That’s What She Said (& He Said)

Liz was so great and fun to work with! She was especially good with Gia. Even though she was only a few months old, she was able to get her attention and her eye contact. She came up with a beautiful location and got the most beautiful photos of my daughter and me that I’ll be thankful for always. Family photos with babies are not easy, but Liz somehow made it feel fun and effortless! Thanks, Liz!

My husband and I had such a great time having our wedding photos done by Liz. She friendly, flexible, and made our day even more exciting! She even had Dave, her husband, second shooting with her that day, so we got some great, varying perspectives on our big day. I would definitely hire her all over again for another event! Lovely person and awesome pictures! -Ellenie H.

Liz took our engagement photos and the pictures were amazing! She has such a unique perspective and a beautiful way of looking at the world around her. She was so fun and easy to work with and made us feel incredibly comfortable (which is super important when you’re taking pictures!). We can’t wait to have her take more photos of us in the future!

Liz is such a pleasure to work with. She took our family Christmas photos, and they turned out amazing. She was able to get the best shots of my family, including ones of my on-the-move daughter, which isn’t easy to do. I highly recommend her!

We had a great photo shoot with Elizabeth Lucht Photography! Liz is fun and has great ideas! It’s rare to find a photographer that can engage kids which she is good at, and she captured us in some great moments!

Liz’s presence is so natural. She has an ability to capture the sweetest moments that you didn’t even think about remembering…until you have them and are looking back, reminded how sweet that particular moment was. I love her photojournalistic style and the way her humor and tender heart shines through in the moments she documents. We are so thankful for the memories she has trapped in time for our family.

Working with Liz was refreshing and enjoyable! We are not the most photogenic family. However, Liz was able to capture incredible family moments that looked candid and natural. The whole photo shoot was efficient and effortless. I was impressed with her use of the natural lighting, her editing, and her timeliness with delivering the final product. Overall, the shoot was seamless and the photos were beautiful. Thank you, Liz!

I was so pleased to have Liz do our family photos! Her warm personality made all of us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She was great in capturing images of our 4-year-old daughter and had her smiling and dancing around immediately. Liz was prompt in getting the images sent to us – which we loved as soon as we saw them! Liz is a talented photographer and a gem to work with!

My husband and I had the privilege of working with Liz for our engagement pictures. She is so much fun to work with–making you feel as natural as possible, which makes for amazing photos! We have many of the images hanging on the walls in our house because she captured our love for each other so perfectly. We can not thank Elizabeth Lucht Photography enough!

Liz is simply wonderful. Absolutely amazing to work with and extremely easy to get along with! Liz was great with capturing every special moment of our wedding day! Truly fantastic work.

Liz is the best! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer! She’s so nice and makes us feel so comfortable, which I feel is one of the most important parts about taking pictures. We feel like ourselves with her, and it just feels like we’re all hanging out together. We have so many of her photos framed in our house, and they make me so happy! She’s creative, has a great eye, and takes both artsy/modern and traditional pictures, so you get it all! I highly recommend her. If you’re lucky enough to work with her, i promise you won’t be disappointed!

Elizabeth Lucht was an amazing photographer, I’m so glad we hired her for our Santa Barbara wedding. Her photos turned out spectacular, she is great with natural light and was perfect for our outdoor ceremony and photos.
 She is a professional and knows what she is doing – she made us feel comfortable and she captured all the special moments during our ceremony. She was super efficient getting all the bridal party and family photos we wanted so that we had enough time to go to part of our cocktail hour.
She was friendly, listened to our preferences, and took amazing photos –  exactly what we wanted. She was also available via phone and e-mail (we lived out of state) in the days/months leading up to the ceremony to answer all our questions. I think its the best money we spent on our wedding, we will treasure these photos for our whole lives. I would definitely recommend her.

Prior to having met Liz, we were not “family photo” people, in large part because it felt fancy and that I needed to have a mood board in mind before starting a shoot. Then on a whim, three years ago, I emailed Liz to see if she would shoot some photos of me and my husband and our then 2 year old son. She eagerly accepted and since that special time three years ago, has been at many a family gathering, documenting our lives with honest and tender expression that has perfectly capsulated our family. We treasure those photos so dearly, pasting them on our i-phone and desktop backgrounds all year round, creating photo albums for our young children to remember, and passing them on to various extended family members for them to enjoy as well. It has now become an annual tradition with Liz–not just for the obligatory Christmas card, but to me, more importantly Liz captures exactly what our family is like in that year in our lives, complete with snotty noses, attention-holding trucks along a sidewalk and stealing kisses with a husband I’m still in love with after 10 years. This year, she and Dave graciously drove to Long Beach all the way from Santa Barbara just to be with us for an hour of pictures, After our kids were spent, Dave so accommodatingly entertained both of them while Liz took a few photos of just my husband and me. It is truly a group effort, particularly with two little ones, but we look forward to it every year. For what I consider to be a very reasonable price and quick turn around time, we are continually pleased with the pictures we receive year after year, and event after event. And the friendship we have gained in return has been priceless, to boot!

Liz was such a pleasure to work with. We used her for a four-generation shoot, and we got some beautiful shots that we will treasure forever! She is so easy going and put us totally at ease during our photo shoot. Liz is wonderful with people of all ages – from my 85 year old grandmother, to my not quite 2 year old daughter. She “gets” little people and was able to make my toddler feel comfortable in front of the camera, which is a feat. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

Time to make some memories!

I’d love to hear your ideas and vision for the kinds of moments you’re wanting to freeze-frame. Once we do that, we can go right ahead and make them happen!
