HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
Being my first blog of the year is KIND of a big deal, and I couldn’t think of a better idea than making my first post of the year my “year in reviews” post! See what I did there?! Well you won’t yet, but I wanted to share what a few of my brides had to say about working with me this year.
I said it time and time again over last year, but I get to work with SO many amazing clients, and 2017 will be a hard one to beat!! I had some amazing couples, and I was honored they chose me as the one to get to document the beginning of their stories. So let’s jump right in!!
My very first wedding of 2017 was these two, and it was a DREAM. Not only did my motel have llamas that you could feed (yes, you read that right), but I had SO much fun with these guys and their friends! Their families were more than welcoming, and I felt like I was a part of the group the entire weekend.
“Misty is an amazing photographer! We had the honor of having her photograph our wedding this past January. Her work is amazing and beautiful and she was able to capture our perfect day and all of our wonderful memories. We are constantly complimented on her work and love having it around to show off. We are looking forward to using her talent for all our special occasions. Which we will use her every time! I would recommend her to anyone for any occasion!”
Sean and KP’s wedding was perfect! They tied in both American and Thai ceremony traditions, and it was my first time getting to be a part of a Thai water ceremony!
“We were very happy and extremely pleased to have booked with Misty for our engagement and wedding day. She made both my husband and I feel at ease and relaxed during the pictures. Our pictures turned out amazing! She is very professional, organized, and detail oriented. She worked extremely well with our wedding planner and had helped make our wedding day turn out smoothly. She was everything that we looked for in photographer and more. Thank you for everything Misty”
Jorden and Jeanette are some of the sweetest people I’ve gotten to meet, and their wedding day was the perfect way to seal the deal!
“If you need a photographer, Misty is your girl! You will not regret hiring her! She goes above and beyond. Misty made us feel so special throughout our engagement! She is very easy to work with, very personable, and very helpful! She helped develop a timeline for our wedding, and I can’t even describe how stress-relieving that was for us! You cannot go wrong in hiring Misty, she is amazing!”
Adam and Jessica got married on my birthday!!! And I couldn’t think of a better way i’d rather spend my birthday! I loved being a part of their wedding!
“Absolutely loved Misty and all of the photos! She worked so hard for us and made us so comfortable! Couldn’t have asked for anyone better and our photos are amazing! Thank you Misty!”
I had so much fun with Dana and Terri on their wedding day. Terri was the kindest bride (the day was SOOO hot, and she made sure to kept checking on ME), and they combined their families seamlessly! It was beautiful!
“What can I say about Mrs. Misty…she is an absolutely dream! Being that my husband is a professional photographer himself, we were rather picky on who would be taking our pictures. Misty was the ticket. She answered my inquiry within 30 minutes of sending the request, she stayed on top of communication and literally EVERYTHING from the time we engaged in her services, through our engagement photos (and I had a gob of sick kids) all the way through our wedding. Misty went above and beyond in everything she did for us. Like I mentioned above, our engagement picture location had to change due to the fact that all three of my little ones were sick. She came to US! We made it work but she never complained for one second. My husband hates getting his picture taken and Misty found a way to engage with him to make him smile and enjoy the process. I highly encourage anyone to go through the engagement picture process with Misty, it makes the wedding day so much better. It’s like she’s family. She knew our children, our parents and best friends and treated them like they too were her family. The wedding day was HOT…I mean SO HOT!! 106 I think… she never complained, and followed me around doing everything she could do to make ME happy. Not something I am used to, it’s usually the other way around. In closing, I’m so grateful for Misty, her time, her energy and the genuine love she feels for those she works with. I can honestly say she is my friend now, and what a beautiful friend she is. Thank you lovely – you are a gift and simply AH-MAZ-ING!”
I knew from the first time I facetimed with Olivia we would get along great, but I didn’t realize HOW great. I got to be a part of two weddings with this sweet girl, hers and her best friend, Kendall’s, and I loved working with them throughout the year!!! Seriously, SO fun.
