After all these years and so many weddings I’m still kinda anxious about what people will say when someone asks about our work. We always ask our couples to give us a review and let us know how we did? This review was very special. It goes to show choosing a wedding photographer isn’t just about price and pretty pictures it can also be about making you feel wonderful!
Sara was one bride who was not into the “picture thing”. She felt uncomfortable in front of the camera, like many of you do. But it is my job to make that go away. My biggest concern for your wedding day is not creating images for advertising, social media, the venue or some magazine article, IT’S YOU! My concern is making the images you will love, because that’s all that matters!
I am very late on a response to this email. Married life is good. We are almost 5 and 1/2 months pregnant and I’m finally starting to feel better. We were pregnant at the wedding, (we found out three days before) and after the wedding I was very sick. I guess a response is better late then never.
Maybe it’s better I’m doing a review a couple months after the wedding. I mean sure, your memory is better right after when everything is still raw and new, but maybe after a couple month after you’ve thought countless times about the day that got you were you are now, the day you spent the most money, the day were you started your life, is the best.
I lucked out with Kevin York. I was searching for a photographer randomly one night probably at 2 or 3 am,worried about if I’d find the right person, the cost and every wedding horror story I’ve ever heard. I sent in an inquiry online. The reason I feel like I found Kevin was because of my search near the location of where my wedding venue was. The website was professional and many of the images I saw were amazing. I thought yeah, great I won’t be able to get this guy. I got a call from Kevin the next day and I played hardball with him to say the least. My personality was that I was NOT big on getting my picture taken. I just wanted to make sure I had a professional that I know would show up, stay the whole wedding, and get me my pictures. After talking to Kevin, I must say we really hit it off as though we were not strangers. He was personable, he listened to my needs, and was super accommodating. After we talked on the phone we set up engagement pictures. I wasn’t on board at first because again not a fan of pictures but he assured me it’s very important because it will help with the day of the wedding instructions. I can’t tell you enough how true that was. I got the engagement pictures back and I was stunned! I recently lost some weight and I can’t explain the confidence I got just seeing myself in that way. I can see in my pictures in the very beginning I looked a little tense and it looked more unnatural to the middle and end I just looked comfortable and happy. It helped me so much and I know that’s what made the wedding pictures so beautiful.
Day of wedding, Kevin showed up (check) fear number one off the board. He was on time with his assistant. He was ready to get to work immediately. It had just snowed a lot two days before my wedding. Kevin and his assistant were literally on the ground. On the ground. Taking our picture to get good outdoor shots.
My family loved him, they got comfortable right away.
Before the wedding I had filled out a time line to describe how I thought my day should go and Kevin adjusted it to where he knew what was going to happen, what pictures I wanted and just reassuring me that everything about my wedding will be covered.
I must say out of all the vendors, Kevin was probably the easiest to work with. He was always available by phone or email and got back to me right away. He reached out to me first, like during rehearsal at the venue when I saw 10 inches of snow outside and thought well how is this going to work, I got a call from him a second later and he just made me feel better and said make sure I bring some snow boots. Everything went so well and my pictures are so great. I am not good at reviews but I feel like I covered everything. If I had to do it again I would use Kevin York as my photographer. Thank you for everything and letting me see myself in this way it has actually in a way bettered my life knowing that I look year way and I will always see myself like this for years to come.
For someone who was NOT big into pictures, Sara you did awesome! The secret…… JUST BE YOU!
