All of these are highly rated online – photographers were one of the most important aspect for me, so I’ve spent days if not digging through reviews and blogs!

I have personally corresponded with all 3 and ALL of them have been incredibly nice, responsive, honest, and professional. Each responded patiently and in a very timely manner to a bunch of my detailed questions. 

They all range about $1800-3000 and can tailor packages to your needs. They also offer a second photographer or one or two have addons like photobooths. Check out the specific details on their websites.

We went with someone else, but much more expensive, because Fiance fell in love with and insisted on them and we decided to cough up the money and trim somewhere else, but honestly, if we couldn’t make the money work, I’d be really happy with any of these.

We used Anika London photography and I just can’t recommend them enough.  They did an amazing job on our engagement and wedding photos.  We get compliments on our photos all the time.

We just got out engagement pictures back from Ryon:Lockhart and I can’t stop smiling. They are fabulous people and very talented. They are a married couple, which I loved. The package is for 8 hours, and includes an engagement shot for 2800. They just moved from New York, so I think they are charging a little less than what I think the price point normally would be at to get established.

@bedes13:  Joseph and Jenny Llanes (llanesweddings.com) just shot my wedding, and my husband and I absolutely loved them! They were so easy to work with and do beautiful work. I don’t know what style you like, but theirs is very editorial. They use some artificial lighting and reflectors for certain photos, and they will direct you for how to pose for portraits. The result for us (we are shy and not the most photogenic together) with their guidance was really beautiful, natural looking portraits with amazing lighting and color. For the reception they mostly took candids so we didn’t feel like we were taking photos for our entire wedding.


If you are looking for someone with a more photojournalist style, Adrienne Gunde is great. I met with her first and really liked her and her work, but she was booked on my date by the time I was ready to put down a deposit.

633 Photo FOR SURE! Not even kidding. 

They are friends of ours and do wedding photography for a living. They are two of the nicest photographers/people you’ll ever meet. I’ve seen them do my friends and they are doing mine in the winter. They are $2000 all day. If you email them, tell them Staycie referred you!

They live in La Mirada (30 mins south of LA). 


Let me know if you wanna talk further!
