My photographers are freaking amazing! I honestly can’t say enough fabulous things about them! Check out Holding & Co. They’re a husband/wife team with an eye for gorgeous, candid and artistic shots that focus on the emotion of the day. They’re incredible. I found them here on WW, but you can also check out their website www.holdingcophoto.com
What part of California are you looking for? Any particular photography edit style, like light and airy or moody?
These were my photographers: https://www.earlynight.com/ They’re a couple team and they have a super creative, candid, raw, boho style. They also are all about movement and don’t do those awkward, stiff poses. They are in your price range and and I loved my photos! I’ve done multiple shoots with them, include my wedding, and I have another upcoming shoot with them. Highly, highly recommend them!!!
