I can't say enough how extremely happy that my husband and I were with the photos that Alejo took at our recent wedding. Both of us sometimes do not photograph well, yet Alejo got numerous candid and posed shots that really looked fantastic. He made sure that he photographed every person who attended the wedding. He worked tirelessly during our event, and we were amazed about the many different perspectives that were shot without our even realizing it. Alejo is extremely creative and flexible but is also very professional and detail-oriented in his approach. I highly recommend Flutter for any of your photography needs--it is well worth the money.

Alejo and Theresa were the photographers for my wedding, and Alejo also did our engagement shoot. They are fantastic. They were extremely easy to work with, responsive, and overall great people. The engagement photos turned out wonderfully, and Alejo even took extra time to try to get a "family" shot of us with our cat. When it came time for the wedding, they were prompt and got right to work, setting up amazing shots without being disruptive. In fact, we barely knew that they were there. They put everyone at ease and somehow were able to get great group shots and shots of everyone important, even though we forgot to give them the list of "required" photos until the very last minute. Our wedding photos are better than I ever imagined they could be, and I highly recommend Alejo and Theresa. We are so glad that we selected them to be our wedding photographers.

It is hard to express in words how great our experience with Flutter photo was. From our engagement photo session till the last dance of our wedding Alejo and Theresa made us feel comfortable and gave us peace of mind knowing that our memories would be captured on film. Theresa and Alejo are not just great photographers but genuinely great people. They work well as a team and were able to handle every situation they encountered, including wrangling unruly groomsmen for photos. Flutter photo efficiently got all the needed formal shots out of the way quickly so we able to enjoy the party at our wedding. Most of all, with their photojournalistic style the pictures they captured convey the story of the day and allow us, as the bride and groom, to enjoy the wedding all over again from various different perspectives. Theresa and Alejo were visible when they needed to be and blended into the crowd when needed as well. As far as the quality of the pictures, words can’t express how happy we are with them. The photos are truly beautiful, creative and often breathtaking. We would definitely recommend Flutter Photo to anyone who was getting married in the future.

Theresa & Alejo are so much more than just our wedding photographers.....they've become part of our family!

After having photographed two of my close friends' weddings, flutterphoto was the first vendor that came to mind when planning my own wedding. I had first hand knowledge of their professionalism and the quality of their work. So, when I called to tell them of my engagement and to request their services for my Vegas wedding, they made sure they would be there to shoot and celebrate with us! Theresa & Alejo were very accommodating, making sure that every aspect of the wedding was captured.

The finished products were perfection! Each tear, giggle, and kiss are frozen in time thanks to them! Their work is phenomenal!

We are looking forward to sharing other family milestones with flutterphoto right there to capture it all!

After looking for literally several months for someone to shoot our wedding, which involved an outdoor ceremony with low angle afternoon sun, a 15 block long New Orleans Style parade through the streets of Old Town Alexandria, and an indoor cocktail reception, which means a wide variety of lighting conditions, I had all but given up after interviewing many photographers. But then I found flutterphoto online, and met Alejo and Theresa in person to discuss how they would tackle this sort of a shoot. I was extremely impressed with their technical skill, as evidenced by photos taken at other events, and was relieved that they were willing to work with a rather nontraditional flow of events at our wedding. I expected to receive technically high quality photos. I received a lot more than that.
The artistic composition of so many of the shots simply amaze me, and given that I shoot some photojournalism style shots myself for my work, it was humbling to know that no matter how much my own technical skill improves over time, my own photography will never approach Alejo's skill. He has an amazing eye.
It is also worth noting that on the day of the event I didn't have to do a single thing to direct or support Alejo. Having had to manage a number of photographers in my professional life, I can't explain how much of a relief it was to know that Alejo has everything under control.
Every aspect exceeded my expectations, and to be honest I'm pretty hard to please, and am fairly critical of every other photographer I've ever worked with.
I highly recommend Alejo and flutterphoto. And while he largely focuses on wedding events, I look forward to working with him and Theresa in the future to support business projects I need documented in the future. I believe he'd be outstanding at photojournalism or corporate photography as well, and look forward to an ongoing relationship with flutter photo.
Thanks Alejo for an amazing collection of wedding photos.

My husband and I had photography as a priority for our wedding, and Flutter Photo was wonderful, from the moment I sent my inquiry to receiving the photos of the wedding. Alejo and Theresa are both very relaxed, friendly and professional, eager to talk over any questions or ideas and really responsive to our needs, particularly since we planned our wedding from another state - having Alejo come to NY for our engagement pictures really meant a lot!

The wedding day photos with them were fun and easy. All our guests, family, wedding party, went wild for the photobooth and commented to us about how excited they were for pictures. Everyone had positive things to say about Alejo and Theresa - and I was so happy that they had a good time as well. The groomsmen photos with Theresa, and my bridesmaid/bride pictures with Alejo, the couple photos afterward, they all brought back memories and excitement, exactly what you want with your wedding photos.

The pictures themselves are fantastic - worth every penny. I have already spent hours looking over them, and the word from the guests is excellent. Having two photographers made a huge difference in coverage and getting some of the little moments we would never have seen otherwise. I feel really fortunate to have worked with them, and would do it again.

Alejo and Theresa are both very relaxed, friendly and professional, eager to talk over any questions or ideas and really responsive to our needs, particularly since we planned our wedding from another state - having Alejo come to NY for our engagement pictures really meant a lot!

The wedding day photos with them were fun and easy. All our guests, family, wedding party, went wild for the photobooth and commented to us about how excited they were for pictures. Everyone had positive things to say about Alejo and Theresa - and I was so happy that they had a good time as well. The groomsmen photos with Theresa, and my bridesmaid/bride pictures with Alejo, the couple photos afterward, they all brought back memories and excitement, exactly what you want with your wedding photos.

The pictures themselves are fantastic - worth every penny. I have already spent hours looking over them, and the word from the guests is excellent. Having two photographers made a huge difference in coverage and getting some of the little moments we would never have seen otherwise. I feel really fortunate to have worked with them, and would do it again. Read less

Flutter Photo did an amazing job covering our rehearsal dinner and wedding. Our photos were beautiful and everyone RAVED about them! Their website was great and allowed our guests to view and buy photos right away. They have a very laid back style which a relief since planning is so stressful. It's so refreshing working with a team that is so professional and yet so calming! We highly recommend Flutter Photo and hope to use them again in the future. Lisa & Lonnie Lazear

Theresa and Alejo are professional photographers who provide gorgeous photographs, but also understand that weddings are a celebration, and their work reflects this. Yes, they capture the tender moments, but they understood that our wedding was a celebration. They asked excellent questions about what we wanted the photographs to capture. They also were flexible on adjusting our package since we planned this wedding from afar, and did not need engagement photos. I could not recommend Flutterphoto highly enough. Oh - and get the photo booth option, it's well worth it.
