"One of our friends had Ballad as their photographer for their wedding and I absolutely loved her photographs and the style of Ballad's work. When we were offered a chance to get our engagement photos done with her I immediately took the opportunity! Through the process of wedding planning I contacted Ballad several times to discuss the wedding timeline and always asked her a million questions and every time she was polite and SO helpful!!! On the day of the wedding I was a little stressed but Ballad and her crew came in and we had a ton of fun taking pictures. The pictures came out BEAUTIFUL (can't stress this enough!) and we were very pleased with the service. Ballad is a great photographer to have on your wedding day. So helpful, open and fun, and really has a special"
"Ballad is pretty much the best photographer ever. If I could afford it, I would have her follow me around and photograph my life and it would be beautiful. She was our photographer for our wedding and it was such a wonderful day on the coast, with a perfect rain storm. She arrived early to meet with me to make sure we got some pictures together before the ceremony and I expressed my concern with the rain and that they were moving the ceremony inside, but I wanted to get married in the rain, she said LETS DO IT! She even called around to different businesses looking for clear umbrellas!! She was so incredibly supportive and really calmed me down, before the ceremony. She knows what to do and what to say to an incredibly stressed out bride. After the ceremony we met at a beach to take pictures in the rain storm, our umbrellas were turned inside out, bent, and broken in the incredible wind and rain, and she just kept shooting. I think she even fell down in the sand and kept taking pictures! We then, of course, topping off our *perfect* day locked our keys in the car in the pouring rain, she drove us back to our home so we could get a cell phone and AAA card... what a day! Although our wedding day wasn't exactly perfect, and it didnt go as planned, it was the best day of my life, and Ballad was definitely a part of it. We have beautiful pictures, that are absolutely breathtaking. I wouldnt change a single thing."
"We couldn't have been happier with our wedding photos! Not only were the photos amazing, Ballad was wonderful to work with. We weren't able to take engagement photos, so I was a little nervous about posing in front of the camera, but Ballad made us feel very comfortable and gave us great directions on posing to get some great shots. She captured so many great shots from our wedding day it's been very difficult narrowing down which photos to frame. She was professional to work with and very prompt in responding to questions or inquiries we had. A bonus of working with Ballad was the photo booth option that she offers. She has some great, fun props and judging from the pictures we could tell the guests really enjoyed this feature of our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for any event!"
