I thought photographers were just people who took really nice pictures before I met Aaron and his team. Our wedding and engagement photos with Aaron and team were far, far more than simply having our moments captured. Our pictures ended up being more spectacular than we could have imagined, and the entire experience working with them was centered around us enjoying our moments together. We had fun the entire time, at no point did we feel like we were forcing moments just to get the photos taken. In addition to constantly feeling at ease, Aaron has fantastic creativity and a real eye for how to use the world around him to make the resulting images pop. The final cherry on top was all the thought, planning, and personalization that goes into the experience before the sessions as well as the big reveal afterward. A first class experience that certainly changed my perspective on what to expect with a photographer for the important moments in life.

Aaron Watson Photography did an excellent job photographing our wedding (and engagement)! The team is punctual, responsive and detail oriented. Aaron easily coached us to picture perfect poses, while making us feel relaxed and beautiful! The colors in his photographs are stunning (worth every cent)! Finally, he provides TONS of excellent pictures and turns around his proofs VERY quickly! Photographs were one of the most important parts of our wedding day, and Aaron Watson (and his team) made our dreams come true!
