"Wendy did such a wonderful professional job as our photographer for both our engagement and wedding photos. From the very beginning Wendy was so much fun. I felt very relaxed and natural around her. She is very responsive and professional. When we went for our initial consultation she took a few photos of us and they were awesome. I knew if she could get great pictures of us without any preparation she was very talented.
A few months later she took our engagement photos in Paterson Park. My husband and are both amateur photographers and Wendy’s ability to capture light and emotion are unmatched by other photographers we looked at.
For our wedding Wendy did such a great job. She stayed late and brought along an assistant. She really went above and beyond. My mom particularly hates her photo being taken, but the photos Wendy took of her made her look so beautiful, natural, and relaxed. Since I planned the wedding myself getting photos of details was important to me. I didn’t even tell Wendy this… but she took tons of amazing photos of everything from the flowers, to the welcome bags, to the food, the menus, desserts, etc…
We also ordered the fab booth for our reception. A lot of my wedding was DYI including all of the planning. I thought we would be able to fit the fab booth in the tent but it didn’t fit. I was very bummed… it ended up not being a problem because Wendy moved the fab booth inside and it worked out great (probably even better then if it was in the tent). We got some of the best pictures out of the fab booth! It is highly recommended!
Finally, three days before our wedding I got into a horrible car crash and totaled my car. It left me with a huge seat-belt burn on my chest. My dress was off the shoulder and my chest was on full display. During the wedding I used some cover-up but the bruising and open sore showed. When my husband and I looked through all our photos at Wendy’s studio we were so surprised that Wendy airbrushed out every photo that the sore showed! There were almost 1000 photos! Wendy truly went above and beyond. I will continue to hire her when I get pregnant, have kids, and any other occasion I need a professional photographer.
Our Wedding was 10/22/2011 at Irvine Nature Center. Wendy has some pictures on her blog."

"Wendy is absolutely AMAZING! I’ve attended two weddings of hers over the years and have been in two as well, and I knew WITH OUT A DOUBT that she is who I wanted to photograph my wedding!!!! She’s an amazing person to work with. I’m someone who HATES my picture being taken and am not at all the girly type, but she made it so easy for me to relax with her and her camera. She went out of her way to be accommodating for my husband and I to meet us before the wedding so we’d be truly comfortable with her, which we were! I’m so pleased I want her to photograph all major landmarks in my life!!!"

"Easiest review to write thus far. Wendy rocks. Photography was my number one priority when planning our wedding which is why it was the first thing I booked. Wendy was easy to communicate with and instantly made us feel like old friends (comfort is huge when you’re posing in front of a camera and not used to it).
On the day of the wedding, Wendy was on time, professionally dressed, and fun to be around. Also a huge plus, I barely noticed her. I know she was everywhere, snapping away…but she’s so experienced at what she does that she’s not distracting at all.
Her photos are amazing. If you’re considering her … do yourself a favor and book her … now. I did my research and she’s the best…trust me :)"
Danny and Laura
"Wendy was great from the moment I first contacted her. She was the only photographer I had contacted that CALLED me back rather than emailing. This was very helpful, because personality is extremely important for a photographer. She was a delight to work with. She’s positive, encouraging, creative, artistic, fun and super sweet. She did a really fun engagement shoot with us before the wedding and we had a ball! She has energy for days and kept up with all of our craziness. We LOVE the images. She was amazing on the wedding day and got some beautiful shots. She was able to deal with our large wedding party and enormous family very well. We love her!! We’ll be booking her for future shoots as our anniversaries come and our family grows. She’s great!"
Rob and Christina
"I cannot say enough about Wendy. We have been working with her for over a year now (engagement and wedding photographers) and can honestly say she will be our photographer for all our big life events. We LOVE her. Excellent personality that makes you feel at ease, incredible artistic eye, and all-around great person. She has our highest recommendation."
Mike and Katy
"Wendy was a pleasure to work with and the pictures she takes are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! Wendy was always friendly & professional to work with. From the start of my wedding planning, photography was always very important to me and I felt very confident working with Wendy throughout the planning process. Hurricane Irene hit the day of our wedding and Wendy and her assistant (also amazing) came through with flying colors. They not only stayed calm and organized, but helped to keep me and the wedding party calm (despite the chaos of the weather) and smiling. We had to make several changes to our original plan (the electricity went out at our reception and we had to be evacuated due to the weather) and Wendy stayed flexible and organized. I was worried about how the pictures would turn out with the wind and rain, but they are stunning!! Wendy is a great person and excellent photographer – you won’t be disappointed."
Matt and Britt
"Wendy was absolutely wonderful to work with, and our pictures are breathtaking! We have received many compliments from friends and family, noting that our pictures are the best they have ever seen! She was extremely professional, responsive and, most important, made us feel comfortable on our big day so we could be ourselves. She is a very genuine person and her passion for her job shows.
She truly captured the moment in her photography and we have loved re-living every minute of our day through the pictures. We would highly recommend Wendy and look forward to working with her again as we experience new life milestones."
