My favorite picture is one of Coti looking on as I walked down the aisle. I kind of wish that I was captured in the same shot so the viewers knew what he was looking at, but I know. The picture reminds that he loves me and how comfortable he was on our wedding day.
We had a lot of variations of posed shots. Our pictures were taken before Amber and Steve were married so Amber's mother was taking pictures with her instead. Between the two of them, their pictures had some variety that we were pleased with. They were able to take some candid shots up close without getting in anyone's way.
We had already taken engagement pictures. Her price was very reasonable for the quality of photos. We were able to purchase any of the photos that we wanted.
Amber was very personable and kept the mood light. She made sure that everyone knew they were to be celebrating on our wedding day. She always was smiling which in turn caused her subjects to smile.
What was your favorite wedding photo? My new husband and I walking through the woods, away from the camera, hand-in-hand.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Amber took a number of candid as well as posed shots. I never even noticed her when she was snapping candids! There were many great moments that she caught on camera. Great to have these.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We ordered a number of prints - small ones for an album that we decided to put together ourselves, plus some larger ones to frame. Amber offered different types of packages at different price points. We had a separate engagement session that was great! Amber spent a few hours with us on the beach and took loads of really great photos. We ordered a bunch of those, too!
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Amber is very personable and easy to work with. She has some great creative ideas for poses, and gives good direction. It was a collaborative process, where she'd make suggestions and so would we. We're very happy with the results and would definitely work with Amber again, and would recommend her highly.
What was your favorite wedding photo? My favorite picture is the one where Nick is holding me, and we are both laughing. It is very real, and captures our true personality.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? They were able to take our pictures without us even noticing it at times. They were able to let us enjoy our day, and capture the moments at the same time. While Amber was taking out pictures from one perspective, Steve was somewhere else getting another angle. Looking back through the pictures I find some really candid shots, that explain our day perfectly.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We were given 8 hours of photos, and all the digitals on CD.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? The atmosphere was very relaxed, and nobody felt pressured. Amber was able to show examples of the poses desired, and went with what felt most comfortable to us.
