Lin and Jirsa Wedding Photography is composed of three master wedding photographers, Pye Jirsa, Justin Lin and Chris Lin. The three teamed up to create a Los Angeles and Orange County based wedding photography studio that encompassed their unique style of fashion and fine-art influenced wedding photojournalism, their high standards of quality and creativity, and their philosophy on client service. Three years ago, they brought on a group of Associate Photographers. Joseph Anthony, Matthew Saville, Timothy Kwon, Daniel Arevalo and Sarah Hurley. Our associates are highly trained in the Lin and Jirsa style. All our associates are required to deliver high quality images to match the master work.

All three master wedding photographers have professionally studied and trained under some of the world’s best wedding photographers. Throughout their wedding photography experience, in Southern California and abroad, Pye, Justin and Chris meticulously studied and developed a unique philosophy and framework for consistently creating emotional and moving imagery. We should also mention that between our three master wedding photographers we also speak Chinese/Mandarin, Cantonese and Taiwanese.

Lin and Jirsa Images are creative, clean and crisp. They’re romantic, fun, and emotional. The Lin and Jirsa team is critically acclaimed for developing a unique style of wedding photography that is deeply rooted in wedding photojournalism while influenced by fine-art and fashion photography. We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery. Read less

When we were deciding who to choose for a photographer Lin and Jirsa's photos kept popping up on our searches. When we met with Pye Jirsa he was so fun and easy going we knew we had found our photographer. From the engagement photoshoot to the wedding portraits Pye and his team couldn't have done any better. My husband is not the most comfortable in front of the camera but, Pye's laid back yet professional personality got my husband to loosen up and as a result our wedding photos were outstanding. They really understood our personality and let that shine through, the result are photos that are more beautiful than I can even remember the wedding being. Our guests continue to be impressed with the photos they've seen. Lin and Jirsa are a great value as well, they may initially come in higher than other photographers but, the fact that a lighting assistant is included in the pricing makes all the difference. The angles and light that were captured were unbelievable. At the end of the day you don't have to pay for extra editing or retouching because the way that they shoot the photos in the first place it is not needed. Thank you Pye for capturing our big day so well!

There are many packages and that may be a bit overwhelming at first but after you sit with their sales rep and she explains everything you can pick and choose what it is that you want. Don't feel pressured to stick the the package - do what you want it's your wedding.
If you are doing a wedding on a budget this vendor is not for you. They are very expensive and the photo books are extremely expensive. But you get what you pay for. In my eyes, I splurged on this category and it was worth it.
L&J have many photographers they work with, they will assign you to one or two based on your package, my suggestion is that you look at a handful of pictures and shots you like, ask who took the shot, and if there is a common trend then Request that photographer.
Our photographers were Matt and Maria and I thought their shots were the best.

Words cannot express how AMAZING Lin and Jirsa Photography is. I wish I could give them 10 stars! Their photos speak for themselves how talented they are and more importantly, how professional and wonderful they are to work with. My husband and I agreed how wedding photography was very important to us and really made sure we hired the best.

We first met with Justin Lin, one of the Master Photographers, and we all automatically clicked at our initial meeting. Not only were we looking for someone who was a great photographer, but we also wanted someone who would make us feel comfortable taking a ton of pictures. We walked out of our meeting and without a doubt knew we wanted to hire them. We met with other photographers, and although Lin & Jirsa may be a bit more on the higher end in terms of costs (compared to the other photographers we met with), they are worth every single penny.

We were so happy to work with Justin and the Lin & Jirsa team. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, we are in love with all our photos. Everyone was so friendly, professional, and great to work with. Our wedding was in San Diego with our ceremony at 11am. Justin and his team were there bright and early ready to work. We booked the 12-hour package and even though it was a long day and night, Justin was more than happy to stay a little bit longer to take a few more fun shots with our friends.

It was such a wonderful experience and we would definitely recommend Lin & Jirsa to everyone we know. We receive so many compliments from family and friends on how amazing our pictures are. Thank you Justin and the rest of the Lin & Jirsa team for capturing our lifetime memories!!

Our photographers, Joseph, Joe, and Dave were the best I could have ever asked for! They were so professional I never had to worry about a thing. They were crawling all over the place just to ensure that each shot was perfect. Our day would not have been as perfect had it not been for Lin & Jirsa! I would definitely recommend Lin & Jirsa for your wedding photography needs!

