I have nothing but positive things to say about this group of young men! They were so professional, prompt, polite and the work product was perfect. We booked them on a 2-day project - both video and photos- that needed a 24-hour turnaround for Day 1. Not only did they meet these deadlines, they went above and beyond in terms of the final work product. I will definitely hire them again for future life events and I'm so glad I found them. You will not be disappointed!

I take on all types of creative photo shoots when I'm not shooting weddings.

Ellen was very easygoing and fun to work with for our graduation shoot! She was flexible when we needed slight changes in the plans. We had a planning call beforehand, and the photos were returned to us within a few days of the shoot. The number of photos received from her package was higher than many other photographers that we have worked with. They are of excellent quality, and we are happy with them! We highly recommend Ellen to anyone looking for an excellent photographer.

My name is Gabbie, and I'm a wedding photographer for the couples who seek a non-traditional approach to their big day. I'm a sucker for a candid moment, intimate ceremonies, and black-and-white images from the 1980s. My work is photojournalistic — I approach weddings through a documentary lens, telling the truth with beautiful and timeless imagery.

Awarded Best of Zola
We used Gabbie for our wedding in November of 2021. She was so professional and so kind. Throughout the process, she took the time to get to know my husband and I. On our wedding day she felt like a friend and was a welcome guest. As someone who is not comfortable in front of the camera, Gabbie always made the process feel effortless. I could not recommend Gabbie more. The photos turned out amazing and I am so excited to show them off forever.

Brittney Raine Photography

Santa Monica, CA
  • Editorial style

**PSA: Please inquire via website instead of through Zola!** I'm Brittney, a wedding and portrait photographer from Los Angeles. I'm a houseplant enthusiast, traveler (no place is too far), enneagram 4, binge-watcher of The Office, ice cream lover, and introvert fascinated by human emotion + connection. Photographing weddings has truly been my dream job, and I feel so honored every time I'm invited to capture intimate moments in peoples’ lives.

Awarded Best of Zola
Brittney is a gem of a photographer and a shining star of a person. She captured our wedding more beautifully than either of us could have imagined or wished for. Being photographed by her feels like hanging out with your chillest, most talented friend, who knows how to work ALL your angles. Aside from being talented and kind, she radiates the coolest, most calming vibes throughout every situation. We shot our engagement photos outside on a cold, rainy day and somehow Brittney managed to make us feel like it was warm and sunny. Throughout the course of our wedding day, she kept us calm and on schedule, making everything feel like an effortless breeze. But Brittney is so much more than a photographer. Even in the time leading up to our wedding, she was there to answer all questions and give suggestions about everything wedding related. She answers her e-mails so promptly and comprehensively, and is always willing to jump on the phone to talk it out. Brittney provided so much priceless guidance when we didn't know who else to look to. Ultimately, Brittney is the full package. I'd say triple threat, but she's much more than that. She's not only a really good photographer, but she's a really good person. TLDR; Hire Brittney, it'll be the best wedding decision you make (aside from marrying your spouse, I guess).

Betsy's eye for candid moments and storytelling has led to photographing weddings around the world. She lives for documenting life and love through the lens. Betsy looks forward to hearing from you and bringing your vision to life!

I am writing this review wayyyy too late (over 2 years after my engagement photos were taken) and it has been eating me away inside because I need to give Betsy all the love and praise she deserves. Betsy photographed our engagement photos and would have done our wedding as well if she wasn’t already booked. As a wedding planner myself, I had worked with Betsy previously and she was always so fun, easy to work with and matched my energy on every level! She gets so excited when she knows she is ‘getting the shot’ that you can’t help but get excited too. I had a very specific vision for our engagement photos and she was 100% on board to make it happen. I love the photos so much and will treasure them forever as they document a very exciting time in our lives. I absolutely love working with Betsy and will definitely be booking her again in the future!

