Viva, took the pictures for my grandparent's 60th Wedding Anniversary party and they turned out beautifully! Not only did she capture all of the most special moments perfectly (posed and candid shots!) but she even arrived at the event 2 hours early! She was polite, professional, and a pure joy to work with. I am so happy that we found Viva and my entire family is thrilled with our pictures!

VIVA!!! Wow working with her was a joy. She is one who you can trust. From the first time we spoke on the phone, the first time we met, to the day of my wedding I was very much so pleased! Her work is absolutely stunning. Viva made sure kept in contact with me never leaving my husband or myself in the clouds. She made the most out of my experience and we are very much pleased with her service!

Viva is an amazing professional who with her vivacious personality and talented lens brings the spark, in the moment to a visual. In our group photo, she captured each diverse personality, weaving it into a fun-filles tapestry. How did she do that? Quite magical and terrific fun working with Viva.
