Greystone Mansion Wedding Beverly Hills - B&G Portrait



Venue: Adamson House | Location: Malibu, California

I have heard so many people say they were disappointed with their wedding photographer. This makes me so sad, because I was so incredibly happy with my choice. I cherish my photos and love every one of them. We got over 900 shots of our wedding and there isn't one I don't love. Adam and Amber were so confident and so easy to shoot with. They were so quiet I had no idea they were even there, and when we got our photos back, I was shocked he even got the footage he got, because I didn't even see him! Some photographers can get all up in your business, he was so respectful, yet somehow, got the shot! I am so happy with our choice in Embrace Life! They were so easy to work with, quick to get our photos back and cool people to work with! =) We Highly Highly Highly recommend them for your wedding!!

Adam shot our pregnancy pictures and did an amazing job! He was so incredibly patient with us and our ideas. I was close to 9 months pregnant at the time and Adam was very conscientious of that! After the shoot, he was extremely attentive to any emails and always responded promptly. We will definitely be going back to him for future shoots.

Adam captured our family beautifully in a special seaside shoot that he worked with us on. Highly recommended!

Our wedding photos are AMAZING!! Adam and Amber were truly the best. They were professional, attentive, and flexible to meet all our requests and family needs. The photos capture so many special moments from throughout our day - they are the best gift ever! I highly recommend Embrace Life Photography!

Adam created a beautiful portrait of my daughter for her work photo and business cards. I ordered a copy for myself because they came out so nice. The print was beautifully presented in a tissue lined box to keep it safe. Thanks for the exceptional work!

Venue: MountainGate Country Club | Location: Los Angeles, California

Adam and Amber were an amazing team. They were attentive, friendly, and professional. On our special day, I felt like they were a part of our family and not just guests. All our wedding pictures were worth keeping. I would enlarged all of them if I could but there would be no room on the wall to put them. They were gorgeous pictures - with great lighting and set ups. Everyone looks amazing. I truly love all the pictures they took for us. Initially, we wanted to save some money with the wedding and did not get the engagement photo, but boy, now I wish we did get the engagement photos. Maybe baby photos later instead?

I normally wouldn't take the time to write a review but our family's experience with Adam and Amber was so outstanding, I just had to share. Adam and Amber were extremely pleasant and professional, and their photographs were nothing short of PERFECT! Honestly, there isn't one bad photo in the bunch. They captured the night so beautifully, and got so many incredible shots!!! In addition they were dressed appropriately for an elegant affair. So often I attend beautiful weddings to see the photographers in junky tee shirts...Not Adam and Amber! They blended right into the crowd while doing their great work in the best way possible! I'd give more starts if I could!

Adam's work has never ceased to amaze me. He has done all of the professional portraits for my office and is able to capture and portray the unique personality of each individual he photographs. He has assisted us in choosing great locations for the photo shoots and created professional looking photos with a natural look to them. His expert approach made me completely comfortable with the entire process. I highly recommend Adam as your first and best choice in professional photography! I will not hesitate to call upon him for all my future photography needs.

Adam/Embrace Life Photography is absolutely incredible! First of all, Adam is just an absolute pleasure to work with! He is fun, amicable, and very creative.

He did my engagement photo shoot and I cannot begin to describe how happy we were with the pictures! My fiance and I were picky with the poses we wanted, but Adam was very patient and understanding and helped us achieve the exact look that we were going for. And his editing skills are. just. AMAZING. You can tell that Adam puts a lot of time and effort into each and every picture! He definitely does a great job of balancing the retouching while making sure the pictures still look very natural.

Honestly, I think he's one of the best photographers in the greater Los Angeles area, hands down!

"Modern . Artistic . Beautiful" - Like Adam said, this is exactly what you get.

I hired Adam to be my wedding photographer. I drove 3 hrs (one-way) to meet this talented photographer from San Diego. It was all worth it.

Where to start. I have so many good things to say about this guy.

He was on time, warm, polite, listened to what I needed, answered my questions, quick email response, and last but not least, he takes awesome pictures.

What impressed me the most was: on the day of my wedding, Adam arrived at a location 2-3 hours advance to see if there were any cool places to take pictures with. He is in L.A. and we are in San Diego, so he came here early to "study and research" the location.

There was a train station near a hotel we stayed, which I didn't even know that existed, and he took us there for photo-shoot. The pics Adam took were just magical, and I was so grateful that he spent extra time to find this cool spot.

