Clients Thoughts

Spencer & Emily MCClelland

My wife and I got married September 7 of this year.

Before finding a photographer, we went to various wedding expos to see what everyone had to offer. When we came across Dee and WayItWas Photography, we were instantly impressed. Lots of selection, all in one services (photos, guest book, save the dates, invites, and thank you cards), and really good prices.

The pictures we've got so far are all fantastic and really capture the moment.

Don't be bother with others providing okay services for thousands of dollars more.

You'll find high quality, friendly service, and great prices with WayItWas Photography.

Dee was amazing to work with. She did our engagement and wedding photos and I love each and every picture! My husband and I have never had professional photos done before and Dee made us feel very comfortable and we also had fun. She is very creative and I highly recommend her if you want unique and beautiful photos that you will love!


Amanda Fallowfield,

Dee was absolutely amazing! We had her do our engagement photos as well as our wedding day. She is very easy to work with, super creative and extremely talented. I could not be happier with the photos she took for us. We have such great photos to look back on and remember our special day. Thank you so much Dee!!

Jenny-Lee Rusnak,

Wonderful, beautiful work!
Dee is so great to work with! Unfortunately in December I had a photo fail with another photographer which left me really upset ( poor photos, out my money and over all a rude experience)I won a $150 gift card right after and booked Christmas photos with WayItWas photography. She was so patient with my fiesty girls. The pictures are fantastic and are forever in my daughter's baby book and Christmas ornaments.
Fast forward to April. Dee did the most amazing cake smash with my baby girl. She captured her sweetness, fiestyness and all her little chubby features. I got teary eyed looking at the pictures and am getting many developed into canvases. She did such amazing work and was super quick!
We did reschedule three times due to weather, ( unsafe traveling conditions) which is out of everyone's control. She is super talented, great to work with and incredibly generous! I look forward to coming back for other milestones!

Kirsty McGuigan,

Dee is an amazing photographer!!! She takes complete pride in her work which shows not only during the time that she is taking the photos but the photos themselves!!! My husband and I had a wonderful time celebrating with her for 3 incredible events of our pregnancy; the gender reveal, a maternity session and our wee guy's newborn session!!! She has given us very special memories to cherish for a lifetime :)
We would absolutely recommend Dee for any and every event that you could possibly want to capture!

Pina Kebezes-Friis,

My Husband and I have been remiss in reviewing Way it Was Photography earlier. In short, Deirdre was amazing, the best creative director in capturing our day. Her eye for photography is inexplicable. The pictures speak for themselves. Truly AMAZING! We were exceptionally pleased with the results of our pictures. We plan to use her again for other occasions. My husband and I would without hesitation recommend her as your professional photographer. She will not disappoint.

Mark & Joanne Kunkel,

Everyone involved in the wedding photos loved Deirdre and thought she was really fun and professional! I have seen some of our wedding photos and they look amazing. Very excited to see the rest! I would definitely recommend WayItWas Photography. You won't be disappointed!

Josh & April Beckett,

From the second we met Dee she made us feel 100% comfortable. Which is really important to us because we have never had professional photos taken before. When she showed us all of her work we were absolutely blown away. We knew right away that she was the one to capture our special day! Dee recommended an absolutely beautiful spot for our engagement photos which was 100% our style! She guided us through the session and was extremely patient with us. Her creativity is incredible. Her talent is beyond words. She sees beauty and potential in everything. When our wedding came she captured every single moment important to us and more! Things i wouldn't have thought of she captured! I cannot tell you how many people came up to me that day and said "Wow that photo is going to be amazing!" "Where did you find her?" My sister even said "I wish i had you do my wedding!" Everyone was blown away by her. She saw so many opportunities that night and quickly grabbed us for photos. Amazing sunsets and even us kissing under a double rainbow. We are so fortunate to have had someone so passionate about her work do our wedding because it truly came across in every photo. Dee was very flexible and understanding about our budget. We were also shocked to receive our photos back so soon! I will recommend Dee to anyone i know and will be using her for any upcoming photo sessions!

Jon & Marie Banas,

December 31 2014. Ours were a small intimate service at a chapel. Previously, I had met with a couple local photographers and they seemed not to be too interested in photographing a small wedding. (18 guests) When I went for my interview with this photographer ( I had seen this photographer's work through a friend and was impressed with her work). Our first meeting, I found her to be quite personable and she put me at ease with her positive friendly suggestions and attitude. She told me, she enjoyed capturing those special moments between the bride and groom and surrounding circumstances. She reassured me that a small wedding with a few people was just as unique and important compared to a wedding with several hundred people. That sold me there. When I started fretting about which package to choose, she also suggested I could build my own package, that she liked to keep it open to her clients, that they also had that option, and not feeling obligated to tie into just one package. So that is what we did.
I loved the idea of having thank you cards made for my guests with a photo of my husband and myself. I saw the proofs , Ms. Mercier said they were not done, there was to be some editing, that she would not send out until she was satisfied with the photos, though through my eyes I thought they all looked quite good. I look forward to seeing my wedding album. She is very accommodating , pricing is quite reasonable, I loved her quiet demeanor, not in your face trying to push packages that cost more or you do not need. She really does care about her clients needs and looking at her portfolio's, you can see her passion in photography. My guests commented on how friendly she was and put them at ease when she captured photos of them. Very professional.

Kimberly Upshaw,

The Wedding pictures that were taken for my friends wedding were AMAZING. She did such a great job. Make me want to get married again, just so I can have the pictures:) There were so many different poses, and everyone took my breath away, they just kept getting better and better. Definitely recommend for any occasion you want to memorialize.

Shannon Jenkins,

Dee is an absolute inspiration.
She can capture any beautiful image she wants.
My husband and I have worked with her twice now, and definitely plan on utilizing that darling brain of hers in the near future.
She is super fun, creative and just a joy to be around!!

Lesa Hooper,

We loved working with Deirdre!!! Wayitwas photography did our wedding and engagement photos and they are absolutely gorgeous. Deirdre's "out of the box" way of thinking comes across in the photos and you always have something unique. Not just the regular posed photos that you always see. Her creativity is outstanding, and she is sooo much fun to work with. We definitely recommend Wayitwas Photography to everyone

Marianne Armstrong,

I have worked with Dee, Owner and Photographer for WayItWas Photography since before she started this company. Dee is flexible, creative, open-minded, and passionate. She goes out of her way to make her clients feel comfortable in front of the camera whether it be a glamour shoot or a boudoir. She takes her clients' opinions, suggestions, and interests seriously as her goal is to please her clients. I would recommend anyone and everyone to utilize WayItWas Photography to capture their life's precious moments!

Lace Belina,

I’ve had the pleasure of working several times with Dee. Both as her subject as well as working with her professionally. Every single experience has been an amazing one. As a subject for her glam and halloween shoots, she not only made me feel comfortable and relaxed, but also like a beauty. As a professional makeup artist, she has consistently and perfectly, represented the image i had in mind, and then some. Working with Deirdre in both mediums has not only been a pleasure but an honor.

Danielle Farkas,

Dee is an amazing photographer!! She had so many unique and creative ideas for both our engagement and wedding photos. She is super friendly and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed during the photos which made the sessions enjoyable. We look forward to working with her again in the future!

Christina Buszik,

Katie Paveo,

Dee is an incredible photographer! She captured our wedding day and my bridal shower in such a beautiful way. Dee had so many amazing ideas for angles, poses and backgrounds. She is a true professional and obviously loves what she does. I would recommend WayItWas Photography to anyone looking for a quality and unique experience.
