Testimonials

Our family’s experience with Luce Photography was amazing! We had never had a professional photo session before and interviewed a few other photographers before selecting Luce. We wanted both senior photos and a family photo session so it was important to us that we felt comfortable with the staff and processes before engaging a photographer. We wanted to truly capture this moment in time for our family. We also had a budget to stay within and they respected that and offered suggestions for staying within our limit. After learning of several options, we elected albums rather than framed photographs for portability purposes. Luce was extremely patient and informative during each of the interview process, registration and photo selection sessions. Our twin seniors loved the very helpful styling session and relaxed atmosphere of their location shoot. Our family had SO MUCH fun during our studio session – Luce really captured the personality of our family! We could not have been more pleased with the staff, service and results. We confidently recommend Luce Photography to anyone.

The Marsh Family

Never in our wildest dreams did we think Neaka's pictures would turn out so great. The makeup artist and styling session were so worth it - she looked great but not "made up" as so many other senior pictures unfortunately turn out. The photographer provided an easy atmosphere due to her easy going background and allowed Neaka to be at ease and just herself. She was open to suggestions on poses and added some other ideas as well, providing for a slew of great pictures. Luce Photography was so easy to deal with. Making the appointment literally took less than 10 minutes, the makeup artist, stylist and photographer all showed up on time on their designated days and times, and reviewing pictures was super easy because of the location and relaxing environment when reviewing them. So happy with the end result and look forward to working with Luce Photography again for my son's Senior pictures!

We had a fantastic experience with our extended family shoot with Luce. It is rare to have our sons and grandchildren all together in the same state at the same time. I wanted to be sure I selected a photographer that would produce amazing results and they delivered! We had them create our Christmas cards with the images and could not be more pleased with the results! I highly recommend them!

Luce is such an amazing studio. They don't sit you in poses and tell you to "smile". They simply capture real life as it happens around them. I have never been so in love with pictures I have had taken. I refuse to go to any other place but back to Luce! The staff is absolutely the best I have ever experienced.

Can I just say how wonderful are Trusa and Sarah at Luce Photography? Yes, I can and I will. They are in the business of helping us capture memories of our most favorite people. Somehow, they catch more and it's even better than I could imagine.

Marlea Hoover Hodgin

First let me say that my son is 17 years old, shy and modest, and not excited about doing portraits at all. Sarah was able to make him feel comfortable and relaxed, which led to fantastic portraits. I was so pleased with how she brought out his smile and personality. Sarah and Trusa and friendly and easy to work with. I could not have been more happy with the results. The portraits were amazing!

Kathy White

We chose Luce Photography for our daughter's senior session and are absolutely thrilled with the results! Sarah and Trusa at Luce made the process from beginning to end easy and fun, with excellent results. They helped her with outfit choices, hair and makeup suggestions (including natural, beautiful professional makeup on the day of the session), and chose an urban location that was right in line with the vibe she was seeking. The session itself was stress-free and fun - they were not rushed and were creative in their choices of "locations within the location". They were also helpful in directing her through a variety of poses so that we had lots to choose from!Post-session, they were quick to provide us with an online gallery that included our ability to select "favorites". This was very helpful in narrowing down our selections and it was nice to preview at home prior to the office appointment. The images were lovely and appropriate for graduation cards, thank you notes, home portraits, sorority recruitment and gifts for relatives. We chose Luce after seeing their work (and also those of other photographers). They have a way of capturing the spirit of the seniors and having them "look like themselves" --- we have seen other work where the girls were so made up and the poses/pictures so stylized that the images were more of an editorial look and in my opinion, unusable, instead of lovely pictures meant to capture a moment in time. Luce went above and beyond and I would recommend them without reservation.

What a fun photo experience! My family typically does outdoor photos, so I didn’t know what to expect with an indoor photo shoot. It was awesome from start to finish. Trusa and Sarah were immediately welcoming. They set the tone for a lively, high-energy photo session with music and lots of laughter, and they knew just how to get a smile from my 4-year-old and 6-month-old. The end result wasn’t a bunch of staged, stuffy photos – they really captured my family’s personality. We were able to move around together, squish up close, and just be silly together. It was super fun, and I’m thrilled with the final images. I highly recommend LUCE. Check them out!

Audrey Sellers

Thank you so much Luce Photography! The Senior photos you took of my daughters were simply amazing! Although the girls look alike, you were able to capture their distinct personalities perfectly! I was so thrilled with the pictures of my daughters that I rushed my son up for a session with you before he left for college! I have never before had such beautiful portraits. Thank you again!

