My wife and I booked Van to do our engagement + wedding photography. Van was friendly, she communicated well and was flexible around our schedules. Most importantly, her photos were amazing! We will treasure them forever and are extremely happy we decided to go with Van!
Cheers to Van! She did an absolutely superb job capturing our intimate wedding ceremony. Her communication before, during and after the event was faultless. Van added her personal flair to our photos, which we love.I’d recommend Van in a heartbeat, not only is she a fantastic photographer, she also added the extra thoughtful touches that so many photographers miss.
We enjoyed the fact that Van listened and tried to incorporate things she quickly learned about us into the next few photos. It truly helped capture photos that reflected the real us, versus a posed, rehearsed photo. We liked that Van checked with us what we wanted, took a peek at images that we liked from inspirational boards and reminded us of them when she found the perfect location for it. Van and her associate were flexible, honest and willing to try new things.We look through the photos and find something new every time that makes us laugh, kiss or smile at each other. She was sly about her photos, no one knew she were bouncing around the farm taking them, so when we got our online album we were so shocked at how much she captured throughout the day! It has been difficult to decide which ones to get blown up and put on our walls because there are so many favorites. We thank you again for everything!!!!
I loved watching Van think about her next move, eyeing the scenery to survey the most picturesque spot for the photo to be staged. I could see her mind just scanning and envisioning, and it’s exciting for me. I love that she also took shots where there was movement. How Van captured the quirky, candid “outtakes” and the posed, graceful still shots. It’s such a mixed bag but yet all in her same vision and take on things, which is how I ended up framing a 16x20 of the goofy family photo instead of the traditional one. Van caught us being comfortable and silly in a moment between posing. I think her biggest asset is making everyone feel comfortable being themselves, which creates true photography of natural people.Only hire Van if you want pictures that show how heartfelt every snap of the camera was and how her true passion, love, and joy for her work is exemplified in every single shot.
