Carina and Tricia were phenomenal at capturing all the amazing magical moments during our wedding weekend at Full Moon Resort in August. For wedding photography we really wanted someone who could capture the emotions, moments and fun, in addition to some nice family shots and Love Me Do completely delivered. Just as important, Carina and Tricia had such calm demeanors and were a great presence at our wedding. At one point my bustle came undone and Carina was at my side in a flash with safety pins at the ready. Our photographs came back very quickly so we were able to use them to make beautiful thank you cards. We need to sit down and select photos for our album and I know it’s going to be a hard task because there are just so many great shots to pick from! I wholeheartedly recommend Love Me Do Photography!
I don't have enough good things to say about Love Me Do Photography! They are incredibly talented photographers and truly wonderful people. They were very communicative and accommodating throughout the process leading up to the wedding. They asked really helpful questions to be able to understand our the dynamics of both of our families. On the wedding day, they had a very calming presence and truly captured us in our element. They were efficient with the timeline without cutting out any photos we would have wanted. Their photos show all the love, joy, and happiness that was in the room with us on our wedding day. And to top it off, we had the photos back sooooo quickly! Carina and Amanda are worth every penny and then some! :)
Our wedding was in March 2018. Carina and her team were great. She was able to document and capture our day in such a beautiful way for being a windy grey winter day. The photos they captured are priceless. So happy we went with Love Me Do Photography!
The photos speak for themselves even without my review-- they're stunning and beautiful. You can tell from the photos that they have an eye for design. The way the photos are framed and taken are on point! I am also in the wedding industry and I knew that I wanted Love Me Do to take my wedding photos LONG before I was even dating my husband. What makes it even better is that Amanda and Carina are so pleasant to work with! They're so laid back and calm which was really helpful on the wedding day. We also took our engagement photos with them which was so much fun! I am SO HAPPY with all of our photos. I LOVE them more and more I look at them!
Love Me Do did the most beautiful job of capturing our big day! They understood the vision we were going for and immediately made us feel comfortable around the camera. They were helpful and relaxed, which helped us worry less and just enjoy the day! Kate & Amanda were a great team; we couldn't be happier with our photos!
We used Love Me Do for both photo and video. Amanda and Carina were extremely responsive and so great to work with. They were friendly, easygoing and really captured meaningful pictures without it feeling like we were posing for hours. The photos and videos turned out amazing and we are so excited to have such wonderful memories captured by such wonderful people!
I was lucky enough to have Love Me Do photograph my September 2015 nuptials and could not have asked for a better experience. As someone who doesn't enjoy having her picture taken, it was important to me to find a photographer who would make me feel as comfortable as possible. Christina was our photographer and she was absolutely fantastic. Not only was she the coolest and sweetest person, but she also was really good about making sure things were running on time and keeping track of what was going on in the craziness of that day. She wrangled my family for portraits like a pro, got some amazing candids of our dog, and generally made our wedding 1,000x better. Not to mention the fabulous pictures she took! Long story short, I'm a big fan of Love Me Do and the amazing and fun women they have on their team. I will definitely be reaching out to them in the future for all of my photography needs.
I cannot say enough good things about Tricia. I've been to other weddings and events where the photographers are very hard to work with as they appear stressed and pushy. LoveMeDo and Tricia are the opposite. They are calm and accommodating and unbelievable sweet. I explained my vision for the pictures and the engagement shoot was proof of how amazing this team is. The shots were editorial instead of posed and our personalities and emotions were captured perfectly. Tricia was a joy to work with at the wedding keeping everything moving on time. I'm already sad I don't get to keep working with Tricia!
