Doug is an awesome Photographer, I hired Doug for our wedding Photography and he worked with us on our Engagement Photos so far; and they turned out great! Everyone just loves them! He was very fun and easy to work with. This was new to my Fiance and I and we aren't very Photo friendly, but Doug got right in there and helped us, told us a joke, got us to laugh and totally made it look natural and our pictures came out great! We cant wait until he does the Photography for our Wedding day, we know they will be awesome, and we know everyone will just adore him! Thanks again Doug... :-) I will definitely hire Doug again for any Photography that i need in the future, and i would definitely recommend him to anybody who needs Photography! Cheers.

I just got back our engagement photos and we are ecstatic! First off Allan was super friendly and awesome to work with, we planned something last minute and he was super cool about our new location choice and he came prepared and researched. My fiance was pretty uncomfortable with the idea of photos because he doesn't like doing this kind of stuff but Allan was super personable and made us laugh which really made the process effortless and fun! Not to mention the end result is amazing. The photos are extremely professional amd clear. We are very happy with the photos and would recommend Allan to anyone. Thanks so much!

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

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.

Susan was the best photographer we could have wished for. She was unobtrusive, professional, yet got every shot that we would have wanted while putting our wedding party and guests at ease with her smile and charm. I have had the opportunity to observe several wedding photographers in my life. NONE were as easy to work with and knew instinctively, what made a great wedding photo set. She perfectly preserved our wedding day for our friends and family. Thank You. ! Steve & Elaine Cobb

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amanda and having her take some pictures of me. I typically do not like having my picture taken, but she created an environment in which I felt comfortable and relaxed. She has a very pleasant personality and the quality of her photography left me feeling extremely satisfied with the overall experience.

Jim is passionate about photography and very good at what he does. He is always looking for ways to perfect his art form. He loves to be around people and interact with different individuals in a variety of settings. He has worked with families, teens, and kids outside of taking photography which allows him to be able to grab the attention of a kid or teen in order to capture them at their best.

Monique is everything my fiancé and I looked for to take our engagement photos. Monique was flexible, organized, detail-oreientated and a joy to work with. Monique has a keen eye and the natural ability to create a memory in every environment. We chose the location of a meadow with yellow flowers and the pictures came out magical and unique.

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

Talented photographer with a special eye and an interesting an personal perspective. Mateja had been ready to work hard to make the project work even on early morning hours when the conditions were the one we were looking for and when it was freezing cold... Mateja is focused. She delivers and we can count on her. Looking forward to our next project with her.

What can I say about Amy? Amy was one of the photographers at our vow renewal. But the twist was that it was a complete surprise to me. My husband set the whole thing up behind my back. Usually, brides have time to work with a photographer to tell them what their vision is and what type of pictures they want, with who, and which poses. I on the other hand, did not. And eventho I only met her the day before the ceremony, everything turned out perfect. She was calm and collected and took charge. She took some really great shots of us before, during, and after the ceremony. When my husband and I first eloped five years prior, the one thing I always regretted was that we didn't have any pictures and because of Amy I have ones that I can cherish forever. Amy truly went above and beyond for us and I liked the fact that I could download all my photos for one set price. She was amazing at being able to capture the moment and taking pictures just at the right time. I'm truly thankful for her on our special day.
