Bridal Portraits, Engagement
If your are looking for a photographer that gives you that special Bride feeling while also making you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, SHE IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER! I booked Amy almost a year in advance and she kept in touch with me every month before my portraits. She is GREAT with communication and figuring out EXACTLY what you want. The day of the Portraits, Amy greeted me with that "I've known you forever" kind of smile and hug. She placed me in all my poses and held my dress every step of the way. She helped loosen my nerves and gave me the confidence to be myself and it truly showed in my photos. Ah! I still dream about that day. On my wedding day, it rained :( But don't think she wasn't on her A- game! she had all the cute props to make rain photos super cute! she ran us outside when there was a break in the rain and got UNBELIEVABLY romantic and sweet photos. Her team was super cute with my guests and got the cutest dancing photos! I never felt like they got in the way either. She also took photos from unthinkable places and angles. For example, during our first dance, she took photos in between the champaign tree! It gave the photos a beautiful filter and was so creative. She truly is very talented and thinks of everything! Let me just tell you, the ONLY problem that i have is I haven't been able to frame any of my photos because I can't choose one that is my favorite!..... I LOVE THEM ALL!!! My hubby thinks it wouldn't be cute to cover every inch of my walls with wedding pictures but Wifey knows best right?! lol She is amazing and she is a true professional. Book her!
Unless you're Gigi Hadid or on a similar payroll, having professional photos taken can be intimidating, like, 'what am I doing with my face?' kind of moments, but Amy's energy and passion make everything copacetic. Not only is she so much fun during the sessions, but you'll be in awe when you receive the proofs. She has a natural talent for guiding you for the best shots, while still making you feel very comfortable. Our engagement photos were to die for and my bridal portraits made me feel how every woman dreams she would. Amy is simply incredible and you can't go wrong hiring her/inviting her into your soul to capture life's most phenomenal moments. I'm so glad we did and I strongly recommend her to anyone and everyone wanting only the best.
I am so thankful that we heard about Amy and could book her for our special day. Working with her was an absolute pleasure. I received so many compliments about her during the process from both vendors and our wedding guests. Amy is very professional and efficient, which was especially highlighted on our wedding day. She knew exactly what shots she needed and wanted. I also appreciated how sensitive she was to special circumstances and delicate relationships. It gives me so much joy to look back on our photos and remember what a wonderful time we had. She captured our moments in such an artful and beautiful way. Any bride would be lucky to work with her.
We are extremely satisfied with our wedding photos! I literally cried when I got them in the mail because she captured such beautiful moments and I get to relive them forever. Amy is a beautiful person, inside and out. She has a great eye for stunning photos and you will not be disappointed.
Amy was AMAZING from the moment we contacted her until we received our wedding photos tied in a ribbon and custom USB drive. Even though we decided to elope, she made us feel just as special and didn't spare any details in capturing us on our special day. Our photos are breathtaking!
I can't say enough good things about Amy and her talent! Her work surpassed my expectations, and she was such a joy to work with. She made my fiance and I feel so comfortable (even in the serious face photos!) and captured moments that we will cherish for a lifetime. She is professional, timely and truly a pro at what she does. Her attention to detail, use of natural lighting and desire to do whatever it takes to capture 'the shot' made for some unforgettable photos. We are so glad that we chose her to photograph this event/memory in our lives' and are thrilled that she does maternity, children, and family photos as well. We will absolutely be using her again, as often as we can, in the future! She has such a natural ability for what she does and you can tell how much she enjoys her work and wants to be sure that you are completely satisfied and happy. You will not regret choosing Amy to document any and all milestones in your life. We love you Al Gawlik Photography!
When beginning our wedding planning, we both knew that the photography was at the top of our priority list. We wanted naturally beautiful pictures that would last a lifetime and to work with someone who was passionate about their work. When we came across Al Gawlik Photography, we knew we wouldn't be happy with any one else. Amy has a beautiful eye for uniqueness, and when you match that with her ability to use natural light, you get nothing like you've ever seen. She is present for each shoot, loves what she does, and she loves to help make your vision come to life. The Al Gawlik team is professional, kind, and makes sure to capture not just the expected pictures, but all of the small details that make your day special as well. We are absolutely in love with our Engagement Photos, My Bridal Photos, Wedding Day Photos, and the fun Photobooth Photos (the photobooth was definitely a guest favorite). We continue to get compliments all the time about our photos and how beautiful and elegant they turned out. We are so thankful for Amy and her awesome team, our special day wouldn't have been complete with out them.
