Can't say enough about Ralph Anderson. He was friendly, easy to work with, and got amazing pictures of all the right moments at the wedding. Not to mention, we lost the air conditioning partway through the reception due to a power outage, and he continued working his tail off during the heat. We are so pleased with the pictures. Incredibly, Ralph gives the bride and groom the rights to the photos after the wedding. We're able to print as many pictures as we want, without having to order them or pay for prints. I have never heard of another wedding photographer who does this. I would hire Ralph again in a second.

Ralph was absolutely wonderful to work with. He is the apitomy of professionalism and courtesy. On our wedding day we had tornado warning and torrential downpours, but Ralph pulled through and got all the family shots we wanted and a few of my husband and I before the rains hit. Once the storm had passed Ralph took my husband and back out to take more shots by the bay. His prices are also outstanding, he gives you ALL the pics he shoots, AND all the rights to reprint them where and when you want. We couldn't have chosen a better photographer to capture the memories of our day! Thank you Ralph!!!

Ralph Anderson of Magic Light Photography was great to work with, and I highly recommend him to any brides looking for a photographer in the Baltimore area! He was very friendly and professional. On my wedding day he took lots of nice posed shots, along with a lot of candid shots. When he took the candid shots we hardly even knew he was there, which is a good quality in a photographer. We received our photos four weeks after the wedding, and let me just say wow!! They look unbelievable, I can tell that he worked really hard for us. Ralph has a true talent for capturing the most flattering aspects of people. You are given the rights to all of your pictures, which is another benefit that you won't find everywhere. I honestly can't say enough nice things about my experiences with Ralph or about the quality of my wedding photos, I couldn't be happier!

We really love that how Ralph composed the pictures and guided us through the pictures taking. The whole process was very relaxing and comfortable. And the outcome of some pictures is simply outstanding! We especially love those pictures with golden fiery leaves as background and us lit up by the back light of the setting sun. It's simply beautiful!

Ralph Anderson was exactly the photographer we wanted for our wedding. As other reviewers have noted, he was very professional, but made us both very comfortable. His work is exceptional and you will not find another photographer that will work as hard for you on your wedding. The photos he took were great and really captured our wedding and more importantly the spirit of our wedding. The proof book and the digital cd’s of all our photos were great. Do your research on the costs of obtaining the rights to your photographs from other vendors. I think you will find that Magic Light Photography is far and above the best choice for quality and price. We couldn’t be happier with having Ralph Anderson a part of our special day. Highly recommended for weddings at the Naval Academy.

This vendor provided the most wonderful service and awesome quality of pictures. There were approximately 525 pictures that were "keepers" and I wanted to put 300 of them in a photo album. I had the hardest time picking only 300. All the photos were beautiful The turn around time was approx. 3 weeks, as promised. We got married on a hot June day and Ralph did an awesome job keeping up with the tempo. All the guests jokingly asked if he was a runner because he seemed to be everywhere but was so unobtrusive. The best part is the digital negatives are included in his price and he stayed past what we paid for. I would 100% recommend this vendor to all my friends and family and everyone on this website.

My husband and I searched forever for a photographer who would provide us with a CD of our wedding photos at an affordable price. Ralph made the drive to the shore to visit with us and show us his portfolio... we loved his style and booked him the same day. We've had many people who see our wedding pictures say they're some of the most beautiful pictures they have ever seen!

I can only say good things about Magic Light Photography. Ralph Anderson was completely professional but very nice and laid-back. He would be great for brides who have some idea about some photos they'd like to capture, but would also prefer many natural photographys (candid). He jumps around all over the place, but is not distracting or obnoxious, and really works hard to capture moments without fake posing. The price was great. He burns a CD with all photos (digital), and prints them all and puts them in a very nice box album. This would especially be good for those who want to make their own albums, and don't want to pay $1,000+ for a professional album. Also, for both the initial meeting and the final post-wedding meeting, he came to our apartment himself and showed us albums and then delivered our photographs and was really interested in our approval or suggestions.

We were so glad we found Ralph! We wanted a photographer who would capture the moments as they evolved naturally, but also get a few of the must-have portraits for posterity. From the beginning we knew he would be a good fit. We loved how straight-forward his website was, and that you could actually see a no-gimmick price. So many photographers say "call for a price," which really seems to mean "you can't afford me!" Like everyone, we wanted a professional photographer, but didn't want to break the bank. With Magic Light Photography you get a lot of bang for your buck! We loved that his packages include a professional-quality print of each final, touched-up image in a reference binder, along with the images on CD/DVD. Unlike some other photographers, he releases the copyright to the clients so they can use the images as they see fit. Not only did he have the business model we wanted, we loved his photos. He has a good "eye," and captured a lot of moments we don't remember happening! He was flexible and responsive to our needs, for example he had never done a "first look" session before but he gave it a try and it worked out great! We were also impressed that he attended the rehearsal at the church to get an idea of what space he had to work in, and how things would go. We were eager to see our photos, so we were thrilled that he turned them around very quickly, just two and a half weeks after the wedding. This is remarkable considering he reviews and touches up each one. Our only slightly negative comment is that, while it is great that people can order prints directly from the photo-hosting website he currently uses, the photo viewing website itself is a little awkward. Not horrible, but the interface is a bit frustrating even for the computer-savvy user. But that is a small detraction from an otherwise fantastic experience. We highly recommend Ralph of Magic Light Photography. We will treasure the memories he captured of our wedding and reception!
