Where do I even begin with this review, all the while doing Brett (and Marcus), and the team of Making the Moment justice?! It is almost impossible. There is a reason they have a perfect rating, almost across the board!

Picking Brett was the BEST wedding decision we made. He was chosen, first and foremost, for the comfort and ease he offered my FI (now husband) and myself at the time of our first meeting. The personality, and friendliness was very uplifting. An added benefit was the 'all or nothing' package they offer. When he says he will spend as much time with us as we need him too, and will travel back and forth to get all the pictures we want, he means it!

In between booking him, and our wedding date, communication was quick, their online tools were easy to navigate, the engagement pictures were flawless, and Brett always seemed excited for May 3rd to come!

The day of, with Brett and Marcus, exceeded the excitement, and anticipation we had in choosing this photographer. They were fun, they were comfortable (because it CAN be difficult having a camera in your face for hours :)), they were professional, and I know they created art in our photos that will have us remembering the happiest days of our lives. Not to mention, they also got to know all bridal party members by name (15 of us total), and made them instantly comfortable as well.

As the Bride, I never would have guessed that a photographer would calm my anxiety, and yet, they did by their compliments, and their laid back personalities. We cannot wait to see the final product, but I can safely write this perfect review without seeing the pictures.

Making the Moment will be recommended by me for many, many years to come!!

Jill!!! I love you guys - it was so much fun! We had a blast at your wedding day. I remember when you asked me to be your photographer - I think you and Jake had just left the office and you told me that right after he walked out the door he looked at you and said "that's the guy". I have always loved that - it stuck in my head and made me feel valued and known from day one with you two.

I loved the emotion and comfort of your day. It felt like we were all old buddies - your sister Shanna made me laugh so hard with her photo-bombing, and Nicole and I became buddies throughout the night. Seriously - everyone in your bridal party was amazing - but I know you two surround yourself with good peeps.

I'm freaking dying for you two to come in for your image premier - you're going to FLIP over the city scape image - and the one with the mirrors we pulled off? GAAAHHH! Awesome.

Can't wait - I miss you guys already!
