The moment Chris proposed, I knew that I wanted The Brocato's to be our wedding photographers. I even moved the wedding date twice to accommodate their schedules. Besides saying yes to Chris's proposal that was the best wedding related decision I made. They are absolutely fantastic! I had no doubt that they would, but I was absolutely blown away by their professionalism, organization, and their ability to put us at ease and make us laugh. My husband is not the picture type, and he was a little nervous (not that he'd admit) for our engagement photos, and it was hotter than hell. And of course, I picked an outdoor venue. Ang and Lyle completely put us as ease, made us laugh and took the absolute best pictures that I could have asked for. I was absolutely blown away when I got the engagement pictures back, equally blown away when I got my pre-bridals back, and moved to tears and rendered speechless when I got the wedding photos back. They were absolutely breathtaking. When we first started the wedding planning process, I knew that if I wasn't careful it would get out of hand, so I made a list of the top three things that mattered to me. 1) Photographers 2) Dress 3) Venue/Band I figured that in 5, 10, 15, 20, 50 years that those three things were the only things that were going to still matter. I'm so glad that I made that decision. Our pictures are absolutely breath taking, and I may need to buy a bigger house to have more room to hang all of the pictures that I love. Every time I look at them, I'm again moved to tears and rendered speechless. After the wedding was over and we were back from our honeymoon, my dad said to me, "They were worth every single penny". And since it was his pennies I was spending, I say that's a huge compliment! My advice to any bride looking for photographers that will take care of everything and help you look naturally stunning in your photos, look no further. Ang and Lyle are the two people you want capturing the single most important day of your life.
Truly, truly, truly beyond. It has been a little over 6 months since my husband and I got married, and not a day goes by that I don't take a peek at our wedding photos daily (honest to goodness truth!!)!! It is one thing to feel like your wedding photographers are old friends (which before we met them, we were complete strangers) but's its another to feel like your wedding is the only wedding they are photographing...despite that you are getting in March...in New Orleans...which is pretty much THE high season for weddings there! And oh yes, Ang just gave birth to their third child a month before your wedding. NBD!! Lyle and Ang are not only fabulous photographers but they are genuinely wonderful people who simply LOVE love and it is so incredibly apparent in their work. My husband and I are not big into posed photos because we feel that those take away from the true magic of moments and so when we got our wedding photos back from Ang and Lyle (which, may I add was a quick two months after our wedding!) we were floored to see all these beautiful and heartfelt moments they captured between us, our family, our friends and our beloved city of New Orleans. I look at our photos and can vividly remember what I was feeling in the moment the photo was taken and honestly, what more could you ask for?! To them, this really is so much more than a business....it is their livelihood!! XOXOXO
WOW! Lyle & Ang were our photographers for our wedding in the French Quarter in March 2017, and we could not be happier with their work. The photos are absolutely stunning... more than one guest remarked afterwards that they looked like they were "out of a magazine." Not only were we thrilled with their work, but we were also so touched by their sincerity and kind manner through the whole process. They both went out of their way to make the two of us and our family members feel special. They were such a pleasure to have with us throughout the day, and played a big role in making our wedding the happiest day of our lives. We heartily recommend them!!
I had my wedding at the Immaculate Conception Church Downtown and the reception at Latrobe's on Royal in the French Quarter. I just received my wedding photos and OMG!!!! Angelena & Lyle captured every moment imaginable!! We hired the Brocatos for our rehearsal dinner at Galatoire's and our wedding day. They were so awesome to work with. They are a fun couple and made everyone feel comfortable. Their attention to detail is AMAZING!!! We had a list of posed shots we wanted to get (i.e. first look, father daughter first look, bridesmaid group shot getting ready, etc) and we hit everything on the list plus more in a fun and fashionable way. They did there thing as the night went on and as I look at the photos I could cry. They didn't miss a shot. There were not invasive as I didn't even realize they were capturing what I just saw in the gallery. It is awesome! I'm like I don't remember them being there while I was doing that or talking to so and so but they were! They are beautiful! I will treasure these photos forever! I will get them printed but I also have them digitally which really means that I will have them forever saved on my hard drive! They politely told me when to move my chin up or down or my arm to get a much more flattering photo, which I requested and I am SO thankful!! I am so pleased with their work. Having great photos to remember, for a once in a life time event in your life, and for me, the BEST night of my life, was so important. I would highly recommend the Brocatos. They are extremely professional, highly experienced, and locals of New Orleans. They had shot at my venues several times before so they knew the location site well. These two talented photographers are creative, fun, and really know what they are doing. A power couple who is a team that I really admire. Thank you Angelena and Lyle, so much for capturing Chris and I's Wedding day and night and Rehearsal Dinner. We are forever thankful! We hope to use the Brocatos again for future important times in our lives.
Wow!!! I cannot say enough great things about Ang and Lyle Brocato...they were so lovely and easy to work with from start to finish. I’m not much of a ham for the camera, and I think they totally got that and made everything super relaxed on the day of. Aside from being incredibly sweet, their photos are absolutely stunning. People commented that our wedding looked like a magazine shoot, and I think it really did thanks to our amazing photographers! Book ASAP!!!
