*We found Ken Love Photography through many local bridal magazines and vendors sites. His work looked awesome. When calling around to compare prices with other photographers, he seemed to be in a different league than most, yet his prices were like half what the great photographers are. I love the photojournalistic style of photography. When we decided to book Ken, of course he was already booked, as many of the great vendors book up a year or more inadvance. However, he referred us to his partner (Chris Smanto), who has his own business and shoots the same style. Ken and Chris used to work together at a previous job, and then now still work together and refer business to each other. Chris' work was also in the same league as Ken's and Chris was available so we booked him. We are so glad we did. Chris was very professional and did just an amazing job for us. They work so hard for you on the day of your wedding (about 10 hours) and then many hours after the wedding behind the scenes touching up your photos and doing all the creative stuff too them. We felt for what they gave us, it was a great value. They are different then most photographers too, in that the package you pay for is for their high-quality style photography and equipment. You don't pay for high price albums and prints. They give you all your photos, some touched up and then all the photos on disks and give you all rights to print anywhere for much less. I'm told the prints are just as great as what matters is the equipment and photography. This way, we can spend the money printing every photo if we want and much less. For me, this is a better deal. Also, Ken referred us to our wedding videographer, who also did just an amazing job for us. I'm just so glad I found these guys and will treasure my wedding photos and videos! We hope you will consider using them, as again, we found that for a comparable photographer, you're going to pay about double what we paid for them. Maria and Brian Odeal. Married 5.1.10
Photography: Chris SmantoA + We had Chris and an assistant they arrived on time, helped us set up pictures, and were very flexible. They know where a photo will look good! Before the ceremony I was in the downstairs of the church, very plain auditorium. I thought he was crazy when he set me up to take pictures in this dark entrance. The man MADE light! I have no idea how but the pictures look like I had sunshine streaming in around me. They caught everything that day, a total of about 5,186 pictures. And we own all the rights.
*Absolutely amazing service and even better artistic talent. We could not be happier with our wedding photos. I highly recommend Ken Love or Chris Smanto for wedding photos or any other photos, they're fantastic!
