When we started planning our wedding, people consistently talked about the photographer. Either how great they are or more so the horror stories…After all, pictures are the only thing you have to show for that day after it is all done and over with. So needless to say we did a lot of research when choosing our photographer. I am very uneasy in front of the camera so we were looking for more candid photos and a photographer who made us comfortable. We met with Ralph and his easy going fun, yet professional, personality meshed perfect with ours. During the planning process, he was always quick to respond to e-mails and questions. We greatly appreciate the time he took with us before the wedding to go over his extensive questionnaire relative to what type of pictures were important to us and the timeline of the day. We had a DIY wedding on a family member’s horse farm with a private ceremony and pig roast reception under a tent so the decor and details were important to us. We really wanted it to be casual and didn’t have many of the traditional wedding formalities. Our wedding day was perfect! We had beautiful weather and the entire day was surreal! Ralph and his crew (Greg and Gina) were so great to deal with…it was like hanging out with friends which really helped me forget the camera was there. Anytime I was feeling awkward, Ralph gave me direction, where to put my hands, where to look, etc. We had quite the adventure through fields, high grasses, sticker bushes, etc. but it was well worth it. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful! They are very picturesque but also capture the moment. It’s amazing how he captured the love and casual atmosphere through the photos. Our pictures truly tell our wedding story. We couldn’t be happier with Ralph!
