Penelope is just great. She was referred to me by a photographer who was referred to me by a friend, so in the end, I was kind of basing my decision on her website alone. Which is phenomenal! She went above and beyond by traveling over 3 hrs to our destination wedding. I didn’t meet Penelope until the morning of our wedding and only after 20min of shooting with her I could’ve cried with happiness. Her emails leading up to the wedding were so helpful and she even provided a guided timeline for the entire day. Although we booked her over 9 months in advance her communication skills were outstanding and she answered all our questions and which gave us peace of mind. Once she told me what she had in mind I knew our wedding photos would be unique and memorable but they were so much more than that. She captured such an intimate and tear-worthy moment the first time my husband saw me on my wedding day. If I had four words to describe Penelope L’amore: Professional, talented, kind and patient.

Working with Penny was such a wonderful experience! It really felt like a collaboration. She has such a passion and creativity for what she does and that shows from the first reach out, down to the wedding and beyond. She encouraged us to share what was special to us, and any thoughts or ideas were encouraged and then thoughtfully incorporated into our pre-wedding and wedding day photos. When we didn't have strong preferences she brought customized suggestions for poses and moments that we are now so happy to have as part of our memories! There can be plenty of stress during the wedding planning journey, so it felt amazing to have a wonderful photographer on board who made that aspect so smooth!
CRYSTAL + OSMAR Austin Texas
Thanks to Penny we are able to experience our wedding day every time we look through the beautiful photos she captured. Even the moments we weren't able to catch on our actual wedding day. Both my Huband and I are camera shy, but Penny made us both feel like we've known her all our lives. We were able to start our first day as husband and wife together without any worries and completely stuck in the moment of getting to live the rest of our days with each other! Which was possible thanks to the professionalism and positive attitude Penny displayed throughout the day, and especially during the family photos. She knew how to make everyone feel comfortable and handle any situation we threw at her. We are truly happy with her hard work, and support we received throughout our engagement, and wedding day. As well as the beautiful memories we get to keep!

"Penelope made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable. We are a couple of introverts, but Penelope helped us get out of our shell and made the experience fun. We had our pictures in no time and they were amazing!"
KEANE + PHEOBE Austin, TX
"My husband and I found Penelope for our recent engagement and wedding. We loved her work. She was able to meet with us to talk at length about what our vision was. Very friendly. We appreciated her quality of work. It was very high end for an affordable price. Especially for a new couple looking to save when we can without compromising."
MARCOS + MELISSA San Antonio, TX
"We chose Penelope from the referral of another photographer that wasn't available for our wedding date. We are so glad Penelope worked with us. She was very informative and gave many tips. We worked in the summer heat for my bridal photos and they came out flawless! I broke a sweat and it didn't even show. I could've been more relaxed but I was nervous so I would advise trying to stay relaxed during the session, you will smile a lot and hold your pose a lot and that is expected but just know ahead of time. I think I should've had a drink to relax, but I did well either way. Have some help, you can not shoot your bridal photos alone w photographer. Penelope also with the help of a second shooter did an AMAZING job on my wedding photos. I have received so many compliments. She was able to capture moments that I might have missed due to getting ready etc. I couldn't be at every spot at the same time so when I saw my gallery I felt like she took me to those moments I missed. The lighting was not overkilled, it was perfect! I don't remember saying much to her after the reception started but we had or she had a plan and carried it out gracefully. The photos show it all. I would highly recommend her and take a peek at her photo gallery. She is amazing, that's all that goes through my head when I look at my photos!

KOLA + KASSIE Destin/Fort Walton, Florida
"We were so completely happy working with Penny. She knew exactly what she was doing, she was sure to find out what I wanted and made it happen! Very organized, which you need on the wedding day because it all feels crazy, but the pictures went so smooth. As for the pictures... phenomenal! They were the pictures you see online and want! Everyone who has seen them absolutely raved about them. I couldn't have been happier. I highly recommend her."
JESSY + PERLA Austin, Texas
"I was referred to her by a friend of mine who was also a bride and used Penelope for her wedding photography. I was very impressed by her reviews and photos on Instagram so I decided to reach out to Penelope. She was very speedy in responding to me. I should also note that I was planning this wedding from out of state, with a 5 hour time difference, and Penelope was very accommodating to that as well. Our first consultation was through Skype, but once I was in town we met in person. One of my favorite things is that she is very organized and will work out a wedding timeline with you down to the minute, based on the shots that will be taken. It was comforting to see how very detailed she is and takes the time to communicate those details. With the package that I got, I also got to do a Bridal shoot which was great because I was able to see how we worked together and got along. She is amazing in all of her work, let me just say that. On the day of the wedding, she captured all of the best moments. I am very into candid shots, and she made sure that's what we got. I just received the link to our wedding photos and what I mostly saw was laughter and happy tears, what better way to remember our special day? I was very happy with her dedication and ability to "capture the moment"."

