Gloria Mesa Wedding Photography
She's impeccable! Couldn't have chosen a better photographer, she will make your wedding extra special!!
I could not have dreamed up a better photographer for our wedding. My new husband and I interviewed so many photographers and then we found Gloria. We knew from the second we met her that we were going to choose her. From our first meeting with her, she was kind, caring, funny and so professional. She has a personality that nobody can beat! On our wedding day, not only was she on time to everything, she made sure that everyone stayed on schedule all day. She made me and Joe feel so special and she truly captured every important moment of the day. Our guests could not stop telling us how much they loved our photographer.
My husband and I LOVED having Gloria be a part of our special day (married in March at LA River Center & Gardens). We had two ceremonies - a Hindu and a Civil ceremony, and she was present for both. Gloria is incredibly warm, kind, and friendly, and everyone felt at ease being photographed by her. Gloria is one of those people that has a gift, not only for photography, but for making you feel like you've known each other for years from the moment you meet. She connects so easily with those around her while maintaining an air of professionalism at all times.
As far as the photos are concerned, we were extremely pleased with the end-product. We ended up with 3 CDs of photos (since we had two ceremonies) and are able to share with loved ones. We plan on ordering some from her (although we haven't done it yet), but even printing her photos ourselves worked out well. We were very pleased with her prices, very competitive, especially since you get the digitals. We can't say enough about what a pleasure it was working with Gloria - and I hope we can use her services again in the future (I don't know if she does baby or family photos, but I'd hire her in a second if she does!!)!
Thank you Gloria for capturing all of our special moments on our special day!!
excellent photographer and a wonderful warm personality. great at lighting and portraits .
my wedding album is absoultey beautiful, expensive but quality work
Gloria was amazing to work with and made us fell comfortable and at ease.
For my wedding, choosing the right photographer was second in importance to choosing the right groom! Upon meeting Gloria, her relaxed and friendly personality made it easy for me to communicate our needs for a wedding photographer. While her portfolios are testament enough to her professionalism and talent, I had a very specific style and vision for our wedding. I needed a photographer who was willing to listen. Gloria was flexible and patient, and in the end captured our special moments in just the ways we had talked about. After spending an afternoon with Gloria while she took our engagement photos (and after seeing the beautiful results) my fiancé and I felt confident in her ability. She truly is a photographer for any couple’s style. We had a large bridal party (ten bridesmaids and nine groomsmen) and Gloria navigated the scene with perfect poise and professionalism; she was direct and assertive when needed, but overall playful and calm to insure that everything went smoothly – and indeed it did. Gloria took photos at our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner as well and not a moment was missed. Her photos are classic and timeless and I could not be more thankful that she was with us to share in our marriage. In the end I gained a lifelong friend who I now consider to be a special part of the family. I look forward to having her capture all our important events in the years to come.
Gloria was a dream to work with. She is a true artist and creates amazingly beautiful images. She was so easy to be around and gently guided us through the shots we wanted and kept things moving in a timely way. Many many family members commented on how professional and non-intrusive she was during our ceremony and reception and she managed to get a ton of great shots. She was very good at seeing where the good shots were with natural lighting and capturing people's emotions so photos did not seem too pose-y. Now the hard part is deciding which of these great photos to put on display. We were so lucky to get to work with Gloria.
Gloria was FANTASTIC!!!! She was great with all of the people at the wedding. She was positive and fun! She got the pictures to us very quickly after the wedding and we LOVED her work!
Gloria did a fantastic job photographing our wedding........we couldnt have asked for anything better.....thanks Gloria!!!!!!
Gloria brings a unique eye to wedding photography. Everyone at the wedding was very impressed with her professionalism and her ability to record the action without intruding. We were very pleased with her results and got many compliments from family and friends.
We appreciated Glori'as professionalisma nd have referred her to a few interested parties. Our pictures are beautiful.
I think having Gloria as my Photographer for my wedding was the best desicion I made in my wedding planning process. I was kind of frustrated becuase I did not want to keep the vendor I was originally working with. When I heard about Gloria, I felt such a relief to find that being so close to my wedding date (a month in a half) she still had my date open. She is the best I really like her work! her positive attitude towards everyone in the wedding party and of course her flexibility to work with us and make it happen. I recomend her to anyone that will like to have a good memory saved in pictures from their special moments!
