Reversed Lens Photography
Will and Emma made an excellent team for our wedding and really listened to the shots that we wanted. Since we were planning our wedding from a distance, it was extremely helpful that they were timely in getting back to us, as well as flexible! When we had a question, they would always answer us quickly, whether in the office or at home! They were also able to see the ordinary with a creative eye! They were both extremely professional and personable. They made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera! I would absolutely recommend them for great event memories!
From looking at our wedding photos, one could hardly tell that the jam-packed, three-day affair was arranged in merely six weeks. On the second night of festivities, while waiting to make my grand entrance, I was pondering how much we'd accomplished. Everything looked just perfect. Only the lovely Portland weather couldn't decide if it wanted to rain or not. I looked out the window to see Will put down his camera to haul tables in out of the drizzle, only to pull them back out from the tent moments later, when the sky cleared up. Will, Em, and the rest of the Reversed Lens Photography crew, will not only capture your special moments in an artful way, they are thoughtful, quick on their feet, highly intuitive, and politely persuasive. With really no guidance at all, they discerned every important Indian tradition to capture, determined which ginormous gaggle of people comprised my family and inner circle and beautifully photographed all of them including my dog. They made my photos a treasure. For a special event, they seriously warrant your consideration.
RLP was our first choice for photographers. We liked their work, but were unable to come up with a price that seemed reasonable. The prints cost WAY more than we were willing to pay (especially knowing how much prints ACTUALLY cost.) We ended up losing our deposit, as we didn’t end up feeling confident in them or their costs. We also wouldn’t actually have proofs without waiting for several years, or pay a huge amount for them to do the prints. Though their work was very lovely, it wasn’t going to fit our budget.
RLP takes pretty good pictures, but their customer service skills are a bit lacking. They charge a reasonable price, but their packages do not include books or prints. And a CD of the digital images is a lot extra. Their attitude at the wedding was sub par. They complained to my husband about things out of our control during the reception. Also they complained when my mom wanted a group photo of her family. They made us feel bad for asking for the digital files. We were very upfront saying we only wanted the digital images on a CD and that we wouldn’t be purchasing a book or prints from them. When we went for our viewing, they complained about things from the wedding again. We almost walked out of the meeting. They have no tact. We haven’t received our CD of images yet. We had great experiences with them until the actually wedding. We aren’t sure what happened or where it went wrong, but we would never recommend them to our family or friends. Its unfortunate because they are talented people. They just need to learn how to interact with customers/clients on a better level.
Not enough can be said about Will and Emma and their work. Just because someone has a really cool camera isn't the reason to hire a photographer. What Reversed Lens Photography brings to the table is their years of experience, their attention to detail, and their ability to be a part of the moment, and accurately capture it for a memory. It takes the right light, the right setting, and the right moment to make a great picture, and Reversed Lens Photography has been capturing those moments for years.
All you have to do is look at their work, and you know that you have made the right choice when you have Will and Emma photograph your wedding. I highly recommend Will and Emma from Reversed Lens Photography.
Emma and Will are not only extremely talented photographers, but absolutely wonderful to work with! Last summer I worked a wedding with them at the beach and was blown away by the images! I highly recommend working with Reversed Lens Photography! They take time to truly get to know their clients and it shows in their images!
RLP Studios specializes in translating the emotion and connection of life's moments into heirloom-quality art. It's such an amazing privilege to be a part of that, to share the most important moments of a lifetime.
Our style is fresh, unique, whimsical, and expressive. We see moments you've been planning down to the last detail as well as the completely unrehearsed moments that make your wedding celebration special-- capturing the beauty and joy of your first moments as husband and wife, the playful banter of attendant revelry, the flower girl as she's laughing with glee, the pensive father before he gives his daughter away. Wherever your love takes you, we'll be there with fresh eyes.

Our studio is headed by us: us being Will and Emma, a husband/wife team. We've been creative partners for over a decade and bring that dynamic sense to every moment we capture. Neither of us is the "principle" photographer because we're artistic equals. We were art photographers long before we began photographing moving subjects and we still see life through a lens that hones in on details, subtleties, and the finer movements of love.
Part of that attention to detail includes how we relate to our couples. We get to know you-- the real you, not just the one that smiles for the camera. All of our packages include engagement sessions (which often begin with drinks or happy hour before-hand) and consultations throughout your engagement so that we can be sure to capture your vision and not just the one in our viewfinders.