We cannot say enough about our wonderful experience with Love Me Do! We did engagement, wedding, video, and photobooth through Love Me Do, so we got to work with a lot of their amazing team. Our photographer Christina was really fantastic, how comfortable we felt and how much fun we had with her when we met was what sealed the deal for us. We loved working with her, and I kept in pretty close touch with her about creative details prior to the day of. Amanda was really great about working out the business side of things with us, really prompt in responses, and helpful with all the details. Our wedding ended up being in the middle of Hurricane Joaquin, that plus a limo catching fire (everyone was ok), threw a serious wrench in our timeline. We ended up being an hour off schedule because of the aforesaid limo issues but the Love Me Do team handled it like champs. Christina ended up driving me to the venue, and you would never have known we were so off schedule if you looked at the photos/video. All of them turned out so beautifully, and the whole team, Abi our second shooter, Tricia the videographer, kept their cool. They were honestly better prepared for the hiccups than the on-site wedding coordinator. The turnaround time for the video and photos was also really fast, just under 3 weeks. All in all, I am so happy we went with Love Me Do. This wasn't an area I wanted to skimp on or leave to chance, and I thought they were worth every penny!
We are beyond thrilled with Love Me Do who we used for our wedding photos and videography. The photos and video and the experience with Carina and Amanda surpassed our expectations. First, the photos: Carina shot our engagement shoot (which was included in our wedding package) and was lead photographer at our wedding. The photos from both are completely amazing--really beautiful. Our 4-minute highlight video, which was produced by Amanda, is so lovely. We weren't sure what music to pick, but Amanda selected the perfect song based on our scattered input. The video totally captures our wonderful day. Every time we watch it, it takes us back to our amazing day completely. We were on the fence about videography, but on seeing other Love Me Do couples highlight videos we were sold--it was one of the best decisions we made about the wedding. Next, the experience working with Love Me Do: Carina and Amanda were very easy to work with from the start. They were always quick to answer emails and friendly and helpful. We had a few phone calls with Carina where we talked about the vibe we were going for and I think she got us. On the day, the whole crew (4 ladies--2 photographers and 2 videographers) were fantastic. Our first look and portraits (which we took before the ceremony) ended up being two of my favorite parts of the day because it was a fun/lovely quiet break in the middle of a very busy day, and the pictures turned out amazingly. They were friendly and fun, and we felt completely comfortable with them. In an initial meeting Carina told us that they would be both everywhere and nowhere and that's how it felt: neither the photography nor videography in any way interfered with our big day, but they captured so many amazing and special moments. I'm not sure how they did it! Finally, our pictures were turned around incredibly quickly--we had all 1200+ of our photos edited and organized and our highlight video within three weeks of our wedding. Delivery of our photos too was a delightful surprise: the photos came on a beautiful custom thumb drive with a lovely surprise for us included. The whole experience was so wonderfully profession, chill and beautiful. I am SO glad that we chose to work with Love Me Do.
From the moment we met with the associate photographer Christina, I knew I wanted her to be my photographer. She had an assistant with her the day of the wedding, Abby. They both captured the day perfectly. I am so happy with our pictures, they are truly breathtaking.
Photos fit for a fairytaleReviewed on 6/28/2015 Colleen K
Carina is the most talented photographer I have ever worked with. Love Me Do has their own style of shooting and editing, and makes all their images look like fairytales. I seriously felt like a princess when Carina showed me the photos on her camera. Carina and her assistant were able to find the perfect location and perfect light for each and every shot. They were able to direct us in a way that made us look our best, and I really appreciate that. They had amazing ideas on how we should move and where we should look so I never felt like we were getting a bad shot. Overall, Carina made us feel very comfortable in font of the camera. I felt like we were always on the same page, and she was able to take our vision and make it real. She made both the engagement shoot and the wedding day so fun and enjoyable, and caught so many great moments.
I was SO nervous about the photos for our wedding because neither me nor my husband are really super photogenic or feel comfortable in photos. Carina and Amanda from Love Me Do where SO great at making us feel comfortable and natural and picking absolutely beautiful photo locations. They were the perfect combination of instructive but not pushy. They captured such natural types of pictures instead of a ton of very stiff, formal photos, which is exactly what we were hoping for. During our ceremony and reception, you would have barely even known they were there, but they managed to capture every element of the wedding beautifully. They were very prompt with getting us proofs and it's hard to choose even 100 because they took so many great one. The girls are so sweet to work with and very professional, yet friendly. We completely loved working with these girls and would highly recommend them to anyone.
