Neil was incredibly easy to work with. His laid back manner allowed for a relaxing wedding day. He was organized and efficient so it didn't leave guests waiting for hours and hours for the couple to return. Even with the big family photos, he was quick and made it easy on everyone plus he was able to capture the moments. His team of photographers were discreet however was there when you needed them.
His scheduling of the engagement photos was flexible - he waited for the perfect weather and wasn't afraid to put his schedule aside to capture the "perfect" sunset. We were so grateful we waited as we had a great outcome!
As for the follow-up, he has never rushed us on getting our albums done in a particular time period. It was always on our time which was nice. We just received our album (since I procrastinated so long) and we are so happy with our decision to go with Neil. Thanks Neil!

Neil was very flexible with mine and my husband's needs. He did an amazing job on our engagement photos, so we had no doubt that he would do a great job on our wedding day. He called me the week before our wedding to check in and make sure he had all of the information he needed and to ask if I had any questions or concerns. He has a unique style that we just loved! He has such a calming demeanor which I really appreciated on our wedding day. I highly recommend Neil for photography and videography. He's flexible, smart, talented, professional and calm. Everything a bride could ask for on her wedding day.

My husband & I were on an extreme budget & were having difficulty finding anyone who would work with us on pricing.

Luckily Neil was there to help us out. He connected us with his assistant, Tina Saso who is very friendly & a competent & creative photographer. We could not have asked for better results!

Neil was terrific! He was one of several photographers we contacted, but the only one that was willing to work with our budget. Our wedding photos are perfect! He was very personable, flexible, fun, creative and talented! We can't imagine it turning out any better. Thank you Neil!

My husband and I were recently married in Santa Cruz in July 2010. I was born and raised in Santa Cruz, so it was a clear choice for the location of my wedding. The challenge was that I'm a current Southern California resident....so I was planning my wedding as a destination wedding of sorts. My SC friends were full of recommendations when it came to wedding planning. Neil was a recommendation from a friend of mine who also used him for her wedding a few years earlier. After seeing his work, it was the obvious choice for us.

To get straight to the point....we could not have been happier. Neil and crew were amazing. Super laid back and easy going....which helped my husband and I to really be able to enjoy our day. Took beautiful pictures, extremely professional and easy to work with. I would give him my highest recommendation. We have received nothing but amazing compliments about our wedding pictures.

My sister who was married a year earlier in SC even wants to use to Neil to make a wedding album for her and the prints she has from her wedding.

Neil Simmons Photography was a pleasure to work with...and clearly the best choice to our wedding!!

Both my husband and I were extremely satisfied with choosing Neil Simmons Photography for our wedding. The entire process was straight forward, Neil was very accommodating and responsive to our wishes and there was no pressure involved, which is a welcome relief during the wedding-planning process. The photographer that was available for our day, Vincent, was very un-obtrusive, professional and got a lot of candids of our guests that we were very pleased he had covered. We were totally thrilled when our prints and album came in--they were gorgeous and high-quality. Our friends went with Neil for their wedding and were also thrilled with his work. Support local Santa Cruz businesses and go with Neil--he's the best!!
