LOVE THEM! All of them! They are amazing and so easy to work with. I work with a lot of photographers, mostly fashion and commercial photographers, but the Le Cape crew are just amazing people to work with. Vicky was the main person I’ve been in touch with throughout this entire wedding planning process and she was just a gem. She’s responsive in emails. She helped with the process. Any questions or concerns I had, she addressed them and eased my mind about them. I asked for one to two pictures two weeks after the wedding, so I could choose one for my thank you cards, and she gave me more than I expected. On the wedding day, they paid attention to the timeline, I think everything went as smoothly as it was meant to be. Sure there were some hiccups in the morning, but they helped me tweak the timeline into turning it into something better. One thing I wished we had done was take more group photos, but that was my bad for not informing them of my plans beforehand. So, if you want a certain type of shot, be sure to tell them way ahead, so they can remember to do it for you. And I am positive they would because they are the type of people who would help your wedding day go just as you pictured it to go.
As for their slow motion booth, it was the best decision I ever made. Photo booths are great and all, but I feel like it’s been overdone, and videos not only capture the moment, you can relive the experience. It was fun looking over all the videos after the wedding to see just how much fun my guests had at the wedding. I absolutely LOVED the trailer for our slow motion booth videos, it was hilarious! The team manned the booth and they had some pretty epic ideas. One in particular where they caught my exact expression for when my husband jumped out in an inflatable dinosaur. It was ridiculous, I had no idea it was him and the slow motion video was priceless. A slow motion booth is worth it at your next event.

Vicky and Jon AKA "Le Cape" were amazing to work with to say the least. Our wedding was in Fontana, WI and they did not hesitate to make the trip up from Chicago to do our wedding photography. We searched for awhile for a photographer, and after taking one look at their portfolio on their website, we knew they were the ones for us. It's obvious that they do excellent work and it looks very high end. On our wedding day, they were both extremely nice and great to work with. They gave us great directions on posing and were able to capture scenes very beautifully and creatively. This is not your standard wedding photography and their product speaks for itself. On the day of the wedding, Vicky and Jon quickly posted about 5 of our photos to their instagram account. We were so pumped that they did that so we had quick access to a few great shots that we could share after the big day. We eagerly await our final edited photos, but have no doubt that they will be fantastic. Their pricing may be higher than some other photographers, but they were definitely well worth it! Without a doubt, we would recommend Le Cape Weddings.

The whole Le Cape Team was amazing to work with. When we met with Jon, we knew right away his work and talent is what we were looking for in our cinematographers. Jenifer was very helpful and quick to respond during the preparation process. They team was very punctual on the wedding day and was a pleasure to work with. They had a lot of fun with our crazy bridal party and made the day so enjoyable. Our same day edit was AMAZING! Our family and friends were really impressed and within a few days it already had over 6,000 views! We cannot wait to see the final product! We would highly recommend Le Cape Weddings to anyone looking for a unique and creative wedding film to capture their special day!
