Laken is such a sweetheart! She is incredibly polite and talented. We LOVE our wedding video. Definitely would recommend her to anyone interested in videography for their wedding.

Laken did an awesome job on our wedding day. Showed up early, listened to the requests we wanted and was professional. Her and her husband are lovely people to work with!

Laken was phenomenal! All of our pictures are breathtaking. They are better than I ever hoped for. Laken was with us the entire day and captured all the small details that I didn’t even think about. She worked wonderfully with all the members of the wedding party and was very patient making sure the shots were perfect. She also did our engagement pictures and took us to a beautiful barn south of Quincy that I didn’t even know existed. I would highly recommend her for capturing any important moments in your life!

I love her editing style and the fact that you're not getting the same pictures as everyone else on their wedding day. She is one of the nicest people and so relaxed which made it so easy to work with her. We were tight on time on wedding day because of travel but she made the best of the schedule we had given her and still got amazing shots for us...When I did get the pictures I was blown away. It was SO worth the wait. She knows how much family means to me and got so many special shots. I was speechless and cant' thank her enough for the photos she has given us. One of the most important vendors of the day for me was the photography and I am so happy with what I have to show to everyone for many many years to come.

Thank you, Laken. Thank you!

Laken did such an amazing job capturing our engagement and our special day! Her quality of work and attention to detail is hard to find for such a great price! We will definitely use her in the future and recommend her to family and friends!

Laken took our engagement and our wedding photos. She is the kind of person who can make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Her sweet and easy going personality make the whole experience that much better. She definitely knows what she's doing and goes above and beyond. She completely surprised me on my wedding day when she showed up earlier than scheduled because she wanted to get the extra photos of my bridesmaids and I getting ready at the hair salon. I was blown away by her work ethic and how she really puts her clients first. Her photos turn out amazing...She is an incredible photographer and I would recommend her to any bride-to-be. A special thanks to Laken for capturing my wedding day so beautifully!

MVP provided the best photography experience I've ever had. The final editing was much higher quality than most photographers at the same price point.

Laken was our videographer for our wedding. She was very helpful throughout the entire day. Not only is she amazing but she captured every important and sentimental moment. She is amazing to work with and she’ll make sure that she captures every detail. We will cherish this video for the rest of our lives. I loved every second of our video. I highly recommend her!!!

We loved working with Laken throughout the entire process. Before the wedding, we met in person to discuss my expectations and her process. On the wedding day itself, she was SO wonderful, positive, and helpful. She rolled with all requests from family members wanting photos with us and we went to the Dogwood Festival to get some fun carnival pics. She kept us updated on the progress of our photos throughout the editing process. I LOVE our photos and couldn't wait to share them. Her style captured our big day PERFECTLY :)
