Furious photographers are true professionals! Working with whatever you got or anything you throw in front of them. We don't know how to pose or smile. Doug and Danny lead us and made us feel comfortable. The photos came out amazing. Way more then what I was expecting. They even created a same day photo slide show for the evening banquet. The entire package , engagement + wedding day was very affordable and definitely worth every penny.
Good photographer. On time, creative, experienced.
Loved working with Doug and his crew. The pictures came out beautiful. Doug was quick to respond to my emails and very reassuring. He was also very patient especially when my mom made conflicting directions.
During the reception, Doug had set up our photos as a slide show. Talk about FAST! A week later, we already have our proofs. Great people! Fun to work with!
First some things about me, I have a perfectionist mentality and am super picky about everything. I came across Furious Photographers based on my cousin's recommendation, she raved about him and she is also someone very much like me so I had to check him out.
What can I say about Furious Photographers? Doug is simply in one word: AMAZING! He is super professional and VERY easy to get a hold of! Which for a bride to be is very important! He was always on top of everything, quick on his feet, very good at improvising and just makes you feel comfortable! The engagement pictures we took were seriously awesome! The pictures turned out great and he was super quick with the turnaround!
Wedding day, very professional, arrived early, he drove up with his crew the day before, he is from the LA area and the wedding was in San Jose. He had all equipment set up and was totally helpful with family and anything with the wedding! Shots from wedding captured the day impeccably! No words can describe how perfect the shots came out, as a bride who is nervous about the outcome of wedding day pictures, you do not have to worry about these photos! The most nicest guys in the world! I swear, they pulled so many things that made the wedding day! I mean they surprised us with a gallery shots of the wedding day during the reception. Also, they refused to drink with us before and during the wedding even though we wanted them to celebrate with us, super professional about their work! Also, did I say quick turnaround? Usually photographers take 2 weeks or more to get pictures back to you, Doug got them to us in a week! All I can say is Doug will be our photographer for life! For the quality, price, professionalism, service he is the best! Totally worth every penny and MORE! You will not go wrong booking Furious Photographers!
We hired Furious for our Engagement and Wedding photography and have ZERO regrets. They are truly the best and most creative in the business!!! Doug and his team are truly wonderful people and their work is impeccable - photojournalism style - the kind of stuff that could be in high fashion magazines - very editorial. We have received tons of compliments from friends and family on the work they have done. I would recommend them for any wedding or engagement session. I hope to hire them again to photograph just about anything because I know they will capture the essence of the event in a unique and creative way just as they did with our wedding and engagement session.
Doug and Danny were AMAZING at our wedding this past weekend!!!! There are simply no words to describe how talented, professional and kind they both are. Due to taking longer than expected for hair and makeup, we had fallen quite behind schedule leaving little time for photographs yet they managed to get every shot we wanted. They are simply the best. Even my dad who always can find something to be critical of had only amazing things to say about these two. Check out their website. You will be so happy if you go with Furious! We cant wait to see the photos!!
Update: We received our edited digital copies 10 days after our wedding - way earlier than expected given stories we have heard from our friends who used other photographers. I can't wait to pick out the pictures for our album!
From the moment I discovered the Furious Photographers website and blog, I new that I wanted to book them. Doug and Danny had a refreshing identity and unique style in their photos and that was EXACTLY what we were looking for. I frantically called my then fiance to call and find out their availability and he told me that he talked to Doug on the phone and he seemed SUPER nice and chill. We were both a bit surprised since I've been met with less than friendly responses when I called other photographers earlier in my search. Since then it was a lovely journey with our wedding photographers. They're not only really sweet and fun but professional. I was delighted when they answered any questions we had via phone call or email really quickly. I also got all my photos sent to me in less than a month, a record. They're also really great at making you feel relaxed.
The day of the engagement photo shoot was pretty much AMAZING! It was soooo much fun and they had so many creative ideas. I was really amused to watch them do their "craft" since they're pretty much geniuses at incorporating the changing environment and using it to their advantage for unique pictures. My wedding pictures turned out so beautiful that some of my friends asked if they were real, lol. My friends were impressed when I told them that they do such a good job of taking the actual picture on the spot that they don't need to post-process that much.
