Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find California - Northern photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?

These awards are given to photographers who prove that they have an ability to be creative, artistic, and intuitive while working on-location with couples who are newly engaged.
Q: How can couples find reviews of California - Northern wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements.

Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small California - Northern wedding?
A: There are many WPJA photographers who are able to help you out at a moment's notice. We understand that sometimes love happens and there's simply no time to lose.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND California - Northern WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Irvine wedding reception venue photography from a California marriage event

Kiran & David

Photo by Kate Hampson

Kate, My now husband David and I talked to several wedding photographers before enthusiastically choosing you. We were immediately moved by your infectious love for weddings and wedding photography; no nonsense attitude to talking about all things wedding-related (there is no pretense about you whatsoever); and, your proven track record of absolutely gorgeous wedding photography that reflects a commitment to moving away from the staged stock photo-style of wedding photography reminiscent of a different era. Ultimately, however, you drew us in with your down to earth personality; we knew we’d be gaining a friend a teammate in this crazy process in addition to a photographer. And, let’s face it, from one fellow Brit to another, your British heritage did not hurt either! ;-) I was surprised by how much we needed you at the wedding. We had the privilege of working with you ahead of the wedding with some engagement photos (which I highly recommend), and we definitely got to know each other then. As a result, I was so happy to see you again at the wedding, and was reassured by the quality of the engagement photos that you’d do an excellent job again at the wedding. What I didn’t realize was how much my family and friends would also love you! And you captured photos that are just so magical…I don’t think we could have asked for more, and that was surprising!

Lynn & Greg

We just went through the pictures and we are absolutely thrilled! You have an amazing eye - the pictures are aesthetically beautiful, interesting and really captured the event perfectly. I knew you were good, and I knew my choice was good - but now I think my choice was positively inspired. There are literally too many good pictures: we don't know which ones to get prints of! Thank you so much for the incredible craftsmanship; you're a real artist.

Kiley & Josh

Dear Doug, Thank you so much for sending these images, and for the images themselves which are outstanding. We love so many of them, the hard part is going to be selecting the ones that go in the album! We'll have more time to look and select over the weekend, so we'll probably write to you then or early next week. Again, many thanks for your work -- we are very impressed :) Best, Josh & Kiley
