My wife and I were introduced to Adrienne through a mutual friend when he heard we were looking for a wedding photographer. She came very highly recommended and upon viewing her work online, we instantly fell in love with the bright and vibrant style of her photography!

Adrienne is very easy to work with and we had no problems scheduling our engagement shoot despite our small window of availability in LA (we live in Texas). She responded quickly to our questions, addressed all our concerns, and left a great first impression during our video chat interview. We even exchanged ideas on how to prepare for the shoot, so we had a much better idea on things we needed to bring and what would work at her studio, which she very graciously offered to let us use. The shoot ended up being a lot of fun as she really put us both at ease and had us laughing and smiling for many of the photos.

Our experience with Adrienne at our wedding was no different. She was punctual, organized and professional as always on our big day. These may sound like a very basic expectations, but having a photographer that adds zero stress means a lot with so many other things to worry about. Adrienne took care of the list of family group shots we'd provided prior to the wedding, while her second shooter Angel always seemed to know where to be to capture special moments throughout the day. We trusted Adrienne completely, and did not feel any need to make specific requests.

There are so many reasons why she is amazingly awesome, but the best ones are her skills are a photography, her professionalism, and how wonderful she is to work with. We love how our engagement and wedding photos came out, and feel very lucky to have had Adrienne photograph our wedding!

My wife and I learned about Adrienne's work through a referral. We have seen the job she has done through their albums and were very impressed. She is very professional and responsive when we first contacted her. When we had a face to face meeting with Adrienne, she showed us her portfolio and were even more impressed by her work. Adrienne answered all the questions we had and we walked out of that meeting feeling very confident that she was the right person for the job. Besides talking business on that day, Adrienne also showed her awesome personality which makes it that much easier working with a vendor.
We live in the Bay Area so these types of meetings arent easy for us to book if we ever need anything from Adrienne. As I mentioned, she is a true professional and is easily accessible via phone or email and answers all questions with a quick turnaround time. Adrienne is very accomodating and will work out the details with you to your liking. Her pricing is also very fair. What more do you want from a photographer? There might be an element of the unknown regarding other vendors for our big day, but with Adrienne as our photographer, that's one less "worry" off our list. If friends and colleagues are ever looking for a photographer, we are definitely handing over her contact information.

My husband and I were actually about to sign a contract with another photographer when Adrienne got back to us for a initial meeting. We decided to hold off meet with her instead. Adrienne was the 5th photographer we met with, and as soon as we met her, we decided she was the one and booked her instantly. From our experiences with all the other photographer we met with, we realized that a photographer who can take amazing photos is almost a dime a dozen. You need to dig a little deeper then just a good photo. We were looking for a style that was more bright and fun compared to a more glamorous type of photography. We wanted a photographer that would be able to capture the energy and emotion of our special day. And most importantly, we wanted our photography to be a reflection of who we are as a couple. Based on those criteria, any of the five photographers we interviewed could have delivered. So what makes Adrienne so special? When we met with Adrienne, there was a connection, a spark, like falling in love. A feeling like we were good friends who have not seen each other in a long time. When we met her, we realized just how important that connection was. The photographer you pick is someone who you're going spend the most important day of your life with. Other vendors, they come, do their thing, then leave. So you need to make sure that you enjoy your photographer's company enough to have them around all day and someone you feel comfortable enough to be yourself. I believe that if you are comfortable with the photographer, then they can bring out your natural expressions instead of having to force a fake smile. Adrienne has a personality that is very easy to get along with and she is extremely easy to work with. Our engagement pictures and the wedding itself was very fun and stress free thanks to her. We highly recommend Adrienne not only for her amazing work, but her sweet personality.

We first met Adrienne when she did our engagement photos during a session in Downtown LA and Santa Monica Beach. She is AMAZING and captures those little moments when you don't even notice she's taking pictures. She is also really friendly and great at making you feel super comfortable with her. Since it was our first real photo shoot we were a little awkward at first, but within ten minutes we had evolved into professional models!! We were so impressed with Adrienne's work that we hired her for our wedding too. We have already seen previews and can't wait to see the rest. If you are looking for editorial style work with a soft, intimate, and human feel, she is the photographer for you. I've never seen anyone evoke such emotion through pictures, and am thrilled with her work from our engagement session and wedding.

