Deborah was amazing to work with! She spent time before the big day to get to know my fiancé and me and to understand what we were looking for. She has extensive experience at our venue - Keeler Tavern Museum - and was able to suggest great spots for pictures. She proactively... Read More confirmed all details with me as the day approached which I truly appreciated given everything I was trying to confirm. She was super prompt and accommodating during the wedding. She brought an assistant which was a great bonus as we had even more beautiful pictures to choose from. Both captured all of the images we wanted plus special moments we could not have planned for and details related to the venue and decor. We ordered and received prints from Deborah which were beautiful and professional. The prints arrived quickly. It was easy to share images with friends and family via her website inks. Deborah is great to work with and I highly recommend her.

I have got to let everyone know what an amazing person Deborah O'Brien is! My husband and I got married on August 14th, 2016, and the day just before our wedding, the photographer we had hired cancelled on us because of a family emergency! After panicking and having a mild... Read More heart attack, I remembered receiving promotional emails from Deborah and contacted her. I figured it would be a long shot getting a photographer less than 24 hours before the wedding and although she was away on vacation, she responded to my panicked emails and voice mails immediately and completely pulled through for us! When I made that panicked call to her, even though it was the first time we had spoken, she spoke to me as if we were friends for years and promised me that everything would be ok. In a matter of a half an hour, she had a photographer booked for us and kept her promise, everything was ok! I was so relieved! Her photographer Charlene arrived early, spent the whole day with us, and took beautiful pictures! She was non intrusive, respected our personal preferences for what we wanted, and after a bit it felt as if she was also a guest at our wedding celebrating with us! It was a blessing that our original photographer cancelled! I highly recommend Deborah!

We decided immediately to hire her company to photograph our wedding. My family... Read More is scattered around the globe and my David's around the USA, as a result we don't see each other often. Kate, who photographs for Deborah did a wonderful job of helping us capture memories of our loved ones on our special day, which we shall always cherish.
