We really wanted photographers who could capture the outdoor beauty of our mountain wedding, as well as draw out our personalities in our photos. Brenda and Marc were friendly, approachable, always accessible, and set our minds at ease. It really helps to be surrounded by calm, and happy people who enjoy their job on your big day. All of our family and friends were blown away by the quality, creativity, and fairytale quality of the images (not to mention the sheer quantity). The photos are a really balanced mix of the small details that made our wedding personal (e.g. cake, rings, centerpieces), the people we love, and the gorgeous outdoor setting that we really wanted to incorporate. They even had a brief running slideshow on a tablet at one of our tables during dinner of the photos they had just taken hours before (so cool! Our guests were thrilled!). The photobook we received recently is one of our most treasured keepsakes and will help us relive the magic every time we look at it. A million thanks to a couple of amazing photographers and all around delightful people!
Helpful, energetic and great to work with! Our photodate ran smoothly. They were a great help in planning and responded quickly to an emails! Their photos are beautiful. I have received and overwhelming amount of compliments on our engagement photos!
One excellent piece of advice I was given when I started the wedding planning process was to invest in the photography; it's these pictures that you'll have years from now to look back on to remember your special day. Choosing Marc and Brenda was, without a doubt, the best wedding investment we made! The first time my husband Tim and I met the Bergreens was at Starbucks and we chatted over a cup of coffee. It was a casual setting and not stuffy at all; and that’s just the way we like things! They made us feel comfortable from the get-go. Tim feels pretty awkward in any picture-taking event, so it was very important to have someone photographing us without adding any stress. Our engagement photo-date in Sequoia National Park was such a fun day! Marc and Brenda did give us some direction, but basically let us do our own thing. They have a keen eye and were able to capture moments that I would have completely overlooked. The time between our engagement photo-date and wedding day, they kept in touch with us and if we had any questions, they got back to us in a very timely manner. The day of the wedding went by so quick; most of my memories are from the pictures that were taken. I cherish every single candid snapshot Marc and Brenda gave to us. One last thing that I highly enjoyed was all the little gifts they sent us; like the wedding “emergency kit,” the notebook, and even the wrapping our photo album came in. They pay attention to the details, and it makes things that much more magical. They are the epitome of professionalism and are great people in general! We cannot thank Marc and Brenda enough!
Marc and Brenda are extremely talented and creative. We've had so many compliments on our wedding pictures. We could not believe how well they turned out. Hiking through Sequoia National Park to take pictures was both exciting and adventurous. Marc and Brenda did exactly what we asked and they have exceeding our expectations in every way. You will not be disappointed.
Great!Reviewed on 11/09/2014 michelle s
Marc and Brenda were a pleasure to work with. Beautiful photos for both the engagement and wedding. Really know how to showcase the landscapes during photographs. Fun, laid-back, very helpful. Quick turnaround for photos, very easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend.
Amazing Duo!Reviewed on 7/17/2014 Lindsey V
Awesome husband and wife photography team! They did a great job with our wedding and provided us with amazing memories of our special day!

Brenda and Marc photographed our 4 day wedding event. They captured all memorable moments of our wedding at Cove Point Lighthouse in Maryland. All the special lenses that they use gave the sailing adventure, fireworks, bonfires, and beach swimming great effects. During the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, we have photos that relive the moments. We relive OUR Wedding Day through Marc and Brenda's professional photos. Thank you! Words can not express our gratitude!

Marc and Brenda did the photography for my recent wedding, and they did an amazing job! We did a lot of shopping around for photographers and found that not only did Marc & Brenda's style suit us best, but that their prices were extremely competitive. Our package included both an engagement shoot and our wedding day. My husband and I were very nervous about the engagement shoot (neither of us enjoy being photographed) but within minutes with Marc & Brenda, we were totally at ease and actually ended up having a great time! They also really do live up to their "Love Adventurously" motto and were more than happy to go to any of our off the beaten path locations. Not only that, but they had taken the time to scout the locations prior to our shoots to make sure to get the best shots. They really just seem to love their work and want to make sure your day is represented. When they heard that my husband was going surfing the morning of our wedding, they showed up bright and early to tag along. Brenda was waste deep in the freezing water (September, north of Santa Cruz= no joke.) to capture some amazing photos! We also received a photo book as a part of our package. Marc & Brenda put together dozens of spreads for us to review, within weeks of our wedding. I was extremely impressed by how quickly they had turned around the photos. Other friends of mine have had nightmare stories of getting their wedding photos. Not with Marc & Brenda. Overall, we were impressed and are happy with our beautiful photographs!

