Fun, talented, and professional!
I would absolutely recommend Eye Connoisseur to anyone who is looking for high-quality wedding photos. Andre and Irene are a great team who know their stuff. Not only are they friendly and professional, but they're a lot of fun to work with too! Throughout our relationship they were very communicative and were always easy to get in contact with. I can't thank them enough for the beautiful wedding and engagement photos that they provided us!Sent on 08/04/2020

Your photos with Eye Connoisseur may be the sexiest you’ll ever look while fully clothed
My fiancée Rebecca and I recently had the pleasure of taking our engagement photos in November 2020 with Andre and Irene of Eye Connoisseur. We selected them after attending the Arden Hills vendor open house earlier this year after they expressed their interest in photographing our wedding. “You two look like models; it’s not often we get to take pictures of a tall, beautiful, mixed couple.” Needless to say, we were flattered, especially after seeing the quality of their work at their display booth. It set the standard for us, and they were the first vendor that we booked for our wedding. For me, photography is a fun hobby and a passion, and you can tell it’s the same for Andre and Irene, but with that much-needed professional touch; they take their work seriously, and it shows. Everyone is facing a lot of uncertainty this year and we were no different; our wedding was originally set for November, but our decision to postpone to next year pushed our planned summer engagement shoot into the late fall, which meant we had to be very mindful of the time of day and take the lighting conditions into account. Over the last few months Andre and Irene have been understanding, flexible, and gracious in changing our wedding/reception day, and helping us select the best day for our session in Downtown Sacramento near the Capitol, keeping a close eye on the ever-changing weather forecast, keeping us in the loop, and selecting the best locations to take pictures.
Andre treats you like a professional model. He will set the scene, place you in it, and make even the most ordinary places look other-worldly. One set of pictures that we took in a small cactus garden ended up looking like we were in the Arizona desert. He takes a very hands-on, targeted approach in directing couples for photoshoots, which I am personally not used to, but it was just what Rebecca needed. She’s not used to being the center of attention and rarely likes how she looks in pictures, but Andre’s clear vision and direction helped her to feel more comfortable, and most importantly, confident about what she was doing, and how she would look. She’s always beautiful to me, but of course I’m biased, so for her to be able to see herself as I see her, especially from an outside lens, was as important to me as it was to her. Andre has a knack for capturing those key moments; other photographers might rely on taking rapid bursts of photos in continuous mode and picking the best one out of 5, but you could tell Andre knew exactly what he was looking for, how to get it out of us, and to capture it exactly as he envisioned. He takes one shot at a time, and checks it right after to make sure the focus, exposure, everything is right for the location and time of day, with Irene in tow keeping track of all the gear and making sure he doesn’t accidentally walk back into the middle of the street. There were some occasions when I was looking right into Rebecca’s eyes, expecting to hear those clicks that would capture you in what you think is one of those moments, but once you remember to focus on how in love you are with each other, Andre is able to take care of the rest and capture those very real moments where you’re partially posing, but genuinely expressing your feelings. There were times that we got so into the hugging, kissing, smiling, loving... that we forgot they were there. We had a lot of fun that day, and them being a couple themselves, they had no issues capturing our mutual joy. Our only regret is that we were unable to have dinner together afterward as they usually do with their couples.
Our wedding day is still a few months away (and hopefully not more than a few!) but after seeing the results of our engagement photoshoot, we’re confident and excited that Andre and Irene will be the ones to capture us when we’re all dressed up for our special day.
TL;DR: Your photos with Eye Connoisseur may be the sexiest you’ll ever look while fully clothed. Review of wedding photos to follow soon.Sent on 12/12/2020

Andre and Irene are the best! I'm a very awkward person when taking photos but they were able to help me climb out of my shell and feel comfortable during our engagement shoot & specially during the big day! The weather was a little wet (just rained) but they were able to work around the weather & still made it work! Don't even get me started on the wedding album! So beautiful!! My husband and I couldn't be any happier.Sent on 11/14/2020
