Best photographer duo!

When I met Bryan and Rue it was at a wedding expo. I was on the hunt for finding the perfect photographer duo to capture our special day. When choosing my vendors I wanted to find those who were more passion focused on their work and not cut and dry business only. Without reading any reviews I simply got to know this husband and wife duo, looked at all their work and realized I found two people that are extremely passionate about the work they do and I may have just found the missing link for our big day. These two have infectious personalities and are you official hype team from beginning to end. The quality and quantity of photos they provided allow us to relive our wedding over and over again. The best part about having these two is they take the time to get to know you prior to your wedding, have multiple check ins, assist with your timeline, throw your your own photo reveal party, and assist you in creating your album. I will forever keep these two in mind when we need yearly family photos done! If you are on the fence, choose Bryan and Rue. We are forever grateful for the work these two put in to capture our wedding.

Highly recommend!!

We would highly recommend Eight Hands Photography. They take the time to get to know you as a couple and were the best to have by our sides on our wedding day. They went above and beyond in keeping us on schedule and really made sure we got the pictures we wanted on our wedding day. They arranged a few meetings throughout the wedding planning process to get to know you. By the time our wedding day came we felt like we had our friends by our side, not just another vendor we weren’t too familiar with. Rue & Bryan are both really personable individuals and so easy to get along with - we received so many compliments from family and friends on how friendly and professional they were. They are both extremely talented individuals and their passion for photography and videography really shows in their work. Our engagement photos, wedding photos, and videography all exceeded our expectations and then some!

The absolute best!

Eight Hands Photography is the absolute best! Rue photographed our wedding and she was wonderful. She was so sweet and made the whole experience so fun! She was very responsive every time I reached out. I was blown away by the quick turnaround time! It was incredibly hot and humid on our wedding day and Rue somehow managed to make the photos look amazing! You would never know we were sweating our booties off! I cannot say enough good things about Eight Hands! 1000% recommend. I’m completely obsessed with our photos!!
