Could not be any happier with this company!! We used them for photo and video for our wedding, with the associate level. On-site, everyone so extremely nice and professional-- even went above and beyond to help out with things like carrying my dress train. The photos came back stunning and the video(s) are just flawless, and perfectly captured. We would recommend them to anyone! More...

There aren't enough words to describe how much we love Pye Jirsa and how well he captured us as a couple throughout our weekend. In my opinion, it is an honor to have him shoot your wedding. His talent and passion are equally matched with his loving, caring personality. He is such a gem. The pictures are better than we could have ever dreamed. Aside from the pictures, his presence alone made our wedding so much better. His positive attitude and love for what he does is infectious. From our very first phone conversation, we knew we made the right choice. He really wanted to get to know us as a couple so that he could capture us in a way that we wanted. Our wedding day ran long, but Pye had a smile on his face the entire time. He was as energetic and passionate at 8 pm as he was at 10 am when we started. Not only did we pick up on this, but all of our guests commented about how much they loved Pye. Being at a large Indian wedding with 400 people can be a lot to handle, but not for Pye and his team. They handled it with ease. Our wedding spanned over three days, so we were really able to get to know Pye and his team. Not only are they talented but they are extremely thoughtful. They went out of their way to help in any way the could. At one point, a member of Pye's team was helping me fix my nose ring as I was getting ready. If you are looking for the best, look no further than Pye Jirsa. We love you Pye!! Love, Gurveen and Neil More...

My cousins had Lin and Jirsa do their wedding and when it came time to choosing our wedding photographer, this was a no-brainer. We recently had Lin and Jirsa, specifically Mike Santos, do our engagement photos and omg we are in love!! So talented and the angles are so flattering. We cannot wait to see what the wedding photos will be like. Mike was super kind and down-to-earth. He knew how to work us in the right positions and make us feel 100% comfortable. If in doubt, highly recommend L&J! If you can get Mike, that's a major plus!!!!!!!! :) check out some of the photos we posted! We can't wait for our actually pre-wedding and wedding photos later on this year! Also, mike went into the water with us and we were all soaked! That's how dedicated he was! Mike also had Josh helping him out and he also got into the water to make sure we had ample lighting. Also a very down to earth guy too!!!! He even held my ring when my fiancé and I got deep into the water. Overall, I had a great time and the team was super chill. Highly recommend!!!! :) More...

Lin and Jirsa Team has been amazing! I would recommend team! They are very creative. Nice to work with. Brandon was my engagement and wedding photographer. He made sure to capture to beautiful moment. The videography team is amazing as well. They knew what to do for a south Asian wedding. They came prepared. Both of the times followed and worked with the wedding coordinator (Yasna Patel). Thank you! For capturing the beautiful moment for us. More...

We cannot say enough great things about Lin and Jirsa for making our wedding events so memorable on January 19th and 20th. Nicole was such a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond with her level of service. All of our family members and friends had nothing but amazing things to say about Nicole and the Lin and Jirsa team. Thank you once again for everything! We will HIGHLY recommend Lin and Jirsa to all our family and friends. More...

We are so grateful to have had Lin & Jirsa as our wedding photographers - everything about them is high quality and very classy. They definitely know how to capture all the emotions, vibrancy, and organized madness at weddings, especially big Indian weddings!
We had Brandon for our engagement shoot at Victoria Beach, for our first wedding event we had Nick, Rabiya, and Angel, and the wedding/reception with Justin, Nick and Rabiya! Selena was incredibly helpful in all aspects of coordination prior to and after the events.
All of the photographers really just make you feel comfortable and yourself, which is what you need on your wedding day! They make sure to discuss certain shots you may want before hands so they can incorporate them into the day. Most importantly, on the day, they were so accommodating, friendly, and if they were expected to be somewhere or capture something, they were always on time doing it. We are so pleased with all the photos we got, and again, are so grateful to have had the team we did! We would highly recommend them to anyone for their wedding!
Also, just a special shout out to Justin, who is such an artistic visionary, and an overall wonderful person - once he gets his mind going on a shot, he will work so hard to make sure its perfect, and it is SO worth it!

Shivani was the lead photographer for my Indian wedding at Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, CA.I was incredibly impressed with the way Shivani ran the entire day. Honestly, she's a key reason why the wedding went off without a hitch! I loved how the minute she came into the hotel room with her massive staff, she sprung into action for set-up, identifying the exact nooks and crannies for optimal lighting and picturesque backgrounds. She wasn't afraid to get in there and be creative; rearranging the hotel furniture and re-draping the windows.The best part was that I was able to rely on Shivani and her crew to help me make sure that my day ran smoothly from a timeline perspective. We'd finish one session (e.g. bridesmaids champaign toast) and then I'd turn to her and say: What's next? She'd be ready with the next phase with sibling and parents. I knew I was in good hands. Timeline is among the most vulnerable piece of the entire day, and it's critical to have someone who is ON IT as your lead photographer. Someone who can communicate with everyone around when there are a thousand moving pieces. All with a fantastic and light hearted attitude. Shivani is a boss like that. In fact, all of my friends were commenting on how Shivani seemed like some sort of artist / photographer prodigy because of her age & the quality of the photo previews!Her attention to detail was noticeable; whether it was a quarter inch to the left or right, she had a VERY clear vision for what she wanted. And the photos speak for themselves. She captured some of the most intimate and memorable moments for our family that we literally couldn't have imagined. It's cliche, but it's true: The wedding day flies by. And I'm grateful for Shivani to have been there for us to help keep us in the moment, and bring our memories to life that we can now look back on forever!Shivani never missed a shot! More...

Lin & Jirsa are the absolute BEST wedding photographers in Southern California. Chris Lin, one of the owners of the company, was our photographer for both our engagement and wedding photos, and we could not be happier with the results! He is so creative, engaging, and hard working--on top of being an amazing photographer--and the pictures turned out absolutely beautiful!! One of the best things about Chris is how much direction he gave, and his sense of space. He always had perfect poses in mind, and really led us through all of the pictures he wanted to take. My husband and I (and our wedding party) found this super helpful--we never had to think about how to pose, or whether to smile, or where to put our hands. It's something you don't think about beforehand, but ended up being very important for the actual pictures.Although they're based in Orange County, they traveled to Palm Springs for our engagement photos and San Diego for our wedding. My wedding planner recommended about 10 different photographers, and as soon as we saw Lin & Jirsa's portfolio and style, there really wasn't any other choice for us. As a company, they took care of everything from start to finish (including coordinating with the venues regarding permits, off-limit areas, etc.). I really cannot say enough about how great they are--I could not imagine any other photographer taking our photos. Thank you so much!! More...

Working with Lin and Jirsa was a wonderful experience from our engagement shoot to wedding. Shivani Reddy was our photographer but became a friend by the end. She guided and directed us through every step of the big day and we couldn't be happier with our photos. Although she is an associate level photographer, her work is master level and we highly recommend. Thank you Shivani and team!!! More...

Every single person at Lin and Jirsa was a joy to work with! We did our engagement photos with Brandon and then had Tim and Brandon on our wedding day. There is a reason why they are in such high demand! We just had our wedding last weekend and already 2 engaged couples have asked us for their info. Can’t say enough great things about them! More...

If I could give them a 10, I would! Honestly since we met Joe since we fell in love with his demeanor and attitude, he told us we can get a few GREAT photos vs a lot of "tension filled, stressed photos," and I knew he would work with our crazy family and all of the different personalities. He made our engagement shoot easy and fun despite the stress of the LA traffic and at the end of that day we knew we would have Lin & Jirsa come out to little first state Delaware for our wedding! My dad was very hesitant about a photographer coming from California, stated what if they don't show? Which I then had a bad dream about but I knew that would never happen!During our 1400+ wedding it never felt stressful because we’d look at Joe and he knew what we wanted. The rest of the team was amazing as well. Special hugs to the whole team who came out and Shivani thank you for dealing with my husband and his groomsmen! Thank you so much for it all! Can’t wait to see the rest ;) More...

BRANDON. If he's available for your special day, request to book him. I'm sure there are a lot of great photographers out there with the technical skills but Brandon goes above and beyond. He is able to take people like us that have never been in a photo shoot and put us at ease. During the photo shoots, I liked how he would que us occasionally and make adjustments. We're not models, we don't know how we look in photos, and we don't know how to pose for more than a few seconds. He would help us by giving us instructions as well as letting us be our awkward selves for candid style photos. He erased all my concerns and created the looks that we talked about beforehand in our discussions/expectations meeting as well as creating a portfolio of amazing photos.We were fortunate to have Brandon as our lead for our engagement photo shoot, Tea Ceremony photo shoot, and the day of wedding (3 separate days). Brandon and his team were absolute professionals. It didn't matter to him if he was knee-deep in the ocean with us during our engagement session, running sparklers around us at night, or if he had to capture multiple sets of extended family group photos. It was hard work and I felt a little bad at first that we had so many requests but Brandon and his team did it with enthusiasm and a great attitude. It made a big impression on us and it showed in our photos that we were comfortable and happy. I looked at probably 20-30 different photographers online portfolios and met with a few in person beforehand. I narrowed my choices down but I kept coming back to L&J's photos. Lin and Jirsa's prices are more on the higher end of the spectrum but they are worth it and I quickly saw why. Brandon's team came with 2nd and 3rd shooters and suitcases of heavy equipment for nighttime photos. L&J have a signature look to all their photo's and I was surprised to see all the equipment it took to create the photos we wanted. There's a lot of behind-the-scenes work such as an extra set of hands holding a reflector for perfect lighting, extra remote flashes, and editing involved. And on the day of wedding, there were so many things happening at the same time that we needed a 2nd and 3rd shooter to assist and capture everything. Weddings are expensive but photography was one tangible item we could keep forever. There's more to photography than point and shoot and so much pre-work to get that perfect shot as well as editing work involved after. The day of wedding goes by so fast but I'm glad to have gorgeous photos remaining. Tips: We got married on a Saturday on 4/28/2018 and I believe L&J had 6 or 7 weddings booked that day. You can choose which photographer you want based on availability, so book early. Some popular photo shoot locations will require a photography permit by the city or venue. L&J took care of the permits for us (paperwork) and we just refunded them. When we showed up to one of our photo shoot locations that required a permit, there was a discrepancy by the venue saying we didn't have the permit although I know L&J prepaid for it already. Due to time before the wedding, I paid for the permit (again) to the venue just so we can get in since we were on a packed timeline. After the wedding, L&J contacted the venue for us and had the venue refund me directly for the mishap. I appreciated L&J's staff taking care of the little things for us. The permit cost was negligible but it was helpful to have personal assistance on our behalf. L&J are one of the best at what they do and have established relationships with everyone in the industry. Thanks Brandon, Robby, Nick, Bekka, and Leena! More...

Lin & Jirsa Photography & Cinematography were wonderful and exactly what we expected. The whole team was very friendly and personable. The videos were customizable to our exact liking - I especially love the highlight video so much! The photos were just as amazing. They brand themselves as "high end" because the quality and thought they put into the whole journey (from engagement to wedding) really shows. Genuine thanks to Bekka, Kiersten, Clarence, Joseph (please forgive me if your name is not on here)! WOW, we really had a giant production team just for us. We felt so special :) More...

They reigned in our families and at the same time got everyone we needed for photos. If it wasn't for Nicole the wedding wouldn't have happened ! she went above and beyond to help me during my wedding and literally saved it - total wizard not just at photography but style and dress More...

Lin & Jirsa has now supported two of my Company's major events - one being the Grand Opening of our new Headquarters, and the other being a major Sales Meeting at an off-site location.From start to finish - you'll find the Lin & Jirsa team to be helpful, charismatic, and genuinely interested in making your event photography stellar. Rebekka Ramirez has worked with us on both occasions, and always goes above and beyond to assist us!The quality of their photographs is outstanding. We've had many, many of our employees remark how much better their product is compared to other professional services we've used in the past.Use Lin & Jirsa with confidence, be it for a wedding or a corporate event - you won't be disappointed!

I don't think there is enough space to say all the wonderful things I want to about Lin and Jirsa! But I'm up for the challenge, so here goes...Putting together a wedding is, well... everything they say about it is true. It's wonderful, exciting and STRESSFUL. Lots of moving pieces. But right from the beginning they put my (now husband, then fiance) and I at ease. They asked questions that cut to the core of what we wanted out of our photos. I knew there would be at least one part of the wedding that would be perfect!And it was. Pye was with us day-of and he was very interactive and gave great tips to ensure everyone was comfortable (and looked great!). He was able to pull emotions out of people and capture special moments. He also made it fun! I didn't even think of it as being photographed at some points! The photos were beyond what I expected (and I do/did have high expectations). Thank you Lin and Jirsa for your dedication, artistry and dedication to capturing our day. More...

Our experience: My husband and I had a blast working with Lin and Jirsa. Our photographers were Brandon, Erin and I think his name was Max? (Sorry if I got the name wrong!!) They were fantastic. Very easy to work with and receptive of ideas. We vibed very well with them.

Prior to our wedding day I had chatted with Brandon in regards to specific shot lists I had in mind. He was so great as to try to capture them all day of. And I really appreciated his openness to that.

Why I picked Lin & Jirsa:
-I love that Lin and Jirsa provides three photographers. And the price is quite reasonable for them. My husband and I had a 300 people wedding so it was important to us that we had more photographers to not only capture all the events happening but also our guests enjoying themselves, specifically our family members.
-I really enjoy the look of the photographs: it's always so bright and golden but not over-exposed.
-They take great indoor photographs. For me it was important that whichever photographer I picked did a good job capturing moments under dim conditions. And they nailed it.
-They also do an amazing job capturing posed and candids.

Rooms for Improvement:
There's no such thing as a perfect vendor, so my only experience where I felt could've used some more improvement was they could do a bit more micro-management on details. Ie: if you notice my ring is crooked please fix it prior to taking a photograph, telling people how to pose if what they're doing is unflattering, telling people where to stand, etc.

From the very first phone call to review what we were looking for in wedding photography, it was clear that Lin & Jirsa are way more than a wedding photographer. The questions they ask and the feedback they solicit is all about helping them to create the perfect story of your wedding day and they completely blew us away. My wife wanted a bright and beautiful aesthetic and I wanted something that told a story about people enjoying themselves and having a great story. When we received the initial teaser images in an email on our honeymoon, we were in tears remembering our beautiful day and how we will be able to remember it thanks to the perfectly captured moments. My family and friends were all so comfortable with the whole process and loved working with them as well. If there is a way we could have been happier with this whole process, I don't know what it is. If we could give a 6th star, we would. Literally perfect. Thank you Lin and Jirsa! More...

