When I got engaged, the first thing I did was call to see if Kristina Carter could shoot my wedding! I had seen Tina's work before, as she had done my best friend's wedding a year ago, and her photos turned out absolutely amazing. My wedding was no exception. Kristina was able to capture every aspect of our wedding day. I loved how she took a lot of cameos as well as amazing detail shots of the my dress, shoes, cake, flowers, decor, etc. Each photo turned out better than the next. When it comes to cutting costs for a wedding do not skimp on photography. She is worth the money and I promise you, you will not be disappointed!

In short, Tina and Aaron we're incredible. Being the guy during the wedding planning, my stereotypical job was to try to keep it within a reasonable budget. "Get cheaper flowers, get a cheaper photographer" were my main pieces of advice.

My (now) wife told me it would be worth the extra money to go with Vrai, and she was absolutely right. They did exactly what we asked, they were incredibly professional yet still personable (I spent as much time talking with Aaron as I did with my groomsman before the wedding), and the 90 or so pictures we've gotten back as our preview are completely stunning.

We had a huge snafu with our bus breaking down, a terrible storm for one hour exactly during when we were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony, and a family member pass away just days before the wedding. The pictures we've gotten back so far have let us see what a beautiful night it really was, and will help us look back on our wedding as a wonderful evening, rather than focus on the sad aspects of it.

Thank you so much, Tina and Aaron!

Having beautiful photographs was one of my top priorities and, once I saw their website and met with them, I knew I had to work with Vrai. Kristina and Aaron were so fun to work with. We have only seen the teasers so far (which were shown to us just days after the event) but, if they are any indication of what else is to come, I am over the moon with our photos. Vrai is on the pricey end, but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. You won't get cheesy posed pictures from them, just gorgeous memories that are fine art.

We worked with Molly Grace of Vrai for our engagement shoot and our wedding pictures. I can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was. Molly and her assistant were amazing. Great people who were fun to have as a part of our day. The pics can't be adequately described.... amazing documentary/photojournalism style pics. LOVE THEM!!! worth every penny.

Kristina was BY FAR the best investment of our wedding. Her pictures are BEAUTIFUL and unique and truely are amazing! The price is a little steep, but totally worth it! I would use her again in a heartbeat! Another perk to using VRAI is that they donate 10% of your package cost to a charity, which you can choose..we chose the american cancer society in memory of my husband's mother. Kristina and Aaron were fun to work with and have captured great moments throughout our day!

I had to give Kristina 5 stars across the board because she was absolutely wonderful! Her photography is amazing, and she was a great person to work with. She is certainly not the cheapest photographer to hire, but she is worth every penny you spend - after all, after the cake is eaten, the guests leave, the dress packed in a box, what else do you have left from your wedding day?

wow! i wonder if there's enough room to write everything about how awesome, sweet, reliable, and professional tina is?

i initially chose tina as our photographer based upon her showing us a slideshow of previous weddings she had captured. we met her at her house and we were blown away. not only by her ability to capture the "little things," but also by her quiet yet beautiful spirit. little did we know our lives with tina were just beginning...

part of our package included an engagement session and once we saw those pictures, we knew we made the right decision.

she showed up to our rehearsal and requested a copy of our program. i was curious until i realized that we were reviewing it together so she could memorize the bridal party's names (and other "important people"). best. customer. service. ever. then, she showed up super-early on the wedding day and stayed until the last person left the dance floor. she ever rode the party bus with us (which was the most fun of the whole night so i'm *very* glad we have pictures)!

a bit later, we received our pictures and were in awe of their amazing-ness. everything looked more beautiful than i remembered. she even helped us sort our pictures. (we're not exactly "creative types.")

fast forward a couple years (and gabillions of compliments on our wedding photos later)...i contacted her to capture my daughter being, well, herself. that was in 2008 when she turned one. this august, i just saw tina again for my daughter's 4th birthday (and fourth photo shoot). everyone, including myself, raves about how beautiful and stunning and perfect and meaningful the pictures are.

throughout it all, tina has always been sweet yet undeniably professional. she is responsive and helpful and beyond talented. she's extraordinary and i will continue to work with her year after year because no one captures my daughter's personality quite like tina.

in sum: hire her!
