Barry took charge. I did not have to worry about a thing. He knew exactly what he was doing. He made numerous suggestions for different shots. He just kept " clicking away." He made me feel very comfortable. One memorable moment was when he took the groom's and best man's flowers from the bridal suite to place them on their tux. Little touches like this made the event even more special. He worked hard. I highly recommend him.

We used Affordable Affairs for our photography, videography and DJ at our wedding on June 1 and could not be more pleased! We had Alejandro for photography...He also did our engagement photos and they came out absolutely beautiful! They did a guest book for us using those photos and we got so many compliments on it. Alejandro was prompt and professional and went out of his way to make sure we got all the shots we wanted on our wedding day. He thought of all the great shots and it was such a weight off our shoulders to know we didn't have to think of creative poses or all the pictures we were going to want. Bryan was our DJ and we also received many compliments on his service... He got people up and dancing and kept the party going! He organized everything wonderfully and stayed on top of the schedule we figured out in our meeting with him. He was also very beneficial in helping us put together the time schedule for the night so people would have the best time at the reception. Although we haven't see the video yet, we know that will be great too since we saw so many others when we met with them...The best part about going with this company is that if you get them for more then one service they all work together and are on the same page at your wedding. Also will mention that they are obviously more affordable then other places but you get top notch quality!

i am in AWE of this company i had possible the best experience any bride could ever ask for. Barry was my go to person for everything and i had few personal issues happen before my wedding and he was so helpful, kind and considerate. My DJ Flo was very outgoing and so well prepared that i couldn't have asked for anything else. My Videographer Robert was very sweet and recorded my important moment. My Pastor Dale was very kind and caring he calmed my nervous big time ( i don't really like being in the spot light but he helped) and the ceremony was very sweet and to the point which is how i like it. Now my Photographer Alejandro was the best person possibly even better than what i would have ever asked for i was anxious and i know i was becoming a pain in the butt but he was so patient with me and caring about my day that i couldn't imagine anyone else doing this job for me. there pricing is reasonable and i seriously recommend this company to everyone doing a wedding the fact that they took time to care about the bride and groom as much as they did is something out of this world. LOVE THEM... next big event i am hiring them again, no hesitation needed!!!!

This is a great deal on photography. This studio offers packages that are very reasonable with the rights to every picture taken on your wedding day. The pictures are good quality pictures and our photographer, Donna, was all over the room snapping every shot. Our sweetheart pictures taken by the bay at twilight were absolutely gorgeous. Ultimately, we were very pleased with our package of over 400 pictures and the fact that it only took 3 weeks to get it.

Barry was awesome!! The pictures turned out beautiful and he took an assortment of pictures so we have pictures of our guests also. He pulled out chairs for me and asked the groom and I if we needed drinks and if everything was okay, which is not in his job description so he really went out of his way to make sure that we were happy on our wedding day. I wouldn't have wished for any other photographer on our wedding day. I would recommend Barry to anyone.

We requested a group picture with all our guests (over 60 people) in the Church altar and he was able to accomodate everyone and take great shots. He even gave some tips to our friend that was taking video for us, for which we are very thankful. Our pictures were available online very quickly - about 3 days after the event. It was delight to work with him and we highly recommend him!

If you are looking for someone to document your day as it was, this is the way to go. I got pictures of me with all of my family, tons of pictures with my and my man and lots of candid shots. There were also a few "perfect" shots...you know...the staged, everything in place, tip your head here, chin up kind of shot.

If you are looking for the artistic style of photography, I would not recomend this.

If you are looking for photos that reflect your day exactly at a good cost...I would highly recommend this.

Brides on a Budget did a great job. Their marketing was excellent!!! The pictures came out good. I love the fact that I own all the rights to my pictures. The things I would change...the lure of all the filters on the cameras...these are effects that can be accomplished with today's modern technology. Also...I love that it was budget friendly but I did not need all my guests to know that...I was on a cheaper budget. At the ceremony they handed out cards to every guest that said "Brides on a Budget" and how to access the photos. Accessing the photos was great but not the part advertising that I had to go cheap. All else was fine.

Cards now read: " Thank You so much for Sharing our Special Day with Us. Our Wedding Photos will be available to View or Purchase on (the Tuesday after the wedding) at www.WeddingBlissPhoto.com. It then has the Bride and Grooms name at the bottom of the Card in Larger letters. This is not a business card and I do not have Brides on a Budget or any reference to us on the card. Also, I do not use Photoshop for special effects. Any that I do (Star or Softening) are done with filters on the camera.

I had a very unique experience. IT happened to be that Barry, the main photgrapher ended up in the hospital the night before my wedding. As can any bride can imagine I panicked for a moment, but I was assured by his wife - who called me from the hospital - that he would send to photgrapher's out, one who specialized in photo journalism (she was amazing) and one who specialized in portrait photgraphy (I'm not a traditionalist). They were great and very nice. The only complaint I have is that I did'nt get a picture with my parents and my brothers, though the church was partly to blame. To this day, it saddens me that I didn't get the photo with my parents. Otherwise, they were great.
