What Clients Are Saying
babies & families
Liz is such a sweetheart, and her studio space is so beautiful and comfortable. I looked around for the perfect photographer, and was drawn to Liz because of her caring personality as well as her work. I brought my little boy in for a mommy and me studio session, and she had clothing available for him which was so nice and super cute! The session itself was incredibly easy and laid back... all I needed to do was love my son and play with him. Liz captured our interaction as it naturally unfolded and it resulted in some of the sweetest images with my son that I will cherish forever. If you're looking for a photographer who genuinely cares about the people she photographs and has the goal of creating images that show who you really are with a focus on your emotional connections, Liz is your girl. Highly recommended! — Lauren R.
Liz is personable, knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to providing beautiful keepsake photos our family loves! Highly recommend! — Amanda K.
Liz was great! She took some really awesome photos of my newborn daughter. Super professional and personal. Great studio space with complimentary drinks and snacks, a changing table for your little one, and a comfy sitting area for the parents. I recommend Liz for sure! — Valerie M.
Liz is amazing! She did our engagement, wedding, and recently our family pictures and they all turned out amazing. She was great with both of our boys and even held one while taking pictures. She’s very easy to work with and makes everyone feel comfortable. Would highly recommend! — Nicole M.
I think this was our 6th family photo session with Liz and I know that it won't be our last. Liz is so easy to work with always willing to answer questions and she brings a calm to picture day that I know helps me give genuine smiles. Every time I get our photos back they put a smile on my face because we spent most of the session laughing and the memories of making them add to how wonderful they are. — Edi R.
Liz is an amazingly gifted photographer! I absolutely love the photos she has taken of my family from photographing my wedding day to my maternity session my sons newborn, 6 month and 1 year sessions! We always turn to Liz for any of our photography needs and we are never disappointed! She's so sweet and easy to get along with! You won't be disappointed if you chose her! — Heather F.
I can't begin to tell you how wonderful the images are that you captured. They are absolutely beautiful. And looking back, it seemed effortless to me. I look forward to more sessions with you in the future. — April L.
The first place we took our newborn baby (besides our own home) was Liz's studio for his newborn session. Nervous was an understatement, 5 days old and we were packing him up and going to an unfamiliar environment. Within seconds of meeting Liz I felt at ease. Her studio was warm and comfortable, she handled our new baby with care and once the session was over I sat on her couch and nursed my baby as if I was in my own living room. I'm thankful for that experience and precious photos that will last a lifetime. — Ashleigh
I LOVE THEM ALL!!!!! How will I ever pick??? I so appreciate all your hard work and special eye behind the camera! Can't tell you how much I love them. :) — Schuyler S.
Working with Liz was an absolute JOY! We traveled all the way from Richmond, a 4-hour round-trip adventure, just so Liz could capture this special season for our growing family. Liz was so fun and playful with our 12-month old son -- he immediately was comfortable around her and in front of her camera. She made my husband and I feel very at ease with posing. The resulting images documented our family beautifully! — Allison S.
I have been getting so much delighted feedback from family and friends about our lovely newborn pictures! We are so incredibly happy with all the pictures. You captured Calvin perfectly, from his grumpy sleepy face to the overwhelming love we feel for this little guy. True to my words, his pictures are plastered all over our house. I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you so much for all your work. You truly have an amazing gift." ! — Linda M.
I have not enough words to describe Liz's work and amazing sensitiveness to capture every touch and look. She is so sweet, her studio is amazing and the pictures I received were stunning! I will for sure be doing many more photoshoots with her! — Marcela R.
We had the honor of Liz recently doing our newborn pictures in her studio. We did a family style session with our 18 month old. The experience was wonderful! Liz is so kind and personal yet also professional and brilliant! Her studio and props are beautiful and we could not be more pleased with our pictures! The experience was unlike any other! Liz came to our home to show us the pictures and help us pick out our favorites. I've never met a professional that is so kind and personal. We would totally have her photograph our special occasions again! - Ashley G.
I am so over the moon thrilled. These are so great I can't even express my gratitude and how happy these make me. Thank you! — Emily D.
Liz is such a patient photographer. I had a family session with her and even though my two year old decided to throw a tantrum (almost) the whole time, she was able to get some beautiful pictures! I HIGHLY recommend her for family photos!! — Brittany S.
Liz is great! She helped us feel right at home and was great with my kids. Her studio is warm and inviting. I loved the photos she took of my family - so clean and natural and captured us beautifully. Highly recommend and would go again. — Lindsey A.
We have been using Liz for almost 5 years now, and could not think of using anyone else. From our wedding to the birth of our first child, the results have been nothing but amazing. Not only is her work stunning, but her personality is second to none. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and at ease, which I didn’t think was possible. Our most recent experience with Liz was for birth/newborn photography and we could not have been more pleased. From the delivery room to our son’s first years, the images Liz has captured are moments we will never get back, and an investment that will be cherished forever. — Adam W.
