Bud & Sarah were the perfect choice! They went above and beyond our expectations from the very beginning. We fell in love with their photos but they were a few hours away. Bud face timed us throughout the process to make sure we were all on the same page and Sarah responded to my ridiculous amount of questions via email almost immediately. Bud even sent us a post card from Paris :) My husband and I were both a little nervous about picture posing and not looking awkward…Bud had the BEST personality and made us look amazing while making it seem seamless. I am so happy with our photos and I can not wait to hire them again!!

Common Spark Media took pictures for my fiancé and I back in September. They will also be shooting our wedding this May. Before we booked our engagement shoot or our wedding they took the time to sit down with us and hear our story and the vision that we had for our wedding. They were not pushy or overstepping their role, but wanted to hear what we wanted for our big day. I can honestly say that I have never had better pictures taken of me in my life. My engagement pictures were phenomenal. I honestly started tearing up when I saw them posted. It was so hard for my fiance and I to pick just one picture for our save the dates so we went with 5 pictures because we had so many favorites. He didn’t just capture us… he captured the love that we have for each other and our story in his pictures. We cannot wait to have Common Spark Media shoot our wedding in May. I cannot wait to be able to share pictures and memories with family members who will not be there and to share our special day with our children one day through the pictures that they capture. Common Spark Media will not just be our “Wedding Photographers”. We will continue to use them as our family grows and important things happen in our life.. we want Common Spark Media there to capture everything! If this is something you want then DEFINITELY give Common Spark Media a call to book your wedding. They are amazing!

I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding day. Bud made us feel comfortable from the very beginning and in the end everything turned out amazing.

We made a very good choice sharing our day with Common Spark Media.

Common Spark Media was amazing !! This husband and wife team are quick to respond to your questions and there to support you every step of the way . They love sharing about their past weddings and enjoy helping you plan out all the details of your wedding, so they can meet your every need! We had a meet and greet in person to go over prices and general expectations at Starbucks . Bud is super easy to work with – such a great person as well as a photographer . We also had a phone meeting several weeks before the wedding to make sure he knew who and what I wanted pictures with , we also went over my itinerary at that time . His wife is great when it comes to bookkeeping and helping keep the bride calm while planning for the BIG day ! I was nervous about paying more than expected for our photos – however you have full right to all the photos he takes ! You can download them and print them at walmart, cvs , ext. or have them professionally printed . All your photos get loaded onto your own personal webpage so your family and friends can view and download which ever ones they want if you choose to give them the web link . My husband and I were very satisfied with Common Spark Media, Bud has a way of capturing your wedding day unlike any other photographer I have seen ! We will be using them for future photo sessions . Thank you Common Spark Media !!!

Bud took our engagement photos and photographed our rehearsal dinner and wedding day, start to finish (and all for an affordable price!). It’s obvious that he and Sarah truly have a passion for what they do and it shows through in their commitment to the couples they work with and the high quality of their photos. They go above and beyond working with you to make sure you have the experience and photos you want. We’ve been thrilled every step of the way and would 100% recommend Common Spark Media to anyone!!

I was originally drawn to Common Spark Media when I saw the intimacy of their photos. They didn’t look like your cookie cutter staged, you stand here and smile photos. Every email was quickly answered. They were awesome. The photo booth was a hit at the reception. Bud was very easy to work with on the day of our wedding- very laid back which made the experience so much better. Our pics were fabulous- everyone loved them- especially us. And then we were out of the blue surprised when we got this beautiful canvas that now hangs over our mantle from them! I try to pimp these guys out to everyone.

My fiance and I are from Florida. He was working in Richmond on a client site when he purchased “the ring”. Richmond became part of our wedding story and we wanted to capture some places we visited through pictures. We had a hard time getting other photographers to even write us back. Through a co-worker, my fiance heard of Common Spark Media. They came highly recommended.

Our experience was excellent throughout the entire process. Upon entering an inquiry on their wedding site we were immediately contacted. From the first contact through the delivery of the final pictures, Sarah was extremely professional and answered all of our questions timely. Bud took the time to skype with us prior to the shoot to find out what we liked and introduce himself.

This is a family owned business and throughout the process you see how much they genuinely care. Our shoot felt just as important to them as it was to us. Bud took two days out of his weekend due to weather; he knew we only had a weekend to capture our pictures as we were traveling from Florida. He was excellent to work with and thought of things such as a pop-up tent to make it easier for us to change outdoors. For us, it was the little things that made the experience.

We had a blast shooting with Bud. It’s hard to say what we enjoyed better. Our experience or our pictures.

We highly recommend Common Spark Media.
