Last year my Wife and I had Debroah as our photographer. She was excellent! she was willing to work with us on price and length of time that we needed her. She brought an assistant with her so that she could be taking pictures of the Bride and Bridemaids getting ready while her assistant was with the groomsmen and I. They did not miss a moment thru our whole ceremony or reception. Yet, you would have never known they were there. She was not demanding about what pictures she wanted or making us go out of our way to get a shot. It was all about us and what we wanted.
Debroah also surprised us with a 1st anniversary gift as well. It was nice to know that we weren't just another paying gig for her.
I would highly recommend using Debroah O'Brien for your wedding.

Deborah took care of the photography and she was wonderful! Not only were the pictures fantastic, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very responsive to requests and took the time to listen to what we wanted. She also asked for any special pictures ahead of time, so that she could take care of them without asking. We would enthusiastically recommend her!

She was calming and reassuring for a nervous bride. She was so patient and pleasant with all the guests' "suggestions" for shots. She was wonderful to deal with. When setting up shots she was great; she did not order us around like you hear some wedding photographers do. She wanted to take the photos that we wanted her to take. She was careful to check with us before she left to be sure there wasn't anything else we wanted her to take before she left. The photos are beautiful. There are so many wonderful pictures, it was incredibly hard to narrow down the ones to order. Deborah is truly a pleasure to work with!

Our wedding was 9/22/12 in CT. Working with Deborah was truly a joy. With all the stress that a wedding day can bring she really made things easy. She was very professional and easy to work with. She knew exactly when to get the best shots during the ceremony and was very creative with angles and poses. We had given her groups of people and scenarios of pictures we wanted throughout the day, and she was able to capture all of them. We ended up with so many choices, and different colors of pictures to choose from. Deborah really met all of our needs and made our day extra special! Because of her we have so many pictures to cherish. Our only problem was picking our favorites because we loved them all. Deborah you were awesome, and thanks for such a memorable day!! xoxo

I had heard about Deb's work from a number of friends. She is a pleasure to have at any function and captured some very special moments that I would have forgotten. She was unobtrusive and so easy to work with. My family commented several times that she was "just great". I highly recommend her.

Deborah was fantastic... she really seemed to care about what we needed, listened and oozed professionalism. Truly a lovely person to work with, and the photos were just what we wanted!

From the first introduction Deborah was extremely pleasant. She took every step to fill our needs and expectations, from seeking out a second photographer to accommodating us in releasing the photos. She made the experience comfortable and we were very impressed with her turn around time.

Deborah O’Brien was our photographer for a summer wedding. She was attentive to details that we had not even considered. She was patient and gentle spirited through all interactions. She asked questions that helped us make later decisions, which we found very helpful. She showed interest in knowing what it was that would make this day especially wonderful for us. On the day of the wedding, she was calm and focused. She had asked us to prepare a list of all persons we wanted photographed which she thoughtfully attended to. She was creative in setting the scene as backdrop for our portrait pictures. Her candid pictures were fabulous. She made excellent use of light and camera angle so as to maximize the outcome. I will say as an older bride that she minimized any signs of my aging, which certainly made me smile as I looked back on the day. She was so willing to help us with any question or concern and it was noteworthy that I found her to always go the extra distance in her desire to make us happy with her service. She took so many beautiful pictures that we are challenged to limit our selection for our wedding album. I would highly recommend this photographer.

Deborah was wonderful- we loved the pictures. She was able to capture many candid shots. Remember to give her a list of the formal pictures you want.

It was a complete pleasure working with Deborah O'Brien. She was always available for questions both before and after the ceremony. She took 800+ exposures over a 5+ hour wedding, including both beautifully posed formal shots and outstanding candid shots; at no time, however, was she ever intrusive or in the way. We are still assembling the photos for inclusion in our album, which is difficult because there are so many lovely photos. I am a very experienced amateur photographer, and I have to say that her creative use of lighting and framing is many notches above what one ordinarily sees from professional photographers.

Deborah O'Brien is a consummate professional and makes you feel relaxed throughout your wedding day. She gets the shots you want while you are enjoying your celebration. She is calm and easy to work with. Great mix of candids and formals. Has great suggestions and definitely would recommend her to anyone!

Great photographer!! I will definitely recomend her to all my friends and family for their special events for Deborah to catch that very special moment for them like she did for us in our wedding. We just got our wedding pictures two days ago, and they're just simply beautiful!! Thanks Deborah!! From a very happy newlywed! :)

Deborah O'Brien captured perfectly the feelings and emotions of our special day.
We did extensive research into photographers in Connecticut and were looking for someone who had experience in beach weddings and who was affordable. We knew within moments of meeting Deborah that she was the one. She immediately made us feel comfortable and answered all our questions.
Once at the event, she was in all the right places at all the right times and captured all the shots we wanted. She choreographed perfectly romantic portraits of me and my husband, and sentimental family and friend group shots.
I wholeheartedly recommend Deborah! You will not be disappointed.

Deborah was our photographer for our May 2010 wedding. She is an incredibly talented photographer and a pleasure to work with. Deborah was great at always setting up the right shot, and making sure to get all the shots that we had requested. Furthermore, her use of lighting and backdrop was incredible! She is also extremely friendly and personable. We could not be happier that we chose Deborah to photograph our special day!

Deborah O'Brien photographed our wedding in April 2010. She was fantastic. Very unobtrusive and yet she got all the right shots and more! Deb made everyone feel comfortable and the pictures were absolutely beautiful (which was greatly appreciated since we are a 'mature' couple)! Deb's flexibility, creativity and people skills really made our experience with her a real pleasure. Our album is beautiful. Every moment captured and the story of our wedding beautifully told through the photos. We also found her pricing to be very reasonable. We now consider her our 'family's photographer' and we know that when our daughter and son marry...they will not have to look any further than pulling up Deb on their contact list when it's time to hire a photographer. Too bad we can only give her 5 stars!

Deborah and her staff were amazing photographers and captured the most intimate moments of our day. The pictures came back very quickly and she's been so helpful with assisting me with my wedding album and my mother-in-law's album.
The photographers seemed to capture everything yet were not "in your face" as some photographers can be. I highly recommend Deborah for your wedding.

Deborah was wonderful. She has a great eye for the right moment, came prepared for all situations, came early and stayed to the end. She has a huge selection of photo displays, but is able to work within the desires of the couple. I would use her again in a minute. Nancy tar
