The entire team at Bambino International was amazing to work with from start to finish. My first phone call I had with Michelle, she was extremely friendly and so easy to talk to! One of my favorite things about BI is all of the black and white pictures that you get and that they also give you the same pictures in color as well. We did our engagement photos with Michelle and she made us feel so comfortable and always makes taking pictures so fun! After our engagement session, we decided to add on videography with BI also! On our wedding day the team worked so hard and captured our day beautifully. Many of our guests commented on how professional and amazing the photo/video team was for our wedding. I would highly recommend BI for any documenting needs!!
