Love and Love Photography could not have done any better for my wedding. Tracey was an absolute rockstar during our engagement photos as well as for our special day. She's extremely dynamic, creative, versatile, and has an awesome taste that can't be matched! Tracey made sure... Read More that my wife and I were more than pleased throughout our entire process; engagement photos, planning the photography for our wedding, designing our wedding album, everything! She was an absolute delight to deal with. One thing I particularly loved about her was how prompt and timely she was at all times. If I, or my wife, ever had a question, she was always responsive in a very timely manner. She always went out of her way to make sure that my wife and I knew exactly what was going on at every moment. I would 100% confidently recommend Tracey to anyone for any occasion. She's extremely reasonable, personable, fun, and creative. I can say that we've made a friend during this process and look forward to any sort of chance we may get to get more work done with her! Love and Life is really A+!

We couldn't have ask for anything better from Love and Life photography. Tracey was just a pleasure to work with. The moment I saw her photos I knew we needed to have her as our photographer. She was such a trooper for our engagement photo shoot. She had surgery scheduled the... Read More day after and was doing some sort of fast while being out in the heat to get these gorgeous photos of us. We hadn't settled on a theme for our wedding at this point and when we told her eventually we wanted a gatsby theme she even offered for us to go in her studio to do gatsby themed photos. We were so incredibly happy with our engagement photos we already had that we didn't end up taking her up on that offer, but just the fact that she offered that was great. I just loved having someone taking our photos that was just as excited as we were to see how everything turned out. It is incredible how creative she is. Just step into her studio and it really says it all. Fast forward to the wedding my husbands father got sick and ended up not being able to make it to the wedding and she has offered to try and recreate something for us once he gets better so we can have those photos with him. We will definitely be taking her up on this offer. I would definitely recommend Tracey to anyone looking for a photographer.

Tracey is every bride's dream photographer. She is warm, energetic, and extremely creative. I am an incredibly "know-what-I-want" type of person, and especially was when it came to my wedding. And she was able to get shots that I couldn't have even dreamed of. She is a great... Read More person to have around on your wedding day. She's reliable, prompt, and she gets her shot. Additionally, I have never seen a photographer put so much effort into post-production. She will play with filters, color, b&w, etc. until the shot is perfect. Something I love about her photography is that even if you get stuck with a crappy day on your wedding, she can pull a great shot out of it by enhancing or de-enhancing the clouds/rain/snow, etc. And she gives you so many options, she lets you see every version of every photo she takes. Some other photographers explicitly told me that they won't do that and that they get the final say on what we see. These same photographers also said that they will not use Photoshop in their photos. I'm sorry, but on my wedding day, feel free to Photoshop away! Make me look perfect! :) And Tracey did. She really is the greatest. You can trust her with the most important day of your life.
