Trash The Dress
Our entire experience with True Photography was simply flawless!! From the initial consultation (with the owner, Aaron), to the actual event, and even the post-production work; True Photography is absolutely top notch! Our photographer (Billy) and his assistant photographer (Janis) were amazing! They took time to understand our personalities, our wedding party, and our guests as they worked their photographic magic. Their photos truly captured us for who we are and are so uniquely "us"! Best of all, they were calm and collected the entire evening (it's exceptionally important to have calming influences surrounding you on your wedding day). I do recommend hiring 2 of their photographers if finances allow, as the primary photographer will stay with the couple during the pre & post ceremony, while the assistant will be available to take valuable shots of the guests, the venue, etc. Look no further for your photography needs -- True Photography is impeccable.
Absolutely the BEST!!!Reviewed on 7/13/2015 Ashley B
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 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.
BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS AROUNDReviewed on 12/18/2012 meghan w
We chose True Photography to photograph our wedding because we put photography on the top of our list of priorities. It was THE BEST decision we made! Everyone in the True team was awesome and took care of us from start to finish. The photos from our engagement shoot and wedding day are incredible- popping colors, clear, beautiful and creative. From the candids to the portraits, we couldn't be happier. All of our wedding guests tell us that they are the best wedding images they've ever seen. You also get all of your images digitally on a flash drive without a watermark so you can print them yourself. True is hands down the top wedding photographer in San Diego and we will continue to use them for other family shoots in the future. I promise, you will LOVE your photos!
We loved the whole process of working with True Photography! We were initially a little nervous about going on our engagement photo shoot, because it's not something we often do... but Billy immediately made us feel at ease, and we had a great time! It was seriously so much fun working with him, both at the engagement shoot and at the wedding. Initially we didn't know if we wanted to pay so much for photos, but now that we have such spectacular photos we have absolutely no regrets. Every time we look at them they remind us of what an incredible day our wedding was, and I know we will treasure them for the rest of our lives. Thanks Billy and TruePhotography!!
True Photography was the best team for our wedding day! We met with Dustin several months prior to our wedding day to allow everyone get to know each other and so he could see our personalities. The planning process was informative and he was very responsive to our requests. The day-of process was excellent with both Dustin and Maddie. My wife and I love San Diego and definitely chose the right company and photographer to capture beautiful wedding photos. They captured the fun and love that was present on our wedding day and we will definitely use True Photography in the future.
Voytek is one of the best photographers out there… Our engagement, wedding and trash the dress pictures were phenomenal! Voytek was incredibly professional and attentive. He also had a great sense of humor, which helped because my husband and I were not very comfortable jumping in front of a camera. Janis was the second photographer at the wedding and she was a pleasure to work with as well. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of the photos taken. They certainly aren’t cheap by any means, but we are so glad we didn’t cut the cost in getting the right photographer. We are thrilled we have amazing photos around our home to remember one of the most important days of our lives. What else do you have to show for all the money you spent on the wedding except your pictures and videos. =) PLUS – They don’t charge per photo. 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.
THE BESTReviewed on 1/10/2016 Dee
TRUE PHOTOGRAPHY are Amazing! They are extremely friendly, accommodating, and talented. Where do I begin? THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHY EVER! Engagement: Aizhan was our photographer for our engagement shoot. If you want the best pictures call True Photography. Aizhan listened to our scenery needs and was very accommodating. Additionally, she made some recommendations that were amazing. The photos came back and were Beautiful. OMG! Pictures were vibrant and absolutely elegant. It's been 8 months and i'm still looking at our pictures! Wedding: Aizhan & Sage were wonderful (no surprise)! They were punctual and everyone seemed to embody there friendly yet professional personality. They joked with us, loosened us up, and were extremely charming towards our families and friends. All of our guests loved their presence. We didn't have to wait long for our Photos and we were excited about the results. The photos were Top Notch, just like our engagement photos, the colors were vibrant, the shots were elegant, and everyone looked absolutely candid in sharing our wedding joys. I would definitely recommend True Photography to all of our friends and family. Don't think twice about booking them. You will Love every photo. If i could i would give True Photography more than 10 Stars! The most professional and Friendly team!
AMAZINGReviewed on 11/06/2015 Stefania G
Bottom line on photos: you get what you pay for. Voytek and Paul our photographers were phenomenal. I can't even begin to describe how amazing all of our photos were.
