My fiancé and I did engagement session with Peardon Carrillo Photography (Lisa & Alberto). We felt camera shy in the beginning due to the fact that it was our first ever photo shoot, but they made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the process. We specifically wanted photos with more natural poses and they helped us through that to ensure that we got the shots that we wanted. When we received all our photos, we were surprised by not only the quality but the quantity. They really worked with us on the editing style we envisioned and we were really happy with how the photos turned out! Needless to say, we highly recommend working with Lisa & Alberto for a seamless, enjoyable photo shoot experience. More...

Lisa and Alberto are an incredible team! They can capture the mood and moment in such a beautiful way
and the exact way that you envision it! They really do their best to get to know you as a couple and your family
dynamics. With weddings being such a whirlwind of a day, they document every special moment so you can relive
those feelings just by viewing the photos! They are totally worth the investment! These photos are the bulk of my
memory of my wedding day! :)

I first met Lisa and Alberto in 2011 when my husband and I we’re looking for a photographer to shoot our engagement photos. I absolutely loved what I saw on their profile of all the previous couples that they have shot. Upon meeting them we were sold! They were kind, easy-going, Organized and most definitely talented. After our engagement shoot, they did our wedding, maternity photos and when our daughter was born they shot her newborn photos. By this point they became family. We trusted them to capture the most important moments in our lives and we have never been disappointed. They capture every moment, every emotion and turn it into art! It’s just amazing what they do! I recently had planned a wedding for a dear friend of mine, and she remembered after all these years the photos that Lisa and Alberto had shot for us. And she said she must have them, and so she did! I had the pleasure of working with Lisa and Berto again. For as last-minute as these plans were made, they were still just as fantastic as always! If you’re looking for a wedding photographer in the greater Los Angeles area, look no further because they are literally the full package. Not only are they professionals with infinite amounts of experience but they will basically be your friend, photographer and wedding planner! That’s how organized they are. I’ve worked with a fair amount of photographers and I have never met two people that are so passionate and dedicated to the work that they do. And the best part is they edit every single photo that they take!! No other photographer that I’ve ever worked with has offered that . Anyway, thank you Lisa and Alberto for always being fantastic!

Alberto and Lisa are the best! They captured the most important day of our lives with style, grace, and artistry! They made us feel comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful on a very stressful day! They showed up on time, with amazing equipment, and prepared to capture our special day! With all the stress of the day, Alberto and Lisa brought peace, confidence, and serenity to the moment!

Alberto & Lisa did a phenomenal job! They did not miss one opportunity for great pictures with us, our families and our friends! They made sure everyone looked great in all our wedding photographs, and above all were very considerate to all our guest and family! We had a few difficult siblings that did not want to get photographed at times, but they handled it with compassion, and professionalism! We barely even notice it was a problem. They were so efficient! We would use them again in a heartbeat! More...

Peardon Carrillo was so awesome and helpful during every step of the process! They went above and beyond for our engagement shoot; scouting out some beautiful scenery in Joshua Tree national park. Since we live out of state, Lisa and Roberto set aside plenty of time to go over every piece of the shoot and helped us choose each outfit that would be the best fitting for day into the evening time. You can tell how much they care about you and put in a huge effort making us feel like we are their only priority. We are very excited and can’t wait to see what they do for our wedding! More...

Words cannot express how happy we are with our experience with Peardon Carrillo. From the first conversation we felt like we were in the hands of real pros. Lisa & Alberto are amazing people and wonderful artists. We couldn't be more happy with our beautiful engagement and wedding photos! And our friends and family are raving about them! Thank you guys, can't wait for a little one to come so we can hire you to photograph the newborn. Many blessings to you both! More...

We couldn't say enough great things about Lisa and Alberto. They demonstrated professionalism and care every step of the way, from our initial meeting till this day. Their passion, creativity and attention to details played such a significant role in our wedding process. Our friends and family all recognized their hard working and sincerity from the wedding day. Their photo productions are absolutely beautiful and artistic. We are very happy about our choice and we highly recommend them! More...

We LOVED working with Lisa and Alberto for our wedding and engagement photos. They immediately made us feel comfortable, were flexible with our requests - including involving our puppy in our engagement pics and taking a more laid back approach on the wedding day - and our pictures are gorgeous! Our family and friends commented on how they barely noticed photos being taken during the ceremony and how friendly Lisa and Alberto were during the reception. Thank you, Lisa and Alberto! More...

Amanda and I really want to thank Lisa & Alberto for doing such an amazing job!  You guys took very exceptional pictures and captured every memorable moment possible.  We took hours to go through all our picture and we got to re-live our special day all over again!  We are both so very happy we got you guys for the job.  You two were very professional and made the whole experience fun and exciting!  Especially all the time we spent at Lake Balboa with that staggering heat!  We never thought photography could be such a tough job, but you guys knocked it out of the park!  If anybody ever asks us for a recommendation for a photographer, we would definitely refer them to Peardon Carrillo Photography.  We hope you guys are doing great and we hope to cross paths again sometime soon.  Once again thank you both for fulfilling your duties as photographers and for making our wedding one to remember for a lifetime!  We love our wedding photos!

When searching for my wedding photographer I looked at tons of photography portfolios, read all the reviews and finally narrowed the field to 3 photographers. I reached out to them all and Lisa and Alberto were by far the most responsive and easy to communicate with.  I loved the idea that they were a male and female team, working together, shooting and assisting one another to capture the most creative and personal photos that you can imagine.  We first met for coffee and talked about what we were looking for in a photographer and they explained how they work.  I knew right away that we would be very happy with our photos if we worked with them and they by far exceeded our expectations.  They were beyond generous with their time and expertise leading up to the wedding and even helped me think of things to do to make the wedding extra special and the day go smoothly.  Lisa and Alberto even suggested meeting at our location before the wedding to do a walk through of photo ops and this really made a huge difference in my comfort level on the day of the wedding, which of course makes for better pictures!  They were so great to work with on the day, the perfect balance of being there in the background, capturing special moments without interfering, but also being able to "direct" us in great shots we may not have thought of.  They really are a joy to be around and put us and the rest of our wedding party at ease during the entire shoot.  I was sad to see them go at the end of the day!  They both have an amazing eye and are so skilled at what they do.  You will get shots that no other photographer would think of.  They really went above and beyond, which is a true testament to their love and commitment of what they do.  I am absolutely in love with my wedding photos and am so glad I chose to work with Peardon Carrillo Photography!

