I believe in storytelling people, moments, love. When you get your photos back from your wedding day, I want you to feel the love that will only ever exist between the two of you. For every gorgeous bouquet photo, there should be a shot of laughter. For every ring and centerpiece picture, there needs to be a shot of grandma dancing with the bride. And for every catalog-Best-of-The-Knot-cover photo, there has to be the beautifully imperfect shot of the two of you laughing at a moment that you'll remember forever.

To kick this off - Karl Verkade is one of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever encountered in my life. We found Karl through some internet searching and setup a meeting, and instantly we knew we had found a match. He has an incredible portfolio and wowed us with his creativity and personable nature. We are an easy-going couple, and knew that Karl was the right fit for us and the goals of our wedding.
Starting with the engagement photos, which we took at the replica first In-n-Out drive through in Baldwin Park, we knew we were in for a treat when we saw the prints all edited and finished - such wonderful stuff! He was really getting into the shoot, and made us feel comfortable, willing to run into traffic to get a picture!
Our wedding day was 3 days ago, and we had Karl and his assistant Laura for 7 hours - they ended up arriving early and staying long enough to get the final shots of the night, with great lighting setups and a good feel for the venue. They were energized to be involved, which was so nice because they really blended in, did not crowd or push anyone, and let their photos happen organically as the night progressed.
We are so excited to see the final work that Karl produces, and I can assure you, you are getting a trust-worthy and imaginative person in Karl Verkade. Karl - thank you so much for making our engagement and wedding so special. You exceeded every expectation we had for the process and the day-of shooting. As I sit here recounting the memories, I can rest easy knowing you captured them to the best that my mind can imagine.

Karl was our photographer for our museum wedding in April 2018. From the moment we met him, we knew he was going to be one of our favorite wedding vendors in this crazy process of planning a wedding! He was efficient, responsive, professional, and fun to work with. Though we are not naturals in front of the camera, our engagement photos came out beautifully and surpassed our expectations. Our wedding took place in a venue that is probably difficult to photograph in (dim lighting, grandiose backgrounds) but we have no doubt that Karl will deliver photos of the highest quality. He is a master of his trade and is extremely pleasant to work with to boot. Don't think twice. Book him early as his immense popularity will likely make him more and more difficult to secure.

We found Karl on Wedding Wire, and after visiting his website and seeing the galleries of weddings that he shot, we fell in love with his work. After receiving our engagement pictures from him, we were that much more excited to see the work that he would do for our wedding. Thank you Karl for your amazing work!
