The Knot Best of Weddings 2017

We are so pleased and thankful to have been selected as a 2017 winner in The Knot Best of Weddings.  We just got our plaque, and we wanted to share it with you. You helped us win, and we wanted to say THANK YOU. You can view some of the very sweet reviews from our very own brides on The Knot. Thank you so much for your trust, your words, and for being yourself. We couldn’t have done this without Y-O-U.

“One of the greatest experiences EVER! Wanda and Mell are amazing. From the moment I walked in, nervous as anything, until receiving my final gift for my husband, they were fun, witty, hysterical, creative. They are professional and my album is phenomenal. Sarah, who did my hair and makeup knew just the look for me, a glammed up version of me. Once my shoot started, Wanda and Mell made me feel comfortable and walked me through how to pose. I couldn’t believe the pictures they showed me on the camera were really me. I was blown away. We laughed the whole time. When I came back to view my pictures a week later, I was overwhelmed. They made me feel and look sexy and beautiful. I would highly recommend booking with Wanda and Mell, they made everything perfect! My husband loves his gift!. Thanks Wanda and Mell for everything!”

One Image- Expression

Happy Sunday! We love how this Bella has a Mona Lisa kind of smile going on with a light in her eyes. The eyes are so key to an expression. It makes you wonder what was she thinking about.