"When we started to look for photographers for our wedding, we wanted to work with someone who was professional, talented, and flexible. We wanted to have amazing pictures to capture our one, special day and we were more than satisfied with the results. Working with Peardon Carrillo Photography was just that and more...it was a great experience! We were able to get a team of photographers that were full of ideas, suggestions, and helped capture our wedding to the fullest. We got much more than we anticipated with Peardon Carrillo Photography and would highly recommend their work! We were extremely satisfied with the amount of pictures taken and the variety of angles, creativity, and lighting methods used. As a team, Lisa and Alberto worked to be creative, original, and truly captivated our emotions and moments on our wedding day!
My husband and I both come from Hispanic backgrounds therefore both of us have big families. With that being said, we were nervous and somewhat anxious about how and where we were going to take all of these pictures or at least try to incorporate as many as possible. However, to our blessed surprise, Alberto and Lisa were able to orchestrate and strategically plan our day in order to have the opportunity to not only take pictures with most of our family members, but wedding guests as well. I’d have to say that this truly allowed for us to be carefree, enjoy our evening, and we had the best day of our lives. Our photo's look amazing, and now we can re-live our special day every time we look at them! We would truly like to recommend Lisa and Alberto for their fantastic collaboration and amazing talent!"

There are literally no words to describe Peardon Carrillo Photography, Lisa and Alberto’s professionalism is unlike any other, they were quick with their responses easy to work with and super creative!!

This review is long overdue. My wedding was on July 2, 2016 and it turned out to be an amazing night, better than I could have ever anticipated. However, like most brides would tell you, the process leading up to the wedding was extremely stressful. There were many important and expensive decisions that had to be made. One of the major decisions was selecting a photographer that you can trust to capture all the important moments in the night and make you look good in them. I must have spent months looking at different photographers, discussing packages and prices, and deciding which fit our personality and needs best. After meeting with Alberto and Lisa I immediately knew that they were the right choice. They showed me their work and I was blown away with how artistic and beautiful their photos looked. Even though we were going to skip an engagement session initially, after speaking with Alberto and Lisa, we decided to do one. They were instrumental in selecting the engagement session location and had some great suggestions with styling and how to cut costs. I was exceptionally nervous the day of the engagement session and told them that I was uncomfortable in front of a camera and usually turn out awkward in pictures. They rose to the challenge and didn’t skip a beat. They were amazing at giving direction and making me feel comfortable. We spent hours with them taking photos but it felt like we were only there for an hour. I was once again blow away at how beautiful the photos looked and how they had an artistic element to them. The morning of the wedding was very stressful and emotional. There was a lot to do and I had 9 bridesmaids in the hotel room with me so things felt extremely chaotic. Alberto and Lisa showed up to the hotel room on time and were immediately ready to go. They were great at providing direction and organizing our excessively large bridal party. They were tremendously flexible with their time, extremely energetic and professional. More...

We can't say enough about working with Lisa & Alberto. Right from the start they put us at ease and made us realize we made the right choice in choosing Peardon Carrillo to photograph our wedding. They captured all the special moments of our wedding so beautifully, and we are not very photogenic people but we were blown away by how they made us look! They are truly gifted photographers as well as great humans. We can't recommend them more highly!! More...

Alberto and Lisa are the best! They worked so hard to give us beautiful artistic and creative wedding images. We had a warm summer wedding with a tight wedding schedule to boot, but they pulled it off. All with a smile too! My family and I are still talking about our images. We loved them, and we got so many great images. We had a very hard time choosing the best for our wedding Album. Luckily, Peardon Carrillo Photography helped us through it! LOL! We definitely plan to refer them to our friends and family! So remove any doubts, these 2 are the real deal! More...

After a very long and rough search for a photographer, my wife and I were lucky to find Peardon Carrillo Photography. We literally searched in depth through dozens of photographers and interviewed with 10+ and our experience with Alberto and Lisa was a pleasure from the beginning. We liked how they were down to earth and sincere, while also clearly very experienced with photography. We also really liked the fact that both of them are very experienced photographers, whereas with many other companies we found that one photographer is experienced, and the other is not so much! Nonetheless, our wedding day was a breeze as Alberto and Lisa were interactive and friendly, and very active on the cameras. We loved our photo's! Thanks for all your hard works guys! We highly recommend you to any couple who's getting married! More...

Alberto and Lisa are great! We are so glad that we found them. We interviewed quite a few vendors for our wedding and among all of the vendors, they are the most dedicated ones. They have big passion for photography. They can't stop shooting when they see good spots and don't argue about the time. Some vendors just come and finish their work, and I really don't like those. Alberto and Lisa have real passion and they work very hard to produce high quality photos. They also drove 2 hours to check our venue before the wedding and they found great spots for us. We didn't even know the hotel has those places. On the wedding day, they red very hard and utilized the most of the time to take good photos of us. A few days after the wedding, my parents asked me for the wedding photos since they are leaving for a trip. Alberto and Lisa worked hard and sent me way more than what they usually sent to customers. They always try to work with you and provide a best solution . We also had an engagement session with them. Before the session, they called us to discuss details of the session such as what we want out of it, what is the most important to us, what to bring etc. We wanted to shoot with a horse, and they worked with us for the location, helped us find a stable near a park, working on the park permit and so on. They were very helpful and patient. Afterwards, we ordered a metal print from them and my husband found it a little different from what we thought. What we though a metal print was like a print we saw at our venue. Alberto and Lisa went to search around for that photo and finally found it in a locked room and sent us a detailed email explaining how different this one is from the one we ordered. We really appreciate their attitude to their job. We have no doubt their career is successful because they just work so hard and they are very responsible for their customers. They try to take care of every single detail. We have to recommend them to everyone! More...

