r3mg:: creative boutique
Mark and the rest of the R3MG group rock! They are very responsive to any questions and concerns you may have, and are very easy to work with. When Mark shot our wedding, it was more like a friend taking (super-duper high-quality, aesthetically pleasing) photos. I have been also told by some people that they're quite easy on the eyes too.
The photo booth at our reception was the star of the night. Mark told us that their photo booths are dance floor killers (since they're so much fun!), and he wasn't kidding. With all the hats, glasses, wigs, and other random accessories, the combinations were endless (much like those new touchscreen soda pop machines, only healthier!).
The only way to have a have a great party is to hire these guys for photos and also have a booth. We had a great time, and will recommend them to any family or friends that will be having photographer/photo booth-appropriate parties.
You can tell that the people in this company take pride in what they do, and it shows in their services and products.
This family-owned business is a gem that we were happy to find. We're very thankful that we picked them to share our wedding day.
Outstanding company and people. They did our engagement photos and invitations. Along with the wedding in June of 2013. Amazing!
Mark and AJ worked with us very well. They came early, and both took shots. We asked them to photograph an evening ceremony without using a flash, which is not easy. The pictures turned out amazing.
We enjoyed this whole experience. You guys made it stress free and delivered great pictures. Thank you
Mark was a great photographer! We love all of our pictures and would highly recommend him to others.
I have had an amazing experience working with R3MG Creative Boutique. Mark was beyond accommodating before the wedding getting to know myself and my husband and what kind of shots we are looking to get the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Mark and AJ were there capturing the excitement and anticipation we all felt. Mark and AJ made us feel at ease, comfortable, and less nervous to truly let the magic of the wedding shine through. And the quality of work is seen in the photographs. They were quick to get the pictures up and available and I have not stopped receiving incredible compliments on them. I sometimes look at the pictures and I am still in shock and awe of their beauty. I could not have asked for a better photographer to keep those memories forever. I would (and have) recommended this company to everyone I know.
r3mg was such a great vendor to work with on both the photography and paper portion of our wedding. Both Brooke and Mark are extremely patient and allowed are vision to come to fruition. You will not be disappointed with the final product. Our invitations and final photos are still to this day my favorite keepsakes from our special today. The personalization and effort both these individuals put into their craft is something you wont find regularly in the Chicago wedding vendor market. A++++++
Great job ! Highly recommend r3mg
everything was exactly as I expected and better. The photobooth was even BETTER than I had anticipated and my guests really enjoyed it. We have tons of memories in the pictures!
Mark and AJ were my photographers and they went above and beyond for my wedding! I could of not asked for better photographers. very reasonable price and very friendly! You will not be disappointed with either of them. I still have people telling me what a great job they did and i definitly will cherish all of my photos that they took forever. when getting married i believe your pictures are one of the most important thing you will have from your wedding because they are memories of the most important day of your life. Thanks again m3g for all your hard work and dedication! Also you get your pictures back very quick.
My original photographer broke his arm less than 2 weeks before our wedding... lucky for us, he recommended Mark at R3mg who was actually available at the last minute. I didn't have a chance to meet with him prior to the wedding as I live in Boston and he's in Chicago, but we spoke on the phone and I immediately felt confident that he'd do a great job.
When Mark arrived at the hotel he got to work right away shooting pictures of the venue, my bridal party, family and everything else. Mark was like a ninja with his camera! He got lots of great shots, but we never noticed he was there. He made sure that we got all of the photos we wanted (group shots, etc) and he was there to get all of the big moments (cake cutting, first dances, etc). Mark was so laid back and very cool to work with throughout the wedding.
The day after our wedding he already had a great picture of us up on his Facebook site! It was so cool to be able to share that picture right away with friends and family who could not make it. Within the next week I got an email from him with our online gallery of all the edited photos. They are awesome! Considering we didn't initially know Mark or his work, he really stepped in and saved the day. We are so happy with how everything turned out.
Brooke at r3mg did the most amazing job on my invitations!! I looked all over for months for the invitations I was picturing for my day and couldn't find anything. I found Brooke and r3mg at a bridal show and thought i'd give it a shot. I couldn't believe what she came up with!! She made the invitation process so easy! I did find out that you will pay a pretty penny for custom invitations, but I wouldn't have done it differently, they came out exactly how I wanted them to! Brooke was very easy to work with and did as much as she could to help us stay in our budget! Thank you r3mg, I would definitely use this company again for custom invitations/annoucements when i need them!!
I first met Brooke at a Bridal show and instantly fell in love with their work. Once we met outside of the show to discuss invitations and photography, I knew I needed them to be part of our special day! Their work is amazing and their personalities and professionalism is even better! They have gone above and beyond for us. We have gotten so many compliments on our engagement photos and being around them is like being around family. Brooke will be doing our wedding invitations and Mark will be photographing our wedding. We are truly blessed to have met such artistic and creative people to be part of our day. Everything that my fiance and I have envisioned in our heads, they have created with not a beat missed. Truly grateful for them and they will be in our lives for years to come. I cannot say enough good things about their work and them!!!!!!!!
The group at r3mg was by far the best group you could possibly work with. The quality of their work is top notch and I would highly recommend them to anybody. The group is not only professional and incredibly talented, but they are great all around people that were amazing to have. We were lucky to have them as part of our big day and would absolutely recommend them to anybody in the Chicago area.
R3MG did a beautiful job on our invitations. Brooke was extremely easy to work with and she truly listened to what I wanted and provided ideas and suggestions she thought would fit my style. She designed our invitations just the way I imagined them. Also, there was a change in plans and we needed to notify all 250 of our guests and she took control and was very prompt on getting the notices out. (And they matched our invites) It was one less thing I had to worry about. Everyone at R3mg was extremely helpful, they are very friendly and make you feel comfortable. I will definitely use their services again and again when the opportunity arises.
We enjoyed working with this "up and coming" business. The final products we received from both the photography and paper departments were amazing. Mark is truly talented and he and AJ captured some of our most treasured, personal moments of our wedding day!
r3mg was great to work with, they responded immediately to questions and were very helpful. They were able to create paper products that fit the mood and theme of our wedding, overall it was a wonderful experience working with them!
Brooke- I am sorry that the procrastination demon has taken a hold of me!
I ran into Brooke of R3MG at a wedding show and I was immediately taken by her warm, caring personality and the quality of the work displayed. I did not think that my budget would support invitations of this style and magnitude but after pricing something uglier and of lesser quality for the same price; my decision was made for me!
Brooke, offers among her many services, concierge wedding invitation designs. She met with me and my spouse at our home and brought a variety of hand assembled invitations for our review. She listened to my thoughts on color scheme and artwork and eventually created a design for us. When we received or proofs in the mail, they were created in a variety of stocks and envelope combinations so we could decide exactly what worked for us stylistically and financially. I received so many compliments and I have recommened her work repeatedly. Additionally, for all you OPRFHS graduates, her spouse is an alumn!
thank you again.
EVERYONE at r3mg went out of their way to make our day memorable. They made every effort to accomidate our wishes and succeeded at every turn. Our wedding celebration was by far the greatest night of my life and I am reminded of that every time that I see one of Marks wonderful pictures.
The photos turned out amazing, and I gladly recommend your company to any one!
R3MG photographers left me with beautiful memories of my wedding day. They did an outstanding job considering the terrible weather we had. They made my small intimate wedding seem so big & magical. I would recommend them to anyone!
