Here are reviews and kind words from some of my amazing wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, & portrait clients.
I am proud to say that referrals are one of the main ways I have reached new clients. It is honestly a thrill and an honor every time a client passes my name on to a friend.
If you would like to add a review of your own, please post it in the comments. Thanks!
We had an instant rapport with Eve, the owner of Poppy Studios. Her work was fantastic and we were excited to see the beautiful portraits that were to come for our own wedding. She was extremely organized and prepared thoroughly beforehand. The day was magnificent and Eve managed our two large families wonderfully for the group shots. We were so pleased with the outcome–a combination of interesting candids and fabulously lit and composed portraits. It all told a nice story of our wedding day. I highly recommend Poppy studios for your next event!
My fiancée and I met with Eve Prime of Poppy Studios and knew immediately that she was the photographer we wanted. Firstly, her work was fantastic in all regards–from beauty, composition, memorability, and emotion, but most especially for us…personality. On our wedding day, she and her staff not only truly captured us, our families and friends and made us all look like a million bucks, she captured everyone’s personalities too. Whether posed or spontaneous, they brought the best out of everyone they shot and still stayed true to who those folks are. When working with her beforehand, she made sure from the beginning that we were getting exactly what we wanted. From the engagement photos, to the wedding photos, to the wedding portraits, she was open and receptive, creative (and spot-on) in her own suggestions, supportive when we needed it, responsive, patient, and just truly a delight to work with.We couldn’t be happier with Poppy Studios, and we will definitely use them again.
I was an out of town bride (although born in NY, I now live in Oregon) and literally had to choose my photographer by price/gut feeling. I found Eve through google and did some research on her. We then had our first meeting via skype. She seemed perfect and within 5 minutes after our meeting my fiance, now husband and I decided she was the perfect fit for the job. Normally after people contract with their photographer they do engagement shots but, due to the distance that was not possible. Eve took the time then to adjust her package deals to fit our needs and scouted out our church and reception site to ensure our satisfaction was met. We finally met her the night before our wedding and knew we had made the right choice. The day of our wedding she was on time and ready to go! I would not have asked for a better photographer.
Basically, if you want someone creative, responsive, professional, and awesome then choose Eve!
Poppy Studio was everything we were looking for in an event photographer: experienced, professional, patient, reasonably priced, and flexible in working with us and with the other vendors (e.g., venue managers, entertainment providers, etc.) with which we contracted. Their online contracting and proof review services made those tasks easy. Most of all, the photos are really great! We’ve already signed Poppy up to handle another event for us next year.

Eve is a pleasure to work with and immediately made our daughter feel comfortable being photographed. She captured so many happy moments so well!
-Jen (bat mitzvah mom)
Eve did a fabulous job photographing my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. The photos captured the excitement of the day with our family and friends. Eve’s easy going personality kept us relaxed. We are very happy that Eve was our photographer for this momentous day.
-Mara (bat mitzvah mom)
Eve is so easy to work with…we loved the quality of her work and her calm personality helped to keep all of us calm on a hectic day. During the party you barely knew she was there yet she captured the feeling of the entire event!
-Hillari (bar mitzvah mom)
It was a total pleasure working with Eve at Poppy studio She did such a great job with my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah last November. Not only was her professionalism and quality of service excellent, she was extremely warm and compassionate. I felt completely comfortable with at all times. Her work is extraordinary, and very creative. She would be a great choice for any event!
-Leslie (bat mitzvah mom)
I couldn’t believe how great my headshot came out. For my entire life I believed I was just not photogenic, but Eve certainly proved me wrong. She had great instincts regarding the best ways to bring out the best in me. It was a relaxed and fun experience all around. I am now looking for excuses to come back to the Poppy Studio in the future to have professional photos done for all of my family members. These photos are so much better than any I’ve ever had taken before.
-Roslyn (headshot client)
Thank you for the amazing job you did photographing our wedding. You both were awesome, and we have received so many compliments on both your professionalism and the quality of your pictures! Thanks so much!
Eve was a pleasure to work with at our son’s Bar-Mitzvah! We are completely thrilled with our photographs (and we are hard critics for photography)! She and her assistant captured so many special moments, both posed and candids. The pictures are incredibly vibrant and really tell the story of our special day. She scouted out the venue prior to the event, so she was completely prepared. She also found interesting places to shoot photos, especially outside. She is organized and efficient and very professional. We felt completely confident and that we were in excellent hands. I highly recommend Poppy Studios for any photography event.
