Renee was the best photographer I could have imagined. I was searching online after we decided not to go with the person who did our engagement shoot. We had meet with other photographers in person, but for one reason or another didn't go with. After seeing Renee's website and prices, honestly, I thought it was to good to be true. After speaking to him over the phone and talking it over with my fiance, we decided to take the risk and go with him. Our package included 2 photographers and 2 videographers for 10 hours, an album, a 15 min edited video, and a total of 3 printed pictures for the wall. He traveled to San Marcos for no extra travel charge. For all this, the price was what some photographers were charging for just 1 photographer and maybe an album. Our photos are PERFECT! We have beautiful and elegant portraits, and funny and goofy candid's. Seriously, I could go on and on. If you are still looking for a photographer, Renee and his team are the best you can find.

My husband and I loved our wedding and engagement photos by Renee! He always responded to us super fast (within a few hours), was very professional, and made us feel very comfortable around him. He took amazing photos that we have all over our home already! We received our wedding photos in just two weeks! He arrived earlier than was scheduled to both shoots and was a huge help on the wedding day! He was more than a photographer, he also helped with a lot of the coordination (talking to the music people, venue staff, etc) and getting people in there place, which was a huge help on that day! He is very talented and made our pictures look super gorgeous! We have received many compliments on our pictures! We would definitely rehire him and plan on getting him for next events in life (pregnancy shoot, kids bday party, etc)! Cynthia 03/04/2017
As a wedding planner I enjoyed working with Renee .The photos of my clients wedding beat my expectations. His work really captured the fun moments at their event. Beyond that it was an absolute JOY to work with him and his team from the very start. He was super friendly, helpful, professional, punctual, and fun every step of the way. Tal 11/05/2016
Renee and his crew were amazing! Very professional and on time. He was very creative at our pre wedding shoot. Pics turned out amazing. I would really recommend him for any events. He was very affordable and was very diligent with his follow ups. He was always responsive and reliable. Great crew! :-) Jonathan 11/05/2016
We warlmy recommend hiring Rene for pictures! We did a not planned wedding at the court house and Rene made our day extra special; the pictures came out great (he was more prepared than us almost). We didn't think you could find a wedding photographer in the LA area with such professionalism, flexibility and good pricing but now we know you definitely can! Thank you for everything Rene!

Renee was a great photographer for our wedding! He was flexible with the time of the ceremony changing, and also still able to fit us in even though I'd originally given him the wrong date! The photos were all of a high quality, nicely edited and posted online for us to view - and they came back to us very quickly as well. Renee always responded to our texts and emails very quickly. He was also able to work to our somewhat limited budget, but still do a fantastic and professional job. Happy to recommend him to anyone! John 10/07/16
Renee is awesome! We were able to schedule a photo shoot super last-minute and he was very responsive and flexible. He was also extremely good at putting us at ease and capturing those candid moments that are so hard to get when you know you're being photographed. I was impressed how quick he was at delivering the photos and, on top of everything, he was available for additional professional help afterwards. Anastas and Ryan
Renee is amazing. I took note of his emails, and decided one day during lunch to look at the website. I saw his online portfolio, and saw that he was a Veteran. Then, I saw great, great reviews on weddingwire.com, and I was sold (also we got a great price for what we wanted). My husband and I are also both Veterans, and our wedding was patriotic themed at a military installation, so I knew he would understand what we wanted. He got everyone to do great photos, and he always had a smile on his face. I'm so glad I chose Renee and M.A. Photography! – Tina 08/20/16
My fiancé calls me and says "hey we gotta book this guy...he's gonna give us a great deal but we gotta pay him in full by tonight or else its regular price." Having not even talked or met the guy I was super worried he was gonna be sketchy and take our money but WOW was I impressed with Renee. He's quick to respond to emails or calls (even if his auto reply says it'll be 24 hours it's generally less). The pictures have turned out amazing. There were more than enough images to select from. Even our guests talked about what professionalism they witnessed. He and his crew made our wedding day great. We got all the breakdowns we needed. He even captured pictures of the guests sitting in the chairs waiting for us before we walked down which is something I wouldn't have thought about needing. Some photographers are all up in your face snapping pictures while you're trying to have one of the most intimate moments with your wife at the alter but not Renee or his crew. We hardly even noticed their presence as they blended in with our family and friends. I know you're nervous about picking somebody to trust with one of the most important days of your life...but I'm vouching 100%...and he's already paid so I'm not even getting a discount for writing this ;-) – Matt 08/19/2016
Your wedding day is one lifetime event that can never be repeated. Finding the right photographer to capture every moment in time is incredibly stressful. I am so incredibly thankful to have found Renee and his team! Our engagement and wedding day photos were exquisite! I can't wait to get the album so I can relive that day over and over again!! I honestly cannot comment on how his team performs on posed pictures. Our wish was to capture candid moments. If he is half as good at posed pictures as he is capturing emotions, you will NOT be disappointed!!! When I view the pictures, the emotions captured on film immediately take me back to that exact moment in time, forever etched in my mind. Thank you Renee for your professionalism, impeccable communication, customer service, and talented eye. You and your team have forever etched the emotions and memories of our magical day into something tangible and special, ensuring we will never forget a single moment. – Jenell 07/30/2016
Renee is the best! He shot my sister's wedding and we've used him for our engagement party and engagement session so far. Every picture comes out stunning. So personable and easy to talk to. Would recommend him for everyone! – Keren 07/03/2016
We chose Renee to photograph our wedding. I am beyond pleased with the photos & video. He did an amazing job! He captured our personalities so perfect. Both in our engagement shoot & wedding day. Renee was great to work with. He's very professional, easy going and was always on top of things. He exceeded all our expectations. The pictures truly speak for themselves. So happy to have found him & would highly recommend him to anyone. – Elizabeth & Rene 06/17/2016
A wedding is exited, wonderful, and stressful event! It is imperative that the people you hire are trustful, full of integrity and professional. In addition, they need to provide services that are of the most impeccable quality.
M.A. Photography is such a vendor.
