ABOUT CALLAWAY GABLE: Our Clients: David and Rebecca
There's no doubt in my mind that Allison and Brian of Callaway Gable should be ranked among the elite of destination wedding photographers. Their work is truly stunning, but it does not stop there. Their devotion to the clients' special day is unrivaled. It's as if they are as excited for your wedding as you are. They quickly become friends and confidants. At the end of the day you almost forget that they're your vendor, that is until you see their work - at which point you immediately remember they are geniuses.
We were married at the Cass House in Cayucos, CA, on the coast of Central California, a small and intimate luxury inn. On the day of the wedding my wife and I truly had no idea where we'd do our portraits, or our first look. That may seem stressful to someone reading this, but you have to understand, we knew we were in good hands with the Callaways.
My serenity was confirmed the moment we saw Brian and Allie on our wedding day "Yesterday we drove around town and found INCREDIBLE landscapes for your portraits." I knew they would have ideas! They were so open to suggestions and they were so open to trying new things. It's because of their ambition and creativity that Rebecca and I have gorgeous portraits surrounded by a field of flowers and grass - a location completely unknown to us, yet 5 minutes away from our venue and the beach. Who would have known? The fact that they constantly are thinking of your best interests, and don't just come to your venue and say "this will have to do, it's all that we've got" is priceless.
Brian and Allison’s work is what I feel will be the next big genre of wedding photography. Their pictures are beautiful and artistic and capture the essence of any given moment. They are high fashion without feeling too pretentious. They are photojournalistic but maintain proper composition and style. They are in a class of their own. By looking at any of our wedding photographs you're immediately transported back to the day - it attacks all of your senses. You instantly remember the way things smelled, tasted, looked, and felt emotionally.
Allie and Brian operate as one unit. They really work as appendages of one another. Allie's incomparable attention to pose and posture is an added perk of hiring them. One of the prerequisites to being our wedding photographers was to make me look skinny and please, for the love of God, find my "good side". Mission accomplished. I honestly believe I've never looked better in my life. Allie's wealth of modeling knowledge coupled with Brian's creativity and unparalleled eye compliment one another flawlessly.
My wife and I received our wedding album from Callaway Gable a few months ago. It's incredible. The quality of the book accompanied by the obvious hours of photo retouching and layout work sets the album apart from any other I've seen before. As you flip the pages, you realize that each picture is better than the last. It's impossible to pick a favorite.
I think the best thing a vendor can do for you, aside from delivering a great final product, is making you feel comfortable and completely taking something off your overwhelmingly full plate. That's exactly what these two do. You know that you don't have to worry about photography. They've got you covered. That loss of stress is invaluable. I really can't speak more highly of these two. Constant professionals. Constant artists. Constant friends. They don't know it, but I'm going to give them exclusive rights to photograph my family for years and years to come.
