Amazing work! The photographer got so many great photos that a second photographer would be completely superfluous! He knew exactly what he was doing and their post-processing was well done and we got our photos back in only a month! I can't wait to order our album from them!

John and Janelle were the photographers for our event. WE LOVED THEM! They captured every detail and we barely knew they were there!

We met with Jina to review packages and pricing and she was very flexible with accommodating our needs! They were also kind enough to send us a few sneak peek photos the week after our wedding so that we could add them to the 'Thank You' notes and send them in a timely matter. We are so excited to see the flush mount album that we added!! Thank you Harvard Photography!

"A memory is only as good as the photographs” Jose is super fun / professional / talented / awesome / patient / passionate / enthusiastic. My family and I enjoyed his company and there was no awkwardness when taking photos. He accomodated all of our request and had an extremely positive attitude. Time just flew by with Alex.

I can only think of 3 words to explain what John did for us, "wow," Wow," and WOW!" My best girlfriend had chosen Harvard Photography for her wedding, and the pictures were stunning. Which is why I went with them for our wedding at Coyote Hills Golf Course, Fullerton in November 2013. I was planning the wedding from Northern California and Jina did anything and everything to accommodate my needs, wants, and visions for the special day. She was so professional and responded to emails so quickly and efficiently. She made planning so easy for a not-so-easy situation. John arrived early and went out of his way to create the perfect picture with every shot. The photos are breathtaking and I could not be more satisfied with the service. There were so many guests from out of town and now we have a way to see them everyday, and even better, when they are at their happiest. I would recommend Harvard Photography to any bride or anyone who needs a photographer for an event. John and Jina are the best and are true artists of their craft. Thank you so much!

Harvard Photography did both my Engagement Photo Shoot and my Wedding Photos. So far (having received my engagement photo) I am extremely pleased. Our Photographers (Jose [engagement] and John [wedding]) were both very professional, attentive, and friendly. The staff at Harvard Photography is very prompt to respond to phone calls, emails, text. Any question/concern I had, was answered promptly. My engagement photo was beautiful and I strongly believe my wedding photos will be just as beautiful and awesome.

I looked for a wedding photographer for several weeks. I must have looked at 100 different websites and met with at least 5 different photographers and ultimately decided on Harvard Photography. Boy am I glad I did! They are extremely professional- give you everything as promised and on time. Gina was very patient with us and helped figure out a package that worked with our budget. We selected Jose as our photographer and couldn't be happier. Our engagement pictures came out amazing! He really worked hard to get great pictures and was sweating the whole time. Come wedding day, he arrived on time with an assistant. His pictures are breathtaking! Everyone has told me they look like they are from a bridal magazine. The assistant also snagged some good photos. My only little tif which is not worth me deducting a star is that he was to passionate about the photos he often forgot there was a videographer also trying to get the shot. I am 100% satisfied and so happy I chose Harvard.

I found Harvard Photography at one of the Bridal Shows I attended. I loved the photos we saw so we made an appointment at their studio and decided to go with them. John did a great job with our engagement photos at Irvine Regional Park. Our photographers on the day of the wedding was Nick and Nathan, they were so much fun to work with. They took photos of everything we requested and captured some amazing moments!

Harvard Photography tremendously exceeded our expectations on our wedding day. They were responsive to all of our questions leading up to "the big day" and made us feel comfortable and stress-free. Jose's personality was perfect for our wedding party and for us, but his photography skills are above anything we could have dreamed of. We HIGHLY recommend Harvard Photography to any couple seeking the VERY BEST for their wedding.

My Harvard photographer, Jason, did an amazing job in capturing every moment of my special day. It's true when people say that your wedding day goes by so fast so it's extremely important to get good pictures and/or video to help take you back to that special day and re-live those moments you may or may not have missed. Harvard photography did just that! I was able to re-live that day through the photographs. From all the vendors I interviewed, Harvard Photography had the BEST customer service and the work is top notch.

I am so happy with the professionalism and product from Harvard. They connected me with the perfect photographer, Jason, who really listened to us as a couple and gave us great pictures that really capture us as a couple. Our engagement session was so fun and the pictures are wonderful. I got married in a Catholic Church and they said that my photographers were so respectful to the ceremony as well. Jason has been amazing and really knows how to make you look your best with the lighting and background. I can't wait to see our wedding photos!

