Jason provided our photography needs for our wedding on 11/17/12.
Jason is an amazingly talented photographer and extremely courteous, patient and professional. He made us feel completely comfortable during our first meeting and we ended up sitting with him chatting about so much more than photography or weddings. Before you knew it, hours had passed. His online portfolio only shows a small fraction of his work. You have to meet with him and see more of his work, you'll be happy you did. He has a different eye for pictures and makes the process fun. He goes so far above and beyond your cookie cutter wedding photographers. His assistant and second photographer he brought with him were also so easy to work with and also made us completely comfortable.
I HIGHLY recommend the Q-Booth instead of your normal photo booth. He sets up a backdrop and has a ton of fun props and just shoots away. It's not just a camera on a tri-pod either, he's moving around and catching different angles for each picture. Every picture is printed out right away, you get a link of all the pictures posted online and you get all the pictures on a disc shortly after. The Q-Booth was easily the biggest highlight of our reception. Young and old, our guests are still talking about it and we're still laughing at all the hilarious pictures. I'm sure we'll still be laughing at them 50 years from now!
Jason was the most important vendor of our wedding dayâ€¦ though itâ€™s difficult to call him a vendor b/c he was so easy to work with, it was like having a friend take photos of us. My wife and I had never taken photos together beforeâ€¦ we had friends with lots of experience take photos of us, but we never felt really comfortable and the wife never liked how she looked (sheâ€™s very critical). I have to admit that Jason made us look damn good on our wedding day and engagement photo session. The wife was so thrilled, and I was too. Jason was just so cool and has an incredible eye. Sometimes when I have my camera, I pretend Iâ€™m Jason. He has such creative ideas, but not overly-creative that it becomes odd. He listened to our opinions and ideas, and knew how to implement his own creativity to ours. This guy has a background in graphic design, so his broad experience really helps him know what will look good and what wonâ€™t. My wife and I are super anal about our photos, even if itâ€™s us taking our own amateur shots with our phone. Jason eased all our worries, and Iâ€™m glad he was the first person we booked for our wedding. Our photos look like they came off of covers of magazinesâ€¦. Simply amazing.
My husband and I loved working with Jason as our wedding photographer! Everything about our experience was top-notch and beyond our highest expectations, including the photos, the wedding album, and â€”Â most importantly â€” how easy and fun it was to work with Jason and his associates.
Jason was referred to us by our wedding planner, and upon seeing his portfolio of work, we knew immediately that we wanted to meet with him and learn more. Upon meeting him for the first time, we learned that not only is he a great photographer, but is a really awesome and fun person to work with. His enthusiasm for his work, and interest in learning about his clients really showed through in person. This was important to us because we wanted to make sure our photographer was not only reliable and trustworthy, but also adept at making ourselves and our guests comfortable in front of the camera.
This was proven true when we had our engagement session with Jason and his associates. We were a little nervous/awkward with posing at first, but Jason's directions behind the camera made it much easier for us and we soon relaxed and became ourselves.
Fast forward several months, and Jason and his team ensured our wedding day photography went smoothly. Jason arrived in the morning to cover the girls getting ready while his second shooter covered the guys. As hectic as it was, Jason was able to capture all the critical (and not so critical, but just as heartwarming) moments. It was so easy for us to let him do all the work and capture the memories as they happened, oftentimes without us or our guests even realizing. Having now gone through our wedding, we realize in retrospect how important this was, since it allowed for natural, candid photos while also reducing the stress of everybody involved.
We were very fortunate to have been able to hire Jason as our photographer, and give him our highest recommendation. He's a great photographer and a great guy. We hope our paths...
After scouring the internet in search for the PERFECT photographer for our wedding, my fiance and I found Jason Q Tran's work, and we were both INSTANTLY impressed. We absolutely loved his photojournalistic style, and we were so intrigued by how creative and innovative he was with his use of angles and lighting in his pictures.
We live on the east coast, so we scheduled a skype chat with Jason so we could have some sort of "face-to-face" interaction. We knew that whoever we chose as our photographer would be following us around during the most important day of our lives, so it was important for us to be comfortable and know that we could work well with our photographer. Jason was not only professional, but we really liked how laid back and personable he was.
