Ok. Hire this lady RFN (Right F****** Now). My jaw has hit the floor so many times after getting photos back from her, it doesn't even close right anymore. Simone did our engagement shoot and our wedding and I have endless compliments for this woman. She is personable and fun and makes you feel so comfortable. Her shooting style is unmatched, except maybe by her editing style which is simple and beautiful. She is incredibly organized and great at running the wedding day. She can really rally a wedding party together which is KEY for a successful wedding photo experience. She is patient and kind and just a BLAST to be with. Hire her and let's make her famous!

Simone did our engagement session and was the primary photographer at our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Not only is she the epitome of professional, we chose her because she gave off an energy that made the photos seem less forced and more natural. Simone's style is a mix of candid and posed which worked well for our wedding where you want "the moment" captured and need to nail the family photos and, boy, did she ever. She worked us through the nerves, the inclement weather, the questionable party-goer decisions, and was so patient through it all. Simone just made everything okay, which meant we were okay and able to enjoy our day that much more. As reference, I'd say on a scale from 1 - 5 (with 5 being most Type A), we're solid 4's, and have the utmost trust in her ability. I would 100% hire Simone again and would feel most confident in that choice.

Simone was a sensational photographer for our wedding. She met us with a calm and open energy and listened to what we were looking for at our walkthrough. She was exactly on time for the day and rolled with the chaotic flow of the wedding like a true champ. She made friends with our relatives, joked and laughed our way through the group photos. I appreciated when she gave us a bit of a nudge about some photos we would regret not taking. A few times she pulled us aside to take photos on the water at sunset, and in the moonlight- they are so cute! Full send recommend!!

We feel like we hit the jackpot finding Simone as our wedding photographer. She was able to capture all the moments of our day, beautifully. From the classics to the creatives, she provided us artistic keepsakes forever. Not only do we love the finished products, we adored our time with her. She’s fun, flexible, efficient and kind. We were able to enjoy our day and trust that she’d capture the magic- and she sure did! Simone is one of a kind. I’m forever grateful for her!

I'd 10 out of 10 recommend Simone. My wedding was pretty non-traditional and Simone quickly adapted to the changes in language and events that my partner and I wanted to incorporate. And like most family events, there was plenty of family drama that Simone handled seamlessly - she was able to accommodate what getting multiple shots with different configurations of family so there was a photo that could make each family member happy. Simone is also great with kids and was able to get ALL of the little ones actually looking at the camera which was honestly shocking to me! I was worried about feeling judged by my photographer for some aspects of my life that are not what most people would expect, but I did not for one second feel judged by Simone. She made me feel at ease and cared for during the event, and in the photo editing process. Simone got us some "sneak peaks" quickly and my partner and I pretty much gasped over every single one! The rest of the photos came a few weeks later and they are wonderful. Hire Simone! You won't regret it.
