What a journey! You are such a beautiful soul and talented artist. From the first time I saw your work I knew that's exactly what I wanted and after we met we felt so at ease, I just knew things were going to work out perfectly!
I appreciate how challenging it must of been photographing a small wedding, with an odd bridal party and we all find cameras terribly intimidating, especially my husband.. but you Â were so professional, calm and relaxed, yet fun..Â
YouÂ got on famously with ALL our other suppliers which made our day so much more smooth and your advice on lighting and timing made the world of difference in ensuring we made the most of every opportunity.. When we received our photos, I cried the happiest of tears as you had given us something so unique and magical!
Our photos are more than I ever dreamt and our album is absolutely stunning. There really are no words to explain how grateful we are.

April is such a lovely person who genuinely cares about you and making sure your photos are perfect and exactly what you want. She captures natural moments in the most amazing way. She is a true artist. Our engagement and wedding photos were incredible. She is extremely professional but also fun and takes the time to get to know you. You can tell she is passionate about her work just by looking at the quality of her photographs. When we had our baby we just had to get April to take the photos because we knew she would do an amazing job for those too! And she did not disappoint. We are so happy we chose April to photograph such important moments in our lives. The photos bring so much happiness to us as we relive those precious memories! I am always recommending April to everyone. She's awesome!!! Thank you April

You cannot begin to imagine how much joy your gorgeous images have brought to our lives. From our beautiful wedding, to family portraits with our beloved fur-babies, to announcing our pregnancy, you have been there to tell our fairytale from the very beginning with your gorgeous photos and infectious smile. The photos that you have taken line the walls of our home and are a constant reminder of all that we have to be thankful for.
You are an exceptional photographer and a truly incredible human being whom we are forever grateful to have met. We can't wait for you to capture all the other milestone that we may blessed with in the future.

Photographers are plentiful, however true artists are few. Our deepest gratitude for creating masterpieces out of a camera shy couple. I can not count the number of times people have said "these are the best wedding photos I've ever seen" Not only were we amazed by your work, but our friends, family & colleagues have been nothing short of 'awe stricken' from seeing our wedding album. Investing in photography for our wedding was the best decision that we made in all of our wedding planning. Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives and we get to relive this day every time we flip through our photos. Beyond your talent & professionalism, you are truly kind & genuine. Your friendship & guidance throughout our wedding planning was immeasurable and we truly value & appreciate your ongoing friendship. Looking forward to many more photoshoots to come!

April photographed our Wedding in the Hunter Valley in Autumn 2014 and the time we spent with her during our photo shoot became the most memorable and enjoyable experience we have both had. April has an incredible eye for amazing photographs and her professional yet warm and friendly personality enabled us to be completely relaxed and have fun during the shoot. We were so thrilled with all of the photos and would definitely recommend April Werz Photography to others.

I first met April when she photographed the wedding of one of my best friends. It was from that day that I never forgot the name April Werz and knew that she would one day photograph my wedding. Aside from the fact that there was not one photo from the wedding that I didn't love, April was like a wedding guest, a friend, a family member.
Fast forward a few years and it was my turn. Of course April was one of the first people I contacted after announcing our engagement. At the recommendation of April, we had organised to have our photos taken in the amazing gardens of an estate in Woodville NSW. After seeing some of the photos April had previously shot there, to say I was excited was an understatement. But on the day, the weather had other plans. Grey skies, persistent heavy rain and crazy, crazy winds! I think April referred to it at times like "being sucked up in a tornado". As soon as April arrived she started brain storming different ideas and alternative photo locations for us. She even offered to do a re-shoot at the estate. But we wanted the photos to be real and capture the day for what it was so we went with it.
The first sneak peek we got on Facebook, I burst in to tears. Our photos were nothing like we had expected, they were so much better! Not that I expected anything less, but they were so unique and amazing. They truly captured the day for what it was - perfect. The weather was no longer that one thing I wanted to change about the day.
I still to this day cannot explain how amazing I think April Werz is as a photographer and a person. All I can do is tell anyone and everyone if you are getting married, you need to book April Werz!

I spotted April's photos online a few years ago and fell in love with her artistic style and ability to capture the most tender moments.
My sister got married the year before me and also chose April so I was able to see her in action and loved her even more after that!
April is AMAZING! She is very organised and friendly. She was so on the ball and made an effort to get to know us and our family. It was a very personalised experience and it is obvious she loves what she does and truly wants to capture amazing memories for you. I was very worried about lack of time for photoâ€™s and different locations due to my dress change but she was a Godsend. Her knowledge and professionalism ensured we ended up with amazing photographs that we could not be happier with!
I was a rollercoaster of emotions on the day, happy and excited one minute, nervous and stressing out the next but I felt very comfortable with April that she had everything under control. She gave amazing direction and kept us all moving and on time so we could just relax. Which I think is going above and beyond for a photographer.
I have had so many compliments even from acquaintances who happen to come across the photo's on Facebook, about how amazing our photo's are.
I highly recommend April to any couple who wants artistic, beautifully edited, extraordinary wedding photographs.

