I really didn't know what to expect from planning a wedding. But I knew that I wanted the best photo and video, because those are the only tangible memories you can look back on! I am so happy I went with Serendipity Photography. Alice and Eric were so easy going and made my husband and I feel so comfortable. From our initial engagement photo session, they were able to make us laugh and smile in such a natural way that we got so many compliments from people that our photos showed our true selves in such an effortless way. And because our wedding was actually a two-day event, things got chaotic in our planning. But Alice and Eric went with all the last minute changes so calmly and ALWAYS with a smile. Their respect and positive attitude towards myself and our entire family was amazing. Even our videographers came up to us at then end of our reception and tell us how happy they were to work with Alice and Eric because they were able to share the time and space to get the shots they needed. With them being a husband and wife team, you can definitely tell they knew how to work together for the benefit of the bride and groom. Even the secondary photographers they sent to take pre-wedding photos were so respectful and kind. They were so much fun to work with and I would definitely credit them to the smiles we had on camera. Also, because our wedding involved multiple ceremonies, things got confusing and we had no idea what we were doing. But they actually made our photos look like it was a smooth process. My bridesmaids would tell me that they didn't remember some parts of the ceremony happening because of the chaos. But seeing the photos, it looked like we knew exactly what was going on.
But most importantly, the quality of their work was better than I could ever have imagined. They can do all the posed shots you want and of course they come out great. But the candid ones that you probably thought no one saw or even happened; they were able to capture. When we received our wedding photos, our families sat there for hours reliving the entire wedding. The pictures were crisp, sharp, with vibrant colors. And really, the best part was seeing how happy my father was to see them. He is the most serious person I know, and hardly ever smiles. But when he saw our wedding photos, he smiled and laughed to the point where I cried just seeing how happy he was.
There are so many good things I have to say about Serendipity, which is why it took me so long to think of what to write. Each step of the way, they've been amazing. I cannot stress enough to my friends how happy I was with the level of service and quality of work we received from Serendipity. I cannot imagine going with anyone else. I absolutely believe they were worth every penny.
P.S. They are very reasonable in their timing when it comes to getting your proofs ready for viewing. I don't know how long other companies are, but I got my wedding proofs before some of my friends that got married nearly a year before me because they went with a different company. I was able to show family members previews of our photos before they left on their flights back home after the wedding.
Every bride has one thing that is their "have to have" for their wedding. Mine was Serendipity. The wedding day flew by and I focused on having fun and marrying the man of my dreams. I saw Alice and Eric periodically through the night, but never thought much of it.. until the next day. I have been anticipating my photos since my wedding day, and I was nervous how they would turn out because I was focusing on my wedding rather than posing for perfect pictures. My wedding photos are amazing... more than i could ever ask for. Alice and Eric captured every moment, even those I did not even know were happening, and their attention to detail is phenomenal. They were always present through every moment of the wedding, but never once stopped a moment or "intruded" on the party. Honestly, after engagement pictures and working with them throughout the day, they were like guests by the end of the night. If there is one area you are willing to "splurge," make sure it is Serendipity... they are worth every penny.. and then some.
First off, we would like to apologize to Eric and Alice for being late with this review.
Eric and Alice were GREAT! from the extra attention and brilliant creativity they gave us before the wedding getting ready at the Four Seasons to their attentiveness, attention to detail and assistance with suggestion at the wedding and reception. We looked at and spoke to at least a dozen photographers before we made the decision to choose Eric and Alice and without a doubt made the best decision! If you want creativity, professionalism and just good people for a competitive / reasonable price you NEED to hire Serendipity Photography!
Jeff & Mirnada!
Working with Alice and Eric of Serendipity was easy-breezy! They are masters of their art and they seem to have fun doing it. We've already gotten our proofs and I couldn't be happier! So much of our wedding and reception were captured in the candid moments. I cannot thank them enough for their work.
I love Alice and Eric. They are a cute married couple that works are to make sure your wedding day is perfect. They always got back to me quickly, were so easy to work with, and really know how to capture a great shot. They have an amazing eye for detail. My photos were even featured in Houston Lifestyle Mag! Thanks Eric and Alice for everything!
Alice and Eric are the best! They were so incredibly easy to work with, accommodating and make sure that we got the exact shots we requested. You couldn't even tell they were there at the wedding. Our photos were better than anything we could have ever imagined. I took bridal portraits with them as well.
My sister also used them for her wedding and engagement photos.
