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 $300 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 mainly with 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 is my last day at my full time job at Loma Linda University Medical Center where im going all in on Weddings. So dont let me down my wonderful couples... oh yea. I try not to say clients, I call you my couples.
IN CONCLUSION lol, Thank you. For stopping by, for reading my nonsense, 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. :)

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

Awesome - Look no further
Antonio was the photographer for our engagement shoot and will be for our upcoming wedding in 2020. I am beyond pleased with how our engagement photos came out and I cannot wait to see what he produces from our wedding day! He edited every single useable photo and delivered all of them to us in such a short turnaround time which I super appreciated. In addition to his high quality work, Antonio is very responsive and professional. I highly recommend going with Antonio Burruel Weddings. You won’t regret it!Sent on 07/25/2019

Tony was very professional and friendly, I truly enjoyed our photo session with him. We were surrounded by people in the location we chose, yet he directed and posed us so we were comfortable and we truly cannot even remember the crowds. His work turned out so much better than I could have imagined, being as I was nervous about the day, I was so happy with the outcome. Thanks Tony.Sent on 07/12/2018
