We had a wonderful experience with Red Lantern Photography. Through the entire process (contract negotiation, planning, wedding, receiving photos and album review) they were responsive, courteous, professional, and friendly. While I was willing to spend a good deal to ensure that I got great pictures, I found that their pricing was very competitive. In fact, they were cheaper than most of the other photographers that I liked. On our wedding day, Red Lantern Photography proved they were worth their weight in gold. Even though we only paid for two photographers, they sent a third free of charge. Nader and Donna were there to personally shoot our wedding, and they were both incredibly nice to us, to our friends, and to our family. And the most important part: their pictures of our wedding were outstanding! Not only did they capture the tone of our wedding perfectly, but they had lovely photos from each part of the day and evening. They captured the most important moments without being obtrusive or disruptive. What I loved most is that they have a talent for a more natural style of photography. Red Lantern's photographers make great pictures from what is happening rather than relying on manipulation or posing for a great picture. Red Lantern Photography absolutely met my expectations (I got lovely pictures for a good price). The surprise is how much they've exceeded those expectations. Even though my wedding had come and gone, they worked very hard to create a lovely wedding album (part of the contract I paid for). It was clear to me that a considerable amount of thought, creativity, and skill was brought to this process. The wedding album they made for me is such a lovely momento, I will be proud to pass it onto our children. I have nothing but praise for Nadar and Donna and Red Lantern Photography. They did such a wonderful job!

Red Lantern was wonderful to work with. They shot both our casual meet and greet party and weddding in Palm Springs. They captured some great candid shots of everyone at the wedding. And they did a beutiful job at capturing the look and feel of the setting. We continue to get complements on our pictures and would recommend their services to anyone. We especially like the photo book option which is more like a real book than a photo album. It was also nice because we got all the photos so we were able to share those with others.

Red Lantern Photography was absolutely amazing. Nader and Donna were very helpful in every aspect of our January wedding. We started a year before the wedding with a beautiful engagement shoot in Joshua Tree National Park. What a breath taking backdrop! They provided us with a high-resolution DVD capturing all of the photos from the day, as well as 16x20 print of our choice to use for the photo our guests would sign around on the day of the wedding (instead of a guest book). They also posted our photos on Pictage for our friends and family to view. The day of the wedding they spent a very long 9 hours with us, from getting ready until the DJ played the last song. The photos are priceless, they are the only thing that remands when your big day has come and gone. We are still holding our breath to view of wedding album which is being designed by Nader, Donna and a graphic designer. I know it will turn out beautifully when it is finished! I have no complaints about Red Lantern Photography, I would highly recommend them to anyone, memories of your big day are too precious to trust to just anyone!

I LOVED having Nadar and Donna as part of my day. I couldn't have asked for a better team to relax my very nervous husband. My husband had said he would NEVER take pictures for more than an hour- we had him playing, smiling, and creating his own poses by the time we were done. I was glad to also have creative pictures and not just simple poses and the 'usual'. I felt like this team was non-invasive and really relaxed and mixed in with the company. That should have been very difficult when the whole wedding group was under 50 people and the wedding family with bride and groom was maybe 10. Thank you for the pleasurable experience! Too bad you were not in Washington for our home reception, we could have used you both to capture the moments there as well!

Donna and Nader, certainly fit the bill for capturing the essence of a wedding day. From the beginning of the process to the final results, they carry themselves with professionalism and a strong work ethic. Not only do they work hard, they are absolutely fun to work with, both willing to listen to the needs of the client and provide their own unique "eye" to move beyond the expected. Wedding days can be life's most high stressed experiences, yet Donna and Nader's calm nature help ease the day's tension and make the photography experience a more enjoyable one. They have our highest recommendation, both as vendors and as individuals.

Every time people see our photos, they always comment on how beautiful they are. Donna & Nader really captured the emotion and the energy of the day. We wanted to invest in our photographer so that we would have beautiful images of our special day for the rest of our lives...and that is what we have! Aside for the amazing photos of our wedding, we also experienced the professional and friendly service from Donna & Nader. They were great to work with. They make you feel like your wedding is the most important event. Together with their eye for capturing the moment and their professionalism, I highly recommend them to any person looking for a photographer.

I met with Nader and Donna, and knew right away that I wanted them to do my wedding. My husband and I felt very comfortable with them. The day of my wedding they were amazing, They were very professional. The thing that I really liked was that they had a small pocket book of photos with them the day of the wedding. It was a great idea that way they can show you different pose's. Once my photo's were posted on pictage,and I was able to view them, they brought tears to my eyes.. I felt like I was reliving my wedding, the photos are stunning!!! I could not have picked a better photographer!!

Red Lantern was perfect for our wedding! The preparation and consultation ahead of time was just enough for our small, intimate wedding. It ensured we got exactly what we were looking for, which in our case was a real focus on candid shots with a few key portraits. The attention to detail in their preparation is obvious and would ensure a wedding of any size would be smooth. Nader captured some of the most incredible emotion throughout the day and I still get teary when I look back through the pictures! He somehow managed to record all of the memories while being completely unintrusive. I would highly recommend Red Lantern to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

Red Lantern Photography was an absolutely wonderful decision for our wedding photographer! We found them online as local to Palm Springs and loved the photos online. Then, when we hired a wedding coordinator and she suggested them too...we knew it would be worth it. We paid a flat fee for 2 photographers and 7 hours of coverage. Nader and Donna worked ahead of time making sure that we had the same idea of what we wanted from our pictures as they would provide. Starting about 8 months before the wedding, we filled out a short survey and talked extensively on email and on the phone. They knew the location and scouted it out ahead of time. We had one in person meeting three days before the wedding when we finally arrived in Palm springs. They suggested backdrops that would look good and get the Mid century look we were wanting. Nader and Donna worked seamlessly in our wedding group and got every shot we wanted and even more we didn't know we wanted but LOVE! They gave us artsy shots, they gave us formals, they took the unexpected and left us with a TON of great stuff to choose from! We absolutely loved the way they were laid back and had fun with all of us. They were professional, hard working, friendly and great company! Highly reccommended!
