Debbie was fantastic to work with for our wedding. She made our more photo-nervous feel at ease and was always patient and courteous. She worked tirelessly for the whole day, making sure she captured every moment. Her artistic direction and feedback were great, before and during the wedding. Debbie was willing to work with some of our sillier requests, and had fun along with us. The preview image quality that she turned around in only a few days is fantastic, we can’t wait to see the rest of the album!

Where do I even start! Debbie Segreve was an amazing person to work with from the moment we reached out to her, through the wedding and after. Photography was the thing we were most nervous about going into wedding planning, because we knew what we wanted but weren’t sure we would be able to find the right person and also be able to afford them. From our first meeting with Debbie, she was so prepared, organized and professional.Leading up to the day of the wedding, Debbie was SO helpful! It’s clear that she’s done this before and she was so willing to help. Together we created a detailed timeline that helped us organize ourselves so much. On the day of the wedding we couldn’t have imagined anyone else being there with us. She was calm and collected and didn’t let anything shake her. It was exactly what we needed, and she was an absolute rock star! I don’t know how she was able to be all those different places seemingly at one time, but she captured every moment of our day so beautifully. She put us at ease and when there were hiccups, she didn’t let them throw her and it kept us calm too. Not only are the images we have of our wedding and engagement going to be keepsakes for the rest of our lives, we feel like we have made a friendship with Debbie that will continue even after the work on our wedding has finished. Debbie consistently went above and beyond and we are so grateful to her for all she did for us- we can’t recommend her enough! Not only is she amazingly talented, but she made sure to work within our budget and went out of her way to make sure we were feeling comfortable through all the stages of planning. The turn around time on our images was lightening fast, as well! To sum it up, if you want to hire a wedding photographer that is talented, professional, organized, and also one of the sweetest and friendliest people you’ll ever meet, look no further than Debbie Segreve!

A family member recommended Debbie Segreve after meeting her outside their church where she had been preparing for an upcoming wedding shoot. They were excited by her professionalism: scouting the church, looking for interesting angles and vantage points; but also by her amiable personality. After meeting Debbie we were confident we had found the perfect photographer. Not only did she have a wonderful portfolio, she seemed genuinely interested in the details of our relationship and our wedding. Each phone call or email she would enthusiastically check in on our wedding planning. We appreciated her attention to the private moments between us at our wedding. Our favorite moment was quickly leaving to take photos at sunset on a nearby lake. Her timing was perfect and we ended up with beautiful photos. Another moment she helped coordinate was our first look. We wanted something casual and not overly scripted. She arranged for us to see each other in a garden outside the church. It was simple but beautiful, and we were grateful for her ability to coordinate something on the fly which we hadn’t given much thought. From flowers and decorations to the architectural details, throughout the wedding Debbie took time to photograph all the elements which contributed to the atmosphere of our day. She also captured many special moments between our guests. One of the biggest advantages to working with Debbie is she develops a wedding timeline. She walked us through the day, from hair and makeup to cutting the cake. A shoot sheet was developed to organize all the formal photos we wanted with extended family members, and the appropriate amount of time was budgeted into our wedding timeline. Debbie’s personality throughout the wedding was charming and our wedding party felt very comfortable following her instructions during formal photos. Our photos capture all the elements of our wedding and create a beautiful catalogue of our day. We would highly recommend Debbie!

We loved working with Debbie! Our wedding pictures was in our “top 3” of most important things for our wedding. After our initial meeting with her, we knew that she was the photographer that we wanted to work with. It was immediately clear to us that she loves what she does and wanted to give us her best possible work. Throughout the process, she listened to what my husband and I envisioned for our wedding and our pictures. She gave us tips and thoughtful advice based on her previous experiences, but made it clear that this was our wedding and we should do what we wanted. She is extremely organized and is what I consider a “straight shooter.” Debbie worked with me to develop a timeline for the big day, ensuring that not only were we both on the same page, but also that we could also get in all the shots I wanted. On the actual day, she was awesome! Honestly, she was so easy to work with and our pictures came out stunning. So many people in my family have commented on how lovely and professional she was at the reception and how beautiful the proofs are – we cannot wait until we finish the album. I would highly recommend Debbie.

