Totally worth flying out to Phoenix.
I Do Photography was one of the photographers recommended by our wedding venue, and for good reason! Kristina, the studio manager, was super helpful and responsive to whatever questions we had, even helping us pick out a location for our engagement photos. Our lead photographer, Donna, was super fun to work with and really took the stress out of trying to look one's best while being photographed. She provided all the directions we needed so we didn't have to do the thinking to look good, and with the results from our engagement pics, we knew the wedding photos would be even more spectacular. On the big day, Donna and Steve captured and created for us many beautiful, touching, and occasionally amusing moments of us and our loved ones throughout the day, and made sure we had fun while doing so! In short, do yourself a favor, hire I Do Photo, and then go have a blast!

The "I Do"Wedding Photography was amazing! Donna and Lily captured the day and all the special moments perfectly. The photos turned out beautifully and we will cherish them forever. They were professional, enjoyable to be around, and went above and beyond in every way. The entire team was extremely responsive from beginning to end and worked with us to ensure everything was to our liking. We would highly recommend using them!

HOLY MOLY! The “I Do” Photography and videography team blew our minds! First of all, we had a super untraditional wedding so they were willing to make a contract that was catered to our desires. They responded very efficiently, always within 24 hours. When we first met them (which was the day of the wedding), it was like we’d known Donna, Mark, Matt, and Chad for years! They were SO easy to work with and totally respected things we did or did not want to do, and they made use of their time! All four of them were constantly shooting and even showing us their work between shots… you can tell they really love what they do. Even our friends and family commented on how awesome they were! Safe to say, we highly recommend them as your team on your wedding day ☺

I recently had my wedding on June 24th and hired The “I Do” Wedding Photography team and I am so happy that I did! One of my favorite vendors! From the very beginning, they were so warm, welcoming and accommodating. I met with Kristina who was amazing from beginning to end! She worked extremely well with my budget, understood what was important to me and did her very best to give me what I needed. I hired a total of 4 people, 2 photographers and 2 videographers.
A few days before the wedding I spoke to the lead photographer who explained to me the process, what was going to happen, how it was going to happen, etc. He made sure to understand and capture all photos I truly found important to take the day of my wedding.
2 months after my wedding I received all of my photos (approximately 500) and a 4 min. Highlight video- all were beyond beautiful! The quality and work they put in was exactly what I envisioned to have!
Seriously do consider this amazing team- you won’t be disappointed!

Fantastic to work with! They were incredibly responsive in all the emails and Kristina and the rest of the team were all super friendly during the night. They were great at fielding our questions and taking our requests, and the photos looked amazing!

My now wife Patty and I wedded on November 18th of this year and throughout our planning we hit a terrifying and unexpected bump when booking first photographer. Long story short the original photographers we ended up booking “Film Monkey Studios” ended up being scam artist and scared our trust going forward. Luckily time and PayPal payment returns were on our side and were able to get our money back, but our trust in research was ever so less than extremely cautious. Then came, The I Do! At first the packages seemed too good to be true so we decided to have a face to face with Kristina the Studio Manager and after assuring us that we had nothing to worry about and showed us wonderful samples of their work we decided to trust once again, AND THEY DID NOT FAIL US! From start to finish these wonderful people took every detail into consideration and communicated with our day of event coordinator as they were communicating directly with me and my wife. We wanted to give a very special thank you to Kristina Corbett (Studio Manager), Donna (Lead Photographer), Erick, and Julian (Videographers). We can’t wait to see out final product come to fruition :)

We chose "I Do" to do both the still photography and videography for our wedding. They are nothing short of fantastic. I've been in the TV and film industry as an executive producer/showrunner for over 15 years and so I researched the heck out of LA area companies with very high expectations. And though at some point, your options start to blend, "I Do" stood out and so we decided to go with them.
We made the right call. Their quality of work is excellent. We loved our photographs. We loved our video. The conditions on the day of our wedding were not ideal. There was a lot of wind on the beach and the location of our wedding arch created some lighting and shadow issues. The photographers and videographers worked like pros to maneuver around and potential problems to deliver everything we hoped for.
The edited video was also superb. I can't say enough about how patient they were with my nitpicking, my questions, etc. All they did was listen and continue to improve what was already above and beyond.
It's important to mention how great these people were to work with. Forget their abilities as shooters, editors and producers... They all have great dispositions. On a super important day where you have all your friends and family present and don't want any bad mojo from strangers you don't know, it's such a big deal when your vendors fit in. When their personalities actually add to the great vibe of your wedding day, well you know you picked the right company.
Lena, Kristina, Lily and Lydia held our hand via emails over a period of months. Always keeping me calm and confident that our pictures and video would be great. Amazing customer care. Alex, Mark and Erick not only shot premier video, they were so great to work with. They came with their own ideas, honored ours, and worked their butts off. Bilal and Brian shot our photos. Just like the videography team, these guys came with a great energy and a clear purpose.
A+ for "I Do" Wedding Photography!

