Family Photography (Master Level)  For Luke & Katie A.

"We have had Kelly and MJ do the majority of our photos from Boudoir, Maternity and family photos. Our only regret is not knowing these two amazing photographers when we got married in 2013. Somehow MJ catches the most magical of moments and Kelly has such an eye for editing that the pictures really come to life. They are so beautiful that you couldn't imagine they could turn out so amazing in your wildest dreams! These two are our go to photographers in the twin cities and will continue to be until they get sick of us!!"

~Katie Albers (Client)

Wedding  Videography (Master Level) For Kaydee & Brad

"MJ and Kelly are a PLEASURE to work with!  We used MJ for our Wedding Highlight video and LOVE his work! From our initial meeting with MJ and Kelly, we knew that we had to work with Phoenix Memories! MJ made the video process on the wedding day so easy and I felt like he became a friend throughout the day! Everyone who came in contact with MJ at the wedding said how great he was. He was even helping me hold my boquet and wrangle people while we were getting ready! I would highly recommend using Phoenix Memories for your videography needs! They went above-and-beyond our expectations!" ~ Kaydee Ziemer (Bride)

I am so elated to be working with Phoenix Memories and can't wait to see their work from our wedding day!" ~ Carly Pederson (Bride)

2nd testimonial via Thumbtack: "We loved having Phoenix Memories to capture everything from our engagement to our wedding day. Through the whole time they have made us feel special and like a bride and groom should feel on their magical day. They got our engagement and wedding photos back quickly and efficiently. Kelly and MJ are a gem to work with and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a great experience and photos without the sky rocketing cost."  ~ Carly Pederson (Bride)
