First off, Paul and Tammy are AMAZING!! They are seriously everything we could have asked for. We are from the Cedar Rapids area and they drove from Des Moines to capture our engagement pictures and our wedding. And I have to say, there wasn't a picture I didn't like. They are... Read More such a fun duo to work with and will do anything you ask them to do. I can't express enough my gratitude to them. Every little smirk or happy moment during our wedding and engagement session was captured in a photograph. They also get your proofs back to you very quick. We had our wedding proofs back in 2 weeks. Lastly, my favorite part about their work is the highlight video they send along with music of your engagement and wedding. I will forever hold those videos close to my heart. If I could give 1000 star rating I definitely would!

If we could give Paul and Tammy more than 5 stars, we would. They were phenomenal from start to finish, from our first meeting, to the engagement session, and then finally, our wedding day. We were completely at ease the entire time, they are lightening fast (which is awesome if... Read More you don't love getting your picture taken) and they are just the most professional, experienced team when it comes to getting the job done and managing a lot of family members. Paul helped my husband with his tie, and Tammy made sure I had everything in the right place. They really were experts on all the logistics and intricacies of weddings and made the day so relaxing and FUN! We couldn't be more pleased with Red Door.

A+++++ Let me just start by saying if picking a wedding photographer had been up to me, I would have gone with whoever was cheapest. I'm VERY glad my wife made the executive decision to go with Paul and Tammy. It's easy to look at their pictures and see they do great work, but... Read More what impressed me the most about them wasn't their pictures (which turned out great btw). It was how much smoother and organized our day was because of them. Yeah they were our photographers, but I felt like we had two very experienced coaches/ wedding planners making sure everything was going as planned and everyone was having fun. They were a huge part of our day and it definitely wouldn't have been the same without them. Also, get the slide show at the reception, you won't regret it. We got tons of compliments about it and it was definitely one of my favorite parts of the reception. Keep in mind this is coming from someone whose biggest goal going into this thing was get married for as cheap as possible. Thanks Paul and Tammy you guys are awesome!!
