Read through what some of our clients have to say about our studio!


“Lou, and her team members, were a joy to work with. With all the things I had to worry about for my wedding, photography was not one of them. My husband is they type to not want to take pictures and dreaded going to our engagement session. Lou made it fun, and got him excited about taking pictures! I didn’t think this was possible! On the wedding day she was organized and kept everyone on track for all of the small and big group pictures. She made sure that my husband and I left our reception at the right time to get the pictures at sunset that we really wanted (and turned out better than we could have imagined). With her great attention to detail, she was able to capture the most beautiful photographs that we will treasure forever! “- Leah & Kevin Lind


“When you look at Lou’s photos, you can see her talent for taking pictures. What you can’t see–but can imagine–is her gift for helping her clients feel comfortable being captured by her talented eye and technical skill. I’ve watched Lou shoot a wedding and business events. She knows how to keep things rolling, put people at eas, and add to the experince as well as preserve it. Hers is a Point of View you want on your team!” – Lisa Markman



  “Working with Lou was such a great experience! From our first meeting over coffees to our engagement/family photo session to the day of our wedding it was nothing but a pleasure. We absolutely LOVE all of our pictures!! She captured all of the amazing moments of our wedding day and kept me nice and calm during it 🙂 It was also the hottest day of the year so taking pictures wasn’t high on the kids list but she was able to keep them engaged and get some wonderful pictures of them. The artistic layout of our wedding album is gorgeous – she has great attention to detail. We previewed our album online before it went to print and only made 2 minor changes – that’s how good she is I highly recommend Lou – you will not be disappointed! We are so thankful to have such beautiful pictures/memories of our wedding day.”
Robert & Tessa Golden 

“Lou was amazing! She was so personable and definitely made our day less  stressful. Our families loved her, and she did a great job of engaging with everyone in the party and worked hard to remember everyone’s name. Definitely a fantastic find. The studio was great and working with us and customizing a great photography package for us!!”

It was so amazing having point of view by Lou at our wedding. She took lots of pictures and we definitely got our money’s worth. She was flexible and got amazing photos of everything:)had lots of fun and got fun pictures. I couldn’t have been happier with anyone else -Lori & Ryan  

We had the privilege of working with Lou not once, but twice this year and both times have been an absolute delight. In the early part of the year, we decided to have a family photo taken as it has been years since we had one done and then it was not by a  good photographer. It was with some trepidation that we set up our appointment. Then Lou came into our life and changed all that. She took the pictures at our home and made us feel very comfortable and of course the pictures came out fantastic, we couldn’t be happier. Last year, we had a family wedding. My son Sean & Jannie tied the knot in August. My first though was to contact Lou to cover this historic event. We wanted to make sure that the pictures that would memorialize this wedding would be the very best. Once again, we were not disappointed, Lou did a fantastic job. We would highly recommend Point of View by Lou for anyone who is serious about having the very best when it comes to photographs, because Lou is exactly that.”

“We hired Lou on the recommendation of a mutual friend and we could not be happier with her work, her patience and her commitment to completing the job (even though we were somewhat indecisive and high maintenance). We are very happy with her work and we are even happier that, in addition to finding a family photographer, we found a new family friend. We highly recommend Lou and we plan to use her for family photography in the future.” Ralph & Wendy Flick
