Gavin & Erin Wade are a phenomenal photography team & personally the only team I would recommend to have on your special wedding day! They are both polite, professional, flexible & fun to work with. My first encounter with them was at my brother's wedding and I knew I had to have them at my wedding. They are a little expensive, but trust me they are worth every penny, if not more. Their attention to detail, lighting and sunset photos are stunning. I recommend them to all my friends & family. Can't tell enough, how special they made our day!

We used Gavin and Erin for both our engagement and wedding photography, and it was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process! They are true professionals who care about what they do and will go to great lengths to please their clients. We were pretty indecisive about a lot of things, but they took everything in stride and adjusted to what we needed. The photos all turned out amazing with a quick turnaround time, and their file-sharing service is super convenient. We can't wait to come up with another reason to get photographed to utilize their services again!

Gavin and his assistant did a remarkable job with photographing our wedding. It was a small wedding (75 people) so I was remiss that there weren't more photos of our guests at the reception but luckily a friend took lots of those for us. Almost all the essential photos were there though so overall we are happy with them. I had hoped for some more scenic photos since I loved the setting of our venue but there were only a few. That being said, our photos were absolutely beautiful and when I looked through them I was amazed at how many priceless moments were captured.

The photobooth he supplied was beautiful and elegant but if I had to do it over again I'd choose a closed in one that printed out the photos to the guests on the spot. It's just kind of a pain to have to distribute them to our guests afterward via the email link. And I wasn't aware that we were supposed to supply our own props until a couple days before the wedding which added stress to an already stressful time but luckily Gavin saved the day and brought some himself.

Gavin was a great person to work with and had lots of energy throughout the day. I am very glad we chose him for the job.

Gavin and Erin did a fantastic job with our wedding photographs!

Even from our initial conversations I learned so much about photography and felt immediately at ease. I didn't feel pressured to select them as our wedding photographers but am so happy we did. They are timeless photos that will we will have for our entire lives.

We have already received so many compliments on our engagement pictures, they even captured our dog smiling. They were quick to get us back edited wedding photos and we we're so happy for that. It's great to re-live the wedding each time we look at our pictures. Each detail from the wedding was captured which is great since you aren't able to spend as much time as you'd like at the wedding looking at all the beautiful details. Thanks again Gavin and Erin for all your hard work!

When we first saw Gavin and Erin's work, it really stood out from the rest! Being an artist myself, I'm a big fan of the golden hour sunset lighting. The thought of having our actual pictures with this lighting was really appealing to me. My wife and I started off with the engagement photos with Gavin at the Irvine Regional Park. It had a lot of green, a little lake, and a mini-train track. There were also some peacocks walking around. When we received the photo files from Gavin, we were blown away by the lighting and compositions! I printed high quality giclee (ultra-fine print) and framed them for our wedding and they are now hanging beautifully on our wall at home.

For our wedding, Gavin and Erin also did another amazing job! Their professionalism and direction is easy and it flows. We were afraid we wouldn't have enough time to get many of the group shots, but we ended up having more than enough time, so we had to gather people, family and friends to take more pictures because of the extra little time we had.

When we received the wedding photos back, we were again happily satisfied with the results. Thank you Gavin and Erin for your amazing work! You perfectly captured our special day.

Gavin and Erin who worked as a team to take all of our wedding photos were absolutely amazing from the moment they arrived to the delivery of the most breathtaking photos. At first we weren't sure whether to hire them because they were a bit over our budget for photography, but they wiggled hours and price for us so to make it work. It's the best money spend by FAR! They made the family photos go quickly and organized. They were so flexible taking photos in about 7 different backgrounds we asked for. Our photos were delivered within just about a week after the wedding which is incredible. They gave us all the best photos so we didn't have to sort through 1000 photos. Instead we got about 400 money shots to pick from! It's truly hard to pick a favorite. These guys are the best and when you only get one chance to capture the moments, you truly deserve the best! Thanks Gavin and Erin!

Gavin and Erin are the best photographers you could ask for!! They exceeded all of our expectations. Leading up to the wedding, they were very responsive, organized, and made sure they knew exactly what we wanted.

The pictures from our engagement session were incredible. They helped us pick a location that would give some beautiful background shots, as well as capture us in the perfect light. Erin was very helpful with outfit choices and gave us some tips for poses and that looked natural.

Both Gavin and Erin were magnificent on our wedding day. They were flexible, relaxed and even helped calm nerves. We loved how they captured our first look. They ensured that it was only the two of us and they were able to photograph the moment while making it seem as though they weren't even there. We especially liked that they had the list of family and bridal party pictures we provided and were able to get them done in a timely, professional way. We communicated that we wanted their focus to be mostly on photographing us (the bride and groom), which they executed beautifully. We have stunning pictures!! Erin and Gavin even pulled us away from the reception a few times to capture more moments. We have some incredible pictures during the "golden hour" and at dusk.

