Planning a destination wedding is quite an experience. You plan with faith. You find and book a venue you may not have ever visited and vendors whom you have never met. Now was it scary to book FineArt Studio Photography? Happy to say, not at all!! Elena, the Sales Manager, was our number one contact through e-mail from day one! I first learned about FineArt through a WeddingWire thread. I saw their work and immediately spotted Diego's portfolio for a lovely couple getting married at Paradisus Cancun, the location of my wedding. I was immediately drawn to the vibrant colors of his photographs, and the beautiful candid shots he took of the couple throughout the day. Initially Diego was not available for my wedding date but Elena contacted me immediately when his schedule changed and without hesitation, I signed the contract the same day. Leading up to the wedding, Elena would email us with questionnaires that would help them understand the timeline of the day and we worked out the best schedule for the photographers to arrive. On the day of my wedding, Diego and Gionata arrived at 3:00PM sharp. The moment they walked in, they introduced themselves, and immediately started to work. They worked so hard throughout the day, bending down, climbing up, testing every lighting and angle to play around with different kinds of shots. They made suggestions as how to pose or where we should be during certain times of the evening for the best lighting. By the end of the night, Diego and Gionata were just enjoying themselves and laughing and interacting with us as the day was wrapping up. My husband and I are uncomfortable in front of a camera but felt very comfortable working with them all throughout the day/night! After our wedding day, we decided to opt into a "rush order" since we have an event in NYC in a few weeks that we would like to show the photographs in. We received our photos in record time, and they just came out beautifully!! A wonderful mix of day to nighttime photographs with some beautiful shots during sunset. Extremely vibrant colors and both photographers really listened to us when we said that we wanted more photographs of friends/family. Diego and Gionata captured our day perfectly and it was such a great experience for my husband and I to sit together and relive every moment that made us so happy. I would like to take this time to thank the entire team of FineArt Studio Photography, Elena, Diego and Gionata for making the process so simple and enjoyable, and for giving us these beautiful photographs that we'll be looking back at for the rest of our lives!
