  • I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Adriane went above and beyond and helped make our day so great! She was adaptable, easy-going, and helpful. My parents remarked that she was incredibly professional and pleasant to be around! She took awesome photos and has an eye for the shots that will make your wedding look gorgeous. All my family members said "wow" when they saw the photos she took! We could not be happier with our decision to hire her.

  • I have admired Adriane's work for a long time. I was so happy to have her do our maternity session last fall. I had no idea how amazing these shots would come out. Adriane is a true artist and a professional. She helped us feel comfortable and you can see that in our portraits. These maternity moments are tender and fleeting, she truly captured the love we felt in anticipation of our daughter. I am so grateful to have these memories in the beautiful portraits Adriane captured for us. I highly recommend this amazing woman and photographer. I am planning a wedding in the next few years and hope to have her there too!!!

  • Adriane White was our wedding photographer and we would choose her for any event moving forward. This was one of the biggest decisions for our big day and she more than delivered. Our pictures are unique, beautiful, and so much fun. I knew from Adriane’s work that was posted online that we would love our pictures but until we met her at our engagement shoot had no idea how much we would enjoy working with her. She made us feel comfortable, relaxed, and like we could be ourselves and the results speak for themselves. She made sure we got all the shots we wanted and then blew us away with all the candid moments she captured. We could not be more thrilled with the outcome and will cherish every picture forever.

  • We could not be happier that we chose Adriane to capture our wedding day. She was so incredible to work with, and she got so many awesome shots on the day. We also had her take engagement photos which were also amazing! Our house is now a living shrine to us because I love our pictures so much! She was so patient with me and really took the time to work through the day with me. She was a huge part in planning the timeline of the day, and really worked with us to make sure we were getting what we wanted. She was such a calming part of our day, and was able to capture so much of the day, without even being noticed by guests! They all said how they barely noticed she was there. She was able to capture so much of the emotion of the day, and our photos are so full of life! I know there are a lot of decisions to be made when it comes to planning your wedding, so let this be an easy one - hire her!!

  • We cannot speak highly enough of Adriane. As with all weddings, there are so many decisions to be made, and the decisions we made at every point turned out great. That said, without a doubt, the very best decision we made was to have Adrian shoot our wedding. As with any wedding photographer we had limited time to ‘get to know’ Adriane. However, the way she handled everything leading up to, and at our wedding it was more like we had a friend who was taking photos of our day. Her low key, yet exceptionally professional, presence put us at ease and made for an incredibly enjoyable day and AMAZING photos. Adriane was awesome in our engagement shoot and we truly felt like she wanted get to know us and our relationship. Because of this the way she shot our day was special and captured everything in a way that truly reflected us. We had a bit of a unique wedding venue that entailed a steam train through the redwoods, an outdoor standing ceremony in a confined space and then an ind... Read more

  • Adriane is an incredible photographer! We are so pleased with our wedding pictures! Adriane is very creative in selecting the perfect shot and great at coming up with fun ideas. She was also open to several ideas we had at the venue. We received so many compliments on our photos and comments that she and her photography partner looked like they were having fun throughout the event. It was also wonderful to have her additional photographer the entire wedding and reception to ensure that the photos represented all that was going on. Would highly recommend her!

  • I can't recommend Adriane enough! We hired her as our photographer for our September 2017 wedding and she did an amazing job! She is very professional and always respond to emails quickly and her down to earth friendly nature immediately puts you at ease. We just received the photos from the wedding (we had her and an assistant as the second shooter) and received so many beautiful shots. Our wedding was outdoors in the Santa Cruz Redwoods and she really captured the beauty of the surroundings and how special the day was. The pictures we received are even better than we imagined!