On the day of the wedding, Jason knew EXACTLY where to be to capture the sweetest moments of our day. He helped us stay on schedule, and did a great job working with other vendors to make our day run as smooth as possible. And when we got our pictures back from the wedding, we couldn't have been happier. One comment I would hear time and time again, from our family and friends, is that you could see just how happy and in love we are in these pictures that Jason took.
Looking back now, I realize that you invest so much time, energy and money into this one day, and sadly, the day goes by so quick! But we were fortunate and extremely grateful to have hired Jason. He not only captured the biggest moments, and the smallest moments of our day, but he was able to do that in the most creative fashion.
All I know is that you get what you pay for in terms of professional photography, and Jason was absolutely the best investment we made on our wedding, hands down!
I work as a graphic designer and so I was extremely, extremely picky about the quality of pictures I wanted to remember the day with. I chose Jason because he has real talent for working with light, color, composition, and capturing the right moment. Too many other wedding photographers use cheap gimmicks and hokey Photoshop tricks. Jason needs none of that, his photos speak for themselves because he frames them with an artist's eye. We ended up with the most beautiful wedding photos I could have imagined! Every detail of the wedding was captured beautifully. He and his crew were quick, organized, and somehow managed to get terrific pictures of everything while being very inconspicuous. I still receive compliments from friends who say "Your wedding photos are the best I have ever seen!" My great, great grandkids will think so too when they look at this album someday. Best wedding-planning investment I made, hands down.
Jason and his team created beautiful pictures of our wedding. He was accommodating, professional, and considerate. I would absolutely re-use his services for future needs.
If you are looking for atop notch artist and not a regular photographer, then you have found it in Jason. He doesn't rely heavily on photography gimmicks and equipment. His photos take natural lighting and ambient lighting into major consideration. He uses the shadows, with heavy influences from chiaroscuro paintings, to shape his subjects in flattering ways. His photo compositions are spectacular. He also uses shadows and reflected images in such a unique manner that his subjects almost render themselves out of the photo frame. The powerful imagery unfolds in a manner that not only flatters the subject but it tells a powerful story.
The emotions evoked from his photography alone were the main reason I chose him as a photographer years before I got engaged. Once I got engaged, I knew that I wanted his artistic skills. The quality of return on the photos themselves is well worth it.
His services are reasonable and he is a very flexible vendor. He was even more helpful than our wedding planner! He is always up for trying new things and testing out new ideas so don't be afraid to make suggestions. I can't recommend and praise him enough!
Jason and his team did an awesome job at our wedding!!! They did not only just captured the big moments but also every little details. I would highly recommend Jason Q Tran to anyone who is looking for a photographer who is passionate about his art, highly professional and value the quality of his work above all else!
Jason is THE BEST photographer! He made our entire wedding experience so special and FUN.
Our experience with Jason Q Tran photography was one of a kind. They were very professional, fun to work with and are genuine people. I highly recommend them and we were glad to have them be part of our special day.
Jason is truly a talented photographer and artist that can capture anything beautifully. The first time I met him he was very professional, straightforward, and was never pushy. You can tell he is just a genuine person who is great at what he does. For our engagement photos, traffic held me hostage on the freeway for hours and we had to change our location at the last second, and he was still so gracious and did an amazing job. Everything from our engagement photos to our actual wedding day was captured so so beautifully. Jason and his assistant are really a pleasure to work with.
I am very pleased with Jason's work. He did an amazing job at my wedding and we get complimented all
The time for our wedding pictures! He is the best at his job and is very professional!
After our venue, Jason was the second vendor we booked.
My fiance and I had a long engagement since we had been long-distance for more than 8 years, so I had more than a couple of years to "web-stalk" potential photographers.
My family is in love with taking pictures and I usually wouldn't be caught dead holding a camera or posing for a photograph.
I knew I wanted a modern/artistic photographer for our nuptials. I wanted photos I would be proud to display in an album or on a wall because of the artistry (not just because my husband and I were the subjects). Thus, I began my search on some wedding photojournalist websites and came across Jason Q Tran's webpage in 2006/7?
My family is Vietnamese and Jason shares my surname, so I was intrigued with what he could do with some traditional Vietnamese elements--Jason was just beginning to do wedding photography and he had some interesting shots, but our wedding was still in the distant future, so I filed his name away in my brain.
Fast-forward a few years later and we were about to finally get married in orange county--lo and behold, Jason Q Tran is now pretty well-known in wedding photography in Orange County (that's what I was told by some of my other wedding vendors). When I re-discovered his portfolio, I was enamored.
