Trista took our engagement and wedding photos. She was so much fun to work with. She was on time, friendly and reliable. She made us feel at ease. She took very beautiful images. We highly recommend Trista!

Trista from Altar Image was my wedding photographer. I am a photography fiend and outcome of our wedding pictures was one of the things I obsessed about. I met Trista, we spoke about what I had envisioned for our pics. She asked me to forward a portfolio of images that would be inspiration for our pictures, In addition, Trista met with me at the venue a few days before the event and we did our final planning. On the day of the wedding she arrived when we had stated. We had planned to shoot at a state park five minutes away but everything didn't go strictly according to plan (girls make-up session run longer than time budgeted..remember that ladies ;-) ). Trista was flexible and came up with the idea that we could shoot at the venue, overlooking San Fernando Valley. Let me say, our pics are breath-taking. Two weeks after our wedding, Trista hunted me down and got all our wedding DVD (really high quality) to us. My husband and I really enjoyed working with her, and best of all many wedding guests complimented how attentive and on the ball Trista was all day. I would highly recommend Altar Image; Trista did a fantastic job!
Words cannot express how happy my husband and I are with both are engagement and wedding pictures. We had two engagement sessions and wedding photos with Altar Image. Trista and Cadence are by far the best photographers on earth. The two engagement sessions were taken at Pointe Dume in Malibu and at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Both sessions had unlimited photos and are perfect. The pictures look as if they would be in the top bridal magainzes. Our wedding pictures are also perfection. You will not be disappointed with this photographer, Trista and Cadence go above and beyond for their brides. They are the best and the entire wedding package was only $1,100! If you are most concerned about your pictures, which due last a lifetime, then you must go with altar image photography!
We love Trista and Cadence! Since Trista was already booked for another wedding on our wedding date, Cadence did our wedding and she was a complete and utter rock star. She got along great with everyone at the event, took photos like a ninja (I'd forget she was there half the time, and we have some truly amazing candids), and was completely amazing to work with. We got DVDs containing pretty much every photo that she took at our wedding, which was awesome, because it really let us go through, pick out, and edit the ones we like best to put into our album. I would absolutely recommend Trista and Cadence to anyone looking to get great wedding photos on a budget!
After a frustrating search for an affordable wedding photographer, we were delighted to have found Trista at Altar Image Photography. We liked the option of receiving our wedding photographs on CDs that we could sort through and edit on our own. It saved money and gave us complete control. Of course, for those who prefer the whole package, she can provide the "turn key" service of delivering a complete album also.
Wedding planning can be time consuming...there are a lot of things to accomplish in a short time. That made us appreciate Trista's responsiveness and punctuality all the more. It's reassuring to have a vendor who does what she says she'll do. She was quick to return phone calls or emails. She was a pleasure to work with on the big day too. She was in the background during the ceremony and, appropriately, in the thick of things during the reception. She fit in so nicely, it was almost like having a close friend who was attending your wedding offering to take your photos! The guests loved her and commented so later.
She delivered our beautiful photographs on CDs at the time promised and we were blown away by the quality and creativity. For example, she captured some wonderful photos of our rings by using stunning flowers as a background. We also appreciate that she used a variety of filters for each complete set so we could just select the look we liked for each photo.
We can sincerely and wholeheartedly recommend Trista for your big day!

We loved Trista! She was very easy to work with, and just plain fun to hang out with. Quality: I love the photos that she took. There were some shots that I would have liked to have that she missed, but that was probably more my fault to not giving her a list of my "must have shots" like many websites say you should give your photographer. Responsiveness: Trista and I emailed back and forth for several months before the wedding. She always replied to my emails within 24 hours. Professionalism: Trista was very professional, she knew how to blend in at the ceremony and not be obtrusive. Most of the time we forgot she was there! Value: We got the basic package, which did not include any photo editing. I'm totally ok with that because I can work photoshop pretty well and I didn't have the budget for any other package. Looking back, I think that it's better this way because I can choose the photos that I like best and edit them rather than having someone else choose the photos that they like best. Flexibility: Trista really excelled here. Our wedding was in Las Vegas and Trista drove all the way out from California! Even with her travel expenses she was cheaper and better quality than anyone I could have gotten in the same price range in Vegas. Our wedding day was very hectic since we didn't really have a plan and she went with the flow with ease. She was calm and patient when we were getting ready and messing around on the computer trying to get the ceremony music sorted out. She quietly worked by the window photographing my bouquets, clothes, cake toppers, etc. She showed up on time at my hotel room at noon and stayed with us the whole day until the reception ended around 11pm. We couldn't even loose her at the casino/construction/maze to the chapel! My biggest regret is that we didn't have time to go do some portrait shots with her before or after the wedding. Maybe we can meet her in Cali for a one year anniversary shoot. I would highly recommend Trista to anyone!
Trista is amazing! I couldn't be happier with my choice in photographers. She was one of the main reasons that my wedding day turned out to be so perfect! would recommend her 100%!
When my husband and I got engaged and started planning our wedding, we wanted to find a good photographer. Altar Image was recommened to us by a friend. After meeting with different photographers we decided on Trista because of the quality of her work. Trista took our engagment and our wedding photos. We were really impressed with the outcome. She took some amazing shots of us and knew how to capture the moment and scenery. We highly recommend (Trista)Altar Image for your photorgraphy needs.

My husband and I used Altar Image Photography for mutliple shoots. We first used Altar Image Photography for our engagement photos and from that day forward I knew I would only be using Altar Image, Trista captured our sillyness right along with our love for each other. I then had boudoir shots done for my Husband and they turned out so classy and beautiful, I felt comfotable with Trista and my husband was so happy with the photo's. Our next adventure with Altar Image was the big Day, Our wedding day. Trista Captured Everything from Both The Groomsman and the Groom as well as The bridesmaids and Myself getting ready to the last Toast of the night at the reception. My house is now filled with amazing photos that captured Everything along the way in My Engagement and Then to the wedding day. I can't express my appreciation for Trista, I have heard so many horror stories about wedding photo's coming out wrong and with Trista I didn't worry once and the outcome was amazing.
