Photos are unique, creative, and natural-looking. FoundLight made it easy and fun!
We cannot say enough about Alain and his team (Laura and AJ) at Found Light. We are absolutely thrilled with our photos – maybe “obsessed” is a better term! Alain is truly talented and has a special eye for composing photos. His ability to create unique and natural poses with any sort of background is truly remarkable. My husband and I tend to look awkward when photographed together, but none of Alain’s photos looked cheesy or posed. We love that he was able to capture so many sweet moments without making them look forced. He is so easy-going and reassuring, and it put us both at ease. What could’ve been a stressful day was a ton of fun for us.
From start to finish, Alain made everything so easy. He presented us with all our options and guided us through the process. We also loved that he wasn’t pushy – we could tell that his goal was truly to make our day special and memorable. Since our wedding was in November and the weather could be hit or miss, we had no idea where we should go for photos. We met with Alain and Laura, and they had great suggestions for both the timeline and locations. We followed their recommendations and could not have been happier!! They suggested places we would never have thought of on our own, so we were grateful for their expertise.
On the day of our wedding, I had planned to have us take a taxi to the various locations, but it ended up being so cold out that we weren’t too keen on the idea of waiting for a taxi as we went from place to place. Alain worked with the hotel behind the scenes and arranged for a black car to drive us (for no more than it would’ve cost us to get multiple cabs!) He made it SO easy – all we had to do was show up, and everything else was taken care of! Alain and AJ did this set of photos together, and they were incredible as a team. We get so many compliments on the beauty and creativity of these photos!
We also LOVE the photos from our ceremony and reception. They captured so many special moments and candid smiles. There were moments caught on camera that we didn’t even know had happened, so it has been a ton of fun looking through the photos and re-creating the night.
I would highly recommend Alain and his team at Found Light, and will definitely use them again myself in the future for any other big life events!Sent on 01/13/2019

I don't even know where to begin... let's start with, if you're on the search for your wedding photographer, your search ends here. Working with Alain at Found Light Studios was nothing short of amazing; I've obviously never had a wedding photographer before and I couldn't have asked or hoped for a better experience. From the start, we met with Alain and knew that he would be our perfect photographer. He got to really know us so that we would feel as comfortable as possible on our Big Day. I was very nervous since I've never really had my picture taken before, but I could not have felt more comfortable. He is extremely professional and is wonderful at his art, but at the same time, he is so personable and easy to be friends with, making the entire experience that much more excellent. I hear of people who meet their wedding photographer on their actual wedding day... I CANNOT imagine that! It was very special how important it was to Alain to really get to know us, so that he could be the best photographer for us. On Wedding Day, our photographers arrived on time and we were excited to see them, knowing that great photos would be taken and we were already friendly and comfortable.... although my wedding was only a month ago, we've already received the photos and they are absolutely stunning. People keep asking me which ones are my favorite, and to narrow down my "favorite" to even 100 would be impossible. So many beautiful moments were captured from our special day, I could not be more thankful and happy that we chose Found Light Studios. Alain & AJ were absolutely perfect, and I could not recommend them enough. I am so happy with how our photos turned out and how the experience went the entire time. Photos will be the vital part in keeping our wedding memories alive throughout our years together, and I can't wait for the day many, many years down the line when we're old grandparents and our family can sit together enjoying the beautiful, perfectly precious moments thSent on 09/17/2018

it was great!!
We would definitely recommend Found light studios for your wedding day! Alain was professional, personal and did a wonderful job capturing all the important aspects of our wedding day. The price was also reasonable and we received a beautiful album with way more pictures than we expected that were all laid out beautifully. Alain does a great job making you feel comfortable and it feels like one of your good friends is taking your pictures. We would definitely recommend Alain and AJ if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding day!Sent on 10/26/2018
