Ray and Casey were overall great photographers! I waited until I received the pictures back to write this review, and I can tell you they came out excellent! His prices are very affordable compared to other photographers and the quality of the pictures were great. What I liked about Ray was he wasn’t afraid to politely tell wedding guests who were in the way taking pictures to step aside so he can get his professional photos in. Wedding guests are always so anxious to get in there and get pictures but that’s what we pay our photographers for! Ray and Casey are very personable. It’s so easy to get a hold of them and very convenient to be able to text, and Ray responds very fast! My husband and I had a two year engagement, and we booked Ray the first year, and he kept in touch with us from time to time in between which was nice. We definitely recommend Ray Alvarez, and if you choose to have the second photographer like we did, you will love Casey as well!!
STYLE: All photographs and the wedding photos we have seen by him are very personal specific to each couple. When we met with him, we really felt like we got to know the other people he has photographed for just by looking through his pictures. We were thrilled when our wedding photos arrived and found the same to be true for us! TILTED (DUTCH) ANGLES AND DEPTH Personally, I LOVE his use of dutch angles and depth in photos, so be prepared to arrange yourselves with depth. Example: Groomsmen had a standard "line-up" photo that my traditional granny liked a lot, but there was another groomsmen one where they're seated throughout different pews that I thought was so much more telling of the personality of the men and showed off the natural beauty of the church). So clearly he will give you the 'standard' wedding photos but then the other 80-90% will have a lot of flare and personality that he encourages the subjects to express from within instead of being externally directed. TIMING: 2 WEEKS AND 1450 PHOTOS PLUS SLIDESHOW We had our photos within 2 weeks of the wedding and despite how agonizing it was to wait, considering how stunning the photos were, I can see why it would take a bit of time to sort and send it all! These were miles better than our friends' selfies and cell phone pics that we had to hold us over. EXPRESSION: Something that was pretty cool about receiving his photos was our guests had made a lot of comments to us about our expressions at very specific moments of the ceremony and reception that we just assumed was because they knew us so well. When we saw the photos, it was plain as day to understand what they were talking about and it all lined up with the specific moments mentioned! Clearly Emmanuel has a talent for getting an idea of who people are fairly quickly and then understanding when to focus where for the best representation of each wedding and each couple. ADDED BONUS: PERSONALITY BEYOND THE PHOTOS Every wedding is stressful in its own way, but from our very first meeting Emmanuel was so kind and helpful. Every message and communication leading up to the day was professional and cheerful. The actual day was pretty hectic (they tend to be) but he came and inserted himself into our chaos, capturing lovely instants that we now have the gift of being able to look back on. Even though he was with us all day, he was never in the way and was always helpful. He encouraged friends and family to roll with pose ideas and generally made everyone so comfortable that it's an absolute treasure to look at photos with everyone's REAL smiles instead of just 'picture day' smiles. If you do meet with him, take notice of how in other wedding photos he shows, he manages to capture a group and everyone is smiling their genuine smiles in the SAME photograph. From your oldest grandmother, to your distracted siblings, down to the youngest cousin, all of them seem to have finally been synced in the timing of their expressions of joy. (So no need to photoshop good smiles together) As my husband put it afterwards, "Just him being there added so much joy to how our loved ones celebrated with us. That by itself could be a hireable skill for a wedding day." BUDGETS AND PACKAGES He has a variety of packages to fit different needs. We were on a shoestring budget and this (photographer) was actually a family gift. The package we selected was a bit closer to "normal" wedding budgets than our lower budget, but of all the things that money was spent on, this was the best investment. The day truly flew by and we are so happy and thankful to have such amazing photos to remember it by. You know what they say: families only get together at weddings and funerals, so what a treasure it is to look at both of our extended families in the same place and through such an accurate representation of their personalities! -Plus, when else in your life will you have so many people gather because they love you and are excited to celebrate with you? We had guests from all over and it is so precious to look at them enjoying the day. Even with facebook and google+ sharing options, I've still be printing 4x6 photos to slip into individual thank you cards so that families will have a printed copy of that great photo of their young baby, or new couples will have a special momento from that lovely dance. These are simply too wonderful not to share. OVERALL: If you've continued reading this lengthy review up to this point, then you won't be shocked when I write that we highly recommend Emmanuel. I stuck to comments and points on wedding photos because that was the service he provided to us, but what I have seen of his other works is gorgeous too. In hind sight, I wish we had done an engagement photo session so that we wouldn't have agonized over what to put on Save the Dates, our wedding website, and invitations. Clearly he was a joy to work with and the quality of his product is an absolute treasure to us (I can't say that enough). Hiring him as your photographer gives you quality products and a fantastic experience. Then you'll be free to stress about other things since your photographers and photos are already more than taken care of.
