Testimonials - Wilbur Studios

"If you've been stressing over trying to find an amazing photographer, have no fear. Your search is over. I must have emailed at least 20 different photographers and interviewed about 6 before I looked Jason up. He is very professional, but also really laid back and friendly, which is something that's hard to find. He was so accommodating to what we needed for our package and he even came all the way to Carlsbad to shoot our engagements, which was definitely out of his way. Not only did he shoot amazing photos, he created a timeline for us for the day of the wedding so every one knew where they needed to be at what time. This allowed us to enjoy our time leading up to the wedding without having to worry about coordinating everyone. Another thing.. Jason had never shot at our wedding location before so he made sure to schedule a walk through with us before the wedding. We picked out the spots we wanted to shoot since the garden was quite large. This was very helpful in that we avoided having to roam the gardens the day of trying to find a spot we liked. So on top of all the positives I've mentioned, his prices were too good to pass up. Plus the quality??? Forget about it! Jason was the absolute BEST and I am forever thankful for him beautifully capturing our day."

"If I could Give more than five stars I would. Obviously for the most important, and largest photographed day of my life I searched and searched to find a photographer. However, the second I looked through Jason's portfolio I knew I had to have him as our photographer. We easily set up a time, and place to meet and hire him. He is very attentive with Clients, answers emails and phone calls almost immediately, which was very helpful for me because I was planning my wedding from across the country. You feel very comfortable when taking photos with him, he is so professional but also very friendly you feel like your with a friend not a stranger. He did our engagement shoot as well as our wedding photos, our engagement photos were ready to see in just a week!! He got our wedding photos back to us so fast! And they are AMAZING! He totally captured the style we wanted, all of our precious moments, and created some cool ideas for photos as well. Jason goes above and beyond, and is the perfect choice for your most precious photographed moments.."

- Amanda & Ryan


"I can not begin to explain how lucky we were to find Jason while looking for our wedding photographer. From the first time we met him through the whole process he was amazing. Jason was professional and such a pleasure to work with. Even before our big day we already loved working with him. Now that we have our pictures back we can't stop looking at them. Jason captured every detail and every moment perfectly. His organization the day of made everything run smoothly. We will never be able to thank him enough for the perfect photos he took and memories her captured on our wedding day!!! Our day would not have been the same without Jason as our photographer!"

- Sydney & Raul 


"In a few short words: Jason captured the engagement and wedding photos that were beyond our expectations. I don't think we could have found a better photographer than we did with Jason and his associates. He is so professional, organized, communicative (huge plus), and very willing to work with you to get the photos that you will cherish for a lifetime. When we first sat down to interview Jason and go over his portfolio, both my husband and I noticed immediately how easy it was to talk to him. This made a major difference in the way our engagement photos were managed and on the day of the wedding! He was willing to use a pinterest board of inspiration to get the engagement pictures we really wanted, and he kept it handy throughout the entire shoot. From the beginning all the way up to the day of the wedding, even including after, we have had nothing but respect for the work that he does. I am even more grateful that he used the photo wishlist I created for the day of the wedding (with all of our families, both parents divorced and remarried meant a lot more coordination) because we got 100% of the photos we wanted. I HIGHLY recommend Jason for a stress-free and beautiful photography experience for your wedding!!"

- Jamie & Ben 


"When I set out to find a wedding photographer, I knew that this was an incredibly important decision because my wedding photos will help me relive my wedding day for many years to come. I can happily say that I am so glad I found Jason! When I first came across his website, I immediately loved his work and hoped he was available for my wedding day. I was in luck! I got such a great vibe from him from our first phone conversation. I was nervous to take our engagement photos (not a big fan of taking pictures), but I knew after our session that I would feel confident and comfortable on the big day. He helped me and my husband relax and have a good time; he really has an eye for capturing the fun and laughter we share along with the beautiful landscape. Not only does he take fantastic pictures, he was so incredibly easygoing and was always quick to answer any of my questions. When I got our wedding pictures, I was blown away and so happy with our photos! He captured the beauty of the venue along with the love and excitement of the day so wonderfully. My family and friends have raved about how gorgeous our photos were and I couldn’t be happier with them. Thanks Jason!"

