WEDDING + ENGAGEMENT GUIDE
HYPE FROM PAST CLIENTS
"My husband and I (married June 3rd, 2019) hired North Arrow for our engagement and wedding day photography. At our first consultation, we met with Kyle, Rachel, Kegan, and Le’annie. They were all warm and welcoming and just plain fun to be around! They made us feel comfortable and we could immediately sense their passion, honesty, and professionalism. They are great people to work with and they take the most beautiful photos. We loved our engagement photos! Our engagement session was split up into two so we had quite a variety of shots. They were intimate and whimsical with a little bit of hipster flare. It was also fun getting to see sneak peaks of our photo sessions together via Facebook and Instagram posts. There were some photos that seriously looked like a movie poster they were so good. We couldn’t believe it was us in those photos lol. We both appreciated how they were able to joke with us while they guided/directed us so that the photos would look natural rather than overly staged/posed. Our awkward selves needed that! 😉 We also appreciated their thoroughness; they would send us questionnaires to not only get to know us better but to help us all figure out the best timeline for planning out our wedding day. Weddings can be stressful at times, but thankfully North Arrow was one factor that we didn't have to worry about. They were accommodating, kind, and sincere in their desire to make this the best experience possible for everyone involved. I cannot wait to see how the wedding day photos turn out, but if it's anything like how our engagement photos were, I know they will be stunning. I know we will treasure those captured moments forever. Thank you North Arrow (aka Kyle, Rachel, Kegan, and Le’annie) for capturing and bringing out the wonderful details, emotions, and fun moments surrounding this special time in our lives! We could not be happier with this whole experience! ❤️ We wish you guys the best as you all continue to pursue your professional/creative goals! Bottom line people: HIRE 👏THESE👏 GUYS 👏 You won’t regret it!"
Kyle and Rachel are not only the best photographers and videographers that I have ever encountered, they’re two seriously incredible people. These two have worked numerous hours Nonstop to make sure, so we could have the best wedding experience and memories. I was blown away by the details, the emotions, the feelings and the stories the photos and videos have told. These two are incredible. If you are looking for photographers to capture the REAL moments, the best ones... You just found them! They are AMAZING at what they do, and are so much fun to be around! Thank you for making our day the most special and leaving us with memories we’ll watch over and over again. We love you guys❤️❤️❤️❤️
Kyle and Ray were absolutely amazing for both our engagement session and wedding day! As an artist myself, I was looking for photographers that had an eye for something different than the standard shots. Kyle and Ray perfectly captured our relationship with their creative vision in both photos and videos. They were so helpful, relatable, and communicative in the planning process. We received access to our photos quickly after our wedding and our friends and family have been so full of compliments! THANK YOU for sharing your talents with us!
"I'm so glad we went with North Arrow Creative for our wedding photos. Aside from the pictures being amazing, Kyle and Rachel were a blast to work with on our wedding day! They showed up exactly when planned in the morning, had the entire day of shots planned out and timed perfectly, were super cool and easy to get along with and everything just flowed seamlessly (even the pictures with our dogs)! We absolutely love our pictures and can't wait for our album as well. Our wedding party even commented on how great they were! Would highly recommend!"
North Arrow captured every minute of our special day producing beautiful images for us to cherish for years to come. Rachel, Kyle and Keagan were with us from the moment we started getting ready in the early morning hours until the last song was played at the reception. They helped us create our timeline and were excellent about keeping us on track and ensuring our special moments were captured. Their experience and expertise helped make the day stress-free and they were so fun to work with too! They even brought their drone and captured some great shots of our wedding reception from outside the window looking in - how cool is that? Your wedding day flies by so quickly it almost becomes a blur but thanks to North Arrow, we were able to relive ours all over again. They had our pictures edited and available for viewing in less than a month which is amazing considering the number of shots they took. Without hesitation, I would recommend Rachel, Kyle and Keagan to handle the photography and videography of any special occasion you might have. Trust me you will not be disappointed!!
I can't say just how much we loved Kyle and his team. They were incredibly professional from start to finish. Kyle and his team also did a great job of keeping us on track throughout the day which was greatly appreciated. We love our wedding photos and video. He perfectly captured the best day of our lives. He went above and beyond for us. They were loved so much that my Canadian bridesmaids want to hire him for their weddings in Canada. We will definitely be using North Arrow Creative for our future family photography needs!