I recommend them to all brides~!!
I actually met with a lot photographers for my wedding as well..
Douglas is the nicest, and most friendly photographer I've ever met.
He is very easy to communicate with and respond my emails very quickly while other vendors wouldn't reply that fast.
Because of that, Douglas is the ONLY vendor that I didn't need to worry about while planning my wedding.
We got our wedding photos and they look soooo nice, we double look because it's sooo nice!!! Wow!!! I love every single one of them. The photos Douglas and Danny took are professional and they caught the moment!!! Especially the father and daughter dance. It's my first time dancing with my dad and the photos will help us to memorize that moment forever!
I highly recommend Furious Photographers (Douglas) to anyone shopping around for a wedding photographer. Truly high class professionalism & work!!!
I LOVE FURIOUS PHOTOGRAPHERS! Their professionalism, creativity, quality, and efficiency make Doug and his team STUPENDOUS. Doug and Danny took our engagement pictures in Los Angeles and being that I hadn’t been drinking (as it was only 11am) and it was my first time at a professional photo shoot, I was pretty nervous. I wanted our pictures to come out great and I trusted FP since I saw photos of their past sessions. I was just concerned that my nervousness would show on my face during all the pictures. Doug and Danny definitely kept me at ease and made sure my husband and I were comfortable. I started out feeling really awkward but after running around the city with these guys, our photo shoot became an outdoor adventure! The pictures looked AMAZING! All the colors and the images looked brilliant. I loved it. Plus we got to see the pictures within the next day. THESE GUYS WORK FAST!
Furious Photographers also photographed our wedding, but this time it was Doug and Muriel. I have no idea how much editing they did but the pictures looked PERFECT. When I compared the teal color of my bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen vests, ties, and paper lanterns that I used for the aisle décor at our ceremony, they were close but didn’t match in real life as well as I had hoped but I used them anyways. In the pictures, the colors were all SPOT ON, looking exactly how I hoped they would! I was so excited and impressed! They caught all the best moments of that evening and I was able to relive it within a few days after the wedding when I got see all of my fabulous photos! Thanks Furious Photographers! I will definitely be recommending him and his team to all my friends and fam.
My husband actually found furious photographers online and decided they were "the ones" after looking at their amazing photos and different look to their photography. We really loved their style and how they made the photos look like art, so unique!!
Doug and Danny were the main and assistant to our wedding and are awesome photographers! We had the pleasure of having them do our engagement photos and also wedding photos. During our engagement session, I liked how they didn't rush us and let us just go around and take our time. I liked how they helped us to take some really cute photos in random areas of the amusement park as well! Very creative and the photos came out lovely! I especially like how sometimes they would help us with poses that we wouldn't have thought of ourselves, and they were really fun to work with! They were also very patient and also made sure we got all the photos we wanted, and we had a nice day with them getting to know them!
I really appreciated how Doug was very easy going and pleasant to work with and went above and beyond my expectations. Doug worked with us to be available to help us take some extra photos to set up as portraits when we didn't feel we had any from the engagement session to use, and he even printed them for us! I thought that was very thoughtful of him, because he is busy and didn't have to do that!
On our wedding day, he not only was our photographer but also was like my personal wedding assistant! He was especially helpful in bustling my dress when my MOH didn't know how to do it, and half way through my wedding it started coming loose and he lent a hand again! Our photobook came out great too and all of the pictures were stunning. I liked how their photos aren't all just your average posed photos, but "in the moment" and looked spectacular!
I also really liked Danny's photos, how he captured certain moments and aspects that Doug might not have as he was pretty busy snapping away! I also thought he had a great eye for photos.
All in all, I can't imagine having anyone else...they were great to work with, photos came out great, and I thought they made a great team! Doug also was amazing and printed out a photo canvas for us free of charge! MUCH LOVE to Furious Photographers!!
Doug and Danny are great, easy going guys that will put in the effort to make sure you have the pictures you want. We hired them for both the engagement session and wedding despite the fact that I walked into the meeting only planning on having them for the wedding day. I warned them ahead of time that my fiance at the time hated taking pictures. However, within the first few snaps of the camera they had him laughing quite a bit more than expected. Doug will tell you exactly how to pose and where to look which was very helpful for us. They are also good at scoping out unique places for your pictures and you know they are trying to get the best shot possible because these two guys compete against each other to see which pictures the couple like the most.
