Is this your business?
I am so lucky that when I started google searching photographers within the Virginia Beach area that I came across Sindy & Angelo! Prior to finding their website, I had such a hard time finding someone who offered both photography and videography for a price that was within our budget. Right away, I was so impressed by Sindy & Angelo’s website and their portfolio of work. Not only that, they offered us such a great and affordable dual package for both photography and videography. They made us feel so comfortable prior to booking by allowing us to FaceTime them for an initial consultation. They also provided us with a complimentary engagement shoot and that was when we really realized how lucky we were to have them be a part of our special day! My husband and I have no idea what we’re doing when it comes to taking a good picture but Sindy & Angelo were able to guide us through the entire shoot, capturing some of the most beautiful, candid moments. I also have to mention, the day we decided to do the shoot was probably one of the coldest/windiest days in VA beach! Sindy & Angelo totally powered through, despite probably not being able to feel their hands (still sorry about that!!! haha). You would have never known the circumstances with how stunning the photos are! When it came to planning for the wedding, Sindy & Angelo were so professional. They made sure to really get a feel for what shots we were looking for and they completely nailed it down to every specific detail. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly and they were able to get every shot that we wanted plus more that I never would have thought to ask for. Overall, our experience with Sindy & Angelo was amazing. They provided us with memories that we will now get to relive any time we want through their beautiful photos and heartfelt video! They are the sweetest couple, two of the nicest people we’ve been lucky enough to meet, and to now call our friends. I definitely plan on continuing a relationship with them in the future because if my husband and I ever need photos, we can trust that they will definitely deliver an amazing body of work. You will not regret booking with Cortese Photography & Film!
My husband and I stumbled onto Cortese Photography & Film by chance. I really enjoyed planning our wedding, but I was often overwhelmed with the overload of options for... well, everything! That was definitely the case for photography and videography - so I asked my husband for help one day. He found a link to Cortese Photography & Film's profile on The Knot and the rest is history :) After virtually meeting Angelo and Sidney, we just had a great feeling about working with them. They are genuine, sweet, and warm. We also loved the idea of getting photography and videography in a one-stop shop - as well as knowing that they would work together well on our big day. Because we got both as a package, we really felt like the price was reasonable... especially in the central Virginia area! They have a "light and airy" style, but still made the colors in our photos pop - which I loved. They even got some shots of the pretty leaves on the grounds of our venue, which is something I really wanted. We communicated in the months leading up to our wedding and didn't actually meet them until that day, but we felt very comfortable everything would go smoothly. We knew we would face some timeline challenges because we were essentially racing the sun - but the sunset footage they got was incredible! Then during our reception, they put some preview photos on an iPad for our guests to check out.... which was really cool. And we got those the next day via email, so it was a great way to hold us over until the entire gallery was ready. The photos were so amazing that I'm still having a hard time figuring out which ones to include in a homemade book. We are also ordering canvases with a few of the photos and calendars for our family, so I think that shows how happy we were with the final product. In terms of our wedding highlights video, I can't say enough how wonderful it is! I am a former journalist who really enjoyed the storytelling part of the job and I thought it was so well done. The video & audio quality was awesome. Not to mention sequencing and transitions. It wasn't just major scenes edited back to back. You could tell it was carefully crafted and professionally assembled. I cried, laughed, and just felt so happy reliving our big day - which are all signs of how special the video is! I didn't even know any of the songs they included, but I instantly loved them because they all just fit so well. Thank you so much to Angelo and Sidney for all their hard work - on our wedding day and the months that followed. We know it has been busy, but we are so grateful we have these amazing photos and videos to enjoy for years to come! I highly recommend them for both photography and videography. We couldn't be happier with our decision.
Choosing Sindy and Angelo for your wedding photographers is the BEST decision you could make. We did our research and reached out to several photographers in the area, but after meeting with Sindy and Angelo for the first time (and talking for close to 3 hours in a Starbucks) our decision was easy. They are so professional and talented, and they worked with us to create a photo and video package that was exactly what we were looking for. When it came time for our engagement pictures, they suggested the most beautiful locations and got our pictures back to us so quickly. We were blown away by how great they turned out. It was our first time in front of a camera, but they made us feel so comfortable. When Covid-19 hit and we had to change our wedding plans, the one thing we knew was that no matter how we ended up getting married, we wouldn’t do it without Sindy and Angelo there to capture it. They were so understanding and flexible when we not only changed our date but also our location. They were willing to travel to Maryland to be there for us and we will always be so grateful for that. Again, we got our pictures back so quickly and they are absolutely perfect. We already knew their photography skills were top notch, but this time they completed exceeded our expectations with the video as well. Sindy and Angelo are so good at what they do. I guarantee you will not be disappointed if you choose to work with them. Not only do Sindy and Angelo produce the best pictures and videos, but they’re also incredible people. We went into this looking for a wedding photographer but left with 2 new friends. We are so lucky to have found them.
We LOVED working with Sindy and Angelo. The were supportive and met with us in advance. They were very easy to work with and captured so many amazing moments on our big day. We got a preview of the photos right after the wedding and they were stunning. We just got all our wedding photos and could not be more impressed. They got every shot we wanted and make the day looking stunning. We highly recommend them. They were the best part of our day.
I found Angelo and Sindy and fell in love with their 'light and airy" style. My husband and I had a fall wedding out near Charlottesville, despite being based out of Hampton Roads, they had no hesitations with travel and were very professional and prompt! Assuming they have never been to our venue and with the limited daylight we had after our evening ceremony, I was nervous about them getting good shots . However, they both have a wonderful eye and the pictures turned out way better than expected. They got a wonderful range of detailed shots, bridal shots, venue pictures, couple pictures, family and friends.We also included our dog in our ceremony and they were willing to work with our crazy fur baby and got great photos of him as well. We were on a tight schedule and they managed perfectly. My husband and I are a very goofy couple and are not used to having professional pictures taken, but Sindy and Angelo were great with working with us and made the whole day feel very natural and comfortable. My husband and I are typically self conscious but we were so obsessed with our pictures and could't wait to show them off to our friends and family. I highly recommend Sindy and Angelo, they are very profressional, easy to work with, and are excellent photographers!
