is a great photographer that we have used for our son's
, 3 month, 6 month, 1 year, 2 year, 2 sets of maternity pictures and christmas cards. She was extremely professional and prompt to all sessions and her prices can not be beat. We have used far more expensive photographers in the past with equal rsults and you even get rights to the pictures for free. We will never
from
as long as she is around and anticipate using her several times a year for many years to come. She is always very creative with her shoots and was always able to get my son to pay attention for great results. She was always prompt with any questions we had and her scheduling site is very easy to use.

came to our home to take family pictures as well as individual pictures of my 2 children (ages 2 and 4). She was willing to meet us at any location, but the convenience of having her come to our home and the fact that my kids do better in a familiar environment made it a great session. She interacted really well with the kids. The pictures turned out really great! She posted them on a password protected website for us to view, and will be mailing us a CD of the digital images. Great quality and good value. Will definitely use her again in the future.

My partner and I were more than a bit perplexed by the whole wedding planning process, as we never expected to be able to get married. I asked a friend of mine for a recommendation, and she said
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
had been the photographer at her and her husband's wedding several years before. We were nervous about the cost involved. When we met with
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
, she explained her unique way of pricing her services, essentially we just paid her for the time she was actually at the wedding (including the pre-ceremony photos she did for us). She'd then provide a set of prints to us and a CD of all the photos she took that day.
What I really liked about
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
is her what-you-see-is-what-you-get, no-BS demeanor. We first met at a Starbucks by our house. She has so much wedding experience (well, photographing weddings, I mean) that she was able to give us a lot of good advice about the planning and validated our choice of caterer and florist. She really put us at ease with all our wedding planning and not just the photography.
The day of the wedding, she arrived shortly after we got to the venue, about two hours early. She said she had done weddings at the
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
previously and knew the best locations to use for our photos before the service. She told us she did some research for the best photo positioning for same-s** couples. AND she brought a LOVE statute with her for us to hold while we stood in front of the full-size LOVE statute on the grounds of the
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
. I can't remember if we mentioned it to her before, but we purchased the LOVE statutes for table decorations and to give to our guests. So it was absolutely perfect to have them as part of our photos. In fact, I don't think we told her about the statues. She just seems to be very intuitive as far as knowing what wedding couples will want. And her efficiency was amazing getting all the photos done in under an hour (then we took family members aside to do their photos). I felt like she went above way beyond any expectations of her to make sure our day was perfect.
During the ceremony and reception, she was completely unobtrusive, but managed to capture some amazing moments! It wasn't until we got the photos back that we realized just how many memories she captured for us, ones that we would have never known about had she not been in the right place at the right time. Because of all her wedding experience, I never had to worry about her missing special moments, like the lighting of the Unity candle. It's worth mentioning the number of people from our wedding who came up to
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
to say hello, because
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
had done their family photos for years or done someone's wedding they knew. In fact, my sister-in-law said that she used
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
for her family and kid's photos growing up, and now her oldest daughter is using
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
to photograph her own family now.
In short,
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
is exactly the kind of wedding photographer (or any kind of wedding contractor) you want there on your special day. She is pleasant, calming, super prepared, organized and the consummate professional in every regard.

has taken photos of my children since my daughter was in the womb 6 years ago. She did maternity photos with both of my children, as well as baby's first year for each of them, and we typically get family photos done each year. She is nice, patient, professional and her prices can't be beat! Thanks again,

We found
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
after an extensive
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
for the perfect photgorapher, and after a review of her stunning portfolio and amazing Yelp reviews, hired her to be our official event photographer. We spend a lot of time and money on preparations for our annual event, and host a large number of high-end clientele (with amazing fantasy
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
outfits), so professionalism and attention to detail are paramount when documenting the festivities. Not only did
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
deliver what was promised, she went above and beyond with her post-production work and somehow managed to make the images she captured more beautiful than the event itself! Her work was far and away superior to some of the other pro photographers that had been hired by some of our other designers and performers. We will be using
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
for every one of our productions from here on out. Thank you!

