Joel Flory, THANK YOU!

It was such an incredibly experience working with you and your assistant on the day of our wedding- Sept 30, 2011 at the Thomas Fogarty Winery. We are happy with all of the shots you were able to get on our wedding day. The First Look was such a beautiful moment that Aaron and I shared, then to go on a hike in the nature before our Ceremony. I really am never going to be able to say to you what that meant to us, to go on an adventure on the day of our marriage to vow the love that we share. You captured our love and we will forever remember our special moments from our wedding day. Look forward to working with you again throughout our life for other special occasions.
Appreciate everything!
Best,
PK + AK

Joel and his team of photographers beautifully captured our wedding day. He is super easy to work with and very professional. We enjoyed his photos and his company alike ;). We had a very short time to take all of the family shots at the church site and Joel was like a machine - he had a list that he had requested of me and got everyone up and in the shot and moved right along. You treasure these photos because they are capturing a time that flies by - seriously, the day goes by and before you know it, you are done and you can't believe it's over! Joel recognizes the importance & sentimentality of each of those moments throughout the day and brings it all back to life for you through his photos. He and his team were also super attentive to me as the bride and were very professional all the way through. They know what they are doing and they listen to what you want, get to know you and work to accommodate your requests/needs. I highly recommend Flory photo to capture such an important day and would love to use Flory for future events. Thanks Joel ;)!!!

Joel is amazing!! He and his wife just photographed my SF City Hall wedding, and they were fantastic. He also did our engagement session, and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the photos and the experience of working with Joel.
He went above and beyond making our wedding day go smoothly, and I want to recommend him to everyone I know who's getting married.

THE SHORT REVIEW:
I would recommend Joel Flory and his wife Cara as wedding photographers seven days a week and twice on Sunday! Oh my...I will do my best to explain what a great job they did here, but the proof is in the pudding and they certainly came through. We could not have been any happier with the professionalism and quality of their work. And now we have amazing photos that will last us a lifetime.

THE LONG REVIEW...for the brides-to-be :)
My wife and I got married in June 2008 but we were engaged for nearly nine months prior to the wedding. We started looking for a wedding photographer right away and we found Joel's website through one of my wife's coworkers. I looked through several of the galleries on the website and was instantly impressed. I think what caught my eye the most was how the photos captured the emotion of the brides and grooms and guests. It's one thing to take pictures of inanimate object like rings and shoes. It's a completely different challenge to take the feelings of each moment and save them in a photograph. Joel and Cara have a unique style about their photos and I wanted them to shoot our special day.

Somewhat uncommonly, we decided not to meet with Joel prior to the wedding. We talked with him on the phone several times however and put together a rough schedule for the wedding that included a block of time prior to the ceremony for photos. Our ceremony and reception took place on a yacht leaving the Sausalito harbor and Joel suggested we go up into the Marin Headlands for pre-ceremony photos. One would expect hundreds of pictures of the bride and groom with the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco in the distance. We got a couple quick photos with the Bridge and city behind us, but Joel also took us to some unique spots off the beaten path that turned out awesome in the pictures. Take a look through some of the sample galleries and you'll see instantly what I mean by unique. Joel has a great eye for what works and a definite passion for getting great shots. On top of that, he's got an enthusiastic, easy-going personality. Taking the photos was actually a lot of fun and we felt totally relaxed even with the cameras shooting off dozens pictures at a time.

At the ceremony, Joel and Cara got amazing shots of the family reactions from every conceivable angle. It's not everyday you get to see the moms completely broken down in tears of joy! And now we have priceless photos of these cherished moments. For those pictures alone, I'm forever grateful. The Florys treated the ceremony as if it were their very own and went above and beyond to make sure no emotion of the moment was lost.

Following the ceremony, we took family photos. Even improvising a location for the families to stand didn't slow Joel down one bit. We all stood out on the bow of the boat with the sun beginning to set just behind us. Joel snapped off hundreds of photos of every family group combination and they turned out beautifully. In fact, several times the family members got confused about who was taking photos with whom and Joel got us straightened out and posed after just 15 minutes of meeting everyone for the first time! Awesome.

Even while all that was going on, Cara setup a computer a monitor displaying some of the best shots from the pre-ceremony photo shoot up in the Marin Headlands! We had to practically herd people away from the screen so they would go sit down and eat dinner! Such a treat having the photos ready for the guests to preview right at the reception.

At the reception, Joel and Cara were everywhere anything worth photographing was happening. Kids, food, dancing, smiles, kisses, you name it...they got it all and even under some of the toughest lighting conditions. On top of that, Joel was beyond prepared knowing exactly what came next in the schedule, where each family member necessary for each event was, and how to "block" everything to make sure the pictures came out perfectly. On such a stressful day, we had an ally among the chaos! Joel fit in so well among the guests, many of them actually asked us if he was our friend and not our professional photographer!

I would book Joel Flory Photography again in a heartbeat. Our pictures turned out amazing and the day as perfect as it could be. My wife and I recommend them 100%...you won't be disappointed!

Joel Flory and Cara Flory were absolutely amazing...NO they were SUPERBLY AMAZING!!! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer...

My husband is a family/children's photographer and I took photography as a course for 4 years. So for us understanding the art of capturing light was very important in every aspect: composition, contrast of black and white, and richness of color; we're all something we critiqued very hard when it came to someone capturing our special day!!

It took us 18 months to find a photographer that would not only shoot the important moments within our wedding, but also capture the true personalities that my husband and I carry. The goofy moments that made us who we are and the passionate moments that made us husband and wife.

We were glad we found Joel and Cara, they were the best photographers to work with that day. They helped us with our timeline and made sure we were on top of things, but in a way that made the day smooth and memorable. Not only were they accommodating to my "crazy Filipino family", but they were so nice and all we saw were smiles from the both of them, which made us feel more and more comfortable with them.

During the reception, they hosted a slideshow which had photos taken from the ceremony and our "photo session" with the bridal party. Those pictures got nothing but compliments from everyone who seen them. People kept saying how amazing they were and how natural we looked in our photos.

I will always and forever refer everyone who is getting married to book with Joel Flory; they capture the most important moments as well as capture the personalities that makes husband and wife, who they are.

I highly recommend Joel and Cara for wedding photography! They are a fantastic pair, their pictures are GORGEOUS, they are professional, on top of everything, always got back to me with any request or question and gave valuable insight and made me feel taken care of throughout the whole process!

I am a wedding coordinator so I have seen many wonderful photographers but they were my first choice when choosing someone to take care of my own pictures - which was the most important vendor to me. Our wedding was in October and it absolutely poured that day!!! Not once did I worry about the pictures. They helped adjust picture spots, followed us in the rain, delt with shadows and bad lighting for the new, indoor ceremony site, etc and our pictures turned out absolutely amazingly!

They also show a slideshow of some pictures taken throughout the day at the reception and had the same slideshow online the next day! They gave us a disk of our proofs six weeks later which is so much quicker than most photographers!

I have only fantastic things to say about Joel and Cara Flory!!!
