Whether you are a corporation looking to showcase the culture, a vendor looking to add to your portfolio, or a bride looking to reminisce on a day for years to come, capturing the day through photography and video is key. Here in the Bay Area, we have worked with so many incredibly talented professionals over the years, and we understand the challenges that come with choosing the right photographer. This is why we compiled this review to help you choose the best photographers for your event.
Shall we get started?
First up, we have Amanda Wei Photo.
Amanda and her team focus primarily on wedding photography, capturing stunning images and emotional moments. We love the way she captures the emotion felt on wedding days, something that comes naturally to her. One of her favorite moments is right after the couple is announced as married and the event erupts with celebration. She’s a perfect candidate for those looking for a heart-felt approach to their photography.
Another gifted photographer is Ashley Maxwell Photo.
Ashley brings energy to everything she does, offering her expertise by specializing in couples, families, and children. Raised by a photographer, we love the way she has evolved her craft over the last 19 years. Her style is laid back, light, and airy, delivering crisp and clean images that you want to jump into. If you have an event with many charming details, she’s a great choice to make sure the celebration is captured in every way possible.
Next we have the wonderfully charming, and oh so talented, Augie Chang Photography.
We have been lucky to work with Augie for over a decade and each and every time we are reminded why. He’s professional, talented, great with families, and has a classic style that has been developed over the last twenty years. Specializing in families, children, and weddings Augie Chang Photography is a great option for anyone looking to have their journey captured over the years.
Carlie Statsky is another incredibly skilled photographer we love.
Graduating with a degree in photo-journalism, Carlie has had exhibits in Sydney, Barbados, and the US. After years of exploring various styles of photography, she now focuses exclusively on portrait and wedding. She uses her photojournalism background to guide her photography, offering a natural feel. We can’t recommend her enough for anyone looking for an editorial approach to capturing life’s most meaningful moments.
More recently we’ve had the pleasure to work with Joshua Rose Photography.
Specializing in elopements, weddings, and engagements, Joshua has the ability to capture so much mood and emotion in his images. His images are stunningly captured, offering so much genuine emotion in each photo. Joshua is the best photographer for your event if you are looking to have love captured through inspiring, emotional images.
Another recent introduction is Larissa Cleveland.
We met Larissa while visiting a destination resort, Grand Velas Los Cabos, last February and instantly had a connection. With a passion for photography that started young, Larissa studied photography through out her life allowing her to become an expert in both digital and film. Residing in CA over the last 10 years, Larissa now has a studio in San Francisco that is available by appointment. Her bright, emotional style is perfect for those looking to capture a wedding, elopement, or family session.
Rachel Capil Photography is next on the list.
Rachel not only specializes in weddings, but she is also very talented in capturing Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, corporate events, and real estate. She’s even helped us in the past with our team holiday cards. Truly a multi-talented woman! Her style is clear, clean, and colorful making her a wonderful option for a number of event sizes and styles.
Next we’d like to highlight Urban Shutterbug Photography.
Michelle, the woman behind the camera, is calm, cool, collected, and charismatic. Over the last 12 years, she’s made a career for herself out of her passion for photography, offering her talents all across the US and Mexico. She is wonderful at capturing an individuals’ truest self, allowing subjects to find comfort in front of the camera, with a style that is light and airy. She’s a wonderful option for weddings or families looking for a laid back approach to life’s big moments.
FInally, we’d like to introduce Wedding Documentary.
Wedding Documentary has captured several of our weddings over the years, offering exceptional quality in both photo and video footage. Specializing in Indian weddings, Wedding Documentary is a great team to work with if you are looking to capture your wedding and/or Sangeet from start to finish. To see what they can capture via video, check out their Vimeo.
We hope this review provided enough insight to help you find the best photographers for your event. There’s so much that goes in to planning for a special occasion, but imagery is one of the few aspects that continues to live on long after the last guest has left.