We did our engagement session pretty close to the wedding since we didn't live in California at the time, but Doug was able to turn things around very fast so that we could have a portrait of us at the wedding. On the day of the wedding, it seemed like they never stopped working for a minute. Even during dinner they were busy putting together a slide show for us. If there was one thing I'd do differently though I probably would have made a more specific shot list, printed it out, and asked them to keep me from deviating too much from it. Overall I highly recommend these fantastic guys.
We worked with Furious for our engagement and our wedding, and can not say enough about how AMAZING they are. Doug (and Danny) exceeded our expectations in every way. They took creative, beautiful photos of our wedding while also making sure to get all the classic shots every bride wants. We had access to our photos very quickly and the quality of the photos were perfect. Doug is very nice, a lot of fun, and really good at knowing how to make you look good :) You simply can't go wrong with Furious... they are worth every penny and we plan to keep using them for future events! Love them!!
My wife and I spent a few weeks researching photographers online, and the first website portfolio we truly loved was Furious Photographers. Doing the responsible thing, we interviewed a total of four photogs, two we found online, and two were recommended by our planner, and all were very talented. When we met with Doug, his great personality and cool style -- in addition to his incredible work -- felt like the perfect fit for our wedding. We felt pretty sure about choosing him until he told us the story of how he got in to photography...that sealed the deal. In addition to being a very talented artist, it was evident that he was a great person, and someone we definitely wanted to be a part of our big day.
Once we agreed to terms, we set a date to do our engagement shoot. My wife was very nervous as she didn't know what to expect, but Doug was a consummate professional. He made us both very comfortable and spent a few hours walking all around Santa Monica with us. It was a fun day, and he did a fantastic job of capturing the moments. He exceeded all expectations, as the pictures he shot made us look so much cooler than we are in real life. He is truly gifted.
When it came to the big day, my wife and I had fortunately hired great vendors across the board, but Doug and Danny stood out. They arrived early, dressed to code, and worked every moment that they were there. Their previous experience was invaluable as they were prepared for every situation. Even when I forgot my tie and had to run to the mall to buy another one, Danny asked to tag along to capture the moment. The highlight of the night (aside from the wedding) was shortly after dessert when Doug surprisingly put together a slide show of the images he captured throughout the day and presented them on a flat screen TV to all of our friends and family. We sat in awe as we watched the incredible shots that were captured, and were truly taken aback by how thoughtful Doug was to do that for us (unplanned, and never discussed).
I have and will continue to recommend Doug and Furious Photographers for weddings or any other sort of event that you want captured. He is an incredibly talented artist who has a unique and contemporary style. Our friends and family still compliment us on how great our wedding photos turned out. That is all thanks to Doug.
After the wedding venue cancelled on me four months before our wedding, my previous photographer was not available for the new date. Since photography was the one thing that my fiance and I thought was one of the most important parts of our wedding, I was devastated. But then I found Doug. I was first struck by how professional yet laidback that Doug was. When I first met him, he shared a lot about how he got to be the photographer that he is now and immediately turned a stressful situation into a very pleasant one. He also showed me his amazing photographs and I was so relieved and excited to have found an even better photographer for our wedding!
The theme of turning stressful situations into pleasant experiences was persistent throughout our time with Doug and Danny. We live in Northern California and could not make it down to Southern California for our engagement session. So, they came up to us and took photographs with us (and our dogs!) Also, it was raining on the day of our engagement session and we had planned on doing the photos in Golden Gate Park. Even though we were bummed that it was raining, Doug and Danny were actually excited and during the ride to the park, were telling us how cool photos in the rain can be. In spite of the rain, we and our dogs had an amazing time and when we saw the photographs, we were blown away. All of our family and friends were too. They had captured our relationship us so well and in such an artistic and unique style.
When it came to the day of our Laguna Beach wedding, they were just as professional but still made us laugh the entire time. They rolled with all the crazy family obligations (and last-minute changes in plans) of an Indian wedding all with a smile on their face. During our cocktail hour and just before our reception, they managed to get hooked up to a television screen in our ballroom and show our guests our engagement photos as well as the photos that they had taken earlier in the day. All of our guests were super impressed with this and felt like this added such a personal touch to our wedding that they had not seen at other weddings.