Danielle Rouillard Photography

The best way that I can describe myself is that I am a "dog person" when I'm out and a "cat person" behind the scenes. As a digital and film photographer, I'm very interested in unique and varied light scenarios that incorporate unique backdrops and angles. I have been working as a professional photographer for over 5 years and there is not a day where I don't find myself learning something new about it, and that to me is part of the joy.

Hi there, I'm Samantha Klose a Santa Monica Wedding Photographer and I’m so excited you’re here!! I would love to share some fun facts about me! Most days you can find me in comfy yoga pants with a mug of coffee, sitting in front of my computer, hanging with my two ADORABLE dogs, while editing photos. People often refer to me as fun and silly, with a big heart! The things I am most passionate about in life are my beautiful daughter Victoria and my very talented husband Jay (you can find his work under Cinematography). My family is my world, without them, I wouldn’t be the human I am today. They keep me grounded (and on my toes - always)!

    I don’t really believe in personality archetypes, but I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m an INFJ, Enneagram 2w1, Type O and a Libra. If that’s gibberish to you, you're probably a better person than I am, and all you have to know is that I am a sociable person who obtains fulfillment from helping others. I’m a morning person, an embarrassing dancer, family woman, and forever learning how to live a more loving, purposeful, and sustainable life. I first picked up a camera to use as a creative outlet while studying Bioengineering at university.

    • Starts at $2,000

    Photography has always been a lifelong passion of mine, I picked up my first camera as a gift from my dad when I was 14 years old. Never in a million years would I have thought that my lifelong hobby could eventually become my career. I focused on my future, working my way through college and grad school to achieve my license to practice, but a part of me realized that I wanted to pursue a career that allowed me to go on adventures and meet a lot of new people. So in 2019, I took that risk, changed my hours from full time to part time and put more focus on my photography. I booked my first gig later that year and have never looked back.

    Randall is amazing! We worked with him for our engagement photoshoot and he was our wedding photographer. He was so easy to work with and so thoughtful. I feel like he really takes the time to make sure his work is in line with each couple’s aesthetic and I love that about him. It was the easiest decision during my wedding planning to hire Randall. I can’t wait to work with him again in the future.

    I’m Adam—a Boston native who’s now roaming around California photographing everything I see. When I’m not behind the camera you can usually find me in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes, sipping a dirty martini with friends, jamming to Taylor Swift in the car, or taking my rescue pup Ollie to the park or on long neighborhood walks. I got my first film camera when I was 8, and it was love at first sight. Capturing your story is more than just a job for me. From destination elopements to parties of the century, I've seen it all and love every minute of a wedding day.

    Awarded Best of Zola
    We recently got married in October. Adam was not only our wedding photographer, but also took engagement photos of us earlier in the year. We could not be happier and more thrilled with his work :) Both my husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of a camera and we were both a bit nervous, especially for the engagement session. But Adam was excellent in reassuring us, walking us through the timeline and process so we would come in knowing exactly what to expect, and making us feel comfortable and have fun during the sessions. The photos we received from both the engagement session and wedding were absolutely stunning and exactly what we were looking for. They had rich, gorgeous color and he also captured candid moments and natural moments between US.
 On top of all of that, he’s incredibly prompt and detailed in his communication, which when you are preparing for a wedding, you definitely want :) TLDR — Adam is amazing and should be your photographer for any needs you may have!

    Hi I'm Carmelisse. I'm an intimate wedding & elopement photographer based in Los Angeles. I have a gift for making people comfortable and seeing the beauty in all diverse people. I want nothing more than to tell your love story right.

