There are rare times in your life when you come across someone who truly loves their profession and it shows in every way. I was fortunate enough to encounter this as I made a wise decision to hire Marty Moran as my wedding photographer!!
The first moment I met Marty, which was at the Scottish Rite Cathedral Bridal Show, he stood out. I remember him vividly as he truly took the time with each interested candidate to get to know you on a personal level and answer any question you may have. He has a passion for his work and for people that is honest and pure. From that moment on he was always a front runner on my pursuit to find the perfect wedding photographer.
When I came to the time to interview my candidates, Marty was gracious to meet my fiance’ (now husband) and I for dinner. Marty brought along his sweet wife Onda as well. This meeting sealed the deal for me as Marty took SO much time out for us and truly connected with us as a couple. It wasn’t a stuffy meeting of pre-rehearsed sales pitches. It was two couples meeting to discuss the amazing power of love and romance. Marty made you feel like you were in a fairytale when he describes his passion behind his photography! From this point on Marty and Onda were there for my fiance’ and I through all the planning stages! They even took time out of their hectic schedules to sit with us over coffee and help guide us through the millions of vendors to help us de-stress….a gracious gesture that was not included in their responsibilities!
The day of the wedding Marty and Onda were the calming winds in the storm! There seemed to be a million things to do at the last minute and stress was building but Marty and Onda have an amazing ability to provide a feeling of peace. Needless to say Marty did an amazing job not only photographing my wedding but keeping us all organized and focused on the joy of the moment.
Marty is a one of a kind….very rare and precious! I would highly recommend him to anyone! When selecting someone to fill this very important role on this very important day, remember to look not only at the professional skills but the genuine soul behind the camera….with Marty you will be amazed at both!
