Gerri and her team truly felt like other family members attending our wedding that just happened to take amazing photos of the best day of my life. Gerri is very professional and organized and truly wants to please her brides and grooms. She plans with you ahead of time to... Read More make sure she captures everything important to you which put me at ease knowing I had a few unique moments throughout the day. She took the time to come early to photograph everyone getting ready and was with us the entire day which was very special and something not all photographers do. We received our photos back quickly and I loved every single one of them. Thank you so much to Gerri for capturing our wedding!

We just got to view the pictures from our daughter's wedding and they are wonderful! Serendipity does a great job at capturing the beauty of the day without going over the top with a lot of special effects and theatrics. Courtney was our photographer and she and her assistant... Read More were very pleasant the day of the wedding and knew exactly how to get the right shots but stay in the background of the day. It must be a hard line to walk, but they did it quite well. My daughter is normally rather camera shy, but Courtney was great at making her feel at ease and the pictures reflect a relaxed bride! We are very glad that Serendipity was our photographers and highly recommend them!

Simply the BEST.

I used Serendipity for my wedding and I am beyond pleased and thankful. Gerri and her team are VERY kind, professional, knowledgeable, and an absolute blast to work with. Of course my husband and I happened to pick the hottest day of the year; Serendipity was so accommodating... Read More to us and our bridal party despite the heat. I never once felt the pressure to "decide what photo to do next" because they were always offering suggestions and knew which positions would look wonderful. Not only did our wedding photos turn out better than expected (you couldn't even tell we were sweating buckets!), our engagement photos were so much fun to do and turned out great. I can't say enough about Serendipity, they were my favorite vendor to work with and I'd use them again for future photography needs (baby/family/pet etc.). I'd highly recommend Gerri and her amazing team for anyone looking to have their wedding day captured by the best. They are simply the best.

Loved everything about our experience with Serendipity. Gerri and Courtney were fabulous! They made sure to get every little detailed shot. They were so easy to work with and our photos are AMAZING! I am having trouble picking out the best ones to make into prints because they... Read More are all so good. We also used Tim the videographer. He made you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captured the day in real life! I highly suggest the videography portion in addition to the photographs because it captures what still shots aren't able too!

My husband and I could not have been more grateful for not only the incredible level of professionalism and skill that was displayed on our big day, but the excellent communication and organization Serendipity provided to help our day be captured seamlessly. Being a... Read More perfectionist and organized bride, it gave me such peace of mind to know that I had a photographer who not only matched, but exceeded, my personal standard in both of these areas. Aside from her outstanding performance on the professional side of things, her work is far superior to any photographer I have ever used. Gerri and her staff have such a gifted "eye" and perspective that they bring to the table. We were overjoyed by not just the quality of lighting, clarity, etc. of our pictures, but by the authentic and raw nature Serendipity Photography captures. Our photos were not an accumulation of cliche poses and looks, but a composition of the true feeling and spirit of our day. It was the candid moments filled with smirks, giggles, tears, and locked eyes that they were able to capture that made our pictures so special. We are so thankful we went Serendipity Photography and have such beautiful pictures to remind us of how special that day was. I absolutely recommend using her---you will NOT be disappointed!

Serendipity Photography is so great! Gerri is kind and fun to work with. They offer several different packages so you can really choose based on what is important to you. We had Gerri do our engagement photos and our wedding photos, so she was able to get used to us before the... Read More big day. The engagement photos were beautiful! Gerri used light and nature to make pretty shots without anything looking too posed or overly edited. And for our wedding, Gerri met with us in person beforehand to get all of the details she would need and she created a timeline for us for the wedding day that was so helpful! Highly recommended!

There are literally not enough kind words to say about Serendipity! Gerri, Courtney and Tim (Videographer) are kind, warm, talented, witty, creative...I could go on and on. Tyler and I feel like we have known them for years! From our engagement session to our wedding day we...

I would recommend their services to anyone! New baby, newly engaged, family glam session?? Use Serendipity!

As soon as I found out my daughter was engaged, the first call I made was to Serendipity Photography. I wanted to make sure Gerri saved the date because I knew no other photographer would do. Gerri had taken Senior pictures for both of my children and I feel in love with her... Read More style then. We have already gotten the wedding pictures back and they are just beautiful. You forget that she is taking pictures because she makes you feel so comfortable and that comes through in all of the pictures. Gerri and Courtney spent the whole day with us from makeup and hair to the sky lantern sendoff at the end of the night. Professional, warm, funny and just great to have around. I can't say enough good things about Serendipity Photography!!

Wow! Serendipity Photography has left me speechless with the amazing job they did for my October 2015 wedding. From the moment I met with Gerri, I knew she was going to be the most perfect person for the job. During our entire engagement and planning period, I was in touch with... Read More Gerri about all sorts of details, including our engagement photos and the Save the Dates- she was ALWAYS quick to respond to emails, very knowledgeable about the best places for photos and patient with my ideas. Our engagement photos turned out perfect and Gerri was quick to get our Save the Date photo cards back to us so we could get them in the mail. On the day of our wedding, Gerri and Courtney and Tim were SO wonderful. They were patient with our family while taking formal photos, never rude or pushy. They were patient with the bridal party and they listened to everything I told them About what I wanted for my photos. We had access to our images in just over 4 weeks after the wedding day and I am so happy with how they turned out. I highly recommend Serendipity Photography for your wedding photography needs! I know that my Husband and I will be returning customers in years to come as our family grows!

My wife and I could not have asked for a better photographer for our BIG day. From the first conversation we had with Gerri she and her team made us feel confident that we would be taken care of all the way to the end. The engagement session and wedding photos where more then... Read More we could have asked for. Not only was the quality of the photos phenomenal but Gerri and her team where so accommodating and friendly Erin and I didn't have to worry about a thing.

When I got engaged there was no question who we would use for our photographer. Gerri did my senior pictures and several of my friends and family have used Serendipity. Courtney was there first thing in the morning while we were at the salon and then back again throughout the... Read More day. Their willingness to go with the flow eased Nate's and my stress. They captured the most perfect memories from the salon, the ceremony, in between, and reception. We never felt rushed and felt truly cared about. Courtney and Tim stayed until they got all the pictures they felt were needed. They didn't have a set time to just get in do their job and then leave. They made our day a priority and treated us as such. I will be used Serendipity again in the future!!

After hearing a few horror stories of other photographers in the Toledo area, I know we couldn't possibly have made a better choice (absolutely no horror to this story).
