Choose Whitney Lee! She's the BEST!Reviewed on 5/11/2014 Brie N
My husband and I used Whitney for our engagement AND wedding photos. We looked at and spoke to a lot of different photographers and we are so glad we picked her! Whitney is really easy to work with and does incredible work. I should mention that I have 2 professional photographers in my immediate family and they ALSO agree her photos are amazing. (I wanted them to have fun and relax at our wedding which is why I did not employ them.) At our wedding she got all the requisite family photos we asked for and they are beautiful. She is great finding creative locations within a venue.More importantly she really captured the feel of our wedding with her candid shots. We have so many great photos that I am having trouble narrowing them down for a wedding book. Honestly, I have 300 FAVORITE pictures. Not only does she have an excellent eye and great skill, she was essentially invisible during the entire wedding and reception. We have all these amazing photos but I don't remember seeing her take the pictures. The beautiful photographs were all truly candid. She has incredible talent both for outdoor natural light and indoor flash photography. Whitney is also a really kind, fun, sweet, caring person. My entire family was impressed with how well she worked with my mom who has Alzheimer's. Whitney's cheerful voice and smiling face managed to get some great pictures of my beautiful mama who isn't always focused on the moment. Our wedding day was amazing - I'm so glad we had Whitney to captured it exactly as we remembered. I can't say enough about our engagement photos as well. It can be awkward having a photo shoot done but Whitney made it fun and comfortable right away. She was also up for anything and when we suggested getting some photos of us on paddle boards she didn't balk at the idea and got some AWESOME pictures. Whitney Lee Photography is the best option if you want gorgeous, artistic photos and a true professional at your event.
Whitney is AMAZING!Reviewed on 10/30/2013 Shauna G
We fell in love with Whitney the first time we met her! She is so laid back and has a great sense of humor. She has a great eye for photos and her pictures turn out beautiful. We used her for our engagement pictures as well as the wedding. Team Whitney! :)
Choose Whitney LeeReviewed on 10/04/2013
Just take a look at her work, so many good things to say about her and her photography. She has a way to make you feel comforatable and guide you through the sessions. I am not a picture taker, but she made me and my husband feel comfortable. From my engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures, I am completely satisfied with my choice of choosing Whitney Lee.
Great Photographer!Reviewed on 10/03/2013
I spent the longest time trying to find the right photographer for our wedding. I have two older sisters and they were both very disappointed with their wedding pictures since they didn't research the photographers they chose. I knew I wanted the best photographer that would fit in our budget and spent a lot of time researching. I came across Whitney's website and knew I had found our photographer. She was prompt in responding to me when I first inquired about her availability and instantly made me feel comfortable. We chose to do engagement pictures with her before the wedding and we were very happy with how they came out. Whitney and Erica did our wedding and our family and friends fell in love with them. They were quick to get formals done so everyone could get to having fun at the wedding. Whitney has such a fun personality and we were so glad we chose her for our big day.
amazing photosReviewed on 10/02/2013 Emma G
We looked into countless photographers online before finally settling on Whitney Lee as our photographer for our big day, and I am so glad that we did. From the moment we met for our engagement photos, I knew it was the right choice. She made my fiance and I feel immediately at ease and it really shows in our pictures. In the weeks leading up to our wedding day, Whitney made sure that she knew who the main players in our wedding were and what sort of posed pictures we wanted to make sure happened. On the big day, Whitney captured all of the details, big and small. Now that we have our final pictures, I am absolutely sure choosing Whitney was the best choice I could have made. Her fantastic work captured the happiness of our big day in a way we could never imagine. I can't wait to have another big occasion to hire her again.
