Harvard photography is amazing! We worked closely with Jina to find the package that worked best for our wedding and budget. She is great and very prompt at returning emails. She is professional and kind and worked with our individual needs to make our wedding photos spectacular. With worked with Jason for both our engagement session and wedding and he is so talented. He is easy to work with and makes you feel so comfortable. We are beyond happy with our engagement photos, sign-in book, and wedding photos. We especially love that we received all of the rights to our photos so we can use them and print them as we wish. We recently ordered a wedding album and are waiting for it to be completed, but based on past work, we know it is going to be perfect. We would highly recommend working with Harvard Photography!

Harvard Photography exceeded our incredibly high expectations as our engagement and wedding photographer! As a couple that absolutely LOVES taking and looking at pictures (we oftentimes take up to 2000 pictures on vacation!), we do not have a single complaint about either our engagement or wedding photos.

For our engagement shoot, we only had one hour to shoot, but our photographer still somehow had time to shoot everything that was on his agenda and include all of our add-on ideas. I (the groom) have this terrible fake smile that seems to invade all our pictures – our photographer made us feel so comfortable, though, and my fake smile was nowhere to be seen! Our engagement photos turned out so beautifully, and the guest book album that Harvard made for us was gorgeous – we got so many comments from our guests that it was by far the most amazing guest book they had ever seen.

Our wedding photos could not have turned out better. We had 2 photographers who worked tirelessly and non-stop for 8 hours! They somehow captured every moment without being invasive or intrusive – we have no recollection of seeing them during the ceremony, yet they had some amazing up-close shots!

The first look shots were beautiful as were our post-ceremony shots. Again, like in our engagement shoot, there were almost no fake smiles – they did such a good job of making everyone feel comfortable and at home! They were also able to accommodate all our requests! The quality of the pictures was top-notch and was some of the best we’ve seen.

While many photographers do a great job during the ceremony, I have seen very few do such a good job with the reception. In many of the weddings that we’ve attended, it’s not uncommon to see photographers standing around during the reception and only take pictures of the wedding couple. Ours not only followed us around during the reception, but they also found the time to take pictures of our family and friends even when we were not around. It was clear tha

My husband and I initially met with Jina (who we absolutely loved) to go through some albums and pick out a photographer based on their work. We chose Jason's work and met with him a couple weeks before our engagement session. He actually suggested the place we go to based off of what we were describing for what we were looking for, and it turned out great! He was super fun and kept us laughing. He has a great eye and goes above and beyond to get great shots.

My husband hates having his picture taken but he went home extremely excited to see how the pictures came out and he actually had a great time!

At our wedding, the weather wasn't working in our favor and the pictures we wanted to take weren't going to happen. Jason stayed beyond his contracted time during the reception to take us to different places to get some other shots in different places to make up for the pictures we weren't able to get. It was completely his idea and we are so appreciative that he stayed with us to capture some beautiful night shots with city lights behind us.

I would highly recommend Harvard Photography. Jina is extremely accommodating and helpful, and I'm sure all her photographers are excellent. We were so grateful to have Jason as our photographer and his love for photography is apparent! We are excited to see our pictures from the wedding!!!

We met Harvard Photography at a wedding expo. We could not have been more impressed with Jina and the packages offered. They were flexible with what we wanted in the package and really catered to our needs. We had Lawrence for both our engagement and wedding photos. He was great! He paid attention to all details and had a wonderful eye for shots we never would have dreamed of capturing.

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!

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!
