La Vida Creations was one of the first vendors we nailed down for our wedding. We booked them because we had heard good things about their work and knew that they packaged engagement photo sessions with wedding day photography services. But mos...
tly, we booked them because we cared very much about the quality of the pictures that would be taken on our special day, and we knew La Vida could deliver. The memories we have of our engagement photo session and our wedding day are the best of our lives, and when we look at the pictures they become that much more vivid and real. We have La Vida to thank for that and so much more.
All of the La Vida photographers are extremely personable people who care about you as a couple and know that the only way they're going to get amazing photos is if you feel comfortable around them. The best example of this is their requirement to do an engagement session with their couples prior to the wedding day. Not only do you get amazing photos out of the session, but the whole time they are taking note of how you interact with each other as a couple - your dynamic, unspoken gestures and quirks. Those are the things that make your photos yours, and not just generic couples photos. When they arrive to shoot on your wedding day, they have learned those things that make you unique as a couple and their photos reflect that uniqueness - from the first shot to the last. It is not hard to get comfortable around all of the La Vida photographers because they are so outgoing, friendly and fun!
During the wedding, La Vida creations was extremely professional and prepared. They came to the wedding knowing all of the shots that we wanted (after we had done their homework e-mailed to us about a month prior) and all of the names of important family and friends. We had a crazy amount of pictures we wanted before the ceremony and I can't believe how efficiently we breezed through them all. Even the picture with three siblings, three in-laws, seven children under five years old, and parents went quickly. Best of all they made it fun!
For the non-staged pictures, La Vida Creations mastered the art of being a fly on the wall and capturing true emotions. We honestly couldn't be happier with the quality (and quantity) of pictures delivered to us after the event. Additionally, La Vida works very efficiently to get your pictures post-processed and uploaded to a very professional (and password protected) website which allows you to download one, multiple or all of the pictures at once for your personal use. The accessibility of the pictures was very important to us, and La Vida Creations is great about letting you do whatever you wish with your photos - although they also have some amazing photo-book packages that are going to be great for a future anniversary!
In short, going with La Vida Creations was the best decision we made for our wedding. Everything else - the food, the music, the venue - is temporary. The pictures La Vida took of our special day are timeless and we are going to cherish them forever. We are absolutely going to think of La Vida Creations when we need professional photographers for our future events, and we whole-heartedly recommend them for yours!
