“The Epitome of a Luxury Experience!”

April and Mike were the absolute BEST choice as our wedding photographers for so many reasons. First off, their work is incredible, as they provide a glamorous editorial feel to their photos, telling a story of your big day; capturing all the little details to the big moments!

From the beautiful welcome gift box to the intimate pre wedding meeting for dinner and drinks, this truly was a LUXURY experience. They are prompt and timely, professional, kind and friendly, and amazing at what they do. April even assisted in securing my veil prior to me walking down the aisle and Mike channeled his inner seamstress when by bustle ripped! We were so fortunate that they were our photographers for our wedding day and were happy they were able to share in our experience as well. It was like having another set of friends at our wedding with us!

“Our Easiest Decision throughout our Planning Journey!”

April and Mike were the first vendors we booked and they have been incredible to work with since day one. They truly make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and are able to capture the in between moments with your spouse!

I wouldn’t want anyone else there for these big moments! If you are on the fence, just talk to them and you’ll walk away knowing you are about to make the right decision by booking them. All of our wedding photos are perfect and show the love of that day! None of our photos feel scripted or forced, but just like us. They are the easiest yes you’ll make in this planning process!!

“Started as just our  photographers and ended as our friends!”

I can not recommend April and Mike enough!! From the moment I saw their portfolio, I knew I needed to have them for my own wedding. Since the day I reached out them, they've done nothing but exceeded all of my expectations. They make a special effort to really get to know us as a couple which made all of our photos even more personal. April went above and beyond during my entire wedding planning process to help with timelines, answer any questions I have and even provide outfit recommendations for our various shoots. The amount of compliments I've gotten on my engagement and wedding photos are unreal!

“Absolute Masters at their craft!”

Honestly, where do we even begin? We would recommend April to anyone, anywhere, anytime. To be transparent, we fell in love with her work before we even had our initial consultation. April is a true artist, extremely detail-oriented, and has mastered her craft. Not only did we have an amazing photographer, but also ended up with a lifetime friend! April is so sweet, kind, and loving. We could not have pictured having anyone else to capture our love forever.

“April & Mike were the best possible choice for our wedding.”

April & Mike made everything easier. They are so truly talented and invested in what they do, and it shows in all of their work. Not only that but they genuinely care about their couples, and making their big day incredible. Even on our wedding the day, they did so much for us. They have become dear friends of ours beyond photography.