We're 7 months late on this review, but better late than never, right? This is pretty simple: Stop what you're doing and book L&J. They are incredible from the initial meeting through to the delivered product. Their attention to detail is relentless and to say they go the extra mile in creating images is an absolute understatement. That being said, the way they make you feel is beyond amazing. Instantly, you forget there are cameras on you and begin to feel like they are friends that you've known your whole life. From start to finish, there's never any awkwardness in front of the camera; our friends who never show their faces in ANY picture were amazed at how comfortable they felt. You really feel like you're on top of the world with L&J. I truly can't say enough good things about them, but please, find out for yourself. I promise, you WILL NOT be disappointed. More...

If we could give Lin and Jirsa more stars we would! Finding a photography team was the toughest vendor to find after the venue. Brandon, Nick and Rabia was an awesome team to work with. They were so patient with my crazy big family during the tea ceremony and the day of wedding. Although we had to shorten our hours they worked with our tight timeline and got all the shots that we had wanted. We had already seen how they worked during our engagement session and so completely trusted them for our big day! My husband was very nervous with posing but Brandon made it super easy to follow directions and made it possible to capture the shots. Lin and Jirsa are very organized and asked us to do a mood board ahead of time so we can give our photographers good ideas of what we were looking for. They make sure to do engagement session and wedding day final meetings to make sure everyone is on the same page. I had special requests to do a message in the bottle last minute for our engagement shot and Brandon and Rabia were so sweet to help me with the surprise. I had really wanted the sparkler photo and the lighter I brought was not working! Brandon was insistent we keep trying to get the fun shot in. Thank you so much to the team! We already got some teaser photos back and couldn't be more happier with the results! Hands down if you are looking for a team that is artistic, detail oriented, patient, and is willing to go the extra mile for you then look no further! More...

After having seen some of Lin and Jirsa's wonderful photos on my Facebook news feed over the years, I knew that I wanted to use them for my own wedding. They are on the pricier side, but the price includes 2 photographers (1 of them is the main photographer who also photographs the engagement session) and 1 additional photographer/lighting assistant for the actual wedding. My main photographer was Mike Santos. My husband and I enjoyed working with him. His laid back personality made him comfortable to be around. He also gave us directions on how to position ourselves so that we would look great in our photos. Overall we really enjoyed our experience and our photos! I'm glad that I was able to have them capture our special day. More...

Without a doubt the most incredible photography business in the wedding industry. We chose a very dim lit venue with zero natural lighting. We needed someone whose skills could capture the romance and drama and cinematic vintage feel we wanted. We decided to go with master photographer Justin Lin, did our engagement photos which turned out stunning and an ode to our special vintage fall wedding day. Justin is very, very creative and really takes the time to listen to whatever style you want and desire. They do a questionnaire and Pinterest board to help better understand your photo style. I am a meticulous person so I was very particular and Justin just absolutely blew our minds!!!!!  We can't thank Bekka, Emmie Leena and the whole team for putting up with us. We truly know that these photos will be our most treasured and valued wedding keepsakes for the rest of our lives. You MUST choose them, they deliver the most cinematic, creative, dramatic and colorful vivid images you could ever ask for. We will certainly refer them to everyone. My now husband was hesitant at first and now can't stop thanking me for making us choose them as our wedding photographers. Justin is so sweet and he is all about getting those awesome shots! Also, Albert is the MAN!!! He must have thrown my veil over 50 times to get the shot!  LolHands down THE BEST VENDOR and decision we ever made! More...

My husband and I were exceptionally particular about which photographers and videographers we would use to capture our wedding. That was one of the most important aspects for us as the pictures and videos will last forever. We met with several vendors and after meeting with Lin and Jirsa we knew they were the ones. They did an incredible job capturing all of the moments throughout our wedding day. They were lovely, professional, easy to work with and most importantly so much fun! They made us feel comfortable and captured our authentic selves. We spent many hours getting our picture taken, throughout our wedding day, and knew that it would all be worth it because the pictures would be phenomenal. They were. We received our pictures a few days ago and words cannot describe how gorgeous they are. They captured so many amazing moments and you can literally feel the love that we have for each other and towards our family and friends. I cannot be happier with the job they did. If we had to plan our wedding all over again, I would always go back and pick Lin and Jirsa. We are now waiting to receive the wedding video and literally cannot wait because based on the pictures we received, the video will be insane! More...

For our wedding, we knew we wanted something edgier than the faded vintage look. We also like the timeless and classic feel that these full color images bring. Our wedding was captured in a vibrant manner that appealed to not only us but many compliments from guests as well. From the moment we sat down with Chris, I knew we would go with him. I loved how we knew exactly what we were getting from the first moment we sat down to meet him to the end of the wedding day where he stuck through with us through thick and thin.  We knew exactly what we were getting into without any big surprises on the big day.Chris is calm and assertive without being aggressive.  He can hand hold but he doesn't really have to. I felt his quiet confidence throughout the day and it made me personally feel safe. Like, no matter what happens, what small hiccups and bloopers occurred during our day, Chris would make it look beautiful. And, that's mostly all that matters, right? We got our images back in a timely manner and immediately we sat down and watched the whole dvd of our images- twice. It felt amazing to relive the glory and the craziness that went down. (We got a little tipsy lol, and one guest went too far with the drinking and dancing and landed in the ER: Chris even got THE SHOT that took him flat on his face: it was a flip of some sort)Long story short... I am happy we chose Lin and Jirsa for our wedding. He was a comfort (weird, but almost like a friend) on the day and we felt confident in his way of seeing the world. More...

My husband and I chose to go with Chris as our lead photographer and are beyond happy with our choice!!! We also chose to go with Lin and Jirsa for our videography, and are so happy to have worked with Michael! We had a fusion Persian and Indian wedding and it was a day filled with lots of traditions, which means lots of photo opportunities and running around!Before the event, they spent time understanding our vision and what was important to both of us. They had great tips and helped us prepare for the day ahead so we could maximize the photography. Additionally, they had experience working with our planners, which just made it even easier for us. During the day of the event, the team was everywhere, taking tons of photos, and capturing great moments! Due to their experience with both cultures, they knew exactly what to capture and where to be, which was such a relief as a bride. The team was so much fun to work with and had such great energy throughout the day, and even kept us going when we were tired! They whole team was so genuine and kind! They were interested in our events and invested in getting us great photos! Both my husband and I were pleasantly surprised about how at ease we felt with everyone!! After the event, we began working with a service consultant, Emi, who has been so amazing!! She answers all our questions and has been so patient with us throughout the process. Our photographs are flawless and fantastic!!! Going through our catalog was like reliving the day all over again and every shot seems better than the one before it!! Overall, Lin and Jirsa as a company understood that this day was very important to us. They had probably photographed tons of weddings before ours but not once did I feel that this was routine to them. Everyone understood how excited we are about our wedding and were beyond patient with our questions. They worked hard to make this what we wanted and understood that this was a once is a lifetime thing for us! My husband and I are so happy to have such beautiful photos and memories that will last us a lifetime and can't thank Chris and Michael enough!! More...

Lin and Jirsa team were a blessing to work with. We had the pleasure working with Joseph for our engagement photos and our wedding photos for day of. He was easy to work with and was able to coordinate with our videographer cordially.  I can't wait to see our photos. We had our engagement photo album at the wedding during cocktail hour and it was a hit. Thank you guys for all that you do! :D More...

Lin and Jirsa photos are incredible. I am so glad that I hired them as our photographers. They ask you about the styles of photography you like and they make it happen. I have searched through over a dozen different wedding photographers and I strongly feel that they are hands down the best.I also know that Pye Jirsa teaches courses on photography. They are probably the most advanced in technology for wedding photography. I know they are expensive, but they are totally worth it. One way for me to tell if a photographer is really good is to examine their jewelry photos. It is not easy to take a good photo of jewelry due to the lighting. More...

It was a pleasure to work with everyone we came into contact with at Lin and Jirsa, whether it was Justin and his team, the associates who shot our sangeet, and everyone we communicated with via email.  Shout out to Emi! :)  Everyone was so friendly, professional, and easy to work with.  Justin not only made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, but also went above and beyond to make certain shots perfect. He is also very personable and fun, so much so that we feel like we gained a new friend!   Despite the gloomy weather during our wedding, Justin and his team got many amazing shots and captured some moments in a way that made them even more beautiful in the photos than they probably looked in real life!  I love the photos we received from Lin and Jirsa and would definitely recommend them to everyone!

My husband and I are very happy and fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Lin and Jirsa Photography as wedding photographer in April of 2015. Matt Seville was our lead photographers and he was professional, detailed, and amazingly talented with his work. Our engagement shoots and wedding ceremony came out absolutely beautiful! We are very excited to have him and his fellow photographers capture the wonderful memories that we will reminisce in the decades to come. The remainder of L&J team who we work with was also very helpful making the entire process painless and smooth. They were great with communicating with us regarding the contract, logistics, photos and canvas selections, wedding album design, etc.Thank you for the beautiful work! More...

Lin and Jirsa Photography is the absolute best in wedding photography. Justin Lin was extremely professional, caring, and coordinated throughout the marathon of our wedding day. My husband and I aren’t the most photogenic folks, but Justin brought the best sides out of both of us during our engagement shoot (shout-out to our second shooter Emily!) and our wedding day! He’s got a great artistic eye and perspective that shows in our photos. The day-of team accompanying Justin (shout out to Marcel and Albert) were phenomenal. They worked so well as a team - coordinated at every shot! Everyone on the Lin and Jirsa team you’ll meet (Jackie and Maria to name a few) are the best! Their communication, organization, and customer service truly complements the stunning work of the team. We can’t thank Justin and his team enough for capturing and preserving the most beautiful moments of our wedding! More...

We loved our experience with Lin and Jirsa. After researching and contacting numerous photographers, we chose Lin and Jirsa based on their unique photography style. Although they have multiple photographers, everyone has a similar style that is consistent throughout their blog. Our photographer, Matt, did not disappoint! He shot some amazing photographs and was creative with the angle and lighting in some of our shots. Our engagement session included our dog who was not very cooperative, but Matt was still able to take some great photos. On the day of our wedding, Matt and the other photographers were very professional and everything went smoothly. Our wedding photos turned out amazing and we received them within a few weeks of our wedding. Everyone we dealt with from the Lin and Jirsa team were friendly and quick to respond to all our questions. Would definitely recommend. More...

We had our wedding in 2014 so this review is long overdue. I had the opportunity to work with Lin and Jirsa’s photography team and the experience was fantastic from start to finish. Jackie, the studio manager at the time, was very professional when I first got in touch with them. She provided all the information regarding the type of packages that were available and also gave us ideas on how to approach and plan the styles that we want for our engagement and wedding photography. We did not get the chance to work with the master photographers as they were not available on the day of our wedding, but the associate photographer, Daniel, was able to perform a very competent job and put our mind at ease. We met with Daniel to discuss the types of photos that we wanted and also go over the time frame and schedule for the day of the wedding. Daniel did a great job on our engagement shoot and we were able to visit a few scenic spots given the amount of time for some really wonderful photos. Lin and Jirsa’s team is more than professional during the day of the wedding. They arrived early to set up all the pre-wedding shoots and made sure we have ample time to get ready so the wedding will be on time and on schedule. The photography team was fantastic and took many memorable photos that will be treasured for years to come. More...

Our photographers were the fabulous Nicole, Brandon, and Enoch.I was supposed to have a conversation with Nicole about the schedule and my artistic preferences a month before the wedding, but I never got around to it, and turned in my mood board waaaaay late. That too, I wasn't sure if what I liked in other people's photos would work for us (kind of like clothes and makeup). You definitely shouldn't do what I did, but with only a few days heads up about the schedule and 25 images thrown onto a mood board for reference, Nicole and her team provided outstanding service and the most gorgeous photos that featured all the cool photographic styles I had included in the mood board. Aside from the amazing quality of the photography (which doesn't need explanation because you can see for yourself) their service was amazing. They were very experienced with South Asian weddings. While I was having internal panic attacks because literally nothing went as planned, they rolled with it and expertly improvised the plan so that we could make the best of the situation. In fact, when I was changing out of my ceremony sari and into my reception lehenga, all the people who I expected would be there had to rush off to do their own outfit change. It was my makeup artist and Nicole -- neither of whom are South Asian -- who ended up helping me put the whole ensemble together.  Imagine a photographer who knows what pattern your churis should be in and how to pleat and pin your dupatta and secure your side tikka!    While Nicole was doing my portraits, Enoch and Brandon were with my husband. I worried about my husband because he's the type of guy who is not aesthetically inclined and needs lots of guidance (which I didn't properly give him beforehand). But I needn't have worried. Whatever issues they might have come across, they handled it because the portraits and details they took of him were straight up out of GQ. My husband and I both found Nicole's team super friendly and professional.  In sum, Lin & Jirsa was a wise investment because they're crazy talented at capturing the best of you and your wedding.

Andrew from Lin and Jirsa was our wedding photographer. Although they are on the pricier side, I have absolutely no regrets hiring them! Andrew and his team were friendly, professional, and so easy to work with! The company asked us for a 'mood board' so that they can get a feel of what kind of shots we liked. Andrew knew every single one of the shots I had pointed out to him that I liked and captured it on film! We love our wedding pictures and will cherish them forever! More...

It's been two and a half happy years since our big day and I have only recently recovered from the stresses/horrors of the entire engagement/wedding process from ring shopping to feeling like a human ATM used by the various vendors to dealing with some vendors who were not so professional (see my other reviews) in order to write this review.  Lin & Jirsa was the epitome of QUALITY!  People say "you get what you pay for" and this process reminded me of that.  While L&J cost an arm and a leg (and a kidney and my firstborn's first year's contribution to his 529) to have co-owner Justin Lin be our photographer, I am reminded that it was well worth it every time I see our wedding album! Our pictures are just as stunning as all the ones featured on their blog/website.  They perfectly captured the happiness and magic of that day, which is a wonderful thing because that day was such a blur when it was occurring.  From the initial meeting in order to find out what our style and wants were to the delivery of the album, Justin and his team were consummate professionals who treated us like we were VIPs.  They've done this so many times that you have nothing to worry about and they are as low-maintenance as you can get with a wedding vendor.   You can have the fanciest wedding dress with the poshest venue and the most elegant and lavish reception, but if you have any joe schmoe photog off the street capturing that special day, you won't have much to remember your special day by years down the road when you may want to share the experience with your kids and all that remains are these photos!   While I'm sure you could get similar, almost as good pictures from another cheaper photographer, I would, and have, recommended their services to many friends because I feel you get quality, consistency, and peace of mind with L&J.

