  2. #2 LA Budget Wedding Photographer

    (29 reviews)

    Symone A.

    Angela was our primary photographer and she literally saved our wedding day. She goes above and beyond her duties and made sure we got the shots we wanted. I would have given LABWP a 5 star review if it weren't for three things: 1) our 2nd photographer's work wasn't that great. Her and the groomsmen went to the photo site early and there are no photos of the groomsmen individually. There are no groomsmen group shots. I was very very disappointed about that. 2) Elle was kind of hard to get in touch with. I would email or call and she would say she never saw my emails. At times, it made my wedding anxiety spike! 3) the price was not the best. After booking with LABWP I found some equally qualified local photographers who included photo editing for the same price as my package from LABWP. That was a blow. Overall, LABWP is a solid bet. My photos came out nice.

  3. #3 The "I Do" Photography

    (22 reviews)

    Jenna C.

    Wow! Lydia was a delight to work with. She was awesome start to finish; she answered all of my pre-wedding shoot questions (the level of communication throughout the entire process - before, after, and during - was excellent), gave us her full attention the day of and really helped direct our small wedding group since we are all pretty camera shy...and the photographs she delivered were beautiful! There photos were vivid, and stunning, there were some cool black and white ones, and a good blend of artistic and candid shots and I felt like she captured the 'real us'. It was so easy to connect with her, which is so important in getting good photos. And - just trust her - there were several times where I thought to myself, "you want me to do what?!" - and then when I saw the final result, those were some of my favorite shots!

  5. #5 Pinnel Photo and Film

    (22 reviews)

    kiyomi F.

    Juan was fantastic! We had a private wedding ceremony on the beach and Juan was able (and willing!) to maneuver around, get his feet wet, climb on rocks to capture the perfect angles and make it look as though we were the only couple on the beach when in reality it was packed! Juan had great energy, very engaging and we couldn't have asked for more beautiful photos to look back on and remember our special day. We couldn't be more pleased And will definitely consider rehiring him for future occasions.

  6. #6 Studio Cline

    (23 reviews)

    Victoria K.

    We loved working with Matthew and Joana! It is so great to work with a husband and wife team that are doing what they love and know how to capture those special moments. I would highly recommend doing an engagement session with them before the wedding because it helps you learn what they are looking for and they can be familiar with your little quirks as well. They came up with great options for our engagement photo session that fit our personalities perfectly! We have received nothing but compliments from our photos and have been so pleased with everything! The photos were gorgeous and they really took the time to get all the details that were important to us!

    (29 reviews)

    David L.

    Debra did a wonderful photo shoot for me, her work is top shelf and her personality is engaging and gracious. She did a photo shoot of my guitar straps. I needed great quality professional photos for my website, product sales page and she delivered great digital content for my site. I highly recommend Debra because she spent extra time working with me and listening to my ideas. Yes, quality takes time and I am sometimes impatient but she put everything together for me in a couple of days. She also followed up promptly and took care of final edits as requested. Bottom line, she created great photos and it was a pleasure working with her.

  9. #9 Laura Ford: LA Photographer

    (20 reviews)

    Reggie E.

    ​I have traveled a lot and photography became one of my hobbies long time ago. That's why choosing a photographer for our wedding became a great challenge to me. I wouldn't say that I am very critical but I wanted all the details of the wedding to show our individuality and our own style. Most of my friends' wedding photos (hope nobody will be offended) were very similar and standard-same poses, ideas. Moreover, two months before the wedding I moved to LA and didn't have anyone to give me an advice. So I just started to search online. ​Tons of galleries were visited before I found Laura Ford. The first thing that I noticed was her use of light and tenderness of subject all combine to make some of the most breathtaking images I have ever seen. She doesn't follow always the rules of composition which add some fun and her own style to her photos. So when I saw her gallery I didn't have any doubts, I realized that this is what I had been looking for. I showed my husband and his eyes started to shine looking at her pictures.. ​We met this talented girl in a coffee shop in LA downtown. I feel people and understand if we can or can not work together very easily and Laura appeared to be a very open, friendly and easy-going person. After a couple of her questions, I understood that we have the same goal to make photos which will reflect our love and nature. ​The engagement photo shoot was included in our package. To me the result is the most important part. The photos from both our engagement and wedding were returned in an extremely timely manner and very high quality. But I also want to add how comfortable it was to work with Laura. She is such a sweet girl, very helpful, patient and understanding! At the end I had lots of requests about the pictures she published and sent to us and she did everything to make us happy. ​I hope my review will help you in such a difficult and very important decision! Because these pictures will be with you forever and are memories for you, your guests, your families, and anyone who maybe wasn't able to attend.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Laura Ford: LA Photographer

(20 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I think this question would be easier to answer if you asked what I didn't love because I love 95% of it, and that is a lot to list. Probably, the best part of my work are the people I meet while doing it. Cliche maybe, but I have nothing that tops it! From brides and grooms who hire me, to their parents, siblings, and college roommates (all who I meet at their wedding), I thoroughly love getting to spend a day with them and having a lot of great moments! Each and every wedding I walk away from at the end of a job, I am overjoyed by the outpouring of love, the devotion of friends, or the killer dance moves! It is never nothing. There is always at least something that makes my heart leap a little higher and reminds me of the wonderful world of human stories I am surrounded by each day.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I graduated with a high-level industrial design degree and found that I didn't really love the work so I started looking for a career that was both creatively stimulating and where I felt I could make people smile. I think I nailed it.
