  • Deanna came highly recommended by a friend whose wedding photos I absolutely adored. I was much more confident choosing a wedding photographer based on photos of people I knew instead of relying on a “best of” portfolio. Deanna was very professional and went above and beyond to capture the best moments of the day and the emotion that went along with it. Deanna was able to put us both at ease, and managed to make my camera-shy husband smile and pose like I have never seen before! The engagement photo session was also quite valuable for us as it made my husband much less nervous about the wedding photos. There is enough to be nervous about on a wedding day, without having to worry about the photos! Knowing I could count on Deanna on the day of our wedding allowed me to relax and enjoy my wedding day to its fullest! ~Shannon & Matt


  • Finding a photographer that was both talented and easy to work with was of paramount importance when we began to plan our wedding. Deanna came highly recommended by our wedding coordinators, and from our very first meeting over coffee, I knew I wouldn’t have to look any further. Armed with a stunning portfolio and an easy, welcoming attitude, Deanna answered all my questions and took a genuine interest in uncovering exactly what we wanted from our photographs. In the days before the wedding, Deanna took time out of her own busy schedule to scout out our venues; she even came to our rehearsal to get a feel for our ceremony. On the big day, Deanna’s gentle, thoughtful presence was unobtrusive and calm – much needed on such a chaotic day! She encouraged us to be ourselves, laughed with us, and quietly snapped those precious candid moments that are so rarely captured on film. She also helped to guide us through the more posed family shots, allowing that component to go smoothly and efficiently. Even my photo-phobic husband felt completely at ease and never once said “are we done yet?” The end result was a photo session that ended up being one of the absolute highlights of the entire day. Actually, of the entire wedding experience! Thank you Deanna – we feel truly blessed that we found you. ~ Morgan & Andrew
