Can't say enough good things about him. He brought an extra cameraman (we only paid for 1). Was extremely friendly and most importantly took awesome photos.

The best advice I could give to any bride-to-be would be to make your
photographer the #1 on your priority list. The day of your wedding
truly does fly by. Think about it- you wear the dress for one day,
listen to the DJ for a few hours, eat the cake (that is if you are
lucky enough to sit down long enough to have one bite), but the photos
of your day will be with you forever. I cherish the photos from my
wedding day. I look at them all the time and it brings back so many
wonderful memories of the happiest day of my life. I am so glad that I
chose James to capture all of those special memories. Not only did he
catch every meaningful moment, but he was a delight to have around.
Our friends and family really felt comfortable around him, which
resulted in a lot of really great candids that another photographer
may not have been able to capture. He was more like a really fun guest
than a hired vendor. I could not be happier with the photos I received
from A Love Story Photography and recommend James highly to any other
brides out there.

I would say that James was first of all a great guy. Also, As an amateur photographer myself, I could say that James was very professional and also very creative and open minded with the pictures. He basically treated each photo like an almost individual project and really did the best he could to make our event an unforgettable one.

A Love Story Photo did a fantastic job on my wedding day. I only booked one photographer as part of my package for my wedding day (which was supposed to be James) and both Kiva and James showed up on the day of - an awesome surprise to have a second shooter! :) Kiva did our 1st engagement shoot and did an awesome job and had the photos posted on the website within the week and we had our disc by the following weekend! When it was a horribly cold/windy weekend for our engagement shoot, Kiva pulled through but offered us a second shoot in the spring because he felt like he hadn't done enough (but we though he did fantastically!), so we got a second shoot in the spring and that time we got both Kiva and James. The photos from both shoots came out amazingly and Kiva and James were so fun to work with. They really care about getting the perfect shot, and have a great eye for taking fantastic photos! They don't want to nickel and dime you, so you get the rights to all your photos and a high-resolution disc of your edited photos is all yours! They shoot exclusively weddings (TTD, Engagement shoots, Weddings) so their focus is solely on that area (not family shots, baby pictures, etc.). They were a little out of our price range, but the quality of their work is WORTH IT!

We worked with KIVA so glad we did. He is really great and so easy to get along with. We loved our photos and there was a quick turnaround for them. My husband was one of those who wanted to just throw disposable cameras on the tables and let the guests take the pictures he admits now he was wrong really wrong. He's very happy with the results of Kiva!

Kiva did a great job. He is fun and creative and has a clear passion for photography. It's clear that he loves his job. We did an engagement shoot in NYC on a very hot summer day and dragged him all over the city. After about 10 hours (no exaggeration), we called it a day but he was still willing to go longer. Similar story on our wedding day - we didn't allocate enough for getting ready and lost time taking photos pre-ceremony. Kiva and his partner stayed POST-wedding (well after the hours we had agreed to) because he wanted to make sure we got all the photos we wanted. He was by the far the best vendor that we worked with.

When we planned our wedding we knew we wanted to choose the best photographer we could find. 'A Love Story Photo' delivered ... and produced the best wedding photos we've ever seen. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a collection of photos they'll look back at for years to come. VERY easy to work with, and definitely the photographer I'll go with for any future events requiring a photographer. We have over 600 photos from our wedding day ... such high quality that any one of them could be framed.

To me, picking the perfect photographer for our wedding was the most important part of the planning process. A Love Story Photo was recommended to us by a friend. After meeting with them, we knew they were the perfect choice for us! Our pictures came out better than we could have ever expected! Our friends and family are still raving about how excellent our photographer was! My husband and I recommend them to EVERYONE!!

Our photographer was key to helping this stressed out bride relax and have fun prior to the walk down the aisle. Having him there for "getting ready" photos really put me at ease and set the tone for the rest of the day. At the reception, it was a pleasant surprise to see a computer slideshow of our photos. Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful and creative the shots were - and we couldn't agree more! A Love Story Photo was also very mindful of our budget and helped us create a package that allowed us to afford such a fabulous photographer. We would recommend A Love Story Photo in a heartbeat.

On both a professional and a personal level, I really appreciated the time that Love Story Photo spent on both our wedding day and our engagement photo shoot. They are very flexible on where we wanted our photos taken and they had very good recommendations on where to take pictures. Additionally, they are willing to go the extra mile and take the extra time for you. Without reservation, I recommend Love Story Photo.

