Modern and Creative Wedding Photography
What was your favorite wedding photo?
Our favorite photo is a mostly black and white pic from ground level with my wifes red rose bouquet in the foreground and my wife and I in the background. The majority of the photo is black and white but the red bouquet is in full color and really stands out! Very creative and it makes a great picture. We had it blown up and put on canvas and it looks great!
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?
We didn't have a super formal wedding so it was nice to see that Jose mingled well with our family and friends. He was great with action shots during the actual ceremony and had some good ideas for caputuring interesting shots after the ceremony. This was in addtion to the standard family pics.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
All our pics were loaded onto Joy's of Life photography website and we have ample time after our honeymoon to look at all the pictures and decide which we wanted and what quantity. Our family also was able to see the pics on the website and order any they were interested in keeping. One nice thing is the website also allows you to purchase and download immediately digital copies of any pic you want.
We had the same company do our engagement pics and those came out great also! Jose has interesting ideas for staging us within different backgrounds. Our pictures were all outdoors at a lavendar farm near sunset and the various backgrounds that setting provided came out great! Can't tell in the pics but the smell of the area was wonderful tool :)
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
Jose is very easy going and very accomodating to any specific picture requested. He adapts to last minute changes easily and puts everyone at ease. I never worried about how the pictures were coming out. He has a good sense of humor and put folks at ease as we went through the formal pics. We had one relatively young child included in a couple of the pics and he took the time to try to get her attention at the right time along with a big smile!
