Jeff did a great job of engaging the wedding guests in the photo spot. The 4 x 6 photos were appreciated (vs tiny strip). More props would have made this a solid 5 rating (boas, sunglasses, hats, etc).

We hired Brian to be our DJ for our wedding. What we got was so different from what we expected. We have heard so many horror stories from our family members. They requested songs in advance only to be told that the DJ didn't have it and they would have to download it to be played. Brian had every song we wanted. When the song list we picked didn't seem to work, Brian went into high gear and got the party moving. He miked our JP so that everyone could hear our vows. He provided unexpected lighting for our tent (we didn't think a 1:00 wedding would go all night). To top everything off he went into photographer mode. We had a very good friend shoot beautiful pictures of the usual. Wedding photos, cake cutting, father/daughter dance, etc... However, she could only stay for so long. Brian came to the rescue and captured so many unexpected moments of my crazy family on the dance floor and in the pool. I strongly recommend Brian to whomever is in need of his service. We are sure that our future daughter-in- law will use him as well. He was such a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much Brian.

Review: A friend recommended Tom for wedding photography. We couldn’t be happier we chose him. Not only did her get some incredible photos, he was very easy to work with and put everyone at ease. We really liked the slide show he played during the reception of the ceremony and formal shots. He also put our wedding up on a beautiful website, where our friends and family could view the whole wedding and purchase prints. And he was one of the most affordable photographers that we looked into.

Chris was our wedding photographer and he was absolutely amazing! He was there all day and was sure to meet all of our needs and wants for our photos. He gave us a sneak peak a few days later and everyone loved those photos. When we got the rest of our photos we were just blown away! It was amazing and honestly made me cry remembering our day and how well he captured it. On top of that the photo booth we had from him was a huge hit and everyone loved it!

I got so lucky finding Kidd Media!! I can't wait to watch their amazing business grow. I feel like I'm best friends with Sara now! There was actually a point close to the wedding when I told my mom Sara was my favorite person to talk about the wedding because she is such a great listener! I went into this pretty blind.. not knowing what to expect. I could only meet with them via Skype before the wedding, but they did a great job listening to any concerns and talked me through it all so I felt comfortable. My husband was very nervous that they would be in the way the whole time and was positive he would never watch the video after the wedding. He now says "Remember when I thought I didn't want a video and would never watch it?!" Because he's obsessed with the video! He keeps saying how glad he is we pursued it. It caught so many wonderful moments to keep the day crystal clear in our memories. We both laughed and cried during our trailer video and our full length feature! They even specialized the full video with a cute ending personalized to us. The turn- around time was incredible and their communication is so quick. Which is huge to me... I never felt I was bothering them when I emailed or texted. They first thing we received was our trailer video and it was AMAZING!!! Then when I wanted to make a few small changes (for personal preference) they welcomed them with open arms and made the changes the same day! I'm a huge perfectionist so its great to work with people who really listen to exactly what you want and don't give you a hard time. They kept saying they wanted to make sure it was exactly what I wanted and they certainly did just that. I could sing their praises for days. I feel so lucky to have a beautiful video of my wedding day and I have Jeff and Sara to thank for that! THANK YOU!

My Fiancé and I hired Maggie as our wedding photographer and we are so glad we did! Maggie will respond quickly to any email, phone call, and is happy to communicate over FaceTime. We just completed our complementary engagement photos and couldn’t be happier with the experience. Maggie was patience, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She has a great eye for unique backgrounds and makes you feel very comfortable. Although we were new to taking any kind of professional photos, Maggie made us feel we knew what we were doing and offers subtle direction. We couldn’t be happier to work with Maggie and are very much looking forward to her capturing our big day!

Priscilla photographed my wedding for me as well as a well as a family shoot of me and my daughter's. She was more than flexible and patient with me on my wedding day and somehow created magic when she captured our outdoor shots in poor lighting as the sun was setting. The pictures came out great.

Josh was absolutely AMAZING! His work was SO above and beyond! First off, we went with the middle package. He let us use two hours (of the eight) to cover our rehearsal dinner! He also met with the pastor independently to discuss the photo regulations in the church. Then he went to the rehearsal so that he could take test shots and find the best places to stand for the ceremony! He did his own photo both-type deal at the rehearsal dinner so that people could all get shots of themselves! It was BRILLIANT! After, even though I asked to have him from 9:30 to 3:30, he showed up at the ceremony site before I did (at 9!) to take pictures of the venue! Not only was he there, but he had brought a phenomenal assistant for free! He took all the pictures, and the assistant worked on the lighting/getting people to focus! He got INCREDIBLE getting ready shots of me with my family. The ceremony pictures are STUNNING, and he was NEVER in the way! We got great pictures of the first kiss/rings/our exit... He was everywhere at once, and he never missed a single great shot! I gave him a shot list of formal family/bridal party pictures (it was long) and he got multiples of EVERY shot to make sure they were perfect! We met him down by the lake, and he did shots of me and my groom! They all came out AMAZINGLY! He listened to our ideas, and had some brilliant ideas of his own! He also did an AMAZING job at the reception! He got every picture we could have ever hoped for! We got multiple STUNNING shots of the cake, tons of pictures of us cutting it! The toasts were awful, but Josh managed to only get pictures of when we were smiling and laughing, and the one sweet moment in the best man's speech! He also took additional (goofy) pictures on the chaise lounge at our reception! We all had SO much fun. And additional pictures outside! So we ended up leaving the reception at 4:30... Josh gave us an extra hour of coverage, and we didn't even realize we were over because he didn't rush us at all! He was masterful and dedicated to getting the best shot possible! For $950, Josh was a STEAL. I was expecting pictures that looked like they came out of a Sears photo session, but they look INCREDIBLE. They are stunning, easily the quality of photographers I looked at that were three or four times as much. Best of all, he gave us 10 or so proofs in "trendy" washes (super faded, super bright), around 20 in black and white, a couple blue washes, a couple sepia washes, and the other 200 proofs (so just the best of the best) were digitally enhanced but classic pictures! For our 8 hour wedding, we got 237 enhanced proofs, and we get a CD with full reproduction rights for ALL pictures taken at the event! Like I said, Josh is a STEAL for a photographer, insanely brilliant, and I would HIGHLY recommend him!

Maggie is extremely talented. Very attentive and captures every moment you would want. Her and her team member come up with great photo ideas and there creativity is outstanding. I couldn't be more pleased with the photos I have recieved! They are breathtaking ! We had FIREWORKS at our wedding and the pictures look awsome! Also we had a few obsticals and if you see the pictures you wouldn't even know it. They do an excellent job at cutting out unwanted things in the background. They maneuver the camera angle so just my husband and I in the pictures though there was a lot going on. I would highly recommend them for any occasion they truley do their best to capture all the special moments !!!

Stephen did a fantastic job photographing or wedding. Not only were we thrilled with the results, we were also impressed with his patience and professionalism. He was adaptable when members of the wedding party were running late, and was able to get all of the shots we had originally asked for. He stayed at the reception well into the night and made sure we were updated on his progress with editing. All in all, Stephen is a great choice for a wallet-friendly wedding photographer.
