Review: April is Fantastic!!

  • How can I choose just one...they were all fantastic! April captured the true essence of our day from the tenderness of our wedding vows to the boogie on the dance floor. We also received every image in black & white so the possibilities were endless!
  • April and her partner were very unobtrusive. We didn't want the traditional posed session, but had to have some for the family and she made it run smoothly. She was great at orchestrating the shots and communicating with the DJ to keep the party rolling. She has a keen eye for capturing candids and even caught the sun peeking through the trees at just the right moment as my husband and I were dancing; it created the most beautiful picture!
  • We had a simple package & it was just right. Two photographers for 6 hours on our wedding day. April provided us with a DVD of all our pictures...color and black & white. The photography session included some print credits so we applied those to a wedding album. I couldn't be happier with the results! The album is creative, beautiful and very professional. (Not to mention very affordable too!)
  • April is a very friendly, likable person to begin with so her very nature puts you at ease. We had several meetings ahead of time so that everything was laid out and we both knew what to expect. She has good communication and is prepared so that makes the day just right. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer that is easy to work with.

Review: Great Second Wedding Photos!

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? The candid photos of my husband and I looking at each other. We also loved the pictures outside in the wind and rain with the umbreallas, and the entire high school basketball team from Marin County.
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? April allowed us to be ourselves but put us in settings that were trendy and picturesque. We have a hard time being creative so it was great to be posed sometimes. We like the use of her angles and props!
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Due to our poor judgement, we never received our original wedding pictures from our original wedding photographer, so we had to "retake" our wedding photos. April was reccommended by our videographer. Due to our time constraints ( I sold my dresses on ebay) we needed our pictures taken ASAP. April was able to shoot us the weekend after we called her. She was very accomodating and professional. She researched the places that we wanted to shoot to ensure she was prepared and that we could actually take pictures in certain locations. We only expected to meet with April but we had two addtional photographers to assist her.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? April was very laid back, not too overbearing and pushy. It was hard to take a natural picture when it is December, raining and cold outside, and not your actual wedding date. We felt that April was very creative given her circumstances and we liked the pictures very much. We would recommend her to anyone for their wedding as she is very reliable!

Review: Couldn't have picked anyone better than April Wise

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? I loved the photos of the wedding ceremony and the moments following our ceremony. Her staff captured all of the moments you are too distracted to take note of during your wedding so you can look back and really reflect on how lovely your wedding day truly was.
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? April was amazing! She even helped me get ready for my ceremony when I asked her to! Our wedding chapel was EXTREMELY small and her staff made a specific plan on how they would get the best photos of me walking down the aisle without them actually being in the way. I was so impressed with the shots they set up and I couldn't have asked for anyone better!
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We received a full day of photography (from 3:30 pm-11 pm), 200 dollars worth of photos, and a cd with all the photos they took during our wedding in both color and black and white.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? April really wanted to please us and still provide artistic shots that we were looking for. She made sure to get the specific photos we asked for, but she also went for the more "journalistic" style that I was looking for. She offers numerous varieties of photography styles so everyone can enjoy the great quality of work she does.
