On the day of, Greg was so focused to the fine detail’s it made me that much more relaxed knowing we had someone just as focused as we are. He was accommodating, friendly, and such a pleasure to work with. My fiancé(now hubby) is extremely shy but Greg had him laughing and enjoying every second of pictures!

Every aspect of our experience with Greg & Jennifer was fantastic! Thank you so much for everything, and especially the amazing shots! They were very friendly and professional from the beginning. My husband & I were impressed with their attentiveness and quick response throughout the wedding planning, and both were exceptionally helpful on our special day! We were planning a wedding from out-of-state, but Greg made the process that much easier. They even took the time to scope-out our wedding venue and reception site so as to make the photos that much better. Greg was 100% accommodating and didn't charge us any additional fees or surprises, and even brought an additional photographer for our wedding (thank you Courtney!). Working with Greg was fantastic! I'm so glad we had the opportunity to meet them beforehand as it definitely eased our minds, as well as both Greg & Jennifer gave us some great tips and pointers for the ceremony. Greg was very laid back and funny, but professional and respectful. We're not exactly the creative type, but he managed to get quite a few out of us. We got a lot of really great posed pictures, but from the wedding our favorites were the ones that captured candid moments with us and the guests! I would definitely recommend Greg to anyone in CA and coming to San Diego from out of state! It all worked perfectly for us and the price was certainly right! Thank you Greg & Jennifer for an amazing experience and memorable photos!!

We won a free engagement shoot with Greg shortly after our engagement from a bridal show event. Our pictures turned out amazing! He was one of the first vendors we booked and we couldn't have been happier! He is so laid back but organized and professional. He had 6 professional shots to me the next day and they were stunning! People would see them and kept asking who our photographer was. Greg has a number of years of experience and recently started shooting weddings, so when we booked him he only had a few examples which made me hesitant at first. however, you could tell he had true talent and I'm so glad I followed my guy and booked him. Our pictures were beautiful, vibrant and full of color!

Greg is truly phenominal. His art is extraordinary. The best way I can describe him and his work is this... God see's the world and the people He created as beautiful. Even when we don't see our own beauty, we often need to remember to look at ourselves through God's eyes. I think looking at myself and my beloved Steve and our family and friends in Greg's pictures is very much like seeing us in God's eyes. Radiantly beautiful.
Greg was the 1st photographer I met and didn't consider meeting any more.
My then fiance, Steve and I to meet him and his wife, producer, Jennifer. We immediately fell in love with G and J. Not only were they an incredible team, they were passionate about capturing and creating something so spectacularly beautiful. We were confident that our wedding would be the most beautiful wedding ever through Greg's lense.
Greg made us feel so comfortable during our engagement photos. He turned the photos around within 8 hours and produced the most amazing pictures we'd ever seen of ourselves.
Greg had a plan to photograph my autistic/bipolar brother. Knowing that Greg is incredibly patient and has experience with photographing autistic people squeezed my heart. Greg relieved me of so much stress.
On my wedding day, Greg arrived on time with his strikingly beautiful wife, Jennifer, and his fantastic assistant, Courtney. Even my bridesmaids loved him. I witnessed the amazing collaboration of Greg and Jennifer, along with Courtney.
Jennifer was so organized and taking pictures with a very large family was seemless and fun. Watching Greg do acrobatic feets to capture a 2 year old ring bearer and a 3 year old flower girl, while keeping the camera steady and focused was very impressive. The places that G and J scouted out at the venue were perfect.
The very next day, we saw a glimpe of what was captured. The happiest day of Steve's and my life was evident in these pictures.
Thank you Greg for EVERYTHING! Steve and I think the world of you!

Met Greg at the San Diego Bridal Bazaar down at the convention center, and he is the reason went there. My then-fiancee was looking at photographers that were going to be there and got instantly drawn into this pictures and the storytelling. He has a great personality ad our sense of funny. Our engagement photo shoot, the wedding day, everything was great and easy. Didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to our photographs. Jennifer was there to keep everything organized and tended to every detail in the photographs. Greg and Jennifer make one great team you would want with you for your wedding. Naomi was our second photographer on the day of our wedding and she did an amazing job as well. We received few great shots immediately to share with our friends and family and the rest was delivered in perfect time right before Christmas. We will enjoy our photographs years to come and can't thank Greg's Photography enough! Great people, great work, have nothing but good things to say about them.

I cannot say enough good things about Greg & Jennifer. For starters, they are the cutest couple EVER!!! My husband, Nick, and I met Greg at a bridal expo in Del Mar awhile back, and we all instantly clicked. Fast forward a few weeks later and we did two engagement photo shoots, one at Presidio Park and the other at the cove in La Jolla. I could not have been more pleased with the experience and the awesome photos.

This past weekend, Greg and Jennifer were back to shoot our wedding at The Darlington House - again, I am blown away with the quality of their work, professionalism, and overall amazing friendliness! G & J both make you feel like you are family and not a client. If you are considering hiring a photographer for an event, family photos, etc, I would highly recommend them, you will not regret it!

OH and don't let Greg be modest -- he is SUPER legit: travels the world, hangs out with famous people, loves surfing and yoga AND he has a ton of awards and accolades including an Emmy!!

We used him today for our engagement photo shoot! We had a blast. He was extremely professional and just over all great! We look forward to also using him for our wedding in August.

Greg is an amazing photographer! He truly captured the essence of my wedding day with his candid approach. His finished work is above and beyond what we expected. Our wedding pictures are beautiful with an artistic flare that is quite impressive. Greg scouted out our venue beforehand and found all of the great spots. He was open to all of the shots I wanted and worked closely with me to make sure everything was covered. He has a charming personality and totally made me relaxed on my wedding day. BRIDES...you can't go wrong with Greg! I will recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. His fiance' and sidekick Jennifer, was wonderful to work with also. Thanks Greg!

Greg and his team are AWESOME!! I probably put more effort into picking my wedding photographer more than any other vendor--I figure you spend hours with them on your wedding day and they have the responsibility of capturing all you memories. I am so happy I went with Greg! His professionalism and great attitude kept me and my husband smiling the entire night! We had a mixed cultural wedding and Greg was so very respectful of our guests and our traditions. He was able to go with the flow which is so important at big functions where not everything goes as planned. I LOVE my wedding photos ... and I especially love that he got me my photos WITH art director edits (both online and on a DVD) in just 2 weeks after the wedding. The pictures are crisp, modern, and fun!! He really knows what he's doing!! There are some formal classic wedding shots and some with a great artistic twist. I am thrilled with Greg and his team and would recommend them for anyone's big day or any function!

His albums are a bit pricey, but he is totally willing to work with you on the cost and they are top notch in quality and style so well worth it

This is one of the few times I wish there were more stars to vote. Greg is by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding vendors. Words cannot explain how fun, professional, and creative he was. He had some great ideas and was open to our ideas as well. Both our goofy and serious pictures turned out great. He really has a gift for getting the best, most insightful angles. We get compliments from all our guests about how wonderful our pictures are. Since our wedding pictures will last for a lifetime, we can't imagine having anyone else as our photographer. We have recommended Greg to everyone we know and will continue support Greg's Photography as long as they are around!
