Drop everything and hire them now
I spent a good amount of time researching photographers for the our big day, but no one could compare with Gold Waves Studio. We were able to book them for both our engagement shoot and wedding day, they even humored me and did a small session of just our dog for the "must have" Pintrest inspired "my humans are getting married" shots.Sent on 12/18/2018
We were having a bit of trouble deciding between two shoot locations for our engagement shoot. Kenny stepped up and contacted both locations (there were specific rules to follow at both) and helped us decide which would better fit our ideas. He was super flexible with timing as our schedules were a bit hectic. On the day of the shoot, my now husband and I felt completely comfortable with Kenny. He made it seem like we were just being us spending the day together and someone just happened to be there to capture the moments. There were beautiful candid shots that when looking at the picture my husband and I would remember what we were talking or laughing about and didn't realize that was the moment Kenny was pointing his camera at us. What stood out to me was that Kenny was willing to be added to my Pintrest board so he had an idea before the day of the shoot on what kind of poses and angles we wanted. He went above and beyond, even getting in awkward positions all the way to the floor, getting our engagement shoot to be more than what we could have even imagined.
Days leading up to the wedding day, I would get messages from both Kenny and Queshon. Not only were they the photographers, but they were like my calming friends. Anytime I would feel the wedding planning craziness get to me, somehow they knew that was the moment to message me and see how things were going and if I needed help with anything. As a bride, someone offering to help or just be an open ear, means the world. To me, it gave a feeling of relief knowing that we had hired people that truly cared. On the day of the wedding, I got "it's the big day!" messages from them and would get updates on their arrival. Due to issues with valet at our hotel, I was late getting to our wedding venue to take the 'getting ready photos'. Kenny and Queshon assured me that they would get the photos I had wanted done; they were really prepared as they brought an assistant and broke out into teams in order to get the prewedding photos taken as planned. Kenny came up with the idea to photograph my bridesmaids seeing me for the first time; how the team orchestrated this was unbelievable to watch and the pictures turned out perfect. While we were waiting for the bridesmaids to be set up for that set of pictures, Kenny pulled my mom and I aside and took photos that came out beautifully. I remember at one point while I was waiting in the room to make my way downstairs to walk down the aisle, Kenny came in and just talked with me. I guess he could tell I was getting overwhelmed with trying to make sure we stuck to the times but that little chat went a long way for me. There was not a moment during the wedding reception that a photographer wasn't by my side, in the long run that saved me from a huge fall as I slipped on the stairs and Kenny was there to save the day. Throughout the entire night, we received so many compliments about Kenny and Queshon and how amazing they were.
Hiring Gold Waves Studio, you not only get phenomenal photographers but you also get people who truly care about every aspect of your event. The photos we received from the engagement shoot and wedding day will forever have a special place in our hearts. They came out so much better than we could have ever imagined and we have Kenny and Queshon to thank for that. We would absolutely recommend everyone to hire Gold Waves for any photography needs as they are exceptional at what they do and we can't wait to work with them again.

Wedding (Gold Wave Studio)
Kenny was our photographer for my brother’s wedding this past October. I seriously cannot say enough about the service he provided. When Kenny showed up to the church, it was a little chaotic since things were running a little behind. Kenny arrived with a professional, friendly, and positive attitude. Kenny knew exactly what he was doing and it allowed the wedding party the ability to stop worrying and enjoy their celebration.Sent on 02/16/2019
Kenny made sure they got the shots they wanted both indoor and outdoor. To our surprise in less than a month we received the wedding pictures and they had SO many amazing pictures. My brother and his new wife had no idea how they were going to pick pictures for their wedding album. It was so nice to not have to worry about getting certain pictures, but instead having someone know exactly what they were looking for even without giving him much direction. My brother and his wife didn't really have specific shots that they knew they wanted but rather an overall feel and Kenny definitely nailed it.
I will definitely be reaching out to Kenny in the future if we are in need of a photographer.
I could write a book with all the good things about this company, but it all comes down to one thing-if you are looking for a photographer book with Gold Wave Studio. You won't be disappointed !!!

My Dream Wedding
Although my wedding was planned in less than 5 months Kenny was able to capture the best moments at my wedding. The pricing was within budge and reasonable. The turn around time for the photos was only one month!Sent on 12/16/2018

It was a joy to work with Gold Wave Studio, and their employees for our engagement and wedding photographs. Queshon and Kenny were consummate professionals and kept us informed throughout every step of the process. The engagement photographs were captured and edited perfectly, and the wedding photos were stunning. Their care and expertise made what might otherwise feel like an nerve racking experience enjoyable. We have, and will continue to refer others to them because, although they are good photographers and businessmen, they are are even better people.Sent on 12/14/2018

We had such a great experience on the day of the wedding and our pictures were amazing. Our photographer was very professional and showed up early to ensure that everything was in the proper position. He also took the time to not only talk about the pictures that we wanted but also gave a few of his one recommendations to really help capture the moment. The candid photos that he took were amazing and we loved that he found us during the event a different times to help us get more pictures of just the two of us. Overall we had a wonderful experience and we would definitely recommend his photography services to other people.Sent on 12/21/2018

Thank God Queshon was here!!!
We had two photographers on our wedding day. Queshon was awesome. The other photographer (not affiliated with Gold Waves Studio in any way)— not so much. All I can say is that I am SO thankful Q was there to save the (picture) day! We LOVE the pictures he took and are so thankful we chose him for both our weddings (traditional Nigerian wedding first, then tradition American wedding)!!!Sent on 12/31/2018

My original photographer cancelled on me, two weeks before the wedding as they had confused dates.Sent on 12/16/2018
I was fortunate enough to be able to find Gold Waves Studio.
They were able to fit me in on such a short notice. I was an anxious, overthinking bride and they were patient, understanding and so helpful.
The day of the arrived on time and were dressed professionally. A huge pet peeve of mine is when photographers come to weddings or special events wearing whatever and are distracting.
They were fun, and were able to get great photos of my family, friends, and the festivities.
Thank you so much for perfectly capturing our special day!

The photographers at Gold Wave made our March wedding incredibly special. They took their time to figure out what we wanted our photos to look like and the photos that we wanted to have. Even with the unpredictable Maryland weather they made our day special. Even going above and beyond get aspects of our wedding that I had not considered like a drone that recorded my walk down the aisle. It made the day incredible for us.Sent on 12/24/2018
