Let me start of by saying my wedding was two days ago and after seeing only some of the pictures I had to write this review! Deborah is not only professional, kind and a pleasure to work with, her pictures exceeded my expectations. ..which is not easy to do! On your special day you will feel so amazing that days after you will want nothing more but to see pictures and relive that day! I can't tell you how many times friends of mine wished they didn't see their pictures because in their heads it was better...well for me I can say Deborah captured the best day of my life in the best way I could have hoped for. She took the most amazing pictures!!! I could actually send out the links because I am so proud of every photo! You will not be disappointed! This is a day you don't get back and when all is said and done you only have your photos so trust me when I say I will be using Deborah again for all of lives precious moments!

Deborah O'Brien was, by far, one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. She is wonderful! Throughout the whole process, she made us so comfortable and was always available for any help, advice, or answering questions. Constantly friendly and upbeat, she was a pleasure to work with. On wedding day, she was amazing. She is such a pro, having done this so many times, that she knew exactly what we needed to do, and was so helpful with keeping the day flowing. She also helped me, a stressed out bride, tremendously. And the photos are amazing!! She captured every moment! I received so many compliments on how our photographer was everywhere, but never in the way or intrusive in any way. We couldn't have asked for more. The hardest part has been choosing our favorites from so many amazing photos! I can't thank Deborah enough for preserving all of the special memories from our day. The actual day flies by, and all feels like such a dream. Having the photos to remember the day is so important. Deborah can capture those memories like no one else, and she makes everyone feel so comfortable at the same time. She's just the best, hands down!

I could not imagine sharing this day with anyone else! From beginning to end you were there with a warm heart and smile that brought such comfort and joy for all of us! We had so many people comment on your amazing energy! I was so excited to get your email today - and those pictures are magnificent! We hope that you had fun I know it was a bit crazy! You will forever hold a very special place in our hearts! Thank you for everything - we definitely want you to photograph ALL of our special life events from here on out! Thanks again for everything! So much love and gratitude!

Working with Deborah was truly a joy. With all the stress that a wedding day can bring she really made things easy. She was very professional and easy to work with. She knew exactly when to get the best shots during the ceremony and was very creative with angles and poses. We had given her groups of people and scenarios of pictures we wanted throughout the day, and she was able to capture all of them. We ended up with so many choices, and different colors of pictures to choose from. Deborah really met all of our needs and made our day extra special! Because of her we have so many pictures to cherish. Our only problem was picking our favorites because we loved them all. Deborah you were awesome, and thanks for such a memorable day!!

Deborah O’Brien was our photographer for a summer wedding. She was attentive to details that we had not even considered. She was patient and gentle spirited through all interactions. She asked questions that helped us make later decisions, which we found very helpful. She showed interest in knowing what it was that would make this day especially wonderful for us. On the day of the wedding, she was calm and focused. She had asked us to prepare a list of all persons we wanted photographed which she thoughtfully attended to. She was creative in setting the scene as backdrop for our portrait pictures. Her candid pictures were fabulous. She made excellent use of light and camera angle so as to maximize the outcome. I will say as an older bride that she minimized any signs of my aging, which certainly made me smile as I looked back on the day. She was so willing to help us with any question or concern and it was noteworthy that I found her to always go the extra distance in her desire to make us happy with her service. She took so many beautiful pictures that we are challenged to limit our selection for our wedding album. I would highly recommend this photographer.

Deborah was recommended to my husband and me by the owner of a venue we toured—he stated that she was the only photographer he ever recommends. We met with her, looked at her photos, and booked her immediately. We also asked her to do our engagement photos which was a very helpful in knowing that she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. She made everyone feel very comfortable. She got all of the photos that we wanted and made the whole experience and process relaxing and carefree. Deborah was very fun to work with and made everyone in our wedding party feel comfortable. We had a great time and are so, so happy with the way all of our photos turned out! Her pricing is very fair and she offers many different packages to choose from. She worked with us to make sure that we paid within our budget while getting everything that we wanted. The experience could not have been better!

Our wedding photos are truly amazing. We started working with Deborah five months prior to the wedding and had very detailed discussion of what we wanted. She did exactly what she said she would do and then some. We did not want the standard posed photos, exclusively. The candid shots in the chapel and other personal moments were beautifully captured and are my favorites. She is professional, timely, well prepared and the best photographer with whom we have worked. It was the best investment we made for the day.

We are so happy to have chosen Deborah to photograph our wedding last May. We interviewed a handful of photographers but as soon as we meet Deborah we knew she was the one! Deborah was a lot of fun to work with and her helpful suggestions resulted in many unique and memorable wedding photos. Deborah is truly a professional and she brings much knowledge and creativity to her work. She made sure to capture every special moment of our wedding. Our wedding guests were impressed by her charming personality. We would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again.

We love our wedding photos! Deborah took over 1200 at our wedding and they are beautiful. She made sure to find out exactly what we wanted and was always available. She posted a sampling immediately and the turnaround for the rest of them was fast. Highly recommended!

It was a complete pleasure working with Deborah O'Brien. She was always available for questions both before and after the ceremony. She took 800+ exposures over a 5+ hour wedding, including both beautifully posed formal shots and outstanding candid shots; at no time, however, was she ever intrusive or in the way. We are still assembling the photos for inclusion in our album, which is difficult because there are so many lovely photos. I am a very experienced amateur photographer, and I have to say that her creative use of lighting and framing is many notches above what one ordinarily sees from professional photographers.

One could not ask for a more professional and personable wedding photographer than Deborah O'Brien. While staging natural and poised group shots with exquisite care and design, we never felt "ordered around" or stiff with discomfort. Deborah was like a very talented friend in the wings-- capturing impromptu moments that were magical in retrospect and finding some way to always create gorgeous images, no matter what the lighting or challenge. She gracefully, graciously shot dozens of family portraits to maximize the chances that everyone looked their best and she listened carefully to all our suggestions and concerns since it was a second marriage. Both black and white and color shots were crisp, vivid and breathtaking. Always courteous, punctual, and joyful, she contributed to the overall tone of the wedding in this amazing, yet always unobtrusive way. Recommending her highly is as easy as accepting my husband's proposal-- a unequivocal resounding yes, is all I can say!

Working with Deborah was a wonderful experience. She was both highly professional and flexible all at once. She scouted out the wedding site prior to the actual date to plan where she would shoot and to anticipate the available light. She shot amazing engagement photos and the photos from the wedding were superb. Her portrait shots are a particular strength. At all times she was a delightful combination of efficiency yet relatedness- she made everyone feel comfortable while at the same time being completely unobtrusive to the event. I recommend her most highly and work with her again in an instant.
Gail
She was calming and reassuring for a nervous bride. She was so patient and pleasant with all the guests' "suggestions" for shots. She was wonderful to deal with. When setting up shots she was great; she did not order us around like you hear some wedding photographers do. She wanted to take the photos that we wanted her to take. She was careful to check with us before she left to be sure there wasn't anything else we wanted her to take before she left. The photos are beautiful. There are so many wonderful pictures, it was incredibly hard to narrow down the ones to order. Deborah is truly a pleasure to work with.
