Drew is a storyteller. Past clients have referred to him as a 'photo-ninja'. He is a keen observer of light, form, emotion, and human behavior. Drew approaches a wedding as a photojournalist - aiming to tell a visual story about people, place, and experience. In addition to candid images your photo story will also include creative portraits and artistic photos of details including architecture, landscapes, clothing, food, and decor.

Drew proudly supports equal marriage rights.

Drew's passion for storytelling and photography is rooted in balance: beautiful, artistic imagery is the result of personal connection with his clients and the patience required to understand and anticipate the spontaneity of events unfolding around him. Drew is an active member in the prestigious Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). According to their website, the WPJA is "an international network of vigorously vetted professional photographers" and they are "dedicated to upholding the highest standards in creative wedding photojournalism while promoting best business practices."

Drew is also an active member in the esteemed International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP). The ISPWP is a highly exclusive group of the best wedding photographers from around the world. As their website suggests, "when you hire an ISPWP Photographer, you are hiring a talented veteran with a track record, peer recognition, and a passion for creating heirloom images of your wedding."

Drew has photographed in a diverse range of genres. His photo stories have focused on urban agriculture, food culture, the music industry, cultural landscapes, travel, human-environment stories and weddings. His work focuses primarily on long-term photojournalistic storytelling.

When not photographing Drew enjoys surfing, walking in the mountains, growing organic vegetables, reading, playing guitar, and laughing as he bicycles past cars that are stuck in traffic.

There is only one opportunity to capture the importance of an event like a wedding. Thankfully, Drew dashed our anxieties by quickly delivering an amazing set of photos from our San Francisco City Hall wedding. Initially, we were drawn to Drew's photojournalism style and after reviewing the photos, we could not be more pleased with the results. He masterfully juxtaposed our ceremony with the amazing light and architecture of the SF City Hall building.

Prior to event, communication and planning went very smoothly. Despite neither party being based in SF, he had no issues meeting us there and even did some preliminary scouting the day before. With all the preparation, our photo session went very efficiently. We never felt rushed, and it left us plenty of time to enjoy our day.

After the event, Drew kept us up to date with the status of the pictures, and delivered them exactly when he promised (and for a very reasonable price).

Overall, we were extremely happy with Drew's professionalism and most importantly his talent. We will treasure our photos for years to come.

What a pleasure it was to work with Drew! From the very first meeting, we felt so comfortable with him and could tell that he really loves what he does. He was very easy going, fun to work with, and got along so well with all of the various people involved in the planning process. We had a very large wedding and he and the 2nd photographer that he brought in were able to nicely demonstrate the overall excitement of the large event as well as beautifully capture the more intimate moments of the day. We are so happy with the results and recommend Drew Bird Photography wholeheartedly!

Drew was outstanding. He did an impeccable job capturing our favorite moments, and his photos really tell the story of our wedding. Every time we look through them we feel like we are reliving the day, and we always seem to discover something new! Not only is his work wonderful and creative, he is incredibly professional. He was somehow everywhere at once at the wedding, capturing all the key and intimate moments, but also unobtrusive. So many of our guests, especially those who recently had weddings (and their own photographers), commented on the fact that he blended in seamlessly, and those who he did interact with had nothing but nice things to say about him.

Drew's professionalism also extended to the months leading up to the wedding. He always responded immediately to our emails, and he took the time to meet with us twice before the wedding to go over anything and everything we wanted to talk about. Those meetings went a long way in making us feel calm and comfortable about the photography and the event in general, and Drew never rushed us. He was patient and offered advice when we asked, but never intruded on our decisionmaking or told us that we had to do something a certain way. For example, we were not very into the idea of posed shots, and Drew suggested to us a few posed shots that he thought would look really nice, but immediately moved on to focusing on the look and feel that we were going for. We ended up taking the posed shots he suggested, and we are really glad that we did.

As you can probably tell from this lengthy review, we could not have been happier with Drew and would highly recommend him for any event!

We could not be happier that we hired Drew to be our photographer! Drew is extremely warm, kind, calming, patient, honest, knowledgeable, talented, and professional—basically, he is just the type of person with whom you want to share one of the most important (yet potentially stressful) days of your life!

