    Phenomenal Photographer & Company

    TWA was fantastic to work with!! We decided to get married very quickly due to my mom's health and had a very small, intimate ceremony. With it happening so quickly and differently, Jamie helped tremendously in figuring out the appropriate pricing, timeline, etc. I was so grateful for her assistance and kindness. She then put me in contact with our photographer, Jerry A, and he was absolutely incredible. He had me laughing and at ease the first time we talked and went out of his way the day of. I wanted someone who could simply just pose us and take our pictures, and he went above and beyond. He found and took the sweetest, most thoughtful shots, and had us all genuinely laughing. He arrived extra early and stayed longer than expected, and just kept us laughing and smiling. I haven't even seen the photos yet and truly cannot wait to see what magic he captured. We will be requesting him again to use in our future celebration with family and friends!

    Highly Recommend

    I used TWA for both photo and video. I met TWA at a bridal expo and LOVED the Bon A Vie album design. It turned out a friend of mine used them for her wedding so that helped me confirm I should go with them. We had 2 photographers the day of, and both were great. The lead photographer, Jerry, was with me (bride) all day, and he was hilarious. Loved him. He was early and stayed with us all 12 hours (as we wanted him to capture our send off). I had so many compliments on him. Our other photographer, Chris, was also great and was with the guys for the morning. We only had him for 5 hours as we wanted to be able to capture both our reactions at the ceremony. We just ordered our album so I can't comment on that right now, but I am confident it will turn out great. We were only given 2 weeks from our photo "reveal meeting" to place our album order, which was challenging with a full-time job and the time of year that it was is very busy for us, but I learned later that if I had asked for a reasonable extension, I would've gotten it, so if that's a concern for you ask upfront about the time you can be given. Aside from that, I have zero complaints and I do highly recommend using TWA. Our highlight video turned out AMAZING! Our cinematographer, Kathy, captured all of the important moments of the day, and they condensed everything into 8 minutes perfectly! They were responsive throughout the entire process and have skilled photographers and cinematographers that took some amazing photos and videos of us!

I have personally had the pleasure of doing makeup at a wedding that TWA Photo was photographing and we had such a blast together. The bride's photographer, Jorge, had a wonderful personality, was very professional, and took absolutely beautiful photos. I would definitely recommend TWA Photo to anyone looking for perfect photos of their next event.
