Hey Wedding Wire!

I've been shooting weddings all over Oregon for the past 9 years. I hope that you can tell from my work that I LOVE weddings, especially in Oregon. I love the unpredictability of Oregon weather and some of my favorite shots of all time have come in the rain or snow. I live in Corvallis which I think is perfect because I'm right in the middle of the state. If you check out my website (www.becerraphotography.com) you'll notice weddings from every corner of our beautiful state.

In 2015 I want to really focus on Southern Oregon. I'm from Klamath Falls and I'm in the Ashland/Medford area often so I'm running a special this year. No travel fees to Southern Oregon! Grants Pass, Roseburg, Ashland, Klamath Falls, they are all avaiable to you at the same price as any other Oregon bride.

Thanks for taking a look at my storefront. Please contact me anytime!

Chris did wedding and engagement photos for us. For the wedding, he edited and sent us around 550 photos and was on site shooting for 8 hours with two photographers. If I were to plan another wedding, I would have him come earlier for more getting ready and wedding party photos and less candids of our guests at the receptions. We felt that Chris’s organization and attention to detail were lacking a bit. He showed up two hours earlier than we discussed to start shooting the day of the wedding. I had to remind him which package we had paid for, what we had previously paid, and to send an invoice for the balance owed. In our bridal party photos, he didn’t speak up when one of the groomsmen would always hold his hands different than the rest. I was also a little disappointed in the family photos we got, as spacing was totally off. This might just be me, as I am a detail person and this sort of thing bothers me. I just figured he would have spoken up if things looked off. We also didn’t get photos of centerpieces or the head table, which was something I had specifically requested. Looking back, I wish I would have our day-of coordinator oversee the photos and keep an eye on spacing issues, make sure I got photos of all the combinations of people that I wanted, and specific shots that I wanted.

Chris was great about making sure things went smoothly and reminding me not to stress. When issues came up, he politely reminded me that I had lined up people to take care of things like that, and that it would be fine. He also offered to coordinate parts of the ceremony, and asked if he should have guests go sit in their seats right before the ceremony (it was a very hot day and all the guests were standing in the shade). Overall, we were happy with the service that we received and the photos that Chris took. We got a lot of wonderful photos that I know we will love for years.

Becerra Photography responded with the following comments:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I truly appreciate your feedback and I’m so happy that you loved your wedding photos! I took to heart many of the things you said I could improve. I did arrive early. I think I put 12:00 instead of 2:00 in my calendar. I know it can seem unsettling to have someone arrive that early, so I will be sure to give brides a heads up that I usually do arrive early and also to verify my arrival time.
I apologize for not keeping better track of invoicing. I talked to my accountant and we’ve figured out a way to automate my invoicing so that in the future, brides will receive their invoices through my accountant and I can focus on shooting and interacting with couples. I’m excited that your suggestion spurred this change and I look forward to providing a smoother experience for couples in the future. On your wedding day, I do remember telling the groomsman several times to hold his hands like the others. After a few reminders I thought that he would do it so I focused on other elements of the group photos. I didn’t notice that his hands kept going to a different position and I apologize. On the picture with your family, I looked and unfortunately I just made a mistake.  I often shoot with a wide open aperture that helps separate people from a background and it creates a nice background blur.  It's a little risky in a group shot because people can stand different distances from the camera and if they are too far off of the same plane they could be out of focus.  I think this is what happened with your brother. It is rare that I miss a shot like this.  I didn't notice that he was standing farther back and therefore he is a little bit out of focus. I just made a mistake and I am sorry.  As I said in a previous email, I was able to upload the pictures of the arch and centerpieces that were previously missing. Thanks again for your feedback and I look forward to capturing more of your family’s special moments!

I simply could not be happier that we made the decision to hire Chris. We met him at a Starbucks one dark weekday night and it was a clear and easy decision then and there. The amount of genuine care Chris has for photography was obvious. It wasn’t just point, shoot, have a nice life – it was the passionate process of creating and preserving art. From the stories he told us about creating fake sunshine on a rainy wedding day to the detail in the leather binding of the photo albums he shared with us, it was apparent he enjoys what he does and that he cares very much about the moments he captures. The day of our wedding we enjoyed candid conversation with Chris while his familiarity with his equipment and our venue really helped our day move along in a smooth, stress-free way, (which is saying a lot considering we chose not to have a day of coordinator). I will remember our experience with Chris forever and would recommend him to anyone with the highest regards. We wish nothing but the best for him and his family and I look forward to the possibility of having him photograph our future life moments, should he be available.

Chris was AMAZING as our wedding photographer!!! He was so easy to work with in the planning phase leading up to the wedding, and on the wedding day he was clearly working so hard, and got amazing shots that we didn't even dream of.

Chris is super easy going and friendly. He makes you feel comfortable, while also being really professional and making sure to get the best shots. We wanted someone who wouldn't be afraid to direct us and tell us when we were making our goofy photo faces and needed to shake it out, and Chris was awesome at that. He also did a great job of getting our 3 and 6 y/o ring bearer and flower girl to cooperate and pose - a miracle!

