STANLEY HOTEL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | ASHLEY & CHRIS REVIEW

"We absolutely loved working with Lisa! Since the photographs of our wedding were to be the only medium for memorializing the big day, we found it difficult trusting someone to capture all of our special moments. We fell in love with Lisa’s photography after perusing her website, and as soon as we met with her, knew she was the one. Her warm and friendly personality instantly made us feel at ease, and we were completely smitten with her passion for…

Fuji 400H with a Mamiya 645 Afd (medium format) Shooting with a certain type of film stock is a conscious choice that the photographer makes. How do I want the colors to look?
