Our wedding experience was wonderful. We had set our wedding date with three months time to get ready and immediately began looking for a photographer.
We had booked a photographer that does great work and gave them a deposit.
But in the rush of the moment, we did not realize this photographer wanted full payment before the wedding.
We were ok with paying half up front but no one should pay in full prior to the wedding before even seeing pictures.
So when they wouldn’t work with us to do payment afterwords we decided to go our separate ways and they refused to give us our deposit back. They would not work with us at all.
So with a week to go before our wedding day we had no photographer.
We were using Martino and Benny’s for our groom’s vests and jackets. Martino was also able to provide me with a wedding dress. I found one I liked that he altered to make it something I loved.
After we told Martino our problems he pointed us in the direction of Curtis who I called the Monday before the wedding!!! He just so happened to be free :)
After talking to him, he was more than helpful and understanding. He came and photographed our wedding without even meeting us before the big day. He was fine with our full payment after the wedding when we met again to see our pictures.
Curtis catered to us 100%.
What we wanted he did and did a fantastic job.
Our first photographer told us it could be up to 6 months to get to see our pics. Curtis was done in less than a week. He worked well with my husband who really didn’t want a photographer and still managed to get wonderful shots of him. He worked with us and the crazy heat we had as well.
I would definitely recommend him to everyone. He worked with what he had and gave us gorgeous pictures.
Chris & Andrea
Chris and I had been dating about 10 years before he proposed. So when we told everyone that we were engaged the general consensus was “finally.”
Needless to say after 10 years the expectation on our wedding was a little higher than most. We got engaged in Hawaii November 2010 and in January 2011 set the date for July 23, 2011.
As soon as we set the date the planning began as I only had 6 months to get everything done. Living in Calgary and having the wedding in Winnipeg (as most of our friends and family live there as we are both originally from Winnipeg) posed a bit of a challenge.
The first thing I did was attend the Wonderful Wedding Show – where I met Curtis.
Being an amateur photographer myself, the biggest “must have” was a great photographer.
After speaking with Curtis for only a few minutes I knew that he was the photographer for our wedding. His style and attention to detail was exactly what we were looking for.
Anyone who knows Chris can attest to the fact that he hates having his picture taken – at all times! He will shy away from the camera or stick his hand in front of his face when photos are taken. However, on our wedding day he agreed to pose for “as MANY photos as needed.”
On our first trip back to Winnipeg we organized a meeting with Curtis so that Chris could meet him and to go over what we wanted our wedding to look like and what types of photos were on our “must have list.”
Once we left the meeting we both agreed that Curtis was the right photographer for us.
We both felt at ease when talking to Curtis and knew that we were in more than capable hands.
The end results were that the photos were stunning, and I couldn’t have been any happier. I would highly recommend Curtis to anyone.
Ryan & Raelene
When we began planning our wedding, there were so many things to get organized and remember to do. When trying to find a photographer, we didn’t know where to start. We came across Curtis’ website and when we contacted him he was able to meet right away.
Most people follow the saying “you get what you pay for,” but with Curtis we believe we got more than what we paid for.
On the day of the wedding, Curtis went around taking photos of everything! I was amazed at how many he snapped that I wasn’t even aware of!
When we look through the photos of the ceremony we are amazed at how we didn’t even notice him taking pictures, yet he captured every moment, close up and from afar.
We received our photos back quickly and were simply thrilled with how they turned out. We have received so many compliments from our family and friends and will definitely recommend Curtis in the future.
Luc & Danessa
My husband asked Curtis to be our wedding photographer.
From the very beginning, Curtis was very professional, approachable and asked us what our vision was for the day.
Curtis answered e-mails quickly and was always available to meet with us.
On the day of our wedding, Curtis was awesome! He was fun, got all the right shots. With our formal pictures, I really wanted relaxed pictures showing everyone having a great time at our reception.
He was really receptive to all of the ideas we had and did an excellent job making them a reality.
Looking through the web gallery and through the pictures was like reliving the day over again and it was really neat to see the special moments he had taken pictures of. Curtis got the pictures to us very quickly (within only a matter of weeks!) and they are excellent quality pictures in a very nice album.
We would highly recommend Curtis to anyone who is getting married!
