Almost three years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Anne-Marie. Though I was not seeking a photographer for an occasion, I immediately fell in love with Anne-Marie’s work – her talent and vision were remarkable and I found myself awaiting blog posts to view and experience more and more of her work. A year later when I became engaged, I knew I would do everything possible to work with her. Working with Anne-Marie on our engagement photos, through wedding planning, and on our wedding day was the most wonderful experience.
Words fail to describe how grateful my husband and I are to have had Anne-Marie as our photographer. Anne-Marie beautifully captured our engagement photos on film and our wedding photos in digital. Her soft, romantic, detailed images are breathtaking. Not only are the images beautiful, they capture the individuality, joy and happiness of the subjects. Our photos remained ‘us’, and that is truly a gift. Our family and friends rave about the photos.
Anne-Marie played a big part in making our vision a reality. Anne-Marie’s personality and warm, kind, engaging style put us at ease while being photographed - we so enjoyed all of our time spent with her. Anne-Marie was flexible, provided insightful advice and helped us shape the day. We are forever grateful to Anne-Marie for her input and advice regarding our wedding, for the joyful time spent together, and, of course, for the incredible photos.
My advice? Work with AMBphoto, do everything you can to work with AMBphoto. Without a doubt, you will enjoy the precious time spent with Anne-Marie on your wedding day and you will have photos that will allow you to relive the beauty and joy of that day for years to come.
First things first, I’ve never left or given a review for any service or product I’ve used. It’s not that I don’t find them useful...as I do truly find them useful but perhaps it’s because I’ve never really felt truly inclined to do so. I’d like to think of myself as a seasoned vet when it comes to planning and organizing any type of event, function, vacation, etc. So when it came to planning a wedding, I knew that I had a good foundation on where to start. What I didn’t know or expect was the difference it would make to the total experience to have chosen such fantastic vendors. And of course at the very top of this list is AMBphoto.
Anne-Marie was recommended to my husband and I by my mother in-law. A friend of hers from work had used AMB Photo the year before and had loved both her photos and her experience working with Anne-Marie herself. We contacted her instantly and it was very easy to set up a meeting.
My husband and I were nervous and weren’t particularly excited to be the center of attention for a full day of photos. When originally letting Anne-Marie know about our apprehension, she right away suggested that we get in front of the camera before the big day. I was hesitant at first as we weren’t originally set on getting engagement photos but she reassured us that it would be a great way to do a trial run for the day of and would help make us feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Our engagement session was an amazing experience and we were able to get to know Anne-Marie on a personal level which helped to make the process really comfortable, relaxed and effortless. The result was that the photos spoke for themselves...we loved them all! My husband and I attended 7 weddings the year we were married. While still having a great time at each, naturally we couldn’t help but compare our choice of vendors with others we had experienced that year. What was very evident was that you truly get what you pay for. If you want good service, a professional look, someone pleasant with guests, and of course stunning, natural, honest photos....you will not regret booking with AMBphoto.
It is not often that my words fail me, but today, I found myself at a loss. How do I simply "review" one of the most talented artists I have ever encountered? We were introduced to Anne-Marie during our friend's beautiful wedding, and within moments of visiting her website and blog, we were certain we had found our "someday" photographer. I initially contacted Anne-Marie without a date or venue in mind, and I cannot deny that we chose our wedding date solely based on her availability.
While Graham (my fiancé) found himself immediately in awe of Anne-Marie's unmistakable talent, he felt nervous at the prospect of an engagement session. He thought it might feel awkward or uncomfortable.
Well. You can imagine my surprise, upon the close of our session, when Graham could not stop talking about what an incredible time he had. And how at ease he felt all day!
Her comforting nature aside, Anne-Marie is both honorable and kind. Her ability to capture our genuine emotion during a regular afternoon astounded us both. She managed to capture the most "us" moments that could ever be caught in time.
And it shouldn't have surprised me! You find yourself one moment browsing her blog, the next completely lost in her work. And as you marvel at each captured moment, you can feel her sensitivity: her heart in what she does.
I will never know or understand how her photos emit such beautiful light. And although I struggle to find the words, this I know for sure: we are infinitely blessed to have found her.
If you are looking for your "forever" photographer - to capture the most special moments of your life - I urge you to consider Anne-Marie Bouchard.
