From the moment I started emailing Russell, to our coffee-shop meeting to discuss details, to the day of the wedding and every day since he has been 100% amazing and attentive. We had a bit of a stressful start to our wedding, losing our location and searching quickly to find a new one. Russell was not only understanding and adaptable but offered up support.

And I'll go ahead and point out that the rates he offers are wonderfully competitive - lots of quality without a ridiculous price tag.
Obviously when it comes down to hiring a photographer you want someone who takes great pictures. Russell and Emily obviously do - their portfolios speak for themselves - but a good photography team provides so much more. Russell and Emily listened to what I wanted. They studied my Pintrest board (come on, you know you have one) and at the wedding were able to point out different images I had pinned off the tops of their heads (and then captured something similar but unique to us). I designed every detail of my wedding and the fact that Russell and Emily paid attention to that was so meaningful to me. They cared about our complicated family dynamic and made it a point to remember names (which in turn resulted in pictures of these important individuals). And they were kind, creative and fun to be around which is something of value that may get overlooked.

At the end of the day, you don't frame all 500+++++ photos that your photographer and guests take of your wedding, but with Russell and Emily by your side, you will not have a shortage of frame-wrothy, artistic, images that capture one of the most memorable days of your life.

I'm so happy we brought Snider Photo and Design onto our "bridal team" and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

After much research, my husband and I decided to go with Snider Photo and Design to capture our wedding and we cannot be happier. Our photos are simply amazing, and we have gotten so many compliments. We had a rustic so-cal backyard wedding and needed someone who would be able to capture all of the details. When looking for the right photographer, we searched through many websites and many albums and every single one just looked simple. Not a single photographer or company had anything remotely close to what i was looking for, the type of photos that could capture a moment and make it so incredible that you feel like your actually present at the wedding, until we stumbled upon Snider. Their imagination, creativity and artistic abilities make for the most beautiful breathtaking pictures. In addition, Russell was professional, creative, and a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond. We truly couldn't be happier with our pictures. Truly breathtaking.

I Recently got married April 14, 2012, at Fransican Gardens. I chose Snider photo design for my engagement photo's and Wedding day photography. Working with Russell and Emily Snider was one great experience, they are well organized, on time and know what are the key photos most brides want. They captured all the events that were flashing by my eyes! They recently posted on their blog a preview of my wedding day photo's and words can not describe how these photos look and made me feel. They look so beautiful and professional. I love everyone they choose to share, and can not wait to see all the rest. Russell and Emily made my day go very smoothly and made sure I got the pictures that I request and had been discussing in previous weeks prior to the wedding. Thank you Russell and Emily for capturing my special day and making it last a life time. You do amazing work, and are amazing to work with. I would give a 5/5 and refer to anyone looking for a GREAT Photographer!! With Love, Mrs. & Mr. Wright aka (Mrs. Always Wright)

Russell and Emily were the PERFECT people to shoot our wedding! Honestly, I think we hit the jackpot when we were referred to Snider Photo and Design. Not only are their pictures AMAZING, but they are so easy to work with! Our interaction started with a meeting with Russell, who is very easy going and friendly, yet professional. He answered all our questions and set us at ease right away. At the time, we received a free engagement shoot with our package. After setting a date, I became sick and had to cancel. Russell was very understanding and we were able to work out a post wedding session. That kind of flexibility doesn't happen often!

On the day of the wedding, Russell and Emily showed up with a lot of energy and ready to get to work. Despite the cold weather, they never once complained and seemed genuinely thrilled to capture every moment. During the ceremony, I can't say that I saw them once!!! Yet, they caught so many beautiful and meaningful shots that I was blown away!! I can honestly say that when we saw our teaser photos, I felt like I was right back in that moment.

I think that the value for what you get is great! I met with a wide range of photographers with varying prices, and Snider was the perfect fit in terms of price and quantity/quality of pictures. We opted to get the disc of images so we can print our own, which was delivered as promised.

I may not be a professional, but even my untrained eye can see that what these photographers can do with lighting, placement, and creativity is pure talent. I feel like these pictures truly showed the love between me and my husband.

We were thrilled to have Russell and Emily capture every moment during our wedding day. We hired them for 10 hours (a very long day), but they were so unobtrusive, we hardly even knew they were there. Their easy going personalities made us comfortable in front of the camera, and they instantly became more like our welcomed guests, rather than a vendor.

Snider Photo and Design delivered our engagement and wedding photos in a timely manner and was very responsive to all our emails. They also had a wonderful rapport with our videographers and day-of coordinator, which made our day go by effortlessly. We highly recommend this creative team - their photos and DVD slideshow will make your heart tingle as you relive your wedding day.

We chose Russell as our wedding photographer because we loved what we saw. His style of photography, editing, and his unique ability to capture the perfect moment drew us in. As a photo enthusiast I really didn't see what all of these other photographers had to offer up as competition. In the end our instincts to choose Russell definitely payed off because my husband and I are more than thrilled with how our photos turned out.

Our situation was a little complicated in the sense that the wedding was in L.A., I currently reside in Hawaii and my now husband was in Okinawa, Japan on deployment. Russell understood the difficulty with planning this type of wedding and was flexible and understanding the entire time.

Not only was Russell great at his job, he was also good company! We really enjoyed spending time with him during the photo moments and would definitely choose Russell again if we had to do it all over again!!

There are not many words that can descibe the pure joy of working with Russell and Emily of Snider Photo and Design. From the day that we met Russell, we knew that he was everything we wanted in our photographer. From his personable demeanor to his amazing work, we fell in love.

Our engagement session was at The Arboretum in Arcadia on a hot day, and through all the walking and heat, Russell managed to take some of the most amazing photos I had ever seen, let alone been in. My husband and I loved the way we captured our love in every photo he took.

By the time the wedding came around, Russell and Emily were no longer one of our vendors, they were guests to our wedding that captured every smile, tear, and hint of love expressed on our very special day.

It is not often that you look for a photographer, and find a friend instead. My husband and I look forward to all the times to come, where we can call on this pair to capture the love and life that we share!...
