David and I were so happy with our photographers! Joe and Mary lu took the time to get to know us and our style. The attention to detail, timing and light was amazing, they took the time to scope out both locations for our engagement and wedding photo's to make sure the timing would be perfect for certain pictures. They did a outstanding job with our wedding album, all we had to do was pick the pictures that went into the album and they did EVERYTHING else, it was great, beautiful color, organization and technique. We were married on 6/6/2010 and they had our album done beginning of October. very fast and efficient. I would recommend captured memories for any occasion/event!

Thank you so much!
