Simply perfect experience :-)
Alan and his team were an absolute joy to work with on our special wedding day. Alan was professional, respectful and calming throughout the entire day, allowing us to truly be in the moment every step of the way and capturing the beauty of our love. We just recently received our wedding photos and are absolutely in love; we really feel like Alan captured our special moments so well! We will absolutely recommend Simply Perfect and use them in the future.Sent on 12/29/2020

They don't disappoint!
I had my wedding at Rancho Las Fuentes on May 22, 2021, and my photographer Alan was amazing. I had a meeting with the owner, Alan, to go over details and specifics before booking, and he was very attentive, wrote down things that were important to both of us, and brought up special details that we hadn't even thought of such as; sunset time. He showed us his photographers work and we chose our photographer from there. Very professional, answered all calls and texts in a timely manner, and even asked if we needed help with other aspects of our wedding planning. As our wedding day neared Alan called to tell us that our photographer had a family emergency and wouldn't be able to make it, but that he would be filling in. Boy am i glad that he did, our guests and Venue owners were impressed with his attentiveness, energy, and personality. He NEVER took a break, he captured so many beautiful shots both posed and candid. He stayed in constant contact with us all night, asked what we needed, made sure we ate/drank, pulled us for different photo ideas, and was so lively. He was excited for us, and it felt like he was our friend more than photographer, it's very obvious that he LOVES what he does, and he has an eye on where to pose & how to pose. We haven't received our photos yet but from what he has shown us that night and the sneak peak he sent, i know were going to LOVE them. Simply Perfect Images is a great choice and their prices are not crazy, they truly think of their clients. We have walked away from our wedding day with a new family member...Uncle Alan!Sent on 06/11/2021

Simply beyond perfection
Alan is the best in the business! Our wedding photos far FAR exceeded our expectations. His style appeased everyone from my classic portrait loving MIL to my candid, emotional self! He captured moments I get to relive again and details I missed in the whirlwind of the day! One of my favorite photos is of my dad giving me away, the emotion captured brings me to tears. Most photographers cannot truly capture the emotion that Alan did. Working with Alan was like working with family, having a COVID wedding was honestly a nightmare and I could not have done it without Alan or his lovely officiant wife (lovestoryvows). They (socially distanced) held our hand throughout the process & were even able to give wedding/vendor advice outside of photography/officiating which I really appreciated.
To the stressed bride or groom that is combing through countless portfolios, let me tell you: Your search is over, you’ve officially found the best wedding photographer!!!Sent on 04/27/2021

Before becoming a wedding officiant, I was a wedding planner for Simply Perfect Images. Simply Perfect is one of my favorite photography companies in Southern California! If should be, my husband is the owner and one of the photographers! Alan is an internationally award-winning photographer and the photographers that work with him are total professionals, responsible, amazing artists and lots of fun!!! They're so passionate about what they do! Love these people!!! As an officiant, it makes my day when I get to work with them. I always get these phenomenal photos for my portfolio and all of my couples just love their wedding photography!
I know the owners of Simply Perfect Images very well. Heidi and Allen are very friendly and have some great photographers and videographers that work for their team. They also offer very great pricing. I would encourage any bride to Contact them. - DJ Sota
