Ian and Adarae are the dynamic duo! My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to lock down the Rempels as the photographers for our engagement shoot and wedding day coverage. If you take a look at their portfolio, it goes without saying that they are gifted with a camera, but it's their exceptional service that goes hand in hand which earns them 5+ stars in our book. From our first meeting, we clicked with their down to earth and fun-loving personalities. They're open-minded and flexible (we met other photogs who seemed set in their ways/very opinionated which was a big turn-off). They are attentive and detail-oriented which allowed us as the bride and groom to relax and fully enjoy each moment knowing they had everything covered. Their creativity really shines in how they document the details of the day. They gave direction when needed but so much of the day we barely noticed them there which allowed for some beautifully candid shots. If you're like us, you want two photographers covering your wedding day. With a husband and wife team, you not only know they work well together, but there's no uncertainty with who you'll end up with as the second shooter on your wedding day. And the cherry on top is the quick turn-around on photo delivery. Besides getting a handful of sneak peeks right away, we were able to access our photo galleries in under a month! Who wouldn't want this kind of service and amazing photos to cherish for a lifetime?...do yourself a favor, look no further and book them now! I know we can't wait to use them again for our future photography needs :)
Ian and Adarae were absolutely amazing to work with and we couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out. Not only were the pictures amazing, the Rempels were also just generally fun, kind people to work with. Could not more highly recommend. From support on planning and timelines for photography ahead of time, to their flexibility when we got a bit off schedule when getting ready ran a bit long, and patience finding a way to get our giant family in one photo they made sure to make the day exactly what we wanted -- and they made us feel comfortable in the process. It can be difficult to plan a wedding remotely, but Ian was great at checking in with us ahead of time and making sure we had our questions answered. The day of they both were extremely patient and made sure to get the shots we wanted, while also giving us the space to focus on each other and everything going on that day. It was so refreshing to know they had it handled, and the results are absolutely phenomenal.
We couldn’t be more thankful for Rempel Photography’s work at our wedding. Ian single handedly captured everything we love to remember about our first day married. His pictures notice details and make excellent use of natural light. But lots of picture-takers can do that. Ian surpassed our expectations with his sweet demeanor and genuine enthusiasm to be part of our day. Ian made everyone feel like the most beautiful version of themselves throughout the process with a steady flow of specific compliments. He was always ready with a quick joke or a fun story to make us more relaxed. A moment that I will not forget is when he pulled me aside, after seeing that I obviously did not like getting my picture taken, and showed me the photos he had taken an encouraged me that I was beautiful and doing great. Ian had a lightning turnaround, sending 12 samples to enjoy and share within 48 hours of the event and the rest of our photos in just 2 weeks!
The Rempels are true gems -- not only is their work gorgeous, but their presence is something that stands out to me, specifically (and was something other guests mentioned to me!) They were calm and collected, yet firm leaders when they needed to be. They kept the mood cheerful, even when dealing with tense family moments, and they also ran ahead of schedule. My maid of honor recommended them to me because she chose them for her wedding, which was within the same month. Being at two weddings they photographed in 30 days proved that what I saw and felt at my wedding wasn't a fluke, it's their norm. They are a delight to be around, and checked in with my husband and I at the perfect times, not only at the wedding but throughout the entire process. They were also incredibly accommodating and flexible! I cannot say enough good things about these two. Thank you both for capturing the day so beautifully!
The Rempels were absolutely amazing. They were incredibly flexible with our tight budget, really collaborative with the type of photographs we wanted, and a pleasure to have as a part of our wedding day! They managed to keep things running smoothly, dealt with family drama like pros, and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Our pictures turned out amazing and they would respond immediately when we had questions. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
When we first met with Ian, he attentively listened to our story, why we connected with his work and our vision for our wedding day. He worked with our budget, was extremely personable and kind, very detailed oriented and professional. He promptly sent us helpful documents for us to fill out that made sure his team did not miss any of our wishes. This planning allowed the team to clearly know what we wanted. We really appreciated this initiative to make sure there was clear communication taking place. On our wedding day, they were ready, providing an atmosphere of peace and cheerfulness. Something about them just makes you relax. This was a blessing! Working with them felt like working with friends (incredibly gifted friends). We received a sneak peak 4 days after the wedding and all the gallery 2 weeks after our wedding!!!!!!! We absolutely loved their work! We really appreciate and admire work that is authentic, natural, filled with light. Rempel Photography is exactly that. They captured all the key moments, made family photos go smoothly (which is really hard to do, because you are working with so many groups of people), cheered us on throughout the day, and gave us a true treasure with their work. I want to emphasize that Ian and Adarae are not only incredibly gifted in their profession, they are truly wonderful people. I highly recommend them!
We absolutely loved our engagement session with Ian! He made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and had great suggestions for how to position ourselves naturally. He returned our photos very quickly and we couldn’t be more in love with them!! We highly recommend using Rempel Photography for your photography needs!
