A few of my favorite stories.
Here’s what some have said.
If I could go beyond 5 stars for Curtis Myers of Perfect Circle Photography, I absolutely would. I first worked with Curtis when he photographed me and my then-boyfriend in Paris, during a friend’s wedding. Fast-forward a year and he was the first and only person who came to mind when we got engaged. I couldn’t have imagined anyone else capturing the day. Gary and I aren’t hams for the camera and we tend to get a little shy in front of the lens. Curtis immediately put us at ease. His flexibility is much appreciated, as even the most perfect wedding day has its schedule hiccups. I had been to several weddings where the photographer was a distracting presence…especially during the wedding ceremony. Curtis was the exact opposite. He becomes part of the fabric of the wedding day, folding into the nooks and crannies of every experience, capturing the moments that you don’t realize are happening and the ones you know you don’t want to miss. And of course, the end result is that we have pictures that represent the occasion beyond anything I could’ve imagined. Curtis’s expertise is priceless and he is a must-have for any bride that values the memories of the day.
Curtis: Wow. Thank you. You did a better job than I could have imagined. You captured special moments by making people feel comfortable and relaxed and your documentation of our special day was casual and fun- the photos are spectacular. They capture the essence of the day in a way that enhances our memories.
I always assumed that wedding photographers were something to put up with. You and your group made the wedding more enjoyable and encouraged people to have a good time. Thank you so much.
I can honestly say I did not have to think twice about the 5 stars given above for each category on my WeddingWire.com review. Come August, I will have worked with Curtis on 3 separate occasions, including my own wedding. What I expected in a photographer, were great photos. What I didn’t expect was his ability to calm our nerves, help ease our flow from ceremony to cocktail hour etc, and to have some big laughs during family portraits. Capturing a 225 person wedding is no easy task, yet he did it with a smile the whole time. Throughout the day, photos were taken organically, with minimal formality. The quality of the photos were exceptional, and we will be able to enjoy the digital copies for a lifetime. Thank you so much, Curtis!
Curtis knows his craft. He’s a very professional and technically savvy photographer. But anyone can study light, composition and theory. Anyone can show up on time. What Curtis brings is something above and far beyond any of that. Just take one look at our wedding photos and you’ll see how fully invested he is in capturing each joyful moment to the fullest. He’s incredibly passionate, intuitive and makes you feel at ease. But we don’t have to tell you that. The images speak for themselves.
We hired Curtis at Perfect Circle Photography to photograph our wedding in Napa Valley in March 2015. My wife and I had a very small ceremony so it meant that Curtis had less to work with so to speak (i.e., no guests, no bridesmaids, etc.). He did an absolutely fantastic job! He was exceptionally professional from the very start and even made the effort to Skype us twice before the event so he could get to know us (we live in Hong Kong and Curtis is based in California). The location of our wedding was Beringer Brothers winery in St Helena in Napa Valley. It is a beautiful location and Curtis captured that beauty in his shots. We were amazed with some of the photographs as he captured my wife and I in very natural poses. Those are my favourites because they are not forced in any way – just lovely shots of my wife and I who were oblivious to the fact that Curtis was taking those particular pictures. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending Curtis to any potential customers. I can honestly find no fault in anything that he provided and to top it all off, he is a super nice guy. Thanks again so much, Curtis!
In planning my destination wedding, I knew I was in for a lot of work when it came to hiring vendors from 2,200 miles away. Curtis was highly recommended to me by the event coordinator at my venue and I am so happy I got to work with him. He was interested and attentive to the kind of pictures I wanted of my wedding day and we were able to work out the specifics of the contract via phone and email. When my fiance and I first met him on our wedding day, we were immediately at ease because we knew he had an eye for all of the special moments we wanted to capture. I was pleasantly surprised to see all of the pictures Curtis took of our wedding guests and families and even more taken aback at the gorgeous photos of my husband and I. We got our first glimpse of the photos less than a week after the wedding and had a copy of all the pictures within two weeks. We’ve received endless comments on how Curtis was able to catch such beautiful moments that we will be able to cherish forever and share with the guests who could not make it to the wedding. I would recommend Curtis to anyone who wants to work with a photographer who is able to capture the essence of the moment and provide you with memories as vivid as the day they were made.
Both of our families love showing off our wedding pictures and boasting about how beautiful they turned out (they even made someone cry!)! Levi and I can’t thank you enough for giving us these beautiful pictures to remember our wedding day. And if I come across someone in need of a photographer, you will be my first recommendation.
