About Drew Bird Photography

I love telling stories with photographs. It's my raison d'être. I've photographed weddings and other projects all over the world and in nearly every state across the USA.

When not travelling for a photo project I live in Oakland, California with my sweet-lady Zoom and a little lemon tree in the backyard. We love music and dancing; cooking food with friends; growing vegetables in our garden; hiking in redwood forests; and surfing + playing in ocean waves.

I'm a photojournalist at heart and when I photograph a wedding celebration I aim to capture authentic, real expressions. I create artistic images in a natural and documentary style. If you want your wedding photos to embody the energy, passion, character and love of you and your family and friends, lets chat more.

If you love photographs that express genuine personalities and you find most staged wedding photography to be 'just a little cheesy' - I'd love to hear from you.

Of course, I also love to create artistic portraits, photos of landscapes, architecture, and decor. They're all important aspects of your story. But, a majority of the images we create together will be unscripted, real, authentic, organic and journalistic.

In addition to weddings, I also provide photo storytelling for a wide range of clientele: from magazines and documentary films to corporations, non-profits, and universities. See more about my editorial and commercial photography here.

    Drew's talent in creating photo stories is obvious but I'm happy to report that he's also a one in a million person. He is the type of guy you might meet randomly on vacation and then become best friends for a week. This may not seem like an important consideration in choosing a photographer but I would argue that this trait is the most crucial component in the quality of Drew's work. He works diligently to integrate into whatever scene he's capturing in a way I can't quite recall witnessing in other photographers. We were incredibly pleased to see the rapport we had felt with Drew immediately extended to our guests. So not only did we love our photos, but many of our guests ended up with great keepsakes too.

    Given how many travel jobs Drew has, we were also impressed with the excellent communication that was provided in advance of our event. And the turn around on our project was well within what we were quoted.

    Drew is professional, talented, thoughtful, creative and incredibly easy to work with. I would highly recommend hiring him. Who knows, he might even throw a few surf tips in for free!

    My (now) husband and I got married on November 5, 2017, and we were so happy to have Drew Bird as our photographer. Drew is an amazing photojournalist who I've had the pleasure of working with before when the organization I work for was rebuilding our website (his portfolio extends far beyond weddings), so I had already seen first-hand how his calm and friendly personality could help people feel comfortable in front of a camera.

    Photography was very important to us as far as our wedding planning went, and we knew we wanted our pictures to tell a story of the day and how everyone was feeling, so Drew was the perfect fit. We greatly appreciated his willingness to work within our budget, and it was nice knowing we had someone of his caliber handling such an important part of our day.

    An added plus was that Drew was already familiar with our wedding venue (Deer Park Villa), which is known for it's beautiful redwood grove where we had our ceremony. It ended up being a gorgeous day, and he handled any challenges posed by the sun shining through and shadows from the trees with ease. He was also able to get photos from various angles even though he was working on his own that day - like he was in multiple places at the same time! He was really good at being stealthy and unobtrusive during the ceremony and reception (unlike our videographers who were unfortunately not as experienced), and it was really evident in the candidness of the photos of all of our guests - we loved it! Our whole wedding party had positive things to say about working with him.

    We would highly recommend Drew Bird Photography for any of your photo story-telling needs. Drew's professionalism and talent speaks for itself, and we'll forever treasure the photos that captured our memories from such a special day!

    We really enjoyed working with Drew! He's extremely professional, personable, and warm (and he's just a really cool guy). We felt very comfortable working with him, both leading up to our wedding and day of. Before the wedding, he was a huge help in planning the timeline. He gave us suggestions for how to structure the day so we'd have plenty of time for the photos we wanted. He also had creative ideas for where to do first look photos and some fun portraits before our ceremony. On the day of the wedding, Drew arrived on time and ready to go, despite the very early start to the day (we had a noon wedding, so the prep started early!). He took beautiful photographs -- in particular, he really captured the beauty of the redwood grove where we got married and the energy of the whole day. We have wonderful pictures of our family and friends during the ceremony and party afterwards. We'd definitely recommend him!