While they themselves are awesome people, Doug and Danny are simply amazing photographers. The photos of our wedding are simply stunning. There are no words to describe how happy we are with our photos. We can't stop looking at them and even our picky Indian parents are happy with the photos. We are so amazed with how everything turned out and happily would recommend Furious Photographers in a heartbeat to anyone.
Doug from Furious Photographers is absolutely hands down the best vendor you will hire on your most important day.
To start off, Doug was SUPER fast and responsive with all of my questions and inquiries. His website and blog photos reeled me in and his personality and professionalism anchored me down for life.
To give you a quick briefing of my personality. I'm highly meticulous and extremely nitpicky. I analyzed over 1000 websites from photographers in the Bay Area, So Cal, Texas, Chicago, Hawaii, and NY. I finally narrowed it down to a short list of affordable photographers and a list of high caliber ideal photographers. Doug was the only one who had both qualities I was looking for. Unfortunately, after all my research, I discovered he was already booked for my date. This has so far been the single most disappointing element of my wedding planning.
As I stated above, Doug is incredibly responsive, unlike most wedding vendors I dealt with. He knew i was interested in photography and before I knew it, we were emailing each other like old friends even though I wasn't able to book him for my wedding date. Despite the fact that I couldn't give him my business, he continued to email me with photography knowledge (since I was looking to get an SLR) and giving me tips. He genuinely cares about people and his art and is willing to work within your budget b/c he truly loves what he does. You can sense the passion he has when he shows you his favorite shots or when he talks about his cameras and equipment like it's a Lourve artifact.
Skip forward a few months, I'm at my friend's wedding and she was luckily able to book Doug and his wonderful partner Jeff. They were the coolest guys, so relaxed and always smiling. Doug even brought an extra camera for me to play with and he handed out his own equipment to share with the guests who owned SLRs. The guests were thrilled and had a great time playing with his gadgets. My friend's wedding was 3 LONG days (indians know how to party) and Doug and Jeff were in top form every second of all 3 days. I even asked them to come have one drink with us for NYE but they declined b/c they don't drink on the job and even when they weren't working, they were preparing for the next day so they wanted to be truly alert.
About 100 photos were ready for viewing by cocktail hour and ALL the photos were ready in a proof gallery in ONE WEEK. Unbelieveable turnaround time. Basically, these guys raised the bar/set the bar for great photography and professionalism and there is no other out there like them!
As I write this review, I'm still bummed beyond belief that I can't have Doug on our special day BUT he will definitely be our resident family photographer for the rest of our lives. My entire family and extended family are ready to book him in a heartbeat after seeing those photos. They were speechless and in awe and one of the aunties even cried because Doug captured such emotion from the day.
Doug is swamped these days so his website and blog are not up to date but I'm sure he can show you some recent client galleries and trust me, you'll be in photography heaven.
I promise you that you will not find a better vendor than Furious Photographers.
After looking at countless photographers, I was so happy to find Furious Photographers, they have such a great eye for the scene, catching moments, and they maintain artistic appeal but still focus on the people in the wedding. They are everything we wanted in photographers. It's important to choose a photographer that not only in their artistic ability but also their personality because you are going to be spending over 6 hours with them, and as soon as I emailed Doug & especially when I met him in person, I knew what a great person he was, he is easy to talk to and very knowledgeable.
My wedding was last weekend and I can not even begin to describe how absolutely incredible Doug and Johnny are, we loved having them be part of our wedding & felt so connected and at ease with them. Doug is so talented and did an amazing job setting up shots, my entire wedding party keeps asking me constantly about the pictures, especially the one they started calling the "vogue magazine shot" . I did not know who the second shooter was until the day of but I completely trusted Doug to bring in someone just as amazing to shoot the wedding and of course he did - Johnny! These guys were so much fun to be around and were so professional, I heart them! You MUST book these guys asap, they are phenomenal & you will never have to worry about a single thing.
Doug shot our engagement photos and we LOVED the pictures. Friends and family just can't wait to see our wedding photos because they loved the engagement photos to much. Well, we can't wait either!
