“Besides getting married, having Anna document our wedding was the highlight of the entire day! Her calming and compassionate presence throughout the day was such a gift, especially when emotions were running high. This is not something that Spencer and I had ever considered during the search for a wedding photographer, but as I look back, Anna’s good vibrations were vital to the immense success of the day. For that, she has our gratitude forever! My husband feels very out of place in front of the camera. This was one of his greatest anxieties as we were looking forward to the wedding day. Once we started shooting with Anna, I could sense all of Spencer’s nervous energy fall away; the way she subtly directs you is so comforting, which allows everything else in the photograph to unfold organically. This is how I know that she is a master!
As our memories fade, what we have left from our special day are the photos that Anna made for us. We are so happy that she chose to join us on this adventure because I really couldn’t picture looking back on anyone else’s perspective of our day than Anna’s. Every time I view our photos, I am consumed with a wave of nostalgia; not only because I would love to go back in time and revisit the day again, but because Anna’s artistry so effectively conveys the love, the emotion, and the fleeting nature a memory can have. I so admire Anna’s thoughtful approach and how much she weighs every decision she makes through her medium. I’m convinced that she is magical because of the way she sees the world, and the world she sees is infused with light, simplicity, and poetry.” – O+S
“Anna understood our values and the aesthetic we wanted to put forward and executed it in a way that exceeded even our best-case expectations. She has an ability to make you feel so calm and relaxed, allowing your relationship to be the focal point of her art.
No question was too frivolous leading up to the day. Anna offered sound advice on style, structure, organization, communication, and more. She pulled out each personality in the photos and made sure to take enough pictures to really capture the energy. She coordinated chaotic families with grace and poise. I felt like I could completely relax into each photo – no moment was interrupted by a picture being taken, but it seems every moment was captured. Being able to 100% hand over the reigns on the day of made our day so much less stressful!” – A+B
“Choosing to work with Anna was the best decision we made during the planning process – I cannot sing her praises enough. Anna is warm and kind–we felt like we were hanging out with an old friend, so it was easy to feel relaxed and comfortable during the shoot. Our families also gushed about just how nice she was, whether herding unruly flower girls or directing family portraits in hot weather–never intrusive or abrupt. She always made our guests feel welcome.
Anna is a consummate professional who goes above and beyond. Relying on her experience, judgment, and open communication made planning our wedding from out of town so much more manageable–we cannot recommend her enough.” -D+J
“When searching for a wedding photographer, I wanted to pick someone that was highly talented and also someone who when I looked at their previous work, I would’ve been pleased if those had been my photos. There’s always that fear, though, that you won’t end up liking your own photos as much as someone else’s. None of those fears played out with Anna. She made us feel natural and like ourselves during each of our shooting sessions (engagement and wedding), and was able to turn the normal people we are into pure magic!
Our favorite thing about working with Anna was that nothing felt posed. We never felt like we were at some strange modeling session – it was like hanging out with a friend. Anna is personable and laid back, which made it really easy for us to feel and look relaxed.
When I recommend Anna to others, I often talk about the high quality of her work. I initially picked Anna as our engagement and wedding photographer because I liked the softness and colors that come with her photography style. It was an added bonus that she uses film to photograph, which made our photos feel even more special. Not only was she incredibly easy to work with but she was thoughtful and made sure to capture every important detail from our day – while also allowing us to give input. You can tell she cares about her clients!” – A+G
