Elena and her team were simply amazing. The quality and overall experience was worth way more than what we paid for. She was a blessing to have at our wedding. Her skills seemed to highlight the emotion and passion in every single photograph. I have to say that when I have another event that requires a photographer I pray that Elena is still in business. If you are looking for a good photographer consider Elena and Magic Wedding Photo for your event because she is a God send.

I met Magic Wedding Photography & Video at a Bride Expo a few years back. I was nothing but pleased with their services. Elena, the photographer, was warm, understanding and very flexible. Not to mention affordable. I feel we got the best deal out there. My husband and I were suppose to get married in March of 2012 but in late 2011 we discovered our banquet hall went bankrupt! Deposits had been made, dates had been selected but we lost too much money. When I told Elena, she was very understanding and when we changed our date to November, she didn't charge us for any additional deposit, and the price didn't go up. We actually changed the date twice. She was always quick to respond to both emails and phone calls. Also, on the day of my wedding, she helped me with my gown. The back of my dress had one very long trail of buttons. My mom's arthritis was not allowing her to button me up, so Elena very kindly offered to do it. I recommend Magic Wedding Photography & Video to anyone who wants to have an easy, breezy photographer experience.

I made the best choice by choosing Elena for my wedding. I had called many photographers in LA and she gave me the best price! I only needed one hour photo& video and her price was 400. I was so happy with the way all of my pictures came out, They were so professional & nobody can beat that price! I also liked that I could call her whenever I had any questions and she always answered. She was always very polite & my family loved her. She is bilingual wich was a plus! (my mom & dad only speak spanish). I asked her how much it would be for 2 copies of the video and she said no charge! She also gave me a free 11x14 picture of my choice. Elena is truly a lovely person. THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER IN LOS ANGELES! I would definitely recommend her to everyone!

Elena and her team did a great job capturing our wedding day! She was extremely helpful and professional. I was running behind schedule, and in the time I was rushing to catch up, they captured many beautiful pictures (you would never imagine the slight chaos behind them). Now that our wedding day has passed, Elena has still been incredibly helpful and patient as she waits for us to choose our album pictures :)

I was soo surprised to get copies of my pictures within 2 weeks of the wedding. On top of that they are gorgeous. Elena really has a talent for taking beautiful pictures. I also loved the way that she altered the colors in some of the pictures. There were so many to choose from and there were so many good ones that it was really hard to choose.
Elena was always available through email or phone call. And she had no problem to adjusting to things that came up during the planning. So glad I went with Elena, when I look at the pictures I re-live that day and it makes me smile.

I cant wait to get the wedding proofs as I am sure they will be just as nice. I wish I could work with them again sometime, I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer and videographer, especially if you are looking for a great deal. Once again, Paola great job=)

Elena could not make it but sent 2 others photographers to attend my event. They were both very nice and professional and seemed to know their way around a camera; they even took suggestions and requests for types of pictures that I wanted to have. I will not have prints for a little bit, but I am really looking forward to seeing them.

After i had browsed several websites and received quotes on several different photographers she was the best. Elena came to my home showed me all her work and was absolutley amazed! It was hard for me to feel comfortable with any photographer they all seemed like they were in it "only" for my buisness. I just got married 08/07/2009 and she was on time, ready, and happy! She made me feel so beautiful, her daughter (which is also a professional photographer) came with her as an assitant and they were amazing. My husband had never met her prior to the wedding, i chose the photographer on my own since we were stressed and kept bumping heads about it. So, when he met her he was indeed very pleased. I called her today to check status on my photos and she is already working on them, honestly, i thought it would take longer. I would receommend her over and over. You will be pleased OH! and her prices are GREAT!!! she will work with your budget.

Elena was very professional and very flexible with my schedule. She was willing to meet me near my job so that I can view her work. She was a trooper when it came to driving from her location to the ceremony site, park and to the reception site. She allowed do certain poses we wanted and we felt really comfortable with her. We felt comfortable to be able to goof off and she took some great snaps of those funny moments. My husband was anti-photographer and she made him feel very comfortable. We are very happy with our pictures. Her turnaround time was remarkable compared to other friends and relatives experiences with their photographers. Our main album looks very classy, all around her fees were well worth every penny!

Elena was great my wife was sick and had lost her voice on our wedding day, but Elena made it so easy for her to get through the hardest part of the wedding which is usually the pictures. She was very professional and showed up on time and most importantly took wonderful pictures. All of our pictures turned out great and our wedding album was fantastic.

When my husband and I began looking for wedding photographers, we couldn't BELIEVE the average cost! And yet when my husband said he'd found a much cheaper option, I was skeptical. We met with Elena and Kendra (our photographer) and saw some of their work, and we were impressed. Kendra did a fabulous job, and I am SO PLEASED with these gorgeous pictures. I can't tell you how many people have commmented on facebook about the wonderful photography. I am so pleased!

