A day to remember
Simply Perfect Images was the best decision by far. He was the first vendor to reach out to us and completely brought our vision for our Big Day to reality. It was super easy to communicate, Alan the photographer was on time and made us feel comfortable. The results were so beautiful that I literally cried like a baby the first time I viewed them. I am still over the top obsessed with all the photos. He also worked with us financially with payment options. That was a day that will never be forgotten and I do owe it to Simply Perfect Images.

Alan is the best!!!
We hired Alan to do our engagement session and our wedding day. So far we have only had our engagement session, but we are in love with his work already! Alan knows exactly what he is doing when it comes to setting up the shots. We felt so comfortable throughout the whole process and were in LOVE with our pictures once we got them back. We can't wait for him to capture our special day!!!

Phenomenal photography that captured every magical moment
I am genuinely HAPPY that Alan was our photographer for our elopement! We just got our photos in and I am absolutely thrilled to say that they turned out PHENOMENAL! Alan has the ability to capture the MAGIC in every moment and it really shows in all of our BEAUTIFUL photos. During the ceremony, Alan made sure to snap the perfect moments. Afterwards, he really helped us pose beautifully together around the best areas in nature. Alan is so easy to work with and our pictures will forever be in our memories. His experience is unparalleled to others out there in the photography industry. He will take absolute good care of you and your loved ones during your photoshoot. For any occasion you may have, don't settle for less when you can hire Alan as one of the very BEST photographers! We Love You Alan!

Their name says it all: Simply Perfect!
If you are reading this, you are probably looking for a photographer for your wedding. Stop searching right now and book Simply Perfect Images!!!! Best decision you'll make!! Our experience with this company was perfect from A to Z.
Customer service: All my communications prior to and after the wedding were with Alan (phone, e-mail). He is so kind and so responsive. Any questions I had, he would get back to me within an hour or so. I really appreciated the 5 star service we got, we always felt like we were the most important people :) Also, their online platform for invoicing and making payments is super convenient and very easy to use.
The day of: Andrew was our photographer at our wedding. Just like Alan, Andrew was so kind with us and all of our guests. He really had some great ideas for the pictures with our parents, bridal party and even just the 2 of us (we are both shy in front of a camera and usually not super natural, but he really helped us feel comfortable). So professional! Thank you so much Andrew!
The pictures: our full package was delivered right within the timeline they had promised us, which was about 8 weeks after the wedding. We got over 500 pictures and they are GORGEOUS!!! I keep getting comments from many people that these are the most beautiful wedding pictures they've seen. So many great memories that will last forever.
From the bottom of our hearts, my husband Mirko and I would like to thank Simply Perfect Images for everything! You are the best!

Couldn't be happier!
Alan is absolutely wonderful! He met with my husband and I a couple times before the wedding and got a good sense of what we wanted on our wedding day. He even met us at the venue (a country club) and toured the grounds so he knew where to shoot the day of. He really took time to get to know us. He was so kind and patient the day of the wedding. He didn't make us feel rushed, but he also didn't make us feel like we were keeping our guests waiting. He had the perfect mix of detailed images, posed images, and candid shots. We are so happy! Thank you, Alan!

Alan was absolutely amazing to work with. Our venue was a location he had never shot before, and within minutes of doing a walk through, he was already brainstorming and developing a vision. He is very creative and has a real eye for setting up the perfect composition for each photo. He is experienced and professional, combined with a genuine passion and enthusiasm for his craft which comes through in his work. Before our wedding, he made sure he was prepared by getting all the information he needed regarding the timeline, key players, and a list of shots we wanted. The day of, he made sure he got everything on our shot list, plus so many more. He even showed us a couple of previews, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled! He also did a great job of getting the candid shots without feeling intrusive on the flow of events. He was the perfect teammate to have in our corner, capturing all of our special moments. Your search for a photographer is over- hire him!

