Kind Words

“THANK YOU Toni so much for the gorgeous photos! I’m soooo in love with them, truly. Honestly, they are perfect, the exact vibe I was hoping for! The emotion and connection between all of us, the setup turned out phenomenal, and I just LOVE that spot… We will definitely be hanging these on our wall!! Thanks for making my family photo dreams come true! xo”

“We met with Toni for dinner before our engagement shoot in Lake Tahoe and she was such a sweetheart!! She made us feel comfortable from day one as we bonded over tacos and margaritas! Toni is incredible and works some serious magic behind her camera! When we first saw our photos we felt so happy! I felt goose bumps!! They were exactly what we had wanted! I couldn’t believe how good we looked 😉 You definitely have some serious magic to make two incredibly awkward people feel and look great in the photos!! It’s hard to pick just one favorite part of the session since we spent more than 95% of it laughing! The session was so lighthearted it made us feel incredibly comfortable and it really felt like “us.” We didn’t expect to feel so at home in front of a camera. We felt like you really took care of us, especially helping us out with carrying all sorts of things – including our dogs! I think we felt the most comfortable we’ve ever been in front of a camera – and we’ve done several live and recorded news pieces for the press. Toni’s spirit behind the camera really brings out the best. Toni’s communication was great! We were back and forth via email, IG, and text and she was responsive to all communication, questions, and suggestions that I had. If you’re on the fence about booking Toni, don’t be. You won’t regret it!”

“We honestly were so happy with our photos and spent the whole time smiling and laughing at each other while looking through them lol! Toni made us feel like we could be models too hehe. Exploring Big Sur was amazing and it was more beautiful than I could’ve imagined – the sunset, the beach, but most importantly was having Toni there to capture those moments for us. Couldn’t have picked a better location or photographer! She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera!”

“Everything was perfect. Toni is professional, prompt, and she did an amazing job of keeping the bridal party and photos on schedule. She provides clear direction/communication and maintains a level of kindness that makes it so easy to work with her. I was planning my wedding from Northern California and our venue was 4 hours south in Santa Barbara county. Weddings are a very stressful time. One thing I did not have to stress out about was photos. Having Toni as our photographer put us at ease and we knew every photo would be magic. Toni’s photos take me back to the very moments during my wedding that made me so happy. I was beaming with joy when she sent them to me! We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to photograph our big day. Thank you Toni!!!”

“I just received my full gallery from Toni this morning & I could not be happier. Toni made these experience so fun, happy & full of love. I originally found Toni through mutual friends who got their engagement photos taken by her. I knew I wanted to book her but needed to find the right time. My moms been asking for family photos so I took the opportunity to book Toni for a weekend in SLO. We got an airbnb & she & her pup Harley were able to stay with us. It was so fun & her happy & supportive instagram is truly how she is in real life. We shot in two locations – our airbnb & the beach. She helped us pose & gave us so many good tips that made our pictures turn out soooo good. I seriously can’t believe she made our awkward selves look so good!! She even sent us some sneak peaks that night – how friggen amazing is she!? I will seriously cherish these photos forever & cannot wait until we get engaged/married so she can take our photos again ps her turn around times are crazzzzy fast (my friends are photogs & they promise much longer turnaround times trust me lol), I am genuinely genuinely so happy!!”

“Toni G. is truly a GIFT from the photography gods.  She captured our engagement photos and wedding day photos & we truly could not have asked for a more perfect person to do so. With every click through our gallery (literally every click) were were saying “SO good” “LOVE that photo”… we could not stop smiling, shed happy tears, & can’t wait to post these every day for the rest of time & show our kids some day 😉 The best way to describe what’s ‘special’ about Toni is her unique and personal style of photography – it’s truly ethereal. She has a gift! Toni captured so many special moments that allowed us to relive our emotions all over again. Honestly, I don’t think there’s another photographer out there who we could possibly feel more comfortable with! Toni became a true friend to the both of us right off the bat – even before meeting in person for the first time! We had such a relaxing and FUN experience & could not have asked for anything more! BOOK HER! We love you Toni!”

