We got married on July 19th, at Cabanas La Luna in Tulum, Mexcio. The bottom line for everyone planning a wedding--we feel like we got WAY more than we paid for. We found FineArt from their website and blog and loved their photojournalistic approach. These guys are the best--Professional, communicative, personable, creative, flexible! It can be scary to trust the photos of such a special event to a team that you don't get to meet in person until the "day of" (we live in NYC). However, through our easy correspondence with Lisa (the studio manager) and their questionnaires we felt like we were able to give them a very clear idea of who we are and what we were hoping for--which proved absolutely true.
We worked with Diego (lead), Alvaro (2nd) and Nati (assistant). Possibly their greatest strength is how quickly and organically it felt like they were part of the celebration--not outsiders. It allowed them to capture incredibly intimate moments without us ever noticing or feeling self conscious or worrying about "getting the shot". Aside from the obligatory, "OK, now one with Grandma and the cousins" shots, nothing ever felt staged or forced. They were also incredibly flexible. When the lighting wasn't perfect before dinner, they rolled with it and grabbed us at just the right moment for our couples shots on the beach.
We couldn't be happier with the pictures of our day. Working with FineArt and having Diego, Alvaro and Nati at our wedding was truly a pleasure...we were even sad when they had to leave the party! Easily one of the best decisions we made.
