There were so many good ones, I have to mention two. Chris shot this amazing candid photo of me and both of my brothers as we first opened the dance floor. I was dancing with one brother and my other brother cut in. It was a rare show of emotion from both of them and it was one of my favorite moments during the day. I was so happy to find that it had been caught on film and was a beautiful photos of all of us. Secondly, a huge thunderstorm rolled in at the end of our reception and Chris brought us outside for a few minutes to shoot some bride and groom shots. He captured a very romantic moment between us with a beautiful sunset and stormy sky in the background. It was like out of a movie.
All of our photos were excellent. The photographers moved in and out of the crowds undetected while continuing to be present during all of our most important moments. The word I would use to discribe them would be "stealth".
The package the we ordered included two photographers for nine hours, an album for us and two parent albums. One huge incentive for us was that we are able to keep our proofs.
Chris has a wonderful, easygoing demeanor. He asked the right questions and addressed all of our concerns before the big day. He was very comfortable with us and our families and made the guests feel welcome and included in the event. Throughout the event, both photographers kept the wonderful balance of involvement without stealing the spotlight.
They were equally wonderful with the children involved in our wedding and took some wonderful shots that we will enjoy for years to come.

Review: Baltazar Photography - No other choice for a photographer!!
What was your favorite wedding photo? Too many favorite pictures to choose from! From the dreamy black and white photo under the Banyon Tree, to the giggling picture of my husband and I on the beach, and the overhead group hug shot at the end of the reception!! I just loved so many of the photos.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? I absolutely loved looking at the photos when they came back! I couldn't believe some of the shots because I don't know when Chris and Mao even shot them!! They were great with instruction during the posed shots, but not aggressive; they have this wonderful, warm personality that made me relax immediately and enjoy shooting with them.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? I unfortunately did not take advantage of Baltazar Photography for an engagement session - I didn't do an engagement session with anyone. I have yet to order my photo album, but plan on it shortly! What I really appreciate about Baltazar Photography is that Chris is very flexible and willing to work with the client.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? The photographers at Baltazar Photography have very inviting, warm personalities that make you relax immediately. They aren't intrusive or pushy, and if know when and how to make a "gentle recommendation" to get the shot that I (the bride) requested. My brother is famous for his forced, goofy smile, but the photographers had us laughing so my brother had a real smile during the pictures!! This was a great treat for my mother!!
