Describe how it feels to relive your wedding day through your images?
When we sat down to relive our wedding day with Lenny & Melissa, all it took was one picture for us to be blown away. The overwhelming joy and excitement that we felt on our wedding day immediately came back to us through just one picture. Being able to see hundreds more was absolutely incredible. Each picture was better than the next. We would constantly turn to one another and marvel at all of the special moments that L&M captured. After looking at all of our pictures, it reaffirmed every reason that we went with L&M.
Advice or tips for couples on selecting their wedding photographer?
The best advice we could give couples looking for a photographer would be to pick someone they trust. Pick someone who shares the same vision. Pick someone who is easy to work with and communicate with. That’s what we did and that is what led us to L&M.
Is there one piece of advice that you would give to couples getting married?
The best piece of advice that we could give a couple would be to try and enjoy the process. It’s the same thing that everybody says, but it's so true. It’s also the hardest thing to do when there are a million things to accomplish.
What specifically was your favorite part of the overall experience that you've had with Lenny & Melissa?
We loved shooting our engagement photos with Lenny and Melissa. When we weren't smiling and laughing on our own, L&M made us smile and laugh as well. They don't treat this as a job... it's clear that it's their passion. It's something they love doing and it really shows in their work. L&M became more than just our photographers. They became friends. They listened to us and talked to us about what we liked and what we wanted. Working with them on our wedding day was wonderful. They made everything flow so effortlessly. The pictures captured real moments and not just posed photos. The whole experience with L&M was awesome!
Funny or memorable moments on your wedding day with Lenny & Melissa?
One of the best moments of the day was just before our "first look." I was expecting Nat to walk up behind me, but instead, Lenny went flying through the air and Melissa captured me laughing at Lenny mid-air. You couldn't have timed the picture more perfectly. Also, when we were taking family/friend pictures at a nearby park, the cops showed up and told us to wrap things up... L&M didn't let that deter them. By the end of it, an unnamed officer was in our pictures :) Beyond that, just having L&M as a part of our day was great. While they were there to capture all of our special moments, we felt that we had 2 extra friends there to share our day with.

Nat and I first met with L&M via FaceTime and we really hit it off. By the end of the conversation we felt like we knew them for years. We had already seen their work and as great as it was, we knew the people behind the work were just as great! From that moment on, we knew that we had found our photographers. That's when the real fun began... during our engagement shoot we didn't stop laughing. When it was time to work, L&M got the job done like true professionals.
In between our engagement shoot and wedding, we got to know L&M even better. As I've said throughout this testimonial, we felt like we had more than our photographers for the wedding... we made two new friends. When we had questions about our day of timeline, music, etc. L&M were always quick to respond and walked us through any of our questions or doubts. They were, without question, the most accessible and helpful people throughout the process.
On our big day, L&M showed up with a smile, ready to work. They kept everything and everyone organized without making the process feel like a job. This was the most special day of our lives and they captured so many incredible moments. When we came back from our honeymoon, L&M gave us the royal treatment as they showed us our photos. We were speechless. There were so many moments that we didn't remember as the wedding can be a blur. But thanks to L&M they found a way to capture everything... and because of that, we will have a lifetime of amazing memories!