    Awarded Best of Zola
    PSA: Attention all future lovers, hire Carmelisse to capture your best day ever! I have been a huge fan of Carmelisse for years and have followed her in hopes and dreams to have her as our photographer for our wedding, which *fast forward* came true! To showcase her sweet demeanor, she sent us a survey to get to know us as partners and understand our vision. For our engagement shoot, she made us feel comfortable as she played music, helped us pose, and prompted us to flirt with one another to get a great shot. At the end of the night, as it was reaching golden hour in the mountains, Carmelisse brought us a bottle of champagne to toast to our love and photographed us slow dancing as the sun was setting, a core memory that we will never forget. Carmelisse exemplifies herself as an unofficial bridesmaid and I can attest to that! Personally, I did not have a wedding planner since the venue came with a day of coordinator. Leading up to the big day, I confided to Carmelisse about the order of events and details. Similar to the engagement shoot survey, she was intentional and sent us another survey to understand our wants for the wedding day. Until this day, my husband and I credit Carmelisse and her teammate, John, for keeping our timeline in order because without their professionalism we would’ve been lost. Throughout the day, Carmelisse and John kept us calm and collected with all the emotions of the day. In addition, Carmelisse handled our photo booth, which was excellent quality and our family loved the fact they could do gifs and save the photos directly on their phones. All in all, they were our hype people, our comfort, and helped us live in the moment and enjoy the best day. Carmelisse is our number-one recommendation for any occasion! She is literally an angel and a true artist in her craft. Thank you so much, Carmelisse! I will keep on preaching your brand until the end of time.

    While some photographers emphasize their gear or trendy post-processing, I take pride in subject-photographer interaction - the relation I build with clients, picking up on nuances in pose and expression while we shoot, anticipating the viewers' response - because ultimately, that's how photographs that matter to us are created. I'm a native New Yorker who found myself relocating to Los Angeles and making it my home. Wherever you'd like to have your wedding, it would be my pleasure to be your photographer.

    Awarded Best of Zola
    Stephen's style is making candids look very good. I have an issue where I don't "smeyes" (smile with my eyes) and my smile goes flat very easily. He is easy going and gently guides you in the photos so you don't feel forced or uncomfortable. And really, he is able to seamlessly capture you in the moment. I am happy I will be able to cherish those genuine moments he was able to capture for me and my husband. In addition, the standard posed photos were awesome as well. He was organized and straightforward, which I value in a time sensitive event like a wedding. All-in-all A+ for this guy.

    I'm a CA based and travel wedding photographer. I've photographed almost 200 weddings, and every single one goes by so quickly. I love my job because even though the day goes by fast, I get to find and capture those small moments, sometimes just a fraction of a second long, so they can be relived over and over in photographs. I have a photojournalistic and editorial style, plus 9 years of wedding experience under my belt, so trust me that I've got it while you are able to fully enjoy your day and be present.

    We absolutely loved working with Holly Castillo Photography on our wedding day. Holly was a delight to work with: friendly, relaxed, and knowledgeable. During the ceremony and the reception, Holly quietly and unobtrusively snapped away, capturing some truly wonderful and emotional images. When it came time for posed group and couple photos, Holly was efficient and communicated direction clearly but didn't give the air of being rushed, so everyone was able to feel at ease in what can sometimes be an awkward experience. I'm hoping not to have another wedding of my own, but I would book Holly again in a heartbeat if I did!

    Photography is my creative dream come true and it is so incredibly special to be able to capture memories that other people will love and cherish for many, many years. Around high school, I found out for myself how important these memories were. Not just the ones I was creating currently but the ones that I couldn’t get back. I would look back on these photos and think, "I remember how happy I was that day." "Aww, my little brother was so tiny then!" Or even, "What was I thinking when I wore that outfit??" These little snippets of time carried such a significance for me that I wanted other people to feel that way about their memories, too.

    Amanda was so great to work with. Her images were stunning!! But she was also communicative and helpful. She made the big day run even smoother and the couple was soo happy with their pictures.

    I set my mind and soul to this craft about 5 years ago and my heart just grew with every couple I met and every story I learned and told through my favorite medium of photography. It is the absolute best feeling being able to photograph the genuine love and happiness a couple expels through their wedding day. Nothing can beat the emotions and the charm of that. It's an honor to be able to translate those emotions onto images so people can look back through them and get back those feelings years and decades later.