I am so happy we had Debbie photograph our wedding! We could not have been luckier to have been referred to her. From the first time we emailed and then had an initial meeting, she was so helpful and I could tell she had a genuine interest in making both our wedding day special and make the planning process stress free for us. She was great in calling or emailing in the lead-up to the wedding checking in with us and offering any guidance or advice. Before the wedding we planned a call where we walked through the timeline of the day and we gave her our “must have” list for the photos. I appreciated how much she wanted every detail so that everything would run smoothly. The day of the wedding she was just great! I am not huge on having photos taken, I tend to feel a little awkward but Debbie made me and my bridal party laugh and feel very natural. I have seen a lot of wedding photos that feel forced or are just a lot of the same poses/background but Debbie gave us a wide variety of shots. Everyone in the bridal party and even guests of the wedding told me how they really liked her and she was very creative with our photos. After the wedding we got a sample blog post very quickly and received our full portfolio that she sent on a jumpdrive sooner than I was expecting. The photos are all beautiful!!! I was so impressed with the way that she captured so many special moments, especially because beyond the posed/formal photos, I hardly noticed her and did not realize she was capturing these memories for us. I would recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a photographer who shows genuine interest in her clients and is a real professional. I truly could not be happier with her work!

Debbie has definitely found her niche in wedding photography. Through pre-wedding discussions it became very clear that not only is she comfortable working in the highly emotional setting of a wedding, but that she is very experienced in her field and well equipped to handle any challenges photographing a wedding may entail. Working with Debbie was absolutely wonderful. She personally went over with us what we were looking for in capturing our wedding and which shots were important to us. Debbie is able to add a personal element to a professional relationship through her understanding of the emotions a bride and groom are feeling leading up to their big day, and even on the day itself. She is understanding and attentive to the dynamics of family relationships and working with elderly family. She did a fantastic job working with my grandfather, who has alzheimer’s, and we were able to get family photos which I will cherish for my entire life. Not only was working with Debbie on a personal level wonderful, the photos she captured of our day can only be described as perfect! She was sure to capture every moment I could possibly want and the quality of her work is professional, high quality and downright impressive! I cannot thank Debbie enough for the beautiful photos and for the wonderful experience of working with her leading up to my wedding.

Words cannot express how much we absolutely LOVE Debbie and how thrilled we are that we found her! From the moment we met Debbie, we knew that she was the perfect match for us. She is so organized, knowledgeable, professional, and patient and we were at ease as soon as we began talking. We had Debbie shoot our engagement pictures and not only were the pictures amazing, we had such a great time with her and knew even more that our wedding pictures were going to be absolutely fabulous. I cried when I saw Debbie’s blog of many of our wedding pictures. She captured every part of the day and so many amazing details that I will treasure forever. The day goes by so quickly but these pictures will last a lifetime. I’m so appreciative that she photographed all the moments and emotions that I can always look back and remember what a very special day it was. I really can’t say enough about Debbie. She is extremely talented and creative. She is thorough and organized and I was at ease from the moment we met. She is patient, understanding and accommodating and just a truly wonderful person. We are beyond thrilled that we met Debbie and woukd highly recommend her to any couple looking for a truly amazing photographer.

Debbie was absolutely fabulous! My pictures came out way better than I expected. She was able to capture every moment of my special day. My husband and I were very impressed and we would absolutely use her again!

Selecting the right photographer was a huge part of the wedding planning process for me. It wasn’t entirely easy, because my fiance and I were on a budget that didn’t allow for a ton of wiggle room. I found Debbie through a Google search, because I was looking for a photographer that had shot at our venue, Old Sturbridge Village, before. I found her blog and immediately fell in love with her style. Debbie and I had a phone conversation first, and I knew she was the right fit for us. She loved the venue, knew all the nooks and crannies to photograph, and made professional suggestions while also allowing our personalities to shine through. She was able to work within the parameters of our finances, and her packages were extremely reasonable for the beautiful work that she does. We chose to do an engagement photo shoot down on the Cape, and Debbie was willing to travel to accommodate us and change plans when weather wasn’t on our side. We remained in contact as needed during the wedding planning process, and Debbie was always quick to respond to any questions that I had. Debbie was so accommodating with how we wanted our pictures done, and we made a great plan before the wedding day. On the day of, she was there early to scout out good spots for us, stayed in contact with my “point person” throughout the day, was flexible and easygoing when changes in our plan had to be made, and helped to make the first look and formal pictures run smoothly. She took us into the village for our private pictures, and found some really great spaces. Debbie was unobtrusive during the ceremony and reception, except for prearranged photos. Pictures showed up on the blog soon after the wedding, and OMG they were AMAZING! I knew Debbie’s work was fantastic, so that wasn’t surprising in any way, but she truly captured my husband and I exactly as we had hoped. We can’t wait to see the entire gallery!! We would gladly recommend Debbie to anyone who needs a photographer, hands down.