Love Love Love!Reviewed on 10/02/2013
If you're looking for a fun, eclectic, yet professional photographer, look no further! Whitney Lee is amazing! Whitney was my photographer for my wedding and I am not the easiest person to deal while taking photos. However, she knew exactly how to position me and everyone else for that matter to make the photos come out perfect. As difficult and uncomfortable I might have been, Whitney and her two assistants were amazing and patient :) She also is aware of the sentimental value of certain things involved in a wedding that need to be captured. For instance, I had one yellow rose in my bouquet and she knew that it represented my late grandmother and how important it was to me. She took my rings and my husbands ring and put them inside the yellow rose and caputred the most beautiful photo I've ever seen. It is one of my favorite photos ever! Long story short....She and her people are amazing and if I could do it all over again, I'd choose her without hesitation! :)
The Master of Capturing EmotionsReviewed on 9/24/2013 Andrea P
We enlisted Whitney Lee herself to shoot our engagement session & photograph the big day. Whitney is not only awesome as a person, but she has a very keen eye and is basically a ninja when it comes to sneaking up for candid shots. Throughout the whole process, Whitney responded promptly to emails and was very professional in organizing shoots and learning the "who's who" of my wedding. She is flexible in that she operates very smoothly on her own, but also values the creative input of her clients. We were a little apprehensive about sitting for our engagement shoot, but she made us feel so comfortable, like she was an old friend. I think her laid-back atmosphere is part of how she gets her photos to look so natural. She is also really honest and isn't afraid to tell you or your future hubs to "suck it in" or "stop squinting". That is absolutely priceless advice to me! On wedding day, Whitney and her assistant Romina were very organized and not only captured all the formal photos, but also ran our photo booth and snagged a ton of great candids. Looking back at the photos, you'd think everyone at the wedding had been laughing-gassed; the moments that Whitney captured are so full of raw emotion. We will most definitely suggest her to our friends when their big day comes!
Whitney is my fave!Reviewed on 9/24/2013
My husband and I searched for a local photographer to do our engagement photos and I came upon Whitney Lee's site... I absolutely loved her portfolio. It was so upbeat and modern and fresh-feeling and "Austin". (If you've been here, you'd know what I meant). She was super friendly and easy to warm up to.. especially considering we took our photos on a 35 degree February day lol. But you couldn't tell it looking at the pictures (black and white, with the hearts.. that's us :-) ). It was a no-brainer that we'd also hire her for our wedding and 2 years later he we are about to book her again for our twins baby photos! I would totally recommend her to anybody I know!
Summer wedding 2011Reviewed on 9/23/2013 Kelly M
Whitney was great to work with, fair prices, flexible schedule to meet for photos and had great ideas for unique shots. She did a great job capturing the special day.
A-mazing!Reviewed on 9/23/2013 Morgan M
Whitney Lee is talented and personable. She's sharp and has a thorough portfolio to show her range of shots. When she sat down with my husband and me, we immediately felt comfortable knowing that she was going to make it a priority to capture beautiful, real moments during our engagement photo shoot and wedding day photography. She gave excellent direction that helped put us at ease in front of the camera to capture our love and affection. We'd recommend her to anyone looking to capture a special moment whether that includes family portraits, engagement photos, or wedding celebrations.
We loved our pictures!Reviewed on 9/22/2013 Erin S
Getting quality wedding photos was incredibly important to me and my husband. They are, of course, the main source of our wedding memories. We did a lot of research before selecting Whitney to do our photography. We loved her creative shots and fun use of lighting and color. You could tell the whole time pictures were being taken that she was carefully thinking about the best way to capture the moment in front of her, and we ended up with gorgeous engagement, bridal, and wedding photos. We couldn't have been more happy with the end result. Whitney is fun, professional, and extremely talented!
Whitney rocks!Reviewed on 9/21/2013 Maria M
After doing much research, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted Whitney to shoot our wedding. Her portfolio met the look and feel of our wedding perfectly and she did not let us down. First, her personality is approachable, fun and creative while still unbelievably professional. You can tell she loves her job! The package we got included an engagement shoot which originally I didn't really care about but the photos came out amazingly well and we now have them printed and framed around our house. As for the wedding, we could not asked for better photos. She did a great job of making our relatives feel comfortable for the mandatory family shots but my favorite photos by far are the candid photos. She knew how to capture each joyous moment and the interaction between the guests at exactly the right time. If you are looking for a professional, creative and playful photographer for your wedding, look no further than Whitney Lee - she rocks!
Amazing Wedding PhotographyReviewed on 9/20/2013 Megan h
I can't say enough good things about Whitney Lee! I met with her after a recommendation from a friend and by the time I left our meeting, I had decided Whitney Lee Photography was the perfect option for our wedding. Her pictures are nothing short of amazing - simultaneously creative and classic. And on your wedding day, you want a photographer that you are comfortable with personally and professionally - Whitney fit the bill. Our engagement session was fun and the pictures were everthing we wanted. On the wedding day she and her team were everywhere but remained "invisible". They captured moments I didn't even realize they were around for but later saw in the pictures. My husband and I still look through our photos all the time and smile. She captured our perfect day perfectly. - Megan Hamilton
SO pleased!Reviewed on 9/19/2013 Megan V
We found Whitney through a friend of my dad's and we were SO thrilled with our choice. One of the best things is how you OWN the photos when she is done. You don't have to pay an arm and a leg to get the entire set of photos. She gave a discount for our wedding being on a Friday, which offset the fee for her to travel out of town for our wedding. We came to Austin to do our engagement photos because we had friends there and we knew she would know the perfect spots. She did! What a beautiful location she chose! She made us both feel so at ease, and she even made my fiance comfortable getting his photos taken, which is really hard to do. She was more than happy to include our dog in some of the photos and we treasure those. On our wedding day, everyone was gushing about how nice and great she was. She remembered family names and relationships based on the list I sent her. I was so impressed. She really did her homework! She is just such a sweet person and we were so pleased with everything. Everyone in my family said how great she was and we plan to use her in the future for any family photos, maybe pregnancy photos in the future! Thank you so much Whitney!!
