Trent is an amazing photographer! He really captured all the special moments of our wedding. We are going to have a hard time choosing photos to hang and put in our book because they are all so good. We loved working with him and absolutely love the photos! If you choose ProImage, you will not be disappointed. Trent went above and beyond the day of and took his time with the editing. He is an expert in his field. Thank you, Trent!Sent on 07/24/2017

Trent from ProImage Weddings was wonderful to work with. He captured our day perfectly. It was nice to work with him and during the ceremony I didn't even notice him taking pictures. It was amazing. The weather wasn't 100% cooperative, but he just went with it and got all the shots I wanted and more. I would recommend him to anyone who wants amazing pictures. He worked with our budget and we couldn't be happier with him. Thank you so much for capturing our day for years to come.Sent on 01/18/2014

Her and I are both in film and television, so our standards for photography are probably higher than most. It was a daunting task for me looking through websites, blogs, recommendations and the maze of wedding advertisements. The task of finding someone who was capable of documenting our story was an uphill task.
Trent hands down delivered the most beautiful and storyesque photos I could have imagined. Each frame was better than the next. He looks at the day through a storied eye and captures the elegance and magic of those special moments you will cherish for a lifetime. The routine of basic posed shots even have a storied flair and Trent captures those moments of facial expression that say 1000 words. He captures those moments which will make you laugh 25 years down the road.
I know when we sit with our grandchildren and flip through photos they will capture the entire essence of our day.
Everyone who has seen his work has nothing but delight in the photos of our day. I can't say enough nice things about Trent's work.
You would be lacking to go elsewhere.

Trent was by far the most pleasant, professional, helpful, and amazing photographer. He took our engagement and wedding photos- the engagement photos were beautiful (people thought some of them were fake because of how good he captured the lighting!). Our wedding just happened this weekend so we haven't received those photos yet BUT I have no doubts they are anything but wonderful.Sent on 08/27/2013
From first contact I was very impressed with him- he worked within our budget, always immediately responsive, and goes above an beyond (sent me itinerary ideas and provided several helpful wedding tips). He also travels up and down CA so if you are not local but impressed with his work he can come to you. During the wedding he remained calm and patient as the schedule ran an hour behind and during all of the family photos. I recommend him to anyone who wants an amazing wedding photographer. Your experience will be stress free. : )

Trent really took time to get to know me and understand my vision prior to our wedding date. I live in another state, so our correspondence prior and post wedding was via phone and email. He was always very quick to respond and sent me updates on his own. He has great ideas for pictures and he shoots every detail! I have a wonderful collection because of his hard work and dedication to the day! Trent is easy to get along with and very professional. He offers a good mix of shots, so you're sure to have favorites! You will not be disappointed. He does beautiful work.Sent on 11/05/2013

Trent Buckle is an amazing photographer! I can't say enough how amazing my pictures are! I can't stop looking at all 1100 of them! They turned out simply amazing! He showed up early enough to capture all my detail shots and taking pictures of all the girls getting ready! He was a one man show that day but he captured enough to make most people think there was at least 2 photographers. His passion is evident in all the pictures he took of us. He did our engagement photos & all the wedding and I can honestly say that to get my husband to smile in as many photos as he did is QUITE impressive! Thank you Trent & I will most certainly continue to recommend you as one of my top vendors!Sent on 01/09/2013

Trent was amazing! When your guests remark at how nice, professional and great a job your photographers did.. you know you have chosen well. For months prior to our wedding, Trent worked with me on our wedding details, provided great communication, was very professional and very helpful in a number of other areas. My husband and I would highly recommend you hire Trent. He is the consummate professional and was one of the best choices we made for our special day.Sent on 10/02/2012

I first found Trent while searching the internet. He was prompt to respond and also followed up to answer any questions and to address any concerns. I was relunctant to make such a commitment, but once we started corresponding, Trent's glowing personality matched his work. We met Trent at his home. We, then, also got the priviledge to see where he glows the brightest, with his family. On our wedding date, not only did my Husband and I unite our families, but Trent became a member of ours and the light he carries shines in all our photos.Sent on 05/28/2012

Trent from ProImage Weddings was great to work with, provided amazing pictures and at a fantastic price, especially when compared with other wedding photographers in the area. He made great use of the grounds at the Santa Barbara Court house (ceremony) and Santa Barbara Inn (reception) as well as capturing some amazing pictures on the beach at sunset. We spent the most time looking for the best photographer we could find since the pictures are the best way to remember your wedding and we're thrilled that we ended up picking Trent and ProImage Weddings, one of the best wedding photographers in southern California.Sent on 04/20/2012

