Dustin is Fantastic!Reviewed on 11/23/2014 Lisa C
We can't say enough great things about Dustin and his work! On top of being extremely professional and responsive, Dustin was so easy to work with and always made us feel at ease during our sessions. He is such an amazing photographer and every time we sat down to pick photos for our albums (including Christmas, Family, Engagement, Bridals, Boudoir, and Wedding!), we always had SO many favorites that we always had to order extra pages to fit them all the one album. Dustin's eye and talent is incredible. We couldn't be happier that we chose his as our photographer!
We could NOT recommend Edmond enough! He was so wonderful! Halfway through my wedding planning, I was transferred to Minnesota, and I was a little nervous on how that would go since I was unable to meet any of my vendors in person. All other "consults" were quick phone calls, and I thought it would be the same for the photography-Edmond spent over an hour talking with me about what I wanted captured on our special day. Our wedding rolled around, and it was raining...all day...didn't let up once! They say it's good luck, and I guess they are right, because we completely lucked out with Edmond and his team. They were so flexible and still managed to find some awesome locations for our shoots. Since I was in Minnesota, I was unable to do a bridal shoot, so Edmond added some time to do that for me the day of, and they came out perfect. All of our pictures came out perfectly and the most common response we are getting from our friends and family is: "The love was captured so perfectly" Which is exactly what I wanted. I wanted people to feel the fun, support, and love that was all around us on our day. We hardly ever even noticed where he was, but he seemed to get every shot from every angle. It was icing on our wedding cake that we got them back within 10 days! I was having major wedding withdrawals and they came at the perfect time to reminisce! Thank you so much Edmond and team for such wonderful photos, such amazing professionalism, and for capturing our day so perfectly!
I'm extremely happy with the work that Dustin and his wife did at our wedding. Dustin also did our engagement photos. Photos back within less than a week for both shoots.
Dustin did an amazing job with our engagement photos, my bridals and the day of our wedding! He and his wife are so great to work with, during our wedding they were there to capture every single moment and to make sure that we got every shot we wanted! Not only were all of our pictures amazing (aka pinterest worthy!), but Dustin has extremely fast turnaround time. Our wedding pictures were sent to us less than 1 week after the wedding! I can't say enough great things about him!
Dustin provided a phenomenal service and his turn around time was incredible - we had our professional pictures a few days after the event. Pictures were beautiful, fun and unique! What I liked most about working with Dustin was his ability to be there at a moments notice, but was otherwise conspicuously taking pictures without being intrusive; he was always close by.
Dustin was very thorough and professional. He really listened to what type of pictures we wanted and was creative with his use of lighting. The pictures of my wedding are stunning and amazing because of him!
Dustin and his wife did an amazing job capturing our day. I was stunned at how the photos made me feel exactly as if I was living the wedding again. They were are so beautiful!! Dustin is super easy to work with and added zero stress to the day. Highly recommended!
Dustin and Nicole were a vital part of our big day; they made our wedding come to life in beautiful photos. They were timely, professional, and super creative with photo opportunities. I received my photos back in just a few days after my wedding which was such a great surprise. I would absolutely recommend Dustin Finkelstein Photography for anyone who has a big event and wants the best photos to remember their day.
very professional photographer, amazing photos. couldnt really ask for much more.
Dustin and Edmond were both wonderful! They not only took beautiful pictures, but were nice to have around on our wedding day. I highly recommend them!
Dustin did an amazing job on my wedding photos (on July 30, 2016) when it was extremely hot outside. He was professional and quick, and was very responsive to what I wanted. The images came out amazing and he got them back to us very quickly! Totally worth every penny!
We had Marissa Licarione do our engagement photos and wedding/reception and she was so much fun to work with! She made it so easy and gave us great direction for some really fun photos. Then she even got the wedding photos back to us earlier than expected which was great because we realized neither my husband and I or close family had gotten any pictures of us so it was so great to see how awesome they had turned out! Dustin was great with all the contracts being online along with everything else so it was easy to review and go back over and order our photo albums. Great people, great skills, great service, etc...You can't wrong with Dustin Finkelstein Photography!