Doug and Danny were very fun and awesome to work with. They were energetic, courteous, and professional. They are quick, talented, and everything that you can ask for when you look for photographers.
They were able to showcase some of the pictures they took on the wedding day on a TV slideshow that they prepared towards the end of the reception. All the guests were just so captured by the photos!
We also had the "studio booth" that one of the guys, Tang, was in charge of. Our guests had a fun time taking photos during down time and Tang was just the sweetest guy! He told my cousin that he'd volunteer to watch our gifts because he was right there. :)
Overall, if you like great photos and nice, fun people to work with, these are the guys you want!
great service and beautiful pictures. make sure to make a list of must have posed shots if you want them
We worked with Doug(primary photographer) and an associate who was awesome. He was quick to respond to everything and so wonderful on our wedding day. The photos were up online to proof in days and were better than we could have hoped. They are incredible!
Truly amazing and such great people. They were part of the wedding party. They even surprised us with a slide show of pictures that they took that day at the reception. PHENOMENAL!!!
I had already selected a photographer before I had the good fortune of stumbling upon the Furious Photographers website. One pass at their gallery and blog and I immediately canceled my first choice and booked their services.
Lawrence and Doug and the rest of their team are hands down the most impressive photographers I've ever worked with. It was a good feeling from the moment we met them at their studio, and might I also add that their talents extend far beyond just wedding photography?
Their style is laid-back, spontaneous, fun-loving, creative, polished and unique. Every picture we've seen has been amazing, every single one deserved to be blown up on canvas and displayed as art. They gave us a great engagement session, they were Johnny-on-the-spot on our wedding day, didn't complain about the hours ONCE, risked LIFE and LIMB to get the right shot (straddling banisters, balancing on chairs in a fountain...), did wonderful extra things that I didn't ask for during the reception, and then thanked ME for it. They are amazing in every sense of the word.
I can't say enough good things about them. Every time Renee and I look at our photos we will be grateful to the Furious Photographers for perfectly capturing the most important day in our lives.
After countless hours of online researching, we found that the Furious Photographers left their competition in the dust. Their website showcased exactly what we wanted: an artistic and refreshingly refined interpretation to wedding photography. We made contact through emails and phone calls and found them to be really friendly and understanding of our specific needs and ideas. The first time we met with Doug reinforced our first instinct that we had made the right decision. Meeting him felt like we were just hanging out with an old friend - we talked for over an hour about all sorts of things, giving us a good sense of what to look forward to. Little did we know that this bright and talented team would far exceed our greatest expectations.
We wanted to set up a "photo booth" area so guests could enjoy taking some funny pictures. When we discussed this with FP, they said all we needed was the backdrop and props, and that they would take care of the rest. They COMPLETELY enhanced the whole experience! They had an entire set up to accommodate us - lighting, a remote-operated camera, and a laptop that instantly displayed each image as it was captured. FP even brought along a huge flat-screen TV that played a slideshow of the pre-ceremony shots.
Doug, Lawrence and their associate Gavin were able to capture the energy of the evening as well as document all our intimate details. We personally designed our own wedding to represent our comprehensive style and interests, which resulted in mostly unique and non-traditional elements. Having the outstanding FP team truly elevated that distinct vision. All we've heard are compliments about them and how our guests have never seen such services offered by photographers at other functions. Even our very experienced event coordinator was impressed with them.
Book them, period.
Prepare to be amazed by the unexpected and the original. We knew the photographs would be great when we hired them based on the impressive website at http://www.furiousphotographers.com. We were even more impressed by the additional touches that were done at the wedding to increase the effects of the photographs and the experience for us and our guests.
It's true what they say, all you have left at the end of your magical wedding are the photos. I'm so happy with our good fortune to find and hire Doug & Lawrence so I can relive the day over again in the pictures. Everyone that sees our photographs tells us they should be in a magazine and they are the best wedding photos they've ever seen.
I plan to hire them for any other events I have in the future that require photography. I will probably have to plan all of my events around their schedule, but it's worth it.
If you want original, exciting, beautiful photos, and a good experience with personality and professionalism, hire these guys.
You won't regret it!
