Wedding Reviews

Wow! The photos are amazing. Truly perfect. Thank you so so much. You truly have a unique ability and talent to somehow capture the magnitude of energy and love on such a special day. The photos made me cry the first five times I went through them. My mom said she had to take a half day off at work. We really appreciate you coming out. When our family of two becomes three, you'll certainly be the one we call to capture the moment. Rebecca & Clint, Seattle

I can't say enough good things. You were great to have there on the day, fun to be around and the pictures you ended up with are fabulous. I think the thing we value the most about them is that they really do tell the story of the day - not just for us, but also for the people that were there with us. Amanda O’Connor, Redmond

Wow Oona! The pictures are AMAZING. Thanks again! I am so happy we chose you to cover our big day, I will highly recommend you! Betsy Price, Gig Harbor

Colin and I just wanted to send you a very sincere thank you for your unbelievable photography at our wedding! You surpassed all our expectations and you were so generous in every way. Our photos are our most beloved wedding souvenir, and they've dazzled our family and friends. They are by far the best wedding photojournalism we've ever seen!" Emily Butler, Anchorage

We have saved your thank you note for the last, because where to begin? Your magnificent photography took our breath away. It will help our wedding to live on for generations, and we can’t thank you enough! You take photography to a sacramental level. Imelda & David Bogue, Seattle

Our pictures arrived! Thank you so very much, they are beautiful! I could not be happier!! You did fantastic work!! Hanna Knowles, Mississippi

I would definitely recommend Oona. She was professional and attentive to our needs. We barely noticed she was there which was fantastic because we were already very nervous. She is also incredibly sweet and good with children which was a plus for our 5 year old! Caris Berry

Oona is not only a lovely person, but she's a fantastic photographer. We had a tiny wedding, and Oona helped us make some really important decisions (e.g., when should certain things happen?) while we were planning, and on the day of the wedding she fit in beautifully. We are so happy with our pictures, so much so that we are having trouble narrowing down our favorites for an album! In short, Oona is fabulous from beginning to end. Nicole Guiiani

From the very beginning of our experience with Oona we knew that she would be a blessing to have part of our wedding as the photographer. Oona did an AMAZING job at our wedding, there was not one photo that she had taken that I did not like! She is a truly talented artist and is guaranteed to please! I will for sure be calling and recomending Oona for future photo shoots. You won't be sorry if you go with Oona Copperhill Photography! Lavinia Madalina

We loved working with Oona Copperhill for our wedding photos! She is professional, knowledgeable, and fun. She rolled with the punches, and our photos turned out great. Beth Clark

Oona was such a pleasure to work with and we are so glad that she photographed our unconventional wedding. We spent the day walking around Seattle and vicinity and she was there every step of the way. Her work is impeccable and the photos came out amazing. She truly takes the time and care to make sure that her clients are happy and receive the best. We appreciated her warmth and professionalism in person and over phone/email. She was recommended to me by a friend who had a wonderful experience, and I had the same. I would highly recommend her! Louisa Chu

Oona is the best, i have had several friends use her and they and we are completly happy with her pictures. She does an amazing job and gives you so many pictures to choose from it's hard to pic which is best out of her selection. Stephanie Outsen

I would highly recommend Oona Copperhill. I used Oona as my wedding photographer 6 years ago and now that I have a family, we went with Oona to get some candid shots of my child as well. She has a very laid back style but is able to capture magical shots every time. She is always a pleasure to work with! Karen Kim

Unlike any other photographer I've ever worked with. The shoots went smooth, the pictures are amazing. The shots include your typical styles, as well as her personal style which captures the other moments. I think those photos come from her photojournalist background. Thoroughly enjoyed working with Oona. Scheduling, contacting, getting questions answered, etc were always fast and pleasant. Highly recommend her as a photographer and will use her again in the future. Melissa Santoyo

Oona was wonderful to work with! She really took the time to understand who we are and what we wanted in our photos. She was delightful to work with and she created absolutely stunning images. We couldn't have asked for better! Yamaya St. Clair

In terms of our experience with Oona as our photographer, I can't say enough good things. She was great to have there on the day (unobtrusive at the right moments, but still catching many really wonderful shots), fun to be around, and the pictures she ended up with are fabulous. I think the thing we value the most about them is that they really do tell the story of the day; for me, that is the most awesome thing about photos - the way they can make you feel like you are in a place or time again, reliving that place/time - and her pictures most definitely do that for our wedding day, not just for us, but also for the people that were there with us. (Also, she gave us the complete set of digital images, including tons of edits she did to make the photos sepia and/or black and white, which totally rocks!) After the wedding, Oona was more than willing to talk me through all the album options, and change things on pictage (such as adding a different cover picture, or putting a particular picture up in sepia), sometimes even as we were speaking on the phone! I would highly recommend Oona to anyone who is interested in any sort of professional photography. Matt Ruhlen

