We’re Savannah and Mason Summers – a husband and wife photography and videography team who have been married for almost 10 years, and working together even longer. In short – we love telling love stories. We believe that your wedding goes far beyond a celebration, it’s the foundation for your future as a husband and wife – and that’s the narrative we’re honored to tell through our work.
We are storytellers first, and see each individual wedding and event as exactly that – its very own project as original as your lives as a couple. So, we take a documentary-style approach to organically capture the elements of your day, and your history, that are uniquely you. Our film and photo work is done entirely in house – shooting, editing, and everything in between – to ensure each nuance of your story is expressed.
We’re East coast natives, Los Angeles locals, and eternal adventurers. Together we’ve shot weddings from everywhere between Hawaii and Washington DC – so no matter where your day takes place, we’re thrilled to be there.
Our work has received the Wedding Wire Couple’s Choice Award for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019; achieved The Knot’s Best of Weddings for 2016, 2017, and 2019. We have been selected as an Engaged Magazine Best of the Best for 2016 and 2017 and our work has also been featured on the wedding blogs Style Me Pretty, Ruffled, Ceremony, and Something Turquoise.
Mason and Savannah are amazing! From start to finish, they were extremely responsive, thoughtful, and professional. Their packages are very well priced and we could not be happier with the finished product. We went with the photography and videography package, which we are so grateful we chose to do. The video was a perfect reflection of the photos and vice versa. The day of, they had two additional teams members (one photographer and one videographer who were also so sweet) and they all worked flawlessly together, minding each others shots. Mason and Savannah were so easy to work with and they make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. They felt more like long time friends of us rather than someone we had just met, and that to us, really made a unexpected difference. Without out a doubt, we absolutely recommend this sweet couple!
We hired Savannah and Mason from Anchor Pictures to video our July beach wedding and we could not be happier with our decision. On the day of the wedding, both videographers were prompt and required little direction. More importantly, they were able to get all their footage without putting any extra stress on any member of the wedding party or family. They were professional and incredibly courteous. During the wedding, Savannah and Mason captured an incredible amount of footage. At no point were they shoving cameras in our face, yet their final product still managed to reflect every important part of the day. Mason was very attentive to our needs when we planned pre-wedding and he put his plan into action on the day of our big event, requiring little to no direction. Finally, Anchor Pictures got us our videos in a timely fashion. The final highlight video is unbelievable and we watch it at least twice a week. We were also able to get all the raw footage of speeches and the ceremony, which was very important to us. Far and away, hiring Anchor Pictures is one of the best decisions we ever made. My recommendation to anyone reading this review is to immediately go to their website and book them before someone else does!
Mason and Savannah were our videographers for our wedding, and they were amazing! Of the many vendors we worked with for our wedding, they were the easiest to work with and provided the best service. We met with them in person once a few months before the wedding day to go over the logistics and discuss our vision for our video. They had already worked at our venue before so they knew more about the specifics there then we did. Aside from them just being super sweet people, they were very professional and clearly knew exactly what they were doing. We found that the questions they asked us during our in-person meeting were useful for us to start pinning down the details of our schedule for the wedding day. During our wedding day they were inobtrusive but always in the right position to capture the best moments. They let our photographer take the lead for choosing spots to shoot and only occasionally asked for specific poses, etc. Along with our photographer, they were honestly a calming presence during an obviously hectic day. Our finished product was better than we had hoped for. The aesthetic for the highlights video was exactly what we wanted and we especially enjoyed their thoughtful use of the music we had suggested– we weren’t sure if it would fit with the tone of the video but they made it work beautifully. Other than that, they got every important moment including every speech and the entire ceremony, and a lot of dancing scenes. All in all, we couldn’t recommend Anchor pictures enough and if they’re still working when our future kids get married we’ll fly them to wherever in the world the wedding will be.
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.
