Anchor Pictures did an amazing job capturing our special day, both of our videos are absolutely amazing! Mason and Savannah did a spectacular job! We are just in love with our videos and couldn’t be more excited. They were amazing to work with. They were prompt in getting back to us with questions prior to the wedding and it was easy to meet up with them even with our distance. During our wedding they were very personable and respectful of space. We are truly blessed to have crossed their path. We are so thankful to them for what they have given us, they brought our wedding day back to life in just 6 minutes during the highlight film! What they do is incredible and now our friends and family can relive our special day with us.Erica
Mason Summers is an absolute gem. Not only are his photographs absolutely brilliant and capture the day to a tee, but he is the hardest working and sweetest guy around. He and his lovely wife/second shooter, Savannah, are the best team. They accommodate your needs and make sure to capture every moment in a unique way. They’re so much fun to be around and make even lengthy family photo session seem like a breeze. So important when you want comfortable, natural photos. We absolutely adore our photos (as does everyone else) and will treasure them forever. Can’t wait to work with them again!Cassie
Mason was great to work with from our initial meeting to our engagement photos to our wedding day. My fiancée and I had initially booked Mason and a second photographer for my wedding in Shenandoah Valley (Mimslyn Inn in Luray, VA) but forfeited our deposits with the venue and other local vendors because the Mimslyn Inn was a nightmare to work with. As my fiancée and I were looking for a new wedding venue, we knew that we wanted to continue to work with Mason. We even confirmed with Mason that he was available to be our photographer before we signed with our new wedding venue (Hotel Monaco Baltimore) for a wedding date that was a week later than originally planned. If he wasn’t available, we would have continued our search for a venue that matched Mason’s availability. Besides being extremely easy to work with (responsive, laid back, kind), we really appreciated Mason’s unobtrusive photojournalistic style. From the beginning, we knew that we did not want any kitschy or awkwardly posed portraits and cheesy jumping photos. Instead, we were looking for someone that could capture how light and shadows can really showcase the beauty of a moment during our wedding day. When we first met Mason, I showed him my Pinterest board of photographs I liked to make sure we were a good fit for one another. And, by my wedding day, I had pinned over 300 photographs on Pinterest that I liked for Mason. Mason’s work is exactly what we were looking for. We will truly treasure the photographs he took. A BIG THANK YOU MASON AND SAVANNAH (second photographer)!!!Michelle
Anchor Pictures captured our wedding day better than I could have ever hoped. Beyond just photographing the event, they truly captured the feeling, mood, and joy present on that day. My two main priorities for that day was to have an awesome party for all of my friends to enjoy and awesome pictures to remember it, and that is exactly what I got!
We had 2 photographers, Mason and Savannah Summers, so that we got two different angles, styles, and perspectives on the event. In addition to the wedding and reception they also photographed our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and getting ready before the wedding. (l recommend all of these services if you can. Everyone says your wedding goes by in a blur and it is very true!) They also traveled across the country for it!
We didn’t have a lot of very specific photo ideas, just wanted to leave that up to the professionals and I am glad we did. Mason and Savannah have an eye for the perfect setting, lighting, etc. We did a “first look” shoot before the ceremony, and they did a beautiful job of setting that up and making that extremely memorable. They caught all of the important moments of the ceremony, from the smallest details and fleeting facial expressions to sweeping shots of the whole setting. Then, far beyond the traditional, formal family and couple photos (which were impeccable), I have hundreds of candid photos of everyone who matters to us laughing, dancing and having a great time. I think my mom put it best when she said “every time I saw a special moment happening anywhere, I would reach for my camera, but Mason or Savannah was already there capturing it”.
All in all, Anchor Pictures truly captured the feeling and mood of the most important day of my life and I HIGHLY recommend them. (In fact, I recommended them to my sister-in-law for her wedding last year and she loved them as well!) There are enough tough decision surrounding a wedding, but this one it easy! You will be so happy you chose Anchor Pictures.Monica
