Meurer Image Photography
WOW! Our photos were more than amazing, the services were fantastic, the prices very reasonable, and the photographers are such a joy to work with. They were with us the entire wedding day as well as taking engagement photos at multiple locations beforehand. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for top notch photography service!!!
I cannot say enough about Andrew, Melanie, and Chris from Meurer Image, who photographed and videod our wedding on 7/14/12. From the minute we first met them, we knew we loved them. They make you feel so comfortable; they're extremely friendly, helpful, informative, and ORGANIZED (that was a big thing for me). They always responded to my emails and phone calls within a day.
On the day of the wedding, Chris and Melanie came to my room on time (in fact, we were running way behind so they had to patiently wait for us with no complaints). Andrew actually went go-karting with my fiance and his groomsmen to capture the moments there! During the wedding and reception I never even noticed they were there but they seemed to always be at the right place at the right time.
We just recently got back a small clip of our video and the photos and all I can say is WOW!!!!!!! I am SO impressed. We weren't sure we were going to do the video package but are SO thankful we did.
We're still waiting on the photo album but can only imagine that will be spectacular as well. I HIGHLY recommend Meurer Image Photography to ANYONE needing a wedding photographer. They are TOP-NOTCH!!!!!!! They go above and beyond!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where do I begin? Almost one year ago Meurer Image took the most beautiful photos and videos from our wedding. From the moment I met with the Meurer family, I was impressed with their professionalism. I loved that it was a family buisness and that I had all three family members there with us on our wedding day. They were always very accessible by email or phone and were very flexible with our face to face meetings since I was planning a wedding on Coronado Island from Minnesota. They have so much knowledge and experience about all the "hot spots" to take photos. When we found out it was going to rain on our wedding day, they were so flexible and understanding with the conditions. They even came up with some fun ways to take photos inside. And allowed us to take some pictures outside in a light drizzle. Melanie took the lead with organizing each photo and I was very impressed with her ability to keep our large and fun wedding party (16)!! It was so neat having two photographers and a videographer to capture every moment. Especially because the moments go by so fast that you need the photos and videos to remind you of those special memories. The photos and videos were edited so perfectly, I couldn't be happier. Our professional photo album is so beautiful and I know will last a lifetime. Since we weren't able to do engagement photos, they gave our parents each a photo album which was great! If you are a bride and are looking for a photographer/videographer for your wedding...do not look any further as Meurer Image Photography is THE BEST photographer in Southern California. I am a 110% satisfied customer and consider them apart of our family now! :)
I can't even tell you how impressed I am with these guys! I didn't even notice them at the ceremony yet they got AMAZING pictures of the whole thing! The bride and groom photos are out of this world, super creative and presonal. None of them look forced. I couldn't have them happier with the outcome. They were so quick to answer any of my questions or concerns via e-mail or phone, and were more than happy to meet up with me when needed. Bottom line- I would have paid DOUBLE if I had known just how good these pictures were going to come out! You would be stupid not to have your pictures done by Meurer Photography!
Meurer Image Photography is fantastic! They were highly recommended to me by a friend and I could not be happier with the outcome!
Andrew, Chris and Melania came to the hotel early in the morning to capture me getting my hair and make-up done and they were so friendly and pleasant throughout the entire day! They came completely prepared, professional and flexible! All of my guests loved the photographers and after seeing all the amazing photos and video, they were even more pleased with the fact that I had hired them! They went above and beyond all of my expectations (money VERY well spent)! I would highly recommend them to all of my friends/family and anyone who is looking to hire photographers!
Andrew, Melanie, and Chris from Meurer Image captured our wedding reception on 10/17 (yesterday) at the Scripps Forum in La Jolla. I had to jump online immediately to give them the 5 stars they deserve (I wish I could give more)! We haven't seen all of the photos yet, but they were awesome throughout the entire day. It was great having three photographers there to capture every angle, and most importantly they made it fun!!!
We had great posed shots, and also some great spontaneous or funny shots that really fit our personality. They spent time getting to know our venue well before the wedding to understand the lighting and angles. They are true professionals!!!!!!
They came early in the morning for make-up photos and stayed late into the night to capture the entire celebration. They were flexible and did whatever was asked of them (and more). Not to mention, their pricing was really reasonable.
Andrew, Melanie, Chris - Thanks for everything!!!
We really liked our photographers. They were on time, and thorough. Andrew, his wife, and their daughter were present and were consistently on the move - snapping pictures of everyone and everything. My sister asked them to take a few extra pictures and they were flexible and responsive. They were also very responsive via email and phone. We cant wait to get our pictures!
