Wedding and Event Photography
All things considered, we recommend Aylads Photography MOST HIGHLY. Diana and Michael are highly skilled, gracious, truly accommodating, and in May 2019 provided very fast turn-around on sending us the finished product of more than 2GB photographs. My large, extended family came from the U. K. In celebration of Mother’s 85th birthday. I am a long-time amateur photographer; even so, I haven’t the artistry Diana and Michael demonstrated, both in working with a very diverse group of young and older persons, and applying this artistry to challenging lighting situations as our group moved around the Hotel Albuquerque, both inside and out of doors. Moreover, Diana's gentle and kind stage direction absolutely perfect, and her retouching with Photoshop unequaled. Michael and Diana worked hard to ensure that each man's shirt was perfectly tucked, and each lady’s jewellery exquisitely highlighted. Their prices are more than fair. It was our pleasure to offer them a meal and drinks whilst they waited for us to pause for a little supper before resuming shooting in a private dining room. In consideration of all these extraordinary attributes my family recommends their services without reservation. In future, we will not hesitate for even a moment to engage their services over and over for occasions such as this. When asked to select my favourite photo, I found it impossible to choose just one. Such is the Family’s delight with both the original shots and those subsequently modified with an eye toward perfection that each Family member discovered multiple gems memorialising this party, 7 months in the works. In particular, Mother is pleased beyond words with the results of their work. Fulfilling her wishes for a tremendously successful and artistic body of work was my highest priority. Diana and Michael surpassed all our expectations. We cannot speak more highly of their efforts. I predict that all who engage Aylads will be as thrilled as we are with their generosity of spirit, professionalism, prompt service, and kindness to all. Further, I expect to develop an enduring relationship with our new-found friends. For Diana and Michael: it is impossible to overstate our satisfaction and delight with your passionate work, truly a gift to us all. Very truly yours, RichJun 2, 2019Verified

I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to do our maternity photos. She was so talkative, sweet, and friendly and the value of her work is next to none. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!Jul 21, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I always include every photo I take in my pricing. The memories belong to the customer, no matter the type of photo shoot. It includes a DVD of all photos taken both edited and unedited in full resolution. All people, pets and props are included in the cost, including multiple outfit changes.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It begins with a phone call to discover the clients needs. We then set up a date for the photo shoot. At the shoot, we create memories. Depending on the type of photo shoot, photos are completed, ie....realty - within the same day, headshots- within 2 to 3 days, family, engagement, etc - within 4 to 5 days, weddings - within 2 weeks. ******I always send teaser photos within a day or two to get the clients excited.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been taking photos for over 30 years and have worked with some amazing mentors. I started doing photos professionally around 20 years ago and have traveled throughout the world to create breath-taking memories. I am also a painter and have used Photoshop for at least 15 years to do my editing.
