Client Testimonials - Not Your Mama's Photography

"I can't say enough great things about Lora and Isaac, they work so well together and made our day perfect. I could not imagine having anyone else with us on our wedding day, they are so organized and accommodating. Our guests loved them just as much as we do! Lora even did the worm with our best man and Isaac busted out some groovy dance moves too! Highly recommend hiring both of them for photography and DJ services. We had an outdoor ceremony with no electricity and Isaac made sure we had music and a microphone for the service. Thank you two, we love you guys!!"

"Our experience with Lora and Isaac was nothing short of incredible! We were invited to dinner, where they took the time to found out "our story"; where my wife and I met, talked about our families, and they calmed some fears leading up to our big day. Their experience came in handy when talking about our reception, and they suggested some items we could eliminate to save time and money. We're gald we listened!

Our engagement photo session was scheduled weeks in advance, but was the day after one of the biggest snow storms of the season. That didn't stop them from traveling to Rochester and spending hours patiently picking out the best spots downtown for our pics. Weddings are super freakin' stressful, but our photographers were the least of our worries. Isaac helped my groomsmen with their ties, while Lora helped the ladies with their finishing touches. They did far more than any photographer would, and were quick to lend a hand with our wedding party in whatever they needed. We never felt rushed, we didn't have to second-guess their expertise, and we were more than satisfied with the amount of poses and pictures that were snapped during a very long day.

As day turned to evening, we were amazed that Lora was still taking pics at our reception long after the speeches, the dinner and first dances, well into several kegs being tapped and the guests getting crazy! Even then, she made sure we had pics with all the guests we wanted, and closed out the evening like a true professional. We could not be happier with "Not Your Mama's" and could not recommend them highly enough to take the photos for whatever your occasion may be. I'm confident you'll feel the same. Thanks Lora and Isaac!"

"Where to begin...we couldn't brag any more about our engagment session...the patience, fun filled, family oriented vibe that we felt that day was just a few things we loved! Lora does fantastic work. We never once felt rushed and they welcomed our sweet little boy into our session as well, which was very important to us."