I did get an e-mail asking for a review, and typically I don't like being asked to review but we loved them as our photographers.The bad:  It is really really expensive.  You may or may not care if you are even considering hiring them, but a complete wedding package here could easily be the first year tuition for your firstborn.  Google that cost.  But it's okay that is why we have Orange Coast College.  With that said, you will have the most beautiful pictures that anyone has ever taken of you.  Just look through their blog and albums and you'll see what I mean.  Don't worry about not being photogenic or ugs because they are pure professionals at making you the best looking you've ever looked.  I stumbled upon their blog many years ago while googling god knows what.  I fell in love with their style of photography and at that moment my incredibly single self had just chosen my wedding photographer.  When I finally was getting married (yay!) I went to the 8 year old bookmark saved on my browser- Lin & Jirsa Photography. Their communication from beginning to end is very thorough.  You will get plenty of e-mails from various departments every step of the way and everybody I encountered was very down to earth.  We had Chris as our photographer and he was really cool, professional, and fun to work with.  Assistants were also very professional, but it stood out to us at our reception photos that even their super assistant photographer who did our entrance photos (you would understand if you've ever been to an AzN wedding) would make sure we were still posed in every single shot.  She would tell us to stand in certain ways, both hands on the bouquet, etc... and when you do like 100+ of the same pose in an hour, I imagined she would mindlessly click but she didn't!  They are really great about capturing details and looking back at one of your images, you will easily step back into that moment and remember what you felt.  I think their images really speak for themselves.  People always told me that something always goes wrong your wedding day, but if you have Lin & Jirsa I can vouch that it definitely will not be your photographers.  Call early and make sure they have your day available!

Lin and Jirsa is simply amazing at what they do. You cannot go wrong with choosing them to capture your special day. My husband and I had the pleasure of having Chris and Alec and their team as our photographers for our wedding day, and they were so professional yet comfortable to have the entire day. Fast forward 10 months later - We liked Chris so much that we also asked him to do our maternity photo shoot, and he was again such a blessing to work with. He went above and beyond to make a 9 month pregnant woman have a smooth photo session. We highly recommend Chris and his team. You will not regret choosing Lin and Jirsa as your photographers for your special moments in life. More...

We chose Lin & Jirsa for our engagement and wedding photos and are very pleased with the results. From the get-go, the studio associates responded to our emails promptly and professionally. Our main photographer, Alec, was really great to work with--easy to talk to and very experienced. On the wedding day, several people in the bridal party mentioned how great the photography team was. There were a few images on my mood board I wish we had captured better, but I overall recommend Lin & Jirsa. In my experience, it's a well-oiled machine that delivers beautiful pictures. More...

Before I was even engaged I knew that I HAD to get Lin and Jirsa as our photographers! Once we finally booked them they were so great in communicating with us. I was busy with school and was having a hard time trying to find out when we should do our engagement shoot, but they made it work even with last minute changes. We had Emily do our engagement and it was our first time doing any type of photography so we thought we were going to feel and look awkward, but she was so friendly and made us feel comfortable. Our engagement photos turned our amazing!

For our wedding we had Marcel as our lead shooter and he called us a couple days before the wedding to make sure he jot down all the looks we wanted. Talking to him made us feel at ease. He actually got us more excited for our wedding and to take pictures. The day of the wedding he was so nice, fast, and efficient. We were on a time crunch since some things were pushed back because of the rain, but we didn't feel worried at all with Marcel. He made everything work! We just received some sneak peak pictures and they were AMAZING!!! We cant wait to see the rest!

Lin & Jirsa is composed of a group of amazing photographers and videographers who produce top-notch photos & videos. But not only are they awesome at what they do, but they also have the most amazing personalities & presence! It was such a pleasure to work with these guys, & I would recommend them to anyone & everyone I know.
We were lucky enough to work with Chris from Lin & Jirsa and his team for both engagement & wedding photos, & David & his team for wedding videography. We honestly could not be happier!
Starting with engagement photos. Chris & his assistant went above & beyond to capture the perfect shots. I'm not kidding when I say they literally fluffed my dress, fixed our hair, climbed rocks at the beach, & even went waist deep into ocean water trying to get the perfect shot! Chris is amazing -just when you think he's probably exhausted from shooting for hours, he asks you if you're open to taking a few last shots. It's so awesome when your photographer is 10x more committed & invested than even you are when it comes to getting "the shot".
After finishing our engagement shoot I thought "this guy is amazing". Hard to believe that he topped himself at the wedding! He was enthusiastic but calming at the same time. For a busy bride with a packed bridal suite hours before the wedding, that combination is priceless. He captures the mood & storyline of the day with ease. He is a true artist and we are so lucky we got to work with him and his team. Our photos are perfect -we couldn't be more thrilled with how everything turned out!
Not only are the photographers and videographers awesome, the entire Lin & Jirsa staff are equally amazing. I was lucky enough to work with both Jackie & Leslie. We talked via email & phone for the last year. They walked us through every step of the process -booking the team, talking about timelines, getting hair/makeup advice, etc. They were incredibly prompt, informative, and responsive.Can't say enough about the entire team!

These guys went above and beyond just photography on my big day and actually were very nice to an outside videography team we are family friends with. While I have not seen any of the images yet I can tell you they are worth it! Alec - He has got a calm but happy energy - he walks you thru poses, tells you how to deal with smile exhaustion (it's a real phenomenon) and if you start to tense up he makes you aware of it and asks you to relax. He works with everyone really well and honored requests of our parents (which was usually more family photos) but kept checking on us to make sure we were okay with everything. The reasons I think he is beyond awesome: 1. he didn't judge me when I ate a bunch of fries while sipping blue label (he even opened my ketchup for me *insert heart eye emoji here*) 2. he honored my request to do my pre reception photos on the beach - even warned me about oncoming waves (there was a close call). By the end of the day I was legitimately sad that he was leaving - I felt like I found my long lost best friend, we did part by breaking it down on the dance floor for a minute - which looking back on it, I wouldn't want to part any other way. Emily - What a team player this girl is. She had to deal with my now husband and his groomsmen which is no easy task. She always has a smile on her face and was constantly running around but was incredibly easy to talk to/get a long with. Shawn - aka (Neil, Neal, Neel, pursue holder/model, tree/sofa climber, pillow fluffer, interior designer, jewelry holder) He was amazing, he went above and beyond what he was supposed to do and did it with a smile. He constantly had us laughing. He did what he had to do for the perfect shot. Overall, I think having these three by my side on my big day made it even better. I would highly recommend Lin and Jirsa to all my friends/family. More...

We had the most amazing experience with Lin and Jirsa! Sarah and Meghan were a pleasure to work with. They were so much fun and our pictures turned out amazing! I can't stop looking at them. We plan on working with Lin and Jirsa in the future and referring all our friends! Thank you for making our wedding so much fun and for capturing the magic! More...

My favorite vendor at my wedding was Lin & Jirsa! Working with everyone from the studio managers to the lead photographer and assistants was extremely easy. Their professionalism was on another level. Photography was #1 on my priority list and Lin & Jirsa delivered without a doubt. It was fun working with the team for both the engagement session and wedding day. Our lead photographer knew how to make my husband feel comfortable even though he is camera shy. They pay a lot of attention to your moodboard and make sure they take pictures aligned with your vision. Even though they only took pictures at our venue once, they did an amazing job scouting and finding unique spots. You won't regret booking them! (P.S. Chris and Marcel - you guys were awesome!)

We used Lin and Jirsa for our engagement shoot and wedding photography and cinematography. Our lead photographer was Andrew. We loved our engagement shoot, and Andrew was great to work with. They paid great attention to detail, were very considerate, and they were attentive to our preferences. The wedding photographs were great as well. Although in the end we didn't end up getting all of the photos we wanted and some of the pictures included us or family members with eyes closed, in general most of the pictures were great. Unfortunately the VIP list of family members and close friends didn't seem that it was fully utilized, as a large amount of candid photos were of people who weren't as close to the bridal party. Overall however, we were very satisfied with out photos and with the photography team. They were very nice and respectful and we enjoyed working with them. More...

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Chris (and his talented team) of Lin & Jirsa. We had our engagement and wedding photos as well as a video of the big day done completely by this group of talented individuals.Everything was prepared in a logical sense and his team expressed clearly what we had to do and how we had to do it. As someone who is not really a picture person, I am astounded by what they were able to accomplish considering the source material ;-). Chris and his team communicated well with our coordinator and made the entire experience quite enjoyable.We received our wedding photos and video not too long after the ceremony and are ecstatic with the results. These are memories that we will be proud to display in our home and share with our future children. Many thanks to Chris & Co. for braving the heat and helping us experience and remember the happiest day of our lives. More...

We were very impressed with our engagement and wedding photos. Joseph took the time to get several shots from various perspectives and locations. At our wedding guests commented that they were all over the place taking pictures. Since so many pictures were taken it was fun to go through and look at some of the moments we missed. These are pictures that captured the moment so they will last forever. More...

Lin & Jirsa are incredible, best photographers in LA! We live in New York City and were married in LA, Justin and Joseph worked with us from NY via phone and email, they even accommodated our busy schedules when we were in town to help prepare for our wedding day. On our wedding day, they showed up promptly and kept us on schedule the entire day into the evening. They kept the tone and environment fun and full of life. They were extremely professional and considerate, in no way pushy or negative. Lin and Jirsa truly listen to what you want and your expectations from a photographer at your wedding. They delivered superb service and photographs. Our pictures are incredible! We get compliments from the images posted on Facebook, etc still, over a year later. We could not have asked for a better experience! I have and continue to share their name with family and friends. More...

Even though we were planning long distance, Lin and Jirsa Photography made everything stress free, convenient, and they were able to communicate efficiently on all of my concerns. Joseph was great to work with and very creative. They did and incredible job working with us and our family members and were able to capture so many details and priceless memories. I would definitely recommend working with them for your special day! They were a perfect choice for us! More...

After our initial meeting with Lin and Jirsa, we cancelled all other appointment we had with other photographers. They are THAT good! We are proud to show everybody our engagement photos and they are very good at capturing all the important moments during the wedding. I especially like the system they use to make sure they are able to capture all the shots you have in your mind. They help you set up a pinterest account and have you show them a revolving theme that you like. They not only meet your expectations, but exceed them in all aspects! We never posed for any pictures, Chris spent a few minutes with us before the engagement session and it all went so smoothly! In addition to the amazing photographers, the staff is always quick to answer any questions we had. They were always answered promptly. On the day of the wedding, we never had to worry if they were going to capture any special moments. Everybody was always following us and making sure every special moment is captured. And the pictures are amazing! All my guests keep telling me how professional the photographers were. Choosing a photographer is a big decision in the whole wedding process. Choosing Lin and Jirsa is definitely a choice that we do not regret at all. More...

We gave them examples of what we liked and then they did the rest. On the day of the wedding we didn't have to do anything. Daniel and the team were ready and started right on time. The canvas shots they made for us our staples in our home. They are beautiful. I highly recommend Lin and Jirsa for all your photography needs.Sincerely,Sandy and Chris More...

The Lin & Jirsa team captured so many beautiful moments without many the photo being staged (example the pre-wedding photos). They truly captured the day in a candid form which makes the day go by less stressful. The photo look completely natural. Lin & Jirsa vision is stellar, the photos speak for themselves More...

Lin and Jirsa is amazing. We absolutely do not regret booking Lin and Jirsa for our wedding.Looking at their website and past work, their photos are technically very consistent but more importantly, the people in the photos and the photos themselves look amazing.We were set up with Justin who was very friendly and easy going. At our consultation session, it didn't even seem like we were talking to a photographer, more like a friend we were catching up with. We were just chatting and getting to know each other; very very casual. He spent a little bit near the end to show us some of his past work and how he worked with the couples to get those shots.During our engagement session, Justin and Albert led us around downtown L.A. and took photos of us. Again, it felt hardly like work, more like strolling around and taking pictures. Justin is very good when it comes to posing the couples he's working with and really makes sure we look good. I will admit, I can be very un-photogenic and stiff and working with Justin was the complete opposite of getting your high school yearbook portrait taken.We even goofed off for a little bit; during some downtime, Justin had his assistant and me work the camera and reflector on him because he wanted to “experiment”. Really, where can you find a wedding photographer that was this much fun to work with?After every photo he took, Justin showed us and made sure we were ok with it. The few times that something seemed off to us, he did not mind redoing the set.On our wedding day, Justin, Marcel (sorry if misspelled), and Liz were flawless. I don't think they missed anything and the photos look amazing and really help us relive that special day. My wife and I still laugh and smile looking through them. And sometimes we smile because we remember the extra work they did, how our photographers laid down on a table or stood near the edge of a rocky cliff, just to get the shot.Again, Lin and Jirsa was amazing to work with. They may be pricier than most of photographers you will inquire with but I wouldn't have been happy with anyone else. Weddings are already stressful and frantic enough but Lin and Jirsa went above and beyond to make sure we got nothing but beautiful photos of the smiles, tears, laughs, people, etc. on our very special day.Much thanks, Lin and Jirsa!

What an amazing team! Can't say enough good things. Our engagement shots were set in Venice, CA and Justin and Joseph nailed it. Bikes, graffiti walls, beach shots, the canals. They spend the entire morning with us to get the best shots. And then came our wedding day - they are so nice, so professional, and just so good. Our wedding was set on the beach in Santa Monica - we got amazing reveal shots, beautiful touches photos, sweeping shots on the cliffs of santa monica and down on the beach. They really go the extra mile to get special, one-of-a-kind shots. As an extra bonus- we were a two-gal wedding and it was just before it was legalized. Any nervousness we had about how to do this or how to make our wedding feel just like any other normal wedding was out the door once the team got started. They are the greatest. Beautiful photos, a wedding video that made all our friends and family cry and beam, and a day we'll never forget :) More...

Talk about a labor of love! My husband and I got married three years ago in LA (my hometown). I hired Lin & Jirsa for our wedding and couldn't have been happier with their services. From the initial consult, to the pre-event festivities (we're Indian and have a lot of those), to the actual wedding day, their photography was superb and they were terrific to work with. I was so happy with our wedding pictures. Soon after, I moved to Maryland, we had our first child, and then our second...And Lin & Jirsa contacted me a few times about creating my album but I was too busy with, well, everything! So finally, three years later, I got around to it. And Lin & Jirsa didn't give me any grief at all. They worked with me and remembered my initial requests as though my wedding had just taken place! I am THRILLED that my album is now complete. I know my 2-year-old and 7-month-old will get a kick out of it as well. :) Time flies when you're getting married and are in the hands of the best photographers out there. Thanks Lin & Jirsa, for capturing every moment of that very special weekend. More...

