Greg Bumatay Strives to be the Best Wedding Photographer

I’m always striving to be the best wedding photographer, but I really suck at talking about myself. It would be way better if I let my clients do the talking..

Ashley & Brian

Greg & his assistant Jason recently shot our wedding and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. When we were researching photographers a year ago there were so many to choose from and my planner helped us by asking us what style we liked and from that she gave us a list of 5 photographers. After looking at all of their portfolios we fell in love with the way Greg’s photos looked. Ironically we found out that he photographed my planners wedding so we knew he would be amazing!

We met up with Greg to sign the contract and look through his albums and we felt so comfortable talking with him. He’s so sweet and kind…we knew we picked the right photographer. A few months ago we did our engagement shoot and at first we thought 4 hours! Geez this is going to be a longggg day. But honestly it went by so fast!!! He made it so comfortable for us and would talk to us and it really helped us forget that this is a photo shoot and we felt relaxed. The photos came out amazing!!!

At our wedding Greg and Jason were so kind to everyone and my family and bridal party were saying how sweet the both were and how they felt comfortable taking photos. We can’t wait to see the photos and will definitely book him again!!!

Cynthia & Vince

Greg & his assistant Paul shot our wedding a couple of weeks ago.  To say my photos were the most important part of my wedding is an understatement; I take photos all the time (yes, think Asian with a camera stereotype), and while I may not be a professional, photos are Superbly (like your life depends upon it) important to me.  I think you can only imagine how particular (batsh*t crazy would be another word) I became when looking for a photographer.  I must’ve gone through dozens and definitely got lucky in finding Greg because he was better than I could’ve hoped for.  Greg was super calm, patient, professional, and nice; sorry, no snooty photog’s here!  The guys even got interactive with the ring bearers and got them to tone in down and stay still long enough to take pictures…near impossible task to ask of 5-year olds if you ask me.  Last, I even came up with a couple (crazy) Pinterest idea and Greg kindly obliged, although I have to admit that his concepts came out better than I could have dreamt of from Pinterest/Wedding Wire/every other wedding website all over.

He got my pictures to me crazy fast.  I think this is becoming a sonnet, so I’ll just say that Greg has an amazing eye.  You would be crazy not to use him.  C-R-A-Z-Y.

Michelle and Matthew

After looking for the perfect wedding photographer I found Greg! I saw his website and was amazed. It was like he read my mind. I met him soon after contacting him via email. My mother joined me (she was the wedding checkbook). We both instantly fell in love with Greg’s personable yet professional personality. I felt a connection with Greg and knew he would do an amazing job. And he did! On the day of my wedding, Greg and his assistant Christine showed up on time and with tons of energy. They made me feel so special and beautiful. Greg knew how to make me, my husband, relatives, and bridal party look great from every angle. He was able to capture the mood, the vibrancy, and the love of the day. My friends are so impressed with my wedding pics. I didn’t hire a videographer, and good thing too! Because just looking at my photos are enough to recreate the day, the emotion, and my wonderful memories. Thank you Greg! You and your work are so special to me.

Amanda and Ryan

We had a small immediate-family only destination wedding. We had a friend take pictures. When we got home and saw the photos we knew that we had made a mistake not hiring a professional wedding photographer. A friend of ours had used Greg Bumatay for their wedding and we loved their photos. We decided to do a re-shoot with Greg. He came up to LA on a Sunday and we honestly got the most stunning, romantic photographs. I was thrilled with all levels of service – the photography was obviously amazing but Greg’s professionalism, easy-going nature, and quick follow-up made it a truly pleasurable all-around experience. We will happily hire Greg in the future.

Marisa + Brandon

Greg Bumatay surpassed our expectations in every way. He was extremely professional and a joy to work with. Greg captured every moment and his pictures have such a beautiful elegance to them, we got so many compliments. We highly recommend him!

Marinela and Liam

Greg did a phenomenal job on our wedding pictures and so I called him again for a photoshoot with my son. Once again, I’m enthralled of how the pictures turned out. Greg is easy and fun to work with. He is also very patient and playful. I truly recommend Greg Bumatay for all types of events.

RJ Bautista

He has done our wedding and just recently did a photoshoot with our brand new child. His work is top notch and was a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole entire process. Just from our wedding alone we had several friends use him as their wedding photographer.

Karly and Branden

An unbelievably artistic, professional, fun and enjoyable photographer. I don’t believe there are any other photographers out there that can even compare to Greg’s photographic abilities. You know that the instant you meet him he will be a joy to work with, and that he truly does have a passion to ascertain perfection and to remain the best. Then you get your pictures back……and…….he shocks you again!!!! His pictures will astound you, take your breath away and put you back in the moment as if you were there one more time. Having said that you would be a fool not to use Greg 🙂

Gladys and Mike

Greg Bumatay was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. He was very professional from beginning to end and very responsive too. His work speaks for itself as he really has a creative eye for photography. Greg ensures you feel comfortable, giving a feel of not just your hired photographer but that of a good friend. We not only used him for our engagement session and wedding photos, but also our maternity shots and first baby pics too. You will be very happy in choosing Greg Bumatay.

