Working with Penny was AMAZING! Penny took our engagement and wedding photos. She was incredibly helpful and professional every time we met with her. Penny took the extra time to meet us outside of our event a few times, and really got to know us as individuals and as a couple.... Read More My husband is a shy guy that doesn’t really enjoy getting his photo taken, but Penny made us both feel so comfortable that we couldn’t help but be our silly selves. Even 6 months after the wedding, our guests are still telling us every day how wonderful she was at the event and how great her work is. My husband and I love every photo she took!! I would recommended her to everyone needing a photographer. You can’t get better then Penny!

Penny's personality is so fun and makes you feel comfortable!

I reached out to Penny for a wedding boudoir photoshoot in April. I wasn't sure what to expect because I've never done boudoir photography before. I was expecting it to be pretty uncomfortable and awkward. Boy, was I wrong! Penny was flexible on the location but I asked if...

She has one of those personalities that everybody can relate to. She made me feel SO comfortable and the photos turned out great. She made me look AMAZING!!!! And she turned them around really quickly too. I would recommend Penny to anyone looking for great quality photos with a fun photographer that makes them look great!

We found Penny at our local Bridal Extravaganza and were blown away by her personality and photography skills. Penny was great to work with because of how nice and easy going she is. She really has a way of making you feel relaxed so that she can capture the "real you". Penny... Read More has a lot of imagination so along with the traditional shots, she is able to capture some amazing one-of-a-kind portraits that really tell a story. The day of our wedding, Penny was very discrete and was able to take amazing pictures without getting in the way of the ceremony or event. At the reception she was able to get in the middle of the action and capture the scene (like a ninja!). I really treasure every photo and can't believe our luck to find such an amazing photographer in Penny.

My husband and I are so fortunate to have found Penny (and her assistant/husband Earl) to photograph our important day. We understood the importance of good chemistry with our photographer and we felt it straight away. Penny and Earl's fun, easy going, and adventurous... Read More personality was a perfect fit for us! Her extensive knowledge on weddings and our venue (Green Acres) made planning the schedule effortless. She had great ideas and listened to ours as a couple as well. We did our first look in the woods and her enthusiasm for our connection to the location and desire to incorporate it into our photos was contagious. She worked well with our bridal party and was fun to have with us all day. Most importantly, Penny and Early love dogs and know what they are doing when it comes to photographing them. It was essential to have a photographer that could include our dog into the photos since she was joining us for the celebration. Our dog loved them even before she knew they had peanut butter! We could not imagine anyone else taking our photos on our wedding day. Amazing experience-we highly recommend Penny Photographics!

Her professional and fantastic work are paired with a great and fun personality. I love that she runs her own business so you never get the run around and know exactly who you are working with compared to the large companies that pair you with someone you may have never met for your photos. Her prices are also incredibly reasonable compared to other small business photographers we researched. We are very pleased with the whole experience of working with her and with our wonderful photos!

One of the best quotes is by Mae West which reads, “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” For me, the “right” way to live is to travel the world and see all of the wonderful places, experience as many opportunities as I can, value moments over products, and to do it all with my favorite person at my side. Connecting with other amazing couples to tell their stories in a creative way is my passion and is what my photography is all about. My name is Penny and I am a local + destination photographer creatively capturing adventures in love.