We used Lin & Jirsa Associates as our photographer for our wedding last year and we could not have been happier with our choice. Timothy Kwon was our lead photographer and he was by far the best person we worked with for our wedding. Tim was super enthusiastic during both our engagement shoot and wedding day, and he seems to really love what he does. My husband and I had never taken professional photographs before and were totally awkward when it came to posing and looking natural, however, with Tim's detailed guidance, our engagement photos turned out great. On the day of the wedding, Tim and his team were really helpful with keeping on schedule for the day and getting to/taking pictures at the various locations we had planned for the day. We were really happy with our wedding photos and the quality of the editing. We definitely recommend Lin & Jirsa! More...

After receiving our photos from Lin and Jirsa Photography, my husband and I felt like we had the chance to relive our wedding night. The photos are breathtaking and the quality of work speaks for itself. My husband and I originally hired a different photographer to photograph our wedding. He was the preferred vendor for our wedding venue. Let this be a warning to future couples, always do your research and do not always go with the preferred vendors. This should have been obvious but we were convinced that he knew the venue in and out and the venue loved working with him. He was a great guy but photos are forever and his weren't the ones we wanted to looked back on 25 years from now. But I'm not here to talk about him. After a few exchanges and a few retakes of our engagement session, we decided to part ways with him and lose our deposit in the process. This is about 2 months before our wedding date and we were referred to Lin and Jirsa. We ended up going with Lin and Jirsa Associates due to the pricing and Nicole and her team blew us away. She was so professional and she knew her craft. The lighting in every picture is perfect. She photographed everyone I wanted her to (I had a list of many many people). She was so nice and fun to work with. We got the package that includes 4 albums. My husband and I have been working with Maria on our album design. She is a total sweetheart. The photos and video are the only things you take home from the wedding. The dj will go home, the flowers will die, the dress will be in storage, the tuxedo will be returned, the food and cake will be eaten etc. Photos and Videos are forever. If you are going to spend the money, spend it on the things that will allow you relive the happiest day of your life. And trust me, the team and Lin and Jirsa will not disappoint. More...

It's been 2.5 years since our wedding, but I still can't say enough positive things about Lin & Jirsa! We recently relocated back to SoCal from NYC, and went to their studio to complete our wedding album. We worked with Maria on our album both while we were in NYC as well as when we were back in SoCal. Maria is outstanding- she is so patient and she truly wanted us to be happy with our albums (she sat down with us to go through each album page by page!). When we chose Lin & Jirsa for our SoCal wedding, we based our decision almost solely on their portfolio online (since we lived in NYC at the time). We did not have time for an engagement shoot, so we did not know what to expect with working with them.They were super professional and extremely nice. Pye set up a Skype meet up so we could get to now each other a little better. What really impressed me is that Pye really paid attention to my Pinterest board with some examples of photography I liked. I figured it would be used for inspiration, but he actually remembered it enough to point out we could do some of them on our wedding day. We literally got the exact shots we wanted, which I did not expect at all.They really know what they are doing and we got some simply amazing shots. They are so quick and knowledgeable, it really took so much anxiety off of us to enjoy our big day (pictures are super important to me and it was literally the only thing I cared about getting messed up, other than the getting married part of course!).I highly recommend Lin & Jirsa and we are so happy with our pictures!!

I cannot even begin to describe how happy I am that I chose Lin & Jirsa for our wedding photographers! We just got all of our photos back and I don't even know where to begin! I don't know how I am going to narrow them down! I have literally hundreds of incredible photos from my wedding! I had fallen in love with Lin & Jirsa based off of the photos I saw on their blog, so I crossed my fingers that my husband would like them in person. My husband has had a few bad experiences with photographers so I wanted to make sure he liked whoever would be shooting our wedding. Well, he did! Chris was our main photographer. We met with him and Jackie during our initial meeting and they both were friendly, professional, and easy to talk to. And I think that is what makes Lin & Jirsa really stand out: not only are the incredible photographers, but they are also awesome people! It is so important to get along with your photographers because it will show in pictures if you are uncomfortable! We did our engagement shoot with Chris and the photos came out amazing! He did a great job of capturing our personalities. Several of my friends mentioned that they were the best engagement photos they have ever seen! Chris also shot our wedding with a second shooter, Marcel. They both were awesome! They were quick and professional during the formals and couples session. As for the ceremony and the reception, half of the time I didn't even realize they were there! They were like ninjas, snapping away without distracting from the ceremony or the party. I have beautiful, artistic photos of my husband and I. They literally look like they are out of a magazine. But I also have incredible candids! They caught candid expressions and fleeting moments perfectly. Our parents laughing during the ceremony. A bridesmaid tearing up. Our guests having fun on the dance floor. I even have a photo of my husband and I laughing mid spin while he picked me up in his arms during our first dance. They literally were able to capture our expressions when we were spinning in circles! I doesn't get much better than Lin & Jirsa Photography! They are professional, quick to respond to emails, easy to work with, and will give you stunning images that you will have for the rest of your life! Their blog speaks to how talented they are but I can vouch for how great they are to work with! They truly are the perfect wedding photographers! More...

We worked with Lin & Jirsa Associates for both our engagement and wedding photos. The team that worked with us were great and were open to photo shoots that we wanted to take for both the engagement session and at the wedding. Everyone was very professional and they were very timely in all correspondence. Our photos came out great! For the wedding day, they scoped out a great location for our first look. They also found other parts of the property that made for fantastic backgrounds. One thing I was disappointed about was that we didn't get the dramatic background/sky engagement photos at the beach that they are well known for, which is one of the main reasons that I hired them for those photos. I guess with the weather/sky that evening, there wasn't much they could. Just a heads up that scheduling of your session is key but ultimately you're at the mercy of the weather/sunset that day. We didn't get copies of all of the engagement photos that we took that day until I asked about specific shots that we took that I had requested but didn't see in the digital copies. They had me come in and review all of the photos and select the ones that I wanted (then they edited them) so fortunately in the end, we got what we wanted from the shoot. There are lots of wedding photographers out there to choose from but the Lin and Jirsa team definitely pride themselves on high quality work and making sure that the customer is happy. Anytime we had questions or concerns, they were there to help and do what it took to resolve any issues. You'll be pleased working with L+J or LJA! More...

Choosing Lin and Jirsa Photography for our wedding and engagement photography was the best decision we have ever made, next to deciding to get married in the first place! Pictures and videos are so important to us...our friends joke that our lives are the most well-documented out of anyone they've ever seen. When it came time to start thinking about wedding planning, the first and most important thing we did was search for photographers. I remember I had seen an amazing shot on Facebook from an acquaintance's wedding, and I needed to find out who took that photo. Sure enough, it had the Lin and Jirsa logo along the bottom and the rest was history. Every photo on their website is flawless and looks like a work of art. My first concern was location; I was temporarily devastated when I thought they only worked in LA and Orange County, but thank goodness, they travel! They were eager to work at our wedding in Santa Barbara. Our initial meeting with Pye Jirsa was one of the most fun afternoons my family and I have ever had. He is so easy to get along with and feels like instant family! This is so important when meeting photographers; to feel that level of comfort and to be real and honest with what you want for your special day. We couldn't wait to spend more time with him! They went above and beyond at our engagement session on Victoria Beach in Laguna. Every idea I wanted to try was accepted and built upon in a way I could never have dreamed. Their level of innovation and thinking outside the box was exactly what we were looking for. They spent an extra 2 hours on the beach with us so that we could incorporate the beautiful stars into our pictures! We had the best time and every photo looks like it could be in a magazine. Our wedding day was perfect. Everything that we had discussed in our pre-wedding meeting was executed to perfection. Pye and his team were everywhere and added so much to the wedding prep. More than just photographers, they were our friends and we were so happy to share those special moments with them! They arrived so early in the morning to scout out perfect locations for our couples portraits. I truly knew they were amazing when it started raining and they had to think on their feet to come up with new locations to shoot given the weather. The images that they created with the rain, umbrellas, and the most beautiful backgrounds I have seen with the water dripping across the photos are out of this world. We could not have asked for a more perfect situation. It was obvious we were dealing with real professionals who wouldn't be thrown by anything! All 1400 photos we received were breathtakingly beautiful, and I don't know how we are ever going to decide which to hang on the wall! Our video is absolutely beautiful. It brings tears to our eyes within the first 4 seconds! They did a spectacular job of integrating the wedding speeches with touching moments during the ceremony and reception. It looks like a movie you would go see in a theater. The cinematography team was genuinely friendly and a delight to be around on our special day! We are so thankful for these videos to cherish and remember the best day of our lives. Everyone in the studio was very friendly as well and answered all questions so promptly and happily. Jackie is amazing! Using Lin and Jirsa was the best decision and we will definitely use them for any future events! More...

After seeing the style and quality of Lin and Jirsa's work, they were our top pick for being our wedding photographer. We were a bit hesitant about hiring a SoCal photographer for our bay area wedding but after meeting Justin for the first time, we knew they were the one for us. Justin was very friendly and funny but also took his art seriously. We had a great time shooting our engagement photos in SoCal! After seeing the quality of those photos, we knew we didn't have to worry about our wedding day photographs which turned out beautifully. Thanks Justin!!! More...

I'm not one to write reviews of any sort very frequently, however, I believe that for exceptional service, taking a few minutes to share my experiences is the least that I could do.My wife and I got married in Southern California in November 2013. The venue itself was picturesque but the pictures that Lin & Jersa captured took everything to a whole new level! We thought that wedding planning was difficult, but truthfully, selecting the best of the best pictures to compile our wedding album proved to be two year process! We just couldn't narrow the cuts down because we loved so many of the pictures (a #firstworldproblem if there ever was one, indeed). Their love for the art of photography demonstrates itself in their professionalism, attitude and enthusiasm. They truly made my wife and I feel like we were stars and for that, we are truly grateful. In the months and days leading up to our wedding festivities, they were easy to connect with via telephone and email, and the pictures were sent to us well in advance of the stated date. Because I'm from Toronto, we had a second reception two weeks later and contracted a different photography team for that event. One of Toronto's best by reputation, their work paled in comparison, so we have a first hand experience about how much of a difference a team can make. If there is any team better than Lin & Jersa, i'd be shocked (and probably wouldn't believe it still). A+ work through and through! More...

Marrying a photographer myself, I left the selection of our wedding photographer to my husband and will forever be glad that I did. We truly are thankful for having had the privilege to work with such a leader in the field, Lin and Jirsa Photography. We truly cherish the beautiful and unique imagery/video that came from our engagement shoot and wedding day.The LJP team captured every magical moment and detail of who my husband and I are together and were never worried a moment was missed. We were lucky to have an all around all-star wedding team and LJP was truly one of the most professional companies we had the privilege to work with. Their team was friendly and personable and offered great posing advice which made our friends and family so much more comfortable and natural in front of the camera.My husband and I had a very particular style in mind that deviated from traditional wedding photography. We were worried we wouldn't be able to find a photographer who would fit our vision for fashion editorial with Grecian influences. Prior to booking we were able to sit down with our lead photographer, Pye Jirsa, and walk him through our vision. Without hesitation he listed off several creative ideas to capture the look and we could tell he truly understood us.There were so many things that made LJP top notch on our wedding day. From the team being on-site early to allow for ample set up time to their efficiency in moving through the important shots without ever making us feel rushed. We couldn't believe how stealth they were throughout the whole day; our family and friends still talk to us about how incredible and unobtrusive the team was.While I could go on for so much longer, I will end with this. I would recommend LJP to friends, family and strangers. Their personal touches leading up to, during, and post the wedding day is unrivaled. I had never seen a photographer set up a slideshow of some of the best images throughout the day/ceremony during the reception. This was so special and truly impressed the guests. They even surprised us with a framed picture from the ceremony in our hotel suite, such a magical touch. Thank you times a million to Pye and the whole LJP team for giving us such beautiful images and video to remember that day for the rest of our lives. More...

Not only did the pictures turn out exactly as I envisioned but I appreciated the good communication and professionalism of the company throughout my wedding experience. Big shout out to my photographer Joseph who made sure to capture all the moments I asked for and making the experience fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend using this company you will not be disappointed! More...

We are very happy that we chose L&J for our wedding photographers. When we decided, we went to their office and they told us all the available options for our wedding. We decided to go with a Matt Saville. He was going to be our photographer for our engagement and wedding ceremony.During the engagement session, Matt made us feel relaxed and we were always comfortable. He experimented with some of his shots and they turned out great!During our wedding, we had Matt and second photographer. They split up most of the time to get as many different shots and angles. Even though they took a lot of pictures, they never felt like they were in the way. Matt also got creative incorporating our wedding party. It was a lot of fun.We worked with Lindsey in creating our wedding album. She was very patient with us as we picked out the photographs we wanted. She even made some adjustments to make sure that we were happy. It was a very smooth experience.Lin and Jirsa photographs have this unique feel to them, which my wife and I love. They also have a lot of options; whether they are options for your photography session, your wedding session, or your album creation. We highly recommend them for your wedding. More...

Photographers were the first vendor we looked for after we had the venue booked. We were part of the bridal party for our friend's wedding who chose Lin and Jirsa for their photography. We were so impressed with the quality of the photos from their wedding. We had another photographer did our engagements photos but we didn't like them as much. So we decided to book Lin and Jirsa for our wedding and redo our engagement photos with them as well. Although the price initially was expensive, our photos came out fantastic and worth every penny! 100% recommendation because of the details and journalistic style from the photos. We received endless compliments.In a more individual review, Justin was our lead photographer. He also did our engagement photos. He was very creative with the poses and backgrounds. He was able to accommodate our requests while maintaining the style and quality of his techniques. For our wedding, we fell in love with every photo he took but we were especially amazed by the night time photos. Nothing beats Disneyland fireworks captured in the background!Overall, we were extremely happy with our decision. It costed more than what we had initially budget for photography but we glad we made this possible. They turned out to be our best vendor!!! More...

Lin and Jirsa photographed our wedding and they were great. Their timeless style was the best out of all the photographers we interviewed. Working with them was easy and they were accommodating to all our needs during a 5 day Indian wedding with multiple venues and events even when there were two events at the same time in two different locations. I recommend them highly. More...