Liz G.

This was such a great experience! To be completely honest, I don't love having my picture taken, and I was not very excited about going in and getting senior pictures done. However, Luce made it such a fun experience for me and I really enjoyed it! My pictures turned out amazing, and I could not be more happy with how everything turned out :)

Kennedie Kirkham

My children are teenagers and we had them photographed together at Luce for the first time since they were babies. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish! In addition to receiving the best photos ever of my kids together, we also received outstanding senior portraits of my eldest son. Nothing in the photos appears posed or stiff; you can see the personalities of my kids in all the photos. My son's personality really shone through in his senior portrait! Choosing the photos that we wanted to buy was the hardest part because they were all wonderful. The price we paid for our final photos was very reasonable and much less than I had originally expected. Book your next photo session at Luce; you won't be disappointed!

Robyn Adams

Thank you for your prompt, professional service. I am pleased with the result and will be sure to consult you for any future photos. Luce Photography has my highest recommendation for complete customer satisfaction, and that isn't something that happens often. :)

Kind Regards,Stephanie Briggs

My son is going to be a Senior this year and I am overwhelmed by the Senior Ads which need to be prepared. I met with Sarah yesterday and was so pleased with her professionalism and the final project. I stopped by Luce again this morning to add quotes to the ads and she was eager to work on the ads once more! I definitely recommend Luce for your photo needs.

Julie Wilson Hansen

Took my 6 month old to get some pictures made, and she wasn't her normal smiley self due to her teething, so wasn't sure how the pics would turn out. After viewing the images the captured it blew me away at all of the amazing shots and moments they were able to capture! I am beyond pleased with my experience and would def recommend them to anyone!

Love, Love, LOVE LUCE! We booked a session for our kids photos after my daughter went to a "Runway" birthday party there. Not only was it a fun experience for my kids, but I enjoyed the professionalism & fun atmosphere. The photographers were friendly and patient, and suggested tons of ideas. My kids fully enjoyed the experience, and the photos were amazing. This is not a stuffy portrait studio -- the photos capture special moments and true personalities shine. We love our images & get tons of compliments on them. Thanks Trusa!!

Paige Jezek

I've used Luce a couple of times, and the pictures are always amazing. The photographers are nice and easy to work with. The only problem is that it's hard to narrow down to just a couple of poses! They were also great with our dogs - they even have dog treats in the studio. I recommended them to a couple of friends, who then had pictures done there and were also very satisfied.

Nici Sandberg

Thankful to have beautiful memories

"This is our 2nd year to use Luce Photography for our family pictures. We've all shared the dreaded studio experience before, uncomfortable poses that nobody really sits in, children who don't want to sit still to get that "perfect shot" and an inexperienced photographer who just makes the whole thing look staged. The beautiful thing about Luce is that they photograph life happening. Real responses to the way our loved ones make us feel. They are able to capture it all, the loving way a parent looks at their child or those silly moments that make you laugh. The final product is always flawless, the only hard part is narrowing down the photos for purchase."

~ Tina. R.

"I purchased a sitting from Luce at the Carroll ISD fund raiser and knew nothing about the photographer or the Company. Booking the sitting was easy. They were very accommodating and flexible. We were thrilled with the outcome and we ended up ordering several extra pictures. In fact, I have 3 proudly displayed in our home and 2 prominently displayed in my office.We had such a great experience we also used them to produce our holiday cards and confidently sent their work to over 300 of our friends, family and business associates.I found their work to be creative, different and better than any of the larger name photographers that we have previously used in the Southlake and Tarrant County area.I will use Luce again and highly recommend them."

Gorgeous Pictures!

I picked up our holiday cards today and I could not be more pleased! I got our cards done early this year because I saw a special Luce Photography was doing, and the images on their website looked great. I am glad I chose Luce. It was easy to call and get an appointment, They sent me email reminders and then the day of our shoot went very smoothly. Trusa had fun music playing in the background and our family of four played around with the props and toys she had. Once the little ones were happy and relaxed she shot them playing, and then we pulled together as a family and she took some more shots of all of us. The results are great and I am so happy with the Christmas card and the extra pictures. She made us all look fabulous! I posted a couple of the Facebook pictures Trusa emailed me, and they got rave reviews from friends. Pricing was very reasonable, particularly with the special. I feel like I got gorgeous images at a great price. I would highly recommend Trusa at Luce Photography!