"Penelope did an amazing job on my engagement photos. She had a lot of great ideas and really took account the surroundings. She took the ideas I had and helped recreate them with her own twist. I am a very awkward photo taker but she was patient and made me feel at ease. I had seen her work and loved her style and attention to details. I would love to work with her again!"
MIKE + JAMIE Anchorage, Alaska
"Penelope photographed my wedding in January 2016. The pictures turned out beautiful. She gave us a lot of insight into the wedding procession and helped us set a schedule that was easy to follow. She gave us beautiful pictures and stayed a well into the evening giving us awesome reception pictures as well. She is very detailed and organized. Penelope has given us photos that we will cherish for a lifetime! She did an amazing job! I highly recommend her services to anybody who is looking for a photographer!.."
COLLIN + JOYCE Austin, TX
"We had a great time working with Penny. She was helpful and available with any questions or creative suggestions for our engagement photo shoot. She was more than willing to carry out our vision but at the same time, she provided her creative and professional expertise when we needed it. She was so patient and sweet! She arrived early to our engagement shoot location to scout out the best locations. She was prompt. We are by no means professional models so she had such encouraging feedback for us during our shoot which helped us to feel less awkward and we were able to let loose some more and just have fun. She even had a playlist playing on her iPhone while we were doing some dancing poses! We appreciated how timely she had our shots ready since we used a couple of them for our wedding invitations. She would send us a shot here and there as she worked on them which got us super excited. I'm ecstatic about working with her for our future wedding day photographs. Highly recommend the artistry and professionalism of Penelope L'amore Photography!"
HUGO + KALLI Denton, TX
"We hired Penelope for our wedding pictures. She did really well despite the limited time frame we gave her to work with us. All the pictures look very professional. She Skype called us before the day of the photo-shoot to set everything up.
This was a very nice touch to her services because she makes sure everything is right and how we want it to be.
While in the ceremony, she captured the essence of the celebration. Interestingly we may not have noticed her much during the event but even then she managed to photograph all the important moments we wanted for our album.
She has professional equipment and she’ll tell you how to pose for pictures that way you always look good.
If you want a professional photographer with a lot of experience and really good photography skills there’s no doubt she does a great job."
SHANE + MADI Austin, TX
"I found Penelope through Instagram, and thank goodness!!! She was amazing, she was so helpful from the beginning with all our questions (even ones we didn't know we had). We discussed the possibility of sparklers as an exit, and she came up this amazing picture of my husband and I surrounded by them. She was so helpful meeting with us before the wedding to go over everything we wanted. She also met us another time at the venue and really helped me come up with other ideas for the ceremony and reception. She was very gracious with our pastor and family! The pictures are better than we could have ever asked and we are so grateful she was able to capture these moments we will cherish forever!!"
AUBREY Eagle River, Alaska
"Working with Penny was amazing, to say the least! She made me feel comfortable and natural. She knew how to give me pointers and tips when I needed a little help with posing. And the portraits that she shot turned out BEAUTIFUL! Every time I look at them I can't believe that those pictures are me! I can't say enough about how happy I am! How she captured me, my personality, and my feelings in her lens is beautiful. And the shots of me and my son bring me to tears! I highly recommend Penny and her camera! She is easy to communicate with, is lovely to work with, and is an artist with a camera."
JEREMY + ELIZABETH Austin, TX
"Her gorgeous photos speak for themselves! Penelope was a delight to work with and we couldn't have been happier with both our engagement and wedding photos. She was great at both listening to our feedback as well as giving us guidance for posing, ideas, and being aware of lighting. I think I was most impressed at her ability to capture so many different kinds of photos on our wedding day. She got everything from really classy, timeless looking shots, to the fun and lively reception, to loving, intimate photos at our first look. Highly highly recommend her!" -Jeremy
"Working with Penny was a dream! She captured beautiful moments for both our engagement pictures and our wedding day. The photos lay out a story that I love to look through.

She listened to us and came up with some really cool ideas. Whenever friends comment on my wedding, they always mention how great our photos turned out. I just love them!"

"Penelope was the photographer for my friend's wedding. She did an outstanding job! I came to do the hair and makeup, and when she was taking pictures during the run thru and the day of, she was amazing! She took many beautiful shots of the bride and the girls. Also, she was very considerate of personal space of everyone involved and our work space! I got to see the pictures afterward, and I absolutely love them! Her work is creative and fantastic. She was even nice enough to send me some for my portfolio. I highly recommend her and her work. Not only is her work great, but she's a lovely lady as well! You will absolutely not regret using her as your photographer on your special day."
LARAE Orlando, FL
"As the mother of the bride, I was just wanting some nice wedding photos. Penny exceeded my expectations. She had so many creative and beautiful shots prepared. She took beautiful location shots in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, as well as inside and outside the reception location which was a beautiful museum. She had many ideas also for posing the couple. and wedding party. She was also very efficient because she knew what shots she wanted. We did not spend excessive amounts of time waiting for shots to be prepared or for her to decide what to do. The end results of the photos were amazing. I am so happy that we chose Penny to be our photographer and highly recommend her."
