We can’t say enough about these two awesome people. You can’t go wrong with them!!

Valerie and Michael are the absolute best at what they do. I couldn’t be happier with our elopement photos. What really set them apart from everyone else was how comfortable we felt with them from the first phone call and the fact that they truly cared that our wedding day was perfect. They listened to our very vague description of “we want to get married by a waterfall,” then got to know us as a couple, found out what was important to us, and the result was a beautiful elopement that felt like a fairy tale we were sharing with two friends who happened to be taking photos of us.

They found the perfect location for us (we were coming from out of town), recommended a hair/makeup artist that was out of this world, and helped us stay on track with every aspect of planning the event. They really made it effortless for us and made the planning process enjoyable.

Jessi & Jon

Every time I re-open my wedding photos I laugh, I cry, I feel like I am reliving our special day

Michael & Valerie were an absolute joy to work with, from sharing laughs, stories and champagne pre-wedding, to saving the day with a tide to go stick, to even pushing us outside of our comfort zones and capturing the MOST STUNNING couple photos ever (perhaps I’m biased, but damn).

You want your photographers to capture all the small, intimate moments, to help loosen people up and guide them into beautiful photos, but to also blend in to capture those beautiful candids and Wander Kings excelled in all of these areas. Michael and Valerie’s passion for photography is portrayed in every single photo, and the love they share for their work is so obvious. I highly recommend these two as they will only exceed your expectations, we cannot wait to use them again for all of our big family moments in the future.

love to you both

Wander Kings was so attentive, compassionate and flexible with all our changing information.

I’m not sure how I got so lucky! I found Wander Kings (Lynn & Michael) on Instagram and was immediately drawn to the photography style, magical, detailed and dreamy. They really know what they’re doing.

Fast forward to wedding day and they amazed me with how quickly they got myself, my husband and my family together to get all the shots that I had requested. I got sneak peeks from the wedding photos THE NEXT DAY, which made me cry tears of joy because everyone knows how fast your wedding day goes by and it was just so beautiful and special to see the photos and get them so quickly.

Our full gallery was sent to us a few weeks before we were supposed to get them and I can’t put into words how beautiful and special they are to me. I knew I was going to get back beautiful pictures but honestly Wander Kings exceeded my expectations. There were some small details in the photos that they captured intentionally that absolutely warmed my heart. Thank you Valerie & Michael you two are absolutely amazing.
