Perceptions Photography was everything we had hoped for!
August 2019Sent on 09/08/2019
Sandy Aldieri and Mark Brendel at Perceptions Photography are the wedding photographers who we had dreamed of having for our wedding day. Searching for a wedding photographer can be very overwhelming and time consuming, but once we came across Perceptions Photography on wedding wire and began reading the reviews and looking at the work that Sandy had done for couples we immediately reached out. From the start of first reaching out and her wanting to setup a phone conference, I knew that she was someone who is passionate about her work and takes her business seriously. Sandy is down to earth and really takes the time to get to know you before discussing the business aspect of hiring a photographer.
Compared to other photographers we had met with, Sandy immediately came across as a kind, understanding and down to earth person. Her attitude and hard work ethic was exactly what we were looking for. Talking with other photographers was very business like and they lacked the personable demeanor that we encountered immediately with Sandy. She made us feel comfortable, stress free and most importantly, happy! After meeting with her in person and talking many times on the phone, we had finally found the right person and we were beyond grateful for having her be a part of our day!
We met with Sandy months in advance and her detailed timeline template and questionnaire made it so easy for us to plan our big day from start to finish. We ended up using her timeline as the structure for our whole day from the “getting ready” to the reception and everything in between. This helped us be on time throughout the whole day, which is unheard of! Sandy and Mark were so organized and paid attention to every detail and made sure to capture them on camera.
The professionalism and experience they showed is seen throughout every photo we have received. The formal photos and candid shots at St. Rocco’s Church and at the Rhode Island State House are absolutely stunning, it is truly surreal. As a couple who does not like photos or attention on us, Sandy made the process stress free and we were able to just be us. She took the lead on having us pose in certain positions that ended up being some of our favorite photos. It’s amazing to look at your wedding photos and say wow, is that really me?
Sandy and Mark did a phenomenal job of capturing every special moment that day. Their experience and professionalism throughout the day was helpful to not only us, but also for our family members, bridal party and other vendors they worked with. They were on time and easy to rely on for every place we needed them to be. Sandy and Mark were very flexible in being at certain locations. They were able to capture both the girls and guys getting ready at the Providence Marriott Downtown and were willing to get pictures on the trolly before heading to the church. Sandy caters to her customers needs and was able to follow us to multiple locations; the church for the ceremony, the Rhode Island State House for pictures outside, and then back to the reception at the Marriott. They found the perfect locations on the State House grounds to snap photos and we just followed their lead! The lighting and cameras they used took the best photos that we could have asked for and are beyond grateful for every photo coming out perfect. They took their time and did retakes if it was needed so that they could get the perfect shot. They took charge of telling family and friends what to do, where to look and even to get out of the way when needed. This took off so much pressure and stress from us! Sandy was so great with the kids in the bridal party with getting them to smile and laugh when they weren’t really feeling like taking any photos. We are so grateful for her patience and ability to do that!
Sandy and Mark were such an important part of our wedding day and we will cherish the work that they have done forever. Viewing the sneak peek photos the day after the wedding was so amazing, we greatly appreciated seeing them that soon. We even got to view all of our photos only a few weeks after our wedding and select the photos for our album. Sandy has reached out multiple times to us just to say hi and meet up and we have truly made a friend. Her compassion and dedication towards her work is not something you see very often. We are so grateful for hiring her and you’d be making a mistake in not doing so. We have received compliments from family and friends at how amazing our photographers were that day and how awesome our photos are. Our videographer and the staff at the Marriott stated what a pleasure it was to work with them and how easy they were to work with.
In the days and weeks that follow your wedding day, you can end up feeling sad that all that fun and excitement from the day is over. However, looking back at the photos that Sandy and Mark took, we immediately feel all the fun and happiness of that day every time we look at them. We are able to cherish all the memories of our wedding day from our photos by Perceptions Photography.

You not only extended such sincere and genuine gratitude but you spent a lot of time and thought into what you provided in your review.