I've seen Harvard photography at soo many bridal shows and loved their photography style. This company has sooo much experience doing weddings and it shows. the photographers were prompt and professional. I ended up with so much variety in pictures and could not be happier with them. It was a little strange to me that they picked a photographer for you and would reveal who your photographer is closer to the date(the company has several photographers.) However, i was told they all have similar styles. I had different photographers for my engagement session and wedding, but the pictures turned out fabulous. I did get a long canvas with my package that included 10 pictures. you pick the pictures but you can't pick the arrangment. Again, I didn't like that part at first...but the canvas with the pictures turned out beautiful and they would probably do a better arrangment than I. I couldn't be happier with the photos and would definitely recommend them to others.

I am very happy with the pictures that HArvard took for us. The only thing I could say that I should have paid more attention to is to have in mind who I want family pics with etc. This was NOT Harvards fault. They sent a list of pics to take etc but as a bride you might want to make a mental note or list of your own and hand it to your planner or relative of people to have around for the fam pics because I missed a few people that I really wanted. Anywho- HArvard was great, super responsive. We had to change our venue and date and they adapted and made it happen. They are super professional and I love all our pics. I have not gotten the book yet and I am working on getting them those pics ASAP so they can send it to me. The only thing that kinda sucks is that it doesn seem to take quite a while to get the albums back once you submit the pictures. I am going through the arduous process of sifting through thousands of great pics to pick for the book. I am a lil worried about the process of putting the book together, I hope they help with this part because once I choose the pictures I would like their artistic expertise to come into play to configure them as they see fit. I'll update when I get it but so far I LOVE HArvard :)

It was great working with harvard for our event. They did a great job on our engagement photos with Jose as our photographer. And we are sure our wedding photos will come out the same with Jason. We hand picked him because of his style and "urban outfitters" kind of feel. He gave just the right amount of instruction but also flexibility for us in guiding us during our photo sessions before, during and after the ceremony. We can't wait to see the photos!

Lawrance was awesome! We were concerned about getting a photographer just because we have been to other weddings where the photographers were creepy looking or just took horrible pictures but Lawrance was great. Our wedding party felt comfortable with him and he was on top of everything. Could not have asked for a better photographer. My only thing is if you do go to Harvard ask to speak to your photographer first before booking.

I was so happy with my photographer on the day of the wedding. Taiga wss the lead guy and was so amazing. Since I am not very comfortable in front of the camera, he did such a great job at putting me at ease and telling me exactly how to pose, smile, etc. He was EVERY where on the day of the wedding too. I know he did a phenomenal job at capturing every aspect of the big day. He got some beautiful shots of my husband and me after the ceremony as well. He is so easy going but was still able to get our crazy wedding party to listen and take fun shots. I can't wait to see our album when it comes in. I would recommend Harvard Photography to anyone!

We were very impressed with the level of quality of both our wedding and engagement pictures. The photographers were very professional, but very friendly. The photographer that we had for our engagement session was very funny and sweet and it helped us to relax while we were taking pictures and having people look at us funny (we went to downtown Pasadena)! We were very sad to hear that he had been booked for a different wedding the day of our wedding, but with as good as he was we were not surprised. All of the sadness went away when we met with the photographer who was doing our wedding. He was amazing and had so many ideas we couldn't wait! He was so nice and patient, he was an absolute pleasure to work with! I got compliments all night (and even still) about how nice the photographers were. They were everywhere we were that night and they got a lot of amazing shots! We are so happy that we went with Harvard and we wouldn't have changed a thing! They provided us with beautiful eternal memories and we are forever grateful!

I met Harvard Photography at the Bridal Show and booked an appointment with them one week later. They have their own studio for you to visit and also have different packages at reasonable price to fit your budget. After the meeting, we decided to book them for our wedding. Jose was our lead photographer. He was GREAT, high energetic, fun and very easy to work with. I just received the wedding pictures and Wowww…It's AMAZING. I could not believe how beautiful the picture turned out. It’s worth the money and I was very impressed with their quality and service.

Harvard Photography ROCKS!! I took my engagment pictures with them recently and had Jose as my photographer. Jose was amazing to work with. He was talented, friendly and has a great eye for capturing you and your mate having a special moment. The prices are VERY affordable for the services that they provide. My advice is to book early so you will have the time to carefully choose the photgrapher you would like to work with. Havard Photographer offers wonderful photo packages that will fit every bride and grooms budget. I am truly happy that we found a company that fits our budget and best of all provides BEAUTIFUL photos to be adored by all.

