I can't say enough about Cami. She's amazing! First of all, when you message her, text her or email her, she is amazingly fast with her responses. I don't think it ever took her more than 3 minutes for any of her replies. She's fun, creative and was willing to work with... Read More one of he most disorganized brides ever. She was so patient with me for the two months between initial contact and finally booking her. I was able to consult with her on what time to have the outdoor ceremony so that we'd be able to get the best sunset pictures and she was super flexible with the picture timeline: I cut an hour and a half off of our picture time before the ceremony and she still made it work! She made sure that we had a list before hand of what pictures we wanted to take and i told her that wedding coordinator was going to help corralle everyone for the pictures, but this never happened. She made it work though with her "can do" attitude and I'm so grateful that to her for making it work. I would have walked away from the hot mess of disorganized and ADD people that she had as subjects. I would definitely book her again. My only regret is that I didn't listen to her on a photo op in fear of getting my dress dirty. (She didn't push me though) I may have to call her for a "trash the dress" photo shoot now that I don't have a ceremony afterwards. THANK YOU SO MUCH CAMI!!

Cami promptly arrived at our wedding venue and was very patient with the bridesmaid and myself as we were running a little behind. She was quick on her feet and arranged our timeline to make sure we got all the shots that my husband and myself wanted plus all of her creative ideas. She wasn't afraid to do anything to get the perfect shot including fitting in tiny spaces, laying in mud, handled crazy humidity, and bouncing in and out of rain storms. Since it did rain on our wedding day Cami came to us and proposed to rearranged our outdoor exit to do an indoor group photo with our family using our streamers - something we did not think of beforehand but this type of 'in the moment creativity' is what what makes Cami so great! Cami is the absolute best, she even took time to dance with my grandfather and have fun herself! All of our guest raved over how amazing Cami was and we couldn't agree more!

If you have the chance to hire Cami for your wedding, then lucky you! Cami was a huge part of our wedding day on St. Pete Beach in December.

Where do I even start? There are so many good things I want to say about Cami - there just isn't enough space here! We organised a very intimate destination wedding from England, and hiring an amazing photographer was top of my list of priorities. I spent weeks researching... Read More photographers on The Knot, and none of them came close to the reviews left on here for Cami. Every word is true. She is the life and soul of the wedding - and every single one of my guests raved about how warm, friendly, talented and just generally amazing this lady was! It felt like we had our best friend beside us taking our wedding photos. I have never before met anyone who replies with a full e-mail within minutes of you contacting them, until I met Cami. I had so many questions, but Cami was there to answer them immediately. While other photographers may view you as just another number, with Cami you are treated as a VIP. We decided to opt for the engagement shoot, as we had never been in front of a professional camera before. Cami suggested BOK Tower which turned out to be the most beautiful setting for our photos - the flowers were in full bloom. We asked about bringing our two young children along for some family portraits, and Cami was fantastic at getting them to interact with the camera - which was no easy task! The engagement photos were just magical. We knew once we met Cami, that we had bagged ourself a gem! On our wedding day, Cami blew us away with the shots she managed to take of us - they were perfection. I need to build more walls in my house, as there isn't enough wall space for all the wedding photos I just NEED to display. :) My eyes welled up with tears of joy when I scrolled through our wedding proofs - she had managed to capture every single moment beautifully. And I couldn't believe how quickly the photographs were delivered to us! I worried that it would be difficult to entertain our very small wedding party of 15, as we didn't have a DJ. But between Cami, and our Caricaturist Rafael Diez, our guests were kept entertained the entire day, and have some beautiful shots to take home of themselves. We had so much fun with Cami, and when I think of her, I can picture her smiling and laughing - she was just part of our family. She truly is the most wonderful photographer, and her top priority is ensuring the client is happy. This isn't just a job to Cami - photography is her passion - and she is completely dedicated to her art. I had high expectations having looked at her portfolio, and the photos she delivered to us exceeded all my hopes and expectations. If you want magazine-worthy photographs, or shots that will go viral on pinterest - Cami is definitely your go-to girl!

Cami was the most important person at our wedding.  I am not sure it would have gone off as flawlessly as it did without her support, knowledge and true understanding of what Dan and I wanted from our wedding photos.  She was so much more than a photographer - she was basically... Read More our wedding day coordinator!  Our venue was one that she had not shot before but she took it upon herself to get there early and scope out the best places for pictures. She kept Dan and I on time throughout the entire day.  While my bridesmaids and I were getting ready, she was there ensuring the makeup and hair was picture perfect. There are three things I will never forget: 1) when she looked at me and said "ok Maureen, you need to start getting into your dress"  The day goes by so quickly, a bride easily loses track of her time! 2) at the end of the night we were supposed to have sparklers on the beach.  We were having so much fun with our friends and family we totally forgot about it.  She organized the entire thing! 3) We got married in October.  After our wedding weekend, I got busy with work, our honeymoon and the holidays that I completely lost track of time.  Cami was gently persistent on getting me to finalize the pictures to be edited and the album printed.  Even after the wedding she cared more than I did about getting the pictures finalized in a timely fashion!  This was the best day of our lives and we owe much of that to Cami.  She is amazing and talented.  Her work speaks for itself.  You can tell she is passionate about what she does and we have memories to last forever.  We feel like Cami is part of our family now!  We love her!