  • Adriane is the best! We booked her for an engagement shoot and our wedding and were so pleased! Here are some of the things we loved about working with her: 1. She responds promptly to questions via email/text/phone and was on time and professional every time we met with her. 2. She's very flexible - we ended up rescheduling our engagement shoot the day of because of rain. 3. She takes beautiful photos! We have loved looking at our photos again and again, and have gotten so many compliments on them from friends, family, and friends of friends who have seen the ones we posted on Facebook. 4. She doesn't restrict what we can do with the images - we have a password-protected online gallery and can share that with other people, download full-resolution files, order prints from anywhere we want, post online, etc. 5. She's really nice! It's important to feel comfortable with your photographer, and we felt at ease with Adriane right away. We have recommended Adriane to friends ... Read more

  • Adriane is the cream of the crop. When we were looking for a wedding photographer, we needed a 'grounding force', an excellent eye, and a sense of humor. In Adriane, we got that and more. She replied quickly to my initial email, and my phone conversation with her was so smooth and natural, I knew she was our wedding photographer right then. We're not 'selfie' people, nor do we like people staring at us, so Adriane coached us on how to smile and look normal while a room full of our closest friends and family stared at us. She is a consummate professional, giving us suggestions on how to pose and cracking a joke to lighten the mood. On the day of the wedding she was there helping direct the insanity and keeping the two of us sane. She even herded our families while we were taking photos, an unenviable task. I never noticed Adriane or her assistant when the ceremony was occurring or during the party - I had other things on my mind that day - but the proof she was there was the amaz... Read more

  • Adriane and the additional photographer she worked with were absolutely amazing for us. She is so easy to get along with, and it seemed like she has a genuine passion for helping people create amazing and enduring memories. She was flexible with our needs and made everything so simple and easy. We had so much on our plate already and she was always very understanding. Our personalities were brought out so authentically, and she captured so many moments so beautifully I can't imagine having used anyone else.

  • There is no one else I could imagine having photograph our wedding- Adriane is the best! I love her beautiful style of photography, and working with her was like having a long-time friend photograph our wedding. My husband and I live in Los Angeles, but wanted to get married in Santa Cruz, and Adriane made everything go so smoothly. From our initial conversation with her on what style of photography we were drawn to, to our actual wedding day, she thought of all the little details. Our wedding was very DIY, and was a bit stressful during set-up, but Adriane was so easy going and always seemed to be one step ahead of us, and keeping us on schedule. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photos, and have several of the beautiful prints framed in our house as a reminder of our special day. Thank you Adriane!

  • Adriane was our photographer for our wedding on April 30, 2016 in Camp Campbell. I can't recommend her enough! Not only is her work gorgeous, she was an easy, fun, natural presence to have as part of our wedding day. She went above and beyond for us in a variety of ways, made us laugh and smile when we were nervous, figured out our style and used that to really capture us and our personalities, and took beautiful candid portraits of almost all of our guests. She is casual and comfortable but professional. She was super organized and helpful. Our photos turned out more beautiful than we could have imagined, and allowed us to truly relive the day and to see it from perspectives we never got a chance to be a part of on the actual day. Adriane is incredibly talented, not only with the technical aspects of her craft, but with her artist's eye and storyteller's heart, as well. We will treasure and be grateful for all of her photos forever.

  • We hired Adriane White to do our engagement shoot and wedding this coming Fall. We recently had her take our engagement photos and it went better than I could ever imagine! Not only is she very professional, but her talent is something I couldn't even fathom. She has a great eye for a wonderful setting and made me feel comfortable during the whole shoot. I am so excited to continue to work with Adriane because I know our wedding photos will be beyond beautiful. She has a way of understanding and catching those moments that you want to remember forever. If you're looking for a great photographer who is professional, well dressed, friendly and will make you feel comfortable, look no further.

  • I just got married and Adriane was in charge of capturing our big day! I couldn't have been more pleased! Searching for the right wedding photographer can be quite overwhelming, as there are many styles out there. All I knew is that I wanted our pictures to look romantic, and I knew I found it in Adriane once I browsed through her portfolio. She was so easy going, I felt like I've known her for years. She was professional throughout the entire process and was quick to answer any questions or concerns. Our pictures look timeless, romantic, and unique, which was exactly what I was looking for! She has an "eye" for things, things I wouldn't have thought of, she did! Thanks again Adriane!
