Our experience with Aaron was incredible. He was so easy to work with and so kind from the very first phone call to receiving the final pictures.
We got engaged and scheduled the wedding date pretty quickly. Since we're getting married about 4...
00 miles from Springfield, MO (where we currently live), I thought engagement pictures would be out of the question - simply no time. I couldn't help but fall in love with the beautiful fall colors in this part of the country, though. So, I got online and desperately looked for photographers in hopes that someone would have time to take at least a few shots of my fiancé and me. I heard back from several that I emailed through their "contact me" pages on their websites, but I was able to reach out to Aaron on the phone. He answered the first time I called and was so incredibly helpful and nice to talk to on the phone. He had time available (although I think he MADE time available for us, which I am ever so thankful for) so we planned to meet at a state park for photos just a few short days later.
While I take a million pictures throughout the year, I'm rarely *in* the photos. So, I was a bit nervous about getting some good pictures of the two of us. And on top of that, I wanted to throw my three Labrador Retrievers into the mix. They're our family. They HAD TO BE IN THE PHOTOS! Aaron just said bring 'em on! He never hesitated at any of my requests.
We met Aaron at the park and it instantly felt like we were among friends. He made us feel very comfortable with his laid back demeanor and his silly jokes. He was fantastic with my dogs, too. Working with pets takes patience. Actually, working with me takes a lot of patience now that I think about it! Aaron was along for the ride and he had lots of creative ideas for photos. My fiancé and I both really enjoyed getting to know him. We walked through the woods and talked like friends while he found the perfect settings for our engagement photos. We actually ended up having a lot in common with Aaron and his wife.
I will definitely have Aaron take photos for us again. I do have my horses that I didn't have the opportunity to bring to the engagement shoot (although Aaron was up for that as well). I will most definitely be calling him again to take some photos of my horses and me....maybe in my wedding dress after the wedding?? That sounds amazing!!! :) Get ready, Aaron!!
Again, I cannot say enough good things about Aaron Clark Photography. You have been a pleasure to work with from start to finish. The photos are more than I could have dreamed of. Thank you for all you did for us.
