Jeff and Betsy of La Vida Creations did a fantastic job with our outdoor small wedding, including a last minute relocation from beach to Balboa Park due to rain. During the ceremony they were invisible, but now we have many wonderful shots of us, and our families. After, we had the group photos and family photos, then done just before the heavy rain. Our wedding album is on super heavy paper, the images crisp and well laid out, All in all, we couldn't be happier, and recommend La Vida Creations Photography to all.

Just got our wedding album and...wow! It's so nice. Perfectly captured our day. We have great photos of the ceremony, both families, and of us with the kids. The album flows, the photo quality is excellent, the materials used are top-notch, it's just great. Jeff and Betsy were both there, taking photos in tandem, obviously each with a different objective, as they had different angles, lenses, etc. This resulted in a broad range of photos, close-ups, farther afield, and so on. We are extremely satisfied with our photos and with the service La Vida provided. They were very easy and professional to work with. Highly recommended.

Jeff and Betsy are hands-down amazing! We were about to contract with another photographer, when we stumbled upon La Vida at the last minute and I had to have them if we could. They were able to squeeze us into their schedule. With just a couple months out before the wedding they were even able to include an engagement session for us. These two are so genuine and made both of us nerds feel so comfortable and relaxed. We couldn’t have gotten more beautiful photos. On the wedding day I was so sick, but they were so accommodating and comforting that it really took the edge off. We had to change venues day-of too, and they rocked it. Gorgeous pictures. They’ve got amazing gear, and are prepared for anything. Betsy even hooked my mom up with some industrial tape to put together the pearl necklace that broke as she was trying to put it around my neck. Serious professionals and worth every penny! Couldn’t have gotten any luckier with these two! We’re going to treasure these pictures forever.

Amazing! Words cannot express the emotion we felt when we saw the images Betsy and Jeff captured during our intimate elopement. It was as though they traveled back with us through our 22 year relationship and captured every significant moment. They made us feel very comfortable and are just genuine people. These storytellers have a skill set that surpasses all others!

Jeff and Betsy are TRULY professionals - fun and talented ones, to boot! We booked them as our wedding photographers back about a year and a half ago and have never regretted it for a single second. We first bonded over our love of the chow/lab mix as we both have fur babies of that variety ourselves, and instantly felt at ease and comfortable with them. This continued throughout their work with us. Their photography is truly the most beautiful - it captures true moments, not STAGED feeling, and reflect your most intimate, candid moments you want to remember. They caught beautiful photos of our old dog during our engagement photos, and we just saw all the pictures that came out of our wedding earlier this month. GOR-GEOUS! If you want to have fun and be yourselves while they capture outstanding moments you will treasure forever, please book them. Book them now!

All we can say is WOW! La Vida Creations Photography blew our mind from day one. We have never felt so at ease with a photographer as we did with Betsy and Jeff. They made it a point, from the first time we met, to be courteous, respectful, and excited about our wedding. We NEVER felt like we were “just another client”. They consistently made us feel as if we were their only clients (which we weren’t) but it really gave us the sense that they were invested in us as a couple, and clients second. Their service and product speaks for itself. They were adamant that they wanted to really capture us, and they did that by getting to know us and understand us. They captured the moments of our wedding beautifully. Their attention to detail is impeccable. They also interacted with our families and were nothing short of perfect. We have been beyond impressed with their work ethic and we are still hearing about how “fun” the photographers were from our guests. We will forever be grateful for them and their talent. Needless to say, they are now our family photographers, as well as THE photographers that we will use for any other event. They blew away our expectations and we cannot EVER see ourselves having photography done anywhere else.

Betsy and Jeff of La Vida Creations Photography are extremely skilled and professional. We do not like having our photos taken, but we wanted to capture the natural joy of the occasion. They captured us in a very natural way and made us feel very comfortable. It was actually fun to be photographed by them. The quality of their work is excellent, and they have a very warm manner with their customers. We love our wedding photos.

We are so lucky we chose La Vida Creations to tell our wedding story in photographs! In planning our small three-guest elopement to Coronado Beach from Indiana, we hesitated about hiring a professional photographer. Posing for photographs is so not us, and we also feared a photographer and a clicking camera would intrude on the intimate ceremony we wanted. But we could not have made a better choice than to ask Betsy and Jeff to memorialize our wedding day with their amazing work. Once they placed footprints in the sand for us and our officiant (the remarkable Bethel Nathan of Ceremonies by Bethel), they knew instinctively how to be inconspicuous during our very private ceremony and yet capture candid, natural images we'll always treasure. And then during our after-the-ceremony photos as the sun set, we quickly learned we would have loved to get to know them better. Betsy and Jeff have such a great bond and are so easy to connect with they just plain forced us to leave our camera-shy natures behind and have great fun with them on the beach. As a result, WOW, what beautiful and meaningful photos we received (not to mention a heart-stirring blog on the La Vida website that left us all teary-eyed back here in cold and snowy Indiana). Betsy and Jeff see themselves as storytellers, and with good reason. Because no words can ever adequately express the significance and emotions of our wedding, we are so fortunate to have our La Vida Creations images - images that truly do capture the moments and joy of that day more meaningfully than we could have ever anticipated. Thank you, Betsy and Jeff!