Liz does a wonderful job! The process was fun and easy and the pics are gorgeous! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to capture the beauty of their newborn babe. — Leah M.
I highly recommend Liz Cook Photography! Liz started taking photographs for my family in 2011. Her pictures always make us look like the best versions of ourselves. Liz is wonderful with small children and is very helpful with outfit selection. She is warm and puts us all at ease. We have had pictures done in her beautiful new studio, as well as other outdoor and indoor locations. I am completely pleased with the money we have invested in her work. Five stars for this talented woman! — Erica W.
I wouldn't trust anyone else with my family's memories. We hired Liz for the full birth experience and newborn sessions. The investment was beyond worth it. The images and emotions that she captured are too good to be true. She is extremely professional and prepared for any scenario, while having the sweetest disposition and so down to earth. I felt like I had my best friend in the labor and delivery room with her there. Her studio is beautiful and full of light. She does everything she can to make you comfortable, providing snacks and a place to relax while the photos are taken. She has a wonderful wardrobe to choose from because let's be honest... what new mom likes what she looks like or has a perfect flattering pastel top for photos days after giving birth? I sure don't. But Liz dressed me in a flattering dress and the images are priceless. I recommend her to anyone who wants breathtaking images full of love and emotion. :) — Kelly J.
Weddings & Elopements
These are amazing! You gave us so many amazing photos that I feel as if I see a new gem every time I look through them! It's so strange how fast the day goes, yet these images have allowed us to look back at a very special and pivotal day and savor so many sweet moments. THANK YOU, Liz! We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you. Truly, I confess I prayed quite a bit over the photography and feel so blessed to have found such a kindred spirit and talented eye to capture our wedding day! - Rachel (& Dylan)
Working with Liz Cook Photography was the best decision for our wedding day! She could have made us look good in the dark! She made us feel so comfortable and captured every little detail of our day. Looking back at our pictures allows us to relive our wedding all over again! I can't wait to use Liz Cook Photography again! —Olivia & Cody
Choosing Liz to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions I made for our big day! She is so sweet, professional and dedicated to her work and it showed in every single picture. From the very beginning she was easy to work with and I felt like she understood exactly what we wanted. Words cannot describe how perfect our pictures turned out and we have her to thank for that! — Ashley & Erik
I cannot say enough good things about Liz. I found her when researching photographers online and when we had a chance to talk on the phone, I knew she was the one! Liz was extremely helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable. She did our engagement photos as well as our day of wedding pictures and they all turned out beautifully, not to mention she was 7 months pregnant when she shot our wedding and she was a rock star! She made us feel so comfortable and most of the time we didn't even notice she was there - yet she managed to capture what seemed like every single moment of our special day. — Tyler & Chelsea
Liz and her assistants were amazing! They were so fun and sweet and captured every little detail of our wedding day! I've been to several weddings where the photographers stood out like a sore thumb and were in the way, but these photographers blended in with our guests perfectly. Our photographs were excellent! They were so beautiful and really captured the love! We loved Liz's enthusiasm for her work and clients! —Katelyn & Grant
BEST PHOTOGRAPHER EVER! Most down to earth photographer! She makes the day go with ease! She knows how to capture those photos you want! —Katie & Chris
We had such a great time during our engagement session. We both felt comfortable and you captured some great moments between us. The session was carefree and went smooth. It felt natural and was intimate. When I look at the pictures it makes me even more excited for our wedding day! I even teared up looking through them...so much love going on. :) Thanks so much! —Hannah & Matt
I do not know where to begin! Liz and her staff went above and beyond as our photographers for our wedding. Her packages are reasonable and she is available 24/7 should you have any questions or concerns. Throughout the wedding planning process Liz interacts with you and provides forms to fill out to ensure she completely understands your uniqueness as a couple, is familiar with your story and she is a joy to work with.
We could not be more pleased with our wedding pictures and engagement pictures. We have received an overwhelming positive response from all of our family and friends who are in love with our pictures. Liz and her staff are extremely professional and courteous and are incredibly talented.
I would highly recommend Liz to any future bride who wants to be treated like royalty and to have wedding pictures comparable to any Hollywood or Royal wedding! —Courtney & Alan
Liz was so great, I felt like she or one of her assistants was everywhere to catch every moment. She really seemed to care about us, and capturing the moments that were most important to us. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone!!!! —Emily & Matt
Having Liz photograph our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made for our day!! Liz is extremely reliable, flexible and truly genuine! She has the bride and grooms best interest at heart! Her photography is absolutely flawless and she is so easy to work with!! Liz is extremely professional and responded to all of my crazy questions quickly! We are looking forward to using Liz Cook Photography in our future! —Tyler & Jay
I truly don't have the words (although I am, of course, going to try to find them!). I look through each gallery with great care, soaking in the images and letting the memories of that wonderful day flood back. You told our story. You captured the love not only between Zach and I, but with the precious people who surrounded us and celebrated with us that day. You caught my ridiculous faces, our bursts of laughter, tender glances, my brother not paying attention during the groomsmen's prayer... all the personal details that are just US. I could not be any more thrilled or delighted! The pictures are so much more than I would have thought to hope for.... they are perfect!
