Hi! We’re Robert and Leslie Faust, a husband and wife wedding photography team. Weddings and Boudoir photography are all we do, and we are completely devoted to it! We will stop at nothing to capture the most complete story of the most beautiful, touching, and emotional day of each of our brides lives! We have many years of combined experience in wedding photography, over 34 to be exact, which allows us to combine all of today’s popular styles to produce the un-matched quality we are known for. While capturing that impeccable quality, we work very efficiently, and we’re friendly and fun to work with! We get the must have family photos, etc. done very quickly, normally in less than 20 minutes, and we do it in a fun and relaxing manner so everyone thoroughly enjoys the experience of the day. Most of our brides tell us we feel like family to them by the time the wedding is over! That’s our goal with every bride we work with. It’s much more than a job to Leslie and I, it’s a passion.
Something we feel is very important, we do all of the photography, retouching, editing and album design ourselves, not by outsiders! By doing this, our experience and artistry is carried over into every aspect of our work from the initial pre-bridal or engagement session, throughout the wedding day, and finally concluding with the beautifully designed handcrafted Italian wedding album that will showcase your memories and emotions for a lifetime.
One thing you can count on, our photographs and finished products will be on an entirely different level than anyone else out there today, at any price! You will find that our photographs will not be overly bright and washed out, so common among so many of today’s less experienced photographers. You paid a lot of money for that beautiful gown, that wedding cake, all those delicate meaningful details, etc., and in our photos we will make sure you see every bit of detail you paid for! Overly bright, washed out photos make us very sad! 🙁
We DO NOT have “Teams of Photographers,” or hire any outsiders so we can try to photograph several weddings a day as so many others do! To us, it’s not about how many weddings we can photograph in a year, or about how much money we can make in one weekend. On the most important day of your life, we are devoted to only one bride, YOU, and Leslie and I will be your photographers, “Period”. We only accept 35 weddings a year and turn all others away. By limiting the number we do, it allows us to stay fresh, creative, and give each of our brides the very best quality and customer service possible. You deserve that!
Our final goal is not be the biggest or the most expensive. Our goal is to remain small, affordable, and the very best wedding photographers in the business, a goal we’ve accomplished year after year for almost 3 decades.
With a few hundred 5 star reviews on the Knot and the weddingwire.com, over the last few years, it’s still a huge honor when brides often refer to us as “The Best of the Best.” Please take a little time to read a few of those raves on our site and you’ll see why choosing Leslie and I is without a doubt the right choice!
