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.

Photography was one of the things I really wanted to turn out for my wedding because it's the part of the wedding that stays with you the longest and that you cannot re-do.

Though we had an unseasonably warm day in February (75 degrees!), Tracey made sure that we got the photographs we wanted even with a tight timeline for getting it done. I was so impressed by how quickly she organized our sprawling extended families for the traditional portraits. Tracey also really encouraged the bridal party to get creative and enjoy our on-location shots at Wash U and the Chocolate Bar. We ended up with some of the most beautiful, 1920s-inspired photographs I could have imagined. To top it all off, our sparkler entrance and kiss ended up being one of my favorite photographs of the entire day. Tracey is fantastic. If you want beautiful photographs, book her!
