The Polgar-Anderson Wedding
"When I met Lisa (randomly at a small wedding event that I almost didn't go to!) I instantly fell in love with her work and her photography style. I wanted to hire her right on the spot for my wedding! And I'm so glad I did!
Prior to the wedding, we did a family photo shoot at a nice location she suggested. She was so great and took the time with my kids. The prints we ordered were of the best quality I've ever seen. You could tell they'd last generations!
Just recently, Lisa and Erin captured my wedding and the "sneak peeks" are nothing short of amazing work!!! (You can view them in her Photos section!) I am so thrilled to see the rest of them! They were so professional and great to work with on my wedding day from beginning to end. I can't wait to order special gifts for my family!
Lisa is an exceptional photographer and the best one I've ever hired! I am excited for the next time she captures another special family moment. Thanks, Lisa!"
"Lisa and her partner Erin shot our wedding last October and we could not have been happier with hiring them. The entire process from the initial planning to receiving the final prints was easy, clear and genuinely exceeded our expectations. Lisa is great because for her attention to detail, style, creativity and professionalism. Weddings can get easily disrupted and not only did Lisa and Erin keep us on time they worked with our other vendors to make sure that we didn't have to worry about anything. We also had our edited pictures very quickly and they are stunning. I could not come up with anything bad to say about my experience. I would recommend Lisa and Erin to anyone."
Nowak Family Shoot
"After seeing Lisa's photography talent over the years, I knew I wanted her to capture our family pictures. From start to finish, Lisa was the utmost professional. While planning for the shoot, she stayed in close contact scheduling the best time of day based on the light and predicted weather. During our session, she did an excellent job including a variety of natural backgrounds and most importantly took beautiful pictures of our growing boys. The time she spent with me helping to pick out the best prints was invaluable as many were given as gifts. Additionally, not only were the final prints gorgeous, but they were also tastefully wrapped for easy giving. Lisa was first class from start to finish, a true professional who loves what she does and someone whom I would highly recommend to anyone!"

Inner Balance Pelvic Health & Wellness Center
"This was my second time working with Lisa in the past year. First, for a benefit Golf Tournament for Hope on Haven Hill and 2nd for my new business, Inner Balance Pelvic Health & Wellness Center. She is professional, easy to work with and extremely responsive. She listened to the nature of what we hoped to capture for our portraits and given her vast knowledge of locations for just that perfect photo, she nailed it. I've recommended her to friends several times and they have all been as pleased as I have every time!"
"Lisa photographed my wedding August 5,2017 and she did beyond amazing, I am so truly happy and pleased with all of the work she did and all of the time and effort that went into capturing such great images! I would highly recommend and will be using her in the future for all special moments I need captured."
"This past August my husband and I had the pleasure of having Lisa as our wedding photographer. Lisa was so easy to work with and even though I was a nervous bride, she instantly made me feel at ease. When I looked at our photos, I was so overwhelmed, she had captured the magic of that day perfectly. Through Lisa's beautiful photographs we were able to re-live the love and specialness of that day. I will forever be grateful to Lisa!"

Kenza's Senior Shoot
"On Sunday, August 13th 2017 we had the pleasure of experiencing Lisa's passion for photography; she quickly made Kenza feel at ease during her senior picture photo shoot. Lisa was professional, extremely knowledgeable and shared her excitement of wanting to capture the best picture that reflects who Kenza is. If in the market for a photographer, whether it’s senior pictures, family photo shoot, or any special occasion, I would highly recommend Lisa Wotkowicz Photography!"
Abby's Senior Shoot
"We just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful Senior pictures you took of Abby. We could not be any more thrilled with how they came out. You also spent so much time with us at the shoot making sure we had so many pictures to choose from...we honestly couldn't decide. Your attention to detail and capturing the right shots was fantastic. We can't wait to have you do our family portraits this Fall. You're the best and we will recommend you to all of our friends & family!"
Kanchana Ganeshappa, MD
Baumgart Family Shoot
"Lisa! Thank you so much for the amazing photo shoot. You have such a gift. Your love pours out of your heart and you are able to catch such precious moments. I've never seen my children light up in pictures the way they did with you. We can't wait for the next session! Thank you for spending so much time with us from picking out our outfits and accessories to catching the perfect light and angles. You have an amazing sense of style and elegance. Your website and products are curated to perfection! I also can't wait to see our custom prints. I absolutely love the silk photos we have already received. Many thanks again and here's to you capturing special moments in our lives for many years to come."
