While getting ready I noticed how calm everyone was and having a good time. There was a slight moment of panic when the zipper’s hook on my dress decided to break during the photo session. I knew I had a terrified look on my face because when I looked at Ray he said not to worry and saved the day with his sewing kit. That was a moment of relief and surprisement when all the girls in the room replied with, “You do?!” to Ray having a sewing kit. - Oliana

At the start of the day I was nervous about saying my vows, but excited about getting married. My friends were instructed to not let me have to many beers so my face wouldn’t be too red, and they kept reminding me, being thoughtful of Oli. - Matt

The family photos with our grandparents stand out to me and also when Matt got to take a picture with all the hockey guys. Another moment that stood out to me was when Ray took us outside to take some pretty awesome night pictures. - Oliana

During the group photos we had a great time and Ray kept making us laugh. Our bridal party was already a fun group to begin with so we definitely had a great time. - Oliana

Yes, I liked that Ray kept things moving, since we were about to be pulled in 100 different directions, but he was also still patient with family and friends who snuck in for photos. Also it was nice he asked us often for any specific pictures we wanted. - Matt

There was a lot going through my head but I was really happy we could finally dance our first song in front of everyone. We wanted to dance to a fun and upbeat song because we felt that described our relationship. - Oliana

I wish we would have practiced something, but also knowing that my wife and I would figure it out and have fun. - Matt

I had such a great time I only sat down to quickly eat my food. We loved the speeches and the dancing of course. It was nice to see both sides of our friends and family dancing with one another. There were some new and unique dance moves that made everyone laugh and one particular picture that stands to me is the one of our friend Timmy doing the worm, aka the slug, and sticking his tongue out straight at the camera. That was a pretty awesome action shot Ray took. I’m still trying to relive the moments that went by so fast. - Oliana

We went out for a night photos and yes, it was so worth it. Ray gave us a sneak peak of an awesome picture he got with the blue sky. We cannot wait to see more pictures, Ray enjoyed the night photos as much as we did. We didn’t stay out for more than 5 minutes and I’m sure he got tons of beautiful photos in that short amount of time. - Oliana
We did go out for a night photo and I think it was timed perfect. I only saw it on the camera screen so far, but can’t wait to see it blown up. - Matt

I liked Rays camera holsters , he wielded those cameras like six shooters. Fastest flash in the east. Thank you Ray for caputuring all the highlights on the best day of my life. - Matt
There were a lot of great moments throughout the wedding. The day was beautiful to begin with and everyone was just happy for us which felt amazing. The night went by extremely fast ,and even though we were warned, we’ were left wanting more. One of our many favorite moments was when our hockey teammates surprised us with the hockey sticks arch at the end of the ceremony. There were so many great moments on the dance floor and I’m so excited to see the photos. My family keeps saying how great you were and how you would take pictures from all angles when were dancing . Thank you so much Ray! Your great personality, professionalism and talent made us feel super comfortable at the wedding. There was never a moment when we felt that taking pictures messed with the natural flow of the day as you stood back and let everything happen naturally. - Oliana
