Cary is a nice guy and before the wedding he is very responsive. After your wedding is over, you need to email him at least 2 times to get him to respond to you. Then he will be weeks and months late from what is listed on your contract with downloading your photos and delivering your album. First he only uploaded half of our photos and blamed the internet. We got the package with the album included and here is where the excuses really came. There was always some sort of crisis going on in his life/family or he's just on vacation somewhere with no internet which is why he could not return emails, send you the link to download your photos and finish up your wedding album.

It has been 9 MONTHS since my wedding and I still do not have my wedding album. He claims he is very busy, someone is always ill, he has limited internet, blamed me by saying I didn't respond to the album company's email (I never got it), and when you ask him questions like, how many photos do I pick for my album? He doesn't respond to your email so I picked way too many photos and emailed them to him hoping to get a response about my album so he could start it and then he told me I picked too many and never saw my email where I asked how many photos....even though he just responded to it. He only gives you half the information when he asks you to do something and when you email him for clarification, he never responds to your emails. Nice photos but horrific customer service.

You cannot make a better choice for your wedding photographer than Cary Pennington. Not only does Cary have exceptional talent, he is personal and places a sincere priority with capturing every important moment of your wedding day. He is creative, patient, professional, and like a family member when it comes to making the "subjects" comfortable and confident with every picture he tries to capture. He has his own family, and kids, so he displays that sincere personal touch when working with kids, and knows how important every part of the day is to the bride and groom. Photography is an evident passion for Cary, and never leaves you feeling like he wants the party or day to be over- he is with you thru the end. Cary has been the photographer for two weddings in my family, and recommend him to anyone who wants their perfect day captured in exceptional photography.

From the first day we met Cary he was amazing and very easy to work with. He was very accommodating to our schedules and made every photo shoot fun and memorable. Our families loved his professionalism, humor and we were very pleased with the final products that he produced! We absolutely recommend him for anyone who wants top quality photoswhile simultaneously having a blast doing it. We definitely will be using him for future photos!

Cary is excellent at finding creative shots that create artful scenes. As a graphic designer with professional experience working with photographers I looked through almost all of the photographers San Diego had to offer and I just loved Cary's style and the artful compositions his photographs create. He is also a real people person and true romantic so you will have a wonderful time during your photo sessions with him. The complementary engagement session is a must to get to know Cary and for you to feel comfortable as a couple taking photographs. I think photography is very much a, "you get what you pay for" service, and I think Cary is a great value for a great great product. My husband and I would definitely hire him again.

Cary Pennington Photography: Stunning and artistic wedding photos you will love forever

Let me start by saying that Cary’s photos are gorgeous, without question. He is not only a professional and talented photographer but is also so personable that it made it easy for us to “be ourselves” in front of the camera. For that little narcissist in all of us, rest assured that Cary will catch you in the best possible light. He will capture the moments just as they unfold, whether they be silly or sweet, and he will beautifully photograph all the small details you worked so hard to create. He is passionate about what he does, and it shows in his work. Everyone says it, and it’s completely true – your wedding will pass by in a flash and we are so happy he captured so many special moments that we will truly cherish forever. Our biggest problem is picking our favorites…can’t frame them all!

I love taking pictures and looking at pictures from past vacations/events, so having a good wedding photographer was really important to me. We looked at booking a photographer before we booked any other vendors because the photos had to be perfect. After searching for photographers online for days, reading reviews, and looking through the work of the preferred vendors from our wedding venue, we decided that Cary was the photographer we wanted. We met with him later in the week, as well as several other photographers, and Cary was still our favorite by far. He had a lot of knowledge to share with us, was easy to talk to, and the photos he showed us were phenomenal.

On our wedding day, Cary had specific locations around the venue selected for photos, based on the lighting at that time of day. We didn't have to think about where to go next because he already had it set up for us. He even took photos of us with our dogs after the reception was over (it was a day time wedding). Dogs are really unpredictable in pictures, but Cary got some great shots of us with them. All of the other pictures he took were great also. The angles were really creative, and the colors look amazing. We were definitely not disappointed and would highly recommend Cary to any of our friends getting married in the future.

My husband and I had Cary as our photographer for our engagement and wedding photos! He is so amazing! I saw Cary's work a few years before we got engaged, and wanted to hire him for my wedding ever since! His photos capture so much emotion and have a beautiful artistic quality. We were so fortunate to have worked with Cary!

Cary was the first vendor we hired, and he was so helpful from the minute I called him. He really helped us determine what our priorities were for our wedding day, and he recommended some other great vendors that we ended up selecting as well.

You have to really like your photographer because they are with you most of the day on our wedding day, and you kiss a lot in front of them and stuff. I am usually really nervous about having my picture taken, but Cary made us feel totally comfortable the whole time. He helped us learn how to be photographed during our engagement photos so we were naturals for our wedding. Cary made my husband and I both look great! He is such a pro. He and his assistant captured every moment I could have wanted, and my husband and I LOVE our engagement and wedding photos!

Hiring Cary for photography was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Both he and his assistant were amazing to work with and their photos were incredible! I thought I would probably have 20 or 30 favorites, but there's over 100 that are just too good to be true! Cary is very personable, my wife and I loved working with him and so did all of our vendors. I would recommend Cary to everyone!

Cary is amazing!!! He was the best wedding photographer I could EVER ask for. I am very particular about my photos and he gave me a perfect mix of artsy, timeless, classic photos and I could not be happier.

Cary made every effort to meet our needs. We wanted to do our engagement pictures out of town and he was happy to accommodate. He drove 5 hours to take our pictures then drove home the same day! Talk about dedication :)

Cary's pictures are an art form and help capture every moment of the day. I would love to work with Cary again if given the opportunity!
