In May of 2012 we changed our name from Surreal Image Studios to Puccini Photography, as we are now known.
Since some of the testimonials were sent to us prior to the name change, you will see both names mixed in. Don't worry, it's always been us (Maggie & Kristin), just now with a better name!
"I felt really relaxed and at ease with you guys doing the photography. I was able to enjoy the day and not worry that any parts would be missed. We really enjoyed taking the photos, you guys made it a lot of fun, even the guys enjoyed it. I was so comfortable knowing that you were getting all the pictures that were important to us.
It was the best wedding photography experience I have ever had. I have been involved in other weddings where the photographers took over. You guys got the photos without a lot of posing. The guest felt comfortable with your job and many asked about you, where we had found you.
I have gotten more compliments on my wedding album than I can say. Everyone loves it. I just love the artistic side, the way it tells the story of our day, the details. I love the way you caught the expressions in the moment instead of having to pose them.
I have friends that did not get the photos of their wedding day, it is so sad. Some got little 4x6 pictures in a small (store bought) book. Some have nothing. They really loved my album. I think a lot wish they had something like that from their wedding.
I would feel very comfortable recommending you to friends. The images and book were definitely worth more than what we paid."

" Kristin and Maggie with Surreal Image Studios are a very dynamic duo that work exceptionally well with each other and their clients. With both of them working together a bride gets the best possible angles and footage of all the special moments. They also do an excellent job of keeping a relaxed and fun atmosphere the entire time they are shooting. I would recommend them to anyone in need of professional pictures. "

"Before we found Surreal Image Studios, I was completely frustrated with looking at all the different packages for photographers and what was NOT included in them. Finding Kristin and Maggie was great and just the overview of the packages were easy to understand.
Kristin and Maggie made my wedding great by capturing our favorite memories. The dvd made me cry! And I have never had so much fun at a photo shoot then I did at our engagment photos and the bridal shoot.
My suggestion to every bride considering Puccini Photography is to get the whole package! Kristin and Maggie are great to be around and make it fun.
I'm really glad I got more than one day out of my wedding dress by doing a bridal shoot, especially since it rained on my wedding day!"

" Kristin & Maggie,
I do not know where to begin to thank you for all you did. Everything that I asked for you went above & beyond just so you knew I would be happy. I thoroughly enjoyed the engagement & bridal session. It was so relaxed and we shared so much laughter. It was just like a day in the park with family.
I love looking through the pictures because you captured the beauty and emotion of the wedding so well. I really appreciated the fact that you were always on time and very well prepared. I knew from the moment you asked about my engagement ring that you would care about all the little details. I also appreciated how you respected our wishes and got the family portraits done quickly and painlessly so we could have downtime [before the wedding]. There are some things I know I would've forgotten but you captured them and I'm so grateful.
Thank you for always responding so quickly to my emails. I love how you put the pictures up so quickly and I love the set up of choosing favorites. Thank you for all of your work putting together the albums. I also have to thank you for working with our idea of glow sticks [for the exit] and adapting so we could get good photos. You were just very flexible and we really appreciated all of your patience!
We will come to you whenever we need pictures! Your work is artistic and exquisite! Thanks for all the sweet gifts and wonderful memories we can cherish and look through forever. "

"We really needed a photographer that was easy to work with, kind and understandable. We also needed someone to work with our tight budget.
It was wonderful having two photographers! I really feel like every moment was captured from our wedding. You kept us up to date with everything during the whole process, which kept me at ease. Anything I asked for I got, with no problem. On the day of, you did a wonderful job guiding everyone to get the best pictures. It was obvious you knew what you were doing, and you were very professional about it at the same time.
Brides, book these ladies for your wedding! They only offer the best. When you tell them what you want, they will make it happen. They really go the distance to make your photos the best they can be! You will not be disappointed. "
