From our first meeting for our engagement shoot to our last picture at our wedding( July 9,2016) Deborah was amazing! Deborah was professional, great with our guests, and captured everything we wanted at the wedding. The morning of our wedding Deborah got there early and really... Read More captured the excitement of getting ready with my family and bridal party. Deborah ended up staying throughout the whole reception, and even took pictures as she was leaving. With in 3 days of our wedding, Deborah already had some pictures edited and sent to us. We just received all of our edited photos less than 3 weeks after our wedding. Deborah was amazing to work with, and my husband and I are so happy she was there to capture the night!! Danielle Munroe

Deborah was the photographer for my wedding and did an absolutely amazing job. My wife and I loved how friendly and professional Deborah and her other photographer Kate were. Deborah accommodated our busy schedule to do an outstanding engagement photo session with us and the... Read More photos came out beautiful. I'm not really the one who's super into photo's but my wife and mother in law gushed over the beautiful pictures that were taken. Deborah has an eye for great shots as she helped make even me look good. She definitely knows what shots will work and which ones do not. Our wedding photos were fantastic and we've already had all of our friends and relatives comment to us how amazing the pictures came out. Deborah and Kate brought us out to the best spots at our venue and really took the perfect shots to capture our big day. We honestly could not be happier with the job that she did. If you are looking for a professional, friendly and knowledgeable photographer for your wedding, Deborah should be your first call.

We couldn't have asked for a better, more detail oriented photographer! From our first meeting over a year ago til our last shot a month ago, Deborah has been amazing. We had her shoot our engagement session at Elizabeth Park and Trinity. She was so enthusiastic, excited and... Read More very experienced with lighting and shadowing. We were very happy with how the pictures turned out, we couldn't wait to see how she would shoot the wedding. At the wedding she was there from the minute I stepped out of the limo to the minute the last guest left. She took the traditional shots, candid shots, detailed shots and every shot in between. She was right there when someone else was taking a picture of a couple or group. We can definitely say that our wedding was well documented and Deborah totally exceeded our expectations. She truly captured our special day.

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 scheduled a meeting with Kate O'Brien based on the recommendation of our venue (Dolce Norwalk) as well as reading the reviews on The Knot. Deborah was very warm, professional and very reassuring. 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.

Looking forward to seeing the final version! Thanks Deborah and Kate.
