My husband and I were thrilled to have Erin and Gavin as our wedding photographers! Not only is their work beautiful, but they are incredibly kind and accommodating. We were planning our wedding from out of state, and Gavin and Erin were so responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. Our wedding was very small, and we really appreciated that they were able to perfectly customize their photography offerings to fit the needs of our day. We even received a hand-written card from them in the initial stages of our planning congratulating us and wishing us well. We didn't think they could surpass our expectations any further, but they did! On the day of our wedding, they kept us calm and at ease the entire day -- they were excellent at giving us direction when we needed it, and we couldn't have been happier with the final result! Gavin and Erin did an incredible job capturing every special moment of our day, and their photography is absolutely gorgeous. They are two of the sweetest people and are such a talented team. They came highly recommended by our venue and we can see why! Thank you Gavin and Erin! We’re so grateful that you could be a part of our day!

Gavin and Erin, a husband and wife team, are amazing! Finding a great photographer was really important to us, since that's really what you have left after the wedding forever - the pictures. We took a few meetings before meeting with Gavin and Erin, and clicking immediately. My husband and I aren't always very comfortable in front of the camera, and we shared these concerns with Gavin and Erin, who responded kindly and told us they had tricks to help put us at ease on the day of. Boy were they right! Throughout the day they made us laugh and kept us comfortable through the many photos. They are just fun to be around!

The quality of their work is incredible. We could tell from the first meeting that they are true professionals who value their craft and work hard at perfecting it. We got our engagement photos back and our jaws just about hit the floor. They were beautiful, and we felt they made us look great! The wedding photos are even more stunning. Not only did they take the traditional portraits beautifully, but they captured so many fun non-staged memories throughout the reception. We were so impressed by the way they were so non-intrusive about taking pictures, but somehow they were always there to capture those spontaneous moments.

Having a husband and wife team was also a huge advantage - not only did they seem to have their own "language" that allowed them to communicate quickly and get the pictures done really efficiently, but they were also able to split up on the morning of, with Erin hanging out with me and my bridesmaids and Gavin hanging out with my husband and his groomsmen. This helped speed everything along big time.

Our wedding was probably a bit of a challenge for them, because it was at 11am so the light was really bright. But you would never know it from the pictures. They still turned out crisp and clear, with amazing color.

We spent a good chunk of our budget on photography, but it was absolutely worth it for these guys!Thanks G&E!

Gavin and Erin were an amazing team to work with. My wife and I arent the most comfortable sort of people in front of a camera, but Gavin and Erin were absolute pro's in getting us out of our shell and comfortable.

One of their biggest strengths for us, is they were fierce advocates for what we wanted during the wedding. Erin handled our pushy and opinionated family members with grace and constantly deferred to my wife to make sure her wants were fulfilled first. She kept us on track and on schedule, with a calm and composed mood that kept us in a good place mentally for the entirety of our wedding. I cant say enough about how great they were to work with.

To top it all off, the pictures were amazing. They captured the essence of our wedding day. Every time we look at them, you can hear an audible gasp as we relive the day through pictures. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great time with great photographers.

Gavin Wade Photographers is the only way to go. I'm telling you after speaking with them and seeing their work, you will agree they are definitely the best. If you truly want "In the moment pictures" and memories that will last a life time contact them. They have a great team Leslie & Eli did our wedding on October 18, 2014. They were so friendly and so professional. I can't thank them enough. We fired our photographer 1 week before our wedding because he sucked. Called Gavin and he just handled it. We have amazing pictures. Personally, I hate taking pictures Eli and Leslie made me feel at ease. If you getting married or planning an event contact them now!!! Amazing Pictures and amazing to work with.

Gavin & Erin were an absolute joy to work with!! They were flexible and helped us create a customized wedding photography package that met our needs. Gavin was attentive and quick to respond to any questions I had during the wedding planning process.

When Erin and Gavin showed up on our wedding day they were friendly, collected, and ready to start taking pictures. They maximized every minute of the day to provide us with a wonderful collection of pictures to remember our big day for many years to come. The photos are phenomenal and our family and friends have been gushing over how beautiful they are! They were also very fast in getting our pictures to us -- they blogged our wedding just a week after the big day (we weren't even home from our honeymoon yet).

