Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!

We are so happy with our wedding photos (all 351 of them) and our wedding video. Our family and friends commented on how they watched it over and over again and how Jonas and Tatiana captured a feeling of love at the event. They came to our venue in Monterey and scouted the venue before our event, so that on day of the wedding they were very prepared to capture our day. They were responsive to all our questions and took in consideration all the things we wanted in our video. We just absolutely love how it turned out. Thank you guys :)

I hired Jason to photograph a 50th wedding anniversary party and the process couldn’t have been easier. Jason was quick to send a quote/samples of his work and answer any questions I had. He showed up on time and was very professional. The party was Sunday afternoon and by Wednesday morning I had access to all the photos he took. Once I finish going through them and let him know which we choose he will do any touch-up necessary and get them back to me. His pricing was very reasonable, the pictures look great, and his service professional. I wasn’t sure if we should hire a photographer but am so glad we did; the photos will provide a wonderful memory of a wonderful celebration Thank you Jason!

Hok and his assistant Ryan were amazing. They captured so many photos in so many different sets of scenery. I can't WAIT to see how they all came out. They showed me a few on their cameras and I nearly burst into tears! Even at the reception they continued capturing very artistic photos of our rings, and reception decor. They even recreated our ceremony setting (which had a gorgeous chandelier) and took photos of me and my husband at night in a complete different way than we were photographed during the actual ceremony. I can't stress enough how amazing Hok's artistic vision his. He was amazing! And I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to have a dedicated, fun-loving, hard working photographer on their wedding day!

Kyer is a fantastic photographer - his photos speak for themselves! I've had several photo shoots with him and each time we have a lot of fun and I always feel supported and at ease, and I'm always thrilled by the result. He is encouraging, skillful, playful, and intuitive. He took photos at my friend's wedding, also, and they turned out great - really stunning! Highly recommended!

Looking for a wedding photographer on line, my fiancé and I were drawn to the pictures taken by Lorinda Keller, the owner of 831images. Amazingly, she was available on our wedding day. All of her reviews raved her praises. All the reviews were spot on, Lorinda more than exceeded our high expectations. Due to prior changes in our wedding day schedule Lorinda accommodated us by splitting our day into two sessions so that we could get all the photo coverage we wanted but still stay within our budget. This allowed us to have photos of our ceremony and with our guests. We did not have to disappear and leave our guest to get our couple photos. Lorinda made a special trip to return later so that we could do our couple shots after our guests had left and during the ideal sunset lighting. Getting everything we wanted within our limited budget was an exceptional gift. Lorinda also surprised us with returning with printed pictures from the ceremony. She even presented us with a beautifully framed photo capturing our happy moment. Everyone was so shocked that she had a chance to do all of this for us. She was even professionally prompt on an extreme high traffic and no parking day in Carmel. From the second we met Lorinda we felt at ease. Her delightful personality was a joy to be around. My groom and I, were having a small intimate wedding due to our shyness about being the center of attention. We were expecting that having our wedding photos taken was something we would have to suffer through. Boy were we wrong. After two hours of taking photos on the beach we could not stop talking about how much fun we had with Lorinda. She made the experience an unexpectedly enjoyable time that we will always treasure. Lorinda had an amazing ability to give her subjects directions while still keeping a light hearted vibe to achieve the premium result. Not only did Lorinda put us and our guests at ease but she also had great energy around our dogs. Our two Belgian Malinois are very suspicious of new people, especially if they are holding objects like a camera. In order to have them part of our ceremony we thought we would have to put up with lots of barking. Lorinda was so terrific with our dogs that they never barked at her. She was also very gracious about maneuvering around the guest dogs in attendance. She went above and beyond in getting special shots with the dogs that lived at the venue for a special gift for us to give the home owners. It takes an exceptional talent for a stranger to put dogs at ease in order to take their photo. We highly recommend Lorinda for shots of your furry friends, in addition to all your professional photo needs. If you want to have fun while getting direction so you get the most flattering, unique and artistic photos then call Lorinda.

Laura and Rachel are an AMAZING mother-daughter photography team. I had the pleasure of meeting them when they photographed my sister's wedding at Corral de Tierra Country Club in April. By the end of the night, they were like part of the family! They made us feel so comfortable and are ubelievably talented. Shortly after my sister's wedding I asked Laura Herndandez Photography to be on the preferred vendors list for my work (Talbott Vineyards). Together we created the dream wedding shoot and they PERFECTLY captured our image. Not only are they amazing photographers, but they also are amazing people, friends, planners and wedding professionals! They have amazing ideas and I can't wait to have them capture my special day one day! :)

Amanda was amazing! She photographed our small wedding in Carmel Valley this past Halloween. Before our event, I sat down with her and we discussed which types of shots I'd like her to capture: getting ready, walking down the aisle with my dad, the first kiss, family photos, dancing, photos around the gorgeous property, eating and celebrating with family. She took the time to edit each photo, individually, making each one the best they could be. I appreciate the time she took to make us feel comfortable, and when she took direction, as we are not models and didn't necessarily know how to stand/act. The moments she captured were perfect and we will cherish them forever. Thanks again Amanda!

Carolyn has a great gift in photography. I love her photos so much I use her very every photo opportunity I get. She did my wedding of 150 people and 20 in the wedding party and did it all on her own and was great at directing it all. It as so valuable to have somebody who could organize and manage the entire thing without me needing to stress about it. All the photos that she did were so amazing and I loved every single one of them. I also have had her do my maternity shoot, newborn photos and family pictures. Everytime she does an amazing job and I get so many beautiful photos that look like they belong in magazines. I highly recommend her to everybody that I know are looking for a photographer. She is amazing and has a special talent that very few do.

Paulina is a dream come true photographer. She is AMAZING and very talented. I couldn't ask for a better photographer. My wedding photos are beautiful & she captured so many wonderful details & moments. All of my guests raved about her great personality & how easy it was to take pictures. I met her through this app. She definitely listens & takes in all suggestions. I'm very camera shy, but with her it was easy for me to smile & be me. I can't thank her enough for capturing me & my husband, my family & friends in such beautiful lighting & making us look so wonderful. And Forever More Photography is worth every penny. You will not be disappointed. I am 100% satisfied.

Lynna did our maternity photo shoot and I was very, VERY happy with the end result. It was hard to pick my favorite because I had so many. Personally, I wouldn’t say I am very photogenic, and a lot of times I look awkward in photos, but Lynna really knows how to capture my good angles. Also, because she is so goofy and down to earth, she knows how to make me laugh to get that natural smile. ​ On the technical side, she is definitely talented and has the photography skills, with regards to lighting, background, and she knows the good spots around town, etc, so you don’t need to worry about that. At the same time, she is open to your suggestions, such as what kind of mood do you want your photos to portray? Romantic? Playful? Casual and laid back? Just let her know! She takes your personality into account and will work with you so that you will have your perfect photo shoot; she’s super easy to work with and I felt so comfortable with her. She is definitely going to be our go-to photographer for future life moments. In fact, I just booked her for our son’s 1 year birthday shoot, and I am hoping she can do our destination wedding photoshoot as well. I can’t recommend her enough! You won’t be disappointed. ​ — the Ryan family

Robert is a very talented photographer and very pleasant to work with. We first hired Robert to photograph our engagement and fell in love with our pictures. Immediately we hired him to photograph our wedding and we couldn't be happier with all the prints and album we received. We have received many complements from our family and friends.
