Fantastic work! We are so happy we chose AVR to film our wedding day celebration. From our first appointment to the big day’s conclusion, Paul was nothing short of a true professional! He had all the angles covered, capturing every little detail form the quiet intimate moments, to the exciting dance floor moves. Paul was so easy to work with and kept things stress free and easy! He was attentive to our request and creative with his suggestions.
The final video was delivered shortly after the wedding and came out amazing! Well beyond our expectations. Each time we replay the video for family or friends we get a chance to relive that special day and see all the moments we otherwise would have missed. Everyone is always so impressed with the quality the video production and we couldn’t be happier ourselves. We highly recommend AVR to anyone looking for a top notch videographer! Thanks Paul.

Paul at ARV was so kind and made the whole process so easy, and enjoyable. We had both a video and photos done. AVR was affordable enough to choose to do both, and we are so happy we did! We received a beautiful 2 hour long video a couple months after our wedding that was beautifully edited and captured all the special moments, that were so great to see from a different perspective! All the photos were sent a couple weeks after the wedding, we were expecting it to take much longer!
Two men were there on our wedding day, both extremely nice and funny. One was doing photos and the other recording every second on video. They were there the entire day, from us getting ready in the bridal suite, 'til the very end of the reception, to capture every moment.
Photos and video of your wedding day are not something to take lightly when planing your wedding, if you try to save money on a photographer your photos may come out bad, and those are something you can never get back as your wedding only happens once. And video is a must, I know everyone who hasn't gotten one regrets it! It is something you and your family will cherish forever. With AVR you are getting kindness, reliability, and quality! We definitely reccomend AVR photography to anyone in the area!

Posted elsewhere, but wanted to here as well! We hired AVR/Paul for our wedding in July, 2013. I actually knew about this company because he did the pictures and video for my sister's wedding in August 2011. My whole family felt he was a dedicated, professional for their wedding, and the pictures were beautiful. They had a beach wedding and he did a fantastic job capturing the background. He was easy to work with, listened to the bride's requests and took thousands of pictures on her big day. I was very impressed with the package she was able to get for the pictures and video (we both love the way the video came out! Definitely worth it!) Obviously I would not hire someone for my own wedding unless I was satisfied with their previous work. Overall, when the time came for my own wedding, I searched around for a photographer and kept getting dismayed by the high asking prices. I was trying to keep my wedding wonderful, but reasonably priced, and AVR photographer certainly met that standard. Paul showed up to my venue earlier than requested. He was ready to go as soon as we were ready. He took photos while all the girls helped me with final touches, and as the groomsmen got ready. He was very good about listening to my requests (and those of my bridesmaids) for the shots we all wanted. He was flexible with location, timing, group photos, ect. I also hired AVR for video and I LOVE my video too! Great quality.
At the end of it all, we walked away with thousands of pictures to choose from...he had them up on his website within DAYS. I was still on my honeymoon!! The actual cd files came with weeks! He gave us ALL of the originals as well. We had an album as part of our package and we are very happy with that too. He made the process very easy for us. He responded to all my emails/calls immediately each time we tried to contact him as well. Oh and the video came within months too. You really get great quality pictures at a great deal price-wise through this company.

Paul did a wonderfull job taking pictures at our wedding. The quality of his photos are amazing. He responds quickly to emails and phone calls (which in my book is very important!). He is also very personable and profressional. AVR's prices are very good - much lower than other local photographers. Ususally a lower price means lower quality - but not with AVR - they are top notch! I will certinally look to AVR for any of my future photography needs!

When we were shopping for photographers, we did NOT want to go with a big company. There are a few of them - you don't meet your photographer until the day of, and so you have no sense of their style or personality.

Paul is a far better value than these big companies. As an independent photographer, you meet with him well in advance to discuss your wants and needs for your wedding day. We knew after meeting him that he was the perfect fit for us. He is very energetic and it's clear that he loves what he does.

On the day of the wedding, Paul exceeded our expectations. The photographs are everything we hoped they would be. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone getting married.

