Los Angeles Engagement Photographer

Hello, I’m Heidi Garcia, a Los Angeles engagement photographer. My approach to engagement photography is to capture your personalities while guiding you through a relaxed and light-hearted photoshoot. When thinking about your Los Angeles engagement photography, I recommend picking a location that you love and reflects your style and vibe. The beautiful thing about LA engagement pictures is that we have so much variety for locations. Do you want your engagement photos to have the ocean backdrop or the city skyline? Or maybe you want to have an engagement photo shoot that takes place around nature and greenery. Having photographed all over Los Angeles county, I’m happy to make some recommendations. Ready to book your engagement photoshoot? Let’s talk!

Heidi is simply such an Amazing and talented photographer!

She did our wedding photos in the middle of the pandemic. She was very creative in picking the location and matched exactly what we wanted. We loved all our pictures. She was able to let us have all our Beautiful pictures! I loved the black and white version of our pictures too. She sent us 14 pictures in the same night and the rest of our pictures in a few days after the wedding. She was very professional and at the same time very easy to talk to. She had her mask on the whole time during the 5 hours too. We recommend Heidi for our friends and family and looking forward to working with her in the near future! Thank Heidi


Heidi is such a talented photographer.

I’m not a fan of taking pictures but knew our wedding needed to be documented and she did an AMAZING job at making us look great! The entire time she made sure we were comfortable. She even saw the pain in my face from the heels I was wearing and totally made me feel guilt free in just taking them off and taking pics barefoot. We are all so lucky to have had her that day. On top of that, she’s a complete professional. Responds to emails/texts quickly, showed up on time, and even followed up afterwards to make sure we were happy with the pics. Not to mention we got all of the pics the night of the wedding! We will definitely be using her talent for future events!


Heidi did an incredible job capturing the emotions and energy of my wedding day.

She was present but at the same time I barely noticed her presence. Her photos came out amazing and I haven’t stopped looking at the photos since I received them. What I love most about her work is how not staged the photos came out. I am someone who is pretty uncomfortable during staged photos and she managed to capture portraits of my husband, family and bridal party in a way that felt natural to me. I can’t sing her praises enough. I would recommend her to anyone and have already encouraged a number of my engaged friends to consider her.
