Absolutely Amazing!

Reviewed on 2/11/2014 Tiffany

I recently got married in December and after much research decided to contact Dan and Marie. From the first email Marie was extremely nice, helpful and fast with responding. We spoke on the phone a few weeks before the wedding to finalize details and after our conversation, I... Read More knew they were going to be fantastic. She covered details I would have never thought about. On the day of the wedding...which was supposed to be an outside ceremony and reception it rained and we were forced to move inside. Despite the changes Dan and Marie were extremely flexible, compassionate and nothing short of wonderful. They are so creative and were able to capture beautiful photos despite the rain. Every detail and exciting moment from ceremony to exit was captured for us to look at and remember forever. Every picture is amazing and I could not be happier. The rain was no match for them or us and I am so grateful that they were willing to go out and take pictures in that weather. They went above and beyond and even after stalking their blog and facebook page, knowing we were going to get wonderful photos, they still exceeded my expectations. We even got our pictures early! I cannot say enough good things! I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a photographer for any occasion. They even traveled 2 hours for us and were very reasonable on travel expenses. THEY ARE FANTASTIC!!!

Couldn't be happier!

Dan and Marie were AMAZING to work with. I cannot recommend a better photographer. From first meeting Marie I knew they would be a joy to work with. They were very responsive and I knew I would not have to worry a bit on my wedding day. They are great at what they do and it... Read More really shows in their pictures. They captured every single moment during my big day and I find myself constantly looking at our pictures. If you want a photographer who is easy and wonderful to work with, very creative, on time, and one that you can trust choose Appleseed Photography. Our pictures are amazing and we know we will want to look at them forever. There was not one bad photo. They are amazing.

Marie and Dan are incredible. I coordinate events as a living and I know I was probably very nit-picky with timing and shot lists.

True Artist!!! I was introduced to Appleseed Photography by my wedding planner. She assured me that I would love their work and I did. I got married March 18th of this year. We had a Great Gatsby themed wedding so everything had to be grand and timeless. We first met with Marie... Read More and had the pleasure of Dan shooting our engagement photo shoot and our wedding day. When me and my husband received our pictures back we were immediately filled with emotions. The pictures were so perfect. We felt that we were living our wedding night all over again just looking through them. They did such a great job capturing every moment as well as embracing the theme. God has truly blessed them with an amazing gift. Thank you Appleseed Photography for photographing the best day of my life and making out memories look stunning!

We loved working with Dan and Marie. Our pictures were amazing. They truly captured everything we would have wanted. They took the time to capture pictures of nearly all of our guests. Everyone was talking about how personable they were and how fun they made it!

Appleseed Photography was hands down the best decision I made for my wedding (besides my groom, of course!) I spent several hours researching photographers in the area but when I caught sight of Appleseed’s work I was immediately impressed… the photos were beautiful; so vivid... Read More and artsy! I was so excited about the opportunity to work with them (and have amazing wedding pictures too!) that I bypassed my wedding planner and called them right away. They were quick to respond. They are a husband and wife team (Dan and Marie). Very easy to work with. I read another review that said “They bring such a fun and laid back energy.” and I couldn’t agree more! Dan (my main photographer) made me feel comfortable and had me laughing when I was sure I’d be nothing but nervous. He really made it fun. At one point he asked to take a photo of me holding a bunch of Twizzlers like a bouquet! It was unexpected but turned out to be such a cool and very unique picture! My wishes came true many times that day thanks to Appleseed. We even got to take some special photos with our youthful dog (all dressed up in a bowtie & super proud) right after our first look. Appleseed was very helpful and I’m comfortable saying they went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I was happy every step of the way. They were open to offer their professional advice on the set-up and placement of our homemade photo booth (paper-moon / starry night back drop) in terms of lighting, location, shadow, etc. And for our engagement shoot they reviewed photos of outfits I was contemplating and assisted me with selecting and coordinating the best options. They also helped me narrow down the options for engagement shoot location by sending me links to view previous sessions they photographed at the sites I was considering. So helpful. They gave me their honest opinions on the pros and cons of each place, like lighting restrictions, crowdedness/privacy issues, etc. When my wedding venue notified us last minute that we wouldn’t be able to have as much time to take photos (on-site) as we had originally planned, Appleseed kindly brought on extra support (3 people) to assure we got every photo possible. They made a point to ask about/become familiar with any sensitive family issues and managed to remember despite everything else they were juggling on my wedding day. True professionalism. I recommended Appleseed to my friend who needed a photographer for her maternity session. When I told her I was writing them a well-deserved review she asked me to add these comments about Marie (her main photographer): “She was very warm and accommodating to my (very pregnant) condition… always concerned with my comfort, making sure I wasn’t hot, tired, etc. She even called to make sure I brought water. She was so kind and I really enjoyed the shoot. It was much appreciated.” I’m so grateful I found Appleseed Photography. And I’m oh so grateful for my beautiful pictures- they’re absolutely incredible (Thank you Appleseed!!!)! I highly recommend Appleseed Photography to anyone seeking any kind of professional photography. I know they will be my go-to so long as I live in the FL/GA area!

Appleseed Photography is wonderful!

Marie and Dan from Appleseed were very responsive to all my questions before the ceremony. Marie helped me to create a wedding day timeline, and on the big day, when things did not go exactly as planned (weather and cranky wedding party member), Marie and Dan seamlessly... Read More adjusted the timeline and kept cool heads. At the reception, they were so pleasant in working with me to take all the photos I wanted of my and my husband's family. Although I have not yet seen the wedding photos, the engagement photos were gorgeous! I highly recommend Appleseed Photography.

They have such wonderful ideas and are willing to listen to your own ideas as well and they make you feel very comfortable as they take your pictures.

We found Appleseed Photography through the knot. We were a little hesitant to use a photographer we hadn't met, but because our wedding was out of town we had to take a chance. We were glad we did. We made a trip to the venue about 3 months before the wedding to find other... Read More vendors and scheduled a meeting and engagement session with Dan and Marie. They were phenomenal and very easy to work with. We received the proofs after about 3 week and were very happy. Dan and Marie had great knowledge of lighting and so much experience with hidden gem locations. The day of the wedding they were on time and again amazed us with their ability. We had a Catholic wedding at the Basilica in St. Augustine. After the ceremony there was a 3-hr. break till the reception. Dan and Marie were like energizer bunnies, racing us from place to place to take pictures. We were amazed with both their energy and the amount of quality pictures we got. During cocktail hour they raced up to the reception venue and got many pictures of the setup before any other guests got there. They even paid special attention to the wedding party ensuring the entire event was well documented. We would happily recommend Appleseed to anyone looking for a photographer.

I am an artist/graphic designer and have a very hard time choosing vendors because of my eye for creativity and detail.

The process has been fun, organized, and very fast! My sister had such a hard time getting back her photos from her photographer, I only wish she had had the same service that my husband and I had. The value of these photos is out of this world crazy. Appleseed photography is a hidden secret for brides looking for a value but who do not want to risk quality and that creative edge.