-Nina (bar mitzvah mom)
My husband and I were very happy with the photographs that were taken at our wedding and engagement shoot. Eve was very responsive and easy to work with, and she and her husband John worked well together on our wedding day. We especially liked the “photo booth portrait studio”–our guests loved the idea and it was a lot of fun! Eve had suggested using a nice frame as a prop in the photo booth, and it was a hit! If you are on the fence about the photo booth, I suggest that you go with it–I preferred it over the typical photo booth that I have seen at other weddings. The quality of the album that we received was amazing and everyone loves it!!

What an amazing experience! Eve and Kevin were fun and professional and went to great lengths to get the best pictures! Poppy studio and Eve Prime were beyond my expectations. I was nervous about my weight in pictures and I told this to Eve who reassured me and gave me tips on how to pose in pictures to hide some problem areas. Not to mention the photos are gorgeous! Thanks Eve!!!!
Eve and her husband John not only provided amazing wedding pictures, but they were also so helpful and fun to work with. From our engagement shoot with Eve in which she happily dragged her gear around in 90 degree heat by the Bronx River, to our planning discussions where she really understood the spirit of our wedding, we had a great time together. We are currently in the process of selecting our favorite photos for the album and it is going to be exceedingly difficult, as there are so many great ones. As a person who feels like they never look good in pictures, not only do I finally have some good pictures of myself, but also my friends, family and wedding captured in a plethora of unique and gorgeous photos.
Eve was a real pleasure to work with on every front. I have recommended her sincerely a number of times since our event to family & friends planning their own events. Her photography skills are amazing. She got a # of outstanding candid shots that most photographers would have missed and understands how to work well with lighting. Our venue was pretty dark and you would not have known that from the pictures. She was extremely flexible, easy to deal with and super responsive. Moreover, she was interested in what we had to say and listened to what we wanted and worked with that. She was creative, extremely pleasant and quick on the turnaround. The pictures look great. We are very happy that we selected Eve for our event and recommend her services highly.
-Alina (bat mitzvah mom)
Every time we look at the pictures, we love them more. Thank you again for capturing the happy/fun spirit of our family on camera.
-Nora (portrait client)
We hired Eve to photograph our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in 2012. Eve was a pleasure to deal with. She was always on-time, easy to work with and most importantly, she has a great eye! We have actually hired Eve again to photograph our son’s Bar Mitzvah in September 2014. Our album is beautiful and puts a smile on my face every time i look at it.
– Shari (Bar & Bat Mitzvah Mom)
Eve is very artistic, has a fabulous eye and is a true professional. Her photos are magnificent, she captures lots of unique and natural shots, and then creates an album that is both beautiful and creative. We used her for our daughter’s bat mitzvah in 2012 and then our son’s bar mitzvah in 2014. She is very easy to work with, responsible and reasonable in price. We highly recommend Eve!!
-Ken (bar & bat mitzvah dad)
If I had the choice I would give Poppy Studio 100 stars! They did an outstanding job for my wedding. The quality off the photographs is incredible and they captured every moment of our special day. Our guests truly enjoyed the “photo-booth”. I highly recommend adding this onto your package! Overall my experience with Poppy Studio was wonderful and I am thrilled with the results!
I was very comfortable working with Eve. She did a wonderful job, she made it very easy for me, being a nervous bride, and was able to think on her feet in changing situations. Most importantly, I LOVED my pics! None of the pictures came out “over posed”. They were very warm and captured the emotions of the day and the personalities of those she photographed. I definately would recommend her to all!
Eve at Poppy Studios was wonderful to work with for our wedding day photography. First of all, not only were the pictures absolutely beautiful, but she and her assistant were friendly, on- time, professional and easy to work with. Moreover, Eve was very accommodating (especially important when planning a wedding and time is a premium) including meeting us at the site the week before to scout good picture spots and traveling to a location we selected for engagement pictures (included in the package). Overall, we were very happy with the entire process and most importantly, the end result!
Eve at Poppy Studio was the photographer for my wedding and she was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process.
She was very responsive to any inquiry or question and went above and beyond on many occasions. Especially, when she went to scout the location beforehand to ensure pictures were taken at the best locations. Her portrait and detail shots were very professional and
I would definitely recommend her and use her in the future!