I’m glad to have come in contact with LUCE Photography. For my daughter’s first school pictures, I couldn’t be more happy. Just wish I would have found them sooner for my girl’s 1st month pictures or even while I was pregnant! LUCE’s quality is superb. For memories to last a lifetime, I would definitely recommend LUCE. I took her into the studio for her 6 month photo shoot and Claire and Trusa did an AMAZING job capturing my little girl. Outstanding pictures, it was hard to choose. I come from Denton, which is a little ways from Southlake, but with the quality of the pictures, I will definitely drive all the way for LUCE to take those special amazing pictures. They give you more than enough time to get several great pictures. They don’t schedule back to back so you have more than enough time and not hurried. Also, the photos focus on the subject(s) and not all the background stuff. There are usually some great specials so go ahead and try them out. Their studio packs a big punch. Definitely recommend LUCE for those priceless and precious photos that you want to last. Have used LUCE a few times already and will use them in the future, already waiting for my next session. LUCE is wonderful. If you want superb photos and a a caring staff, contact Luce Photography in Southlake. You won t be dissapointed ! Memories to last a lifetime.

"Thanks Luce Photography for such a fun experience resulting in our best Christmas cards to date. It was such a treat to get a card that I love and to get there without the aggravation often felt in trying to get 5 kids together, all happy and smiling at the same time. The amazing part is the picture we selected for the front of the card was captured while in the process of getting the kids gathered for a photo setting. It just turned out so cute and we received tons of compliments on them. Our kids had a blast during the photo session and then there were so many good pictures to choose from. All in all, a fabulous experience!!!"

"Luce is so much fun we forgot we were actually having our pictures taken! I have four small children and even the thought of family picture day makes me cringe. One of the kids is always cranky and someone is in tears and I plead and beg for just "one more smile" and promise to go for ice cream after. However when my family entered into the Luce studio it was different. Different than anything I had ever seen. There was fun music playing, there were toys and props for the kids to use and play with. Before I knew it we had dozens of amazing pictures with the kids being themselves and showcasing who they really are. The environment is so comfortable and warm and the photographers are very professional yet inspirational and approachable. Try Luce...I promise you will love it. They have redefined the art of photography in Southlake."

~ Allison F. (Southlake)

Luce Photography has helped me with 2 different photo shoots: one for my daughter who was a graduating senior and one for my daughter who is involved in local pageants. Both times they did a tremendous job both during the shoot and the quality of the photos. The photographers knew just how to get my girls to relax, smile naturally and feel good about themselves. They went to extreme efforts to get photos back on a quick turn around schedule and they bent over backwards to help me when I gave them incorrect date information. They were always prompt to respond to phone calls and emails. Their studio is clean, airy and inspirational. I would highly recommend them to any of my close friends! I have gotten tons of compliments on their photos and senior announcements!

~ Susan M. (Southlake)

No one ever comments on my Christmas Cards. This year I got the cards done at Luce and I got rave reviews. The session was so relaxed that I never once worried if we were going to be able to get the kids to behave. They actually had fun! I was originally going just to get pictures for cards, but they turned out so well that I ended up ordering some to hang in our house. I had a hard time narrowing it down. They all turned out so great!

~ Janet L. (Southlake)

I first have to say that our family of six arrived a bit late and a bit harried. I looked at Trusa and asked, "Can you take a grumpy family photo?" She smiled and said, "Of course, follow me." We do a family photo every year at the holidays, and have used many local studios. This experience was by far the best. Very fun, relaxed and they took so many pictures that there were plenty to choose. My oldest son who never smiles upon command, was thrilled with the pictures of him being natural and with a smile on his face, that he posted them on Facebook immediately. My husband even commented that it was fun to get the dreaded picture done!

~ Cynthia D. (Southlake)

"We love Luce Photography!They did an incredible job capturing the spirit of my 10 year old and her closest friends since kindergarten. Trusa and staff were able to capture the spirit of her group in such a beautiful way. I cried when I saw the photos. Luce Photography is current, professional and helpful in deciding how to make selections.

I can’t say enough about how much our family has enjoyed our photos from LUCE Photography!!! -- such a great job capturing the spirit of our girls and avoiding the “posed” photo look. They even accommodated our 3-year-old lab – no small feat!! We loved it so much, my younger one had her 8th birthday party there and all the girls had a fabulous time. Trusa and her staff are very professional and make everyone feel welcome and relaxed. Couldn’t be happier with the experience and love to see such amazing photos fill our home!
