“Lois was amazing! Contacted her through thumbtack to capture the moment I proposed to my fiancé, and she did not disappoint! The candids she got are gorgeous and we will cherish them forever! She did an engagement shoot with us after and made the whole experience fun and extremely memorable. If you’re looking for a great photographer, you’ve found her!”
