It was a delight to have Luminate Weddings as our photographers. They showed professionalism and brought a warm presence to the event. They go the extra mile to make sure you are happy and comfortable. Sooo happy with the images! I love that I can relive my big day, and remember how I genuinely felt when the photos were taken.

We absolutely loved having Luminate Weddings be involved in our day. They managed our tight schedule very well and captured every moment we could have wanted. When working with Luminate Weddings we felt as though our vision and personalities were immensely valued. They provided the perfect amount of guidance throughout our wedding photos - they took charge and provided guidance when needed, but also knew exactly when to step back and capture the natural, candid moments and emotions of the day. We feel like we scored huge by trusting Luminate to take care of photography for our special day.

Luminate Weddings went above and beyond what we expected. Not only did the photos look incredible but they went the extra mile to ensure that we not only got the pictures we wanted, but more importantly that we got the pictures that we LOVE. 10/10 would definitely recommend!

The shoot was very friendly, comfortable and flexible. The photographers came with their own ideas but were also open to ideas and inspiration from the couple. The shoot was very encouraging and fun. The images remind me of the fun we had that day (the shoot itself was such a fun event). They are playful, beautiful, and have beautiful lighting. They capture the joy of our relationship.

I like the attention to detail, the punctuality and professionalism shown throughout the day and before even meeting! The best words to describe how we feel about the images is that it captures our love.
