Wedding Client Testimonials
When the photos are done, clients are often kind enough to share their reviews of our working relationship. Here are a few of those appreciated remarks. Additional references are available upon request.
“There are seriously no words to describe how much my husband and I loved working with Nichole and TJ. From our first meeting to the delivery of our pictures, they offered first-rate service, friendship and kindness. After working with them for our engagement session we were so excited for our wedding day, and they more than met our expectations. They were photo ninjas - stealthily sneaking around to capture shots but never interrupting moments..."
“TJ and Nichole did such an amazing job for our November 2013 wedding! - I’ve gotten so many compliments on our wedding photos. They’re easy to work with leading up to the wedding and are such a help afterwards picking which photos to go in the album and with help editing photos for family members. Our wedding album is a work of art - Nichole is so artistic with how she arranges all the pictures. It is a beautiful album and something to treasure. They were so open to hearing what types of shots we wanted to get on our day and made us feel so at ease. You can tell that these two really love what they do and it shows in their work. I’d recommend them to anyone - and have! - for their wedding. We’re planning on using them in the years to come for our growing family!”
“We found Oldani Photography online and from our very first meeting Nichole and TJ made us feel so comfortable and confident in their skills! I have a tendency to be very self conscious but they have a way of making you feel at ease in front of the camera that brings out the best photos. Our engagement shoot was so much fun, it felt like just hanging out with friends. When our wedding day came Nichole and TJ were so helpful with photography as well as a great knowledge of the wedding industry. Nichole helped point us in the direction of some fantastic vendors and our wedding would not have been the same without her and TJ’s expertise. On my wedding day I wanted to combine two necklaces to wear at the last minute and when I couldn’t figure out how to make it work Nichole pulled out pliers and created the perfect necklace for me. Nichole and TJ not only captured the best moments from our wedding, they also made our day go smoother and added some good laughs along the way. We had so much fun with them, I cannot imagine our wedding without them!”
“TJ and Nichole are a husband and wife duo with tons and tons of experience. They captured so many details, things I never would have thought to get pictures of. They have all kinds of packages to choose from and will work with you to sort of ‘customize’ your package, so talk to them, don’t just look at their website. They do family photos too, so we have already decided they are our photographers for life! They are super, super nice and totally put us at ease and listened to our input. I would HIGHLY suggest you use these guys.”
“The first time I met the Oldanis, I was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding and they were the photographer. I thought they were so much fun to hang out with that day, and my friend’s photos were some of the most beautiful wedding pictures I’d ever seen. Finally, when my day came, I was thrilled that they could shoot my wedding as well. T.J. and Nichole were so professional and prepared, they immediately put me at ease. And there is no bridal emergency they can’t handle - like when Nichole had to help me put on my wedding dress because my mom and all my bridesmaids were running late! I also really appreciated how sensitive they were to my husband’s family being of a different faith/culture. They knew all the right to questions to ask us, so that we could plan a day that made everyone comfortable. They gave us so much personal attention from the very first consultation, to our engagement shoot, to our “first look” photo, to our last toast of the evening, and finally, to bringing me my wedding album. My husband and I, and our families, couldn’t be more pleased.”
“TJ and Nichole are an awesome husband and wife team. Both are very creative and compliment each other in their photography skills. Not only are they creative, but they are a lot of fun to work with. We had the pleasure of having our engagement and wedding photos taken with them and could not have been more pleased with how they captured our memories.”
“I’ve known Nichole for a long time I was very interested in having her and TJ shoot our wedding. I have recently watched their business grow tremendously. I knew their work was fantastic, but after our engagement session I could see even more, the reason for their success. Their technical abilities, creativity and personality make for a fantastic experience! They are a ton of fun to have around and help to keep your day as stress free as possible! My husband and I are also photographers so we had a bunch of ideas of what we wanted our shoots to be like. They were super responsive and their creativity amped up what we had in our imagination. I would recommend them to anyone!”
“Nichole and TJ are wonderful, we cannot give them enough praise! Handled our crazy wedding day schedule, rain, evening wedding dark venue, huge families, the list goes on! Can’t recommend more highly. Helped our day run smoothly and our pictures are gorgeous. We will always be thankful for such amazing photographers and wonderful pictures from our wedding!”
“TJ and Nicole are such lovely people and make lovely photos. They are great fun and also very open and accommodating to the vision I had of the wedding photos. I wanted the soft, romantic feelings in our photos and they were amazing at delivering them. Can’t recommend them enough!”