Good photographers take pictures. Excellent photographers take pictures that transcend the moments they were intended to capture and become not only snapshots of time, but works of art.
Lawrence & Doug are excellent photographers.
They’re spontaneous, courteous, and always professional. They’re photographers that have the natural ability to freeze the best moments in an artistic way. Their posed shots effortlessly capture the personality of the couple being shot and their spontaneous shots look as though they took careful planning to accomplish. They’re always at the right spot at the right time and their results bear witness.
Look, if a wedding isn’t one of the most important events in a person’s life, I don’t know what is. And if you’re going to entrust your memories to complete strangers, you want to be absolutely sure that they’re competent, trustworthy…and worth their fee.
Lawrence & Doug are worth every penny.
Doug, Lawrence and Tang were all great!
Our relationship with them started back in April when Lawrence and Doug photographed our engagement pictures. They both had creative ideas about pictures locations and different poses. In the end, the pictures turned out amazing, all of our family and friends loved them! My husband and I had a really good time getting to know Doug and Lawrence that day.
Last month, Doug and Tang photographed our ENTIRE wedding day, and when I say ENTIRE, I mean from 8am to past 10pm. We had a Thai Water Blessing Ceremony in the morning, a Catholic Ceremony in the afternoon and a wedding reception in the evening. They had so much energy throughout the day and took some truly memorable pictures. In fact I look at the pictures almost everyday because they were able to really "capture" the moment in the pictures.
My husband and I loved working with them over the past few months and especially on our wedding day. We are so happy that we chose them to be our wedding photographers. They are truly talented and passionate about what they do and it shows in their pictures. We would definitely recommend them to our friends and family.
Lawrence, Doug and Julie were awesome!!!
Husband and I absolutely love them. Their work is very original and artistic. As most bride and groom agree, once the day was over, the only thing we'll remember of this day will be the pictures. Furious photographers made sure that our pictures were memorable.
Not only they are talented, they're also fun people to work with. Always coming up with ideas on the photo shoot. They like to joke around and have fun on the job, and are always looking to do different funky things; Like climbing the UCLA bruin bear (actually it was husband's idea which was supported by Doug and Lawrence) or jumping into the inverted fountain for our engagement photo session, taking pictures on a train track for our wedding photos!! =D
At the end, I overcame my fear of heights and fear of oncoming train (^_^) and the pictures turned out AMAZING...!!!
We absolutely love them and have recommended them to all our friends and family!
Doug and Lawrence are awesome! They are extremely talented and fun to work with. We met with them more than a year before our wedding and we clicked immediately. We liked their fun and artistic approach to wedding photography. We felt really comfortable taking pictures with them too. They did both our engagement and wedding photos. We were very pleased at the quality of the photos we received. Highly recommend them A+++++++++++++++
Doug and Lawrence are truly young talented individuals. We interviewed several photographers. Their professionalism and work impressed us. My FI especially loved the fact the Lawrence is trained as a sports photojournalist.
My FI and I loved our engagement session pictures. We hired them to do our engagement pictures too. We were so impressed with our engagement pictures that we showcased throughout our wedding. Our friends and family raved about the pictures.
We are loved the outcome of our wedding pictures. Doug and Lawrence exceeded our expectations. We are so glad that we choose them to be our wedding photographers. They truly are artists and very talented.
We are very satisfied with our photos and album. The pictures were absolutely beautiful. We still get emotional when we see our montage. We got our negatives and album in a timely manner. They are good about making sure that you are completely satisfied.
We would highly recommend them and give them an A+++.

Amazing photographers. The nicest people and work that you will ever see.
Furious Photographers are wonderful photographers to work with, I highly recommend their services to brides who are looking for great photographers...our All Made Up Team, Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist covering Orange County and Los Angeles County, have worked with them on numerous events and love the warm, caring, and vibrant ambiance they give their clients.
I've worked with Doug & his team a number of times in both 2009 and 2010, and am a HUGE fan of their work. Doug's personality is fun & easy going, he really knows how to put his clients at ease with his jokes & relaxed disposition. Their style is very unique and I love how the colors in all their photos pop. They always find the best locations for engagement shoots, and my brides have never been disappointed by their work. I fully recommend Furious Photographers for all your wedding photo needs!
