“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!! “

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!

After a lot of research and looking at so many photographers work, I was fortunate enough to find Candid Moments Photography at a bridal show. The owner, Doug Burns, was so kind and I was so impressed with him and his work that I knew that I wanted to have him photograph our wedding. We first met with Doug at his studio where he showed us more of his work, as well as his other photographers work and also went over in detail packages and pricing. He was extremely professional and took a genuine interest in getting to know more about us personally. While all of his team of photographers do outstanding work we decided to go with Doug because we really loved the artistry of his photos. We definitely made a fantastic decision! We just recently received our photos and are completely thrilled with them! Our wedding day went by so quickly and it was so hard to remember a lot because so much was happening, but Doug was wonderful in having captured all of the moments we were missing as well as the moments we were caught up in! He was so friendly and easy to work with and so many people, especially my mom, commented on how much they liked him. Also, I must mention how fabulous his Studio Manager, Gina, is – she was so quick to respond to any questions I had as well as constantly communicating with us before and after the wedding. Lastly, a very big “THANK YOU!’ to Candid Moments Photography for such a beautiful and amazing job!

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.

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!

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 🙂

There aren’t words to describe my satisfaction with Candid Moments Photography. From the first time we met with Doug and saw his portfolio and what a kind, easy to talk to person he was we knew we had to have him. Once we had our engagement photoshoot we had no questions that it was the right decision. Not only were the photos completely breath-taking (on a day with no so favorable weather, about 40 degrees and high winds..) he remained professional, fun to work with and gave us an amazing product. The day of our wedding we had the privilege to have Doug and Kevin photograph our day and they really did feel like part of our family. They made sure that we got amazing shots but were never demanding or bossy– they gave us options and ultimately let us do what we felt we wanted to do to get the most out of our big day. Our friends and family all said how much they enjoyed being photographed by the team at Candid Moments and how having them there to capture the day just enhanced their experience— it never felt like outsiders watching us, they just felt like they belonged. My husband and I were worried about looking staged or posed but these guys have such an amazing way at getting you to have fun and be yourself while still making sure that you get that shot that you wanted. I would also be remiss to not include Gina, who did the communicating and coordination, she was a true pleasure to work with and always responded in such a prompt and helpful way. I will tell anyone that asks that booking with Candid Moments is the best decision we made as part of our wedding day and know that we will not only treasure our photos for a lifetime but also the experience of working with these amazing people. You will not regret booking with them it was worth every penny!!!

I used Candid Moments for my wedding on July 8th, 2017. Kevin was the lead photographer and Adam was the 2nd photographer. They were absolutely amazing! We said that we wanted a lot of candid photos that captured the story of the day (because we didn’t have a videographer) and that’s exactly what they did. They were both laid back and easy to work with. The followed our plan exactly and had great ideas for shots. They worked quickly through our list of photos and made sure to get all the ones we wanted. Our photos are stunning and we cannot wait to get them developed and frame them in our home. Thank you Kevin and Adam!

Doug is an AMAZING photographer. He caught amazing “candid moments” along with every single formal shot we could imagine. The lighting, focus, and ability to keep everyone feeling comfortable with a camera are just a few of the things this company is amazing at. Doug is easygoing, flexible, and always fabulous with time management. Our memories will truly last a lifetime with these photos! Adam was our second photographer, and provided incredible images from some out-of-the-box angles, some from places we didn’t even realize he’d adventured to to get the perfect shot! The vibe we got from Doug and Adam kept us feeling easygoing and free to have our day flow, and they truly were a big part of making it flow smoothly! THANK YOU a million times over, you are the best!

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.