Choosing Gavin Wade Photography was one of the best choices we made for our wedding! Sending our love and blessings to you, Gavin & Erin!! Thanks for everything!!

I am one of those impossible fiances/husbands. Here was my initial take: "Why must we have a professional photographer? We're spending HOW much? Can't we just have my buddy's photographer wife manage this? Everyone will be taking pics - lets just leverage theirs".
Boy am I an ass - and boy was I wrong. Gavin and Erin were amazing. The pictures are amazing. We can't put a price on the amount of joy our parents have had in going through the portfolio. Julie's (my wife) dad had a cup of coffee as a professional photographer - he can't stop raving.
And the husband/wife duo of Gavin and Erin are perfection. Yin and Yang. They did our engagement photos - which we love so much. Erin captured everything as Julie prepped for the ceremony, and Gavin captured the good parts of me fighting the very idea of being photographed in the first place.
They were assertive when required, and subtle when appropriate. We were just so super pleased to have gone with them - the output was quite something. Hooray!

Gavin and Erin are incredible. After having our initial meeting with them, we immediately hired them! We felt so confident and comfortable with Gavin and Erin that we actually never met with any other wedding photographers. Without a doubt, we knew we could trust them with photographing our engagement and wedding!

We were told hiring a husband-wife team would be an advantage, but Gavin and Erin surpassed all of our expectations. They are very professional and photograph with such ease. We thought it would be awkward to be in the spotlight, but they were able to make us feel so comfortable. The more we got to spend time with Gavin and Erin, the more fun we had together. On our wedding day, we had so much fun with them, it was more like new friends were photographing us all day!

Gavin and Erin are attentive, responsive, friendly, thoughtful and of course, talented. We can't speak highly enough of them and will recommend them to all future engaged friends of ours! We will miss our fun e-mail exchanges and FaceTime chats, but know we will definitely keep in touch with the Wades. Our engagement and wedding photos turned out just as we had dreamt and we look forward to working with them again in the future! Gavin and Erin, thank you for being so wonderful to work with over 17 months. We are incredibly lucky to have met you and are so happy you were a part of the best day of our lives! :)

As most if not all reviews have mentioned, Gavin and Erin are incredible photographers. There are a few points that I also loved about this married team. First, they blend into the wedding as if they were guests themselves. When I received the photographs almost all the pictures were candid and really portrayed the emotions of our guests, my husband and I. This was my main reason for hiring them in the first place. I can look back at these photos in years to come and remember how much fun everyone had at our wedding.
Second, Gavin and Erin have a fast response time. Gavin would get back to me within a day anytime I contacted him via email or phone. More importantly however, is how fast they got the photos to us. For our engagement shoot we got our pictures within a week and a half. After our wedding my husband and I took a week long honeymoon, and while we were gone they had emailed me with a sneak peak of photos. When we got back we had all our photos that next week. Unbelievable!
Finally, my husband and I chose Gavin and Erin not just based on there skills as photographers, but more so on the type of people they are. After our initial meeting, our gut instinct told us these were good people that loved photography and conducted themselves in a professional manner. I would without a doubt hire them again for any photos we need in the future.

We hired Gavin and Erin to shoot our wedding at the La Venta Inn this past November 9th. Prior to hiring anyone, we had interviewed several photographers and did a Skype session with Gavin and Erin. After that Skype session we knew they were the photographers for us. Even through Skype their radiant personalities shine through and we instantly felt comfortable. My wife was a little nervous about being the focus of all those pictures and they completely put her at ease.

The wedding day came off without a hitch. Gavin and Erin work as this incredible team. It's almost like they can hear each others thoughts as they're shooting. They're quick and efficient, but take the time needed to get that perfect shot. We were fighting daylight and they worked so hard to make sure we got all we could out of the fading sunset.

Finally, after receiving the pictures they took, we realized the proof really is in the pudding. The pictures are amazing. Just beautiful. In the wedding world, I now know, there's only a few things you keep after all is said and done... and your pictures are the most precious. We are so glad we entrusted that task to Gavin and Erin. They're great photographers, qualified and responsible and talented... but they're also really good PEOPLE. For anything we do, we like to hire people who feel like family. Gavin and Erin most certainly feel like family. We can't recommend them more.
