Courtney was amazing

Courtney did my wedding photos in November 2023 and did an INCREDIBLE job! My bridesmaids still bring up how much they loved my wedding photographer, Courtney, because she was quick, told you exactly what she wanted/needed, “got sh*t done,” and still let us have so much fun. All while documenting beautifully. The combination of posed and candid photos I got in my photo package was perfect. I seriously could not be happier that I chose LUX Wedding Photography to capture my wedding day.

5 stars doest seem enough

We are SO happy we chose LUX for our Wedding Day. Courtney and Richard were amazing to work with. They helped make our day run SO smoothly and kept us on schedule. We felt so comfortable with them during our photo session and they kept us laughing the whole time. We got our sneak peeks the day after our big day and they came out BEAUTIFUL! They perfectly captured our joy and the beautiful autumn foliage. They ensured that they got every shot that we asked for and even captured so many details that I didn't even think to mention! We have received so many compliments on how great they were during the day, and endless comments on how beautiful the pictures are. To say I am obsessed is an understatement. We cannot thank Courtney and Richard enough for making our day so special and for capturing these beautiful memories

Mike and Natalie

10/10 recommend. Courtney & Richard were excellent. They arrived early, kept the day light and fun, and even went above and beyond to help us get our dog in some of our photos. We would have been lost during planning without Richard as a sounding board to recommend an amazing DJ, florist, cake maker and make timeline suggestions.

simply an amazing service

If I could give LUX Wedding Photography more than 5 stars, I would! WOW! Richard and Courtney were phenomenal, they captured every moment and didn't miss a beat! They had fun, shared laughs, and were a huge part of our special day! They interacted with our bridal party and guests throughout the whole night. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a photographer! Our day could not have gone more perfect, and we couldn't have done it without the help of Richard and Courtney. They were professional, helpful and eased any and all stress we had. If you're looking for fun, entertaining, amazing photographers, look no further and hire LUX!!!

OMG they're just wonderful

LUX Wedding Photography are amazing! From beginning to end the service was fantastic. Courtney was highly responsive to emails and open to ideas and my visions for our wedding day photos. Courtney made it extremely easy the day of and she took initiative to be sure we were on time all day and that everything flowed. She was more than just our photographer! We are so happy with all of our photos, and they were available for viewing much faster than others from what I have heard from other brides! Richard and Ashleigh were a great addition to the team, and their work was appreciated throughout the day. They all truly know what they are doing and are very passionate about it as well. We highly recommend LUX Wedding Photography especially Courtney and her team!

couldn't be happier

They were great support before the wedding, especially with the test photo shoot as we were both nervous and they helped put us at ease. they fitted in perfectly at our wedding being supportive, guiding us to the different photos needed yet blended in to the background so they didn't take over the day with photos. We were surprised to get 20 photos on the day which helped bridge the gap until we received the full album 3 weeks later. Honestly we couldn't be happier can highly recommend them
