Why do our wedding clients and reception venues love us so much?

Diaz Digital Discoveries wedding photography and video services

Our wedding photography and video teams work together smoothly and efficiently.

Since 2005, we have been consistently offering our clients the very best in our wedding photography services.  A few short years afterwards, we began offering wedding video services as well.  Our combined photography & video wedding packages have become our most popular package, outselling any of our other wedding packages and services to date.  More and more clients are choosing us to capture both services, because it truly is the best of both, from one talented and experienced source.  If you are wondering what’s so great about these combined services and what’s so great about us, here are a few of the reasons why our wedding clients and reception venues love us so much.

Award-Winning Talent:  A wedding celebration is probably one of the most difficult events to capture (and get it right) due to the fast pace of the day, the many different milestones that happen and the most important factor that you must get it right the first time, because there are no do-overs.  If you missed the moment…it’s gone.  Try to recreate it and it won’t happen. It just won’t be the same.  It takes hard work and a keen creative eye to create so many images in one day, that will help our clients relive their wedding day.  It also takes skilled people behind the video cameras, to create a cinematic experience of your wedding celebration that cannot be compared to your uncle’s (insert mobile device) video.

We Go All Out:  Here at Diaz Digital Discoveries we create both of these works; professional wedding photography and cinematic wedding films for our clients and we do it filled with passion.  Yes, we love our job!  We love what we do for our clients and they also love us.  We go all out, every single time we do a wedding, because it’s so important to us and we know that it’s so important to you.  But we feel what makes us so special is that in addition to our wedding clients, their families and guests, the wedding venues that we work in, whether it be for the first time, or returning to one of the many wedding venues which have selected us as one of their recommended vendors, all love us so much.  Here are just a few of our goals: (in no certain order because they are all equally important to us)

You Didn’t See Anything:  Our primary goal is to get great moments, to capture emotions and to create stunning images of your wedding day, but we also work very hard to be unobtrusive. We want you to forget that we are even there.  We don’t practice “in your face” photography and video and we capture your celebration from a distance for the most part.  We operate in stealth mode and at times you may see us for just a moment…and then we disappear into the background (like Ninjas)…all while still capturing the milestones and the moments in between.

The Fun Factor:  Our secondary goal is to make it fun for you, your family and your guests. Our level of high energy cannot be compared. It’s something you need to experience for yourself.  We have heard many times from many people…our clients, their families and wedding guests… how they can’t believe how much fun we are and how fast we move around…(we are everywhere) and always add to that how many weddings they have attended before to compare with.  A wedding is a celebration and a celebration should be fun.  We keep the fun going throughout the day, which allows us to capture the best smiles, reactions and moments from everyone attending.

We Like Hot Meals:  Our third goal is not to make you late for dinner.  We realize that your reception venue has a dinner schedule and we do everything we can to make sure we don’t interfere with that schedule.  Being the primary chef at my own home, I know the feeling of frustration from not being able to serve your “masterpiece dinner” on time.  It’s a feeling I don’t wish upon anyone else, so we capture your wedding, your formals, your families and your other important moments, all within the time frame allotted by your wedding reception venue.  The venue loves us for that and they are very glad to have us return because of they know we won’t be the reason they serve dinner late. Plus, we also like our meals to be served hot. 😉

All For One – One For All:  Our fifth goal is to provide our clients with both wedding photography and video services in one seamless service.  Call us a one-stop-shop. By that we mean, that our amazing photography and  video team work very well together.  Both teams are working towards the same goal…to provide our clients with an unforgettable experience.  We are not competing with each other (like a sole photographer and sole videographer would) to get the best shots for themselves.  We are also very mindful of each other, so as not to get in the way of the important shots…something else you won’t experience when you hire a separate photographer and video crew.  Best part is, you have one less vendor to deal with when you book both services with us.  We have a long list of extremely happy clients, their families and their guests, who rave about our products and services.

If you have experienced us at a wedding celebration, then you are probably recalling that great time when…(fill in the blanks) happened and we caught it. 🙂  If you are getting married and you haven’t experienced our wedding photography and video services, then you don’t know what your missing!  Chances are you already know someone who selected us for their wedding.  Reach out to them and ask them what they thought of us.  Word of mouth is the best way to know for sure.  Read our rave reviews which can be found on our website, Weddingwire, The Knot and our Facebook fan page.  Finally, give us a call, schedule a time to meet with us, get to know us and share your wedding day plans and wishes with us.  Then you will know you have made the right choice.  We capture every single wedding like it is our own and that way, we can be proud to put our DDD name on it.

OMG! You’re Engaged! Where do you start?!

Engagement PhotoCongratulations ladies!  (stealing from Beyonce’)  he liked it and he put a ring on it!  So, now what?  Where do you start after getting engaged?  There is so much to do that it can be overwhelming if you just sit and think about it.  But don’t get stressed.  After all the initial excitement from telling both sides of your families and friends, you are going to have a whole lot to do!  Most couples don’t know where to start!  No worries!  We can help.  Here is a list of 11 important things to do to get things started.

