Neal Kreuser photography is an EXCELLENT choice to capture your special day! He shot our wedding at La Mariposa and every single picture is amazing. We did the 'Cherish' package so we actually had two photographers for 8 hours plus a mini 'enga...
gement' shoot. This mini shoot is great because you get to interact with Neal as a couple and get to know him so come the big day he is a familiar face. The 2 photographers on wedding day is definitely the way to go! With so much going on, one photographer cannot be in all places at once. Neal did pictures with the fancy light and the other photographer used natural light to get a variety of picture lighting 'looks' throughout our day. We also have a lot of different angles and views from the ceremony from the 2 photographers which provided some of my favorite pictures! Two photographers is also great because while everyone is getting ready, one photographer can be with the bridal party and one can be with the groomsmen, both capturing great moments! Plus, don't you want to know what your husband did all day?(: Neal is SO good with making everything seem natural and normal! He actually got my husband to laugh at his jokes for a natural and relaxed look on suuuch a high-energy stressed day. (:
I did ALOT of research before picking a photographer (because of the pricing) and this is definitely the way to go. Although this price may seem expensive, take in mind you get EVERY SINGLE PHOTO TAKEN at the wedding TO KEEP FOREVER sent to your home on a CD the WEEK after the wedding!! I think my total picture count was nearly 4,000 pictures. (Other photographers you have to buy the pictures separate after the wedding shoot price, so be aware!) You also get 100 professionally edited photos by Neal himself! We thought ALL the pictures already looked edited from the original CD, so you can only imagine how perfect these ones are! (:
Neal is AMAZING at what he does! He captured moments of such incredible joy, overflowing excitement, and raw emotion throughout the entire day/night. Being the bride, I was so caught up in all my own emotions and getting ready, I didn't get to see everyone else and their "wedding day experience." HOWEVER, Neal captures EVERYTHING and it is so much fun to look back on such an important day in your life and see your own plus everyone else's facial expressions, tears, laughter, and priceless moments that you didn't even realize were happening when they were happening.
Our wedding ran about 30 minutes over and Neal STAYED to capture our sparkler exit with no extra fee or anything. He truly loves what he does. I recommend booking early, because Neal is very popular!
I absolutely recommend Neal to capture such a special day for everyone! Pictures are so important to have and to love. In 50 years, besides your rings, all you will have to look back on your wedding day is the pictures so you want them to be perfect in every way!! (:
Congratulations and good luck with wedding planning brides!! You've totally got this! (:
