    The BEST Wedding Decision We Made

    One of the BEST decisions my husband and I made for our wedding was deciding to work with Making the Moment for our photo and video needs. Since day one, we were completely sold on the work that this team of talented artistic professionals create. I’m definitely one to do my research, and after reviewing a number of portfolios, nothing quite compared to their awesome imagery.
    Not only is their work stunning, but their communication and overall support is fantastic – the pre-planning and absolute attention to detail gained our complete trust, which on your wedding day, is an invaluable piece of mind. Brett as Creative Lead / Primary Photographer kept to the timeline we had worked together on and very efficiently directed our party and made quick adjustments for day-of requests. Anna as Cinema Lead along with the help of 3 other team member, I’m sure caught all of the best footage (we can’t wait to see it all!!). Both Brett and Anna were professional, kind and best of all, FUN. Photo capture can be a big portion of the day, and they kept things moving smoothly and allowed us the freedom to laugh and be candid with our party.
    Big shout out to Amber as well who teamed with Anna on our engagement session. She has a natural talent for keeping things casual and capturing real personality.
    Overall, Making the Moment is the best. You cannot go back and “redo” the wedding day, so trusting that you’ve got a great team, giving you their full attention and bringing years of experience and creative vision, is very important. I cannot thank them enough.

    We can't say enough!

    We hired MTM photography and film for our April 2021 wedding. I truly can't say enough about Sara and Anna who we worked with. From the start, we immediately felt comfortable with them. They are artistic and creative, and the images and film finished products we received absolutely blew away any of our expectations. I know some people say they are hesitant to have a film of their wedding day, but if you book with MTM you will NOT regret it. As far as images go, the creativity throughout is something you don't see with a "typical" wedding photographer. They are more like works of art. MTM is 100% worth the investment! Plus you'll get to meet really cool people, who will feel more like friends at the end of the day :)

    Making the Moment's reply:

    Brittney, from the moment we met, to your Premier, our team has experienced nothing but joy with you and Blaine. Thank you for taking the time to write a kind review. We always want our couples to feel comfortable and confident with us, and we felt this way with you! We loved capturing and creating your artwork for you and hope to work with you again in the future. Much Love!