Both sets of our parents were thrilled with them during the wedding and absolutely love the photos. We have never received more compliments on the engagement and wedding photos. Our friends and family commented that we had the BEST photographers and that our pictures were beautiful. We were stunned by how quickly we received our edited photos just a few weeks after the wedding. We will treasure these photos forever and are so thankful for Gavin and Erin and their hard work and dedication to our wedding day! We cannot recommend better photographers than Gavin and Erin!!

If you're looking for photographers on your big day, GET GAVIN AND ERIN! You can't have a better choice.

My husband and I live outside the US. Planning our wedding and finding vendors from far away wasn't easy. We needed people who are prompt at replying to our emails, reassuring that they'll take care of things we need them to take care of and who are best at what they do. Thank God I found Gavin and Erin because they're exaclty these people we were looking for. I can't count how many photographers i sent inquiry emails to. Gavin and Erin were the quickest and most professional at responding and communicating with them was a breeze. Once I booked them for our wedding, they set up a Skype date so we could touch base and get to know each other. My husband and i felt right at ease with them.

On the day of our wedding, they made sure everything went smoothly and that we had photos with everybody. Every special moment was captured! They made us feel very comfortable with them that made the pictorial natural as if we didn't need to pose.

These two are such an awesome team. What's great about them is that they know how exactly each other works and what the other needs. Their work flow is just superb. They're both so friendly and funny, it's impossible for you not to want to be friends with them after the wedding.

Just a few days after our big day, we got our high resolution photos already and they turned out superb! All our friends and family loooved every shot!

We are so happy with our decision with these lovebirds and I am certain that if you get them, you'll say the same.?

Thanks Gav and Erin!

I first met Gavin and Erin when they were the photographers at my cousin's wedding that I was a bridesmaid in. After about a minute of talking to them you feel like you have been friends with them for years. Their personalities are beyond perfect for their profession - weddings can be very chaotic and stressful, and both Gavin and Erin are calm, supportive, and always positive. They are more than happy to step in and help or give their opinions (which should be listened to considering the massive amount of experience they have with weddings and photography!), but they are also amazing listeners and truly have the bride and groom's best interest in mind! These qualities are hard to come by, and the fact that you get two photographers who possess them for your wedding day is incredibly beneficial!

As amazing as their personalities are, their photography skills are just as impressive! When we received our pictures (less than two weeks after our wedding, which is much quicker than any other person I've talked to who did not have the pleasure of working with Gavin and Erin), the first thing my husband said was, "How did they make us look so good?!?" Every single picture, and there were close to 800 pictures, was perfect. The hardest part of this entire process was deciding on which pictures to have printed because they were all so good!

The last thing I want to mention is the feedback I've received from the guests at my wedding. My family loved how friendly they were, how many candid pictures they took of everyone, and how they got all of the important shots (ceremony, speeches, cake cutting, etc.) without blocking the guest's views. Erin even invited guests to stand right next to her if they were taking pictures as well, to get the best shot!

There is honestly not one negative thing that I can say about the quality of Gavin and Erin's work. They are a true dream team, and I guarantee that if you hire them you will not be disappointed!

Gavin Wade Photographers were recommended to us by our wedding coordinator at La Venta Inn. Gavin's website immediately captivated me by his and his wife, Erin's, gorgeous work. I called Gavin to learn more about pricing, packages, etc and immediately felt at ease - he is so professional and easy to talk to. My fiancé, at the time (now husband), and I scheduled a time to meet Gavin and Erin in person and to look at their custom wedding photo albums in person. We fell in love with not only their work but the both of them as individuals - we knew we found our dream wedding photographers! They are an amazing team!
I worked a lot with Gavin directly leading up to the wedding and he is such a great listener, incredibly responsive, and is always happy to help! At the day of the wedding, Erin was amazing in ensuring my 'must photo' list was complete! They are both so efficient as a team and always have a smile on their face. I received so many compliments at my wedding about how terrific the photographers were!
We received our online wedding photo gallery and pre-view of our custom wedding photo album in such a timely fashion after our wedding! We have had the chance to share our online gallery to family and friends and EVERYONE has commented saying how they are "the most gorgeous wedding photos they have ever seen!!".... "amazing photographers!!"..."your photographers captured your day so beautifully and perfect!!" The pictures are truly breathtaking to not only us but to everyone else. We truly feel no one could have captured our day more perfect than Gavin and Erin. Our wedding photos ARE the most gorgeous we have ever seen!! We cannot recommend Gavin and Erin enough...words can't describe how talented and special these two are!
