How did Perez Photography come to be?
We both always had an interest in photography and took courses in high school then a few in college and loved it. I'm not going to lie and say that we dreamed about being photographers as kids or what not. But we have always both been creative and photography allows us to express that creativity. Cesar started Perez Photography and Tanya came along a couple of years later.

How would you describe your style?
We would define our style as timeless and classic with a little bit of a modern edge. We love simplicity in everything, we think simple is beautiful!

What is your favorite aspect of the job?
Our hands down favorite thing about our job is the people we get to meet and make friends with along the way. It's definitely really interesting how as photographers we get to meet so many REALLY fascinating people... both vendors and clients.

How many people shoot for Perez Photography?
Two at the moment (Just us), we are training a third. He is currently our studio assistant and helps with editing and all of the back-end stuff. He rocks our socks.

What is the starting investment for a wedding?
Starting investment is $3500

Favorite part of the wedding day?
Tanya's favorite part is the getting ready shots, the anticipation, first dance, all of the emotions running high and all of the details. Cesar's favorite part is definitely the fun receptions, he loves when people just let loose and have a good time.

Greatest length to get the perfect shot?
Walking through Sewer water. Enough said! :)
jennifer says: now that's what I call dedication!

Anything else we should know about Perez Photography?
We love Sprinkles, love to travel, and are pretty laid back.

Childhood Ambition?
Tanya wanted to be a singer/dancer ... doesn't everyone? Cesar wanted to be a famous painter.

Dream Vacation?
Greeeeece! Ahhhh, one day!

Favorite animal at the zoo?
The Gorilla!
jennifer says: I see a great Halloween prank in the works...hmmm, involving a gorilla

Can't live without?
Our I-Phones, that’s totally lame we know, but we don't know what we did before we had them. But truly we couldn't live without the support of the people around us.

Hidden talent?
Cesar can draw really well! Tanya is really good at remembering numbers in general, (Phone numbers, license plate numbers, etc) it's really weird.
jennifer says: wow, me too, I am freakishly good with numbers

Favorite quote?
One of them is "If you'll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives" by Vince Lombardi
jennifer says: I love a good sports quote

Best compliment ever received?
The best compliment that we have ever received is being hired to shoot other wedding photographers weddings. It's crazy nerve wracking but so flattering all at the same time.

If you weren't a photographer, what would you be?
Tanya would probably be a teacher; Cesar would probably be a graphic designer

Describe your perfect day?
Just spending time with all of our families together, and having them all in one place at the same time. We have family that lives all over so that's hard to do. That would be our perfect day.
