I first found Anita on the knot while helping my sister for her fall 2019 wedding. I fell IN LOVE with her esthetic and vibe, and prayed she’d be available. I messaged Anita online, she responded within minutes, and we were talking on the phone...
within the hour. We instantly bonded. My sister’s engagement photos (included with her wedding package) and wedding photos were STELLAR!!! Seriously immaculate. It was at the wedding I discover Anita is also an MFM fan, which further cemented our bond. If you know, you know.
Fast forward a year and it was my turn! I booked Anita before I booked anything else. I literally checked her availability and that’s how we picked our site and every other vendor—THATS HOW IMPORTANT it was for her to be our photographer.
Fast, fast forward a year of wedding planning and anxiety, Anita was there every step of the way. Our engagement photos were INCREDIBLE. She and John are so fun and truly make you feel at ease! If you’re nervous about just what to do with yourself and not look like a deer in headlights, they are awesome at direction and guidance. I was even tickled at the emails she sends to not only help her have an idea of what you’re looking for, but seriously helped me consider what was important to me and helped me plan.
And finally—5 days before our New Years Day wedding, everyone came down with Covid. We had to postpone the big wedding, PANIC COMMENCE! We decided to get married at my dads house with just immediate family anyways, what Anita dubbed, our “living room elopement,” and she and John could not have been more accommodating. Not only that, but when we were able to reschedule our wedding reception at the venue, Anita and John DIDN’T CHARGE US EXTRA. I think her words were along the lines of, “we’re in this for the long haul.” Chica could have charged double, I still would have hired her (No take backs Anita!). But I mean, come on…just how much more amazing could you ask your wedding photographer to be?!
And our wedding photos? They are EVERYTHING to me. Exactly my esthetic and worth every single penny!!! John also got to shoot a video of our reception using some new fancy equipment they have and it is so good!
Y’all, I hate writing reviews and this was eight pages long if you needed any more of an indication of just how much I love Anita Louise Photography. Stop what you’re doing and hire this photographer!!!