“WORDS CANNOT EXPLAIN HOW MUCH WE LOVE OUR PHOTOS!! In just a few short hours you captured our love in so many photos. During the shoot, you made us feel so comfortable and we had such an amazing time. We were so nervous we wouldn’t know how to pose or that we would look goofy in all of them but with your guidance they came out better than I could have ever asked for. These photos will be something we forever cherish. This is a time in our life where we are starting a new chapter and having them to look back on are priceless. Thank you so much. Soooooo maternity pictures next?? lol ;)”

“Toni of Toni G Photo, was the best photographer my Husband and I could have ever chosen. She took both my engagement photos and Wedding Photos and the products from both shoots were WORKS OF ART. The awkward giggles between my Husband and I some how were transformed into photos I would cherish forever. After repeatedly saying “we aren’t models”, ” are you sure we are doing this right” and “are you sure you want us to do that” I was sure that when we got our photos back I would like a maximum of 2 photos. Once I received the photos (EXTREMELY FAST TURN AROUND TIME I would give her 5 stars just for that) I was SHOCKED because Toni had transformed us into super models. I would hire her again and again and again. You can not go wrong with hiring this SWEETEST human, who also take amazing photos.”

“There are no words to describe how perfect our photos turned out! We feel as if we now have a timeless treasure to show our future children, and hold dear to our hearts forever! I never knew that photos ( they are so much more than that!!) could be so precious to us! Our photos are amazing and I’m having a hard time not posting & printing every single one of them!! We both can’t stop looking at them and telling each other how much fun we had with this whole experience! IT WAS AMAZING! Our favorite part was that it seriously felt like a fun romantic date that we couldn’t stop talking about! Toni made us feel SO comfortable and it was SO MUCH FUN!!! SERIOUSLY TONI IS PERFECT!! Thank you so much for this experience! I hope you know you are stuck with us for life! Xoxo”

“We’ve never been more excited to share pictures of us with friends and family! We literally couldn’t stop ourselves from posting them on social media. Toni truly captured the essence of us. We will forever treasure these photos + look forward to looking through these for many years to come and remembering how it felt to be so in love! Toni’s guidance was extremely helpful — everyone keeps telling us we’ve never looked happier! Earic’s favorite part of the session was the twerking lol! Toni was extremely clear + concise when communicating through the booking and her laid back attitude made it so easy to wing it when we didn’t have an exact location on the day of the shoot!”

“We’re GAHTDANG THRILLED with our photos! For any amount of “lack of talent” we felt going into it you made us look like models. We have NO photos together (besides like wimpy phone selfies) and to have such amazing photos that reeeallly capture us being us and how much we love each other made us both emotional, especially thinking of looking back on them when we’re old and our kids or grandkids seeing them. I know I’ve said it a million times already, but I can’t think of a better word, you are magic!! ? it was a billion times more relaxed and easy going than I thought it would be, which made it all the more fun! You have a very special character trait of making people feel like you’ve been their best friends their whole life and in all their past lives!!”

“Toni, seriously the world needs more amazing humans like you. Our session with you was amazing!! You went above and beyond for us<3 The fact that you went out of your way to put it all together: the flowers, the setting… I cannot tell you how happy I am that we chose you for this very important shoot. You made it so fun and comfortable!! You are like the best hype man a girl could ask for… I felt like JLo herself!! Thank you a million times for capturing exactly what we wanted!!<3”

“It was fate how we met Toni. From the very beginning Toni was over the top friendly & down to earth but yet professional and extremely passionate about her work. My husband isn’t very comfortable in front of a camera but Toni made our photo shoot SO MUCH fun by letting us be our goofy selves which allowed her to capture our personalities and love so candidly. We absolutely Love our photos so much and love Toni even more! Thank you so much Toni!!”

“A couple months ago Andy and I had the best date of our lives. We retook “wedding” photos in Yosemite with the incredible sweet and talented, Toni. I’m not particularly comfortable posing for pictures, but Toni was so down to earth and prepared with incredible prompts that brought out our personalities and made for the most authentic photos Andy and I have ever taken. When you’re married for years, have kids, move through life, day in day out, it’s easy to become disconnected and forget what sparked your love in the first place. Toni encouraged us to rewrite our vows and captured that emotional moment so perfectly that i fight tears just looking at it. This experience was a priceless reminder of our young love.”

“We are beyond the moon over how our photos came out! We went into it totally awkward and not knowing what we got ourselves into… but Toni was so good at making us laugh that we were comfortable in a matter of minutes! As it turns out, my now fiancé and Toni had been secretly coordinating this proposal for weeks and he popped the question during the shoot! I was so surprised/ happy and the best part is we get to remember that moment forever with the photos Toni captured. I would recommend this talented little lady to anyone/ everyone!”
