  • In one word, our experience with Dustin was AMAZING! From start to finish, Dustin was so easy to work with. As soon as we had met with him, Dustin put my mind at ease about our choice of photographer! His experience and ability to relate to both my husband and I on a personal level helped me have one less thing to worry about on our wedding day. Dustin was extremely professional but still much fun to work with! He asked for our personal input but guided us with his expertise. We had such a great time discussing the wedding day photos with Dustin that even my husband, who dreaded the photography part of our wedding, looked forward to the experience. On the day of the ceremony, Dustin was great at corralling the family (and with my large family this was no easy task!) During the shoot with just my husband and I, Dustin used his creativity to capture beautiful moments that were both artistic and emotional. He kept us laughing and enjoying the moment. There ended up being so many amazing p... Read more

  • Dustin Waller is the real deal. He came as a recommendation from a friend (he shot their wedding), so my fiance and I decided to connect with him for an engagement photo session. From the moment we met him over Skype to the correspondance we've had with him since the photoshoot, he's been nothing short of friendly, professional, and responsive. It doesn't hurt that he's a darn good photographer on top of all that. He's been more than prompt with his appointments as well as deliverables. His selection of shoot location was perfect. His attitude and demeanor the day-of was fantastic. Very fun to work with - my fiance and I both felt very comfortable posing for pictures (which we normally don't!). Our pictures turned out incredibly. We're both very happy with the results. I don't think my fiance and I could have found better value for our money. The only "minus" is that he's so far away from where we live... I suppose we'll just have to make our next set of photo needs in Santa B... Read more

  • My husband and I highly recommend Dustin and Courtney Waller for wedding photography. We were originally introduced to the Wallers from a recommendation from a friend who had them photograph her wedding. At first we were hesitant because the Wallers were out of our price range. After meeting with them and seeing their photographs on their website, we decided to splurge. My husband and I agree that they were worth every penny! Dustin and Courtney are a great couple to work with. When it forecasted rain on our engagement shoot we were able to push it back a day, which was closer to Courtney's baby due date. Dustin did a FANTASTIC job at multiple locations despite keeping an ear out for his phone informing him that Courtney had gone into labor. His intuition was spot on as she ended up going into labor the next day! The day of the wedding the Waller's were very easy going. Throughout the ceremony and reception my husband and I didn't notice them as they seamlessly took photos ... Read more

  • The wallers are amazing! We did an engagement session with them and they made us feel so at ease. We had a great time just laughing and relaxing and felt like ourselves. The wallers are a fantastic couple to work with. We cant wait for our wedding day for them to capture that as well!!

  • We can not say enough for Dustin/Courtney and their team! From the second we met with them for coffee, to our engagement session, and finally the wedding, they blew us away. Dustin was so professional yet it felt like he was an old friend who you got to laugh with while he just happened to take GORGEOUS photos. Dustin has a background of shooting high fashion, and he can transform even the the most simple look and moment into something glamorous. Not only did we love and have a blast with the Waller Wedding team, we had countless compliments from our family, friends and all the other vendors. They made our day even more special than we could have dreamed up. Anyone looking for someone who can capture every moment and turn it into something beautiful; choosing Waller Weddings for your special day would be the best place to start. We wish we could do it all over again, just so we could work with Dustin! -The Burkes

  • I can't imagine our wedding without the one-of-a-kind team of Dustin and Courtney Waller. They were worth every penny, and more. We can't recommend them enough. Their pictures make our big day look even more magical than I remember it being. Every emotion was captured. The shots they took were so inventive, and the attitude they brought to our wedding day was fun and professional. By the time the day was over, I felt like they were part of our wedding party. We hung our wedding photos all over the house. We've had so many compliments. They make me wish I could get married all over again (and work with them one more time)!