He also found a blue mural on the wall of the hotel. I thought "wait a minute. This mural is too blue!!" But Adam knows how to make "ordinary" to "extra ordinary." My portrait pics with blue mural which I posted here are actually my fav pic. But I am telling you. If you look at the mural by itself, it is not picturesque at all!!

My husband and I are extremely satisfied with his work. I highly recommend Adam to be your wedding photographer.

Venue: Calamigos Ranch | Location: Malibu, California

We hired Adam George to do our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't be happier. We initially chose him for three reasons: 1. He is tall. Seriously, the taller the photographer, the thinner you look. 2. He is incredibly nice. I hate having pictures taken of myself and Adam immediately made me feel as comfortable as I am ever going to feel in front of a camera. 3. His work is great. The pictures speak for themselves.

Adam took two, awkwardly shaped, chubby, pale Jews and made us look amazing. He is so meticulous and he takes his time with you. It's like having your good friend take your pictures and do an awesome job. We highly, HIGHLY recommend Embrace Life Photography.

- Dania


Venue: Brigantine Del Mar | Location: Del, California

Adam George with Embrace Life Photography was everything we could have asked for in a wedding photographer and more! We knew many people in San Diego and were almost set on booking locally, but something told us to drive up to Calabasas and meet Adam. It was well worth the drive. His passion for photography was immediately shown through his work and his office, which was gleaming with amazing pictures. He made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable from the time we met him at his office until the time we left. We also had our two kids with us and he was more than accommodating to us and our munchkins :) That definitely meant a lot to us.

Fast forward to our wedding day:

Adam arrived early and left late on our wedding day. You knew it wasn't his first wedding shoot. He made sure he was giving us our moneys worth and getting the shots he wanted so we will remember this day forever. He looked like he was having just as much fun as we are, now thats someone that you want taking pictures on your wedding day. The beach pictures seemed like they would be a challenge with the wind that day, but Adam's expertise quickly showed us that he had everything under control and knew exactly what to do to make us feel comfortable. Our wedding pictures turned out unbelievably beautiful. We got a sneak peek just a week or two after the wedding and just received everything already a month after our wedding. We have already looked through them about ten times. We are in love!

We will forever remember Adam and how well he made us shine on our wedding day. He treated us like we were family and we had known each other for years. If anyone asks us for a wedding photographer, you better believe we will send them to Embrace Life Photography.

Venue: Private Residence | Location: Santa Monica, California

WOW! Just WOW! Adam and Amber George are such an amazing team. Not only are Adam and Amber extremely pleasant to work with, but they are professional and really take the time to create and capture every shot perfectly. I am absolutely amazed with all of my wedding photos. The pictures are absolutely perfect. Every shot looks unbelievable. There is not one photograph I do not like. I highly recommend Embrace Life Photography for your wedding.

Thank you Adam and Amber for giving my husband and I the greatest wedding gift... memories for a life time!

- Priscilla


Venue: Belmond El Encanto | Location: Santa Barbara, California

Adam is SUCH an incredible photographer! I hired him after working with him for two other girlfriends' weddings - and seeing how incredibly professional he was, how much fun he was to work with, and ultimately how AMAZING his work is!!

I am a huge fan of his clean, crisp images - and he has an unparalleled eye for perfect lines and shot set ups. My fiancé and I had our engagement shoot at four different locations with several different outfits, and he captured so many unbelievable shots in the midst of all that variation.

Adam is also great at directing during a photo shoot - we had no idea what we were doing, and he did a great job of telling us where to walk, how to turn our faces, where to stand, etc. I highly recommend him as his prices are reasonable, he is extremely personable, and just an awesome guy to work with. Can't wait to see our wedding shots!

- Jessie


Location: Los Angeles, California

We used Adam for our corporate headshots and would gladly hire him again (and most likely will!!) Adam was punctual, professional, friendly and took a darn good headshot. He also delivered the finished product to us in a very timely fashion. There really is not much more you could ask from a professional photographer and you will not be disappointed with his work ethic or his photographs.
- Katie


Venue: Avalon Palm Springs | Location: Palm Springs, California

When my husband (then boyfriend) and I found out we were pregnant we decided we wanted to have a private wedding without family in Palm Springs (somewhere warm). Needless to say our families were pretty disappointed, but understood.

When we found Adam we just wanted someone there to document our special day. We had no idea how amazing his pictures were going to be. He was so accommodating and had our first shot set up before we arrived and had even scoped out Palm Springs the day before looking for creative shots.

He made our private little wedding day very real and an awesome way to announce to all our friends and family (that didn't know) that we got hitched. Since then we still receive compliments on our pictures.

