      Hey there! I’m Pam..

      yep, this is me burying my couple under her veil or ‘mosquito netting’ as lovingly referred to by one of my fab couples! i chose this shot for my bio because it’s ME and the way i work. i want nothing more than for you to enjoy the photo part of your day, as much as the rest of your day. maybe more! i mean you get to be ‘in love supermodels’ for the day! no overly posed stiff awkward UGH & why?! type experiences allowed. lets have fun and celebrate and get some real & beautiful memories for you to hold on to for as long as you both shall live. 😉

      lets chat!

      Pam came with me to Mexico and well before then, I knew I loved her. I was so nervous and I remember planning a photographer and thinking, “It doesn’t matter what goes wrong ... I just need good pictures.” With Pam, I received the most gorgeous moments captured on camera. Pam has the reputation in my area of being one of the best photographers, but more so a genuine BLAST to work with. On my wedding day, while I was stressing, she made everything easy, fun, and smooth. I will forever recommend her to everyone & anyone seeking a photographer.

      There aren’t enough positive things to say about Pam Cooley Photography! Wedding planning is overwhelming, but the second we booked with Pam, we knew our photography was completely under control. We weren’t even 20 minutes into our engagement session before my fiancé (at the time) whispered to me that he wanted to book her officially for the wedding! .. and he was the nervous one! She made our engagement session so easy and nerve free and welcomed our two dogs like they were her own!!! Her PHOTOS speak for themselves! So dreamy and amazing! ... Pam even took it upon herself to create a timeline to follow since I wasn’t the best bride at all of the details!! ... THEN! The wedding day. Holy smokes! She was so easy going, welcomed our crazy family AND gave us direction when we needed it. What more could you ask for?! The best part?! We didn’t spend hours upon hours doing awkward poses or making our friends and family take loads of pictures.. we got what we needed quickly and they are AMAZING! We found ourselves stalking her FB/IG page for sneak peeks and drooling over all of them! And we got our pictures SO FAST! ... I would recommend Pam Cooley ten times over for engagement/wedding/anything!

      Since we first met Pam, she has been a joy to work with. Coming to our engagement session we were very nervous as we didn't often show affection in front of anyone, let alone a stranger. She instantly made us feel at ease and had us laughing the entire time. Her constant words of affirmation were so encouraging and she made us feel like naturals. After that, we were completely ready for our wedding and, thankfully, not the least bit nervous. Having her there was so comforting to us, knowing that every important moment would be captured; and she knew exactly what we wanted. Each time she gave us the photos back incredibly fast for the amount of photos that were taken, and the amount of time it must have taken to edit. She is always easy to get a hold of and has become a great friend to us. We can't wait to take family photos with her in the years to come. It is so fantastic to know we found a lifelong photographer and not just a "day of" photographer. To top it off, I personally met with her to do an outside boudoir shoot and woah!!! I was blown away at the photos and how comfortable she made me feel. Pam you rock! We love you!