These guys were amazing. I didn’t have an opportunity to meet my photographer before the wedding day, so I was a bit worried, but they showed up on time and ready to hop into it! (If you get nervous about not knowing who your photographer is, they seemed cool with us doing a pre-meet, we just didn't have time for anything more than a phonecall) We also got a photo booth from I Do, and it was a big hit.
Our photographer surprised us a few times throughout the day with interesting setups and ideas, they got our family photos done in like 15 minutes, and we got our edited photos back in about two months- they are great! Like a week after the wedding, I requested a few photos so that I could order thank you cards, and they got me back four edited photos almost immediately. Definitely recommend.

I got married 3 years ago and booked The I Do Wedding Photography and LOVED them! Great at the wedding, not obtrusive, got great shots, and turned them over super quick! Alex is such a great photographer with cool ideas! THEN, my dad was getting married, so I booked them AGAIN this summer, and barely 3 weeks later, we have wonderful photos again! I'm so glad to have a go-to photographer for all of life's special moments! LOVE THEM!

Alex and Joe from "I Do" took photos for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with the result. There were so many epic shots that we are still having a hard time picking out our favorites for print. Definitely recommend them for anyone interested.
Our wedding was not easy to take photos for. It happened at sunrise at Griffith Observatory. The brightness of the sky changes from shot to shot, from fairly dark to full bright. We also wanted a number of wide vista shots. We are genuinely impressed of how wonderful each shot came out. Alex and Joe made our wedding day extra special and we can't thank them enough.

Lydia and the team are AMAZING! They're professional, funny, organized, and most importantly their work is amazing! They listen to what you want and they do exactly what you asked for and more! When working with a photographer/videographer you need to be comfortable, and they make sure of that. I was stressed right before my reception and Lydia helped me just calm down and enjoy every minute. Cant wait to see the final edited photos and video!
I highly highly recommend them :)

Lydia is fantastic. She is self assured, has great energy and does excellent photography and videography. She has nothing but the best equipment and had some real surprises for our wedding such as a drone camera for some incredible shots from the sky, and she also shot our wedding with a 360 degree camera for a virtual reality view of our wedding. When Lydia showed up with her brother and a helper, she knew exactly what to do and how to get things rolling. She took an amazing amount of footage for our 1 1/2 hour elopement wedding. You will be very happy that you chose Lydia to for your wedding photographer.

Excellent service! Keep up the creativity!

This is the MOST AMAZING photography and videography team ever! Working with Bilal, Ernesto, Denise & Lydia was by far, THE BEST PART OF OUR WEDDING. I wish I could get married again just to have them film/photograph us. We are so incredibly impressed with the final product. I still can't believe how good the photos and videos came out. Remarkable.
They are all phenomenal and I can't thank them enough for how accommodating and perfect they were. Our wedding day was so blissful and stress-free because of this team. They always had us smiling and enjoying every moment.
Best team ever! I wish I had more friends getting married so I can refer The I Do Photography.

We hired The " I Do" Wedding Photography team to take photos and videography for my wedding 10.01.16 in Catalina Island, CA and we could not have made a better choice. My husband and I are from Reno, NV and to say the least we searched for months for the perfect photographers with the most beautiful photos and best service to capture our destination wedding from our area and Lake Tahoe, all the way to Southern California and locally on the island. Well we received everything we dreamed of and more for our special day when we found Lydia and Alex out of Los Angeles. They came to the island the day of the wedding ready to get the shots we requested, but blew our expectations away with the results and their unbelievable talent and artistic eye! They were so nice to work with all day, very professional and were just so committed to getting some amazing shots and truly cared that our day was being captured as a beautiful, happy, and memorable event on Catalina. We can't express enough that our album and wedding video is more than we ever thought it would be and how much we appreciate The "I Do" Wedding team for listening to what we wanted. If you're that bride or event planner that wants photography/videography services that give you million dollar results at an affordable price, stop your search, your wish has been answered!

We love The I Do Photography! Lydia was the best! She was so sweet and fun BUT she was also tough with our family when they needed to be told certain things... An example of this was when a couple of our younger relatives were fighting and being pouty while we were trying to take a family photo. Lydia took care of it before I even had a chance to recognize what was happening. Her biggest concerns were capturing the photos we wanted and making sure our day was perfect. We really appreciated those little things. Above all else, she put us at ease and captured some really beautiful photos of us on the beach.
We can't say enough about her and the I Do Photography!

