Wedding Photography Reviews Brides, Bumps, & babies

I met Brad about 11 months before my wedding and I knew instantly that he was going to be the person I hired to photograph my special day. Brad provided us with many wonderful memory keepsakes from our engagement photo session and our wedding day.

Brad's pictures are simply amazing. He spends an incredible amount of time planning the events, the shots, and the touch up work on the photographs from our wedding at Wayfarers Chapel. He is the consummate professional and keeps everyone at ease throughout the wedding day. The photos from our wedding are truly a gift of a lifetime for us. Very thankful to Brad for everything.

Being that we had a destination wedding in Tamarindo Beach Costa Rica, Bradley was able to quickly scout the ceremony beach location as well as the poolside reception area and gave us recommendations that really helped our wedding photographs come out spectacular!
Brad did an amazing job of making us feel comfortable with him and this allowed him to really capture our personalities in our wonderful wedding photographs.

Bradley did a fantastic job on our wedding at The Verandas in Manhattan Beach. We did not want a wedding photographer that took the same old boring photos of guests standing posed with fake smiles. Brad was great at capturing all of the special moments throughout our wedding day.
We are very happy with our wedding photographs and highly recommend Bradley to be your wedding photographer.

We loved working with Bradley as he looks at life through his camera with poetic and creative ideas. His natural talents along with a warm and friendly personality allowed us and our family and friends to be relaxed and this comfort level shows in all of the photographs.
If you want the best wedding photographer that allows you and your partner to just enjoy your big day...Bradley is the photographer for you!

We hired Brad for our wedding on May 31st and I must say, I'm super happy we went with him! He worked so hard to get the perfect shots and capture our most special day!
It was a great day and hiring you was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process! Casey and I couldn't be happier with every picture you've sent us so far! Thank you again! Your hard work definitely paid off!!!

At the recommendation of our wedding planner, my fiancé and I hired Brad to photograph our wedding. So far, we have completed our engagement photo shoot (which was part of our package)--and couldn't be happier!!! We love how nice and down-to-earth Brad is. He made us feel at ease from the moment we met him.
He is also smart and really goes the extra mile. Since he wanted us to have exactly what we wanted, he asked thorough questions from day one about our vision and style. We even sent him several photos we liked from other shoots so he could photograph us in a similar way. And, boy, was he prepared! Prior to the day of the engagement shoot, he scouted out our chosen location (Malaga Cove) with our wedding planner--which I am sure is why he was so prepared the day of and why everything went so smoothly while we were there.
He and his assistant, Tracy, were wonderful. Everything was so streamlined. And, I have to say that, while neither my fiancé nor I are really fans of getting our picture taken, we had a lot of fun at the shoot--as Brad and Tracy made us feel so comfortable and Brad had us laughing the majority of the time.
I also have to mention that he has shown us incredible patience and flexibility. We had a bit of a crisis the original day of the shoot--my fiancé had a shaving mishap and his beard looked all wrong. I felt awful to cancel last minute, but Brad was totally cool and rescheduled the shoot with us without hesitation or attitude of any kind.
Brad sent us the photos on a CD with both print and web versions. They were simply gorgeous! He offered to photoshop anything we weren't pleased with...but we didn't have to make any changes at all. He's an amazing photographer and I can't wait to work with him again at our wedding!

Brad shot our engagement photos, and they were amazing. He was so easy and fun to work with. He had so many creative ideas that really made our pictures unique and special. Looking forward to a baby shoot in the near future!

We found Bradley to be, most importantly a good listener. He took the time to understand us and what we we trying to capture in our wedding pictures.
He was clear with us in discussing options with regard to photo style, layout and albums. His pricing was easy to understand and straightforward.
Bradley met us at our site prior to the wedding date to look at specific places we thought would work well for what we wanted in our photos. We had a clear plan for the wedding day on where, when and with whom the photos would be taken. The event went off without a hitch.
There were no surprises and the photos we received were exactly what we were looking for. We recommend Bradley highly.

Booking my wedding photographer was something I stressed about more than everything else I had to plan for my wedding. Wedding photos are so important because your wedding day flies by SO quickly and after its over, the photos are all you have left to serve as detailed memories of your big day.
I had a very specific image in my head of the way I had hoped my photos would turn out--and the person who took our engagement photos (from another company) not only failed to capture the vision I was going for, but also decided to cancel on me a Month before our wedding! I was so distraught and beginning to panic when I decided to speak with my wedding coordinator about the situation. She immediately recommended Brad Herbst! I saw a sample of his work and called him within SECONDS!...I explained my situation to him and let him know that I was in a "time-crunch" as the wedding was only a month away....He was our "KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR"...he literally saved our wedding day!
Hiring them was one of the best decisions I made and I got more than I could have ever asked for. The very first day that I spoke to him, he arranged to do a walk-through of the venue with me and from that day on we stayed in CONSTANT communication--discussing every detail of what my vision for the wedding photos entailed.
From start to finish, Brad was so easy-going and fun to be around, yet still very professional, and patient! His first and only concern is the happiness of his clients, he was so eager to make my vision a reality and I am so thankful for the beautiful images that he and his colleagues produced from our special day.
I would highly recommend Brad for any special occasion or important event that needs to be captured!
