My family has been getting our photos taken by Lee Ann for the last four years. Each year I am amazed at the photos she is able to get even when my children are less than cooperative. The two sided professionally designed Christmas cards are absolutely beautiful. She does all the work for you and you get all the credit. I love this hometown mother daughter business.

An excellent place is to stop in the Shoppe to see what you want for friends and family and especially to have a picture taken of special times – “the gift that keeps on giving”.. Downtown Beaver is growing all the time and Generations Photography and Specialty Gifts is setting the network for people who love coming here or living here. Try it, you will really like it!!

Maureen Burns:

Generations is by far the coolest photography AND specialty gift Shoppe I have visited. Lee Ann, the photographer has a gift of capturing the pure emotion of a person and for also capturing the essence of that special moment -wedding, first baby picture or simply a glimpse of everyday life. The gifts in the shoppe are unique and fine quality. What’s also makes the shoppe special are Paula and Lee Ann who are extremely helpful in helping me find the gift, picture frame or necklace, that I am looking for and gifts I didn’t know existed. Do yourselves a favor and visit Generations to see how special this shoppe is.

Perfect Memories that will last forever…    posted 3/31/2011

Using this photographer was on of the best and most important choices that I made leading up to my wedding. She didn’t just take photos, she captured priceless memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
Lee Ann provided guidance, professionalism, and great service in every aspect. She isn’t just a photographer, she is an artist. Her eye for capturing a picture just right is obvious to anyone looking at her photos. Every time people see my photos they want to know who the photographer was.
There literally wasn’t a picture that I didn’t love! She captured the best day of my life perfectly. When I look at her photos I am reminded of how perfect that day was.
I HIGHLY recommend Generations Photography for your wedding photos! You really couldn’t make a better choice.

Creativity that Exceeded Expectations    posted 4/6/2011

LeeAnn did an amazing job with our wedding portraits. She was very personal and was able to express creativity through our photographs. Her eye for detail is impeccable and we couldn’t imagine choosing anyone else to have captured such an important day. She was able to capture our personalities through our photographs, which made our pictures even more personal to our wedding day and us. LeeAnn was able to relate to the whole bridal party, getting their trust so everyone listened to her ideas and made our group photographs very organized and quickly arranged so that she could get the photograph and then move on. There are things about my wedding that we look back at and would have changed, but hiring LeeAnn is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day.

Picture Perfect    posted 11/23/2012

Generations Photography is amazing to put it simply. Lee Ann is friendly and down to earth which makes her so easy and comfortable to work with. She is very flexible with her packages and is willing to put together a package catered to your price range. At the time I booked with her, the special she was running at the time that I booked was a free engagement photo shoot with a booking. We didn’t need engagement photos, but I thought it would be a cool idea to do a riské photo shoot for my husband’s wedding gift and Lee Ann was happy to substitute that as my free photo shoot instead. This is something I have never done before, but she had a way of making the whole experience relaxing for me. She produced amazing photos from it that gave me no doubts in my mind about the wedding photos and she did not fail. Her and her husband both were at the wedding and did a wonderful job. They got all the types of pictures I wanted and more! I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I tell everyone I know about her. My family and friends were all impressed with her work as well and actually recommend her to people they know. I also have to mention that I originally paid for 500-600 edited images with my package, but by accident Lee Ann edited over 1000 images and was nice enough to give me all the edited images at no additional cost! I’m not saying this to make you think this is something that happens all the time, but it’s nice to have someone honest. She did not have to give me all the images and I truly appreciate that she was nice enough to do that. It was also great to be able to work directly with the person who was going to shoot the wedding. Some companies are so large that you don’t meet the photographer until a week or two before and you never know if your personalities will clash. With Lee Ann you don’t have to worry about that. As you can tell, I can’t say enough good things about Generations Photography. I recommend them to everyone I know for more than just weddings too!! Once we have children, I plan on using Generations for my baby pictures as well!

Amazing Photography    posted 11/19/2012

Generations Photography captured every moment of our wedding with incredible pictures we will cherish forever. Lee Ann met with us to determine the style of pictures we were looking for and did everything she could to go above and beyond our expectations. She included our must-have shots and recommended some unique shots that ended up being our favorites! She was incredibly professional and managed to capture every moment and event. I still don’t know how she did it! We had a cloudy/rainy wedding day, but every picture looks absolutely beautiful. The clarity and color in each and every picture is stunning. I cannot recommend Lee Ann and Generations Photography enough. You will have an absolutely amazing experience if you choose Generations!

