Lisa and Mark, September 2012
My husband and I knew we had found our soul mates when we found each other. Finding Joe was the next best thing. Not only did he have great pictures in his portfolio but from the first time Mark and I sat down with Joe at Hibernian, we knew his personality was the best fit for us! He made us feel comfortable and at ease. Immediately we trusted him. After our engagement session down town Raleigh, he had by far proved to us that he was the right man for the job! He did’t make us do cheesy stuff, which we both hate, and the session flew by. Neither my husband nor I like to have our pictures taken, but there was never a time during the entire engagment session where we were wishing it would end! Joe has a remarkable talent for capturing people in the moment. All of our pictures showed us (just better looking versions), being ourselves, in the moment, and neither of us have ever taken that many good photos in our life! Before the engagement session I was nervous about how our wedding pictures would turn out. We didn’t want to spend a lot of money on pictures and then not like any of them. (neither of us are photogenic) After I saw what Joe was capable of doing, with little to no effort on our part, I knew that we could relax about the wedding day. It was so nice to finally see the moments from our wedding day that Joe had captured. He seemed to be everywhere but completely unnoticed, capturing literally-picture perfect moments! Besides his amazing ability to take once in a life time pictures, he is very efficient and had the best prices in town. Our album was ready for us the day before we returned from our honeymoon. Not many people work that hard anymore these days! Joe was truly a blessing and we WILL have him shoot every other special event in our lives.