We hired True Photography for our wedding and worked with Voytek and Paul. We were so impressed with how fun pictures were and all of our wedding party and guests commented to us as well how impressed they were with our photographers! I truly thought pictures were going to be something we just had to get through but turned out they were one of the funnest parts of the whole day thanx to Voytek and Paul!! Thank you so much for making our day so amazing!!
True photography was amazing! I had such a great experience and the pictures turned out so great. Aizhan was my photographer, she is very sweet but able to get everyone focused and in order quickly. She is very creative and such a great photographer. The photos turned out so spectacular.
True Photography was awesome. It was a little bit different than what we expected but we were more than satisfied with the results. We met with Aaron, the owner of the company and he was able to tell us about the process and how True Photography began. We came in already impressed by their photos on their site but meeting with Aaron and his down to earth personality is what helped make our decision to choose True. But you don't work with Aaron. They will provide a photographer from their staff that they think will make a good fit for you and we communicate with each other from then on out. We worked with Voytek and whether or not he represented True photography, working with him was really cool! We first met at our engagement shoot and as if taking posed photos wasn't awkward enough, meeting a stranger for the first time to take those photos didn't make it any easier. But it was fine! Voytek was so chill and was so comfortable that it made us feel comfortable too. He was very personable and was able to direct us even when we felt weird about some poses... he even told us that it would feel weird. True was a little more expensive than the other companies we met with but they were also very flexible with payment options and were prompt with their email responses. The quality of the photos were worth every penny... but we also chose to spend more on photography because that's what was most important to us. The day of the wedding Voytek and Heather were on time and they were directive and assertive. They were able to get the attention of our friends and relatives amidst all the commotion and still respect the strict timeline by our church. They were very patient with the large bridal party and the unfortunate weather changes. Some of the day was rainy and gloomy but you couldn't even tell from the photos! They were able to improvise and they were so attentive to our needs... Heather was always holding my veil making sure it wouldn't get wet. I would definitely recommended Voytek, Heather and True Photography. They were fun and provided a stress free day!
Halloween Wedding @ Twin OaksReviewed on 11/26/2014 Krystal A
When I was picking my photographer it was between 2 different companies. One my husband wanted and the other was True Photography. I finally got him to go with my choice and we do not regret it one bit. We got Voytek as our photographer and he was amazing!!! His pictures are great quality, he caught great moment's and he was just overall great to work with. Check them out, they are worth the price for sure!
Great PhotographerReviewed on 11/09/2014 Jessica F
Mike Luna from True Photography did an absolutely fantastic job photographing our wedding and reception! He was fun and really great to work with. We had some special location photos and group photos we wanted and he was more than happy to set up any photos we requested. It is nice have a photographer that not only does a great job but also truly enjoys what he does. Thanks!
Best Decision We MadeReviewed on 10/30/2014
We booked True Photography for our wedding because we heard nothing but amazing things. Prior to planning our wedding, I hadn't thought much about having a photographer, other than that we needed one to capture the event. It wasn't until after the wedding when we looked through our photos for the first time that I realized how much I valued having incredible photos that documented so many special moments -- from the memorable photos of my groomsmen and me before the ceremony, to my wife walking down the aisle and my grandma busting a move on the dance floor. These photos will always bring back all the magical moments and we are so thankful that we chose a top notch, talented company like True. I can whole heartedly say that choosing a photographer is one of the most, if not the most, important decision during the wedding planning process. I recommend putting your trust in True so that you can enjoy your wedding day and relive it all again when you look back at the photos. They are the best out there.
Michael is AMAZING!Reviewed on 10/24/2014 Nicolette S
My husband and I hired Michael Svoboda at True Photography for our wedding and he was just incredible! He always made himself available before the wedding to meet with us to discuss ideas and explore locations at the venue. On the day of the wedding he was professional and fun and made everyone, including my husband and I, the wedding party and guests feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. We received over 1,000 photos and every single one of them was amazing! Your wedding photographer is one of the most important vendors you'll hire for your wedding and Michael will NOT disappoint!
Competent, Charismatic, Creative Genius!Reviewed on 10/13/2014 Kara P
I was one lucky bride to have Dustin and True Photography play such a big part in our special day. Dustin knew what he was doing at all times and was the main artistic director of the wedding. He took control of all situations that arose even if outside of his job description and instructed the other vendors at times. His ability to remain flexible, have fun, and make everyone feel comfortable made for the perfect day. Thank you for going above and beyond even our highest expectations!