After looking around at photographers and videographers i didn't think i would get the two for under half of my over all budget. Then i came across AVR...they were running a special at one of the wedding expos i was at, and i was able to get both services for $2,000 total, an amazing deal considering many photographers offering the same packaged were well over 2,000 with JUST photography. Paul was great to work with and made us feel comfortable while giving us a verity of shots. And everything was delivered so quickly! i had the files in my hand fully released only a couple weeks after the wedding! Highly recommend Paul and his crew!!

Paul from AVR is a pleasure to work with and flexible to fit your needs. I rented a photobooth from him and his crew was on time and they provided awesome props! The photobook that was provided to us after the event was high quality and a cute reminder of the fun we and our guests had using the booth.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND :)

I was beyond impressed with Paul even my family and friends all said how great he was. He even kept checking the weather in his phone to make sure he knew what time he had to get my outside photos just right. He fit right in with my family and friends. He took so many pictures that I couldn't have even imagined to be taken. I didn't get to hang out with everyone and see how they enjoyed the wedding but the pictures say it all!!! I got to see all the smiles on everyone's faces and see how much fun they were all having. I have nothing but great things to say about AVR photography. I HIGHLY reccomend him!!
Thanks again Paul!

We were very pleased with Paul and his professionalism. He made everyone feel comfortable as he traveled around the rooms taking our photos. He was able to capture a lot with his camera and was willing to take some shots as we requested them. He was very easy to work with and responded back to us whenever we had a question or had to make a decision about the photographs. He was very pleasant to work with and outlined what he would be doing at the event so we knew what to expect from the beginning. A perfect gentleman to work with.

I had met AVR at a wedding expo, and decided to go with them after talking to the gentlemen there. They had a great price, and I would have chosen them for photography as well, but had already put a deposit down on someone else. Like any other bride the closer it got to my wedding the more nervous I was, having heard horror stories about other vendors. However I have to say that I am beyond pleased with the professionalism and end result of working with AVR. Paul Aronian is pleasant, enthusiastic and empathetic to what a bride is going through. The staff who worked my wedding was professional, and many people commented on how they did not even know the videographer was there. My wedding video is perfect, it has every important event, and every angle possible. I am incredibly grateful to AVR for permanetly documenting our wedding day with such perfect execution.

I loved my pictures and they came out beautiful!! We were all so nervous, but when the photographer showed up, (his name was Marian) he worked with us and made us all feel at ease. He got a lot of great shots which he took indoors and outdoors.

He was very professional in his work and had such a great attitude during our hectic evening. He captured all the images that I could have ever possibly wanted for my wedding. He shot my wedding with a variety of photographic styles, which pleased me, my parents and our families. It took me a long time to decide which pictures that I wanted for my album.

I would definitely recommend him again from the studio to all my friends that are getting married.

For our wedding last year in 2010, my husband and I were in the search of a great photographer who was able to put his or herself in our situation, meanings, seeing us as human and not digits or money.. We wanted someone who was significantly improved with the latest technology, flexible and affordable. I understand that these factors are the basic tools for all photographers; however, the owner of AVR Photography (Paul) is exceptional. Anyone can take pictures, but it takes a real and experienced professional like Paul to put in perspective the formal courses of photographic and apply the fundamentals and mandatory knowledge in busy atmosphere like wedding day.
He is a very caring and compassionate individual who is disposed to go above and beyond just to make his customers happy. He will make you feel comfortable by throwing some appropriate jokes just to get the best smile out while taking the pictures. He will be on your team, he is the best. He always returns all phone calls promptly, and I still keep in touch with him. There was absolutely not a moment that I felt like we were doing business, he made my day so special by putting his whole self in the effort. Most importantly, he was way too early vs. being late. Paul has done an outstanding, remarkable work on our most important day; pictures were nice, clear and pleasant, video was not shacking, the image structure was awesome! And every important moment from my hotel suite to the end of the night was captured with beautiful and loving songs. Paul created a website for us, which allowed us to share our wedding picture with family members who were not able to attend. He also gave me a CD with copyright that contains all the pictures. He does work with another photographer and they both made us feel like a celebrity that day. Any bride who wants to be treated like a Very Important Person, Queen or Princess, AVR photography will definitely make that dream come true.
Paul, I really want you to know that you were also a Very Important Person in my wedding. It has been over a year since the event, and what I have left now to share with new friends is your hard work as memory. Your professionalism is a legacy, thank you!

