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... Read More 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... Read More (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... Read More 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 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... Read More 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... Read More 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... Read More 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... Read More 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! :)

Hands-down the best money we spent on our New Orleans destination wedding. The photos they created for us are our dearest treasure. In the midst of a whirlwind day, they were our eyes capturing many moments we would have otherwise missed. Like most brides, I put a lot of... Read More creative energy into conjuring a particular atmosphere at our wedding. They immediately "got it" and were able to translate this into our photos. I hope you are as lucky as we were, and get to work with them. Our experience with the Brocato team surpassed our expectations. They were promptly responsive to questions, showed enthusiasm for our wedding, always did what they said they would do, made it easy to track billing and then photos with how they employed technology so smartly. They even added the most delightful and classy little touches, that I won't spoil for you because I want you to enjoy those surprises as much as I did! Our wedding ran the gamut and required true professional skill. They shot in digital and film, daytime and at night, indoors and outdoors. All with stellar results. The day of the wedding went a little sideways, courtesy of our venue. You wouldn't know it based on the pictures. Practically every guest has told us how wonderful the Brocatos were to work with, and that our pictures are the best they've seen. Even after our wedding day, I feel as though they have treated us as respected clients. I know they are incredibly busy, but I never felt like our wedding fell in between the cracks. Impressive. Best to you and yours on your wedding day! (And hopefully it includes the Brocato team.)