The Meurers are amazing!! Don and I feel so fortunate to have worked with such wonderful photographers...and their packages/prices are great!! The Meurers were genuine and gracious, yet still professional. We even heard from the guests at our wedding how great the photographers were in working with them for photos and capturing moments without being intrusive. I appreciate them maintaining communication with me prior to the event, which helped make my planning much easier. And, what a blessing it was to have their attention, three of them, and their services All Day, nothing felt rushed or skimpy from their end...it's rare to find photographers willing to work for you for an unlimited amount of time that do outstanding work for such a great price. Thank you!!
Very professional with amazing pictures! We couldn't have asked for a better set of photographers! Anyone who is to hire them would never regret it!
This may just have been our favorite vendor. We LOVED working with Andrew, Chris and Melanie. They were fantastic photographers, did an awesome job shooting our engagement, helping us to feel natural in front of the camera and prepping us for the wedding day at which time they documented everything beautifully without being in the way or overly aggressive with our time. Melanie even helped me to bustle my dress, full service all the way around! The prints from them are beautifully edited with amazing finishes, printed on beautiful paper and their wedding photo books capture the day magically. Truly professional wedding photographers, they know what they are doing and will give you classic photos that you will cherish for years to come. We did engagement session a few months before the wedding, and this really was important in starting the relationship -- highly recommended! Great turn around on getting the images back to us too (even during their busiest season!)
Loved the engagement photos! I was also pleased to have 3 photographers at one part of the wedding. I cant wait to see the photos, but I'm sure they'll be great.
The Meurers were a great choice to photograph our wedding! They are definitely a great value! We had 3 photographers there for the entire wedding day--looking back there really isnt any part of the day I wished they had been able to cover that they missed. And the pictures were gorgeous. They were really great to work with and I definitely recommend them!!!
Meurer Image was amazing, very professional but personal at the same time. I was amazed at how beautiful our photographs were. I would definately recommend them in the future! Thank you!!!
Chris, Andrew and Melanie were fantastic! I didn't really know what I wanted to do until the day before the wedding, but they totally worked with me and provided us with exactly what we wanted. They were with us all day and had great ideas for all the pictures. Most importantly, the pictures came out great!
Thank you so much for all the pictures! You guys made our wedding album and wedding phictures looks soo great! Everybody in our families and friends keep complimenting our photos because they just look so beautiful! We are very greatful to find such good photograpers like you guys. You guys are awesome! Thanks again for everything and we will definitely recommend you guys to anybody of our friends or family who will get married in the future. Again you guys are the best!

Working with Meurer Image Photography has been an absolute dream. From consultation through preparation, from the wedding day until the last book was delivered, the Meurer family worked with the utmost professionalism and flexibility. They started by meeting with us and answering all our questions with patience and understanding. They were easy to reach via phone or e-mail and always responded with assistance and honesty. As we prepared for the biggest day of our lives they made us feel as though we were working with trusted friends and when our big day arrived, everyone involved felt comfortable and at ease. When small problems arose with flowers or locations that could have greatly affected the photos, the Meurer's experience and professionalism kept our big day running smoothly. During the ceremony and reception, it was as if they weren't even there, even though they captured every smile, every tear, and every moment that made our day so special. When all that was left of our day was the wonderful memories, the Meurers provided us with a collection of photos that captured not only the people involved in our day, but the feelings expressed and the moments shared. They were patient, understanding, and flexible as they worked and reworked our album so that it was exactly what we wanted. We couldn't have asked for more enjoyable people to work with or a more perfect end result. I would recommend Meurer Image Photography to anyone looking for excellant customer service and photos to cherish always.
Capturing the intimate and once-in-a-lifetime moments of our wedding was one of our top priorities as we were planning our July 2009 wedding. We received everything we wanted and more!
From our engagement photos on the beach, to our outdoor wedding Chris, Andrew, and Melanie were there to make us feel comfortable and confident in their services. Their level of professionalism and all the special features they have to offer (save the dates, wedding albums, thank you cards, etc) made a lasting impression on us after having met with several other wedding photographers. They were simply the best.
They were respectful and unobtrusive at the salon when we were getting ready, with our family and closest friends during the ceremony and reception, (helped us to keep track of time and stay on schedule!) and really made us feel special as a newly married couple.
