There are so many to choose from, and they all turned out great! I would say my favorite pictures are of the wedding party in between the wedding and the reception. Everyone had a great time and the photos really reflect that!
Paul and Tammy are so easy going and just made everyone feel to comfortable and relaxed. Other than the portraits and some of the candid shots when they were standing directly infront of you, you didn't even know they were there but they took great action shots without anyone knowing! I couldn't be more happy with all the photographs! The took amazing photographs whether they were candids, action or portraits.
There are several different photography packages to choose from. In the package we chose, it included engagement pictures, a proof album and CD/DVD of all images with full writes to those images. Paul and Tammy work as a great team together!
Everyone was so comfortable and they are fast so one no was tired of taking pictures and posing. Paul and Tammy were very organized and everything went very smoothly. They were very socialable with everyone and everyone absolutly loved them!
What was your favorite wedding photo? My favorite wedding photos were the candid pictures taken at the reception, bar, and all throughout the day. They were discreet, but caught amazing shots! I also loved the creativity used during all photos.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? They were early showing up, but stayed out of the way while we were getting ready by doing pics of the dress, rings, flowers, etc. in the other room. During the ceremony, I don't even remember seeing where they were, but the pics tell another story. They got amazing shots from all different angles. Many candids during the day also! The best action shots are a six-shot series of my sister tackling my other sister to the dance floor during the bouquet toss---great depiction of a crazy moment!
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? I received all day photography, engagement session, copyright and DVD to engagement session and wedding photos, proof album, and album. I purchased a photo guest book for a discounted price that was a great addition to the day!
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? They were quick and did their best to get the photos needed (and them some!) without being a painstaking, long, boring process. They were personable, creative, and joked around with everyone all day to make everyone comfortable.

What was your favorite wedding photo? There was a park about a half a block away from the church with some great landscaping and play ground equipment. Paul and Tammy took us over there and set up a beautiful shot of my husband and I "relaxing" in front of some of the same kind of plants we had at the ceremony with the spire of the church in the background...it was one of MANY favorite shots during the day.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Everything went off without a hitch. As we were looking through some of our wedding photos after the fact we were finding some shots that we didn't even know they had gotten because we didn't see the photographers at all! They did such a great job of capturing our day without even seeming to.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? What didn't our package include? We had a wedding on a budget (>$5000 for EVERYTHING), and so didn't get anything close to their most expensive package, but still got star treatment. We had an engagement session, 7+ hours of photography at at least 4 different locations on the day of the wedding, two photographers the whole day, and best of all these guys have a great philosophy that its your day and your photos, so getting CDs of our images was included in our package. We didn't have to negotiate for this at all, which was really important to us, since with some photographers that can cost upwards of $100 per image. Thankfully this is NOT the case with Red Door Photo & Design!
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? It was really, REALLY hot on the day of our wedding. We had originally planned to take photos outside by a nearby pond, but due to the heat, they made special arrangements with the hotel we were staying at to go back there after the "bride and groom reveal" to take photos inside where there was air conditioning! They were so flexible and FUN to work with! Besides the food, we got the most compliments on how FUN our photographers were! You really just can't go wrong with Red Door Photo!
