We wanted artistic flair in our wedding photos, and choosing the right photographer was the most careful decision that we made. We spent months poring over photographer portfolios and met with several photographers before choosing Luke and Bree. Their work stood out as touching... Read More and artistic, and their high level of organization and easygoing personalities made it easy to work with them. Most of all, we liked that they always shoot as a pair, as opposed to most photographers who bring in an anonymous second photographer who we have to trust blindly. Coordinating with them was always easy. Our venue was right at the edge of their 100-mile same day travel radius, and they had no problem changing their contract for us to remove ambiguity.They communicated well with our wedding planner and gave us plenty of notice about anything that we needed to do for them. (this is invaluable when juggling several vendors and staggered payments.) They also sent us a preview of our wedding photos four days after the event, so we had something to show our families immediately. They were consistently prompt and attentive, and they earned our trust at every step of the process. The photography sessions themselves were enjoyable. We had an engagement photo session, which allowed us to get used to each other as well as give them a chance to see the wedding venue, which was nearby. They are good at helping their subjects to be themselves. They are also great at managing the other guests to keep them from interfering with our photography during the wedding day, and this was particularly appreciated. We felt as though they were responding to our unique wedding and us as a couple, and this was exactly what we were hoping for from them. That said, they still exceeded our expectations. Our engagement photos were nice, with a few stand-out images, but we were stunned by the quality of the photos of the wedding itself. We have only seen a preview so far, but those images bring back the tide of emotions that surrounded us on our wedding day. So much happens so quickly in these events, and it's crucial to have a way to capture the day well enough to revisit and appreciate what actually happened. Luke and Bree accomplished this in spades, and now we have a way to cherish every detail of our wedding for the years to come. If you want to capture the precious moments of your wedding, then 1985Luke is your choice. They are artists as opposed to stock wedding photographers, and that difference will show in the photos that you get from them. They are wonderful to work with, and they give you quite a lot for their prices. Let them photograph your special day. You will never regret it.

We first fell in love with Luke and BreAnne's photos as they were the exact look we were going for. We then spoke by phone and we loved them even more! At first, they didn't have my ideal wedding date available, so I changed it and I am glad I did! We met Luke and Bre at our... Read More engagement session and just knew they were right for us. I really liked that they were a couple and you can get a male perspective and a woman's perspective in your photos. How can you go wrong when you have the complete package? Our engagement session was great and our photos were to us very quickly! Throughout the months leading to our wedding I had questions and concerns and Bre calmed all of them. Not only do they respond very quickly, they are genuinely nice and want to ease your concerns. Bre happened to work at the bridal salon that I got my dress and she was the one who urged me to try on "just one more" and it was the perfect one! She even created my accessories, which created a better bond! About 2 months before our wedding day, I received an email that had the most beautiful day-of timeline. Not only was I following the posts of wedding, family, engagement etc. sessions that they were busy with every weekend, but they took the time to send a timeline over that was pure perfection. It was so pretty, it was placed at the front of my Instagram photos and my wedding binder! Our wedding day came and there was "parking lot" traffic on the freeway. Our videographer was a bit late due to the traffic but not Luke & Bre! They were on time, ready to go and happy to be there. They really are such joyful people. It's the last hour before ceremony start time and Bre was taking photos of my bridesmaids and I. She had such a calm demeanor and it made me feel calm. They are direct without having a boss attitude. Luke made us laugh throughout the evening and provided a fun balance. We were lucky enough to see a few sneak peek shots and I melted. The few photos were beyond what I expected and beautiful. To top it off, they were supposed to leave at 9pm. It was about that time when they walked up and asked for our rings. They stayed a bit after to get the shots they needed, that speaks volumes of who they are and the business they lead. There was no looking at their watches, it was about the photos. Not 48 hours after our wedding, a mini-album was posted on Facebook. There was not even 1 of the 34 photos that we didn't like. I received many messages and phone calls as to who the photographers were as the photos were that gorgeous. I don't even have our full photos back, and won't for a while but I can't speak highly enough about 1985Luke Photography. Highly recommend!

My husband and I had the most amazing experience with Luke & Bre of 1985Luke Photography. Not only are Luke & Bre unbelievably nice people, they are also wonderful photographers. This husband & wife duo have been incredibly flexible to meet all of the requests my husband and I... Read More have put forth. Our relationship started with a meet and greet in San Jose, where bubbly Bre gave me the warmest hug and I knew immediately we would be in good hands. As my husband is a bit of a camera-phobe, we opted to do engagement photos as well as wedding photos. The engagement photo sessions was a great way to get to know Luke & Bre better as well as to understand their work style (very laid back, yet directive). Also, as the person being photographed, understanding the awkward body postures they ask you to do actually make for beautiful photographs. Ahead of the wedding, Bre and I worked out a timeline that fit the specifications of the package we purchased as well as my desires for specific photos. On the day of the wedding, Luke & Bre blended seamlessly into the day. I did not once worry about how the day was going to be captured, as I knew Luke & Bre would be doing everything I had asked for and more. As a side note - in addition to being a great photographer, Bre is also great at tying bows. She made the bow for my dress look like perfection. Luke, while quiet, was practically the life of the party. Luke joined in on the dance floor (of course, asking us beforehand if this is OK) and I’m sure got some awesome shots of some of the younger attendees breaking it down. Before the wedding ended, Bre had already posted some sneak peek pictures in Instagram and Facebook – which were so much fun to look at on the day after. In the following days, there were up to 20 “sneak peeks” that I could reflect back on when remembering the day. Luke & Bre go above and beyond. My grandmother, who was 90 at our wedding, passed away less than a month after. It was very special to have her there, and we were grateful to Luke & Bre for capturing the last family photo we will have with her. At my special request, they processed the pictures that included her ahead of the rest so that I could share with the rest of my family. We are so grateful they were there to capture this last family gathering. I HIGHLY recommend 1985Luke for any of your photography needs. I know that I plan to use them for events in the future… whatever that future may hold!