    Awarded Best of Zola
    My now husband and I have been working with Fatima for the last two years, since he came across her in 2021 to capture our surprise proposal. Even in our first shoot with Fatima, we found her to be kind, fun, and committed to excellence. Given our positive experience and impression of her professionalism and outputs, we went on to work with her for our subsequent engagement shoot and another special one. Fatima listens to her clients, gets an understanding of what they're looking for, and shares her perspective and feedback to ensure that her art is in line (and beyond) your expectations. She has amazing skills in playing with light and shadows, capturing candid, but editorial likes images - our friends / family kept telling us her pictures look like they're out of a magazine! We have loved getting to know and establish a relationship with her, not simply because her work is extraordinary, but also, at a personal level - she is a warm, genuine person who truly wants to deliver the BEST for you as a client. I cannot recommend her enough and you can't go wrong in scheduling her for your next big shoot!

    My fiancè and I booked a sunrise engagement shoot with Murtaza. From the day we first reached out, Murtaza was extremely professional, kind, and quick to respond. Murtaza was very accommodating of our limited schedules, and held several calls with us before the shoot to make sure every detail would be exactly what we wanted. On the actual day of the shoot, we were nervous as we don’t like having our photos taken. Murtaza made us instantly feel at ease with his kindness and radiant positivity. He patiently worked with us to pick our best angles, but also included fun, dynamic prompts that made us forget about the camera and not look stiff. As an added bonus, within a few minutes of leaving the shooting site, Murtaza sent us a sneak peek he had already edited! We treasured these until we received the full package of edited photos, which were stunning beyond our expectations or hopes. I would highly recommend Murtaza on his qualifications as a photographer alone, but his genuinely warm personality and infectious positivity truly distinguish him from the rest. Murtaza is a gem!

    Your experience with me starts long before you step in front of my lens. I take the time and energy to get to know you & your story, so that I can capture the parts of your relationship that are authentically YOU. So that you can look back on the photos from this season of life, and feel like you're right back in that moment, feeling those same feels. To me, a perfectly posed & still photograph doesn't capture a feeling the way that a candid one can. I direct my couples to create images that are full of movement and those intimate in-between moments.

    I knew I was in great hands with Shelby the moment we first met! Working with Shelby as a fellow vendor has been nothing short of a seamless experience. She loves connecting with her couples on a personal level and makes her shoots interactive so that the couples feel comfortable and confident on camera. She has little tricks up her sleeve that creates super candid moments!! I trust her fully when I recommend her as a planner. Her attention to detail and eye for the perfect lighting make photographing with Shelby a breeze. Hire Shelby to photograph your wedding, maternity shoot, branding shoot, and more! She is a superstar!

He ran his ideas for the overall plan for the day by not only us, but the clients and other vendors to make sure all of our expectations were met. The ceremony took place in a church and Joey was very respectful of the rules in place.

That's why I choose not to pose couples, but instead prompt you to do something like "take off your shoes and run across the field" or " get inside the car and kiss everywhere except the lips". These prompts will help you feel comfortable and also help create candid images. Check out my website for more info :)

    Jarrod and his wife, Taylor, are truly a dream to work with!

Taylor gave us plenty of suggestions to pose us naturally and kept us laughing which put us at ease immediately. Jarrod was such a professional and really worked every angle and background to make it look like we spent an entire day shooting. The editing was super crisp and clean and the photos came back incredibly quickly. They far exceeded our expectations and we can’t thank them enough for giving us beautiful, lasting memories from such an important time in our lives. This couple is seriously amazing - genuine, fun, and experts at what they do!! Book them!

    We hired Nate, Vanessa & Keren to shoot our welcome party and wedding and HOLY COW they blew us away! From our first meetings over Zoom, we knew we'd made the right choice. Aside from their obviously gorgeous work, we chose them because their vibe is so down to earth, comforting, and fun. During the two parties, they were efficient and blended right in with our guests so all of our pictures felt organic, which was important to us. We opted to do half on film, half on digital and were completely speechless at how it all turned out. The cherry on top was how quickly we got our pictures back: we got the email one month after our wedding while we were on our honeymoon! So special to relive that day in that setting, and we were so impressed with that turnaround. We already know we'll be hiring this team down the road once we start a family.