Judith.

Paul is a very versatile professional photographer. If you are planning a small or big wedding, if you are young or old, Paul has the ability to deliver the photographs and/or video you want. Paul works with an enormous amount of energy, yet has the ability to blend into your wedding and keeps the focus on all those important photographs you need/want (maybe even some you don't think you will want but turn out to be some of the best). Paul has been in the business so long that he has a list of every essential photograph in his head, which combined with your own list of requested shots, provides the blueprint for great photograghs on your big day!

Paul did a incredible job at our wedding. We are very pleased with the quality of the photographs. We communicated frequently with Paul prior to our wedding and it really paid off as Paul was attentive to every detail. We never saw Paul take a break, but he must have. In addition, many of our guests commented on how fun Paul was in doing his job. He jovially engaged our guests in an effort to get the best possible shots. We found the wedding packages offered by AVR to be a tremendous value (the best bang for your buck).

Paul and his team were amazing. There were punctual and the quality of work for both video and photography were superb. The prices they /offered are very great as well. Plus the final products such as the wedding video and wedding album were all of the highest qualites. Our wedding was on 12/18 so by the time the ceremony was over, it was already dark outside. Nonetheless, the pictures and vidoes taken outside were of high qualities and very clear.I will definitely use Paul and AVR for future events.

The main thing I appreciated with Paul is that he listens and willing to make appropriate amendments so that we were satisfied. Excellent! Excellent!

Paul, thanks for making the wedding a wondeful day. We actually just watched the wedding video and we are still in love with it.

I have looked around and he is seriously the best value we found for a quality job. The new digital albums are fantastic too. I also got video through him and that is great as well. I can't reccomend him enough!

One of the best decisions I made for my wedding. Our friends used them for their wedding in 2012 so they came highly recommended. You really can't beat AVR's pricing when most other photographers charge between $2k-$5k! Everything we wanted was captured (nearly 1200 photos!) and they provided us with the digital prints so we can do whatever we want with the photos. They also offered great pricing for quality albums that we may take advantage of after we narrow down the top photos from the day.
Our wedding was in Boston and we really wanted the group photos to be taken in the public gardens. Marion was our photographer and he was totally flexible with our requests. To make things easier he actually rode on our limo bus with us as it's difficult to deal with parking and transportation for city photos. It actually worked out because he was able to capture all the fun and celebrations pre and post wedding with the entire bridal party.
If you're not looking for the super artsy, photo-journalism type photos and just want to be sure all the important moments in your day are captured, I definitely recommend checking out AVR Photography.

AVR Photography provided our photos and video for our wedding in August. They were very reliable, trustworthy, professional, and flexible! It ended up pouring rain on our big day, so we had to think quick about where we could take pictures, and they were great! The pictures came out amazing inside, and out! (The rain ended up stopping and AVR got some great sunset pictures on the golf course for us.) I had my poofs within a week, and was able to create my wedding album online the way I wanted it and then sent it to print. The album came out beautiful and will be a keepsake to treasure forever. Coming from someone whose wedding was DIY, I didn't want to spend a ton of money on photography and videography, and I am so glad I found AVR! Great prices for some amazing quality photos! Would highly recommend.

AVR-Photography STRONGLY disagrees with this review...