I cannot say enough good things about Serendipity Photography and will gladly recommend them to anyone that needs a photographer. They are the whole package: Professional, friendly, and top notch photographs.
We loved working with Eric and Alice on our big day! They are professional, so easy to work with, and made our day so special. The photos also turned out to be amazing, and we've received so many complements from our friends and family! Eric and Alice are the best photographers, and I highly recommend Serendipity Photography!
I cant say enough good things about Serendipity Photography. We love-love both our engagement and wedding photos. In addition to that (which is the main point!) We had some very drunk groomsmen and both photographers were very patient with everyone. They also dealt with the annoyance of all the guests jumping in front of them to take pictures with their phones etc. (which is so annoying! Let the professionals do their job. Sigh.) They commincated well with me through the day and captured every moment perfectly and didnt miss anything.
Alice and Eric were such a pleasure to work with. They made us feel completely comfortable from the very beginning with our engagement pictures and we have gotten tons of complements on the wedding day pics. They are both very professional, nice and do great work! Definitely highly recommend Serendipity Photography!
My husband and I were really satisfied with Eric and Alice's services. From the beginning, they were such a pleasure to work with. Alice answered all of our e-mails promptly. They were also flexible with our package options since we already had our portraits taken in Italy during our engagement. Eric truly covered every moment and angle on our wedding day. He even pulled me aside during the reception and made sure he covered all of the portraits I requested. We received our proofs recently and we are very excited to see the finished product, which I'm sure we won't be disappointed.
Because their skills as photographers speak for themselves when you look at the photos they produce, my review will focus on my experience with using Alice and Eric, founders of Serendipity Photography. every step of the way in the entire process, from answering questions, being flexible about the timing of telephone calls (I was living in Germany when planning the wedding), to seeking out the perfect spot for our first look, to finalizing the final touches on our wedding album, Alice and Eric were attentive and professional. Their goal was to ensure that we were happy with the service they provided along with the quality of the photographs. They really went the extra mile, especially since the wedding was a destination wedding, and we lived remotely. Never once did I feel that the distance with planning, execution, or wrapping up caused any additional difficulties in getting great service and a great product. The proved to be very flexible given our situation. I am completely satisfied with their service and absolutely love the end product. I would hire them again were I to do it all over again.
We were referred to Serendipity by one of our friends (Vic and Muy) who used them for their wedding. For us, photos and video was the most important part of the wedding because that is all we will have to remember our special day. We saw the pictures Serendipity took for our friends' wedding and its just beautiful. They were able to capture the moments beautifully and most importantly naturally. I just wanna say that Serendipity was the easiest part of the wedding. Eric and Alice are super nice and polite. They are very good at returning emails and phone calls within 24 hours which is a must have for me. Alot of times it takes some of these vendors a few days to response, but Eric and Alice werent like that. If they didnt have an answer immediately they would still respond and acknowledge that they received your message and is working on getting an answer for you. It was really stressful planning, and Serendipity made everything easier. They were able to provide me with their list of trusted vendors and gave me advice through out the whole planning process. It was like having a photographer and wedding planner at the same time. Our family and friends loved our engagement photos. Eric and Alice was able to capture our smiles and laughter naturally. On the day of the wedding, my family met them for the first time and loved them (my sister is planning to book them as soon as she has a wedding date set). They were very professional and polite. They helped keep time and moved the wedding along. They remained calmed and professional throughout the whole process even in times of chaos. They were able to capture the important moments beautifully. The turn around time for the proofs was very reasonable if not alot better than some of the other photo vendors my friends booked. When we received our engagement proofs (about a week after the shoot) we were speechless. We just couldnt stop looking at them and it was just so hard to pick just 20 pictures. The pictures were really sharp and the colors were impressive. We were shocked to receive an app with the highlights of the wedding just a few days after the wedding. Serendipity truly captured the moments. The colors were vibrant and each shot was captured naturally. My family cannot stop looking at the pictures and talking about their service during the wedding. I love and appreciate everything they done for us. I would highly recommend Serendipity to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. They are the professional, respectful, and experienced. They are worth every penny we paid and the easiest part of the wedding.
We used Serendipity to photograph our backyard country wedding and I could not be more happy with my pictures! We did a lot of DIY since we had over a year to plan and they captured every detail! They got every shot I wanted and more. I hunted for photographers for months and met with many studios to look at portfolios. Serendipity surpassed their competition with their originality and quality. They are very professional! I didn't even notice that they were there and they were very respectful when us girls were getting dressed. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. After the wedding, all you have to remember the day are your pictures. If you want the best then choose Serendipity. We splurged to get them and it was so worth it. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing their pictures are!