Adrienne was wonderful from beginning to end. Our pictures are so beautiful and we have received so many comments from our friends and family. Adrienne is young, has great energy and a great eye.
Both my husband and I felt instantly comfortable with her when we met her and even more so when we did our engagement photos. She is reasonably priced and you get a great value for the pictures in return. We didn't have to wait too long to get our proofs and we couldn't be happier. She's definitely someone we will keep in touch with for photos in the future.
She's great!

Photography was top priority for me and I wanted to make sure we had the best photographer to capture our day. Adrienne is incredibly sweet and she made me feel so comfortable when we first met, like we were just old friends catching up. She wanted to get to know us and really listened as I described what I was looking for. I could tell that she really cared and how much she loved her work. Coming out of that meeting, I had no doubts that Adrienne would be the perfect photographer for us.
Adrienne was always so friendly, helpful and responsive. I knew what type of feel/backdrop we wanted for our engagement photos but I didn’t know the exact location. Adrienne remembered what we discussed during our first meeting and recommended a few places that fit what we were looking for. We were a little nervous before the session but Adrienne instantly made us feel so comfortable. She picked out the perfect spots with pretty light to photograph us in and was so sweet in guiding us through the session, making us laugh and feel at ease in front of her camera. It was the same on our wedding day - we completely trusted Adrienne and I felt like I didn’t need to ask her for any type of specific shots. She was already there capturing it all and more!
When we received our photos (both for the engagement and wedding), we were absolutely blown away. Every single photo is amazing. She made everyone and everything look so gorgeous. She captured all the emotions, the details, the natural in-between moments, and especially all the love we felt. Her photos captured our love and wedding perfectly. Even traditional shots, such as family/wedding party portraits that could be plain and boring, turned out so natural and pretty. She has the ability to capture all the emotions in a single photo, while also making everyone and everything look gorgeous - it's amazing! Adrienne was definitely the best decision I made throughout our wedding planning process!

Of all of our wedding vendors, Adrienne Gunde was one of our absolute favorites! She came to us with a glowing recommendation from friends who had worked with her for their wedding the prior year, and she was responsive, professional, and friendly from the very start. We had both our engagement session and our wedding in Northern California, and having her fly up from Southern California for both was not an issue at all. From our initial Skype meeting to our engagement session, she was so easy to get along with and helped us feel at ease in front of the camera. I was the kind of bride who asks a lot of questions, and she was wonderful about always getting back to me in a timely manner. By the time our wedding came around, it was just like having another friend there when she arrived! Though probably what you are most interested in, reader, is that Adrienne has major TALENT!!!! We absolutely loved our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. She captured our day exactly as we wanted to have it captured ~ all of the emotions, details, people ... came out so pretty through the lens of her camera! When one of my friends gets engaged, Adrienne Gunde is the first person I refer to them!

I had seen Adrienne's work via a few of my friend's weddings and always knew when it was my turn that I would hire her. She's super easy to work with, non-invasive, and just the right mix of artsy and classic for me. I love how she gives you all the digital copies of your photographs and puts them in a pretty CD. She is has really quick turnaround which is much appreciated for impatient people like myself :)

We couldn't of been more happy with the beautiful photos Adrienne Gunde provided for us to represent our wedding day. She made our wedding look so wonderfully romantic and beautiful. Our wedding was very nontraditional and intimate. She captured each guest, and ceremony moments so perfectly. We couldn't of been more surprised to see all the gorgeous details, like my bouquet and our sushi cake, look so lively and perfect. The wedding photography was the most important aspect of our wedding. The photography represents the entire wedding day and is a reminder of the beautiful memories captured. When we decided on Adrienne as our photographer, it was the best decision we made. The photos are absolutely beautiful, and when we reminisce about our wedding day, we have beautiful photos to match our memories. It was so important to us that we picked a talented photographer that we adored. Adrienne is someone who you can turn over all your trust and know she will capture the essence of the day, and a make everything look beautiful. Adrienne was the perfect choice for us. We knew we wanted someone who would photograph our personal and unique wedding, while capturing the all details our coordinator had put together. Our photos came our better than we could have ever imagined and we would say that they represent the day so perfectly. We didn't mind doing family portraits, or couple portraits after the ceremony. It was that during our photos that made it real, and we realized, we really did it. We pulled off our dream wedding and we have beautiful photos to show for it. Thank you so much Adrienne for the lovely photos that represent our wedding and love so perfectly.

