"Miranda and Joe shot our wedding this past December, as well as our engagement photos a few months earlier. They did an amazing job with both, doing more than we could have expected. Miranda and Joe were both very easy to work with, and my wife and I both really appreciated how much of an effort they made to get to know us and our families. Prior to both our engagement shoot and wedding day, they reached out to us several times to get to know us, listen to details of our wedding day, and even help us plan the timeline for the day (which was extremely helpful). On our wedding day, they kept us both at ease. They arrived early to get ready, and even took some photos of our venue ahead of time. They did a great job of getting every photo we mentioned wanting (even outside in Wisconsin winter) and got a few of our favorites that we did not think of beforehand. Beyond just taking photos, they impressed everyone by doing things like bringing my parents hymnals when they realized they didn’t have any during the service. We got our photos back very quickly after the wedding. The gallery was easy to use for our digital photos and the printed photos looked great too."
"Miranda & Joe captured our wedding day better than we could have ever imagined. The final product of our wedding video details the most memorable moments of our day, and we love that they were able to catch things that Mike and I didn't even know were happening. Our video is perfectly crafted, includes the most intimate of details, and shows a side of our day that we always hoped to remember. The quality of the film is unparalleled, the video and audio are perfectly blended, and we are incredibly impressed by their craftsmanship and the way they seemingly pieced every moment together so effortlessly. Miranda & Joe truly helped our dreams come true by creating an absolute fairy tale video, and we also have to thank them for their moral support. During our wedding day, the pair provided so much comfort, support, laughs, and direction while remaining incredibly professional. They displayed the perfect balance of friendship (yes, we consider them friends now) and professionalism that we needed that day. There is absolutely nothing more we could have hoped for from Simply Finn. They are true professionals in their field and have clearly perfected their craft. Their passion is clear, and it made them a joy to work with. We 10/10 recommend this team for both videography and photography, and will absolutely be partnering with them again in the future."
“TLDR: Simply Finn is amazing and will blow you away with documenting and capturing your love story the way YOU want to remember it. Went above and beyond our expectations Twice! We found Simply Finn through the Knot after we decided to change from a friend photographer. We wanted someone who we could trust to create the treasure chest of memories, and document it the way we wanted to remember our special day. From the very first hello, it felt like we had known them forever and we fell in love with Simply Finn’s passion for telling our stories. Leading up to our wedding, Miranda asked all the right questions to help us shape our perfect day! Both Miranda and her partner are so relatable, could make us laugh, and are the kind of people you just want to sit down and have a cup of coffee with. Simply Finn did a great job of taking our wild idea of doing wedding photos at Kwik Trip and just ran with it! (Someone seriously needs to do Culver’s next) On the day of the wedding Miranda and her partner Joe were beyond professional, and you could barely tell they were there, however they captured every moment perfectly and truly blew us away! Miranda has such a calm but assertive personality which makes her perfect for commanding a giant family into several family portraits. They truly went above and beyond our expectations. Our photos arrived within a couple of weeks after our wedding! Our gallery arrived much sooner than expected, and it arrived the day before I started an internship, and I was living 4 hours away from my new husband. Let’s just say I was very tired for my first day of my internship. We were so in love with our gallery and I wanted to order every single photo! We were able to meet up with them again for a 1 year anniversary shoot, and once again, Miranda did a spectacular job with capturing our love. I’m going to be so proud showing our children our photos one day. I would invest in Simply Finn all over again! One of the best investments we made from our special day.”
“I literally can not even put into words all of the emotions we’re feeling looking through our wedding pictures. We are so excited and grateful that Simply Finn was able to perfectly capture every moment of our day. Every smile, every tear, every hug. Everything. Looking at the pictures, we were able to relive the whole day. They delivered everything that we hoped for and more. They exceeded expectations. A handful of our guests commented about how Miranda and Joe were everywhere all the time, capturing everything. “Like hawks” they said. Since day one, they helped this process go as smoothly as possible, even through my breakdowns. We clicked right away during our initial zoom call and that made things much easier. Miranda and Joe made us feel 100% comfortable which also made it feel easy and natural to be genuine around them. We had so much fun working with Simply Finn and we can not thank them enough.”
“Miranda and Joe are the best. The whole experience was easy, wonderful, and so natural -- you can tell everything they do, from getting to know us through a Facetime call to meeting them on our wedding day but feeling totally comfortable, is intentional and authentic. Their photographs have us laughing, crying, and so so grateful for the beautiful moments they've captured of us, our friends, our family, and the stunning venue! We can relive the day over and over again and we could not recommend them enough.”
