Ravenna Weddings worked our wedding and we couldn't be more pleased with how they captured our day. Not only were the photos of the highest quality, but Dean and Karen managed to do their jobs quickly and efficiently without being intrusive. That included somehow getting every wedding guest and participant set up for a group photo from high above the reception area. (No small feat, considering the ceremony had just ended and a stocked bar awaited.) That shot was so well done, we used it for our thank-you cards weeks later.
They also use technology for a multi-platform approach. Ravenna shot video of the ceremony. During the reception, they already had a slideshow of photos up and ready for guests to view on a laptop. Soon after, they put together a wedding-photo computer file so we could view each photo, then assemble our own "album" or make prints.
The best part about Ravenna is the fact they're not just photographers, but photojournalists. They know how to tell a story, and the story of our day was told in the frames shot before, during and after the wedding. Not only do we have professionally composed frames of the wedding party and ceremony, but Ravenna captured priceless candid moments: the father of the bride directing a wayward young ring bearer, three kid ushers pulling on socks and getting help with first-time ties, the bride laughing at her groom's unscripted wisecrack at the altar.
Ravenna did more than take pretty photos of our wedding. They captured the joy of our day.
