What can I say about Rachel and Paul (and Freddie, and Stephanie, and the WHOLE ENTIRE TEAM) that has not been said before? From the moment I found Playa Weddings through a Google search, I knew their style was just what I wanted for our wedding day. Paul’s videos brought me to tears, no matter how many times I watched. Rachel’s photos are beautiful, relaxed and natural, with just the right amount of artistry. The moment I reached out to them, Stephanie, the office administrator, was AMAZING. I think she even answered my first email in less than a few hours, but most emails you definitely get response well within 24 hours. She gave me the price list and was there for any questions I had. If you are questioning whether or not you want videography, their packages make it easy to decide and trust me, YOU WANT VIDEOGRAPHY!!! Once it is over, you can’t change your mind. With the package we chose (I think 6 hours of photography and express video, if I remember correctly) we received a credit that we used towards a photo booth, which are always a hit! The day of Rachel and Paul arrived earlier than scheduled time, and started with a few getting ready shots. Rachel was very good at making me feel calm and relaxed while taking photos. Paul, goes unnoticed, which is just what you want from a videographer. During the ceremony I didn’t even notice they (or anyone else for that matter) were there, but they are getting everything you want to remember! After the ceremony, they worked quickly and painlessly to not only get each family shots, but a group shot, as well! SO FUN!! Then it was time for the groom and I to get our time alone. I was mostly worried we would feel awkward and over-posed, but it was quite the opposite. It was very relaxing and fun, and even while taking the shots, we knew they were going to be amazing and it was great to get some time to ourselves, away from our guests. During the reception the photo booth was NEVER EMPTY. It came with props, a back drop and two sets of strips printed each “session”. We received the photo booth pix within a few days, and they were all hilarious. They stuck around and got some shots during the reception, but like I said, you really don’t even notice they are there while you are dancing the night away. The weekend after we returned from our trip, our Highlights Video was ready!! I couldn’t believe we got it so fast – like was literally shocked! I watched it 10 times the first day, it was absolutely amazing. I could not have imagined a better video. Anyone who watches it says how great it is and I still continue to watch it over and over. We haven’t gotten our sneak preview of our pix yet (as it has only been about two weeks), but I have no doubt or worry that they are going to be breath taking. Trust me when I say, no one is better than Playa Weddings and we can’t thank them enough for capturing our special moments.