When it comes to weddingphotographers, it just doesn’t get any better than Lyle and Ang. They truly shoot their way into your hearts. Our wedding just would not have been the same without them. We will cherish our pictures forever.
Before getting engaged, I had done my research on photographers in the New Orleans area. And I knew after seeing a handful of work done by Angelina and Lyle that they had to capture my future wedding day. After getting engaged, we chose a date and I immediately reached out to Brocato to find out if they would be available for our wedding. Angelina was quick to respond with a phone call and made me feel at ease, as if we had known each other for many years, during our first consultation. In the months leading up to the wedding, I had several phone conversations and many exchanged emails between myself and the Brocatos. They were so easy-going and clear about information I requested. On our wedding day, Angelina and Lyle, showed up on time and ready to capture our day. The Brocatos put my husband and I, as well as everyone in the wedding party and wedding guests, at ease with their presence. The day went by in a blink, as they all do, and the day after I kept thinking I don't have any photos to remember it all. But exactly 1 month later, our photos arrived. And they were beautiful beyond words. I have looked over the album at least 100 times, or more! We couldn't be happier with our choice to work with the Brocatos to capture our love story. They are true artists at what they do, and would recommend anyone to work with them to capture their story!! Thank you, Angelina and Lyle, for the most beautiful wedding gift we could have received - the gift of our wedding day story through photos. Cheers - Kate and Max
I initially hired Brocato to shoot my wedding and engagement photos. Leading up to the day of the engagement session I had not heard from either Lyle or Angela about how many outfit choices we got, a confirmation of time or meeting place. At the time, I knew that they were expecting a baby any day now and tried to give them the benefit of the doubt but the lack of communication was frustrating. The engagement photos came out great and we got a TON of them. Long story short, we postponed our wedding and when we set a new date I emailed them again to see if I could use my old deposit, which I could! I knew, despite the communication issues, that they took great photos and was willing to give them another shot since their new baby was here and settled in. We emailed back and forth quickly until I asked if they were available on my new wedding date. That email was sent over a week ago and I still have no response. As a bride, especially when it comes to a photographer, you want to feel catered to and listened to. I felt neither. If anything, I felt and still feel ignored. I will be going elsewhere for my wedding day photography, despite losing my deposit.
THE BEST COUPLE TO WORK WITH!!! From the moment you meet Lyle and Ang you will immediately feel at ease and know that you are in great hands. We had a destination wedding at our family home in Mississippi. They made a point to understand the little details which were so important to us, and captured each of those moments with perfection. From the preparation shots to the formal family photos to capturing the little intimate moments between my husband and I, they got it all! They had great artistic vision, and didn't miss a thing. The pictures were absolutely stunning and with the soft elegance we were hoping for. The best part is, they were so upbeat and fun to work with and you can tell that they absolutely love what they do, and love LOVE! We highly recommend Brocato Photography and can't say enough positive things about our experience!
SIMPLY THE BEST! I cannot say enough good things about Brocato Photography - Angelena and Lyle were a pleasure to work with, and the pictures are STUNNING. You spend most of your wedding day with your photographers, so it is a very important decision. Angelena and Lyle were so calm and organized and really helped with the flow of the entire day. They brought a relaxed presence to the entire day, which is a big feat when you're up against wedding day nerves! They are the cutest couple, and their love for one another really shines through in everything that they do. I will forever treasure all of the wonderful moments that they captured on film, and I am so thankful that I was able to work with them. Brocato Photography is the best!
Photography for your wedding is one of the items that I truly believe you should not skimp on. Words cannot describe how amazing Lyle and Ang were as our photographers for our big day! From our engagement photos, to our rehearsal dinner and our wedding, we enjoyed every minute of working with the Brocato's. From the start, their professionalism and process of booking was seamless. This was very important to me as I was planning an out of town wedding. The pricing and customization of packages / add-ons made it easy to work with our budget. Even with having to cancel my bridals due to the weather, they were able to take the credit and apply it elsewhere. We immediately felt comfortable working with Lyle and Ang and so did our family and friends. From the funny moments in the French Quarter during our engagements to all the partying and dancing at our reception, every single moment of our wedding was captured beautifully. All of our pictures truly show the love and excitement of our big day. Also a big shoutout to Ang, who even pregnant still was going non stop on her feet at our wedding! Thank you Lyle and Ang for everything! We already plan to book you again in the coming years and have you capture photos of our family as we grow! :)
With so much going on planning a wedding - let these two take the photo aspect off your plate. Ang and Lyle were both great at listening to what I was trying to capture and provided me with tons of great shots. The best part is they truly blend in allowing you to really enjoy the entire day/evening and you get great candids. I've been to other weddings where they were hired as photographers and have loved all of their work. 2 thumbs up!!
DYNAMIC DUO!!!! Having seen photos from friends and family who used the Brocatos, the choice was simple. Kyle and Ang do amazing work and are so fun and easy to work with. They are super talented , organized and knew ahead the special photos we wanted captured. The quality of our photos are superb! We have so many to choose from and will cherish those memories forever. Thanks so much for making our day extra special! YOU'RE the BEST!!
