J.Perlman R.Lutge Photography
We can't say enough about these photographers. They took our engagements photos and we absolutely loved them! Then they did the wedding and they were so easy to work with and took all of the pictures we wanted. They are truly gorgeous photos that have captured our perfect day to a tee! They are a must!!!
I loved working with Joyce and Randy. Still waiting for our wedding photos but our engagement photos were wonderful! Joyce and Randy were so easy to work with and made us feel so comfortable. They were willing to have the engagement shoot in Philadelphia (our neighborhood) while they were on vacation.
We loved having them around! We recommend them to anyone getting married in Northern California.
Every once in a while, my new husband and I will look at each other and say, “I miss Joyce and Randy!” We aren’t kidding! Joyce and Randy were an absolute dream to work with. From the moment we met them we felt comfortable and understood, that they were able to see us for who we were, and thus able to capture beautiful moments of such an exciting and pivotal time in our lives. On our wedding day they felt like knowing friends, with a gentle and unobtrusive presence, always there at just the right times. Not only are they incredible artists, they are extremely professional and organized, friendly and helpful. We just received our photos, and couldn’t be more pleased! The biggest thing that I am struck by when viewing the images is the truth that they contain. I feel that I have a window into real people at real moments in time, and that the simplicity of such moments speaks volumes about the people in them, and about life in general. The number of incredibly beautiful and artistic images is overwhelming, and we know that it’ll be a real challenge to narrow them down to a reasonable number for our album! Thank you, Joyce and Randy, we can’t wait to work with you again soon!
Joyce and Randy were an absolute joy to work with. Actually of all our wedding planning, photographers were who we had to meet the most with, we had trouble finding the right people. The second we sat down with Joyce and Randy, we just knew we had found the right photographers. Their personalities were great, their photos amazing, and we loved their perspective. The pictures came out great and they were so wonderful to work with. We got so many compliments on them, people at the wedding loved their attitude. They were flexible and smiling. They didn't mind other people taking pictures, and the pictures they took really captured the day and were taken in a style that my husband and I really wanted.
I highly recommend them!
We recommend our photographers to everyone we know. They were fun to have as part of our day, able to share in our most intimate moments in a way that was unobtrusive. They captured spontaneous moments and expressions in such a way that we felt we not only got exquisite photographs, but memories of our emotions and interactions. They had a flat fee for the whole day (8-9 hours) of photography (no additional charges for the 7th hour, etc). They had a variety of album packages and the option to buy digital prints. Their service was impeccable and artistic.
Joyce Perlman and Randy Lutge photographed our wedding, and we could not be happier with their work. We compared their photographic styles to others prior to our wedding, and they immediately caught our eyes. They included an engagement photo shoot as a way to learn what might work best for us. Throughout the wedding day, they captured so many moments that recorded the event with an artistic touch.
We could not have wished for better photographers at our wedding. Randy and Joyce have a very friendly and comforting demeanor which makes working with them feel natural. They were able to organize and communicate effectively with our large family and they have the great ability to adapt and change with the mood of the moment. They have a great synergy between them; they know how each other think and their different styles complement each other magnificently. Our pictures are incredible!!! Randy and Joyce have an amazing ability to make something as cliché as wedding pictures into something brilliantly unique and aesthetically satisfying.
Choosing the photographer who would capture our wedding was both the most difficult and the easiest choice we had to make. As with most couples, having beautiful wedding photos that would provide lasting memories was one of our highest priorities. This broad search made the decision process a long one as we spent weeks interviewing photographers and scouring websites to find that photographer who could not only take beautiful pictures (there are many photographers who can take a great shot) but also capture the spirit and story of the wedding.
When we met Joyce and Randy, the decision became an easy one - they were the perfect match. While we had seen many great photos, their body of work was by far a cut above the rest. They are the consummate wedding photographers who continue to see the beauty, love, and joy in weddings. In addition, as a team they brought two different artistic styles which would ensure our wedding would be captured from a number of perspectives. Finally, although we didn't know it when we began the process, we quickly realized how important it was for us to also work with true professionals with a great sense of humor and flexibility. Weddings after all bring all sorts of craziness, and Joyce and Randy stepped beyond their roles as chroniclers to help calm nerves and ensure things ran smoothly!
Their photographs captured not only the events and emotions of the day - they tell the story of family and friendships, of past, present and future. We chose not to have a videographer at our wedding because we knew that what actually happened there was not as important as the emotions that were felt as we brought our lives together in celebration. From traditional formal shots to poignant moments caught in passing, Joyce and Randy's photographs capture that spirit exactly, and we can't thank them enough for providing eternal reminders of the joy of that time!
We are thrilled with the pictures Joyce and Randy took of our wedding. One of the most important factors we considered in our selection of a wedding photographer was our comfort level with them. Before the day of our wedding, we had an opportunity to spend a few hours with Joyce and Randy at Bakers Beach in San Francisco taking informal shots for our album.
Another very important component on the decision of the photographer was the flexibility of the package. With Joyce and Randy we were able to arrange a portfolio of exactly what we wanted.
We were married at Nestldown and Joyce and Randy knew where to take the great classic shots, but they also captured the uniqueness of our wedding day. They were incredibly professional, friendly and helped contribute to a relaxing atmosphere in what in many respects is a stressful day.
But what we most appreciate about Joyce and Randy are the wonderful and artistic images that they captured on our wedding day. We will be able to enjoy these with family and friends for many years to come.
Abbie and I believe that Joyce and Randy elevate themselves above other photographers primarily because they take the time to develop friendships with their subjects, and in so doing feed their already formidable instincts. By the time our wedding day arrived, we had already met with Joyce and Randy on several occasions and were ready to place our full trust in them to capture something beyond the rote and posed -- to capture the fleeting and illusive, treasured moments that are all-too-easily missed in the hectic excitement of a wedding. We were rewarded with photo after photo – from candid, intimate close-ups to light-hearted group shots – that repeatedly displayed their knack for anticipating, recognizing and capturing prized and poignant moments with candor and clarity. Furthermore, Randy and Joyce always seemed to be positioned for great shots while maintaining an unobtrusive presence throughout the proceedings. We would highly recommend Joyce and Randy to anyone interested in seeking more of the same!
Refined creative photography. Both Joyce and Randy are very good to work with, relaxed and professional.
