When looking for a wedding photographer Anthony was one of the few who stood out to us because of the quality of his work, his photos have a certain look to them that we love. Since we were eloping photos were very important to us, because that was something we wanted to share with family. After looking at his website I decided to contact him, and there was no looking back after that! My husband and I are glad we hired him because he was so wonderful to work with. He's definitely professional, but more importantly to me he's very intuitive as a photographer and a person. He loves capturing the natural moments when taking photos and the results for us were beautiful pictures capturing us the way we are. There were also moments on our day where I needed help, ( I eloped and didn't have anyone to help), and Anthony noticed without me saying anything. He offered to help with little things that came up even though it wasn't part of his job and I'll always remember that. Since our wedding was literally just us, Anthony, our videographer, and officiant for most of the day, we got to hang out for a bit and I feel we got to know him a little more than we would have at a busier wedding. He's a genuinely nice person who cares for his clients beyond what he's hired for. Very cool guy, no regrets at all!Sent on 07/13/2018

By the time I found Anthony on wedding wire, I had already looked at 10-15 other photographers. Unsure of what I wanted, I knew exactly what I didn't want: wedding photos that looked like just any other wedding. As I clicked through the photos he posted, I felt the intimacy and closeness shared between the couples he photographed. I thought to myself, wow. This is some powerful sh*t. I had to know more. Upon arriving at his website, I became even more captivated. Through his photos and through his words, Anthony told me a story. He told me it was okay to break traditions, be different, because love is different all around. He also told me that he's not here to be my photographer. He's here first and foremost as a friend: a genuine and all-around nice guy. And finally, his photos (and perhaps not his words because he's too humble for this) let me know he had a special eye for creativity, emotion, and most importantly, love. That's when I knew--he was the one. My now husband and I had such a great time with him throughout the process. By the time the wedding rolled around, I felt like we were old friends just hanging out. And that's such a great feeling to have when your life is going 90 miles a minute on the day of your nuptials. The best part? He stayed and partied hard with us! :) We were his first Portland, OR destination wedding so I knew Anthony was a little nervous. But boy did he deliver. When I got our wedding photos, tears filled my eyes because he took me back. I literally laughed and cried as I scrolled through our photos one by one. I was in awe of his ability to capture moments and freeze them in the form of an image. He's going to fulfill the wedding photo dreams of so many more couples. Will you be so lucky to be one of them??Sent on 07/17/2016
Anthony Gauna Photography's reply:Diana!!! Wow. Reading this put me to tears. I'm literally at a loss for words. I don't know what to say other than, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

First off, Anthony was a joy to work with throughout the entire process. From the very beginning he was extremely professional, but was also very personable and genuine. This was important to me as I didn't really want strangers floating around during my big day. I don't like being the center of attention (hard not to be on your wedding day) and felt uncomfortable having someone I didn't know in my face all day with a camera. Anthony takes great pride in getting to know his couples ahead of time, and we had many Skype chats during the year leading up to the wedding. These were great to help me feel more comfortable when it came time to take pictures (he did our engagement & my bridal shots too) but it was also great to get to know Anthony. He really is great guy who just loves what he does. He's open to hearing your ideas and then puts his wonderful creative touch on things to make the pictures better than you could have imagined. He took the time to meet my family (it was a family affair for my bridal shots) and put up with my mom and aunt pestering him with photography advice. My mom didn't even know she had two cameras on her phone, much less how to use a professional camera! He took it all in stride and made the whole thing a blast. I was so happy to have chosen him as our photographer before I even saw a single shot of ours.... but then I did. And they were amazing. He captured my day perfectly. It was a rambunctious Mexican-Italian-Irish wedding, and he froze every raw, real, unfiltered emotion of the day, which is exactly what we wanted... pictures with personally and without a doubt Anthony delivered. 100%.Sent on 01/28/2016
Anthony Gauna Photography's reply:Holy crap Elizabeth! I got all sorts of butterflies in my belly and a bit teary-eyed reading this. Thank you so much for all the kind words. You have no idea how much I appreciate knowing that you guys fully enjoyed the process, getting to know me, and of course the photos. I'll be keeping in touch with you guys. I want to hear all about your living experience in Sweden! Cheers!