I have paid far too much for expensive photography, only to be less-than-thrilled with the outcome. You will not have to worry about this with
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
. I have repeatedly been amazed with not only her photographic "eye" and creativity, but her genuine passion for this art. Now, let's get to the nitty gritty. My husband is terribly un-photogenic. He usually looks like a sad puppy in pictures and he sits for portraits only because he knows it matters to me. Any photographer who can get him to not just laugh, but look natural, capture his candid moments (his smile is one of my favorite things!) and get him to say, "I never knew photography could be so cool and fun!" after our styled session is a photographer to whom I will return. I have tested the waters with other photographers in the area and sought recommendations from friends of mine who visited others in the central/eastern NC region. Their photos either looked over-photoshopped or my friends told me how boring and discouraging their experiences were, especially when their photogs sat them down for proofing/pricing.
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
deserves more for her work- her prices are some of the most humble I've seen. She should be in the thousand dollar range for weddings and the several-hundreds for her engagement,
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
, styled sessions, etc. BUT SHE'S NOT. One of the best part of hiring her is when she hands you a disc with your favorite images on a cd, full, large-sized RAW (that's a file format, doesn't mean unedited) files wrapped like a little gift. Some of her portrait sessions even include print credits in the pricing.
Now let's talk about the sessions themselves. From the time I first contacted her, I was taken by the hand and whisked into a wonderland of beautiful scenery. I remember sending her an email, something along the lines of, "I have an idea of outdoor photography but don't know where to go...we kinda like this, and this, and I just want it to be romantic." Done. No questions asked. She knew just the place, and we met at a spot that wasn't a hotspot for every basic photog in the area. It was a cottonfield at sunset. Our pictures look like their straight out of pinterest or some award-winning magazine. I have one framed in my office at work and you just don't know how many people walk in and compliment it when they see it.
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
doesn't just capture pics, she captures MOMENTS and uses the essence of LIGHT. I mean "light" in more than one way...the light of the sunset, the light our of emotions as my husband and I stood, whispering sweet-nothings in a cottonfield. She brings props, ideas, skill and knows how to serve her clients... a skill that many photographers lack. I've encountered several who seemingly forgot that half their job is interacting with the clients.
Her work speaks for itself. Just check out her page and you'll see what I mean.
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
is down to earth, makes you not just feel comfortable, but relaxed and natural in whatever element you want. Her editing time is prompt and the outcome is 100% happiness on both ends. don't use the photog on Facebook who's a shameless promoter of their less-than-adequate iPhone photography...no matter how many "magnetic lenses" they have. Contact a professional, a photographer who is your friend and invests her heart into what she does, to create art that you'll keep for a lifetime.

It was the day after Thanksgiving and the only day our out of town children and grandchildren would be together. Desmund agreed to come to our house to do the shoot. He came out on a previous day to get an idea of where the best spot might be as we don't have a particularly large indoor space.
He tried hard to get all of us - including 1 two year old to look good at the same time. He took many pictures but there were surprisingly few that showed us all as good looking as we might be with eyes open and no funny expressions our our faces.
.Desmund was on time and easy to work with. We got our shots

I needed to find a good photographer very last minute for a charity event. Our regular photographer was called out of town and could not make it. I contacted
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
in Coral Gables in hopes that by some miracle they might be available. I was in luck - they could accomodate my short notice request!! My initial contact was with
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
Jr. and he couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. He made arrangements for his father,
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
Sr. (The photographer) to make it to my event.
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
Sr. arrived at the event right on time, was courteous, professional and took great pictures. I will definitely be using
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
for our future events!!

did a fantastic job photographing our family of five. We knew our one-year-old would be a challenge, but
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
came prepared with hand puppets, face masks, and toys. She spent an hour with us outside our home and captured several wonderful moments. She has been a pleasure to work with from initial contact to final delivery of the digital pictures. I highly recommend her.

Absolutely the most incredible experience! We cannot begin to express our appreciation for all
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
photography has done towards making our wedding day so very special. The photographs are beyond or expectations and are so beautiful, they do look like magazine advertisements!
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
is truly amazing at what she does and blessed she was our photographer. Her organization and choreography was true art in staging our wedding album to tell a story. I am so thankful she convinced me to photograph the "Getting Ready", now I have beautiful moments of my mom and I. Also, grateful for the way she orchestrated "The First Look", it captured our emotions in photographs that we will have forever, truely priceless! We had so much fun with
Indianola Photographers Provider Name Locked
as she photographed our moments with such excitement and can still hear her say, "It's just beautiful wait until you see these." There are many expressions between us and also our parents expressions that were photographed that say a thousand words, which is so beautiful to us. Amazing quality! Thank you so very much for making our wedding day a dream come true with photographs to share, reflect, and treasure for a lifetime!
