Linda did a fantastic job! First, she was the only photographer who called me back. Second, I accidentally missed my second meet up with her, but she was still willing to do my wedding!!

LJ Franklin was in short phenomenal! She helped keep me organized and on top of things before the wedding, even sending me helpful articles along the way. She gives you as much or as little help as you want in choosing what kind of poses you want and what will look great in the... Read More long run. She is very talented and has a fantastic eye. In addition to her talent she is incredibly patient in an environment that can feel rushed and overwhelming. She's great at winning over the non picture takers (like my husband) and making them look like naturals! I am so grateful we had LJ to capture our special day! She would be a great choice for any bride! Thanks!

LJ Franklin Photography Never Disappoints!

Reviewed on 12/01/2015

I have had the pleasure to work with Linda a couple of times. The first time was for my best friend’s wedding. Linda came early to take pictures of us getting ready and during this time she laughed with us and helped calm nerves before the ceremony. She took such an amazing... Read More variety of pictures and she was just so easy to work with, which is why choosing her as the photographer for my own wedding this October was an easy choice. Linda met with my husband and I months before our wedding and took the time to get to know who we were and what it was that we were looking for when it came to capturing our wedding day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding Linda spoke with me often about what I needed to help the day go smooth, she offered good advice and tips and she really helped ease the nervousness I felt about everything going as planned! The day of my wedding we had rain, which eliminated the possibility of all the beautiful outdoor pictures we were hoping for. I will admit that as a bride I was momentarily bummed, but we found shelter and Linda used what we had to make something more spectacular than I could have hoped for. When I looked through our wedding photos I smiled, I laughed, I cried, and the fact that we weren’t outside didn’t occur to me once. Linda captured so much more than just your standard bridal party photos. She captured the entire FEELING of the day; that’s the thing I love the absolute most about LJ Franklin Photography, she captures the moments that you don’t even realize are being captured; like the deep, full body laughter shared between my husband and I, and the love-filled look he was giving me that I didn’t see while our letters were being read to each other. Those are the pictures I keep going back to, those real moments where Linda somehow captured our personalities and love for one another in a photograph we didn’t even realize she was taking. Every time I look through my album, which is often, I can see so much more than a photograph of two people, I can feel exactly what I was feeling in that moment. Since this is my second time working with her and going through a wedding album she has done, I have come to know, that is just what Linda does. She gets to know you, she becomes more than a vendor, she is a friend, she learns what is important to you, she pays attention to every special moment of your day and she delivers something spectacular every time.

When we got back our photographs, there were pictures of the flowers and ALL the decorations that my wife took time to make. I RECOMMEND LJ FRANKLIN FOR YOUR WEDDING ! !

Linda is definitely worth every penny you spend! From my first interaction with linda to my last, she gets an A+ in her communication skills! She is always quick to respond back to questions. Her professionalism, light personality, and calming attitude helped me get through my... Read More wedding day. The moment she arrived at the county club, she took charge and knew exactly what photography shots to take and what scenes to use. Her assistant, Jay, was absolutely wonderful too. While Linda would take more posed shots, Jay would be in the background taking side shots (or vice versa). The photos turned out better than I ever imagined! I owe it all to Linda and her fabulous skills and artistic abilities! I plan on recommending Linda to everyone.

Linda captured our engagement photos as well as our wedding day and did an awesome job for both! She was very receptive to our ideas and made sure to have our must-have photos. I liked that she took a look at my Pinterest page of photo ideas so she could get an idea of poses and... Read More photo styles we liked. Our wedding day ended up being very cold and windy which resulted in the majority of our pictures being inside.

Linda was also able to capture some very creative and artistic shots which are some of my favorites. Linda was able to give us an awesome, stress-free experience as our photographer and she is definitely worth every penny as we ended up with beautiful photographs!

Perfect Day at the Country Club

After she did so, I looked at her top 3 and chose LJ Franklin Photography due to her beautiful portfolios and professionalism. We were very happy with our...

Linda also used the sunset and some different lighting techniques to provide some creativity for the day. Linda did a great job at catching every detail from our families down to our shoes.

We were so pleased with the experience and results of Linda's photography of my first daughter's wedding that we had to book her for my second daughter's wedding as well! Linda was very thoughtful during pre-wedding discussions; she listened to the wishes of the bride and...

Had a Blast

Reviewed on 5/26/2014 Megan M

My husband and I got married this last fall, and we knew that Linda was the photographer we had to have! We had experience with her before, and after a few emails and phone calls, we knew we had the day ironed out and ready. We cannot thank Linda enough for going out of her way... Read More (out of state, actually) to help us. Although that day can be stressful, she was in a great mood and was having a great time with us. It is easy to see how much she enjoys what she does, and that makes the experience all the better. We formed a shot list together before the wedding, which consisted of traditional photographs as well as fun, spontaneous shots. She had a great time manipulating the urban environment to suit our needs, mixing hard and soft elements for some truly unique photos that I do not think we could have achieved with anyone else. She is also great at finding the candid moments that we would have missed, and even jumped in the photobooth with us a few times, adding even more laughter and fun to an already superior experience! In addition to all of these elements, Linda is a genuinely kind and helpful person, who truly wants the best for you and your day. She will not try to rush through it like it is only a job, instead of her passion. The joy she takes in her profession will show in your photographs!