Highly recommend this company. Edmond was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process, from questions when working on the contract all the way to getting our pictures back ONE WEEK AFTER THE WEDDING. Seriously-we were shocked by how quickly they came back, and they look absolutely beautiful and are everything we could have hoped for. Edmond did my bridals and put me totally at ease, then shot our large outdoor wedding perfectly...capturing details we didn't even think about and making them some of our favorite pictures. Dustin Finkelstein Photography is a STEAL for the package price and the quality of photos and photographer you're getting.
Dustin is so nice, professional, easy to work with, & a great photographer! Finding our wedding photographer was the hardest vendor to nail down for us. Luckily I came across Dustin's website & he drove about 30-45 minutes in Austin rush hour to meet us for a consultation. He immediately put me at ease about finding the right photographer. We opted out of having an engagement or bridal shoot with him, so we didn't get a chance to build a relationship with him at all before the wedding, but it didn't seem to matter. He is very easy-going, which helped my nerves settle on the big day & we just felt totally comfortable working with him. We got our pictures back so quickly too & I was blown away by how beautiful they had turned out!! Beyond all of my expectations! Dustin is the best! Book him, you'll be so happy you did.
Dustin was great! Though I had a severe case of wedding brain, Dustin and his wife were superrrrr flexible and accommodating to my millions of last minute details and requests. My husband and I had lots of fun working with them! And the pictures look absolutely gorgeous!!! Highly recommended :)
Edmond Lorts from DF Photography was INCREDIBLE! My husband and I met with 3 different photographers before selecting one, and we instantly felt a click with him! As far as price goes, we felt their price offered the most in terms of number of photographers (2), time at wedding, and custom-made wedding album. The photos were ready in less than a week, and we were given full access and ability to share with family and friends. The pictures are WONDERFUL!! I am so incredibly pleased, and I cannot even count the number of times I have looked at them since our wedding last month. Edmond and the second photographer (whose name escapes me, unfortunately) captured all of the right moments perfectly (including my husband crying as I came down the aisle--SCORE!). The coloring of the photos are exactly what I was looking for...light and romantic. Edmond really knows his stuff! I never met with Dustin himself, but he was responsive to all e-mails. I'm almost glad he wasn't available, because he sent us Edmond! ;) Thanks for everything, y'all! I highly recommend them to every bride!
Dustin came to our rescue after our other wedding photographer had to cancel due to surgery (luckily, she's recovering well now!). On top of being friendly, professional, and down-to-earth, with absolutely affordable prices for Austin... his work is excellent. I really couldn't ask for anything mo--- oh wait! Did I mention how quickly the turn around time was? We got married on Saturday, and it's now Thursday. ALL of our photos are back! 10/10 would book again. This guy rocks.
I had Edmond Lorts as a photographer through Dustin Finkelstein and he was EVERYTHING I wanted in a photographer. He was our photographer for our engagement pictures, bridal, and wedding day. He was extremely easy to work with and never pushy!! He was VERY laid back and did any shots that I asked for. He was fun to work with and I felt so comfortable around him. Pictures were one of the most important things for me and if I had to do it all over again, I would pick them 1,000 times!! I seriously cannot say enough about him to put in prospective how truly talented and wonderful he is as a photographer!
Edmond was amazing! My husband and I both knew what we did not want out of a photographer but had a hard time finding the right person. We did not want a lot of flashes all over the reception and did not want a photographer to be in everyone's way. We wanted someone to blend in to our wedding as well as capture amazing pictures. We were referred to Dustin from a friend who is using him for their wedding in October. Unfortunately, Dustin was already booked for our date but his partner Edmond was available. We met with Edmond and discussed what we were looking for and more importantly what we were not looking for. Edmond was perfect! He stayed out of the way so much so that we both forgot he was there but he was able to capture some amazing pictures! Thanks Edmond!