We love it!  And they took some photos of us after the sunset on the beach, and they had to use special lighting since it was already dark.  We can't believe how great the background lighting looks like when it comes out!  It's so beautiful and it's like an art piece.  We love it so much!  Our friends also commented that these photos must have come from a skillful and professional photographers because they don't see this high quality photos often.  We also had an engagement session with them.  Before the session, they also called us to discuss details of the session such as what we want out of it, what is the most important to us, what to bring etc. We wanted to shoot with a horse, and they worked with us for the location, helped us find a stable near a park, working on the park permit and so on.  They were very helpful and patient.  Afterwards, we ordered a metal print from them and my husband found it a little different from what we thought.  We thought a metal print was like a print we saw at our venue.  Alberto and Lisa went to search around for that photo and finally found it in a locked room and sent us a detailed email explaining how different this one was from the one we ordered.  We really appreciate their attitude to their job.  We have no doubt their career is successful because they just work so hard and they are very responsible for their customers.  They try to take care of every single detail.  They are also good examples for us a young couples to learn from for our careers.  We have to recommend them to everyone!

Lisa and Alberto were recommended to me by a friend of mine who used them for her very large wedding. I was a little worried at first, because my wedding was very small (total of 12 guests) and had a tiny budget. But Lisa and Alberto were able to work with me to make sure that I could get the coverage and the photos I wanted, within my time and budget limits. They were incredibly responsive leading up to the big day, and did location scouting before the wedding so they'd know the best places to shoot. They even recommended a location change, which made things harder for them, but honored the original price they gave me.

On the day, they were very prompt, professional, and just delightful in general. By the end of the posed photos we felt like we had been friends with them forever.

The best part is, the photos were absolutely gorgeous! They sent us a "sneak peek" gallery a few days after the wedding, and I was thrilled with the pics. The full set was sent just three weeks later, and I can't believe how well they turned out. Some of them look like movie stills!

I'm so happy that my husband and I hired Lisa and Alberto. My advice to other couples - don't scrimp on the photographers! The pictures will last a lifetime, and beyond - gorgeous photos are worth every penny and more!

A wonderful team to work with leading up to & on our wedding day! Lisa & Alberto were very attentive and wanted to get all our info/preferences/ideas way ahead of time so they could plan out the day & make sure everything was on schedule.
Totally made MY day a lot easier than I thought because they are so organized & well versed in which shots to get, when the best light was happening, and who we really wanted to capture on our special day. We will most definitely recommend
them to all of our friends getting married because we know they will be in GREAT hands with Lisa & Alberto! Looking forward to booking them for our future baby/kid pictures! Cheers!

First I want to start off by saying that never did my wife and I expect to meet such a passionate, creative and artistic pair of photographers...They are down right the perfect blend of friendliness and professionalism.  They have a very keen eye for taking romantic and unexpected shots.  I'm not the photogenic type but the photos they captured of me and my wife were breathtaking.  The amount of patience and passion that they have for their wonderful works of art far exceeded our expectations.  Proving to us that they are not afraid to go the extra mile looking at every little detail imaginable to give you on camera, that perfect moment.  If you took the time to read this review and for some reason have any doubt about these amazing people- toss that doubt and hire them.  You will be so happy that you did.

We hired Alberto and Lisa to take our engagement photos, as well as our wedding photos, and they did excellent work. These two are real professionals. They were even able to retouch the face of one of our family members who had minor skin cancer surgery on his face right before our wedding - and you would never know it. Now we have many photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We definitely recommend Alberto and Lisa. More...

Lisa and Alberto did amazing work for our wedding and we would highly recommend them to anyone who wants organized, hard-working, and talented photographers who produce a plethora of pictures in a a variety of styles.

The day started bright and early. Lisa and Alberto showed up bright-eyed and bushy tailed and started clicking pictures right away. Of course, the schedule got thrown off but luckily, we had listened to Lisa and Alberto when planning our timeline, and they were completely right. (When they say it takes twice as long as you think it should, they are totally on point!) They rolled with it and made sure they spent time with the guys and the girls to get tons of both candids and set pictures pre-wedding.

Lisa and Alberto's direction and ability to work with everyone was probably the best aspect of the day. They worked well with just the two of us to create imitate and loving photos, they worked with the bridal party to capture all of our personalities, and they even worked well with our families (no small feat!) They are firm with everyone to get the shots you want, but also flexible and funny to keep people happy.

In addition, Lisa and Alberto were not at all intrusive during the wedding ceremony, a fact we and our guests appreciated. Despite the fact we rarely saw them, they produced and incredible number of pictures that captured the emotional moments. It was the same for the reception. Getting candid shots is very difficult and we were amazed at the number of fantastic shots they took that were just part of the night and were not posed.

The number of pictures we were provided with was a bit overwhelming! The thing we liked about them, and what others have said as well, is that they the don't seem like the "typical" wedding shots.

We feel very lucky we hired Lisa and Alberto for our wedding. The pictures they took completely captured our day and every time we look at them, we cry!

Despite the fact we rarely saw them, they produced and incredible number of pictures that captured the emotional moments. It was the same for the reception. Getting candid shots is very difficult and we were amazed at the number of fantastic shots they took that were just part of the night and were not posed. Also, Lisa and Alberto were willing to walk around with us and make sure that we got all those "group shots" everyone wants. Anything we asked for, they did!  The number of pictures we were provided with was a bit overwhelming!  The thing we liked about them, and what others have said as well, is that they the don't seem like the "typical" wedding shots. They are very artistic and have a vibe about them that is hard to accurately describe. Thankfully, Lisa was incredibly helpful in choosing pictures for our final album. She was communicative and easy to work with, despite the fact we made her redo the album six times!  We feel very lucky we hired Lisa and Alberto for our wedding. The pictures they took completely captured our day and every time we look at them, we know that we have the best pictures because we cry every time we look at them!  And that is Lisa and Alberto's goal - to ensure they record your most important day with the utmost professionalism and do their best to make sure you are thrilled with your pictures.

The best thing about working with Peardon Carrillo is that you get not one but 2 photographers for your event; and 2 very dedicated, passionate professionals at that! From the day I contacted them to the wedding day and beyond, Lisa and Alberto were nothing but two of the easiest people to work with. Weddings can get stressful, but my experience with them was very stress free.

We exchanged emails, had multiple phone calls (they wanted to know your vision of the wedding, to check in etc). To make sure they understand what we like as a couple, they asked us to create a Pinterest board for us to pin pics to - shots of wedding photography we love and would like to recreate.

