    Enthusiastic, and personable photographer with experience and attention to detail

    Abel shot our wedding in 2018 on the O'Neill Catamaran in Santa Cruz, CA. The results were fantastic despite the challenging venue. We felt that the great outcome stemmed from Abel's relaxed and enthusiastic attitude. He's also quite personable which helped put us at ease for both the posed and candid shots. That was a game changer on the big day. I would definitely recommend Abel Soria Photography for anyone's engagement and wedding photos.

    Effortless Quality!

    My wife and I can’t say enough good things about Abel!

    We married at the mission at Santa Clara University. Abel has shot there before, so he knew the best times, locations and angles to get the best photos.

    The quality of his photos is outstanding. Everything is in focus, the composition is memorable, and his timing is impeccable. The church doesn’t allow flash, which makes the quality of his photos even more impressive.

    Abel is very amiable and personable; it felt like he was one of our friends that we invited. He was pleasant with all the staff and guests. He always had a smile and a joke which made guests feel at ease.

    We met with Abel three days before the wedding for a quick lesson on how to pose properly and to gameplan where we would take photos, the sequence they would be taken, etc. The posing lesson was invaluable (and easy). He also taught us some shorthand communication so that on the day of the wedding, he could simply make a discreet gesture and I immediately knew to tug my jacket down to get rid of the wrinkles. Smart!

    He also acted as a bit of a coach. There is a lot of action happening on the wedding day, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed, but Abel knew when to jump in and remind me to do something or advise us on what he’s seen done at other weddings. His experience contributed greatly to making our special day feel effortless and look seamless. My wife and I highly recommend him!

    Abel is an amazing photographer! My friend referred me to him. I am so glad she did! He is very knowledgeable in his work. He is reasonably priced compared to many of the other photographers we looked at. It was great to work with him from beginning to end. He helped me stay organized and on top of everything. It helped that he had done wedding photos at our venue freedom hall and gardens before. He look some great shots of us! I loved his photo technique. He even stayed over the time he was scheduled for to ensure he got all the photos we wanted. I loved that we were able to get wedding albums as well to share with our family. He took his time to go over each photo with me to put into our album and was able to make edits needed. It was challenging to pick 50 photos out of the many he took, however he was very patient while waiting for us to do so. He even gave us a beautiful picture to hang up on our wall. He is a very kind person! I highly recommend Abel for your next photographer!
