  • After meeting Dustin and Courtney at the SB Wedding Expo, we knew they were going to be the perfect fit for us as our wedding photographers. They are extremely down to earth people with a beautiful talent. Throughout the entire planning process we were connected and they helped a ton in laying out the day-of game plan. We met with them a few times in person to work through the plan and make sure we were clear on all the little details. On the day of the wedding everything went seamlessly; they fit right in with us and felt like part of the group. We literally didn’t have to worry about a thing; we felt very comfortable during our photo sessions and they were great about keeping our crew together and moving, as you can imagine herding 15+ people isn’t an easy task! During the reception they played a slideshow of photos from earlier in the day which was such a treat! We also used their photobooth, which was a total hoot! Our guests loved it. The turnaround time for the actual pictur... Read more

  • Dusting and Courtney were helpful and professional and before, during, and after the wedding. We had a lot of changes leading up to the big day. They both handled all the changes admirably and worked with us to make our day special. Their pictures are stunning; all the guests were impressed. Dustin is easy to talk to and makes you feel like an old friend so the awkwardness of taking photos fades away.

  • I can't say enough about how professional, fun, competent, creative and enjoyable Dustin and his team were during my wedding. I also can not stop looking at the wedding photos and video.... over and over.... They are on my screensaver, my wallpaper, everywhere! Besides making me feel completely comfortable, they added a nice fun to the wedding and had my husband and I do creative shots that I am forever grateful to have in our wedding albums. After going through all of the pictures and the wedding video, my family and I couldn't believe all of the places they captured photographs from and they literally had EVERYTHING covered. They don't just do this as a job, I can tell that it is pure FUN for them. We had a wedding at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and the reception at the Riviera and they captured the brilliance of both environments. Dustin takes a lot of care of each and every detail and his team of the videographer and co-photographer really made my wedding so super special. Additio... Read more

  • My husband and I truly cannot say enough great things about Dustin and Courtney Waller. We met the Wallers nearly a year before our wedding at a cafe and just and talked ideas for over an hour. In addition to being extremely professional, they were personable and "real" and just a pleasure to work with! Throughout our planning process, Dustin and Courtney answered every question we had and were extremely meticulous about planning our preferred photo list. On wedding day, they went above and beyond to make the entire bridal party comfortable and created a fun and easy going atmosphere (which the groomsmen especially appreciated). The two traveled from various venues throughout the day to make sure they captured every aspect of our wedding day. Now that we have seen the pictures, we LOVE them even more! Our pictures are incredible and each time we look through them we relive the genuine happiness we felt that day. We would hire Dustin and Courtney over and over and have already talked ab...

  • We're so glad to have caught Dustin & Courtney in October 2014 (a year before our wedding) on our way out of a small wedding showcase in Santa Barbara. They're warm, genuine and their work is beautiful. We booked them right away, even tho we won a $300 discount from another photographer. We met with Dustin at our wedding venue (Cold Spring Tavern) a month before our wedding day and it felt more like hanging out with an old friend than meeting a vendor. Dustin helped us with our timeline for the day, which we were clueless about! On our wedding day, Dustin and Courtney came on time and blended in with our family and friends right away. We felt super comfortable with them the entire time and trust me, my husband and I are camera shy introverts. They even took us on a mini adventure before our ceremony for some awesome outdoor photo ops. They stayed the entire night of our wedding reception and afterwards, friends came up to tell us that they enjoyed meeting and talking to Dustin and Cour... Read more

  • We can't recommend them highly enough. We were organizing everything from Japan and not doing a very good job of it. Dustin managed to coordinate all our ideas and take fantastic pictures of everything too. Thanks to them we have a beautiful record of our most special day. It is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

  • Dustin was a truly epic photographer, who created the most stunningly beautiful engagement photos and wedding day photos we could have ever hoped for! His professionalism, creative genius & artistic talent, kindness, positive attitude, flexibility, great sense of humor, and ability to make us feel comfortable were deeply appreciated. We highly recommend Dustin and will return to him for future photography needs. :)

  • Dustin Waller is incredible. We only had two months to plan our wedding and from the second I called him, I got a good vibe. He is a complete professional, showing up on time and doing amazing work. More importantly for us, he put us at ease immediately with his huge smile, infectious laugh, and obvious attention to detail. He feels like part if your family within minutes. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He was prompt, a total professional, and his finished work is amazing. If you want a great photographer who will make your day seamless, Dustin should be your first choice. Andrea

  • I found the Waller's website and knew I was going to choose them just after looking through a couple of their online albums. From the beginning they were responsive to emails, answered the million questions I kept producing and didn't bat an eye when I gave a shot list that was size 8 font, two pages long. They cared about getting us exactly what we wanted and the end result was hundreds of pictures that we are in love with. Dustin and Courtney got everything and also somehow also captured the mood from our nerves in the beginning to the relief and happy vibes dancing around all night. I definitely recommend!