When the day came, nothing was a surprise. With our small 20 people wedding on the beach, we had Lisa and Alberto for more than 4 hours. They worked relentlessly, taking so many pictures (better to have more than less!), I was thrilled and exhausted at the same time. It was exhausting in the best way though- the photos came out beautifully. Some of our best pictures were taken towards the end- with the Santa Monica sunset as the backdrop. At this point, i was ready to get into the reception area and started eating, but I'm SO glad they made us stay a little longer to take these photos!

A week later, they sent over a couple dozen images (they picked the best ones i feel) in case we wanted to share them with people and on social media. The rest of the photos was delivered a couple of months after the wedding. They were very accommodating with any edits and some Photoshopping we needed done. The day of our beach wedding, the beach was packed. They were able to photoshop out a lot of these people, colorful tents from the backdrop, as if the ceremony was held in a secluded private beach. Their work is a reflection of this kind of attention to detail and perfectionism. If you've been to their website, you can clearly see the quality of their work.

Great experience all around and even more awesome pictures!The best thing about working with Peardon Carrillo is that you get not one but 2 photographers for your event; and 2 very dedicated, passionate professionals at that! From the day I contacted them to the wedding day and beyond, Lisa and Alberto were nothing but two of the easiest people to work with. Weddings can get stressful, but my experience with them was very stress free (thank goodness it was, as we had only 2 months to plan this wedding!) We exchanged emails, had multiple phone calls (to talk about our vision of the wedding, to check in with us etc). To make sure they understand what we like as a couple, and how we are (a little bit romantic, a lot of goofy and funny, tons of love) they asked us to create a Pinterest board for us to pin pics to - shots of wedding photography we love and would like to recreate.When the day came, nothing was a surprise (trust me, you don't want "surprises" in the same sentence as "wedding"). With our small 20-people wedding on the beach, we had Lisa and Alberto for more than 4 hours. For bigger weddings and venues, they allocate more time, of course. They worked relentlessly, taking so many pictures (better to have more than less!), I was thrilled and exhausted at the same time. It was exhausting in the best way though- the photos came out beautifully. Some of our best pictures were taken towards the end - with the Santa Monica sunset as the backdrop. At the time, at that point in time, I was ready to get into the reception area and start eating, but I'm SO glad they made us stay a little longer to take these photos! Apparently we took the best pics when we were unraveled, tired and hungry :) A week later, they sent over a couple dozen images (they picked the best ones i feel) in case we wanted to share them with people and on social media. The rest of the photos was delivered a couple of months after the wedding, not too long. They were very accommodating with any edits and some Photoshopping we needed done. For example, the day of our wedding, the beach was packed. They were able to photoshop out a lot of these people, colorful tents from the backdrop, as if the ceremony was held in a secluded private beach. Their work is a reflection of this kind of attention to detail and perfectionism. If you've been to their website and seen their portfolio, you can clearly see the quality of their work. We can't say enough how great Lisa and Alberto were, and we're hoping to rely on them again to celebrate life's other milestones. More...

My husband and I couldn't have been more happy with Alberto and Lisa. They were not only interested in making our wedding day perfect, but they put in so much care and so much time on our engagement shoot and everything leading up to our big day. With Alberto being a veteran, he helped us so much with our military budget and planning. The two of them are professional and take the time to make your dreams come true with their vision. Thank you both for the memories that will last us for a lifetime and our entire family! Alexander and Samantha Polivy More...

Alberto and Lisa were AMAZING, although I knew when we chose them as our wedding photographers they would be! 

They were the first photographers that we met in person, and not only did the work they showed us blew us away, 


but their personality and professionalism was also out of the park!  They did our engagement photos and we were 

absolutely 100% sure we made the right decision and made us excited about our wedding photos! When we saw our 

wedding photos we were speechless! We couldn't be any happier with their work! Not only did they capture every 

special moment, but they made sure that the ones closest to us were in many of the photos! They definitely have 

passion for what they do, and I recommend anyone who has a special occasion to book them!

Lisa and Alberto were amazing!!! My fiancé and I got married this past May at an equestrian center. Lisa and Alberto were so creative both on site and in post production. They visited the site before the wedding so they could have ideas of where they would be shooting and which locations would offer the best shot. Also, they were able to seamlessly create tasteful photos that incorporated our theme. They were very personable and easy to work with. My family has very "unique" dynamics and they made everyone feel comfortable and included. We would HIGHLY recommend them!!! More...

My husband and I were married August 2013 and began scrambling to find all our vendors just months before the wedding. Photographers were very important to us so we spent extra time and attention to this vendor. I came across Peardon & Carillo on a list of Top 10 wedding photographers in Los Angeles and immediately loved them. I compared the work I saw on line to what's considered "top of the line" and very pricey photographers and was pleasantly surprised to find that P&C's work was better and more affordable.

Once we met them in person, we were reassured that they would be our wedding photographers. They have such a flare for the art and eye for design that each photo we saw from our engagement shoot and wedding really made us smile from ear to ear. I cannot describe the reaction we got from family and friends after they saw our photos, but it was more like surprise and astonishment at how amazing the pictures were.

The best part of P&C is that you really get two eyes and two visions for the price of one. Alberto brings such an amazing direction to the photos and Lisa definitely has her own touch which I appreciate as a woman. They are such a great combination together and bring such force to every shot.

They are very professional and easy to work with. Very straight forward and no BS. It was especially hard on the day of the wedding when emotions and stress levels are high, but P&C kept their focus and remained calm which helped us remain calm (we had a very large and rowdy bridal party which didn't help matters).

I have nothing but positive things to say about this pair and really believe that the work they do is superb and affordable. Don't skip out on the engagement shoot! It really was worth it and so much fun to be a little more explorative. P&C were game for anything and really let the natural and sexy side of us come out in the photos.

Lisa and Alberto were terrific! My husband and I hired them for our wedding and we couldn't be happier. They were a great team and perfectly balance each other out with their personalities. They kept us calm during stressful times on the wedding day, met with us multiple times before hand to go through a timeline and see what we want and what our style was. Lisa even went on my pinterest and printed out a list of the poses that I liked and made sure that we shot them on that very stressful day!! Now that we have our pictures, we love them, I want to frame all of them I just can't decide. I highly recommend them!!! More...

