Galena Grant Park Wedding MN-9975.jpg

We chose Amy May Photography for our Galena wedding, held in Grant Park.

Amy is the consumate professional, yet warm and caring at the same time. It was as if our dear friend was capturing our day. The creative energy she puts into each and every shot, made choosing a favorite photo impossible. We continue to receive comments from people who have seen photos of our wedding, all agreeing that her work is true artistry, especially her knowledge and use of light.
We simply cannot believe how fortunate we were to have found her. A+++