We could not be more pleased with the outcome of our engagement, bridal, and wedding photos!!! They are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! Each session with the Brocatos was fun, lighthearted, and stress free. One thing we really loved the most about Angelena and Lyle is that their talent speaks for itself--- they do not need to "doctor" photos to make them look perfect. They are that talented. During the wedding, they captured every moment we requested and more! We received our pictures in a timely manner and have them all on file to cherish anytime we choose. Their generosity, understanding, flexibility, and genuine personalities make them an amazing choice for wedding photographers!!!
SO TALENTED AND GENUINELY KIND-HEARTED PEOPLE! I had a large wedding party and was nervous about the night being chaotic! Ang and Lyle were amazing every step of the way. They got all of our immediate family members names weeks before the wedding and actually got them ALL right the day of! They are the kind of ppl that you feel like you've known forever upon just meeting them. We are still in awe over their fabulous work!!! :)
Absolutely amazing photographers! They instantly knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding pictures, and totally understood our style when they met us. Everyone who sees our photographs gives us tons of compliments, and says they are some of the best wedding photos theyve seem, including our wedding planner! These two are absolutely incredible and I completely recommend them to any and everyone!!! we absolutely love all of our pictures, and are so thankful that they captured such beautiful moments for us to cherish forever!!
Words cannot express how talented this couple is! Booking the Brocato's was the BEST decision that I made throughout planning my wedding. Lyle and Angelina are two of the kindest people who present such fabulous work! Your wedding day can get hectic at times, but the Brocato's have excellent time management skills and have the capability to keep everyone calm and things running smoothly without missing a single moment. They are both so cognizant of every detail, which allows you to enjoy your guests without having to worry if certain moments are being captured. After your wedding is over, all you have left is your photographs. Angelina and Lyle have the talent to capture these memories that you can have forever. Everytime I look at my photos, I get a huge smile on my face because I am immediately brought back to that amazing day. I promise, you will not regret your decision if you book the Brocato's. They are truly MAGNIFICENT!!
If you are looking for an amazing team to shoot your wedding, look no further! Lyle and Angelena are a great team that make you feel like a super star on your special day. They are very organized, professional, and creative. They both worked well with my entire family including the little ones to capture my special day. I would recommend them to everyone and any one who wants the best photos and customer service for their wedding. Best photos I could ask for! Picking the ones to print has been hard! They are all so good!
Angelena and Lyle were wonderful from the moment they showed up until the band's last encore. They were so fun and really set the tone for the day....and the pictures! Amazing first look photos and unbelievable shots all day of the the ceremony, second line and the reception.
Lyle and Angelena were so easy to work with! They took absolutely amazing photos of our wedding and the bridals...SO PERFECT! After the wedding, the photos are all you have left!! Brocato Photography is worth every penny and I highly recommend them!!
So HAPPY I was introduced to not only amazing photographers but incredible people. They are definitely one of kind and you will not find a talent like theirs just anywhere and a couple that is so in tune on what to capture, it's amazing. I RECOMMEND them 100%! I swear you will be amazed and definitely will not regret your choice. I knew from the start that I wanted The Brocatos to be our photographers and I was able to book that and have no worries. It is nice to feel confident about a decision when it comes to your wedding because there are so many decisions to be made. But I was fully confident in our photographer choice and the pictures I received after blew my expections way out of the water!! Like I said though, you are not only getting amazing talent but beautiful people inside out as well:)
I could have written a 5-star review on the Brocato's the day that I booked them and first spoke with them. They are so personable, kind, and knowledgeable and made making decisions very simple. After working with Lyle for my Bridal's and having Angelena at my house for prep pictures, I knew there couldn't have been a better choice for my wedding photographers. BOTH of them make you feel so comfortable; they are so calm, so professional, and have the sweetest demeanor imaginable. THEN, I got my pictures back. I was in complete awe of each one. They capture the most perfect moments of your special day. There is so much creativity throughout and the images are absolutely flawless. Lyle and Angelena Brocato are a power couple. I would recommend no one else to take your wedding day pictures. THANK YOU SO MUCH, BROCATO PHOTOGRAPHY!! love y'all!!!! - Emily Tornabene
Today marks my first anniversary and looking back on my special day makes me think of how the best decision I made for my wedding -aside from my groom , of course ; ) was choosing this POWER couple to capture all the special moments of the day. They told our love story so beautifully. Not only are they super sweet and an absolute JOY to work with, but they each have their own unique shots, so it's like getting the best of both worlds with them. I had the pleasure of working with them for multiple weddings and they have been nothing but AMAZING! Choose them! You WILL NOT regret it, I promise!
Super professional. Organized. Fun. Loving. Amazing!!!!!!!!
The Brocatos did such an amazing job for our August wedding! I have a very large extended family and they were so accommodating and patient while we tried to get everyone together for a picture. They were extremely organized and everything flowed wonderfully. Also, the pictures are incredible and we could not be any happier with how they turned out!
