I would recommend Don and his staff to anyone and everyone hoping for beautiful wedding photos. He captured the every moment in great detail. I recommend having 2 photographers, though, which worked out for us, because they were able to capture us AND the guests. Our video from a different vendor was very poor, which made the photos all the more important, and Don's slideshow was just as good as, if not better than, any video.

So far so good. We haven't received the actual pictures back yet. However, he was prompt, courteous, unobtrusive throughout the ceremony and party. He worked well with the DJ and other staff, etc. I will add more once I actually receive the photos back.

I know we were one of Don's last weddings, but we felt that he and his wife deserved a shout out. Don and his assistant did a fantastic job at our wedding. Don is quietly funny and easily puts people at ease. Also, I never really noticed that they were there--but at the same time they documented everything. It takes great skill to not be intrusive and still get fantastic shots.

We also booked our photo booth through The Edge, and it was so much fun! Our guests loved it. My favorite is that it isn't a box that everyone crams into--its basically a backdrop with a camera in front of it--you can easily fit 8-10 people into a shot. The photo booth attendant was so friendly and the props were good quality. We were even given a book with a copy of all of the photos and messages from our guests as well as a DVD copy of all the photos--this is definitely a crowd pleaser and I highly recommend having a photo booth at your wedding.

Don and Ines had our photos back to us with a mock up of our book in less than a month. Along with the photos was a DVD slideshow put to music that we could watch with our friends and family--it was a really special personal touch. Ines makes beautiful photo books and has a great eye for design. Thank you so much to both of you for capturing and displaying so many special moments so that Brent and I can enjoy them forever.

We had a wonderful time working with The Edge Photography and the photographs turned out stunning. From the moment we met with Don and Ines we realized that we had found the right photographer. Artisitically, Don was able to understand exactly what my husband liked and wanted for our wedding photos and he ultimately exceeded our expectations. We appreciated their flexibility with our engagement session and the beautiful photos that he took.

The day of our wedding we had a glitch with our planner, luckily Don was SO professional and talented that he was able to make sure we got all of the necessary photos even though the morning wasn't going as scheduled. Having him there really helped to put us at ease on such a fun, but stressful morning. :)

At our wedding Don and his second photographer were able to capture all of the important moments in a very unobtrusive way. They took uniquely beautiful and creative pictures that we absolutely love. Their photos really tell the story of the entire day in a beautiful and romantic way. Don was able to do all of our formal shots (my parents were very concerned about having a lot of formal photos) and many less staged photos which gave us a great balance.

We received the proofs in one month - which was fabulous! Don and Ines worked to create an amazing wedding album for us. They were so patient with me as we went back and forth with countless emails with my questions about the album and the photos included. I truly appreciated how responsive they were and how they answered all of my questions. I am so happy with how all of the photos and the album have turned out.

I know that we made the right choice for us on photographer. Not only were the pictures stunning but The Edge Photography as a whole was a joy to work with. I will be recommending them to anyone I know who is looking for a photographer.

WOW! I could not recommend Don and Ines Harper of The Edge Photography higher. They came recommended by my venue and they far surpassed any/all of my expectations for my wedding day this past summer. From my engagement shoot, to the wedding day footage, and complimentary slideshow that came with the CDs containing my jpegs, everything was absolutely flawless. I just got the final copy of my wedding album yesterday and it is high quality and simply perfect! Don was easy to get in touch with throughout the entire process and does a phenomenal job. This husband-wife team are very professional and very talented. Their attention to detail is very much appreciated and a steal for their very reasonable price. There are many aspiring amateur photographers out there now, but Don is a professional. The printing, binding, presentation of photos is all of the highest quality. The photos capture all of my most special moments from the day, a true testament to Don's eye for taking a phenomenal photo. Don and Ines are true professionals and were a pleasure to work with. I will recommend The Edge Photography to everyone!

Don, Ines and their team were a pleasure to work with and produced wonderful work. We are overjoyed with their products and they have our absolute highest recommendation.

