David and Bianca Photography were so kind, responsive, and easy-going. They made me feel very comfortable and I hardly even felt their presence throughout our wedding. However, they made sure to capture all the important moments I asked for.

Adam photographed my oldest Daughter’s wedding… the photos, and the service was so good… there was no doubt we would hire him again for my youngest daughters wedding as well. We were just glad he was available, because the experience of working with Adam on a Wedding day is a joy. I’ve worked in the photography industry myself for more than 20 years. I’ve seen a lot of great photographs, and I know a lot of great photographers. Adam’s work is some of the best photography I’ve ever seen… but it’s not just his extraordinary technical skills that set him apart from other top photographers, it’s his people skills. Adam is the kind of person that I would be happy to have at my daughters wedding, as a guest. He makes it easy to be photographed, his easy going manor puts people at ease, from the kids to the grandparents, and most importantly, the Bride. With just bit of simple easy direction he was able to to capture in photographs the beauty of my girls at their best. And, he handles his business as a professional, with appropriate communication, before, after, and during the wedding day. He was a pleasure to to business with. I whole-heartedly recomend Adam Levinstein Photography

Awarded Best of Zola
It was so much joy and pleasure to work with Laura for our engagement photoshoot and for our wedding day. Laura immediately put us at ease with her bubbly, friendly demeanor. Her directions for different poses were easy to follow, and her enthusiasm and excited reaction after taking a picture was infectious and engaging. She has a keen eye for picturesque backdrops and an awareness of how the lighting affects the mood of the photograph. We loved looking at the pictures she took for both occasions, especially how she captured our expressions and emotions in the moment. We felt very comfortable being affectionate in front of the camera, and she made it so much fun to take pictures in a variety of settings. She drove with us to different locations for our engagement photoshoot, and was very professional and supportive on our wedding day. We hope to work with her again to capture more of our memories in the future.

  • Starts at $1,400

Thank you for stopping by my website! My name is Yuki, and I am a photographer based in Southern California. Since I was little, I've had a camera in my hands wherever I go, and it has been my passion to photograph unforgettable moments. My influence came from my father who is a semi-pro photographer and videographer in Japan, and his journalistic photography style encouraged me to anticipate the moments and capture natural impressions. The moments I capture become the past, but what inspires me is seeing people’s reactions to the photographs I take. It is my hope that these moments become timeless. Often clients tell me that having a photo can bring back the feelings and memories of that moment, which is why I launched Yukipix Photography, LLC.

Huntington Beach, CA
  • Fine art style

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
To future couples seeking a wedding photographer, Steven is more than just a professional behind the camera; he is an artist who paints with light, capturing the beauty, joy, and love that define a wedding. We are eternally grateful for his artistry and dedication, and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in search of not just a photographer, but a true storyteller who will elevate your special day to a level of pure magic. Unfortunately we were only able to do a pre-wedding photoshoot with him and not our wedding day due to availability. But the pre-wedding pictures are truly precious because we can include our fur baby with us. Highly recommended doing a pre-wedding shoot especially if you have fur babies. The wedding day will be too hectic and it's hard to include your pets on that day. I can't thank Steven enough for his amazing skills in capture the best moments in such short amount of time. It was only 1.5 hours of photoshoot but the results are outstanding. Steven knows exactly what to do to make us comfortable to pose and capture not just the scenery but our emotions as well. We have done multiple photoshoots so we know how hard it is to pose and get good angles on your facial expressions. By far, the photoshoot with Steven is the best experience. It was so quick and enjoyable, we did not sweat or grow tired at all. Even the groom/my husband was having a good time with Steven, and you know how annoying men are when it comes to do photoshoot ;) If the groom love the photoshoot experience, you know this photographer is hella good :) Not only he's fast and precise in taking photos, his delivery time is amazingly fast. If I have to rate Steven, I'd give him 15/10 :) absolutely incredible job!

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's style of photography is immediately recognizable; soothing tones with an eye that designs a photo straight out of a movie scene. I have been so fortunate to work with her and see her in action. Her presence is one of decisive and calming energy. I have been amazed again and again at how she innovates in the moment, creating something that was hum drum into a magical or enlightening method or way of doing something. I can't recommend her enough for your wedding day and all special moments 3

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.

Cassy has that key important skill of a great photographer: how to make people feel comfortable and relaxed, while having fun! Cassy takes such beautiful pictures and all of my couples have been very happy with her. She is so friendly and. very professional. Highly recommended!

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 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!

We found GWM on Zola from the positive reviews and we couldn't be more happy we decided to work with them! The entire process was very simple and straightforward as portal they use is user friendly and organized. Day of the wedding we had Tasha and Erin, who were just absolutely fun to work and hang out with! They truly made the day so much more enjoyable. Weddings always have stressful moments and just their presence and talking with them was so calming for the both of us. There were some photos and videos that our guests captured that also included Tasha and Erin and you can tell Tasha and Erin were genuinely happy and having fun and it really shows in our photos. We received both our sneak peaks and final wedding album earlier than we expected and were blown away by our photos! The composition of very shot looks intentional and balanced while capturing so much emotion and movement. Going through our entire album truly feels like reliving every minute of our special day.

Simply cannot recommend and blow the horn loud enough or long enough for the mastery that is Jean Marshall. Facing a nearly unruly crowd of excited and well meaning but utterly nailing jello to a tree disconnected from reality, she somehow calmly, coolly (Clint Eastwood got nothing on her..) shepherded cats and created a spectacular flow of heartfelt images that will not only stand the test of time, but are treasured daily.

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.

My wife and I just got married on New Year’s Day and Zack did our photos for us.