What can I add that everybody else haven't said on their reviews? One word sums up Lin & Jirsa Photography...WOW!

My wife and I just got married in September 2013 and Lin & Jirsa was our photographer of choice since the beginning. We found Lin & Jirsa by trying to find the wedding ceremony venue in the South Bay. The pictures that my wife and I saw were amazing on how they captured each frame with light, colors, scenery, and subjects.

Our main photographer was Joseph and he was professional, courteous, and artistic. We had our first session in March 2013 for our engagement photo shoot and we had a great time. Joseph guided and directed us to create "the moment" shots. As we shared our engagement photos with our friends and families, the common comments were "the photographs look great" And yes they did. Joseph was able to transform a dingy looking jetbridge into a "tunnel of love".

On our wedding day, we had a team of 3 photographers with Joseph leading the team. They were prompt and started immediately in capturing each memory. At the church, they were all positioned in the most optimal locations to record the ceremony and at the reception place they were integrated with the party to get the pictures.

We received the final pictures about 6 weeks after the wedding and the first word my wife and I said was "WOW!" Joseph and his team were artist in recreating the story of our wedding and the entire Lin & Jirsa production team enhanced the photos to make the story come to life. When our family friends, and acquaintances saw the final product, they were amazed with the quality of the photographs that Lin & Jirsa provided for my wife and I. Our cousin took our advise and hired Lin & Jirsa for their own wedding. We could not have asked for a wonderful, artistic team of photographers. We highly recommend Lin & Jirsa.

The services provided by Lin & JIrsa Photography are exceptional! Though they might sound a little pricey to some of you but it does worth every penny you spend on wedding photography! My husband and I decided to invest big on wedding photos since these are the most meaningful things to look at after many years. We have shopped and interviewed for more than five photographers, and L&J's photos impressed us the most! Justin Lin was our photographer and he is very approachable. When we met him the first time, he seemed more like a friend than anyone who's trying to sell you their products. We were very impressed with his shooting and post-production techniques, so we quickly decided to move forward with L&J for their photo and video package.

From choosing locations, shooting styles, dressing styles, to even props, L&J provides clear instructions and recommendations so we can easily follow along. Before our engagement session, Justin met with us to discuss the locations and shooting styles we would like so there wouldn't be surprises to have some shoots that we don't want. On our engagement shooting day, because of the hot weather my husband had hard time smiling. Thank goodness! Justin professionally guided him and was able to shoot his most natural smile. We also got some romantic shoots so we can proudly put on as facebook cover page and wallpaper background. After our engagement pictures came out, Justin also kindly asked for our feedback for which photos we like the most and the least so he could do a better job on our wedding day.

Before our wedding day, Justin met with us again to discuss the wedding timeline, details, and important VIPs that we want to shoot so they can coordinate with us and would not miss any detail. We did not hire a wedding planner but we were able to learn a lot from Justin's experience. On our wedding day, my family and my guests were impressed by the L&J team since there were a total of 6 team members showed up to shoot o

We knew that we wanted Lin & Jirsa to phtograph our wedding since we attended a friend's wedding several years back. In fact, they were the first vendor we called for availability and actually planned our date around them. We worked with Justin and he is simply the best! He sat with us for hours during our initial meeting and talked about cars, life, etc. He was in no rush to get us out and immediately felt like a long-time friend. Throughout the entire precess (meeting, engagement shoot, wedding, post production) Justin and his team have exceeded our expectations. We know of many people who didn't get their wedding photos for months after their wedding. We just got home from our honeymoon and we already have all of our beautiful photos! Now when I say beautiful, it's an understatement! The photos are perfect...everything we wanted and more! We have shared them with our family and friends and everyone keeps raving about how amazing they are. Justin and his team achieved a perfect blend of posed and candid shots, as well as classic and modern shots. They captured photos of everything, but were never imposing or in the way. Jackie and Maria are both awesome as well, and always respond to my emails quickly and in such a friendly manner. I can't say enough wonderful things about Lin & Jirsa and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! Thank you all so much!!!

INCREDIBLE!

