Astrid and Rene Photography, Inc.
Astrid and Rene did an excellent job on my engagement and wedding photos. They went above and beyond, to ensure both my husband and I were happy with the process, as well as the end result. An example of this: I told Astrid that I wanted to do a picture with the bridal party holding signs that said "...And they lived happily ever after"... I expected her to bring paper and sharpies, as it was such a last minute request, but she arrived with four professionally printed foam backed signs. The attention to detail and extra touches like that, really meant the world to us!
Aside from being exceptionally professional and responsive, they are both uber talented. They really did make my wedding photos into frame-able artwork - that my husband and I will both cherish for years to come.
Our wedding was a destination wedding, so when choosing a photographer I had initially set up a few appointments to meet with a couple people I felt represented the feeling I was hoping for in my photos. After meeting with Rene & Astrid, I immediately cancelled my appointments I had scheduled after them. They were everything I had hoped for and more ! They captured our special day with innovation, creativity and class!!! I wanted a more "artistic" feel to my photos instead of the everyday "average" formal portraits that are attributed to weddings! They completely exceeded my expetations and I couldn't be more pleased with the phenomenal collection I have of my most important day for years to come!! I explained my vision and they understood & transformed it into sheer beauty!!! I will forever be grateful to Astrid & Rene for their personal service, dedication, experience & most importantly their stunning photographs that I will have for eternity!!! Working with them was MY pleasure & I personally recommend them to any future brides & grooms searching for unique, creative & STUNNING photographs !!!!
You guys are an amazing team. Both of you did an amazing job rounding up the family, getting everyone organized, and taking quick pictures right after the wedding. I know this is not an easy task (especially with our families :) ). Thank you for helping us take wonderful pictures by giving us creative ideas for posing, action shots, etc. Further thanks for capturing all of the memories at the reception. There was ALOT of dancing going on and a lot of moments to catch (uncle drunk dancing, Dad dancing out of pure happiness, Cayden dancing the night away, etc). I cannot wait to see the final pictures as I know they will be wonderful.
Astrid and Rene were a dream to work with!! They both provided such a calming presence for my husband and I. Very supportive, encouraging and REAL - we never felt "weird" or "posed" when taking pictures. Our wedding coordinator also mentioned they were great to work with, and our guests loved them too. We can't wait to see how they captured our special day but if our engagement pictures were of any proof, we know it will be beautiful!
This review is long overdue, but is so well deserved! Astrid and Rene were fantastic from beginning to end. They are very easy going, easy to communicate with and open to new ideas, but what really stands out is, of course, their photography. Our wedding pictures are SOOOOO ridiculously beautiful and the time, artistry and care that Astrid puts into editing the images is very apparent. I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments we've gotten. We got every dollars worth out of our photography and hiring Astrid and Rene Photography was absolutely the best decision we made during our wedding planning process! And not to mention our album ....it is the most beautiful album I have EVER seen!! (even when I put my bias aside) It is like a dense and decadent piece of visual dessert that we will forever treasure! I HIGHLY recommend them.
Astrid and Rene are the best! They're professional, flexible, and really good people. They were responsive to the needs of our families and really good at capturing the spirit of the entire day--they're truly artists! I can't wait to use them again for our next milestone!
I can't brag about Astrid and Rene enough. Personally- a blast to work with, extremely patient and very flexible. Professionally- WOW! Our wedding pictures are works of art! What more can a couple ask for? Not only are our cherished wedding photos beautiful but they are one-of-a-kind fantastic pieces of art! I think couples would be crazy not to commission them. Thanks again, Astrid and Rene!
Astrid and Rene are fabulous! They are such a sweet couple and so easy to work with. Our engagement pictures and wedding pictures turned out perfect! I really like that they take a mix of both the traditional and artistic photos. It makes for a great representation of the day. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone getting married in the Naples area.
Astrid and Rene are wonderful! They are creative and made us feel so comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have the BEST.
