Mindy and Marc were a dream to work with! From our initial meeting with Mindy, my husband and I just knew we wanted her to capture our big day. Mindy was extremely attentive and went above and beyond throughout our whole engagement leading up to the wedding. She kept us engaged... Read More with various questionnaires both informative and fun. We also loved that she made a cute video with a recipe related to our relationship (Mac & Cheese and a Jelly Doughnut Martini YUM!). Our engagement session was a lot of fun and prepared us for the wedding day pictures. The day of the wedding Mindy and Marc were always around capturing many moments that we didn't necessarily see. They made sure that every picture we wanted was captured. All of our guests especially loved that Mindy created a quick slideshow of some of our photos from the getting ready phase/ceremony for all to see during our reception. We are so glad we chose Mindy and Marc to capture our big day- we feel like more than just clients to them, we feel like friends.

Hiring your wedding photographer is no easy task! Mindy put up with a lot of back and forth from myself & my fiance. She answered phone calls & set up meetings, even an in person meeting - before we event booked her! Ultimately her level of experience, detail, her easygoing... Read More personality, and the many options we had for wedding photography are what led us to booking her. A few weeks ago we had our engagement photo session with Mindy and it went so smoothly. Leading up to the session, she sent multiple emails to make sure we were well prepared. Then, the day of, the weather didn't quite cooperate - Mindy was on top of it and picked a location that we absolutely LOVED! She explained everything for us so we were able to be natural in front of the camera. I would highly recommend Mindy and her services to any couple looking for a wedding photographer!

Mindy & Marc were excellent! They were very relaxed, easy going, and professional. I'm still amazed by the quality of the photos from our wedding, and the variety. The more candid photos have always been my preferred photo style, and they did a great job capturing the happiness...

The best thing I did when I planned my wedding was hiring Mindy to be our photographer. I couldn't have asked for better pictures of one of the best days of my life. She is easy going, yet worked diligently to get our large wedding party from Point A to Point B to Point C....

She is professional, trustworthy, and will make sure that you have every single picture you want of your special day. Since our engagement photos and wedding, she has since became a friend of ours and we have had Mindy do our maternity pictures and pictures of our baby girl. We are blessed to have come across such an amazing photographer and she will continue to capture pictures of our family as it groes!