I've known Lisa and Alberto for 5 or 6 years- I met them when I modeled for a class at an independent photography school. I was very impressed with the photos I got from them and stayed in touch with them over the years. When they went into wedding photography, I knew that they would be the ones I would hire to capture my day. Not only do they provide unmatched quality, but they have a very unique eye and vision for capturing every detail and moment. My photos are artistic and beautiful! I can't even describe how gifted they are with seeing and utilizing things in your surroundings and using them to create gorgeous photos.

They make themselves available whenever you need and offer experience and knowledge to assist you in planning your wedding. They can even help you with writing up a timeline for the day-of, which I cannot stress how important that is. They also have great people skills and can handle even the most challenging family members when getting group photos together. They have also gathered many vendor contacts that will give you a discount when you mention Peardon-Carrillo photography.

I could go on and on about Lisa and Alberto! They're the best! If you hire them, you will be pleasantly surprised with how wonderful they are and how amazing your photos turn out.

My husband and I worked with Lisa and Alberto at Peardon Carrillo Photography for our engagement photos and our wedding, we I have to say we are both very happy with the results. We chose them because we were initially impressed with their energy, professional attitude and the work we saw in their portfolios. The most impressive thing about working with Lisa and Alberto is the level of commitment and energy they bring to each photo shoot. Our engagement photo session lasted for about 5 hours and took us all over downtown LA. At the start of the session Lisa and Alberto joked about how they out lasted the last couple they worked with, and boy they were not joking. By the end of the session my wife and I were dead tired, but Lisa and Alberto still had energy and were willing to keep going if we wanted to. Lisa and Alberto also brought this same energy and commitment to our wedding and worked their butts off for over six hours. It was truly impressive how many photos they took and how awesome they turned out. Lisa and Alberto managed to get some amazing pictures of us, our family, and our friends at our wedding. When it came to making the album, it was hard picking only a few out of the loads of great pictures they provided us. Since we were not able to get all our favorite photos in our album we now have a whole shelf at home dedicated to our wedding photos. I cannot recommend Lisa and Alberto enough. You should hire these two for your wedding photographers, you will not be disappointed. More...

Lisa and Alberto are an amazing team! They did our engagement and wedding Pictures earlier this year, and they were a pleasure to work with. They were prompt, responsive, and had great ideas. They took time to get to know me and my husband, and captured moments during our wedding that were important to us.

They do a great job not only with portraits and formal pictures, but also captured great candid moments. They were helpful in planning the time course of the wedding as well, and we were able to build our schedule in a way that felt relaxed. They really listened to what we wanted and didn't want in our pictures, and made the whole experience amazingly stress free.

I don't need to say too much about their skills as photographers. One look at their website and you can tell they are both amazingly talented. I was blown away by how amazing everyone looked in the pictures, and how they caught all the aspects of our multi-cultural wedding. They also take a great deal of pride in their work,, and spent a significant amount of time both during the event and after making sure everything is perfect.

I couldn't be happier with them, and would recommend them to anyone who wants excellent wedding photography from a couple of people who are super easy to work with.

We had the opportunity to work with Lisa Peardon and Alberto Carrillo twice now – for our engagement shoot and our wedding. We were extremely impressed with them on both occasions. They are very talented, fun, organized, and helped us make our wedding a success. They captured our special day and we will be forever grateful. They really know how to tell a story with the camera – capturing light, depth, angles, shapes, and colors that we did not see ourselves.
We were particularly grateful for their guidance on the timeline of our wedding day. The photos are stunning, and we will enjoy them forever. We did not realize how much effort went into both the engagement shoot, the wedding, and the editing and selection of the photos for our wedding album.
Lisa and Alberto put their heart and soul into everything they did for us, and you can see it in the work product. Our pictures are beautiful and we have made new friends.
We feel very lucky to have been referred to Peardon Carrillo and would recommend them in a second to anyone.

Peardon Carrillo photography was the best choice we made! We had a wonderful engagement photo session that captured lots of true emotions along with beautiful scenery! We shot for about four hours and the entire time was used at its greatest! The photographers Alberto and Lisa have a great eye for what will look great on camera and that was great about the experience! We loved how just by walking through Topanga State Park they were both inspired and had so many ideas for shots! They just gave us direction and we followed! They were so patient and sometimes told us, "it might feels weird sometimes, but it's going to look great!" Sure enough those were some of our favorite shots! More...

My husband is passionate about photography, so we knew that we had to find the best photography team for our wedding. We initially heard about Lisa and Alberto of Peardon Carrillo Photography through our venue. When you meet Alberto and Lisa, it is easy to see why their work is so good. It is clear that they LOVE what they do, and that they want to take amazing pictures both for themselves as well as for their brides and grooms. A lot of people don't think about the fact that they will be spending pretty much their whole wedding day with the photographers and that therefore picking someone you like and "gel" with is super important. Lisa and Alberto's work speaks for itself, so our meetings were really valuable in making me feel comfortable with them and in helping me imagine how much fun working with them on the day-of would be.

Lisa and Alberto were extremely giving with their time and expertise. My husband wanted to take special photos at a location that wasn't exactly close by to our venue or the getting ready locations. They totally jumped on board with the idea, and even recommended a location that they had shot at before. It rained heavily the days leading up to the wedding, which threatened our photography plans. Lisa and Alberto were ready with some backup ideas, yet were willing to be spontaneous in case the weather worked in our favor so that we could have the pictures in the location we wanted. (Fortunately the weather was gorgeous on the day of).

On our wedding day, Lisa and Alberto were such troopers! They smiled, and made my family and friends feel at ease. They really know how to direct a shoot and how to gently instruct people so that they can look their best. My husband, who is not only an amateur photographer himself but also very critical, was raving about them all night.

We can't wait to see the pictures, as we know they will be amazing. Thank you, Lisa and Alberto!

Lisa and Alberto are amazing photographers!! We love all the pictures we received and everyone who has seen the images wanted to know who our photographers were. Everyone agreed that it was some of the best photos they have ever seen. I dont even know where to begin when it comes to how wonderful they are. They listened to what we wanted and delivered. We also gave them creative freedom and took all their suggestions. The end result is a portfolio of pictures that captures so many different significant moments, expressions and feelings falling in the categories of artistic, romantic, fun, etc. We have a wonderful collage and timeline of our wedding now.