The Wade Family Shoot
"A few weeks ago, I asked Lisa if she would be willing and available to take some family photographs in anticipation of our son’s upcoming senior year in high school at St. Thomas Aquinas. We were hoping to capture some final moments as we enter into a year that we know will include "the first of many lasts”. I was also hoping that Lisa could catch one or two family images that we could use for the oh-so-dreaded Christmas photo. What Lisa gave back to us were not really photographs; they were visual souvenirs of Father Time.
When I first saw the proofs, I realized that my boys were no longer boys... but nearly men. And my daughter was no longer a baby but blooming into a pre-teen. (I also noticed that Father Time has felt the need to embed my laugh lines more deeply into my countenance, but I forgive him. My life has been joyous and I view the lines as positive witnesses.)
What I love most about Lisa’s photographs is how she captures that spontaneous treasured moment: a meaningful glance, a quirky smile, an authentic laugh. To me, this is where she shines as an artist, not “just” a photographer.
She is also strategic, a planner. She sought out a rusted wall that was at the beach, which turned out to be the perfect backdrop for our brown-haired, brown-eyed son. His amber eyes were magnified by the copper color behind him and now serves as one of our favorite pictures of him.
As with anything that is very special in life, we all want the very best. Lisa is, hands down, the very best. I am grateful to her for stopping Father Time in his tracks, if even for just a small moment. And for capturing the essence of the 5 people I most love in the world."
Co Owner at New England Photo Workshops
"Life is full of beautiful, dramatic, and important moments. To capture such moments it takes a quick, creative eye as well as a full heart. It is obvious that Lisa loves what she does but, her images will preserve the moments you love."
Emma's Dance Shoot
"Lisa is AMAZING! Not only did she pick the perfect location, she put my daughter at ease, which can be difficult with a teenager!
Lisa’s creative eye and use of light and space captured stunning pictures of my daughter.
If you are looking for someone to capture that special moment of your family I would highly recommend Lisa, you will not be disappointed!"
Addison's Holiday Shoot
"Lisa is so passionate about what she does! The first time I saw the pictures Lisa took just while at an event at our pool I was absolutely in LOVE with her work. You could see every little droplet of water on faces & the kids expressions... I could go on and on...just priceless pictures. The shoot with my daughter,dog and Christmas AMAZING! I honestly can't say enough. She took so much time to find the right setting and pays attention to every detail. I would highly recommend her and we will absolutely be using her again."
Andrea Sennott, ESQ
Durham Bulls Baseball 2015 & Alpaca Shearing Shoot
"Like many other parents, we have spent endless hours watching our children dance and play baseball, soccer and basketball. Our children put their hearts and souls into these games/competitions and at the end of the season we have a picture of them, posed in front of a screen. Last year Lisa was able to take pictures of our sons in action, playing the sports they love. She was really able to capture their excitement and passion. We are grateful to have these photos. Lisa has a true gift for capturing the kids sporting events!
In addition to sport photography, Lisa is also able to catch photos of everyday life as it happens. She has photographed several events for us, including birthday and graduation parties and even an alpaca shearing! We are looking forward to the puppy portraits which she will be taking for us soon!"
Jack's Senior Shoot
"I thought a photo shoot with a senior boy was going to be really difficult, but working with Lisa was amazing! She immediately put Jack (& mom!) right at ease. She scoped out the site well in advance, timed the lighting perfectly and fully immersed herself in her work. It was immediately clear that this is a passion for Lisa; we look forward to working with her again and again. a most sincere thank you!"
In the Fields Shoot
"Lisa did an amazing job of capturing me and my friends in her photos. She brought out the natural beauty and personality of every one of us, and created very special moments. We had so much fun and felt like we were just hanging out, laughing and enjoying each other. She is so easygoing and sweet, and clearly is so talented at what she does! Thank you so much, Lisa
The Barn Shoot
"Lisa has an amazing eye for detail. Her photography is better than real life. You see things so much better through her photographs; there is such a vibrant combination of light and the image she is capturing. Lisa has an uncanny ability to bring out the pure natural essence of her subjects. Nothing is posed and planned. It's true real life photography!"