- Jennifer & Trevor 


"Words can't even describe how amazing Jason was to work with. I live in Connecticut but am from Southern California. I got married in San Diego. I called Jason and we had a great conversation on the phone and I felt very comfortable. He wasn't the least expensive photographer in San Diego but he wasn't the most expensive either. I picked Jason over the others because he told me that when it came down to picking your photographer, you need to feel comfortable with your decision, and I did! I met Jason for the first time the week of our wedding. He came to the restaurant we were eating lunch at (even though he had already eaten) and talked with our whole family for an hour. He was engaging even to my new step-children. Jason showed up the day of the wedding on time (maybe even early) and he was ready to go. He and his 2nd photographer were very professional the entire time. Everyone at our wedding kept telling us how amazing our photographer was, which just confirmed why I picked Jason over the others! Many times I forgot he was even there taking pictures of us, especially when we were all dancing. If I had the chance to do my day all over again, I would still pick Jason to be my photographer. He is easy going and works well with brides. I have already seen my pictures online and love them! Jason also sends out flash drives with all the pictures, which really helps those that don't really use print photos anymore."

- Leah & Mario 


"When looking for a photographer for our wedding, the most important thing to me was to find someone who truly captured the emotion of the best day of our lives. That is exactly what we got from Jason’s BEAUTIFUL pictures! Jason is such a genuine person who absolutely adores his job! He is passionate and wants the best photos possible for you. I have to admit, my husband really didn’t want to do engagement photos. However, Jason explained to us that it would be good practice for the wedding day. I am sooo happy we took his advice! After the engagement shoot with Jason, the wedding was a breeze. He really makes you feel comfortable and it truly makes a difference in your photos. I have to say Jason actually made taking photos fun! He really works his magic and can give just the right direction to make all the difference. He has an eye for lighting and angles. I was truly blown away when I saw our wedding photos. They are absolutely perfect! I would recommend Jason to anyone and everyone. You must take a look at his site- his works speaks for itself!"

- Kristine & Mike


"Jason was such a gem! From the moment we first spoke with him, we had a strong feeling that he would be able to capture our special day! He did that and so much more. He was very professional, accommodating and easy to get in touch with. He had a wonderful sense of humor that allowed my husband and I to relax and be ourselves. Even our videographer was extremely pleased with Jason's professionalism. We would definitely refer him to our friends and anyone looking for an exceptional photographer."

- Dana & Chase 


"Jason has a talent with photography and is a pleasure to work with. He photographed our wedding and did our engagement pictures, which were absolutely beautiful. Thank you Jason & Team, you have given us memories that will last us a life time!"

- Asenet & Julian


"Jason was an amazing photographer to work with! From the beginning Jason was so friendly, open to all our ideas, and took the time to answer all my questions. When picking a photographer who was going to be such an integral part of our wedding day, I wanted someone who I felt comfortable with and someone I knew had the experience and creativity to capture our special day. Jason was that person! I can't even begin to express how much I love our engagement and wedding photos. Thank you Wilbur Studios!!"

- Meaghan & Ryan


"Jason was absolutely the best to work with! From the thorough and informative emails, to detailed contracts, to friendly and comprehensive, but no-nonsense phone calls, Jason took care of everything! He knows how to run his business and take care of his clients. He has an eye for fun and interesting landscapes, and incorporated our overall vibe and theme into every photo. Jason made our entire wedding party comfortable and he felt like one of the family by the conclusion. The real proof came when we saw our photos pre-photoshop! The colors and energy of the day are in every photo. I could not be more happy and now have such wonderful, lasting memories! Additionally, he was so reasonably priced. I could not recommend anyone higher. Plus, I think he really likes his job!"

- Cathy & Kelly


"I couldnt have asked for a better experience. Working with Jason was a breeze. He managed to keep everyone calm and even caught up time during our first-look when we had fallen behind on schedule. Jason and his assitant were so friendly and fun to work with. The cherry on top is that the pictures are GORGEOUS! Even better than we could have ever imaged. We couldnt be happier - if you need a photographer I would 100% recomend Wilbur Studios!"

- Nikkii & Andy


"Jason and his team were wonderful to work with from the outset. He was always prompt at emails/phone responses and had templates for everything from timelines to "standard photo" lists. He scouted beautiful locations for the photos for the ceremony and portraits ahead of time. We got all of our wedding photos back in 3 weeks and everyone has commented how stunning they are. I highly highly recommend working with Jason."

- Megan & Travis


"Jason was an amazing photographer, both with our engagement and wedding photos. We were very impressed by the style and uniqueness of photos taken, plus the quickness of getting our photos back (and our wedding album was absolutely gorgeous)! We had so much fun taking our photos, and we were so grateful Jason was able to work around our busy schedule! We definitely recommend him for any type of event!"

- Michelle & Julian


"I don't know where to start. Jason was one our best vendors at the wedding, if not the best investment for vendors we made. He brought a relaxed vibe to ease our nerves with engagement photos and wedding. He captured the natural lighting perfectly. Even his second photographer was chill and cool. He is not over the top with pricing, but honestly Jason is worth every penny and the quality of work he produces is amazing. You won't regret using him for your wedding."

