We used Carina Photographics to shoot our wedding. Planning for the day was easy with Joanna. It actually made the rest of our wedding planning easier! We used her checklist to make sure we had everything in order, and when we got together to plan the shots for the day, she had lots of helpful advice about when to do what and when to shoot what. It helped us make a few decisions we were on the fence about. It was nice to use the photo shoot schedule as a framework for planning the rest of the day. Piece of cake.
The big day finally came and Joanna and her assistant were on top of everything. It's clear they've done this many times before because they didn't miss a beat and they certainly didn't miss any photo opportunities. Even the big family group photos went quickly and easily. After that, we just enjoyed ourselves at the ceremony and they just blended in and captured the rest of the evening. Everything went really well.
We didn't have to wait very long at all before we could start looking at our photos online. We were blown away at how stunning the photos were. She is a rare talent and if you can get her for your wedding, you should!
We visited her studio and picked out some materials for our photo album. She has tons of examples to look at and a great lounge area in her studio. She offered us refreshments (again, lots to choose from!) so I drank a craft beer and my wife had a glass of wine. That was a nice touch. :) Our album looked even better than we had expected and the canvas looks great hanging in our living room.
We will use Carina Photographics for all of our photography needs. I don't write many reviews, but Carina is worth it. Everyone should know how great they are!
