If you’re looking for a team that can beautifully capture your day and provide good energy, then A Touch of Soul Productions is your go-to team.
Everyone here has already commented on how great ATOS is and their work portfolio (website, FB/IG...
, and Vimeo) speaks wonders for itself.
We can’t recommend ATOS enough and have already done so with family and friends, but, as a couple who did tons of research themselves before finding ATOS, here are some things to consider and help you decide if ATOS is right for your event.
Convenience: All-in-one team: Photography, cinematography, and photobooth. This means less time searching for and coordinating multiple vendors and also results in cohesiveness in products. Plus, packaging it all together means cost savings too! ATOS packages are very competitive and reasonable. Comparable vendors quoted us 2-3x as much and also didn’t offer as much! Also, pre-and throughout COVID we were able to meet and plan through phone calls or email and contracts and payments were completed electronically. As a busy couple juggling work, school, and wedding planning, this was a huge convenience.
Expertise: Planning a wedding, especially one during COVID, is stressful enough, but the ATOS team made the process easy and fun. They have a lot of knowledge, experience, and patience, and you can really see everyone on the team enjoys what they do. I don’t know how they do it, because we know they’re really busy, but whether its through phone calls/mtgs, emails, or photoshoots they make you feel like all their time is just for you! Shout outs to Ralph, Chris, Rodel, Sheryl, and Joanne!
Experience: Chris can capture anything from candid romantics to artistic dramatic shots. Let him and the team know what you want (if you already have a vision in mind), but also trust their direction. As a result, we ended up with a diverse choice of images to choose from. Note to couples, don’t be too scared to “get out of your comfort zone.” Posing for photos is not something most of us are used to, so feel free to trust the experts and you’ll end up with some beautiful shots you never thought you’d have. We had a blast shooting with Chris every time, it was like catching up with a friend who just happens to be holding a camera directed at you. At some point, you even start to forget that he has the camera! Also, don’t be surprised if Chris ends up shooting lying down on the floor, through a bush, or knee deep in water. He’s very dedicated to his craft :p
Traditions: Our parents were hesitant that a non-Vietnamese vendor could capture the nuances of our culture and tea ceremony. However, our parents were super impressed with how well the event was captured and how well Chris blended in. We got so much feedback from family about Chris' great energy. Family and friends who couldn’t be present that day because of COVID restrictions really enjoyed the photos we shared.
The Cool factor: Highly recommend customizing your wedding and upgrading your photobooth package with the green screen. We had a lot of fun personalizing the photobooth backgrounds and our guests really enjoyed it too.
Service: ATOS delivered their products to us in a really timely manner. From our experience we typically got a preview on IG within the week, got our engagement photos in < 2wks, and our ceremony photos in ~ 4wks. With family and friends antsy to see photos ASAP, it’s nice to not have to wait months to see and share the final product.