“We said it over and over throughout our time with her: Misty is MAGIC! Not only is she incredibly kind, warm, and comforting, she makes every photo look magazine ready. She bends over backwards to make sure everything is perfect, you feel comfortable, and you get just what you want. The only hard part about working with her is deciding which photos to print and hang, BECAUSE I LOVE THEM ALL.”
I LOVE me some Pine River Ranch Weddings, but you add two people like Matt and Kelsey, and all their family, and you’ve got yourself a wedding day that is hard to beat. These two were so excited to be married, and were troopers, even getting eaten alive by mosquitoes during their sunset photos. 😛 I also knew it was going to be a great day when Kelsey’s mom was just as excited to see/meet me, as I was to be there! She left the sweetest review as well.
“From the very beginning, working with Misty was amazing! She wanted to get to know us right away so we had a Skype session to make sure it was a good fit. It went great, and she was super easy to talk with and answered all of our questions. Looking at her gallery, I was amazed and so was everyone I showed. Her prices are extremely fair and all along the journey she sent us cute little packages that made everything that much more special. The day of the wedding she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, and was very organized making sure we got all of the shots we asked for. We’re so happy we came across her website and chose to work with her. Also, the quality of the photo books is amazing, and she’s very quick with turnaround time!! You rock, Misty!” – Kelsey
“I can’t say enough great things about Misty! I knew she was going to be great once I saw the engagement shots but fast forward to the wedding….WOW!! She is very talented, quick and professional. Everyone felt very natural with her around and you can sure tell from the finished product. It was great having Misty and her assistant at our daughter’s wedding! They both did a fantastic job and have captured some beautiful memories of the day that will last a lifetime!” -Kim, Kelsey’s mom
Josh and Kendra’s wedding day was B-E-A-U-tiful! Everything came together so well, and Josh’s reaction to seeing Kendra for the first time as his future bride made EVERYONE melt. I loved watching these two become husband and wife, and I’m excited for their future adventures!
“I am a little late but I could not thank this woman enough for capturing the most beautiful pictures on our special day! We will cherish those pictures for the rest of our lives. She was amazing on our wedding day and made everything go so smoothly. The months leading up to our wedding Misty brought things to my attention that I hadn’t even thought of! She was so incredibly helpful and one of the nicest people I have ever met! Oh did I mention she even sent us an adorable gift box?! I highly recommend Misty! You won’t regret it!”
What can I say about these two that I haven’t already. Whitney is just an amazing person to be around, and Chris may be quiet, but don’t let that fool you!! 🙂 I love these two!!
“Where do I even start!? Misty is seriously the most amazing photographer any one could ask for!! We all know taking pictures can be sort of awkward, but she makes you feel extremely comfortable and makes it so much fun!! She was great to work with through the whole wedding process. I seriously couldn’t be happier with our photos and the way everything turned out!! We love you Misty and thank you for everything!!! You truly are an amazing person!!”
Like I mentioned before, I got to spend two weddings with Kendall, and Olivia, and the other Nora girls from Gonzaga!!! I just love them.
“From her fabulous personality, to her much needed organization skills, Misty is exactly who we needed for our wedding! My husband and I knew from the minute we saw her galleries that we wanted to work with her, then became 100% sure we needed her after meeting for the first time! She made us comfortable and allowed us to have fun throughout our engagement knowing that she would take care of things on her end. She exceeded every expectation, and we now have absolutely gorgeous pictures of our wedding to share with family and friends forever! Misty is so much more than a photographer, she is a wedding guru! Can’t thank you enough Misty!!!”
Billy works for Harley, Mali is literally an angel. How could I not love these two!?!?!
“Misty is the most phenomenal wedding photographer we could have ever teamed up with. We could not be happier with her work! Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer, she is a wonderful human being and my husband and I feel like we found not just a wedding photographer, but a friend! We had an engagement session with her about a year before the wedding and she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera (something neither of us could do). She took the time to get to know us and our story and made us laugh capturing real emotions and lifelong memories from our wedding day. Both her candid shots and formal portraits are extremely well done. Bonus: We had access to our photos so quickly! It was amazing! Misty comes highly recommended from us.”