Gianna's Tree Farm Shoot
"My 2 year old daughter did a shoot with Lisa last week and my baby girl had so much fun! Lisa is so kind accommodating and full of sooooo many great ideas from scenery to clothing, and props! Lisa said to me, "What are you looking for with this shoot?" In which i replied, "I trust the magic you make happen in front of your lens." MY GOSH WAS I RIGHT PUTTING MY TRUST IN HER! She picked my daughter's dress, she picked the location, the props and not to mention FUN props my two year old LOVED, including a puppy prop and the lights lisa had her hold and put around her dress! I was sparkling watching my daughter enjoy being with Lisa in front of her lens! It's very obvious Lisa loves what she does because you can see her heart and soul in every photo! I just got to view my daughters gallery and it literally brought tears to my eyes! HAPPY JOYFUL tears of course! They were perfect!"
The Norton Family Shoot
"Lisa is such an amazing photographer. She captures beauty in every shot and in places you wouldn't think beauty can be found. I would absolutely recommend her for any special moment you want captured. She is so patient and so detail oriented there's no way you won't get the shot you are looking for."

STA Around the World Fashion Show 2016
"Lisa photographed the St. Thomas Aquinas High School Spring Fashion Show in April 2016. She arrived to our event on time, prepared to capture the essence and beauty of our show and community. The finished product (her photographs) beautifully depicted the scope of our event from the models in their attire to the guests enjoying community fellowship. We have had extraordinary feedback about the quality of the pictures, and, as a result have inquired about the possibility of doing more work in the future together. She is very responsive and friendly and I would highly recommend her services."
The Flynn-Rexford Family Shoot
"We had a wonderful shoot with Lisa in the winter. She had great ideas for indoor and outdoor locations and was very patient with my infant and toddler as especially the toddler did not want to sit still or smile. She captured some wonderful moments of our family and we are very happy with the beautiful prints! Lisa is warm and professional in addition to being talented and we look forward to our next shoot with her!"
"We were so lucky to have Lisa as one of the photographers of our wedding! She captured moments, raw emotions, and put our memories on film! She is friendly, professional, and a true artist!"
"I needed a professional headshot for online and print applications. Lisa was flexible and responsive in arranging the shoot, had arranged the backdrop and lighting before I arrived, then helped me relax and be myself as the shutter flew. The final shots were crisp and clean, captured the familiar “me,” and though the backdrop seemed simple, it made for a warm, interesting background. Having seen a variety of her photographs (my own, my children, other families), Lisa’s talent shows in still shots and in motion. I would happily recommend Lisa…she has a great eye."
Gianna's Holiday Shoot
"I would highly recommend a photo session with Lisa. I had a holiday photo session with Lisa for my 14 month old daughter. As most one year old children, my daughter is very active and hard to get to sit still for pictures of any kind! Lisa was wonderful not only was she patient and pleasant with her but would stroll/run along side her capturing moments that were not even “planned” but “going with the flow”. The plan was Christmas pictures and we got that plus more! Lisa captured moments of my daughter just being her fun self! The photos came out amazing!"
The Gaulin Family Shoot
"We had not taken a family photo in almost ten years and wanted to surprise my mother for Christmas. Lisa squeezed us into her busy schedule without hesitation. She had the photo shoot all planned out for us, she knew the perfect time of day with the best lighting and had scoped out a few different spots for us. Lisa was so easy to work with. Can you imagine trying to get 2 teenage boys to smile, let alone laugh! She did! We couldn’t be happier with our photos and I would highly recommend her to anyone! My mother has already requested that I make an appointment with Lisa next time she is in NH for a family photo."
Damon Borrelli, ESQ
"...to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life." And that is exactly what Lisa does with her amazing images. Capturing the unexpected, drawing upon the emotion within tiny moments, and opening your eyes to what the heart truly feels, her images are both captivating and timeless.
I recommend her wholeheartedly! A true artist!
The Inglis Family Shoot
"So, we have 3 boys, 2 of which are VERY energetic and hate to be photographed. Somehow, Lisa managed to create a very relaxed feeling for all us and both boys were actually posing for Lisa mid way through the shoot. She was so wonderful with all of us and as a result it was one of the least stressful photoshoots we've had. We are so incredibly happy with her work as she truly captured the joy in our family; even through all the craziness. Lisa's work goes way beyond just capturing the perfect moment. The artistry with which she uses to put the final touches on each and every photo is simply amazing...and talent in its most raw form. It is clear that she pours her heart into work. We are grateful, Lisa, that you have shared your talent with us and for giving us such beautiful pieces of art that we can treasure."