We don't know where to begin about Marc and Brenda but the fact that they are the most amazing people you will ever meet! My husband and I knew they were the photographers for us the second we sat down and had a conversation with them. Not only do they take AMAZING photos but they make you feel like friends not another customer and we loved that about them. They truly go out of their way to make you feel like you are getting the best you can get. At our photo date they brought us a marriage survival kit. It had champagne and chocolate and massage oil and candles, and they told us to relax and enjoy it while they got set up! After the wedding was done my husband and I got to work with them to put together our wedding album. The quality of the wedding album is by far nothing I've ever scene! And just when you think the fun surprises stop, Marc and Brenda throw in their crafty touch! Our wedding pictures were sent to us on a handmade flash drive in a handmade little bag with charms on it, we were blown away. We highly recommend Bergreen Photography to be your photographers for any event you have coming up. You will not be let down by their quality of work. Marc and Brenda were the best part of our wedding experience and we will always cherish our new friendship and work experience with them:)
Wonderful :)Reviewed on 10/08/2013 Shawn G
They photographed our wedding in August 2013 in San Luis Obispo, and everyone was very pleased. Marc and Brenda are awesome... they are super helpful, have great ideas, are easy to talk to and work with, are fun, and most importantly take beautiful pictures! They helped me plan the timeline for the day, and they made sure that I was comfortable with how the day was going to go. After the wedding, a lot of our family and friends told us how much they loved them, as people, not just as photographers. I am so happy that we chose them, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Amazing Photography TeamReviewed on 9/17/2013 Katie J
We had the Bergreens photograph our wedding this summer and they were the perfect choice. Marc and Brenda did an AMAZING job! All of the pictures turned out beautiful and better than we could have imagined. Planning beforehand was fun and easy. We had complete confidence in their abilities, that all would go smoothly, and it was so nice to trust in their abilities on such an important day. They are a great couple who have fun working together and make it so fun to be around them. During the wedding, they directed us well and also allowed us to offer ideas of pictures we would like. They are very professional and we've enjoyed every minute of working with them. We highly recommend choosing Bergreen Photography to capture your special day.
Great Experience!Reviewed on 8/11/2013 Katie M
We were very pleased to have had Marc and Brenda photograph our wedding! They were kind, punctual, and above all, professional. They were on-time with all deadlines and very easy to communicate with. They were also very flexible in where/how we wanted particular shots. Their prices are very reasonable for having two highly skilled photographers, the high quality of the pictures themselves, and the album, USB drive, etc. that came with the package. We got along right away and they really understood how to represent our unique and awkward personalities (in the best possible way)! We particularly liked that they were able to capture us in our element, not in strict poses that they made us get into. They gave great ideas for some poses, but also did a great job of letting us be us and capturing that. We got a lot of compliments on them from our guests and we would definitely refer them to anyone. They shot our engagement pictures, rehearsal and wedding day and are already on our minds for future photo dates!
Extremely Happy!Reviewed on 8/10/2013 Michelle C
Although getting married isn't something we do often, we believe we couldn't have had a better set of photographers than Marc and Brenda. They are both very friendly and easy to work with, helped us out however they could, with ideas, and shots during and before the wedding. Their posed pictures were unique and beautiful, and their candid pictures caught the mood and ambiance of the day and how everyone just seemed to enjoy themselves was expressed perfectly in their photos. The overall experience was only reinforced by our chance to be able to experience their excellence in our friends' wedding. We were not disappointed with their work in either our or our friends' wedding. We highly recommend them, they are fun and easy going, easy to work with, and both very dedicated to what they do.
Nice workReviewed on 5/23/2013 Amanda M
Photographer did good work if not for going with a family friend I would of definitely kept them in mind
Stress-free and fun on the day when you need it the most!Reviewed on 1/22/2013 Kelly G
Marc and Brenda photographed my wedding about a year ago. Whenever I sit and look at all the amazing photos they took, I am so happy and grateful that they were the ones to share that wonderful day. They caught moments that I would have never seen, every shot looks fantastic, and they made the experience stress free and fun. Having a married couple taking pictures is perfect for wedding photography. They have been there and know exactly what to look for. They know how stressed out and nervous you might be, and they make the whole experience better with their happy attitude and great planning. I would absolutely recommend them for any kind of photo shoot. In fact, they shot my brother's engagement pictures!
Great photographers and peopleReviewed on 11/07/2012 Laura K
I hired the Marc and Brenda Bergreen as the photgraphers for my wedding, and they did a fantastic job. They were professional, flexible, full of ideas, and fun to work with! During the engagement photoshoot, they made it easy to relax and be ourselves as a couple. They took the time to get to know us and our story so that they could do a better job of showing it visually. For both the engagement shoot and the wedding, they arrived early to scout out the places and angles where they could get the best shots. Having both of them working on the day of the wedding was also a plus, because there were many shots during the ceremony one photographer working on his own would have missed. The actual quality of the pictures are quite good, and a handful of the pictures are just magical. Now we have beautiful pictures of our wedding to share with family and friends, and Brenda is doing a very artful job of designing layouts for our wedding album. For the service they provide, their weddign package was a great deal. Would definitely hire them again!
AMAZING PHOTOS! GREAT VALUE! ABSOLUTE PROFESSIONALReviewed on 8/13/2012 Stefanie C
This husband and wife team make the ideal photographers for any event. Not only do they work seamlessly together but their laid back, go with the flow attitudes, put any anxiety or stress at bay. We had the pleasure of their services at one of the most important days of our lives. Our wedding day. They were completely prepared and everything went smoothly from start to finish. They sat us down to talk about all the shots we were looking for plus suggesting awesome ideas of their own and working out a timeline for the day. They would do anything for the perfect shot to make you happy, even if it meant putting their mountain climbing experience to use and hanging from the side of a building!! We would definitely recommend Bergreen Photography to everybody! We couldn't have asked for better pictures, or a better team!!
Perfectly Wonderful Photographers!Reviewed on 1/25/2012 Danielle B
My husband and I hired Bergreen Photography to capture our engagement photos and our special day. We were never disappointed as we looked through the tons of great shots! Marc and Brenda are such a great husband-and-wife couple, and they will blend right into the background until the moment you need them to take over and direct the crowd for your group shots. Check out their portfolio--they have such a knack for incorporating scenery and natural beauty as well as capturing all of the emotions. We LOVED them!!!
