Adam was such a joy to work with! I was extra picky choosing a photographer because I wanted our day captured beautifully. Adam’s portfolio was beautiful and he was so communicative and responsive during the booking/planning process. He was a true professional and guided myself and my husband (along with our wedding party and families) effortlessly through the process to capture the perfectly ‘posed-but-candid’ photos I wanted. We got our sneak peek photos SUPER fast and they’re absolutely stunning. The response from family and friends has been glowing- seriously everybody is SO impressed. I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos. We will absolutely book with Adam again for any future photo shoot needs!! Thanks again, Adam!!

We chose to do our engagement shoot at The Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Oleg was on time and made the experience so much fun. I am very camera shy but he made us both feel very comfortable and captured candid moments of us purely having fun. On our wedding day, Oleg and his team arrived and conquered it all! They were a joy to work with and soooo organized. They created a 1-min movie-quality video for us the next day and returned some photos as a sneak-peek.

Morgan Wiltse Photo Co.

5.0

San Clemente, CA
  • Classic style
  • Starts at $2,300

My love for photography began as young as 12 but the passion came as soon as I welcomed my first son, Liam. Motherhood is a busy busy life and the camera keeps all the memories fresh. I love, love. Nothing makes me smile bigger than a surprise engagement, or the welcoming of a new baby. I really try to get to know my clients and visualize their lives before I even attempt to capture their story - because that story is what MAKES the shot!

Awarded Best of Zola
From our engagement to our wedding, Morgan made the photo planning easy, she truly listens to your wants and your goals. I went into my wedding not having an absolute clear vision but after talking and getting to know my husband and I, she brought it all to life. She made everyone so comfortable through out the process and the fun we had really showed in each photo. Very talented photographer and really knows how to capture each moment beautifully. Everything was above and beyond and I will continue to recommend her to everyone!

Ashley Strong Photography

5.0

San Clemente, CA
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,800

I am Ashley Strong Smith, the very passionate, sincere and grateful soul behind these very time capsules witnessed within this space. Although I’ve been shooting for over a decade, ASP launched full time in April of 2015 as an all encompassing business and became a Corporation - Strong Smith, Inc. in 2018. Since then, I’ve been beyond blessed to : - Document nearly 450 sessions - Document over a 100 weddings - Receive almost 250 FIVE STAR reviews on multiple platforms - Published nearly two dozen times

While Ashley and I attended the same high school, I originally reconnected with her after I saw that she photographer another high school friend’s wedding. I started following her photography on Instagram well before I met my now husband. When my husband and I began dating and I knew I would marry him one day, I knew I had to have Ashley be our photographer. Not even a few weeks after being engaged I reached out to Ashley to connect and discuss hiring her as our wedding photographer. And honestly, it was the best decision we made for our wedding other than marrying each other. Both my husband and I are very camera shy and hate having our photos taken, but Ashley made us so comfortable it was like we were hanging out and catching up with a close friend rather than having someone take pictures of us. Her bright and natural photography style is exactly what we were looking for in a society where highly edited and photoshopped styles are popular. From our engagement shoot in the San Bernardino Mountains to our wedding at Lake San Marcos, Ashley embraced us and the natural scenes around us which is exactly what we wanted with an outdoor wedding in November. She worked diligently with us on our timeline to make sure we wouldn’t miss the sunset with our winter wedding and on the day of the wedding she made sure we were happy and as relaxed as we could be, that we had a drink in our hands post ceremony and even brought me an extra slice of cake after our cake cutting. Not even a week after the wedding she had sneak peak of photos ready for us to look at. There is not a picture she took and presented to us that we don’t love. I would love for her to photograph every major moment in our married life together and highly recommend her.

I couldn’t say more about Dan and Tyler. We booked them for our wedding photography and videography and they were amazing to say the least. Not only were they reasonably priced but they made our special day exactly what we wanted. From handling the entire photography process, they made our day very smooth and manageable. On the other end once our day was over we received our preview so quickly with amazing shots and our video and the rest of our photographs within such a timely manner that we were shocked when they sent everything. I couldn’t recommend them more and plan on using them for any other photography needs we will have in the future.

