The Knot only allows 3500 characters in their reviews and honestly it's not enough space to share how, and why, George made such a wonderful impact on our wedding. I can summarize by saying simply that if you want the best you should hire George - he is amazingly talented,... Read More thoughtful, energetic and professional. Here's my breakdown of George and GK Photography: He's So Easy to Work With: After I put in the date request online George contacted me immediately to let me know he was available and arranged a meeting time to discuss the wedding. My wife and I loved how he immersed himself into our 'story' before we even signed on with him. He smiled and thought of cool ideas and seemed interested in us as a couple. We immediately signed on with him. He's Traditional with the Latest Technology: George believes in tradition and even has some old time film cameras. He has the latest in new technology as well. For our engagement session he got some outstanding shots of us on a boat using a drone. Though the photos were difficult to get he seemed energized by the idea of portraying images that showed exactly who we were. He'll Get The Shots Others May Not: I'm sure George isn't the only great photographer in the city but I'm not sure there are others who desire to get the perfect shot and will stop at nothing to get it. When you hire George you are getting someone devoted to getting it done "right" and that's something you can't pass up when you are talking about moments you'll never get again. I remember waking up on my wedding day and feeling calm - I knew that we just had to be ourselves and the day would be captured beautifully. As your wedding day is happening you notice certain special things - beautiful natural scenes, special embraces, funny moments - and in the back of your head you are thinking "wow, I hope these show up in the pictures." I figured that a good photographer would get some of those special things, but what blew me away was that George not only grabbed all of the ones that I remembered, but he also captured tons more that I hadn't even noticed that day. When we looked through our photos it was like going back to the day - the storyline of the photos was amazing - and all of the emotion, excitement and power of the day was raw and real. He'll Make You and Your Guests Feel At Ease: One of my friends told me something she noticed about George saying, "He's so full of energy and yet he makes you feel so relaxed at the same time." That's a perfect description of George - he is so "in control and focused" on the task at hand that there is a feeling of calmness that comes over you even during stressful moments. No one can take a good photo if they are tense and it's so important to have a personable professional who will help you feel relaxed and positive. Like I said - George is the entire package. He's certainly not cheap but photography isn't something that you should save money on in your budget. At the end of the day, when the band stops playing, the food is gone, the toasts have been said and the flowers start to wilt, you have one thing left that lasts forever - the images. Who do you want to trust to get those for you? We chose George and we think it's the best decision we could have made!

I cannot say enough good things about George!

George is in my opinion the very best photographer in New Orleans. Not only does he completely know what he is doing from a technical standpoint, he is genuinely one of the nicest persons I have met. My husband and I used George for our wedding and he was AMAZING. He knew the... Read More venue well, knew exactly which shots to take, and made us feel comfortable and laid back on our day. He nailed the shots and didn't waste any time when shooting us, so we were able to enjoy the most time with our guests as possible. I am SO thankful we chose George for our wedding. His personal touches were my favorite part. After we signed our contract, he and his wife sent us a box of thank you goodies (including a picture frame and cajun spice blend) along with a hand written card. So sweet. I loved all of our pictures. We love GK Photography!

George was the first of multiple photographers I planned to meet with to capture our wedding - after we left his office, I called and cancelled all of our other appointments and booked him right away.

By the time we took our engagement photos we felt like we already knew them both so well. The engagement session was so much fun and the pictures were fantastic! He made us feel so comfortable! When it was time for the wedding, both George and Tim came to shoot. I had never met Tim before, but I trusted that George was comfortable with his work. He also turned out to be fantastic and so easy to work with. I have two older sisters who were married before me, and both said how great George was and how smooth everything went compared to their photographers. We didn't feel like we had to pose the entire time. He did a fantastic job of capturing the moments as they actually took place and not having to recreate things like putting on my shoes or getting my makeup done. He laughed and joked with us the whole time which made everything so much fun. I could go on and on about our experience but the point is... you can't find a better photographer than GK!
