Predestined in Love was the first vendor my wife and I booked for our wedding. We considered our wedding pictures the most important thing to have figured out. We went to several different wedding photographers and could not find the balance of being comfortable with them and... Read More the style of their photos. Then we remembered how much we loved the photos from a friend's wedding, so we asked who they used. That led us to our first meeting with Sandra. Right from the first few minutes Sandra was professional, friendly, and made us feel comfortable. We went through her portfolio and different options. One of the coolest things is that she takes both digital and film photos. After our meeting we briefly talked about it and then booked her. Now we were excited. We then scheduled our engagement pictures. The day of Sandra was patient and took us to multiple locations, directing us to get the best shot. When that day was done we received photo highlights and couldn't wait to see them all. When you have all the photos the best part is that there is no watermark and you can see all the pictures. On our wedding day Sandra was with my wife most of the day while she got ready with her bridesmaids. When the groomsmen arrived we waited until the first look. After that everything was more relaxed and we had a great time taking all different types of pictures. The one thing my wife and I loved when we booked Sandra was her style of photos, so while we asked for certain pictures we really trusted her eye when she directed us in different poses. The wedding itself went by so fast but pictures will be with us forever. We would recommend Sandra time and time again because we intend to use her for any future major event.

Sandra is a true romantic and it radiates from her when you meet her. I believe this is a special gift that helps her capture those truly special moments that you can relive over and over again. Not only are her photos absolutely stunning and of tremendous quality, but her... Read More personable and thoughtful nature allows you to relax and really enjoy the moment. We had so much fun working with her and I knew my photos were going to turn out beautiful -- and they did. She was there throughout the entire planning process and made sure that we were comfortable and had all of the shots that we wanted to get. Sandra is also extremely generous and courteous, and I so appreciate the extra hours, waived fees, and complimentary gifts that she so graciously gave to us. Her customer experience and craft is so amazing that we are booking a 1 year anniversary shoot, and I hope that one day, she can take photos of our growing family. I absolutely 100% recommend Sandra for your special day!!!
