Judy is an awesome presence at a wedding. She is great at posing couples that are uncomfortable with photography, but can make photos look natural and real (mostly by helping our couple be natural and real). She is happy and excited to capture moments, bringing a feminine charm and touch. She has mastered the art of directing family without appearing bitchy. Judy does family photography aside from weddings, so she has a connection with children and is great with posing small groups. She loves loves loves her new baby daughter Remy and adores her two kitty cats.



Gavin is artistic and also technical, but is a big nerd and dork. He is the experimenter and boundary-pusher, the mad wizard and the striving artist. He is an engineer in mind, an artist at heart, and a warm soul in person. He lives for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, target shooting, watching (or making) movies, coding, and doing anything artistic. The consummate professional, Gavin's the reason we've never lost a single image, delivered every wedding on time, and put out every fire that happens when shooting a wedding. He relishes in the small moments of life, enjoys a good scotch or IPA, and loves Judy and Remy more than a thousand breaths could ever whisper.



Judy and Gavin are yin and yang, Bonnie and Clyde, and sometimes Beavis and Butthead. It's seriously 1+1=3. We heavily discount our Judy+Gavin package because we love working together and we love the images we create together. Judy knew she wanted to marry Gavin when he accepted her for everything that she was. Gavin knew he wanted to marry Judy when he trusted her enough to put her name on the business account! Not many people can work, live, play, love, and grow together, so we feel blessed that we have that in our work, home, and hearts. Read less

Judy and Gavin are absolutely incredible!! We had come across a few of their photos on Pinterest and noticed the JG watermark on the photos which helped us find out who these incredible photographers were. Their photos are very unique and play off light which makes them stand out. We had emailed them and they got back to us immediately. Not only were they extremely responsive, they were very patient and kind as well. My soon to be husband is a firefighter who works days at a time. It just so happened that during the time of our inquiry with JG Photography he was picking up a lot of over time so it took a while for us to get back to them. They were extremely patient and pleasant to work with even before we had booked them!

A few of the photos I had come across from them I had informed them I was hoping to get done for our shoot, they were extremely honest and let us know that unfortunately some of the locations were on private property and they could not guarantee the photos would be possible. They let us know that we would definitely try to get them but wanted to let us know it may not be possible, I very much appreciated it and still loved their work and were lucky enough to have them do our engagement photos (we ended up getting the photos as well!). The day we booked our photos, it was going to rain, Judy and Gavin were very flexible with us and let us decided whether or not we wanted to shoot in the rain or reschedule but they advised it would be better to reschedule due to it creating colder conditions that may make us look uncomfortable in the photos. (we took their advice and rescheduled and couldn't be happier - it was a gorgeous day without rain)

Judy and Gavin were extremely friendly, professional, fun, and polite. They take their time and wait for the perfect shot, and when I say perfect, I do mean perfect! They captured all our wants and more! Thank you both very much! So long as their up for it, we will definitely be using them in the future! :)

And the absolutely best professional photography team goes to Judy and Gavin photography!! 10 stars!!

Words are not enough to express our gratitude to this amazing couple. They worked with us with patiently. My husband and I are very relieved to have them photograph our wedding. We had the honor of taking photos at our Cambodian Ceremony and Traditional Wedding the following day.

We hired Gavin + his assistant as part of our wedding package. Judy was amazing at promptly replying to our email and answered any questions we had thoroughly.

Our Cambodian Ceremony was at parents house and our beautiful wedding, 12/2016, was at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. Both of which Gavin arrived on-time ready to take photos. He engaged with us very well. Even after the events were over, many that attended had mentioned how much they enjoy getting their photos taken from Gavin!

My husband and I knew we made the best decision ever. He knew how to capture candids, intimate moments, and most importantly memorable shots. Shots that I didn't know if he got that were important, he was able to pull off more than what we even expected.

Gavin sent us the photos at good timing, too. The photos truly made us feel like we were happily there again. We can't stop looking at our brilliant and creative photos. The quality of our photos turned out breathtaking. You can tell that Gavin has long years of experience and it shows his talented skill.

They were very professional and organized! After having them be a part of our wedding, my husband and I will definitely keep them in mind for referrals and future events!

Thank you Judy and Gavin!! These photos will be in our lives forever and we can't wait to proudly share our wedding story with these beautiful photos to our loved ones.