The Best!Reviewed on 10/14/2014 Julia E
Kate is the best! We love her. She made me so comfortable in front of the camera, and her photographs are incredible. Would recommend her to anyone! The entire gang at Love Me Do is so helpful and just incredibly talented!
Excellent photographers!Reviewed on 5/12/2013 Catherine W
If you want your photos to look like the ones you drool over in wedding magazines - then go with this photographer! Amanda and Carina were wonderful to work with, I also liked that they were younger - they understood our ideas and we felt comfortable around them. I'm sure there are cheaper photographers, but these girls are definitely worth the cost!
Photos to last a lifetimeReviewed on 11/21/2012 Marissa Q
I cannot emphasize enough how fast your actual wedding day goes by-it's true it can become a blur of hair, makeup, flowers,family, friends and emotions. It is so crucial to have it all documented for years and generations to come. Amanda and Carina were fantastic- their eye for detail and lighting is incredible. These talented women were so easy to work with and flexible. Even in posed family portraits we did not feel uptight or uncomfortable in front of the camera. Even all of our guests felt comfortable being snapped on the dance floor. Highly recommended!
Best Photographers Ever!Reviewed on 11/12/2012 Ashley J
I had seen several photographs by Love Me Do in the many wedding blogs I had scanned through, but didn't think to check if they were in my area. I found out a friend of mine had booked the duo, Amanda and Carina, and (after asking if she minded) immediately checked to see if they could also shoot my wedding too! I am so in love with their work, and although I haven't received all of my photographs yet (it's only been 2 weeks! Typically it takes 3 weeks to get the photographs) I did see a sneak peek picture they posted on Facebook and I almost cried it was so beautiful! The girls were so helpful, God love them, my husband and I are super awkward and had no idea what to do for the pictures so we just stood there, and they were really helpful and patient with giving some direction during the photographing but never did they pose us or tell us to do anything too extremely specific. I couldn't be happier with Love Me Do, we knew from the very beginning that Photography was our most important part of the wedding so we did splurge a bit, but I know it's well worth it. The pictures will last forever, so I'm so glad they will be beautiful and not too stiff and posed.
Beautiful workReviewed on 9/27/2012 Laure b
Carina and Amanda are professional, creative and sensible. Our wedding photos are just beautiful- we will make multiple albums to fit all the pictures we want! They were helpful throughout the day and they're kind and respectful to everyone in our wedding party and our family. Their photographs captured the immense joy of our wedding day and they really have a knack for creating a large set of incredible images that evoke the spirit and the beauty of a wedding. I highly recommend them for someone looking for more of an artist's view of your wedding day.
Loved me some Love Me Do!Reviewed on 10/12/2011 Emily K
Nadine at LMD was great. She was really sweet and we got along well as soon as we met. She wasn't super pushy on the wedding day and was able to deal with a larger wedding party. I haven't seen the photos yet (wedding JUST happened) so I can't give 5 stars just yet, but I really got the sense that Nadine captured everything and I know that she did it beautifully. She is a doll and super talented. Can't wait to see the photos! I definitely recommend Nadine to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!
lovely work from two amazing ladiesReviewed on 1/14/2011 Alison C
My partner and I had Carina and Amanda shoot our December 2010 wedding. They are professional, easygoing, and are great at what they do. Their style is photojournalistic and they are excellent at capturing special moments that happen at your wedding-- not just the ceremony, but on the dance floor and during dinner. They also set up a photo booth, which was a lot of fun. They brought a printer and our guests could print out their pics, paste them in our guestbook, and write us a message there. It's one of our favorite souvenirs from our special night. Overall, they were an utter joy to work with. Highly recommended.
