“The perfect blend of wedding photojournalism, artistic imagery, and romantic portraiture.”
I’m Greg Bumatay and I’m a full time professional photographer based in Fullerton, CA.

Though best known as a wedding photojournalist I’m also a lifestyle portrait and commercial photographer. My creative style comes from a broad range of artistic and photographic experience. I earned a BFA in Illustration from CSULB, held creative positions at Warner Bros. Animation, and taught photography at Cypress College. My passion is to capture natural moments while composing creative images that tell a story.

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.

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.
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

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.

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.

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!!!

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!

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

We highly recommend him.
