We had the absolute pleasure of having Geoff and Wendy as our wedding photographers. They were more than happy to allow us to pay for their services around our pay schedules, which for two college students was completely amazing. During our meetings before the wedding neither me... Read More or my husband felt pressured into their services or getting anything "extra." On the day of the wedding was perfect. Wendy actually helped me get into my dress and helped to tie the bow on the back of my dress when my mum was getting a little frustrated with it. Wendy also had an 'emergency' kit with her that included tread and needle, tissues, pins, basically anything that if you needed it she had. I informed Geoff that my brother was several autistic and it was important to me that I get photos of him being himself and not pressured into anything for particular photos. Geoff completely understood and got my brother to look at the camera, but let him be himself, which made the photos that much more special for me. Geoff even grabbed some photos of my brother 'stimming' during a lantern send off, which to me was perfect. For our wedding we had a tight time schedule due to our venue and my wish not to see my husband before the ceremony. We were nervous how that would play with the photographer, but Geoff and Wendy completely took care of what we could and couldn't do before and after the ceremony. It ended up working perfectly. Portrait gallery might cost a little more than some of the other photography companies we looked at, but the services that are included in the price and Geoff and Wendy's personalities are completely worth it.

We've shared web site based wedding photo link with extended family and many friends. We and all of them are totally impressed with the great range and high quality of the photos from Geoff.

The poses and candid shots are really well thought out and attractively unique in many cases, the picture quality is excellent and the photo booth shots truly portray the fun we were having that day. In every way, Geoff did a great job and we are very pleased! We highly recommend him!

One of my earliest childhood memories is opening my grandmothers camp each spring. Our family has had this camp in Charlotte on the shores of Lake Champlain since the 1930s. I would always head for the old family photo albums. I was always fascinated by the old photos. I loved looking back into my family history and seeing times past. I was especially intrigued that there was a time before I was born, and that I was not in it! Now, years later, the obsession continues! I love to capture a real moment, that otherwise would be gone. I can freeze time. For this generation and future ones to come