- Chelsea & Ruben


"Jason was our photographer all the way from our proposal to our wedding and was nothing short of professional and personable the entire time. He was willing to travel for us - even driving from San Diego to Orange County beforehand to scout out the church - and was flexible in adapting to the impromptu changes in timeline on the day of. We enjoy his bright, clean style of photography. Jason is very creative with his use of space and light, one time stopping us to take a photo in an alleyway we were just walking through to get to our next location (we used that photo for our programs). He seeks to capture the personalities of his clients as well as composing unique pictures asking for personal touches when possible. Jason's flexibility extends beyond the photo shoot: when we realized we missed a shot we wanted for our album, Jason was willing to take another photo at our friends' wedding, where he was also their photographer. We highly recommend his services to anyone looking for affordable and easy to work with photographers in the San Diego area."

- Charlotte & Lawrence


"Jason was nothing but great from beginning to end. We really liked the photos on his website and are so happy we picked him after sitting down with 5 different photographers. He was very quick in getting back to us every time we reached out and even gave us his phone # so we could text him if we wanted to. He spent extra time with us for our engagement session to get just the right light and we've received countless compliments on those and our wedding photos. His turnaround time after each session was very fast and the photos were impressive time and again. Jason is very professional and efficient, yet extremely personable and someone we loved having with us throughout our wedding day. We highly recommend him for your special day."

- Amanda & Chris


"Jason is an amazingly talented artist. He took our engagement photos and we were literally blown away with the end results. We had a vision for the shoot which was a bit complicated, but Jason worked with us from conception to completion with fantastic creative input and a positive attitude. We're having a destination wedding so wanted a bit of a travel theme for our engagement shots. From the beginning, he helped identify great ideas for local venues as well as a great variety of shots and poses. We settled on a private hanger with many vintage aircraft for our backdrop. Jason worked within all the tricky parameters the venue presented - including limited natural lighting, unforeseen wind, manually moving various aircraft to get 'THE shot' - and even working with our hyper puppy who joined us for the shoot. He was incredibly patient, made us feel very comfortable and guided us throughout the entire process. We absolutely LOVE our photos and had such a difficult time picking just one that we ended up designing another piece of our save-the-dates so we could include two images! In a nutshell, I'd highly recommend Jason/Wilbur Studios to any couple or person in need of a photoshoot. His professionalism, expert detailed eye and easy-going, upbeat demeanor surely won't disappoint!"

- Valerie & John


"I was recommended Wilbur Studios Photography by a dear friend of mine. Hiring Jason was one of the best wedding decisions we made. His services are reasonably priced for the San Diego area, he is a great communicator, he made me feel at ease, he drove out to our venue and toured the rehearsal at no extra cost, and most of all, his ability to be right in the middle of the action was amazing. He was literally a wedding photographer ninja! His assistant photographer was great as well. She was very sweet and helped calm some of the nerves. I would recommend Wilbur Studios to any couple in the San Diego area!"

- Heather & Justin


"Jason was absolutely wonderful to work with! He is personable, friendly, and very responsive. He was very thorough in helping us pick out our wedding package and our preferred shots. He was very accommodating and flexible in preparing for the wedding, and on the wedding day itself. His photos are stunning and artistic. They captured our wedding day beautifully, and especially captured people's expressions well. From beginning to end, Jason was great to work with and we would highly recommend him."

- Ellen & Matt


"Jason did an excellent job capturing the most priceless moments of our wedding. I really wanted to incorporate aspects of our lifestyle by taking pictures at our favorite bar, at the beach and at the kickball field where we met. He worked so well with each of the settings and took some really beautiful and authentic photos. But some of my favorites are the candid shots he grabbed during the reception and of us dancing with our friends and family. These are priceless moments I will be able to cherish forever now ;)"

- Jenn & Jeremy


"I absolutely love my wedding video. I could watch the highlight video everyday, and when I watched it for the first time I almost cried. Jason was able to capture the best parts of my wedding and I am so happy that I have something so wonderful to remember the day. Jason is a true professional and an artist. He is so easy to work with. He exceeded my expectations"

- Rachel & Bryan


“Like most people I thought we didn’t need the extra expense of a videographer at our wedding. After talking to a few other couples we decided it was a worthy investment and was recommended Wilbur Studios. It was one of the best decisions of the wedding. Jason from Wilbur Studios absolutely crushed it with our wedding video. We couldn’t have been happier with working with him and the final product. He kept things light, easy going and calm, but also made sure he got all the shots he needed to make a memorable video. I have a visual design background so I have my own expectations and can be a bit of a diva when it comes to things like this. Jason was easy to work with and executed my vision perfectly. We have shared our video to all of our friends and family and the compliments keep pouring in.” 

