In our search for a wedding photographer we reviewed several portfolios, most consisted only of engagement and wedding portraits. It was Barbara's art portfolio that really struck us and left us in awe. We knew we wanted photos involving graffiti walls in an industrial area. During our initial meeting via Skype Barbara came off as a personable and jovial spirit. After a discussion about what we wanted to focus on for the photoshoot, we knew we had found the right photographer. Our wedding was filled with love and happiness. The ceremony was in an unusual venue and our wedding guests were from all walks of life. Barbara managed to capture all of the glittery-ness and fuzzy, warm feelings. She has an eye for all things romantic and fantastical (or whimsical). We were having so much fun with the post-ceremony photoshoot we could have gone on for hours; but, alas, our wedding guests were waiting at the reception across town so we had to say our goodbyes. We were sent a teaser pic that same weekend, and then had all of our edited photos within the next two weeks! I highly recommend Barbara for anyone wanting intimate photos that beautifully capture natural expressions of love.

My husband and I feel so lucky to have found Barbara! It was clear from the beginning that our "tiny wedding" was in good hands. She paid attention to our style and special requests (like privacy and editing out a stain) and had a firm grasp on the things we felt to be important. The process was simple and Barbara not only gave us exactly what we wanted for our wedding photos, but she actually very much exceeded our expectations. The photos are stunningly beautiful and capture all of the details, happiness, excitement, and love of our wedding day. Today is a wash because I just can't stop looking at the online gallery. She made us look SO good! The only thing more lovely than Barbara's work is Barbara herself. Even though we didn't meet her in person until the wedding day, I felt like I had known her forever; she put us at ease, and we trusted her completely. We thoroughly enjoyed Barbara's energy; she exudes kindness and adoration, and I felt that she cared just as much about our wedding as we did. True story: I had forgotten hair pins to affix my headpiece. Barbara very graciously took the pins out of her own hair and gave them to me, therefore going above and beyond. Our guests loved her, too, and so did our Best Dog. I can't imagine working with any other photographer.

Barbara is an amazing and talented photographer. Her work is breathtaking! She is wonderful to work with, and after our first meeting we knew we could trust her to capture our day perfectly. Working with her was the easiest and best part of planning our wedding. She is incredibly creative and no matter what venue you have, she will figure out the best way to make your day extraordinary. Do yourself a favor and check our her phenomenal work, as words really can't do it justice.

Barbara is an incredible photographer, and she was a breath of fresh air to be around on our wedding day. Not only are her photos wonderful, but she was such a kind and gentle personality to interact with - my 96 year old grandmother loved her too! (I think it is important to mention this because unfortunately some wedding vendors can be very rude and abrasive -- Barbara was none of those things and was a delight) We did a first look and she was great to work with then and throughout the event. At times it felt like she wasn't even there during the ceremony and reception, which I realized afterwards is an incredible tool to have as a photographer! We've already gotten a glimpse of her photos from our wedding and we can't wait to see the rest of the batch. We feel very lucky that we booked her for our wedding day -- highest of recommendations!! Thank you, Barbara!

From the moment I spoke with Barbara, my husband and I knew she was the perfect photographer for us! After speaking with several different photographers on the phone, I was feeling a bit discouraged as we were not feeling any kind of creative connection to their work or the way they described their services. We were fearful of hiring someone that would pose us or make us feel uncomfortable. Barbara is a natural who knows just what angle to come from, gives suggestions of movements and scenes that fit your style and wedding background. The entire experience was extremely fun and the best part is that my pictures turned out amazing! Barbara exceeded our expectations with her timeliness, equipment, and creativity. The leather bound book that was part of a package is a true treasure that we will cherish for years to come. The book is classic, well-constructed, and Barbara did a beautiful job of telling our story. Your wedding is one of the best days of your life and it is important to document it with only the best. Barbara O Photography is truly the best.
