I've been a wedding officiant for over 10 years and have worked with many wedding photographers. I have been impressed by Anne's professionalism and enjoy working with her. I appreciate that she is unintrusive during the ceremony.
Anne in my book is one of the top wedding photographers in Vermont.. She is a talented at capturing the human spirit as a master of light and imagery. Her photos are visual poetry. Take a look for yourself.
Anne is simply the best. She did our engagement photos and then our wedding. Every step of the way she made us feel completely comfortable. She is so knowledgeable about how to “gently” pose you as to make you look natural but also highlight your best features. Her images are unique and timeless. I recommend her to everyone I can! Thanks Anne!
My husband and I chose Anne as our photographer for our wedding based on her online collection of photos and her friendly, sweet, and professional correspondence and conversations over the phone and Facetime. We live in Chicago and planning a destination wedding had its stressors for sure, but Anne was definitely not one of them. She helped out with developing a wedding timeline, photo lists, and locations for optimal photos and was always available if we had questions. We were a bit nervous having not participated in an engagement session and not being very comfortable in front of the camera. Anne helped put us at ease and made the experience fun. She did a fantastic job of capturing our love and excitement surrounding the day. We also wanted to capture the beauty of Vermont in the Fall and her work definitely did not disappoint. We received our photos quickly and there are so many gorgeous ones that we now have proudly on display in our home. We wholeheartedly recommend Anne if you are looking for a wedding photographer.
Anne is amazing and so genuine! I had been lucky enough to work with Anne on some weddings in the past as a fellow vendor, and as soon as I got engaged, I knew had to have Anne as my wedding photographer. Not only did my husband and I love Anne, but all my guest where raving about her as well. She does an amazing job of capturing all the beautiful moments while making it feel so easy and fun.
Anne is seriously an amazing photographer. My fiancé and I drove to Burlington, Vermont to meet with Anne for an 8 am engagement session with two locations and an outfit change. We wanted to have some pictures for holiday cards for our family and friends. Anne’s turnaround time is incredible! We had a few social media sneak peaks THE SAME DAY, which was the day before Thanksgiving, nonetheless. Anne also posted a beautiful blog post about our session with 15-20 photos within 5 days. Anne was so great to work with! She was extremely professional but still energetic and fun. She was so responsive with any questions we had. Coming from a perfectionist, her attention to detail is on point! She made sure to include every shot we wanted! We HIGHLY recommend Anne as a photographer. She beautifully captures the moment with natural lighting. We just got our full album back and it really puts a smile on our faces to re-live such a fun day! We cannot say enough great things about her as a professional and as a person. THANK YOU ANNE!!!! 💜
Anne is amazing! She has been a dear friend of mine for years, but my fiancé and I would never have booked her for our proposal, engagement portraits, and wedding day if she were not a TRUE professional who consistently delivers GORGEOUS photos.
My first experience working with Anne was at my best friend’s wedding a couple years ago. She was a joy to work with, made everyone feel comfortable and confident, and of course the end results were breathtaking! I have many of her photos displayed around my house.
My fiancé then hired (and schemed with) Anne to photograph his surprise proposal to me back in December. Her photos of the event (which she delivered to us SO quickly!) perfectly captured the best night of my life, surrounded by all my favorite people. We had so much fun looking through them together and basking in this wonderful time in our lives.
So it was a natural decision to book Anne for our wedding later this year! She helped us quickly schedule our engagement portraits since we were on a time crunch to get Save the Dates out. Since neither my fiancé or I had any ideas about where to shoot, Anne made a wonderful recommendation. The session was on a cold day, but she made it such a wonderful, memorable experience for us. We just received our photos (she delivered them on Valentine’s Day, talk about romantic!) and they are PERFECT. We couldn’t be happier with Anne’s work and would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Anne for all that you have already done for us and we can’t wait to work with you again this October!
I N C R E D I B L E doesn’t even begin to describe our experience with Anne! During the shoot we felt so at ease and comfortable! We just received our photos and they couldn’t be more perfect! We WILL use Anne in the future and honestly can’t wait until that time comes!!
Anne is an exceptional photographer. I will just be biased and say she is the very best! She is sweet, easy and FUN to work with. I was a bit nervous about time at my wedding and she noticed, reassured me and calmly took the most magical pictures. I can’t wait to see the rest of the album. Already 101% happy with the previews.
Anne was amazing! She helped me with my proposal to my boyfriend in Burlington, from choosing location to picking the perfect time to do it. Her attention to details was very impressive and she made one of the most important days of our life go by so smoothly. She was very helpful, supportive and made us feel comfortable. Anne was very easy to get in touch with and very responsive to all of my questions. She gets five stars for me and I highly recommend her.
Anne made us feel so safe and at ease during our engagement session with her. Having never had professional photos taken before, we were afraid of some awkwardness, but she was so delightful and upbeat the entire time that my partner and I couldn’t stop laughing because we were having so much fun. And the photos were more than I ever hoped for.
In all, Anne is a splendid professional who creates wonderful art through her photos! Highly recommend her!
Annie is an angel. She brings a genuine excitement to her photography that makes you feel sincerely important. She did an incredible job with our engagement photos and I can't wait for her to shoot our February 2020 wedding!!
I just got my engagement photos from Anne and, not only are the images spectacular, the whole experience of working with her was phenomenal. The only bad part about Anne Mientka Photography is you won't know which images to frame! For anyone camera shy, or nervous at the prospect of a shoot, Anne is a natural at putting people at ease. She has an amazing arsenal of poses that are flattering, lovely, and romantic so you can be sure you'll look amazing. I personally felt like I wouldn't know how to act in front of a camera and she gives such great, simple directives. Anne carries herself with such a sunny, generous, and kind disposition that it’s impossible not to feel at ease for the shoot. She is laser focused on details and will bend over backwards to give you amazing photos and works so nicely with you to get the kind of looks you want. From her portfolio I knew that she would accomplish a dewy, light-kissed, super romantic look in the images, but what I didn't know was that the whole experience would be really fun and a bit magical--like a really special date with your loved one. Even my fiancé was completely taken with the experience and commented again and again how fun it was. One other elegant touch Anne puts in is a personalized blog post with some of your best images. I've read several of her pieces including my own, now, and they often include lovely excerpts from poetry and quotes about love that she selects specific to every client. It really goes to show how diligently and lovingly she performs her craft and the level to which she goes above and beyond. I wasn't necessarily planning on mailing out physical announcements, but these images are so beautiful, tasteful, and perfectly reminiscent of the excitement and romance of betrothal that I may just have to.