In addition, their expertise, creativity, and keen eye for photography are so unique. Once we got our photos, we were incredibly happy and so impressed. We will always cherish the beautiful and unforgettable moments of our most special day. We will be forever grateful and are so excited that they have been appropriately named "one of The Knot's 'Best Of Weddings 2010 Wedding Photograpers'"
Chris and Andrew were AMAZING!! They actually did my sisters wedding first and impressed me so much that I booked them that day. They are so professional and my pictures were beautiful! The best part that impressed me the most is that they blend right into the wedding, are not intrusive at all, and let you as the bride and groom call the shots of what you want. I would recommend them to anybody who is looking for photographers that will capture all the wonderful memories of your wedding day in the most beautiful way.
I couldn't recommend them any higher. Family business...husband (Andrew), wife (Chris) and daughter (Melanie) all come out to make your day even more wonderful. They each handle a part of the photography stuff...in our case, the wife took care of all the behind-the-scenes shots like shoes, cake, flowers, centerpieces, and probably a lot more. The husband and daughter took all the couple shots, bridal party shots and all the other posed family shots. They were extremely hard-working.
Unfortunately for them, family and friends were insanely competitive with them in taking photos of us. At any given moment there were 6 people taking pics on their digital cameras and Andrew and Melanie were very patient and extremely courteous with everyone and anyone. It was truly remarkable that they didn't lose their tempers, and for that, they should be commended.
As far as prior to the wedding, they were very diligent in contacting us to make arrangements for our engagement photos (which we never took thanks to our being slackers). They worked with us to make an arrangement for our photo package in its stead.
Their photo books are truly gorgeous to look at...and the photos are beautiful. Can't wait to see them!
They created a package specifically tailored to our budget and needs. They always responded quickly whenever we had questions and they were very accurate with estimations of time and money. Beautiful work and very original!
WOW!!!! I absolutley loved Meurer Image and I am soooooo glad I hired them for my wedding. They did such an awesome job at our wedding. We got three photographers instead of two(for no extra charge) and they were there all day. I didnt have to pay for extra hours like I saw with other photographers. They were willing to do anything they could to make me feel comfortable and make my day go smoother. Our pictures from the wedding were so amazing, they got every possible shot you could think of. We ordered our thankyou cards through them so they had pics from the wedding on them and they look so beautiful, I have recieved so many compliments from my guest on how pretty the pictures where. I cant wait to see our wedding album they created when its done being printed. Make sure to meet with this company if you havent booked a photographer for your wedding. It will definetly be worth it.
Engagement pictures were great. Just a few posed shots and the rest were natural and fun! Their team dynamic is stellar and we look forward to our wedding day! They always answer emails in less than 24 hours and are really flexible. So wedding day has come and gone. I was so impressed with their timing. They were early and shot their hearts out. We've seen a few pictures and they are great...can't wait for the rest. We had one photographer show up at the hotel to take pictures of the preparation and then the other 2 photographers were at the Grand Tradition. All 3 actually stayed all night...what a value!! They were all so professional and you never noticed them in your face but you knew they were all around getting shots of everything!
We had our engagement pictures done with Chris and Andrew and it was a lot of fun. They used every possible inch of space at the beach and surrounding park. Their team dynamic is stellar! They always answered emails within 24 hours and were really flexible. They showed up early on the wedding day and stayed all night log. We actually ended up with all 3 photographers for the night (what a value)! We've seen a few pictures and they are great so far...can't wait for the rest! They were all professional and you never noticed them in your face but you knew they were all around shooting their hearts out!
This is a family owned and run company whos focus is on making the client happy. I love every picture that they took (we might have not smiled right, but if we would have, it would have been cute)! They are very felxible and confident in their work. They have been taking pictures for years and are booked for about every weekend.
These are the best photographers. They are really comfortable to be around and they were with us all day. I usually don't like pictures of myself, but, I was really pleased with the results.
Hi Chris & Andrew!
We are so amazed and delighted with your work! It was so much fun to relive our wedding day through your pictures. Thank you!
Chris and Andrew

I will check your website to see the update, that would be so cool. and I will recommend you to anyone I know that needs a good photographer.

Dear Chris and Andrew,
Kevin and I can't thank you enough for all you've done for us. We really love the albums and we know that our parents are going to love it too.

We also appreciate everything you've done for us. Thank you both again for everything and also tell your daughter thank you from the both of us.

We absolutely LOVE IT!! We were in Vegas over the weekend but tomorrow we give the books to our parents and then we get to start showing off our book! If this doesn't bring youguys business, nothing will. Explaining talent is hard, showing it off is easy! You guys did an amazing job. Thanks for making our special day last forever :) We hope that we can give you more business in the future with our family and friends. Thank you again.
