Bogdan Condor Photography
Bogdan was a pleasure to work with from the very first phone call. He was responsive, polite, enthusiastic and hard working. He really seems to enjoy what he does and that makes all the difference. We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better photographer to capture all of our important moments. On top of being a nice person and fun photographer, more importantly his pictures are beautiful. He completely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much Bogdan!! Sincerely, Cortney and Billy
Bogdan was an outstanding photographer for both our engagement shoot and wedding. We were never on time constraints which allowed us to have every moment of our wedding ceremony and reception captured, even every detail of getting ready. I love all of our wedding pictures and they are so special because Bogdan was able to capture all of the emotions of that day. Bogdans photography is great because all of our pictures are not posed but rather captured moments in time. We were married in an old fashion chapel and Bogdan made the lighting look so romantic in all of our photos. He was a pleasure to work with and gave me exactly what I was looking for in a photographer.
Bogdan was an absolute joy to have as a wedding photographer. My husband and I have very few photos of us over the years, and we were very nervous to have a "stranger" taking professional photos of us. Bogdan was calming and unobtrusive, and completely put us at ease. And, to top it off, our photos were amazing! Plus, his packages are amazing and the price is so reasonable, especially considering the quality. I can't endorse him enough.
Bogdan was awesome! He was extremely responsive and flexible when it came to the shots that my bride and I were looking for. Bogdan also had some very clever and creative ideas for photo opportunities that we'd never even thought of! He showed up early and stayed much, much longer than was necessary... Bogdan definitely earned his money! I would use Bogdan again in a heartbeat!!!
I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Bogdan Condor Photography to any bride who is looking for style and sophistication in their wedding photos! Bogdan was a pleasure to work with-- professional in every way. His pricing packages was affordable and he gives 110%! We loved getting to know Bogdan at our engagement session and definitely recommend that all brides take advantage of this option. We loved our photos and we have Bogdan to thank!
Working with Bogdan was absolutely the best vendor of our wedding in September. He was willing to drive all the way to King's Canyon National Park to walk through a hot, humid, muddy field for our engagements shoot, which of course turned out beautifully. He was so affordable for the type of services we received, which I know for sure because my husband has worked as a wedding photographer as well. He gave us unlimited hours on the big day, and ran around like a crazy person getting all the shots on my shot list. He was full of energy and enthusiam which helped everyone look natural and happy in the photos. He was incredibly professional on the big day, and I received a lot of compliments from our guests about him.
Finally, the most important thing of course, is how our pictures turned out. Here are just a few words I would use to descrive them: gorgeous, dreamy, wow, romantic, clean and not overdone or overprocessed, and perfect. We seriously could not have asked for better! He left us with the most beautiful memories of the day, and we will always be so grateful to him!
Thank you again Bogdan!
Bogdan did an amazing job with our photos! He was also really fun to have at our wedding. My brother-in-law wanted him for his wedding in August but he was already booked out....they were bummed.
Bogdan is fantastic! He was so professional at the initial meeting, showing us several large prints as well as a sample album. At the wedding he was so easy to work with. He had amazing ideas for pictures. Since the wedding was only a few days ago I haven't seen the actual pictures yet, but the ones he showed me on his camera already looked photoshopped! He does incredible work with the lighting, making the pictures naturally beautiful, without artificial work on them. I plan on using him again in the future for family portraits, pregnancy shots, etc.
