I received one of my very favorite wedding gifts: a little black box from Pizazz Photography containing two discs of all our wedding photos!! Upon receiving this exciting treasure, I proceeded to fall into some sort of black hole for the next several hours as I poured over the beauty and detail in each photograph. I couldn't tear myself away from the computer! Carole’s talent is overwhelmingly evident in every single picture she gave us... and there are hundreds!! She captured my wedding in a beautiful manner that not only reflected the style of the event, but also the love and relationship between my husband and me. Carole has allowed us to remember our wedding in a "picture perfect" way :) I'm sure it is different for every bride, but my wedding flew by and I felt like there were parts of it I didn't get to see or experience. When I started looking through our wedding photos I realized Carole had been there when I couldn't and had captured all the perfect moments of the night forever! Looking through her photos is like watching a story unfold... each picture carries so much emotion and reflects the intense beauty of a wedding. The pictures document such an amazing evening! To speak on Carole's professionalism, I could not have been more pleased with how helpful she was! We planned a wedding in Memphis from out-of-town, but Carole was easy to reach via email and easily calmed any nervousness I had about planning a destination wedding. She guided my husband and I through the process of preparing for wedding photos, and was there with every step of the way on the day of. She is kind, knowledgeable, patient, and creative! To close, I would highly recommend Pizazz Photography! Carole has creativity, and talent that culminate in her ability to capture images that disclose the true beauty of their subjects. She sees things through an artistic eye and looks for ways to highlight the natural splendor of things (as a bride, it was important to avoid those unflattering angles and double chins... :) and she did just that!). Carole is very aware of the fact that she is giving you a visual memory that will last forever, and she works hard to ensure you are happy about it forever :)
Lasting Expressions is an exceptional photography studio. To start, the staff is the most friendly, family orientated, professional group I have ever met. They are very kind and truly treat you like you are the most important person to have walked through their door. We go back from time to time when we visit the mall just to say hi and they always make us feel welcomed. We have had our maternity pictures and our sons infant pictures done in their studio. They have so many great ideas and props for pictures and even outfits that they can provide for the little ones. They aren't your typical boring portrait sit and smile studio. They have so many unique ideas that make every picture one of a kind and special. They were great with our son too. I know how hard it is to get a baby to take decent pictures but they knew just what to do. They took their time with us to make sure we got everything we wanted. After the photo shoot, they bring you to a viewing area where they show you a slide show of your pictures set to your favorite song. That alone was so special, it was hard not to have tears in you eyes seeing it. In fact, if I had to give one complaint, it would be that we had too many wonderful pictures to choose from! They have so many packages set to fit any budget. But to me, one of the greatest parts, you get to take your pictures with you- that day! They print them and cut them while you wait. That is huge for me too as in the past, I was always used to getting sheets of pictures that I had to cut apart which was always a mess. The pictures turned out so beautiful and looked like we paid a ton of money for them. It was so hard to believe we had them done at the mall. I highly recommend Lasting Expressions to anyone looking to get pictures done. You will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back many more times in the years to come. Please stop in and see them next time you are at Wolfchase. You won't be disappointed!
I was lucky enough to find Pizazz Photography on the Internet. Our pictures were the most important part of our wedding so we wanted to work with someone who captured each moment in a very special and unique way. Carole is very professional. Every time I emailed or called her, she always responded within 24 hours. Even if she was traveling or out of the office, she would send me a notification that while she couldn't talk right at that moment, she would get back with me as soon as possible; and she always did. She was very good at making my husband and I feel comfortable, which can be hard in a photo shoot. We asked for pictures that were posed as well as action/life shots and she did an amazing job capturing both. We also had specific requests regarding lighting, and again, she exceeded our expectations. The quality of her pictures was perfect. She was a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her. In addition, the second photographer she brought to cover our wedding in addition to herself was also wonderful to work with. I feel that her prices are competitive and for what you receive; her services are worth every penny. Your wedding is one of the most important moments of your life and you want to make sure that you have the perfect photographer there to capture every moment of your special day. Carole is amazing and I am thrilled to recommend her services. My husband complimented her work as well. Seeing as how most men do not always enjoy taking pictures quite as much as women do, the fact that he mentioned how much he enjoyed working with Carole (unsolicited) and was so glad she was our photographer says a lot about her abilities. I am so thankful that we were able to work with Pizazz Photography. If you are looking for a photographer who can capture your special moments, I highly recommend Carole Zelten, and Pizazz Photography. What a joy to work with and our wedding pictures are simply beautiful.
