    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.

    We had Jose as our photographer last weekend at the wedding. He was prompt and very easy to work with. We got over 1000 photos in a thumb drive at the end of the event. There are many good pictures that we are still going through the list to pick them out. Thanks so much Jose and Elle! I would definitely recommend LABWP to anyone!

    Our photographer was Alexandra. She was very nice to work with. She was able to accommodate our special requests and the photos were of good quality and creative. We are satisfied with the results, given the price we paid. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good budget photographer. Thank you for capturing our special day!

    Your photographer was prompt and covered the wedding very well. I have only one complaint the cross behind the bride and groom was not always straight nor was the background always straight. On the whole he did a very good job. Dixie Aschbrenner PS The price was right.

    I cannot say enough good things about every aspect of this experience. Elle was so helpful and sweet when talking/emailing back and forth, and Alexandra, our photographer, did such an amazing job! She was so sweet and fit right in with our crowd. She captured a large number of posed pictures as well as a whole lot of candid shots. The photo's pretty much "tell the story" our day! The photo's were easily accessible not long after our wedding! The website to view them on is really easy to use. I would beyond recommend LA Budget Wedding Photographers for your wedding photo's!

    Our photos came out great, especially considering the venue wasn't photo-friendly because of dim lighting and lack of good spaces for posed photos. Alexandra was very accommodating and did everything without needing to be told or instructed, which allowed us to not have to think about it. Overall an excellent value and some beautiful memories that we almost didn't get captured because I thought we couldn't afford a wedding photographer. I highly recommend!!

    We received great service, great product and great deals. Price is not always a guarantee with photographers and we are both pleasantly surprised with our very professional beautiful pictures and even our relatives used our pictures as holiday photos. We paid for two photographers so we could have bride and groom getting ready pictures and also a videograper and received all of the photos taken for a fraction of the price of my friends weddings and some of them were horribly surprised with their photos. Both photographers were plesant and professional. Some of our wedding pictures are posted on their Facebook page.

    Photographer arrived ahead of time and was very nice and accommodating. However we were a little disappointed with the end result. Her attention to detail was off in our posed shots, mainly bad positioning of our bodies, hands, heads. Some faces were blocked by others in group photos, many back of head shots, many shots directly into the light, and many dark or blurry photos. Would have liked more group/couple shots of guests. Her ideas for great pictures were there but were just poorly executed.

    Excellent work! Friendly service. she didn't leave until we were all satisfied that we had all the shots we might want for memories. We're having a bit of trouble figuring out how to download to a CD for transport to a printer and how to choose a specific shot for home printing. Easily resolved, I'm certain.

    I am very pleased with the overall experience, Alexandra was professional, she showed up early and was ready with shots in mind before we even started taking group shots. The photographs were beautiful and I feel that she went above and beyond what was asked of her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great photographer.

I thank your company a thousand times over for making the most beautiful photo memories that I can have to cherish the rest of my life. Thank you, Gloria Angeles, CRNA MS

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our clients are busy with work and planning their wedding. Most of our consultations are done over phone and email so the bride and groom don't have to take time out of their busy schedule to meet with us. After a couple decides to hire us, we email a contract. Both the contract and a deposit are required to hold a date. On the wedding day one of our awesome photographers captures amazing images for the couple. The best part - the bride and groom receive all the images before the end of the night!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Of course! All of our photographers have been shooting for years but there is always more to learn. Whether it's new poses or new lighting, we routinely attend photo workshops and classes.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
LA Budget Wedding Photographer is the premier budget wedding photographer in Los Angeles specializing in photojournalism. We strive to keep our pricing simple. Have questions? Feel free to call us!

How did you get started doing this type of work?
We decided to offer an alternative to expensive studios for couples who are on a budget. All of our photographers have years of wedding experience and run their own studios. When they have open dates, they love photographing our amazing clients and their weddings, birthdays, parties, quinceaneras.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We specialize in weddings. We also photograph other family events like baptisms, birthdays, reunions, and other parties. Although we will photograph portraits at these events, we are not currently available for family portrait sessions on their own. We are available for engagement portraits for wedding clients. Most of our clients plan their weddings in six months or less and want a fun wedding without spending a lot of money. Some of our couples are having a second wedding and want this one to be more casual. We believe all couples deserve the best wedding photos.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Do your research. Determine what types of photography you like. Decide on a budget. Email the photographers whose work you like who are within your budget. Most of all have fun planning your wedding!!!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How many weddings have you photographed? Do you have insurance? What type of equipment do you use and do you have back-up equipment? What happens if the photographer is ill and can't photograph our wedding? How many photos will we receive? When do we receive our wedding photos? Will we receive hi-res images? What size will those digital images be? Do we have printing rights for the photos or will we purchase prints and enlargements exclusively through you? Do you offer engagement photos? Do you offer any packages within our budget? Do you have any reviews from previous wedding clients?
