Finding the perfect photographer was one of my top priorities after we got engaged, but unlike some of our other vendors, we had no idea where to start. Luckily for us, we ended up winning a photography package from Timothy Whaley at a local bridal expo and the choice was made for us! Everyone who works for TWA that we had contact with, from Nick, who walked us through the initial introduction and contract process, to Mikhail our photographer, to Amy who is working with us to complete our album, is amazing! They are friendly, helpful, and extremely talented. We received our proofs about three weeks after the wedding and had a great reveal session with all of our options. The purchase of an album is required (and part of your contract so read carefully!) and I’m excited to create one of our first family heirlooms. I’m very happy with the photos we received (almost 800!) and Mikhail is extremely talented and patient, even when faced with a large and very chaotic family that doesn’t always pay attention when they need to. I’ve been looking at the proofs constantly since receiving them and everyone I show them to has been blown away by the quality. TWA, while in a slightly higher price bracket than some other photographers, is worth the money. We wanted to put money into something that would remind us just how amazing our wedding was, and we have definitely gotten what we paid for.

Thank you so much, Samantha + Dustin! We loved working with you, congratulations on your wedding. We are thrilled to have been part of your day!
