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.

Best. Photographer. Ever. Need I say more?! Okay, I'll go on :) We could not have been happier with how our wedding photos turned out! Arlene has an eye for the smallest details that truly separate good photos from great photos. Steve and I were initially so nervous to be in front of the camera all day, but those nerves soon flew out the window as soon as Arlene arrived. She has such a magical way of making you feel at ease in front of the camera. She coached us just enough to eliminate some of our awkwardness, while still allowing our personalities to shine through. Not only are her photos amazing, she is just a wonderful person and a joy to be around. There's something to be said about surrounding yourself with fun, positive, kind people on your wedding day, and Arlene embodies all of those qualities! Arlene exudes confidence behind the camera and encourages you through the whole process. I can't tell you how many times she told me how beautiful I looked that day, which really helped reassure me when I was starting to feel timid. You're wedding day is one of the most hectic and crazy whirlwinds of your life, and Arlene's cool and collected attitude allowed us to slow down, take it all in, and enjoy the process. I am so thankful to her and am so in love with our photos. I will cherish the memories from that day for the rest of my life, and I have her to thank for capturing it all! Thank you again, Arlene, you're the best!
Amazing photographies! Really great work!
I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to Arlene Chambers for shooting my seesters wedding! Arlene chambers is full of life, beauty and grace. Not only did she capture the day perfectly, but she took the time to get to know everyone and embrace the wonderful love story of Amanda and Mitch Van Wegen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart For capturing these precious moments in my seesters life! Thank you also for embracing the faith of God and capturing those precious moments with us. I truly do not think that any other photographer could have captured a most perfect better than you!