Kristi and Ben

After seeing Greg Bumatay’s website and blog, we had incredibly high expectations and he more than exceeded them. He was, without a doubt, our favorite vendor and the best money spent for our wedding. The pictures are vivid, artistic and beautifully composed. When I saw the first images from our wedding, I teared up because Greg captured meaningful moments and details in ways I could have never imagined. To top it all off, he’s a pleasure to work with. We really enjoyed having him and Neil as a part of our big day. 🙂

Greg Bumatay is an incredible wedding photographer. He brought his artistic eye to our wedding and put our entire group at ease, which resulted in amazing photos! We’ve had so many people tell us they look like they came out of a magazine. We had so much fun working with him that throughout the process, my husband kept saying we needed to do this again! We can’t thank him enough for making the day as relaxing and enjoyable as it was.

Kathryn and Michael

We loved Greg Bumatay!! He was professional, sensitive to our needs and our pictures were absolutely stunning. Bumatay is a must!

Chiara and Vincent

I started looking for a wedding photographer for my former roommate and got to thinking ahead. I had seen Greg’s website and once I found his blog, I literally followed his every adventure in wedding photography. Six months later, when my fiance (now husband) and I got engaged, I knew that we needed to make an appointment with Greg Bumatay. We booked with Greg for our wedding and we absolutely love the way he works and the results! I kept saying that I stalked Greg for one year (six months before my husband and I even got engaged!)… Greg is not only fun to work with, he is also creative and very encouraging! He really has a way with people and was able to take my fiance and I out of our “shell” during our photoshoot. He was also a good sport while taking our family pictures (we had almost 70 people in one family picture)! During and after our wedding, we kept getting compliments for choosing Greg! My Dad absolutely loves the pictures and the entire family can’t wait to see the finished album 🙂

Shannon and Adam

We loved our pictures, they were outstanding. We’ve gotten so many compliments and had so many people comment on how great our wedding photographer was. His style was exactly what we were looking for. Beyond that, Greg was just a really nice person and enjoyable to work with. We would definitely recommend him to others, and in fact we have to other friends who are getting married!

Elizabeth and Todd

Absolutely!!!! Greg Bumatay is one of the best wedding photographers I’ve come across. He is professional, creative, cute and has a great sense of humor!!!

Good luck Greg, we love you… Todd and Liz

Greg Bumatay is very easy to work with and has a lot of great ideas. Everyone we showed our pictures to were very impressed. We are so excited to have him doing our wedding pictures next month as well and would recommend him (and already have). I LOVE pictures and I am always the one to have my camera on me. With Greg, there is no need for me to have my camera, as he captured all of our moments!

Kasia and Dan

We would definitely recommend Greg Bumatay! Greg was terrific. Every shot was amazing and he made us feel very natural in our pictures. Our favorite feature – he made a slideshow of our wedding and presented it via laptop – at our reception. Our guests were so impressed!

Stacie and Kirk

Greg Bumatay was made us very comfortable. He was great to work with and professional. We enjoyed working with him very much and would definately reccommend him to everybody, especially to those people who are normally camera shy or think they don’t photograph well. Greg Bumatay was fantastic and we have gorgeous photographs!

Greg and his associates are extremely professional. On a day that meant a great deal to our families, he created a relaxed and fun loving atmosphere, not to mention all of our pictures came out fantastic.

Jessica and Travis

Greg Bumatay and his team are a dream to work with!

Sophia and Josh

Greg was a delight to work with as his professionalism was just as i hoped. He took command of the photo shoot when he needed to and he disapeared into the crowd to get those casual shots. I was truly impressed to see him ALWAYS looking for the next creative and artistic shots. My Wife and I were excited from the day we signed with Greg Bumatay and they did just as they promised. Thanks Greg, Josh Root

Nicole and Bill

The thing that i liked about Greg Bumatay was that he knew how to make us relax and just be ourselves.  He made the day go by nice and smooth and i love the fact that he catches the candid shots.

Jocelle and Harry

Greg Bumatay has been a great wedding photographer. He is easy to work with and very professional. Our wedding is less than two weeks away and we’re both excited. Greg has been on top of things and has informed us of his photo plans for that day in advance. We had a great time getting our engagements shots done, where Greg was very creative in his style. We highly recommend him.

Elizabeth and Joshua

We havent even had our wedding (its in 26 days) but our engagement session with him was great. He is super easy and nice to work with! Im looking forward to our wedding pictures

Melissa and Jay

Greg Bumatay goes to the extreme and maximizes his time with you. Worth every penny. I wouldn’t have gone to anyone else. Great shots!!! Very attentive to the important people on your day…family, friends, etc. He captures the most intimate and moving moments of the day. A very wise choice.

Shannon and Bret

Picture Perfect! Greg Bumatay is a wonderful wedding photographer who was very caring and created beautiful photos that will last a lifetime. I can?t recommend him enough! My photos are a work of art!
