Anna has a disarming style and approach that allows you to just relax and forget she is there taking your picture, which is how the best, most intimate, honest moments get captured. From a planning and preparation perspective, she made things incredibly easy. She wanted to know about the details that mattered most to us and was excited about those details. Anna delivered a seamless set of photos that significantly exceeded our expectations, and we could not be happier with the moments that she captured. I cannot speak highly enough about Anna’s work. Incredible!
Anna is absolutely fantastic!! She's not only an incredibly talented, creative and skilled photographer, but also a wonderful person to work with. She was as excited about taking our photographs as we were about having them done. You can tell within minutes that she loves what she does and photography is not her job, but her passion. She has an incredible eye and an amazing ability to capture the feelings in a photograph more than just the people. Looking through all of the photos she took actually brought tears to my eyes- I couldn't have dreamed of better ones. My husband and I have definitely found our lifelong family photographer and will be using Anna to capture all of our special moments for many years to come. To me, photographs are so important because they take your memories and make them tangible so you can share them with everyone. Choosing Anna as your photographer will be the best wedding day decision you make- I guarantee it! Lastly, a special heartfelt thanks to Anna for perfectly capturing the love and admiration my husband and I have for each other in the most beautiful photographs we've ever had!!
There truly aren't enough words to describe how amazing Anna is! From day one she was so responsive and extremely helpful every step of the way! She's so sweet and enthusiastic, which really kept me calm! Her work is absolutely incredible and we can't stop looking at the photos! We love you Anna!!
What can I say about Anna? She is incredible. We had to reschedule our engagement shoot three times thanks to the monsoons we've been having, and she couldn't have been more accommodating and understanding. That's very helpful when you just want things to go smoothly, and it seems nothing in the wedding world is that way. More importantly than her flexibility and responsiveness is her art. Her photographs are breathtaking--she even was able to make my fiance look like he wanted to be there for the shoot (and he was sick and he's not a photo person!). She had a sneak peek of the pictures up for us that very same night, and the entire album back to us within a week. Many of my friends who were married in the past few years actually said they wished they could have had Anna for their events, the way our photos turned out. I was so nervous to hand over creative control to a photographer, as I'm usually the one behind the camera capturing the moments for myself and my friends. However, after our engagement shoot, I know we are in great hands for our wedding next year.
Anna was simply perfect. I'm so happy she was the photographer for my wedding, and she truly delivered in so many ways. She's kind, fun, calm and organized, and it was honestly like having another friend at the wedding. Not only did she deliver the most beautiful images I could have possibly imagined, she got a whole sample album to us the day after the wedding! Everyone who has seen my photos has gushed over them, complimenting Anna's work, and for good reason! I highly recommend Anna Schmidt Photography. It is well worth the investment!
In sum: wow. Anna Schmidt and her assistant were the epitome of professional, patient, and efficient on the day of our wedding. Since our first consultation with Anna, we were struck by her calming influence and positive attitude. Moreover, she has a love and passion for the work she does and it comes across both in person and in the gorgeous pictures she takes. We could not be happier with Anna Schmidt Photography and the photos of our wedding, and would happily reach out to her if we ever need a photographer in the future. Highly recommend Anna Schmidt Photography to anyone looking for a professional photographer who is easy to work with and delivers breathtaking results!!
Anna was absolutely incredible! I shopped around on Wedding Wire & The Knot quite a bit for a photographer and Anna's work really caught my eye. I immediately sent her an email- her quick response, excitement, and willing to meet me in person to talk about my wedding really helped me feel like she truly cared about what I envisioned for our big day. From that first meeting to the wedding day, she was always full of ideas but also really sought my input. She was extremely organized the day of the wedding and had plenty of assistance to get all the shots we wanted. My whole family was teary-eyed going through our photos when we got them back. She truly did an amazing job!
Stop looking around! Anna is it! She and her team photographed our New Year's Eve wedding and our photos turned out absolutely fabulous! She met with us months prior to our wedding to get the vibe we were looking for and executed everything perfectly! She's very responsive, organized and has a true passion for what she does! She gave us the BEST idea of getting some rooftop photos since our wedding ran into the new year so that we'd have the city fireworks in the background! Lastly, Anna had ALL of our photos back to us in no time! I cannot recommend her enough!
Anna is the BEST and was by far my favorite vendor!!! From the day I met her, I knew I wanted her as my photographer. I met with several other photographers, but her personality stood out to me right away as somebody I wanted around me on my big day- in addition to her amazing photographs! At our initial meeting she seemed genuinely interested in what we were planning and seemed excited to be part of it. We shot our engagement photos in the fall and had to change the date once because of weather- she was extremely flexible and made sure everything worked out perfectly. They turned out amazing! ... On the day of, I could not have been more happy with Anna and the team that she brought with her. She had our preview ready for us THE NIGHT OF THE WEDDING, which was unbelievable! We can't wait to see the rest of the photos, as the preview was amazing and I could not be happier that we chose Anna as our photographer. I will be recommending her to anyone and everyone that is getting married or needs a photographer for anything else- you cannot go wrong with Anna!!!
Anna was absolutely perfect! She really listened and made us so comfortable! Our pictures came out more stunning than I could have ever imagined! She brought a second photographer, Lauren, who was amazing as well! Her assistant Ashley was also wonderful. She is a real pro with lighting and the perfect poses! Super organized!
I cannot recommend Anna highly enough! She not only is a genuinely wonderful person, her work behind the camera is phenomenal. Anna made both the engagement and wedding day photo process painless, efficient, and enjoyable. I am so happy to have met her and cannot imagine having anyone else share our special day!
Prepare to fall in love... With your photographer! Anna will charm you with her personality and her beautiful photographs. She's a joy to work with and can make any harried bride feel at ease. She posted a preview of our photos within 12 hours of the event's end and also finished completely editing our photos 5 weeks earlier than the advertised time frame. She is truly dedicated to her work and her love for photography is evident in the care that she takes with each person and click of the shutter. Thanks Anna and her team!
Anna was a complete joy to work with. I knew right after meeting with her that I'd like her to shoot our wedding. She just seemed like such a warm, thoughtful person - and I figured it's important to like your photographer since you spend so much of your wedding day with her!
I'm happy to say that our first impressions were exactly right. I'd been kind of worried about being photographed so much, since I'm not actually a model. And I wanted the getting ready time to really be a time to bond with my bridesmaids, not a long photo shoot. I felt comfortable right away with Anna when she arrived! She had great ideas for shots and was great at directing all of us. From the getting ready pics through the reception, Anna and her team were so easy to work with.
And most importantly, the photos look great! We actually received a preview the night of the wedding, which was unexpected and very impressive!
I wholeheartedly recommend Anna as a wedding photographer. I'm so glad that we'll have these wonderful pictures to look back on, and that getting the shots was a fun process.
Anna was the photographer for my son's wedding. It was a very intimate affair (only 11 people including the bride and groom) and I was so impressed at her ability to be unobtrusive. She blended into our space and was able to capture fantastic expressions and moments. Anna was so very in tune with our group and seemed to have the camera pointed in the right direction at every time.
The pictures Anna took with JUST the bride and groom were sweet, peaceful, romantic, and warm. These are shots they will look back at for years to come and they will smile.
Best of all, the photos were cleaned up and sent to us within DAYS of the wedding. I've never gotten photos back so fast from a professional photographer. It was fantastic!!
Anna is not only an incredible artist, but is also one of the kindest and most genuine people you will ever meet. Her warmth, passion, and infectious personality make her a joy to be around and her beautiful photographs never cease to amaze and inspire me!