I haven't even seen the final photos from our wedding, but from some sneak peeks during the shoots...we are CERTAIN we will be amazed.

These guys not only are the upper echelon of photographers (in terms of talent), they are just amazing people. It's clear from their website that they know what they're doing, and when you're actually the objects of the photo shoot, you understand that they are working magic through the lens. So easy to work with, so easy to talk to, so easy to love!

We want to get married more often just so we can have Lin and Jirsa again :)

The toughest and most important vendor to shop for us, was searching for the best photographer that met our budget, style, and willing to be flexible. We looked through several portfolios from various photographers and narrowed our choice down to Lin & Jirsa. We found that their work match perfectly with style we were looking for. Their photos are amazing- the colors were vivid and their lighting brilliant.

When we first met our lead photographer, Joseph, my husband and I found him very professional and comfortable to talk to. It was very easy to work with him and you can feel his enthusiasm for his work. We just recently received our wedding photos and all we can say is "Wow". They really did an exceptional job documenting our special day and making us look so good.

We feel very fortunate and lucky to have Joseph and the rest of the Lin & Jirsa team for our wedding. Our beautiful photographs will be cherished for many years to come, all thanks to Lin & Jirsa.

It would be impossible for me to say how ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC Lin & Jirsa are because our pictures turned out so incredibly beautifully, that there just aren't words. Pye Jirsa shot our engagement shoot and our wedding, and he is simply a master at his craft. He was so helpful and personable. He kept our families at ease, and had excellent ideas to make the day go smoothly.

We loved absolutely everything about Lin & Jirsa. They're expensive, but they're the best in the business and worth every single penny.

I am ridiculously satisfied with working with this studio! Our engagement pics were amazing, and I couldnt be happier with the friendliness and approachability of Lin and Jirsa. I would highly recommend them- they take a lot of pride in their work, and it is evident. I would recommend giving them enough time, so they can take some unique/fun shots. We were able to squeeze in two hours on the day of our reception for these shots, and it made it feel way less rushed :) Book them early! They fill up fast :D

very professional and the complete crew (which literally consisted of 2 main photographer+2 assistants & 2 main videographers+ 2 assistants) arrived on time. The team is very stress free. Joseph had offered and we had skyped before the wedding in which he patiently answered all the questions. The team does a great job in capturing all of the requested shots and then some .... both photos and videos show the great taste and the creative vision of them. The cost seemed relatively high at the beginning, but with the service received, it was totally worth it.
they also provide you with the raw videos if you wish to have the unedited version as well.
their back up system is great. they are Mac users and of course one of the copies is on iCloud so even if their studio burns and you loose your copy, it will never be lost!

their back up system is great. they are Mac users and of course one of the copies is on iCloud so even if their studio burns and you loose your copy, it will never be lost! Read less

I felt like our photographer was very passive. On this day I needed him to take charge. I felt like he was more worried about the "cool photo shot" vs how we actually looked. Being that it was my first time, I didn't know what to expect. Next time, I would prefer to talk to the actually photographer and get a feel that we mesh. When we went to L&J we spoke with another guy the whole time, then we agreed to hire them and then they said another photographer would be shooting. I felt the assistant captured better "real' pictures than the "senior" photographer.

I hired Lin and Jirsa for my wedding in May and my engagement photos last November. Chris was the lead photographer that took care of me and my husband and he did an AMAZING job! He gave us great direction, made us feel comfortable, and created the most beautiful pictures. I am so pleased to have invested in photography with L&J - pictures are the one thing I will have forever and I couldn't be happier with how they come out. THANK YOU Chris and team!

We used Lin & Jirsa as our videographer for our wedding and were so glad we did! Tim did an AMAZING job capturing our special day in video and we were super impressed with the same day edit he did for us! Tim was really fun and easy to work with ... dont be fooled by his young age ... he is a true professional and is really good at what he does! They were on-time and worked well with our photographer throughout the entire day!