The best decision of my life was marrying my husband. The second best, was booking Amy to capture our wedding day photos. First of All, Amy is amazing. I have been admiring her work for years, hoping that one day I'd get married and be able to have her photograph my wedding. I was more than ecstatic when we booked her for our wedding! If I spent any money on my wedding, I wanted to make sure I had the best photographer. So that is who we booked first. And she is worth every penny! She is so talented and sweet. She made my husband and I feel comfortable during each shoot. (We booked her for engagements, bridals, rehearsal dinner and the wedding of course!) She goes above and beyond her "role" to make sure your day goes as smoothly as possible, highlighting each special moment so that it may be forever cherished . When I first viewed my wedding pictures, I cried with happy tears (and not just a few). I felt the EXACT SAME emotions that I had felt on my wedding day. I have never met any one who could capture such beautiful moments, and who made me feel as if it were the very best day of my life...all over again. Every time I look at these pictures, I feel this way. I could feel the emotions I had felt, when my husband saw me for the first time, as I walked down the aisle. I could feel the same feelings just as every thing happened all over again. Where else can you find that?!!! I feel the same happiness and love I felt on that day whenever I look at these photos and am so appreciative that we get to have these moments for the rest of our lives. It is truly a blessing to have that. My husband and I, both, were so amazed and thrilled when we saw our pictures from the wedding for the very first time. I knew they were going to be awesome but they were so much more than that! Everyone who has viewed my photos has been thoroughly impressed. They loved the detail and the thought behind each captured moment. I am so grateful to have had her as my photographer. We are also glad to have met her. She truly made our day, that much more special and cared enough to do so. Seriously, she was one of the best vendors to work with! She was easy to work with and fun to be around! I can't go on enough about her! Book her and you will have no regrets!
Amy is absolutely phenomenal! I would recommend her to everyone! She captured every moment of our wedding and did so beautifully and effortlessly. If I could give Amy 10 stars I would! I don't think you could find more talented photographer and in addition to being amazing at what she does, she is so fun to be around! She made the whole process perfect and did an excellent job of capturing our special day! I will treasure the photos she took forever! She is absolutely the best photographer you will find!! If you are even slightly on the fence about hiring her my advice is "Just go for it! You will NOT be disappointed! She is fantastic!"
Amy takes amazing photos so effortlessly! She is calm and makes you feel so comfortable. Shooting with her was a breeze! Highly recommend!!
Amy is just the best. She did my bridals and wedding and I couldn't have been happier. She totally just understood what I wanted and over delivered. Not only is her photography spot on, but she gets photos back in what seems like record time. She has the best eye and is the vision of efficiency on wedding day. We had a wedding party of 30 people not including family and she was a rockstar making sure I got every shot I wanted with no wasted time. Her and her second shooters detail shots blew me away. In my bridals there were some shots that I was questioning in my mind at the time but they turned out to be my favorites!! Truly a very talented artist that I will use again without a doubt and would highly recommend. You can't go wrong with Amy!! All the gold stars to you!!
Amy was utterly phenomenal. I cannot say enough wonderful things about both the incredible photos of our wedding or how truly splendid she was to be around / work with. She was incredibly easy to communicate with, so much fun to be around, and managed to keep me smiling and mellow on an otherwise chaotic day. It really was like having another of my friends along with us for the day. Our wedding day was hit by a huge storm and we had to shift our plans / locations last minute. Amy managed to make our rain drenched, flooded day look amazing in pictures and captured so many breathtaking images and moments. She playfully engaged guests, getting even the shyest of our friends on film hamming it up, and also managed to keep a smile and gracefully handle even the most challenging of our family members who could be a bit overbearing where it came to the wedding. Later on, we got to know her a bit better during a post-wedding portrait shoot we hadn't had time to schedule pre-wedding. She's such enjoyable company and so much fun to be around! Her skills as a photographer and her creative energy are unparalleled, and she's a dream to work with. Booking Amy as our photographer was easily the best decision we made in regards to our wedding. We couldn't be more thrilled and wowed by our photos. Thank you!!!
