There aren't words to describe my satisfaction with Candid Moments Photography. From the first time we met with Doug and saw his portfolio and what a kind, easy to talk to person he was we knew we had to have him. Once we had our engagement photoshoot we had no questions that it was the right decision. Not only were the photos completely breath-taking (on a day with no so favorable weather, about 40 degrees and high winds..) he remained professional, fun to work with and gave us an amazing product. The day of our wedding we had the privilege to have Doug and Kevin photograph our day and they really did feel like part of our family. They made sure that we got amazing shots but were never demanding or bossy-- they gave us options and ultimately let us do what we felt we wanted to do to get the most out of our big day. Our friends and family all said how much they enjoyed being photographed by the team at Candid Moments and how having them there to capture the day just enhanced their experience-- it never felt like outsiders watching us, they just felt like they belonged. My husband and I were worried about looking staged or posed but these guys have such an amazing way at getting you to have fun and be yourself while still making sure that you get that shot that you wanted. I would also be remiss to not include Gina, who did the communicating and coordination, she was a true pleasure to work with and always responded in such a prompt and helpful way. I will tell anyone that asks that booking with Candid Moments is the best decision we made as part of our wedding day and know that we will not only treasure our photos for a lifetime but also the experience of working with these amazing people. You will not regret booking with them it was worth every penny!!!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We love working with clients like you and Jeff! You make our job fun and effortless! Our priority is to always make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, and we are glad you and Jeff felt that way! Thank you for spreading the word about Candid! We wish you and Jeff an eternity of love and happiness!

We worked with Kevin as our lead photographer, but we also had contact with the owner Doug initially, and Gina throughout the whole process. Everyone we dealt with was fantastic! We really wanted to use them after being recommended by a family friend and Doug worked with our budget to get us a package perfect for us! Kevin was an absolute pleasure to work with and was great at being flexible when plans had to change a bit due to those wedding day glitches! He made sure we had every shot we wanted and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! I felt completely at ease all day! There was a chance of rain on our big day and Gina was so great at working with me to try to come up with a plan and she made me feel like no matter what we would still have great photos! I would definitely recommend anyone who can deal with my photo-crazy family!
Thank you so much! We are so happy you were thrilled with Kevin on your wedding day! You and Anthony have been a pleasure to work with!

After a lot of research and looking at so many photographers work, I was fortunate enough to find Candid Moments Photography at a bridal show. The owner, Doug Burns, was so kind and I was so impressed with him and his work that I knew that I wanted to have him photograph our wedding. We first met with Doug at his studio where he showed us more of his work, as well as his other photographers work and also went over in detail packages and pricing. He was extremely professional and took a genuine interest in getting to know more about us personally. While all of his team of photographers do outstanding work we decided to go with Doug because we really loved the artistry of his photos. We definitely made a fantastic decision! We just recently received our photos and are completely thrilled with them! Our wedding day went by so quickly and it was so hard to remember a lot because so much was happening, but Doug was wonderful in having captured all of the moments we were missing as well as the moments we were caught up in! He was so friendly and easy to work with and so many people, especially my mom, commented on how much they liked him. Also, I must mention how fabulous his Studio Manager, Gina, is - she was so quick to respond to any questions I had as well as constantly communicating with us before and after the wedding. Lastly, a very big "THANK YOU!' to Candid Moments Photography for such a beautiful and amazing job! Carole D
Hope you and Steve are doing well! Now that things have calmed down for us, I had a chance to look back at our reviews, and I apologize for not responding sooner! Thank you soo much for your kind words. We loved working with you both and hope you keep in touch! Thanks again, and please let us know if you need anything in the future!

I used Candid Moments for my wedding on July 8th, 2017. Kevin was the lead photographer and Adam was the 2nd photographer. They were absolutely amazing! We said that we wanted a lot of candid photos that captured the story of the day (because we didn't have a videographer) and that's exactly what they did. They were both laid back and easy to work with. The followed our plan exactly and had great ideas for shots. They worked quickly through our list of photos and made sure to get all the ones we wanted. Our photos are stunning and we cannot wait to get them developed and frame them in our home. Thank you Kevin and Adam!
Thank you so much! You and Spencer have been a pleasure to work with! Your wedding was filled with so much emotion and happiness and we are glad Kevin and Adam were there to capture it! We wish you both an infinite number of years of joy and happiness!

