Congratulations! A wedding is one of the most significant and emotional rituals that any two people can choose to undertake. Wedding Photographers are a dime a dozen. The photographer you chose to capture your special day needs to provide you with images that you will Cherish for a lifetime. Emotions,feelings and details are what makes a photograph come to life. Being able to find and capture the moment is what I incorporate in every shot. My goal is to create beautiful images that capture all the joy & magic of the day so you can re-live your special day & share with love ones. Again, Congratulations to you and yours to be. If you have any questions please feel free to call or e/mail and I would be honored to help with all your Creative Photography needs. Read less

we haven't had a wedding yet, but he had taken pictures of daughter 3 years old and back when she was 2 (whose not easy to work with, and I'm telling you not easy) and he is the most patient friendly honest, fun.... photographer I have used. He was referred to me through a cousin!! and her pictures are GORGEOUS!! wedding, birthdays, baby birthday.....Truly recommend him for any photos you need, your money is well worth with the service he offers. I saw my pictures a soon as the same night of the day they were taken. no complains at all from him or his service!!

Def the best and best value!!

We had the pleasure of getting to know Curtis thru a couple of friends weddings over the years. When it came down to picking a photographer it was an easy choice. Curtis did both our engagement shoot and wedding and they both turned out great. Curtis from the start was very professional and honest about the way he works. He detailed how the different packages worked and what you get with them, all laid out so it was easy to chose from. As far as the shoots went, Curtis had a plan and a vision at all times. For our engagement shoot he knew exactly where to go at the right times to get the perfect lighting (it was an outdoor shoot). He brought the pictures to life thru color, angles and specific locations. For the wedding, which was also outdoors, he did an amazing job. He was able to shoot the ceremony getting everyone's emotions. The pictures came out fantastic. The way he is able to get different angles, work with the natural lighting as well as the indoor lighting is second to none. He is also FANTASTIC in getting your guests involved and motivated which is a testament to his personality. If you want a photographer that is just going to point and shoot- Curtis isn't for you. If you want a photographer that is upbeat, energetic, a little nutty and funny- you need to go with Curtis. We honestly called him the photo ninja- we don't know how (or when) he took some of the shots he did. Two months after the wedding our guests are still commenting how great he was. Curtis will deliver on the pictures and guaranteed you will be happy with the results. We would absolutely work with Curtis again on any future photo shoots!

DO NOT hire him! He is the worst photographer you could pick! My photos were horrible, nothing at all like what he shows you. He will promise you the moon and give you feces in return. The only decent photos I have from my wedding are of my decor and those still aren't that great. Most of our portraits are blurry or taken in a weird way that makes us look awkwardly short. We had paid for a Next Day shoot that we do not want to do now, the quality of the photos is so bad we don't have one useable photo for framing, he refused to refund us our money for the next day shoot and instead, had an attorney send a letter stating that his work was up to professional standards and we can either do the shoot or forfeit our money. He's also a bit on the pricey side. We thought "hey you get what you pay for, let's not skimp on photography." BIG MISTAKE! He missed our first kiss!!!!!

He was also extremely rude to my bridal party, guests, and the people that worked at the venue. He had a bad attitude and didn't do what he promised on his contract. I paid for 2 people but only got one, 8 hours of shooting and he was only there for 5, missing us getting ready AND our exit. He is really bad with time management, which we learned at our engagement shoot, which had 4 decent photos for like 6 hours, only one was a shot we requested. He promises a lot and never delivers. You will end up with better photos from your drunk relatives, we did. Such a sad waste of money.

Curtis Smith Photography responded with the following comments:

It has come to my attention that this bride has done nothing but slander most of her vendors. But all her allegations are false and I feel safe in saying I have 100% of the truth on my sideI have pictures of the first kiss a long with other pictures of her wedding.I also have proof by the time stamp of the last picture shot that I was one hour over my contracted time. I have proof on the time I started as well. I was blamed for being late and leaving early none of this is true. It funny how she forgets to state that SHE was 45 min late getting to the venue and the groom was over an hour late as well, which put everything behind schedule . She also doesn't include the fact that she had her rehearsal for her ceremony 15 min before her actually ceremony took place.The complete wedding was in a night club, which the client was advised that the quality of the images would reflect the quality of the lighting. I showed up early to work with the (DJ) so that the lights could be corrected as to get the most out of night club lights. I had worked with the wedding planner to get the best lighting posable. What she received was a wedding shot in a night club.She also forgets to add that after she hired me she signed up to be in a TV reality show"TLC's 4 weddings". My images and past weddings are a testament of who and what Im about. 85% of my work comes from referrals why would I do a client this way. Im not sorry for anything I did for this wedding as I know I did what I was hired to do. I have also had a lawyer look over this as to her wanting a refund. After the lawyers reviewed the images and the evidence of what I produced and with all the hatful swearing e/ms from this client they saw no reason for a refund and this is why she has taken to social media for slander. I have proof of everything and more as I could go on and on but no need Pictures are worth a 1000 words! Click the slide show http://video214.com/play/qH0OkIkizcD0yJTox2TCmg/s/dark

Curtis is a very talented and fun photographer. He captured our wedding in ways we couldn't have anticipated. Our friends and family loved having their pictures taken. We chose to do our photo booth with him also, and it was a huge hit. The day after our wedding he sent us a sneak peek that made me cry. Thats how moving his photos are. You are paying for a work of art, this is his passion and his art. His ideas are cutting edge and out of the box, which is what I love. He captures the moments that happening naturally. So when you see the pictures you can feel the emotion that was going on at that exact moment. The best part is he is fun to work with. I needed someone who would be artistically directive as well as funny behind the lens. You wont be disappointed having Curtis capture your day.

We booked Curtis (photographer) along with Rudy (videographer). Their work is amazing, I've seen a sneak preview of some of the photos from our engagement and wedding and I can't wait to see the rest. Curtis is a true artist, though his methods may seem unorthodox at times, the results are astounding! Curtis and Rudy were sure to capture every moment throughout the ceremony and reception, literally EVERY MOMENT! The end result is more like valuable art rather than just a photo album or home video. We are truly thankful and very happy! We'll definitely recommend them.

I discovered Curtis through his website shortly after getting engaged and was adament about him shooting my wedding. Of course, I got my way and it's made all the difference. Since my own wedding, Curtis has shot weddings of my closest family and friends. He did such an amazing job on my wedding that it was even showcased in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine with a two page spread AND in Atlanta Weddings Magazine. He's INCREDIBLY talented and truly the best of the best. I always tell my friends - you get what you pay for - and it's so true Curtis. He's also a true professional, but not stiff at all - that's why my family and friends all love him. He mingled with the guests, in fact, he was quite famous (in a good way) at my wedding for his personality.
