Bernard was incredible! I hired him for our wedding last month and have already received our photos. He was professional, helpful, attentive, and patient.
On the day of my wedding it was close to 100* outside. He worked with the unfortunate ...
lighting and captured some amazing moments. My photos are beautiful. The catholic church where our ceremony was very strict about his positioning but he worked around the guidelines. The photos from inside the church are beautiful.
Also, He's also super down to earth and easy-going, which was very important to me, I felt like I could be myself around him. 10/10 would recommend!

Bernard was hands-down a fantastic vendor from day one, and fulfilled everything I wanted in a wedding photographer. Quick to respond to messages, professional, polite, good-humored, and easy to be around. Both my husband and I enjoyed working...
with him throughout the process, and felt like we were dealing with a friend.
Bernard took our engagement photos as part of our (affordable!) wedding package, and not only did he deliver great shots, but he made us both comfortable during the photo session. Neither my husband or I enjoy getting our pictures taken and consider actually ourselves un-photogenic, but Bernard was very patient with us and found ways to make us feel comfortable and look great!
On the wedding day itself, Bernard and his second shooter Matt were on time and on point. It was no easy chore wrangling our wedding party together through the chaos, but they both worked smoothly with our big groups of family and friends (about 175 people), from the church to the reception area. We had a Catholic church wedding, an indoor dinner reception afterward, and a slight drizzle to deal with throughout the day, but Bernard and Matt dealt with challenges with patience and good humor. They made sure to stick with us to the last minute for as long as we needed them at the reception.
We received our finished photos very quickly. Bernard got terrific shots of the entire day, including the many reception details. It is worth noting that he is quick to respond to messages and easy to contact via text or email. You can tell he's as much a pro at managing his business as he is a talented photographer.
For the price, level of service, and quality of work I 101% recommended this guy! (Thanks for everything, Bernard! :) )

After seeing the way another couple's wedding photos with Bernard turned out we asked and were told he was great to work with and was highly recommended. Bernard did a wonderful job from start to finish. We hired him for both our engagement sho...
ot and wedding day, which were about a year apart.
Bernard is both professional and an amazing photographer. What I appreciate the most about him is that he has a wonderful modern style and great technique but he wont cost you an arm and a leg. His value is incomparable. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had and always kept open lines of communication.
Bernard is obviously talented at his work but he also has a very calming presence and always made the bride feel comfortable even in stressful moments. He captured two great days in our lives and we are so grateful for the final product and beautiful memories.

The Short Version:
We hired Bernard for the following projects: engagement pictures, tea ceremony and wedding ceremony [note these events occurred on separate days]. Wedding day also included a second photographer.

rompt, professional, friendly, & affordable
Turnaround time for pictures was super quick
Would hire again for any future projects
The Long Version:
Bernard is amazing! The hubby and I live in northern California and had our wedding in the OC. Our trips to LA are rare and far between and always jam packed with things to do and people to see. Even though I know his schedule is super busy with not only work but family too, he accommodated his schedule to fit ours in order to take our engagement pictures. Our engagement pictures were more than I could have expected. To be honest, the hubby and I are very awkward in front of any cameras. Bernard was able to make us feel comfortable and made us forget that he and the camera were even there. Our engagement pictures captured the essence of us, which was very much appreciated.
The quality and turnaround time for our engagement pictures made it easy for us to make the decision to hire Bernard for our tea ceremony [which occurred months before our wedding ceremony/reception]. Bernard was [again] professional and prompt. He was respectful towards the older folks in the family, which is always a concern where there are cultural traditions involved. The location of the tea ceremony wasn’t any place fancy and lacked pretty landscaping and all that jazz, but again, Bernard is AMAZING! He was able to turn my backyard full of dead brush and grass, electricity poles and pretty much crap into a tropical landscape with an awesome mountain view. Our bridal party was blown away with all our pictures because they were in our backyard and saw the same scenery we did, but the pictures did not reflect any of the negative aspects of the location.
Bernard and his second shooter, Matt, were both prompt and immediately got to work. Again, Bernard was super accommodating, as our schedule was not going according to planned. For the getting ready pictures, Bernard took photos of the girls and Matt took photos of the boys. Bernard was again very respectful to the moms and family in the bridal sweet. Per the boys, Matt was easy to talk to about anything.
Wedding day = stressful day and it doesn’t help when you hire a wedding planner that sucks [yes, I’m not a unicorn farting out rainbows all day long; I’m honest with my critiques & reviews]. Bernard was aware of the situation and reminded me to remember that the day was about me and the hubby and not all the frilly details.
Back to the sucky planner, who told Bernard and Matt they couldn't take a meal break after working for 9 hours [even though it was scheduled!]. I didn't hear about this situation until after the wedding. They were both amazing and took everything in stride. Thank you so much guys!
I won’t reiterate how great Bernard was on the wedding day. [See above for examples of what makes him a great photographer and awesome person in general.]
After the wedding, we received our pictures pretty quickly. We received all the raw footage as well as edited photos. Again pictures were beautiful.
We couldn’t be more happy with our decision to hire Bernard! Thank you so much Bernard! <3

ny/reception. Bernard's turn around time was amazing! Two days after the engagement photo shoot, Bernard sent us an online link for the photos so we can post them on social media. Since our May wedding was in peak season, we received the photos five weeks after the wedding--which was right on time since that was the agreed upon time period. Bernard also mailed DVDs for both engagement and wedding photos.
Bernard was very responsive via email, text, and video conference. We FaceTimed to discuss the contract before signing and Bernard clarified all of my questions during the meeting. Since I've never had a professional photographer take my photos before, I was very nervous and unsure how to pose. During the engagement shots, Bernard was very professional and personable, and gave clear directions on how to make the photos look best. I highly recommend taking the engagement photos first so that you can work out which shots you'd prefer for the wedding photos.
Overall, I highly recommend Bernard! He's a pleasure to work with and priced reasonably. Bernard's work is beautiful and he takes great care to ensure the perfect shots are captured on the big day. He is diligent in making sure that all family/friends are included in the group portrait shots. If you need examples of his work, his blog has tons of pictures of previous events he's covered. (Maybe he'll post our photos on there!)

h how our the pictures turned out, and could not be more pleased!!
From the very beginning, he was extremely professional, prompt with communication via emails, and most importantly, he was friendly and easy to work with. I sent him some sample wedding pictures/poses that I wanted to do a few days before the wedding, and he managed to remember all of them and made it happened! He is really good at taking notes on what his clients want.
On the day of the wedding, he brought in a second shooter, Matt, who was just as much a pleasure to work with. The two of them have great personality that brings the best out of you in the pictures. They showed up on time and was ready to rock and roll! They also made our wedding party felt at ease, especially my MOH who tends to be quite camera shy. During the reception, they were so fast with their cameras, capturing all the details and all of our guests. Bernard works really hard to get the perfect shot, he never rushes you.
When we received the DVDs with our wedding pictures, I was so amazed at the amazing lighting and colors that Bernard was able to capture. Our wedding venue was all outdoors with a ton of redwood trees, and our pictures literally looked like we were in the middle of a forest. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Going through our pictures was like reliving the whole day all over again.
After our wedding, we were asked countless time from many of our friends, coworkers, and family where we found our photographer and a couple of friend even asked if he was a "The Knot" rated photographer, hah! His pricing is also extremely reasonable considering the amazing shots that you will get.
If you are looking for an easy-going professional photographer who aims to please his clients and who captures the most amazing pictures, look no further! Bernard is your guy!