Adrienne is simply an amazing photographer! From start to finish, she's been a pleasure to work with. Before the wedding, we had lunch with her and explained what we wanted -- photos that highlighted the landscape around our venue, while allowing the bright colors of our wedding to "pop". Her photos did exactly that, exceeding our highest expectations. She (and her wonderful assistant, Scott) managed to do all this, while capturing the mood of the wedding perfectly. The photography never felt at all intrusive. In fact, while they were taking candid shots, we barely noticed that they were there -- and yet, we ended up with tons of fantastic shots. This was especially true during the prep photos, which can sometimes feel uncomfortable (considering everyone's getting dressed), but that wasn't the case with Adrienne.

Since the wedding, we've had many, many friends comment on how gorgeous our photos were. (One, who couldn't attend due to a family wedding the same weekend, remarked that as soon as she saw our photos, she knew she'd made the wrong choice!)

We recommend Adrienne without reservation, and we hope to hire her again anytime we need an event photographer!

Like many others on this website, I can't say enough about Adrienne and her partner, Scott! To give you a bit of history, I had a recommended vendor list from my venue; however, the photographers all blended into one with the same exact shots, poses, etc. I wanted someone with a fresh perspective who takes beautiful, honest, detailed, 'real time' photos. I stumbled upon Adrienne's website and found myself truly enthralled by her gorgeous pictures and the long, glowing recommendations so many of her clients had taken the time to write (and she deserves them!) We went on a 'first date,' after which I continued to meet with other photographers. No one made me feel as confident and safe as Adrienne, safe meaning I was about to share the most magical, intimate moments of my life with a complete stranger, and I needed to feel comfortable :-) The next thing you know, she was shooting my engagement session in Malibu. She brought a big bunch of colored balloons and the pictures blew us away - we ended up using 3 of them in our save-the-date! We received so many compliments from friends & family. Adrienne and Scott shot our wedding about a month ago. Not only were they extremely timely and easy-going on the big day (weddings can get pretty stressful!), but they were completely behind-the-scenes, capturing all of the important moments without invading them. My wedding day felt completely natural, not orchestrated, and I couldn't have asked for anything more. I have only seen a few sneak peeks of the wedding photos, but I already know how they will turn out (AMAZING!!!) I really can't say enough about Adrienne. She is a talented, professional, bright, graceful, kind, person who wants nothing more than to ultimately give you beautiful photos and memories to last a lifetime. I would highly recommend Adrienne to anyone, no matter what the occasion.

I cannot say enough good things about Adrienne. (and Scott)

Our wedding was a project that my husband and I poured EVERYTHING into, so finding a photographer was one of our most paramount priorities. Someone advised us that you can skimp on everything else, but you have to be willing to invest well in two things: your photographer and your DJ.

After much frustrating research on photographers, I serendipitously came across Adrienne's ad on Facebook. Upon first glance at her website, I knew that THIS WAS IT. Meeting with her (at Jerry's Famous Deli -- a foodie, a girl after my own heart!) was easy and carefree, and although we discussed business, she made us feel at ease and by the end of the meeting, we signed with her.

We wanted to do our engagement photos in downtown San Juan Capistrano. Adrienne and Scott were there at our designated meeting spot on time, and even when I haggardly entered 10 minutes late (as I perpetually am), I didn't feel like they were put out. They didn't have that get-em-in-get-em-out attitude. Throughout the shoot, they made us feel comfortable and as if we'd been friends for a long time! Most importantly, the engagement photos turned out beyond what we expected.

