“We worked with Frankie for our engagement pictures and they turned out AMAZING!! Not only did she recommend an amazing location for our shoot, she also quelled my concerns about not wanting to wear too much makeup. She told me to arrive with my natural hair & makeup and promised she’d make me look beautiful and boy did she deliver! If you are looking for artistic, timeless, and stunning photos look no further than Frankie!!”