I just wanted to let you know that the photos arrived today & Ryan & I have been pouring all over them all night - they're fantastic!!
We're absolutely thrilled with what you have captured & we really were moved by some of the images. You really have done us proud & brought our day back to life for us. There were so many elements that we either didn't see or had forgotten & then we saw them in your shots, it's amazing!
You've done the most awesome job on them & we couldn't be happier with the results.
You've really made us so happy & we can't wait to share with with our friends & family.
We're truly VERY happy customers.
All the best & we're sure to be back so you can capture our children in years to come!

Thank you so much for photographing our wedding day. From the moment we met you you made us feel so comfortable that we knew you were the photographer for us! Love your relaxed approach and your creativity. I asked for different and you gave me different. Our coffee table book is stunning and it has received many, many compliments.
Thank you again for our trash the dress photos, we love that we have two very different sets of wedding pictures. I can honestly say that that day was one of the most fun filled days of our lives! Thanks for braving the freezing waters with us and giving us amazing pictures.
You are not only a lovely person but a truly talented one!
Shari and Chris.
Thank you so much April ! Not only for using your amazing talent to capture such wonderful memories of our wedding day but also because, in addition to that, you are quite simply a pleasure to be around. We surrounded ourselves with a brilliant team of professionals on our special day and you were undeniably the highlight - you laughed with us, had fun with us and even had a little wiggle to the band whilst snapping away with your cameras .... nothing was a drama or too much trouble and it definitely enhanced the whole experience for a couple who are not usually so relaxed in front of a lens.
You took the time in the lead up to our marriage to get to know us personally, consequently gaining an understanding our photographic preferences and it certainly shows in the results! Not only are the shots absolutely breathtaking they have also portrayed us (and our story) in exactly the way we envisaged which is a skill that not all photographers possess. Couples spend such a lot of time with their photographer pre wedding, throughout the day itself and for quite awhile after the event so it was really important to us to find exactly the right person - you ticked all the boxes April so, again, thank you from the bottom of our very contented hearts.
Jenny & Luke
Oh how grateful we are for your relaxed approach, professionalism and sincerity. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and you have managed to capture it almost 'bottling it' to look at whenever we like. We can never thank you enough for an amazing job!
Simon and Tabitha Tworek
Just a note to say thanks heaps for the albums. You did a sensational job, they look great. Everyone I have shown is very impressed. Thanks for adding in a few extras too. I particularly liked the different sizes in the photos and the layouts.
Regards, Debbie & Scott
We found April very last minute, weâ€™d decided we wanted a photographer at our engagement party, one so we didnâ€™t have to worry about taking photos ourselves and two because we lived in Perth and we wanted to trial and meet our potential wedding photographer, and this would be our one and only opportunity before the wedding. Only a few days before the engagement party I was lucky enough to organise April to photograph my best friends increasingly large baby belly, she was my bridesmaid so it was her duty to help me pick the photographer, the perfect excuse!
I was so lucky that April was at the engagement party, as no one remembered to bring a camera! April was there for roughly 2 hours and after a quick briefing of what my expectations she went to work! She was almost invisible, at one point I actually forgot she was there and was surprised when she told me it was our turn for photos! It was great have a practice photo shoot, as like most people I'd never been in front of the professional lens! The whole day was fantastic, and the photos we received were better than I could have ever imagined! And it was just the engagement party!!
Come wedding day, and after various emails and phone calls over the previous 9 months, I really felt comfortable with April, like she was a friend. I'd been collecting various styles of photography and sending them to April who was very excited about being given the license to get creative! I was so rushed on the day, but April was seriously a very calming voice, its great getting a pep talk from someone who has literally done this before 100 of times! Her experience with the whole day was invaluable! I trusted her so much!
I am still amazed to this day, and slightly obsessed with my photos as I still don't know how April did it! I hardly remember her being there!
We'd chosen a private garden for our photos, and it definitely helped in setting the theme and style. We knew April would just love this place and prior to the big day we'd managed to go and take photos of the location and then share them with April, just so she had a better feel for the location. Her dedication on the day was spectacular! At one point she was laying on the gravel just so she could get the right angle, it was amazing!
All of my guests during the reception were asking me how I knew my photographer, they all thought we were friends from years ago because they remembered her from the engagement party and because she was just so dedicated. They all came and told me how lovely she was and how relaxed and confident she was. Everyone wanted to know where I found her. It was great looking back through the photos of my guests, April just has this amazing ability to get a genuine smile from everyone. Everyone just looks so happy and comfortable...even my husband who hates getting his photo taken! He's still so proud of himself for looking so handsome in all of the photos!
I would recommend April to anyone getting married, having a baby or getting engaged and you will seriously be disappointed if you don't have her. Our thought for the wedding was scrimp where we can, but invest in the photos, and what a wise investment we made. We have some amazing photos that we call our 'Wedding Art'...weâ€™re looking forward to getting huge canvasâ€™s for our walls!
We're looking forward to having April capture all of our milestones in our life!
