"Merinda’s incredible talent and her enthusiastic, pleasant personality set her apart. "

Laura + bryan

“Merinda and her Sweet Focus were truly phenomenal. Several weeks before my wedding, Merinda gave me a call to go over the wedding schedule in detail; I really appreciated her professionalism, organization, and attention to detail that contributed greatly to making my wedding day flawless.

-TIA

"She was the right choice for me and she will be the right choice for you too!

“Merinda helped our day run smoothly by keeping us on a schedule, which was difficult because of the large wedding party. Her assistant also went above and beyond from taking photos to fixing my veil and holding my bouquet when needed. Hands down she was the right choice for me and she would be for you too!”

Natalie

"she helped make my ideas a reality."

“A Sweet Focus helped document our special day and created photo memories that will last a lifetime! I was not sure of the exact places to take wedding day pictures, but she was full of ideas and willing to call places even to try and reserve spots for photos. I was vague with my ideas and descriptions of spots to go for photos, and she helped make my ideas a reality! Last night, we received the link to our organized wedding gallery and loved the photos!! Even though it will be SO DIFFICULT to choose which photos from the MANY that we love to print for our album and hang in our home, we cannot wait to get them printed!”

" we went with Merinda because we loved her kind-hearted and down-to-earth personality ."

Melissa and Andy

She was just wonderful. Additionally, her online platform for sharing information and photos was super easy to use and helpful for viewing and downloading. On the day of, she was organized and made sure she got all the family and friends shots we requested.

Can I print my photos?

Yes, you will have a print release that allows you to print for personal use.  

Will I have drone footage in my video?

That depends on restrictions and weather.  In some cases of high winds or rain I have done drone footage on a separate day.  I also hold my 107 drone pilots license. 

DO YOUR TRAVEL WITHIN THE US?

Yes, I take a select few weddings each year.  

DO YOUR TRAVEL outside of THE Us?

It depends!  I'm always up for an adventure! Well almost, Canada makes it very difficult for a US Citizen to work in their country.

Both photos and video are delivered in an online gallery.  The gallery can be downloaded and shared.