Adam is an amazing photographer, professional, and just a great guy that instantly makes you feel comfortable. Our wedding day would have been an entirely different experience without him.

Oh and our families forgave us once they saw the pictures :)

Location: Newport Beach, California

Adam is truly THE best wedding photographer around. We found Embrace Life Photography through a friend's recommendation. After looking at our friend's wedding pictures and the photos on the Embrace Life website, we fell in love with his work! Adam made the commute from Los Angeles to Orange County to meet with us at our convenience. He was professional and very interested in getting to know who we were as a couple so he could capture our wedding in a style that would reflect our unique relationship. He did our engagement photos and we loved them so much that we want to use him for our destination wedding in Cabo next October. Adam is a true artist and I highly recommend his work.
- Casey


Venue: Chappellet Vineyard | Location: St. Helena, California

Adam, after months of looking at friends wedding pictures and always flipping through ours in comparison of course, we have realized how blessed we are to have had such an amazing photographer at our special day. Thank you for the beautiful work you have done and creating memories that will really last a lifetime for us.

I just wanted to tell you how much we love the work you did for us.

I hope you are well and have a great start to a busy wedding season:)

- Sarah & Jason


Venue: Loews Hotel | Location: Santa Monica, California

Adam is a fabulous photographer with a great eye for getting just the right shots. I could not have been more pleased with his work. I highly recommend him to any bride looking for a fun, original style of photography for their big day.
- Nicole


Location: Santa Monica, California

I found Adam on Yelp and he made me a Rock Star Santa Claus! For two years my wife's request for Mother's Day and Christmas has been a family portrait. We live in Minnesota and planned a Christmas trip to Santa Monica, so when we exchanged gifts the night before our flight my wife just figured that her Homer Simpson of a husband had once again missed the mark. Little did she know that waiting at the Santa Monica Pier was Adam and his cameras. And did he ever deliver! Gorgeous photos. Wonderful composition. Just an amazing experience with a terrific photographer. It was the perfect beginning to our trip, and the ideal end to my history of not getting the right gift. I can't recommend Adam highly enough. His photos will be part of our family for decades.
- Patrick


Location: Calabasas, California

We have hired Adam for the last 3 years to photograph our family. He is not only talented and professional, he is patient and genuinely interested in getting the very best result. We have been hiring photographers for the last 25 years and he is clearly among the very very best! I can not recommend him more highly!
- Scott


Venue: Four Seasons Los Angeles | Location: Beverly Hills, California

Hire Adam he is the best of the best. I am so happy with my wedding photos!!! Him and his wife did a wonderful job at my wedding and they are just so kind.
- Catherine


Location: Santa Barbara, California

Bottom line, your finished product from Adam will be nothing short of amazing! He did family photos for us on the beach in Santa Barbara and he captured absolutely beautiful images of us all!! We had four kids all under 4, and he did a great job with them and getting them to smile for the camera. I have a beautiful print hanging in my home I look at everyday and am so happy with. He's a professional and it shows!
- Adelle


Location: Anaheim, California

I had the pleasure of working with Amber and Adam to photograph my daughter for her senior portraits at the happiest place on earth! I wasn't quite sure how it was going to work at first but they both were amazing! They were patient, waited for people to pass before getting the right shot. We all had a great time and needless to say the pictures came out perfect! He captured my daughter's true personality and she absolutely loved all the photographs. It was a true experience we will not ever forget! Now we know who to hire for her wedding pictures (at the happiest place on earth, of course)!!
- Lucia


Venue: Calamigos Ranch | Location: Malibu, California

My wife and I found Adam on of all places Facebook. After talking to him and seeing his work we asked him to shoot our Engagement photos and Wedding. That was six and five years ago respectively. He was professional, nice, funny, talented and above all he was able to capture intimate moments without being intrusive. He honestly has become a friend. For those of you looking for a wedding photographer, his most priceless quality was he able to wrangle the entire family for photos as well as keep an amazingly cool head and smile when dealing with "Hard to Deal With" family members.

I could not say enough nice things about him both professionally and socially. His talents lend him to both traditional shots as well as unique perspectives that never come close to hokey.

We recently had him shoot some family portraits and with an energetic 2 year old, without a nap, he must have been some sort of Demi-God to get the shots he did. Adam got our son to smile and hold still long enough to get some priceless moments. He shoots at amazing locations. He's flexible. He's professional and on top of it all he's nice.