My fiance and I met with Jason. Once we asked for his availability/pricing, I told him I was not looking at any other photographers, so he'd better be available! His pricing is competitive with other photographers I BRIEFLY considered. He had a contract available at his (very nice) office and even has insurance--extremely professional.
I don't know much about artistic photography--but I was in awe of the finished product.
Jason is not only an artistic photographer but he is also highly skilled with layouts--the artistic print from our engagement session we displayed for the wedding is so lovely, even the label on our engagement and wedding DVD looks nice!
His photo "Q Booth" was one of the best elements of the wedding--far superior to a traditional photo booth in quality. The Q Booth brought out the inner ham/comic in many of the shy elders, thanks to the random props. My only regret was not using it myself with my husband.
Last, but not least, Jason knew how to manage working with some of my "overenthusiastic" wedding guests with cameras to ensure he got all the important shots. The man has great patience if he can handle my photo-happy paparazzi family!
Jason, his second photographer, and photographic staff were definitely photographic ninjas--I could not conceive how they got some really great shots, but they somehow managed! Even my friends who are professional photographers commented on how fabulous his photos are.
Jason is a highly skilled and professional artist--my husband was more excited to look at our wedding photos than me--I've never seen the guy excited to look at any pictures in his life.
We look forward to hiring Jason to work with us for other milestones in our future.
Jason Q Tran is amazing. Though we felt a little uncomfortable at first, our engagement session photos WOW-ed everyone. I was so tired on my wedding day, and I looked really tired, but Jason managed to capture some great moments and I can't wait to do our trash the dress session with him for our 1 year anniversary. He was so great, two of our friends who are getting married later this year booked him as well. I love his style. Everything turned out beautiful!
Jason was everything we could wish for in a wedding photographer. He is a relaxed, easygoing guy with a keen aesthetic eye and great photography skills. After screening several photographers, we selected Jason for his photojournalistic style and rave references. He captures genuine moments during the wedding day. Jason is capable of catching the contemporary, fun snaphots and classical portraits. Jason arrived early at our church to scope the lighting and try different lenses. His expertise and talent are evident in our bright, crisp, and wonderful photos. He worked really well with our wedding party and families, to capture the must-have shots as well as the candids throughout the ceremony and reception. The photos really tell the story of our day, and it was fun to work with Jason. He sent us our prints and digital images in a timely manner according to our contract. I recommend him with no reservations and the highest praise.
AWESOME. you have a great personality and professionalism. =) i've already been slathering your name all over nor cal! i'm definitely keeping your number on speed dial
Jason is an amazing photographer and very professional. He is also a very kind individual and very easy to work with. We highly recommend him for any photography needs. He has an eye for the commonly unseen and a way of capturing events and images that truly displays the emotion of the moment. In sum, he is brilliant.
Jason worked with us to create a wonderful memoir of our engagement and wedding day. He customized our photography package and delivered beautiful pictures that captured the love and excitement that we felt inside.
Jason's work is fantastic and even our friends and family members loved the photos and want him to be their photographer for their next event. Jason was professional, very nice to work with, friendly, very responsive, and accommodating to our specific needs and tastes. He offered great advice and seemed to know what we wanted with little direction during the wedding and reception. We spoke several times before the event and he was a great listener and a pleasure to talk to on a professional and personal level. During the wedding and reception, he captured the once in a lifetime moments. Our personalities, emotions, and moods are captured in the photographs. He captures many details in each picture and when I look at the pictures again I see another detail that I missed earlier. In addition, he was discrete and unobtrusive especially during the ceremony...you didn't even know he was there, but when you review the pictures, he seemed to photograph every moment. We received a CD with over 300 high resolution photographs and that was a bonus on top of everything else. We were very happy with the value of Jason's packages especially when you consider the amount of time he spent at the wedding, the commute, the finishing touches on the computer, etc. He treated us like we were his only clients though you knew he had back to back events and kept a busy schedule. We highly recommend Jason!!!
Jason was MORE than we could ever have asked for! He was so amazing and down to earth as well! From the moment he shot our engagement shoot, we felt extremely comfortable with him and his style of photography. We have already received our pictures (only one month after the wedding) and they are wonderful! We get so many compliments on Jason's candid style and processing of the photos. He knows what works and what looks absolutely beautiful! Words cannot express our gratitude toward Jason and all of his hard work!