Amazing!Reviewed on 10/12/2014 Sharde R
True Photography was amazing to work with from beginning to end. From the initial phone conversation to the amazingly edited wedding photos and everything in between, the experience was great. This is definitely a higher end photography company but they are worth the investment. We had the pleasure of working with Tatiana for our engagement photos. She made us feel so comfortable and the finished photos were just what we wanted and expressed to her beforehand. Many questions came up throughout the year between our engagement shoot and our wedding day. All of the representatives at True were extremely patient and helpful. Tatiana was there to shoot our wedding day as well. She made me as a bride feel completely at ease throughout the day. She was so kind to everyone and was still able to be assertive enough to get our large bridal party and families to cooperate to get the shots she needed. Her second shooter Irish was just as amazing and really helped to capture many of the details of our big day. The finished photos are absolutely amazing and we couldn't be happier!
PreparedReviewed on 10/10/2014 Daria R
We had heard about True through conversation with another couple who had recently married & highly recommended them & then checked out their website, after which we were sold. Though we're still awaiting our wedding photos, they've been very good at letting us know ahead of time regarding timing, addressing any & all issues & working with our needs. They are incredibly professional & come prepared...so far it has been a great experience working with them but just be sure to get their professional photographers to ensure the best quality (as they have apprentices as well).
Beautiful PhotosReviewed on 7/05/2014 Andrea R
True was great to work with. They were very responsive and happy to help make our day perfect. We loved the photos!
Best choice I made…Photography is very importantReviewed on 3/12/2014 Christy D
My pictures are amazing I had Mike L. do them and received so many compliments! I highly highly recommend and I am very picky about photography. If you want vibrant, dramatic, magazine looking photos they are the way to go….if you like the very soft bridal look you may not be as happy as I am.
L'Auberge Del Mar Intimate WeddingReviewed on 1/19/2014 Elizabeth A
We absolutely loved and enjoyed working with True - Mike & Billy went out of their way to do shots we had requested. They are very flexible and really want to make your day memorable. We would love to use them again!
Wonderful Service!Reviewed on 1/12/2014 Claire H
I spent a long time looking for a photographer because I wanted beautiful yet unique photos. We had never been photographed before, so we were willing to go the extra mile. The first thing I loved about True Photography was their website - they have ALL of their photos on their website, and they are stunning! You know before you even meet them in person that you will have beautiful photos. We had a lovely experience meeting with their coordinator, and then our photographer day-of was incredible. She made us feel very comfortable, and it was probably the easiest thing we had to do all day. We are especially pleased with the fact that they provide you with a USB drive with all of your photos - touched up. This way you can get prints on your own, and make photo books with ease. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer.
Loved them!Reviewed on 11/08/2013 Jamie C
True Photography was amazing to deal and I love the pictures. They were helpful, professional, and great with communication. I recommend them to everyone!
True Photograhy did a stellar job!Reviewed on 9/16/2013 Megan M
I am beyond thrilled that we went with True Photography for our wedding. I really appreciate a well-organized and easily navigable website. Theirs is by far the best out of all the ones I researched. I love that they have all of the weddings posted so you get a sense of the photographers' styles, and the high quality work that they do. The contract process was very straight forward, and the staff at True was so easy to work with. Very responsive and timely. Courtney and Sage were our photographers on the big day, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. They were really wonderful and totally put us at ease. (I mean, when does a normal person spend all day in front of the camera?) My husband and I joke around a lot, so I'm glad that they were also able to join in the fun with us. We just got our pictures and they really capture who we are, and what we wanted our wedding to be - timeless, and above all, fun!! The quality of the shots and the enhancements are beautiful. I can't wait to put albums together now. I'd highly recommend True Photography to anyone looking for amazing shots, and an all-around great experience.
Best In Class PhotographerReviewed on 8/21/2013 Erika S
Aaron Feldman of True Photography was the most amazing photographer. Our pictures turned out better than we could have every expected. Aaron and his team are fun and easy to work with. He made us feel very relaxed and we had a lot of fun taking the pictures. Aaron's pictures are vibrant and extremely creative. Many of our pictures were romantic/vogue-esq while others were playful and candid. True Photography really knows how to capture all the special moments of your big day and we recommend True to everyone!
