We hired Aaron for both engagement photos and wedding photos. We love his style and photo quality. He gets to know his clients and ensures that each setting is tailored to their personalities. He also has great staff who seem to capture every moment without getting in the way. I would recommend Aaron and his team to all brides getting married in the DC, VA, or MD area.
Absolutely beautiful photographs! Very professional. Very well prepared. Had questionnaire and several phone meetings to discuss the day and photograph options. Had additional photographer during the day. Easy to work with and coordinate with. Had different packages available to choose from.
Aaron Watson and his team I would recommend to anyone and everyone. They were so organized and professional for every step of the way. Aaron made us feel like everything was going to be perfect in times of wedding stress and he made sure it was. So talented and we adore every one of our photos!
Love Aaron and his team! They are awesome! Our picture turn out great. He is very thoughtful and very sweet. I would totally check him out! He took his time to make sure that we were happy with the photos and really care about his clients.
Aaron is a phenomenal artist. In addition to taking some amazing photos, he also helped to keep us organized throughout our entire wedding day. We booked Aaron and guest photographer for 9 hours and while it's a fair amount of money, you will never regret spending the money on his photos. The moments he captured are priceless and really invoke the overall feel of the day...full of love, happiness, joy, gratitude, and lots of FUN! Jeffrey Gleason was his guest photographer for the day and they … made a great team together! They made it easy for us to relax in front of the camera and made sure to get the important shots. I am in awe looking through all of the pictures and they even put together a short video slideshow for our guests. Jeffrey also ran the photo booth set up and those pictures are some of the funniest of the entire night. The props were genius! I am so glad that we went with Aaron Watson and his team. I spent a lot of time looking at different Charlottesville-area photographers, but something about Aaron's work just really stood out. I am so glad I followed my gut. Read More
Aaron's team is professional, responsible, and fun! They pay such close attention to detail and provide more services than you would ever expect from a photographer! He captured beautiful shots of Pippin Hill and I'm happy to have so many photos to remember my wedding day. We also did an engagement photo session and he was fantastic- went above and beyond to accommodate the shots that we wanted.
Aaron Watson is an incredibly talented photographer. We had engagement photos with him at UVA which we cherish. He did a phenomenal job capturing all of the special moments at our wedding. He was a pleasure to work with and worth every dollar.
Aaron and his team are truly one-of-a-kind. They are super professional, and involved in all of the details to help ensure your pictures capture the day perfectly! I highly recommend a first look, as they will work with you to set it up, and take some of the most touching pictures of the whole day. I have compared our wedding shots to other photographers, and on the whole, Aaron and the team capture such a larger percentage of truly perfect shots. I would frame almost every single shot! If … the album is at all in your budget, I highly recommend it. It's absolutely beautiful! Read More
He is the most talented photographer! Our pictures look like they belong in a magazine. He captured our day perfectly and was able to get beautiful candids. He was able to direct family members and groups in a polite way. The photo album is worth every penny! Very high quality pictures!
Aaron was a total pro and we really enjoyed working with him on our engagement photos and wedding photos. We picked him because he captures beautiful, bold colors. Our wedding album is just gorgeous - we worked very closely with Aaron and his staff during the whole process.
Our photos speak for themselves. Aaron Watson is a creative genius and so much fun to work with. We consider him a friend at this point. We met with him at his office to go over our vision for the wedding day and what type of photographs we wanted. He pulled us aside during the reception to do an amazing shoot by the pool at Keswick. I have received so many compliments on our photographs. It was difficult narrowing down the picture to put in our album, but Aaron and Brittany were incredibly … helpful. We got really lucky that Aaron was available for our wedding. He also added to our day in that he is incredibly friendly, which meant that we have a lot of comfortable and natural looking pictures. We have a very "modern" family (divorces, remarriages, girlfriends etc., basically situations that could possibly be awkward...but thanks to Aaron it was a smooth day). Read More
Aaron's pictures are beautiful and we were really impressed with his portfolio. Our family shots are great. We were disappointed that we only ended up with one solo bride picture and one solo picture of the groom without his sunglasses on.
