Leslie and Mark are absolutely incredible! They did our engagement photos, wedding photos, and photobooth for our wedding. They are very professional while having a relaxed no stress attitude. It's exactly what you need in the weeks leading up to the wedding when you need your vendors not to cause you stress! And spending a few minutes on their website or blog will show you how talented they are and what amazing work they do. A friend of mine (who is also a photographer) refers to them as 'wizards' because of some of the amazing shots they get! :)
Finally, if you're hesitant about adding the photobooth - trust me and just do it! It was a blast and people absolutely loved it. We were worried it wouldn't be worth it with only 45 guests, but it was well-used and looking at the pictures from the photobooth after we got back from our honeymoon was hilarious!

Wow! We love the photos. They look absolutely stunning and breathtaking. You and Mark definitely captured those special moments.....especially the one where I was getting emotional. I swear there was dust in the air. Jk. You guys are friendly to deal with, professional and also made the day fun, accommodating, and the time just flew. Thank you so much for delivering more than what we expected. You two have a lot of skill and are very talented.

We absolutely loved all the work done by Leslie. We found Sakura through a friend's referral, and from the day we contacted her, she was helpful, responsive and flexible. Her touch-screen photobooth was fantastic. Everyone had so much fun and quickly became a must-do activity during our event. The photos that she took during the ceremony are absolutely gorgeous. We felt proud and grateful to Leslie when we sent off pictures to the guests. She was never intrusive with picture taking during the event.. It has been 1 month since the event, and people still talk about Leslie's photobooth pictures that they went home with, and the great pictures of themselves that we sent by e-mail at a later date. My friends who were at the reception and are planning to have a wedding soon are going to use Leslie's service. We strongly recommend her business to anyone who is looking for a photographer with great insight, responsibility and professionalism at a very reasonable rate.

Leslie and Mark were such a fun couple. They made our photo session so much fun (and my husband and I are definitely not photo people). They have a way of capturing the moments very well and the pictures turn out very natural. Highly recommend them.

Leslie and Mark are the absolute BEST!! They did our wedding over 2 years ago and I am still getting compliments on their work. I could write a book about how wonderful they are. As another poster mentioned they make you look better then you ever thought possible without the awkwardness of doing any posing. Magical, is that going to far? They are magical! They captured true emotion in our pictures, when they first sent them to us we were both laughing and crying all at the same time. Simply amazing. On top of that it was exceptional value for money, they were timely in getting back to us and they are friendly and kind people. Best decision we made by far!!

Sakura photography is a phenomenal photo duo consisting of husband & wife, Mark & Leslie. I first met them when I was a B-maid for one of my really close friends' wedding & that's when I fell in love with them! (Sad for me, they are booked for one of my 2-day wedding event.) Their style is modern, contemporary, sincere, fun, amazing, captivating...I could just go on. Similarly to the previous review, they truly do find the beauty in any environment & any weather challenge :o) With the sometimes chaos that comes with weddings, they were both calm, confident, understanding & a great resource for help. We ran short of time for the pre-ceremony pics, but that didn't stop them from doing their job & resulting in beautiful photographs. The photographs were always vibrant and as natural as possible, capturing the people and the background behind them. So during the day, it was daylight, but at night, sometimes the background becomes really dark, not with them, the photos looked like you were there. I don't know how else to explain, you'll have to see for yourself. The price is what I estimate I would've paid for one day (10 hrs) + engagement session/items + photobooth (yep, a photobooth service!). My friends was less. They also make this beautiful storybook album that has every single picture taken, so like a digital photobook but better! Our friends had almost 1100 pics. And then the cost of their other add-on items are definitely much more affordable than what others may charge. I found other photographers with a similar style, quoting me much higher prices, but I still thought the overall final product of images Sakura offered, was better. They also offer an online album, password protected, of all your images for you to share with family & friends. They are large images & downloadable! Others have tiny pictures forcing you to pay additional for them. In the past, aside from having your day captured, all the "items" seemed important too. Like having lots of prints/proofs, albums, enlargements. After seeing the beautiful images Sakura has taken, my pov is changed, and having the pictures captured and one good album is all you really need, everything else can be done later. So thank you Sakura and thanks to my friends for finding them! Check them out: sakuraphotography.com PS - the Photobooth was a huge success!! See for yourself!

This is a man and wife team that has more talent than you can realize; until its time to view their work, wow. To work with they have a very calm and comfortable communication between you and the camera. They find beauty in overlooked places and compliment you with the right angles, shadows, and all very naturally-rarely do they ask you to pose. They have a wicked sense of humor as they blog all of their experiences with their clients with "teaser" photos. I am extremely happy with my investment with this company and will continue to use them to capture other important moments in our lives.

Leslie and Mark are so incredibly talented! We just got our shots back and they are amazing! They manage to capture moments as they happen, including really great shots of all our guests - smiling, laughing, crying - you name it! (This was very important to us since we were too busy to pay attention to our guests!) On top of that, the creative/posed shots are phenomenal. (Sometimes you find photographers who are only good at one or the other - but not with these guys!) To top it off, Leslie and Mark themselves are amazing to work with. They are laid back, but at the same time will take charge to get you amazing shots (and to make you feel comfortable so they don't seem fake or rehearsed). We also did the photobooth which was a HUGE hit! I can't recommend them enough!