Candid Moments exceeds your expectations. Doug is amazing. Wonderful visions and willing to get down and dirty to get the perfect shot. Our engagement photos were amazing and we can't wait to see all of our wedding photos! We loved working with Candid Moments and look forward to using them again in the future.
Gina, who coordinates everything, is amazing as well. So sweet and very easy to work with. You have questions - they respond very quickly. Truly awesome people. Be sure to check out the blog as well - it's amazing.
We love you Doug! Can't wait for our next session.
Thank you for your kind words! You and Chris have been awesome to work with! We are so happy you loved the engagement photos! We cannot wait to deliver your wedding photos to you! We can't wait to work with you guys again in the future!

Kevin was great to work with!! He stayed calm, cool, and collected under pressure (bridal party was an hour late to the pre-church photo shoot-- whoops!!) and produced amazing pictures! I (the bride) was worried about not having enough time to take all of the pictures I had planned, but Kevin assured me we'd be fine, and he was right -- it all worked out and I am more than pleased with the final products. My husband and I love our slideshow and we are excited to show all our friends and family photos from our special day. We'll cherish them forever! Thank you so much! :)
Thank you so much! We loved working with you and Fran! Have a lifetime of love and happiness together!

Candid Moments was the vendor we enjoyed working with the most! Doug and Gina were extremely responsive and professional. Gina always kept us informed on what to expect before our meetings, coordinated our the engagement photo shoot and wedding day details and was extremely helpful designing our wedding album.
We had Doug and Daniel as our wedding photographers and loved all the pictures they took. Doug made us feel super comfortable right from our first meeting. He made sure he got all the shots I requested and also got tons of great candid pictures.
We're so glad we chose Candid Moments to photograph our wedding. We love all our pictures, the slideshow they made for us and our beautiful album!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We loved working with you and Matt! We wish you many, many years of continued love and happiness!

We were so happy with Candid Moments. From the beginning, my husband Ben did not want to spend too much money on photos and insisted we only needed 1 photographer. After initially speaking to our photographer Doug- he asked if we wanted 2 photographers but was never pushy. About a month before the wedding I decided I wanted 2 photographers and we booked Kevin. I am SO thankful we had 2 and so was my husband Ben. Doug got all of our shots from the front of the church and Kevin got the back. They were both very creative and posed us for shots I would never have thought of! Also- Doug was wonderful with children. I have a nephew that is very shy and Doug really cheered him up and helped get him to smile. We had 20 people in our bridal party and 8 ring bearers/flower girls that Doug and Kevin managed very well. Doug even stayed late to catch some late night images. We are so in love with every photo. Also- Gina is awesome! She was so helpful and quick to respond with any questions we had. I'm so happy we had Candid Moments for our wedding day!
Thank you so much!! You and Ben were awesome to work with!! We are so happy we had the opportunity to work with you on your wedding day! We wish you an infinite number of years of happiness together!

Don't look any further... went to friend's wedding and she recommended, and we used and we loved! Had two amazing photographers- made you feel comfortable (we are very camera shy), Lead photographer Doug and 2nd photographer Kevin. Did first look photos and really were able to enjoy the day spent with the bridal party and the groom's party and family! prompt responses to emails- assistant Gina amazing! Photos are gorgeous and arrived quickly after the wedding and they truly lived up to their name and captured moments I didn't even realize had happened :) Can't say enough great things- thanks so much for the memories :)
You are too kind! You and Travis are awesome clients and we are so glad we had the chance to work with you both! Have a happy and healthy New Year!

We used Doug for our Wedding and Engagement photos in 2016 and could not have been happier! The pictures, wedding slideshow, album and canvas print we ordered all came out beautifully! Doug and his team are extremely responsive and kept us informed throughout the planning process of what to expect. I would highly recommend for any photography needs!! ~ Tara & Chris
Thank you so much! We loved working with you and Chris, and we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

We found Candid Moments when we were looking through photo books at our venue, and as soon as we saw the beautiful landscape photos at sunset, we were sold. Doug was great to work with from the beginning, and is an incredible artist. Gina was also very helpful in coordinating our photos and providing all of the necessary details, and she was always so friendly. We were beyond impressed with our engagement photos, which made us even more excited for the wedding photos. We received our wedding photos today, and I hope it says something that I am already writing the review. We were completely blown away by the emotion, love and happiness caught on film. Doug and Georgi represented who my husband and I are as a couple beautifully, as well as our family and friends. Not only were they great photographers, but they also helped organize the day and keep us on schedule. I am now so thrilled to have the gorgeous sunset photos of my own that I fell in love with a year and a half ago. Candid Moments will absolutely exceed your expectations for your wedding! THANK YOU!
Thank you so much for your kind words about Candid Moments! We are happy you are both happy! We are glad the entire experience was wonderful! Hope you both have many many happy years to come!

