I don't think there are enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe just how wonderful it was working with Sandra and her team at Predestined in Love! I've admired Sandra's work since first seeing her photographs pop up on my Facebook newsfeed, which was... Read More about two years ago. At the time, a friend of mine had recently gotten engaged and as a congratulatory gift, purchased her and her future husband an engagement photo with Sandra. Their session turned out lovely and about a year later I myself was engaged and received the very same gift. Our engagement photos turned out beautiful and we knew that Sandra and Predestined in Love would be the ones to capture our wedding day -- they were the first vendor we decided on and one of our favorites we worked with that day. Throughout the planning stages, Sandra was extremely helpful and responsive with helping us come up with a wedding timeline as well as suggestions for where we could have our first look. She even went so far as to scout out locations for us, which we so appreciated. The day of the wedding, Sandra, Ema (second shooter), and Johnny (videographer) all arrived promptly (and with smiles on their faces) and got to work capturing all of the small details as well as candids of everyone getting ready and enjoying the day. They are all extremely professional and kept on-task with the timeline I had created, while making sure all of the (many) portraits that we requested were taken (and that we were having fun!). They blended in perfectly with our family and friends and made everyone feel at ease as they were photographed. With more than 1,000 photos and 20 minutes of video footage -- I truly don't think there is one detail that they missed from our wedding day. They managed to take a photo (usually more than one) of everyone in attendance - which worked out great because we were able to include the photos of our guests as an enclosure with our thank you cards -- people absolutely loved the photos! It would have been more than enough for my husband and me to just enjoy the beautiful photos and video for years to come, but because of how warm and kind Sandra is, we also gained a lifelong friend. She truly cares about the people she is photographing and manages to form a genuine connection with each and every one of her brides and grooms. The next event in our lives that needs to be photographed - we know we will be calling Sandra and her team at Predestined in Love -- and you should, too!