Oona was a dream photogrpaher! Refered to her by a friend, we were immediately impressed by her friendliness, professionalism, wedding-day-know-how, and her flexibility. She really took time to get to know us individually and as a couple, and brought out our story in our wedding day. The photographs are stunning, and Oona does an amazing job of capturing the joyful emotions, and the excitement of the day. Thank you, Oona, for making our special day so beautiful to remember in photographs. Colleen & Greg Gause

Oona and her work is just AMAZING! I've never even written a review before, and who knows this may even be my last, but was inspired to write one for Oona as my husband and I were just so incredibly pleased with her work and her services that we felt it couldn't go unnoticed. We randomly found Oona while searching for photographers online and fell in love with her photography style and after we met with her, we soon were just as fond of her and her overall professionalism and demeanor. She was so calm and sweet and did a great job listening to the type of shots we were looking to capture on the day of our wedding and needless to say she nailed it. It was such a special day for not only my husband and I, but for our friends and family as well and she captured the exact emotions that I would want to remember forever whenever I think about our wedding day. She has a great eye for classic as well as new shots and on top of having superb photography skills, she is easy to work with, calm and something that really stood out to me was she did such a great job at not intruding on "the moment" like some photographers I've seen. She also created the most beautiful wedding album which to me was the best part! I would definitely recommend Oona to any of my friends and family! Greta Dawson

Oona was a blessing to find! She helped restore our faith in humanity, after having our first photographer take our deposit and run. Oona offered us a generous discount to help with the loss of our first deposit. She was very courteous and professional, she took the time to listen to what we wanted shot on our wedding day but also added in her creative genius. The photos she took turned out beautiful and are something we will treasure forever. We would use Oona again in a heartbeat and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a brilliant photographer. Corinne Weedon

As a Creative Director, and part-time "photographer" (used quotes because I am not a professional, but dabbled in photography for marketing purposes when I ran a marketing company), I am HIGHLY critical of photographers. My wedding photos were THE most important thing in the world to me. Although my fiancé and I set a very practical budget, the photographer was the one item I was willing to spend the most on, and was even willing to go over budget for the best photographer I could find. Fortunately, I found Oona. Not only was she one of the best photographers I found, but her pricing was more than reasonable and I did not have to go over budget. Photos are the one thing that you will take away from the wedding, besides your new spouse, that will be with you forever. 50 years from now, you will still have your photos, but won't remember the little things like the favors, or the invitations. At least, in my opinion. Oona was so amazing in that she made certain I got all of the shots I wanted, she worked such long hours to deliver on all of my wishes. Not only are my pictures incredibly beautiful and everything I could've hoped for, but all of the people that have seen my photos have said, and I quote "what an amazing photographer you had!". Oona is the best. You will not be disappointed! The Reaveys

Oona was so approachable and caring! Your photographer shares your most intimate moments with you on the biggest day of your life, we loved sharing it with her. Oona was warm and assertive when needed. She knew when to step back and when to guide us. She really listens and helps bring the vision to life. The wedding album she offers was amazing and told the story of our day superbly. She responds timely to emails and texts and makes you feel and look like a million bucks! Choosing her will be a wise choice and a fun one! Cherina Gapp

Oona is absolutely AMAZING! We have used her for family photos several times and most recently our wedding. She made us feel at ease from beginning to end. She is friendly, genuine and professional, but most importantly she loves what she does and it shows through her work! Her photos capture the moment and emotions perfectly. I really can't say enough about her. I just can't wait to have her take out photos again! Sybil Johnson

My husband and I got married in Las Vegas and had a small reception at home with our friends and family when we got back home. I called around to try to find a photographer that would photograph just the reception and all said that since it wasn't a full wedding, they wouldn't do it. When I reached out to Oona, she was more than happy to accommodate our request. She photographed our reception at Narrows Brewing Co. in University Place, WA, and made us feel just as special as any other bride and groom. She took her time taking our portraits, family pictures, and some candid shots. She was a pleasure to work with and very professional. Our pictures came back in a timely manner and we loved all of them! If I ever need professional pictures again, Oona will be the first photographer I’ll call! Edna Abalahin

Oona is an amazing photographer. I can't recommend her enough! She has a unique eye for photography and captures beautiful pictures. She is also very accommodating as a wedding vendor. I really appreciated how she responded to each email or phone call very quickly. In addition, when I told her I wanted autumn engagement pictures (and the only good picture day happened to be a day she already had a wedding booked), she arranged her schedule to accommodate both myself and the other bride. It was a long day for her, but I really appreciated her willingness to make time for me. Oona is absolutely wonderful and you won't regret you decision! The Caylors