We had initially booked a different photography for our wedding, and it was a challenge to communicate. She was frequently rescheduling and forgetting our appointments. Then we found candid moments, and it changed our whole experience! The entire team was so attentive, professional, and best of all, talented! We are over the moon with our photos! Thank you, Lauren and Jay Roux
Hi Lauren and Jay!
Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure working with you both and we were happy we could turn your photography experience into a positive one! Take care!

I would definitely use this company again! Adam was our photographer for our engagement pics and he knows how to make you look amazing!! We love our engagement pics as does everyone else who sees them. It is really helpful if you are on the fence about engagement pics to get them done by a photographer to get comfortable with the person and also to get used to someone taking pictures of you all day. We did this and it worked out so well - we used Adam for our wedding day recently - He is super nice, fun to work with, funny and very creative - My fiance and I aren't big picture takers but we both felt very comfortable with him and not awkward at all! It is a weird thing to be photographed all day but he made it fun. He showed us some of the pics right after he took them and I think they're gonna be awesome! I cant wait to get our pics back!
He also had Mike with him that day as the 2nd shooter and he was super nice as well. He spent the begininng of the afternoon with my groom and his groomsmen and they all liked him as well. He had his own ideas about different poses and places we could take pics so I am so excited to those pics too ! Also very laid back, great sense of humor and easy to work with !
And they both got along with my dog (who was in both my engagement pics and wedding pics)- major plus in my book! You will definitely not regret your decision if you book with these guys!
Thank you so much for your kind words about Adam and Candid Moments Photography! You & Josh have been a pleasure to work with!

We highly recommend Candid Moments Photography! From our meeting with Doug the Owner and Adam, whom we booked as our engagement and wedding photographer, to our emails with Gina the Studio Manager, Candid Moments Photography has been wonderful and professional to deal with. They were prompt and clear in their responses to our questions and, perhaps most importantly, we love our photographs!! I love looking at our photographs because I feel like they really captured us and who we are together. On our wedding day, Adam and our second photographer Mike were on time, came with back-up equipment, helped us wrangle our large wedding party, and made sure we felt comfortable during our photographs – even though both my husband and I find it awkward when posing for photographs. Though it rained on our wedding day, Adam and Mike helped turn that into a positive by capturing some amazing photographs of us outside in the rain under a large umbrella.
Thank you Karen! You and John are our favorite kinds of clients! You made our job easy :} We wish you many many years of love & happiness!

We had a wonderful experience with Candid Moments. Adam was our photographer and he did an excellent job. He is passionate, professional, but at the same time funny and easy to work with. The guests at the wedding were complementing him all night. Gina was also very helpful and responded to our emails and requests promptly all the time. We are very happy we chose Candid Moments as our vendor and definitely would recommend them. We can't say enough how pleased we are with their service. Thank You! Don't hesitate at all to hire them.
Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure to work with you and Christian as well! We are so happy you love your photos! Keep in touch with us, especially for any of your photography needs!
We booked with Doug at Candid Moments Photography during our first meeting. We were impressed by his professionalism and eager attitude. Over the course of the year leading up to the wedding, Gina in the office made sure we were kept updated on each step of the process. The day of the wedding, Doug and Kevin arrived on time and made everything so easy! We had obtained permits for photography locations around center city Philadelphia at the recommendation of Doug and Gina. The locations were so beautiful and our pictures turned out amazing. Our wedding slideshow makes me cry every time I watch it. I was truly impressed by how incredible the work by Candid Moments turned out and would choose them as my photographer a million times over.
Thank you so much for your kind words about Candid Moments! We loved working with you and Zac! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Candid Moments is simply the BEST!!! My husband and I recently got married and we had Doug as our lead photographer and Georgi as our second photographer. They both shot other family members weddings and we loved their photos so much that we booked them as soon as we got engaged, and I'm so glad we did. They were so much fun to work with, so professional, and are truly talented photographers. The day of the wedding we were running about a half hour behind and had planned to do all of our photos before the ceremony. Doug was really patient with us and figured out how to change the agenda on the fly and was able to capture all the sites and locations we were hoping for. We had so much fun with them all day and had faith in their work and expected to get some great photos, but we were blown away when we saw the sample photos from our wedding this past week! They were so beautiful, and really captured our wedding day. We can’t wait to see the final photos and our album. If you are looking for an amazing photographer and a great company to work with, definitely book Candid Moments!
We had Adam as our only photographer for our February 27th wedding and November 20th Engagement Photo shoot. We loved him! From the moment we met him we just hit it off. We only really met with him to be honest, but after my Husband and Adam discussed living in Binghamton and the meaning of life (44), it was so clear we had to go with Adam. He is funny, creative and super wonderful to work with. His pictures are simply put, stunning! It was really important to us that we have action shots and pictures that reflected who we were and how happy we were. Plus we are silly and that really helped when it came to working with Adam because he is a little silly too! We hated posed pictures that felt to us very fake and disingenuous and Adam was able to help us achieve that goal. The action shots from our wedding ceremony and especially our first dance were unbelievable. He capture things I couldn't even imagine. If you are looking for an amazing photographer who will capture all the little things, then he is your man hands down! We also had an amazing experience with Gina who handled all the scheduling and emails and Doug who managed our edits. The entire staff are kind, courteous and professional. It was such a pleasure to work with Candid Moments!
Thank you so much for your kind words! Clients like you and Sean are our favorite! You make all of our jobs very easy, and we enjoyed working with you both! We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!

