Struggling to find the words to describe just how amazing Alana and Olivia were during our engagement photo shoot and wedding! From the moment we spoke with Alana over the phone we were put at ease. She is organized yet relaxed, incredibly good at her job, and the ultimate hype woman! My husband and I felt so calm and relaxed day-of because of the incredible energy Alana brought and she captured all the meaningful/fun/unexpected moments of the day perfectly! (Also we got our photos back SO quickly!!!)
I've been sitting here trying to put into words what working with Alana meant to me and my now-husband. From the first email, to the first call, to the day-of, to now, she has been the best photographer we could have imagined. We wanted a unique day, with tons of colors and textures and fun and laughter, a day that really reflected us as a couple instead of only current wedding industry trends. Besides everyone's normal worries on the big day, I was concerned that our "uniqueness" wouldn't read well on camera or would just look goofy or hoaky. She absolutely nailed it. She put us both at ease in front of the camera to the point where I wish I'd been slightly more cognizant that a camera *was* there! She gave great advice and was super communicative during the planning process. Now, the photos. THE PHOTOS Y'ALL. Between our engagement session and the wedding, I honestly can't narrow down my faves below, like, 400 photos. The color! The personality! The feelings! I found myself saying, "Oh that's a good one," out loud about nearly every photo. We've shown them to everyone who will sit still long enough to look, and I can't wait to get these printed and up on our walls! It really is like reliving the day all over again; we got emotional just looking at the pics again. She'll deliver 100-fold.
We could not have asked for a better photographer for our engagement photos and our wedding! We still can't believe the photos and how they turned out! Seriously in love with every single photo! She did such an amazing job the whole day and also was just a wonderful person to work with! She is who you want for your wedding or engagement or just any photos! Thank you so much Alana!! You captured such wonderful moments of our day and we will cherish these photos forever!!
If you are looking for a photographer, Alana Lindenfeld Photography is absolutely the way to go! My husband and I absolutely loved working with Alana throughout our wedding journey! Alana did our engagement photos, our small family wedding pictures and our destination wedding in Cancún, Mexico. She takes absolutely beautiful pictures and her editing style is so colorful and makes every event look so bright and happy! I can only say positive things about her and about our experience! She listened to all of the things we wanted, she was flexible and accommodating, and she gave great suggestions that turned into stunning pictures! Working with Alana is so wonderful because she makes you feel so comfortable and makes everything so fun! She went truly above and beyond for us and we are so happy with all of our engagement and wedding pictures! If you want beautiful, colorful, fun, romantic, and stunning photos, make sure you check out Alana! You won't be disappointed!
She was super responsive and helpful with my fiancé as he was organizing the perfect surprise proposal. Alana played "the part" perfectly and had me caught totally by surprise until my fiancé was down on one knee. She captured SO SO SO many perfect "in the moment" shots for us to cherish forever. Alana had us pose in a variety of ways, in different locations after the proposal for some cool "cheers-ing" shots. While one of the rooftops did not allow pictures with a professional camera, Alana offered to take pictures on our phones. She also was so flexible and helpful in finding an alternative location to get more shots and even offered to stay over the end time a bit for us. On top of all of this, Alana edited and sent us our sneak peeks within a day so we could post about our engagement, and sent the rest of the pictures within the week. She was such a joy to work with and helped us capture the most perfect day.
How do I even begin to wrap up all that Alana is within a single Google review!?!? Alana has been nothing but absolutely PHENOMENAL throughout our whole professional relationship. We hired her as our wedding photographer after being social media friends since our engagement (a little over a year) and I tell her and everyone else all the time that we really could not have picked a better person to do the job. We got to see how she worked at our engagement photos and from that moment on, I had no worries about how things were going to turn out. If you also choose Alana to shoot your event, you will not be disappointed and every expectation will be blown out of the galaxy. Alana was informative, helpful, and offered several bits of advice during my whole planning timeline. Her system for payment was very easy to use and understand, her contract laid everything out and her business processing was the epitome of professional yet personable.
Now onto the photos!!! I myself am easy to get going when looking at photos, but when I tell you that Alana captured emotions within her photos, I sincerely mean it! She did not just capture moments or memories, she captured every emotion that myself and our family/friends/guests were feeling. I have cried, laughed, and cried some more every time I go to look at the photos she delivered.
Thank you Alana!!! We cannot wait to have a reason to have you capture our little family yet again!!!
My fiancé and I are professional musicians, and he's an actor and I'm a model -- so we've met our fair share of photographers throughout the years.
But we've got to say...Alana is unbeatable for natural, vibrant, joyous, jaw-droppingly beautiful results. We worked with her back in 2017 when we all first moved to Chicago, and the images were insanely gorgeous even back then -- so impressive, in fact, that Koray had the idea on the spot to hire Alana for when he would propose...which he DID this month by planning a surprise proposal shoot -- Alana was not only the perfect accomplice in carrying out the surprise in its entirety, but the resultant shots are RIDICULOUSLY beautiful! She really went above and beyond, and gave us SO many incredible images along with a video of the entire proposal. Because of her, we have these stunning shots to always remember the moment by...and we'll definitely cherish them forever. I can't even imagine having that kind of pressure to capture totally candid moments in beautiful ways, but Alana can definitely do that with ease. The colors, the angles, the expression, the emotion - the LIFE - that she captures is unparalleled. We can say with certainty that whether you'll looking for a wedding, engagement, proposal, just-because, graduation, family, etc. photographer, she will get the job done and even surpass expectations every time. Thank you Alana!!
Needless to say, our photos turned out beautifully, but the experience was 5 star. Alana was attentive and listened to our needs to make our day what we wanted. We were so excited to get our photo previews the SAME NIGHT of our wedding too! If we could do our wedding day all over again, we wouldn't think twice about using Alana Lindenfeld Photography.
