I’m not the type of person to speak ill of others but I have no choice. As a very angry distressed bride I urge you to not use Zagal Photography (Oscar Zagal) as your photographer. It has been a nightmare dealing with him and getting in contact with him. He does not return call, emails and there is not way to serve him court papers since the address he list as his business is fake!!! It took me almost 8 months to get my negatives from him and I still have not received my wedding albums and there is not way to get a hold of him.

Excellent on everything. We had a Sunday wedding in November and he really worked with us to provide discounts on his off season. He also rearranged the package so we only paid for what we wanted- and the team went above and beyond. He gave us our DVDs of photos 2 weeks after- just when he promised and we loved them. The only thing we are waiting on is the album, but as anyone knows that does take time- and it's already in the works.
Oscar is fantastic! We give him our highest recommendation. He is extremely professional, easy to get along with and very creative. We hired him for our wedding in June 2009 at the LA River Center and we are so happy with the results! He did amazing engagement pictures and really took the time with us to get comfortable before the wedding. On our wedding day, he showed up on time, stayed late and captured all of the wonderful moments from our wedding. We have so many pictures of us, as well as our family and friends that we are happy with. He also sent us our pictures very quickly after our wedding so we didn't have to wait long to see them. Book him before he fills up, you won't regret it!
Oscar Zagal did the photography for my son's wedding last March. He was there for most of the day and covered all areas of getting ready for the wedding. He had lots of ideas for different poses. The proofs came back quickly and we had lots of time to go through them and pick the best ones for our album. Once we did that, we received our album quickly and it was beautiful. The photos were printed very nicely and put in a good sequence. We are thrilled to have such a nice reminder of the wedding.
Oscar is great! Hire him! Photography was one of the first things we looked for and my husband, being an artist himself, was very picky so I left it up to him. He showed me Oscar's site (the underwater shots sold us) and we set up an appointment. Once you meet Oscar and he shows you his work in person, it's apparent how passionate he is about photography. He wants to get the best and most interesting shots. He was a lot of fun and very comfortable to work with.
Oscar was so wonderful. We just got our photos this morning and they were fantastic. Let's just say he made me look better than I thought I looked. :) He was easy to work with. Very laid back and a nice person all around. His packages are a little pricey but well worth it. He is a talented guy. He also stayed longer than was in the contract to stay. That really impressed me. Showed he actually cared and not just about money.
Oscar was great! He was a great person to work with. Very creative and our photos turned out beautifully. He responded promptly to my emails and phone calls and we got our photos and album very quickly. I forgot his assistant's name but he was a great guy too. Very nice and very professional. They did not get in the way at all at the wedding and did their job well.
Oscar Zagal of Zagal Photography in one word is "AMAZING". We booked Oscar about a year before our wedding day and since that day he has been a complete joy. His work is so amazing, please look at my profile to see his work. Oscar has such an incredible eye and we are so very happy and blessed with how our photos and Wedding Album turned out. We picked up our album about 4 days before Christmas, and let me tell you it was the best gift ever!!! The quality quality and workmanship is the best you can get. From our Engagement Pictures, Wedding Day, Wedding Album to our Highlight Video he created, everything was PERFECT! Anyone considering Zagal Photography, trust me you are in great hands. Oscar not only is an amazing photographer, but he's sweet, honest, and very responsive to any question I had. Thank you Oscar!!!!
Oh My Goodness is Oscar good!!! :) My wife and I were married in August, and I have to say that Oscar BY FAR was the BEST vendor we worked with. I told my wife after we first met Oscar that I would pay him in cash and not have any worries about the contract. He was very thorough before, during, and after the wedding. He is extremely creative and has a great eye for photography. He was able to capture the feeling of our wedding incredibly, and made sure his team was moving constantly throughout the afternoon/evening. He is very creative with the album and worked hard to ensure that my wife (and therefore I) was very happy with the results. I can't stress how good he is, and what a pleasure he is to work with. The first person I would recommend to anyone getting married is Oscar BY FAR.

PRELIMINARY REVIEW: Possesses the rare blend of artistry and professionalism. Oscar and Team were tireless, creative and such pleasure to work with throughout. Final/detailed reviews pending receipt of materials but attached is a preview of his work of our special day:
Yesterday, Christmas Day, we shared our wedding photo DVD with our families (even though they've seen it over 30 times! ) from our August wedding and we couldn't help getting all emotional again. My husband couldn't even keep from crying, Wow! I went on-line to see what other people thought of my photographer and looking at these reviews makes me feel great to see other brides as happy as I am with Zagal Photography. Well, I strongly recommend these guys for their talent, friendliness, professionalism and affordability. Happy New Year everyone!
I am also using zagal photo for my wedding. I greed his prices are vey reasonable and his photos are amazing, his website is the best I have ever seen. He took my best friend's wedding photos and she highly recomended him. I was at her wedding and the guy and his team were all over the place. Jessie (my fiance) and I, met him last week and were totaly imoress with his work and his studio it is really artsy and cool. We are really looking forward to take our engagement photos.
Oscar was a blessing for George and me. He got some amazing pictures of our wedding - this one is everyone's favorite! George and I ended up enlarging tons of pictures for our new house and every time someone visits us, they just love them! :D
Photography was one of the most important elements in my wedding. I first met with Oscar over a year ago. I loved his style, his flexibility and his personality. The day of the wedding they were all over. To tell you the truth I don't remember seeing them much but when I got the proofs back, I noticed that they were all over the place. I got pictures from angles that to this day I don't remember them being there. I highly recommend him to anyone out there that's wants a great photographer with excellent prices and packages.
The expertise that Oscar & his team of photographers brings to the table is one we never considered possible. It exceeded each & every one of our expectations going into our wedding, with the perfect blend of professionalism & sincere true consideration that you would only expect through a close friend or relative. Neither my wife nor myself would hesitate to HIGHLY recommend Zagal Photography to ANYONE that is considering a photographer for any of their most memorable upcoming events. Our wedding will always be something that we can look back upon & smile, & we are positive that a HUGE reason for that is because we opted to go with Zagal Photography for our photography needs. The angles, quality & overall experience is one that is impossible to match. Thank you so much for everything! We couldn't have asked for more.

My husband and I will forever treasure our wedding pictures thanks to Oscar Zagal and his team. We have looked at our photos countless times and still get emotional a year later. Oscar is extremely professional and thorough but he is also friendly and personable. We were very lucky to have him be part our our special day.
