Blair Gable is truly an exceptional photographer. His talent is completely unique and unsurpassable. He captured the most amazing, intimate moments of our special day, and guided us every step of the way. His flair for details is thoroughly impressive. I would recommend him to anybody who is looking for something original and different. If you look through his blog, you will be hard pressed to find two pictures that look the same. Every wedding, every session he shoots is exclusive, it is one of a kind. Needless to say, he is worth every penny!

First of all, Blair is a brilliant photographer. His work exudes professionalism, creativity and a wealth of experience. The pictures he took of our wedding captured each intimate moment that occurred throughout the day. They were candid, natural and represented us as a couple. As well, Blair was extremely helpful in the planning process. He has many contacts and suggestions that help to make your wedding spectacular and his experience with other couples helps guide you in a direction to allow you to personalize your wedding. He is flexible and can work around any problem that arises and at the same time keep you relaxed and focused on enjoying your day. He was able to take our family shots with precision and efficiency that allowed us plenty of time to greet and interact with our guests. We, along with our family and friends, will be admiring our photos for years to come.

Our review is plain and simple. Blair is awesome. With over 160 guests at our wedding, not to mention the entire facebook community who saw our photos, the resounding response was; "your photographer was amazing!!". And we agree. He's professional, fun and rolls with the idiosyncrasies that each wedding couple inevitably brings come wedding day. His photos capture moments of real emotion and will ensure that the feelings you had on your wedding day are remembered forever.
Thanks Blair!

When we began our wedding process, we decided that photography would be an area we did not want to skimp on. We didn’t just want to find a photographer who could take nice photos, we wanted to find the perfect photojournalist who could tell a story about our wedding day in pictures. We met with a bunch of photographers but Blair took the cake with his excellent portfolio, down to earth attitude and professionalism. We were impressed of his work during the off wedding season as a freelance photographer for major new agencies and knew that his experiences would give us the edge we were looking for in our photos.

Fast forward to the month leading up to our wedding, Blair presented us with a killer concept for an engagement shoot. It was such an neat idea to have us dressed to the nines to do an engagement shoot at an abandoned flea market - we just couldn't say no. The pictures turned out amazing and we were quite excited for Blair to shoot our wedding day pictures. On the wedding day, Blair was calm, yet but had everything under control. We gave him extra props for handling intense family photo moments, and his effortless ability to blend into the crowd and yet capture all the right moments.

Choosing a wedding photographer can be a dicey task, as each one has a personalized style and technique, but when it came to selecting Blair Gable as ours, it was the easiest task to cross off our wedding list!
After witnessing his work at a good friend's wedding 2 years prior, it was easy to feel confident in entrusting him with our photo memories as well. Justin and I met with Blair a year before our wedding, and immediately knew that this was our guy and couldn't have been more comfortable and excited about working with him.
In the days leading up to the wedding, Blair was very organized and assertive, as well as very attentive to what we wanted from our photos; his work was important to him, and our photos were important to us!
As a photo journalist, he stylistically is set a part from your average wedding photographer, and told a story through our photos through candid, imtimate, and spontaneous shots. Our wedding day came and we were very excited to have Blair capturing all the memories and moments- he fit right in with family and friends and was more than just a photographer!
I would highly recommend Blair (and have eagerly done so!) to any bride and groom as he is a truly unique, talented and special photographer. We received all of our pictures in a short time after the wedding and were blown away. We can't decide on a few to print- we want to print them all! Blair, thank you for making our wedding day that much more special and allowing us to fondly look at the story of our day unfold so beautifully.

Just a quick glance at Blair’s portfolio and you’ll know what a kick-ass photographer he is. He’s committed to his style and vision of what wedding photography should be and it was exactly what we were looking for… but that wasn’t even the best part about working with Blair. It was that he took the time to understand the kind of couple we are, the wedding we were going to have, and the pictures we wanted. He scouted the location ahead of time and was prepared and professional the entire day. During the ceremony, reception, and dinner, Blair was a like a ninja. You didn’t see him or hear him, but he was everywhere, snapping incredible shot after incredible shot. It relaxed us and our guests not having a camera in our faces and he gave us those candid moments we wanted so desperately to capture. After the wedding, Blair was quick on the turnaround and we are absolutely thrilled with our pictures (as are all of our friends and family). He's a gifted photographer, great guy, and would hire him again in an instant.

Blair is absolutely fantastic! From the first day we met with him, we knew he was the perfect photographer for us. His laid back attitude combined with his professionalism and unique approach to capturing the story of the wedding couple put us at ease right away and really impressed us. His efficiency during the obligatory family shots was like nothing I’ve ever seen…it was really quite remarkable and much appreciated (after all, we wanted to get back to the party!). Many of our guests have commented on his style of photography, saying that our wedding photos are the best they’ve ever seen. We couldn’t agree more! Blair came highly recommended to us and we wouldn’t hesitate to pass on the same recommendation. Thank you Blair for such a wonderful experience.

Simply stated, Blair is awesome. We were impressed with his professionalism throughout and thrilled with the end result. We can unnabashedly recommend him.

Having photos that fit the style and feel of our wedding was a priority for us. Blair seemed to understand what we wanted even when we weren't sure how to express it. He kept us focused and on track in the lead up to our day and made it feel easy.

Most importantly (and if you've visited his site you'll no doubt already know this) he has a distinctive style, likely a product of being a working photojournalist and not a portrait photog.) It was exactly what we had envisioned when we set out to find someone to shoot our wedding and he still managed to surpass expectations with the final product.

How's that for an endorsement? If you can get him, I honestly don't think you'll be disappointed.
