Working with Ope Visuals was a dream from beginning to end! Adrianne and Jerry are so easy going and fun to work with. Adrianne was extremely organized with all the details and in creating our itinerary, and Jerry was everything you'd want in a photographer and more! On top of photographing the wedding, he offered to help in any way he could! He had an umbrella for us just in case, made sure we got food and anything else we needed, and he (thankfully) took charge of putting the boutonnieres on the guys! Jerry was super easy to talk to and got the most beautiful pictures with just us going about as normal without having to spend forever posing! Thanks so much for photographing our special day and fitting in like part of the family!

I met Adrianne in college while we were studying to be teachers, and I remember being so impressed by her ability to give everything to teaching while simultaneously giving everything to photography. I figured that I'd love to have her photograph my wedding one day, but I remember feeling uneasy even then about having a large and traditional wedding.

Fast forward a few years, and I had been following Ope on instagram for awhile. They started posting about photographing elopements and small intimate weddings right around the same time my now husband and I got engaged. I remember texting Adrianne, "So, how would I go about planning a small wedding? Like a REALLY small wedding? In the winter?"

From there on, everything with Ope was amazing! They were able to help us sort through what we wanted and didn't want in terms of not just our wedding photos -- but our wedding in general. Adrianne kept me calm and centered and Jerry kept me laughing. They fit us in to their busy schedule and headed to Minneapolis to shoot our beautiful engagement photos. From there, they helped us out with what turned into a bit of a tumultuous wedding planning process (our venue unexpectedly closed!) and were such gentle and kind guides through it all.

As someone who is quite uncomfortable with photos generally, Adrianne and Jerry made me feel not just comfortable but good about our engagement and wedding photos. I love that our photos look like us -- in our city, in our favorite places, with our closest friends. We now have Ope photos all over our apartment and they are a constant source of happiness for us.

Thank you, Ope, from the bottom of our hearts!

    Back in high school I wanted to do something different with my senior pictures so I chose a girl, Adrianne, who had graduated a year before me. She had just started out her photography business and I already knew she was the nicest person ever. I’m so glad I made that choice because that great experience led me to once again working with her. After Ryan proposed there were two things I was certain of, (besides of course marrying him.) The first was that I knew I wanted Ope Visuals as our photographer. The second was that I wanted to get married at the EAA. We may not have had the EAA wedding I envisioned but it was perfect nonetheless. Ope was the first thing I booked and they were incredible throughout our entire rollercoaster of wedding planning. We are eternally grateful. ❤️ Jerry did an incredible job and took pictures of the unique details that other photographers wouldn’t even think of. When it’s your wedding it goes by so fast that you don’t always have the opportunity to see your guests enjoying themselves, but Jerry captures them in the moment rather than a million posed pictures, and as someone who hates getting their picture taken (especially posing!!) I absolutely love! My particular favorite photo is one that he got of my grandma being carried on a couch. Her facial expression is priceless and it speaks volumes about her fun personality. ❤️ Ope Visuals is truly amazing.