Don't Even Consider Anyone ElseReviewed on 9/19/2013 Karen K
The most important thing in a wedding photographer is of course, the quality of the photos. But in order to get fabulous photos, you need someone who is organized, stays calm, relaxes the subjects, and can adjust to whatever the event throws at them. Whitney Lee is all of these things and more. Her quality and creativity is so obvious in her work. But what you can't see in the photos, is her calm and wonderful personality. The only thing sweeter than Whitney was the wedding cake! When people comment on my daughter's wedding, what they seem to remember most, was this wonderful professional. I am the mother of the bride and also the event coordinator. Whitney knew exactly what to do all day leaving me free to focus on the million other things that come up on the big day.I am so pleased with the results and the entire experience I could go on and on.
Whitney Lee Photography was the perfect wedding photographer for us...Reviewed on 9/19/2013 Khanh N
Whitney Lee is simply amazing! I sought out her services when I got engaged because I had attended two of my friends' weddings who used her and I was so impressed with the resulting pictures. The two brides also highly recommended her to me. The photos were vibrant, beautiful and at the same time had this great quality due to her artistic eye. When the time came for my wedding, I attended the requisite Bridal Extravaganza but made a beeline for Whitney's table. Her pricing is reasonable and on par with others in Austin but what sealed the deal for me was knowing that I would have an album full of awesome and unique photos to cherish. She did both our engagement and wedding photos (I would have used her for bridal photos too but ended up not doing any) and somehow managed to get my fiance/husband to actually crack a smile in some photos! This is a testament to how easy it is to work with her and her sparkling personality even at the crack of dawn. We were also able to bring a few of our own props that literally allowed us to personalize the shoot and that was really great! At the wedding she was able to direct the formal photos with the families, aka the herding of the cats, look easy. Many of my family members commented on how painless the process was and how pleasant she was and skilled with the camera. She and her crew were able to truly capture the joy of the day and so many wonderful moments in the photos. Booking Whitney Lee was one of the best decisions we made. I have also recommended her to many of my friends without hesitation. I should mention that I actually moved my wedding date to ensure that I would have her too! I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Perfect Choice!Reviewed on 7/15/2013 Teal G
Whitney Lee was the perfect choice for my wedding photography! She did an amazing job with every photo shoot we had. Our engagement shoot was in August in Austin, and while my groom was not excited about the 7am start time Whitney made us so comfortable and the photo shoot was a blast. I had a bridal portrait shoot, then had it redone because I lost weight and my dress didn't fit! Whitney was happy to redo the shoot and the pictures turned out beautiful both times. The day of the wedding she was profession and so sweet, having to contend with my large loud family to get pictures done before the ceremony. All the pictures have turned out phenomenal! Since this is the one thing you look at forever, I wanted to make sure my pictures were great and Whitney far surpassed my expectations. I would definitely recommend her to all brides!
