My wife and I came across Bryan Avigne's work while searching for a photographer on WeddingWire for our engagement shoot. We were able to schedule our preliminary meeting with ease, and the rest is history. Bryan is the epitome of patient, flexible, professional, dependable, and compassionate. His finished product is absolutely amazing, and we continue to receive compliments from our family and friends. We can't wait to have Bryan photograph our future together, he's certainly "captured" our loyalty to him!

Bryan was absolutely wonderful to work with! We had met him and his lovely wife, Christina, at my friend's wedding a few years back. The photos from her wedding were absolutely breathtaking, and I just knew I wanted him to capture our day. Our engagement photos are absolutely wonderful, and we received them in a very reasonable time frame after they were shot. Bryan was very flexible with us to build the right photography package for what we were looking for! On the day of the wedding, he was absolutely wonderful. We told him how we wanted the general flow to be and where we had to be at certain times, and he ran with it from there! The whole morning was SO relaxed under his direction, it really just allowed us to soak in every moment rather than directing everyone. He and Christina are a FABULOUS team! She was so conscious of making sure my dress train was always in the right place and that everything else was perfect. Towards the end of the night, Bryan even reminded me of some "must take" photos I said I wanted but we hadn't gotten a chance to take earlier. I loved that he really listened to that and kept me on point. So many of our guests also told me how nice Bryan and Christina were, which was great to hear! I would absolutely recommend Bryan to anyone!!

Bryan was the first vendor that I wanted to review, because we want everyone to have the wonderful experience we did! Bryan was absolutely wonderful, from the day we contacted him to even after the wedding, he is very prompt in replying to our questions and requests. He was very professional, yet made us feel very comfortable, as if we had known him years! We absolutely loved working with him! I can’t say enough about him and his work, and if you haven’t already, take a look at his amazing website, that was the first thing that drew us to him, and it only got better from there! His portfolio is amazing, and having him there to capture our wedding made it so special! We are so lucky that Bryan was a part of our wedding, and he will certainly be the first photographer we contact for all the special moments in life!! Thank you Bryan!

Bryan was the best investment I made for our wedding! He and his wife welcomed us into their home (where his studio is) so that we could go over all the details and expectations my husband and I had. We opted to do the engagement shoot with his as well to be able to get a sense of each other's style. I knew he was worth every penny when he was laying in the snow in 15 degree weather to get the perfect winter photo! Beside his commitment to make you happy as the couple, he is honest with his opinions on your requests. On the day of the wedding, I gave his complete reign over what pictures and poses to do and his eye for background and setting were on point. Additionally, I had our wedding pictures back after one month! I will definitely use his services in the future!

Bryan was outstanding from day 1 of meeting with him! He was very professional and able to give us advice on all of our needs. We had a save the date photo shoot before having the wedding and were blown away by the photos even with the tough cold wintery conditions. He helped us with printing the save the dates as well as thank you cards. He did a phenomenal job during our wedding event and surprised us with how quickly he got the photos back to us. We couldn't be happier! We will definitely be in touch for future photo shoots. Thanks Bryan!

My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Bryan! He is not only an extremely talented photographer, he's wonderful to work with - he has an energy that is contagious, he's passionate, genuine and takes so much pride in his work. After meeting Bryan for the first time we were extremely impressed by his portfolio, the quality of his work and overall professionalism. We had our engagement shoot in 3 feet of snow and a late summer wedding without a cloud in the sky and whether rain, snow or shine, Bryan made the best of it and the pictures are just breathtaking!

We are so thankful and couldn't be happier with our decision in hiring Bryan! He captures the moment, whats real, the love, emotion and true happiness of the moment - nothing staged - he's creative and offers a wide variety of photos to chose from with different lighting, expressions, poses, scenery and style. We very much look forward to continue our relationship/working with Bryan as the years go by and we reach our future 'photograph-worthy' milestones!

We were so happy we chose Bryan for our wedding. Our wedding photos will help us look back on our special day for years to come, so we knew this was an area that we didn't want to skimp on. We chose Bryan because he had done such a great job at our friend's wedding and gave them beautiful photos. He did not let us down! His photos are absolutely beautiful. He takes the time to stage the photos with you and your spouse and with the bridal party so that the background is perfect, lighting is right, and everyone looks good. We were so amazed at how he managed to make the red dresses of my bridesmaids pop out in the pictures. He gave us 100s of pictures of our wedding day - we now have the difficult task of narrowing them down for the ones we want to put in our album.

Final note, there are many "photographers" out there who claim to be wedding photographers but their photos are terrible (washed out, bad angles, miss key moments). They might be lower in price than Bryan but you get what you pay for.

Bryan's work truly speaks for itself. He is an AMAZINGLY talented artist. He is able to capture in time the most special moments that you can share with your loved ones forever. Bryan is so professional, calm, cool and collected and knows exactly what he is looking for and is able to make you feel comfortable and at ease the whole entire time. You literally feel like you have known him your whole life! He goes with the flow and honestly felt like family. Many reviewers are exactly right, he responds quickly to questions and emails: he is very helpful when it comes to suggesting other vendors that he has worked with in the past. He is SO knowledgable and an overall awesome human being. It was a pleasure working with him and I would highly recommend his talents to anyone! Thank you, Bryan :)

Best wedding decision we made!!!! From the first moment we saw Bryan's website and the originality and creativity of his pictures we knew he had to be our wedding photographer! And from the first time we met Bryan and his wife Christina the decision was made. He was so personal and down to earth yet very professional. They made us feel so special that day and it was so nice to not worry about if we will have nice wedding pictures or what kind of shots should we do because Bryan and Christina figured that all out for us. You will not regret your decision to choose Bryan Avigne Photography as we did not. Looking at our wedding pictures after the big day we were amazed at some of the cool shots he got because we didn't even notice him taking them. Many of our guests commented that our photographer was everywhere yet he was not intrusive. So true! He truly has a knack for taking pictures and we are planning to use Bryan Avigne photography again when we have a baby for some adorable baby shots that he also does.. As I said best wedding decision we made and it will be the best decision you also make. Don't miss out!! Thanks Bryan and Christina for making our wedding day one of the best days of both of our lives!

Like most couples we did quite a bit of hunting around for a photographer, and what we found was a big difference in price, but also that there was a big difference in quality that went along with the price. For the $2000ish price range we found a few places that would take the photos, and the quality of the images look good, but it was basically no different than if I had a nice camera and took the pictures myself. We came across two photographers that had captured images on their websites that really stood out from the rest. One was from NYC and was $5K+, and Bryan was less than $5K, and for what we wanted to do (for our time and venue locations) was worth every penny. What pulled us into Bryan's photo's was a sense of craftsmanship, and it felt like there was an art to the way he brought the optics of the camera, the scenery and people and objects within it, and the human moment together in a way that made the subjects pop out and connected us to what was happening right then and there. We really like the way he uses depth of field to have very specific parts of the image sharp and in focus, and then allow objects closer and farther away to be blurred. For example, we had our reception at the Lakeview Restaurant in Coventry, and there was a bit of clutter in one of the properties in the background of our shots on the dock, but when the photos came out, all we saw was the best part of the scene. We also did an engagement session with Bryan at Hammonasset beach, and he was able to use the environment and fading sunlight to capture shots that came out really well, and once we saw those pictures, we had no doubt that our wedding pics were going to turn out just as good. During our ceremony and reception Bryan was everywhere, but was able to maneuver his way around the families and guests without disrupting the moment or the experience for anyone else. We highly recommend meeting with him, and have already used him for a second family reception.
