We used Pixil Studio Photography for our wedding photos. Bryan was professional, responsive, and easy to work with. He was very flexible as we had several photo shoot locations: Pre-ceremony site, at the ceremony site, then we did another at the reception area. He was willing to come shoot our wedding in Aspen even though it was a far drive for him. He was very accommodating and asked for a list of photos that we wanted and made sure to capture those must have moments. We are a very outdoorsy couple and he captured the beauty of the surroundings and the guests for the entire day and evening perfectly. We loved that he was able to get so many of our guests as well as the wedding party & family. The photos were absolutely stunning and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives. He delivered the photos way sooner than expected!! I was having personal issues in getting my photos to download to my computer and my husband & I had an unexpected trip to Denver pop up and we called him that morning and he was able to burn us a dvd of our photos that day. Which I was able to go home and download them to my computer that evening. Not only did we love Bryan's personality but his photos are incredible. Our guests loved the photos as well they were the talk to the town and we would recommend using Pixil Studio Photography for any event that you are planning!
I had met with Moodeous Photography as a second option and it was one of the best decisions I have made. The pricing is very competitive but don't let that deter you, it is excellent quality. I had seen samples of work from professional companies charging up to 5 times more that were no where near the caliber. For multiple reasons our original photographer was unable to perform, fortunately we had time to scramble for a new one. Kristy Rowe and Moodeous Photography were recommended to me by a friend and upon seeing her samples there was simply no way I could say no. It's not a blind endorsement, my wife and I enjoy her artistic style so much that we've even had an engagement session and album as well as a canvas print done by Moodeous. Don't read negatively into "artistic style;" what I mean is that the photographers eye highlights all elements of the picture to make a wildly entertaining shot that is guaranteed to make you happy, not just the "pose and shoot" that you may have been accustomed too. I will recommend Moodeous Photography as the only resource for professional photography.
Having traveled to Denver several times in the last few years, I found myself yearning to find a great restaurant. I had dined at many good restaurants, but nothing that really stood out. A co-worker recommended the place after finding it in Zagat. I haven't stopped thanking her since. Although the ambiance leaves a little to be desired, the food, wine, and service to accompany both were extraordinary. I felt like I was in a metropolitan restaurant again where everyone involved in my dining experience was truly interested and passionate about their respective roles. To be more specific, take the sommelier's tips and guidance, he was wonderful. The bartender was attentive and friendly and helped me relax while I waited for a girlfriend to join me for dinner. The server was extremely knowledgeable and virtually guided us through the entire menu. The cooks, who are on display via a window to the kitchen, displayed masterpieces on each plate, both visually and flavor wise. In short, simply amazing.