They were extremely professional and fun to work with. Lisa and ALberto are such a great team that compliments each other. We are soo glad we had two photographers, each taking photos from a different perspective but still within the same style. They are soo hard working, always trying to make sure we get the perfect shots. It is obvious they love what they do. They even visited our wedding site prior to the wedding day so that they can plan out the best spots for pictures and make the best use of our time. I reccommend doing the engagement photos with them too!! It was great practice for the wedding and of course you get more amazing pictures. My husband and I are really hard people to please because we tend to nitpick over small details but we cant think of a single thing to dislike about Alberto and Lisa! Hire them and you will not regret it!

Unbelievably talented photographers! Alberto and Lisa are the ultimate! They photographed our son and new daughter-in-law's wedding at the Calamigos Equestrian in Burbank on Friday night. They meshed as part of the entire event, never in the way, so unobtrusive, considerate and professional. They worked seamlessly together. Such an eye for a good shot and worked so well together and with everyone in attendance. A true gentleman and a lady. Such great ideas for unique photographs. We felt like we and our event were in such good hands. Can't wait to see the pictures. We can't thank them enough. Highly recommended for your event or any photography need. More...

Writing this review from Italy,Rome. Taking the time from our honeymoon to let other brides know Lisa & Alberto are very talented photographers. They made my husband feel at easy, which was most important since he is kind of camera shy. They gave us direction on how to make our photos come out beautiful! They scouted the ceremony and reception area before to find great backdrops for family photos and our first photos as husband and wife. We had both photographers there with us all night and they didn't miss a thing. Having the two of them was key to get different angles of the excitement. We have been on our honeymoon since we received our copies ( which took about 2 months to get back) and I cannot wait to get home and order some!!! they also offer beautiful photo albums as well!!

From the moment my daughter and I met Lisa and Alberto, we knew we had found the PERFECT photographers for her wedding. We had interviewed several before meeting them, and with Lisa and Alberto's professionalism, expertise, enthusiasm and kindness, we didn't need to look any further.
They are both accessible by email and phone and continually addressed our questions and concerns, in a very prompt manner. Their work ethic and years of experience speak volumes in their photographs. They are both a tremendous resource for wedding planning and can recommend vendors who share similar attributes. We were so thrilled to have found them, and the photographs and Wedding Album are truly magnificent. Every time I look at them, it retells and captures all the beautiful moments of our daughters wedding day.

My goodness, where to begin? I will start by saying that if you are looking for wedding photographers that can make you feel at ease on your big day and who can take pictures that will make you re- live your wedding, choose Alberto and Lisa! Not only were they very responsive in the beginning ( and I mean they responded to my first ever email within 10 minutes), they are also a PLEASURE to work with! I have always heard horror stories about photographers who have been too rough and demanding, who have been rude, but oh my God, Lisa and Alberto are the complete opposite. They made my husband and I feel so at ease in front of the camera, they directed us perfectly, and they even put up with the fact that it took us over 9 months to get back to them about our wedding albums ( due to my pregnancy). We received our wedding album today and WOW! I re lived that whole day! The pictures are truly phenomenal, and they were better than I have ever expected!
These guys will make your wedding day extmely special and will help you cherish those memories through their photos for the rest of your life.

Absolutely a HUMUNGOUS thank you to Alberto and Lisa for making our wedding a fairy tale! We shall definitely contact them many more times for any photos we would like to have taken! They are truly the best of the best!

From their creativity to their professionalism and genuine care to make the bride and groom happy (and families in between), this dynamic duo is who you want behind the lens to make your wedding pictures a dream come true!! Their photos are beautiful and they captured so many emotions throughout our entire day!! It brings you right back to the day every time we look through them!
They are extremely patient, flexible and responsive and will aim to accommodate any request.
I've had the privilege of working with them for over a year. They met with me before my wedding several times and after my wedding several times and I so appreciated that they took time out of their busy schedules to meet with me. They are truly genuine people who set themselves apart from the competition!
Thank you Lisa and Alberto!!

I personally thought that I could do everything on my own for our wedding and I was a hot mess on the actual day off. I spent a lot of time setting up , putting on chair covers, laying out favors and menus, I even had my bridesmaids put together my centerpieces and so on and so forth, that I left myself no time to get ready. I definitely felt like a hot mess and DID NOT feel very pretty. But when I saw the amazing photos I felt like it was all worth it. They will make sure you look good! It's very true what they say, your wedding day will fly by and it may all seem like a blur but our photos will last a lifetime. ( Lisa & Alberto) The day did fly by but my photos captured so much love and emotion, and that's all we will ever remember. Anyways from a very pleased and happy bride, I highly recommend Peardon Carrillo Photography. they are real people with a real passion.

Alberto and Lisa were/are fantastic! From the moment we met them, we knew they were the rare mix of talent, professionalism, and fun! They helped us get comfortable in front of the camera (not an easy feat) and I strongly recommend the engagement shoot prior to the wedding day - it helped us out a lot! And it helped them learn more about us and what kind of pics we wanted on the big day and how to work with us to get the best shots. They scouted out the venue in advance and came up with great ideas for angles and locations, as well as incorporating our ideas and suggestions. They kept us laughing and having a good time the entire day. We've only seen a few peeks at their wedding day pics, but we are thrilled with what we have seen. And of course, we have the engagement shots, too, which we love! I recommend Peardon Carrillo to anyone looking for high quality photographers who listen to you and bring great ideas to the table - and are fun to be around all day!!! Thanks Lisa and Berto!!!

Alberto and Lisa are amazing photographers. I did not want the usual boring "posed" styles of pictures.  We shot in many interesting locations, they truly captured my children's personalities.  When we received the proofs, I kept saying "OMG, OMG, OMG these shots are amazing!"  My children loved their pictures and enjoyed working with Alberto and Lisa.  I live in the San Francisco area and drove to Los Angeles to work with Alberto and Lisa, they are totally professional, fun to work with and I highly recommend them if you want beautiful and original photographs that will last a lifetime!

Alberto and Lisa completely captured our wedding day. Everytime we look at our photos from our engagement and wedding, we feel as if we are reliving the day all over again. The quality of the pictures is amazing, you can not get amazing pictures like these, which were captured by Lisa and Alberto, anywhere else! From the moment we met Alberto and Lisa, we felt completely comfortable with them. We knew that no one else would sufice in being our photographers than Lisa and Alberto. Alberto and Lisa were there for us always. They were there always for our questions and concerns. They made out engagement shoot amazingly beautiful and fun to do. We had our engagement shoot in Mexico and it was truly a wonderful experience we will never forget. Lisa and Alberto had the best ideas and chose fantastic locations for us to take photos. After a person marries the one they love, all you have is your photographs, and we love them! All this because Alberto and Lisa were our photographers, and that is one decision Juan and I will never regret! More...

