(La La Land) Wedding Dreams Come to Life

If you are in need of a wedding photographer, trust us, go with Avenue Photo. You will not be disappointed! We cannot recommend them enough. We were referred to Margaret/Avenue Photo by our wedding planning team, Fidan (Designed Dream). We had 3 photographers who were really difficult to choose from, but in the end we felt that it just clicked ;) between us and Margaret. We are so glad we did!
At our first meeting, we were instantly amazed by how fast we were at ease with her. Our personalities really jived, we could not stop laughing and chatting. We left feeling like she needed to be part of our wedding team, almost instantly. And to add to the fun, the work by Avenue Photo is outstanding; there is a beautiful airy, clear light that exudes from their photography, a beautiful artistry to the style that we wanted captured as part of our wedding memories.
We had our engagement session in Fall 2017. Similar to our consultation, Margaret eased us into the photos. She helped us feel comfortable (much of the laughter continued), guided us through poses, and got to know us as a couple which was really sweet. The session was a nice way to build the relationship with Margaret and “practice” for our wedding photos. Also really love that Margaret spends the time to feature the sneak peek photos on her blog with a thoughtfully written write-up. Love the personal touch and reading through her perspective.
Choosing a wedding day location for photos in the city proved to be a bit challenging, but Margaret helped ease our minds. She phoned us a few days before the big day to talk through some details, see if we had any questions, and provided amazing advice which was so appreciated!
We woke up on our wedding day to a pretty significant downpour, however, that did not dampen our spirits. And as fate would have it, post ceremony the rain had cleared just in time for our bridal party/bride & groom photos. Margaret arrived with her colleague Adam promptly the morning of our wedding. Both the groom’s and bride’s parties had a fantastic time with the photographers (Avenue Photo) and videographers (Life’s Reel). Both photo/video teams were made up of such great friendly professional people, who seemed to also mesh well together and truly made the day fun and enjoyable. They worked in the background as the events unfolded, gave us tips for the posed captures, and led us through catching our special moments. The fun continued through a wonderful jam-packed evening; having Margaret and Adam there to catch all the details, those we caught and those we missed, was spectacular. They were even flexible enough to let us add-on an additional half-hour to catch our ‘first’ dance prior to leaving.
Margaret surprised us post wedding with a few sneak peek shots (incl the blog sneak peek) and with a special delivery of the full collection. Turn around time was so quick, though we were awaiting to see the captures with such high anticipation! We received a USB with digital copies, an online gallery to help us conveniently share with family/friends, and a thoughtful sweet wedding gift with a selection of our printed photos in a beautiful glass/gold keepsake box. We are so moved and incredibly pleased and grateful to see all the stunning photos and have these memorable keepsakes. We are confident that the next phase in creating our wedding album will continue to be the fun enjoyable process that it has been to date.
Margaret and Adam really helped us learn that a truly exceptional photographer can capture amazing photos and make it work optimally, regardless of the surroundings. It is the essence of the people: the love, playfulness, personalities that end up being the focal point and it resonates so true in their work. We are so glad of our choice to have Avenue Photo as part of our wedding journey - their eye for detail, professionalism, and fun genuine personalities and care are so appreciated and made all the difference. Thank you so very much with all our hearts for making this such an awesome memorable experience!! xoxo, Cristina and Patrick

We decided to go with Avenue Photo as our photographer for our wedding and I am SO happy we did! I knew right from the start that Margaret was the right fit for us because when we met we totally hit it off. She made me feel so comfortable and was so sweet I knew she would do an amazing job. Our engagement session was beyond beautiful and I was so happy with the way the pictures turned out I couldn't wait to see what our wedding pictures would look like! Throughout the whole process Margaret was amazing to work with and her pictures are truly drop dead gorgeous. It can be a little intimidating getting photographed in general but I can honestly say with Margaret I had never felt so at ease. Margaret and Robyn truly captured the whole day perfectly and knew exactly what to do to make us look like movie stars. My wedding photos are absolutely stunning and I cant wait to look back on them for many years to come. If anyone is looking to hire a wedding photographer you have to check out Avenue Photo!!

Margaret and Monika made our night absolutely perfect! We were so happy to have chosen the right photography team for the job. We originally met Margaret and clicked right away. That initial bond just made the whole process so easy. We did engagement and wedding photos. Margaret had great ideas for the engagement photos and listened to our location suggestions as well. She made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera. The wedding was flawless. We had smoke bombs and sparklers and they made sure to capture every single moment and took pictures of all the little details, all while being super professional and listening to all our crazy family photo requests. Everyone was complimenting the photographers, they got along with everyone at the wedding, it was just the perfect fit. Thank you so much ladies!!! Highly recommend.

You and Bart, your guests, family and friends were so much fun.
We enjoyed every aspect of your day, it was truly like documenting two of my friends get married, and I could not ask for me.
We still have to make a date for that glass of wine at Adamo! ;o)

Margaret made the engagement and wedding photography experience very simple and fun for us, which was surprising because neither of us consider ourselves particularly photogenic. The results speak for themselves though; she unleashed our inner fashion models and made us look pretty damn good! Her patience throughout the process was admirable, answering all of our dumb newbie questions and calmly reassuring us that everything was under control and would turn out great. We highly recommend Margaret and her team at Avenue for their exceptional warmth and professionalism.

We hired Avenue Photo for our wedding photography. Margaret, the owner, was kind, responsive and reliable from day one. Adam was our photographer for both the engagement photos and also on our wedding day. He was helped by Anna, who was wonderful. We cannot say enough about how amazing Adam was with every step of the planning and execution on our big day. He takes his job very seriously and kept us on track both to get great photos and also kept to our agenda so we were able to stay on time. We highly recommend everyone at Avenue Photo and cannot wait to see the images from our wedding day!