I've always been a huge fan of Anthony's work. He is creative, artistic, and captures intimate and beautiful moments. He's not just a photographer, but he's a storyteller. When my husband and I booked Anthony, we knew he would tell our story in ways we couldn't imagine. From every aspect of his booking & work, Anthony is kind, super funny, unique, and truly wants to be a part of your day. Never once does he feel like he's doing this for the "business" or for a "paycheck." He invests in his couples; he truly made us feel important. He was everything and more during our wedding! He fetched things/people, was kind to us and our guests, worked effortlessly and was pretty much a ninja (one second he was there, the next second he was across the room.) He was thorough, exciting, and he even "pop-locked-and-dropped" it with us on the dance floor. He told our story impeccably. Every detail was captured, every shot was emotional, every moment told the story of our day. When we got our pictures in, his talent allowed us (and our family and friends) to relive that day again to its fullest. I can't even count how many times our guests/family said, "Your photographer is amazing!" "His eye for detail is incredible." "I didn't even notice him taking that photo." He is loved by everyone, and he can work that camera. If you're looking for a boring photographer who wants a paycheck before a relationship, Anthony isn't for you. But if you're looking for a friend, a photographer, a storyteller, a someone who will literally get on the dance-floor to celebrate with you, Anthony is your dude.Sent on 09/11/2015
Anthony Gauna Photography's reply:Wow! Taylor... I'm speechless. Really, I am. Totally got teary eyed reading this and then laughed my ass off thinking about "pop-lock-dropping" with you guys. I told Amanda when I got back in town about that and she rolled her eyes. Lol. Seriously... from the bottom of my heart, thank you and Tony for making me feel so loved, lucky, and grateful for getting to do this as a job and for trusting me with your big day. It was incredible being a part of it all. <3
Samantha · Married on 05/14/2015
Our original wedding was postponed due to a family tragedy. When we re-scheduled, we decided on a tiny ceremony with just us and immediate family and realized we needed to find a photographer that would project that intimacy well in their work. We found Anthony very last minute, but he was surprisingly available and we LOVED his work! From the first contact to the last, Anthony was extremely professional, easy-going, and super nice. Our pictures are absolutely gorgeous, and I am so glad that we found him when we did! Anthony's work is excellent, and his personality makes it so easy to work with him - our wedding portraits were the first portrait session we've ever had and it wasn't awkward at all. Anthony met us at our favorite local park, and despite some terrible humid weather, the photos look like they were taken on a pretty day. My favorite part of our photos is that you can just SEE the love in them. It's so awesome to have these to look back on because they bring back all the emotions of the day :)Sent on 06/20/2015
Anthony Gauna Photography's reply:Once again, it was absolutely wonderful meeting you both and being able to be apart of your journey. Thank you for choosing and trusting me. Keep in touch!
Holly · Married on 05/02/2015
Anthony was incredible. His philosophy of photography is to really become friends with his clients and that makes the whole process so enjoyable. I never felt like I was worrying about the photography once we had chosen Anthony, unlike some other vendors I had. His contract and communication were so clear. His turn around time was SO fast and he gave us the best photos. I have said so much about him personally, but truly the photos were amazing and I'm so glad we went with Anthony. Our best day ever was documented perfectly and that's the point. You should definitely work with Anthony!!Sent on 06/08/2015
Anthony Gauna Photography's reply:Thank you so much Holly! I appreciate the kind words. You guys are so awesome and I don't ever see myself not keeping in touch with you guys. I'll keep you guys in mind whenever I'm in Austin to just hang out and grab a beer and of course talk photography and cameras with Bryan. :)
Sydnee · Married on 04/11/2015
Anthony was an amazing photographer and friend through out the entire process! He fulfilled all of our wishes and we had fun doing it. He has a true talent and it shows through his work. Our wedding day turned out perfect and Anthony played a huge part in it, we all danced the night away, and our pictures definitely shows it. So many people came up to me and said "your photographer is so awesome" "he is everywhere" "where did you find him" "I want him to be our photographer" I purchased the engagement and wedding 8 hour package and added the bridal shoot! Every single photo turned out perfect!! I highly recommend Anthony Guana!!Sent on 06/18/2015
Anthony Gauna Photography's reply:Sydnee!!! You and Jake were so frickin' awesome and I had a blast from start to finish with you guys. Your wedding is for sure going down as one of the most memorable weddings I've worked. I keep track of all the crazy fun one and you're got kicked up to m #1 spot. Lol. Seriously, it was a blast. Thank you for choosing me and trusting me! Don't be strangers! And if you and Jake are ever in San Antonio and wanna grab a beer, hit me up!

Anthony is fantastic!!! His style is so unique and that's what really attracted us to his portfolio. We planned our wedding long distance and he was extremely helpful and accommodating. The day of our wedding he was both professional and fun! I absolutely recommend Anthony to anyone looking for a wedding photographer...we plan on using his services for portraits in the future!Sent on 11/17/2013

We are so happy we hired Anthony at Tailored Filter to be our photographer! We loved that he did our engagement, bridal, and wedding photos for a fair price. All of our photos are stunning and we couldn't be happier. Anthony is professional, and he makes you feel like you're hanging out with an old friend, so you don't feel intimidated by the camera. His creative eye and ideas make for the best photos. Everyone at our wedding was so impressed with his skills, friendliness and professionalism, I had so many friends and relatives ask for a referral. He really goes above and beyond expectations and we love him for that. We will definitely be calling Anthony back for future photo sessions.Sent on 11/08/2013

Anthony did a fantastic job at my husband and I's wedding! He was all over the place catching every moment! Anthony always answered every email or text I sent and was very flexible with meeting times which was great because we live in Houston and our wedding took place in San Antonio!Sent on 07/13/2013

I cannot say enough about how great my experience with Tailored Filter was. First of all, the minute you meet Anthony he feels like an old friend. He's funny and cool and quirky and awesome. He's super responsive and flexible and he made sure we understood all the details of his photo delivery system, which I really appreciated. We had so much fun with him at the wedding and all the family and wedding party really enjoyed him. He's like a photo ninja, running all over the place and capturing all the great moments. I was shocked to see all the angles he captured at the ceremony when I looked at the pictures. I definitely don't remember him moving around that much! We received our pictures super quick (like, less than a month) and I'm thrilled with all of them. His work is gorgeous and I know we'll love looking at these pictures for the rest of our lives. Also, he's an amazing value. I researched a lot of photographers before I decided on Tailored Filter and many were asking at least twice as much for an 8-hour day and their pictures were not as good.Sent on 06/18/2013
I think the thing that sums up my experience with Anthony was the comments I got when my friends and family looked at the pictures. They all individually told me that the pictures perfectly captured the spirit and feeling of the wedding, which is the best thing I could have asked for!
