  • I hired Tim to photograph my wedding in Yosemite. I paid him a $2,500.00 deposit, with $2,500.00 owed after the wedding. Yosemite cancelled my wedding due to COVID-19. After initially promising to refund my deposit, Tim hired a lawyer instead and refused to give my money back. Then he threatened to sue me in an e-mail for the remaining $2,500.00

    responded with the following comments.

    Ouch, that one hurts. I try not to be a terrible human being, but I can understand in this case why Anthony would want to write that. :-( Let me start out by saying, I accept his 1 star review - this all did not work out well for either of us, and I can understand why he is unhappy. That said, it's probably wise to write some sort of response to help frame things. This was definitely an unfortunate event, and I worked hard to try and accommodate Anthony and his bride, but he was unwilling to work out a comprise that did not put me into a bad position. Anthony's wedding was not cancelled, but rather his reception location cancelled his reception. He could still have had his wedding in the park, but he would have needed to consider an alternate option for his reception. Instead, Anthony chose to reschedule his wedding to a future date in New Jersey that I was unavailable for. Per his contract, not only was his date reservation fee not refundable, but his final payment is still due. I then offered to waive the final payment as I feel bad for their situation, but was frustrated by his rescheduling without consulting me on how that would work from my end. He demanded that not only I fly to New Jersey on my own dime, BUT he also demanded that I NOT be paid the final amount due, AND he demanded I refund part of his original payment made to me. He then attempted to extort me for money, and that is when I asked a lawyer to correspond with Anthony as I am not comfortable with extortion. I tried to find an amicable solution for Anthony, but unfortunately he continually made it clear that he is a lawyer and that he can sue me and that I should be afraid of him. Rightfully so, I am afraid of him. Again, this is a truly unfortunate event and I accept this 1 star. Hopefully the numerous other reviews might speak better to how your experience working with me might actually play out. Anyone who wants to work with me but is curious to understand more what happened here and how the contract is written for these types of events, I would be happy to go over that in detail. Anthony, my most sincere apologies for your experience and that we couldn't come to an amicable solution.

  • We loved working with Tim! He was able to provide insight on the best places to take pictures in Yosemite, and we ended up getting shots we never thought were going to be possible. He was also great at suggesting new locations that we wouldn’t have thought of, and he was just a great guy to spend the day with. He makes sure you have everything you need before your picture date and has a fast turnaround time. We would recommend Tim to anyone!

  • Tim is not only a superb photographer, but he's a joy to work with! Easygoing, but professional. Silly, but seriously talented. He listened to what was important to us and he delivered tenfold! We're in love with our photos, and so are our families and friends. We especially appreciated that we didn't need to call Tim over to capture the fun, little moments; he knew where to be and when! If you're looking for a wedding photographer who'll capture the essence of your big day, look no further than Tim!

  • We loved working with Tim Halberg for our wedding! He was fun, friendly, and easy to work with right from the start. This was super important as we were not only working with a professional, but someone that we could relate to like a good friend. This made us much more comfortable on the wedding day too! Our photos turned out beautifully -- he captured both the biggest and smallest moments, making guests comfortable and having fun, while also being discreet when it mattered. Would definitely recommend anyone to work with Tim!

  • Tim is THE MAN!!! He was so easy and accommodating to work with right from the start! He took the time and effort to get to know my husband and I and everything we were hoping to achieve with our engagement and wedding day photos! He was prompt and and among all of the little things us brides worry about on our wedding day, Tim took all that stress away and made it all about having fun and taking all of the photos we hoped and dreamed of! He made sure that my husband and I got the pics we wanted with all family members, friends and all the little details of our special day! He truly captured our vision and bottled it up with his photos. We couldn’t have been happier and had such an easy going/fun photographer to share our most special day with! Book Tim, you’ll have zero regrets!!!

  • My wife and I got married at Arista Winery in June 2019, and Tim photographed our wedding. We looked at more than a handful of potential photographers, and Tim was the clear winner. His naturalistic photos are beyond stunning, and he blended in perfectly with our family and friends, capturing all of the important moments without over-inserting himself or his team. All of Tim's pre- and post-wedding communications were timely and professional, and he had no problem coordinating with our event planner and videographer. We cannot recommend Tim highly enough!

