Gosh, where do I even start. It’s hard to hold back tears when writing this because it’s been quite a ride, and we can’t thank Lottie enough for everything she has done for us. The theme of our wedding could have literally been “sudden change o...
f plans”. I can’t even put everything that happened in this review because it could honestly turn into a novel. Moral of the story, if you want a photographer who bends over backwards for you, is beyond accommodating, professional, and straight up will treat you like family, then go with Lottie (EVEN during all these uncertain times).
My husband and I were referred to Lottie from my Matron of Honor, as that’s who they had worked with for their wedding (and had an amazing experience). Our original plan was to elope in Greece and then have a reception back home, so we were looking for photo coverage for both. While Lottie was unable to come to Greece due to already having booked another wedding for when we would need her, she was able to find a reliable (and amazing) photographer friend, Michelle, to shoot our wedding in her place. Fast forward a few months and then COVID happened. Due to the Level 4 Global travel ban we could no longer make our 5/14/2020 day work and we re-scheduled to July 8th hoping things would clear up a bit by then and we would be able to travel. For this new date, Michelle unfortunately was not able to shoot the wedding, however, Lottie said that she would be available instead. Through this, Lottie and the other photographer Michelle were able to flip everything from one photographer to the other, looking to transfer flights, hotel rooms etc, and gave us sound peace of mind that we wouldn’t lose out on any deposits or money we had paid towards everything in these unprecedented times. Long story short, we unfortunately did not end up going to Greece and did a small intimate ceremony with just our family, for which Lottie was then able to shoot.
Throughout everything, we had numerous emails going back and forth and a few Zoom calls to touch base, re-go over plans, and discuss everything so that we felt comfortable. She was so prompt, reliable, and above all, so flexible and accommodating.
When it came time for the ceremony, Lottie blew us away. She made us feel so comfortable, had a nice flow for pictures, and made everything feel just natural. We were blown away by her work and the time and effort that she poured into our wedding even when it turned out to be just a small ceremony.
The wedding may be over now, but I know if I ever need a photographer, I will not think twice about who to go with. Not only was Lottie an amazing photographer, but through everything, we have now gained an amazing friend.