Doug and Candid Moments Photography were absolutely AMAZING on your wedding day!!! Doug is so extremely talented, creative and we feel so lucky to have worked with him. He captured our day beautifully even after the wind on our blistering cold winter wedding knocked over his lighting. He did not panic and grabbed his back up lights and our pictures turned out even better than expected. He is the best in the area and we would highly recommend him and Candid Moments Photography to anyone looking to re-live their special day every time they look at their pictures.

we worked with Doug, he was great. Gina is always quick in responding back to any inquiries. I had missed some important things in my wish list of what should be covered and Doug covered it all and gave awesome pictures.
Let me start off with saying that my husband and I are not the most naturally photogenic people and never know how to pose for proper photos. Doug was so instrumental in placing us in flattering, beautiful ways that we love all of our engagement and wedding pictures! We were also extremely lucky to have some very unique photos in the dark woods and under an umbrella in the rain on our wedding day. Doug and Gina were so organized and very responsive to our questions and any concerns before and after the wedding. We had a lot of fun taking photos and are so happy with how it all turned out!
My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Candid Moments Photography. From the first time I met with Doug and Adam, I knew we wanted Candid Moments to capture the memories on our wedding day. Adam was our lead photographer and shot our engagement shoot. He is laid back, funny, and so creative! He made the experience much less nerve-wracking than I had prepared for. We were comfortable and the pictures turned out beautifully. Kevin was the second photographer on our wedding day and was kind, funny, and took pictures from angles we never imagined! The two of them worked together as a team perfectly. We just recently received our slideshow and edited wedding images and were blown away! The pictures are spectacular. I highly recommend working with Candid Moments Photography as everyone is friendly, helpful, creative, flexible, and responsive (especially Gina!). Thank you, Candid Moments team!
We had Doug and Adam as our photographers for our wedding and we could not be happier with that decision. I learned of Candid Moments at a bridal show and the pictures they had on display left a lasting impression. I knew then that I had found my photographer; I just had to convince my fiance! At our first meeting with Doug, we felt so comfortable with him and knew that he would be able to "capture the moments". He then let us create our own engagement session to reflect our personalities and relationship. Our story came to life in his pictures. On the day of our wedding, both Doug and Adam were so professional, yet they seamlessly became part of our family that day. They both helped to take my wedding day perfectionist nerves completely away. Adam even gave me his coat in between photo sessions on our chilly November afternoon. Doug and Adam captured moments we never knew happened and have left us with images we will treasure forever. Candid Moments Photography has found forever clients in us!
Doug and Gina at Candid Moments Photography came as a recommendation. After seeing Doug's photo's from another wedding, we knew that he took amazing pictures. From the minute we sat down to talk to Doug, he made us feel at ease and we knew that he would be able to take any shots we wanted him to. We were able to get a feel for how he worked while doing our engagement photos. He made us feel completely comfortable (despite the oddly frigid temperatures in late April). The day of the wedding, he arrived a few hours early to scope out the grounds of the venue so he could make sure to get some really great shots. We had my niece and 2 nephews, 6 and 4 years old, and he not only got them to stay still, and pose, but he got them to have some really great smiles. We can't wait to get our pictures back so we can see how well they turn out.