  • When I first saw this couple at a Santa Barbara Bridal Show I fell in LOVE!! Before even talking with them, their decoration and photographs they presented at the show were just amazing!! Then seeing that Dustin was wearing a bow tie mad everything better!! After talking to them me and my then fiance knew we wanted them as our photographers!! They worked with us and made sure we were getting what we wanted!! When it came down to the wedding they were amazing!! Everyone loved them because they were there taking pictures, but were not in anyones way. When we were taking wedding party pictures they were making everyone laugh and have a good time!! At the reception they had a computer setup showing just a teaser slideshow of some pictures, and they made sure it was okay with us if it was there first which was very nice, because some people don't like to show pictures before they see them. When we got our pictures after the wedding it brought tears to my eyes. They captured such awesome mom... Read more

  • Waller Wedding Photography is AMAZING!!! We are so happy we chose them for our engagement photos! They are very professional, fun, and flexible. We love that they are creative, easy going and quick to respond to emails, questions, etc. We got our engagement photos back less than two weeks after our photo session. They turned out GREAT!!! We are very much looking forward to seeing them on our wedding day! :) Thank you Waller Wedding Photography!

  • Dustin and Courtney at Waller Weddings are hands down amazing! Right from the beginning, they were responsive, open to hear how we envisioned the day, and overall just a great couple to work with. On our wedding day, their professionalism shined through. They were flexible on timing (since we all know things get behind!) but we never felt rushed or stressed. They captured heartfelt candid shots throughout the day but my family, husband and I never felt like they were intrusive, just integral to making our day perfect. Their work is beautiful and I would recommend them to any of my friends or family!

  • Dan and I feel so lucky to have had Dustin and Courtney as our wedding photographers! They are so kind-hearted and genuine and we immediately felt comfortable with them. I can't overstate how important feeling comfortable is when it comes to photographers. Posing for the camera for an extended period of time can be an awkward experience unless you have a photographer that works to make you feel comfortable. From engagement shoot to the sparkler exit Dustin and Courtney were such a fun couple to work with. Planning a wedding can be so stressful and I often felt like I was just living day to day checking things off my list. But I remember our engagement shoot as such an enjoyable retreat where for a few hours we got away from that list-checking mentality and could focus on one another. Not to mention Dustin and Courtney are very good at making you laugh! During the shoot, Dustin and Courtney gave us good direction when we needed it, but also let us be ourselves. They were open to ide... Read more

  • We absolutely loved Dustin Waller! He was so amazing all around as our photographer for our intimate wedding in Ojai Ca. I knew from our emails and phone conversation I had made the right choice, even before the actual wedding. He just gave me the best vibe. He truly only cared about what we wanted, what our style was, and who we were as people. He wanted us to be happy with our photos, and that we were! He took so any photos, gave us all the rights to them within a couple weeks, and we have soooo many AMAZING photos, we can't even begin to decide which ones to order!! He was so person able and his personality made us awkward people look beautiful, because we felt so comfortable around him! He took some photos we didn't even know he was in the room for! My family raved about him after he left. He fit right in. And he did everything I asked him to, including some ideas I had forgotten that I had pinned on my pinterest board. He got on there and researched my ideas! If we renew our vows ... Read more

  • We cannot say enough about Dustin. We met with him, his lovely wife and adorable baby a couple months before the wedding to talk through our day and there was an instant click. Dustin did not just take pictures at our wedding, he became a member of our family & friends, and a part of our day. Days later people still could not stop raving about how great he was at not just making them feel comfortable in photos, but also how great of a person he is. To have the rights released for the photos within a 1 month timeframe at a very reasonable price was simply amazing! And something I know you cannot find anywhere else in the LA area. To top it off, our USB was sent to us in the most beautiful personalized engraved wood box with some gorgeous prints included. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer within driving distance! Thank you, Dustin!!

  • My husband and I had an awesome experience with Dustin on our wedding day. He is extremely personable and makes the entire process easy and fun. He was also very helpful with suggestions and helping us plan the day. We planned the entire wedding last minute, about 3 weeks before the event. It was a non-traditional wedding, involving just us and our parents on the beach, so we just needed a couple hours of photography of the ceremony and some pictures taken around town. The Wallers were very flexible about fitting us into their schedule. They also cut us a really good deal since we didn't need the normal "wedding photography" package... and maybe just because we're so cool. Dustin did the photography and is great to talk to. He made the day really fun, rather than just a bunch of stiff photo taking. He even indulged in the champagne with us! The photos had a quick turnaround, getting online in about 3 weeks, and they turned out fabulous. There's even some good ones of my husband who... Read more
