I gotchu is….. you not having to worry if you’re awkward, or shy, or have a side you don’t like because I’m here to make you feel at ease as much as possible – it’s my job to make you look good. 10/10 I’ll be right there, hyping you up, because hello, who wants a stiff, stuffy photographer?
I gotchu is you seeing that photo of mom wiping away her tears behind her sunglasses (And dad, who swore he wouldn’t shed a tear, crying), in your gallery – yes, I’m capturing all the candids (those little moments that look like what movies are made of). EVEN the funny drunk dancing moments haha!
I gotchu is you having all the photos you saw yourself in and wanted – those details you worked so hard on, the family formals you’ll blow up on your wall, YOUR newlywed romantic photos – ALL of those, I take care of, and work with you on what YOU want to see on your wedding day during the months of planning.
I gotchu is me asking you “Hey there, you need a break?” because I care if you’re having a good time.
I gotchu is me genuinely investing time in knowing about your love story so you get honest, emotional photos and videos that make you think AND feel, “Can I marry you all over again?”
Let me start out by saying if you're thinking about booking with Anne, don't think JUST DO IT. Her energy and overall vibe is just amazing and so contagious. My fiancé and I were visiting LA from New York and decided to have our engagement shoot at the Staples Center and at LACMA. Anne was amazing from the very beginning. My fiancé and I were nervous (more so me haha) but Anne made us feel incredibly comfortable and she made the entire outing so much fun. We had a BLAST. I feel like all we did was laugh & smile the entire time, which I am not complaining about. Our shoot with Anne was on a Saturday night and by early Sunday morning I woke up to an e-mail from Anne with 22 sneak peeks from our shoot. Not even 2 weeks later and I had all my photos from our shoot. I can't thank her enough for capturing such beautiful photos of us for our engagement shoot. You will not regret booking with Anne, trust me.
This review has been a long time coming, and I can’t believe I just got around to it. TJ and I are, at least, I feel like, one of the most awkward people out there when it comes to taking photos. We only ever have selfies of ourselves. We were looking for a photographer and no one really clicked until I saw Anne’s IG and loved the captions. Fast forward to our wedding and she made us feel so at ease. She made us do actions instead of poses which TJ and I really appreciated. We are really private and reserved people, and aren't on social media much, and I was afraid it would reflct in photos. We felt more ourselves in the photos between all the “walking drunk” and the “hundred kisses” she made us do. She is as personable and animated in person as she is online. She is also very on point, and helped us a lot when it came to things like timeline, vendor help. It felt like she was an extra bridesmaid – just one with a lot more knowledge and expertise! I love our photos, and I love the experience that came with it, because I don’t think we would have looked as relaxed if we had gone with a more stiff, corporate-ish photographer. She honestly goes the extra mile, and I’m glad to call her more than just a photographer, but a friend.
BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER EVER. She is more than 5 stars! 😊😊😊 Please get her and it will be the best wedding decision you will ever make. It will make your wedding hassle free and worry proof. This girl knows what to do and will make all pictures made with magic! We never met, the first time we met was just during our wedding but immediate we clicked and she knew what we want and we really love it! 😊 she came really prepared, it was cloudy that day, she brought an umbrella for us, in case it would rain. Good thing it didn't, but the umbrella was used as a prop for the pictures. I was touched by her gesture. She also worked well with the guests and it made her get their photos well too. She has a great eye for photography because she makes simple things/ background blend with us. And the pictures came out really awesome. 😊 I love how she captured also our candid moments and also the pictures she directed for us. She captures not only the wedding experience but the emotions felt during the wedding. Thank you Anne for sharing with us your talent and capturing our picture perfect moments 😊
ANNE IS THE BEST. My husband and I got married at the courthouse with only a couple weeks of notice and Anne was our photographer. Since we’re not models and have never gotten our photos taken so professionally, we were both nervous of being so awkward in front of the camera. BUT Anne is such a talented lady behind the camera and she made us feel so special and comfortable! She really works hard and knows exactly what the clients want. Prior to our wedding day, her and I talked about different shots we want and she made sure she got all of them on the day of our wedding! We have another shoot scheduled for Christmas and we can’t wait to work with her again! We love her❤️❤️❤️
My wife and I got married in March and looked at dozens of photographers before we found Anne. As soon as we met with her and she showed us her portfolio, we knew she was the one. Photo after photo was gorgeously captured but most importantly what came through was each person’s personality and the spark they had between them. Then we got to experience this first hand. The photos Anne took of our wedding are breathtaking and fun and romantic and whimsical and full of love and life. She and her team know how to get everyone smiling naturally and they capture the real moments without anything feeling staged or faked. I highly, highly recommend Anne not only because she’s an amazing photographer but she’s also a fun person to spend the day with!