Hello. I'm Steven. Starting my photography as a hobby in 2014 and becoming a professional in 2017, I have serviced over 80 weddings at diverse locations in my career. Throughout 3 years of my profession, I have chosen the path of fine art photography, which embraces natural colors, rich content, and especially real-time emotions. Contrary to traditional documentary photographers, my goal is to capture every special moment of your wedding day by praising the beauty through lighting and composition.

Awarded Best of Zola
Steven helped our friends to take their engagement photos, and my now husband and I were so impressed of his style, so when it was our time to look for the photographer for our big day, Steven was our first choice and the only photographer that we wanted to work with. Steven is friendly and easy to work with, and he is so good at capturing photos with natural lights and interactions between people. My husband and I was in a budget, but Steven was so understandable and willing to custom the package for us so that we could be within our budget :) On our wedding day everything got delayed, so we almost missed our wedding party photo session… But Steven did a great job and worked super fast to take photos for us and the photos were so great. All our friends and family love the photos that he took for us. We highly recommend Steven to everyone!

  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $4,500

Hi I’m Abby! been told all my life that I have an artistic flair and a gift for creativity, but that’s not the only reason why I started my career in wedding photography. I’m the biggest romantic and feel things deeply — in my photography there’s no detail in your connection that goes unnoticed. The little winks and smirks that silently set your soul on fire, the quirks that stay hidden to everybody else but you, and the parts of them that somehow make you fall in love with them even more… They’re how I tell stories because I know that in time, those are the things you’ll cherish the most.

Abby made our day unforgettable. She had this ease about her that calmed me throughout the day. Anything I wanted to make sure we included she made it happen - even the smallest detail that I had forgotten about she remembered. She drove me up a mountain for first look photos. That right there is dedication. Not only was she supportive as a professional, it was great to have her there as a friend. I would recommend this amazing photographer to anyone. The quality of her work shows through her photos and her work ethic. She had sneak peak photos emailed to me the literal next day. Abby is an absolute wonder, and I will forever be grateful she was there to capture the most perfect moments of the most beautiful day. Thank you, Abby!

Mission Viejo, CA
  • Fine art style
  • Starts at $3,500

I have always loved story-telling. I loved writing stories as a kid (I even tried to get a book published at age 12) and I love writing my own D&D campaigns now. Through storytelling, I see the paths laid ahead for our heroes, and beautiful adventures that need to be documented. Through storytelling, I started to see the pictures. And from these pictures, I began to photograph. I am crazy passionate about your day. I want to help you capture those moments. I want you to have the most amazing time, and the happiest memories. I want you to have photos so good that you can’t wait to show it off to the people you know, and even those you don’t.

We were so lucky to find Cassy to photograph our wedding! From the beginning, she was professional, quick to respond, and brought the energy. During our initial meeting, Cassy listened to my vision and understood exactly what I was going for. We wanted a themed, nerdy wedding, and funny enough, she was also a fan of the theme we had! She was so helpful through the process, especially with the added stress of postponements with COVID. On the day of our wedding, she provided so much guidance with posing, lighting, background, etc. to make sure all the photos turned out the best they could be. Lastly, her photos are beautiful! We love the bright and light look, so if that’s what you’re looking for, you’re in the right place!

Awarded Best of Zola
Marisa and Tim were absolutely amazing! We had originally planned for them to photograph our micro wedding in December 2020. However, due to Covid protocols, that was not possible. Because of this, they were incredibly accommodating and we had a newlywed session in November 2021 at the LA Arboretum. Since it was our first photoshoot, my husband and I were nervous. Throughout the entire process, Marisa maintained communication, was super helpful with providing tips, and calmed our nerves! The photoshoot was so much fun! Marisa and Tim made us laugh the entire time, always keeping in mind the details that were important to us. If you’re looking for photographers who will partner with you while also creating beautiful photographs, we highly recommend them!

My husband and I aren’t big on photos, but she made us feel comfortable and relaxed by playing fun music while she shot, and she was so good during the ceremony/reception of making it seem like she wasn’t even there! We loved how our photos turned out and we will cherish them forever!

