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.

Trista was absolutely fantastic! She is professional and talented, but she was also my 'wing chick' - helping with adjusting the bodice of my dress, letting me know when i had lipstick on my teeth and when we ran behind schedule. She was my photographer, bridesmaid and event coordinator all rolled into one. On top of that, she is just a blast to be around. I think her greatest strengths are her ability to help keep things rolling smoothly at the wedding, and her ability to tell a story with her pictures. She really captured the personalities of everyone she photographed. They say pictures are worth a thousand words - and her pictures describe my wedding in ways that hundreds of thousands of words never could.

Our wedding was on August 6th, 2016 and I cannot say enough how wonderful Trista is! she is a talented photographer and did an awesome job with our wedding. I had contacted her about 2 1/2 months before our wedding and she was accommodating and sweet (we had multiple sites for pics) she answered all my questions with patience and had some great suggestions also. She had our pictures ready when promised and they look amazing. If you're looking for a great photographer, then Trista is the one!!! her prices are moderate but you certainly get beautiful pictures :)

Trista was unbelievably wonderful! Not only did she give us the best deal out there, but having her at our wedding made the occasion more joyous and less stressful. She was extremely helpful over and over again, for example, she always brought me water to make sure I would not be dehydrated, and made sure my hair looked fine, etc. Our photos were amazing and beautiful and from all angles and yet her presence was not intrusive. We really believe Trista was born to rock the world of wedding photography! Thank you Trista! Daniel and Cynthia

Trista took both our engagement and wedding photos. At the wedding, she was accompanied by a second photographer who assisted her during the getting-ready and the ceremony, then manned the photo booth during the reception. I chose the Peony Package which includes the engagement shoot, wedding day coverage, a photo booth, all images on DVD/USB, and a photo album. I did, however, adjust the package slightly by swapping out the photo album for the second photographer.

Quality: Trista is friendly, warm, and was able to offer advice to us to get the best photos once we'd run out of ideas for "candid" shots. The vast majority of the (literally) thousands of photos she took during our engagement session and wedding reflect us and our loved ones. They are not strangely overdone, too posed, or obscurely artsy.

Responsiveness: Trista and I communicated on and off via email for the year before the wedding. Sometimes she would instigate communication just by checking in to see if I needed anything and she always got back to me within a day when I had a question or concern.

Professionalism: Top notch. Trista was easy to communicate with, always on time, and always appropriate. The one time she had to reschedule due to illness, she let us know in advance and promptly found us a new date which worked for all. During our ceremony and reception, she worked so quietly and efficiently that I didn't even take notice of her...except when she popped up exactly when I needed something. She did more than just take photos and she seemed to be pleased to offer her services as part of the day-of support crew.

Value: The value of Trista's packages is the reason I settled on her. After researching numerous local photographers, I went back to Altar Image because the costs were so low for the quality of the photos in Trista's online portfolios.

Flexibility: Well, she flew to Catalina in a small airplane to take our engagement photos, so she's up for almost anything!

Look at her website and her photos and you will fall in love. We had an interview with her before we met with her and we asked her some questions and the moment we met her she was amazing and she was the first photographer we ever interviewed and instantly knew she was the one! She had a vibrant personality from the moment we met with her to the moment during our wedding and even after. There was never a dull moment with her, she made me, my husband and family and friends smile throughout the day and made the wedding day that much better. She was a trooper, during the wedding she went above and beyond to capture the moment by jumping through bushes to get the right shot. Even during the wedding she hurt her ankle and kept on shooting photos while hurt. If you book her you will not regret it. She was very responsive throughout the whole process and we truly recommend her.

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 was very professional and easy to work with from start to finish. She was very responsive to emails and any questions I had. She provided all of our photos on DVDs just a few weeks after our event, and they turned out great! I was very happy with her work and would not hesitate to recommend her!

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!
