Orange County and Los Angeles Wedding Photographers
We have had the pleasure of photographing weddings and engagement sessions all over California, other States including New York, Nevada and Texas and also abroad. We only photograph 20 to 24 weddings per year so that we can pay special attention to each couple. We are familiar with many different cultures and traditions. Over the years we have become experts in photographing South Asian (Indian) Weddings, Persian Weddings, Jewish Weddings, Chinese Weddings, Cambodian Weddings, Korean Weddings, Vietnamese Weddings, Japanese Weddings, Bahai Weddings, Scottish Weddings, English Weddings and of course, traditional weddings. We also enjoy photographing weddings for the LGBTQ community. Click here to see our favorite wedding images.
Our couples hire us because we capture the essence of who they are, as well as every detail of the wedding day, while making the process enjoyable. When we first meet our couples, most of them tell us that they are not comfortable in front of a camera, and that they are nervous about having their photos taken. This is a normal way to feel, especially since most people don't work with a professional photographer often. We at Barnet Photography have years of experience in lighting, posing and positive interaction with our Clients, We work quickly and efficiently, making the process fun! All our couples are very happy with the results and are surprised how smoothly everything went. Our couples tell us that they barley noticed we where there and are pleasantly surprised to see how many images we capture of their day.
Two Photographers are better than one
Weddings are very fluid affairs, with lots happening at the same time. There are often things that need to be covered in different locations at the same time, like the girls getting ready at one part of the venue and the guys at another, or reception decor and group photos or cocktail hour candids.
We are a husband and wife team and have worked together for over 15 years. We feel being a husband and wife team gives us an edge in that we have been able to hone a strong synergy that beautifully blends our male and female energy and together we can provide excellent coverage of all the elements of your event.
Having 2 photographers during the ceremony afford us 2 different angles during the critical moments and keeps our movement to a minimum, especially in a quiet house or place of worship.
When we have a very large or multiple day / location wedding we bring in one or more assistants or extra photographers who we have known for years, who have worked with us in the past, and who are familiar with the way we work.
Our style of wedding photography can be described as a combination of relaxed, classic and contemporary portraiture and fresh photojournalistic coverage. Our "look" is realistic color and dramatic black and white. Many of our clients have told us that they chose us to photograph their wedding because the love how our images "pop" and look so rich, vibrant and crisp.
When we photograph weddings, we are not only creating beautiful photographs, we are also telling a story. The albums we create for our Clients become priceless family heirlooms, treasured for generations to come. In fact, most of the young families in our portrait photos are former wedding clients that allow us to continue documenting their family stories.
There are lots of photographers in the Los Angeles and Orange County area, but only a handful have the long experience with all aspects of photography and customer service that we have. We hope you will give us the opportunity to show you our work in person and how we can capture your wedding day.
Most wedding venues require your vendors to carry liability insurance, especially your florist, videographer and photographer because we bring ladders (mostly florists), tripods, light stands, etc, that could cause someone to trip.
State permits are often needed to do professional photography at local beaches and some parks.
We at Barnet Photography carry insurance and have insurance certificates on file at the venues we frequent and where we are referred. When we go to a new location that requires insurance, our Insurance Broker will submit proof of insurance to that venue right away. We also are always current on our State Beaches and Park permits. Wedding venues appreciate, and like to work with vendors that are professional and have the proper insurance.
We love engagement sessions mainly because it gives us a chance to get to know our couples better before the big day. It's our goal for you to enjoy the experience and love your photos after the see the images. This will make you look forward to the photography on your the wedding day!
We would have a phone consultation with you to find out the type of session you want and the type of location you would like to have for your session. You may want to go to the beach, a park, or an urban location. We also go over wardrobe and makeup to make sure you feel good during the session and look your best. A little pre planning will make your images timeless
