Package is value for money.

I love how Matt and John captured our special day. Prior wedding day, a meeting was set up to get to know us better and find out what we want. The photos are lovely, very natural and feels real. They have fun ways of making us do our best poses to capture our best shots. And I need to mention that I loved the drone shots!
The photo booth was so fun! Our guests enjoyed it. The package we got also includes guest book so we have a printed copy of our guests photo booth shots.
