“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!! “

Kevin was such a pleasure to work with! He did everything we asked for and was great at being flexible when we had to improvise due to one of the groomsmen being late. He was so creative and dealt with my photo-crazy family with ease! He was so fun and professional at the same time and I can’t wait to see all my beautiful wedding photos! Doug was great to work with as well when we initially made contact and were selecting our photographer. He was great at working with our budget and still delivering an amazing package. Gina was fantastic as well with communication and keeping everything organized! Highly recommend Candid Moments!

Doug was truly amazing. From our home, to the Boardwalk, to the rides and into the Ocean (yes, the Ocean), Doug never missed a beat. During the reception he seemed to be everywhere. Quietly, blending in and getting the shots. Doug truly made our day. Thanks so very much!!!

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 Doug and Adam as our photographers for our wedding and we could not be happier with that decision. I learned of Candid Moments at a bridal show and the pictures they had on display left a lasting impression. I knew then that I had found my photographer; I just had to convince my fiance! At our first meeting with Doug, we felt so comfortable with him and knew that he would be able to “capture the moments”. He then let us create our own engagement session to reflect our personalities and relationship. Our story came to life in his pictures. On the day of our wedding, both Doug and Adam were so professional, yet they seamlessly became part of our family that day. They both helped to take my wedding day perfectionist nerves completely away. Adam even gave me his coat in between photo sessions on our chilly November afternoon. Doug and Adam captured moments we never knew happened and have left us with images we will treasure forever. Candid Moments Photography has found forever clients in us!

You won’t go wrong choosing Candid Moments as your photographer!! Doug was great to work with and captured the most amazing photos from our special day. He & his team deserve 5 stars because I feel that they go above and beyond. They do a lot of prepping BEFORE the big day so that you can be stress free & just enjoy the day while they get all the perfect pictures with your assigned guests as previously discussed. Would work with them again & would recommend them to anyone!!

Could not even describe our true delight and enormous satisfaction with the photos from my daughters wedding — every detail that was put into the wedding was caught by the sensational photographic skills and expertise of Doug and his team. So many people have looked at the trailer and now the photos and everyone is commenting about them catching the right moments and they felt they were there with us – this is a talent that is rarely caught on camera. Thank you so much for letting us be ourselves and thrilled we found YOUR TEAM to catch my daughters very special day to her best friend. YOU ARE TRULY AMAZING AND GIFTED!!!!!!

Working with Candid Moments Photography was an amazing experience! First off, the communication was great. Gina and Doug made sure to keep us updated and answered all of our questions. They also led us in the direction of a first look, something we are so happy to have done! We picked Kevin as our photographer because of his reviews of making the process relaxing – something an anxious bride like me greatly appreciated! Kevin and Adam, our second photographer, really kept the flow of the photographs relaxed and fun. All our family and friends loved them! Jeff and I had a bit of a mishap and needed to do some of the family pictures during cocktail hour, but Kevin and Adam were able to get them ALL done in time for us to still enjoy a part of the cocktail hour, something both Jeff and I greatly appreciated. We got to see some of the pictures Kevin took and can NOT wait to see the finished products in a few weeks. We highly recommend Candid Moments along with Kevin and Adam!

Candid Moments was the vendor we enjoyed working with the most! Doug and Gina were extremely responsive and professional. Gina always kept us informed on what to expect before our meetings, coordinated our the engagement photo shoot and wedding day details and was extremely helpful designing our wedding album.
We had Doug and Daniel as our wedding photographers and loved all the pictures they took. Doug made us feel super comfortable right from our first meeting. He made sure he got all the shots I requested and also got tons of great candid pictures.
We’re so glad we chose Candid Moments to photograph our wedding. We love all our pictures, the slideshow they made for us and our beautiful album!
