Contemporary, moving, and real are qualities that couples look for when investing in professional wedding photography services. For Geann and Wally Magno, the talented twosome behind Beyond Digital Photography, these attributes come without question.
Seeking to provide couples with quality photography services at reasonable rates, Beyond Digital Photography was born in 2008 shortly after Geann and Wally's own wedding, where they had a difficult time choosing their own photographer. "We looked up every photographer's blog that we came across. went to several wedding expos, and yet we hardly found that 'oomph' feel," Geann shares. For Wally and Geann, each photo should tell a story. "The important thing is that, once you see the photos, you must be able to feel it, and tell the story behind it," she says.
Aside from an elegantly crafted tale, Beyond Digital boats not only of quality outputs but also of personalized service. "Since we began, we personally respond to email and phone inquiries, we personally meet with clients, and most importantly, we personally shoot in all our bookings," shares Wally. "Meeting our clients prior to shoot is very important for us. It is where we discuss in detail their preferences, concept, pegs, and possible venues for the shoot. We also take advantage of that opportunity for the couple to get used to us being around them, to break the ice." Geann adds, "We want our couple to be comfortable with us, so the shoot will be all just fun!"
Not only does Beyond Digital promise personalized service, Wally and Geann go out of their way to maximize their clients' experience as well. Considering time and geographical limitations, the company conducts ocular visits of the chosen venue, choosing to pre-identify pictorial spots in order to save time and effort on the clients' side. "We don't want them wasting their energy on senseless walking, looking for a nice place to shoot," Geann reasons. "We love our couples too much!," she exclaims.
Despite their impressive roster of clients, Beyond Digital Photography is not one to rest in its laurels. "No one is invincible. Constant research gives us a competitive edge," Wally explains. The couple ensures that they take the time to join workshops, learning new styles and techniques while acquiring inspiration from both local and international photographers and personalities.
As the saying goes, "If you want something done right, do it yourself," and Gean and Wally have taken this adage to heart. Beyond Digital Photography is an exemplary illustration of a matchless fusion of art, heart, and craft. Offering quality photography and unmatched personalized service at reasonable rates, Beyond Digital Photography is surely a duo to keep an eye out for.
