I spent hours looking for a photographer. I wanted someone that was affordable, loved their job and was good at it. Enter Chana. I went to the bridal bazaar and gotten one of her cards. Out of all of the photographers I contacted she was one of the first to get back to me and happily answer any and all questions I had. Even panicky bride emails. She had the best options and packages. On the wedding day she called me and told me she was there. She instantly got to work. She is AMAZING. She will happily take any shot you want and arrange some awesome ones as well. I could tell when she got a good one, because she would make a little excited noise. We had Bethel Nathan as our officiant and Bethel got excited when we told her who we had chosen as our photographer. When someone in the industry genuinely likes another "vendor" that seems to be a good sign. Our pictures came out jaw droppingly beautiful. She gets them back to you as soon as possible and gives you a sneak peak on facebook. She is fantastic to work with and really loves what she does. Chana is a breeze to work with and will capture your day brilliantly.

Chana and Don were incredible during our recent wedding in San Diego. They were on time, and stayed precisely on schedule. We wanted all of our pictures before the ceremony, and they made sure we were able to accomplish this with time to spare. They were extremely efficient and encouraging, which was important for my husband who hates taking photos. At the same time, the photos turned out beautifully. There were many moments that I didn't know they had captured. The photos clearly reflected the venue, our style, and the mood of the event. We received our photos extremely quickly. They posted many photos on Facebook the day after the wedding, and we received all the photos online within 2 weeks. Every photo was gorgeous and I barely noticed them throughout the ceremony or the reception which allowed for beautiful and natural photos.

I highly recommend Chana and Don!

Chana And Don did great with the photos. Was very pleased with their work. They were very flexible with a price for a Monday wedding. The fact that they give the rights of their photos to you is awesome.

Chana and Don were AMAZING! They are both so friendly, flexible and extremely talented. I am so happy I chose them as my wedding photographers. I would highly recommend them, with out any reservations. Chana was always very responsive with emails and phone calls. They gave an awesome timeline of when we would take photos and had plenty of time to spare before the ceremony. I highly recommend having two photographers. Don was with my husband to take pictures with the groomsmen and Chana was with me and my bridesmaids as we were getting ready. During the ceremony, 1 photographer was at the front of the ceremony and another photographer was at the back, that way we had multiple angles. Everyone commented on how nice our photographers were and how great our picture looked. Pictures were back in 2 weeks and I could not have asked for anything more!

Our officiant, Bethel Nathan, recommended Chana and Don to us, and we met them at the Bridal Bazaar.  Their fun loving and genuine personalities, in addition to their gorgeous pictures, immediately attracted us to them.  For us, it was important to not only have beautiful pictures that will last a lifetime, but also to have photographers that we could connect with and be comfortable with.  Your photographers are one of the few people who are with you throughout the entire wedding day and they are part of some of your most intimate moments.  If they make you feel uncomfortable or that you can’t be yourself, the pictures will suffer.  Given this, Chana and Don were perfect for us.  They are so much fun to be around, are truly great people, and we were so happy to have them be part of our big day. They took both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures and did an amazing job.  Throughout both of our photo sessions with them, they felt more like good friends who happened to be taking our photos and not just someone who was working. 
In both instances they went above and beyond the call of duty to capture our special moments  For example, our engagement photos involved train tracks and walking through the waves in the ocean.  Not only were they dodging trains (we literally had to run off the tracks to avoid being hit at one point), but they got into the Pacific Ocean on a cold day to capture some amazing moments of us splashing in the waves.  Similarly, at the wedding they were both lying on the ground and doing whatever was necessary to capture the moment.  They are troopers and they worked tirelessly to capture every detail, and the quality of their work shows that.  We highly recommend them and honestly cannot imagine anyone not getting along well with them or being unsatisfied.  Another thing we noticed about them, is that a lot of their customers are repeat customers and that they will photograph a couple from engagement, to wedding, to children.

Chana and Don are amazing and make such a wonderful team!! They are both so much fun and casual but energetic, makes you feel like you have known them all your life! Both our engagement and wedding pictures are beyond words beautiful. We find ourselves looking at our wedding pictures a lot, and every time we are able to relive the day. Everyone has complimented on the photos and some say they look like magazine pictures!! We are forever grateful to them both for capturing our special day in such a beautiful way, photography was very important for us and they did not disappoint.

They were the first vendors we booked, and the only one of the hundreds of vendors at the Bridal Bazaar that stood out to me. As soon as I met them there and saw their work, I texted my husband and told him. They’ve been working together as a pair for ages, and it shows. They’re casual and really focus on telling a story through candids. Of course there are the requisite posed group photos, too. Included in all their packages are 2 photographers, 4x6 proofs, and the digital hi-res copies (on DVD) of all the photos with no watermarks. This means you can do whatever you want with the photos. But if you decide to order prints/albums with them (and I recommend you do), their prices are very reasonable. We ordered an album for ourselves, and smaller ones for our parents. AND, if you’ve heard nightmares about waiting months for your photos and never hearing from your photographer, I guarantee you won’t have that problem here; they have a 2-week turnaround. Chana emailed us 5 days after the wedding to tell us that the photos were all online. We had our proofs and DVD in our hands 9 days after the wedding. Oh, and they also do destination weddings!
