Found Joe through our venue. He was great from the start till the delivery of the album. He had great ideas for our engagement session. The day of our wedding was a rainy day and he had called ahead to Mission San Juan Capistrano, so that we would have a plan B for our romantic portraits.
I would recommend Joe for your wedding. Thank you again Joe for your amazing work! C&J

DON'T DO IT, YOU'LL REGRET IT FOREVER! THIS DUDE IS THE WORST! TO ME, HE STOLE OUR MONEY AND NEVER DELIVERED ON HIS SIDE OF THE CONTRACT. DO NOT SIGN A CONTRACT WITH HIM, YOU DON'T WANT A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO DOESN'T CALL BACK, HAS A MILLION EXCUSES, TAKES YOUR MONEY, HAS POOR WORK ETHICS, DOESN'T KNOW HIS OWN CLIENTS NAME, AND HIS PICTURES SUCK!!!! HE WAS A REFERRAL FROM A VENDOR WE USED. We have started with contacting the Better Business Bureau and filing a complaint that is step 1. READ BELOW ( PART OF EMAIL CHAIN WITH JOE, NO MORE ROOM) Re: Photographer Cancellation October 18, 2014 Sunday, November 2, 2014 3:51 PM Mark as Unread Flag this message From: "Janice Sagar" To: "Broccardo Photography" How sorry are you? Seriously we fired your unprofessional ass on 10/10/14, because of you not being able to perform the job you stated you could do. I had to reach out to Lynne more than once to get a response from you. I don't know if you realize it but your response came on 10/30/14 20 days after the fact. Seriously dude you're kidding yourself if you think for a minute you did your job. The retainer The retainer I made was to hold the date and for you to do your job, you didn't deliver on your side of the contract. Furthermore who the hell is "Jeff"? You should really proof read and/or spell check your emails prior to sending. Additionally, you really need to learn when to use the correct punctuation in emails. Grammar 101 will teach you when to use a question mark, comma, period etc. How sad is it that you don't even know our names, but yet you still think you did your job and therefore you can keep our deposit?

I would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for a photographer. He did our wedding and was everything we wanted and more. Any shot we wanted he was all for it, he gave really great suggestions and was a dream to work with. All of our guests loved him and Sarah both. They were a pleasure to work with, very easy to get in touch with, willing to show us many options, gave us great tips, etc. Their laid back personalities meshed great with our vibe. Joe went out of his way to work with our schedules so we could meet in person and was really part of what made our wedding day so fun. If we ever need a photographer for anything I will absolutely be using them again. Their work is beautiful and their service and personalities exceed expectations by far.

Wonderful Job! So easy to work with. Joe has a great eye for all the details. He got pictures to me right away and a preview slide show in just a couple days. It was so fun to see a glimpse of the wedding photos.
Easy going and gets the shots right away. Never felt pressure. It made the day so easy and was able to enjoy the day. He makes you feel comfortable and at ease.
I will refer him to any bride or friend wanting pictures. I loved my engagement photos as well.
Great Job!!

Joe was AMAZING to work with!!! He made the whole process easy and most of all fun. We could not have asked for a better photographer. He captured every special moment! Not only is his work beautiful, he really made an effort to get to know us, supported us, and made sure our day was going exactly how we envisioned. My husband and I were beyond excited and happy with our pictures. Joe is the best and he captured the essence of who my husband and I are and the happiness we shared that day!

Joe is awesome and a very talented photographer! We are so happy that we chose Joe to photograph our wedding because he was professional, easy going and his pictures are amazing. We interviewed a few photographers, but after meeting with Joe in person and viewing his portfolio the choice was easy to go with him. On the day of the wedding, he was really laid back, easy going and fun to be around. You could tell from the way he was posing us and giving us instruction that he was a pro at what he was doing. We've been photographed by not so experienced photographers before and believe me there is a difference when you work with a photographer that knows what he is doing! His turnaround time in delivering pictures is quick too! My wedding was 16 days ago. We received a link today with a very well done slideshow of some of the photos from the wedding and they were beautiful! Looking at the photos brought me back to my wedding day and I was overjoyed =) In the sampling, there were some posed shots, some artistic shots and others that really captured our emotions. My husband and I are very pleased. We cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures. I won't sleep because of the excitement. I cannot thank Joe enough for helping to make our wedding day experience so wonderful and for capturing our day so magnificently. He kept us relaxed, laughing and having a genuinely good time posing for the camera and I have the pictures to prove it =) We were really impressed by Joe I know for sure he will impress you too!

We used Broccardo Photography for our wedding last summer. Joe was by far the most affordable in the Orange County area. The package included two photographers, 6 hours of shooting, a disk of the images, and 4X6 prints of our favorites. Joe was fun to work and put us at ease with his easy going manner. The pictures came out fabulous too! I highly recommend shooting at the Mission San Juan Capistrano if you have the opportunity. The only issue was it took quite awhile to get the photos, over two months (contract stated 4 weeks) and we had to cull down from 1,000 photos.
