Client Testimonials

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

"I’m finding it hard to come up with the right words to give Anna’s work the high praise it deserves because Anna left us speechless."

Between her work ethic, professionalism, creativity, vision, flexibility, and style, Anna is a truly talented photographer. When we started the wedding planning process, I knew that choosing the right photographer was at the very top of my list of importance. Within minutes of talking to Anna and looking through her portfolio, I knew she was the one. Basically, if you’re still reading this, stop your search and save yourself time: Anna is your girl. We felt like we were hanging out with a friend we’ve known for a long time. Despite the inevitable craziness that comes with the wedding day, Anna’s presence puts you immediately at ease. Hiring Anna was the BEST decision we made during our wedding planning process. She went above and beyond in everything she did—and she did it with grace. She’s perfection.

"She was thorough and responsive through every stage of the wedding planning process and always made me feel so excited as we counted down the days."

I absolutely loved working with Anna - she came up to shoot our wedding in Upstate, NY after I fell in love with her portfolio of work on her website. She was thorough and responsive through every stage of the wedding planning process and always made me feel so excited as we counted down the days! Pictures were very important to me but I didn't want the photo experience to dominate the day and they did such a perfect job of blending into the crowd while still getting all of the important events!! 5+ stars!

Kristen & Patrick

"Hiring Anna as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made!"

Upon our initial phone call, we knew we were in good hands. She is the absolute sweetest, most accommodating, and incredibly talented photographer. From start to finish, she was a true joy to work with. Her response time was unparalleled, and she was always ready to listen and answer any questions I had. On top of that, we just got married last weekend and have already received several absolutely GORGEOUS sneak peak photos! We are beyond thrilled!! Hire Anna Kardos! You will not be disappointed. I truly can't give her a more glowing recommendation!!

Your Burning Questions - Answered!

How many photos will we get?

My 8 hour Wedding Package guarantees a minimum of 800 photos and the 10 hour Wedding Package guarantees a minimum of 1000. That being said, you will receive a lot more than the minimum amount. I deliver every great photo taken during the day! And you will receive a minimum of 100 photos from your Engagement Session.

Do you work with a second shooter?

Yes! All of my wedding packages have a Second Photographer already included. The second shooter will photograph the Groom & Groomsmen getting ready, take alternative angles during the Ceremony and Wedding Party Photos, and help with Reception details.

When will we see our images?

The typical turnaround time for a full wedding gallery is 6-8 weeks. During the busy season (May-June and September-October), these times will be on the longer end. For smaller sessions like Engagements and Bridal Portraits, the turnaround time is 2 weeks.

Do you travel?

Absolutely! Photography has taken me all over the world: California, Iceland, St. Lucia, New York, and more. I am always open to shooting in new places and will travel for both engagement sessions and weddings. My Destination Package is built to accommodate all of the festivities you have planned and you will receive hundreds of gorgeous images. Any events outside of a 2 hour radius of Richmond, Virginia will incur additional travel charges (mileage, hotel stay, etc.).

Do you shoot film or digital?

I shoot digital. My work is meant to reflect a film aesthetic achieved through my shooting and editing process. I have experience shooting film and love the medium. If you are interested in adding film onto your wedding package, don’t hesitate to ask.