My parents and I both agree that one of the best decisions made during the wedding was asking you to be our photographer. We sat and looked through them together this weekend when they came to visit, and had the BEST time reliving the day! As I've said before, I felt like I was working with a dear friend through the entire process, and I just don't have the words to explain how grateful that you were the one capturing our day. - Zach & Lindsay
Liz, with your creativity you convinced my sweet husband that this collection will be one of our most treasured life pieces... Of course Henry's birth would have always been memorable to us, but you helped us recall the emotion and intensity. The Father has gifted you so... We are blessed by His outpouring through you! Thank you for being faithful to the things for which you were given passion. - Allison Y
I trusted Liz from the beginning to capture this moment with the utmost care. She asked lots of questions to see how she could make sure I stayed comfortable (because that was very important to my birth plan). She was available before my due date, e-mailing and texting me to check in, and on the day I went into labor, she was in contact with me throughout the day to keep track of my progress. When my labor sped up, she came straight to the hospital, even though it was the middle of the night. She was smiling when she entered the room.
One of the best parts of having Liz as my birth photographer was that she was completely unobtrusive during my labor, but she managed to capture every single, technicolor moment and I can’t thank her enough. Liz is not only a talented photographer, she is also passionate about women and their births. She stayed as long as it took to capture each of those new-baby moments. I am so appreciative of how much she did to create this beautiful memory for me. —Meghann C
We can't thank you enough for the memories you've given us. From maternity, to labor and delivery, and finally newborn, the photos you captured of the entire experience are absolutely heartwarming and we will cherish them always. You captured a beauty in the labor process that I would have otherwise overlooked. It would have been easy to remember it as painful (to put it mildly), but when I look through the images, all I can see is the love and support of my husband very clearly shining through. The joy we shared over the birth of our son is almost tangible, and I can't help but see only perfect beauty in all of it. Our family and friends still talk about how beautiful all of the pictures are. We love the keepsake box as well, and it is now serving as the perfect memory box for all of C's "firsts". It was a pleasure working with you and we are so glad we asked you to share in our experience of bringing our baby boy into the world! —Rachel H
I watched the birth video the day after my birth while still in the hospital. I was, and continue to be amazed at how photographs can capture such real emotion. You have such an eye for detail. I feel like I am in the moment again and again, every time I watch it. I cannot wait to share it with my children and their children. Thank you, thank you, thank you for capturing these precious events in our lives that will mean so much for generations to come. —Jacqulyn M
I am holding my daughter right now as she sleeps, and looking through the gallery was simply amazing. There are no words for how it touches my heart to have such beautiful pictures capturing that day. I love each and every one. It makes the memories so much sharper; I can remember every emotion so clearly.To me, birth photos are as essential as wedding photos. I just can't imagine not having them. Thank you so, so much. You are so talented! —Katie M.
Having Liz at the birth of our daughter was an incredible gift. I was unsure if I really wanted pictures of labor and delivery and thought, "how could that be beautiful?" I was so wrong. Birth is beautiful and because of Liz I got to see how beautiful birth is. Labor and delivery can be so hazy and easy to forget but Liz captured all the little moments along with the momentous moments and I now have memories I wouldn't have otherwise. I feel empowered, privileged and overjoyed looking back over my pictures and that is truly priceless. —Allison E
I can't say enough wonderful things about Liz Cook & birth photography. To have the whole experience documented for us to treasure forever is so special. Even though my labor & delivery didn't go as planned, I still love all the pictures & I cry every time I look through them. Highly highly recommend Liz Cook Photography. — Emily S.
Ahh LIZ!! LIZ, LIZ, LIZ! These are AMAZING!!! You did such an incredible job!! These are fantastic and so beautiful and they took us right back to the amazing experience. I can't thank you enough. You made us both cry looking at these. I am so in love with them! Thank you for being there and for telling our story. I feel so fortunate that you were there and these images are such a blessing to have. We will cherish them forever and I know our parents and closest friends will be so thankful for them too, so that they can see his birth story! You really have given us an amazing gift and I can't thank you enough. —Angela R.
It's hard to express how much Liz Cook's birth photos mean to me. I had a difficult (and very long) birth and Liz was great about being there to capture the important moments for me and my family! Being able to go through them to remember and process all that happened during the birth of my beautiful daughter was incredible and very healing for me. Liz is professional, warm, and has a great artistic vision. Her work has always stood out for me and the images from my daughter's birth are no exception. She captured intimate moments with so much beauty. Even now, a year and a half later, the pictures take my breath away. I'm beyond grateful to have the images from my birth and will cherish them always. I highly recommend Liz as a birth photographer. Seriously! Use her! —Emily G