Oona as well as her work was absolutely PHENOMENAL! She did both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. She worked around our schedules for our engagement pics even though at the time she was about to have a baby! And for the actual wedding we did not have to worry about a thing with her! She was reliable, on time, she was very helpful with the timeline for the day and she went above and beyond and in addition to the major events even photographed the little things that made such a difference. She was EVERYWHERE and the funny thing was I didn't even know she was there until later seeing the pictures! She does the best job captivating everything! I would HIGHLY recommend her!! Crystal LaPorte

Oona was amazing! She took beautiful pictures and captured special moments without being intrusive or distracting. Her warm, friendly personality put everybody at ease. Highly recommend! Meredith Marsh

Oona was AMAZING. Our photos are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. She was awesome every step of the way (dealing with my millions of emails and even helped me pick the ceremony time based on how the sunlight would be). She was so calm and relaxed on the day of, and did not miss a moment I would have wanted captured. I recommend her to everyone! Lindsey Nolan

We were lucky enough to snag Oona as the photographer for our destination wedding. There are many things to worry about when you're planning a wedding from a distance but Oona wasn't one of them. She was professional and confident and her relaxed personality put me at ease. We had an amazing experience and each time we look at our photos we find something new to love. Amelia Palmer

I could not have chosen a better photographer for my June wedding!! Oona was so sweet and extremely professional. We were looking for a photojournalistic style and she really came through. We had our wedding ceremony in the forest and she did wonders with the sunlight coming through the trees. My parents and in-laws were impressed with the quality - far better than they've seen before at any other wedding! I'm having a blast putting together my wedding photobook - so many perfect moments captured :) Thank you Oona!! Stephanie Stuber

Oona was wonderful to work with for both our engagement and wedding photos. We had an initial meeting to discuss our vision for our photos, and I felt that Oona really listed to what we were looking for. We did a mix of portraits and "capture the moment" photos. For our engagement photos, we had two locations and an outfit change. We even brought our dog! For our wedding photos, Oona was there for almost 12 hours, working tirelessly to photograph all the details. I love the creativity she put into some of the photos. Her experience was invaluable to her ability to capture the excitement and joy we felt that day. In short, she is amazing!! Jenny Ling

Oona was simply, awesome. She killed it every step of the way. Oona had an amazing way of documenting our day as it naturally unfolded, being there when we wanted a specific shot, and giving guidance when we had need for creative inspiration. We have and will continue to recommend her to friends and family. Thanks Oona! The Palmers

I found Oona Copperhill through the knot and I must say it was the best money we spent on our entire wedding. When my husband chose for us to get married at the Seattle museum of flight neither of us realized how much extra work it would be to make sure our wedding was picture perfect since we live in Canada. Oona was completely reliable, she listened to what I wanted and understood what we considered to be the most important things to capture that day. Oona was invisible at our wedding and as a result she was able to preserve people in their most candid moments. Her work is breath taking and moved me to tears. She has helped me to see my wedding day in a new light that I wasn't experiencing at the time. I have received countless compliments on her work that day as well as on our finished photos. I would hire her again and again. Amy Schilling

I hired Oona as my photographer because I saw her work on my friend's wedding and was impressed. When she took our engagement and wedding photos I was thrilled with the results. Oona is truly talented. She will take the frame-worthy photos you dream about. Photos that will adorn your house for decades. She will immortalize the fleeting moments that make your wedding-day memories magic. Because we loved her work so much, we hired her for our pregnancy, and newborn/family pics two times over. Not to mention she did two other of my friends weddings via my referral. They loved her work as well. Not only does Oona have magic in her camera - she is great to work with. The photo sessions are fun and she goes out of her way to make sure you get the results and images you want. Highly recommended. Jennifer Rogers

Oona shot my wedding in the fall of 2013 and did an excellent job capturing the emotion and the moments of the wedding. We had 240 people there and the venue was at a sprawling garden - meaning people spread out all over the place. Oona did a great job not only focusing on my husband and I, but also capturing wonderful shots of family and friends. You can definitely feel the emotion of the day in every photo. I definitely recommend Oona for any photography needs. Kate Price

Oona Was wonderful! Not only did she take our wedding photos, but she also took our engagement photos. Each photo she took looked amazing, and when we received them, we couldn't of been happier. During the ceremony and reception without anyone even noticing her, she seemed to capture the entire day for us to look back on. We have had many friends use other photographers for their weddings and every time we have walked away thinking our photos are vastly superior to all other vendors. We couldn't of been happier! Alex Vague

