Doug and Gina at Candid Moments Photography came as a recommendation. After seeing Doug’s photo’s from another wedding, we knew that he took amazing pictures. From the minute we sat down to talk to Doug, he made us feel at ease and we knew that he would be able to take any shots we wanted him to. We were able to get a feel for how he worked while doing our engagement photos. He made us feel completely comfortable (despite the oddly frigid temperatures in late April). The day of the wedding, he arrived a few hours early to scope out the grounds of the venue so he could make sure to get some really great shots. We had my niece and 2 nephews, 6 and 4 years old, and he not only got them to stay still, and pose, but he got them to have some really great smiles. We can’t wait to get our pictures back so we can see how well they turn out.
Don’t look any further… went to friend’s wedding and she recommended, and we used and we loved! Had two amazing photographers- made you feel comfortable (we are very camera shy), Lead photographer Doug and 2nd photographer Kevin. Did first look photos and really were able to enjoy the day spent with the bridal party and the groom’s party and family! prompt responses to emails- assistant Gina amazing! Photos are gorgeous and arrived quickly after the wedding and they truly lived up to their name and captured moments I didn’t even realize had happened 🙂 Can’t say enough great things- thanks so much for the memories 🙂
We found Candid Moments when we were looking through photo books at our venue, and as soon as we saw the beautiful landscape photos at sunset, we were sold. Doug was great to work with from the beginning, and is an incredible artist. Gina was also very helpful in coordinating our photos and providing all of the necessary details, and she was always so friendly. We were beyond impressed with our engagement photos, which made us even more excited for the wedding photos. We received our wedding photos today, and I hope it says something that I am already writing the review. We were completely blown away by the emotion, love and happiness caught on film. Doug and Georgi represented who my husband and I are as a couple beautifully, as well as our family and friends. Not only were they great photographers, but they also helped organize the day and keep us on schedule. I am now so thrilled to have the gorgeous sunset photos of my own that I fell in love with a year and a half ago. Candid Moments will absolutely exceed your expectations for your wedding! THANK YOU!
Let me start off with saying that my husband and I are not the most naturally photogenic people and never know how to pose for proper photos. Doug was so instrumental in placing us in flattering, beautiful ways that we love all of our engagement and wedding pictures! We were also extremely lucky to have some very unique photos in the dark woods and under an umbrella in the rain on our wedding day. Doug and Gina were so organized and very responsive to our questions and any concerns before and after the wedding. We had a lot of fun taking photos and are so happy with how it all turned out!
We highly recommend Candid Moments Photography! From our meeting with Doug the Owner and Adam, whom we booked as our engagement and wedding photographer, to our emails with Gina the Studio Manager, Candid Moments Photography has been wonderful and professional to deal with. They were prompt and clear in their responses to our questions and, perhaps most importantly, we love our photographs!! I love looking at our photographs because I feel like they really captured us and who we are together. On our wedding day, Adam and our second photographer Mike were on time, came with back-up equipment, helped us wrangle our large wedding party, and made sure we felt comfortable during our photographs – even though both my husband and I find it awkward when posing for photographs. Though it rained on our wedding day, Adam and Mike helped turn that into a positive by capturing some amazing photographs of us outside in the rain under a large umbrella.
We had Adam as our only photographer for our February 27th wedding and November 20th Engagement Photo shoot. We loved him! From the moment we met him we just hit it off. We only really met with him to be honest, but after my Husband and Adam discussed living in Binghamton and the meaning of life (44), it was so clear we had to go with Adam. He is funny, creative and super wonderful to work with. His pictures are simply put, stunning! It was really important to us that we have action shots and pictures that reflected who we were and how happy we were. Plus we are silly and that really helped when it came to working with Adam because he is a little silly too! We hated posed pictures that felt to us very fake and disingenuous and Adam was able to help us achieve that goal. The action shots from our wedding ceremony and especially our first dance were unbelievable. He capture things I couldn’t even imagine. If you are looking for an amazing photographer who will capture all the little things, then he is your man hands down! We also had an amazing experience with Gina who handled all the scheduling and emails and Doug who managed our edits. The entire staff are kind, courteous and professional. It was such a pleasure to work with Candid Moments!
We were beyond pleased with Candid Moments Photography. Adam was our photographer for our engagement photos and wedding. He did an amazing job. He is very passionate about photography, and we couldn’t ask for a better person to document our special day. Many of our guests raved about the pictures, and a few of our friends will be using Candid Moments for their upcoming weddings! Candid Moments Photography is the way to go when choosing your specie event photographer!
“My wife and I used Candid Moments for our wedding back in July of 2015. Out of all of the various elements that are coordinated before, during, and even after the wedding, we found that Doug (main photographer) and Rustin (secondary photographer used during the day) were the most easy-going wedding professionals to deal with. We were completely blown away with the level of photography we received with Candid Moments. On the actual wedding day, Doug was assigned to be with the Bride and her bridesmaids while Rustin came with the guys. I would absolutely recommend having two photographers as we felt that they were able to capture both sides of the “story” leading up to the big event. Not only were Doug and Rustin professional, but they were so easy to deal with, as stated above. I have been to other weddings where it’s pretty much the photographers way or the highway and that was not the case at all. Doug and Rustin gave us recommended photography shots based on our beautiful wedding location and insisted that we did certain shots during specific times of day to capture the light and sunset. We trusted them both and were in awe of the final product. It’s also important to mention that we used a videographer as well as a photographer, but they were not the same company. In all honesty, you couldn’t tell that these two teams didn’t meet before. The level of professionalism amongst the two of them was outstanding. There were moments throughout the evening that both teams wanted to capture the same shot and they worked so well with one another – another reason why we felt like the day went so smoothly. The process of creating the final wedding book could not have gone any better and we are so happy with the final product! In the end, I would highly recommend Candid Moments to any one who is getting married. There is a reason they receive 5 stars across the board. Thanks again!! “
Our photographer, Rustin, was awesome. Our engagement shoot made us feel very relaxed. He captured our vision perfectly. We were nervous and freezing the day of our wedding (Thanksgiving weekend), and he kept us calm and collected. All of our guests were commented on how professional he was during the whole event. He was very easy-going and always ready to take any photos we requested. We can’t wait to see our finished wedding photos!
I could not be happier that my husband and I chose Candid Moments as our wedding photographer!! From the first time we met with Doug our decision was already made. He is so professional and does outstanding work and he is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. They (Doug and Gina) kept in touch with me during wedding planning and were very thorough about what would happen on our big day. I even received compliments from some guests saying how professional our photographer was. My husband and I got a sneak peak at some of our pictures and they made us cry. They are beautiful!!! We can’t wait to see them. I would definitely recommend Candid Moments to anyone!!! Thank you guys!
