I was lucky enough to find an add for Symbol Photography on Craiglist during an intense search for the perfect photographer (or photographers in this case) last year. I remember looking at their website and just knowing that they were IT! I wanted them! I sent Brendan an email and I remember him responding almost immediately! He was able to provide answers to all of my "new bride" questions and craziness. The wedding day came and their personalities were just as fun, awesome, and beautiful as the photographs that they took! Every single person in my wedding party as well as the guests took the time to tell me how "remarkable" they thought my photographers were. Every person in every picture was unposed! There was never a "everyone line up and smile" moment! It was incredible! When I received the disk of all of the pictures I was not surprised of how great they came out. Many people said they looked like the were pulled out of a magazine! Now I am able to have pictures of one of the most important days in my life and not have to hide them in a drawer somewhere. THANK YOU NATALIE AND BRENDAN!!! The Fantastic Duo! I would recommend them for any occasion! They bring something special to the table!
Where to begin? I know, with love. I love them. Natalie and Brendan are extremely talented photographers, that is a given. Just take a look at their portfolio and it is obvious. What sets them apart for me though is that they are wonderful people. They will be just as excited if not even more so than you are about your event/life/family. They bring warmth and caring to their work and as a client you are a benefactor of that. If you are getting married, the people that you want to depend on are your photographers. They need to be there not only physically but also mentally and emotionally. They have to show up on time and prepared and of course they have to cheer you on. They kind of have to love you too (or at least for the event). That's them!
I got married in Aug. and the day was humid and hot. All I could think of was how awful I was going to look due to the heat. I was certain the pictures would show the flaws but to my amazement, the pictures came out great! The results were pretty amazing considering the day we had. Nat and Brendan did a wonderful job. If you know me.. you'd know that I pretty much hate being photographed... but somehow "Symbol" made me at ease.. and it showed from the pictures. I had an awesome experience working with Natalie and Brendan and would most certainly recommend them to anyone I know that needs that "perfect" snapshot.
Thank You Guys! Keep up the great work!
I can't say enough good things about Brendan and Natalie. At the beginning of the wedding planning process I was completely overwhelmed, signing with Symbol Photography was a complete "no brain-er". After looking at their portfolio I was hooked, I knew I would get great wedding pictures. But the part that I didn't expect was what great people they are.
As a girl, your wedding day is one of the most exciting and nerve racking days of your life. Both Natalie and Brendan completely put me and my husband at ease. Not only are they funny and easy to talk to but these two truly are the ultimate professionals when it comes to photography. They calmly drove us around the city to different locations that they picked out ahead of time, and the pictures that resulted were jaw dropping.
I would absolutely recommend Symbol to everyone I know. They're work was a dream come true!
Brendan and Natalie were absolutely fantastic. My wife found them on the web due to their type of photography, photo-journalistic. We checked out their website and just loved the style of it all. It was also very important to us to make sure we got to keep all the photos they took, as opposed to having to buy them individually.
After our first meeting, we knew we hit the jackpot and we could cross off photographers(s) from our list. They were extremely professional, went over all the details with us and explained our options. They were super friendly and we could tell exactly the type of vendors we wanted at our wedding! We did the engagement pictures with them and that furthered our confidence in our decision. They had great ideas to get those perfect shots. We loved how they were able to 'pose' us to get the photos we were looking for. We got so many compliments on how friendly and fun they were from our guests!
If you are looking for two wonderful, talented pros to photograph your event, look no further, symbol photography is tops!
We worked with Symbol for our wedding photos and love the results. Brendan and Natalie were very easy to work with, and I was extremely impressed with their communications. We put together our wedding quickly (engaged for 3.5 months), so we basically all of our decisions (location, exact timing, etc) were made last minute which didn't seem to phase them at all. We communicated often via email as the date neared, and they certainly put me at ease by responding quickly and with excitement. On our wedding day, they were very flexible, fun, and non-intrusive, but set up great shots. Thanks again!
I can't say enough about Symbol Photography.
I searched on-line for photographers near Boston and was lucky enough to come across their portfolio (which I LOVED). My fiancé (now husband!) and I made arrangements long distance, so we didn't meet Brendan and Natalie until the day of the ceremony. They were fantastic. They were very fun and friendly. Most importantly, they made us comfortable having cameras aimed at us! They knew how to get the right expressions from us and had some fantastic ideas for places to shoot. They processed the photos very quickly and we were able to share them very soon after our ceremony (which was important since we eloped!).
I can't even count how many compliments we've gotten on the photos. For example, last night I met a women who works with my husband and the first words out of her mouth were, "Nice to meet you and congratulations! I love your wedding photos!!"
I'm trying to think of reasons to go to Boston every few years for more pictures (if or when I'm pregnant, and we have a baby...). I highly, highly recommend them.
No one can believe how affordable they were. If I were you, I'd book now, before they catch on and the prices go up!!!
Symbol's pictures are true pieces of art. We worked with Brendan and Natalie for our engagement pictures this week and have been floored with the quality and thoughtfulness of their work.
What more can you ask for in your photographers?
These guys make a great team and if you've seen their work you'll feel the same way.
I had my maternity photos done by Symbol and I would highly recommend Natalie and Brendan for any photography needs. I had a great experience with them very professional and boy what good eyes for setting up a shot. I was so impressed with the end result. I can't wait to have them do a photo shoot with the baby on the way!
Hi Brendan and Natalie,
The moment I received the email on my blackberry kimwanna and I we rushed to our computer to look at our pictures because we knew you guys would deliver. Words cannot describe how much we love our pictures. We stayed up until about 1am just starring in awe, I had to wait until today to reply because I was speechless last night, and I couldn't put my thoughts into real words. The pictures look like they came right out of a magazine. We can't thank you guys enough for everything. From this day on you will no longer be referred to as our wedding photographers but our "Angels with cameras". Because we truly believe that you were sent from heaven, and you guys had Halos above your heads that Friday but it was just so hot and we didn't notice... and I have a feeling you are going to be in our lives for a long time to come.
Mr. & Mrs. Devonish
My wife and I researched a large number of Boston area photographers. We didn't want a massive budget, but we knew we wanted nice wedding photos.
After meeting with Brendan and Natalie we were both sold on going with them for our wedding photos. They came up with a lot of creative ideas for photos and they all turned out amazingly well.
Since the wedding I've received an amazing number of comments about how our wedding photos are the best they've seen.
If we ever need photos again I intend to go with Symbol Photography.