These two are EXTREMELY easy to work with and I can't stress that enough. They put you in the position and enviornment to capture the best version of you. Rather than the photos looking like just photos, they are very efficient at truly creating a moment in time that doesn't look posey or artificial. You feel like your with a couple of friends who just happen to be amazing photographers. They make sure to provide you with an easy going vibe while at the same time paying strict attention to the necessary detail required to make your shoot a success. I really couldn't imagine using anyone else.

Breathtaking shots, wonderful people: You just don't get better than Lisa and Berto!!

Top 10 reasons why we love Peardon Carrillo Photography:


10) Super Accommodating: They went out of their way to meet us at our convenience, which is great for a busy working couple. They were mindful of what WE wanted, and made efforts to make it happen
9) Talented!: They got the shots, they told our story in pictures, and they made us look good!
8) Great communicators: open and responsive to emails, calls, even text messages!
7) Great planners: they worked with us on the schedule and venue of our big day, to figure out where they needed to be, and how they could set up the photos
6) Creative! It rained a little in the area when we were getting married--from the photos, you can't tell at all! They somehow improvised and worked around mother nature, and we couldn't be happier. Also, from over 1500 photos, we chose more than they originally recommended for the wedding album. Lisa and Berto didn't let us down: they figured out a way to include all the photos, and we just LOVE the album!
5) Warm, and Down to Earth : Lisa and Berto made us feel at ease, but more than just as professionals with their clients. They are just really nice people, and make it fun and comfortable to work with them. Our guests and other vendors commented on how nice they were as well!
4) Dynamic style of photography: they both come with a solid background in Fashion photography, and know how to compose cool shots, and build a story for the viewer. When we had our engagement photos, they walked us through the whole day--and after that we really knew how to work with them on our wedding day
3) Focused and attentive: Lisa and Berto didn't watch the clock, they never rushed us, and the photos turned out great. We didn't ever feel like we were on a schedule.
2) Experienced: the thing about Lisa and Berto, they've been doing this a while, and they are a great team--efficient and effective. They know *what* they have to do, they figure out the *best* way to do it, and they work with the bride and groom to get it done with the best results. When things don't go as planned, they pick up and figure out another way to get those gorgeous photos.
1) Totally Professional: When Lisa and Berto signed on to shoot our engagement and wedding photos, boy, they delivered! They gave us their best effort, and their work did not disappoint. We love our album, we love the engagement shots, and we're just so glad we got the right people to photograph our wedding.

Oh an extra, FINAL reason: You know they love what they do. And when a person loves what they do, they bring passion, energy, and fun. It makes for a great experience, working with these two awesomely talented photographers. They made sure our shots were cool, creative, and what we wanted. Lisa and Berto, we couldn't recommend you two any more!

Another thing they do, which speaks alot to their work ethic: after we shared our wedding plans, they went to the hotel and wedding venue, to scope out the best locations, to make the most of the big day. That alone set them apart from the other ~15 photographers we interviewed. Kudos!

I got married last August and Lisa and Alberto were a big part of it being the best day of my life. I promise you that they are the best photographers you will find. They have what you want at heart and are completely responsive to your vision while also giving you their creative opinion. It was a great collaboration with them always being open to what I had to say. I still haven't stopped getting compliments on my wedding and engagement photos. I've had people say they want a coffee table book of our photos. Lisa and Alberto will put so much effort into giving you the best photos. They took extra days out of their very busy schedule to scout locations for both the wedding and the engagement session. They ensure that the locations they choose are what you want and are what best represents and compliments you as a couple. I would without a doubt say that they came through the most for me out of all my vendors. I was so happy with my photos and will always cherish them. I highly recommend these two. I promise they will give you the most special and beautiful memories of your magical day. More...

I would highly recommend Peardon and Carillo Photography. From the first meeting until the end, both Lisa and Alberto have been timely, responsive, professional and most importantly they treat each bride and groom differently. My husband and I are more on the shy side and we felt completely comfortable with Lisa and Alberto. There was a strong sense of commitment and they even went to our rehearsal dinner to meet the family and to see who are the most important people. The pictures were spectacular and they captured every moment. More...

All I have to say is WOW. I had the good luck and fortune of having Alberto and Lisa shoot my wedding and engagement photography. I stumbled onto their website while I was planning my wedding, and I immediately loved their photos. Their photography is artistic, romantic and a little edgy. I booked them for my wedding hoping to have pictures as beautiful as the ones they showed me from their portfolio. What they produced far exceeded my expectations. They are true artists and know how to capture the best possible shots and very unique moments. My pictures are fabulous, I honestly did not recognize myself in many of the photos. These are the best pictures that have ever been taken of me in my life. They made my husband and I look amazing, if I do say so myself. I don't know what kind of magic cameras they use, but I kid you not, they will make you look better than you ever imagined. My husband is very camera phobic, and hates to stand to pose for pictures. Lisa and Alberto are very easy going and true professionals, they are very easy to work with and are great at making you feel comfortable. After a few shots, Alberto showed us some of the pics on his camera and we were so amazed. My husband actually warmed up to the camera after seeing the great shots we were getting. I have so many beautiful photos from the wedding and engagement session, now my only problem is deciding which ones to put in the album and display. I have so many beautiful pictures to choose from that it's actually hard to decide...there are too many great photos then I have space on the wall for. I cannot thank them enough for capturing the most important day of my life....and making my husband and I look so good in the process. I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life.
If you are looking for outstanding photographers and amazingly beautiful pictures, then look no more!

Alberto and Lisa were an absolute joy to work with. They helped us come up with creative ideas for photos and made sure our personal style was reflected in the shoot. They were very professional and helped put us at ease right from the very first shot. If you need photos for your engagement or wedding give Peardon Carrillo a call. You'll be glad you did! More...

