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... Read More (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!!!

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 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... Read More 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 absolutely LOVE our photos! We were married a few weeks ago in Colorado and Dustin with True was absolutely fantastic!

I am so happy I hired True Photography for my wedding. I am from Boston, MA and searched endlessly for the right photographers. I was really impressed with their work on their website and they had amazing reviews so it was a no brainer to book them. They respond very quick to... Read More emails and questions. Billy was our lead photographer and he contacted us a week before to go over timelines and gave us great tips. On the day of the wedding, Billy and Alex were amazing and so easy going.

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.

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... Read More 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!
