Fine art photography| Lowes Island VA | Family photography photographer | Oh, How We Love A Good Review!

This family photography photographer near Lowes Island VA specializes in fine art photography.

This one’s from Katherine and Yukwan . . .

“I have always been shy and felt very uneasy in front of the camera and I am always the first one to flee if some over-enthusiastic friends point their cameras in my general direction. But like all other brides out there, I would love to have professional photographers in my wedding who can capture all the emotions and all the important people in my life on my big day and I have also been secretly drooling over other people’s pretty wedding pictures. After interviewing 8+ photographers and plenty of budgeting exercises, I hired Mindy & Joriana. To be honest, professional wedding photography can be pricey but it’s really worth it. Mindy & Joriana are down-to-earth, very helpful, very genuine and extremely professional and responsive in their communications. Their package includes an engagement session which we did at our undergrad college (where we first met). I was really nervous beforehand but the two quickly eased my worries and before we knew it, my hubby and I were enjoying a nice date out (and we got tons of pretty pictures out of it).

Mindy was also very helpful when it comes to wedding planning. I did not have a wedding planner and was pretty much clueless when it came to wedding planning. But Mindy gave me more than enough information (a big planner) right after I hired them as our photographers. Throughout the planning process, I consulted with Mindy whenever I had questions or whenever I felt stuck or felt stressed out, and she has gone over and beyond to help me numerous times, especially when it comes to nailing down the final schedule & details of the big day.

When it comes to my big day, they went over everything in great details beforehand and they scouted my wedding site to get familiarized with the place and to come up with cool ideas for shooting. I had my dream wedding, with the perfect man and perfect people in my ceremony and reception, and Mindy & joriana’s photojournalistic approach and skills allow them to capture the mood and emotions of the day accurately. Everytime I look at my wedding pictures, I find myself going through all the emotions of my big day again and I simply can’t help crying some happy tears — really, all the nice things I could say about Mindy & Joriana can fill up pages. I just want to say that I feel really blessed to have them there on my big day.

The last thing I wanted to mention is that even though Joriana is very young, her photography skill is top-notched and she has some of the coolest ideas and is responsible for some of my favorite images. She is not only a great photographer but with time, I can see her evolving into a true artist =)”

To Katherine and Yukwan, thank you so much for your wonderful review! We truly loved photographing you two on one of the most important days of your lives. We were so happy to provide you with images that make you feel those emotions all over again. And we know that as time goes on, each year, you will only draw closer, and your love will continue to blossom.

“My name is Sarah. I am a new photographer and new to VA. I have been searching through local photographers websites and feel the need to compliment you. After watching your wedding slideshow, I had tears streaming down my face. Your photographs were so moving, so intimate, so beautifully composed that I was completely drawn into complete stranger’s stories.

My hope is that someday, my photos will produce that same reaction in others. I know that this may seem like an unusual email but I was truly impressed with your art. It is what I would like to learn how to create. Thank you!”
