Gallery of Avenue Photo
At our first meeting, we were instantly amazed by how fast we were at ease with her. Our personalities really jived, we could not stop laughing and chatting. We left feeling like she needed to be part of our wedding team, almost instantly. And to add to the fun, the work by Avenue Photo is outstanding; there is a beautiful airy, clear light that exudes from their photography, a beautiful artistry to the style that we wanted captured as part of our wedding memories.
We had our engagement session in Fall 2017. Similar to our consultation, Margaret eased us into the photos. She helped us feel comfortable (much of the laughter continued), guided us through poses, and got to know us as a couple which was really sweet. The session was a nice way to build the relationship with Margaret and “practice” for our wedding photos. Also really love that Margaret spends the time to feature the sneak peek photos on her blog with a thoughtfully written write-up. Love the personal touch and reading through her perspective.
Choosing a wedding day location for photos in the city proved to be a bit challenging, but Margaret helped ease our minds. She phoned us a few days before the big day to talk through some details, see if we had any questions, and provided amazing advice which was so appreciated!
We woke up on our wedding day to a pretty significant downpour, however, that did not dampen our spirits. And as fate would have it, post ceremony the rain had cleared just in time for our bridal party/bride & groom photos. Margaret arrived with her colleague Adam promptly the morning of our wedding. Both the groom’s and bride’s parties had a fantastic time with the photographers (Avenue Photo) and videographers (Life’s Reel). Both photo/video teams were made up of such great friendly professional people, who seemed to also mesh well together and truly made the day fun and enjoyable. They worked in the background as the events unfolded, gave us tips for the posed captures, and led us through catching our special moments. The fun continued through a wonderful jam-packed evening; having Margaret and Adam there to catch all the details, those we caught and those we missed, was spectacular. They were even flexible enough to let us add-on an additional half-hour to catch our ‘first’ dance prior to leaving.
Margaret surprised us post wedding with a few sneak peek shots (incl the blog sneak peek) and with a special delivery of the full collection. Turn around time was so quick, though we were awaiting to see the captures with such high anticipation! We received a USB with digital copies, an online gallery to help us conveniently share with family/friends, and a thoughtful sweet wedding gift with a selection of our printed photos in a beautiful glass/gold keepsake box. We are so moved and incredibly pleased and grateful to see all the stunning photos and have these memorable keepsakes. We are confident that the next phase in creating our wedding album will continue to be the fun enjoyable process that it has been to date.
Margaret and Adam really helped us learn that a truly exceptional photographer can capture amazing photos and make it work optimally, regardless of the surroundings. It is the essence of the people: the love, playfulness, personalities that end up being the focal point and it resonates so true in their work. We are so glad of our choice to have Avenue Photo as part of our wedding journey - their eye for detail, professionalism, and fun genuine personalities and care are so appreciated and made all the difference. Thank you so very much with all our hearts for making this such an awesome memorable experience!! xoxo, Cristina and Patrick