I could not have been happier with my experience with Lin & Jirsa.  Our photographer, Alec, was incredible.  Not only did he take beautiful photos, but he made my camera-shy husband feel completely at ease through both our engagement shoot and our wedding photos.   Lin & Jirsa was super accommodating when we only had one week of availability for our engagement photos.  It ended up pouring rain on the day that we had scheduled our shoot but they made it work and our photos turned out beautifully.  For the wedding, the photographers made the event seamless.  They were unobtrusive but still got all the shots we wanted.  We got married in June and received our photos about 8 weeks later.I wholeheartedly recommend Lin & Jirsa to anyone wanting to enjoy the memories of any special event for years to come.

We can't say enough good things about Pye and his team - they are the absolute best! We were so lucky to have found a team of photographers who were creative, down-to-earth, fun, energetic, extremely professional...the list goes on. We had the pleasure of working with Pye as the lead photographer, Matt (as second photographer), Bilal (the lighting assistant), Carlo (Behind the Scenes) and last but not least was Leslie (Studio Manager), who was the behind the scenes star that helped coordinate a successful shooting day. She made tons of helpful suggestions and was always super responsive to any of our questions or concerns. If we weren't limited to a five star review, we would be giving them seven stars!Pye personally scouted out our location hours before our wedding began so he knew where to take us for the best lighting and the best views throughout the venue (Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu). Our venue was very spread out and we had a long list of requested shots. Pye and his team not only coordinated everything flawlessly but also personally transported us around from location to location. His team truly worked together as a team - for example, his lighting assistant would sprint around to clear away items that were in the way or even to straighten my tie, etc. It was also a pleasant surprise for my family from Taiwan when Pye busted out his flawless Mandarin while setting up shots. After the wedding, many of our wedding guests commented on how great Pye and his team were, so they not only made an impression on my wife and me, but also others at the wedding.  All in all, Lin & Jirsa was one of our favorite wedding vendors by far and we would recommend them to any one else who wants great photography on their wedding day. We have seen several preview shots so far from our wedding, and we can definitely say that there are some really nice pieces of artwork! We are excited to see the rest of our shots in the next few weeks! More...

I researched over 90 photographers before deciding on them. I wanted a photographer associated with a studio that had trained photo processors that would edit the photo to a particular style I liked. Small photography businesses tended to only edit photos with their own style.Sarah was my photographer and she was amazing. You can pay 50% less and get a mediocre photographer at another studio or maybe a great new photographer starting their own studio. The 50% less guy will get the first kiss, family portraits etc. But they will not be able to pose, frame, and capture works of art like Sarah did. See my posted photo to their yelp page. The photo is seriously stunning.My only regrets was of not paying the extra $$ on an engagement session. There were a lot of photos/poses/styles that I did not like (despite liking them when I saw them on Pinterest). More...

On my wedding day Chris and his assistants were amazing. So thoughtful, unobtrusive and friendly. I had guests tell me afterwards that they blended in so well and felt like guests. Even my now husband was super impressed.
The teasers they've delivered so far are gorgeous. I cannot wait to get the full set. You cannot go wrong with these guys!

What can you say other then perfection. We had heard great things about this company and after meeting with several other photographers after just one meeting with Justin - there was simply no other option. The team there was professional, timely, accommodating and specific to our needs. Justin did our engagement shoot and we had so many ppl ask us about the save the date photos and engagement shoot - ppl had never seen such beautiful and unique shots! Just was a guru - he would pass by a hole in the wall and his amazing eye would tell him it would be a great shot - and he was right every time. Our wedding was this past Sat and Justin (master photographer) and Jason (Videographer) and their huge team of experts joined us every step of the way. I don't need to see the final look to know they will be the most spectacular photos and videos. We had so many compliments on their presence at the wedding capturing every look and moment - Justin made our wedding and Lin and Jirsa was the best decision we could have made for the most important night of our lives.

I had a great experience with Lin and Jirsa Photography. Booking them was SO easy and they have so many different packages available to meet your financial needs. Even if they don't have a package that has exactly what you want, they will customize one for you. There is no question that LJP is the best in the industry. They respond very promptly to emails and if there is any issue, they resolve it right away. They truly want to make you happy. Onto the photography itself, Andrew was our lead photographer and he was amazing. He is very artistic and pays attention to detail. My husband and I are not comfortable in front of the camera and don't really like to take pictures, so Andrew was very patient with us and made it as painless as possible. He got some amazing shots, but my favorites were the candid ones. Andrew and his two assistants did an amazing job at capturing the moments. We didn't have a videographer, but with the pictures we got we didn't need it. He really told the story of our day through the pictures. Lastly, we got married on Saturday, March 19th, and received all of our images on Friday, April 1st. Less than 2 weeks after the wedding. We technically got married before the busy wedding season, but still they originally told me 4-6 weeks and we got them in less than 2 so I was very happy with that!!!! Anyway, great service, great work, and I recommend them to everyone! More...

The Lin & Jirsa team did a phenomenal job with our wedding photos and video! They really seem to love what they do and are very professional. We didn't give them a lot of time with our wedding prep shots, but they still made sure they got all the important stuff in. We were impressed with how they were able to work with the timeline we gave them. They also really listened to what we wanted and adjusted as necessary to accommodate our spur of the moment requests. The turn around time on our video and photos was better than we expected. We got the photos and video less than a month after we got hitched. They did a great job capturing both the artistic shots we wanted as well as the traditional, candid, and fun shots. We could not speak highly enough of how the video was edited. We absolutely loved how our first dance was edited to juxtapose our practicing on the dock with the actual dance at the venue. Everything they did for us was everything we could have hoped for and more. We highly recommend Lin & Jirsa to anyone getting married! More...

I would give them more than 5 stars if I could. They were one of the first vendors we knew we wanted to hire when we got married. Their photography packages are not cheap, but you get what you pay for. They also have an associate package that is packaged at a lower price point, but it still isn't cheap. We went with an associate package and our associate photographer was Joseph. We later added cinematography later on and was assigned Clarence as our videographer. However, they are worth every single penny that we spent on them and you get what you pay for. If you go with Lin and Jirsa, you will not be hiring a single man run photography studio, you will be hiring a TEAM of talented individuals. They captured so many moments and they took pictures non-stop before and during our wedding. They had an assistant and another person shooting detail shots. They were meticulous and the photographers were wonderful to work with. Another photographer, Marcel took pictures of my now-husband and his groomsman and they told me how nice and how much fun they had with him. It was wonderful because my husband is not comfortable with taking pictures. Our guest all said how beautiful our pictures turned out. They focused so much of their time, energy, and attention on us. We could just hire them for life and help us capture moments in our lives. hahaI went to a number of weddings as a guest and bridal party member. I do feel like Lin & Jirsa is just the gold standard and no other company can come close. They were easy to work with and communicate with. We were amazed with how many pictures we got and how it turned out.We are now waiting for our wedding video and I just can't wait. I will update our review with a video review. =) More...

Choosing Lin and Jirsa Photography for our wedding and engagement photography was the best decision we have ever made, next to deciding to get married in the first place! Pictures and videos are so important to us...our friends joke that our lives are the most well-documented out of anyone they've ever seen. When it came time to start thinking about wedding planning, the first and most important thing we did was search for photographers. I remember I had seen an amazing shot on Facebook from an acquaintance's wedding, and I needed to find out who took that photo. Sure enough, it had the Lin and Jirsa logo along the bottom and the rest was history. Every photo on their website is flawless and looks like a work of art. My first concern was location; I was temporarily devastated when I thought they only worked in LA and Orange County, but thank goodness, they travel! They were eager to work at our wedding in Santa Barbara. Our initial meeting with Pye Jirsa was one of the most fun afternoons my family and I have ever had. He is so easy to get along with and feels like instant family! This is so important when meeting photographers; to feel that level of comfort and to be real and honest with what you want for your special day. We couldn't wait to spend more time with him! They went above and beyond at our engagement session on Victoria Beach in Laguna. Every idea I wanted to try was accepted and built upon in a way I could never have dreamed. Their level of innovation and thinking outside the box was exactly what we were looking for. They spent an extra 2 hours on the beach with us so that we could incorporate the beautiful stars into our pictures! We had the best time and every photo looks like it could be in a magazine. Our wedding day was perfect. Everything that we had discussed in our pre-wedding meeting was executed to perfection. Pye and his team were everywhere and added so much to the wedding prep. More than just photographers, they were our friends and we were so happy to share those special moments with them! They arrived so early in the morning to scout out perfect locations for our couples portraits. I truly knew they were amazing when it started raining and they had to think on their feet to come up with new locations to shoot given the weather. The images that they created with the rain, umbrellas, and the most beautiful backgrounds I have seen with the water dripping across the photos are out of this world. We could not have asked for a more perfect situation. It was obvious we were dealing with real professionals who wouldn't be thrown by anything! All 1400 photos we received were breathtakingly beautiful, and I don't know how we are ever going to decide which to hang on the wall! Our video is absolutely beautiful. It brings tears to our eyes within the first 4 seconds! They did a spectacular job of integrating the wedding speeches with touching moments during the ceremony and reception. It looks like a movie you would go see in a theater. The cinematography team was genuinely friendly and a delight to be around on our special day! We are so thankful for these videos to cherish and remember the best day of our lives. Everyone in the studio was very friendly as well and answered all questions so promptly and happily. Jackie is amazing! Using Lin and Jirsa was the best decision and we will definitely use them for any future events! More...

We hired Lin & Jirsa for our wedding photographers after much research. After viewing Lin & Jirsa's photographs I knew I had to have them for our special day. We were on a tight budget but did not want to compromise on photography since it is a HUGE part of a wedding. We worked with Jackie, the studio manager, on a package that fit into our budget. They were so accommodating and very prompt with all responses. We always felt very well taken care of and like they had everything under control. Our wedding day photographer was Nicole and she was so professional but still very personable. She made us feel relaxed and we knew that she had everything under control. Our wedding photos are absolutely stunning! I can't say enough great things about this company. Although they handle many clients they made us feel special and kept us in the loop with every step. I 100% recommend hiring them for any occasion. Thank you Lin & Jirsa!! More...

When my wife and I were searching for wedding vendors, we decided that photography was going to be one of the most important things to us. Based on our research and referrals from friends, we decided to go with Lin and Jirsa. Since day 1, the team was easy to work with and very responsive to emails and phone calls. Chris Lin was our main photographer and we were very impressed with how professional and fun him and his team of photographers were. They were constantly shooting and always had an idea for the next pose ready to go. They all work really hard to get the perfect shot!We are very happy with our photos and it was very difficult to decide and a select few to include in our wedding album but Nicole, our album designer, was very helpful and patient with us. There were so many photos that we loved! She took the time to listen to our suggestions and sat down with us to put our final draft together. We can't wait to get our album soon! All in all, we have nothing but great things to say about Lin and Jirsa and if you're on the fence about going with them, just do it, you definitely won't regret it! More...

Mr Pye help us shoot my engagement photos.It's a two day session in OC and LA. My finance and I both terriable to posing for photos. But With Mr Pye, it just feels right.He is very responsible, they asked me to pin all the photos i like or i must have before started shooting, and Mr Pye really went through every photos i have posted on the website. I was surprised when he mentioned the photos or pose or locations I wanted during the shooting. His attention to detail make everyone work with him admired his professionalism. We don't feel any nervous at all. Jackie, the studio manager, she is so nice and patient. She gives lot of valuable suggestions. She helps a lot. Every single photos we received from their studio is amazing. I cannot describe how excited we are that we chose them for our engagement session. We both loves the photos they delivered to us, and all of my relatives and friends told me they love my photos , they all asked who did your engagement session. we are really appreciated for Mr Pye and all other team members, they helped us to created a unforgettable memory! If you want to find a photographer for your engagement session or wedding session, they definitely the right one! More...

Justin has such a creative vision for pictures. He was also very patient with us as we were figuring out our shots.  We just received our wedding photos and they are AMAZING! We highly recommend Lin & Jirsa!! More...

One of our best wedding decisions was hiring Lin & Jirsa as our photographer! They have lead (Lin & Jirsa) and associate photographers, and we opted for the lather due to our budget. Believe me. The quality, creativity, portrait and candid shots were all still amazing. We are beyond thrilled with our engagement and wedding photos. All the sample photos that you've seen are very similar to the type of photos that we received. :)

Sara Hurley was our associate photographer while Maria Fameron and Nicole (?) were the assistant photographers. They were all a joy to work with and very professional. On the wedding day, they were early and spent time reviewing the venue and notes I had provided them. I created a Pinterest page that captured examples of wedding images that I liked, and they did a great job capturing those same styles and key moments.

Maria was also our wedding album designer. Yay! With so many amazing photos to choose from, it was very hard to narrow down just a few to put into our 10-spread album. She was very patient and flexible throughout the process, providing several rounds of layout options. She was great! :) As a precaution to future newly weds, 10 spreads is not enough and adding additional spreads can add up A LOT. :(

Overall, we are very happy with Lin & Jirsa and definitely recommend them!

Yay!  With so many amazing photos to choose from, it was very hard to narrow down just a few to put into our 10-spread album.  She was very patient and flexible throughout the process, providing several rounds of layout options.  She was great! :)  As a precaution to future newly weds, 10 spreads is not enough and adding additional spreads can add up A LOT. :(Overall, we are very happy with Lin & Jirsa and definitely recommend them!

We hired Lin and Jirsa to do our wedding pictures and ended up hiring them for our engagement shoot and videography for the wedding as well! We had both our engagement shoot and wedding lead photographer, Pye! He is so fun and makes every shot count. The lighting skills he has makes shots absolutely breathtaking! We couldn't have asked for more! I first saw some of their photos and decided to share with my (then) fiancé and he  was sold as soon as we met with Pye and spoke with Jackie who explained the packages and pricing. Our wedding day was perfect even though it rained, it cleared up right before I had to walk down the aisle (outdoors). Pye had our first look outside before it started to pour and he quickly got a beautiful space inside and the pictures were amazing. Everyone who saw them were praising Lin and Jirsa! We feel so lucky to have found them just in time for our wedding! Thank you Pye and everyone we worked with at Lin and Jirsa for our beautiful memories (and of course Facebook cover photos ;) ) More...

