Love Notes

Linda Wexler

Omg! Aaron Lurie…you are amazing, energetic, professional and creative!! From very early morning to beyond the bewitching hour you didn’t miss a moment or opportunity to capture the action! You were always in the right place at the right time but yet you took the time to capture all the details of the party and decor. You were amazing to work with and made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed!!

If anyone is having a future event and wants a reference…please PM me. I would be more then happy to share!!

Advice for future Mitzvah moms..the pre-mitzvah shoot is totally necessary to not only have great photos to use at the party but to also develop a rapport with the photographer who should only be Aaron Lurie!! But only if you want the very BEST!.

The photo’s tell the story in front of the lens. Behind the lens Aaron is as professional as he is excited at every opportunity to capture the moments. Working with him last week his enthusiasm was infectious and his vision to create moments out of nothing was so refreshing to witness. Well done team VMA!

2 weeks before our wedding, we were left without a photographer. From a friend, I was referred to Aaron from VMA Studios and within minutes of leaving my contact information through the website, i was contacted by Aaron himself. My wife and I went from a feeling of panic and chaos, to a sense of relaxation as Aaron quickly and effortlessly walked us through the setup process. It was the same when it came time for our wedding, and my wife and I couldn’t have been more happy with the way Aaron and his team conducted themselves. Everyone that attended our wedding was so impressed by their skill and professionalism. The final edited pictures came out beautiful and we are so glad we hired VMA Studios to capture our special day. I highly recommend them for all types of event photography!.

 Aaron and VMA studios are absolutely amazing!! From the moment we met Aaron, he made us feel so comfortable and was genuinely interested in getting to know us and our wants and needs. He has a great eye for light and movement and our mitzvah photos really reflect his talent. Aaron has a very calming presence about him which makes you feel comfortable on one of the most important days of your life. We are so very lucky to have found him. I know we will be using Aaron again in the future to capture our other life moments. We are so glad we chose Aaron to document our special day and would recommend him to anyone looking for an incredible photographer!

 VMAstudios was AMAZING!!! The pictures came out beautiful and they captured all of the best moments from our special day! Every time I look at them I am instantly brought back to those memories. He was very professional and was willing to go above and beyond to help grasp every moment of that day. He even stopped traffic so we could get a picture of us crossing the street like the Beatles!!! It was amazing! I highly recommend VMAstudios to all couples looking for the BEST way to capture all the precious moments of their special day!

Today was the day I had been waiting for, I got my pictures back from Aaron Lurie from my children’s b’nai mitzvah. To say I was blown away is an understatement. Each picture is more perfect than the next and I cannot stop staring at them (all 525 of them)! If anybody out there is looking for a photographer, I very highly recommend Aaron. He and his team were a delight to work with, they were professional yet non-intrusive and I absolutely could not be happier. On a bittersweet note, my mother passed away 3 weeks after the B’nai Mitzvah. The joy that my father and I get when we look at her in the pictures Aaron took is priceless. She looked beautiful and happy and I am so grateful that I have these images to remember her by.

Aaron Lurie has a gift. That gift comprises vision, passion, creativity and the ability to step outside the box and capture in a split second what easily could have been missed.
Thanks for capturing in a split second something that will last forever.
So glad and honored that you shared your gift with me when you did the photo shoot of me for the magazine. I look forward to having many flashes of memories captured by you for any special occasion …and I believe everyday is a special occasion!
Thx Aaron-truly!

Aaron is a true professional and a pretty awesome human! I photographed my daughter Kalena’s first birthday and it was an absolute nightmare for me. Aaron took all the stress away at her 2nd birthday this past Saturday and captured her personality perfectly! He meshed with our family like he was one of our own! I highly recommend him for event photography and I will definitely be using him again!!! 🙂

 “For two years now, the Florida Festivals and Events Association has trusted Aaron Lurie as the Official Event Photographer for our Annual Convention and Trade show and he continues to exceed expectations. As the leading Association for the Festival and Event Industry in Florida, FFEA gathers more than 300 event professionals for three days of education, networking and entertainment. Our event has many moving parts, yet Aaron somehow manages to Capture Every Moment perfectly. He is so professional and I have never met a harder working photographer, not to mention the fact that his images are flawless. Aaron has a talent that is truly unique. Every year I am blown away by the quality of the images we receive and how quickly we receive them. He just seems to “get it” when it comes to the types of shots we need for future marketing and sponsorship and requires very little direction from our staff. We only gather as a group once per year so we only have one chance to get the images we need and I am 100% confident that Aaron will produce those images every year.

If you are looking for a photographer who is personable, professional and truly talented, then you should absolutely place your event in Aaron’s hands.”

 A tremendous THANK YOU to Aaron Lurie for capturing the true essence of my son on one of the most incredible days of his life! You have a unique eye that enables you to be creative and powerful with your photographs. You are an artist and you surpassed what I had even hoped for (and I’m Type A)! I highly recommend you to all of my family and friends!!!! Thank you!

 As an event planner, I have the opportunity to work with many different photographers. I chose Aaron with VMA for my own daughter’sBat Mitzvah because he is a true artist. He captures incredible moments and his work is stellar. Aaron and his team did an outstanding job and I HIGHLY recommend him for your next special event.
