Hands down the best decision we made for our wedding! Our wedding photos turned out absolutely stunning and they more than surpassed our expectations.

She took time to get to know us as a couple beforehand and was extremely thorough during the planning process, helping me to consider things I hadn't thought of which I hugely appreciated since I planned my own wedding. Marie and John were an absolute joy to work with and made us feel like we were just hanging out with our friends the day of the wedding. Throughout the day she kept me calm even when other things became overwhelming. Afterwards she was extremely timely in getting us the photos and they did not disappoint! I was just so impressed by her professionalism and her character, but at the end of the day the most important thing was the result. Our wedding photos were breathtaking! I literally want huge prints of every single one we received. As a bride on a tight budget, I would pay 3 times over to get Marie and John again. All of our friends and family were so impressed with the photos and we would recommend their services without hesitation!

Marie, John, and her team are top notch. I seriously cannot recommend them enough. After my previously hired photographer went MIA, Marie calmed my nerves and made sure every detail of my special day was taken care of. She seriously went above and beyond. Marie kept in... Read More constant contact with us before the day and asked questions about details I didn't even know I needed the answers to, but ones that ended up being absolutely pertinent. She even went as far as to track down some Aleve I had packed when my groom felt a migraine coming on during the reception. Photography the day of the wedding day was organized, fun, and seamless. I can't say enough about how the photographs turned out. They are incredibly stunning and mean the absolute world to me. Marie has a gift and I feel blessed to have found not only a photographer, but also a lifelong friend.

Marie and John were absolutely phenomenal to work with! My photographer cancelled on me a few months before my wedding and it was a blessing in disguise. My husband and I both fell in love with Marie during our initial consultation and knew we had to have her as our wedding... Read More day photographer. She was enthusiastic, very patient with all my questions/requests, and proactive in planning for our big day. Not to mention they are reasonably priced for the product and service they provide. Marie and John arrived way before they were scheduled to in order to capture pictures of our wedding party getting ready. We were on a tight schedule on our wedding day, and Marie and John made the most of our time. They had visited our venue and wedding location prior to our big day and planned out where to take specific shots. Their proactive planning made our day go so smoothly. During our ceremony, they were invisible. I was amazed at our ceremony shots because I didn't even realize at the time they had been taking pictures so close to us! Lininger-Rood continued to amaze us even after our wedding. Marie went straight to work editing, and we had access to our fully edited wedding gallery during our honeymoon! We could not have asked for a better wedding photographer and we are so happy we chose Lininger-Rood Photography to capture our special day. Marie is very professional and a true artist. I highly recommend choosing Lininger-Rood Photography to capture your wedding day memories-you won't be disappointed!