I'd say of all the wedding vendors, the photographer was the most important to me. I've looked through what seemed like hundreds of portfolios from different photographers online and Lin and Jirsa ranked among the top ten on my lists. They made all the brides and grooms look like movie stars and the weddings look very glamorous. The colors are so vivid, the lighting was always perfect. After meeting with Justin, one of the Master photographers, my husband and I were sold immediately. Besides being so fun and comfortable to talk to, you could really tell he's very passionate about what he does. I didn't want someone there capturing the best day of my life who felt like he was just doing a job, I wanted someone who truly loved what he did. I discovered later on during our engagement shoot that the three master photographers studied under John Solano, one of the world's best photographers who has shot many celebrity weddings, and boy did I feel lucky being a total US Weekly junkie that I am. That feeling was nothing compared to how I felt after I saw our wedding photos. The pictures were absolutely beautiful, and it truly did my wedding day justice. Check out their blog and you will see what I mean.

On the wedding day, Justin and our assistant photographer, Joseph Anthony, were perfect. It really felt like they were one of our friends at the wedding. They were so sweet, and funny and got along with everyone so well. Justin was a really proactive photographer, one minute he'd be taking pictures laying back down on the ground, and the next he'd be taking sniper photos behind a group of a people. There were times throughout the wedding where he'd visualize the perfect shot, completely set it all up, then would pull me my husband aside for a minute, so that he didn't take up that much of our time. What came out of those shots were just beautiful and we feel so lucky to have had him.

Can't wait to show my kids our wedding album one day!!

Absolutely beautiful shots from Chris for our our engagement shoot, all our friends were raving about them. We havent gotten the wedding pictures back yet but I am confident that they will be just as amazing. These guys were so great, flexible and willing to accommodate us, and on top of that, friendly and fun to work with. My husband and I are not great at posing, but Chris easily coached us through some shots and allowed us to become comfortable in front of the lens. They shoot digital as opposed to film, which means tons more pictures for you, and they have beautiful packages available for every budget. Extremely affordable for the quality, highly recommended.

Lin and Jirsa was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I are not picture people however they made the process so easy. We were able to adjust our package to fit our needs and they matched us with the perfect photographer. We were able to pick the schedule for the photographer and were able to adjust all of our needs. It was amazing and our pictures turned out great.

I can't express how thrilled I am with Lin and Jirsa! I went through 400+ websites (no joke), 3 interviews and 4 bridal shows to find the perfect photographers. I cried when we had to move the wedding from CA to OH because I didn't want to find a new photographer. They flew to OHIO in OCTOBER to photgraph our wedding. When you hire Justin, Max, Chris and the rest of the crew, you not only get absolutely stunning photos that capture every detail and emotion of your day, but you gain lifelong friends. I heard two things over and over after the wedding, "the interence was awesome" and "your photographers are awesome." Thank you Justin and Chris for the amazing engagement pictures. Thank you Justin and Max for bearing the cold day and capturing the best day of my life.

Justin, Chris, and Pye were professional, personable and easy to work with. We love their unique viewpoints, compositions (esp. use of color), and candid shots. We decided we wanted to use them after reviewing the pictures on their website (I think it is: www.LinandJirsa.com but not sure) and considering their cost. They coached us through various poses and set up the surroundings very nicely. I squealed when I saw the pictures! They came out beautifully. They were easy for us to access and purchase online. The wedding ended up starting later than we thought and they were very understanding and changed their schedules accordingly. Overall, we had a great experience with these guys and I would most definitely recommend them to my friends and colleagues.

Our photographer was very personal and charming with us. He flew out of California for our wedding. We had a Tuesday wedding, so he flew out on Monday to give us 2 hours of bridal and couple portraits the night before the wedding, and was even willing to do as much as we wanted to before we would have to go. Customer service was an all-star A PLUS. Even the next morning, he and his crew showed up at the wedding to take remarkable and memorable portraits from several perspectives and looking back lets me reflect and enjoy what I missed as a bride with her eyes on her groom. The event was rich and meaningful, and those important aspects were included in our portraits for us to cherish together throughout our lives. Our photographer Justin is worth more than every cent!

I was a little hesitant about using Chris and Pye at first, because my friends had a few other ideas for photographers, but I must say, they were AMAZING. Of course with every photographer you're going to get pretty great shots, especially if your husband is cute like mine =), but...what really made the experience enjoyable was that these two just have very great personalities. So, you feel alot more comfortable to have fun and it makes the pictures come out more natural. They also spend a lot of time in the beginning asking you what you want...and then they go beyond that and make suggestions..so you will get stuff you weren't even thinking of!