THE BEST DECISION I MADE FOR MY WEDDING! From the first email I sent, Lydia was incredibly prompt and took her time explaining every question I had... She was patient and made me feel incredibly comfortable with my decision! On the wedding day, Alex and his team were better than I could have ever imagined! They were on time, friendly, well dressed and SO talented! They all made us feel really comfortable about being in front of the camera and had great suggestions for poses/ideas! They worked very efficiently to get all the pictures we wanted! Lydia just sent a sneak peak preview of some of the photos and I'm already obsessed with them! Can't wait to get all of them! Thank you SO much to everyone at the I do photography for making it such an amazing experience

Lydia and Bilal did an amazing job of photographing my wedding. I love my pictures more and more every time I see them. Their photo quality was top notch and they made me feel so comfortable, especially since I typically don't like being in front of a camera.

From start to finish I was happy and impressed with the talent of Lydia and her team. They were perfect from planning to finish. Especially Lydia, she was on top of every detail during the wedding, including on me, mother of the bride, to make sure she got everything, we all wanted. I was in the moment and would have missed several things if Lydia hadn't been so present and on top of the shots, lists and moments not to miss. She is a great director, when she worked with the bridesmaids and groomsmen she could with ease direct the lively bunches into perfect rows with character. We loved the aerial filming and every single touch they did. If I had another child I would hire them all over again! Photos, video loved by all!

We could not be happier with our choice of having the "I Do" team cover both videography and photography for our big day. They were super sweet, professional, understanding, supportive, fun, patient, creative and TALENTED! I'm sure I'm missing a few different words to describe them, but I think you get it, they're AWESOME! We were so happy with our pictures and even happier with how creative they got with the editing for our video, it was everything we were hoping for (and more)! Thank you Lydia and the team for capturing the most special day of our lives! So happy we get to relive the memories over and over again!

I am so happy I hired The I Do Photography for my wedding at Moorpark Country Club. After searching for months I selected this company because the offer all photo services and I was able to bundled the photographer, videographer, and photo booth to limit the hassle and save a little money. Lydia was very creative and her staff captured some amazing shots. They even had a drone fly over the golf course to capture aerial views. AMAZING! I was very happy with the photos and highlight video. The photo booth was a big hit with the guests.

We picked "I Do" to shoot our wedding. We loved Lydia, our go-to girl and lead photographer. We were lucky enough to have two additional photographers, Dan and Owen, on our team.
1. Very accommodating
We don't live in the area so we were very pleased to work with Lydia--she would go out of her way to make sure we could meet even when we were only in town a day or two. We decided to do an engagement shoot pretty late in the game and she worked with us to make it happen. She also made sure to include any poses/shots we asked for.
2. Put us at ease
Lydia especially was great at relaxing us, getting us to laugh, and generally making the experience more enjoyable. At the same time, she was great at commanding control of the rowdy bunch that made up our guest list. I appreciate that she would tell me when I was slouching--I'm sure our pictures are all the more better for it!
Weddings can be stressful enough, so it was nice to allow her to do the stressing for us, all the while she made sure we were having fun. I was particularly struck by how conscientious Lydia was--while it was an awesome fun day, it was also emotional and Lydia (without prompting) decided to give us a few minutes alone, and all 3 photographers disappeared. And I think it helped make the moment all the more special.
3. Great photos at a great price!
I loved going through all the photos! It was nice to have multiple angles from the same moment, which reflects how talented each of our three photographers were.
4. Fast delivery
We got our preview photos very quick too! The final, touched-up pictures were done in about a month. We were impressed on all accounts!
Overall: Highly recommend. We are so pleased to have found such lovely, kind, and talented people to take our wedding pictures. We feel like we even make new friends in the process!

There just aren't words to say how profoundly happy I Am with the photos from our wedding. Alex captured *perfectly* the mood and feeling of the day. He was perfectly present but not obtrusive and when I got the shots back? WOW! Just stunning! I was transported back to every loving moment of that great day. On a further positive note, Lydia ( the owner) was immediately responsive to any question I had and was great about follow up and follow through. We also received our photos within 5 weeks! Honestly, I just couldn't be more happy with my experience! THANK YOU SO MUCH ALEX AND LYDIA!

It was one of the BEST decisions we made in the wedding planning process to work with Lydia and the team. They captured every moment of our wedding day and photos are all beautiful memories that we cherish forever. They are not only creative at capturing these moments artistically, but do so without you even noticing them in action. We all look so happy/comfortable/natural just like what I wanted. Lydia and the team are very responsive, flexible and efficient.
they are honest and gave me a range of awesome options to make this really work! I highly recommend the "I Do" team. Thank you very much :)

Words are not enough to express our gratitude. We heard so many positive comments about I Do Photography and we decided to use them to shoot our big day. Everything was so organised and perfect. Lydia and her team knew exactly what they were doing. Lydia told us that our wedding photos and the video will be ready in 60 days. I called her only 10 days after our ceremony and explained to lydia that i am going to Serbia to visit my family, and as no one could be present at the wedding i really wanted to show them the movie. Lydia managed to finish the movie in no time and sent it to me to present it to my family. They fulfilled all our expectations and more.
I would highly recommend The I Do Photography for any event.