    Born in the desert (AZ Baby!) and relocated to the sea. I firmly believe that a good day starts with a cup of coffee and ends with glass of red wine. I own more jewelry than I do clothes and in my opinion, too much gold does not exist. My biggest passion will always be photography. I’ve had a camera in my hands since I was a little girl – I would even set up “stylized shoots” in my family’s living room that consisted of sheets pinned to the wall, my friends and fake flowers (embarrassing, but I’m not kidding!). I strive for those editorial, Vogue-like shots, but I really live for those private, in-between moments.

    As a wedding planner, I get the opportunity to work with many photographers. BY FAR, Kristina Lee Photography is my all-time favorite! Not only does she have an artistic eye for capturing moments, but she also makes the couples feel comfortable and relaxed. Kristina also is a team player with the rest of the vendors. Her turn around time for images is like no other. The generosity of what she pours into her craft and service is admirable! Kristina is both professional and playful which clients love and trust! I have no hesitation in recommending Kristina Lee Photography. As a matter of fact, I highly encourage it! You'll have the best pictures with the most delightful photographer!

    I am a documentary wedding photographer -- I'm all about capturing real moments. In my photographs, I’m always shooting with an eye for color, light, and dynamic shadows. I integrate these technical aspects with my background in film, literature and storytelling so with every wedding, I create a series of documentary photos that recreates the authentic narrative of a day. I’m always chasing the candid, the emotional, even the un-noticed everyday details; things that make you do a double take, little moments that make your heart swell.

    Awarded Best of Zola
    Rebecca was awesome beyond words and we highly recommend her. Our wedding was non-traditional and posed some unique challenges. We threw a backyard Halloween party and surprised our guests by exchanging vows at midnight. To go along with the surprise and remain incognito, Rebecca showed up in costume as an old-timey reporter with a "PRESS" marker tucked in her hatband. She pulled the ruse off flawlessly, blending in and chatting effortlessly with our friends so that she could capture those perfectly candid and special moments throughout the night. No one appeared camera shy, no one looked awkward or directed, every last portrait was of a cherished friend at their joyous best. We had been initially concerned about our lighting conditions since the event was outdoors and at night. We couldn't go too overboard with party lights, nor did we want our photographer to be milling through the crowd with a bright flash. Rebecca laid our concerns to rest well before the event, and her expertise with low-light shooting is on display in our gallery. The photos were absolutely stunning. Some of our favorites were the amazingly touching and genuine reactions of surprise when we revealed we were getting married. We could not be happier or have asked for a better photographer experience. We'll cherish these beautiful mementos for the rest of our lives and we cannot recommend Rebecca y las otras enough.

    Tiffany is a not only an outstanding photographer but she is a genuinely kind human. I have been fortunate enough to work with Tiffany on other weddings & photoshoots (I’m a Makeup Artist) so I had no doubt that she would be shooting our wedding! She is extremely professional and always responded to questions in a timely matter. I already knew how efficient Tiffany is so I went into the day with such comfort, and I can assure you she will do the same for you! I almost feel like she was even my planner, since she had made the timeline for the day and stuck to it. We did our engagement session with Tiffany which was a great way to become more comfortable in front of the camera and learn some poses for the wedding day, she even took some good shots of our dog for our engagement session. Our wedding was a destination that was about 5 hours form LA and she was more than happy to travel. She was able to capture EVERY moment. Tiffany was great at keeping everything on time and controlled. One of the things that sets Tiffany apart form other wedding photographer’s is that her images do not look over-edited or trend based. She has a very classic and bright style of photography and looking back at all of our images years from now I know we will not be disappointed. We are so thankful for her capturing every moment from a day that goes by so quick! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Tiffany J Photography!

    I live in Long Beach with my husband, and our beautiful dog-daughter Rita. If I'm not photographing my incredible clients, I'm watching any entertainment I can, from the latest HBO shows or movie releases. But, there's nothing better than drinking a beer and laughing at some quality reality television if you ask me! I also love reading while drinking coffee in the morning, but nothing tops hanging with my friends and family, enjoying some drinks and sharing some laughs.