- Amanda & Tyler


Jason and his team were phenomenal. He went above and beyond to ensure every detail was covered and that we were stress free the day of the wedding. He scouted the venue on his own before hand, he was early for everything, and was with us every step of the way to make sure all of our special moments were captured on film. Communicating with him was easy and he was very responsive to all of our needs. Turn time was exactly as promised, and most importantly, his final product brought tears to our eyes, and praises from everyone who has seen our video. Thank you Jason for making our day easy, fun, and memorable!”

- Ashley & Jose


“Jason of Wilbur Studios is incredibly talented and I am so happy I hired him as the videographer at our wedding. I knew I had to find the perfect videographer who could understand my aesthetic. Wilbur Studios did just that. After I watched the highlight film, I was over-the-moon happy because Jason & his team captured the day so perfectly and did NOT make it feel cheesy or fluffy. What I really appreciate about the highlight film is the CANDID moments that Wilbur Studios captured of my husband and I. It was as if we didn’t even know there was a camera on us. Jason met with me one time (prior to the wedding) to go over what I wanted from the film and he completely nailed it. On top of it all, he is such a cool and easy going guy to work with. I highly recommend Wilbur Studios for wedding videography.”

- Cece & Frankie


“Jason was recommended to us by some very good friends that got married a few months prior to when we did. At first I was skeptical on even doing video because I’ve always been really just a photography girl. When we decided to make a special trip back to the east coast where all of my family is for a separate reception I decided a video was a must so that some of the moments that photos just don’t capture could be seen by some of the most important people in my family. We just got our video and will be traveling this weekend and honestly I am still in tears over just how absolutely amazing it turned out. Jason has completely changed my opinion on video. I now would STRONGLY recommend anyone getting married to have one. The moments and emotions that are captured on film…..words just can’t even begin to describe. I felt like I was living our day all over again. Our guests commented multiple times the night of the wedding as well as after how great Jason and his assistant were the day of, that they could tell he was getting some amazing footage and was going above and beyond. Please use his services, he is a true class act, extremely professional and what he can do behind a camera and in the editing process is just amazing. Thank you Jason for capturing memories that we will have forever!”

- Misty & Wesley


“In a world of wedding chaos, Wilbur Studios was a refreshing constant. From beginning to end, Jason communicated the plan, shared the vision, and executed it flawlessly. During the wedding, Jason and his team blended into the crowd like ninjas and found unobtrusive ways to capture all aspects of our special day. The end product was professional, while showcasing techniques and transitions that would leave Hollywood directors impressed. More importantly, our video was a hit with both our friends and family alike. Every aspect of our video told our story and captured the emotions and highlights of the most important day of our lives. That being said, our experience was exactly what we had hoped for and we feel confident recommending Jason to anyone in need of a videographer. SIDE NOTE: And for those who are thinking they can have a friend take video and simply edit it in iMovie…think again. This is a once in a lifetime event and should be left to a professional.”

- Courtney & David


“Clinton and I were able to witness Jason’s work first hand when our best friends were married and he filmed their wedding. After seeing his work and his professionalism at their wedding it was an easy choice for us to pick him to capture our day. We were extremely thrilled by Jason’s work and how much care he put into making sure our video was everything we wanted it to be. He brought 2 other Videographers with him to ensure every moment was captured. We were extremely pleased with how easy he was to work with and how well he worked with our other vendors. When we watched our video for the first time we could not help but be impressed by all the details and moments he was able to film. When we first started our wedding planning process we did not plan for a Videographer due to budgets but after hearing many friends tell us we would regret it we gave Jason a call and worked it in. We have no doubt if we would not have had our video we would have regretted it. He captured so many moments of our day that we could not see for ourselves and are so happy we were able to experience them over and over again. One of the most thoughtful parts was how he coordinated the music and even included songs from our Guitarist to match the songs we chose to represent our day. We are so thankful for our video and thankful to Jason for his time and beautiful work.”

- Christy & Clinton


“Your wedding day is one of the most important and special days in your life time. When my husband and I look back on ours we are filled with gratitude for Jason of Wilbur Studios and his staff. Jason and his staff were professional, respectful and supportive in addition to being the very best at what they do and very fun to work with! Because of their work we have a beautiful video package that we will forever cherish. Our friends and family have also been very impressed with our videos with their seamless editing, creative and artistic expression and great music selection. Our video allows us the opportunity to relive our wedding day with all the same joy and happiness we felt then. We recommend Jason and Wilbur Studios with the highest regard and confidence! Wilbur Studios was the best investment we made for our special day.”
