My husband and I did an engagement session with Amy in late October. It was such a great experience that I can't stop smiling ears to ears now as I am typing, looking back to that day!
First of all, Amy sincerely wants to take the best pictur...
es for her couples, and goes all out to achieve this. She's exceptionally responsive, she listened to our love stories, saw our family pictures, so that she could know us better and be prepared to take photos that show who we are and how we interact.
Secondly, Amy is super organized. She sent out kind reminders and confirmations before we took the shoot. And she planned the timing of shoot with room for unexpected delays, so that even if things like traffic jam or late hair appointment occurs, the couple would still have ample time to take photos during the golden hours. For our session, we selected an indoor space as our first shooting location, and central park as the second. Amy suggested we meet at 3. On the day of our photo shoot, a lot of delays did happen. Also, the day was overcast so the best light would be gone earlier than usual. But we managed to finish our indoor part and get out to Central Park before sunset! I remember Amy pointing at the sun and said excitingly to us, "look! that's the sun!" If it were not for Amy's smart choice of time, we would not have been able to get any outdoor photos.
Thirdly, Amy has an uncompromising professional spirit. She went with us anywhere we'd like to and continued to take photos until it's completely dark. We ended up going far far beyond our purchased time limit, and were prepared to make extra payment for her additional time. However, she refused to increase her charge and repeatedly assured us that all she wanted was to make sure we got all we wanted!
Fourthly, Amy is such a nice girl that is so pleasant to work with. The minute you meet her, you'll know how sweet a personality she's got. Her excellent communication skills and clear but non-intruding directions made us feel at ease, so we can act like ourselves. She helped us to forget about all the hustle, to immerse in our little photo shoot of love. I believe social skills as good as such is one of the reasons why she's always able to take wonderfully authentic pictures that burst with emotions and affections. Trust her, she simply knows how to make you look like your true self, at the pretties!
Fifth, Amy has wonderful photograph skills. She has an eye for beautiful lighting and composition. Our first shooting location was new to her, but she quickly identified elements that she wants to use in the picture, and figured out how we should pose ourselves so as to accommodate to the varying lighting. She obviously knew her trade well very, and was very good at capturing the decisive moment. She produced clean pictures in a very busy setting, and light-filled dreamy photos in an indoor environment. Indeed, like her own motto stated, Amy is truly capable of creating astonishingly beautiful photos!
Sixth, the entire experience was a lot fun! This may again relate to her personality and social skills. We had such a blast during the session! And the joy showed up everywhere in our pictures! Amy and her lens just magnify happiness!
Last but not least, Amy delivered her work fast, and in a quantity that exceeded our imagination! She's such an overachiever!
All in all, I would highly recommend Amy to my friends, or anyone, who want clean, authentic, beautiful, and fun pictures!!