1- CHOOSE A SEASON.  Think about what your favorite season is.  Talk with your fiance’ about what time of year is best.  When are you generally feeling the happiest? Are you a “snow bunny”?  Perhaps Winter is your favorite season.  Do you love Spring flowers?  Is Summer your time to shine? Do you love the bright colors, coolness, cozy and delicious scents of Autumn?  Figure out when you are at your absolute best and mark that as the season you will be married.

2- PICK A DATE (range).  While you may think it will be too hard right now to pick a date, try to come up with a few possible dates within your chosen season.  You can worry about narrowing it down later, but for now have a couple of dates in mind for now.

3- DO YOUR RESEARCH (Financial)!  Find out what it’s going to take to make this happen?  How much money will you need to pull this off?  What does it cost to book a wedding venue, a photographer, church or JP, DJ, Limo and anything else you have in mind for your wedding…and don’t forget you will need to purchase or rent your gown!  Will you be getting financial help from your family or will it be funded by just the two of you? Is your wedding going to be this year or will you need to push it out in order to get your finances in order?   Make sure you have a clear understanding of this before you go on.

4- CHOOSE A BUDGET (range).  Now that you have an idea of what stuff costs, what’s going to be your budget?  It may sound weird to say “choose a budget”, but that is actually what you need to do.  Choose a (budget range)…but know that you are most likely going to need to adjust it, unless you already know exactly what everything you want and need costs.  I hear people saying that they can’t afford this, or can’t afford that…but that’s not really the case.  You see, people have money for the things they really want.  You really want that $700 tablet – right?  Then you save your money and you buy it.  Or, you say $700 is too much for me to spend on a tablet and you don’t buy it.  When you say you can’t afford something, you are just saying that you don’t want it that bad.  Because if you save up for it, you would have it.  So, choose how much you are willing to invest in your wedding in total…and also break it down into sections.  How much for the location, how much for the photographer, how much for the cake, etc.  How badly do you want each of these?  Then once you have that amount, later you can readjust or reallocate if need be.  Then start saving!!!

5- LOCATION LOCATION.  Where do you envision your dream wedding to be?  Does that location fit into your budget range?  If not, do you need to reevaluate your budget or choose another location?  Ask if they are available for the date (ranges) you have in mind. Again, ask yourself, how badly do I want this location?

6- PHOTOGRAPHY-VIDEOGRAPHY.  Why is this step so far up on the list?  Because the best and most popular wedding Photographers/Videographers will book up fast.  What does fast mean?  Well, typically 12-24 months before your wedding day your photographer is booking up their calendar.  For some, it’s even prior to that.  For instance, we were already booking weddings for 2015 during the Fall season of 2013.  And if your wedding date is during a popular month (May, June, September, October) there will be lots of other brides looking for those dates as well.  Talk with your photographer about your date ranges and see if they are available.  Remember to choose someone who’s work you love, but also someone you can connect with.  This will make your whole wedding day experience so much better. Do you need to readjust your budget or reallocate funds to get this photographer?  That depends on how important your wedding photography & videography is to you and how badly you want that vendor.  We can even help with recommendations on other vendors we have worked with in the past.

7- OTHER VENDORS.  The best vendors book up first, so once you know what you need, DJ, Entertainment, Cake, Flowers, etc…contact them right away.  Most will take a small deposit to reserve your date.  Get a better chance of having  your #1 choice on each of your vendors if you don’t wait until a later time to book them.

8- SAY YES TO A DRESS.  But before you do, pick up some bridal magazines and get inspired with the different styles and designs available for your season.  Don’t just settle for the strapless gowns that you see practically everywhere.  Strapless wedding gowns look beautiful on some women, but not on all women.  Find the perfect gown that fits great and looks great on you based on your body type.  Straps, sleeves, lace or a combination of all can be both elegant and compliment your figure.  Most dresses will need alterations and this can take time, so get a jump on this so you’ll have your dress in plenty of time before your wedding day.

9- GET HELP.  Who else is also very excited about your wedding?  Let them help you with the multitude of things you have to do?  Get ideas from your friends and family who are super excited about your big day and willing to do whatever it takes to make that day your best day ever!  Use their ideas as your inspiration and make it your own.

10- ONE DAY AT A TIME.  A complete wedding celebration isn’t built in one day or one week.  Don’t even try to get it all done in a month.  Dedicate a calendar to your wedding and figure out beforehand  when each milestone needs to be crossed off.  Some online wedding websites have a calendar feature and can help you get organized and have a plan of action.  Don’t worry too much if your miss a milestone either.  As long as you are close to the date chosen to complete each task, you are in good shape and you will be less stressed when your wedding date gets closer.

11- IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU (both).  Remember it’s all about you and your future spouse.  I can’t stress this enough.  Family and friends can overload you with their advice and suggestions on what you should do.  Try not to get all wrapped up in what everyone else thinks you should do or wants you to do on your wedding day.  Make it about you both and you will love everything about your wedding day.  Remember it’s a celebration so keep the stress level down.

Make the planning process fun, by getting ahead of it and not waiting til it’s crunch time.  With enough time, you can make this day one of the best days of your life.  Get your future spouse involved if you can and have fun with it.

Best Wishes!