Hi there! I'm Zack, a wedding photographer from Orange County, Ca. Ever since I was a young kid studying (and sketching!) bugs in the backyard, I've had a fierce love for the details in the little moments of this crazy life. I got my first "real" camera when I was 12 and was instantly hooked. As I grew, so did my passion and ability to translate those moments into memories. I had the chance to help photograph a wedding when I was 17 and wow! What an experience! That night, I looked through the photos and fell in love. I knew that capturing the moments that would mean something to someone for the rest of their life was where I belonged.

Thanks to Zack, my husband and I have pictures that stop time forever. He also made my very shy younger brothers feel comfortable and even helped the 5 year old get his shoes on. Having Zack be our photographer just felt like having more family around on our special day.

My happy place is anywhere outside of my comfort zone, but a nature-filled walk chatting up good company is a close second. If I’m not planning my next trip, or dreaming up something to cook for dinner, I’m outside trying to meet my Fitbit step goal. (10k club, anyone?) My latest leap of faith? A cross-country move to sunny Orange County, California. This isn’t the first time I’ve packed up and jetted away from my home state of Maryland: Germany, Singapore, and South Carolina make the list too.

She worked with us, and provided SO much additional support and experience through the process. We ended up having a wedding photoshoot in a nature center recommended to us by her and I couldn't be happier with the results. She responds extremely quickly, and will provide you with ANY information you seek. Literally. She is like an encyclopedia of wedding knowledge.

My parents don’t have professional photos of their wedding. It’s ironic being that I photograph weddings for a living. Long story short, my Grandfather hired a distant cousin as their wedding photographer, his customer service was beyond subpar and pricing was vague. He eventually went out of business and apparently took the photos down with him. It’s a sad story but it is something that fuels my mission as a wedding photographer. To give my clients a memorable experience from the first Zoom meeting to the delivery of their gallery and beyond.

We highly recommend Nick for all of your photography needs. We had an intimate wedding on a friend's balcony, Nick did a great job of getting photos of everyone in the family in different settings throughout the day. He had great ideas and even had us walk down the street to an open lot and got some great outdoor/natural photos. The most special photos we have are the ones in which he truly captured the emotion of the moment, we will cherish them for our lifetime. Thanks Nick!!

Hey there! My name is Katie and I am a part-time photographer and small business owner. My veins are filled with iced coffee and, most of the time, all I want to do is dance. Unlike most, I began my photography career later in life during my college days where I discovered film photography. I spent countless hours in the dark room developing photographs in chemicals and I loved every minute of it. I would describe my photography style as bold and true to color. My favorite part of photography is capturing moments that tell a story so that no matter how much time passes, you can go back and relive that story over and over again.

Kathrine is fun and easy to work with. She has a great eye, and is excellent with clients. Highly recommend her services for those that are looking for quality photography.

Hi and welcome! I'm Madeleine and am so glad that you've connected with my work. I focus on bringing you a fun, relaxed photography experience so that you can keep your attention on what's most important... enjoying the celebration with each other and your closest loved ones! You will always be treated like a friend and a client, meaning I will be your partner throughout your entire wedding experience. I strive to create a fun, laid back environment that will help produce the most authentic photos for your Southern California or destination wedding. I'd love to hear more about you, your partner, and your vision, so feel free to get in touch!

Madeleine was hands down the best wedding photographer I could have ever asked for. She is amazing with communication and she made sure that my husband and I's big day was both magical and stress free. She helped coordinate our first look, a special and timeless moment that we will never forget. I did not know what to expect for our first look and I was really nervous thinking about it, but she knew exactly how to set it up so that it was the most genuine and perfect moment of my life. She also did an outstanding job working alongside our wedding florist, as well as with our day of coordinators. We were able to get some amazing photos on top of a mountain/hill at our venue overlooking a valley. Despite the flowers for our half circle arch being situated all the way down at the ceremony area, Madeleine and our florist were able to work together to bring them up to the hill and do a coordinated photoshoot for us there. I loved seeing our gorgeous flower arch in two different locations at our venue. Everything about Madeleine Collins Photography is so professional, from the planning before the big day, to receiving all of the edited photos afterwards. The photos came out so beautifully and she did such a great job bringing out all the right colors and lighting. She knew exactly how to capture the lighting and our expressions. If you're still in between photographers and deciding, I can guarantee that you will not regret choosing Madeleine.

