“Wow – speechless!! and for anyone who knows me that is a rare thing!! Your photo gallery for Chris and Astrid is more than words can describe. Being “the mom” I know that my comments may be viewed as stilted, but I’m that age where I have had the privilege to be at more than a few weddings lately and seen more than a few photographers’ work. Yours is outstanding.
You’ve captured for all time, the feelings and emotions that shine through people’s faces. I know the kids well, and their “looks” and their body language which sometimes, most times, speaks louder than their actual verbal communication. Then seeing your photographs of them with that sheer joy, happiness, contentment, and love shining through warms me to the core. Believe me, whenever I am missing them, or wondering how they are I will be looking at these photos and remembering how much they love each other. And,…I’ll be reminding them to do the same when differences make them wonder what they are doing.
I just want to thank you for being who you are and having found what is obviously your special way of expressing you and sharing with the world. I know that you could not put together such meaningful stories without the understanding within yourselves of what’s important and what emotions are showing. Just like outstandingly successful journalists have followed the tried-and-true advice to write about what they know, you “write about what you know”.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”
“Mindy and Joriana- I don’t even know what to say about the album. Everything about this entire process has been perfect from the start. From the day you told us you were camping on the beach for our wedding me and Chris fell in love 🙂 haha. But really- I could not have asked for a better photographer to work with or better people to share my wedding day with. You were truly a huge, enormous part of my day and I cannot even imagine working with another photographer. I am soooo happy with our engagement pictures, the slideshow, the album…everything. I am so in love with your work that I can’t explain it any other way than “perfect”. I look back and that is all I can think- absolutely perfect!!! Thank you both so much for everything! You absolutely confirmed that I made the right decision by choosing you guys as our photographers- and as someone who is slightly obsessed with photography 🙂 it was a pleasure just learning, watching and observing the work that you do- a million times over- THANK YOU!!!!”
“I have watched the preview of photos probably twenty times and I am still not tired of it. You two are amazing artists that truly capture a person’s inner feelings in your photos. The mood of the day was evident. First we cried and smiled in the sacredness and joy of the ceremony and later cried and smiled at the reception with our great band, friends and family.
You make a fantastic mother-daughter team and the two of you are easy to work with and a true joy to have around on such a special day!
Thank you for helping to make this wedding so special.”
“Chris is my son. I can’t even express how beautiful these photos are. I absolutely believe that you have found the key to truly meaningful photo memories. The two of you have all the artistic ability and the emotional, compassionate understanding to capture, on the outside, what shines from the inside. Chris and Astrid unexpectedly dropped by last night to watch the dvd with me. It brought tears to my eyes to see the happiness captured forever. Right after Chris and Astrid left I had a call from my daughter that she was in the neighborhood and was coming over. She and a friend watched the dvd with me again. They are both single in committed relationships. We all agreed when and if they ‘get the ring’ they will be calling you. Your work is truly marvelous. I can’t thank you enough. I am really looking forward to meeting you at the wedding. I am excited to see the wedding photos. I know they will be stunning and filled with the face! s of the emotions of the day. I am so glad Astrid found you!!!!”
“Mindy and Joriana,
Thank you SO much for being our photographers. You were both such joys to work with as we prepared for the 24th, and so wonderful the day of. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
You put our wedding to film better than we’d ever imagined. The shots are absolute treasures. It’s each moment that was meaningful, important, and fun captured to enjoy again and again.
Anyone who chooses you as their photographers is going to be beyond pleased. Thank you for a job amazingly well done, and thanks for being really great people. We feel very lucky to have had you there.”
“Mindy, with Ever After Visuals, truly made my wedding day magical. Almost a year later, I can look at the beautiful pictures she took, and remember my wedding like it was just yesterday! In fact, I don’t even remember things looking as beautiful as they do in the photographs.
She walked the photo site the day before, and attended our rehearsal dinner. She even stayed with me from early in the morning, when I was getting dressed, all the way until we left the reception to make sure everything was perfect. The service even after the wedding was excellent! She was in constant communication with me and my husband working to preserve her beautiful artwork into an extraordinary album.