Erin is hands down the absolute best! From the moment we booked her she made every minute of our engagement and wedding feel special and as stress-free as possible. Erin is extremely responsive and professional, but also brings a sense of fun and personalization to the table, which we greatly appreciated. Our engagement and wedding photos are absolutely stunning and we feel very grateful we have these photos to cherish for the rest of our lives. She exceeded all expectations with her perfect combination of candid and classic posed photos. Our families were blown away when they saw our wedding photos- they can't wait to order prints! In addition to her excellent work, Erin herself adds so much positivity and thoughtfulness to the entire experience. Our families and friends fell in love with her and were ecstatic to have her as a part of our intimate wedding. I really can't say enough about Erin's amazing work, level or professionalism and organization, and the amount of kindness and thought she'll put into capturing your entire wedding experience. Our wedding would not have been the same without Erin. We can't wait to book her again to capture our lives' next big adventure!

For us, it is all about documenting your day as it unfolds. We are believers that the best photographs come from letting everything flow. We don't believe in interrupting special moments to get a safe (posed) photo. On the contrary, we capture all moments: the fun, the crazy, the unexpected. We will get your dad in tears when he sees you in your wedding gown, and will also take your nephew in the middle of a tantrum. All that is part of your story. When you see your photos in 5 years, you will remember how your special day FELT and not only how it looked. You don't have to worry about photos, you just have to enjoy your day at the fullest.

Fernanda at Eyeblink is a total professional and she knows exactly how to give you space to enjoy to the moment and capture it as it's happening. We organized some portraits with family and friends but mostly she documented our wedding as it truly unfolded. When I look back at our pictures, I'm immediately transported to that exact moment and feel all the incredible feelings all over again. I couldn't be happier with her work. Highly recommend!

We are Nadia & Gunnar. We love being outside. We met during our early years in college on our school swim team and had a few photography classes together. It was through our mutual love of photography that we started dating.  Fast forward 9 years we are now married!!!   We are both passionate with two diverse backgrounds: Nadia in fine art and Gunnar in journalism/documentary film making. When it comes to shooting we feel we are blessed to be able to pursue what we love together. We are all about what’s real; capturing life’s small (and large!) moments.

As a wedding photographer myself, I have high and clear expectations when it comes to photography. Nadia & Gunnar are my go-to photography team when I need to hire a second photographer. I have the unique experience and privilege of hiring them again and again. I never have to worry about a thing when they are on my team. Both individuals are reliable, consistent, and creative. They always show up early. They are constantly pushing their craft and trying to learn new things. They are extremely detail oriented so couples never have to worry about looking their best. Quiet in nature, Nadia & Gunnar are a calming support system on what is otherwise a chaotic day. I trust them completely with my couples and with my couples' loved ones.

Planning a wedding during COVID was HARD, but working with Belinda was by far the easiest and most rewarding part. From having to move dates multiple times, to our venue actually permanently closing just months before our event, Belinda has been the backbone of our marriage experience. 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. She is funny, personable, has a wonderful husband helper, and the know-how to get the job done. My husband and I are not photogenic, but she made us look excellent with great direction and patience.

I am a small-town girl originally from Northern California. I began photographing the world around me at age 16 and went on to study film photography at my local Community College in my hometown and took almost every class they offered (I still shoot film to this day!). I officially started my business in 2011 and I have been serving Southern California for the last ten plus years with award-winning services.

Awarded Best of Zola
I found Amy Captures Love through WeddingWire. After a few messages and phone calls, I narrowed it down to Amy because her photos look so natural and authentic and each photo she took has life and sweet moments in them that no other photographers was able to capture. After a few phone calls, and messages, my then fiance and I chose her because she was very professional, timely and set realistic expectations for us. One other thing I also considered was that Amy has worked a lot with families with little children & babies. This was part of our deciding factor because there were a few kids and toddlers that will be at our wedding and I wanted a photographer that knew how to work with children. Our first session with her was our engagement photo shoot and she made each posing moment comfortable and not awkward at all. When it came to our wedding day, everything exceeded our expectations!! She had a timeline and she made the whole process so easy! I'm part Filipino so I had a lot of family and family categories(cousins, aunties, etc.) to go through and she was able to organize everything and make it smooth, easy, and flawless-just what it should be for any bride on her wedding day. Her price point is reasonable and realistic to what you're getting. I have nothing but praises for Amy. When the time comes for our family to expand, I'll definite work with her again!! Choose Amy and you will not regret it. It's been about a year and a half and my family still talks about our wedding photos!

Kay creates magic. She is absolutely amazing! We were thrilled to work with her for both our engagement and wedding photos. She is super professional, friendly, fun and such a pleasure to collaborate with. It is clear to see the care and dedication she puts into her work and into the relationships with her clients. She was a HUGE advocate for us on the day of our wedding to ensure we got photos we wanted when we wanted them. During our time with her, she guided us every step of the way, and made us both feel so comfortable. We will forever be grateful for the beautiful moments Kay captured of our special day. I vividly remember several candid moments during our wedding & ceremony where I thought to myself "I would love to keep a snapshot of this memory forever." When we got our photos back, I was brought to tears of joy, as Kay captured those exact candid moments and they were even more beautiful than I remembered.

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.

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

Amazing. From start to finish. Ashley leads with her heart first, and it’s very rare to work with people who look at their job from that perspective. My wedding day had some interesting curve balls and she jumped right in to help far beyond taking our photos. We loved working with her- she is like family!

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! You don’t have to worry about a thing but just go with the flow and have fun (unless you have an idea you would love to do then let’s do it!).

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.

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!

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!

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.
