I can't begin to tell you how fantastic Oscar @ Red Eye Collection is! He took our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures, and our friends and family still tell us how amazing the pictures are. He is very talented! Oscar photographed our wedding in October 2012. You can see our wedding photos for yourself @ redeyecollection.com "Lauren and Anthony" Thank you so much Oscar!
My fiancé and I decided early on that we wanted amazing photos for our wedding. We looked at portfolios of at least 30 different photographers throughout our selection process, but the photos on Oscar’s website stood out to us immediately.
He has a signature way of capturing color and movement. Somewhere between adaptive and documentary in style; he inspires these really gorgeous shots. They never look or feel forced or too posed. It's just as if he captures these fleeting and sparkly moments, and his subjects just happen to be standing or leaning in a really lovely way. He truly has a wonderful eye and ability to make you look amazing. This is what we were looking for in our photographer.
We first met Oscar at a bridal fair – I was so excited to see his booth because he was one of the top photographers we were considering. Most importantly, he and my fiancé hit it off right away. Right then, we knew we had found our photographer.
Oscar encouraged us to have an engagement shoot. The photo shoot itself was incredibly FUN. My fiancé and I loved it! We felt like we were just hanging out with a friend who happened to have a camera. Oscar made us both feel so comfortable. Oscar made us feel relaxed every step of the way. This whole process really confirmed that we had made the right choice in our photographer for our wedding.
A few months later at our wedding, Oscar outdid himself again. It takes a true professional to get the best out of his subjects, to capture the mood and feeling of a moment, and to take pictures that allow you to visually and emotionally re-experience a special time in your life when you see them. . He puts a tremendous amount of energy and attention to detail in his work, and that effort is certainly reflected in the results.
The day of our wedding, Oscar and his assistant were awesome. They met us at the hotel to capture us getting ready and the finer details. Then we were off to the ceremony/reception site to take our “first look” photos. Again, he scouted the venue for the best location. During the ceremony, we didn't even know Oscar was there – he was so stealth. The family/wedding party photos were a breeze. Dances/speeches/cake cutting photos were all taken without even noticing Oscar and his staff were there. They blended right in and didn't become a part of the wedding.
Oscar is the hardest working photographer we have ever met and he really goes out of his way to capture every detail. Every time we saw a new photograph, our jaws dropped because they are all that amazing! We show off our photographs to all of our friends and family and even they are all stunned at how beautiful they all are.
To any bride or groom that wants THE BEST wedding photographs, HIRE Oscar @ Red Eye Collection! You will not be disappointed!!! Thank you, Oscar! We will definitely be working with him for our future photography needs.

Oscar has 3 packages, we bought the 8 hour/$3,000 and felt that it was the perfect amount of time for our wedding (getting ready offsite, ceremony and reception same place, bridal party shots down the block, Oscar stayed about and hour or two into dancing)
Oscar was amazing throughout the whole process. As someone who knew very little about weddings, I needed all the help and valuable insight I could get. Oscar was very professional and made us feel at ease from the moment we met him. My husband and I knew his attention to detail and professional demeanor would get us some beautiful pictures on our wedding day.
Oscar met us one week prior to the wedding to go over the final schedule... he actually helped us create the final schedule, which was a BIG help. On the wedding day he arrived right on time to take the getting ready shots. He and his assistant Dino were completely on top of things and I never felt like I had to ask or tell him what to do. During our church ceremony he was able to take some great shots without being intrusive. He was also kind enough to give me and my husband a ride to the park down the street where we took pictures so that we didn't have to walk and so we could start early before the rest of the bridal party arrived.
During the reception, Oscar helped us figure out what to do when: how to enter the building, how to cut the cake, how to pose for cutting the cake, etc. He got a lot of great shots of everyone dancing and enjoying the reception
My takeaways from working with Oscar:
- This guy will keep you on schedule!!!
- He has incredible attention to detail
- He isn't afraid to tell relatives and the odd acquaintance that he can't do photos of them right now, but will get a shot later (i.e. once the reception has started)
- I'd use him again for any other life event I want photographed!

Oscar is a fabulous photographer! We are from Dallas & eloped to San Fran so I couldn't meet Oscar beforehand but he was beyond fantastic. He showed up early & got right to work, utilizing every possible minute. He then drove us to our 2nd location & took us back to our hotel! Our photographs are awesome! I can't say enough good things about Oscar...so glad we selected him to capture our special day.

Oscar and his crew covered all 4 days of my wedding. We had an Indian wedding with different ceremonies 3 days in a row and then we had the American wedding at a winery. Oscar did a fantastic job on all 4 days. He understood the theme very well and was passionate about making these days memorable for me and my husband. He captured all of the ceremonies beautifully. He was also very quick in editing all the photos and getting them to us in a few weeks after the wedding. My husband and I are both very happy with his work. I will recommend Oscar for any traditional/ cultural or wedding events. He is also a lot of fun to hang out with :)

If you have a problem with Oscar, you have a problem with yourself. He is honestly the best photographer to work with. He initially shot our engagement photos. My wife and I got married in Georgia, and we fell in love with his portfolio that we just had to hire him. More importantly, we fell in love with him as a person, and he was always a pleasure to talk to. As an added bonus, we didn’t have to struggle to find a photographer local to Georgia. We love the photos that he took of our wedding, and they’re also posted on his website.
We flew out Oscar as well as his videographer to Savannah, GA for our wedding. Because they were both there for a few days before the wedding, we were able to have them shoot our rehearsal at the church and rehearsal dinner (an extra bonus for us, because really, who gets to have those moments photographed too?). We are comfortable working with him, and he’s become part of family.
Before the wedding, he helped set up our schedule. This was great as we had something to share with our day-of wedding planner. Otherwise, we would have been completely lost. He also knows how to fold a pocket square since my best man and I couldn’t do ours
During some of his off time while in Savannah, he tried to enlist a trumpet player on the street to be available during the time when we took portraits. The trumpet player declined, but on wedding day, he recognized Oscar and said he’d play a song for us. My wife and I danced on River Street , and that was probably our fondest moment. If Oscar weren’t our photographer, we know we wouldn’t have had that. Oscar really went out of his way to make sure that our wedding weekend was magical
During the reception, he sat at the groom’s party table. We were flying him out to Savannah, so we wanted to make sure that he experienced the food that all the other guests were experiencing (he’s a vendor but he’s also our guest). It was actually a good thing because he was right next to our table if we needed him to take pictures outside of the scheduled events. We had Oscar until the end of the night, which for us, ended with a long walk down the street, surrounded by our guests with sparkers. Oscar thinks of everything! He also took photographs on a pedi-cab as my wife and I were on our way to our hotel.
We received our photos within a reasonable time frame. Also, he accepted our request to turnaround some of the photos quickly so that we could use them for thank you cards.
The best review you can give a photographer is a referral, and we’ve already referred him to a few other couples that will be getting married in the near future. We already know that we have our photographer when we start having kids!