Midway through the reception, Chris hooked up a screen in the corner to display all the photos he'd taken so far, and everyone was floored! The bridal photos were amazing, and he managed to turn a cloudy spring day into the most perfect setting. It was so fun getting to see some of the pictures right away, and pretty amazing how awesome they were when he hadn't even done any editing to them yet. Just a week after the wedding, he put some of the shots up on his blog and posted them to Facebook, and all of our friends/family/wedding guests cannot get over how well they turned out! Some of the guests are already asking for his contact info for their weddings, and we will very happily recommend him!! I can't wait to see the rest of the photos when they're done, but I have no doubt at all that we will love them!

Chris is GREAT! He did our engagement and wedding photos and I can't say enough about how wonderful he is as a professional, a great guy and a photographer. What I love about his work is he captures the emotion while making the photos real and natural (plus he makes us look darn good).

He did our engagement photos and after I started following his blog: http://www.becerraphotography.com/blog/ and because of Chris's talent I find myself caught up in these photos of people I have never met. Check out his blog, chat with him on the phone or email and you will instantly like him. After seeing his blog photos and looking at reviews there will be no doubt that you will want him to be part of your wedding.

Chris is an AMAZING photographer and person! We spent a lot of time looking for and meeting with photographers for our wedding and must have met with at least half a dozen photographers and looked through 20+ online. We loved his website, his photos really caught our eye- we loved the inspired light and true emotion. When we met with him, it was like fate. He truly loves what he does and it is evident in how he talks about photography and his work. He is truly passionate about what he does. Our engagement photos were amazing and it gave us the chance to get to know him more. He suffered through our engagement session with a smile although he was sick with the stomach flu! He is so dedicated and so talented! And he literally carries all of his equipment around with him so is like an amazing one man show! Chris Becerra is by far the best photographer and you will not regret working with him! You will love your wedding photos; just check out his website and blog and you will not be disappointed!

Having Chris Becerra as your photographer is a MUST for ANY occasion you want a professional photographer for. My husband and I got married recently and I knew from looking at his portfolio that I had to have Chris shoot our wedding. I am happy to say I wasn't disappointed with the service we received from Chris! Not only is he amazingly talented, he is also a joy to work with. He goes above and beyond for his clients and captured some awesome (and hilarious) shots of our wedding day. Our wedding guests had a great time with Chris and commented on how nice and fun he made the wedding day for everyone. Chris was extremely helpful with the entire wedding day process on top of taking photographs. He is truly a man of many talents! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer and photos of our wedding. I will always think of Chris and how he perfectly memorialized one of the happiest days of our lives when I look at our wedding photos. My husband and I cannot wait to travel back to Oregon and have another family photo shoot with Chris!

Becerra Photography recently photographed our wedding. The pictures are amazing! They really caught all of the different moments in the wedding, some that we didn't even see. There was a lot of attention paid to even the smallest details, some which may have been forgotten. Chris was very easy to work with from the minute that we met him. Very easy going, flexible and friendly. The second photographer that worked with him was very friendly as well. The photographs are very creative and beautiful. We got a sneak peak about a week after our wedding and then all the photographs digitally in less than two weeks. I thought that I was going to have to wait longer! I would definitely hire Becerra Photography for any event. Very professional and worth it!

I found Becerra Photography because a friend of mine had posted gorgeous pictures of her wedding on Facebook that Chris took. I contacted Chris shortly after becoming engaged, and we met up with him at his home to discuss our wedding. His house and studio are lovely, and Chris made us feel incredibly comfortable right away. My husband (then fiance) really hates having his picture taken and ESPECIALLY hates being asked to smile or pose, so I thought this was going to prove very challenging for our photographer. When we talked to Chris about this he assured us that he would photograph the moment--whatever that was, and that the REAL MOMENT is often so beautiful. If a bride is feeling nervous or the groom is feeling excited--these are the things to document.

On our wedding day Chris showed up promptly and with a giant smile on his face. You can tell that Chris enjoys his job, and it makes it so, so nice to work with him. It rained TERRIBLY on our wedding day, and he was ready with rain gear and all if I decided to still hold pictures outdoors (I didn't.) Our plans went out the window, and Chris was so flexible. Even though we didn't do the outdoor pictures like we discussed they still turned out fabulous indoors--thanks to Chris.

My husband and I were married in my parents living room right in front of the Christmas tree among our closest family and friends. I was very, very concerned that Chris would struggle to take good pictures AND struggle to maneuver around the guests during the ceremony in such a small space, but that worry was for nothing. Chris captured BEAUTIFUL pictures of our ceremony, and I never knew he was there--not a single moment. He is like a photography ninja or something.

Chris also offers off season package prices that were so affordable. We appreciated that extra break. Check his website for new prices and dates on that--it pays not to get married in the summer! Look no further because you found your photographer!

Chris is brilliant at his craft and has a keen eye to get the best shots. He made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease and captured our day beautifully. He didn't even hesitate to lay down in the mud to get the best angle! And he even ran back after he was getting packed up to leave to catch a few shots with impromptu fireworks, so dedicated and passionate about capturing the moments. Will definitely be recommending Chris to our friends & family and will plan on using him again in the future!