Astrid and Rene are an amazing team of artists! They captured every single special moment of our wedding. Every meaningful glance, romantic kiss, moment of laughter & tear of happiness was caught on film. From our very first meeting with this dynamic team we were instantly put at ease and felt a level of trust due to their professionalism and warm personalities.
I was especially pleased with the way our photos were edited and enhanced to bring out the best possible images. I also loved the fact that one camera caught all of our (bride and groom) expressions while a second camera captured the smiles & reactions of our friends and family.
The funny thing is that I don't remember seeing Astrid or Rene at all during our reception! They captured every second of the celebration while managing to quietly blend in which allowed us to enjoy every second of our special evening.
I am so pleased with our photographs and would recommend them to every single bride and groom!
Astrid and Rene were wonderful. I would recommend them to any couple looking for an classic yet artsy flare to their pictures. We LOVED our pictures and everyone tells us they look like they should be right out of a magazine. They were very attentive to every little detail going on at the wedding.... which made for less stress for everyone. :) I highly recommend them!
We hired Astrid and Rene for our daughter's wedding. This was the sixth of our childrens weddings and by far the most enjoyable, professional, creative photography. We would recommend Astrid and Rene for any occassion. They truely were a big part of making the day extra special for our daughter and new son. What a lovely talented couple they are!!!!!
Astrid and Rene did a great job! Our pictures are awesome, better than what we expected. For us, our wedding pictures were one of the most important things for our special day because of the memories that they capture stay forever. Finding them was great! We enjoy looking at our pictures so much, they are all so beautiful that we dont ever get tired of looking at them! We would recommend Astrid and Rene to anyone, trust me!!! ;)
Thank you!!! :)
Astrid and Rene are top notch. My fiancée and I are getting married soon and we requested Astrid and Rene shoot our pre-engagement. They did a wonderful job from start to finish. We first meet with both of them to discuss our plans. We wanted a relaxed Island style theme look. Having years of experience in Photography they knew exactly what we wanted. During the meeting we discussed some of the locations we would shoot at, time of day, and lighting for the best results. To be honest I learned so much though the experience that I'm now better as a point and shoot photographer. Finally we wrapped up with discussing what color and style of clothes we were going to wear. They took our ideas on what we were going to wear and matched it up perfectly with the locations of the shoot. The shoot was fun Astrid and Rene are so relaxed and they caught every moment on film. Basically it was up to us what we wanted to do and they went right along working and correcting every angle for the best results. When it was time to see the results we were breathless. Each photo had a moment that would last a lifetime. It was amazing to see what they were able to do. Our family and friends thought we were models! These moments on film will be with us for generations to come. We already have them on our list for the wedding. Overall the whole experience was relaxing and the results were amazing. Astrid and Rene are nothing but 100 percent class. We look forward to the wedding photos and we will recommend the husband and wife team to anyone.
Fantastic service and very professional. All our pictures turned out amazing and the albums were absolutely perfect. We definately recieved more value for our money than we had expected.
All in all, we highly recommend them!!
I have worked with them on multiple occasions and have been impressed every time - love the quality of their work!
The Best of both worlds :-). I love that this couple have both a "girls" and "guys" point of view on each picture ;-). I always remember how I met them...it was after falling in love with the quality of their work and "fall" album at a bridal show. I had not seen anything like it before!!! Another great perk is that Astrid has a "graphic design background" which allows her to make picture compositions in basically anything and everything. Their vision as a couple is a strength and they always seem to be extremely accommodating to our customers. I LOVE and ENJOY working with both Astrid and Rene and know you will too :-).
Astrid and Rene are one of the most talented photographers we have had the pleasure of working with. They have a really distinctive style that makes them stand out amongst the many photographers available. They are truly artists who have mastered their craft!
Astrid & Rene are so easy to work with. They have such a unique style & finishing to their product. What impressed me most was that they really captured the personality & spirit of the couple that got married at the Estates. I highly recommend them to any couple looking for spectacular photographs.