Their professionalism and genuine passion for their craft shone through from the moment we met them; we had planned to meet with several other photographers, but after speaking with Don and Ines, knew that we wanted them to record our special day.

Don and his co-photographer were extremely active and non-intrusive on the day of the wedding; Don effortlessly shifted between calmly and efficiently controlling the scenes he needed (big group photos, different family members etc.) and remaining in the background, capturing moments as they happened.

The pictures, from the pre-wedding shoot to the family portraits to the candid shots throughout the evening were all truly beautifully shot and masterfully edited. There is absolutely nothing we wish he had done differently.

Don and Ines were also extremely responsive to all our questions regarding their packages and services, as well as to our busy schedules post-wedding. Don and Ines sent us our final album proofs in a very timely manner, but we were unable to review them as a couple for over a month because we were both traveling for work. However, once we got our act together on our end and got back to Don and Ines, they responded immediately and got right back to work on our product even though I'm sure they were extremely busy with other projects by that point.

Don and Ines beautifully captured the spirit and happiness of our wedding and were so wonderful to work with. We could not have picked a better vendor and absolutely recommend The Edge Photography to any and all of our friends and family.

We used The Edge Photography for our wedding, and in fact they were the first vendor that we met with and booked (after the church and reception site, that is). I had researched wedding photographers in the Northern VA area on wedding wire, and looked at a bunch of the suggested websites, and was captivated by the colors that were brought out in The Edge's photo gallery. Because we were having an early November wedding, we were hoping that the fall foliage would play a big part in our photos, and it was amazing to see all of the vibrant reds, oranges, blues and greens that he was able to capture. It was a double plus that Don had worked at both our church and reception site previously, so he had a good idea as to where he would be able to get the best photos.

On the day of the wedding, Don and his assistant, Voula, arrived promptly to photograph both my husband and I, and were so professional. They took some great candid shots as we each got ready, and the ceremony and formal shots afterward are really beautiful! During the ceremony and reception, I wasn't even really aware that either of them were there, which was amazing! I hate when you go to a wedding and the photographer is standing in the middle of everything, and you always have to feel like you are looking your best. Because of their ability to melt into the crowd, we got some really awesome candid shots!

Another plus of choosing The Edge is that Ines is a graphic designer, and she puts together a preliminary wedding album with photos that she thinks will look great together. It was really refreshing to not have to go through all 1700 pictures from our wedding day and choose every single one that we wanted to go into the album. All that we have to do now, is look through her preliminary album and replace photos that we want to switch out!

We would definitely recommend The Edge Photography!

We had done a lot of shopping around, and in the end the package we received for the price from The Edge could not be beat.
The way you tell the professionalism of a business is by how they handle the hard situations. Like any big event, we had some issues at ours (no fault of Don’s). I must say that Don handled our situation better than anyone could have hoped for. He fully addressed all our concerns to our full satisfaction and worked with us to make sure our photo album was a top quality product. It takes real integrity, compassion and the desire to deliver the best product possible to handle the situation the way he did; we are so thankful we selected him to capture our special day.
I looked at several friend’s wedding albums, and none of them could compare to what The Edge produced at a much better price. It's hard to describe how pictures done correctly could make such a difference, but they do. The proper setting, lighting, posing, and contrast all contribute to the quality of the shoot. The photographs were very well done with a good mix of staging the shots and capturing the candid shots to get the feel of the event. It's that pool of great shots that provides the basis for the books. Don did a fantastic job capturing the event for us.
Besides the beautiful pictures in the book, Ines did a wonderful job telling the story and giving an artful flare to every page. Unlike other albums where photos were printed on a white background , each page had a different color coordinated background which made the product look like a professional work of art. The books themselves, with high grade leather, were gorgeous! Each page was a heavy durable cardboard that will last for years. Thanks to Don, Ines and The Edge for such a wonderful product and keepsake. We would definitely recommend them to any couples out there planning their big day.