Lina Haddad Abreu
The Wszolek-Alberta-Abreu Family Shoot
"Lisa photographed my family in the beginning of August before my step dad had his surgery. She was so wonderful with everyone! We had so many kids running around and 3 families. She was able to catch us together and separately. With all the chaos she was still able to focus on the newborn and Nonno (grandpa)!. On top of her being lovely and patient, the photos are gorgeous!!!!"
Baby Ava Shoot
"Lisa did a wonderful job taking photographs of my little princess Ava! She has a great eye for capturing moments. The session was such a pleasure for all of us. We definitely recommend working with her!"
Morgan's Senior Shoot
"Lisa just photographed my daughter for her senior pictures. She watched the weather and kept in constant contact with us and ultimately decided to do the session earlier so that my daughter could achieve the exact look she had envisioned. Lisa was fun, energetic and a pleasure to work with. Her photos were amazing!! Her attention to the details showed in the final product."
The Canes Family Shoot
"We used Lisa for a family photo shoot and I can not say enough good things. Not only was she professional and able to capture the kids attention the entire shoot she was also able to capture the most amazing photos. We have received so many compliments on our pictures and some people mistaking them for a magazine ad. I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely be using her again in the future."

STA SHINE Fashion Show 2017
"Last weekend, Lisa spent an evening at our St. Thomas Aquinas High School Fashion Show. This year's theme was "SHINE" and Lisa captured that theme in every photograph she took. Never have I met a photographer with such a skilled eye for lighting, perspective, and detail. She was ambitious in her shots and flexible in nature which produced exquisite photographs. She has the basics completely mastered (depth of field, focal planes, shutter speeds, etc.) and uses her software knowledge to draw out the most poignant moments of the occasion. In addition to her phenomenal talent and professionalism, Lisa is an absolute pleasure to work with and to have in the room during a special occasion. Her smile puts everyone at ease (which is very helpful during stressful events!) and she makes everyone around her feel as if they are the star of the evening. Our student models were made to feel glamorous and Lisa's photos caught not just their beauty but their inner personalities, too. She is spectacular in every way and highly recommend her to anyone seeking a photographer who offers the whole package."
Mike Howson, owner Chagrin Beer Company
Chagrin Beer Company Product Shoot
"We just finished working with Lisa to photograph Chagrin Beer Company's brews for online display. What a pleasure! Our shoot was easy to schedule, Lisa took great care in testing locations and lighting, and succeeded in finding beautiful, seasonally appropriate settings for 4 different brews. Her eye for framing the shot with attention to the small details yielded finished photos that blew us away...and we had a lot of laughs along the way. Lisa cares about every shot she takes, every commitment she makes...it's personal to her. You can tell by the way she embraces the job, like it was her own product, and she brings it out in you too. Thank you, Lisa, wonderful job!"
Owner at Solfege
"I recently finished a photo engagement with Lisa Wotkowicz. From scheduling through the photo shoot itself and into the selection of photos and the delivery of the product, I was guided by Lisa's knowledge and expertise. She was energetic, sensitive to my shyness in front of a camera and very professional. Her ease behind the lens made the whole experience quite fun. I was particularly impressed by Lisa's ability to capture emotion and personality. I am looking forward to future opportunities to work with her!"
Alexandra Bonesho, MD
The Bonesho Family Shoot
"Lisa was lovely to work with. We did a holiday family photo shoot with her. She remained friendly and calm even when the kids got boisterous. She kept the pace moving, trying a few different backgrounds and arrangements to make sure we would have several different excellent shots to choose from. Regarding her candid and action photographs, Lisa has an excellent eye and ability to capture remarkably stunning shots. We will definitely use her again!"
Bowden's Debut Shoot
"Lisa is just the person you want and need to capture life's special moments with your beloved pet. She is a die hard dog lover and talented photographer who captures warmth and unconditional love in every shot. I'm so thankful she took photos when we brought our new puppy Bowden home last winter. It seems like in a flash, he is full grown and we will cherish these moments frozen in time forever. Thank you, Lisa for the wonderful pictures!"