“Our experience from start to finish with TJ and Nichole was awesome. They took the time to get to know us through our engagement photo session and really listened to us to understand what we were looking for on our wedding day. The photos were spot on, creative and did a great job of capturing some of our most treasured moments. In the end, their turn around time and access to photos was just what we expected. We definitely plan on using Oldani Photography in the future.”
"I could not say more wonderful things about Oldani Photography. They go out of their way to make sure their clients are happy, a part of the process, and completely taken care off. Simple little things make a big difference on the day of your wedding like a detailed timeline, a sheet of family members names so they can call people by name, a playlist of your favorite music, and much much more! They listen to your wants and needs and make it happen! The albums are better than I ever could of imagined. Great quality of prints and durable. I have suggested Oldani Photography to every single person I know getting married and will continue to use them as our family grows in the future! I am extremely happy in every way possible."
“Oldani photography was absolutely incredible on my big day!! First off they are one of the cutest married couples you will meet! How could you not love having another couple in love capturing your day!? They pay attention to every detail; even things you wouldn’t think about! They capture very authentic moments throughout the day/night that will let you relive your wedding anytime you look through their photos! I highly recommend this team; they are top notch talent!”
“My husband and I would recommend Oldani Photography to anyone we know. We truly enjoyed working with them for our engagement and wedding photos. We both feel uncomfortable taking pictures, but they made us feel so at ease and really helped us enjoy the entire experience. Not only did our pictures turn out amazing, but they went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves! We are so glad that we chose Oldani Photography to capture our big day.”
“I absolutely could not have asked for a better experience with Oldani Photography! Both our engagement session and wedding day were flawless - TJ and Nichole made everything incredibly easy and really captured “us.” They caught even the most intimate moments of our ceremony, moments that I didn’t know anyone else saw and I love having those pictures to look back on. I cannot thank them enough for the priceless momentos they’ve given us, and look forward to working with them as our little family grows!”
“These two are such a pleasure to work with. They are friendly and very accommodating. Their pricing was appropriate and fair. The pictures turned out beautifully and we were very impressed! I would definitely use them again!”
“Zach and I have a tough job ahead of us trying to decide which photos to print because they are all amazing! Thank you for making our day so special and for capturing all of it so wonderfully.”
“This was one of the the best choices I made while planning our wedding! We are two hours away from St Louis and they were willing to travel for both engagement and wedding photos, coming early to scout for location. The engagement and wedding pictures were amazing, including the traditional pictures and some more unique and candid pictures that summed up our wedding day perfectly. TJ and Nichole are a wonderful team to work with, fun, energetic, and willing to do the extra for some amazing pictures!! Highly recommend this team!”
“You can’t go wrong with choosing Oldani Photography! TJ was great to work with and the quality of photos he takes is above all the rest. He does a great job of listening to what you are looking for and the types of photographs you like and creates amazing pictures from there. I love all of his party pics at the reception too! Not only did he get great shots of the crowd, but the lighting in all of them looks like daylight, not a dimly lit banquet center! Would highly recommend to any bride!”
“There is only one place to start when considering the value of any product you have purchased, and that is with the end result. In this case, I don’t think that Rebecca or myself could be any more ecstatic about what we now possess. We had perviously seen some of Oldani Photography’s work and knew what they were capable of, but we still were amazed with how great everything turned out. I have seen many photos make their way onto my Facebook stream from many different weddings, and while they often look to be solid work by some very capable photographers, they simply lack that bit of magic that we had hoped for in our wedding photos. I can say with certainty that we have no such feeling when looking at these. They are every bit the look we were hoping for.
TJ & Nichole were extremely prepared and were quite willing to run with our ideas on the fly during our shoots between ceremony & reception. During the main events they were perfectly balanced between arranging shots and blending in seamlessly with the crowd while taking some wonderful candid shots. They went above and beyond throughout the night and were able to capture many moments that we simply would have missed by not being able to be many places at once.
We highly recommend Oldani Photography. Their love for what they do comes through in the end product, and we couldn’t be happier with the result.”
“Nicole and TJ were excellent wedding photographers. They were easy to work with and very professional. During the engagement shoot and wedding they did a good job getting some great shots, and they were also flexible and able to work with us on getting the shots we wanted. They got so many beautiful pictures! Afterwards, we chose to get our full-resolution photos off their website, which was very convenient. They even followed up to make sure we could get the photos and we were happy with everything. Great service and great photos, we would definitely recommend them.”