Gloria Mesa is the utmost photography professional. From arriving early the day of my wedding, to staying a bit beyond the agreed upon contract time in order to capture my important wedding moments including cutting the cake and our first dance.She was easy to work with, knows exactly the kind of shots she wants, and genuinely enjoys taking wedding photos which reflects in every aspect of her work. I am so glad I used her and everyone that sees my photos thinks they are the best!
Choosing Gloria to be our wedding photographer was the best decision we made in the wedding planning process. We wanted our photographer to be patient and understanding of all the stresses that come along with a wedding. We wanted her to have reasonable prices, flexibility on coverage, dependable, and most of all fun to work with. We got ALL that and more with Gloria! Working with her was not like working at all, it was very comfortable and she seemed more like an old friend that we had known for years. I highly recommend her to anyone I know and have already suggested her to friends. I cant wait to have babies so I can have Gloria photograph them. Her work is truly amazing!
I am sooo happy to have found Gloria! Her work is beautiful! She has gives attention to detail. I loved ALL of the pictures she took! Her pictures captured every single moment! She was helpful, on time, and attentive.
I am so happy I found her, Our pictures are FANTASTIC, she is very creative and talented. Our pictures came out perfect. I couldn't be more happy. Thank you Gloria.
Gloria was recommended to me by my sister. My sister had been in another wedding where Gloria was the second photographer. My finance (now husband) and I took a look at here images on line and her style fit with exactly what we wanted. We were able to meet with Gloria later that week. She showed us multiple wedding books of her pictures, explained how she liked to work, and gave us a price sheet. During our first meeting I knew she was the photographer I wanted. She was very easy to talk to and get along with. She put me at ease, which was great since she would be with me throughout my wedding day and stress is not what you need. Also I wanted to make sure that I felt comfortable if this person was going to be taken pictures of me as I was getting my dress on. It was very easy to get a hold of her through email or phone throughout the whole process. All of our wedding pictures came out great. On the day of the wedding, she showed up ready for business in her suit and camera in hand. We also had an additional photographer through Gloria, that also took excellent pictures. I admit that I was a little lazy and busy so I actually just finished up my wedding album and finalized it with Gloria almost a year after I got married. She still keep in touch with me just make sure we were doing well and to let us know that she had not forgotten about us.
We did look at other photographer, but one of the things that we did not like is we did not get photos. You would have to buy all the photos through that photographers site. Gloria supplied us with 2 DVDs of all our pictures, so we could print as many as we want.
You cannot beat Gloria if you want a great photographer for any occasion.
Having Gloria take our wedding pictures was such a good experience. She knows what she's doing and knows how to really capture the moment. We felt so comfortable with her. She is the best!
I had a great experience with Gloria Mesa photography. I was so pleased with Gloria's personable demeaner and her passion for photography. The quality of her work is excellent because she loves what she does. I wanted to find a photographer who handled the business side in professional manner as well as the ability to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera with Gloria I received that and more. I recommend Gloria because she is one of the best I've encountered.
"Gloria did an amazing job photographing my wedding on August 8, 2009. I would highly recommend her services as she took beautiful photos and was very reasonably priced. Gloria was a pleasure to work with and I now consider her our "family photographer"."

I hired Gloria for my wedding day. We have kept in touch over the years and she is one the most talented, kind and professional photographers in the business - and I've worked with a lot of photographers! To work with Gloria is always joy and something very special as she has an amazing spirit and way of making you feel good about yourself.
I had the pleasure to meet Gloria on our bride Anika, only to see her a week later on our bride Alyson. I can't say enough about this photographer. Shes so talented, and a pleasure to be around an work with. Can't wait to work with you on many more glorious brides.
When working with Gloria, one of the things that stood out to me was her dedication to her client. I've never seen a photographer work as hard as Gloria. She took photos all the way to the end of the wedding. Even then she still had a smile on her face. She didn't have that "I'm ready to go home" look. When I finally got to see Gloria's work, I was so impressed. Her company is one of the company's I use as a referral. When showing my portfolio, her photos are the ones that are complimented on the most. Not only is she an awesome lady, but she does fabulous work. I recommend hiring Gloria Mesa Photography for your next event.
Gloria's work is beautiful and classic. Her personality is warm and easy-going. A stellar combination for successful event.
There is a big difference between taking a photo and capturing a moment.
Gloria does both and does it with a style that isn't cheesy or feel posed.
She'll take photos that reflect your style and create a photo book you'll actually want to open again and again for years to come!
Gloria is an absolute joy to work with. Her ability to capture special moments is amazing. Her images are unique and provide you with memories that last a lifetime. Gloria is always my first suggestion to brides who are looking for photographers.
