Finding a wedding photographer is such a daunting task -- I can't even tell you how many google searches I did before finding Ian's website. After clicking through several galleries of weddings in their entirety, I couldn't believe how beautiful ALL the photos were and that these TWO amazing photographers were in my price range (well, a tiny bit out of my ideal cheapskate price range -- , but TOTALLY worth the splurge).

Our wedding day came and went and was perfect in every way, so I've had some pretty high expectations for our pictures, but Jen posted pictures yesterday, and words truly can't describe how thrilled my husband and I are with them.

They are just perfect in every way -- the gallery is a delightful combination of artsy, edited shots and more natural, minimally edited photos. Having two photographers was key -- brides, DO NOT SKIMP AND GET ONE PHOTOGRAPHER -- because I love seeing some of the sweetest moments of the day from two different angles (plus I think the photos are technically better when someone else is there to help with lighting, etc). I was also seriously hoping that we would end up with photographers who knew how to pose us, because when left to our own devices my husband and I just throw an arm around each other and stand there with goofy grins. Jen is a master at it though -- she even came up to us at one point and gave us a little lesson in what a proper dip should look like.

The cherry on top is that Jen and Ian are funny, laid back, perfectly in sync with each other and fun to work with. To be honest, I wouldn't have cared all that much if our photographers were total jerks as long as they took good pictures, but hanging out all day with people we actually liked was a major bonus!!! I'm telling you - stop reading reviews, call them, see if your date is available and if it is put down your deposit ASAP so you're not mad at yourself for procrastinating when they book up with someone else.

Jen and Ian are amazing! They went out of their way to make our pictures perfect. They got the feeling we wanted, with a little mix of black and whites and some very artistic lighting Pictures for the night time shots. They are a must if you want something new and exciting as well as something elegant and thoughtful.

UPDATE: I still have not received my pictures. Apparently when you are unhappy with their work you get forgotten. I was told two weeks ago that they were in the mail, now I am hearing a different story. We paid IN FULL before the wedding so there is no excuse for lying to a customer. Brides beware, if you hire this guy you may be setting yourself up for heartache.
I could not be more disappointed with my pictures. When I viewed my final collection of pictures I was heartbroken. The quality of the pictures is professional, however there seem to be a lot of missing shots. There is not a single picture of me by myself in my wedding gown. Also there are only a few (5) posed shots of my husband and I. This was the most important to me and I stressed this to them many times before the wedding. Out of the 560 pictures 125 are of us getting our hair done, that is way too many considering we didn't request them to be at the salon. The ceremony pictures are beautiful, but it seems to be the same shot over and over again with very little creativity involved. Throughout the day we asked to stop at certain places to take pictures and we were told that there was not enough time. I studied Ian's work on his website and it seemed like the perfect fit. In fairness instead of buying a package, we did only pay them by the hour for 6 hours so maybe that affected the amount of effort put forth.

My wedding photographer was AWESOME!!!! Actually, when you book you get 2 for 1, that is 2 great, experienced, artistic photographers for the entire day - unlimited! Ian and Jennifer work great together and were on their A-game the entire day making sure everything turned out perfectly! They were both very nice and pleasant to work with and have such an artistic eye when they work to capture the moment with poses as well as candid shots. They did there thing the whole day and you don't even realize they were there. They had a fantastic idea for an outdoor location to take pictures, and they scoped it out themselves prior to the big day to pick out the "good spots" for picture taking. They provided us with a sneek peek photo the next day after the wedding and it was stunning! We've gotten so many compliments on it and now that the rest of our pictures have been given to us for our viewing pleasure (just 3 weeks after the wedding date), so many other people have mentioned how much they love our photographer's work! We are very happy customers!!

Ian and Jen shot my wedding a few weeks ago and I could not be more thrilled with their work. Both of them were professional, yet personable and they made everyone feel comfortable with having their photos taken. The quality and creativity of the photos were more than I could have hoped for and I am having a hard time choosing favorites for the album! I would definitely recommend them to any bride who is looking for a beautiful mix of traditional and contemporary photos for their wedding day. These guys are the best!

Ian was an excellent photographer! He was really great to work with. I live out of town so we had to do everything through email and over the phone but he made it really easy. He always responded to my emails right away. The day of the wedding him and Jen were wonderful. They made sure to get all of the shots that we wanted and more. I love the pictures, I can't believe how great they turned out. I'm so glad we chose him as our photographer. I highly recommend Ian to any bride. Him and his work will be one thing you will not have to worry about.

Ian Gattie is the best possible choice we could have had for our wedding photography! Ian and his team are highly talented and simply have an artistic eye! We didn't get any of those cookie cutter poses that other photographers take-and we had so many compliments on our photos: "The best wedding pictures I have ever seen", "He is an artist!", just to name a few. I actually had one lady tell me I looked more beatiful than her own daughter when she got married! I attribute that all to Ian! He made our perfect day transfer into print and truly captured the special moments that we will treasure for a lifetime! I cannot wait to share with future generations to come. Using Ian Gattie photography was the best decision in our wedding planning- we just couldn't be happier with his services! Thank you Ian!!!!!!

Ian was an absolutely fantastic photographer and we were so happy that we chose him to capture our wedding day. He provided us with beautiful pictures that every one loved. His style is not like those boring, traditional photographers out there. The photos he took were so unique and special. And he was open for suggestions on what we wanted instead of sticking to the same old poses. Not only is he talented but he has a comforting and fun personality that made him a memorable part of the day not only for us but for our guests as well. Everyone commented on how great he was and how they especially liked the prom style photo booth that was provided in our package. The package that we chose was an awesome price for everything that was included, including tons of prints, an album, the photo booth and an engagement photo session. Choose Ian and I swear you won't be disappointed!! :-)

What beautiful photography for a low price. Ian Gattie's work is breathtaking. We are so happy with our photos. He is Buffalo's best kept secret as far as wedding photography is concerned. Why go to an over-priced photographer to get the same boring photos everyone else has when you can have Ian unique and stunning photos instead? So glad we found Ian Gattie for our photography.