We were so pleased with our photographer from a love story photo, words cannot even describe the gratitude we feel for having such amazingly beautiful memories of our wedding day. From the moment we meant our photographer all the way to the follow up phone calls after recieving our proofs, he was professional, had a great sense of humor, a real appreciation for our personalities and most of all am amazing artist. The shots our photographer was able to capture were nothing short of amazing...from lying on the church floor to lying on the sand of the beach, nothing was impossible for that day. My family and friends are still talking about what an amazingly gifted photographer we had for our wedding day...lucky for them they got a sneak peak at some of the pics on the Mac set up at our reception! If I had to do it all again, I wouldn't choose anyone else with photographing the most amazing day of our lives!
Thanks again A Love Story!!!

"A Love Story Photography" photographed my wedding in September of 2009, but they did so much more. Capturing memories and "once in a lifetime moments" seems to be their expertise. Just when you thought your wedding day was perfect, you see the photos that they took and it gets so much better. We also had them shoot our engagement photos as well as our "trash the dress" photos. If you have an out of this world idea that you want to try, they will make it happen. They went above and beyond any expectation that me or my wife had. They will bend until they break to make sure that you get exactly the photos you want and you will look amazing in them.

A Love Story Photography created just that -- "A LOVE STORY"! He captured every moment with such enthusiasm and pizazz! His pictures are sure to WOW anyone. My husband and I were extremely happy with his work. Starting out with our engagement shoot at the Amusement Park gave us a real taste at just how far this photographer would go to capture the perfect picture and have fun doing it. We spent a full day with him and it was like hanging out with someone you've known for years. The wedding photos were just as amazing and carried on through our "Trash the Dress" session with his willingness to try any & every idea we could come up with! We have absolutely NO regrets with our choice and if we had to do it all over again, we would choose him again! To ALL future brides & grooms - if you're looking for AMAZING photos - this is the photographer to choose!

Kiva with A Love Story Photography provided outstanding, professional service for our engagement shoot and wedding day photography. From the first meeting, A Love Story Photography was genuinely invested in our special day and exceeded our expectations on every level. The quality of the photos are amazing and captured the "little things" that you miss when you are the bride and groom. A Love Story created memories for us that we will cherish forever. When you are planning a big event like a wedding you meet so many vendors and work with multiple companies and professionals. My husband and I both agree that A Love Story Photography was the THE BEST service we used for our wedding..we would recommend them to EVERYONE!! We love you Kiva!

If I could give 10.0 instead..I would!!

My wife and I stumbled on ALSP when searching for a Wedding Photographer. The second we saw the work, we both agreed that we had to have this style of photography for our wedding! It was not only the final result which was just unbelievable, it was also the relationship that we cultivated and still have along with the interaction at the actual wedding. When you have guests at your wedding asking who that photographer is and complimenting on his interaction with the crowd, man that makes you feel like you made the exact, right choice!

I highly reccomend ALSP for your wedding photography or for any occasion. You will be getting hands down the "Best" value and photographs that will capture the memories of your wedding days events from the time you wake up until the time you are saying goodbye to everyone. A++++++

Every one of our pictures from A Love Story Photo looks like it could be a magazine cover. Our photographer was extremely artistic and talented. The guests at our wedding had a sneak peak during the reception of his photos on his mac and we were told by every one that these were the best wedding photos they have ever seen. It poured on our wedding day but our photography made the most of the rain and captured some of the most unique photos I have ever seen. I knew the moment I saw his work that this was the best photographer I could ever find and he did not disappoint.

We valued the photography at our wedding above all else because we knew that it was the only tangible way to remember our day forever.

We interviewed a few photographers and weren't impressed with their work or the stoggy style (boring formal poses, processional lines and generic approach to "our special day"). Then we met with A Love Story and it was a match made in heaven. Their work was breath-taking and I remember thinking, "If they can make ME look like they - beautiful, graceful - they will be miracle workers" because I am not photogenic. AT ALL.

We chose A Love Story for our wedding photography and it turns out, they are miracle workers. Our pictures are nothing short of amazing. Every one is a piece of art. Every one is more beautiful than the next. A Love Story captured all those little moments with ease, style and grace. Everyone we know has complimented us on our photographs and all our friends who elected other photographers are envious of our outstanding pictures.

We would give A Love Story a 10 if we could!

Thank you for memories of a lifetime.

With so many things to worry about on your wedding the last thing you need to worry about is the photographer. After doing our engagement picture shoot with A Love Story photo I new that would not be a problem. The photographers at a Love Story make taking pictures fun. Then you get the results, the pictures were amazing. We could not wait to share them with our family and friends. A Love Story photo was the perfect choice for us we would recommend them to anyone who wants beautiful pictures and photographers who make the day even more special.
