Ann Marie at Myrtle Creative Co. helped create an amazing elopement day…
From our first meeting with Ann Marie we knew she was the adventure elopement photographer for us. Her organizational skills were as impressive as photographs of other weddings captured through her lens. We really enjoyed the planning process with Ann Marie, she provided a detailed itinerary, recommendations for other vendors and took the time to get to know us, our likes, dislikes, hobbies and things we enjoy. This made the wedding day an absolute blast. On our elopement day there was not a time during the day that we felt stressed or uncomfortable, it was actually fun because we were doing activities that we enjoy and hanging out with our now friend, Ann Marie.
We have had so many people, friends, family, strangers fawn, gush, been in awe, impressed with the depth and breadth of our photography. The picture slide show from Myrtle Creative Co. we shared at our elopement luncheon was the hit of the lunch. So many people would stop a conversation to point out their favorite picture. The lanterns and her use of them along with the setting sun and rising moon were the most commented photos.
One of the most important things about the entire day, during the ceremony, neither Tom or myself can recall seeing Ann Marie taking any pictures, never heard the camera, she was so stealthy and secret it was amazing to see the pictures shared and never remember Ann Marie being there to take them.
We highly recommend Myrtle Creative Co. for any of your photography needs: Elopements, Weddings, engagement, family photos, etc.

If you are looking for a PRO, look no further! Ann Marie is the best of the best, and I’m so lucky we found her. She took our wedding photos, and they turned out amazing! I’ve never met someone so fun, kind, and creative. This was the first time my husband and I had taken professional photos together, and she made us feel so comfortable. I can’t wait to book another session with Ann Marie. Go check out her Instagram at @myrtlecreativeco if you haven’t already! Her work speaks for itself!

Akshar + Kristen

If I could give 10 stars I would. Ann is extremely professional, attentive, communicates promptly and delivers a FANTASTIC product! We received our sneak peak and we are enamored with the results! She captured the best moments, we found our photos of ourselves flattering and our ornery puppies' well behaved moments were captured beautifully. She brightened our special day and we had an unforgettable experience that we wouldn't want any other way!

Tory + Patty

Planning a wedding, no matter how big or small is a huge undertaking. My husband and I were beyond lucky to have Ann by our side in the planning process and for our special day. Not only did Ann perfectly capture the mood and romantic vibe we were hoping for in our photos, but she also spent time getting to know us as a couple and helped us brainstorm ideas to make our big day special and more personalized to who we are as a couple.

My husband and I loved exploring Hug Point and Oswald West with Ann. She is a wealth of knowledge and we learned a ton about the area’s history and fauna which only further built on our experience.

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Ann / Myrtle creative Co.

Thank you Ann for being the beautiful soul you are. It is not everyday you meet someone who is so clearly doing what they were put on this earth to do. Thank you for sharing your talents and presence with us during our wedding. We are so grateful you were by our side throughout this journey.

Christian + Aly

Ann Marie and Adam have been wonderful to work with in a difficult time. They were flexible when we had to postpone the original wedding to next year due to COVID, and even managed to fit us in when we decided to go ahead and elope this year. Ann Marie took incredibly gorgeous photos that I've been excited to share and went with the flow for a last minute location change for some extra photos that turned out PHENOMENAL. We can't wait to work with both Anne Marie and Adam next year for our rescheduled original celebration, and just know that we'll come away with even more stunning photos to treasure for years to come!

Do you want awe inspiring keepsakes to cherish and look back on after your wedding day has come and gone? Do you want photographers who will make you feel comfortable and respect your wishes? Then it's time to book with Myrtle Creative! My husband and I decided to choose Myrtle Creative for our wedding in February 2020 and we couldn't be happier with our choice! Photography was one of the most important aspects of our wedding day to us and so it was imperative we found competent photographers who listened to us and made us feel heard. Myrtle Creative achieved just that and more. They were professional and quick to respond to messages. They took the time to understand the "vibe" and "feel" we wanted for our wedding day. Myrtle Creative talked with us to ensure we had the coverage we needed and were thorough in guiding us in creating a list of photos we knew we wanted. They worked well with our other vendors, including our videographer. My husband and I also love that we have complete access to all of our photos including the freedom to do what we'd like with them. Myrtle Creative created a timeline that we actually ended up using as our official wedding timeline (was just as good as our coordinator's!). They were flexible, accommodating, and always available. They were beyond patient with us and our photos turned out exactly as we wanted them too. I love looking back on our wedding pictures. I highly recommend you contact Myrtle Creative to photograph your wedding! Thank You Myrtle Creative!
