Larry from Eugene Photography was our photographer for our wedding last month at Woodland Hills Country Club. He was listed as one of the preferred vendors, which was great because he knew the perfect places for the best shots! Larry was amazing. He really made our wedding day perfect and we love the pictures he took! Things we loved most: 1) during our consultation meeting he did a free engagement shot so we could see the quality of his work, 2) I did my hair and makeup trial at his studio and he photographed me so I could make sure I liked what had been done, 3) he worked within our budget, and 4) once we selected our pictures for the album he met with us to ensure we liked the layout of each page before having it printed.
Larry from Eugene Photography and Video was fantastic! My husband and I decided after we purchased photography that videography was really important to me. We found Larry through my now-husband's best man. We were thrilled because I really like the classic style wedding videos rather than the highly-edited music video style shorts that are so popular today. We spoke with Larry and he was so kind and professional. More than that, he was very calm and provided such exceptional care, which is so important for a bride and groom on and leading up to their wedding day. My husband works in live production, so he and Larry were able to discuss how they wanted the camera angles set up, and he had a package that fit our needs! He really took care of us! On the day of the wedding, he brought an assistant and was very reassuring, and stayed with us to make sure that he had captured everything that we had wanted. It rained during our ceremony, but we were determined to have it outside (we purchased umbrellas) and since the back camera was blocked by those umbrellas, Larry made the artistic decision to film our entire ceremony from his mobile camera and captured some beautiful angles. He also provided my husband with a .lav mic, which was an excellent choice because we did not expect the rain, and the venue had moved everything inside without consulting me, so I had to tell our Day-of-Coordinator to direct everyone to move everything back outside, and working with the standing mic provided by our DJ/MC (who we absolutely love and who was amazing) was a bit cumbersome. We made the decision to marry outside regardless of the risks, and I prepared myself for the possibility that we may not have clean audio or video - but everything worked out great! The .lav captured everything clearly and beautifully! Larry uses the highest quality video camera that is not on the market anymore because it has a back-up, so you will be covered! The lighting and composition are beautiful, and I am having so much fun watching it with my husband :) Thank you Larry! P.S. - for brides and grooms who hire Larry for photography, he also will include a private photo session with your hair and makeup done and wearing your wedding dress so that you can see how everything looks prior to the wedding. He also has a list of referrals, which can really save on your vendor hunting if you so choose to use them :)
Our 07/25/15 Wedding! Larry was recommended to us by the Catering Director at La Cañada Flintridge Country Club, and wow he did not disappoint. He made our engagement picture session fun. On the wedding day he traveled to the hotel where I was staying and took some great pictures of me getting ready. He took amazing, creative and fun pictures during the ceremony and during the reception. Larry was professional and fun to be around. After the party he told me that he will have the disc with the pictures in two weeks, and exactly two weeks later he did! The pictures are amazing, flawless, he did a fantastic job. Tim, my new husband and I highly recommend Larry. You cannot go wrong with Larry! Thank you Miki at La Cañada Flintridge for recommending him. Silvia Ramirez-Stokes

Larry at Eugene Photography Rocks!Reviewed on 10/05/2014 Madeline M
Larry was our sole photographer for our small wedding, but he behaved like we were the royal couple getting married. He knew our style and his beautiful work conveyed exactly who we are. We even used him for our engagement photography and he definitely did not disappoint!

Picture Perfect!Reviewed on 5/01/2013 Fiona Y
Larry is the best photographer! He was absolutely amazing and the pictures were breath taking. It only took one meeting to know that this was the best guy for our wedding. Larry is so easy to work with. He captured every detail about our wedding that we wanted, and more. The picture quality and his professionalism exceeded our expectations. We are so happy to have Larry as our photographer.
Larry is a true artist!Reviewed on 1/02/2013 Mai B
Larry is a true artist. He's a genius with the lens. His skills blew my mind. We hired Larry because I had seen one of his photographs at our chosen wedding venue. The lighting, composition and color were perfect. I felt the emotion of the moment captured in the picture. We met with Larry and he gave me such confidence that we hired him on the spot. Our engagement pictures were almost a total disaster. We arrived at the beach and were immersed in total gloom. My heart sank and Larry kept a positive attitude promising that he had the magic to make it work. When we saw our pictures I jumped up teary eyed and hugged him. He performed miracles. The pictures looked fantastic! He not only made the beach look romantic he edited the clouds away and lit us perfectly. The color and depth of the photos were mind blowing. I would recommend Euguene Photography to everyone! Thank you Larry!
Great Photographer!Reviewed on 11/25/2012 Laura M
Since the first day we met Larry we knew that we wanted him to be our photographer at our wedding. He is very personable, creative and caring. He goes above and beyond to capture the perfect pictures. Larry took our engagement pictures and wedding pictures He also created our save the dates and our sign in book at our wedding. We weren't going to purchase a wedding video but Larry worked with us and our budget and I am so glad that we were able to get it. Every time we watch the video we are able to relive the whole event. Till this day we continue to receive lots of compliments on our pictures/ video and we are always excited to recommend him to our friends and family. I can't wait to get our wedding album. I know it will be absolutely perfect!
AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHERReviewed on 9/30/2012 Amanda H
Larry is an amazing photographer!! He photographed our wedding a few weeks ago and we could not be happier! He captured every special moment of the day and the pictures turned out beautiful. Larry is very professional, easy to work with also knew exactly what to do to get our cute little flower girl to smile for photos when she decided she had enough! We would recommend Larry to anyone!
Awesome and Amazing!Reviewed on 6/20/2012 michelle p
Larry is amazing, every pitcure was perfect and he came recommended from a friend of mine. Prices are reasonable and he is so friendly and listens to what your looking to take from your wedding and capture it in a photo.
Professional and Affordable!!!Reviewed on 1/21/2012 Tess B
I got married under the redwoods in Santa Cruz last fall. Larry from Eugene Photography did an AmAzing job capturing the event on film. I work in the film industry and I cannot express how important it is to find a photographer who knows his stuff, like Larry. Shooting stills is a skill that has been a bit bastardized by the advent of digital cameras. Just because it looks good on the monitor doesn't mean you got a quality photo. Larry understands levels of light. He understands the emotional effect of soft verses indirect light. And whats more, he comes with equipment to get the quality photo that will really POP. You get top of the line professional photos from a pro. AND he's affordable. I cannot speak higher of this man. He even knew how to get the flower girls to shine. Great attitude and a pleasure to have coordinate and be by your side on the big day.
Wonderful and professional!Reviewed on 1/09/2012 Kristen T
Larry and Neil did such a great job for my wedding. They got every shot I asked for and more. If they wanted to take photos that I wasn't interested in at the time, all I had to tell them was no and that was it. No pressure, no cheesy photos. Very professional and definitely worth every penny!
Professional and PersonalReviewed on 10/21/2011 Jeana A
Larry is the photographer and he is great. He is detail oriented and professional. When it comes to the product he spends so much time making sure you get what you want and that the product is something he is proud to put his name on. My new husband and I have made a relationship with Larry that will last for many years to come. Thank you Larry!
Amazing Wedding PicturesReviewed on 5/23/2011 Carolyn L
Eugene Photography was recommended to me by my wedding location and as I soon as we met Larry my fiancé and I knew we wanted Larry to photograph our wedding. Larry is extremely knowledgeable and takes some amazing pictures!! My husband and I loved the way our pictures turned out. We both thought it captured the evening perfectly. He will take the extra time to make sure he gets all the shots of the day. I would highly recommend Larry to photograph your wedding or event!
Amazing! Just amazing!Reviewed on 11/02/2010 Nicole G
Larry...Larry Larry....there are not enough good things that can be said about him. He is friendly and helpful, he will guide you to look your best on your day. He will make you laugh so you aren't nervous. He will tell people to leave you alone so you can have a little meltdown. He will go and talk to other vendors to make sure your day is perfect. When I first met Larry I knew he was going to be my wedding photographer, I just needed to find my groom! Then I did and he was my first last and only choice. Once you see his work you will understand why. He takes the care with each wedding to really make you feel like your wedding is of personal interest to him, like you are family. And because he has been in business for so long he knows the shots to get, the ones that will make you catch and hold your breath later when you look at your photos. The day of my wedding he showed up early and caught some silly shots of my and my niece playing which I know will be important to me later. He wasn't techincally 'on' but he saw a shot and had to take it. That is the type of care that I mean, he will make sure he gets the shots that show your wedding day for what it truly is. I couldn't recommend a vendor any higher then I recommend Larry, and I know my entire wedding party feels the same way.
Review for Eugene PhotographyReviewed on 5/10/2010 Nadia H
Larry (the owner, and son of Eugene) was very easy to work with, and really worked with us prior to get a feel for our style and special requests, etc. he was also very flexible with pacakages to give us exactly what we wanted. He is so personable that he was easy to get along with and everyone involved really enjoyed working with him.
Review for Eugene PhotographyReviewed on 5/10/2010 juli f
I loved Larry!! He was outgoing and happy and had great work ethic! We had so much fun with the engagement session and even had fun touching up photo's on his computer! We got to be art director and got to say.. get rid of this blemish or that was a perfect picture except for the hair sticking up.. so he would fix it! He was positive and open to our ideas as well as his own experience with what works and doesn't.;If you have a large family, write down the specific shots you want so you don't miss important people and give it to the photographer. That is not against our photographer just something we learned along the way! Also, have the photographer take a shot of each table.. with our without bride and groom to have a memory of who was at the wedding. We didn't do that and most photo's were of dancing and older family don't dance and we missed out on many people. My fault!!
Review for Eugene PhotographyReviewed on 5/10/2010 lisa t
I liked the price and that his studio was close to our home;He was supposed to bring an asstant- he didn't- he was supposed to do 50%film 50% digital. It was all digital. He asked us and we had in writing what specific photos we wanted. He didn't take them.
