My husband and I consider ourselves to be artistic in our own right, which is why it was very important to both of us that our photographer share our vision for our special day. We wanted to capture the emotions of our day and I especially wan...
ted it all to be beautiful and warm.
Justin was patient throughout our process, expertly suggesting his ideas but never once over-stepping our wedding-day dreams. In the end, it was a labor of love. And executed perfectly, we wouldn't change a thing.
It started with Justin taking wonderful pictures of our Rehearsal Dinner under the stars with the Downtown LA skyline. The pictures captured the excitement, love, and great energy of our two families coming together. It was so happy to see in anticipation of our day.
Our wedding day, Justin and Gaby were one of the first people that I saw of our vendors. They were up early for sure. Justin shot awesome shots of my girls and I and some great shots of the guys as well. During the ceremony, the shots were much more vintage in style, softer and more nuanced. It takes an expert hand to be able to capture the natural lights at The Cathedral and Justin came through again.
The reception was a blast - and Justin was in the thick of every moment. He also had the unenviable task of having to edit pictures from earlier in the day so that we can show it as a slide show during the reception - it was merely a request from me, a grand idea perhaps, but one that Justin ran with and he knocked it out of the park. I can't forget seeing how our guests were actually glued watching the slide show, captivated by the beautiful photos to be sure, but also impressed that it was shot just mere hours ago! Yes, Justin can do it all - he makes miracles happen :-)
We also used the photobooth that Justin and his team provided. And although I was a little hesitant at first because I didn't know how it would be received by our guests, I was soooo glad we decided to have it. It literally provided us with some of the most fun pictures from the wedding and our guests still comment on it til now (especially the video recording option because no one has seen that elsewhere!)
And the following day, Justin also came over to photograph our After-Wedding Luncheon! Like I said, he went above and beyond the call of duty. The pictures he took there were of our families who were tired but very happy and excited for my husband and I to start our lives together. He became part of our family that day and I don't think there's another photographer we would call moving forward.
Choosing JustinElement was the single most important decision that we made in planning our wedding. Saying that we love our pictures would be an understatement. We know that we will enjoy these photographs throughout our marriage and hope to someday share them with our kids and grandkids. And we look back to our wedding day with fondness because Justin was able to capture that beautiful day for us. Thank you, Justin.
