Palms and Lace are the best! JJ flew out to Hawaii just for our wedding and worked with us and our budget! He told us how to pose which we needed and was very flexible with the schedule of the day. We got the first sneak peek of our photos just a day later and then the rest of them a week later. The photos were amazing and we got so many compliments from people. I love our photos! Book with Palms and Lace, you won’t regret it!

JJ and Alison are amazing! They were pleasant to work with, made us feel comfortable, and went above and beyond to make our wedding memories perfect. They captured every detail, every important moment, and more. We wanted pictures in the snow and they captured our vision perfectly and even had locations for us to choose from. We didn’t have to worry about thinking of our own poses and we got the most beautiful pictures from our wedding day. I would hire them 1000 times over again.

Palms & Lace are the most down-to-earth, easy to work with magic makers in professional photography. We are just a couple of goofballs but in a very brief time on a tucked away beach, they took engagement photos that both captured our personalities and made us look fantastic! We've done family photos with them, too, and they captured the most beautiful, natural moments with our toddler. One of my only regrets in life is NOT flying them out to photograph our wedding. Their wedding photography is STUNNING!! If you want a team of photographers you can trust with your precious moments and memories, you've found them. Can't recommend highly enough!!

If you need a photographer.. look no further. I cannot say enough great things about Palms and Lace. From the start, they were SO quick to respond and answered all my questions. They were so easy to communicate with and accommodated exactly what I needed for my small wedding! JJ shot my wedding day and he brought fun, relaxed energy. He knew exactly where/how to pose us and made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera. We had a blast with him! We received plenty of sneak peak pictures within a day and the entire gallery within a week (yes, that’s right!!) All my pictures turned out better than I ever imagined. I am sooo happy I chose Palm and Lace to capture my special day and would recommend them to anyone! 🤍

Alison and JJ were the best photographers we could have asked for. They made us feel so comfortable and went above and beyond for our wedding. We had three events spread over two days. They showed up early and ready to go for each event and brought great energy. They sent the photos earlier than we were expecting and the end product was more than we could have asked for. We haven't stopped looking at them. Thank you Alison and JJ!!

Palms and Lace are the absolute best! They photographed my best friend’s wedding in Hawaii and we knew we had to have them for our wedding in Utah! They are funny and personable, know how to all the great shots and are so fast with sending the galleries. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

JJ and Alison are warm, low-key, and happy to be there. They have a way of making the task of family pictures seem easy, effortless and fun. We left feeling like, “we’re done?” It was more of a hang out session while someone snapped a few photos. Not the stressful, awkward experience family photos can be. The experience itself was great, but the final products are the best photos we’ve gotten. Also, they got them back to us super fast.

JJ and Alison were amazing! They were easy to communicate with and quick to respond to any of my questions. We loved their energy and they were very professional. Alison helped me throughout the day with fluffing my train to even making sure I'm staying hydrated. They're more than your average wedding photographers, they genuinely care about you. Not to mention, their photos were absolutely stunning! We're having a hard time picking which photos to add to our wedding album at this time because we love them all! They made planning for a wedding destination so easy. I would highly recommend JJ and Alison!

10/10 I am so happy. I’m a graphic designer who works with photographers all the time so I was pretty selective as I was looking around for a wedding photographer bc I wanted the very best for our wedding photos. And guess what.GUYS THIS IS IT. THEY ARE THE BEST.Their photo style is ✨stunning✨ and holy smokes they are so good at capturing details. I always get so awkward I front of the camera but wow they are good at helping you feel natural and happy and beautiful in the moment.They are so fun to work with and we had a great experience during the shoots. My husband and I are SO happy about all of the photos. They are an actual dream come true.

“We were blown away by JJ and Alison. From our initial contact they were professional, helpful, and accommodating! The shoot itself was an absolute blast -- they helped us feel comfortable and were very knowledgable. Alison even made my flower crown and let me borrow her shoes. Seriously, the nicest folks! When we received our photos (only a few days later), they were STUNNING. I cannot recommend Palms & Lace enough. Incredible photographers and incredible humans!”