Trent with ProImage Weddings is the best wedding photographer you could ever ask for! He photographed my wedding last July at the ShoreCliff Gazebo and Ventana Grill, and what I can say in complete honesty is that Trent works magic. He manages to be everywhere at the same time without being at all noticed. He captured countless moments that were priceless and made everyone feel completely at ease with his presence. When you are spending the entire day with your wedding photographer it is important to enjoy them and feel comfortable. Trent with ProImage Weddings becomes your friend, helping you to keep your cool, have a blast and feel amazing and beautiful! I cannot recommend him enough. He truly is the best photographer you could ever ask for.Sent on 04/22/2012

Our wedding was a beautiful celebration of love, spiritually uplifting, and soulful, joyful occasion shared with the people we love most. Even though it was just 11 months ago, some of the people are no longer with us. Trent was able to creatively capture each precious living moment, and deliver that to us.We get to relive the most wonderfully memorable day of our lives! Thanks to Trent with ProImage Weddings, our wedding day was an unbelievably wonderful FANTABULOUS day! People still ask about him, and everyone who sees our photos is impressed. He fit right in with our group and we highly recommend him as a photographer. He is kind, professional, and his work is beautiful. Cody and I don't have enough words to express how grateful we are to have had such an awesome wedding photographer and now friend... We can't wait to do it again!Sent on 05/26/2012

My wedding photographer was my #1 concern as I planned my wedding. I was always nervous that I'd choose someone who didn't provide the quality and uniqueness that I desired. I am so glad to say that I made a wise choice by choosing ProImage Photography. Every moment that I treasure was captured in a photo, and beautifully at that. I have received many compliments on the photographs and I am proud to share them. They are beautiful reminders of an unforgetable day in my life. Thank You!!!Sent on 04/18/2012

My husband and I used Trent Buckle, with ProImage Photography, for our wedding at Peacock Farms in Arroyo Grande, Ca. Now after our wedding is over and we have received our photos, DVD slideshow, and photo album, we couldn’t be more impressed and ecstatic about Trent’s work. The photos are breathtaking; we had so many picture perfect photos to choose from, it was difficult to try and pick the best ones because they all were so great! Trent did a flawless job on the album, truly transforming it from just a book to a seamless beginning to end story tale of our wedding day. From start to finish, Trent was professional, extremely easy to work with, punctual, courteous, and very importantly, made us feel so comfortable. Trent has very unique, artistic and creative shot ideas and a beautiful vision of how to make your special day absolutely perfect. It is evident that Trent has an innate passion for catching the memories of weddings; he truly cares about his clients and about his work, down to the smallest detail. When looking for a wedding photographer, the crucial characteristics of a photographer can include punctuality, professionalism, talent, vision, and reputation and Trent possesses all of these qualities and then some. Trent surpassed our expectations and truly delivered; I strongly recommend Trent Buckle to be trusted with your wedding day photography. He is a great person, amazing photographer and you will be very impressed with his work.Sent on 07/23/2012

If you are looking for a photographer in the San Luis Obispo county, or in surrounding areas like Santa Barbara, I can honestly say you can't go wrong with Trent Buckle and ProImage Wedding Photography.Sent on 05/28/2012
We met with some of the top photographers in the San Luis Obispo area for our wedding in Creston at the Loading Chute. We like really clean, focused photographs that are classic and will age well over time. While a few "artistic" shots are fun and nice, we found a lot of the younger photographers seemed to depend on these weird angle shots, fuzzy photographs, and tons of sepia or grayscale photos. They struggled with simple, colorful and realistic images. We didn't want our entire wedding album to be "indy" photographs. We wanted it to show off us, our guests, and the day in all it's glory and in the best light.
If you go to Trent's website and look at his portfolio, you can see he has an eye for details and angles without having to use those "indy photograph tricks". He captures moments in their entirety and at their best angle.
(We also had a thing for his ring shots. We love our wedding rings/band and engagement ring so oddly this was a selling feature for us. He takes the best ring shots of anyone we've seen.)
Anyways, the entire process of working with Trent was professional and easy. We knew what to expect and he had genuinely great advice to help us as we got closer to the big day. He really cares and is passionate that you are getting good service from your vendors - including himself!
We met at his home in San Luis Obispo to look at his portfolio and to see some sample wedding albums he had built. As we got closer to our wedding we had two engagement shoots. He had noticed a field full of flowers in San Luis Obispo and contacted us to see if we had time for a mini-shoot since this was a great opportunity! Those photos turned out amazing, he has such a good eye and helps you relax. I hate taking photos but he made it fun and easy. And we were totally impressed that he was willing to go out of his way for a second (mini) engagement shoot. That was beyond cool.
We had out normal engagement shoot in Santa Margarita and he spend many hours with us - he says he'll go as long as you want and he isn't joking. He would scope out these great spots we would have over-looked and I'm telling you - he has stamina and wants you to get the best shots possible. I think he wore me and my husband out that afternoon but it was worth it for the end result. Gorgeous photos.
The wedding was more of a blur but Trent and his assistant were there on time and easy to work with. A lot of the time you didn't really notice them but they were working and getting fabulous shots of us and our guests. We love some of the great candid shots they grab, it really brings you back to the day. Trent also asked us if we wanted some special shots of just the two of us when the lighting was good. It was up to us and we took advantage of it (plus it was a little break from the guests) and those photos are amazing.
After the wedding Trent has been very easy, patient, and understanding while we select our wedding album photos. He is always prompt to answer any questions and very helpful.
Trent and ProImage Wedding is worth the investment. We were totally impressed and grateful we choose him and feel we got what we paid for and then some! His enthusiasm and his style captured us and our wedding beautifully! I'm sure he'll be used by us again in the future for family events and for family photographs. I'd also be happy to answer other questions if you have them about Trent, he should have my contact information if so.

