At Altar Image Photography we do our best to capture every single amazing moment on your special day. Each image should tell a story and at Altar Image that's just what we try to do.

We’ll give your wedding full coverage from engagement photos, to the day of the wedding.... getting pretty and dressed, walking down the aisle and ceremony, portraits, reception and even trashing of the dress.

We offer a photo booth to keep your guests entertained at your reception, coffee table size photo books, mini photo books for parents, prints on canvas, a dvd of images, online viewing and more.

I know how difficult and expensive planning a wedding can be, and we want to make your big day as beautiful and stress free as possible.

Contact me with any questions you may have and to set up a consultation, 626.429.6555 or altarimagephoto@gmail.com Read less

Trista was the photographer for our Aug. 29th wedding. She was great on the wedding day & does a great job fitting into the crowd and capturing real moments. She is a super trooper too as she really went with the flow of the night as we spent a bit of time walking around the Riviera Village, in RB and stopping in several places for drinks before we got to our reception.
My only hiccup was a lack of communication prior to the wedding, where my husband and I felt unsure if she was still able to shoot our wedding. This may be 'normal' but I would have greatly benefited from a short check in once a month, just saying she was still on board. So just know, she is great!

Trista is wonderful! I cannot say enough good things about her. I call her my 5th bridesmaid and it was true. She always took care of me where most photographers could care less about the client. I first met Trista at my best friend's wedding back in March of 2013 where I fell in love with her. She did a wonderful job for an amazing price. So when I got engaged it was a no brainer that I would want her to do my wedding. For the price you are getting a steal! I got the package that included an engagement shoot, all day wedding coverage, a wedding photo book, and a photo booth for my wedding. Everyone loved the photo booth! The pictures that were printed out were adorable. She lets you keep the rights to all the photos and delivers they in a timely manner (I got married 7/12/2014 and should be receiving the photos today or tomorrow). I have already recommended her to everyone that asks for a photographer. Trista will be there for you all day with no complaints. She is truly a friend to me now.

Altar Image Photography by Trista is a gem in the LA area. Jason and I are so pleased with our experience for many reasons:

1.) You will not get the quality of service for the fair price packages she provides.
2.) Trista is extremely responsive and guarantees that you are happy with the style of the photos.
3.) Trista is flexible. I changed the wedding date and forgot to tell her! Obviously, this would have been a HUGE issue but she was extremely patient with me and found a way to make the date work. (I wouldn’t suggest changing the date without telling her but this demonstrates her flexibility)
4.) Trista is a very hard worker- She travelled to 3 locations on wedding day to ensure she captured all the moments. She worked all day and all night behind the scenes and took thousands of photos without me or our guests realizing it. At one point, I told her she didn’t have to stay any longer and she did any way. We had our formal photos and photos that made me re live that day upon seeing them.
5.) I knew Trista was extremely experienced not only when I reviewed her work but also on wedding day when I noticed she was prepared for any wedding day challenge- change of clothes in anticipation of weather change, emergency kit for the bride and ladies, directions ready to go, phone numbers on hand etc.

It was a pleasure working with her!

Trista did a great job capturing us as a couple during our engagement session and during the wedding. She also provided us with countless photos of our wedding and reception that captured the true vibe of the party- some posed, most candid. We have so many amazing pictures of friends and family that we missed during the reception because of our "bride and groom duties." We would absolutely recommend Trista to any of our friends. Hopefully she'll consider doing newborn photos at some point... :)

Altar Image Photography services have definitely delivered beyond expectations. Our wedding photos are beautiful. Trista was able to capture the tender moments that were not posed or prepared for. The photos are beautiful, bright and elegant- never overdone. To top things off, the photographer is professional and highly personable. If you are looking for specific shots, she will attain them. I am a very happy customer! :)

Trista from Altar Image was my wedding photographer. I am a photography fiend and outcome of our wedding pictures was one of the things I obsessed about. I met Trista, we spoke about what I had envisioned for our pics. She asked me to forward a portfolio of images that would be inspiration for our pictures, In addition, Trista met with me at the venue a few days before the event and we did our final planning. On the day of the wedding she arrived when we had stated. We had planned to shoot at a state park five minutes away but everything didn't go strictly according to plan (girls make-up session run longer than time budgeted..remember that ladies ;-) ). Trista was flexible and came up with the idea that we could shoot at the venue, overlooking San Fernando Valley. Let me say, our pics are breath-taking. Two weeks after our wedding, Trista hunted me down and got all our wedding DVD (really high quality) to us. My husband and I really enjoyed working with her, and best of all many wedding guests complimented how attentive and on the ball Trista was all day. I would highly recommend Altar Image; Trista did a fantastic job!

