We originally found Candice through just a general internet search, after initially struggling to find a photographer whose style we liked and identified with. Our engagement period was fairly long leading up to the actual wedding (October 3rd...
, 2015), so we met with Candice early on to get to know one another and see if she would be a good fit. Within the first ten minutes of the meeting, we knew that she was the perfect choice as our wedding photographer. She was clearly affable, professional, extremely experienced (though also still eager and committed to learning and improving her craft), and most importantly, understanding of what we wanted out of our engagement and wedding photography.
My then-fiance and I were fairly apprehensive about the photography aspect of our engagement and wedding period, as we're both not all that comfortable behind the lens of a camera, and neither of us feel particularly photogenic. That said, Candice assured us that this was all completely normal, and she went out of her way on multiple occasions to make us feel at ease before, during, and after and photos were taken. Our engagement session near the Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin was an incredible experience for both of us, and we couldn't have been happier with the way that the session flowed, and how the photos turned out. Candice was very adept at making us feel comfortable and at ease, which in turn led the final photos to look very natural, while we felt very relaxed. The day itself was a bit on the cloudy side, but the pictures were bright, colorful, and generally just great!
Leading up to the wedding, we had some concerns about the day itself, as the weather was projected to be cold, windy, and very rainy. However, Candice again eased our concerns by proactively addressing the weather, providing a bunch of umbrellas for us and our wedding party, and assured us that everything would be great regardless. Despite the weather, Candice tapped into her experience and professional nature, and took some absolutely fantastic photos, even managing to snap a few outside ones under cover of the umbrellas!
Overall, we couldn't recommend Candice more highly, and if we had to choose all over again, would absolutely select her as our wedding photographer ten times out of ten. She was a pleasure to work with, extremely professional, a great communicator, and most importantly, fun to work with! We had some great wedding vendors, but she certainly tops that list.
