Defining Studios was the best! Roger and Heather were so much fun and so easy to work with. They were very organized, creating a timeline with us for the day of the wedding. They also helped us stay on track so we didn't forget to take the pictures we wanted. So many of our guests commented on how personable and funny they were, and one of our friends already wants to hire them for her wedding! They are very talented at what they do, we love the preliminary photos from our wedding! You'd be hard pressed to find better photographers, I'd recommend them for any occasion.

Roger and Heather were wonderful to work with. From the first meeting, to the engagement shoot, to the meetings before and to the day of, they were professional yet friendly and made us very comfortable. The day of the wedding they made sure to get the pictures we wanted efficiently so parents and grandparents didn't have to wait around after the ceremony. They made an effort to remember the names of the bridal party and family which helped immensely when organizing people in photos. We never had to wait on them as they were always available for some of the more candid shots that randomly came up as the day went on. We have had multiple complements from family and friends about how much fun Roger was at the reception. He got along well with all of our guests and made sure that he got the pictures we wanted without ruining the experience of the wedding. The pictures turned out beautifully and our families especially were happy with having access to some of the photos so quickly after the event.