Amy was not just our wedding photographer, she inadvertently became our "day of" stylist, therapist, and overall wedding guru. We had hired Amy for other events, and knew we had to bring her to Mexico to shoot our wedding day! She is passionate about her work, and knows how to truly capture the moments we want to remember forever.
Literally can't say enough amazing things about Amy. She did our engagements, boudoir, and reception and they all turned out incredible! My only regret was not being able to use her at our actual ceremony in Mexico (resort wouldn't allow outside photographers) - she's just that good. I got sooo many compliments on our photos - she seriously somehow managed to make us look like angelic models. Also, she's a joy to work with and gives great direction. Don't spend money on the food - spend it on the memories.
Amy Gawlik was the best choice I ever made for my wedding. She is an amazing photographer and I am so blessed and thankful for everything she did for us. Amy Gawlik loves what she does and it reflects in her work.
If you're having a hard time deciding which photographer to use for your wedding, look no further! Al Gawlik photography (Amy) was amazing. When planning our wedding, photography was something that we were willing to spend more money on as long as the photographer's work was impressive. Wow! Amy did not disappoint! Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she is so personable, and made us feel comfortable during our engagement session and wedding. We were so impressed with Amy and her work, we have decided that our wedding will not be the last life event that we will ask Amy to photograph.
Amy is a natural! You can show up and she will make you look good-no great! She will walk you through the process and tell you exactly what to do to make sure your photos are awesome. She did my engagement photos, and I literally cried when I got them back. She is professional and you can tell she loves what she does. I am also lucky to get to work with her in the wedding industry and she is great with my clients as well. You can't go wrong with Amy :) One of the best!
Amy is seriously THE BOMB. From our engagement photos, bridal portraits and our wedding- everything was spectacular. I am so happy that I was so picky about who I chose to shoot our special day. She is my photographer for life.
If I could give 10 stars I most definitely would. Amy's work is absolutely gorgeous! She does amazing work and is a truly talented photographer. She also gave our pictures back in an extremely timely fashion. We were so surprised at how fast she was able to get our pictures back to us! Amy is also very easy to work with and is very interested in making sure she captures exactly what you want. Amy definitely exceeding all our expectations. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an outstanding photographer! I'm hoping to work with her/use her through out our upcoming life events!
The BEST photographer! Amazing to work with and just all around sweet person! Her eye for pictures simply amazed me!!!
Al Gawlik Photography was my only condition when planning my wedding. I HAD to have Amy shoot all of my pictures- engagements, bridals and the wedding. She exceeded every expectation I had for her. She made everything so easy for us- the booking, the planning, and of course the pictures (for me AND my husband). And then none of that even begins to touch on the quality of pictures. We were blown away by how stunning all of the pictures came out. We used 7 pictures on our save-the-dates because we couldn't pick just one. I have received innumerable compliments about our gorgeous pictures. Amy is a professional on every level and is the sweetest person to work with. She made us feel so comfortable every time we were with her, and on our wedding day, she was efficient with her time, allowing us plenty of time with our 600+ guests. She captured our relationship and our big day perfectly, which I am sure is very difficult to do with that many people present. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thank you Amy for the most beautiful pictures to ensure we remember the day just like we experienced it.
Everything about Al Gawlik was perfect. Her communication leading up to the wedding was great, she was professional, and most importantly, got 100's of wonderful photos! She was all over the wedding without being noticed. The portraits were great, several creative ideas, plus the traditional ones. I would highly recommend!
Hiring Amy was hands down the best decision I made throughout my entire wedding planning process. She was INCREDIBLE to work with and her photos are simply stunning. She captures the magic of each and every priceless moment... I wish I could give rate her at 1,000,000 stars!!!
Amy is a wonderful photographer. She did my engagement, bridal and wedding photos. Her pictures are absolutely stunning and she was so fun and easy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Al Gawlik Photography!!! :)
Amazing and talented photographer!Reviewed on 1/03/2016 Claire W
I could not be more pleased with choosing Amy and Breanna McKendrick for our wedding photographers! They have such a talent for catching the light, finding the right angles & setting as well as knowing what it takes to get the perfect shot. Our wedding was outdoors and they knew how to work with the sunlight and scenery and capture the beautiful setting. During the wedding day she was such a pleasure to work with- she was quick and provided the perfect amount of direction always listening to my needs. We were blown away with the photos that were captured of our special day- not only of us but but also of our guests on the dancefloor which they all enjoyed! Too many priceless gems!