Unforgettable moments captured for our lifetime!
My husband and I knew from the moment that we met Alan, we wanted him to be our photographer. His shows exceptional professionalism, communication, punctuality, is personable and has a genuine heart. We felt like we knew him for a long time. We were honored to have him capture our wedding day and were satisfied with all of our photos. He recreated a pose we liked and captured that moment for us. He goes above and beyond for customer satisfaction and we wouldn't want anything less when picking an experienced photographer for our wedding day and family photos. We recommend Alan Merrigan.
Mekeisha · Married on 03/08/2018
The experience was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Alan captured the essence of my beautiful bride and the love we share. We couldn’t have prayed or asked for a better experience/photographer. I would HIGHLY recommend Simply Perfect Images because the images are just that...SIMPLY PERFECT!!!!

Alan was GREAT! He took the time to sit down and get to know us as a couple so on the day of our engagement shoot and wedding day he was able to really capture beautiful photos of us. We wanted our engagement shoot to be comfortable and not awkward and Alan made us feel comfortable the whole time. Throughout the whole wedding planning process Alan was really nice, he reached out to us a few times and always offered his help to us if we ever needed anything. He really went above and beyond to build that connection with us and because of that we knew that Alan would capture all the best moments of our wedding day. The photos came out amazing and we have gotten lots of comments from friends and family about how great the photos turned out. We really recommend Simply Perfect Images and working with Alan. Thank you so much again Alan for everything and all our wonderful photos!
Chad · Married on 01/13/2018
Alan was fantastic to work with. He was responsive, professional, courteous, and most importantly took amazing photos. We love the way the images turned out and he was very much in command of the process, knowing when to capture great reality and when to get great posed shots.

We had Simply Perfect for both our daughters’ weddings. They were very different events and venues and SP were brilliant. They were flexible and affordable, great with each brides needs and the final photos were magnificent.
Rich · Married on 11/17/2017
Alan has been such a breeze to work with and so helpful with our wedding photo experience. He is everything anyone could ask for in a photographer, smart, attentive and helpful. His customer service is outstanding and his photo quality is incredible. He has such a good ability of finding just the right light and the right emotions to make every photo perfect. I highly recommended him for any occasion, he really is the best.

