"Will was amazing to work with! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture both of our special days. He went above and beyond to make sure me as the bride had every moment I wanted captured! He was also phenomenal with my family that dragged him all over to take their photos. I would recommend him to everyone!"
