Since then, they have earned respect throughout the region for their dedication and hard work to capturing beautiful moments. Read on to learn more about this great photography company and the owners...
Capturing Perfection Photography
What inspired you to start Capturing Perfection? There was always a pull to capture stunning moments, whether people creating memories, landscape, and even food, so finally I put down my phone camera and decided to take the gift to the next level with a professional camera. Learning about all the possible techniques and settings created a drive that has elevated Capturing Perfection to our vision today.
What do you love most about photography? Photography truly is a means to reflect and savor a moment. When I look back on a moment and have a vivid picture of the details and emotions within the picture it makes all the difference. Our goal is to capture the essence of the present moment.
Do you have a favorite brand of camera/lenses? Personally, I prefer Canon products, as the user interface is a bit more user friendly. The lenses we use vary depending on the look we are trying to achieve. For example, if we are looking to capture a wide area, such as landscapes versus looking to get the details such as a “ring shot” for weddings. If I had to choose it would be the 24-70mm as it encompasses a very vast range all the way from wide angle to telephoto.
Give us a brief overview of your photography services. Capturing Perfection specializes in several photography genres, including product photography, corporate photography, engagement/wedding, event lifestyle, maternity, newborn, and portrait photography.
How far in advance should engaged couples try to book you for their engagement sessions and wedding photography? There's no time like the present, seeing as most weddings are often planned months to a year in advance we have weddings scheduled for 2016. We like to incorporate the engagement session into a package, which allows the couple to get comfortable in front of the camera, and allows us to learn more about the couple, tailoring our services to their needs. It also allows for our couples to be able to use the images for things like save the dates and keepsakes.
What sets Capturing Perfection apart from other photographers in the Washington, DC area? The friendliness and easygoing nature of the staff at Capturing Perfection is what makes it an effortless experience between the client-photographer relationship, and this key component makes it simple to capture those special moments. In addition, to the relaxed and professional nature of the photography environments, all images are edited in house to add that perfect touch, providing you with the best image quality.
How fun is it to work with your fiancee? It's pretty cool working with my fiancee, seeing as we both have various perspectives’ one person is able to capture a moment in a complimentary way to the others. This is one of the major reasons it’s great to have multiple photographers. With us having a connection we are able to see something as simple as each other’s facial expression and know what we can do to help each other create the perfect look, true definition of a help-mate.