Anne Salas and her team surpassed our expectations. If you’re shopping around for photography, remember, it is what you’re left with after your big day. We met with Anne, and she eased my fears and explained her process and how she works. Planning for a wedding or another big event can be overwhelming, but once you know what to expect—not just logistically, but what the WORK IS ACTUALLY like—you can make your decision with ease. I appreciate that Anne showed us her work and allowed us to see her style. What we loved the most is that it didn’t all look the same, she adapted her photos to the couple and the ambience. That really helped. Additionally, I believe she over delivers when it comes to the number of photos you get back! We worked with her for our engagement shoot, our mehndi party, and the wedding itself. We have SO MANY photos!!! Many others gave us limited numbers and additional proofs would have been extra. She loves what she does and it shows, in her work, in her character, and in her interaction with you. I remember needing sparklers on the days before the wedding and she called her sister to get info on where they’re being sold downtown and called me back to get me details. Just amazing service and a definite personal touch. We couldn’t be happier with her and her team, it was truly one of the best decisions that affords us the opportunity to relive that magical day over and over. We highly, highly recommend Anne!!!
Anne is incredible. Her photos of our August wedding were so amazing that most of our family and friends remarked that they were the best wedding photos they have ever seen. I was blown away by how she captured the essence of the day. She was efficient and professional and got literally every single shot that I wanted, and all the ones I didn't know I wanted. She did it swiftly without making any of us feel hurried, which gave us more time to be with guests enjoying our wedding. Her candid photos found the most intimate and fun moments. Facial expressions that embody my husband and me so perfectly it's hard to put it into words. She was great to work with beforehand as well. She listened and then executed all the shots that I asked of her. I showed her a few photos that I had seen other couples do at my venue, and she was able to recreate them and do it BETTER. WAY BETTER. The way she used the afternoon Summer light to illuminate the photos was ethereal. I have never been a big "put wedding photo in our home" kind of person, but I want to cover our walls with photos of us, and our family and friends from our wedding because they are truly that good. I can't thank Anne and her assistant enough.
I reached out to Anne literally at the last minute upon finding out my husband was deploying. I had been procrastinating on setting up pictures for our anniversary and him leaving lit a fire to find the very best. Not only was Anne understanding, timely and professional - she was fun, charming and communicative and helped my husband and I stop being so awkward during our shoot and the photos turned out amazing. I would recommend Anne every time!
Everything about working with Anne was AMAZING!!! I had the pleasure of working with Anne for my wedding on April 29, 20q7 [sic]. From the initial phone conversation, she was prompt in responding to my texts and she was able to answer all questions I had. She was very understanding in regards to the budget we had and didn't try to up sell a different package like many other vendors we spoke to. During our initial face to face consultation, she was SUPER organized. She had the contract set up before we arrived and also showed me some great ideas. Prior to meeting with Anne, I had no idea what a "first look" was. She showed me pictures of some "first look" shots she had done previously. After viewing her work, me and my husband agreed on doing a first look. On the day of our wedding, she was BEYOND HELPFUL. Not only did she help me with my dress (it was a princess style and VERY hard to lace in the back)but she captured priceless moments while us girls were getting ready. Right before the ceremony started, my daughter was tearing up a little bit and my wedding party was showing her all the flowers to make her smile. Anne took such an AMAZING photo of this happening and even got my daughter to smile! It is one of my many favorite pictures from my wedding and I'm beyond thankful for Anne photographing such a candid moment. Anne was very professional but also provided such a welcoming and friendly presence. I highly recommend her and will be using her services again in the near future for my gender reveal party! Thank you so much Anne for doing such an amazing job!!!
Have you ever worked with a humble, down-to-earth and down-to-party photographer? We have and will look forward to more special occasions captured with her. From start to finish, it was a pleasure working with Anne. She made everyone feel so at ease that you'd easily forget front-of-the-camera-jitters before you know it. Plus, working with her erases that fine line that separates a vendor and a customer --- she's now our friend. Our photos came out so beautifully 🙂 She captured moments that were definitely meant to be treasured. We highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again.
