I can’t say enough good things about Sam and Nick of Anorda Photography. I am a bit of a high maintenance customer and I picked the perfect professionals for my proposal. Sam is very communicative and quick to respond. She’s great at calming your nerves and fears and is super personable. You can tell she cares about you as a person when you speak with her and she makes your experience nothing but fun. They take some seriously good photos and have an eye for the best light/scenery. Hire Anorda with confidence, you’ll have a great experience!

JC Raulston arboretum wedding
Sam and Nick exceeded our expectations! They showed up on time, delivered hundreds of pictures, and even created a beautiful 8 minute video from our wedding day. My husband and I cry every time we watch the video and it is something we will cherish forever. They were both super easy to work with and definitely bring a laid-back energy to their style and approach (which is needed for high anxiety brides!). We definitely plan to use Sam and Nick again for any major life event photo shoots needed and recommend them 1,000%. THANK YOU ANORDA!
every time we watch the video"

Let me brag on our photographers. They did our engagement and wedding photos and neither day was what you’d consider ideal weather. For the engagement photos it rained and for our wedding, the fog was so thick that by the end of our time, we could barely see a few feet in front of us. Sam and Nick just rolled with it and were so good at making me and Andrew feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. To sum up: they are a great team who genuinely care about producing the product their client wants, they are very nice but also professional. You won't be disappointed!

Samantha and Nick are extremely personable. They did an outstanding job and exceeded my highest expectations for capturing the moment that I proposed to my girlfriend. They drove 2.5 hours to the site, got there an hour ahead of time to scope it out, and hid so that we could keep the surprise until the last moment. The photos that they took were outstanding and are very professional. Most importantly, they are good people. Hire them - you will be happy that you did.

I am blown away by my maternity photos. She captured our family so beautifully, and they are easily my favorite photos ever taken of all of us. I don’t know how I’ll narrow it down to which pictures we display, and what a wonderful problem to have! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. These memories will last a lifetime. My 2 year old still talks about how much fun this day was.

Every aspect of my experience with Anorda Photography was perfect. They are very punctual and professional with communication, and are very personable during your photoshoot. The images were excellent. They allow you to choose areas you would like to take pictures and poses of your choice. If you do not have a preference, they suggest great spots where you can capture the best lighting as well poses to capture emotion, resulting in the best pictures. They don't go overboard with their photo editing software. Your pictures will look very natural if that is the look you are looking for.