We absolutely lucked out finding him and are lucky to be able to employ his talents. He is a diamond in a see of people calling themselves "photographers" simple because the have an expensive camera and a hipster vest.

It was a long and arduous search to find him for us, and hopefully this review, and the others touting his abilities, make your search a whole lot quicker than ours was.

Venue: Private Residence | Location: Malibu, California

After looking at many photographers, we chose to work with Adam and Embrace Life Photography. They did an amazing job! The entire team was friendly, professional and captured every single sweet moment throughout the night. We chose not to hire a videographer in the hopes that our pictures would tell the story of the night and Embrace Life told the story perfectly! The pictures are so beautiful that our wedding was 8 months ago and I still can't narrow down my favorites so I can create an album. I can't wait for our next celebration so that we can work with Adam and his team again!

Venue: Calabasas Country Club | Location: Calabasas, California

Adam George and Embrace Life Photography are truly amazing. Our photographs came out more vivid and vibrant than I could imagine, almost more beautiful than being there in person. Every detail was captured brilliantly. Adam definitely has a talented eye for beautiful photography and is a very charming person to be with and work with. Even the presentation of delivery of our photos afterwards was classy and surprising. We very much appreciate his hard work and dedication in creating the perfect memories of our important life journey. Thank you to Adam and the Embrace Life family. If you're looking for photographs that will steal your heart and imagination look after look, then Adam's your man.

Venue: Golden Gate Park / Shakespeare Garden | Location: San Francisco, California

After seeing Adam's work and meeting him, we knew we had to have his as our wedding photographer. Adam is super talented, has great attention to detail and is very thorough in finding out what we like and don't like. He's even great catching candids and making you look great! All of Embrace Life's photos turn out beautiful! Check out his website if you haven't already! embracelifephoto.com

We couldn't be happier with our wedding photos because they are AMAZING! We highly recommend Embrace Life Photography to photograph your wedding! Adam's awesome!

- Lindsey


Venue: San Jose City Hall Rotunda | Location: San Jose, California

Embrace Life shot our wedding last month and the pictures were amazing. We checked out at least five other photographers leading up to the wedding, but we are so glad we made the right choice with Embrace Life. Everyone we know has commented on how beautiful the pictures turned out and we would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Adam and his wife are awesome photographers... they are very professional and at the same time are very friendly and easy to work with, which made us and our party so comfortable. Thanks again Adam... you guys are awesome!

Venue: Stinson Beach Community Center | Location: Stinson Beach, California

I found Embrace Life Photography through a MySpace ad. Their website said it all. The photos were beautiful! I had assumed they just chose the best pictures they've ever taken and posted them there to get business but I was wrong!

The moment I met them on my wedding day they were already snapping photos, eager to get started! I don't know how to pose for photos at all and they managed to make me feel like a super model on my wedding day! They took photos of details I had completely overlooked, things that whizzed by me because of the days events. Now I can remember those things forever!

The photos they took turned out absolutely amazing. They were just like the ones on the website! They looked like something you would see in a magazine. I get all teary eyed every time I look through the photos! They are so beautiful!

Embrace Life Photography even travels. They are located near Los Angeles. My wedding was at Stinson Beach at the end of a very twisty and car-sick road about 8 hours from them, and they came! The price was even just right. I researched many other photographers. You want your day to be captured perfectly in every way since you only get one chance, you can't go back and take more pictures, so I was as picky as they come. With money as tight as it is for us, Embrace Life definitely didn't break our budget, everything was priced so reasonably.

All in all, I highly recommend Embrace Life to anyone looking to capture their wedding day in a tasteful, elegant way! 100% Perfect!

Venue: The Lodge at Sonoma | Location: Sonoma, California

We chose Embrace Life Photography to be our wedding photographer. As every couple knows, your wedding photographer is one of the most important part of your wedding because your photos will last a lifetime! We would not have changed anything. We were extremely satisfied on all levels with Embrace Life. From the attention to detail to capturing moments we don't even remember, they got it all and the album shows it! On to the album, we absolutely love the album. I chose a handful of photos I really liked and let Embrace Life do the rest and it turned out beautifully. I truly can't say enough good things about them. I am an event planner and know how important good, reliable and responsible vendors are to have. Thank you Embrace Life!
- Ashley


