Excellent work and lovely people - we highly recommend Warm Up Lab!
We feel so lucky to have found Warm Up Lab - Roge and Fernando - to shoot our wedding. They are incredible and their work truly told our story. We will cherish the memories they captured forever and highly recommend them to other couples.
First, the quality of their work is excellent. We were drawn to their photo-journalistic style and ability to capture beautiful, unique moments -- the big ones as well as the small, behind-the-scenes moments you could easily have missed. The couples' photos and first-look shots are stunning - between Fernando's incredible artistic skill and Roge's creative eye, we have an amazing collection showing our love and excitement on our wedding day. Roge did an amazing job coordinating our large wedding party and families into gorgeous group shots that feel spontaneous and lively. Our wedding venue was somewhat small and quite full to capacity -- despite this, they captured everything beautifully -- the intimate hugs, the bumping dance floor, the dinner conversations and laughter. Looking back at our photos, we can truly relive each moment of the day.
Beyond the excellent quality of their work, they are the loveliest people to work with, putting us at ease throughout the process. When we first met them, we were struck by how warm and easy to be with they are. Roge met with us before the day to walk through our photo locations and timeline which was incredibly helpful to make us feel comfortable with the process. We really appreciated the time she spent with us on this step, as it helped us visualize how everything would go down and feel less stressed. On our wedding day, she reminded us to breathe and stay in the moment -- an important and very much appreciated reminder! We are so happy they were part of our day.
Finally - they are so fast! They sent us our "sneak peek" link of incredible photos the very next day which we absolutely loved, and finished photos within a month of our wedding. Being able to relive these moments while we are still feeling the energy of that incredible day has been so much fun. Without hesitation, we highly recommend Warm Up Lab!

We hired this fantastic duo for our October 7, 2018 wedding. My husband (yay) & I were looking for photographers that captured authentic moments, interesting shots and most importantly would not produce your run of the mill stiff, unnatural posed shots. Roge & Fernando exceeded our expectations!!! We met with them a year prior to our wedding to go over our vision. They even met with us 3 months prior at our venue to scout the location.
Roge is organized, friendly and full of great ideas. Fernando has the eye of a photography god. That truly left us wondering how in the world did he get that shot and WOW I look amazing !!
They are great to work with, communicated every step of the way and truly felt like complete allies in making our special day SPECIAL! We would hire them again and again!
Thank you guys for all the love & beautiful photos!

An incredibly gifted duo who captured our day perfectly.
Fernando and Roge are documentary photographers whose photos told the story of our day in a way that went beyond our expectations. They captured beautiful personal moments between our guests and managed to get up close, but in a way that never felt intrusive. In a short time, they engendered a great deal of trust - this reflects in the intimate nature of all the portraits and how at ease our guests felt with them. As a couple they respected all our wishes and boundaries, and we were deeply moved when we received all our pictures. You don’t get to participate in many things that happen at your own wedding day, but through their work we got to experience them. Thank you Roge and Fernando, we are so thankful life brought you both our way.
