Choosing Elmtree as our photographers/videographers was one the wisest wedding decisions we made. Christian and Robert are not only masters of their craft, with the kind of artistic eyes that produced some truly beautiful shots, but also have the patience, responsiveness and general attitudes you want in the people you’re going to be collaborating with on one of the most important days in your life. Their flexibility in coming down to Manhattan for our engagement shoot was also greatly appreciated. After the several meet-ups and frequent email threads to bounce ideas off each other, by the time our wedding day came it felt like old friends were shooting it. The team they brought the day of to assist them were also excellent and great to work with. If you’re getting married in the capital region, or even beyond, you can not beat Elmtree!Sent on 10/07/2019

Easy to work with, amazing photos
Christian was always quick to respond and we got our wedding photos back much faster than expected. I really appreciate that he was willing to customize a package for us so that we could work within our budget and not feel pressured. We're going through our photos now and I love all these 'little moments' he captured that I wasn't even aware of that day!Sent on 07/07/2019
