I had booked AVR for our photography before even having officially chosen a venue. I met Paul at a Bridal Show that turned out to be my venue. AVR was the first vendor I stop to speak with. Paul immediately had me captivated. He showed my bridal party and I his work, wedding albums, and prices. I booked him the very next day! I emailed him several times and he was always quick to respond. A week before my wedding I decided to book AVR for videography. It was the best decision I have ever made. My wedding took place on Sept. 4, 2016. We had both video and photography for 6 hrs. Paul ended up being the videographer. He was very engaging and had the best personality throughout the night. Our pictures came out beautiful they were shot by Marion and an intern. The video however, blew the photos out of the water. We laughed and cried. Every magical moment was captured. We had 100 guests and they showed up plenty of times throughout the video. It was evident Paul was any and everywhere there was action. We were so pleased with the services. Pictures arrived 10-14 days after the wedding we had close to 1000 shots. The video arrived about a month after the wedding. The video was worth every penny! I can't recall how long the video is I was worried it would be short but it was far from it. I was pleased with the length of the video and I just want to watch it over and over again. If I had to do it again, I would pick AVR all over again. The prices are unbeatable and believe it or not, no hidden fees. Forever thankful to Paul for making our special night one we will never forget!

So glad we decided to go with AVR for our videography. It was just what we wanted, a video of the entire ceremony, some of the details, and the entrances and dances, along with some of the dance party too. We were able to customize the video with a few songs of our choice. Thanks!

When talking with Paul on the phone we felt very comfortable with what we were going to be getting for a service. We met Paul and our photography John, and liked the direction in which they wanted to go with the pictures. We decided to have a videographer as well, since we knew the day was going to be a complete blur to us. John took a bunch of photos of us that day, and all the pictures were amazing. We had a tough time picking which photos we liked the best. The video was great, and caught almost all the great moments we had. Only regret he didn't take a video of us taking pictures of the city skyline as we had everyone passing by honking their horns at us. Would have been fun to see on video. Other than that video captured so many moments that we wanted to see again. With the photos and video we know we will be able to relive the day.

I can not say enough about how wonderful Paul and Marion are! They were so great to work with durring the planning process and really helped me figure out what I was looking for. Marion took so many wonderful pictures it was almost impossible to decide which ones to use in our wedding album (which is also amazing!). The video Paul took is great and it is wonderful to have all of our special moments on film! The price was amazing and we got everything we wanted and more! I would highly recomend AVR Photography to anyone looking for a photographer or videographer for their wedding! So pleased! 5 stars all the way!

AVR photography was amazing with everyone at the wedding from the older generation right to my 4 year daughter who has endless energy. Marion is the name of the photographer for our wedding, and I would like to know his secret to getting my daughter to stand still long enough to get such excellent photos. He was happy to take suggestions from anyone at the wedding, and was beyond professional, and still managed to keep everyone laughing while doing his job. My best man readily took charge with suggestions, and Marion quickly responded and coordinated rather get defesive with my best man for even better photos. When my bride and i first met with the photographer we asked him to just have fun, and even experiment with any new ideas he may have for candid, and posed pictures. He took that request to heart and most definitely had alot of fun with all kinds of pictures in all settings that were available to us, and even had some great ideas for generational photos that my bride and I will most definitely treasure.

My husband and I recently got married and had a Fall wedding. When looking for an affordable wedding photographer, we were becoming discouraged until we came upon AVR photography. We had planned our entire wedding on a budget and were not about to spend $3,000 on photography alone. We met with Paul and he was great! Marian was our photographer for our wedding day and we were so happy with him and his services. He was nice, easy going and made taking photos fun. He had some fun props he used to get my niece (flower girl, 5 years old) and my nephew (ring bearer, 3 years old), to smile and giggle. Our photos came out great! We are very happy with them and would highly recommend this company. Not only are they affordable, but they are nice and easy to work with.

When browsing for photographers for our wedding, my fiancé and I were feeling discouraged--until we saw AVR photgraphy. This company is a GREAT value as well as great quality. We had Marian shoot our engagment shoot and he was extremely professional while being fun and putting my fiancé and I at ease. Paul was very easy to get in contact with and was extremely flexible and went above and beyond to help us get what we were looking for. Excellent work and we are super happy with our pictures and I can't wait for our wedding day. II would choose them again in a heart beat!

My husband and I were married in the summer of 2015. We had Marion as a Photographer, and overall, he took decent shots of our wedding. We have 800+ photographs that we received on a disc, and of those, we received hundreds of nice photographs of my bridesmaids and I. There are some nice shots of my husband and I, but not as many as I expected. During our initial meeting, I was shown portfolios of weddings that displayed creative group and couple shots as well. I assumed that these were the types of poses that Marion would use with my group. I was a bit disappointed with the lack of creativity used with my photos. I even specifically remember him talking about how he likes to be creative when doing the large bridal party shots. I was disappointed when his direction for these photos consisted of him calling out "change pose, change pose, change pose" repeatedly after each shot he took. That was really all the direction we got for our full bridal party shots. In that moment, there is so much going on, you don't want to have to worry about posing your own wedding party.
Another thing that I was actually extremely disappointed about was the lack of photos of my husband and his groomsmen. As I said previously, I have literally hundreds of photos with my bridesmaids. Of 800+ photos I received 8 photos of my husband and his groomsmen! Of those, only one of them is actually usable. I contacted Paul to see if he could fix at least one of the 7 photos by replacing the face of someone blinking with their face from a different photo. He tried, but he sent me a photo that was worse than the original. I contacted him to fix it, and I still haven't heard back. This was over 3 months ago. Overall, if photography or creative/candid shots are important to you, spend more money on it. The saying "You get what you pay for" rings true here. The photos/video weren't "bad", but I wish I spent more money on them.

There are 12 pictures of the groom and his men together, plus the groom with each of his ushers and many candid’s of them. We don’t understand why she is listing an incorrect figure.

#2 We had Photoshopped those images she requested and sent those back very quickly and she approved them, for her album. comments she made is incorrect!
#3 Every photographer likes to be creative, but when it is raining outside, you are limited to the reception hall interior.. That was at downstairs stairwell of Bridal Function Hall”


#5 There are over 46 pictures of her father in her DVD.. There are only 2 images in question, where his frame appear to be crooked in those 2 pictures.

# 6 We met the bride at the hotel and she did not relay anything about any type of pictures that she wanted.

#7 She never mentioned to the studio any type of images that she wanted when we went over her wedding day details,
#8 We did not receive any emails, nor did she call to discuss what she was looking for.

#9 The video she received is a High Definition edited video.
1020 X 1980 , Over 100 effects ...Titles / Music
Please view on YOU TUBE search for AVR PHOTOGRAPHY Meaghan & Tony

#10 In her statement above, she mentions nice pictures of her and her husband and closed with “photos/video weren’t bad.” Any photographer (regardless of pricing) would have run into the same situation that day, as we did.
