I had Koman for my wedding photographer back in May. They were very easy to work with and the instructions they gave us were really easy to follow. My husband was very shy in front of camera; however, Marlene and John made him looked very happy and natural in all of the photos... Read More we received. Koman Photography captured both my childhood dream and the spirit I've desired for my husband and I, and all my lovely guests. Their frames mesmerized me and left me speechless. Defintly worth every penny and recommend to all couples that are looking for good photographer.

John and Marlene (and Anna) are an absolute dream. My husband and I both feel really uncomfortable in front of the camera, but our engagement pictures were so gorgeous that we we didn't have to spend a single moment worrying about what the pictures would look like on the wedding...

John and Marlene are truly a photography dream team. They photographed my engagement photos, my engagement party, and my wedding day. My memories of those special moments are so beautifully preserved because of the magic that John and Marlene make with their cameras. Not only do... Read More they take the most stunning photos, but they are also such wonderful people. They are both caring, kind and patient. They are easy and fun to work with, and they make you feel natural in front of the camera. I got married in Sonoma County, and John and Marlene traveled there from Southern California very willingly. They are brilliant with camera angles and lighting, and they make the end product look ethereal. I rate Koman Photography a 10 out of 10, and I recommend them to all other engaged couples!

Marlene and John are the DREAM TEAM. Booking them was one of the best decisions we've ever made. First, our engagement photo session was flawless. They are artists and so talented at what they do. They met us in Venice for the first half of the shoot and then drove all the way... Read More to Malibu to shoot more on the beach. Leading up to the big day, they were always available to answer any questions we had. On our wedding day, despite the fact that it was in the middle of July in LA, it was raining! Not only were Marlene and and John so calming, they offered to give us another opporunity to shoot photos if these one's didn't come out how we wanted them. They love each other and they love their work and it really shows. We are so thankful we had them capturing this moment for us. Highly highly recommend!

LOOK NO FURTHER. That's right, you have just found the most amazing wedding photographers EVER. I must admit, I am not so easy to please & I was more than impressed with the Komans. From our first meeting they made sure to answer all of our questions and were really easy to get... Read More along with. Throughout our communications they were always very professional, super sweet, and very prompt in every reply. And of course, their photos speak for themselves! They're commonly featured on StyleMePretty and you could be too! They use soft natural lighting and make sure your photos have a variety of shots, romantic, classic, natural, posed, whimsical, fun, wide angles, close ups, you'll have so many beautiful shots to choose from... That will be your biggest problem! My bestie told me when she got her photos back (by another photographer) she only had a few she liked. When we received our shots, it was quite the opposite! Marlene and john work so well together that they capture you looking your best! And they're such a pleasant and sweet couple themselves, it's really easy to be natural and sweet around them too. We truly felt blessed to be working with a team who truly have passion and pride in their talent and hard work. We absolutely love love love all of our photos and I couldn't recommend anyone else to any of my besties! Even when it rained on our wedding day, we missed some shots that we wanted outside, but we were still happy with the photos we got! They were amazing! As if the Komans weren't already our new best friends, they offered us a free post session to make sure we had even more shots together!!!! They really are the greatest and I'm sure you'll agree. This is the day you want to capture so perfectly, and the Komans will do that for you.

Marlene and John are truly wonderful! We had them for our engagement and wedding pictures last May. They are an amazing couple and extremely talented.

Best Photographers... EVER

Andrew and I booked John and Marlene to be our photographers for our wedding and it was the best decision we ever made. They are a husband and wife team that have a true passion for what they do and it is clearly illustrated through their photographs. The thing that I love about... Read More John and Marlene is their innate way of making you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Sometimes, taking pictures in front of people that you just met can be a daunting and uncomfortable task. But during our Engagement Photo Shoot, John and Marlene were able to make the shoot so much fun and we ended up being great friends at the end of the session. Then, when the wedding day came around, Andrew and I were so comfortable around them that taking pictures was highly enjoyable and a breeze. I would highly recommend to book them as your wedding photographers as it is a decision that Andrew and I are so happy that we made! We will now have the most beautiful and perfect pictures to commemorate our special day.

A Great Team!

My husband and I were very happy with the service that the Koman's provided! We are from Oklahoma, but had the wedding in California, so we met with them pretty early into the engagement during the holidays when we were both able to get out to Los Angeles on vacation. They... Read More helped us with a payment plan, and were very flexible all around. They worked with us right away, even subbing out an engagement shoot and switching their packages around so that we could afford to get everything we wanted. They were always very sweet and professional, and we loved that they are a husband and wife team because they worked excellent together. My husband and I were intimidated by the camera and we both don't really enjoy being the center of attention; the Koman's were so helpful in getting us out of our shell and remained patient and kind, which really helped us feel comfortable during the pictures. That was so important for us! Many of our guests commented on how friendly they were, especially during the family photos. Our grand entrance was delayed and they were kind enough to stay a over their paid time to make sure they got the shot. Photographers are expensive anywhere you go, but if you find a couple like the Koman's, it makes it all worth it! We haven't seen our photos yet, but I know that they are going to be just beautiful. They are very talented.

Marlene and John are an amazing team! I am VERY picky about photos and had a very specific vision in mind for our engagement photos. When I stumbled across Koman Photography I fell in love and don't feel that anybody else could have done it better. The second we started I felt... Read More comfortable with them and had a blast through the entire shoot. I could tell they really cared about each photo they took, and handle their art with such vision and passion. It wasn't just "another shoot", it seemed they really wanted to be there which really lets you rest assured that their passion will be transferred into your entire shoot never leaving you disappointed. Unfortunately they won't be able to shoot our wedding, but I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!!

Koman Photography photographed a friend's wedding a couple of years ago, and my husband and I liked their work so much that we knew we wanted them for our own wedding.

Marlene and John were wonderful. They are amazingly professional, and also very warm and personable. And so... Read More organized! Several members of my wedding party mistook Marlene for our wedding planner because she generally had a better idea of what was going on and who was where than even me or the groom.

I am generally pretty camera shy, but they did a great job of making me feel comfortable and working around my general awkwardness. Our pictures came out wonderfully, and they were a pleasure to work with. I'll be recommending them everyone.