"I cannot say enough good things about the team at North Arrow Creative. From the very beginning, Kyle and Rachel made the entire process an enjoyable one. They took the time to get to know me and my wife and use that to capture our story in the best way possible. From their timelines to their blogposts, they were simply incredible. I liked that during the wedding ceremony, we had these trees that were blocking the fire escape. At the very base, out of any camera shot, Kyle was tucked away recording every second of our intimate moment. I would HIGHLY recommended this team to anyone who wants to tell their unique story in a cool and creative way!"
"Rachel and Kyle are everything that you want and much more! From the first moment that we reached out to them, they wanted to be invested in our story and personally involved with us. For them it was about making sure that we got what we wanted. They offered us lots of photography packages to choose from, and they helped us choose one that fit our budget and our vision. They went out of their way to communicate with us and make sure that we were on the same page and happy with the whole process. They scheduled multiple meetings with us so that they could get to know us better, learn our personalities, and be able to capture the very best moments of our wedding day! Not only is their effort and work ethic amazing, their talent is equally fantastic! The pictures that they took were phenomenal, every one of them. Their staging, their variety, their locations choices, their angles, the quality and lighting, and everything else was done with great attention to detail and pride in their work. They work well together, they were very fun and easy to work with, and even better, they were very good at working with our family and friends on the day of our wedding. You have to understand, we had 19 people in our bridal party, not including my wife and I. That’s a lot to handle for anyone, much less a photographer who’s trying to keep a tight schedule! Rachel and Kyle did an incredible job of both keeping it light and fun and using our friends’ high amounts of energy, and still keeping things moving and flowing smoothly from location to location. The pictures were finished within a month after our wedding, we absolutely love them, and we would highly recommend Rachel and Kyle to EVERYBODY! They have very bright futures in photography!"
Choosing North Arrow as our photographers was the BEST and easiest decision of the wedding planning process! We knew Rachel and Kyle from several friends' weddings and always loved their style. When it came time to plan our own, we initially went with a combo package of DJ and photographer, but had some concerns about the quality of the photos and video. While it may have been cheaper, you get what you pay for, and when it comes to a wedding day - you've only got one shot to get a good pic! We decided to meet with Rachel and Kyle to talk through what a package with them would look like and are so happy we did! After deciding to make the switch, everything from there was a breeze! We had a pretty good idea of the style and direction we wanted for the photos, and Kyle and Rachel not only listened to that, but took it and executed it exactly - 10 times better than we could have imagined! We're so happy with the photos and video from our wedding day and would recommend North Arrow to anyone and everyone! You won't regret it! 🙂
My wife and I recently used North Arrow to photograph our wedding day and could not be happier! A few months back we used them for our engagement shoot and loved not only how professional both Kyle and Rachel were but how down to earth they were and how much they enjoyed what they do. We knew then that that they were a perfect fit. They captured every special moment of our wedding day and we were honored to have them with us.
We hired North Arrow for our engagement session and loved not only the quality of their work but how enjoyable they made our session and time togethr. They spent extra time on all of the details for a shot and made it an enjoyable experience for my fiance (who isn't crazy about taking photos.. much less a photo session) and I. The style of the shots is exactly that we were hoping to achieve-- natural, eclectic with a little bit of hipster/rad flavor. We were not interested in "posey" photos and I would say their style compliments for in-the-moment magic. We loved working with them so much we ended up hiring them for our wedding as well! Truly a great experience throughout. Communication with their team was also quick and professional.
This review is well past due, but Kyle is an extremely gifted, dedicated and honest photographer/videographer, and you would be lucky to have him and his company capture the memories from your wedding or event. From the first time we met him, we knew we had found the right person with the vision and excitement we shared for our wedding day. If you also have the option for Kyle to produce a short video, it's a must. We watch our video multiple times a year to relive the memories, and his pictures are just as good. Kyle and his company were so good, several of our friends have hired him to capture their weddings (even a destination wedding), and it's always great seeing him and getting to catch up and see how his business has grown. And, of course, his work product for each wedding is outstanding. We can't say enough positive things here, but just know that if Kyle is available for your event, booking him will be one of the best decisions you make throughout your planning process.
