It's a raining day in Chicago, so what better time to finally write my review. I'm sorry Leon that it took me three months to the date since our daughter was married to her husband and best friend. Their wedding took place in Granada Hills, CA. We highly recommend Leon. The pictures and videos are all amazing, stunning and beautiful. Leon captured the love of the happy couple along with the love of all their family and friends. He captured so many moments, for which I'm grateful as the day flew by for all of us. Leon also did the engagement photos and the signature edits he did on both those and the wedding photos are gorgeous. Our daughter was absolutely right, don't overspend on the little things your guests will forget. Your photos and videos will last forever. Please review Leon's work, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Leon, we are forever grateful! More...
Leon, what an amazing video and the pictures are beautiful. Thank you so much for everything you and your team did to make Karen and Justin’s day so memorable.
I found cloak photography at a bridal show and am so happy I did. We used them for our engagement and wedding photos and the quality is wonderful. I fell in love with the talent of the shots and the editing which is unlike any others I’ve seen. It amazing that cloak can transform a picture into something and somewhere else. I mainly communicated with Leon through email which was easy to do and he was very responsive and professional. We also got our videographer through cloak, I received the video this morning and cried at the first second; I’m so happy we went with cloak. The cost was worth every penny, knowing this was my major splurge item, since the photos will be the only lasting thing from a wedding. Thank you cloak! More...
If you need a photographer for any special event (especially weddings), Cloak photography is the best! You will not be disappointed! Leon and his team shot our wedding on December 1, 2018 in San Clemente and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Cloak Photography captured EVERY special moment. We absolutely love, love, LOVE our pictures. Thank you so much Cloak Photography! More...
Leon from Cloak photographed our wedding ceremony at First Congregational Church of LA a couple weeks ago, and we are super happy with the experience we had working with him and the final product that we received from him in the end. We decided to go with Cloak because we wanted a photographer that was not only very familiar with shooting at FCCLA but also had a distinct artistic style to their photography that could bring out the most in the beauty of the church and also capture unforgettable photos of my wife and I on this life-changing day. Needless to say, this is Cloak's specialty. Cloak got right down to business on the wedding day, and didn't hesitate to take as many photos as he could during our limited time at FCCLA. Our photos turned out so amazing. They're absolutely jaw-dropping, and the most common thing that people say when they see our photos is, "This looks like it should be in a magazine," or, "This looks like a movie." He's a true artist and a true professional. Thank you, Leon! More...
This review is long overdue from our March 2018 wedding. My husband and I are so happy we decided to go with Cloak for our engagement photos, wedding photography, video, and photo booth. Everything was fantastic, from start to finish, and we are so grateful to have so many beautiful photos to look back on. You won't regret going with Cloak for your big day!! Thanks Leon!! More...
HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION FOR CLOAK PHOTOGRAPHY!!!
My wife and I chose Cloak Photography for our July 2016 wedding. What an absolute delight! From start to finish, working with Leon and his team was an outstanding pleasure! On the day of the wedding, their team blended seamlessly into the ambience of the festivities, and never in the way of our guests. After the wedding, the photography and videography was far beyond our greatest expectations. Truly stunning, world-class work from start to finish!
It really is the fine touches that distinguish fine service, and Cloak Photography is worthy of the finest consideration! Thank you so much for capturing the moments of what so many of our guests have called "The Perfect Night." More...
The best of the best of the best. Absolutely brilliant. His photos are pieces of art.
Exceptional. Leon's team at a recent wedding I officiated was superb. The images were so perfect, I'm using them for my Wedding Wire storefront.
Cloak Photography is AMAZING! I chose to hire cloak for my wedding in October and it was the best decision I ever made. To start with, their photobooth pictures look profressional.... it's amazing. Leon and his team made everyone in the wedding party feel comfortable and gave incredible direction making for pictures that will last a life time in our family. They also got incredible candid shots of wedding guests which really captured the moment. Ultimately, the final product is amazing. I couldn't be happier!!!!! More...
Leon and his team are organized, easy to get along with, and cognizant of special moments (planned and unplanned) throughout the wedding day...and, perhaps most importantly, they create STUNNING photographs, excelling at natural and artistic shots alike. Thank you for capturing the magic of our special day - we will enjoy and share these beautiful moments for decades to come! More...
Elegant, professional, helpful, and magical! Cloak made my wedding feel like a fairytale. I was totally pulling all my moves from years of watching America's Next Top Model! Thank you for taking the time to capture the moments! I am so thankful that you recommended two shooters for all the picture angle opportunities...I am nota professional and I am glad to have Cloak Photography handled everything! More...

HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION FOR CLOAK PHOTOGRAPHY!!!
