It's no secret that True Photography is one of the best photography groups in San Diego. I'm here to add this-- if you are from the IE or Orange County, I believe they do travel and it's worth paying for it. We had them travel out to the IE for our engagement session which... Read More turned out incredible. The photographers are so cool, great at directing, fun to be around, and their turnaround time is great. I got to go meet with them in their studio to go over the plans for the big day and it was awesome to see where the magic happens-- A group of photographers in a trendy studio, working together to perfectly edit their photos. Just awesome. True will get all the cool and unique shots you will cherish forever. Also-- they are great at night shots, which was super important to me!

True Photography is absolutely amazing.

She then moved to San Diego right in time for us to need a... Read More photographer. My first experience was calling True Photography for a quote and to ask some questions. The woman on the phone (I believe her name was Lynsey) was amazing! She was so friendly, helpful and patient in answering all of my questions. When we arrived at their office for a meet and greet with Maddie, the owner Aaron came out to introduce himself to us. He was also super friendly, professional and kind, giving us some words of encouragement for our big day. Of course, Maddie was amazing; we loved working with both her and Irish! Maddie truly knows what she is doing! We loved the creativity that True Photography seems to celebrate in their images, and the colors and quality of all the pictures we received were amazing. It was even convenient to make monthly payments for the package we chose, which was also very affordable for the value you are getting! I would recommend True Photography to any and every one!

We used True Photography for our Engagement Photos in July 2016 and Wedding in January 2017. True Photography is an innovative photography company, using an online pricing tool and digital marketplace to easily book your photographer and purchase additional items. The only... Read More downside is you don’t get to select your actual photographer, one is selected for you. However, we were assigned Jeeheon and he was incredible! His talent and creativity was great! He put us at ease, which was needed being a couple that doesn’t really do PDA. The editing talent of True Photography can’t be beat! The photographs come back clean and sharp, natural and vibrant. True Photography’s toe-up on the competition is their additional package items. The number of edited photos is huge (for our wedding, it was 90 photographer favorites) but then being able to select MORE photos to be edited on top of that (90 of OUR favorites) was HUGE! We ended up with so many truly amazing photos. Also, being able to print through their company was great! Our prints are GORGEOUS! We will definitely be using True Photography for our future needs.

Photographers can be pricey, but this was really reasonable, I thought.

We can’t wait to see the rest of the photographs and send out our wedding announcements. Everyone will be amazed!
