Hire True Photography…..they are worth every penny and more! Choosing a photographer was # 2 on my priority list and we are so glad we hired True Photography! Ours was a destination wedding so I read tons of online reviews, they had nothing but wonderful reviews, and when I... Read More checked out their website, I fell in love with their work instantly. Initially I shopped around for another photographer thinking I might save a few dollars but I felt like the other photographers were giving me a sales pitch without saving much money at all. From my initial contact with the studio, they were so sincere about their commitment to capture amazing photos so I knew we had to hire them. From start to finish, all of my communication with the studio was very prompt and very professional. The photographer they assigned for our ceremony was Maddie. She was simply amazing! So sweet and easy to work with! From the day she called to introduce herself days after we signed the contract, Maddie was available for me to ask questions and bounce ideas around with. And on our wedding day, Maddie worked so hard to make sure we got the perfect shots while making me feel comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera. She also ensured we stayed on our time schedule and that she got all the specific shots we requested. We’ve just seen some of the photographs Maddie took and they turned out SIMPLY AMAZING! I couldn’t stop crying the first few times I looked through the images, they are just so beautiful!! Her images truly captured the emotion of our day and we love that! We can’t wait to see the rest of the photographs and send out our wedding announcements. Everyone will be amazed!


Absolutely the BEST!!!

When we had decided on our venue we knew picking a photographer was next. Our venue had amazing photos on their website that drew us into the location. We found out it was True photography and their website blew us away. We knew they had to shoot our wedding. After filling out... Read More info online we got an immediate call to discuss pricing and scheduling. My husband served in the military so it was great to get the 10% discount. We had such great communication with out photagrapher Tatiana leading up to the big day. She gave us great advice on handling all the first look and family photos. The day of came and Tatiana and her assistant were amazing and easy to work with. The day felt so easy and my husband and I are so thrilled with out sneak peak that were posted less than 2 weeks after the big day. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos and design a book.

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.

Words cannot express how wonderful True Photography is. My wedding photos are beautiful, artistic, and timeless. Our photographer, [email protected], was so great...she even drove my husband and I around to the photoshoots in San Diego. It was a bit chaotic with... Read More guests and Friday traffic. LOL! I believe what really made me choose True Photography, not only their attention to detail in photographs, but the owner Aaron's respect towards military.

Picking a photographer for your wedding and engagement photos can be a very stressful thing. You want the pictures to come out perfect to commemorate that special moment.

We contacted them and they set us up with a different photographer but we have been so happy with his work. Jeeheon did both our engagement shoot and our wedding shoot (along with Ciara at the wedding). They were so friendly and outgoing, which helped us feel relaxed and more natural in our photos. We also had our dog (Bella) included in our engagement pictures and the wedding ceremony, so Jeeheon made sure to have her included in the pictures. We haven't seen the wedding pictures yet, but based on my experience with him and the engagement pictures, I know they will be great!!!

We used True Photography Weddings for our July wedding at the Scripps Seaside Forum after scouring reviews and real photos from weddings. Voytek and Janice shot our wedding and did a PHENOMENAL job. We did engagement pictures elsewhere since we're not local to San Diego anymore,... Read More but meeting Voytek for the first time right before the wedding went perfect. He puts you at ease, is funny and personable. Janice was also great and super friendly. They were creative and gave lots of direction for where they wanted us. Voytek was super responsive along the process and also listened to the types of photos I typically liked and disliked. I definitely recommend True Photography, and specifically Voytek (and Janice as second shooter) for your wedding! They are also great value for the price that you spend. Photographers can be pricey, but this was really reasonable, I thought.

We are not the most photogenic people so we were happy they gave us every frame. They took a lot and gave us the good and the bad. We also had an “unplugged wedding” which I would highly recommend you consider. You don’t need everyone snapping away messing up those perfect pictures.
