A love note from Alyssa + Emily Shively:


"Aireal is the best! We chose her to photograph our wedding because she is an LGBTQIA+ friendly photographer, which is pretty difficult to find in this area (West Virginia). We thought that her website was easy to navigate, and she has really detailed descriptions of packages, so you know exactly what you’re getting. She was super easy to work with both before and during the wedding.

We appreciated all of her check-ins and she even made a photography timeline for us to help us know when specific photos would take place. We were afraid we wouldn’t have enough time during our wedding to get everything captured but we actually ended up having extra time at the end. Aireal is super friendly and she made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She also gave us suggestions of poses to do instead of letting us stand there awkwardly. Aireal could probably herd cats because she managed to get all of our family and friends to stand still. The finished photos are absolutely beautiful. We are so excited to fill our wedding album with them!"

"I’m honestly convinced Aireal is wizard. I’m not sure how she manages to make me look good in all my pictures, but she does every time. She’s so easy and fun to work with and takes the time to make you feel comfortable. She goes above and beyond to help you get the most genuine smiles for your pictures too, none of those forced awkward smiles. Overall just a 10/10 experience, she’s the best!"