  • I couldn’t be happier that we had chosen Tim as our wedding photographer. We had hired him for both the wedding and a day-after shoot in Yosemite. All the photos were absolutely beautiful, the colors spot on, many of them really looked like works of art (you can see many on his instagram). Both my husband and I are a bit camera shy, but from the moment we met him on the wedding day, he made us and everyone in the wedding party feel extremely comfortable. Everything just felt so easy, there was never any stress, the entire experience was fun. I had been a bit anxious about the day-after shoot (hiking 30min in a wedding dress? Bad weather in the forecast) but he had clearly done this so many times and made it very easy and seamless for us. I love his attitude about “bad” weather (thunderclouds? Storms? Even better! We’ll get great photos!), and I think that this kind of positivity and confidence takes a lot of stress away from the couple.

  • Tim photographed my daughter's wedding two weekends ago. He was very professional. He never got in the way but still managed to get the shots that were needed.

  • Tim was amazing! My husband and I had such a great time working with him. He is really comfortable to be around. He is there when you need him and blends in like one of the guests when you don’t. He gently directed us and made us both feel really comfortable in front of the camera. He was down to going out in the freezing cold and take pictures while we played in knee deep snow. Everything felt natural even the posey pictures. We were happy with whole experience. We had a really small wedding and all of our guest couldn’t stop saying what a great time they had with him.

  • One look at Tim’s pictures and you know he’s amazing! He is also a blast to work with. We highly recommend Tim Halberg. We could not be happier with the pictures we received from our engagement session and from our wedding. Our pictures are so special to us and we feel so grateful Tim was our photographer. Look no further, if you want absolutely gorgeous photos Tim Halberg will not disappoint!

  • Tim photographed our wedding in Sonoma and he was fantastic! He captured so many amazing candid shots that were very special. Looking through the pictures he really told a story. I felt that the wall art was a must and I never tire of looking at our beautiful photos on the dining room wall. He has a great personality, he’s very witty and we highly recommend him!

  • Tim! Please choose Tim! Tim is like the cousin/best friend/patient attentive brother/ basically a super awesome guy that fits in right away and knows what to do! He is into the smallest detail! Being the non Type A bride, I didn’t pay attention to things that I should have. For example, Tim was taking pictures when I was doing my makeup. I had a hair tie on my wrist. Tim asked me if the hair tie meant anything, I said “no, Oh! I have to take that off”. Those 6 hrs were amazing and I was so happy that Tim was there to capture all of it! I had my fair share of photographers (family weddings) and I have to say that Tim is the best! I was so glad that Tim was available that day! Tim thank you again and I will never forget you:) so excited to see more of your pictures on Instagram!!

  • Our wedding happened during the Kincade fires and we had to move venues last minute. Tim and his team were flexible with the changes. Our pictures turned out beautifully and we can't wait to share them with family and cherish them for years to come. The only thing I would mention is we were supposed to have a stationary photographer ( sort of like a photobooth) but they ended up using that photographer as a second roaming photographer the day of. It ended up working out great since we got lots of amazing shots from different angles. We are really glad we booked with Tim.

  • We had Tim photograph us in Yosemite in late September. We did the full day elopement package and it was totally worth it. We let him know all the places we wanted to photograph - El Capitan, Tunnel View, Groves, Taft Point, Sentinel, and starry night and he organized it so well that we were able to do all the shots. We also felt like we got a personal tour of Yosemite in 1 day. I totally recommend using Tim, he is very knowledgeable of Yosemite and made it a fun adventure that we will always remember! Thank you!

  • We used Tim Halberg as the photographer for our wedding in Squaw Valley in September 2018. We don't live in that area and were looking for someone that could travel a bit. We got a good feeling from him after our initial phone conversation. We chose him strictly off our phone conversation and the online galleries he emailed to us. We liked his laid-back vibe and loved how he captured the vibrant colors in scenery and his candid shots. Tim made a point to ask each of us about our partner to make sure he captured moments that were special to us. We were very happy with our photos! Tim was easy to work with and did a great job. His price was similar to other vendors. We were very pleased with him and his work and would definitely recommend him.