Stunning!!!    posted 11/18/2012

As a little girl we all dream of having a fairy tale wedding, finding our Prince Charming, and riding off into the sunset. Well, thanks to Disney we have the portrait of what “riding off into the sunset” looks like. From the day we find the one we want to spend the rest of our lives with to the actual wedding day- you have hopes that you too will have that special moment captured forever. With generations photography we got that moment. (And sooooo many more) I am so grateful that I have those beautiful memories all to look at any time I’d like! Thank you so much Leeann and your staff for being so wonderful throughout the whole process- from engagement pictures to the big day! We will continue to use your shop for all other of life’s moments! 🙂

Captured the moment    posted 7/22/2012

This photographer is great. She captured the moment of each part of the day, starting with getting ready to the sunset that occurred that night. Looking over the many pictures that we got and I was able to relive every moment of the day and also the moments that I was not there for. Her attention to detail was awesome. She is friendly and willing to take pictures that we wanted in addition to many others. From the more posed pictures to the candid pictures of us and our bridal party are outstanding.

Gorgeous    posted 7/31/2011

“Gorgeous!” This is the response I have been getting from every single person that sees my wedding photos. Lee Ann captured every moment of our special day with such beauty and each picture really does reflect who we are as a couple. She had unique ideas for poses and they ended up being my favorite photos. She was professional and courteous to everyone at the wedding that she came into contact with. When we were in a time crunch after the ceremony in the church, she kept everything moving but made sure that everything we wanted was able to be done, and done beautifully. When I first got my sneak peak of the photos on my facebook, I looked at them with my husband, mom, and sister for the first time. He kept saying “Wow, she was worth it. Wow, I can’t believe it.” He is hard to impress so that is saying quite alot! There was not a moment of our day that isn’t captured in a photograph. She made sure she was present for everything, but even being present, she was almost invisible – I saw the pictures of me coming down the aisle and couldn’t believe it…I really don’t remember her being down there. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Lee Ann. She has such the eye to use whatever is around you to make it beautiful or fun or whimsical. She takes care to listen to what YOU want and what is important to YOU. Thanks to her I have photos that are truly gorgeous to cherish forever. Lee Ann is the best!

Amazing Staff & Stunning Photos 

posted 8/25/2013                                                                                                  

Generations Photography created a wonderful experience for us! From our engagement pictures to our wedding day photos, they were experienced, professional, and willing to accommodate in any way. The staff is amazing and great to work with and the prices were very reasonable for all that was included. I would definitely recommend to any Pittsburgh Bride!

Great Experience!    posted 7/26/2013

Lee Ann and her husband were an awesome team to work with.  She went above and beyond her photographer duties and her pictures are absolutely beautiful.  The only problem we have is trying to narrow down pictures to put in our album because they are all so beautiful!

 

Cami Abernethy and Justin Bakow:  

Highly recommended!    posted 6/21/2013                                                                                                  

Generations did my engagement, boudoir, and wedding photos! I will continue to use them for all other photography and so will my family/friends! All of her photos turned out flawless. She has amazing and creative ways to pose you and you fell very comfortable working with this company. Generations went above and beyond to give us what we wanted. They do not limit your imagination. Photos are also touched up and proofed very fast! You don’t have to wait months to see your wedding photos! I believe I saw mine in less than two weeks!

Absolutely love Lee Ann & family!    posted 6/21/2013

Working with Lee Ann at Generations has been such an amazing experience and I would DEFINITELY recommend her!
The day of my wedding, she was punctual and helpful — she kept track of time for us and paid special attention to help me with my dress! I would have expected my bridesmaids to be in charge of my dress, but she was very experienced with that and made sure it was right for each photo. I had sent her my wedding Pinterest board before the wedding for inspiration and I could definitely tell that she paid close attention to what I had wanted during our pictures! Most importantly, her photographs captured the essence of our wedding and bring a smile to my face every time I look at them. Lee Ann is so fun and comfortable to work with — which is definitely a big part of getting beautiful, natural pictures.

Great Photographer/Captured our perfect moments    posted 2/5/2013

Lee Ann Freeman does a wonderful job as the Photographer that co-owns this business.  I met her at a bridal show in Beaver County last Jan of 2012.  She and I immediately clicked.  She captured moments in our wedding on 12/29/12, that I don’t think anyone could have done.  She gave us the winter feel and love that it was supposed to be. I have had nothing but compliments on all of our photos and the way she literally captured every moment of the best day of our lives.  When my family grows, I will definitely make sure she captures the moments of our little ones lives