We were referred to Harvard from our reception site and we also saw them at the bridal shows. The girls at the bridal shows were very nice and helpful and set up a consultation for us at the studio. At first we were kind of hesitant because Harvard is basically a company that assigns photographers, but during our consultation we found out that we can look at photos from the photographers they had available and even meet with the photographer before we decide to book them. We chose Lawrence as our photographer for both the engagement session and the wedding. We haven’t seen the wedding photos yet because its still early (4-5 weeks), but we absolutely loved our engagement session photos. We posted all of them up on a mini slideshow next to our guest check-in at our reception site. Lawrence had really great ideas for the wedding photos and he was really good with the kids and the rest of the family, so we can’t wait to see them! =)

Our photographer, Jason, was absolutely amazing. My husband and I are not type of people who are used to taking pictures so having someone following us around is definitely different for us. As soon as we met Jason, he made us feel very comfortable. He has a great personality and is just so good at what he does. He even came to check in with us before he left to make sure he took all the photos we asked for. I can't express how lucky I feel to have booked him for our wedding day. Also, the staff at Harvard was very responsive and helpful. They answered all our questions in a timely manner. I totally fell in love with Harvard after seeing their sample photos. I just love creative and artsy photos.

John B. was our photographer for our wedding on August 1, 2010. He did a fantastic job with our photos! He took about 1,000 photos in 5 hours. There are so many beautiful photos that we both love that it is hard to choose only a few to frame! We had added a lot of personal touches and details to our wedding day and he was able to catch everything. He also did not miss any of the important and touching moments at our wedding ceremony and reception. We were very happy to note that he captured everything we wanted and more in such high quality and quantity. Our wedding photographer was the most important vendor to me. I had very high expectations. John B. did not disappoint me at all. We would both highly recommend him and Harvard Photography! We will forever cherish our wedding photos!

Harvard Photography was great to work with. They have excellent packages that are completely can be completely customized to fit your budget and needs. Based on the quality of their work and albums we expected that they would be way out of our budget, but they are definitely comparable to other photographers in the Orange County area. Robert was our engagement photographer and we were extremely happy with all the photos :)

We had two photographers on our wedding day and they were both very professional and easy to work with. Can't wait to see the photos!!

Harvard Photography was a joy to work with. Their customer service is beyond amazing. Debora and John are very responsiveness and super friendly. They were always available to answer the million questions we had.

They are very flexible when it comes to choosing your package. They can construct a special package to suit your special needs.

All their photographers were very professional and friendly. They controlled our 800 person wedding wonderfully. With a wedding this big, you are not able pay attention to all the details and hard work your decorator has put into in décor. Harvard captured every detail possible that I never noticed. Our pictures came out wonderful!

Harvard has been recommended to my family and friends and they were also just as happy as we were.

We chose Harvard photography for both our engagement and wedding photos. Our photographer was Jason. He was great. At the e-shoot, it was a little awkward at first but then we all got into a groove and the pictures turned out fantastic. On the day-of, Jason arrived early and took whatever pictures I wanted plus whatever his artistic eye captured. The images we received were great and we are in the progress of making our album.

Overall, Harvard was very easy to work with and provided great service.

John N was our photographer, and he was amazing! Everyone raved about him and our photos. He was very mellow & unobtrusive the day of the wedding, but provided great direction at the same time. I enjoyed working with Harvard Photography throughout and we were extremely pleased with the product. A++

We also ordered an album and that take a few months. I advise you to be aware of the delay in getting your album.

I actually booked them from out of the country and they were always super nice via email and over the phone. I had a million questions and the girls were always willing to help me out and answer all of my annoying questions. Nicest and most professional group I have ever worked with!

They are magnificient. Almost everyone that I know who has gotten married has used Harvard. They're pictures are just breathtaking. When we received our engagement pictures, we thought they were beautiful, but when we received one of the enlargements of our engagement pictures and it was retouched, I could not believe how beautiful the picture came out.

We recently received our wedding pictures on DVD and they are beautiful. Our photographer was Jose and he is really good at what he does. When he poses you for pictures, he does not make you feel uncomfortable at all. He has all kinds of great ideas which makes the pictures look really good. I highly recommend Harvard.