Lenny Willis, Durham Bulls Coach
The Baseball Spring Season 2015
"Lisa photographed our Little League baseball team. What we received from her was technically wonderful and surprisingly emotional. We were able to use consecutive shots for instruction with the kids. And the great respect and tenderness with which she approached her subjects yielded some beautiful, soul-bearing portraits of our young athletes. The photography knowledge, gentle presence and awareness that Lisa brings to this craft would translate to any setting."
Father of the Groom
"I met Lisa at my son Andrews wedding in Gloucester a few weeks ago , she was so friendly and obliging , there was a lot going on that day so it's easy for moments to be missed and people to get lost in the shuffle of the event but Lisa was spot on , capturing all the beautiful moments , she captured so many great candid moments as well ,every time I requested that she take a personal shot for me she was more than welcoming to do so , all in all she captured the wedding with such an eloquent artistry I would recommend her to anyone and I myself I'm also a photographer. It's all about capturing the moments to be able to cherish them forever, generations to come will feel as if they were there looking at her work and that is all you could ask. Thank you Lisa , your work is outstanding."
The Farias Family Shoot
"Lisa photographed my family last weekend in the sunflower field at Colby Farm. The pictures are incredible - some of my favorites that I've ever had taken of my family. Lisa captured the perfect lighting in the field and has an amazing eye for great spots for photos. At times, my 2-year-old daughter didn't want to cooperate and sit for a shot, and Lisa had lots of patience with her and waited to get it just right. She captured the personalities of both of my kids perfectly. The photos are gorgeous! I can't recommend Lisa highly enough. She is incredibly talented as a photographer and quickly put us all at ease during our time together. Thank you, Lisa, for capturing images of our family that we will treasure for years to come!"
The Lane Family Shoot
"Lisa, you are a true visionary and artist. You bring new life to those in front of your lens. My children and I loved working with your enthusiastic, creative, warm personality. I could not be happier with the photographs and would highly recommend you to all!"
MOB, Forte Wedding
"Lisa, what an AMAZING job you did taking pictures of my daughter Lauren's wedding (ie., see photos of "Lauren and Scott's Wedding" or "Lauren Olivia" or "Scott Forte")! You had to put up with very unfavorable weather conditions of drizzle and rain; but you kept a very positive attitude and were gracious throughout the whole wedding day!! The pictures are better than what I could have hoped for! GORGEOUS!! With much thanks!"
Lauren Alberta-Wszolek, MD
The Wszolek-Alberta-Abreu Family Shoot
Lisa, I am so beyond grateful for your absolutely amazing photos of my family. I have been waiting to write this review to digest everything that has happened to us over the last few months. I want to share with your clients and prospective families to give them a sense of just how meaningful these photos are.
So my dad was diagnosed with a serious medical condition this summer and he was scheduled for surgery in August. We decided to take family photos as we had never done formal photos with all of us (my dad, brother, stepmom, step siblings and all the grandchildren), and we were thinking at the time that this would be great motivation and therapy for my dad to view these photos postoperatively to help with his healing. We timed it perfectly, 2 weeks after I had my youngest child, and 2 days before his surgery! Lisa was amazing! She is so personable and seamlessly coordinated all the shots of our individual families, kids, my dad with each and all of the kids, and whole group photos. I don't know about you, but I can't get my three kids to look at me all at the same time, let alone 8 kids! We have the most beautiful photos. They capture the love and tenderness and even silliness that epitomizes any family. All of my family members were absolutely thrilled with the photos! We have so many photos that it was hard to narrow them down!
I am beyond grateful because little did we know that these photos would be the last photos that I would have of my dad. He went in for surgery, and unfortunately suffered complications and never made it out of the hospital. My family will forever cherish these photos!! As we all know, life can be so unpredictable and can change in a heartbeat. If I can give any advice, take photos of your families to capture memories forever. You will never regret it!
Lisa, thank you again from the bottom of my heart! xoxoxo
The Cordasco Family Shoot
"Lisa did an amazing job photographing our family! She was so patient and personable as she interacted with our 3 daughters - twin 9 year olds and very active and curious 3 1/2 year old. Lisa was able to work her magic to capture the very different personalities of our girls as well as capture some creative shots of our family, including our dog. She took so many amazing photos that it was challenging to narrow down our favorites! I give Lisa a 5 star plus rating and highly recommend her work. Her talent is truly a form of art and we will enjoy our photos for many years to come."