If you are a bride/groom looking for a photographer, don't look anywhere else. After interviewing with many other photographers, go with your gut. They were always our #1 choice.

Judy and Gavin were nothing short of AMAZING! They helped us find the best locations and the best shots, poses, and lighting in all environments. They were very accomodating and easy to work with... it was just like hanging out with long time buddies from the start. The music video they made of the wedding is the most spectacular way to remember our wedding forever.

Judy and Gavin are awesome! We booked them for our July 2016 wedding after initially booking a different photographer for our big day. After we had our engagement session with the different photographer, we realized the quality of the photos and the professionalism of the photographers did not meet our expectations for what we wanted on our big day. Judy and Gavin did photo/video at my brother-in-law's wedding the year before ours. Since my husband and I were in the bridal party at that wedding, we were able to see Judy and Gavin and their team in action on their wedding day. The difference was night and day. Judy and Gavin are super personable and professional and made this aspect of wedding planning very low stress. They were able to redo our engagement session on relative short notice - this was around the time when Judy was about 8 months pregnant and wasn't working extensively in preparation for their baby, yet she still insisted on joining us through UCLA and Downtown LA to make sure everything turned out perfectly (which it did!). At the engagement session we realized how professionals work - efficiently and creatively, while making us feel comfortable. Back then we already knew we made the right choice to switch over. However, on our wedding day they solidified that feeling. Weddings are very stressful but they made sure everything on our wedding day went smoothly. We had a large bridal party of 22 people and my husband and I both have large families, but Judy was able to help plan the day's timeline and most importantly she was very vocal in executing it. They were personable with our wedding party and made sure to direct people as needed. We were able to get all of the footage we wanted and it all turned out great!

Judy and Gavin will go to great lengths to capture the perfect picture. Weather from lying down on the floor, kneeling down on both knees, Judy and Gavin will do just about anything to get the perfect angle. Their photography and editing skills are outstanding. After our engagement shoot, my husband and I were confident they would do a great job during the day of the wedding. We were actually surprised how good the pictures came through. There is no doubt in our minds that Judy and Gavin will provide amazing quality shots. They will make anything, any scene, and any prop look amazing.

Judy and Gavin captured our wedding day more perfectly than we ever could have imagined. Having to select a photographer across state lines, the only thing we could rely on in making our decision was their website, our conversations over the phone, and their professionalism and responsiveness. I am happy to say that Judy and Gavin Photography more than exceeded our expectations. They are incredibly talented, accommodating, professional, helpful, responsive, friendly, and funny. Once we met them in person, they quickly confirmed we made the right choice in selecting them to be our wedding photographers. They are so easy to work with and made us both feel very comfortable throughout the entire day! In fact, we actually had FUN taking our pictures!

We requested photos in Santa Monica and also Downtown Los Angeles. Not only did they happily oblige our request, but they are very familiar with both areas and knew all of the perfect spots for amazing photos. They have such a great eye for beautiful shots! We love that our photos do not look staged, fake, or cliché. They photographed such lovely images that truly capture the beauty of our surroundings and the excitement and romance of our wedding day. Both Judy and Gavin are completely dedicated to getting the perfect picture – even lying down on the dirty streets of L.A. and wading into the ocean and fountain to get the right angle and shot!

We are elated with the photos and everyone that has seen our pictures tell us how beautiful they are and what amazing photographers we had! We concur!

Judy and Gavin’s kindness, patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye are all deeply appreciated as the photo memories of our wedding day will be treasured forever. Thank you SO much Judy and Gavin for doing such wonderful things with our cherished day and for creating such great photographic memories! We appreciate you!

These two wonderful human beings were our photographers for our wedding last August. My husband and I found them here online and fell in LOVE with their photos. We met them and knew that they were the perfect fit. They are laid back (but can crack the whip if needed), HILARIOUS, generous, and obviously extremely talented. In their presence I always felt beautiful, encouraged and truly like their friend. For a bride that is stressed about all the little things that a wedding brings, it was so amazing to have two awesome people around.

During our wedding these two became apart of the family, and still to this day (almost a year later), every one of my family members asks how they are doing and/or still compliment our photos (my mom says hi J+G). Our pictures turned out phenomenal. I wish I could continue to rave about them and their amazingly perfect photos, but just know that if you choose them as your photographers not only will you walk away with two more friends, you will have thousands of clips and moments from your big day that are literally priceless.
