I cannot say enough good things about Pam, I saw that she had shot a wedding at the same location we chose to get married at, and I instantly fell in love and I KNEW I had to have her as our photographer. Not once did we ever feel nervous or awkward in front of the camera, she made us feel comfortable right off the bat. This was an emotional time for us, because my (the bride) grandmother passed away the day before the wedding, and she did such a fantastic job at capturing her presence within the sunlight. The photos that she took were beyond what we ever could have imagined, and they show us as a couple so well. Going with Pam as our photographer was the best decision we could have ever made, she managed to capture every emotion that was experienced that day. Her light hearted quips and positive attitude kept us in the moment that we will forever remember.

Where do I begin. From the first email Pam’s spirit and love for what she does showed through. When we first met it was like saying hello to an old friend, and trust me this is so important when you have a camera in your face:) I can honestly say that without Pam, my wedding day would have looked a lot different, she was on top of everything, from the timeline to making sure we knew what to expect. She was everything I could of hoped for, and of course the photos are beyond what I could have every dreamed. Thank you won’t ever be enough.

"On our wedding day we felt so comfortable with her and we had a blast taking our photos. She went above and beyond to make sure that we had beautiful shots. We received our photos very quickly after the wedding and they are breathtaking. She captured every detail beautifully. We could not have dreamt of better photos to tell the story of our day!" - Ashley & Bobby

She instantly made us feel at ease and had us laughing the entire time. Her constant words of affirmation were so encouraging and she made us feel like naturals. After that, we were completely ready for our wedding and, thankfully, not the least bit nervous

There aren’t enough positive things to say about Pam Cooley Photography! Wedding planning is overwhelming, but the second we booked with Pam, we knew our photography was completely under control. We weren’t even 20 minutes into our engagement session before my fiancé (at the time) whispered to me that he wanted to book her officially for the wedding! .. and he was the nervous one! She made our engagement session so easy and nerve free and welcomed our two dogs like they were her own!!! Her PHOTOS speak for themselves! So dreamy and amazing! ... Pam even took it upon herself to create a timeline to follow since I wasn’t the best bride at all of the details!! ... THEN! The wedding day. Holy smokes! She was so easy going, welcomed our crazy family AND gave us direction when we needed it. What more could you ask for?! The best part?! We didn’t spend hours upon hours doing awkward poses or making our friends and family take loads of pictures.. we got what we needed quickly and they are AMAZING! We found ourselves stalking her FB/IG page for sneak peeks and drooling over all of them! And we got our pictures SO FAST! ... I would recommend Pam Cooley ten times over for engagement/wedding/anything!