Our experience with Peardon Carrillo could not have been better, and our photos are incredible. Lisa and Alberto bring a tremendous amount of experience, professionalism and creativity to the sessions, and also the ability to make you feel natural, which allowed our photos to be true artwork that also depict who we really are. Our photos are us, and even more so they are one of a kind. After this experience, Peardon Carrillo will be photographing our family for years to come. More...

Alberto & Lisa from Peardon Carrillo Photography are the MOST amazing and professional wedding photographers you can ask for. They not only love what they do but they make it a point to understand exactly what you want from your pictures. We cannot be happier with both our engagement and our wedding photos. They truly captured my husband and I in so many special moments... as well as the spirit of our wedding. It was a pleasure working with Lisa & Alberto, and we definitely recommend them to everyone. They are OUTSTANDING photographers and the most easy going people you can ever work with. It is extremely difficult to know prior to your special day the ifs ands or buts. With Alberto & Lisa, they are so detailed and talented that the comfort/trust is a given. All a couple can be eager for is the amazing moments they will capture. Thank you Alberto and Lisa! We have moments that we can relive with our kids, grand kids and so forth. :) More...

Alberto and Lisa where amazing. Because it is a husband and wife team, I was happily surprised that they would shoot at the same time in differerent angles, not only did we get shots that were aticipated but we got shots that were candid and very unexpectedly warm and real. Also Lisa and Albertos dynamics put my wife and I at ease by working together and guiding us through the shots becuase they where able to relate to us as a couple because they themselves are a couple.
We highly recommed LISA & ALBERTO! Our photographers and now our friends.

We had an amazing experience with our photographers. They were professional, affable, understanding, open to ideas, and brought very unique ideas of their own to capture our relationship in unique and traditional ways. Their style is incredibly beautiful, artistic and stand-out and yet with sensitivity to communicating almost three dimensionally the love, respect, friendship and admiration we share for one another in our relationship. The colors and the textures captured were magnificent! Everyone that sees our photos say it's almost like they captured our essence in the middle of an interaction, a capsule of our best moments in time that we get to relive and share every day. Simply stellar work! More...

I don't think I could say enough good things about Lisa and Alberto. Quality of Service: Top notch! Out of all the photographers I chatted with, these two stood out among the crowd in so many ways. First, they come from a fashion photography background, so your pictures will have that dynamic quality about them where they all look like they could be found in the pages of a magazine. Their pictures create a story, and evoke emotion, and because of their commercial background, they can find these compositions, and see these stories effortlessly and translate them in their photography. Secondly, they are INCREDIBLY thorough. They will scout out locations for your shoot ahead of time (or your chosen location), so that on the day of the shoot, they already know where to go, and the best times of day to get the best shots so as to make the shoot go smoothly.(To me, this was very impressive -- no other photographer I had spoken to did this) When they are done taking the photos, they will take a few of their favorites and do their photoshop magic on them to suit the style and mood of your pictures. For us, they immediately posted a few online to give us a taste of what was to come! What I find really special about Alberto and Lisa is that they don't restrict themselves to specific package deals. Most photographers I interviewed charged for a specific number of hours of shooting time on your wedding day, and for a specific number of photos, and charged additionally for each retouched photo. Alberto and Lisa will stay throughout your entire wedding day, provide you with all the best pictures, and will retouch any photograph that inspires them. They treat their photography not just as a business, but with care and passion. To give you another example of their passion and commitment - after they compiled our wedding photos, they weren't satisfied with the types of pictures they had taken of the two of us before the ceremony that they offered to do another shoot with us in our wedding garb for free to try and fill in the gaps!! amazing!!
A third reason I believe Lisa and Alberto can create such quality work is that they work together as a team. This allowed them to get the same shots from multiple angles, and allowed one to take pictures while the other set up impromptu lighting. I also think having a male/female team gives them a more well rounded vision. On top of all this they are great communicators. They were able to direct my fiance and I well enough to get some natural, and pleasing poses. They are fun to be around, and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. We had so much fun doing our engagement shoot!
On the topic of responsiveness: Alberto and Lisa were incredible. I went onto their website and left them an email requesting their rates and availability for our wedding day, and I received a call from Alberto within hours. We chatted for over an hour (he's so friendly and funny!) and scheduled a time to meet in person so that we could see more of their work and discuss their contract. We talked numerous times before our engagement shoot, and before the wedding day bouncing ideas off of each other, and discussing what we wanted out of the pictures to make sure we were 100% satisfied. They even called after the pictures were posted to follow up and discuss our thoughts and to make sure we were happy with everything.
Alberto and Lisa are very professional and have their craft down to a science. Our shoots went smoothly and efficiently. I was amazed how easy it was to take pictures with them. They take the guess work out of it for the two of you as non-professional models. They'll suggest good poses, adjust your hair and outfits if needed, and make it fun and easy. These guys even brought us waters, and held my purse while we were taking pictures! :)
Value for Cost: these guys are a STEAL! They will make you look like a million bucks and feel like a celebrity. They go above and beyond the call of duty as photographers. They will treat you like you are their only client, and a good friend at the same time. They even picked up our flowers from the florist the day of the wedding and offered to do anything else they could just to make our day go smoothly!! I was truly touched and blown away. These guys are amazing.
I would recommend Alberto and Lisa a hundred times over to anyone looking for a photographer. Hire them! You won't regret it!

Thank you guys for capturing our personalities, our wedding day, and our friends and family with such skill and beauty. We will treasure your pictures forever!!

Q&A

The secret to great photography is collaboration and connection! Many can create a photograph few know how to create a photograph that has real and deep meaning for their clients!

It all depends on what type of project you would like to accomplish with us, but in general we might start out with how may we help you? Will we be photographing just you, or together with a girlfriend, wife or family? What would you like to do with the photographs after we capture them together? Then we will start to ask you deeper more meaningful questions about yourself, or how you met your significant other, and what is about him or her that you love? We do this so we can find out what is really meaningful to you and how we can combine it in our collaboration to create something more manful for you that really matters!

We love meeting new and old people and getting to know them better so that we can create something meaningful and transformative! We love creating something that did not exist before, and we love people and photography!

My father left me an old Kodak Brownie after he passed away and that gift inspired me to pursue a career in photography!

Our Clients should choose us because they like the photography that we produced, but more importantly that they like that we really care about them as human beings, and deeply desire to create something more meaningful and transformative for all of us!
