I found out about BG Productions on The Knots website. They had great reviews and their prices were very affordable. We had met with one or two other photographers, they seemed nice. But when we met Al and Cat at our coffee shop, my now husband and I were blown away. They were just the nicest genuine people EVER! Their portfolios and videos were so amazing, we got both!
We met every so often to go over plans. Cat was very helpful and gave good advise. They sent us care packages with things to keep calm about a month or two before the wedding, just as all wedding problems came down on us. The day of the wedding, when I was feeling super anxious, they sent everyone out of the room and it was just the three of us. They made me feel so much better, and they got some amazing shots in!
My husband and I received our photos yesterday and they really captured every single moment that day. I honestly don't know how to choose my favorite, they are all fantastic! They were on the dance floor part of the party, taking photos. I am amazed at our dancing shots. We had over 200 guests and I am pretty sure they captured all of them doing the Hora.
I would absolutely recommend BG Productions to any one who needs a photographer. I want to thank Cat, Al, and Collen for making our day so memorable. We can't wait to see the video! Choosing BG Productions was one of the best decisions we ever made!
Thank you again for everything!

We are so happy we picked Cat and Al from BG Productions as our wedding photographers! They captured our special day beautifully from start to finish. They were completely professional to work with, yet fun, creative and quirky. They brought great energy to our wedding- they knew when we needed to have our nerves calmed, knew when we needed a moment to ourselves, and knew when it was time to let loose and have fun! Nothing felt forced or too posed with them and they found a way of making sure the photos were all about us and just what we wanted. They were more than just photographers; they were full of advice and guidance that made our big day go off without a hitch. We can't stop looking at our wedding photos (which came very soon after the wedding), even though we've had them for some time now. Their photos speak for themselves, but I can't say enough about how nice it was to work with such a great couple.
Also, this review wouldn't be complete without mentioning the amazing BG Booth! The BG Booth is BG's version of a traditional photo booth—except it is so much more fun! We have had so many guests tell us how much fun they had with the BG Booth and they (and we) all loved seeing the posts from the booth in the days after the wedding. We were en route to our honeymoon when Cat posted them and we could barely rip ourselves away from the computer in the airport because it was so fun to relive the night and see all the hilarious and fun pictures that people took. There were a few things that made it way better than a regular photo booth: 1) it was much less expensive! (great if you are trying to stay on budget) 2) it fits way more people (we got a hilarious picture of my dad's whole family) and 3) the photos turn out so much better because you have an actual professional photographer taking them who can make sure that everyone is in the frame and smiling, etc. We weren't sure about the BG Booth at first, but we were so, so happy we decided to add it at the last minute. I definitely recommend it!

I have said it a million times... BG Productions was THE BEST decision we made when it came to our wedding! From our very first sit down with BG we knew they would take care of us. I really tried to do as much as possible for our wedding to save money but the one thing I was adamant about was great pictures. I couldn't help but worry because it seemed like the only thing I really couldn't do myself, at all! BG knew exactly how I felt, which is why they took time to get to know us, asked us all the right questions, and most importantly made sure they knew exactly what we were looking for in our wedding photo's. I have never witnessed a team like BG work so well together. They compliment each other so well in their creativity and expertise. They are always sharing their thoughts as the shoot is going on to make sure they are both capturing the best shots. After our engagement shots were revealed, I knew we had nothing to worry about and they knew exactly what we wanted. From beginning to end they were amazing and the results were far above and beyond what we had imagined. We love BG Productions and so does our family! We recommend BG to anyone that is looking for THE PERFECT picture. We will definitely be life-long clients of theirs!!!!

BG is awesome! Not only did they do a fabulous job on photography and videography, but they became like family. Our guests commented afterwards about how friendly Cathie and Al were and how they became part of the party while still doing their job well and maintaining professionalism. They also were never intrusive or made us feel too awkwardly on display. Thank you BG for a wonderful experience and we can't wait to see you again!

We hired Cathie and Al to capture our wedding day memories both with photography and videography! From the moment we met them, we knew that they could be the only people we would want to be with us on our day.
After a wonderful engagement shoot that we booked them for, our wedding day came. They spent at least 8 hours with us, and went above and beyond!
Having just received our photographs, wedding video and short film, I can certainly attest that their work is nothing short of amazing! Cathie captured so many wonderful shots of our families, the bridal party, the reception and ourselves; while Al made us feel like we were the stars of our very own movie! Their talent, dedication, creativity and professionalism is unmatched! We will not only recommend BG Productions to our family and friends, but we will continue to use them to capture all of those important milestones in our lives :)

