"AJ is hands down one of the funniest and most talented photographers we have ever worked with. From the moment the shoot started she was in control (in the best way). We never felt like we had to figure out what to do, she instructed and guided us. But she also kept the shoot very personal and unique to my husband and I. Not only did the photos/shots turn out incredible, her editing is top notch as well (as the editing really makes or breaks the photos). Will 10000% use her again if we have the chance and recommend her to everyone."

"Adrianna is AMAZING. I am so happy that we were able to have Adrianna as a part of our big day. First, she’s organized. AJ has you set up a day of timeline and questionnaire, she is on track of time and when things should be happening. She makes sure that things stay on schedule, but also allows extra time wherever it is needed. She doesn’t rush. Second, her photos are amazing. I was interested in Adrianna because of the style of picture she takes. To me it almost looks natural. I love all the greens she uses in photos. She did not disappoint with our wedding photos, I absolutely LOVE them!!! Her turn around time is so quick! I wasn’t expecting our wedding pictures back so soon!
Finally, she’s fun!!! Adrianna has that friendly demeanor that everyone loves. She’s the type of person that you just want to stay friends with for the rest of your life! Honestly, I am probably going to beg her to always be our family photographer!! Thank you so much Adrianna, for EVERYTHING!!"

"If you are looking for a wedding photographer that prays for you, gets to know you, and learns what you love, Adrianna is your girl. She worked with me throughout my engagement to understand me better and applied it to my wedding day! She was flexible, cheerful, and so professional. Adrianna gave us pictures that perfectly captured our wedding day without being distracting during the wedding and reception. Her editing is simple, elegant, and romantic while still looking natural. She was such a joy to work with and I can not say enough good things about her and her work!"

Adrianna is the best of the best!! Very easy to work with and so much fun! She is calm, stress free, encouraging and full of honest compliments for her clients. We felt confident with her work before, during and after our full wedding shoot. Thank you for absolutely everything, Adrianna!

"We had an excellent experience with Adrianna. Our wedding was outside and insanely hot and Adrianna stayed professional and made us look so much better than I ever thought our sweaty selves could have looked. Our only problem was deciding which of our 800+ pictures to hang up in our house! Would absolutely recommend and reasonable pricing!"

"Adrianna photographed our wedding on 9/16/17. As a photographer she takes the time to get to know her subjects and understand what they like. The night of our wedding she was everywhere! She got tons of pictures that I absolutely love and will hang on our wall for ages. She worked with me on making a schedule and I rested easy the entire day confident that she was there and taking all the pictures needed for the day. They turned out fabulous and she got them back to us very quickly!"
