  • Duane is simply amazing! My fiancé and I started looking for a photographer early on since we know that the best ones are reserved early. After countless days searching for the right one, we finally stumbled upon Duane. I emailed Duane and he replied quickly. We set up a time to do a phone conversation later that day. From our first phone conversation with Duane, we knew he was the right person. Duane is easy to talk to, polite, responsive, and he knows exactly what he's talking about. We asked Duane if he could do an engagement shoot with us as it could give us a chance to work with Duane prior to the wedding. Duane graciously agreed and we decided on Joshua Tree to do our engagement shoot. Due to COVID-19, we had to push back our initial date of the engagement shoot numerous times until we finally settled on a June date. Duane was incredibly accommodating throughout this whole process and would keep us updated. On the day of the engagement shoot, Duane was easy going, patient... Read more

  • Could NOT have asked for anyone better! Not only did we get amazing pictures but I can honestly say he probably was the most responsive vendor we worked with. The day of he really set the tone with his calm demeanor yet attention to detail/timing. And best of all for us pictures didn't take much time at all after the ceremony as we did a lot beforehand. We didn’t really have much of an idea what pictures we wanted with family so let him lead the way. And of course our family had to request different ones and he was not fazed at all. Just went quickly with the flow and captured it. His attention to getting the intimate and detail shots was also great! We even re-did some photos on his advice - without taking us away from the party for more than a few minutes. He suggested several poses and shots that turned out beautiful (even though they may not have been the most natural lol). He was the perfect balance for a couple that did want some memorable pictures as we didn’t do any engage... Read more

  • Duane is a very talented artist and was the perfect photographer for our wedding! Getting ready for our big day was definitely hectic at times, especially with eight bridesmaids and eight groomsmen, but Duane was incredibly patient and flexible. In addition to having a wonderful experience leading up to and on the day of the wedding, we were extremely pleased with the quality of our photographs and are grateful to Duane for capturing the most memorable moments of our wedding that we could've ever hoped for.

  • I had no idea Id be such a mess the day of my wedding(does anyone?lol). Nothing was going right, makeup was caked, tan was orange, everyone was late, and to top things off I was coming down with the flu. I really needed someone to step in and take direction because I could barely keep it together let alone remember what the hell I wanted out of my photos. He not only stepped in and lead the way, but he did so in a manor that I also barely knew he was there, it was really more of an art. I barely had to think about anything, barely knew he was there, and that allowed me to really savor the day with my friends, family and husband Because of his experiences knew all of the right spots and areas to get the good shots, knew all the right poses. He also made sure to capture the little details of our mostly DIY, very personal, wedding décor. And stole us away from the crowds at times to make sure we got those lifetime stills every couple hopes for I was hoping to get maybe just a few... Read more

    Hi Meagan, thanks that is such a nice review. I am really happy that you have nice memories given all the little difficulties. You did have more than most but you have great friends to help :) and special thanks to the veil helper girl and guy we kidnapped and took with us for the mission shoot portion of the day. Have a great HM thanks Duane.

  • We made a great choice choosing Duane . Everything was beyond exceptional . First : he was very very patience with all the changes we kept having due to COVID-19 and not once complained we can't decide on a Date . We decided we will go ahead and tie the knots 3 days before the wedding and he was there for us. Second : he was on time and very very patience with us going from one room to another . Third: Neither me nor my husband are really photogenic. His direction made it so easy. Forth: He stayed way longer than was agreed on and he was happily there to capture the last moments . Did I mention the pictures were amazing .

  • We absolutely loved working with Duane! Our pictures were more than we could have hoped for. Duane really led a lot of the logistics for the night, including helping us sneak away from our guests to get some sunset pictures. We spoke with him a bunch of times in the planning process, and he helped to set our timeline and keep us on schedule on the wedding day. On top of that, Duane was super efficient, and we received a "teaser" of over 250 pictures within a week after the wedding. We're so thrilled with our pictures!

  • We choose Duane for our wedding based on his amazing photos. He was different than the usual photos you see. And we are so happy we choose Duane to be there on our special day as well as our engagement pictures! He has such an eye for amazing photos!

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding! HIGHLY recommend him :)

  • I cannot recommend Duane enough for beautiful engagement and wedding photos! He definitely has a skilled and artistic eye for capturing wonderful pictures and moments. My husband and I had our engagement/wedding photos outdoors and he managed to take amazing photos of not only us but the surrounding environment too. Duane is also very patient and pleasant to work with. We didn't have to think much but basically follow his instructions for each picture! If you want pictures that you'll treasure and love forever, then Duane is the photographer you're looking for. :)

  • Duane is an outstanding photographer. We initially chose Duane based off of his incredible reviews on The Knot, and the breathtaking photos on his website. We thought it was too good to be true, but both our engagement and our wedding photos have come out amazing so far. I got one of my wedding pictures back and literally thought “there is no way this is me, it looks like a model shoot for a wedding dress!” The poses may feel funny but, trust me, he knows what he is doing. 

 Duane was quick to respond by email/phone, and was on time to both the engagement and the wedding shoot. 

 We are so excited to see the rest of our wedding photos, and will definitely recommend Duane to our friends if they end up getting married in SoCal!

  • Duane is an outstanding photographer. If you compare his photos to others I think you will see the difference in lighting, artistry, creativity. We chose him for these reasons and Duane did not disappoint. He just sent us the photos and they are stunning!

  • Duane Peck was a great photographer for our wedding. It was clear early on that he has a lot of experience and knows what he’s doing. We were very impressed with his professionalism and commitment to perfectly capture all the special moments in our day. Our experience with him prior to the wedding was simple and easy. We had a few calls prior to get to know each other and get all the details sorted out. We had a brunch wedding which meant the ceremony was early in the day and Mr. Peck arrived early and was able to effortlessly work with the lighting and timing to get all the pictures. Throughout the day, we honestly didn’t even notice him around - he was so good at maneuvering around capturing everything without being noticed. We got back from out honeymoon to find that we had gotten a teaser trailer back from Duane in a very short amount of time. It was really great to be able to see some of the photos so soon. Shortly thereafter, we received all the pictures taken and were very i... Read more

  • We had 2 photographers and 1 videographer. Amazing pictures, but you can tell he's dealt with difficult clients before so he has a "listen to me I know what I'm talking about, you don't" kind of attitude. Assistants are super kind!

    Hi Evelyn, Thanks for the great review and I am glad you liked my video and 2nd shooter as well :) Also, so happy that you posted the special effects images I made for your teaser gallery! I am glad you guys wanted to go out for a few minutes after sunset. It can be difficult to step away from everyone at the reception but the images are always so special and of course you too look so happy with the great sunset sky :) I am also going to add the great images of you two on my Instagram and hopefully the #westridgegolfclubwedding section will be allowed back online from Instagram, it is currently removed? Thank you again for adding them for everyone to see and for having me at your Big Day.
