I have worked with Ariel twice and both times have been exceptional. She is warm, energetic and fun. She was great making everyone feel comfortable. She photographed my daughter first and was so helpful to tell me how to help so my daughters pictures would be great (and they were,she looks amazing). The second time was for a 3 generations photo session and while not everyone was excited about being in front (as opposed to behind the camera) again she made everyone feel comfortable. I just had this done and cannot wait to see the pictures! She posted a sneak peek and I love seeing it, not to mention the many praises I have received for the photo! Thank you for capturing our moments in time, I will cherish them (the photos) forever. ~Meredith Rizzo
I highly recommend Ariel and I haven't even seen our finished photos yet! She is just so personable and makes you feel very comfortable in her studio. My little guy didn't cooperate so well, but Ariel understood and did everything she could to get some shots! My older guy took an immediate liking to her and keeps asking to go back haha! Ariel is talented and funny, which is such a great combination for a photographer. Can't wait to see our pics and use her again! ~Sara Bialy
Ariel was/is wonderful to work with! Her studio is warm and inviting and my girls had a great time! We will definitely be working with her again! <3 ~Jennifer & Bill Page
Ariel was fantastic through my 10 month old session! As soon as we walked through the door she made us both so comfortable and patiently waited for my daughter to come out of her shell. So far I've only seen one sneak peak picture and it's beautiful! I can't wait to see the rest this weekend! ~Renee Letina
Ariel is amazing! After meeting with her, I knew we were going to have a great time with our engagement and wedding photos. My fiancé and I recently had our engagement photos with her and she was wonderful! She made us feel so comfortable and we had a great time! She had such great ideas that we were excited with. We just got our engagement pictures back and we were blown away. She was able to capture such great moments. I am looking forward to working with her on our big day! -Nikki Alberti
After seeing Ariel's work, and meeting with her we knew she would be perfect for our wedding. We just finished our engagement photo shoot, and she was amazing. She was fun and relax and made us feel very comfortable through out the photoshoot. And after seeing how the photos turned out we have no doubt that we made the right decision. We're so excited to have her photograph our wedding next summer! -Eric Moeller
If you're looking for a super chill photographer who is still super fun and finds a way to make each session with you special, then look no further, Ariel is your girl. Each session I have done with Ariel was full of laughter, fun, and most importantly, beautiful pictures that I will cherish forever. She is able to capture life as it happens, rather than posing you to make it look that way, and still manages to capture the personality of each person. My favorite (and least favorite!) part is choosing pictures (because it is really hard to choose!) and not hating the way I look in all of them!
I recently did a shoot as a gift, and the album arrived on the day it was needed. Ariel went above and beyond to make sure I could present my gift on the intended day, and I can't thank her enough.
I can always count on Ariel to exceed my expectations, and I look forward to all of my sessions to come! Your search ends here! - Necole Rotthoff
We just did our engagement photo session with Ariel yesterday, and we can't say enough good things! First, getting ahold of her and scheduling the session was so easy because she was so flexible and responsive with her emails almost immediately! As a bride, that makes everything easier when you hear back that fast. She answered all our questions and came so prepared. I sent Ariel a bunch of photos I wanted to try and she made sure we did every single one. Personality wise, she is just so fun and easy to work with...we honestly had the best time laughing with her and just enjoying the shoot. It didn't feel forced or uncomfortable at all, it just felt like we were taking pictures with a friend. She has a real eye for what spots would look good, and is super helpful with her encouragement to just be natural. You can absolutely tell Ariel loves what she does. We only saw a sneak peak but are sooo excited to see the rest and work with her on our wedding day next summer!! We would already recommend Ariel to anyone! PS- she also traveled 45 minutes to come shoot us, just another thing we appreciate about her! -Becky
Ariel was warm, and made me and my family feel extremely comfortable in what is a very personal time for us. She seems extremely knowledgable in her practice, and her pictures are beautiful! I can't wait to see all of the results of our shoot together, and will definitely work with her and refer her to others in the future. Btw, her assistant, Rachel, is wonderful, too! - Christen Mueller
Ariel is wonderful! She was so patient with our newborn twins. She is definitely one of the most creative and talented people I know! - Nicole Kuss
I received a photo session as a wedding gift from my sister and I couldn't have asked for a better gift. I haven't seen the pictures (besides sneak peeks) and I can already say she is awesome. I am looking forward to requesting her services in the near future! - Jennifer Mcintosh
Ariel did an amazing job capturing all the moments big and small during our daughters birthday/ baby naming. we will definitely be using her again in the near future. - Josh Smith
Very professional and her work is absolutely beautiful. - Damaris Goosby
Ariel truly loves the art of photography and it shows 110% in her work! She has a keen eye for the perfect setting and such a beautiful way of capturing the perfect smile from everyone she works with. I truly had a tear in my eye when I saw my photos because she captured my children in the way I think of them when I am away from them. Ariel is a true professional! Thank you for capturing beautiful memories I will cherish all of my life! - Ashley Kingston
Working with Ariel has been a blast! After seeing the quality of her work my wife and I decided to capture special moments every month from our daughter's first year. Our daughter adores her and has so much fun at every shoot. If you want much more than a photographer then Ariel should be at the top of your list! Highly recommended! - Mark Matesich
I was just amazed to see our wedding pictures. Ariel was able to capture the best moment of the celebration and the pictures were just astonishing. Thank you so much again, Chris and I will be forever thankful. - Serge Brillon
We had a wonderful experience with Ariel. She was kind and very personable and our session was very relaxed! She listened very closely to what we wanted and made adjustments to the session to meet our needs. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional photography session. I'm very pleased with our pictures which were very quickly uploaded to her online gallery. Excellent photographer! - Carla Wegrzyn
The family photo session with Ariel far exceeded my expectations! It was not a traditional photo session which I really enjoyed. We take our kids to Delaware Park to the baseball diamond and basketball courts all the time, so we spent the afternoon at the park with Ariel. I hardly noticed that we were getting our picture taken and she captured some amazing moments. Thank you Ariel- we can’t wait to work with you again.
I had a family photo session last week with Ariel and it was a great experience! She made us feel super comfortable and allowed us to be ourselves and not like a camera was in our faces.
I would definitely recommend her for any type of event from a family photo session to a wedding!

We have just finished going through the hundreds of photographs that were taken at our wedding. To say that we were blown away, is a complete understatement! Ariel and Iggy (her assistant for the day) captured all of the special moments, the raw emotion, the candid shots at the reception as well as the fine details that the common observer would have missed. Her blog of our wedding has only been up for a few hours and we have been getting calls and texts left and right about how amazing our pictures are! We will recommend, without reservation, Ariel and her company to any and everyone that we know! Our day was special, but Ariel has made it that much more memorable! We can't thank her (and Iggy) enough! -Amy & Justin Loeber
