My Vision of the Ideal Photographer


When we first started planning our wedding, we knew that photography was one of the most important aspects. We wanted to be sure that all the most important memories are captured, and in a way that represented our true personality and style. After looking through MANY photographer websites and blogs, I was convinced that Craig had the perfect style. The colors just pop in all his pictures, and I could always see the energy of the moment captured in each photo. From our initial meeting with him, I knew we had found the perfect match, both stylistically and personality-wise.

During our engagement session, we really got to know him and were so excited when he came up with one creative idea after another! We had never had professional photos taken of us so we weren’t sure what to expect, but Craig’s disarming style helped us loosen up quickly – and that’s when he was able to get some of our favorite shots! He really helped us feel at ease and it’s perfectly evident in every photo.

Throughout the year before our wedding I would frequent his blog and send him little notes when I saw pictures of other weddings he had shot that I REALLY liked. When our wedding finally arrived I discovered that he had been making notes of all those comments so that he could be sure to incorporate those elements into our own photos. But his creative and professional personality was what many of guests commented on. They were amazed at how he was able to seamlessly integrate himself into the ceremony and reception without being too obtrusive. That was just one of the many little touches that showed us how much he cared about our individual event.

We received RAVE reviews from our family and friends after the wedding day when they finally saw the photos… Without a doubt, between his photographic style and his personality, Craig fulfilled my vision of an ideal photographer. We have the most amazing engagement and wedding photos, and had a lot of fun with him along the way.