Elena was such a pleasure to work with from the time I contacted her for my daughter's wedding until the final photo albums were delivered. Elena had to travel to three different locations on the wedding day and worked a very long day, but you would never hear her complain. She did a great job with taking all the right pictures and being in the right place at the right time. The pictures turned out great. The turn around time was so fast. It took us longer to decide on what pictures to have in our albums then the albums to be delivered. I would recommend her services to everyone that has a very special event planned.
Thank you Elena!

She’s very accommodating, and will work with you and your budget. My husband and I could not be any happier with the work she did for us. Words cannot express how wonderful she is. I’m so grateful we choose her to be part of our special day.

Elena Parsons did an amazing job on my wedding photography, and I've been getting compliments from everyone who sees my album! She did some traditional posed shots, as well as some more casual, relaxed, yet still stunning shots. I almost cried when I saw her pictures!

I would definitely recommend Elena Parsons to ANYONE who is looking for an experienced photographer with an eye for details. She is definitely not an amateur, whose shots have a 50/50 chance of having a thumb over the lens. She's a complete professional in every way, with an amazing sense of artistry for producing beautiful stunning shots. I'm so glad I found her!

Elena was great before the wedding, however it has been 13 months since our wedding and we have not gotten a video or a full refund. A few weeks ago she offered to refund a lump sum of HALF! Seriously, half!?! She also offered payments for 16 months. I asked her to send what she had and send the rest within a few months. She said it was either the Lump sum or a payment plan. I told her neither, I want a FULL refund ASAP. She said she could not do it. Here I am, preparing to take her to small claims.

Hi Jessica
So sorry about this whole thing, it really breaks my heart that I am unable to provide you with the video. You know I was a victim of a scam with this video company I hired last year. About the time of your wedding I was using Tom Tampus video services due to a pregnancy of my partner videographer. He took payments for about 8 weddings, went to work but never delivered the videos. I sued him but up until now, he is nowhere to be found and even though I won the suit due to his absence, I have recovered zero money from him. This whole ordeal of the suit took some time and I have been speaking to you about the whole process, I even invited you to the court, etc. Not that you have to be there but to make you aware of what was going on, always being transparent. I spoke to you on February this year and you agreed then to wait to June to start receiving payments, I have your email confirming it. Recently (June) I offered you a lump sum due to the fact that I -from my own pocket- have to pay you and other 7 people and I am trying to do the best I can for all under the circumstances, business is slow and I have a personal financial challenging situation. I am still hoping you can reconsider to take either one of my offers instead of creating a lawsuit since at the end I think when the judge sees all of this he or she -I don't really know but my little experience tells me- will urge you to reconsider payments, there is nothing of value I own -except for my photo equipment- and without it couldn't make a living. Please think about all this, thank you.

While the meetings up until our wedding day went well, were productive, and we seemed to be on the same page. We were disappointed the day of: main photographer was hurt and left right after our ceremony, she failed to instruct us on how to pose/stand, did not "arrange" my train for any pictures, and there was a highlighted "exit" sign over my head in MANY of the church pictures. Next, the alternate main photographer was late to our reception site and missed ALL of our wedding party and bride & groom pics!
We were not pleased with the quality of the pictures: sunlight is shining in our faces in many of the outdoor pics.
However, we LOVED Jill!!!! She was professional and took elegant pictures that really captured great moments!!! I would work with Jill again!!!

Kari
First of all I thank you for for your comments, they are giving me the opportunity to strive to give and better my services. I take the responsibility of being the one that captures these really important moments of your life very seriously.
I created a gallery for people to see some of your wedding pictures so they can judge for themselves on the quality of the work I did for you, they can see it at; www.magicweddingphoto.com > weddings >. Kari and Nick. (right lower corner)
Your complaints:
1. I did not help to fix your train.
A: I did! and you can see it in the photos I took and in the video as well that in spite of having a bad back I was still trying to do my best for you.
2. MANY pictures with the sign exi on them
A; I counted the pix with the sign exit and they are 9 or 10 out of a total of 645. I apologize, it is so easy to fix in photoshop, if you'd mentioned I'd have fix them for you ( I still can).
3. The other photographer arrived late.
A; Unfortunately, you forgot to update us on your schedule. We filled an itinerary form when you signed but not relying only on that, I emailed you a week before your wedding asking for update, no response. I called you the day before asking for an update, no response I assumed your itinerary was good and there is no mention of a pool side photo session, the photographer arrived at 7pm according to the agreement to start at your reception, besides you were never without a photographer, Jillian was there to take these pictures
4. Not having direction on how to pose and having shots with the sun on your face.
A; First I have to say not all the shots have this problem only a few within the 15 minutes pool session that Jillian did for you and it was her who didn't give you directions in how to pose and shot you against the sun but you say she was a professional that took elegant pictures that really captured great moments?, isn't this a big contradiction?

All and all I thank you again for the opportunity to have been of service.to you.
Elena