I hired Lin and Jirsa Photography to shoot my engagement photos, wedding photos, and wedding video.  I worked with Pye Jirsa and Tim Kwon, and their teams, for photos and video respectively.Lin And Jirsa Photography is hands down the best photographers in So Cal.  I think they even shoot in other parts of the country, so let's say that they're the best photographers in the country.  And for so many reasons. PROFESSIONALISM: Out of every vendor we worked with, this team was the MOST professional, respectful, organized, and overall a pleasure to work with.  You can tell there is a certain culture they have there.  Everyone is happy to work with each other, they love what they do, and they love their clients.  You can just feel it.  When you are busy from planning the wedding and interacting with so many people, your experience with a vendor is crucial...to your sanity!  PRESTIGE: They teach classes to photographers all around the world about their photography and videography style.  They have an online magazine with like tens of thousands of subscribers. They have made a huge name for themselves and are well known in their industry. People who know wedding photography were wowed when I told them Lin and Jirsa was shooting my wedding. QUALITY: This is the reason why you choose a photographer - to have vivid images that capture the biggest day of your life that is specially one-of-a-kind.  Every couple wants the best.  Well, here you are reading reviews to find the best - they are the best.  They are the best because they not only capture your big day but they will ELEVATE what you experienced to another level and put it in photos/video.  Our pictures are out of this world.  You WILL NOT get the same canned poses/photos from that wedding two months ago that had their wedding at the same venue you have.  They not only know their stuff, but they are ARTISTS.  They try new things, get uncomfortable for you to get the right shot, and LITERALLY make you look like you're in a magazine, in some fictional fantasyland, and even manipulate not so great surroundings to make you look amazing i.e. weather, a branch, lighting etc.  They have so many styles, you have have anything.  They also had the challenge with us of shooting a same-sex couple, which I do not think they had experience with before, but they adapted like pros and it seemed like they have done it a thousand times before.  They just knew what looked good. VALUE: Ok real talk. Money.  So if you're someone like me who purposely does not get the best of something because that means you will be paying the most money, then push that out of your brain when it comes to your wedding photography/videography NOW.  For something like the biggest day of your life, which you only get once, and when you think of your photos/video lasting FOREVER, which stretches your investment for literally every day you have it, then you must get the BEST. right?  So I convinced myself of that early on. My husband did not agree. I got into arguments with him about if the cost was justified in the beginning.  But after we saw the quality of the work and met with the team in person we were completely on board. And after our wedding day I had the satisfaction of winning the first "I was right" moment of our marriage!  We are not only happy about hiring Lin and Jirsa, but we are RAVING FANS of them.  We now have the most amazing magazine/movie-quality photographs and videos of the most amazing happy day of our lives and honestly looks much better than how we experienced it!  To have that memory is PRICELESS and the value you get from Lin and Jirsa is worth ten times what they charge.FUN: The team is just fun to be around.  They were such NICE people.  All of them.  I could feel that they genuinely cared about my wedding, even though they do this everyday.  Photographers/videographers are with you the whole day and you don't get that interaction with any other vendor so having fun and feeling relaxed with them is so important.  I didn't even realize that this was important until the day came and we spent all that time together.  When things took a turn on my wedding, which happened often, they were calm and adapted to each change and overcame any obstacle we ran into like pros.  I was impressed with that.In conclusion, book them NOW.  I am not only glad I hired them, but I am PROUD that I got the opportunity to work with them because the memories they captured for me and my husband are timeless, and people ask us all the time who shot us.  I enthusiastically tell them Lin and Jirsa.ps. I hate that I had to call them vendors in this review because I feel like they are now friends.Pm me, I'd be happy to share more of my experience. More...

Absolutely Amazing! Everyone at Lin & Jirsa is extremely professional and the entire process from our initial consultation meeting to the actual photo shoots was seamless. Their team went above and beyond all of our expectations. If you decide to book Lin&Jirsa (and I do not know why you would not), we highly recommend Pye Jirsa.  Not only did he put together an amazing engagement shoot of us, but his fun loving personality put us at ease from the very start. Pye and Alec Nguyen were our wedding photographers and we couldn't have asked for a better team! Thanks to Pye, Alec and the Lin&Jirsa team, we have gorgeous wedding photos that we will always cherish. By the end of it all, we had gained two new friends and we look forward to working with them again! More...

I cannot even begin to describe how happy I am that I chose Lin & Jirsa for our wedding photographers! We just got all of our photos back and I don't even know where to begin! I don't know how I am going to narrow them down! I have literally hundreds of incredible photos from my wedding! I had fallen in love with Lin & Jirsa based off of the photos I saw on their blog, so I crossed my fingers that my husband would like them in person. My husband has had a few bad experiences with photographers so I wanted to make sure he liked whoever would be shooting our wedding. Well, he did! Chris was our main photographer. We met with him and Jackie during our initial meeting and they both were friendly, professional, and easy to talk to. And I think that is what makes Lin & Jirsa really stand out: not only are the incredible photographers, but they are also awesome people! It is so important to get along with your photographers because it will show in pictures if you are uncomfortable! We did our engagement shoot with Chris and the photos came out amazing! He did a great job of capturing our personalities. Several of my friends mentioned that they were the best engagement photos they have ever seen! Chris also shot our wedding with a second shooter, Marcel. They both were awesome! They were quick and professional during the formals and couples session. As for the ceremony and the reception, half of the time I didn't even realize they were there! They were like ninjas, snapping away without distracting from the ceremony or the party. I have beautiful, artistic photos of my husband and I. They literally look like they are out of a magazine. But I also have incredible candids! They caught candid expressions and fleeting moments perfectly. Our parents laughing during the ceremony. A bridesmaid tearing up. Our guests having fun on the dance floor. I even have a photo of my husband and I laughing mid spin while he picked me up in his arms during our first dance. They literally were able to capture our expressions when we were spinning in circles! I doesn't get much better than Lin & Jirsa Photography! They are professional, quick to respond to emails, easy to work with, and will give you stunning images that you will have for the rest of your life! Their blog speaks to how talented they are but I can vouch for how great they are to work with! They truly are the perfect wedding photographers!Wedding Photos: linandjirsablog.com/hart…Engagement Photos: linandjirsablog.com/beau… More...

When looking for a wedding photographer, I think I went through hundreds of options. Ones I was referred to by friends, family and other brides. Ones I found on yelp, IG, thumbtack and just by googling. None compared to when I came across Lin & Jirsa. Their pictures were out of this world. Their website answered questions I didn't even think to ask and they responded so quickly to every email or call I made. I first was in touch with Jackie and Yoko who are just exceptional. So nice, so helpful. They helped me find the perfect wedding package that fit exactly what I was looking for. They had me create a mood board for my dream wedding pictures and encouraged me to add as many pictures as I wanted and helped me put together my day of timeline (which I found to be the hardest part of wedding planning).

Our main photographer was Marcel who we had the pleasure of speaking with for over an hour about who we were as a couple, what styles we were looking for, and going over everything such patience and expertise. I was so impressed and just so relieved. I knew I had nothing to worry about. Marcel, Dean and Maria showed up early and I was so surprised to find that Marcel had looked through my entire mood board and knew all the pictures I wanted and made sure I got them! He is such an artist, so sweet and so dedicated to his work. He made me so confident when taking pictures. My fiance hates to take pictures but Marcel put him at ease and at the end he actually was into taking them! He even texted me the next day to thank me and wish me so much love and success with my marriage. Dean and Maria were also so sweet, so helpful, and wonderful.

We haven't gotten the pictures back yet because its only been a week since the wedding but what I got to see on the camera was breathtaking! I would recommend Lin & Jirsa to everyone! I can't imagine a company more organize, thoughtful, professional and talented.

I'll keep it short and sweet: when I first got engaged and started looking at wedding photographers, I didn't think I'd actually be able to get them. I thought they'd be too expensive and out of my reach. And then I met with them and my dreams came true!!! They fit our budget! We had a giant Indian wedding so had a bajillion events.Andrew was our photographer and David was our videographer. HOLY SMOKES THESE GUYS ARE AWESOME. Every single person who has seen our photos is in awe of them.Yoko and Jackie are SOOO nice and respond so quickly.So professional and do an AMAZING JOB. I can't stop looking at my wedding photos!!!!!! More...

Justin did our photos in September of 2013. He also did our engagement photos and we decided to do video with them too. The engagement photos were great and the wedding photos and video were good. The team was professional and punctual. They were more expensive than other places we looked but we definitely found their styles to be unique and wonderful so we went with them. Nearly 2 years later, I'm not sure if I can appreciate the premium we paid. There are a few photos that we enjoyed but when we went in to design our photo album our designer starting noticing some photos that were not shot, kinda made us frustrated. My wife didn't like the album design process as she seemed to have to continue to repeat herself about touch ups that she had already asked to have fixed. I'm sure there are many people that had wonderful service from them, as can be seen by there many great reviews, but just being honest about how we feel. We are about to make the final payment for our album, hopefully it turns out great. Thanks Justin and the L&J team. More...

We used Lin and Jirsa for our engagement and wedding photographs and are so happy we did! Matt was our lead photographer and he did a great job making us feel comfortable being photographed during our engagement shoot, which made taking photographs on our wedding day feel much more natural, since neither my husband nor I were used to being photographed. Both our engagement and our wedding photographs turned out beautifully. Matt and his team captured a great mix of beautiful wide shots as well as close-up, intimate shots, in addition to beautiful shots of the details of the ceremony and reception venue. We are now in the process of finalizing our wedding album details with Maria, and she has been a pleasure to work with as well. The whole process from when we first hired Lin and Jirsa, to setting up the engagement photo shoot, to the entire wedding day, to getting our final prints, to our wedding album coordination have all gone as smoothly as we could have hoped. The entire team is professional and friendly, and I would highly recommend Lin and Jirsa to anyone who’s looking for a great photographer! More...

It has been way to long since my wife and chose Lin and Jirsa Photography to shoot our engagement photo's and wedding. The photographers were one of the few jobs that my wife had tasked me with researching, and it did not take me long to come across the ultimate professionals in Lin and Jirsa. Justin Lin was our main point of contact from when I originally reached out to inquire about pricing and wedding packages. I was so impressed with the quality in their photo's that my wife started to get annoyed because these were the only photographers that I talked about. She immediately thought that I had only researched 1 photographer and was just talking up their work, to save me time in searching for more. When we finally met with Justin in person, we had a very informative meeting discussing the different packages. Justin was a true professional but was also very easy to get along with making both my wife and I extremely comfortable. It was long after our meet and greet that we contacted Justin to lock his team in for our big day. A few short months after this, we met again to do our engagement shoot which we had so much fun doing. Despite driving to multiple locations in Los Angeles, Justin's artistic eye and knowledge of photography produced some of the best photo's we have. It was now time for our big day and Justin and his team were prompt and on time. He took the most amazing photo's of my wife and her bridesmaid's while they were preparing for the ceremony, while his assistant was shooting my groomsman and I goofing around for 2 hours. There is not a single photo from our wedding day that came out subpar, everything from their HiRes shots to candid photo's were absolutely perfect. I highly recommend looking into using Lin and Jirsa Photography for any occasion that needs to be photographed. Their whole staff is extremely professional and they do everything within their powers to make you comfortable during the engagement shoot and big day. We recommend them to all of our friends that are now planning their weddings. More...

Highly, highly, highly recommend Lin & Jirsa. I stumbled across them after googling "professional photographers that can shoot interracial couples" (no joke) and am I ever so happy I found them! Matt shot our engagement shoot and was the main photographer at our wedding. We're still getting complements on both sets of photos. On top of shooting the most beautiful shots around (we have yet to see any other photographers' photos top ours) they are ever-so-helpful with all the other minute details: where to get hair/makeup done, how much time to a lot, recommendations for photo locations for the engagement and wedding day, ect.The best piece of advice we got was not to skimp on our wedding photos, and the awesome thing about Lin and Jirsa is that they're best in the business AND they're affordable. You can;t go wrong with them. More...

Wow. Lin and Jirsa exceeded my expectations for my daughter's wedding last weekend. Jackie, the manager, was in constant contact with me up to the big day, listened to all of my concerns, and did not let me down. Nicole, Emily, and Meghan, our crew the day-of, were organized, professional, and kept everyone, including me and my daughter, on schedule. It looked like a professional Vanity Fair shoot by the time they were done with us. We had them for 12 hours and it was worth every moment. We will relive the day through their photos for years to come. I also highly recommend adding the slow motion booth and the photo booth. It just elevated the party to another level. This company is wonderful and I cannot wait to have them at my next party. These people don't need stars they need diamonds. Thank you, Lin and Jirsa! More...

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Lin and Jirsa - from the initial booking and interview phase through our engagement session, the wedding events, and now our album creation process. Everyone that we've communicated with has been timely in response, kind, and positive =) Our photographer Pye Jirsa was so fun and calming to work with, and the entire team was fantastic day(s) of. It was clear that Pye brought his beautiful creativity to every moment, and just knowing that photography education is part of his philosophy was important to me.We are thoroughly excited about the final photographs and can't wait to see the creative video. We've recommended Lin and Jirsa to multiple family and friends, who've since signed on and are having similarly great experiences! More...

Joseph was a true professional and all the other photographers were very pleasant, helpful and willing to go that extra mile especially dealing with laaaarge Indian families. The post production contacts like Maria and Nicole were also very helpful in guiding us to get the proper memories together and designing of albums. I am already planning to use them for my son's wedding in a couple years. More...

Lin and Jirsa has been our family photographers for our engagement shoot, wedding photography, maternity photos, newborn pictures and baby shoots. Five years ago, we searched for wedding photographers all around Orange County and we're so glad we found this talented group of photographers. They've not only become our family photographers for all major events in our lives, they've also become good friends. The whole team is organized, creative, down to earth and really fun to work with. If you have any doubt, just see the consistency on their blog. I recommend them to any in the Los Angeles or Orange County area looking for a great group of artists. More...

I hired these photographers for a family photo shoot and never regretted it for a second. Their studio manager, Jackie, is on top of it! The scheduling and booking was really easy and the communication the entire way was excellent. The actual shoot was great. Matt Saville was our photographer and he got some great creative shots mixed in with beautiful posed formal shots. These are some of the best photographers the Los Angeles area. I follow their work on Facebook and on their photo blog and I absolutely love their creativity and attention to detail. I'll be using them again for the other major events in my life! More...

