Franzi Lee Senior Reviews

“Very attentive to our desires”

I cannot begin to say enough great things about our photo shoot with Franzi! Franzi was very attentive to our desires and wants out of the senior shoot. We were given amazing information and guidance leading up to the photo shoot making the day flow so much better. Her tips and advice were all valuable in their own way and made me as the Mom tickled for the help in getting my teen ready. Franzi is laid back, creative, funny, and just a true pleasure to work with. Her advice on getting hair and makeup done prior was well worth it. Thank you Franzi for making what could have been a stressful day so seamless!

“Professional, Creative, Friendly & Kind”

I had my daughter’s senior photos taken by Franzi Lee Photography and it was an amazing experience!

Franzi had my daughter get professional hair and make up and it was so fun and made my daughter feel extra special!

Franzi had the most creative ideas for locations and the poses she used were unique and creative. One location that stands out in my mind was a little area that had the perfect reflection of the sun and Franzi saw the potential immediately! She was extremely focused on getting the perfect shot for my daughter.

I have used other photographers in the past but Franzi’s creativity, tenacity and talent are above and beyond what I’ve experienced in the past.

Franzi was professional, creative, friendly and kind!

Thank you Franzi for an amazing experience!

“Wardrobe Suggestions”

What an amazing photogrpaher. We had the honor of working with Franzi last week for my daughter's senior session and from the very beginning she was on top of everything, with recommendations on a hair and make up artist (whom done an amazing job) to wardrobe suggestions. Franzi has one of the most beautiful personalities that truly shines when she is working with her customers. It was so sweet to sit back and watch her laugh with my daughter to make her feel comfortable and truly enjoy being photographed. Thank you so much Franzi for not only the quality of work that you provide - but for being you and making this day so much fun.

“Exactly What The Girl Wants”

Loved her so much! She loves making every session personal and exactly what the girl wants ❤️


“All the nerves went away”

I was a little nervous before my session, but once I met Franzi, all the nerves went away! My session was so fun and easy-going. I could not be more happy with the way my hair and makeup turned out! She has such a great personality and is so fun to be around. She did an amazing job directing the poses all while making sure I was comfortable. The entire experience was so positive, welcoming, exciting, and personal!

“Day Was Amazing”

We had the pleasure of working with Franzi Curry at Franzi Lee Photography for a senior session! The day was say the least. She has such a keen eye for location - from natural, to urban, to industrial - giving every photo a different look, all within a 5 mile radius. She encouraged Hannah to be herself which meant that every shot shows who Hannah is perfectly! Franzi is a joy to be around - it was as if we were spending the day with a close friend, with more laughs than any of us ever expected! Thanks, Franzi Curry at Franzi Lee Photography for a SPECTACULAR session. You will forever be the one we go to when we have moments to be captured.

“Energetic & In Tune”

I recommend everything when it comes to Franzi. She has done our son's Prom photos and now our son's senior photo session. She is creative, fun, energetic, and very in tune with her surroundings and photo wants. I highly recommend Franzi for any type of photo session you may want.

“Top Notch”

A photography session with Franzi is top notch from booking to viewing portraits. Franzi went out of her way to make my daughter, Izzy, feel comfortable and prepared for her session. Her recommendation of Taylor for hair and makeup was spot on. She was awesome! Izzy could not have been happier with how beautiful Taylor made her look and feel. Franzi is so personable and fun that yo ucan't help but be relaxed and enjoy the photography session. Once on site, her knowledge and expertise really shine through with her use of light, poses, and backdrop ideas. This was a magical experience for my daughter. We can wait to view all of the portraits! There is no doubt in my mind that Franzi is one of the best photographers around! This was not our families first booking with Franzi and it won't be our last!

Thank you for all you do!

“Everything Was Perfect”

My senior photo session with Franzi was absolutely amazing! From the time we booked, Franzi was so helpful and helped me prepare so I could look and feel my best. When the day came everything was perfect. From hair and makeup to the whole session I have no complaints! Franzi made me super comfortable and even though I was nervous at first she makes it so much easier to just be yourself which I know will show in my photos. I had no idea about locations, but Franzi knew exactly the best spots when I told her what I wanted. The whole experience was amazing and I can’t put into words how happy I am with how it went! Thank you Franzi!!


“Easy & Laid Back”

I had the pleasure of working with Franzi through my senior photos and it was by far the best experience. Every location was different, somewhere that not everyone goes to take their photos and that’s one thing I loved. She gave clear direction on how to stand or pose or even just went with the flow. The session was so easy and laid back. We had so many things to talk about when we were driving to new locations. I can’t wait to take more photos with Franzi this school year!


“Adventure & Laughter”

Franzi is by far the best! From the hair and make-up session to actually getting my photos taken, every second was filled with adventure and laughter. I absolutely hate getting my pictures taken because I always feel so self-conscious and awkward while getting them done, but Franzi completely changed that feeling. Her down to earth attitude had me feeling as though I was just taking pictures with my friends! Franzi truly has an eye for photography and she demonstrated that by choosing the most amazing and interesting places to take my photos.

One of the many things I love about Franzi is that she has you do poses you would not normally do and while I was a bit skeptical at first, those photos ended up being my absolute favorites!! Franzi and I spent about 3 or so hours taking pictures, but it honestly felt as though only an hour had passed. I truly never would have thought that I could have had so much fun while getting my pictures taken!
