Jacques Bergeron of the Columbia Tower Club has said of Alante's wedding work, "When you look at Alante Photography photographs for the first time, or in 50 years, you will remember exactly how you felt in every moment of each photo".

A word about Photoshop, retouching and enhancement. Photoshop is a great tool for photographers. It has become apparent that some photographers use Photoshop as a crutch to save their photographs when they were poorly shot in the first place. Meaning the photo was composed poorly or the photo was exposed badly. I believe that a photo should be constructed within the camera first. The use of Photoshop is only truly needed for color correction. Not bring photos back from the dead. Nor make you look like you went under the knife or had major Botox done. I am a bit old school about this subject. With that said used appropriately, enhancing a photo with PS to create a certain feel can be spectacular.

Loren along with his team look forward to meeting and speaking with you to create and capture your event or session with amazing style and artistic sense.