Needless to say, our experience with them on the big day itself was phenomenal. Adrienne arrived promptly on time at my house (and Scott arrived at the same time at the hotel where my husband and our groomsmen were) and was not at all daunted by the insanity of 14 women running around my house.

Our pictures are absolutely BEYOND perfect. I've told Adrienne and Scott that they have this amazing gift of not only capturing the moment, but also all the emotion in that moment. They have the talent to capture just that *right* moment where the smiles are natural (never contrived) and warm.

I am proud to have had Adrienne and Scott as our photographers. Now that I am married, I can't wait to have kids so that I can have them photograph my kids too! I am confident in Adrienne . . . and know that I have made a friend in her too.

I cannot say enough good things about Adrienne. (and Scott)

Our wedding was a project that my husband and I poured EVERYTHING into, so finding a photographer was one of our most paramount priorities. Someone advised us that you can skimp on everything else, but you have to be willing to invest well in two things: your photographer and your DJ.

After much frustrating research on photographers, I serendipitously came across Adrienne's ad on Facebook. Upon first glance at her website, I knew that THIS WAS IT. Meeting with her (at Jerry's Famous Deli -- a foodie, a girl after my own heart!) was easy and carefree, and although we discussed business, she made us feel at ease and by the end of the meeting, we signed with her.

My husband and I are so glad we found Adrienne to photograph our wedding! Not only was she and her partner Scott helpful, flexible, friendly, fun, and professional, the pictures she produced let me relive one of the happiest days of my life. Looking at the pictures she took and all the details of our wedding that she captured shows the thoughtfulness Adrienne puts into her work. As my mom said upon seeing the pictures, they look like they could be in a magazine...and I agree! Adrienne's photos made us and our day so special and we are so privileged to work with such a talented photographer. Check out her website/blog and her pictures will speak for themselves. I highly recommend Adrienne's services to anyone looking for a photographer.

From my husband : )
What a fantastic experience it was working with Adrienne. The photos are incredible. She has an eye for capturing details that are such an important part of the wedding day but might have been overlooked by someone who cared less about what she was doing. Adrienne’s professionalism results in wedding photos that are truly top notch. But just as important is how she works. Adrienne blended into our wedding environment and managed to document the substance and the feeling of the event while remaining completely unobtrusive. She was available and responsive, but fully respected our desire to not have a photographer who was asking everyone to strike a pose all day. We could not recommend Adrienne more highly. What a pleasure to work with, what great results.

Adrienne was recommended to us by my fiancee's sister who knew we were looking for a wedding photographer. As soon as I clicked onto her website & blog, I immediately captivated by her style. I booked her as soon as possible.

The first time we actually met was at our engagement shoot at UCI. Both my fiancee and I were incredibly nervous but when we met her and Scott, we were immediately put at ease and the time flew by so quickly. She has a great eye for places to shoot photos, little unexpected nooks that made for the most incredible pictures. She was incredibly patient with us and just made us smile throughout that whole time. It was like we were just hanging out with friends, friends that just so happened to have great cameras and incredible talent. The photos I got back were just amazing and I loved them so much, I think I incorporated them into pretty much everything at my wedding.

She was always responsive to my emails and my suggestions of photos that I wanted for my wedding. The day of the wedding, my whole family fell in love with her and felt super comfortable with her. She and Scott were super stealthy. It was only looking at photos taken by other friends & family that we noticed them sneaking around quietly. We had no idea there were pictures being taken of us. It was great!

The thing that I most commend Adrienne for, though, was how patient she was with all my friends & family. We had a lot of people right up in her face taking pics of us too and she was gentle but firm with them so that she could get the best shots of us. She did it in such a way as no one was offended or even a little mad at all. It really amazed me how patient she was with that.

All in all, Adrienne (and Scott) worked SUPER hard that day and they were so professional. I really am glad I hired them. I just saw some pictures she posted of my wedding on her blog and I LOVE every single one of them. I know that I will love every single one of her photos.