We love Trista and Cadence! Since Trista was already booked for another wedding on our wedding date, Cadence did our wedding and she was a complete and utter rock star. She got along great with everyone at the event, took photos like a ninja (I'd forget she was there half the time, and we have some truly amazing candids), and was completely amazing to work with. We got DVDs containing pretty much every photo that she took at our wedding, which was awesome, because it really let us go through, pick out, and edit the ones we like best to put into our album. I would absolutely recommend Trista and Cadence to anyone looking to get great wedding photos on a budget!

We loved Trista! She was very easy to work with, and just plain fun to hang out with. Quality: I love the photos that she took. There were some shots that I would have liked to have that she missed, but that was probably more my fault to not giving her a list of my "must have shots" like many websites say you should give your photographer. Responsiveness: Trista and I emailed back and forth for several months before the wedding. She always replied to my emails within 24 hours. Professionalism: Trista was very professional, she knew how to blend in at the ceremony and not be obtrusive. Most of the time we forgot she was there! Value: We got the basic package, which did not include any photo editing. I'm totally ok with that because I can work photoshop pretty well and I didn't have the budget for any other package. Looking back, I think that it's better this way because I can choose the photos that I like best and edit them rather than having someone else choose the photos that they like best. Flexibility: Trista really excelled here. Our wedding was in Las Vegas and Trista drove all the way out from California! Even with her travel expenses she was cheaper and better quality than anyone I could have gotten in the same price range in Vegas. Our wedding day was very hectic since we didn't really have a plan and she went with the flow with ease. She was calm and patient when we were getting ready and messing around on the computer trying to get the ceremony music sorted out. She quietly worked by the window photographing my bouquets, clothes, cake toppers, etc. She showed up on time at my hotel room at noon and stayed with us the whole day until the reception ended around 11pm. We couldn't even loose her at the casino/construction/maze to the chapel! My biggest regret is that we didn't have time to go do some portrait shots with her before or after the wedding. Maybe we can meet her in Cali for a one year anniversary shoot. I would highly recommend Trista to anyone!

Trista sent me 5 unedited CD's of over 1000 images, way too many to deal with. I started editing the photos myself. If I had no photo editing skills, I would be totally shattered.
Had she just sent me 100 well edited photos, I would have had material for an album or some enlargements. However, my family and I feel like we A) threw away money B) lost the opportunity to record beautiful moments forever. Trista did not reflect upon the impact of her actions.

Altar Image Photography by Trista responded with the following comments:

I thought that I made myself completely clear when I was hired that they would be getting all the images that I shot and that the would be unedited, they purchased my basic package with the addition of me shooting the rehearsal dinner the night before.
I never received a single call or email that they were expecting anything different or that they were displeased.

After a frustrating search for an affordable wedding photographer, we were delighted to have found Trista at Altar Image Photography. We liked the option of receiving our wedding photographs on CDs that we could sort through and edit on our own. It saved money and gave us complete control. Of course, for those who prefer the whole package, she can provide the "turn key" service of delivering a complete album also.

Wedding planning can be time consuming...there are a lot of things to accomplish in a short time. That made us appreciate Trista's responsiveness and punctuality all the more. It's reassuring to have a vendor who does what she says she'll do. She was quick to return phone calls or emails. She was a pleasure to work with on the big day too. She was in the background during the ceremony and, appropriately, in the thick of things during the reception. She fit in so nicely, it was almost like having a close friend who was attending your wedding offering to take your photos! The guests loved her and commented so later.

She delivered our beautiful photographs on CDs at the time promised and we were blown away by the quality and creativity. For example, she captured some wonderful photos of our rings by using stunning flowers as a background. We also appreciate that she used a variety of filters for each complete set so we could just select the look we liked for each photo.

We can sincerely and wholeheartedly recommend Trista for your big day!

Trista shot my engagement photos, boudior shots for a wedding gift for my husband as well as my wedding. She was always on time, always professional and captured the love and definite personality of everyone at each of the events and more than anything the love between my husband and I and the happiness that we shared on our wedding day. She made us feel comfortable and had our photos to us on time and we couldn't be happier with the results. I couldn't imagine another photographer being able to capture what trista captured. Their were so many stressful moments about planning our wedding and the actual wedding day but Altar Image Photography was certainly not one of them, I would and do recommend Trista to everyone that I can.