  • Dustin and his wife Courtney were absolutely wonderful photographers for our wedding day. From the very beginning I knew it was a good fit, because they were professional but friendly and comfortable. My husband and I felt so relaxed during the photos at the wedding, because Dustin and Courtney made everything feel so natural and authentic! They are a wonderful couple and I would highly recommend them as photographers for any big event. Our pictures came out beautifully and I believe the price of their service was an excellent value. Thanks Waller Weddings! -The Leonards

  • We met Dustin & Courtney at a bridal show in Santa Barbara. There were photographers EVERYWHERE. We were frustrated and discouraged. Their photos were fine, but there wasn't a real connection with the photographer(s). Then we saw the Wallers. Right away I could tell their style was above and beyond the others. The emotion the couples were feeling in their photos was obvious and translated so well in the pictures. The set ups, angles, and use of lighting were clever. We wanted to check out all their work. While other photographers were hard pitching us, Dustin and Courtney gave us space and humbly let their craft do the talking. We immediately knew we had to book these two. We were certain we wouldn't be able to afford them, but when they gave us their quote, we were floored. The value was right in our sweet spot. Moreover, their availability to us was incredible. They checked in at the right times and helped organize our thinking so we could make the best of the experience. K... Read more

  • Dustin and Courtney did an absolutely amazing job photographing the day of our wedding. From the beginning they were very professional and prompt answering any questions we had. The day of they showed up at the time we planned for them to be there. While I was getting ready with my mom and the girls I did not even notice Courtney in the room. The whole day they just blended in and were not intrusive at all. Their pictures captured the whole day and told the story from beginning until the end. They are both so much fun and helped the whole posed picture process flow smoothly. They were able to make it more relaxing than stressful and I knew that they would capture all the pictures that I wanted. By the next day they had already sent us about 50 teasers! While opening gifts with family and friends we were able to look at the pictures and remember the day all over again! We got the rest of our pictures within a month and there are so many stunning pictures it has been hard deciding which ... Read more

  • We have recently booked Waller Photography for our wedding in June 2015 and already we could not be happier with our choice! Both Dustin and Courtney add such a personable experience to the overwhelming wedding planning. They are very open to ideas and are very willing to work with the bride and groom on any aspect of planning, and they remain very prompt in their responses to any questions we have had. Most recently we worked with Dustin while shooting our engagement pics/save the dates. We chose a new spot none of us had been to, and Dustin was very open to the idea and very helpful in making sure that we knew were exactly to go. The photo location was all worth the research! Throughout the photo session he made us feel very comfortable and at ease, constantly smiling and laughing. We love the style of Waller Photography in that they allow an artistic touch to the photographs while still allowing the raw emotion to remain visible. We received the pictures with a very quick turn a... Read more

  • Dustin & Courtney are hands down the best wedding photographers out there. When we had to move our wedding date up by six months, they still made it work and sacrificed their own wedding anniversary in the process. The best part about these two is not only are they incredibly gifted photographers, they are also the most sincere and laid-back couple you will find. We love everything about the treasures they created for us and would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a high-quality and enjoyable experience!

  • To me, one of the most difficult parts in planning a wedding is choosing your vendors. If you don't know someone who knows someone or have a referral, you're left to scavenge and sort through all the reviews online. Even then, how do you which vendor is the right fit for you?The wedding gods were smiling down on us when we came across Waller Wedding Photography. Their website drew me in, reflecting creativity and family values (with photos of their babies, awe!) We set up a phone interview with Dustin and ended up chatting for almost an hour! Usually the grooms are not as involved in the planning process, but my husband said right then and there we needed to hire Dustin and Courtney before someone scooped up our wedding date. When we met Dustin in person to go over details, he was warm, laid back, and down to earth. Exactly what we wanted Dustin and Courtney were very fun and easy to work with. Our family and wedding party who were involved with photos loved how funny Dustin was. We... Read more