Kate & Jonathans wedding was spectacular...The Photography shoot was A+... AVR arrived at 4:30pm at the Kirkbrae CC to do preliminary formals prior to the Ceremony...The arrival time was suggested by the BRIDE & GROOM......The BRIDE & GROOM Finally showed up at 5PM...That gave me 20 Minutes to pull off WEDDING Party Formals....The shoot came out Spectacular Considering the Time restraints....Coverage went to 12 Mid night....a total of 975 Pictures were Posted....All Spectacular.... ......Kate & Jonathan have received the Picture Files on DVD ( Released )

The Video coverage was from 4:30pm to 12 Mid night....At 11:55pm Kate & Jonathan were introduced for the Last Dance..At that time we inserting tape 4 in to Video Camera...Latter during editing we notice TAPE 4 was defective causing the footage to be scrambled at multiple points in the 4mins of coverage of last dance.....For proof I mailed a copy of the Tape 4 footage (Total of 4 Minutes ) to Kate and Jonathan for Proof....AVR went above an beyond to created a Special Slow Motion montage of the Wedding day and includind a scene of their last dance to end the video...The Ending montage came out great..... ....It was so great it will be used as a DEMO......We have posted the Video
our Website.... We also offered an UPGRADE from 45 pictures to 70 pictures of their Wedding Album in consolation for the Final Dance......... Kate & Jonathan still owe me $200 Dollars They have not received an album as of today 1-2-2011

Kate received 1hr DVD of Ceremony ....1hr .30 Min Video of Reception.... Above is Condense version

Spend a little more and get a decent video.
First, Mike was supposed to come as our videographer, but he sent someone else without telling us to go to a sporting event.
Second, he stood in the middle of the aisle literally right in front of the priest and groom. This blocked the photographer from being able to get the one big picture that i wanted from the ceremony- my groom's reaction to seeing me walk down the aisle.
Third, when we were back at the reception venue, he followed my parents around, never asked anyone where we were. Somehow all our guests saw us on the drive in and he missed us- BUT in the final video there is a quick shot of us walking outside at the start of us taking pictures so obviously he knew where we were. He did get some of the guests at cocktail hour, but we had a full hour of pictures between the end of the ceremony and the beginning of the cocktail hour that he could have used to get us. There's no video of the wedding party during our cocktail hour. What did he do with all that paid time?
Lastly, the final product- we paid for blue-ray. Got a regular dvd and no refund for difference. He told us there were a lot of complaints from ppl without blue-ray players who couldn't play them. We told him that wouldn't be a problem. Still sent us a regular dvd.
The DVD we did get looked like a random person with a recorder and a tripod took it. When people were walking down the aisle, he stood in the aisle so close to them to the point where the heads took up the whole screen. He missed the intro of my parents at the reception and the acknowledgement of grandparents. The editing was terrible- like a newbie playing around did it.
They spelled the name of our church wrong in the intro of the video. And used random pics on the dvd cover- pretty simple to take a still from the video if you were going to put a pic on it anyway. My father-in-law made a better video by doing a slideshow of the pics he took.
Very disappointed.

AVR Photography responded with the following comments:

1.0 Sorry about Blu-Ray.. Your blu ray is on its way ...You will love the quality! This was a misunderstanding ..Most brides wanted Digital DVD because they don't have a blu ray player
2.0 Spelling corrected ...It happens sometimes and always corrected ASAP and new copies sent out the following day.
3.0 About blocking Photographer from capturing shot of Grooms face during bridal procession.. Our Videographer stood at same spot...Which is brides family side close to pews to assure photographer has a clear shot at Grooms face .... That is our protocol over the years .. When bride walks by Videographer, he then pans to get grooms face ..
4.0 Your Footage of getting into Camry after ceremony has been included......You traveled to 3 locations for formal photography sessions ...It would be redundant to show you getting into a Camry 3 times.
5.0 About Heads becoming large during procession .....Heads will become large when Bridal Party gets close to Video lens.
6.0 Happy to say Grandparents are now in Video ...That is always a tough scene to capture, because they are already seated when introduced by DJ and they briefly stand and wave ...
7.0 Happy to say your parents names being announced are now in Video...Sometimes the names of the first couple being introduced are truncated from the Audio Fade Effects...
8.0 About Your Assigned Videographer "Charlie" ...Charlie is very experience , Charlie has worked 25 years exclusively for AVR .. He is always very polite and above and beyond...
9.0 About editing process.. Editing was performed on High End Turn Key Editing System.....Close to 100 Effects..... Slow motion Scene ...Brides personal songs inserted and multiple titles all edited into your final video product.

Thanks Paul