"TJ and Nichole made the entire engagement/wedding experience very personal. Their photography captures every moment, that in return, paints a beautiful picture of the joy and happiness of our wedding. Their pictures are something my husband and I will always have to remember our happy day by. For those who may be camera shy, TJ and Nichole make you feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. As some one who lived out of town, setting up meetings was very easy as Nichole and TJ were very flexible. One of the things we loved about these photographers, was that they were able to show all of the pictures they took during the day of our wedding, at the reception. Friends and family loved being able to see all of the wedding pictures/fun candids while enjoying the reception. Without a doubt, the best vendors to work with. Thank you TJ and Nichole for all of your hard work!"
“I cannot say enough good things about the Oldani’s. They are fun to work with. They really love what they do and care about their clients (Nichole even teared up when she gave us our album). Their pictures are beautiful (We got compliments from everyone and two other couples we know have already used or booked them). Their prices are more than fair for the quality and attention you get. We will be using them again in the future for family photos.”
"TJ and Nichole are wonderful! They make you feel comfortable and are a lot of fun to work with! Our wedding photos are beautiful! I would absolutely recommend them and hope to work with them again in the future!"
"I whole-heartedly recommend Oldani Photography for any wedding, engagement, or other photo sessions. T.J. and Nichole are incredibly sweet and also very professional. They are so much fun that you'll stop noticing the camera quickly into your photo session. Also, in my opinion, they are the most talented photographers in St. Louis. I compared a lot of photographers' websites and portfolios as a bride. Not only did I have a glowing recommendation from a friend about the Oldanis, I could see that their photos were breath-taking. Truly, there is a magic to their work that is hard to find. Check out any of their photo shoots, and you'll see what I'm talking about. Photographs last for a lifetime, and I'm so happy we have the Oldani's artistry and talent to preserve our memories."
“TJ and Nicole are the best to work with! They are laid back and made everyone feel at ease while being completely professional. They really listened to the style of photos that we wanted and we couldn’t have been happier with the results! We have used them many times since the wedding and will continue to do so for years to come.”

“Oldani Photography made our day so special and we could not be more pleased with our photographs!! Tj and Nichole absolutely love what they do and it definitely shows in the quality of their work. My husband and I were so impressed by their attention to detail and the fact that they treated us like their own family and friends. With that being said, our friends and family were so impressed with the fact that Tj and Nichole appeared to be part of the wedding festivities, rather than just the photography. They took the time to walk around the reception and socialize with our family and friends, which is one of the many things that we valued the most about them. Our meetings with the Oldanis prior to the wedding were thoughtfully planned and our communication was direct and consistent. We would DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone and everyone! They were hands-down our best choice of vendors and we could not be happier with choosing them to be our photographers.”

"During our engagement photos session and on our wedding day TJ and Nichole were our friends first and our photographers second. They got to know us as individuals and as a couple and that is evident through the amazing photographs they took that can only be described as "so us". They were fun and funny and made us feel special every moment that we spent with them. Our photographs capture special moments in the most artistic, emotion-evoking way. We could not be happier that we found them during the wedding planning process and would recommend them to every engaged couple in the St. Louis area."
“Tj and Nichole have photographed our wedding and our newborn daughter, and both times they produced images that truly captured the spirit and beauty of these major life events. They are gifted with the ability to see fleeting moments through the lens that others could easily miss, and this creative talent has presented us with photos that we love and cherish, and look at often so we might feel the joy of those events again and again.”

Choosing my wedding photographer was probably one of the hardest decisions of the whole process for me - Oldani had the perfect romantic style I was looking for while not completely breaking my budget! They were an absolute DELIGHT to work with - I had so many of my guests tell me how wonderful and friendly my photographers were and it’s so true! The husband is goofy and outgoing so he puts everyone at ease in front of the camera, which is no easy task. The wife is more reserved and kind of hangs back while taking pictures - they compliment each other perfectly! I just got the link to my photo gallery recently and was blown away. They captured the day better than I could ever have imagined! Booking them as your photographers is a decision you will not regret -so friendly, quirky, and just fun to be around! They also include a complimentary engagement session in most of their packages which is such a wonderful idea - you’re able to get to know them before the wedding day and get comfortable in front of the camera :)”