    My Fiancé and I got the chance to work with Kathy for our engagement pictures at Disneyland! It was extremely hot that day and super crowded, but that never even phased her. I was so impressed with her ideas of capturing us together. She has so much patience to take the time to capture the shot just right before we went on to the next site. We received our pictures in a week and we love them all, it’s extremely hard to just pick one as our favorite! Currently she offers custom albums what we can’t wait to order and have forever! We loved working with Kathy and can’t wait to see her at our wedding!

    Hi you guys, my name's Natalie, & I'm so glad you're here! I’m a joy-filled, Southern California surfer girl who is in love with capturing weddings.  My style? It’s timeless, romantic, adventuresome, & personal. I’m dedicated to capturing fine elegance + raw beauty all the while keeping it real + being authentic. Your job is to be in love & live in that excitement with each other. My job is to make it easy + enjoyable for you two to be yourselves, 100%, as I frame and capture those once-in-a-lifetime moments in a way that only my mind can. Congratulations to you both! Looking forward to getting to know each other! xx Natalie

    Natalie is the most professional, genuine, and talented wedding photographer. I promise you that you cannot and simply will not find a lovelier, more generous, or more brilliant person to help you sidestep stress and make the wedding planning process and wedding day a joy. At our wedding, three different people asked me if I'd later share her contact information with them for whenever they got married. Just think about that for a moment: three people were so blown away by Natalie's warmth, energy, and beautiful, bubbly personality that they would hire her on the spot without having yet seen her stunning work and even though they weren't engaged. Natalie's smile brightens up an entire room, and she has a truly remarkable way of making everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. She'll make you laugh, she'll keep your energy up, she'll capture the moments you dreamed would one day hang on your walls, and most of all, she will make you feel like your day, your marriage, and your love are the center of the entire world. This gift of her presence and love is extraordinary, and I promise you that it extends beyond anything you could ever hope or expect to receive from any wedding vendor. I cried when she sent us our photos because they are so profoundly beautiful and so full of the true emotion that she naturally drew from even the most reserved of our family members. Every photo was so natural and full of light and joy. Natalie has so much talent, and if you're one of her brides you'll quickly realize how lucky you are to have someone care so deeply about you and about capturing your special day. Before our wedding, Natalie spoke with me over email and on the phone, sent a thoughtful questionnaire to help us articulate our aesthetic and photography hopes, sent a quick engagement gift, and even checked in over text to make sure I was doing well the week before the wedding. After the wedding, she sent cute thank you gifts and GORGEOUS photos (you will love yours too!). But my favorite memory will always be from our wedding day when she took a moment to dance with my shy 5 year old nephew and draw him out of his shell so he could enjoy the party. The huge smile on his face will always be one of my most precious moments of our wedding day. My nephew, like so many of our guests, still ask about Natalie all the time. It was a pleasure to work with Natalie and to get to know her, and I hope you too will be fortunate to experience Natalie's light, love, and unparalleled talent.

I'll get right to it: The very last thing I want is for you to think of your experience with me as a "photoshoot." I think that posed "prom" photos are totally lame and reflect absolutely nothing unique about you or your partner. After all, you are not actors pretending to be "in love," so why should your images reflect that? At the core, your images should ultimately remind you of why you fell in love in the first place. This is what we're celebrating!

    The kind of work I do within the wedding photography genre is very distinct - every image stands on its own as a thoughtful composition as if from a cinematic art house film or high-end commercial/editorial shoot. My color grading is immediately identifiable and unique - developed through years of studying color theory - uncommon today in a sea of 'presets' that other photographers purchase on the internet for they have no knowledge of how to build their own. My compositions are often quirky, surprising, different. I always attempt to show a point of view that's uncommon and fascinating to the viewer.

She had a very calming and easy-going presence that made it a fun time to get our photos. Ahead of the wedding day itself, she again met with us to discuss photo options.
