love notes

"I wasn't the typical bride who had it all figured out while wedding planning. I only knew two things.. who I was marrying and who was taking the pictures :-) I fell in love with Brooke's work online before I was even engaged and then had the pleasure of meeting her at a bridal expo. I knew immediately she was who I wanted to capture my big day. She was incredibly supportive, accommodating, and made everyone feel so comfortable. Her ideas were fresh and the poses were perfect. The pictures surpassed any vision or dream I've ever had about my wedding day and I would hire Brooke again without a doubt. She was so great with following up with me leading up to the wedding, the day of, and even afterwards."

"Brooke is absolutely AMAZING! I first came across Brooke's work from a suggested vendor/marketing handout I received at a prospective venue my now husband and I were considering- I immediately fell in love with her photography style and editing techniques. A suggestion to all future brides... do an engagement shoot! My husband and I were initially a little weary about it- we weren't models used to being in front of the camera! Brooke made us feel super comfortable with the whole picture taking and posing process. She had a very fun, calming, and laid-back demeanor which made the shoot fly by. It was great getting to work with her during the engagement session so come our wedding day, we had an established relationship with Brooke and were familiar with the poses she suggested we do (Cris' favorite... the "Nuzzle" :) ). Brooke also sent out a Bridal Guide to all of her brides- it was VERY helpful for wedding day timeline planning and tips/tricks- I consulted it many times. Our wedding day photography went perfectly as well! Brooke sent us online galleries for both our engagement and wedding day shoots very quickly and even sent us a cute customized USB drive with our wedding pictures. The pictures are beautiful, I found myself favoriting waaaaay too many. I've recommended Brooke to all my friends who are engaged- she's a diamond (got to love the wedding puns)! Thanks a bunch, Brooke!

"Brooke was a true blessing to work with. Upon initial contact many months before our wedding, Brooke spoke with us via phone to get to know us and to understand what we were looking for in a photographer. We also got a sense of her style and personality which fit our vision for our engagement and wedding photos. Our engagement session a few months later felt so comfortable, and even fun! As our wedding date neared (July 9th), Brooke reviewed our questionnaire and schedule with us in detail. During the wedding, Brooke and her second shooter, Brittany, were incredibly attentive and engaged. Brooke's overall professionalism and commitment to her work are exceptional. We highly recommend her and her team!"

"BROOKE AND HER TEAM IS AMAZING!!!! She has photographed several of my friends weddings, one of which I was a bridesmaid for. Everytime she astonishes me with her photographs, each time more beautiful than the next. She is so fun and easy going but was able to handle my crazy bridal party and family. :) She made the most of our beautiful lake atmosphere and wedding day. I could not have asked for better photographer to capture our most memorable day! Her eye for romantic photos and best lighting really made our photos. I can't wait to get them printed!!! THANKS BROOKE!"
