About

Doug and Melinda went above and beyond for my wedding. It rained on my wedding day but that didn't stop our photographers from taking beautiful rain shots, it actually added to the magic! We originally wanted photos at the Palace of Fine Arts but that wouldn't have worked out with the rain, so we came up with a plan B after the wedding ceremony and Doug was flexible with the sudden change. Later that day, my mother and my aunt could not figure out how to pin my bustle, Melinda stepped in like a pro and saved the day! Not only are they great photographers but they really helped us keep the flow of the wedding. We saw a preview of our wedding photo gallery and it was beautiful, we cannot wait to see all of the photos and create our album. We especially loved the candid shots during the wedding ceremony as well as the rain shots.

About

Jeff was smart, prepared, and professional. I selected him over other photographers because my impression was that he approached a job with the customer's needs at heart, and his work at our event certainly bore that out. He communicated well, was unobtrusive and helpful, and oh by the way he took some wonderful pictures of people engaged and working together at our event. You will enjoy working with Jeff, I promise.

About

Chantelle was AMAZING! She went above and beyond what I expected. I hired her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. She showed up on time ready to go. Like always in a great mood. My makeup came out perfect and stayed on all night (noon to 1am). I switched my hair last minute and she had no issue with it and my husband loved it. She also helped out my bridesmaids with some eyeliner and even did a quick up do for another. My photographer called and said she was running late so she wouldn't be able to take any pics of me getting ready. I was a little bummed......BUT CHANTELLE HAD HER CAMERA. She started snapping away and was able to get the shots my photographer missed. Thank you so much Chantelle for making me look and feel incredible on my wedding day!

Jen did a family portrait style session with the whole group and subgroups. It took about 45 minutes. Jen was friendly, personable and efficient. The photo shoot was done quickly which is helpful with little ones. We have >200 pictures to go through and pick the best ones.

About

Nick was with my wife and I throughout the entire wedding day. He showed up bright and early at our home as we were getting ready, and he stayed until the bonfire at the end of the night. All the while getting great shots of the ceremony, reception, and the little details in between. He was hands on when we wanted him to be, helping us to relax for some of the more 'posey' shots, but he also knew to step back when we wanted some alone time. Your wedding is one where you only want close friends/family around, so were a little skeptical of having a photographer around the whole day, but Nick fit effortlessly in like we had known him for years. Oh, and again, the pictures...fantastic. The lighting, the composition, and the fact that unlike some other wedding photographers work, his photos seem very natural. Totally captured the spirit of the day. Thanks Nick!

Tatiana was very quick in replays to our e-mails. She answered all of our questions very promptly and provided needed details. It was clear that she wanted to work with us. She was flexible in her schedule and it was easy to find time that works for all of us. She was very calm, nice and happy in person. I was real joy to work with her. Our kids also liked her, too. She had different ideas for photos, but allowed us to just be ourselves as well. The photos game our as we expected or exceeded our expectation. She has specific style which can be seen on her web site. Our pictures match her style very exactly. We liked that she had some pictures that documented our current family and also had some artistic photos which were live and full of emotions. Many pictures look like they are made with film camera in the most positive sense. She use mostly prime lenses which have certain restrictions and make photographer think more how to capture the moment.

About

I am an emerging photographer who specializes in creating unique, artistic images. Over the past 10 years, I've fostered a successful career in studio art. Recently, I've had the opportunity to set up a shop in a commercial studio and work under the guidance of a talented, local commercial photographer. During this time, I've started a successful portrait business shooting kids and families and worked as a second shooter for an established wedding photographer. I'm looking for a few select clients who want contemporary, stylish and fun wedding photography. By hiring me, you will get unobtrusive support on your wedding day. I can offer tailor-made services, including slide shows, printed albums as well as online proofing and printing services; all to fit your needs and budget. I won't try to sell you anything you don't want or need. I can even offer a complete set of high-resolution digital files. I will bring my unique, creative energy and collaborate with you to capture the fun, excitement and love that make your day so special. Best regards, Patrick Haywood