Bogdan is a great photographer who is easy and enjoyable to work with. We highly recommend him. He has all the right equipment (including some awesome lights) and a good eye. As we searched for a photographer, we were specifically looking for a person in our budget who didn't blow-out (oversaturate) images. Oh, and someone whose style we liked…and personality. And who wouldn't run the show and make us do things we didn't want to do. So it took awhile, but I'm really happy we found Bogdan - he fit all the criteria! He impressed everyone at the wedding and people kept asking how we found him. The photos themselves are amazing and he put them on a great website. It is often hard to capture the magic of a day, but I think he managed to do it. My favorite photos are the portraits of my husband and I, and of the dancing. From the photos, you can really tell that we had a great day! (And an awesome party =) He is an incredibly hard worker - he was there the whole wedding day taking photos (and I mean the whole day - 10 am to 11 pm) and probably only took a 10 min. break. And he got the photos back to us in about a month. His willingness to travel was a huge plus. We live in Los Angeles but got married in the Lake Tahoe area. He was willing to meet us in February to look at the venue in Lake Tahoe, drive down to LA for an engagement session, and of course, drive to Lake Tahoe for the wedding. The engagement session was also fun. We took photos for five hours and have many great ones! Oh, and be sure to check out the albums he offers - they really are beautiful.
Finding a photographer seemed to be a daunting task. I was more picky choosing a photographer than any other detail of our wedding, and my husband and I are exceptionally pleased with Bogdan's work. It wasn't just the final product - it was his dedication, attention to detail, how thorough he was, and the pride he takes in his work; I can't emphasize this enough. He made sure everything was going to be perfect by going out of his way to come out to the property we got married at to see when the sun sets, and take inventory of the landscape. He did his homework... he knew what I wanted. The engagement shoot was thought out just as much. The photos are amazing (eh hem, AMAZING!!!) and as I go through them over and over again, I can't believe all of the moments he caught. I wouldn't even consider another photographer after him.
Bogdan shot our wedding this past June and truly did an incredible job. We were unable to meet with him before the wedding so we had a Skype introduction and the day before the wedding he came to our location and was full of great ideas. The day of the wedding he somehow was able to run back and forth between myself getting ready and my bride, and still manage to take pictures of the guests as he arrived! When it came time to do the family pictures he was fast and effecient so that we were able to get to our wedding party. He captured great images of our family and friends and managed to make them not look cheesy as can often be the case with wedding pictures. I would HIGHLY recommend him as your wedding photographer as he is both an artist and a great guy to be around!
Bogdan was the photographer for my wedding in Tahoe, and I couldn't be happier with his work. He was on-time, he was quiet and blended into the background when appropriate, and he let us be ourselves for the pictures instead of trying to put us into awkward positions. Best of all was the fact that his pictures were very natural and overall told the story of our day. He also had "teaser" photos available to us before we even got back from our honeymoon! For all of these reasons, I highly recommend Charles for photographing any event
Vendor response to review
I think Charles was the videographer...:))
When I contacted Bogdan for the first time, he was very personable and attentive to my requests for my daughter's wedding. I appreciated his willlingness to work within my budget, timelines, etc. He also knew of the other photographers I contacted, which assured me that he was a real professional. There are a lot of
"new entrants" in this business, and it is scary chosing the right phtographer, since they provide you with the memories of that special day.
He showed up on time, was not intrusive to the wedding, yet captured some great moments of the wedding. His personality and talent were a perfect match for the wedding. He also delivered the DVD ahead of schedule after the wedding.
I have no hesitation in recommending Bogdan as a professional...
Bogdan's work speaks for itself; clean, elegant and as natural as you can ask for. Coupled with his personality this makes him the ideal wedding photographer for any couple looking to hire a photographer for their wedding day.
Hello, my name is Bogdan, I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Bay Area, California and I would like to thank you for visiting my site. I will go straight to the point, which is also the reason you are here: my photography...First of all, my work is not about Photoshop manipulation. My images are not defined by some fading trend. I like to keep my photography as close to reality as possible. My goal is to capture the essence of who you are by capturing your day naturally, without trying to attempt to pose you into someone who I think you should be.
As a wedding photographer today, I do my best to manipulate the scene as little as possible. I may help the light along in a given situation, but I still prefer to allow things to occur organically. I think brides prefer it that way as well. The energy I give for each and every event is spent on anticipating, and reacting to real moments in time. I'd rather wait for the moment, than to make the moment.
The words that best describe my images are light, texture, dimension, mood, composition, anticipation, passion, emotion, energy and romance. I'm looking forward to hear about your plans, feel free to call me or shoot me an e-mail.
