We used Furla for Photo and Video. We worked with Bart, John, Chris and a couple of others. We are so happy we chose them for our wedding. We have already looked at our pictures, and they are truly beautiful. One picture is more stunning then the next. We haven't gotten our video yet, but we are very confident that it will be just amazing. The entire team that worked with us on our wedding day was fantastic. We had such a great time with them, and their work is unbelievable. We would highly recommend Furla Studios to any couple!

Bart and Jon were my photographers for my New Years Eve wedding and they did an excellent job! I can't wait to see how the pictures turned out. Jon was assigned to work with my husband and his groomsman, and he said they had a lot of fun taking pictures - which was good to hear since none of them love taking pictures :) Bart worked with me and the girls and he makes it so much fun! Throughout the night they stayed on top of things to make sure I got all the pictures I wanted - especially some outdoor ones that I had completely forgotten I wanted to take! They pay so much attention to detail and I can't wait to see how our pictures turn out! I have no regrets working with Furla - they were a pleasure to work with from the first day I walked into their office. And since I loved our engagement pictures I know I will love our wedding pictures too.

Kristen & Brad, thank you so much for your positive and kind words. We can't say enough about your willingness and cooperation throughout your day. It takes 2 to create great images and you and Brad were a pleasure to work with. The Metropolis Ballroom looked absolutely amazing. How lucky did we get to be able to get outdoor images on a Dec 31 wedding day!

Furla demonstrates exceptional customer service and quality photography and video. Visit there office and get to know their staff. They are all very much invested in their craft and enjoy serving their customers. My mother used Furla for her wedding day in '85, and I chose to use them less than thirty years later because they are are some of the best professionals in the business of photography. I love my wedding album. And I loved having the freedom to make decisions with Furla as part of the team. I can't wait to view the video!

We can't put into words how happy we are with Bart and John. We are forever grateful for the work they have done on our wedding day. They worked incredibly hard to capture so many wonderful moments and highlights of the day. They made a great team and kept the day running smoothly. They had amazing ideas for pictures, we are SO excited to see the shots. Our families loved them and kept commenting on how great they were as well. You don't come across many genuine people nowadays but these guys are fantastic. You can tell they have a passion for what they do and that this isn't just a job. Bart and John are quite an asset to Furla.

We worked with Peter Furla and had a second photographer, Stacy. We were very impressed with their work. Peter was creative and both of them took the time to take amazing pictures of our families. When it came time to work on our book, Peter was patient and kind. Anything I wanted to change, he was more than willing to do for me. He made sure everything was perfect and his staff was more than accommodating as well. Anytime I called or emailed, they responded right away. We had to reschedule our engagement shoot several times due to family illnesses or rescheduling and Peter was incredibly understanding. Peter was absolutely a pleasure to work with. My husband and his groomsmen worked with Stacy and they really enjoyed themselves. Our wedding album is absolutely amazing. Their quality is just amazing. If you work them for videography, make sure you request Chris. Again, he is such a pleasure to work with. He made our highlight reel exactly what we wanted.

Chris at Furla was my favorite vendor of the day. He went over the day with me and knew my plan in advance. He showed up early and was very friendly and helpful in coaching me in what to do in front of the camera. He was almost invisible until I needed him to do something and then he was ready. He was a really calming presence on a very busy day. He was OK with me saying "Let's do this later" and then he would wait and film other things while I was busy. He even caught moments I didn't think that he saw and I am greatful to have thm on tape. He even chose to stay after his contract time because we were all having so much fun on the dancefloor and he wanted a little more footage. He was so excited about some of the shots that he took, he showed us them immediately. We had a really good time working with Chris and didn't feel like we were taken away from our day to work with him. In fact it was fun to steal away and do a few cool shots and then go back to our party.

John & Bart were the most amazing photographers. They made sure every specific photo i wanted was taken. They took charge of my loud obnoxious 20 person bridal party. Chris and his crew were so very detail oriented, they found perfect scenarios to video. Once I get the video and photos back, i will write another review. I would deff recommend Furla to a bride that loves photography and the art of photography. Furla will retell your wedding day with a story of photos & videos of course.

I've used Furla for my wedding and finally received my album which looks amazing. We had to adjust our budget to get them for photo and video but I don't regret it at all. Looking back at the whole thing you realize that they are the people you will be with the whole day and they will get you thru the good and the bad and they can make or brake your wedding day. Furla had definetly made my wedding day. Ladies, this is the service you shouldn't skimp on. Furla, thank you!

Print Deal
Redeem In-Store  
It's unreal that some photographers charge you to photograph your engagement portrait. We have always included it so you can be photographed by your photographer prior to your wedding day. If you mention you saw us on WeddingWire we will upgrade it to an on-location session on the beach, downtown or anywhere within 25 min of our studio, a $300 value... If you hire us for both Photography & Video full-day coverage we will also give you a complimentary video highlight recap of your wedding. Ask about our Destination wedding special... Let us show you the difference!!!