Alice and Eric are wonderful, creative photographers!! They have such a unique gift and amazing talents that far exceeds my husband's and my expectations. We are so awkward in front of the camera, but Alice and Eric makes us feel so much at ease. We love all the candid photos, their meticulous attention to details, their strive for perfection and passion to produce unique photos. They are so accommodating and know they best places to take photos. We feel so lucky and honored to have them part of our wedding, to capture wonderful memories that we will be able to share for generations to come. Thank you so much, Alice and Eric!! We love you both and your team!
They were incredibly profession. Easy to get in contact with and quick to respond. The photographs are high tech and make everything easy to access. Very fast! Will take every shot you request. The photographers have a wonderful eye for what to be taking shots of. I would use them again!
From when we first emailed them to inquire about prices, through our engagement photos and our wedding day, and after the fact, Alice and Eric have just been awesome. They are absolute pleasures to work with - and needless to say - are amazingly talented photographers. In the words of my father-in-law about out wedding proofs, "These are the best pictures I have ever seen."
I'd also add that they are professionals to the utmost degree. Just for example, at one of our wedding events, which was held in Webster, Texas on a Friday at 6:00 PM (you can imagine the traffic), even close family members that were supposed to be there early came late, but Eric and, one of Serendipity's associate photographers, Quentin, were there right on time.
One last tidbit - for those couples that might be looking for photographers with South Asian wedding experience, Serendipity has you covered there too for sure! We had a traditional Hindu wedding (I am not Indian), and so I had no idea what was going on more than half the time - but more than once, Eric was able to chime in when no one else was around and tell me what was up. ;) Needless to say, they're familiar with the flow of the events and captured all of the moments we were hoping would be captured.
I couldn't recommend these guys enough.
Alice and Eric are amazing photographers who captured every moment of our special day beautifully. They were always professional, yet fun, energetic, and creative. Their ideas molded to what you envisioned your pictures to look like. They are talented, trustworthy, and therefore ease any extra anxiety you have about your big day. Their ability to beautifully capture every moment is simply amazing. They do a superb job, and my husband, family members and I are so happy that we chose them!
Alice and Eric really weren't kidding when they said they get great action shots! One of our favorite photos was of fireworks going off in the background. But they're also very talented in still shots. I had a horrible makeup trial that made me look like a circus vampire and yet they managed to make me look decent. They took maybe like 800 pictures, and I think I liked over 200 pictures, which is pretty amazing for me. Very timely, very curteous, quick to respond to questions. A little pricey compared to some of the other vendors we considered, but it's your wedding, and mine went by in a blur and I really needed the pictures to remind me of what happened, so I felt this was good money spent.
Alice and Eric are young, fun, hip, and completely professional. They are laid back and easygoing to work with, and help put you at ease during your photo shoots. They find great light and take beautiful photos. On our wedding day, they also took several fantastic photos "behind the scenes" that I didn't even realize until the proofs came out -- and worked quickly and efficiently throughout the day, catching lots of great candid shots. They worked so efficiently that we were even able to get in an extra impromptu "bridal portrait" session at the church on the day of the wedding. We really appreciated how quickly they got all the photo proofs to us for both our engagement session and for the wedding -- it only took a couple of weeks each time. In addition, just 3 days after the wedding, they sent us a wonderful gift of a wedding photo highlight album that we could share with family and friends. Everyone in our wedding party was impressed with their work, and we have gotten amazing comments to the photos on Facebook. :) Serendipity has a number of different wedding photo packages that can suit a variety of needs. I also enjoyed their initial presentation where they displayed their mad photoshop skills. :) Very highly recommended!
After interviewing several photographers in Houston/Sugar Land area, I fell in love with Eric and Alice. When you conduct interviews, you aren't just critiquing them for their skills, but how they connect with you on a personal level... and that's exactly what Eric and Alice did for my husband and I. We connected. They were people that I could see being my friends and also knowing what I wanted to capture on my special day. They did a great job capturing emotions that I want to look back on and remember and relive every time I look at the pictures. It was a team effort to be able to look great and have beautiful pictures taken at the very right moment. Because of Eric and Alice's talent, I can always look at my pictures and remember my special day. If you want a team that understands what kind of pictures you want and has a very talented eye, Serendipity is the one!!