This review is long overdue! We got married in 2011 and used Lin and Jirsa as our photographers, and they were one of the best vendors we worked with at our wedding. We specifically had Chris and Justin (brothers) to do our photography and they were both very professional, courteous, and just downright good fellows! We did two separate locations for our engagement photo session and both times, it was a blast with Chris. He really made us feel comfortable and didn't try to rush us nor try to put time limits in our sessions. It felt like having a friend take our photos. It was the same feeling during our wedding as well. Throughout that hectic and busy day, we did not have to worry at all about the photography, and luckily these guys took some great photos, because we hardly remembered many of the things that happened. Although we didn't officially schedule a couples session during our reception due to time, they were great at looking for a perfect location on their own, then pulling us away for about half and hour to take some of the best photos from our wedding. I was so grateful for that. We had originally selected Lin and Jirsa because we were so impressed with their HDR photos, and their outstanding post processing technique really shows from our finished photos. The whole Lin and Jirsa photography team has been altogether great, from initial meeting with Chris all the way to album creation with Maria. Although we never met Maria in person, she worked on our photo album with all communications being done by email. This really helped us since we moved and it just wasn't physically convenient to meet in person. She was very kind and patient with all the changes we requested and our procrastination, and it was a pleasure working with her as well.Although, we don't ever want to plan for another wedding again (*relief*), we hope to work with Lin and Jirsa again in the future for maybe something a little less stressful! :) More...

My husband and I met with many photographers prior to booking with Lin n Jirsa. As soon as we met with Chris, we knew right away, we wanted to work with them. They made us feel comfortable, and we knew capturing all of our days was very important to them. we hired them for our engagement shoot, our Sangeet party, as well as the Hindu and Catholic Ceremony, for a total of 4 days. They worked so well with us, we are both very camera shy, and they made us feel comfortable and directed us without making it seem artificial, to get the best photos. Our engagement shoot pictures on the beach are so gorgeous. I printed out may of their pictures of just even flowers and made canvases of them because they are so beautiful. All of our friends and family loved them as well. Maria, who does the albums, is the easiest and most helpful person to work with and made us the most beautiful albums. She didn't mind how many times we asked to put in an extra photo or change around layouts, and was very patient. Some of my friends have since booked them for their events and have been very happy. I would book them for any event I have in the future. So glad I found them! More...

My husband and I did a lot of research before hiring Lin and Jirsa to be our wedding photographer and we were so glad we did! We really like Lin and Jirsa photography style and of course their lighting is exceptional! We always get so much compliments on all of our photos from our family and friends. They are a little bit on the expensive side but its all worth the money. You get what you paid for. And we are so happy with the results that its all worth it. We can always look back on our wedding day and relive the memorable moments that Lin and Jirsa helped capture so perfectly.Our experience with working with them for our engagement session and wedding day was awesome! Our photographer, Joseph, was very professional and extremely easy to get along with. His team really went the extra mile to make sure the both of us were comfortable during the engagement session and on our wedding day. My husband and I had so much during our sessions and it even made us bond on a higher level! Don't hesitate on choosing Lin and Jirsa to be your wedding photographer. Choose them now and i promise that you will not regret it!Thank you Lin and Jirsa for making our day so remarkable and memorable!Sophy and Darrick More...

Lin and Jirsa Photography was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We had Matt, Maria, and their team for our big day on July 5, 2014 and it was truly the best day of our lives. We got married at St. Lorenzo Catholic Church in Walnut and our reception was held at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda. The details were so important to us and Matt and his team did an EXCELLENT job with making sure everything we wanted was included. Jackie, the office manager, was great in communicating everything we needed to make it a success and they did not disappoint! The team was AWESOME! They didn't miss anything, even though we had a lot of events on our timeline. From beginning to end, Matt was there, and we were so thankful for his dedication to make us happy! Our videographer team even complimented on how Matt and his team were flexible and easy to work with. My husband and I totally agreed. They were all very flexible and accommodating to our wishes. When we received our photos, we could not be happier. The shots, details, angles, edits, perspectives, and special effects in post production were so amazing! Also, the album design process with Maria was so great too! We definitely love Lin and Jirsa Photography and we recommend their team to anyone planning their special event. More...

Let me start by saying that I always wanted to use Lin and Jirsa for my wedding, even before I was engaged, but I never thought that I could afford their services. My now husband said that I should email them anyways after meeting with several other photographers, who will not be named, and lo and behold, Jackie told us about their associates package. She set us up with Matt and he is AMAZING. I can't begin to express how wonderful the photos came out, and in the process we made a friend along the way too.Their work speaks for itself, but what I believe is even more telling is how Lin and Jirsa have handled unexpected hiccups along the way. We had a few hiccups regarding a canvas print and a parent album, but Jackie, Yoko and Maria went above and beyond and it ended up not being an issue at all. They were constantly communicating with me and sending me updates on progress, which was greatly appreciated. Lin and Jirsa have a team of individuals who work to deliver exactly what is promised, if not more. I am truly thankful to have found them and will continue hiring LJP for all of our significant life events. Thank you again Lin and Jirsa, Jackie, Matt and everyone else we have worked with. More...

It was a pleasure working with Jackie(Justin) as a lead photographer. He was nice to work with and friendly. The family picture came out very well. The photo shoot of the bride and groom at the beach was also really nice.Maria Fameron coordinates the printing of albums and photographs. She was extremely patient, cooperative and pleasant to work with. The entire team - photographers and office staff are very courteous. Thank you for the great photos! More...

Lin and Jirsa is incredibly professional and take really breathtaking photos. We hired Justin's team of photographers as well as Tim's team of videographers for our Wedding and Engagement photos. Both the photos and videos turned out amazing!! Justin was so easy to work with and can communicate fluently in English, Chinese, and Taiwanese. He has an artistic eye for the perfect setting and the perfect scenery. We could not have worked with a better photographer. More...

The team members making up Lin and Jirsa Photography are truly masters of their crafts. From the booking process to the editing of our wedding album our experience with LJP was nothing less than excellent. Their attention to detail goes above so you and your hubby to be look and feel your best! Its easy to feel like the ultimate supermodel during your sessions with them! Our wedding day felt completely stress-free and because I suffer from a little anxiety with stressful situations, our photographers made sure to give me a little room while getting ready so emotions could settle; and on top of that they captured some breath taking moments then. I can't wait to hire them for our next event... first comes love, then comes marriage ... then maternity photos! More...

Lin and Jirsa...what an amazing team of people. My experience with the entire LJP team has been flawless from before, during and long after my wedding! LJP shot my engagement, 3 pre-wedding events and wedding day at the Newport Beach Marriott in July 2014. My package included my sign-in book, 2 parent albums and 2 albums for us as well as a canvas. My master photographer was Chris Lin. He did a great job in making us comfortable...he also did our engagement shoot so we had the chance to meet him before our wedding day. Jackie, the studio manager is super responsive and supportive. Maria and Lindsey, our album designers, also fit the bill of the level of service you can expect from the entire LJP team. I feel like LJP aims to forge a life-long relationship with its clientele...its not just about the wedding. Its about all the memories after you've started this new chapter in life (baby announcements, pregnancy shoots etc etc). I would highly recommend LJP to anyone and I look forward to my continued relationship with them. We heart you LJP! More...

After researching and interviewing numerous wedding photographers, we are very happy we chose Lin & Jirsa to shoot one of the most memorable days of our lives. We chose them because we were blown away by the vibrant colors in all of their pictures and how amazing they are at capturing special details, not to mention how they get the beautiful scenery to pop in their pictures.We worked with Matt and he was just awesome. He actually did something really creative while he was shooting the pictures of the bride getting ready. To make sure the picture of the heels was just right, he needed something to slightly elevate one of the heels. So, he saw a gold Ferrero Rocher chocolate (the gold wrapper matched our wedding rings and wedding color), “ate one for the team” haha, crumbled up the wrapper into a small ball and stuck it under the heel. Brilliant! And the picture turned out great too!They are all such an amazing group of people to work with, and we would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for any special occasion. Thanks Lin & Jirsa!

We absolutely love his work and are beyond grateful to have him as our "forever" photographer. He was so easy to work with and he and his team really captured everything we wanted and then some. Thank you again and we are looking forward to having you document the next chapter in our lives! More...

Highly, highly, highly recommend Lin & Jirsa. I stumbled across them after googling "professional photographers that can shoot interracial couples" (no joke) and am I ever so happy I found them! Matt shot our engagement shoot and was the main photographer at our wedding. We're still getting complements on both sets of photos. On top of shooting the most beautiful shots around (we have yet to see any other photographers' photos top ours) they are ever-so-helpful with all the other minute details: where to get hair/makeup done, how much time to a lot, recommendations for photo locations for the engagement and wedding day, ect.The best piece of advice we got was not to skimp on our wedding photos, and the awesome thing about Lin and Jirsa is that they're best in the business AND they're affordable. You can;t go wrong with them. More...

It is obvious that Lin and Jirsa has received so many 5 star reviews. From the beginning pre-wedding stages to the day of, Lin and Jirsa was phenomenal. They are simply an example of how every vendor should carry themselves - organized, attentive, and superior in their work. Jackie and Yoko were sweet and patient. :) Joseph, one of the associates, was our photographer. A big shout out to him for being fun, creative, and professional! Our engagement photos were AMAZING. We could not have asked for better pictures. He made us feel comfortable especially since I actually hate photos of myself. :) He was able to use his artistic vision on shots and you can tell how seasoned he was with all the improvisation. During our engagement session at a park, there was a random dog passing by with his owners. The dog came to us on our blanket and plopped next to us. Instead of pushing him away or stopping the session, Joseph kept taking pictures. It is one of our favorite pictures! For those that are budget conscious, I would highly consider the associate packages because they do just as great of a job as Justin, Pye, and Chris in my opinion. :) More...

I used Lin and Jirsa for all of my engagement and wedding photography and could NOT be any happier with them! Tim was my main associate photographer and he was extremely time efficient, easy to work with, and professional. For the months coming up to the wedding, we received emails to remind us to check in and share what we wanted from them so that they could give us exactly what we wanted on the wedding day. We just got our photos back and are head over heels! I would highly recommend them to all my friends and family. More...

We used Lin and Jirsa for our engagement and wedding photography and were very pleased with their work. It's no surprise they have a perfect score on Yelp! They are extremely organized, professional, efficient and friendly. From Jackie who helps you book your appointments to the photographers, everyone is great at their job. The quality of their photos are amazing and their photographers know what they are doing. They were reliable and on time to every event. I received both my photos within 2-3 weeks with an easy link to download all my photos. We used Matt, one of the associates. He was very kind, professional and easy to work with. Their prices are very reasonable for the quality of photos you get plus the time and effort they spent shooting and editing the photos. For the engagement shoot we spent about 3.5 hours and the wedding was 8 hours for a total cost of $3800. I would choose Lin and Jirsa again in a heartbeat! More...

Photographers were the first vendor we looked for after we had the venue, we met with several and ended up choosing Lin & Jirsa. At the time I thought it was very expensive- it was more than the other offers I got, but I really liked their photojournalistic style so I went with it. A few months later we actually added on cinematography as well. I would 100% recommend getting both from Lin & Jirsa, seeing them work together it made it evident that they need to come from the same company. I didn't know what to expect from them on the day of the wedding, but I had heard good things. In the early afternoon of our wedding they came to our respective hotel rooms (3 people to each- 1 lead photographer, 1 lighting, and 1 video), and they took over. It was unbelievable how on top of things they were, I can't even describe it you will have to see for yourself. There were so many of them they were capturing every detail every moment it was amazing. I got SO many compliments on the photography team. It was so nice to know we had that covered and I didn't have to worry about it. For example: at one point at the reception my 95-year-old grandma came onto the dance floor and was dancing with me and my mom, for a second I was worried thinking oh I wish Sarah was here to get this! Then I looked up and bam she was already there- it was a great feeling and it let me just enjoy the moment! Lin & Jirsa was worth every penny, I cannot stress enough how impressed I was with them.

Lin and Jirsa are simply amazing. They shot our engagement photos, ring ceremony, wedding and reception. Their collective eye for the perfect shot is unmatched. They are punctual, reliable, and work so hard to make sure as clients we are happy. Not once did they settle for a shot, and the best part was they explained most everything to us making it such an experience. Lin and Jirsa offer comfort and ease to work with, they take their time. They have made it made it easy for us to say that they'll be our photographers for every and any event possible. Their photography style is unique, and unlike any other photos I've seen. Our pictures created that awe affect we all hope for, and the compliments from others that see them are never ending. Thank you Lin and Jirsa for a truly wonderful wedding gift!

What can I say that has not already been said about Lin & Jirsa Photography ("L&J")-- they are unquestionably the best wedding industry photographers/experts who are true visionaries that have a passion and love for their craft and for helping their clients achieve their dream weddings, photo or video shoots and any other L&J session / service that is offered. Working with nature, light, composition, and, of course, their clients, L&J creates gorgeous, breathtaking photos that have made my jaw drop countless times! First, Pye Jirsa is an artistic master.  He is a true visionary, a perfectionist and a dedicated artist who has a talent for telling stories and showcasing emotions through the style, beauty and art of his photography. He is fantastic, and I knew immediately (especially after watching his SLR Lounge tutorials and educational clips) that I would be honored to work with him.  Even before meeting him, I had a gut feeling that L&J would be a perfect fit and that Lawrence and our families could trust and rely on L&J to beautifully capture one of the most important days of our lives. After meeting Pye, I immediately cancelled all of our other photographer  interviews because we knew, without a doubt, that we had found our dream team. Also, Pye is super talented (he also speaks a ton of languages!) and he was born to positively influence the lives of others. Truly! I really respect his morals and principles, and I love learning about how he strives to be the best father to his children, loving and supportive husband to his wife, great family man and a terrific role model, educator and industrious photographer at L&J. Second, the L&J team is fabulous. Jackie Hanson is THE BEST. She is incredibly accommodating, very responsive, sweet, supportive and gorgeous inside and out. She brings a warmth and love to L&J, and I'm so glad that I got to work with her!  She made wedding planning a BREEZE. I also worked with superstars Alec Nguyen, Kaylee Sizemore, Logan Alesso and @shivalry_inc., each of whom were AMAZING. They are so personable and really invest themselves to capturing the most breathtaking moments and all the little details. They are genuinely excited about their work, and they made sure we looked picture-perfect!On a deeper level, L&J inspires people. They have inspired me to really see the world and the beauty of life from the effect last night's rain has on a field of grass to the emotions you feel when you hold your loved one. As a DIY couple, my hubby and I took control of the wedding planning and styling process, and we were very selective in our vendors. After seeing a ton of wedding photographs and working with various photographers as a bridesmaid, I realized that I wanted a photography team that could shoot in a variety of artistic and photojournalistic ways that didn't always look have the regular "soft / filtered" look that seems to be very "in" now. While L&J can accomplish that look, they can do soooo much more. I wanted a vibrant, realistic look to our wedding that wasn't too saturated and that could still show the soft, romantic and lovely touches and details that we infused into our wedding. They work with a variety of advanced and sophisticated equipment and lenses and they are always pushing the boundaries of what they can achieve with their photography, always going great lengths to capture the perfect shot.Additionally, L&J is a professional, well-managed, and superbly run studio. They are so organized and have their process down to a "T". They took care of us every step of the way, and I completely trusted L&J. Plus, everyone LOVES working at L&J. They have great team building and bonding activities-- can I help too?  :) :) See y'all at The 12!Thank you, L&J!!!! More...

