Brightwood Photography was started when three friends chose to capture the joy they saw in the world around them.


We are storytellers who are committed to documenting your day and making you smile. Over the past few years, we've learned to embrace our ability to visually share what life and love is all about.

On a more personal side, we're all true believers that a good hike is good for the mind and soul. We love taking risks and we consider getting our shoes dirty or holding a pose to get the best photo is what it's all about.

Brightwood Photography is Greg Balkin, Tim Kressin, and Davis Goslin.

Our primary location is Los Angeles and Orange County, but we have a strong travel bug. We've lived in New Zealand and walked across national parks, so there's no job too far or out of the ordinary for us. Read less

A photographer to me (the bride) was one of the most important elements when planning our wedding. I knew right away from viewing a few of their photographs online that Brightwood Photography was exactly what I was looking for-natural light, candid’s, and a creative artistic eye. Being a destination wedding in S. California we couldn't physically meet, however Greg was flexible with meeting us via skype, corresponding promptly via email, and phone calls when need be. Greg has this insane calm and personable presence about him that would put any person especially bride and groom at ease! Greg instantly felt like a friend to us. We let Brightwood Photography take the reins for the photographs and creative direction and we were NOT disappointed. We have the most beautiful photos to look back on from our special day! We are so glad and grateful to have Brightwood Photography capture our wedding story. You guys are AWESOME!

My husband and I were very pleased with Brightwood Photography's service! They took the time to get to know us and the style of wedding we were planning, which allowed them to capture each moment with our personalities in mind. They tailored their service to capture our day in a professional and unique way. I was very pleased with their timely nature and the quality of equipment used. They were also very quick to deliver the photos to us via the internet which allowed us to share easily with those individuals from out of state. I would without a doubt recommend Brightwood Photography because they strive to deliver a high quality service and product at a very reasonable price! You want a photographer that cost a arm, but it was nice to keep my leg.

We couldn't have better things to say about working with Brightwood. They were extremely professional and a breeze to deal with on our big day (and so accommodating being that they had to travel 6+ hrs for our event) . All of our guests continue to comment on how fun they were and it really shows in the pictures.

It is very obvious that these guys love what they do, and it is reflected in their mannerisms and photography. Between our engagement and wedding photos we have so many favorite shots. The turn-around on the pictures, the quality, and service exceeded all our expectations. Brightwood is a wonderful photography service and we would recommend them to everyone.

Brightwood Photography was awesome to work with! They are fun and easy going guys which really helped to relieve the stress the day of. They also worked great with our videographers and were respectful not to get in each other's shots. They were very professional and truly listen to their clients wishes and let us do our own thing and whatever poses we wanted to do or spots we wanted to take pictures and were good sports and followed us everywhere. My husband and I are very detailed oriented and have very high expectations of perfection and Brightwood Photography definitely did not disappoint! We were very happy with all our photos and received them all back about a month after our wedding. I would also highly recommend using them to create a wedding album because their books are amazing and very high quality. :)

I have gotten so many compliments on my wedding and engagement pictures and I owe it all to Brightwood! They are not only professional but are fun to work with and work well with other vendors (such as videographers). They have a unique eye for what will turn an ordinary picture into something extraordinary.

I found Brightwood through a blog online, when I was looking for photos of weddings at my venue, the Temecula Creek Inn. I think they are extremely reasonably priced, especially for how talented they are. When I first met with them, I was shocked to see how young they were, but their portfolio was fantastic, so I just tried to not let that bother me. They showed up on time, and were very professional all day. Our photographers were Tim and Greg, and they were both great. Two days after the wedding, they sent a few preview photos, and I can already say I am 110% thrilled with them. Also, another great thing is that they said turn around time for ALL of our photos would only be about 4-6 weeks. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone getting married in Southern California