 We were very lucky to find Debbie. Even though we were on a tight budget, we were willing to spend a little extra on a photographer so we had great pictures to remind of us of such a wonderful day. We spoke with Debbie and knew that she was the one. She has a great personality and was easy to work with. And luckily for us, her prices are very reasonable for what she provides you. First we did a beautiful engagement shoot with Debbie, and we included our 2 dogs in the session. She worked great with our dogs and took some magical pictures. We were so happy we found her! Then for our wedding, she did many candid pictures and several were she directed our poses. She again worked with our 2 dogs, since they were part of the wedding party. I could not be happier with the way all the photos came out. She captured everyone’s personality and beauty. Debbie was flexible, she just worked around us. It was just wonderful working with her, I hope I can find some excuse to work with her again.

Great attention to detail! Was always just an email away and responsive in a timely manner. Very personable, professional, and interacted great with the wedding party, staff, and guests!

It was wonderful working with Debbie for the photography of our wedding. The initial meeting with her was great and I couldn’t wait to work with her. Our second meeting went smoothly as we were looking at locations for the actual ceremony. All of the email exchanges and phone calls were professional but easy going as well. The day of the wedding, it was so nice to have a laid back type of early afternoon and she was able to capture great moments. The whole day, she was fantastic and was able to get the shots that I wanted and she was also able to catch some that I didn’t know about.

Debbie was fantastic! My husband and I had really difficult schedules to work with, and Debbie had the patience to work with us! She was amazing and very discreet, paying attention to every detail. My husband and I were very lucky to have met her.

Neil and I loved working with Debbie. From the first moment we met her, we felt comfortable and in good hands. She is the ultimate professional and we would recommend her to anyone. Our wedding was in early February at Old Sturbridge Village and there was two feet of snow on the ground. Debbie knew we wanted outdoor photos and was up to the challenge. I don’t know how her fingers didn’t fall off but she stayed outside with us until we got all the shots we (and she) envisioned. Our photos will be with us forever and we are so glad we chose Debbie.

Debbie was fun and professional to work with. She was particularly helpful on the day of our wedding when rain was threatening….she called me early in the morning to suggest a ‘first look’ picture and then taking our formals prior to the ceremony, since it was not supposed to rain until afterwards. It was amazing – we got all our formals done before the rain, which was important because I picked our venue (Longfellows Wayside Inn in Sudbury MA, which has stunning grounds including an functioning and beautiful grist mill) with the photos highly in mind. You could say she saved our day 🙂 That aside, she is a very talented photographer and I am so pleased with how all the photos came out. I would highly recommend her for her services. She has a blog where you can see lots of her work, check it out! http://debbiesegreveblog.wordpress.com/

Debbie has a great eye. She understood my vision. She is professional, patient and meticulous at her craft. My photos are amazing. I love them. After the magical day this is all you have left and she captured the moments perfectly. I am so happy with her I can not recommend her enough.

As the mother of the bride, I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for these positively amazing photos! You captured everything from getting ready at the hotel to the gorgeous ceremony at the church and finally to Butternut Golf Club. I just loved how you captured the decorations, the lanterns, flowers, mint napkins, the favors, the beautiful cake, the memory table, guestbook… Laura worked so hard to create this beautiful atmosphere. Now she has an everlasting memory. More importantly, you took incredible pictures of the bride and groom in such beautiful settings, all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the junior bridesmaid Kaylee and the adorable Cameron, the ring bearer as well as all of the parents. When I show these photos to people, they are mesmerized. They absolutely love the shot at the end in the purple lighting. Many have said it was a Cinderella wedding. I cannot thank you enough!