We are writing to let you know that we are BEYOND thrilled with our wedding album. It is absolutely beautiful and has totally exceeded our expectations. You truly captured the essence of our wedding and us in the photos you took and we are forever grateful. Can't wait to use you again for future life occasions. Thank you to Adam, Amber and Embrace Life!!!
- Carly and Ben C.
Never in my life have I had so much fun in a photo shoot! Adam is amazing! Not only is he kind, professional and dependable, but his ability to capture a moment is far beyond what I have ever seen. He will make you feel comfortable, and will find the expressions of who you truly are. Yes, he is a photographer, but in him I have found I friend. If you need anyone to make you feel special on your day ~ he's the one. I will forever recommend him and his talents to everyone I know. Thank you, Adam!
- Lindsay K.
We've had time to share our albums with others. They are all amazed. The photography is gorgeous. There have been some comparisons made by friends to the photography of their own children's weddings, and your photography is many cuts above. Since we have just moved here, quite a few people have toured our house, and they always see my framed 8x10 and 4x6s and remark about their beauty.

You were an outstanding photographer to have at Carrie's wedding - outstanding in both personality and talent. I know I was a bit tense, and you were calm. I really appreciate all you did at the wedding and after it.

- Gail P.
What wonderful photos you've taken of Evan and Christina's wedding day! You've given us all such beautiful memories to look back on. I love the black and whites! What a great addition. Thank you so much for your creativity, your talent, and your photos which are such a gift to us all.
- Kathy S.
John & I are so very pleased with your photos of our daughter's wedding. Incredible!!! When I watched the slideshow, it brought a tear to my eye. It will be a tough job to narrow our choices!!!!!!! Thank you for recording for all time, the most important day in our lives.
- Carolyn N.
The pictures are FANTASTIC! We loved them! Thank you for making the process so easy!
- Christina N.
The pictures are absolutely amazing. I can't tell you how many folks have told me that these are the best wedding photos they have ever seen (and these are art directors and people whose opinion I respect).

I want to thank you again as it was a pleasure working with you and a real treat to see how amazing the photography turned out.

- Michael P.
The photos are GORGEOUS!! We've looked through the slideshow and gallery so many times, and you did such an amazing job, we love them! And thanks for getting them to us so quickly, we've heard horror stories of 6 months or even a few years before people have gotten their pictures. So THANK YOU! We were so lucky to have you as our photographer!
- Samantha U.
The portraits are absolutely gorgeous! We're not sure whether you're a photographer or a plastic surgeon ... You've made us all look sooooo good. We also love the beautiful beach setting, the serene colors, and your artistic attention to details. We can hardly wait to get each photo matted, framed and hung. This is truly art! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job for us, Adam. Thank you for giving us portraits we'll treasure for a life time.
Dan, Jennifer & Amelia-Grace
Hey Adam. wow. Nicole and I are very impressed with the images. We had a great time on our wedding day and the photos definitely reflect our memories. You did a great job capturing important moments (scheduled and not), the people there and some good old fashioned partying. Thank you.
- Keith M.
They are great!!!!! I love them all!!! You did an amazing job....you are definitely gifted...Thanks so much for everything...
- Ashley H.
Yet again I can not thank you enough for making yesterday not only pain-free, but genuinely fun. I don't think I could have enjoyed myself more if I had tried. Having to kiss Lindsay and cuddle up with her as part of "What I am suppose to do" was pretty nice.
- Ryan S.
So amazing. wow!
- Riley H.
Hi Adam,
I am back from the honeymoon and finally got a chance to look at the pictures. They are absolutely wonderful, thank you so much for everything!
- Ariane C.
I want to let you know that you get a lot of compliments from people seing the pictures. Even one of them told me it was the most beautiful wedding pictures she ever saw! And you know what? I agree! I watch the slide show a least twice a day! Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.
- Marie P.
We absolutely love the pictures. You truly captured the details of the wedding. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I'm happy to be able to share this and spread around how awesome your photography is! Bless you Adam!
- Rachel F.
I want to thank you for doing such a great job, we are both very pleased with your work and will definitely recommend you to all our friends and family in the future. Your gift and talent were such a blessing to us.
- Andrew K.
The pictures are sooo awesome!! We are VERY pleased!! Thank you :)
- Tricia K.
The pictures were awesome--everyone who has looked at them has said how great they are. It's so hard to choose which one is my favorite of me and Patrick. Dena (bridesmaid) and Melissa (bridesmaid) both really liked all the pictures and how "arty" they looked. :) Melissa said you were much, much better than the photographer at the wedding she was in last April.
Take care,
Elise S.
These photos are absolutely AMAZING !!!! Wow !!! Thank you sooooo much for coming over that evening, your photos will help us and all our guests relive the evening again and again!!
