Thank you!!! It is no small feeling when you receive appreciation from your clients. 🙂 I’ve worked on projects from simple to large, from products to people, from sunshine to rain. Here are a few reviews to get an idea of how things go when I photograph for you:
“Anne is a pleasure to work with! She’s incredibly professional, and very talented. She was one of a handful of photographers I asked to photograph an event for KUER and she provided some of our best and favorite photographs from the day. She works with minimal instructions and knows just how to approach the type of subject she’s working with – I look forward to working with her in the future.”
– David Childs, Membership Assistant at KUER 90.1
“Anne is amazing! I couldn’t imagine having a better photographer or better wedding photos. She is professional, very personable, intelligent, and was really fast at getting our photos back to us. Anne made sure to get to know us so the photos were our style. She made me feel like I was the most beautiful bride.”
– Jaimey Leigh Bates
“Anne was very, personable with everyone, making it fun. She’s down to earth and, is willing to respond to ideas you have. She had great ideas for poses for a cloudy stormy day. She was very punctual, and ready to go. I would use her again, and highly recommend her to everyone.”

“A highly skilled photographer and an overall awesome human being!
This was the 2nd marriage for both me and my now-husband. We knew we wanted to have a photographer, but honestly, we didn’t want to spend an exorbitant amount of money. On the advice of a friend who was a photographer but was unavailable to photograph our wedding, we found Anne through Thumbtack.
Our initial communication with Anne was a short phone call to determine her availability (which she was), the overall size and timing of the wedding, what we were hoping for, and scheduling a time so she could see the venue (our back deck overlooking a lake) and the reception area (a nearby restaurant).
Our initial meeting with Anne was very productive. She asked all the right questions, and even some that we didn’t consider. Her thoroughness, professionalism and knowledge of her art (photography is an art), was evident in our meeting. We showed her where we would have the ceremony, and we walked around to where we could take photos after the wedding (the lake behind our house). Then we drove to the restaurant where we would have the reception, and Anne sat with us and the General Manager of the restaurant to get a full idea of how the reception would flow. Anne took notes throughout this entire meeting.
It wasn’t required, but we offered Anne an opportunity to join our casual rehearsal the evening before the wedding, and she happily joined us. She took pictures during the rehearsal to test out her equipment, and to make sure she would be prepared for the framing of certain aspects of the ceremony. As the bride, I wasn’t attached to having photographs of getting prepared, or having pictures of my dress or shoes, etc. But Anne not only offered up those options, she took it upon herself to get to the wedding early and take pictures of all the preparations, anyway. I am SO GLAD she did!
When the day came, Anne was able to capture the ENTIRE day, from before the ceremony, through to the end at our reception. The pictures are AH-MAZING! The area where we had our ceremony had very challenging lighting because it was outside, but the roof on our deck was tinted, and the sun was spotty in many places depending on where you stood. Nonetheless, in every shot we received in our gallery, Anne managed to find the sweet spot in all the shots— clear images, beautiful color, wonderful translations to black & white.
It was a small wedding, 27 people total including Anne, plus me and my groom. She coached, cajoled, and encouraged everyone in the group shots to show their true personalities. As for the photos of me and my groom… WOW! The background of the lake and puffy clouds was spectacular, and the timing (early evening) was spot on. Anne captured it all— magical, spontaneous, heartfelt, funny, and just perfect! The same could be said of the reception— from our guests, to the toasts, to our connection with the restaurant staff, to the live music, the food and our two cakes. The whole day was absolutely and perfectly recorded with Anne’s pictures!
Even after the event was over and we waited for her to cull through the hundreds of pictures she took, Anne asked us if we wanted to see some pictures in advance. We wanted to be surprised, but I was also dying to see something, so she sent us one picture. That one picture floored me, and I knew we were in for a treat. In addition to the hundreds of photos included in our final gallery, Anne created a short video (less than two minutes) highlighting a handful of shots that, if one sees it, can get the gist of our day. It was such a bonus since I didn’t recall that was part of our agreement.
As a person, Anne is warm and friendly, genuine and thoughtful, creative and considerate. She is extremely easy to work with and talk to. Her communication skills and our interactions were superb— from answering emails and texts in a timely manner, to being punctual with scheduled phone calls and in-person appointments. If you read through this entire review, you MUST contact Anne yourself and see what she has to offer you. If you are prepared; have a vision of what you want for your day; can voice your ideas, concerns, and questions; then Anne can meet you where you are and deliver a spectacular record of photographs that you, your family and your friends can treasure for a lifetime!”

“Anne was flexible, professional and a lot of fun to work with! So glad she could shoot my very non-conventional fantasy wedding with style. Highly recommend this awesome lady.”
– Eleora Nelson
“Anne was our photographer for our wedding in August and she did an amazing job! She was willing to answer all our questions and made this “wedding chore” not feel like a chore but like a fun affair! One of the main reasons we chose Anne as our photographer was her personality; she made us feel more relaxed like this was one less thing to stress about. On our wedding day there were some clouds unfortunately but with the way the pictures came out you can’t tell! We loved how she was able to catch some of the smaller moments that were happening all around us that we may not have seen.”

“Anne is very professional and patient with my 6 month old! She did a wonderful job and I am very please with the pictures. Can’t wait to have her shoot his 9 month photos!”
