We’ve heard so many sad stories of wedding day photos not living up to expectations, but with us that’s not something you need to worry about.

When you decide to book with us (or even before… if you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!) we are with you every step of the way. We are involved in your planning process. We meet with you and make sure we are the right fit for you. Your wedding package is completely customization to fit exactly what you want. All of the photo and video editing are done in-house by us so we approve every image you receive and make sure it’s up to our standards. After all, we are artists and we want to deliver what you are expecting. And to us- editing is a part of our ART!

We see your wedding venue with you (unless it is more than 2 hours from Philly) BEFORE the day of your wedding and we are already planning amazing shots together, customized to your venue, your style and whatever lighting situation we will run into. Sometimes an unforeseen emergency or crisis CAN happen on your wedding day (the chances are very very small, please don’t let that scare you. But sure anything can happen) and we step up and help you solve your problem! We are in cahoots with your wedding/ venue coordinator and help take care of issues before you even know about them. We do all these things because we care about our clients.

Client Love

I know I’ve stated over and over again how much we love our clients and how important it is for them (YOU) to love us. I cannot stress this matter enough! The connection we have is so important to make sure you have a BLAST on your wedding day. Because guess what, we’re going to have a really great time too! Here are just a couple of the many love letters we have received from real past clients thanking us for our services and telling us a bit about why they chose us:

When we were first looking for a photographer price was definitely an important factor. Not only that, but we didn’t want the run of the mill posey generic wedding photos, so style was the second biggest factor. My husband and I are more laid back and fun and we wanted a photographer to capture our personalities! Once we started meeting in person (we narrowed it down to two after lots of research), it was important to have a connection with the photographer(s). The other photographer we met with was very nice and we knew she would do a good job, but since we met with Cat and Al right after that there was no competition. Meeting Cat and Al felt like hanging out with friends that we had many times before. They have an amazing ability to make you feel immediately comfortable and you knew they had your back. We knew on our wedding day we’d want people that would not only capture our wedding, but would participate and have fun too!  –Vicki

When I was first looking for a photographer/videographer I was searching on a broad scale.  I wasn’t sure specifically what I wanted but I knew what I didn’t want. Style and the relationship/connection was my top priority. Closely followed by price and I was only originally looking for photographers. I pretty much needed someone to sell themselves to me (make me pick them) because the process was so overwhelming. Once I started searching in catalogs and online I realized I wanted someone that took candid shots that’s weren’t so posed and stiff. I wanted the photographers to capture our fun personalities. By the time we met the photographers in person we had already liked their style. That had gotten them the face to face meeting. At that point me wanted to have the right feeling. See if we meshed well enough to work together. I wanted someone who would listen to me when I really wanted a shot but had a professional eye to tell me if it wouldn’t work the way I thought it would or to create a better shot. Honestly, the moment I met them I just knew. It was a nonchalant meeting at a coffee shop. I saw them and they gave us hugs like we were old friends. The feeling I got was warm and comfortable. It didn’t take long for my husband and I to agree! They were the overall package!  –Jamie
