A little bit about us....

We are a husband and wife photography team who loves
natural light film photography.

To clarify, we are what is known as
a hybrid shooter, employing both the use of film in medium format, 35mm and digital technology. Film and digital
photography both have their place. Often, we get asked why are you shooting film again? The answer is very simple. Film affords our photography style a timeless air about it with unmatched colors. It requires us to slow down and think about how we
compose each shot, the lighting, the emotions, the styling. Digital is great for the fast paced photographs showing the “first look”, your “first kiss”, the wild dancing shots in the reception. It is very easy in today’s modern world to be swept up by new trends and ideas showcased on Pinterest, Wedding Blogs and even other
photography sites. But, our style of photography guarantees you that your wedding photos will look as good fifty years from now as you do on your wedding day. We are based in both Arizona and New York and adore traveling to shoot weddings all over the globe. It has been a lifelong passion of ours. We would love to be able to document your day through our eyes in the only way we know how....

Thank you....

We chose Verdi photographers after seeing their work in a couple of wedding magazines. They returned our initial inquiries promptly and always answered our email or phone calls cheerfully and directly. They were professional and friendly. They made taking pictures fun and really put us at ease. Our pictures are fantastic! They captured the magic of our day beautifully and our pictures are just as I imagined. They captured so many moments that we hardly remember because we were so caught up in our excitement,but now we can look back and relive the whole experience through new eyes. They are true artists and make a fantastic team!

Verdi Photography was a pleasure to work with & got back to us immediately with any questions we had. They were extremely attentive in getting any shots we had requested. Mindi & Rich are extremely talented & fun to work with & captured all the joy & excitement we felt on our special day. Our pictures came out absolutely beautiful! There were so many great shots that we really had a hard time narrowing down our final selection to go in our album. My husband & I could not be happier & would certainly use them again in the future. We would highly recommend them to future clients.

We found out about Verdi from an add on Facebook and met with them within 3 days of contacting them. We absolutely loved their work and booked them two days later. We've had an amazing experience with Verdi from our vintage apple picking engagement shoot to our wedding day. They have such a spectacular eye for background, angles, color contrast, and absolutely everything. They have provided the finest quality of services and captured all of the details and big moments from our day, without being imposing. Our guests and bridal party have mentioned that they barely noticed there were there. They also created an amazing fusion video for us of photographic stills and video set to music. When we watched the video, it brought back all of the memories and emotions of our wedding day. They managed to capture us completely and their photos and fusion video embody not only the occasion, but also who we are and what is important to us. If we ever need professional photos, we will definitely contact them in the future.

Rich and Mindi were absolutely amazing throughout the whole wedding process. When we first met with them we knew immediately that they would be our photographers. My husband is extremely shy, but after our engagement shoot with the Verdis he was completely comfortable and even excited about having his photo taken!! On the day of the wedding they helped with so many things beyond the realm of "taking pictures". They even helped make sure my veil was on right!! We did not feel that photographers were at our wedding, but friends and people that we were happy to share our day with!! They were extremely professional and by the time we got home from our honeymoon the photos were ready to be viewed! We would highly recommend Photography by Verdi!!

Rich and Mindi captured our special day more perfectly than I ever could have imagined. They were really fun people in general so spending my wedding day with them was actually enjoyable. I met with other photographers that I just knew I didn't want to be around on my day but these two were amazing. I also loved how they are SO experienced and work as a team. Every moment was captured from two perspectives so we always got the best view. They also tackled family photos with about 50 family members in less than 30 minutes which I loved because I didn't want to spend all of our time doing that. They were so creative, timely, easy going yet professional and I honestly didn't even notice that two cameras were right next to me in any of the key moments of the event. They were so stealthy and faded into the background. They were also very flexible with times, prices, etc to meet our needs. I would recommend Verdi photography to anyone having any type of wedding. Thank you SO much Rich and Mindi for doing such wonderful things with our cherished memories.

Anyone looking for amazing photos while working with great people should check out photography by verdi! My sister had such a bad experience for her wedding with the photographers she chose... so I was worried about this. Let me tell you, there is NOTHING to worry about when working with Mindi and Rich! They were so accomodating to make our wedding perfect and capture all the right images. They even came to Kansas to do our engagement shoot!! The two of them have such a good eye for beautiful angles and light. Their creativeness shows in all of their work. They were so nice on our wedding day. They even shuttled my hubby and I to a different photo location because it was so hot that they didn't want us to walk! These 2 are genuinely nice people with great hearts, and also happen to be AMAZING at what they do! We got our shots back so quickly after the wedding, so we didn't have to sit around anxiously and wait too!!

WOW is all I can say. They captured the entire night from start to finish. I highly recommend doing the upgraded package if it is in your budget as the video is really fun to have and a great was to share your day with people who could not make it. The pictures they take are not your standard boring ones so if you are looking for that, this is not the place for you. They create ways that every picture is interesting and make it where people want to see the pictures. They are fun to work with and get great shots all night so you will have ones of the reception that are keepers even! They did such a great job that if I have any other photo needs they are the people I would call.
