Cindy photographed my wedding in November 2015. The wedding photos look amazing - everyone who sees them keeps commenting on how great they are. Cindy's photos are photojournalistic and they really captured the emotion that we were feeling on that day. She spent lots of time...

My husband and I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Cindy was professional and really made herself part of the process to wrangle our rather “unruly” family together to keep us all on time for the ceremony.

This is not just a job for her, she is here to make capture your wedding as your best day ever, and that she did! We recently visited with family that were unable to make it to the wedding, and going through Cindy’s pictures brought our wedding day back as if it was just yesterday. Her professionalism and caring nature made her an exceptional part of our day. Cindy is also very well known in the Bucks County area and knows all the best times of day by season to capture the best shots.