Throughout the wedding planning process, Drew was an absolute pleasure to work with. A couple of weeks before the wedding, we set up a call to discuss wedding details and what we hoped for in our photographs. Drew was completely open to all of our ideas, but he was upfront about where there might be limitations based on timing, lighting, etc. He also gave us some good tips about how to move through portraits as quickly as possible and how best to schedule the day. The phone call left us feeling like we had a good sense of what to expect the day of the wedding and how to prepare to make things move along most efficiently.

Drew caught tons of priceless, candid moments during the ceremony and reception, while managing to remain completely unobtrusive. After the ceremony, he was able to pull off an amazing overhead group portrait of my husband and me with all of our wedding guests, which was no easy feat given the number of guests, topography, and harsh sunlight at our mid-day outdoor wedding. We are so pleased with that portrait and all of the other portraits, but the candid shots Drew took during the ceremony and reception were probably the greatest treat for us to comb through after the wedding. Drew was able to capture in photos exactly how our wedding felt to us, and we could not be happier with the beautiful photographs we have to commemorate the day. We could not recommend Drew more highly!

Drew was able to capture in photos exactly how our wedding felt to us, and we could not be happier with the beautiful photographs we have to commemorate the day. We could not recommend Drew more highly! Read less

We can't say enough good things--Drew was professional and very reliable. It was really important to us that we found a photographer who was amazing at their job (obviously) but also someone we felt comfortable with and wanted to be around---aside from each other, he was the person we spent the most time with on one of the most important days of our life. We had a fantastic time during the photo shoots and that's evident in how comfortable we look in the pictures. He is the perfect mix of directive and setting up a few shots and journalistic and just capturing the moment. We couldn't be more pleased with our wedding photos!

I am a wedding planner and had the privilege of working with Drew on a wedding this past year. He was incredible and my clients had nothing but positive things to say about him! He put my clients at ease throughout the day and made them feel very comfortable in front of the camera. The pictures turned out absolutely amazingly, so amazing that they are the spotlight on a few pages of my businesses website. Any couple would be lucky to work with Drew for their big day or any important event.

Planning a wedding is an extremely stressful experience and my husband and I chose each vendor carefully. We were extremely lucky to come across Drew and were thoroughly impressed with his portfolio. Drew met with us multiple times prior to the wedding to discuss our style, the event and what our expectations were for the day and the wedding. On the day of, Drew kept us calm and collected as he constructed a beautiful "first look" utilizing our ceremony space and decorations. When Drew took pictures of the two of us, we relied on Drew to create natural pictures using the landscape. They turned out beautifully and don't look like cheesy wedding pictures.

During the ceremony and reception Drew captured memories of not just the two of us, but all of our guests and the atmosphere and thoughtfully portray a story with his pictures. Since both of our families are large, I was shocked and impressed that Drew took charge to take the family pictures efficiently and beautifully.

Our guests loved the pictures and said it allowed them to see moments that they missed, which was exactly how we felt. I would recommend Drew to anyone looking for a creative, professional and talented photographer!

We had a fantastic experience with Drew and Drew Bird Photography, and we couldn't be happier with how the photos of our destination wedding in Puerto Rico turned out. Drew was a positive and calming presence on our wedding day, and was extremely easy to work with during the planning process (which was done remotely since we were in different cities). Everyone is raving about the photos, which truly capture the feel of our wedding. Drew managed to capture everything from the sweeping setting to the tiniest details, and I hardly knew he was there. We will treasure the beautiful photos he created for years to come. Highly recommended!

I have nothing but outstanding things to say about Drew and His and Her Photography.
Some details:

He's a delight: Drew's easy demeanor and kind spirit were the first thing my husband and I noticed. He seemed very interested in delivering the kinds of pictures we wanted, and wanted to make sure he could deliver (he did!).

He captures moments not poses: Sure he can do particular pictures if you want him to (and is happily willing), but what set Drew apart from other photographers is how he captures authentic emotions throughout our wedding day. Looking at these photos brings us back to the feelings we were experiencing during the day, it's incredible.

The guy does crazy impressive things with light: I'm no photographer, but the way Drew captures beautiful images and light when the light seemed less than ideal is kind of awe inspiring.

Value: My husband and I looked at a number of photographers who were charging much more than Drew. He could (and maybe should) charge more for his work.

He's unobtrusive: Drew captured a TON of images during our wedding, yet no one seemed to notice him. He was ALWAYS there, but never-ever in the way.

This chica with high standards doesn't have a single negative thing to say. THANK YOU!