Trent is a PHENOMENAL photographer! My wife and I were married on the beach in San Luis Obispo in 2010. We put a lot of research into choosing a photographer, and when we came across Trent at ProImage Weddings we were so impressed! Trent's style is artistic, personal, professional, and unique. The sunset pictures are what caught our eyes at first and the more we saw the more we knew we had found the perfect wedding photographer! We are so glad we chose Trent, he met with us before the wedding to make sure he knew exactly what we were looking in our pictures. The pictures came out better than we could have imagined! We have been married of over a year now and to this day I still get compliments about how great my wedding pictures look. People say they should have been in a magazine! Trent is the best and when you pick him you will never look back!Sent on 04/19/2012

I could not have been happier using Trent of ProImage Weddings. Trent was a joy to work with from beginning to the end and the pictures are amazing.

Our experience with Trent photographing our engagement and wedding photos convinced us that there is no other photographer we will use for all of our life events. Trent at Pro Image Weddings is professional, personable, a perfectionist, and an amazing photographer. He made us feel comfortable during the entire process and we feel as though we can call him a friend. If you are looking for beautiful photos that truly capture emotion on film hire Trent.Sent on 04/17/2012

ProImage Weddings was recommended to me by a friend who used Trent as their wedding photographer. My husband was in their wedding, so by the time it was our turn, we were familiar with Trent and his services. Trent asked what we wanted four our engagement pictures and he found such great locations to shoot that satisified what we were looking for. Our wedding plans changed and we decided to have our wedding in Las Vegas. I didn't want just any ol' photographer so I asked Trent to come along with us, and he did!! I was so happy that he made the trip and shot our wedding there. We even hauled him and his assistant off with us to shoot at the Las Vegas sign. He really did go beyond to make us happy. At the end of the reception, Trent came to say goodbye and honestly, I didn't realize he was still there. I never felt smothered by a camera, I didn't even know he was there, but yet he captured everything. When I got pictures back fom the big day, there were shots in there that I didn't even know happened.Sent on 04/18/2012
Trent is so fun to work with and he's not afraid to crack a joke, which makes the whole experience even that more fun.

Trent photographed our wedding and did an outstanding job. Trent is very professional and is an incredibly skilled photographer. Trent does a great job getting to know his clients and bringing out their personalities in his photographs. Trent is very organized and helps ensure that everything goes smoothly and that all of your desired shots are captured. Lastly, Trent is discrete and respectful which was very important to us. Trent captured everything at the wedding without being a distraction. We have seen too many paparazzi style wedding photographers whose constant interruptions really detract from the atmosphere. We had an excellent experience with Trent and happily refer him to friends and family at every opportunity. We love our photographs and have commented on many occasions how lucky we were to have met Trent.Sent on 05/17/2012

After many hours of research I finally came across ProImage Wedding Photography. Trent is truly amazing! I knew after meeting him to discuss the contract that we had found the right wedding photographer. He was professional and easy to talk to. Trent genuinely wanted to know what he could do to make our day perfect. He was extremely flexible and offered to show up an hour early and stayed more than an hour after the contract specified without charging us anything extra. The pictures and the work Trent put into everything is amazing. My family and friends continue to say these are the best wedding photos they have ever seen. We were married at the Sea Venture Hotel in Pismo Beach, CA, and Trent made sure we had the perfect sunset photo to end our magical day. Despite living in San Jose now, I would definitely make the trip down the Coast to have Trent from ProImage Weddings take my pictures again.Sent on 06/02/2012
