Ariel and Bige Wade did an AMAZING job! They are both experienced and knowledgeable. Putting us in different poses and in front of different scenery allowed our pictures to turn out beautiful! The video of our wedding was stunning and so creative. It captured videos of my husband and I being goofy with each other in the middle of different shots. They worked so hard and were able to get our edited photos back in no time. You can tell they really love what they do and that capturing the special moments in life are really important to them. 10000/10 will be recommending them to everyone I know!

If you need a wedding photography and are in the greater Orlando area you need to choose Ariel and Bige, so first of all, look no further. I was going to wait until the wedding to do this review, but the mini engagement session they gave us was so out of this world that I could not wait. First, their responsiveness was great. They contacted me and reached out to me with prompt responses, we were able to set up dates to meet and do a “small” engagement session (which To us was like a gift!). Second, They are very professional and organized. They want to make sure all of your needs are met on your wedding day and they set certain guidelines so that everyone is on the same page. Third, please heir price is basically a gift! When I started my search I wanted to work with someone that was staring up because I had a tight budget and for the longest I was going to compromise on having a photographer. I not only got one, but TWO amazing photographers. I’m soooo happy with their chemistry, the four of us clicked and we had so much fun. I’m convinced that we chose them for an amazing, purposeful reason! The end result of Only a small part of their work is what I added to this review. WE LOVED IT. They captured me and James like never before. James is an introvert, and he was comfortable and at ease. They envisioned everything I had in mind and more. We cannot wait until the wedding, and to be able to have this memories last forever. Thank you First & Port photography, you guys are out of this world!

I recently did a business collaboration with First & Port Photography. I was very impressed with my experience. Ariel and her husband are very friendly, professional and helpful. They are both so sweet and easy to work with. The photos they took turned out amazing.

Amazing!! We (as in myself specifically) wanted to do a couples shoot during our honeymoon and even though I inquired pretty last second Ariel was very quick to respond. Her and her husband are really friendly, they put us at ease and gave us great direction throughout the shoot. I was blown away at how gorgeous the shots turned out and she had an incredibly quick turnaround time as well. I cannot thank or recommend them enough and I look forward to booking with them again in the future!
