Having Dan and his lovely wife at our wedding was like having two more friends there. They were easy to work with and the results were perfect! They captured the day in the most beautiful way. They are so incredible at what they do and as people who work in film, we were so impressed with the eye for composition, color, light, and spontaneity. Everyone looks beautiful, happy, and natural in our wedding photos. My husband says the heat was so intense and they were real troopers. He was in Starship Troopers and had to get a reference in since Dan and him are both sci-fi fans. highly recommend you use Watson Studios for all of your photography needs.

I’ve never received so many compliments about anything as much as I did with my wedding photos! They exceeded my expectations and I’m so happy with my wedding photos:-)

Watson Studios is not only extremely talented, but also extremely personable and a breeze to work with. From a planner’s perspective, everything from the first introduction to our clients, through the process of receiving photos makes our lives easier and stress free. On the wedding day, Dan and Kelly are a stellar team. With expertise and many years of industry experience, this duo is efficient and productive with the tight schedule of a wedding day, while keeping our couples at ease and a smile on their face. Their natural talent is highly sought after and not always easy to find, I would recommend them without hesitation to any of our future clients!