I became a wedding photographer in a not-so-usual way. I remember telling my girl scout leader that I actually hated any arts & craft we did. Fast forward to many years of sports, and the pivotal moment of entering college, I switched to photography one semester in after realizing my current Marine Biology major was not for me and decided that was where I was headed. It landed me in wedding photography after a few classmates asked me to shoot their weddings. And since I’m a romantic and all…it was a perfect fit from the start. Something you should know about me is that I love all people, deeply. “Love your neighbor” is what I strive for.

Katie is one of the amazing few photographers I refer in Souther California. Her unique style and professionalism make her stand out above the rest. I love working with Katie any chance I get!

I am so excited that you stopped by because that means you are looking for your PERFECT PHOTOGRAPHER!

I make it personal for you which means not only will I come to your day with great ideas for posing, but I will work with the relationship and chemistry that you two have to make it unique to you!

Larissa was first to mind when our family made vacation plans to Yosemite. I knew I wanted to capture our Family in the best way possible and to have beautiful images to look back on and remember our trip. With the California fires, we had to redirect our travel plans and Larissa was extremely accommodating. We ended up in Palm Springs and she followed us through the day, capturing our family outing and backyard pool play - in the BEST way possible. She was calm which helped me keep my stress levels down and she was so playful with my kids, ensuring we got some great photos of us all! Thanks Larissa!

Hello! My name is Anatoliy Kim, and I’m the founder and head filmmaker and photographer at Anatoliy K Weddings. I’ve been described as a hopeless romantic, but I just can’t help it. There’s something truly magical that happens at weddings. The pure, intimate expressions shared between bride and groom. The eternal vows. The support of lifelong friends and family members. Every single fleeting moment makes up the most important day of your life. At Anatoliy K Weddings, we capture those emotion-fueled moments so you can treasure them forever.

We loved Anatoliy! Anatoliy took photos for our wedding at an outdoor venue. We spoke multiple times before the wedding to coordinate and set expectations, and he was very responsive and friendly. On the day of, he knew our wedding schedule better than us and kept us on schedule! Most of all, his photos were amazing. My partner and I have had photoshoots in the past, and by far Anatoliy’s photos looked the most professional and clean, and he really knew how to capture the moment. We also appreciate Anatoliy’s creativity in suggesting poses because me, my partner, and our entire family can be really awkward when taking photos… but all of our photos looked very natural and beautiful. We could tell Anatoliy loved what he did and it really showed in the final product. Thank you Anatoliy!

Aimee was just a joy to have along our wedding journey. Everything she has sent so far has been breathtaking, I can't stop staring. Not only did she make our photos flawless, she is a true hype girl and brings out natural smiles from the most awkward humans. She also took the time to let my baby niece use her camera to take blurry photos of the floor and she was mesmerized at 3 hours past her bedtime. I will be using her for all my future photo needs!

    Born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. With several years of photography experience, I fell in love with love and photographing every aspect of it. To me, a photograph is meant to show movement. Movement in a photo tells a story with a million different interpretations, depending on the eye. Dancing in the kitchen, kissing, crying, laughing... there’s always a beautiful story to be told.

    Cailend is an absolute joy to work with! She has been part of our journey since day 1 and made us feel welcome and at home. She knows which angles are the best and the way she edits all photos and gives them a moody and aesthetic vibe is just so dreamy! We will use her for all future photoshoots moving forward. Simply the best!

She even sent us some sneak peeks later that night so the couple could post them. We received the link to the finished album so fast!

    I was always camera shy when I grew up and never thought myself to be so close to one in my story.​ I was introduced to the camera through a friend who encouraged me to capture everyday moments with it. The camera inspired me in a way to tell the stories of families, friends, and lovers. I was able to dive deeper into lifestyle photography with great mentoring and guidance throughout my career and it allowed me to grow to become a storyteller.