Absolutely yes, yes, yes. Dustin is hands down the best photographer we could've asked for for engagement and wedding pictures. We paid for the wedding ourselves, and he is absolutely worth every penny (but still extremely reasonable!). He traveled to Waco for an engagement shoot, and the pictures were amazing. He captured our hometown in the best way possible - and even arrived early to drive around and scout good picture sites. He is so fun to work with! Leading up to the wedding, I would surf through other photographer's work at our venue, just to get some ideas. Dustin and Nicole's work FAR surpassed the other photographer's work at the same venue - he has the best shots of the venue that I've seen! The grounds aren't that expansive, but he made the pictures look like we were in the middle of nowhere. Absolutely phenomenal craftsmanship! I would highly recommend Dustin and his colleagues. He captured the spirit, the friendships, and our loved ones at our wedding so well, and I am so thankful that we found him! Communication, professionalism, style, flexibility, and price are all great. Stop searching, and reach out to him!
My wife and I had a mixed cultural wedding (Hindu and Western) and we were extremely impressed not only by Dustin’s professionalism but also his flexibility and understanding nature throughout the entire process. Despite his busy schedule throughout the months leading up to our big day, he was prompt in responding to our scheduling requests for the engagement and bridal shoots. We were able to complete both in amazing weather and lighting thanks to his cooperation. When it came to the wedding day, Dustin and his wife covered the event. Since the ceremony followed mainly Hindu tradition, we had to communicate about the important aspects of the day that needed to be captured. Dustin’s very efficient questionnaire helped us create the perfect concept for the day. During the wedding, both he and his wife were very understanding of our photography needs and remained patient at even the most stressful moments and made us feel at ease. Because of this, he was able to capture stunning, emotionally vivid and perfectly representative images of our special day. Dustin is a very personable, professional and understanding photographer, and this comes across in the quality and sincerity of his work. We highly recommend him and his company!
Dustin and Nicole did an excellent job capturing our wedding. They were not intrusive, but yet they were thorough. Also, I commend them from being able to manage wrangling our large families to get some nice family portraits. It's so nice to have images of little details that you didn't notice during the wedding. Thank you to both of them for their wonderful work! They were professional,timely and communicative.
I hired Dustin to do my engagement photos, bridal portraits, and wedding photos. He was amazing to work with from the very beginning, but after I got my engagement photos back, and saw what an awesome job he had done, I could not wait for the wedding! And he did not disappoint! All of my photos are just so timeless, taken at great angles, and really capture the essence of the wedding. AND he gets them back to you so quickly!! He and Nicole have a natural gift behind the camera, and their talent really shows through in all your photos. He was also very easy to get in touch with any time I had a question. I highly recommend hiring for your wedding!
Great communication and prompt response! Amazing photos and everyone loved them. Extremely professional and easy going.
My wife and I got married on 26 March 2016, and hired this group to capture what the essence of our day was. The only word to sum up what kind of product we received from this photographer.... STUNNING. Edmond started off strong with the most memorable shots of my beautiful bride a few weeks before our wedding date. Scheduling was easy, communication was prompt, and every aspect of what he offered was professional. Not only that.... but WITHIN THE WEEK OF THE WEDDING we had our shots completely ready for us... the turn time to get the final product was a mere few days!!! And wow.... The photos tell a story. I mean.... they REALLY tell a story, our story. We are so grateful that we had these Edmond and Desiree show up on the day of our wedding. For one, I forgot they were even there for 90% of the time. They made the venue their canvas and fit right in. They were easy to talk to and offered up tons of great ideas for predetermined shots, while taking the absolute best shots without us knowing throughout our entire day. If I could recommend these guys to everyone a million times over, I would. You will be the first ones we recommend to all of our local friends who get hitched, or need a professional photographer for any event for that matter. Thank you for your amazing work... keep doing what you're doing!!
