They Say

A little bit of love I’ve received from a handful of my amazing couples!

Like actually genuine. She undoubtedly has the technical skill and eye for the stuff, but she also has this rare heart for bringing out the spirits of those whom she photographs. We absolutely loved working with her and having her capture our engagement session. When we met her at the shoot, she made us feel so so comfortable. We had so much fun just being ourselves, and she just worked her magic, somehow producing such fun and pretty pictures of some otherwise not-so-photogenic people haha. Also, even though we were terrible at it, Margarette was always super prompt and eager with communication. She is seriously great, and we hope we can have her take some more photos for us in the future!”

“Dear Margarette and John, 

From our engagement shoot to wedding day, we cannot express how thankful we are to have you guys as our photographers! Not only are you crazy talented, but you guys also put so much heart and hard work into what you do. Thank you for telling our story in beautiful words and pictures, and for blessing us with your time and effort. We could not believe how efficient you guys were, especially in the group pictures, which made our wedding day so smooth and enjoyable. We love the Diakonia crew and how fun you guys are! Thank you also for being accessible, professional, and flexible with our needs. Margarette, we loved that you incorporated who we were as a couple and really captured the vision of what we wanted to celebrate. It’s also awesome to work with photographers who are enthusiastic and joyful, despite the long hours you have to work! We hope you guys continue to bless others with God’s love and a servant’s heart. Without a doubt we will fully recommend Margarette Sia photography to our friends and family :)”

She is so patient, detail-oriented, and helpful throughout the photoshoot session. She always listens to us, and provides professional advice in things we need, including but not limited to location options, clothing selection, accessory color matching. It is impossible that she would disappoint anyone. Also, we would love to express our thanks to Grace as well. Grace is a wonderful assistant. She pays attention to all details, and she knows how to make us comfortable during the photoshoot session. Thank you, Margarette and Grace! We had a great time with you!