We met Harvard Photography at a Bridal Show and booked an appointment with them for a month or so later. I went into the appointment not thinking we’d book them, but it’d be worth just checking out. After our meeting with them (viewing photos and looking through their packages and talking about what vision we wanted for our wedding), we knew we wanted to book them for our wedding! Their packages include everything, but they’re flexible if you want to switch things out. They are very accommodating and respond quickly to emails and/or phone calls. A huge plus for them is that they give you a CD with all your photos (engagement and wedding) after your wedding. We were especially excited because they give you total creative freedom when creating your wedding photo book. Harvard also posts the wedding pictures online (not the engagement photos); however they post EVERY single picture. We were a little disappointed that even photos with funny faces or eyes shut were posted online, but I didn’t want to root through all 2500 of them to pick out those I wanted deleted (although, I’m sure they would have if I asked them). They have a number of photographers, but we booked Jose for the engagement photos since we were having a beach wedding and he was amazing! He even got into the water with us to capture the perfect photo. He was easy to work with and very energetic – we knew we could trust him to capture our wedding day perfectly. We were right, Jose (along with Jen, as a second photographer) captured our day perfectly. Our guests kept commenting on how many great photos he got and how he snapped pictures the ENTIRE evening. We were given our CD about 6 weeks after our wedding and it did include EVERY photo that was taken (even those with eyes shut). We have not received our book yet, but we did get a framed engagement picture and our wedding DVD slideshow. Both came out really good. I would definitely recommend them. Their services are great; they’re reliable and willing to work with you!

Harvard Photography was recommended to us by our venue and we are so happy we chose them as our photographer! From the beginning they lead us through the process and were able to work out the items that we wanted within our budget (parent albums for all of the parents). It was difficult to choose the pictures that were going in our album because we had so many great shots to choose from, but the albums came out excellent and we are very appreciative. Our photographers had exellent personalities and were able to work to get the shots we requested. They were professional, flexible, and easy to talk to whenever we had a question. We would definintely recommend Harvard Photography!

We had two photographers for our wedding and they were absolutely great. They took shots of what we asked and many clever candid shots. We didn't have as many as 2000 shots but only about half of that. We just got our proofs and are trying to choose our photos for the album but there are so many that we like that we're having a hard time narrowing down our choices. I would definitely recommend their services.

My whole experience with Harvard has been awesome. Everyone there is very professional and accommodating, and they are very responsive to my emails/calls. What I like as well about Harvard is they request you to fill out a list of the important moments you want the photographers capture. That way you don't miss any important moment. The photographer that we had was great! He actually arrived 10 minutes early because he realized that my dress is a laced-up kind and he wanted to make sure he have enough time to get all the get-ready shots. He was so nice to work with, and they make you very relax and comfortable around him. We took tons of fun shots, and I can't wait to see the results. Oh! The only negative thing I can think of is the turn around time is too long. It takes 4-5 weeks for them to process the pictures to show us the proofs! I can't wait, though! I'm sure it will be awesome and worth the wait. We had the same photographer when we shot our engagement shoot, and the pictures turned out amazing!

Anyway, out of all the photographers that we 'explored', Harvard offered the best quality and value for the money. Highly recommended :)

Our lead photographer Jose Zakany was absolutely amazing! he got there on time and was running around the whole time getting tons of great shots. The pictures from him came out great. The secondary photographer was pretty much a fly on the wall and we only got a few good shots from him. If we had two Joses I would give them a 5! The only other issue was the owner was not too happy that we wanted to adjust their normal schedule around to have myself and groom wait to see eachother until after the ceremony. So that just took some convincing.

Harvard Photography was amazing for my engagement photos and my wedding. I cannot speak for my wedding photos as I have not received them yet because my wedding was 9 days ago, however, I can say that I KNOW they will be beautiful based on the quality of my engagement photos. All my friends can't believe how beautiful they turned out. The staff is helpful and responds to email quickly. The photographers were professional and arrived on time. They are pricy, but you pay for the better quality which should be number one for any bride! This company is wonderful. I am so excited to see my wedding photos. Their work is amazing.

Harvard Photography was professional, reliable, and accomodating. John was able to help us put together a customized package at a great price to cover all of our photography needs for a three-day/two weekend Indian wedding. All three photographers we used were attentive and professional--each let us know when they were leaving to make sure we had captured everything we wanted. We loved our engagement photos, canvas wrap, and sign-in book! Can't wait to receive the wedding photos and albums!