Laurel did an excellent job on our family portraits. She was on time, professional, and worked really well with our rambunctious 2 year old. The photo quality was amazing, and the edits were really well done. We would highly highly recommend!
Josh was amazing to work with! He captured all of the special candid moments throughout the day as also got some great portrait shots. His film images are just stunning.
Chelsea has done 2 family photo shoots and one 1st birthday cake smash, all of which turned out completely amazing. She was able to capture 2 wild boys in ways that were simply beautiful. She is so talented and patient.
Everet is an artist. He does it all--beautiful nature photograpy, family portraits, individual protraits, creative awesome photos!!!
Alexis was at a gallery opening where I first met her. She was so sweet and made you feel so comfortable, just like a friend would who just happened to be taking photos. I took a look at her work and was amazed! The body of work was very versatile; from portraits, full photoshoots, nature, etc. Just stunning work! When I saw the photos from the gallery opening, I was blown away. She captured every bit of beauty there was in that room. From the intimate interactions between friends, family, artists, art collectors...to the peices themselves. Extremely talented and friendly!
Great pix. Choose no one else! Family, kid, portraits. Nice job. Tx
Matt is by far one of my favorite Photographers to work with! I get a different sense of comfort in knowing that I will ALWAYS have fun while shooting and ALWAYS get amazing, QUALITY pictures back! He provides a great photography experience for any occasion whether it be prom portraits or high fashion editorial! Thanks so much Matt!
scott was very professional with chris and i when we got our maternity photo shoot done. we have 3 other children this was first time doing this i had no idea what to expect, he talked us threw it all. I also had to change our apt time 2 days befor our photo shoot and he had no problem with that at all. Also i noticed big time when looking for a photographer that his prices are so affordable compared to everyone else in our area. Cant wait for our BOY to be born so he can take his baby photos also. Deffently will use scott for a spring photo shoot outside of my whole family!!
She is an amazing photographer, she has done my photos foe many years now. Not only does she have her own ideas, but she listens to your ideas as well. She is so much fun to work with and her kindness is amazing. I would gladly have her do my photos for me again!
Carly's photographs were beautiful! She took time planning and executing unique portraits of my daughter for her senior pictures. Her response and products were timely and professional. I would highly recommend Carly to anyone who wants unique and exceptional photographs.
Randy is an amazing photographer! I was looking for a photographer to do my daughter's senior portraits and he was recommended by a friend. He really captured the essence of my daughter's beauty and personality with the most beautiful & artistic photographs. Randy thinks out of the box and takes some very unique and beautiful shots. He's very professional and personable. My daughter loved working with him. Highly recommend!!
Melissa is a wonderful photographer! She does all of our family portraits and any events that come up (sports, school, etc.) She's professional, accommodating, patient and great with kids. I highly recommend her!!
I loved working w/ Herb & Diane!!! It's great having a husband wife duo. I wasn't the easiest or the most comfortable bride in front of the camera but she was able to get me to relax and have fun...even by force sometimes lol. They captured some of our most Treasured moments. They have now been our go to photographers and we have since used them for our first baby girl.
Stefanie's photos speak for themselves and truly show her creativity and ability as a photographer. She has done family portraits for us and she's great with children. She even photographed our family classic car. I am proud to display her work in my home. She's very accommodating and flexible and I would definitely use her again!
Excellent work!!! Nathan and staff are all so professional. The way they make you feel so comfortable. You know what they say, "time flys when your having fun" If your looking for portrait photographers, Nathan and his team are the ones to do it.
Photos are beautiful, creative and clever. I highly recommend Maureen to capture your special moments!!
John Carnessali is one of the most talented people I know. Whether it is a photograph of my children, or an employee on the production line of a manufacturing company, I am always amazed by the moments he captures on film. I recommend him to families and corporations alike without hesitation.
I am a photographer who loves people, and I am able to capture the essence of who you are in a special candid moment. But I can also do formal portrait work. This makes me an excellent portrait photographer.

I believe that my work stands out from others because I am a naturally creative person, so I provide many creative ideas that end up becoming amazing pictures. Also, as a teenager, I feel that I am up-to-date on the newest trends and ideas for photography.
