“After having seen a million and two wedding portfolios online, Marc Edwards Photographs portfolio stood out to me from the rest.

We talked about craft beer, wines and photography packages, and he seemed so genuine, cool, and down-to-earth that I just knew right away I had found the best photographer for us. I mean, talent, charisma and funny? Win, win win! His service was by far the best we could have ever hoped for.

Photographer: Luxe Light Photography | Hair and Makeup: Michele Renee The Studio

“I was looking very closely at the low-light images, since I knew all of our reception photos would be taken in a similar setting. Once we looked through Luxe Light Photography‘s photos and the packages Christina offered, her style and pricing matched us pretty perfectly. I’m still so happy we decided to go with her!” Leah gushed. “I was pretty anxious about the pictures in general, especially because we had our engagement session later than normal. However, after that, I knew we made the right choice; Christina has a very calming presence, so you feel really relaxed working with her. That was something I didn’t even know I would value so much, but the last thing you need on your wedding day is anyone, especially a vendor, adding to the chaos. I get giddy when I think about our wedding photos; it’s actually been really difficult trying to decide which ones to print because there are so many that we just love.”
