“There is no way I can put into words how amazing working with Echard has been. From the first time I met with him, I was infused with a quiet excitement that ended up being a magical part of our wedding day. I’m not crazy about pictures of myself and the necessity of photographing so many moments when you are unaware, not posing… it was daunting.

After the first few moments of actual shooting on the day of the wedding, every fear dropped away. I forget he was there, which has resulted in some of the most gorgeous pictures of my husband and I that I have ever seen. And they aren’t just wedding pictures. Somehow, Echard was able to capture the joy and happiness of that day, the way it reverberated within us and create a story of laughter and beauty of that day and the people around us.

On the more clinical end, the process from booking until day-of has been incredibly smooth. Echard is very responsive which was a must for me when I was so incredibly busy in the year before and leading up to the wedding. Plus, I could ask him the same question three times and he was always patient and gave me a quick answer. For his quality of work and competition in the area, the all the values have definitely earned strong 5s.

Also, if you can swing it in the budget and space, do the {un}Photobooth. Everyone looks incredibly and watching leads to participating. We got our whole family (10 people I think) in once fun group shot. And we all have supermodel skin and eyes.

I cannot recommend Echard enough. (We are even hoping to book him for a big family photo adventure.) Remember that after the food is eaten and the toasts have been made and the last dance has been danced, your pictures are what survives. Put a great photographer in your budget and you will have timeless images to treasure and show off to your grandkids.

Thanks to Echard, I’ll be able to say “Wasn’t Grandma a hottie?”