It is baffling why Cloak does not have a page on Yelp as they are one of the best wedding photographers in the business. Shopping for a wedding photographer can be daunting because there are so many great photographers in LA. After a while all of the photographers start to look the same. To help narrow things down, there are two things that Cloak does very well. They excel in low light (indoors, dark moody venues, rainy days) and epic, sweeping photos like the ones in movies or that fairy tale scene you have in your dreams. We found out about them through friends who had used them for their wedding last year. After a couple of emails back and forth, we set up a meeting at their brick and mortar store located in the Burbank mall. We met with Leon, the owner of Cloak and he showed us his portfolios as well as his videography. What struck us was how all his photos were able to tell a story and how his videos could capture all the beautiful, intimate moments of each wedding. Both photos and videos were made with movie-like editing and quality. Leon also specializes in Photoshop which he uses when making special edits. Want to look like you're in Disneyland, but you're in your Aunt Midred's backyard? Done. However, Leon was not available for our wedding date, so we chose Fernand, the second tier photographer. We were a bit hesitant since we would not be getting the top photographer at Cloak, so we were able to book a trial for something around $200. Our engagement shoot went great; Fernand was easy-going, funny, and open to ideas. He knew DTLA quite well and we traipsed around the city snapping photos, having the best time. We booked him shortly after. We got an amazing deal for both photography and videography somewhere around $5,000. He also offers a photobooth for something crazy low like $300+ if you book with him. Sold and sold. On the day of, Fernand arrived on time and ready to work. He came with team consisting of Noelle, his second photographer, and two videographers. All four of them were fun, easy-going, and flexible. Our wedding party was a goofy bunch and the Cloak team was able to fit in perfectly with them, getting fun shots as well as serious ones. We even had time to hop into a van and get a killer view of DTLA before our guests arrived. After about a month later, the pictures were ready to be viewed on their website. It comes with all the photos, a slideshow that showcases the best ones of the day, and the video. Make sure you choose the songs beforehand or they will choose one for you. It's best to go with 4 songs: 2 songs for the slideshow and 2 for the video. Make sure you have one slow paced one and one energetic one. I was blown away at how beautiful the pictures were. The photos sent chills up my spine as I re-lived every perfect moment of our wedding. The photo booth was also unique in that wedding guests could pick how many pictures they wanted printed out (e.g. 10 guests in one photobooth shot, 10 print-outs, one for each person. Truly awesome.) I cannot sing higher praises than this for Fernand and Cloak Photography, so I'll let the photos speak for themselves. More...
Leon at the cloak photography is amazing!! He take the most beautiful pictures!! You will not be disappointed at all. He is truelly magnificent. Check out the web page it's amazing!!! More...
Not just photographers, but artists! So happy i found them and if I have any upcoming events, i would hire them again and again!
I don't know how I missed this rating but it's obviously long over due. We had the Cloak family shoot our engagement, wedding and special shoots and was absolutely left speechless. They really take photography to a whole new level. We really can't thank them enough!! Our friends and family to this day still talk about our wedding photos!! Love you guys! More...
Leon did an amazing job on our engagement photos! We were extremely happy with the photos, diversity of images taken within a close proximity and only 2 outfits, and we had a great time! We were able to get so many great shots in just a couple of hours and he did a great job editing the images. 5 out of 5! More...

Love them! Leon and his team were great! I've recommended them to everyone. I love Leon's artistic flair!
I guess when you are SUPER good at what you do, you don't need a lot of reviews. Leon and his team from cloak photography are exceptional at what they do. When you've spent a year or many years planning your big day, you want to capture every detail. Let's be honest, your wedding day will feel like the shortest day of your life. So photography is not something you want to go cheap with. Hire the best, because photos will be your only lasting memory of that beautiful day. I had contracted another photographer, which I am not going to mention, but I am glad I cancelled my contract with them. They did my friend's wedding and she was so disappointed and upset. There was no way to recreate that day, and could't bare to see her so upset. I cancelled that same day.
Cloak seemed out of my budget, but with tactful budgeting and wise decision making, I booked them and I am so glad I did. Leon and his team captured every moment times 100. During the time they were filming and photographing, my husband and I just felt like we were enjoying our moment. We never felt like we were posing or awkward. The end result....an everlasting memory.
Thank you Leon! More...
Being able to see something is easy, but being able to capture that very moment is a whole different story. And when you have spent a lot of time planning your wedding day, you’ll want to be able to relieve every detail when it is all over and done and it is just the two of you and your memories.
When it comes to choosing your photographer, it is important you choose quality over product, and there is something about CLOAK photography that just makes us stare! Even around everything that is going on that day they can take a shot that shows the perfect balance of details, color, perspective, and composition. Just see their work and let that it tell it all.
