ON THE WEDDING:
I could have chosen any photographer I wanted. For my daughter's wedding, I was prepared to put my money where my mouth was. Buy the most expensive photographer you can afford, and one you trust with all of your heart. As a matter of fact, I called David & Luke Edmonson and Jerry & Melissa Ghionis to ask if they were available to photograph my daughter's wedding this past weekend. It turns out this weekend started a huge photography conference in Vegas where they are judging and they were unavailable.
Once I realized that, I went immediately to the next best option, in my opinion, Francie Baltazar Stonestreet. No offense to any, and many, of my photography friends, because each of you is capable and deserving in your own right, but when I gave Chandler several options so she could choose for herself, we both settled on the same person.
Wedding days are stressful work days for a photographer. Not only are you the coordinator, you're the pleaser, the giver, sometimes the boss, and psychiatrist, but you're also thinking technically, and artistically about how to execute the couple's vision. Without fail, Francie delivered for us. The engagement portraits are fantastic, the bridal portraits made this dad cry, and the wedding day was handled as timely, professionally, and tactfully as could be done. I know it must have felt strange shooting for a fellow photographer. I know i would have been a bit nervous. And if she was, I didn't know it. Francie, I'm proud to say you're my friend, my colleague, and my peer. I'm so glad we made the decision we did, and I'd do it again (but let's not, because we have to pay off this one first). smile emoticon. We look forward to seeing the images. Thank you, again.

JAMIE & MATT
"I loved the blog post! It had my dad and I in tears when we saw it. All the pictures were beautiful in it."
AMY & ADAM
"If you are looking for the perfect photographer, look no further. Francie with Fireheart Photography is absolutely amazing! She did our engagement and wedding photos and we could not be happier. Francie goes above and beyond to capture the images that you want and she gets things done, which is extremely valuable with a time constraint. She works extremely well under pressure and her love and passion for photography are absolutely undeniable. I felt as though Francie was just as excited about our wedding as I was. Her enthusiasm the day of the wedding made me feel so special!
Not to mention, Francie was so fun and easy to work with. Her assistant was equally as fun and easy to work with and more importantly, they worked so great together! My sneak peek was available to view on Facebook and the FireHeart blog just two days after the wedding and I had all of our wedding images just 2 weeks after the wedding. Francie and her assistant did not miss a single moment or detail of our wedding day and I looked flawless!
As a bride, that was so important to me and I looked just as I've always imagined. Francie has superb editing skills, but keeps her photographs so very natural. She is experienced and professional and it truly shows in her work. Francie will forever be my go-to photographer for life's most important events!"
LORA & TONY
"From the first moment I contacted Francie, I knew that I had chosen correctly. She is so personable and put everyone at ease. She had such a sense of how to pose the most beautiful photographs and get the most expressive and spontaneous shots. She arrived on time and never wasted a moment while she efficiently directed everyone in the wedding party to stage some very creative shots. Francie was the ultimate professional. She was responsive to my emails and phone calls. Everyone in my wedding party commented on how professional she was and how much fun she was to have at the wedding!"
EMILY & GRANT
"Francie, you are amazing at what you do! Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding experience and capturing such incredible images. We love them!"
