“Hi K+ J, I wanted to write to you on behalf of Mark & Elizabeth from White Album Weddings. I spent close to a decade working with very high end wedding photographers in Washington, DC and Los Angeles, as a photo editor and album designer, so I have seen all kinds of weddings, and most importantly, A LOT of wedding photos! My husband is also an artist with very specific sensibilities, so needless to say, when we were searching for photographers for our wedding, we were VERY particular. We had a hard time finding someone whose work really stood out in a positive way, and who we thought would really give us a personal experience, photographing OUR wedding, not just photographing A wedding. When we looked at White Album Weddings, we could tell Mark & Elizabeth were these types of photographers. The fact that they are a husband and wife team was really special to us as well, because my husband and I are also partners in every aspect of our lives, and we knew Mark & Elizabeth would really understand that. When we met them, we loved the way they interacted and understood each other, their openness, warmth and excitement.
Mark & Elizabeth love cuddly, sweet, intimate moments; they get you to relax and have fun, and they have fun with you! But they will never be interruptive of your day or inconsiderate of your personalities. Because the actual day goes by in such a blur, it’s really important to have photographers who capture all the little moments and expressions that make your wedding special, because in the end, the photos are the one lasting thing (and the only way you’ll truly get to see your wedding!). My entire family adored Mark and Elizabeth, and commented afterwards on their kindness, professionalism and unobtrusiveness. Everyone loves the photos and how Mark & Elizabeth were so tuned in to the experience we wanted for ourselves and our guests; they captured the intimacy, emotion and personal touches of our wedding, beautiful expressive portraits but no cheesy staged shots… in short, nothing that wasn’t “us” and everything that was!
Whatever the style of your wedding and with so many details to think about, rest assured knowing one thing you can relax about is your photographers! Enjoy your wonderful day! Best wishes, Cara (visit Cara’s website HERE