She is highly highly recommended to anyone who wants an amazing wedding photographer!

The first time we met Adrienne, she came in with a portfolio, information sheet, and a smile on her face. What made us decide to have her be our photographer for our wedding was her sincere and genuine character, passion for weddings, and simply her love for photography. Adrienne talked excitedly about the weddings she had shot at, the upcoming weddings she was looking forward to, and just the overall feeling she gets when she documents and photographs these events. Hearing this from her, you would think that it was Adrienne getting married herself and that is definitely what makes her stand out. She treats each wedding like it was her first � enthusiastically, passionately, and never tired of taking shots of the dress, shoes, rings, etc. Because of this attitude and warm personality in sharing bits and pieces of herself, there was no doubt that Adrienne was the perfect photographer for us.

Adrienne�s warm personality was evident in our engagement shoot. Having jitters about taking such intimate shots, she made us feel comfortable and at ease while we were walking during the early morning in Chinatown. She made us laugh, smile, and even talked to us during the session. By the end of the engagement shoot, we didn�t feel like we were having our pictures taken by photographers, but by new friends. Adrienne was also flexible in going to South Pasadena to continue our engagement session and even said, �Do you want to continue taking more pictures?� after spending nearly two hours shooting. That simply amazed us that Adrienne wanted us to be satisfied and would continue the session if needed. We strongly believe that most people would not accommodate nor spend that extra time, but Adrienne offered without hesitancy. This is what makes Adrienne a unique individual to work with; it is not only her personality and warmth when you are around her, but the extra touch she provides by caring about what the couple wants.

When we received the engagement pictures, we were absolutely amazed by them. Adrienne captured our love and friendship in the photos while also incorporating the beauty of Chinatown, Buster�s Caf�, and the little garden in South Pasadena. We could not wait to see her again for the wedding in September.

When we saw Adrienne in September for our wedding, it was the exact same feel as our engagement session: warm, intimate, and fun-filled. Not only was Adrienne enthusiastic about shooting the wedding itself, but also embracing Balboa Park in San Diego and capturing the essence of the place and our wedding day. Again, she made us feel comfortable and also, made our wedding party feel at ease in front of the camera. Adrienne was there for every moment: getting hair and make-up done, putting on the dress, capturing the gossip and chatter amongst bridesmaids, and seeing the bride/groom for the first time, etc. However, what impressed me the most was how well she captured all of those moments; if I didn�t know any better, I would think that Adrienne and Scott were ninjas. What do I mean by this? We didn�t even know they were there most of the time and because of that, they both captured genuine, real emotions from us during the wedding ceremony and reception. When we looked back at the pictures, both of us said, �When did she take this?� Adrienne captured every moment of the ceremony: the laughter during the exchange of our stories, the tears when we said our own vows, and the love that was evident in our families� faces. She did it by stealthily moving about, although I knew she must have been running about since she really did not miss any moment of the both the ceremony and the reception.

Adrienne is an amazing photographer, but in the end, she is an amazing friend that my husband and I now have. I really cannot wait to work with her again; perhaps it will be a mom-to-be session or family �portrait.� Whatever it may be, I recommend her highly to others who want to not only have beautiful photographs, but a person who is easy to work with, flexible, and driven.

We were lucky enough to discover Adrienne two years ago when she was doing this part-time and I cannot say enough great things about Adrienne and her work. Not only was she kind enough to travel to 1. San Diego for our engagement shoot and 2. Santa Barbara for the wedding. She suggested photo ideas, poses, AND helped me keep calm on a day I was completely stressed out. Her photos are real and she made us feel completely at ease. Adrienne is professional, thoughtful, and thorough. She has true talent and the sky is the limit with Adrienne. Grab her for your engagement/wedding/trash-the-dress shoot before she is booked for your date and you will NOT be disappointed. If only all photographers were as wonderful as her. In fact, my best friend/maid of honor already ask Adrienne if she could photograph her wedding and she's not even engaged yet! Thank you Adrienne for everything - you are truly remarkable.