You cannot find a more talented and kind photographer. She has been absolutely amazing! She is not only extremely professional and talented, but has become a great friend.
Thank you, Mindy, and Ever After Visuals. You truly captured my happily ever after.”

From Emily Jackson, mother:
“There are not words enough to thank you for all the work you have done in taking Paul and Connie’s photographs (not to mention Joseph’s and Paige’s).
And it is not easy, but you do so well. Your job, I’m now realizing, takes so much energy, patience, versatility and love (just to mention a few). And you are so good at them all…”
Travis and I can’t begin to thank you enough for the wonderful job you did at our wedding on that hot summer day of July 31, 1999. Your patience and professionalism were outstanding. Travis and I felt so at ease knowing that you had everything under control. You captured our most precious moments beautifully and gave us wonderful memories that we will treasure forever. We truly would not have made it through the day if it had not been for you being with us every step of the way. You made sure you covered all of the special requests and poses that we had arranged beforehand, while still handling them in a timely manner so as not to keep our guests waiting longer than necessary. We just cannot express enough how special you made our day.”
Travis and Christine Canepa
My son’s been married for almost a year and the pictures still make me so happy and I stsrt to cry. These pictures tell a story of a beautiful, fun, romantic outside wedding Thank you so much for all your hard work Mindy and Joriana!!
I want to express to you how very happy I was with my wedding pictures. They are absolutely beautiful! Even after all these years, I still look at them with the same pride as the first day you gave them to us. I’ve told everyone who has looked at my album that you took them and they all agree that you did a great job. You took every picture on my list and then some! You took your time and being the perfectionist that you are, you made sure every shot was just right.
It’s amazing as time goes by how much you may forget about the details that went into making your wedding day so special. That is why I feel pictures are so important. They tell the whole story again and again.
Mindy, because of you, I won’t forget anything; from getting my hair and makeup done. to walking down the aisle, from sharing our first dance to cutting the cake. Those are memories that I will cherish forever. Thank you.”
I cannot begin to tell you how much we LOVE our album. You did an AWESOME job! Thank you again for all your time and effort.
Jonathan and Andrea
We love our photo’s! You did an awesome job. Thanks you so much. Not only were you present to catch all the planned “special moments” but as well as those “not so” planned moments that we will always treasure. We really appreciate the time, effort and planning that you personally put into making our day “special”, as well as all the little touches you added to make our photo’s uniquely our own. Thank you again for the wonderful job you did.”

“Mindy and Joriana,
We were years overdue for family portraits, but your photographs made it worth the wait. We never felt rushed, and I also liked the fact that you were open to suggestions for poses. Now we have the difficult task of choosing the prints we want to order!”
Mindy and Joriana:
“We love the pictures. We love the detail and the ideas that you and Joriana came up with. Everyone that I have shown the pictures to are amazed by the work you have done. I think anyone who has you do their photos will be very pleased with the work you do.”
Paul and Connie Jackson
“Wow what great pictures–we felt like we were reliving the day just by looking at them!! You and Joriana are very talented and creative, some of the shots are really unique and beautiful; we absolutely love them! Thank you so much. We will spend the next couple of weeks reviewing the proofs and picking what we want. I think we would like to have an album made and we will probably look to your creative eye and expertise in putting it together. We’ll let you know if there are any shots that we just can’t live without–that is if we can choose from the many that really touched us.”
And after receiving their album…
“Our album has been a HUGE hit. Everyone that we have shared it with has just been amazed at the pictures, the layout and the style of the book itself. No one has ever seen anything like it! Again, we just love it.”
“And Mindy….have I mentioned lately how awesome you are? I’m so happy that we’re working with you!!! I just wanted to let you know, we are so happy with everything that you have done. The pictures that you and Joriana took are absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for doing such a beautiful job capturing our wedding. Everyone has said how great everything looks and I know my mom as well as Jeff’s mom have already recommended you to their friends who have kids getting married. I wish you both all the luck because you are both truly amazing!!