Our Wedding was October 29, 2011. I reached out to BG Productions right away after reading reviews from The Knot. I spoke to Cathie and felt immediately comfortable from our phone conversation. We scheduled an appointment to meet at a local Starbucks. Cathie (Photographer) and Al (Videographer) were so interested in learning about Andy and me. It felt to me as if I were hanging out with friends while telling them about our life together. They then proceeded to ask me questions and bring up ideas I had never even thought of. It inspired me and assured me that this Happy Couple will be sure to make me and Andy a Happy Couple on our Special Day. Not to mention their Photo/Video Package was priced perfectly.
As the Wedding, starting approaching, Cathie and Al continued to keep in touch as I continued to follow their work on Facebook. They always have a Sneak Peak after their couples Weddings. I enjoyed reading all of their lovely comments with the photos. It gave me chills each time I read their postings. I couldn’t wait to be the Bride and Groom they spoke so warmly about.
Our Day finally came! It snowed in October in PA for the first time in 70 years. Cathie and Al showed up, excited about how fun the photos will be with the pretty snow. They were right! Cathie and Al immediately fit into our day, as if they were part of the family. They constantly assured me as the day went on. I keep picturing Cathie during our first dance…as we were dancing; I looked down and saw Cathie lying on her side taking the most unbelievable shots. They controlled our friends and family and were by my side throughout the night. I can’t express my appreciation to Cathie and Al and am all teared up now with emotions as they truly are now so special to me.
BG Productions are true artists and will hold a special place in our hearts forever. Thank you for making our day all it could be!
Love, Katie & Andy

I loved working with Cathie & Al they were amazing and they really take the time to listen to what you want, their prices are affordable and they show up and take away your wedding jitters. I was recommended from a friend to use them and I am so happy that I did, I look forward to using them in the future for other pictures!!

Cathie and Al are the dream photo/video duo. They are SO incredibly talented at what they do and are 100% focused on you as a couple. They really hone in on your personalities and they take pictures that make you feel like you are experiencing your wedding day every time you look at them. I highly, highly recommend adding a video component to your package. Al is so incredibly talented and the day really does fly by. I'm so lucky to have a video that I can look back on to see all of the special moments of that day.
Cathie and Al really focus on the personal connection they have to their clients. To do this, they even have a client appreciation party every spring to thank future and former clients for allowing them to be a part of their day. Once you have Cathie and Al at your wedding, you'll feel like you need to throw them a party! My husband and I truly feel blessed that we were able to find Cathie and Al...we couldn't be happier with our photos, video, and new found friends!

#1. Cat & Al Berrey-Green are the coolest people we have ever met.
#2. Cat & Al Berrey-Green are the best photographers we have ever met.
I cannot begin to explain how AWESOME this husband and wife team is! Firstly, they are so wonderfully down to earth, funny, and easy to work with. My family is still talking about how cool the photographers were at our wedding! Second, they go wayyy above and beyond the duties of a photographer. They helped with everything the day of, cheered us on when things got hectic, kept our crazy families under control, and even stole us away for an end of the night shoot so we could have some time alone together. Oh yea, and I guess I should mention how INCREDIBLE the photos are! Cat matched our whimsical vintage style perfectly, she captured every beautiful moment. I wish I could post some of the photos, they could be in a bridal magazine. They listened to what we wanted and their artistic style couldn't have matched ours better. Thank you Cat & Al, for making our wedding absolutely perfect. xo Clare & John

BG productions was the best decision we made for our wedding!!!!!!(other than my husband) It was meant to be that we found them, and knew right away. We found them online through posts of Facebook and we choose them because of their experience at our venue, the varied styles, and the price was right!
When we met Cathie and Al, they knew our vision, the feel of the wedding, and we knew they could portray our wedding day exactly how we wanted to remember it for years to come. Leading up to our big day, we had a e-session in Chinatown, to get familiar with having our pictures taken and posing. They were awesome! We felt so comfortable and the pictures turned out unbelievable! The colors, the city feel of the pictures, and we delighted how they really captured our love. They made us feel relaxed, not rushed and talked us through every pose, and after this I had no doubt our wedding photos would be the best ever!!!!
They communicate with you every step of the way listening to all my last minute concerns of rain and helping with any ideas I needed. Their experience and passion really show through! On our wedding day they came to calm me down as a storm swept through and kept everyone out of our way as we went to out “first see” moment. I loved our first see, it was very intimate, and Cathie and Al were the right people to have capture that moment!! Throughout the day they were there to take the best shots and I loved that they really enjoyed our wedding, and they were our guests!!! They even let us sneak away for our last pictures of the night, after dancing all night, we look tired and happy and I know they captured every emotion of that day. They were awesome that day and impressed us and our family even more by posting sneak pictures the same night, and within the next day posting 20 sneak pictures!!!! When we got our photos everything was perfect including the wrapping of the package, to the pictures on the cover. There were so many great shots and I loved the editing that really made our pictures unique. We got the coolest mini accordion book, its the perfect brag book that I will show to anybody who will look!!!!! I tell everyone who will listen that we have the best photographers ever and we cant wait for all the many more times to see them and have them capture moments in our lives.

I have nothing but good things to say about Cathie & Al. We have only seen 3 mintues of our wedding video and a handful of photos and they are already the best I have ever seen. They were professional, creative, kind and helpful throughout planning and the day of our wedding, even showing up a half hour early when we had to shift many things around the day of due to Hurricane Irene. We are beyond thrilled with everything about them!
