From day one, Aaron and his team were some of the most professional, caring, attentive, and fun people to work with. With all the stresses that come with planning an Italian wedding, Aaron stepped right up ensuring us that he was in full control of the picture situation and that... Read More he was going to do his best to not just take pictures of our day but to instead capture memories. He allowed us to be natural, playing to our strengths and avoiding our weaknesses and never forced us into a certain type of picture if we felt awkward or uncomfortable doing so. Aaron is extremely imaginative and with each idea he had, he continued to blow us away. He has this uncanny ability to fly below the radar at an event to ultimately capture the candid moments and bring the pictures and our album to life. We really do re-live the wedding and reception every time we look at the final result. I don't think we can truly express how amazed we are with the Aaron's results. Everyone who saw our pictures absolutely loved them and had nothing but good things to say. Not only do we give our highest recommendation for Aaron Varga Photography, but we also look forward to using him again in the future.

If you're getting married in the Pittsburgh area, go book Aaron Varga right now.

But if you want the photos that wow strangers and make the people who turned down your invitation jealous for not making it, hire Aaron Varga. He won't just help you remember your special day, he'll make it more special. Verbal reviews from random friends who saw our pictures: "You've got the best engagement and wedding photos I've ever seen." "You're photographer was so nice." "Did you see your photographer laying down in the middle of the street to get that shot? It came out so good." "How did he make the sky look so pretty?" The list goes on. He excelled in the other stuff that matters too. His communication was superb - responding to emails and checking up better than any other vendor we had. And while he may have looked like a creeper while he was taking pictures of us behind shrubs, he couldn't have been nicer, funnier, or make us feel more comfortable.'re wasting time. Contact him right now and if he's already booked on your wedding date...change your wedding date.
