Hey! So Wedding Wire usually writes these bios for us in the third person, and i think thats kind of silly, because I want you to know me for ME and not what a company is writing of me. Great! So that out of the way. So, im Antonio Burruel or Tony, I sometimes play guitar and I usually get stuck singing Disney songs for my son. I went to art school for 3D animation and things didn't really pan out. I stumbled into photography when someone charged me $350 for headshots, and they were terrible and I told myself if they could do it, I can definetly do it. aaaaaand here we are. I actually started by shooting a friends wedding by mere chance, and actually began to fall in love with it, which is why I stick to shooting weddings. Im also very grateful when my wedding couples also hire me to shoot their maternity, newborn and family photos.
As you can see, im pretty informal, im not a business man so dont expect an incredibly written bio of how amazing I am as a photographer. Im super casual, I love Anime, especially Dragon Ball & My Hero Academia, and thankfully my son is into it too, so we watch anime together. :)
January 31st 2019 was my last day at my full time job at Loma Linda University Medical Center where I went all in on Weddings. and its been an amazing past year so many amazing people im thankful for during this process.
IN CONCLUSION lol, Thank you. For stopping by, for reading, for sending that "request a quote" button that sends us all a generic email, lol I appreciate all of it, because at the end of the day, you are helping me feed my son, you are helping me buy him clothes, take him to museums and Barnes & Nobbles (Which he loves) so again. Thank you. Talk to you soon? :)
need something even more customized? Let me know. :)

Alright let’s break this down!
ONE. I know all my couples have to pay everyone and everything before the wedding date… thats a lot of money. The average wedding costs anywhere from $15k to $32K.
TWO. YOU have to pay all of that before your wedding date. That’s crazy to think about. I. Want. To. Ease that for you.
THREE. So here’s what I try to do for my couples. The retainer amount IS Separate from the package amount. Every amount you see, add $200 to that for your total.
WHY TONY? This feels expensive, WHY are you doing this to us?…. I know I know, but trust me im about to blow your mind. Most every photographer requires 50% down as a non refundable retainer. Well for me, I make the whole package amount refundable. Say you hire me, we shoot your engagement session and you hate the images and you want to fire me. Great, I’ll refund you any payments you’ve made. Say you have to move your wedding date because of a family emergency, or a bad car accident (which has happened to one of my poor bride & grooms) and im not able to accommodate the new date, I will refund you everything you’ve paid. The only amount I keep is the $200 retainer. Everything else is Refundable. So the way the payments work is this: $200 to book, 1/3 of package amount due at the engagement session. 1/3 due at the wedding day. 1/3 due when everything is ready to be sent to you.
BUT WAIT!…. THERE’S MORE!….
IF the whole 200 Retainer puts a bad taste in your mouth, I have an option for you…
Pay 50% of the package amount as the non refundable retainer & pay the rest of the 50% at engagement session and your total will be what you see as the package amount. Everyone wins. :)

Take a chance and book him, I 100% guarantee that you won't regret it!
If there was only one thing I had to say about any of my vendors, it would be that I lucked out booking Antonio for my wedding and engagement shoots. I was, hands down, the most satisfied with him whether it was the quality of his photos to his professionalism and character. My husband (then fiance) and I were already over the moon when we saw how our engagement photos turned out, they were phenomenal! We had such a fantastic time shooting with Antonio. There was an air of familiarity that made him so easy to talk and open up to. We had no problems being ourselves and that showed in our pictures and everyone who saw the photos could tell. What I loved was that he was able to bring out what was already there and capture those moments; people would tell me that they never knew I could laugh so much or be that happy. Based on the engagement photos, I was already sure I would be satisfied with the wedding photos.
We hadn't intended on having an engagement shoot and had originally booked Antonio for the wedding, but his package deal was just one of a kind so we booked the standard package that included the engagement shoot. The price for the engagement shoot AND the wedding was unbelievable! Usually just wedding ceremony/reception alone would cost thousands more than that. He's very thoughtful towards his (potential) clients and explains things very clearly on his bio.
Come the wedding day, of course nothing ever goes according to schedule and that was the same for me especially since I didn't have a wedding planner. I was a bit worried since set up was going slower than I had imagined and I had to help out with flowers and decorations, instead of going straight into First Look like I'd originally intended. But Antonio was a VP, he just went with it and photographed my fiance and I while we were setting up and he even asked how he could help! Super thoughtful. And eventually, we managed to get First Look and Bridal Party photos done before the ceremony, which I hadn't thought was possible. He went through the whats and hows very efficiently and we finished our photos with enough time to wait before the ceremony. Antonio really goes above and beyond, searching for spots he can fill to make things run more smoothly, which isn't his job but he does it anyways!
To anyone looking at his reviews, I can't say that you will regret it if you don't book him (because I'm sure there are a lot of great photographers out there), but I can 100% guarentee that you WILL NOT regret it if you book him. For the quality of work, his professionalism, and all around being such a great guy, at the price he charges, I am beyond amazed. I feel as if I paid at least $3000+ for his services so when I say I feel like I lucked out, it's really such an understatement.

Antonio took 2 people who normally get so awkward and stiff in front of a camera and made us look amazing as we do it all the time. Our engagement photos came out so beautiful. He made us laugh naturally and was fun to work with. Can’t wait for him to do our wedding.Sent on 03/18/2021

Amazing (so far)
We liked Antonio immensely from the moment we met him. Although our wedding is in 2020 we are confident he will capture every meaningful moment of our special day. Antonio’s professionalism, attention to detail and passion is what steered us to pick him to be our photographer. Also he is “hands on” from the beginning to the end product (editing) matches our mindset. We highly recommend Antonio 💙💍🎂💐Sent on 06/09/2019
