Arlene is amazing! From our very first meeting to discuss our Engagement shoot and our needs for the big day, to the gentle nudges she sends 5 months later for us to pick out our favorite photos for our wedding album - she has been caring, responsive, and thoughtful every step of the way.
I can't say enough how fantastic Arlene and her team were on the big day - incredibly well prepared (even when one of our locations for photos ended up being closed unexpectedly), always energetic and upbeat, and they kept us on schedule throughout the WHOLE day - which started at 8am and went to 11pm!
And our photos! Our Engagement shoot included our Corgis - which Arlene was completely comfortable with and are hands down some of our favorite 'family' photos.
As for our Wedding Day photos; they far surpassed our expectations! She must have taken over 1,000 photos - and a majority of them were GOOD photos! She not only got great 'posed' pics, but 'candids' and some pretty amazing 'special moments' photos that take my breath away every time I see them.
Thank you, Arlene, for making the WHOLE experience - and then some - better than I hoped - and thank you so much for being so patient with us! (We promise to get our favorite photos to you soon for our album! )
Can't wait for our next set of Family photos!
XOXO Elaine J. Eugenio & Erik M. Heiberg
Where do I begin?!?! Arlene and her team are fantastic and super accommodating! I have never felt so much comfort and trust with a vendor as I did with Arlene; she is positive, friendly and has such a kind demeanor that puts you at ease. My husband and I could not have been happier with the quality of service, professionalism and photos that we received. Prior to the wedding, she requested information that allowed her to understand what was important to us on our special day. She made sure to scope out all locations (mother's house, park, church, and reception venue - SODO park) to ensure that her team would arrive on time, lighting wouldn't be an issue (winter wedding) and that she could find the perfect background for our pictures. Arlene and her team captured every moment of our big day. My guests loved interacting with Arlene and her team stating that they were very personable. My aunts couldn't stop complimenting the team noticing their style and attention to detail. I put a lot of trust in Arlene, and I am so happy I did- I never was worried that a shot was missed which allowed me to really enjoy and take in the day. She made sure to get the “perfect” shot every time, and did a great job of instructing us on how to position ourselves to where we did not look awkward. Our photos are gorgeous and I am in love with all of them! You can’t go wrong with Arlene Chambers Photography- they are simply amazing at what they do!!! Thank you for everything!!!
WE LOVE ARLENE CHAMBERS! She did a phenomenal job capturing our wedding day down to the little details I wouldn't have even thought to capture, but now are some of my favorite photos and the ones I treasure dearly. She also did a great job in capturing the beauty of the venue, Delille Cellars, and incorporated nature in a unique and beautiful way. I would *highly* recommend Arlene for your photo needs -- she's so kind, professional, thoughtful, generous with her time and energy, offers helpful suggestions on various ways to pose and look just right for the photo, and overall is a phenomenal human! Our wedding would not have been complete if it weren't for Arlene.
OH...MY...GOD. You are honestly a magician. How you could make anything look special and unawkward from yesterday is BEYOND ME.
HOW DID YOU DO THAT??????
I felt like the pics were going to look so painful and forced and T-Rex-y, and they don't!!! I L-O-V-E ALL OF THEM SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man, it really is like you know what you're doing, holy crap! Not just a pretty face! ;)
Arlene, thank you so much. And to get us a sneak-preview the NEXT day is incredible. I know you're sick and had a crazy-busy weekend, and yet you delivered on Monday like a total CHAMP! We truly can't thank you enough. Gosh, I'm just over the moon obsessed with all of them! :) :) :) :) If I ever bite the bullet and get on social media, I'll def post them and give you the credit you deserve. For now, you'll just have to rely on Eric's social butterfly self.
And the harp...omg. There are no words. It's magnificent. Eric is overjoyed with it! haha

What a pleasure it was to work with Arlene. I am so thankful I chose Arlene Chambers Photography to capture my wedding. Arlene came highly recommended and I can see why...she's professional, honest, reliable and her passion for photography can be seen in all of her AMAZING photos.
It is hard to know where to even begin with Arlene, she is just that incredible!! Never did I expect to find a wedding photographer that was not only talented beyond belief, but also so professional, so kind and all around wonderful person. I found Arlene at a time that I was feeling fairly discouraged. Everyone else I contacted for some reason or another just wasn't the right fit, but I knew that our photographer was out there somewhere, so I started inquiring with people in the wedding industry. I heard about Arlene through a girl that does bridal hair and makeup. I figured she was a very reliable source since she has seen so many weddings and the work of the photographers. I remember her telling me I HAD to check Arlene out and thank goodness I did! I was in shock when I heard back from her almost immediately, that was my first impression and it was a very good one (the communication from her over the next year was always this way, prompt and informative)!! At our meeting with her, my now husband and I just knew she was it and booked that night! We knew that was the best “wedding decision” we had made to date and it ended up remaining that way. I loved her work before we met and then it was a done deal once I got to know her! We hired her for our engagement photos, wedding and I also had her photograph a boudoir shoot as a wedding gift to my husband. Every time she shot me or us we were at such ease. She has an incredible way of making you feel comfortable, confident, and happy. She has a knack for reminding you of your love and that seemed to really come across in photos. I think it takes such a special kind of person to be able to do all of this while still "getting the shot". She easily was the best experience I had leading up to our wedding, the wedding day and now after. She is just the very best at her trade and honestly one of the best people I know. Her imagination and energy cannot be matched. Also have to give a huge shout out to her husband, Bob!! We were lucky enough to have him as our second shooter and he is so fun and talented as well! They make and incredible team and we are truly blessed to have them in our lives. Arlene is our forever photographer and we look forward to her shooting us as our life changed and grows through the years. THANK YOU ARELNE-From the bottom of our hearts. You are the very best!
My husband and I cannot express how incredible it was having Arlene photograph our engagement and wedding pictures. Arlene made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She was kind, professional, and incredibly timely with her return. We received all of our edited photographs back within three weeks of our wedding day--that is truly unheard of! She is a natural at her craft and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her. We cannot wait to use her again in the future! Thank you for everything, Arlene. You are a dream!
Weddings can be stressful with all the vendors you must choose between and of course, the cost. Picking a photographer was definitely one of the hardest decisions we had to make. Choosing Arlene was the best decision we made for our wedding. Simply put, she was incredible. The bridal party all loved her fun attitude, and myself and my wife loved her professionalism and the quality of photos she produced was outstanding. We have already referred her to 3 other engaged couples. We are also looking forward to doing family photos with her in the future.
Thank you so much Arlene! We could not have asked for better photos of our wedding. You did an excellent job with the difficult sunset lighting for our ceremony.
Arlene has done all of my children's weddings so far and we couldn't be happier with her work. She is a great communicator and has the ability so foresee possible problems, to avoid them. She really wants to help the couple bring their vision to life and does what she can to make it possible. She takes the simplest things and make them look amazing.
She puts everyone at ease with her quick wit, so she is able to capture people looking natural instead of stiff. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to capture beautiful memories.
