The Ballesteros did an incredible job. We just received our wedding photos back and absolutely love them. They did a great job capturing everything. The day of they were extremely flexible with timing and were able to rearrange their photography schedule to make sure we got all the pictures we wanted. Not only are they great photographers, but they were professional and quickly responded to emails. We are extremely happy that we used their service. Would highly recommend to others:)

Dan & Kari were an extreme pleasure; they were able to take two people who were not comfortable in front of the camera and they created magical shots. They did both our engagement and the day of photos. I am so happy we chose to work with them as they were prompt with the delivery of the photos as well as a breeze to work with. Their website is set up in such a way that everyone was able to view a slideshow from their own homes; it made it easy for our families that are scattered across the country to enjoy the pictures as well.
Thanks again for everything you two!

I honestly cannot adequately describe the quality and beauty of the photographs that come from Dan and Kari. When I came across their booth at the Central Coast wedding expo I was instantly struck by what I saw and knew I had found our wedding photographers. I agree with the other reviews on here that Dan and Kari make you feel completely relaxed and confident while shooting to the point that it is fun! He also got our shots at the wedding done quickly by being very organized, that way we were able to go back to our wedding and enjoy our guests. Both our engagement and wedding photos came out gorgeous, what Dan is able to do with light and composition is simply amazing. We have gotten wonderful compliments that our photos look like they came straight out of a magazine. We could not be happier with the results!!

Dan photographed our wedding on Nov. 3rd. I cannot say enough great things about him and the process. He really worked with us with our budget and instantly we felt at ease talking with him. He came down from SLO to Santa Barbara a day early to check out the location and even made an amazing video of our rehearsal. Our wedding party and guests kept commenting how unobtrusive he was. Dan was also a really calming force for me when it was getting a bit stressful. He took our pictures so quickly so we could get to our guests and enjoy our reception. He immediately put pictures on Facebook and we had our online gallery within 2 weeks! Most of all, his photographs are amazing! I cannot get over the beauty, love and happiness that shows through them!

Picking a photographer was very hard! First of all, there are probably at least a couple HUNDRED wedding photographers in our county, so trying to narrow down our choices was almost overwhelming. Also, wedding photographers (even those who are less talented or have little experience) are VERY expensive, which is particularly frustrating if you're having a fairly simple wedding on a tight budget. However, we also realized that good photos were going to be one of the most important parts of our wedding day. They are something you will have forever, can share widely, will look at often, and can use and view in a multitude of ways. So, finding the right photographer was VERY important to us!

Bottom line: We are very glad we hired Dan! He was willing to adjust a photography package to better fit our needs and our budget, and we truly appreciated that. But more than that, he truly is an artist. He has an eye for framing photos beautifully, and his editing work is just gorgeous. (Don't short-change yourself on his editing work; make sure your package includes plenty of it!)

He also was very unobtrusive as he worked, even though our wedding venue was very small. He shot our wedding by himself, but he managed to really get around without being in the way. In fact, of the hundreds of photos that family members and friends snapped that day, there were only a couple that caught Dan in action.

He also listened to what we wanted for posed group photos, and was very agreeable and personable and friendly. We also received the photos much more quickly than we had expected, so that was a definite bonus! But most important of all, just look at his work. Go to his website and view some of the thousands of photos posted there. He truly is a gifted artist.

I couldn't be happier that I chose Dan as the photographer for our wedding and engagement portraits. He's a true artist, with a remarkable eye and great technical skill. Moreover, he's a sweet, kind soul who made even the most self-conscious bride (a.k.a. Me) feel confident and beautiful. Our photos are incredible. Choosing Dan could be the smartest decision you make for your wedding.