We wanted to let you know we received the album and we love it. Thank you all very much for all the wonderful work you guys did. The pictures were awesome and the album was beyond what we expected.

We also loved the album, what a great concept...we love the way all the pictures are all put together. Thanks again, and I hope you all are doing great!
Hi Andrew, Chris and Melanie,
They are so beautiful, and we are incredibly pleased! Greg and I have said time and time again that we were so lucky to find our photographers! You are the best! You have been very professional and helpful, and we just are 100% delighted with how beautifully you captured our perfect day! Thank you again.
Meurer Image is a great company to work with. I love the fact that they are a family that works together. Very organized and always ready whenever they were needed to start shooting. You really do need a professional to capture your special moments and this is the company!
We just love the Meurer Image Family, they are so talented and professional. Their photos are able to capture the beauty of Balboa Park and the love shared between a bride and a groom. We look forward to working with them again soon!
Meurer Image Photogarphy are great to work with. They have been the photographers for some of the weddings held at the Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club. They capture beautiful pictures that we have featured on our blog!
The best way for me to describe Meurer Image Photography is to say "they see photography as an art" to capture the essence of your wedding day! The highest quality photography that I have seen! Inspirational, top quality photography. Don't look anywhere else! They are great! Be sure and check-out their website and you will see what I mean. Without a doubt! They have my highest endorsement!
Always a pleasure to come to a ceremony at see these great people on the scene. They know how to work around a ceremony in style and truly capture the moment as it unfolds!
Awesome and really easy tow work with photographer. I hope we have a lot more opportunities to work together in the future.
As a professional videographer, I sometimes encounter situations where a photographer feels they are more important than I am. That is not the case when working with Meurer Image Photography. I've had the pleasure to work with Andrew and his team at a number of events since I met them last year and every time is a joy. They are professional, courteous and extremely helpful in making sure both they and I get the shots we want. Thank you Andrew, Chris, Melanie & Jessica. I can't wait till we work together again.
Its always a pleasure to work with Andrew, Chris and Melanie. Their photos are amazing and they so easy to work with.
Nothing better than a family of photographers that work together! They are professionals, attentive, creative and more! As a Makeup Artist, it is great when you get to see the beauty that are captured on the photos. Meurer Image Photography did that and more! I would definitely recommend them to my clients.
Chris and Andrew are a pleasure! I've worked with them on several occasions, and they always are professional, produce great work and have a smile on their faces. All of my clients that have worked with Meurer have been thrilled with the results, and so have I!
Meurer Image Photography does great work and they are very professional.
A family of photographers... I LOVE IT! Thanks to Chris, Andrew, Melanie and Jessica, for making my job easier. Always ready to go when I need them to be. Plus great communication the whole day. I look forward to working with them again very soon!
Meurer Image is at the top of my list to contact whenever anyone is looking for a photographer. Their photographs are breathtaking! Their prices are very affordable for what they offer..trust me I did my research. Andrew, Chris and Melanie are the best in the business.
Chris, Andrew , Melanie and Jessica are an awesome family of photographers. We love working with them.They are friendly, easy going and creative. Their beautiful works says all the rest!
My wife and I have worked with Meurer several times and it is always a positive experience. The difference between working with vendors you are familiar with that are great at what they do is huge and makes our day so much easier
Meurer Image are great photographers! I've had the pleasure of working with them on several weddings. Not only is their photography great, but their personalities allow other vendors like myself to easily work alongside with them. You won't be disappointed hiring them for your event. Very creative and professional. I highly recommend them to anyone!
To get the best wedding photos, schedule the time to take them. It seems so simple yet many couple's wonderful plans to take most of their photos before the ceremony go awry. Suggestions to make sure this doesn't happen to you:
-Hire a Wedding Coordinator.
-If you don't have a coordinator, make sure to confirm the time your make up and hair stylist are arriving. Confirm how many people will be needing their services so you have enough time to get everyone ready. Remember the Bride comes first, it is her day. Too many times the Bride is saved until last so her make up will be the freshest. Great idea unless you are running late!
-If the Bride is getting ready with the rest of the girls, make sure one of them fields questions and keeps things moving along.
-Make sure family and bridal party know when and where they need to be. Some brides hand out the timeline and directions at the rehearsal dinner.
-Coordinate the timeline with your photographer to make sure they feel you have enough time for the photos you desire.
Keep in mind you are making an investment with your photographer to capture the images of your wedding day. Making sure they have the necessary time to do this should be important to you. Taking photos should be fun and not something done with a stop watch. However, your photographer is a professional and will do their best with whatever time is available.
