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!!

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. If you check out her work, you’ll notice that she makes every photo a work of art. She has an amazing eye for scenery and back drops, her... Read More expertise and knowledge about lighting is evident, she’ll guide you through poses that are natural and flattering, and she also does amazing things in post-processing. On top of that, she’s incredibly sweet and professional, and she will make you feel totally comfortable in front of the camera, and throughout your big day. From the beginning of planning until we received our pictures and album, she was very communicative and prompt, always offering great suggestions for each major decision. Cami is pretty unbeatable for stunning results and huge value. Our pictures and the high quality album she sent us are beyond our expectations, and we will be treasuring them forever. Thank you, Cami!

I hired Cami for my engagement shoot after finding her on Instagram & seeing her unique work. After receiving our engagement shoot photos my husband and I knew we made the right decision by booking Cami for our wedding! Cami captures every moment with an artistic eye, her work... Read More is absolutely beautiful! Cami has the ability to look at what seems like a normal setting and somehow capture the beauty of everything, even on a cloudy day. Cami did an excellent job capturing every detail requested, she was by our side during the entire wedding making sure she didn’t miss anything, & she even went beyond her role almost acting as a coordinator (since we didn’t have one) making sure everything went perfect for us on our big day. In additional to her lovely work, Cami is very personable and easy to work with. BOOK CAMI! You won’t be disappointed! Best decision we’ve made!

From the beginning, she made things really easy by showing us her work and talking us through how she can edit the images to produce the amazing photos that she does.

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!
