I can not give Luva and his wife enough kudos for the job they did. They were just wonderful photographers. If they was a problem that didn't have anything to do with photography they were more than willing to pitch in. He also worked much longer than he was paid for and he was already cheap to begin with. On top of that my inlaws are not accustomed to the style of american picture taking at weddings and lova was very patient with them. ( I probably wouldn't have been) He is such an easy guy to pose for and he really listens to the type of pictures you want. I havent even seen the photos yet but I am positive they will be magnificent. To sum it all up I dont think I could have asked for more from them thank you soooo much guys!!!!

When we first met Lou we really liked him. He photographed my best friends wedding, and he had a great personality. We sat down with him and chose his most expensive package which was $1400.00 more than the one my best friend chose. her package came with the pictures being taken and a disk of the picture, mine came with the same, plus 3 parent albums and a coffee table book for us. He did take the pictures and after 5 months we got the picture disk. In 2 weeks it will be our 1 year anniversary. We have never recieved our albums, or a partial refund. 3 months ago he stopped all communication, so he won't even answer us as to why we have not gotten the service we paid for.
I even begged him to just finish just 1 parent album since my mother-in-law was terminally ill. He said he would and that was the last time he ever spoke to us. Beware of this vender, he will be your best friend untill you pay him, and not follow through on the job.

Lou is amazing! He is talented and has the ability to capture the perfect pctures. He took pictures of what I could not see and love seeing people enjoying the whole wedding. We love all of the candid shots which there were a lot, but we also loved how he posed us in different and unusual settings. Everything was perfect!

Lou and his wife were such a great team. I still am hearing from our family members what great pictures we had from our wedding and requesting copies for themselves. We didn't know that we could have gotten such great photography at such a reasonable cost. They went out of their way to fit our needs and made sure that we were happy. I already asked if Lou would photograph my maternity when it comes time :)

Very nice man! I found him when my budget was tight and he was very willing to help. He showed up early and stayed late which was one less thing I had to worry about. Everyone at the wedding was very impressed with how well he did. haha on more then one occassion people have commented to me about how everytime they turned around he was there. When everyone says he was everywhere at once you know he isn't missing anything. I have to admit that I was a bit of a bridezilla but he was very patient and met with us well before hand to figure out exactly what we wanted. He used many different focuses and angles as well as got close up of decorations and flowers. My husband and I were very happy with him. I am a huge crafter and anyone that scrapbooks knows how important good pictures are, the ones he gave us I am proud to show off and share. I am a very picky person and I expect quality which you will get with him. Our memories are all we have when the day is done and photos help to save those for future generations.

Don't mistake having a perfect 5.0 as someone just creating their own review. My name is Jason and my wife Liz and I had the pleasure of working with Lou. Not only did he recommend to us the South Mountain Big Ramada to get married at, he was outstanding in his photography. He was like a ninja dressed in black running and gunning everywhere. He was funny, patient and professional. He gave us way more time then we paid for and we could not believe that he was a fraction of the cost of other photographers. We thought, well there must be a catch so we were anxious to see how the pictures would turn out.
We just recently got the pics back and man, oh man are they amazing. Enough to make everyone shed a tear! Thank you soooo much Lou for taking the job serious and on short notice at that. We loved working with you and on the pictures we have look awesome in frames. (If you are still reading this review you can see our pics if you ask Lou!) We recommend Lou of Capre Diem Images to anyone that wants beautiful photography that does not break the bank! HIGH Five Lou!

Carpe Diem went out of their way to help with the success of our wedding. They're not afraid to get down in the dirt (literally!) to get the perfect shot. Our photographer spent time getting to know us and really managed to capture our style when he put together our collection of pictures. Not only were the pictures beautiful, they truly express the fun nature of the day. Both my husband and I would highly recommend Lou and his team for any event!!!

we were very pleased with the photos ... luva went above and beyond anything we could have ever expected from a wedding photographer! it's the best of both the posed and spontaneous moments. since there's no way we could possibly see everything that was going on it was nice to have our entire wedding from ceremony, to reception, to just hanging out documented for us in beautiful pictures!!!
