Orange County Wedding Photographer:
A quick word from the Owner of TNK Photo
When I first started as a photographer, it came from a place of passion. I found that wedding photography is something I genuinely love doing. This passion for photography was the most important aspect when I first began TNK Photos. As the owner/Founder of TNK Photo, I became fascinated with portrait photography along with proper professionalism, background, and expertise to mold together a successful business in hopes of making my dream come true.
During my younger years, while residing in New York, I decided it was time to receive proper education and learn professional techniques for wedding photography. After graduating from a program at school I headed toward California chasing my dream and considering, “What’s the worst that could happen?”. I had a similar thought when I first decided to become a professional photographer.
Let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made!
California Wedding Photographers
After living in California for a while, I met a few Orange County Wedding Photographers who also shared the same devotion to photography. One by one, I started to educate and teach others how to shoot with expertise and adeptness. Through this method, I had the realization that I was onto something significant: thus, TNK Photo was born & evolved into the business it is at present!
Here at TNK Photo, I want to clarify that we hire off of passion, love of photography, and being a genuinely good person. Having devotion, ardor, and excitement towards photography is also paramount. Although through training, we can make anyone a great photographer, a self-driven personality is the most important aspect. A driven personality goes beyond and inspires, as a ripple effect, the rest of the team. Each new team member is personally trained on achieving that signature TNK Photos look as well as bringing their own creative flare to the table.
Every moment whether it is at an elegant Orange County Wedding or a private photo-op, I am grateful to have made the choice to strive for my dream and live it every day successfully. It was a decision that helps others capture those special moments forever, and I feel a sense of pride that I can celebrate my client’s occasions by providing the best for them. We’re extremely happy we made the choice to spend your happiest days with you!
“Masters of their craft and always go the extra step”
The photographers at TNK Photo are amazing. Elmer and Sergio are masters of their craft and always go the extra step to make your special moments that much better. I’ll let the photo I provided speak as a testament to the skill and professionalism of TNK Photo. They photographed our wedding, now our 10 yr anniversary and who knows what else in the future!
“They are a joy to work with from beginning to end!”
As a wedding planner, I get to work with many photographers, and Elmer and his team are among the best!!! Not only do they create amazing, creative images that their couples and vendors love, but they are a joy to work with from beginning to end! They’re warm, efficient, great communicators, and so positive. They make the wedding day relaxed, fun, and memorable. I can’t wait to recommend Elmer and his team to all my couples!
“Elmer and his team juggled a newborn and my two dogs seamlessly”
TNK Photo captured a very special moment in my life as we welcomed our baby into our family. Elmer and his team juggled a newborn and my two dogs seamlessly; we had so many beautiful shots in an hour session. No time was wasted and each moment was filled with a lot of laughter and smiles. Their kindness and professionalism really makes them family and creates such natural shots. They recommended the perfect location, recommended natural poses/angles, and edited photos so quickly we were able to share our new joy with our family with beautiful photos. I cannot speak more highly on the quality of each photo and how you captured the sunset perfectly. Thank you for freezing time with our son; we’ll cherish these photos always. You made this new mom feel beautiful on Mother’s Day!
“TNK Photo is an amazing photography company!”
Their engagement shoots have such an artistic and romantic style like I have never seen. Their communication pre wedding day is great and they are very professional. On the day of the wedding, the photographers are caring, authentic and easygoing while still being professional and on schedule. Their energy is fun, friendly yet still on point with photos. I highly recommend!
At Your Side Planning
“They are outstanding!”
My venue suggested them to use as our photographers, and when I reached out to Elmer, he let me know he would be out of town, and we can use Sergio, and we are so glad we did. It is awesome to know that we were in such great hands! They have great response time, and crafted their emails so thoughtfully and were great! Sergio was outstanding start to finish. He helped us get positioned so we looked the best, and used the engagement session to prepare us for the wedding. The day of wedding we went offsite to take photos, and used his suggestion on where to go, and it was phenomenal. We had a great day, and I cannot wait to see our photos! (Update) We just got our preview shots and they are amazing! Thank you for all your hard work Sergio! I cannot wait to see the rest!
“Professional, talented, flexible, friendly, and so easy to work with”
Honored to be review #100 =) I found TNK Photo while my now husband and I were searching for wedding venues, and knew I wanted them to be the photographers for our wedding. What sealed the deal was their quick responses to my emails and their friendly nature. As soon as we booked the venue and selected a date, we booked TNK Photo. In the hectic world of wedding planning, selecting TNK Photo as our photographer was one of the easiest choices to make. Elmer, Ryan, and Kenisha were absolutely wonderful. Professional, talented, flexible, friendly, and so easy to work with. The results were amazing, and we received a few previews the following day! The turnaround time was one month, which was really quick especially considering it’s the holidays- I have friends who waited 3+ months before getting photos from their photographers. Bottom line: book TNK Photo-you won’t regret it.
“TNK photographers saved my wedding.”
NOT ALL HEROES WEAR A CAPE!
We hired a photographer (unrelated to TNK) that lost our engagement photos.
Elmer to save the day. Knowing and understanding the situation; him and his team did whatever it took in putting our mind at ease about all photos being there.The team did an AMAZING job:
- communicating with us
- quick turn around
- price is worth it
- amazing photos
- amazing videos
- gave us all the photos
- They dress professionally the day of
- Wife IS extremely happy
- somehow put her mind at ease
We will be using them again for other events & recommend to all friends and family.
We wanted Elmer as the lead of TNK; however he was already booked the day of our wedding. However, The team that was provided jelled really well and they did an amazing job nonetheless.