Justin was our lead photographer for our wedding and engagement photo shoot. We also used them for our engagement party. Till this day we get compliments on how alive our images look. Justin and the team have a way of brining the moment captured to life. They also have a unique eye and will get that million dollar shot. Aside from their amazing style they are also very professional and friendly. I believe Jackie manages the office and helps organize. She was one of the friendliest people I have ever worked with in the wedding business... and mind you I was a picky bride at times lol I highly recommend them! More...

Andrew is THE MAN!From the first conversation surrounding what we wanted with our engagement photos all the way to the actual wedding day, he was as professional and as PERSONAL as a photographer can get. The way he was able to capture exactly what we pictured was on point! You give him an idea of what you want, he'll ask a few questions to clarify, and he will provide!He was able to capture one of the most happiest days of our lives, which we can look back and relive over and over.If you are looking for a photographer who gives you what YOU want, request for Andrew.If you want a photographer who understands your style through a handful of sample photos, request for Andrew.If you want to HAVE FUN with your photographer..

COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! Lin and Jirsa were absolutely amazing! We decided to go with the "associates" package and Joseph, our lead photographer, did not disappoint. He and his team were absolutely fantastic. Not only did the pictures turn out beautifully, everyone at the studio is a pleasure to work with. I was getting email responses from Jackie and Yoko within the same day which is fantastic when you are trying to get things done during the planning process. This was a bit outside the target budget for photography but the minute I met with them I had no doubt we had to have them for our wedding. These pictures will be with us forever and are memories for us, our guests, our families, and anyone who maybe wasn't able to attend. If you're on the fence or they're outside your budget--just splurge. Worth every single penny.At the wedding there was not one moment was I concerned about the shots they were getting or that there weren't enough, or wondering where they were. The photos from both our engagement and wedding were returned in an extremely timely manner and very high quality. FYI, for the engagement shoot we decided to go with Victoria Beach. The sunset beach pictures were so stunning, we used them for our invitations and got rave reviews from our guests. I will be sure to use Lin & Jirsa Photography for any future events I may have!

Chris and his team were very professional and outstanding. We met with Chris once before the engagement shoot, and had phone conferences once before the engagement shoot, and once before the wedding day to discuss the look we wanted and the timeline of the day. My husband and I are very happy with the engagement session and can't wait to see the wedding day photos. We had complete faith in Chris and his team to capture all the moments of the day. They were on their feet the entire wedding day, running around the venue to make sure they had the best shot. My family, bridal party, and guests were very comfortable with having them around all day. They are not intrusive at all. And they can handle crazy Asian moms and aunties too! Jackie and Yoko responded to my questions quickly and were very helpful with planning the day of timeline as well. More...

Every bride wants a perfect wedding and Lin and Jirsa delivered a PERFECT 10+! When I saw their blog, I knew I wanted them as our photographer and we didn't shop around.  We love their creativity, details and style.  We chose the Master becoz we did not want to skimp on pictures and on your day time goes by so fast you need a professional to capture every moment. Lin and Jirsa have an awesome team - from initial booking, conf calls to engagement and wedding sessions the entire process was smooth and professional. Jackie & Yoko are always on top of things, responsive and friendly. We had the privilege of working with the amazing Chris Lin. He is very down to earth, fun to work with and help us feel at ease throughout preparation and taking pictures. We are also lucky to have Marcello as the lead photographer.  Also a very down to earth and fun guy to work with.  Both photographers and assistant worked every hard with our timeline and found special spots at venue just to get great pics.  We cannot thank you enough.Chris captured wonderful engagement shots and we cannot wait to see our wedding shots. We will use them for future celebrations and refer them to all our friends and family. More...

Their work speaks for themselves and we have gotten so many compliments on the quality of our pictures.  In fact numerous friends have asked for their contact information for their own weddings.  But more importantly, they were so professional and great to work with!  We felt comfortable with the team, we had fun with them throughout the day, and they interacted with our guests so well!  We also got compliments on how nice they were and how hard they were working!  One thing I really appreciated was that they werent stuffy photographers that boast how good they are.  They are confident, yet humble and make sure you know its your day!  The only problem we ever faced was trying to pick a favorite image for our save the dates (we ended up using a collage of 5 images), and to enlarge for our home (its been 9 months and we just barely decided).

After reviewing several photographers and speaking with many on the phone, we chose Lin & Jirsa for our in person interview. We requested a photographer who not only had experience filming Persian ceremonies (my mom is Persian), but Persian-American weddings. Matthew was recommended to us. We met with Matt and hit it off instantly. He was very laid back, had an impressive portfolio, plenty of experience and could tell exactly what we were looking for. We had already shot our engagement photos so we were a bit worried about how working with him for the first time on the day of the wedding would be, but we had nothing to worry about! Matt and Leujay were amazing and did a wonderful job shooting the details of our wedding. Some of the shots were absolutely breathtaking! The editing was great and we received our pictures within a month. All of our friends and family have commented on how amazing our wedding photos are! Everyone we've worked with at Lin & Jirsa have been accommodating and a pleasure to work with. After the wedding, aside from a new spouse, amazing memories and some new bling, all you have left are your pictures. Even if you skimp on other things, don't skimp on the photographer! You won't regret it! More...

This review is long overdue!  We got married in 2011 and used Lin and Jirsa as our photographers, and they were one of the best vendors we worked with at our wedding.  We specifically had Chris and Justin (brothers) to do our photography and they were both very professional, courteous, and just downright good fellows!  We did two separate locations for our engagement photo session and both times, it was a blast with Chris. He really made us feel comfortable and didn't try to rush us nor try to put time limits in our sessions.  It felt like having a friend take our photos.  It was the same feeling during our wedding as well.  Throughout that hectic and busy day, we did not have to worry at all about the photography, and luckily these guys took some great photos, because we hardly remembered many of the things that happened.  Although we didn't officially schedule a couples session during our reception due to time, they were great at looking for a perfect location on their own, then pulling us away for about half and hour to take some of the best photos from our wedding.  I was so grateful for that.  We had originally selected Lin and Jirsa because we were so impressed with their HDR photos, and their outstanding post processing technique really shows from our finished photos.  The whole Lin and Jirsa photography team has been altogether great, from initial meeting with Chris all the way to album creation with Maria.  Although we never met Maria in person, she worked on our photo album with all communications being done by email.  This really helped us since we moved and it just wasn't physically convenient to meet in person.  She was very kind and patient with all the changes we requested and our procrastination, and it was a pleasure working with her as well.Although, we don't ever want to plan for another wedding again (*relief*), we hope to work with Lin and Jirsa again in the future for maybe something a little less stressful! :) More...

There were a lot of emails going back and forth to get exactly what my husband and I wanted and they responded very quickly. On the day of our shoot, they made us feel so comfortable. They told us it would take a couple weeks to get the pictures to us so I was shocked it have the pictures in just a few days. They said it was a slow time for weddings and such. our pictures turned out so beautiful! I would love to work with this vendor for any upcoming event and I would highly recommend this vendor.

Lin and Jirsa are amazing! Their photos are not your traditional wedding photos, which was very appealing to my husband and me when we were looking for a wedding photographer. They are creative; modern and they focus on the post-production of the pictures, which is what sets them apart from all the other photographers out there. Our photographers were Tim and Emily and they did a fabulous job! Everyone was so helpful during the process- From Jackie the Studio Manager, to her Assistant Kaylee and the whole post-production team. It was such a pleasure working with everyone. More...

Lin and Jirsa are amazing! Their photos are not your traditional wedding photos, which was very appealing to my husband and me when we were looking for a wedding photographer. They are creative; modern and they focus on the post-production of the pictures, which is what sets them apart from all the other photographers out there. Our photographers were Tim and Emily and they did a fabulous job! Everyone was so helpful during the process- From Jackie the Studio Manager, to her Assistant Kaylee and the whole post-production team. It was such a pleasure working with everyone. More...

They are creative; modern and they focus on the post-production of the pictures, which is what sets them apart from all the other photographers out there. Our photographers were Tim and Emily and they did a fabulous job! Tim was the main photographer and he was prompt for every meeting we had- in person or on the phone. He is all about the details, and it shows in all of our pictures. Everyone was so helpful during the process- From Jackie the Studio Manager, to her Assistant Kaylee and the whole post-production team. It was such a pleasure working with everyone. My advice to people planning weddings-Don't skimp on the photographer.The pictures are one of the only things you have left from that special day. Thank you Lin and Jirsa for giving us the most amazing wedding photos, it was money well spent! More...

I don't even know how to begin describing how exceptional, how talented, and how wonderful Chris & Alec are - words simply cannot do them justice. We haven't even gotten our wedding photos back yet, but judging from the jaw-dropping, mind-blowingly awesome job they did with our engagement photos, I am absolutely confident that they will be nothing short of phenomenal. Working with Chris & Alec was like working with lifelong best friends; they are kind, compassionate, absolutely hilariously funny and still incredibly professional, making sure they always get the shot and that the coverage of the event is priority number one. My husband and I both feel so honored to have been able to work with the whole Lin & Jirsa team and to have had Chris & Alec be a part of our day! More...

Our wedding was a magical time for us and it's great to see our special three days captured so nicely. These special moments only last a short moment so it's nice that it was captured in video and images we will admire the rest of our lives. Thank you Lin & Jirsa!

We worked for months to pull off one of the greatest moments of our lives...  Our wedding day.  But this wasn't just any wedding...  We were having a flash wedding... Surprise!  Not a single person besides ourselves and our planners were aware of these plans.  So to have such amazing photographers capture every moment was crucial.  We were incredibly fortunate to have an amazing team with us.  "One take Timmy" Tim, our lead shooter, not only gave us amazing photos but he was engaging, professional and enthusiastic throughout the day.  He was willing to run around, sit in the middle of traffic or lay down on the streets of LA to make sure he got the shots.  He was just phenomenal.  Not only did we have a great first shooter, we had two equally fantastic LJP team members with us to capture everything. Andrew was our second shooter and Karen our lighting assistant.  These two were everywhere! Making sure to capture moments that we may have missed and find the perfect setting for photos. This team not only came early but they stayed late to make sure they caught all the greatest moments of our wedding day and night. We were very lucky to have a team who knew how to handle a very excited group of unsuspecting guests who truly love photos of themselves and a happily overwhelmed couple of newly weds on a most memorable day.  Thank you Tim, Andrew and Karen for capturing all the precious moments of our flash wedding day. You really are wonderful people who've made a newlywed bride incredibly happy.  Thank you thank you More...

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Lin and Jirsa - from the initial booking and interview phase through our engagement session, the wedding events, and now our album creation process. Everyone that we've communicated with has been timely in response, kind, and positive =) Our photographer Pye Jirsa was so fun and calming to work with, and the entire team was fantastic day(s) of. It was clear that Pye brought his beautiful creativity to every moment, and just knowing that photography education is part of his philosophy was important to me.We are thoroughly excited about the final photographs and can't wait to see the creative video. We've recommended Lin and Jirsa to multiple family and friends, who've since signed on and are having similarly great experiences! More...

I embrace the bridezilla title.  It means I don't settle for less than perfection.  So when I give 5 stars, it actually means something!the Lin and Jirsa team is everything I wanted in a photographer team.  I'll start off with day 1 (yes, it's going to be along review).  I set up a meeting with them about 10 months before my wedding.  I stepped into their studio and was blown away with their photos.  Goes without saying that I knew I was going to sign them from that moment on!  But what really sealed the deal was actually meeting the photographer (Pye, such a cutie!), that was going to be the primary at the wedding.  He was so calm and talked about how he's shot Indian weddings before, so I knew we were in good hands.Jackie made the contracts part so easy!  She was so incredibly responsive (which is important to this bridezilla!), and open and honest!  I loved working with her throughout the year to finalize details, and let her know of changes as they came up!  I just wish she was able to be at the wedding!  She's got such a sunny disposition and personality!  She makes you feel super comfortable through the whole process.  During the weekend, the team was so professional!  They arrived on time, were curious to my guests, and really understood the demanding Indian family thing!  1 thing that really meant a lot was how calming Pye was during my "getting ready" shots.  needless to say, on top of planning a circus wedding, getting married is definitely nerve wracking.  He would make sure to make me laugh through the process.. not only to get good shots, but also to help keep me calm!  The photos were beautiful.  But you already know that by looking at their blog, so i don't need to go into their quality of work by any means.After the wedding, they were really quick with prepping the wedding album.  I was so wedding'ed out by that point, that I sat on it a few months.  Definitely a bad idea (make sure you do your album when the photos are ready! you'll lose steam otherwise!).  Maria is soooo patient!  the Bridezilla gene definitely didn't leave my body by that point, so she sat with us for 2 hours working on our album to make sure i was 100% happy!!I only have 2 regrets: 1) not having more specific pictures I wanted sent to L&J beforehand so they knew exactly which shots i wanted (I got too busy and wish i spent the time to send them those poses/shots i wanted). 2) not hiring them for my video! ugh totally wish i did! i'll literally be kicking myself forever about that...so i'll leave you with this:their photos are freaking amazing.  again, you already know this.  but their people, the openness, responsiveness, and how freaking nice everyone is is also what makes them worth every penny!

My husband and I choose Lin and Jirsa for our wedding day and we couldn't have been more pleased. We found them by looking through other wedding albums online and their photography caught our eye. The artistic touch and quality of their photos are of no compare. We choose to go with the associate package and had photographer Joseph Anthony and could not have been more pleased. He was fun and professional. The thing we loved the most was that all our our guests did not know the photographers were there. They were able to capture every moment and not be in the way and you could not hear the click of the camera. We also loved the fact that Joseph and his crew did everything to make sure the photos were the best they would move the lighting and posed us to make us look great and made us feel comfortable that way our photos looked natural. The whole team at Lin and Jirsa were super responsive and worked with us to create the package we wanted and to top it all off seeing the photos for the first time did not disappoint they were AMAZING!
