Tim and Virginia drove down to State College to take our engagement photos and we knew right away that they were awesome! They are so professional and yet super down to earth. They are much more than just photographers. They are artists that know what angles, lighting, backgrounds, and poses will make for amazing shots. They don’t just take pretty portraits, they capture emotions on camera in a way that makes you really relive that moment. After hiring them, there is almost no planning you have to do with them. Just let them do their thing! They know exactly what they are doing. No need to put together a shot list, they know what is important to get on film. At our wedding, we honestly didn’t even notice they were there half the time, but they found a way to sneak around and get the most amazing candid shots! Our videographers were just as amazing! They had us do a few poses and actions and turned it into a masterpiece. We were so surprised on our wedding day when they whipped out a drone to fly over the valley to capture breathtaking footage. How cool is that!? With our videography package came a 4 minute highlight film, which absolutely blew us away. They used the most perfect moments and parts of the speeches that hit every emotion possible. We have received an endless amount of compliments on the video and photos we have so far. We can’t wait to get the rest! We can’t be more thankful for all the great memories they captured on photo/video. What they do is priceless and will be treasured for many years to come! We will definitely be in touch for photos when we begin to grow our family!
