"Ara was amazing. She did both the engagement and wedding photos for my daughter and new daughter-in-law. Ara's ability to have the surroundings compliment the brides is very obvious. She just has a photographer's eye for what will make a great picture. She caught many beautiful, tiny, private moments that as the mother of one of the brides I did not have time to see for myself. She took several group shots, dealt well with the numerous personalities, helped us figure out how to pin corsages and boutonnieres (this was totally my first rodeo!), and in general kept us on track. She had anything we needed with her. Who knew that the photographer would be more organized than the wedding coordinator when it came to finding scissors, fabric tape, pins, etc. We seriously could not have survived the day without Ara's calm demeanor and amazing sense of humor. I absolutely cannot wait to see the pictures the girls choose. "

"Ara, we love you to death. I can't be more happy with the photos from this session. Your beautiful talent and work have brought me so much peace throughout the course of my marriage and with the new lifestyle (or lack thereof, lol) that comes from becoming a parent. Since the passing of my father over 4 months ago, things haven't quite been the same and not in a good way, for me personally. These photos made me genuinely smile from ear to ear. Then made me think of my dad and wish he could be here to enjoy the pure love that is my children. This time, and I haven't had very many, I wasn't sad about missing him. I now know my dad was there that day and was smiling just as much as I did upon receiving these photos. Once again, and this time when I need it most, your art has given me much peace. We love you and are so happy that you are a part of Serena and SJ's lives. I have no doubt, that your special work will bring much peace to them in the future, as it has for me."

"Thank you so much, these are AMAZING, just beautiful.  We finally got to look through them all last night and they brought tears to my eyes re-living it all.  Everyone always says the day is a blur and it definitely was, but I am so glad that we have such beautiful memories captured from the day."