DisappointedReviewed on 4/16/2013 Cecilia A
I married my husband on October 20, 2012. When searching for a photographer I absolutely fell in love with Whitney Lee because of the beautiful diverse photographs she has on her website. There were pictures from a wedding in particular that was shot at the same venue I booked! I knew that I would definitely go with Whitney Lee. This may be odd to say but most brides will understand... When I met with Whitney there was something that didn’t click. Even though I loved Whitney’s portfolio I decided to meet with other photographers to see if there was someone who I felt would be a better fit for our wedding. After numerous interviews I decided to go ahead and book Whitney Lee’s services even though I was a bit apprehensive. I made this decision because I loved her pictures and the reviews were amazing. Booking Whitney’s services was one of the only regrets I had during my whole wedding experience. I rarely leave negative reviews but I decided that if I can spare just one person from making the same mistake I did then it would be worth it. First of all, the communication is atrocious. Before I signed the contract I received email responses without delay after that I had to send multiple emails on numerous occasions before I received a response back. Sometimes it would be days even more than a week before I received a response back. She always had an excuse for not responding back. Out of town, guests came in for ACL, etc. Besides the lack of communication I was not pleased with the picture variety. It was the same poses with different backgrounds. I thought a photographer with as much experience as Whitney would offer a variety of poses. I noticed this significantly with the engagement pictures as well as the bridal party pictures. The pictures were overall mediocre. Another issue we had was it took Whitney almost 4 months to send me our wedding pictures. Our wedding was on 10/20/2012 and I received a link to pictage on 2/12/2013. I would email to receive an update and after multiple attempts each time I would always receive an excuse for the pictures not being complete. I understand that circumstances that are out of our control do happen but honestly all I wanted was to be kept in the loop with the progress without having to send multiple emails to get an answer. If this lack of follow through would have been a onetime incident it would have been overlooked. Jordan her new assistant was wonderful. Once she came on board things went a lot smoother. Overall the integrity with Whitney Lee is very poor. She was kind enough to give me a refund of 250.00 that I requested in lieu of receiving a picture credit, which was appreciated. If I would have read one bad review I wouldn't have gone with Whitney. I hope this helps other brides that are apprehensive. A wedding is supposed to be a joyous occasion not what I experienced.
Fun and Honest!Reviewed on 12/28/2012 Megan C
Whitney is a breath of fresh air. We automatically clicked and I knew I wanted her capturing our wedding day. She truly cares about her clients and it shows through her product and correspondents. I highly recommend Whitney!
Erica Niz - Awesome to work withReviewed on 12/06/2012 Catherine P
Erica did a terrific job with our engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures. She went above and beyond what was expected of a photographer and she is such a pleasure to work with. She is even someone I would want to be friends with! We are still waiting to get all of our wedding pictures back, but what we have seen of the wedding pictures, plus our bridal and engagement pictures, she is an amazing photographer with a great eye!
Great group, great photosReviewed on 10/22/2012 Madison C
For our wedding, we knew that photography would be an investment. My husband is into photography and is picky on style and technique, so we had to find someone that was good enough to make him happy! We ended up finding out that an old friend-of-a-friend, Erica Nix, was one of the group's wedding photographers, and after meeting with her and talking about our vision, we knew we had found the right fit. Whitney Lee is not cheap, but we saved 10% for having our wedding on a Sunday. The package also included an extra day-of photographer, an engagement session, and a few other little perks. We considered taking out he engagement session to save a few hundred bucks, but our photog recommended keeping it if only to give us some practice posing and working with her. What great advice! And the engagement photos are wonderful to have. As a company, Whitney Lee also made us feel special by sending little thank you notes that made us feel really pleased with our decision. A great little customer appreciation thing! Overall, a great experience!
DisappointedReviewed on 10/14/2012 osato
Whitney Lee was not available for my wedding so she sent one of her assistants to the initial consulation meeting and I was so disappointed with her professionalism. She was highly inexperienced and could not answer the simpliest questions. Also, the only portfolio she could show me was of Whitney Lee,she could not show me any of her work. I left the meeting so disappointed and I did not hire her.
We're so happy with our wedding photos!Reviewed on 8/05/2012 Amber M
We chose Amanda Hagood from Whitney Lee to be our photographer. We are very happy that we did! The wedding pictures were great and we're looking forward to creating an album. Amanda is super-responsive to questions and very helpful at answering them. We'd highly recommend Amanda at Whitney Lee!
Phenomenal PicturesReviewed on 11/12/2011 Mikkayla G
We used Amanda from Whitney Lee and it was basically love from first meeting. After spending weeks and weeks of researching photographers online we decided to set up a meeting with Amanda. My husband actually ended up picking her out from the list of photographers that I was willing to use. She was a great value as she shot our engagements, bridals, 8 hours at our wedding (with a second shooter) all for less than $2500. She was very quick to respond to my emails. She managed to capture many details at our wedding that we were too busy to notice that day. Picture turnaround time was very reasonable!
They Rule!Reviewed on 11/08/2011 Mandy G
I love Erica at Whitney Lee photography!! She's down to earth, easy to work with and just alot of fun. On top of that, she takes amazing photos! I'm usually not very comfortable having my picture taken, but she made it all ok. I hope I have need for a photographer again in the future so I can work with her again!
