Harvard Photography was so wonderful to work with. The staff at Harvard (Jina, John and Debora-- they have others but these are the ones I worked with directly), were always available and on hand to answer any questions. They were very polite, professional and easy to work with. They allow you to switch out things from your package and like others have said, provide you with every single picture that is taken. For our e-session, Jose took the pictures at the beach. He was easy to work with and took great pictures. For our wedding, we had Lawrence and James (the assistant.) They captured every single thing that took place at the wedding and were constantly taking pictures.. They took many great pictures which makes it hard to choose for the album. Harvard Photography is so organized and gives you detailed information about how to schedule the photo sessions for the day of the wedding as well as how to pick pictures for the album. They are AWESOME and I can't wait to see our album.

Vivian was booked for the day of my wedding so she sent her assistant Angelina and two other girls. We were pleased with their services. They were on time and really fun to work with. They listened to you and for the most part all my bridesmaids were happy with the way they looked. They did a great job. Vivian was the person I contacted and she was nothing but sweet and always answered questions when I asked. The turn around time for replies varied from a day to a couple of days but she always replied. I would recommend them-- they came to our hotel room and finished a little bit earlier than scheduled so we were able to relax before our photographers came.

wedding alterations by Mahtab
I LOVE MAHTAB! She was so sweet, understanding, helpful and a dream to work with. She fixed my dress which was altered terribly by another tailor from a bridal salon. She knew exactly what to do and had it done in a week. More than the excellent service and superb quality of her work, she is just a wonderful woman who loves what she does and takes care of your wedding dress instead of looking at you as a way of getting $$. She really helped me by calming my nerves and just being understanding-- who doesn't need that when you're already stressed out about your wedding??? HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

We booked Cheesy Photobooths after doing research on the different photobooths out there. The thing that sold us on Cheesy was because they were going to give us 6 hours, unlimited prints, scrapbooking materials, double prints, plus a cd of all the prints as well as a scrapbook/guestbook which they assemble and mail out to you later. It's all included for $1350. We also booked Ryan for the video from Best Wishes Video which is a sister company to Cheesy Photobooth. He came early to shoot some footage, then he set up the photobooth, and later a couple of tech and someone to help with the scrapbook were there to man the booth area the whole time. They were on time, professional, reliable, and easy to work with. Highly recommended~!

Marina is a dream to work with. She was SOOOO awesome and helped me pick out the perfect dress for my wedding. I figured that I should just get my dress altered her as well but it was a huge mistake. I got my dress altered from Margoth because Marina kept saying how she tailors things for Nordstroms and is really good. When I went there for the 2nd fitting, Margoth didn't alter my dress correctly. The bustle was fine-- a French bustle but the bust of the dress was weird looking and did not sit close to my body. The dress was a corset dress so if we tied it tighter, it would squish the skin on my back and make it look really bad but the front of the dress was still loose and if someone tall was standing and looking down, they would be able to see everything. Margoth seemed to not really care and seemed more concerned with going home for the evening. She basically told me that there was nothing she could do and that I should go home, put the veil on and hopefully hide my back so that it would look fine. I found her to be really rude. I ended up taking my dress to Mahtab (who I should have gone to in the first place) to fix my dress. She knew exactly what to do and said a good tailor would have known what to do in order to fix a problem like this. I just found the tailor at Jinny's to be uncaring and rude. It totally left a bad taste in my mouth after the wonderful experience I had with purchasing my dress from them. I even told a lot of my friends who are getting married to purchase their dresses from Jinny's and a few have... but I DO NOT RECOMMEND GETTING IT ALTERED THERE. GO TO MAHTAB in Laguna Hills... she is so worth the drive.

Tim was the best DJ/MC! He was professional, on time, and has an incredible voice. He helped make my wedding run seamlessly by working with my coordinator and onsite coordinator. I was a bit worried at first because I never met with him in person before the wedding but just went off of reviews I found on project wedding and weddingbee. I'm so glad I did. He was awesome! I highly recommend him!