Ben and Dana
"Wendy was amazing!! She really made you feel comfortable when she was taking pictures. My husband is not a picture fan but after we took our engagement photos, he was hooked! Wendy is a ton of fun to be around which makes the taking a million pictures easier to handle. Her work is awesome. My husband and I both said I think we found our lifetime photographer. I would recommend Wendy for any type of photos that you need! She is great!!"
Mike and Jess
"What a blessing to have Wendy capture our special day through her eyes! She has a wonderful talent. She is so friendly and open to all ideas with her photographs. We never even knew she was there on our wedding day, yet she managed to capture every detail and all of the emotions with her camera! Definitely money well spent!"
Rob and Rosie
"Wendy was such a pleasure to have as a part of our wedding. On such an emotion-filled day, Wendy’s outgoing personality put everyone at ease. Not to mention that the photos were more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!! My whole family fell in love with her and was more than happy to accommodate her in getting the most beautiful photographs. She has a professional yet friendly manner and was right there for every important beat. She also has a great eye for those unexpected moments that make your wedding albums personal. Hire her!"
James and Karen
"I had very high expectations of my photographer, as I knew my wedding pictures would be what I’d have to enjoy for years to come. From our first meeting, my fiancé and I felt immediately comfortable with Wendy. She is extremely easy-going, personable and not to mention, just fun and silly! These are such important qualities to have for both of us to feel at ease with her on our special day and also for our guests. You don’t realize how much time you spend with your photographer; so I knew right away that Wendy would be perfect! And she exceeded my expectations – everything from our engagement session to our actual wedding day to the planning of our wedding album. She stayed true to those qualities.
The photographs she takes are truly amazing – there are so many I love that I had a hard time choosing between all of them. She has a great artistic eye and she’s willing to go above and beyond to capture the moment! Thank you Wendy for being part of our special day!"
Timm and Lianne
"Of all the photographers I contacted, Wendy was the only one who mentioned getting to KNOW my husband and I before the event. She met with us and really tried to get a sense of who we are and what we wanted out of our wedding photos. She made us feel like our event was her top priority and she was very professional and flexible. She brought a great sense of fun to the event which made us more comfortable in front of the camera."
Jim and Jennifer
"Wonderful photographer and person!! She was extremely easy to work with and very professional. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect mix of formal and artsy pictures of your special day!"
Mike and Chrissy
"Wendy is amazing! I wanted a really creative photographer with a journalistic style that would be able to see an awesome shot that the normal person would not. Wendy totally fits the bill. However, what I didn’t realize I wanted, was someone that I would love having around me all day that made my husband and I feel really special and comfortable. We laughed with Wendy all day …and for the moments where she needed to be scarce, I didn’t even know she was around until I saw the pictures later. She asked me to pick out my favorite photos and I just can’t narrow them down. I love them all!! She was a perfect fit for our wedding and we are so glad we made such a great decision!"
HC and Colleen
"Wendy is amazing. She made everyone in my wedding feel extremely relaxed and at ease. She took beautiful engagement pictures at my home which turned out amazing! My engagement pictures look better than most of my friends wedding pictures and they spent a fortune! She is an amazing value. I would recommend her to everyone I know!"
Wade and Erica
"Wendy is a genius at her work. When my husband and I talk about our wedding, we talk about our photos – how great they are – and how Wendy was the best decision we made. Her photos are unique and really tell our story. Wendy is great to work with and such a wonderful person. She will be the best choice you make as well."
Tim and Cory
"Wendy has captured all of my most special moments – from my single days to my budding relationship to engagement pics, my fabulous wedding photos and then my pre-baby pregnancy pics and soon-to-be baby photos. I can’t think of anyone else to capture such special times in my life. I would recommend her to anyone looking to have fabulous photos with a wonderful photographer and, more importantly, a fabulous person. Her personality brings the photos to life!"
Mike and Lisa
"Wendy was wonderful to work with! She was always available before and after the wedding for any questions I had. The day of my wedding, hurricane Bill pushed storms into our area so the outside lighting was very limited but Wendy created magic! Our pictures were perfect and I highly recommend her for any event you need a photographer for!"
Richard and Melody
"Wendy is a wonderful photographer. She is truly very talented. She has photographed my family on numerous occasions and every time her work is amazing. We highly recommend her and we know you will love her photographs just as much as we do."
Brandee and Justin
"I can’t say enough positive feedback about Wendy – she is truly a talented professional and anyone who works with her will be very happy with the results! We had Wendy shoot some engagement shots and they turned out to be some of our favorite shots from the entire wedding experience – I wish I had hired her as our wedding photographer because I know she would have done a great job with those as well. I hope anyone else considering hiring Wendy will be able to experience her work and the passion she brings to making every shoot fresh and beautiful."
Adam and Ashleigh
"Wendy is the most amazing photographer we know. She knew exactly the types of photographs we wanted and we will treasure the pictures forever. We are indebted to her for adding to our wonderful day!"
