of?
With Emily no problems but other things yes haha but another reason I loved Emily was I had dj problems and he played the wrong song while I walked down the aisle minor detail but Emily made us a video after our wedding and played the song I WAS suppose to walk down to. It meant alot that she went out of her way to do that for us and still brings tears to my eyes when I watch it. She really pays attention, right before I walked down I started to freak out but she was like take a deep breath....and it was nice that she was there she really cares about her brides and to me that is amazing.
4.) Is there anything else I should know when considering Emily as my photographer?
I really love everything about Emily she has wonderful ideas and is up for any ideas you throw out there. On your wedding day, she will make you the priority and keep you on track time wise. We have got so many compliments of our wedding photos and photography. To me photography was one of the most important aspects of our day. She really went above and beyond what we could have ever asked for. Let her know what you like and want and she'll do it. She's all about making her brides happy.
Maybe I should send it to my MOM! :D Hee, hee. :) Thank you Logan! Made my month! (And you too, Alisa!)