Jessica · Married on 10/12/2017
We had Alan as our wedding photographer via Let's Get Married by Marie. He was incredible. You can tell photography is his passion. He knew how to position us for great pictures. Alan was super friendly, very down to earth and calm. He made us feel at ease in front of his cameras. My husband and I are super camera shy but Alan was so good he made us forget he was actually taking pictures. He made us look good! I had some ideas as to what I wanted my pictures to look like, and he gave me actually what I wanted and even more. I only received a few pictures so far and I'm already in love with them! Alan did an incredible job and we had so much fun with him!
Emily · Married on 08/12/2017
Working with simply perfect images made the wedding planning and day of so much simpler. With their help, I was able to capture moments and expressions to cherish forever.
In wedding planning it’s so easy to get caught up with the multiple directions you are being pulled in, but they helped us to stay on track and helped move everything along seamlessly.
I haven’t met another photographer who truly understood what I needed and helped me get there. We are so grateful to have these amazing photographs from our day, and even more so to have worked with someone so professional and friendly. He is truly a hidden gem in the wedding vendor world.
Nicole · Married on 08/11/2017
Great Candid Pictures. We Felt Like Family.
We chose Simply Perfect Images because they had a good all around style, but we especially loved the candid pictures they were able to capture. And above all else we felt like Alan was just a part of the family from how comfortable and fun he made it when he was around. We even booked him for family photos.
Dulce · Married on 05/25/2017
Heidi and Alan are amazing! So well organized, punctual, knowledgeable and helpful. I love them and they made my wedding so much easier!
Crystal · Married on 03/11/2017
I can't possibly say enough good things about Alan and Heidi! We met Alan at a wedding expo and were impressed with his work and his prices compared to the other photography vendors so we ultimately scheduled a meeting and just loved his personality! We knew he would be easy to work with which was important to accomplish our photography goals as well as handling my crazy family. Sure enough, come wedding day he handled everything like such a pro! I had so many guests rave about him... before even seeing the pictures! I mean, I've been to many weddings, but I've never thought twice about the photographer other than when the pics came out, right?? We are beyond pleased with our photos and the whole experience. I feel we got such a great value for our money and as any bride will tell you, pictures are definitely worth the investment!
Tiffany · Married on 02/26/2017
We love Alan! He did such an amazing job. Our pictures were breathtaking and nearly a year later still bring tears to my eyes. He has such a talent to capture emotion and connection between people. He also showcased our elopement location (which happened to be Joshua Tree) in the most amazing way. I love our memories. Thank you, Alan! We are forever grateful! ~ Elgin & Tiffany
C · Married on 02/18/2017
I was constantly searching for a photographer that was affordable for our budget along with excellent beautiful pictures that we could always remember and love for life!! Allan was very patient, always checked on us making sure everything was up to date, was on time to our wedding and took over 500 pictures which came out very beautiful!! I would highly recommend Allan to do your wedding. To have someone that is there for YOU and only worried about your wedding day!
Michelle · Married on 10/29/2016
I cannot even express how happy my husband and I are with our wedding photos and all the work Allan did! Allan and his team and extremely talented and caring. They truly are able to capture your joy, love, and personality in the photos! I would highly recommend them to anyone. They are easy to work and super responsive. Cannot thank them enough for all they have done.
Justine · Married on 10/19/2016
We have had the best experience with Simply Perfect Images. Alan is very professional and accommodating. He easily captures natural moments and turns them into beautiful photos and has a good eye for what would be a beautiful background. Alan has shot photos of our wedding a year ago and last month shot family photos for our one year wedding Anniversary. Its been over a year since we have met and we have still kept in contact. His wife, Heidi, was our minister and they make the best team. Its been wonderful to have Alan capture our special moments. I am extremely grateful our paths have crossed. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect photographer.

I loved simply perfect images!! My wedding pictures came out beautiful and I love looking at them, it's like I'm reliving the day all over again!! So glad I chose them!! :-)
Rachel · Married on 08/12/2016
Absolute PERFECTION - do not miss out on this talented photographer!
Alan is simply perfect at capturing weddings of ALL DIFFERENT STYLES. If you want a perfect white wedding, he'll capture it perfectly; if you want a zany color-filled wedding, he will capture it JUST AS PERFECTLY. My then-fiance and I chose our vendors so carefully that we began planning over a year before the wedding and didn't actually sign most contracts until just a few months before. Eek! I know. But we booked Alan for our wedding immediately AND for our engagement photos at Disneyland!
It is no joke that this guy can take a quality shot, but it is SO MUCH MORE than that. He captures moments the way they are remembered, which is no easy task. Moments of emotional height and elation are frozen in time and the rest is mild photo editing to brighten colors and soften areas you may not want in your finished wedding photos. Alan offers an amazing deal for hours put into extensive editing, if desired. He is very responsive and interested in hearing feedback from his couples. So don't be shy! Share your ideas with him openly and he will be your best asset in preserving your wedding day!
WHAT SETS SIMPLY PERFECT IMAGES APART FROM OTHER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS:
* Price: Simply Perfect charges much lower fees than competitors of similar/lesser quality photos and services.
* Content: Never worry about sloppy photography errors like bad framing (ex: crooked photos), little attention to detail (ex: wardrobe malfunction), and bad timing (ex: mostly closed eyed or blurry photos).
* Color: Alan has an eye for color. He will find even the most subtle colors of your day and bring them to the foreground in the most delightful way.
* Attitude: These guys are down to do whatever you want them to on your big day. It's your day! And they treat you like it is. Plan out a jam-packed adventure of photos and Alan will make it happen!