From our very first email inquiry, Bre and Luke were as fun and friendly as they were informative and professional. We fell in love with their photos right away, as their creativity and quality speaks volumes for itself, but what we didn't expect was making friends with our... Read More photographers. Bre and Luke made a point right off the bat to get to know us and make us feel comfortable, which was hugely important heading into the wedding. Having worked with other photographers in the past, we were amazed by their guidance and recommendations. When Bre and Luke ask you if you are doing a first look take them up on it! It was the best recommendation they could have given us. If Bre and Luke didn't take the time to explain the importance of the first look we would have missed out on something amazing. They were even able to keep smiles on everyone's faces, while making sure to keep to the schedule.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Luke and Bre. I remember showing up for the engagement photos pretty nervous not really knowing what to expect. I wouldn't say that Chris (my now husband) and I are naturals in front of a camera by no means, (far from actually...) but... Read More Luke and Bre made it fun, comfortable and so easy. It felt like we were hanging out with two close friends. We got married less then two weeks ago and already have gotten to see a sneak peek of our photos and they far exceeded our expectations, I can't wait to see the rest of them. Not only do they take the most beautiful photos but they are two of the nicest people I've ever met. I would highly recommend Luke and Bre for any special event you need captured they are truly amazing at what they do.

Your wedding day feels like it flies by in a matter of minutes…but the pictures last a lifetime. When planning for the big day, it’s essential to note what your priorities are so that you can budget accordingly. For us, the photos were top of the list. As we began searching for... Read More our photographer, a friend recommended looking into 1985Luke Photography, noting their beautiful photography and genuine personalities. To be honest, we heard so many great things that we started to question whether it was too good to be true…but when we finally met with them they totally lived up to the hype. In the months leading up to the wedding, we were impressed with their organization and communication, building a rapport through thoughtful notes and check-ins. We worked closely on a timeline and in-depth shot list to ensure we’d get the shots we wanted in the appropriate amount of time. They managed our large families (which is no easy task) extremely well, being directive in a way that wasn’t overbearing. Our family and friends all noted how pleasant they were in their encounters throughout the day and felt they blended in well with our guests. Luke & Bre have an eye for things that you don’t often see. Those shots that feel a little awkward (given our lack of modeling experience) turn out incredible. When you get that first sneak peek the night of, you can rest assured that they’ve captured the memories you want to treasure for the rest of your lives. Towards the end of the night as they said their goodbyes, we no longer viewed them as just our photographers…they were now our friends. Just weeks after, we came back from our honeymoon to an additional 70+ photo sneak peek to share with our family and friends as they finalized the full album. It goes without saying that we absolutely recommend 1985Luke Photography.

From the first time I spoke to Bre on the phone I was hooked. Both her and her husband Luke are full of charisma, enthusiasm and expertise on everything from posing, lighting, clothing and accessories, to creating a timeline and providing advice on how to ensure your dreams come... Read More true on your wedding day . Luke and Bre did absolutely everything I could have asked for, and even went above and beyond by creating things like photo tabs with our engagement photos on one side and info on where to go for sneak peaks on the other! They were on constant watch with the weather to ensure we got all of the pictures we wanted throughout the day, and my family and friends had so much fun getting to know them, they are now asking me if we can have them do family portraits. When I was deciding on vendors, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to hire the best possible people to ensure my wedding day went perfect, and I was not disappointed. After receiving our engagement photos, and the incredible guest book we had them create, I knew I could trust them to take care of everything photography at our wedding. I am so happy and thankful I chose them, and cannot wait to get our album, not to mention I think additional albums are going to be the perfect holiday gifts for our family this Christmas!!

Here is the thing with having Luke and Bre as part of your team, you are getting so much more than a wedding photographer! Bre, literally, put together my entire day of schedule for me since I was lagging. When we hired them, we got a day of coordinator, hair fixer, boutonniere pinning, child entertainer, sounding board. Did I mention that Luke is a blast on the dance floor and truly adds excitement to the day? We have not received all of our wedding photos yet but based off of the sneak peaks alone I can tell you, don't hire anyone else! As I said the night of our wedding when I hugged them goodbye, we found our family photographers. We look forward to documenting our lives for year and years with Luke & Bre.

We were able to get know both Luke and Bre better and you start feel like they are old friends. A big selling point for us is that they shoot side by side allowing them to capture the same moment from different angles. They met us in San Francisco for the shoot on a Sunday evening and after shooting for a bit decided that lighting at our preferred location would be better later. We ended up shooting for almost an extra hour past the 2 hour session. They went above and beyond sacrificing their time with a long drive home to get the perfect shots. And they day of the wedding was no exception. A few things didn't go as smoothly as planned the morning of the wedding and we were running about an hour behind. Bre jumped right in to help calm my nerves and help trouble shoot. She even helped fix a bridesmaid bouquet, clearly not in her job description. We took photos immediately after the ceremony and then they pulled us again at sunset for a few more shots. The biggest surprise was after they announced us at the reception, Luke was waiting on top of a hill and they gathered the entire wedding for a group shot. (We were married at a winery and had the reception on the back patio with rolling vineyard hills surrounding us allowing Luke to climb and get dirty!) We loved the preview and can't wait to see the rest of the photos! Booking 1985Luke for our wedding was the best decision we made.
