Review: Engagement Photos - Southern California

  • Luke took our engagement photos in Seal Beach, Orange County, California. We absolutely loved working with Luke and how our photos turned out. We were drawn to Luke's work because of his artistic and documentary style, nothing nearly as posed as a lot of other photographers. Exactly as we hoped and expected, our engagement photos are a fabulous package of beautiful, artistic and loving images.
  • Having never hired a professional photographer, I was a little nervous that we would feel awkward in front of the camera. Thankfully Luke did a great job of suggesting postures, but letting us do our own thing. Because of this, our emotions and how we normally interact really comes through in our photos. Luke suggested Seal Beach as a location and had an incredible eye for locating great back-drops on the spot. We offered suggestions, and he added others. Everything about the session worked together seamlessly.
  • Luke put together an online photo gallery, sent us a DVD of images, and put together a blog post of some of his favorite images. The latter was great for circulating to lots of friends and family. We received about 130 photos, all professionally edited and some in black-and-white.
  • Luke did a fabulous job -- we would definitely hire him again and recommend him to others! He's a reasonable face in an otherwise expensive wedding industry, genuine, and tremendously talented.

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? I am into artsy photos, and we loved the outdoor photos during our reception. It was just be perfect day, 70s in November, great sunset lighting and fall colors. There were even wild deers in the background. Luke was able to capture us in the beautiful surroundings as well as putting his personal touch to it. It really reminded me of the Great Gatsby!
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Luke was great and arrived on time to the house to take photos of the girls getting ready. Even though he had 3 difference places to get to (house, church, and reception), he arrived with no problem. He has a great eye for capturing children going crazy on the dance floor, candid shots of the guests, and family portraits.
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? We had enough time for the 8 hour package. All we wanted was all our photos on a CD so we can print whatever we wanted. With the 8 hour package, Luke took about 800 photos and we also have online hosting of our pictures to show our friends and family. It was just Luke taking the photos for the day, his wife comes when she has free time.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? My family loves taking photos, so he also gave them a chance to take photos of their own as well. The managed to capture every aspect of the wedding from start to finish.

Review: One of the Best!

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? Luke was phenomenal on the day of our wedding! I cannot say enough about the quality of his work, the unique style of his pictures, his professionalism, his ability to get right into the action... the list goes on! I am thrilled with the results. We cannot pick one favorite (there were too many!), but particularly liked that he was always looking to try new things and got excited about different posing ideas the surroundings provided.
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Luke is great at all shots, but his specialty is candids. He captured it all from the tears on my mother's face, to the ecstatic look of my husband. We were so glad that we were able to actually enjoy our day without being paraded around from picture to picture and being blinded by flashes. He was visible enough so that we could find him when we wanted a certain shot, but was not the "in your face" guy that blinded people everywhere he went. Luke and his wife helped to pose us for the formal portraits (which was great because we didn't have a clue where to stand or what to do), but for the rest of the day, we barely noticed him- yet somehow he still captured it all.
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Luke's wife came along and helped to pose and take pictures at our wedding too. They're the sweetest little team and even helped us find a nice leather portfolio at the last minute for one of the readings in our ceremony. We got a DVD with all the edited images from our wedding day, and all the rights to those images which was a MUST for us when we were searching for a photographer.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Luke exceeded our expectations (his prices were much more reasonable than many other top quality photographers we were considering). Not only were the pictures phenomenal but he was such a joy to work with. He made us feel comfortable the entire time and he captured our perfect day. We were so glad we went with him.

  • What was your favorite wedding photo? We haven't had the wedding yet, but I wanted to sing the praises of Luke's great work on our engagement photographs. My fiance and I both love all of the pictures! It's hard to choose (and describe) just one.
  • How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Luke really let us be ourselves during our engagement session. I suggested Georgetown for our setting and he was more than willing to work there and went out earlier that day to scout out some good places for pictures. The photojournalistic/candid photos he took while we enjoyed a few scoops of ice cream are among my absolute favorites. Portraiture was lesser on my priorities for these photos, but the few that meet that criteria are beautiful framed and the focus is great.
  • What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Again, we just had the engagement session but I feel like Luke allowed us a lot of creative freedom with suggesting backdrops and lots of locations for photos within walking distance of where we began. Of the photos Luke took that day we ended up with around 50 photos with edits and color correction delivered on a electronic media in the mail.
  • How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Luke is a really sweet guy! He put up with a million of my e-mails leading up to the shoot, he brought his wife along to assist with posing us (he was a little shy about moving us around) and was just perfectly gracious throughout the entire event! We are very pleased with our entire experience!!