My husband and I had Oona take our engagement photos about two years ago. We went to three different locations in order to get the right shots, and ended up with tons of great photos! Oona also did our wedding photos in July of 2011. The day of the wedding Oona was calm and collected, and extremely professional. Our photos were gorgeous and our wedding album was perfect! Following our wedding, Oona has taken professional head shots for my law firm and also took "family" photos of my husband and I, and our dog. Oona is a great photographer for all occasions, and someone you will want to use whenever you need a professional photographer. Kristal Cowger

Oona is, by far, the best wedding photographer that I have experienced. When I was planning our wedding, I spent hours looking at different photographer's websites and viewing their portfolios to find someone who took beautiful, fun and natural (not totally posed) photos. I loved Oona's photojournalist-style. Ever single engagement and wedding photo was stunning - the quality was perfect. She made sure everyone looked good - no bad or awkward angles. Her photos were a mixture of classic/elegant and creative! I've had so many compliments on those photos and I've recommended her to anyone I know who is getting married or who wants engagement or family photos. She was able to capture all of the important moments and expressions! I just can't say enough about how wonderful she is! Lauren Vague

We were so pleased with Oona, not just for our wedding photos, but for our engagement photos as well. She has an impeccable eye and captured the very best of us, our guests and each and every moment. She was EVERYWHERE catching things we missed ourselves. It was so fun to get both sets of photos back and see how Oona made our photos natural, fun and so spirit-filled. She is a true professional and we felt an instant rapport upon meeting her. She will deliver to your expectations and then some. We feel so lucky to have worked with her for our special day and we will undoubtedly use her for our family photo needs in the future. Summerlin Larsen

Oona did a fantastic job with both our engagement and wedding photos! My husband is not exactly the type who likes to spend hours getting his photo taken, but Oona is so calm and easy going that she made it fun and enjoyable for both of us. On top of it all our photos are stunning! The album she made us is so much more than we had even hoped for. I loved all our pictures so much that when I had to narrow them down to make the photo album I was still 100 pictures over. I emailed Oona and asked if I could be 100 picture over and just pay her the extra that it would cost for added pages. She was so accomodating and said that it would be no problem to add the extra pages. Our book is amazing and I like to show it to everyone that comes over to our house. I would highly recommend Oona! She is not only a wonderful photographer, but is a great person to have around on the day of your wedding :) Melanie Bishop

Our wedding day was the only day of the whole month that it poured rain, but she worked with us to find new ideas and locations for pictures. She was great with helping meet our budget and was so kind and sweet the whole day of the wedding. She truly is passionate about photography and capturing your day. Emmalyn Kirschenman

Oona is fabulous! She is so calm and collected all the time. She is flexible and cooperative and very easy-going. On our wedding day she was everywhere - taking hundreds of candids. I don't think she missed a thing. Although I have not seen our pictures yet, I have no doubt that I will love them. Oona is professional and affordable and I would highly recommend her! Kendra Buscetta

Oona is an incredible photographer. She made us feel so comfortable and captured our day beautifully. Go with Oona! Shanley Deal

Oona is one exceptionally talented woman! She takes the time to truly listen and get a feel for what you have in mind for your occasion ( a 2nd wedding in our case ), and then somehow just intuitively knows how to not only deliver, but exceed your expectations, giving you even more that you could have hoped for. Oona not only has superlative conception and creativity...she has a way of executing that talent, and capturing your dream without being intrusive. On top of all that she is a delightful, affable and engaging woman. Kate Swarner

We were so fortunate to have such a talented photographer capture our special day. Oona puts everyone at ease. Her photos are thoughtful and unlike other wedding photos I've seen before. I know we'll cherish our collection forever. Kate Caughey

Oona recently shot my wedding and it was amazing. I was extremely happy with the photos. She was able to capture everything throughout the night and gave us the ability to relive our wedding through her photos. I would recommend Oona to anyone. Thank you Oona!! Jessica Ellis

As soon as we met Oona we knew we wanted her to be the one capturing the moments of one of the most special days of our lives! She's kind, hard working, thoughtful and professional. We were instantly comfortable around her! She floated around our wedding effortlessly, I barely even noticed she was there, yet always there when I needed her to be. I have only seen the sneak peek photos so far, but I can say from what we've seen that my dreams of my wedding pictures have come true. It was important for me to capture the wedding as if looking in from outside and she did just that. Her point of view is so unique and beautiful, she really delivered an impeccable vision of our day. We couldn't be more happy. She will be our photographer for years to come! Kimberly Cox
