Inquire About Your Special Day

shelby + andrew

"I would absolutely recommend Summer! She was there from start to finish and by the end of the night I felt like we had been friends for years. It goes without saying her photos are a work of art and her talent is evident in her dreamy captures. Plus her photo gallery turn around times are unheard of in the wedding industry. We love Summer and wish she could be our photographer every weekend to capture all of life’s fun and exciting moments."

"I am still in awe of what Summer has done for us! Summer always responded quickly to any questions I had. She offered 3 different packages, or videography upon my first request. We got engagement pictures back the next day! And sneak peak wedding pictures back the week after wedding! Summer created an itinerary for the wedding, and made a list of all family needing to be photographed at wedding. On the wedding day Summer loosened any nerves I had about the big day."

"Summer was so fun and easy to work with and our pictures have always been nothing short of amazing + dreamy! Summer made sure every single moment was captured and she made sure our wedding day was so peaceful and fun, as we went around the venue sneaking in every special moment. I’m so happy to have engagement photos + wedding photos that we can cherish for a lifetime and that will look incredible on a future gallery wall!"

Summer was tremendous in helping us determine a great location for the photo shoot. She was extremely flexible with the timing and was able to work with our busy schedules. I can be awkward when trying to pose (of course I’m speaking for myself), but luckily Summer was there to help create a more fun and relaxed environment that allowed us to be more ourselves. She offered several different ideas when it came to our shoot and even played music in the background to make it that much more enjoyable! We did everything from static photos to dynamics and not to mention…a few acrobatic feats with lifts and twirls (at least that’s how I saw it). There wasn’t a dull moment with Summer and we couldn’t have been any happier! Our gallery that was sent to us was absolutely breathtaking. Summer truly captured what we envisioned our day to be and the love Daniella and I have for each other. We are happy to say Summer will be taking our photos during our wedding day and I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking for the perfect photographer for their special day. Thank you again Summer and we look forward to seeing you once again on our wedding day!

"Summer captured my wedding day and she was sweet, professional, on time and made us feel so special! Her picture quality is amazing and also got us our sneak peak so fast! There is not one bad thing I have to say about summer! We will be using her for the years to come! She’s so talented!"

"Summer is the most AMAZING photographer. She shot my engagement photos as well as wedding photos. Her photography is straight from a dream. Candid, light and airy, fun, and unique. She gets them back to you super dang quick on top of it all. She’s not only good at what she does but she’s good at having fun with it. My wedding party adored her. She made sure my dress was looking great and that we got to everything on time. I felt like I left my wedding with a new friend and some BOMB photos. Would recommend her to literally anyone."

"She’s not only good at what she does but she’s good at having fun with it"
